    That's a shame. They should be worn every game.

    Agreed. The blue look way nicer than the white. They actually match with the helmet and pants too.

    Is there a good/official explanation about why the blues are so rare? I'd like to see them at least twice a season.

    The blue uniforms are unlucky. Over the years they lose more than win with them.

    We're at a point in Cowboys history when they could probably tinker with the white jerseys-only tradition if they were so inclined. I doubt the backlash would be too strong when, as far as the younger fans are concerned, no jersey has been particularly lucky.

    If color could cause luck, would you wear the same colored shirt everyday? I hope you are not serious that you believe the blue uniforms are unlucky.

    Jerry seems content to stay traditional except for the "Ed Norton" jerseys on Thanksgiving. But there was a time when we would wear those white double stars pretty often. Heck, they were even like our unofficial playoff jerseys back in the day.

    I don't know what the Joneses are afraid of. I'm a traditionalist but the blue jerseys are part of our tradition. Why not embrace them? Wear them at home against division opponents.

    I may be in the minority but I love the white jerseys. I'm perfectly fine rocking those every game

    It's a scientific fact that the blue ones are unlucky. They look better, but I prefer the white unis, just because they're iconic.

    I agree.

    I like the colour blue the defense used to ware in training camp, but don't like the game day blue at all.

    The curse of the blue jerseys originated when Dallas wore them in Super Bowl V.
    All the quirky plays and bounces of the ball went against us. (still don't know how we lost that game) and then the eagles choose to wear their whites in the NFC championship game of 81 ( I think) again a loss and the legend was born.

    Someone did a list recently on the best uniforms across all major sports. I think the STL Cardinals were #1 (my team btw). The Cowboys were way, way down the list. Maybe 18 or so, behind some ridiculous uniforms like the Golden State Warriors. I thought it was absurd. Then I read the comment under their ranking. Something to the effect of so much potential but just cannot get the nuance right - like the green pants...

    I have to say, I get their point. Its a bit ridiculous that as great as the basic color scheme is (blue & silver) and the absolutely iconic Star, that this org chooses to stay with green pants and struggles mightily to get the blue uni right. It shouldn't be that hard.

    The whites were a Schramm idea. Back in the. Sixties the idea was to see every team's colors and for Dallas to be unique when playing at home. Marketing drove the decision then and it drives it now since it is part of the brand now.

    They should wear the throwback blues and chargers wear their afl jerseys throwback.
