The Green Bay Packers wear some of the most iconic uniforms in all of sports. They're simple, clean, a palette of football nostalgia that harkens back to the days where you could drink scotch at work, smoke on airplanes and mustaches were a defining feature of one's manliness. If you like these uniforms, you should probably take a picture or buy one of your own. Because in the not too distant future, the Green and Gold is likely going to be the Green and Gold - sponsored by Proctor and Eisenberg, attorneys at law. Yes, ads are almost certainly coming to NFL jerseys. They've already made their way to practice jerseys but to be fair, Nitschke field has already played Blurred Lines during breaks over the loudspeaker, so any integrity the practice field had before has long since been compromised. Now, Roger Goodell has gone on record as saying the NFL isn't interested in doing such a thing. But that comes from the same guy who said the NFL is interested in player safety after repeated attempts at implementing an 18-game schedule (which is also probably happening). So take that for whatever it's worth. But regardless of whatever the Commish says, the biggest sign yet that ads are coming to NFL jerseys is the fact that they're about to come to the NBA. Commissioner Adam Silver has already said that ads on jerseys are, "inevitable" and the first domino may have just fell with the revealing of Charlotte's new jerseys.
