Northwestern's fake blood-stained US flag uniforms are disgusting

    Yeah, they're not going to be wearing those when it's all said and done.

    Agree totally, and go to Charlie Pierce's blog on Esquire and see what Lt. Col. Robert Bateman of the U.S. Army has to say.

    I'm tired of all the fads with the uniforms and helmets. Breast cancer, veterans, save the whales, save the homosexuals, etc. There are plenty of places to do that stuff outside of the sporting arena.

    Saving the homosexuals was particularly enraging.

    What's the deal with the Miami Bobcats' helmets tonight? What were those red streaks in them?

    If that's just some artsy red, it's horrible. If that's really blood-stained, it's beyond horrible.

    And seriously, effing Northwestern? So much for being Ivy League-lite.

    It's not supposed to be a blood-stained look. It's supposed to be a "worn" look on the flag.

    But it's still awful.

    Under Armour's already said yesterday the look is supposed to be a distressed flag, not blood.

    While I don't care for the special uniform fad, they're not disgusting for the reason you suggest.

    Local articles earlier in the week said it was supposed to look like blood stains. (And, they do look like blood stains.)

    The uniforms are hideous, and not respectful. I think there's a pretty good chance they never wear them.
