The present day corporate NFL marketing strategies are nauseating to me. In all forms.

Can we just enjoy football?

I want black, gold, and road white along with the players names and numbers and the Steelers logo on the uniform. Authentic throwbacks are ok (love the bumblebee). I don't want pink or any non Steelers color mixed in. Ever.

But this isn't an NFL marketing strategy... this is genuine, from a player to his teammates, which is why I thought it worth praising.

I understand. But if the NFL goes along with it...

I know this is very unpopular among many, but I don't want an Army decal or anything not part of the Steelers uniform on the Steelers uniform. I refer to my post. The uniform includes the helmet.

I'm a bitter man :D

Best thing would be if the NFL said we will fine you if you wear that patch. Then the Steelers to a man did it anyway and paid the fine. Where does the disrespecting veteran angle go from there? Away.

Right now I'm just enjoying the fact that Big Al came up with something so f-ing cool and I am sure that someone in the league office is beside themselves because they didn't think of it first.

Noticed that the Colts are wearing the logos of the different military branches on their helmets as well.

Guessing the NFL told all the teams they’d allow stickers on helmets this week.

Kind of disappointing. Was really hoping to see the fallout of an NFL fine.

So I take it that also extends to the DMR patch on the right shoulder?

During Salute to Service month, each player wears a sticker representing the branch of his choice. It's league-wide.
