People with red/green colorblindness are justifiably upset about unwatchable Bills-Jets game

The COLOR RUSH jerseys probably seemed like a good idea to the NFL because, well, because it gave them more stuff they could sell.

Here's what they didn't consider when pitting the Bills against the Jets in all red and all green though.

Color blindness affects roughly 1 in 12 men and 1 in 200 women in the world, so this is kind of a major mistake on the part of the NFL.

With red/green color blindness being the most common type, and with there being no white on the jerseys at all, it would be almost impossible for the NFL to design two uniforms that would cause as much of an issue as these two do.
