Nike Unveils New-Look Uniforms For '14 Pro Bowl Game
Published October 9, 2013
NOT FANS OF THE DESIGNS: ESPN's Tony Kornheiser said the uniforms "look like robot things to me." Kornheiser: "I can't imagine a fat guy wanting to wear this because they're very, very clingy." He added, "Years from now, people are going to look back on these uniforms and on the Pro Bowl itself and they're going to say, 'What were you people thinking?'" ESPN's Michael Wilbon said every time "people create new uniforms, helmets, all these concepts, they are to appeal to 5- to 10 year olds. They don’t even care about 30 year olds" ("PTI," ESPN, 10/8).
