Despite the Lions' yearbook saying that the middle stripe did not get turned white until 1972, photos show that the pants for 1969-71 have that same stripe appearing to be lighter than the grey of the rest of the pants - but still not white. This is, perhaps, due to different material being used for the stripe.
Therefore the central stripe has been changed to a very light grey to contrast with the grey of the pants while at the same time not being completely white, either.
Also added 2 stripeless jerseys to yearly for preseason only per Tim for 1970 (photos attached)
