Maybe we would all feel differently if the franchise was heading in a different direction i.e. not down the tubes.

I haven't worn Wizards gear in public in about a year. I've held off from buying a new jersey for even longer.

I liked those throwback orange and navy blue uniforms, although I think I may be the only adult human who likes orange. :)

This:

I HATED those blue and brown atrocities they wore the past few years. Those road unis were bad. That blue always looked to me like they got whatever mix of leftover dye the manufacturer had left. Not dark, not light, not medium...just dull.

I've never been a fan of the red and white with horizontal stripes, either. I'd be fine with a classic look with navy, gold and white as the colors.

So yeah, I think the team needs: new management, new coaches, new players, new name, new uniforms.

Yes. I was annoyed that in the process of Ted's rush to "Caps-ify" the Wizards, he adopted that same navy blue, as opposed to the royal blue of the team's heyday.

I liked the orange too, but they look terrible on white guys.

Well we only have one white guy on the team and it won't be for long.

Well that's easy. Just don't sign any white guys.

Actually, Ernie's the perfect GM for that kind of approach.

Really? Ernie "Vesely" "Santorasky" Grunfeld?

Those blue & gold unis were atrocious. I don't get the nostalgia over them.

I loved the new unis when they were first released, but it has kind of waned. They aren't terrible though.

I don't think the reds have held up after just a year, but I still do like the whites. Wouldn't mind a redesign on just the reds, whether they switch to a blue scheme or not.

See, I'm thinking Ernie is perfect because he pre-decides what TYPE of player the team needs or doesn't need and then goes shopping for that type. Convince him the Wizards don't need any more white players, and he won't get them. Simple.

Maybe blue with Fire Flames around the border.

But maybe thats asking for too much...

I like the red white and blue(although that stripe in the middle is annoying and makes it hard to read names and numbers), but my personal favorite are the Orange Bullets ones. I have a Jamison one of that color and style, autographed and framed hanging on my wall.

Some sporty flames would surely make the team faster. It would fit right in with their plan of building a team around the ability to run and jump.
