    ...or maybe when the people who DON'T watch but have to pay anyway decide to stop paying.

    I was very disheartened (many years ago) when my son was playing little league baseball and we had to buy expensive uniforms. It was a financial hardship for some and as a result many kids don't get to play organized sports. But the good news a portion of every dollar spent on these uniforms went to the pro team to support there steroid habits. No pro baseball football basketball team will ever get any of my money willingly. As far as I'm concerned the only value to society for the NBA, NFL, MLB is to prevent with prison overcrowding.

    I don't know about convict wear or sanitation worker garb, but with those baggy full length trousers, they look sloppy and unprofessional.

    I also agree! It's absolutely disgusting...disgraceful...shameful....and contemptable! It doesn't matter how they play the game, but they MUST look like ball players. Have you ever! I think we should boycott baseball till they improve the uniforms!

    I agree. Uniforms should not change in sports.

    I say we go back to leather helmets without facemasks in football.

    If you like baseball, watch it. If you don't like baseball, don't watch it.

    I like baseball. I really could give a sh@t how long the pants are. Some guys wear short pants with long sockes. So what? When I played organized baseball, not too many years ago, players wore whatever pant length they wanted, as long as everyone had the same jersey and pant color.

    As far as clean shaven? One of my favorite teams as a kid was the Oakland A's of the 70's because they had beards and mustaches. They "broke the mold."

    timb99, yeah I also remember the "A's" of the early 70's. I showed up at practice one day with a pair of white cleats "a la the Oakland A's". I was told to never wear those again.
