Why Don’t We Have The Technology For TV Viewers To Create Their Own Uniform Colors For NFL Teams?

We've got another NFL color rush game comin' up, folks: the Rams, in full mustard yellow, are taking on the Buccaneers, in ketchup red, on Thur... wait, suddenly I have an uncontrollable urge for a hot dog.
The game is on Thursday, Dec. 17, in St. Louis, and at least this time color-blind fans won't have much of a problem distinguishing the two uniforms, as happened last month when the Bills (red) played the Jets (green). The Rams' and Bucs' unis are seen above, and some in social media are saying that they actually look pretty sharp.
But this is 2015: the age of technology. And to me this just doesn't fly.
There are many things that should have happened by now that haven't. Where are our personal jet packs that allow us to fly to work? Where are our hoverboards that actually hover? Where are our Jetsons flying cars? And where the hell is TV technology that allows NFL game viewers to choose uniform colors, helmet designs, etc.?
Video game companies have been doing this for years: Look at the choices you have in Call of Duty Ghosts:
Imagine if you could do that prior to watching an NFL game? I think I'll have the Raiders in neon blue today, and the Chargers? Look at these stainless steel silver helmets. And if your team is losing and you want to change their vibe? Just go into the control panel and change their uniforms. Lions in all black, with pulsating electric blue accents. That'll turn the tide.
We need this technology now. Take the choices out of the hands of the owners and Nike, and give it to the PEOPLE, as the football gods intended. Bum rush the color rush. If we can put a man on the moon, we can put Tom Brady in bright orange.
