06:50 AM ET 04.25 | There are few things that are more sure to irk a marketing department than the leaking of a new uniform, which happened by accident. The Vikings were set to reveal their new uniforms at their draft party Thursday at Mall of America Field, but an inadvertent photo leak on a Jacksonville TV news website beat them to it. Actionnewsjax.com posted photos of the Jaguars' new uniforms -- which were officially released Tuesday -- and along with them accidentally revealed the Vikings' new look as well. Most of the changes are subtle, but among the more noticeable differences. ... Said Vikings spokesman Jeff Anderson, via Twitter: "Yes, image of #VikingsUniforms was leaked, but team has full reveal campaign planned for fans at Draft Party. That doesn't change."

We were hoping the Vikes would come out in furs and armor, with real horns on their helmets.

Boo Hoo, you took a picture of my new duds. It's like an ugly girl screaming that we saw her in her underwear...nobody cares!
The 2012 Vikings Uniforms are sharp...the 2013 are so boring, it reminds me of the hype people had for the Pontiac Aztek.

In the case of the ViQueens... more like Floki.

They should sacrifice their punter to ensure good health for Adrian Peterson.

Agreed.

What would the penalty be for goring someone - just 15 yards and a first down, right?

Just the 15 yards for offensive goring. It's one of those assymetric penalties.

Nah - five yards.



Beheading is 15.

WELL IT DOES SPOIL THE DRAFT DAY PARTY- the Vikings had planned to ask the audience if they could spot the changes as Fran Tarkington modeled the new jersey, the winner gets last years throwback jersey.

If that was the case, the Browns would be dressed like a deuce. But, then again, that's how they play, so we'd never notice.

The thought of Darelle Revis, dressed like a Buccaneer and swinging a cutlass, is scary.

Especially with an agent sitting on his shoulder squaking "Revis want a contract! Revis want a contract!"

Ah, the Mad Magazine-style take on Revis. I like it.
