Orange mania has swept across Broncos Country and the cries for the team to switch back to the Orange jerseys for good are being heard by the Denver Broncos.
The Denver Post’s Woody Paige noted in his column in December that the team is going to make the switch, writing:
The Broncos are planning to bring back the orange jerseys full time in 2012. (The league has to be notified of a uniform change by March, so it’s too late for 2011).
Many fans have now assumed that it is a done deal. That, however, is not necessarily the case.
“We are aware of the public support for the Broncos to re-adopt orange as a primary color,” said Broncos Executive Director of Media Relations Patrick Smyth in an email to BT. “Orange is a big part of this team’s history. However, at this time, we are still in the exploratory stages with regard to officially making a change.”
There is no guarantee that the team will be making the switch in 2012, so it is important that as many fans as possible join the Orange Movement. The folks at BringBackBroncosOrange.com are going to send a hard copy of the petition to the Broncos once they reach 10,000 signatures and as of January 19th, have 9,285. Broncos owner Pat Bowlen listens when the fans speak, this is your chance to be heard!
