    Has anyone ever seen them wear black before? I don't watch a lot of Cards football, but, I can't remember ever seeing them wear black.

    I know, a WOMAN question, but, just curious and thought I would ask!idonno:

    Same thing for the Mets. They just adopted the color to see more gear.

    Don't recall it. Maybe they're using the Texans' method of jersey marketing.

    There was a study done in the late 80's that showed that teams that wear all black or mostly black jerseys are viewed on a psychological level as being more aggresive, more tough, etc. They are also called for more penalties.

    Heres a link to an easy to read explanation:

    Maybe the Cards were trying to "get tougher"

    I thought they've worn them before but I must be confused with Philadelphia for some reason.

    Anyway I thought they looked pretty slick.

    That link leads to a blog that only cites one source. That one source, of course, is a dead link.

    I hate to complain, because I am glad that you brought it up. That is a very fascinating subject. I'm just disappointed that I can't confirm it.

    Thanks guys! It was strange seeing them in black. Didnt know it was the Cards until I saw the red Cardinal on the helmet. Truthfully, I didn't like it, very boring.

    I'm colorblind, so I thought they were red at first.
