NFL “Penalizes” Colorblind Football Fans

Last Thursday night sparked an unexpected controversy for colorblind fans of the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets football teams as they were unable to distinguish between the all-red and all-green team uniforms.

The Color Rush campaign is an initiative by the NFL (and designed by Nike) that “combines current and historic uniform colors and designs into one new uniform, honoring the franchise and energizing the fan base.” The NFL is piloting this new idea for four games this season and plans on unveiling the full line up for all teams in 2016.
