Oh. Maybe they just don’t want to admit that they suck in any uniform.

This goes back to the 70's I believe. Dallas always felt the white uniforms were lucky or some shit, which is why they were one of the few teams that regularly wore white at home (your Dolphins being the other) and their division opponents (Redskins in particular) would opt for white at home against Dallas to force them to wear their blue.

Yeah I knew the phins did it. Honestly I grew up with most of my focus in hockey and during the off-season baseball. And as you might remember, hockey pre-lockout was home whites. And baseball (which has a zillion rules to attire), is somewhat of a home whites/road grays rule (though that tradition is violated more and more).

So I grew up under the understanding that white was the home color in all sports, especially given that both Miami teams also frequently wore white at home. Though nowadays the phins really mix it up.

But honestly, colors at home makes a lot more sense.

I think it also had something to do (in Dallas' case) with the perception that you look bigger in white.
For the 'phins I think it was also temperature related, white being a bit cooler than aqua in the hot Orange Bowl sun. You see a few teams wearing white at home early in the season now (Carolina and Tennessee come to mind) and going with color later in the year.

That’s so weird - so many factors and so many rules in the other 3 sports. I’d never even thought about the temperature.

With hockey, until recent times, it was always strict.

Gronk looks incredibly slow and almost like all of his former muscle is now fat.

It’s weird.

He’s been slowed by an ankle injury.

As the recipient of a blown ankle on a traditional roll that broke it and subsequently an inward roll followed by a full pressure cleat stomp, his ankle is paper and he won’t get that speed back.

Might as well convert him to a guard rn.

My Mahomes/Hill combo that I’ve been rocking on my fantasy squad has paid off.

I know that, but I was just baffled as to why the Giants chose to wear white, which they never do at home. I was just curious to see if there was some sort of special reason.

Probably what I was alluding to earlier with the dolphins. It’s not exclusive to the dolphins — it’s been promoted a lot to change up the jersey every so often for every team. Lots of teams do it.
