On both my TV and my computer it's very blue, not a hint of purple.

Do you really want to argue with me?

I like the blue. I like the tight.

Makes his ass look huge though :o

:drool:

I knew he wouldn't be able to go through with an outfit overhaul in the middle of the season at a big tournament :lol: What an adorable little freak he is :inlove:
The tight is gooood and the ass is :hearts:

and he really needs to stay with the sleeveless. I have a thing about arms and shoulders and his are the best around :drool:

It seems I care more about the outfit than I originally thought :p I forgot how much a change could hinder my viewing pleasure!
Excuse my intruding here but this made me smile from the BBC website:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/funny_old_game/7570547.stm

"I was in the laundry and I realised I was standing right next to [Rafael] Nadal. I didn't bother him but he was shoving all his colours and whites in together. I really wanted to say, 'Dude, you're going to have a nightmare with that. You can't just put the whole bag in - there are reds in with whites'. But what can you do?"
British cyclist Jamie Staff, who won gold in the team sprint.

Love the idea of him doing his own laundry but shall be watching the whites carefully from now on.
:haha: I love this cute story. If he comes out in pink pants any time in the future we will know why :lol:

No. Its Purple grape.
It is SO blue. There is no hint of purple at all! If Nike wanted to call this Concorde or grape they should have remembered to add the red dye when they made it!

Now I will show you Concorde purple, Rafas current flavour of choice.
http://i34.tinypic.com/f5aps4.jpg
Notice it is much darker then the blue above yet not navy or black. It is indeed purple.

Finally I will show you what the colour Navy looks like. Be careful now, you dont want to mistaken it for black do you.. :D

Maybe RAFA decided not to wear "The New Preppy Look" (Orange with Sleeves Shirt and Blue Wristbands) he wore during Arthur Ashe Kids Day coz it has the same Colors (Orange Shirt and Blue Wristbands) as Djoker's Outfit made by Adidas. :scratch:

I think the "New Look" does look good on Him, makes him look slimmer :scratch: ... BUT I prefer his "Old Look"... coz that's his trademark "Rafa The Bull Nadal look.... :D

I've never doubted you. And I don't know why some people here did.

Could they have picked more hideous pictures of the two players for that 'Grapple in the Apple' promo?

X, I heard he will have a new outfit (shirt with sleeve and shorts) for Madrid. Is that true? :p

I saw some concord grapes at the grocery store the other day. The color didn't look like Rafa's shirt. :(

Are you trying to claim that no concord grape EVER has been the same color as that shirt. Those grapes you posted are different color to star's. I conclude that one bunch could be the same colour as Rafa's shirt.

How much can grapes of one variety vary?

:rolleyes:

Edit: Ohmygod! The reason they are slightly different is because they are unwashed and have that little covering that grapes get.. like hoarfrost or someting. See pic above -- some have a bit of it and some don't.

I saw several bunches (all washed) on the shelf at the grocery store and they all looked the same. As star says above the difference in color is due to the dust.

Your conclusion is :bs: l_mac

Probably Nike was aiming for a really dusty concord blue.

I will email them.

I forget what the initial argument was. Did X say concord was purple?

And everyone who doubted Xristos should now aplogise.

Ladies and gentlemen, here is definitive proof to answer the question that has been torturing us for several weeks now: my very own concord grapes photographed at home by me. :worship:

If this isn't blue I don't know what is. :)
