I will bang the drum to go back to the royal blue into I am royal blue in the face but having said that, are there not going to be any 3rd jerseys for Buffalo this year? Anyone see this contest winner?

I'm telling you, 5 years. That'll be the 50th Anniversary and this team will, theoretically, be coming into its prime; perfect time for a full redesign and go back to the royals.

I hope so, the Bills finally got it right.

Russ Brandon in charge of the Sabres helps your cause, too.

I've been considering a petition for a long time. Should I get it started? Maybe we'll petition for them to make the change when Adidas takes over or in 2020 for the 50 year?

I think the Sabres should push for an outdoor game in 2020. Introduce the originals as the new home and away and then introduce the goatheads as the stadium series uniform.
Alternate can be whatever else they want (the red Sabre alternate turned gold or blue?

I really don't want to see black and red on the Sabres ever again.  Some people are reminded of the 1999 Cup finals team; to me it screams Rigas.  I don't want to go back to that era.

Thank you.

 

the Sabres are/were a blue and gold team.  that black, white, and red mess was some expansion team that Rigas had here until he got nabbed.

Agree with this. I still would prefer the royal blue, but if we have the navy, the grey should be gone.

Not a fan of thirds. 

Would love to just see the  road whites at home games, league-wide, in alternate months.

Or let every team determine what jersey to wear at beginning of the season. I also prefer whites at home. (just get rid of gray underarm)

http://www.diebytheb...ey-the-champion

 

Oof!  These are wrong on so many levels.... (for instance, third jerseys are worn only at home and would be team color, not white).

 

I was never a fan of the red and black - the only reason the team picked these colors is because at the time the hottest-selling sports jerseys were Chicago Bulls shirts (and that was only because of Jordan...and the winning).

 

NHL should go back to home whites and road colors.  That way, when a team comes to town, you get to see their colorful jerseys, not the plain old white things..... 

 

I'm still ambivalent about alternate jerseys - too much like a money grab and (especially lately), the designs look like sh...er, crap.

I'm convinced it was because it matched Adelphia's colors.

Can't agree more.  Get rid of the blue/almost black and also any silver in the unis.  The Sabres are the blue and gold, NOT blue, gold and silver armpits.

I read somewhere recently that one league (NFL?) is considering color vs. color uniforms when they are not too similar.  The concept that light and dark were developed to handle B&W television and that today it's not really needed.

 

Could be good in the NHL as well.  Some teams would remain too similar and you'd need white sweaters.. but having a blue versus nashville gold or carolina red wouldn't be bad.

 

Then again.. color blind players might have a problem with it.

The Winter Classic with Toronto and Detroit did this, I didn't like it very much.

When Liverpool and Everton play their Merseyside Derby, the effect of the reds against the blues is quite something.

Reds against the Blues always just makes me think of various team-based video games I've been obsessed with over the years.  The two most prominent being Team Fortress 2 and Halo (more for the machinima series than the actual halo games).

Just look at the carnage. That Chang player is nearly dead. Clearly in agony. And probably maimed for life. This sport should be banned. Unless that poor man stands up and continues to play in the next 30 seconds.
