The Washington Redskins Refused To Wear Their Color Rush Jerseys On Thursday Night
The Washington Redskins apparently hate their Mustard Yellow color rush jerseys so much that they refused to wear during tonight’s Thursday Night Football game. According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Redskins president Bruce Allen has been pushing back against the NFL’s color rush jerseys for the past year.
Team president Bruce Allen has long been against the Color Rush jerseys, even going so far as to propose banning them at a league meeting earlier this year (the other owners weren’t on board). His reason? The uniforms are “garish.”
So far the Redskins have avoided wearing their alternate uniforms, which are a yellow color. Last year they played the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, which isn’t a Color Rush game. The year before, Color Rush was restricted to NFL Network Thursday games – the Redskins were on CBS.
The team eventually chose to wear the all burgundy jerseys on Thursday night instead of the mustard yellow.
