Seattle Seahawks jersey's a hoax, or is it?

Published on April 5, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

hawks-green-jersey-hoaxThe graphic of a neon-green Seahawks jersey posted on a Web site turned out to be a well-executed April Fool’s Day hoax.

The possibility of the team having green alternate jerseys, however, may not end up being entirely a joke.

The Seahawks have announced no plans to use a different jersey at any point in the upcoming season, a spokesman confirmed. However, NFL teams have the option of using a third jersey.

Reebok previously made a “fashion” jersey that included the electric shade of the Seahawks’ rave green and gray. If the team wears an alternate jersey at some point this season — still a possibility — green would be the most likely color.

However, that third, alternate jersey would not be the design that circulated online Thursday, posted on such sites as Deadspin.com and ProFootballTalk.com.

Paul Soto made that graphic using Photoshop, and it was posted as part of a hoax that included the Web site uniwatchblog.com.

“Just an April Fool’s joke — simple as that,” wrote Paul Lukas of onuniwatchblog.com in an e-mail.

The template was initially posted on www.greenglare.com, a site documenting the Hawks’ uniform history. The site is run by Michael Princip.

“I can assure you it’s just a hoax,” Princip e-mailed. “Thankfully, because those green jerseys were awful.”
