Daily Talker: Northwestern Uniforms Patriotic or Crass?

Northwestern University is the target of criticism over football uniforms intended to support wounded troops.

Under Armor designed them for the team’s November 16th game, and says the design is meant to depict a flag that has been flown for a long period of time. Ten percent of their sales will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

But some critics call the design crass, because it appears the red stripes appear to be bleeding.

Take a look at the pictures of the uniforms, and let us know what you think: are the uniforms in bad taste?
