Nike’s new uniforms did little to help the cause of perspiring offensive linemen in Week 1 of the NFL season. Above is a screenshot of Lions tackle Jeff Backus, who sweat through his pants so hard you could see his legs, cheeks, and jockstrap. I think we can officially consider that a wardrobe malfunction. And I think Nike might need to change the kind of material they’re using for their pants.

  • Whooo Hooo!!
  • They are disgusting!!
  • About time for some parity in the "revealing uniform" category - finally, let the women have something to look at too!
  • I'd rather look at a nice female behind and thigh than a sweaty male lard ass!
  • That "lard" you see can pick you up and toss you over the goal post!
  • The screen name "badrott" says it all. I picture some little Danny DiVito looking hairy dude with a beer gut and short stubby cigar.
  • I just commented to my husband last night that they looked like giant diapers!!!
  • Sweet !
  • it gives the langerie football league, some comparison
  • Are you kidding? Too revealing?! Have you seen any of the cheerleaders outfits?! What we now need is women camera people so that there are MORE closeup shots of the players
  • Hey DotcomDenver guy!! THANK YOU!!
  • There is always some Male or Female who is going to make a mountain out of a molehole. What a pity you people are; can't you think about something original to say instead of Blah, Blah,
    Blah!!
  • Ok, no blah, blah, blah. How about only wearing these for San Fransisco home games then?
  • I like that new uniform WOO HOO!
  • Seriously not a problem. I've seen more on network TV.
  • i know a couple of people that like that ass
  • Too revealing? Oh, come now!!!!! If the NFL is trying to attract more female fans, this oughta' do it!!!! BTW - is Tebow wearing Nike this year :-)
  • Ummm....good point - need to check that out next week!!
  • Jeez. Why is it so important for everyone to know and see everything? Also, everything that is designed, made and marketed by Nike is total crap. They don't stop with shoes or clothes but also pollute the visual environment on playing fields as well.
  • Niiiiiiiice, now please turn around.
  • Nice !!!!
  • who cares and get over it...enjoy your team and the game and who cares it they sweat....wrestling is much more revealing and no one goes nuts about it!
  • GOD ... I hope they fix this before the Thanksgiving Day Game ... what a way to ruin a Turkey Dinner
  • I was so glad to see this article because I noticed this and not just during this game. I made a comment about it and was called a "perv" and to stop looking...lol. It was kind of hard to miss though!!!
  • Kind of like a Walmart picture. ;=)))
  • Thought those uniforms were only for 49ers home games?
  • well i feel like its dicrimination so it would only be fare to make the women uniforms out of the same material basketball,tennis etc. now wouldnt that be a beautiful site to see an it would definately create more revenue an more fans.
  • OMG

    you gotta be kidding
    i find it, as a guy.......gross

    if i was a chick.....maybe
    or a gay guy would like it

    but in any case......

    EWWWWWWWWWWWWW
