2 of 8 - AFL Denver Broncos












Personally, I like the other old style of the "D" better. Then of course there is the image of the Buckn' Bronco...













But as "retro" goes, the plain brown helmet is as perfect as it gets. I just can not for the life of me associate yellow with the Broncos...

OK, so lets look at the Broncos’ Home Page…
Right of the top, who do you think the Broncos have chosen to be the face of the franchise?






The Cheerleaders!

Yes, the two very top items are an ad for a charity event...
Race with the cheerleaders!

and

Right below it is the Broncos’ Logo and another picture of the cheerleaders in the background.

Seems the Broncos’ couldn’t find someone to be the face of the franchise, so they picked the entire cheerleading squad!

This is what they had to say about the Cheerleaders, (and I quote)
..."The Denver Broncos Cheerleaders are one of the premier teams in the National Football League. The Broncos are proud of the work the team does both on the field and most importantly in the community."

OK, so further down, in the middle of the page one can find a display area for Top Stories, Photos, and Blogs.

This looks a little bit more "football" promising...

Top stories include:

Chasing the NFL Dream !
Alphonso Smith and his life long pursuit of chasing pro dreams. He hails from the same Belle Glade area which has produced the likes of Arizona's Anquan Boldin, Pittsburgh's Santonio Holmes and New England's Fred Taylor. A place that University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer once called "the fastest place in the entire country."
What makes this area so special? Well everyone credits the mucky soil and chasing and catching rabbits as the secret to their success.

Don’t believe me, read the article...


Switch Hitter


Darrel Reid is making the switch from DT to LB.



PHOTOS:
Red Rock workouts where the team went to Red Rock ampetheater. A beautiful outdoor ampetheater nestled between two 300 foot rock monoliths. It consists of nearly 70 rows of stairs and benches.








I get tired just looking at the pictures…

So, Regarding the 50th anniversary pages, they have a pretty cool "pick your team" page where, unlike Da Bills, you have a choice of different people for different positions.














They do not have a widget to add to a web page, but they do have a link for Twitter...




So, you can get all the updates on your favorite player and cheerleader!!!

All in all, an authentic looking retro helmet, but I hate the yellow jersey.

Though nice to look at, they need somebody else other than the cheerleaders to be the face of the franchise.

And a good 50th anneversary team page that gives you choices.

One thumbs up !

You can check out all the rest of the AFL 8 retro uniforms here.

And don't forget to vote for your favorite !

Up next... Kansas City Chiefs.
