Green Bay uniforms

So I'm a football nerd, and proud of it. But I wanted to share this.

A few weeks ago I was looking at something online about former Green Bay Packer uniforms (I'd tell you why, but I don't want to admit it) on www.packersuniforms.com. Come to find out, around 1994 Ron Wolf (then the General Manager of the Packers) had proposed new uniforms, something along the lines of the glittery gold that the St. Louis Rams use with their unis. He didn't like the "Michigan Maize" that Green Bay used. He said the bylaws stated Green & Gold, not Green & Maize. So, he had proposed the new uniforms, the board of directors had accepted the proposal, and everything was set to go, but then he had a realization: Green Bay needed a better team, not better uniforms. The proposal was set on the back burner, he got Reggie White, and rest is history.

Want to know what those uniforms would have looked like? Scroll down. They would have looked just like this, except with a G. Same colors, just without the striping:
