I don't like it one bit. It looks like they are trying to get the ref's noteriety. I have ref'ed over 5 years now in wrestling: college, high and middle school and elementary. One of the most respected officials in the country once told me, the best officials are the ones you don't remember having any involvement in the match. Same goes for football....

I think it's just so they can have a throw back jersey to wear when the teams wear thier third jerseys.

New fabric, great. New look, not so much. Thanks Reebok, thanks NFL for dressing the blind men up in clown outfits. As if they weren't already getting any respect.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
