People started giving the throwback jerseys as gift for the wedding occasion and also for other family ceremonies.
Although there is an enormous and deep support for the throwback jersey at present, the fans of the 1960’s did not love the jersey as they do now. They made some abusive comments and forced the team management to change the design of the jersey. The team held a bonfire to burn the striped socks and made the function as a celebration by introducing their new jersey which is more likely loved by the Denver people.
The replacement uniform for the Broncos was designed by Laura North-Allen. The replacement came in 1962 after two years of criticism. The newly designed uniform consisted of orange helmets, white pants and orange or white jerseys. In 1968 the Broncos introduced a new jersey which was famously know as “Orange Crush” received good response among the fans and they continued wearing this for a long period in many games they played.
However the fame of the throwback could not be beaten by any other uniforms. The old people who saw the 50th anniversary match was taken to their childhood days by the uniforms of the Broncos players. It is a pretty good experience to them. For the kids and the young men who were watching it was like a whole new experience and a rare occasion to witness. Overall the fans were in all sorts of excitement while seeing their team players wearing the vintage costume.
