EVANSTON, Il. – A new football uniform unveiled to help the “Wounded Warrior Project” is getting quite a bit of attention.

Northwestern will sport these jerseys in their home game against Michigan University Nov. 16.

However, the team it catching some heat after football fans noticed they are covered in “blood spatter.”

The jerseys are to be auctioned off to benefit the “Wounded Warrior Project” after the game.

Many fans are taking issue with the “blood” on the uniform helmets, pads, cleats and gloves.

Patriotic references also include a complete red, white and blue look with each player’s name replaced by one of seven “core value embellishments.”

Those include “Duty, Honor, Courage, Commitment, Integrity, Country and Service.”

The “Wounded Warrior Project” helps veterans as they recover and adjust to life-changing injuries from the battlefield.
