Stefon Diggs wants the Vikings to wear all purple more often

Vikings fans have been divided on this for some time

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

We all know that, for the better part of their existence, the Minnesota Vikings have had some of the best uniforms in the National Football League. Even an “ugly” Vikings uniform looks better than most of the uniforms that the league currently has. At least, they do in my opinion, which is completely unbiased.

On Twitter earlier this week, wide receiver Stefon Diggs suggested that he wanted to see the Vikings go to a uniform combination that has been a bit of a dividing point for Vikings fans over the past few years.

Diggs wants to see more of the purple-on-purple look for the Vikings in 2018. Off the top of my head, I can’t remember the last time the Vikings went with the purple pants and the purple jerseys. It may have been their “Color Rush” game against the Dallas Cowboys back in 2016, and I’m sure that if I dug back through some of the pictures I might find one more recent. That’s the last one I remember, though.

There are many Vikings fans that, from what I’ve seen, don’t really care for the all-purple look, going so far as to call them the “Barney” uniforms after the (in)famous purple dinosaur. Personally, I sort of like it. After all, there are only two teams in the league that feature purple as one of their primary colors, the Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens, and it’s much more readily identified with the Vikings than it is with the Ravens. I wouldn’t mind it being featured a little more often.

What do you think? Should the Vikings go purple-on-purple a few times this year?


Do you agree with Stefon Diggs’ assertion that the Vikings need to feature the purple-on-purple uniforms more often?
