The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. They compete in the National Football League as a member club of the National Football Conference North division; the team plays its home games at Ford Field in Downtown Detroit. Based in Portsmouth and called the Portsmouth Spartans, the team formally joined the NFL on July 12, 1930 and began play in the 1930 season. Despite success within the NFL, they could not survive in Portsmouth the NFL's second smallest city; the team was purchased and relocated to Detroit and subsequently renamed the Lions for the 1934 season. The Lions have won four NFL championships. However, their last was in 1957, which gives the club the second-longest NFL championship drought behind the Arizona Cardinals, they are one of the only NFC team to have not yet played in the Super Bowl. They are the only franchise to have been in operation for all 54 seasons of the Super Bowl era without having appeared in one. Aside from a brief change to maroon in 1948 instituted by head coach Bo McMillin, influenced by his years as coach at Indiana, the Lions uniforms have remained the same.
The design consists of silver helmets, silver pants, either blue or white jerseys. The shade of blue used for Lions uniforms and logos is known as "Honolulu blue", inspired by the color of the waves off the coast of Hawaii. There have been minor changes to the uniform design throughout the years, such as changing the silver stripe patterns on the jersey sleeves, changing the colors of the jersey numbers. "TV numbers", which are auxiliary uniform numbers to help TV broadcasters identify players from the line of scrimmage, were added to the jersey sleeves in 1956. White trim was added to the logo in 1970, with outlines added to the numbers in 1972; the gray facemasks became blue in 1984. In 1998, the team wore blue pants with their white jerseys along with grey socks but dropped that combination after the season. In 1999, the "TV numbers" on the sleeves were moved to the shoulders. In 1994, every NFL team wore throwback jerseys, the Lions' were similar to the jerseys used during their 1935 championship season.
The helmets and pants were solid silver, the jerseys Honolulu blue with silver numbers and the jersey did not have "TV numbers" on the sleeves. The team wore black cleats; the helmets did not have a logo, as helmets were simple leather back then. The Lions wore'50s-style jerseys during their traditional Thanksgiving Day games from 2001 to 2004 as the NFL encouraged teams to wear throwback jerseys on Thanksgiving Day. In 2003, the team jerseys; the face masks on the helmet changed from blue to black with the introduction of the new color. In 2005, the team introduced an alternate black jersey. For 2008, the team dropped the black jersey in favor of a throwback uniform to commemorate the franchise's 75th anniversary; the throwback uniform became the team's permanent alternate jersey in 2009, replacing the former black alternate. The Lions unveiled a new logo and uniforms on April 20, 2009; the logo was given a flowing mane and fangs. On February 1, 2017, the Lions announced a new typeface and the complete removal of the color black from the team identity.
While the previous logo was retained, the border was changed from black to silver. The Lions unveiled the new uniforms on April 13, 2017, which include blue pants for the first time since 1998; the Lions added the initials "WCF" to the left sleeve as a permanent tribute to William Clay Ford, who owned the team from 1963 until his death in 2014. The sleeve addition replaces the black "WCF" patch on the left breast, added after Ford's death. In 1934, then-team owner George A. Richards, the owner a major radio affiliate of the NBC Blue Network, WJR in Detroit, the forerunner to today's ABC, negotiated an agreement with NBC to carry his Thanksgiving games live across all of the network's stations. Since the tradition of the Lions playing on Thanksgiving has continued uninterrupted. Notes: 1 The #56 was unretired with Schmidt's blessing when the Lions acquired linebacker Pat Swilling from the New Orleans Saints. No player has worn it. 2 Posthumous. Hughes died of a heart attack during a game on October 24, 1971, his #85 was withdrawn from circulation.
Over the years, the number would return to circulation.
