Just read this evening that Dan Rooney II said that the Steelers will be wearing new throwback uni's in 2012 to celebrate the teams 80th season in the NFL!

The throwbacks that the team was wearing these last few years were nice but I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with.

Hey I love the current throwbacks but saw this coming. Pretty sure reebok has the rights to them so nike can't make em

Hell, why don't we have "throwback coaches" next year? Screw the uni's.

So does this mean our defenders can actually hit w/out flags and fines during these throwback games???

I have no issue with our current throwbacks but I would LOVE the block numerals and an occasional appearance by the white pants too!

:clap:
It's hard to watch Ben come off the field with a broken and bleeding nose with no flag thrown and no fines while Harrison gets fined for farting on a reciever.:cursin:

throwback unis are terribad. i wouldnt even say 98%, ive never seen a throwback i liked. they never do the 70's ones, its always something that was too embarassing to wear for more than one or two games.

But I sure hope they don't use those ugly "Batman" uniforms. I don't care if they filmed that movie in Heinz Field or not, these old ones are FUGLY!

If the league is going to continue using throwbacks a couple of times a year then I want to see both teams wearing them. It looks stupid IMO to have one team in a throwback and another in the current uni.

I've always thought that too. I think the home team should have the chance to force the visiting team to wear whatever throwback uniforms they have. It would really help tie together the old school look.

1934 looks like jail uniforms SMH, 1933 is just plain ugly,with that being said 1934,1933,1945 should NEVER EVER be brought back, i like the rest of em though.

Bring back the 1974 to 1979 jersey at least it was worn to win superbowls . the helmets with grey facemasks that would be pretty cool . at least it would bring back sweet memories to many of us .

My second choice would be 1933 . I find them pretty cool actually , they look like money , foreign money , but money .

I read it's just speculation that they will go with the 67 unis. Hope we find out soon enough. 63 uni doesn't look bad.

I like the '63 version as well.

Gray face masks---good one!! They always complement the neck roll nicely.

Throwbacks aren't supposed to be visually appealing :lol: It's the nostalgia part of it that the NFL loves. I honestly can't think of any throwbacks that are really good looking. :lol: Even the ones the Steelers have been using are blah; it's fun to see them wear them but it will be nice to see something different.

Ed Bouchette tweeted today that Art Rooney II said the Steelers uniforms will not change with Nike taking over for 2012. They will of course have new throwback digs though, but nobody has seen them to date that I have know of.

I have a feeling these new throwbacks are going to be even more old school than the most recent uni's were. If I know the Steelers they'll go back as far in team history as they can to find something that nobody has seen in a long time, and something that many fans have never seen.

Love the Batman uni's! Huge bold numbers that make a statement, the colored shoulders w/numbers which can be seen from the side. Very utilitarian, no-nonsense, simple, unique, and bold. Perfect for the team that most closely represents a no-holds-barred, smash mouth Gotham City style team than any other in the league.

Bring on the new throwbacks!

I would like to see them go back to the old style numbers. I just never got into this rounded style that they've been using since the last switch came around.
