The star on the side of the helmet will not change.
But Richie Whitt of the Dallas Observer has turned up an interesting development. The Dallas Cowboys are considering a uniform switch this season. That’s because HD television, like the massive one the Cowboys have hanging from the top of their stadium, make their pants look green in certain lights.
Per the report, Bill Priakos, the team’s vice president of marketing, indicates a subtle change in the pants the team wears could be on the way. That is because Tex Schramm designed the pants to appear blueish silver on TV. They did just that until HD televisions came around and, well, reality sunk in. The pants, indeed, are greenish in a certain light.,
“When fans go to our home games in person the No. 1 grief we hear about is the green pants," Priakos told Whitt. “Now we're hearing it from fans watching on TV because of HD. It's too realistic.
“Nothing's set in stone. But we want the pants to look silver, to be consistent to every fan no matter if they're at the game or watching on TV, whether we're home or on the road. Of course, we'll never change the home white jerseys or the helmets, but we're experimenting with some different shades in the pants.”
