I've been proven right... for once.

Last year during my look at NFC uniforms I said this:

Last year the Lions updated yet another classic NFL look. It went well, but with a giant red (or rather, black) flag. The Lions kept their beautiful light blue and silver color scheme, and distinctive leaping lion logo, but they added black. It isn’t much, just black stripes on the sleeve and outline of the numbers, but its enough to raise the hackles on my neck. Not this year, maybe not next, but sometime in the next 3-4 years you’ll see an alternate black jersey, available at the NFL shop for the low, low price of $159.99.

Well, just this week the Lions announced they would wear this awful black uniform, and you can buy it online. I was wrong on the price though, $75.00 for the replica and $250.00 for the authentic.
