RE: White helmets
I like the white, but the publicity is the real value of these helmets. The original espn tweet is approaching 1000 retweets and 2500 likes. This sort of thing generates free, mostly positive attention.

RE: White helmets
The white is... bearable. The green is awful.

You know what? If we're on the field, I'm not going to let that bother me.

RE: White helmets
None of those helmets will be used. I think we have four helmet designs we will be using.

According to Jacob Clark the green ones are "for show. Just something to have in the office."

Thank goodness.

‪Primary helmets are gold or white, with multiple face mask color options. ‪ the green alternate is always an option

RE: White helmets
One of those greens looks like the color of some of the helmets in the Hilyer years. And yes they were butt ugly too

I thought I remembered an odd helmet from the Hilyer years. Maybe we can break out the green helmets to honor him. Anybody know of any plans to honor Bryant this year.

I'm sorry, but this is sh*t. Having two shades of the same color on top of each other is bad enough, but having 3 shades of the same color is sh*t. I could live with the other two as an alternate, but I think putting this helmet on would give the wearer a head injury just from osmosis.

Replace the gray with green outline...

Put this on the white helmet...

I happen to like the green helmet that has the dark gold facemask & dark gold dragon logo.

RE: White helmets
Even if we don't wear helmets like these, it's good publicity. It will get people to talk about us. The fans prefer a traditional look like below. While the players will prefer something new and shiny. All probably look good in a certain way.
