    I was at the Johnson county fair a week or so ago, and they had one of their minions there trying to get people to buy subscriptions. He was telling me all about the coupons I could get on Sundays! Oohhhhh! Like I don't already get envelopes, folders, and brochures of coupons crammed into my mailbox every single day. He asked me where I got all my news from. Obviously, the internet like 95% of the population does now. I turned him down and moved on with my day. In the back of my mind I was thinking about how they constantly dredge up bad memories of Pacers players from half a decade ago. Now I'm REALLY glad I didn't subscribe. Not that I would have anyway....

    I don't remember really liking the pinstripe jerseys, but they are the ones I grew up with, and any additional jersey would be nice. I kind of wish they'd kept the retro jerseys from last year, or even gone with the Flo-Jos, but I'm not really picky. I actually moreso wish that they would adapt Ben Phillippe's "New Look Campaign":



    But oh well. It'll be cool to see George and Green in them.
    I like it, except for the Logo, I'm sorry but the ABA logo just plain sucked. Although I like the flojo's that someone on this board came up with better.

    Y'know, TPTB have to know that a lot of fans want to see the Flo-Jos back as an alternate, which is why it's so weird that they keep ignoring them.
    Yeah...no kidding.....I'd buy a Flo-Jo Hibbert Jersey if they ever came out with one.

    Stupid IndyStar......the article goes into detail about what happened....and then adds this at the very end:

    Cloud 9 also gained notoriety in December 2007 as the site of a confrontation involving former Indiana Pacer Jamaal Tinsley.
    Geez.....Cloud 9 might as well put a plaque at the very spot where the incident to honor the occurrence since that is the only thing that this club will be known for.

    Agreed, but it will be kind of nice to see them again all the same. Still, it's weird how they keep seeming to avoid the flojo jerseys. I wonder why?
    I wonder if there is some licensing issue with them?

    If there was a licensing issue I doubt they could still be selling the Flo-Jos.

    Doubtful, usually the person signs over all rights to their work in that situation.

    I really don't get he love for the Flo-Jos. I find them unbalanced stylistically, the break on the side where the two, triangles for loss of a better word, just seems strange. Is it more nostalgia for this being when we stopped being an irrelevant NBA team or do you all think they really look good?

    After looking at the pin stripes again, i would like to see that look without the stripes. Just solid, blue or white would be nice with the gold trim.

    Do you know what we need to do? Create a PinStripes Vs. FloJos Poll and send the results to RobFromPacers.

    The break of continuity on the side panels has definitely been my biggest gripe with the Flo Jos. But I still really like them, if for no other reason than they're really simple but entirely unique. The two things I want most in a uniform are obviously just don't be ugly, and to be immediately recognizable. If you're flipping channels and see a glimpse of the Flo Jos and follow the NBA at all you immediately know it's the Pacers, no having to take time to recognize players, don't have to glace at the scoreboard. That's part of how you build a "brand," something I think the franchise has always lacked.

    Exactly. The Pacers don't have a "brand" at all. The pinstripes were widely recognized as some of the nicest jerseys during their time, but when we moved away from them, I think we were all ready for a new era in Pacers basketball. But they went to the most boring uniforms they could possibly come up with.

    Doing the pinstripes as the throwback is going to be weird, in my opinion. It's the last jersey we actually wore before this one. We REALLY need to find out why TPTB won't do Flo-Jos. Simple and recognizable, and completely unique. Not to mention, they'd fit in better with what the other teams are doing as far as time period. At least in my memory they would.

    I LOVE the Raptors, Rockets, Kings, Cavs, and Sixers throwbacks. I guess it's just nostalgia to me.

    Seriously though, someone needs to find out why the Pacers won't do the Flo Jos.

    It sure would be nice if they brought the FloJoa back as an alternate. Either that or they should sell any eras jersey for ant current player. Ya it might be asking a lot but you know theyd make $$ off it. I sure would love a PG flojo jersey. Thatd be perfect. Never been a huge fan of the pin stripes but anything to give me a break on the current jerseys is good in my book.

    Man I hate the pinstripes.

    In fact I pretty much hate all of our jerseys other than the flo jo's & the retros from last season.

    I want something new and frankly I want something with some flavor.
    I like these ones.

    I know they are from a losing era, but they're clean, simple and timeless. Change the logo type, and I'd really like it.

    Not a big fan of the Flo Jos myself, but as Joe said, looks like it will be pin stripes.

    I like the Rockets and Jazz uniforms. As far as the others.......All I can say is "Did someone actually get PAID to come up with those? Really?".

    Pin stripes=the brawl maybe, but they also equal our only NBA finals appearance, I don't know how people forget that.

    What are the uniforms the Pacers wear now going to be called when they change jersey designs? The blank uniforms?
