L-K for 50+ years has been blue and white…..football team had an all black uniform in 2023……saw several pictures of him at school, where he more than likely knew his picture was going to be taken that particular day, and he would have black and brown/tan clothes on with no blue or white…….Jerry Bennett was not a hometown L-K guy, but Jerry was proud to wear blue and white clothing while employed by L-K(just an example). 
Clothing color does not make a person bad, by no means…..not saying he is not a good guy…….But never seen John King at Longview, Scott Surratt at Carthage, or Jeff Taylor when he was at Gilmer wear clothes not in line with their school. 

So if LK hires a coach that owns a bunch of blue polos then y'all will be as good as Carthage? Is that how that works?

What if the shade of blue is wrong though?

Well that obviously wont work... and I am pretty sure that, according to LK's local ordinance, a powder blue polo will result in the death penalty.

All very good points.

If you wrote 5 lines of trolling nice job. If you actually believe black uniforms are a solid reason to be on your 4th head coach in 5 years, you're part of the reason this is a bad job.

why is a black uniform such a big deal? most teams have black uniform options now a days. 

Comes from the "not an official school color crowd". That's why some schools go the gray rout.

You would be surprised at what makes people mad---As AD I ordered new uniforms that had Black outlines on numbers and name---Only black on the uniform. Our basketball coach also did the same thing with replica duke unis. Someof the town people outraged and when I went to admin the next year they threw 10,000 dollars worth of 1 year old uniforms in the dumpster

Not surprised at all.  I've seen that before.  I always check with admin before ordering uniforms.  I know one school that ordered black pants.  They wore them one game, and then had the most expensive practice pants known to man.

Black is definitely ok, it’s the sick grey that makes a uni unbearable.

Yeah. Run out song is “Back in Black” but it should be “Folsom Prison Blues” when those grey uni’s bust through the tunnel.

In my opinion if the KIDS want some black uniforms you get them some black uniforms. 
just because old codgers don’t want them doesn’t mean the kids shouldn’t have them. 
it’s about the kids. 

Next years team doesn’t like black uniforms so buy new ones again?

I've seen a few head coaches try and get some different "non school official" colored uniforms for various sports. Go as far as having the kids vote on a narrow selection for the uniforms and submit it to admin for approval. Only to have some salty old head from the community throw a fit about them and admin then letting the unis rot in a closet. 

 

Let the kids have some fun. Who cares if they wear black when your colors are blue and white? LK aint Bama, UT or Penn St. Hell Refugio is one of the best small school programs in the nation and they change their helmets every other year it almost. Some change and variety in colors can get kids excited to wear the uniform.

Its not uniform related, but one year we started playing pregame music that excited the players and a group of older fans complained that they did not like the music. They said the music should be for the fans not the players. I told one group that if they were playing we might consider it. Did not go over very well.
