The Packers and the Eagles both told Nike to take a hike.
Old school.

Yeah ... agreed Dob ... OLD SCHOOL and TRADITION.
Shoot, I wasn't all that crazy when they reduced the number of stripes on the SLEEVES! LMAO
IMHO, screw all this 'new-age' crap! It's nothing more than a way to make people want to buy the newest and 'HIP' items so they can make more money. Has nothing to do with playing better football.

Think it was back in mid 1960s (?) that they changed the unis to have five (5) stripes on each sleeve.
They evolved to a slight degree until the mid 1970's when they added a 'separating strip' between the five.
In 1984 they had the "G" logo actually IN the stripes on the sleeve.
But in 2000 ... they kind of went 'retro' and shrunk the size of the stripes on the sleeves.

I found a link ....
