Monday's announcement of the Bucs' new Nike jersey likely will stoke more vigorous responses.
The move appears to meld the pre-1997 creamsicle jerseys with the red and white uniforms of the last 16 seasons. Pewter takes a prominent role in the style and the "Buccaneer Red" is a more vibrant shade of crimson than the previous iteration.
Undoubtedly, the changes will bring about some backlash with fans, especially middle-aged ones who despise change. But, to steal a line from Eminem: "This is for the kids' amusement -- the kids."
