Bengals Director of Communications Emily Parker recently came on our show to talk about fan engagement, free agency plans, and, of course, the new uniforms.
When I mentioned the images found on eBay and asked for confirmation, she replied:
“All I can say is, I know there’s a lot of excitement around the new uniforms and that it’s been fun to see all the various mockups that are out there. And, whether or not there’s, the uniforms, whether or not they’re out there, I don’t know.”
She did give us a hint about how far away the official reveal is though:
“But what I am excited about is, when we get closer to releasing the uniforms, we’ve got a lot of really fun content tied to it, and I’m really looking forward to, in a couple of weeks, when we do the player photo shoots for it and really just seeing players in our new uniforms for the first time. And I think there’s going to be a big rollout and a lot of excitement when they are officially released and everyone gets to see what the real uniforms look like.”
So, two weeks, people. We can do it. Of course, I’m going to go ahead and read into her phrasing and intonation and say that those eBay jerseys were basically the unofficial release. Just my takeaway.
