    If I remember right you have to have your uniform for two years (it's either two or three) before you can unveil an alternate uniform. I wish I could find a link to the rule, but I remember reading about it when the Pacers got their new U's.

    I'm not sure what the rule is. We had the yellow uniforms for the pinstripes 1 year after we got them, but the rule may have changed. Mark Boyle explained it when they were unveiling the new uniforms last year, but I forget what he said.

    All,

    There is a two year moratorium on alternate uniforms when teams change uniform design. In other words, the Pacers could use an alternate uniform starting next season.

    There is no such restriction on retro uniforms. In fact, the Pacers will use a retro uniform this season in conjunction with their 40th anniversary season.

    I'd get a kick out of using the mid-90's jerseys on a retro night. Are those what we'll be using, or since it's the anniversary year, I'm guessing another ABA uniform (there was more than one, wasn't there?).

    I know this is off topic but does anyone hate how often teams wear retro uniforms? And sometimes I notice away teams wearing white and that bugs me because it use to be all home teams wear white and away teams wear whatever color. I don't know but those things bug me.

    I don't mind retros in moderation. I'm not a fan (at all) of the road team wearing the home jersies.

    I'm with Rommie.

    Retro's should be worn maybe 3-4 times a year. Thanksgiving and Xmas games, if you've got one. Then maybe in national TV games. And for the playoffs only the default home whites and dark roads. And if your team isn't old enough to have retro jerseys, don't make some up. This means you Miami.

    I hope the Pacers wear those royal blues with the yellow stripe with "Pacers" in it from the late 80s I think as their retros this year.

    What's the purpose of not allowing alternate jerseys? What's the big deal? I mean, why do teams have to wait two years after introducing new jerseys to unveil atlernates?

    I do like the retros - but not too often. If we used the 90s jerseys, that would rock - I loved those jerseys.

    Thanks for the clarification Mr.Boyle.

    After reading a few blogs this morning, I couldnt help but think all we need now is for Larry [Bird] to start posint, and maybe even RC. Maybe we can even get lucky and bribe Mark Cuban to start checking the site out. Well just have to be sure to ban his account from any trade speculation

    Florence Joyner designed them, hence the name Flo Jo's

    Yeah... the Flo-Jo's still look good. Never should've abandoned those. And certainly not for pinstripes.



    There are a couple of ABA versions I'd rather have for retro than the Flo Jo's. Or even the uniforms worn in circa 1978 (I'd like to get a Billy Knight jersey.)
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I kinda liked the pinstripes...Definitely liked them better than the current version, although I like the current road jersey better than the home.

    I believe Conrad answered this question about a year or two ago on the QOTD...if I remember correctly the NBA sets a certain # of games that they have to be worn in (something like 6 or 7) and then the team can decide towards the beginning of the season when to wear them...I remember that Air Harrington and JO both hated the yellow alternates because they were both injured while wearing them and considered them bad luck...
