FYI for what already many suspected.


Those supposed Nike uniform sketches are fake

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 19, 2010, 1:51 PM EST

So PFT has received a bunch of emails over the last couple of days from readers sending us pictures of supposed “concept sketches” of future NFL uniforms by Nike that leaked to the web. The shoe company takes over as the league’s official supplier in 2012.

Darren Rovell of CNBC has confirmed the pictures are fakes, apparently made to trick fans and send them into a frenzy. It basically worked.

I have to give credit here to Florio for quickly smelling a rat. He didn’t want to post about them because he never bought they were real, even after the Ravens’ official blog wrote an article breaking them down. (You can see all 32 fakes there.) Bill Belichick was even asked about the supposed Patriots uniform on Friday.

“Is it Halloween?” Belichick said via Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald. “Wasn’t that last month?”

More like April Fool’s Day, which should especially be a relief to Patriots and Steelers fans. Man, those unis are ugly.

UPDATE: The NFL also confirmed the pictures were fakes.
