Jeffrey Lurie: reinstate "kelly green" as the official color of the Philadelphia Eagles.

      Andrew B.

The fans demand it.

We are not asking for throwback uniforms; a modern uniform design is appropriate, but Kelly Green should be the official color.

It's more representative of our legacy, and the franchise is going through major changes that should be reflected by a change in our image as well.

 

To:
Jeffrey Lurie, Chairman/CEO, The Philadelphia Eagles
Reinstate "kelly green" as the official color of the Philadelphia Eagles.

I am expressing a commitment to purchase an NFL Licensed official/replica/youth jersey within 12 months of new Kelly Green uniforms being released.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    1. Did your support get the ball rolling? Kelly green switch back in the news!

      Over eighteen months ago, this petition got enough traction to warrant coverage around the Philadelphia sports community. At that time, much was said about the lengthy process involved in having a uniform change take place.

      Perhaps all of your signatures did more than just garner coverage at that time. Maybe, your signatures were heard among Eagles leadership and helped justify finally beginning the process of implementing a change.

      Either way, supporters of this petition should be happy to hear that a possible switch is once again back in the news!

      An article on phillymag.com gave us one bit of awesome news as well as some information for those expecting that this petition would lead to immediate changes.

      Uniform changes cannot occur overnight. It's going to be a long (years) process with many parties interested in its result. This petition is asking for that process to begin today, not that it be completed tomorrow.

      And the great news mentioned in the article? The Eagles are apparently aware of the petition! Keep the signatures coming!

      Here is a link to the full article here where you can read more about the uniform change process:

      The Eagles are the NFL's 6th oldest team and yet our dated blue-green uniforms and logo make us look like an expansion team. Yesterday's game demonstrated that when I sat near jacksonville fans and couldn't tell the difference between eagles and Jaguars hats from the back without seeing the logo on front. Abandon the mindnight green and black PLEASE!!

      Me and my dad have always loved Kelly Green for the eagles, now hes dying and I'd love nothing more than to be able to tell him the Eagles are switching back to the old colors before he passes, I hope we can get the old colors back.
