Old Sixers unis look great on Brand, BRING THEM BACK !
Posted by Ricky - Sixers4guidos on July 10, 2008
Ok, how about this sequence:
1) Elton Brand signed with the Sixers
2) He posed with the old, classic Sixers uniforms we love (see the pic, thanks to reader Hawk3 for sharing it: you can take a look at his nice Sixers photos here)
3) Sixers4guidos reached its all time peak of traffic
I think the three facts are related even more than it shows. Ok, of course you don’t care about 3), but many of you care about the Bring the old Sixers uniforms back ! petition I started last February. I saw that yesterday that post had hundreds of hits, and many other fans signed up over the last 24 hrs (feel free to continue…).
As I told you back in the past months, I’ve been in contact with the Sixers franchise (marketing and PR dept) about the old uniforms topic, and that they are carefully following what is going on about this “sensitive subject” (I’m using their own words).
Well, what happened yesterday during the press conference of Elton Brand had wasn’t simply a coincidence, I guess. Sixers decide to make Brand wear THE CLASSIC UNIFORMS OF THEIR TRADITION for his first official shooting. The outcome was simply great. New, great player + old uniforms = two dreams come true.
Now can we please complete the job and BRING THEM BACK FULL TIME, dumping the horrible black/gold unis of the past years and, while we are at it, RESTORE THE OLD LOGO WITH THE BASKETBALL, flushing down the current, ugly one ???? Thanks !
Sixersholics (ugly word, I know…) will perhaps remember that at the end of the season Sixers.com published a poll asking fans to vote for their favorite Sixers logo. Guess what, the old logo won…
Good days are coming, let’s hope that Sixers unis of the 1983 can lead us to those results again…
