This whole thing with wearing white is going to benefit us over darker jerseys, needs to stop. The NFL uniform has changed and road teams are not feeling the heat anymore. http://techland.time.com/2012/04/05/performance-technology-the-driver-behind-new-nfl-uniforms/The Elite 51 NFL uniform actually starts with Nike’s Pro Combat base layer, a system that comes in three forms, 5 percent drier, 8 percent lighter and 22 percent cooler than the NFL previously used. Athletes can choose a warm-weather choice (Hypercool) that wicks sweat away from the body for rapid evaporation.
The heat has never given us an advantage. If anything, other teams come here and ball out in it.Of course, if your guys aren't getting hydrated and don't have shade, and their side does..well, home field advantage just isn't an advantage.IF they REALLY wanted a home field advantage, they would have a state of the art dome/tent for the players to sit in, instead of the traditional bench-sitting in the hot sun method. Hell, more than half of the team is from up north originally. So, really, saying "home field advantage" is well beyond bs.Clothes don't mean a damn thing.
