    Default 2011-12 New Pacers Uniform Campaign: Page + Petition and more

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-F...60897087306147

    That is the link for the page.

    Ok here's the plan folks. The idea is that we'll start a big enough movement, that we could influence the Pacers to get a new uniform design hopefully Flo Jo inspired. Those are universally loved by Pacers fans and we'd all love to see them back on the court again.

    Especially because this is a beginning of a new era in Pacers basketball, it'd be nice to start the 2011-12 season with new uni's.

    We need all suggestions on what we can do to get the Pacers attention.

    I need someone to run this page, I'm not an expert at influencing people, so if someone wants to take over that job I'll make you an admin.

    Sleeze, if you'd like to make a few more photoshops of players in both the home, away and alternate that would be great too.

    I don't know how to go about doing this, so those who know help me out so we can do this!

    Remember to do the following:

    Like the page on Facebook

    Share it on facebook

    Post the link on Twitter.

    Let's get Retweets from Paul George and any other active Pacer's tweeter (doesn't hurt to try Colts player's either as many of them wouldn't mind)


    Listen once we've got a FB page with 2000 or so likes, we'll then email Pacer's brass illustrating the desire Pacer's fans have for the uniforms... so make this happen.

    Also we'll post any other uniform designs on there as well, so if you have a good idea give me a good link and I'll post it.

    Isn't there a minimum timeframe the NBA has to be informed of an intent to change to jerseys logos etc?

    There is, but I'm not sure what that amount of time is. Even if a player wants to change numbers I think it has to be approved by the league for the purpose of having time to get the new jerseys on shelves. I seem to remember when Lebron commented on wanting to wear #6 a couple years ago, that there was some problem with it happening right away.

    Well, with possibly-impending lockout, it would be best to get this started and out as quickly as possible. The playoffs are still going, and if some kind of approval can be achieved, there could be a little extra time to get everything finished and made before the lockout is over.

    I'm all in on these jerseys. I love Sleeze's concept, and rel's especially, and I think including other uniforms on the page would give options for fans to vote on or something. If this happens and the Pacers adopt one of the uni styles, I'm 100% buying a brand-new George jersey. And it'll be awesome.

    Teams have to wear a jersey for at least 5 years, I think, which we've done, and after getting new jerseys, an alternate takes 3 years to be able to be worn, I think?

    Regardless, I'm ready for a change.

    You might want to take it easy on the "universally loved" thing. Not everyone is a fan of the flo jos.

    We had 8 years of pinstripes, and now we've had 6 years with these jerseys. I wonder what nickname they'll get after they're retired?

    Anyway, we're getting close to being due for something new.

    Ted Leonsis said at the Wizard's unveiling of new uniforms the other day that it normally takes a minimum of 2 years lead time for a team to change jerseys. He did say that they got permission of only 1 year notice for the Wiz though.

    On a side note, I do think it's time for new uni's. I believe the current ones were partially designed by Jermaine O'Neal. At least I remember reading something about that when they first came out. No wonder they suck.

    They are too generic to have a nickname in my opinion.

    Yeah, I've got to be honest about this. I hated the FloJo's.

    I've been a big advocate of getting new jerseys for 6 years now.


    I love rel and sleeze's designs and definitely think we should go the FloJo route. They may not be universally loved, but they're globally loved.

    Man, I guess I am in the minority here. I really like our current jerseys.

    I don't think people so much dislike the jerseys as much as they just think they are bland and uninteresting.
