Don't be a mark, there are no third jerseys this year...

 

I've been had! I went back and found it, someone retweeted something from 2013. I was wondering why twitter wasn't exploding about it....

50th anniversary.


My hopes for this are low, seeing as how they are already undergoing changes for the unis this season. Would be a quick turnaround for another change.

I can't believe they didn't make the change to royal. Everyone and their mom wants the change! They are tone-deaf to their market.

Perhaps, they are just messing with us.  The Adidas jerseys will look basically like the current Reebok ones.  Then, for the Winter Classic, a new royal blue jersey will be released.  Then, in a year or two, they will switch to it and a white version, thereof.  It could happen ...

Well, it's not a Sabres jersey, but it is royal blue, and it will look very familiar to a lot of folks here.

That has to be a joke ,right?  I'm stupid.  Just realized which game they're talking about and where it will be played.

Designing good jerseys isn't this hard. Who keeps getting hired for these jobs and how do we stop it?

Ugh, a number, a large number, a football number on the FRONT of a hockey jersey. That is freaking awful. It's just pandering. Throw a couple of Polish kids on the team and you got yourself a best seller.

I would expect nothing less from the bumbling designers if they actually conversed with the Sabre folks involved with previous designs...just awful again.

Right? These are awful. Who the heck designs the uniforms in this franchise? Turd burger, grey pits, no more royal blue, now this monstrosity. It's like they are completely clueless.

Or maybe the Sabres franchise had little to do with these USA jerseys. Either way, celebrate USA Hockey tradition. Not NFL tradition.

They're wearing them essentially as a thank you to their host.  It's pretty obvious what they're going for and they translated those jerseys over to hockey just about identically.  I have absolutely no issue with these jerseys.  They are what they are. 

 

It's too bad Canada can't troll us and find a way to go with patriot or dolphin themed jerseys.

To be fair, I don't hate these so much as I just think this is another case where they could have gone just a little further and ended up with something GREAT instead of something that is just okay.

From the latest Adidas teaser ...

While it continues to show that royal blue is not coming back yet, there is one positive thing to note.  The outline on the logo, which I know many would prefer to drop, is clearly WHITE, not silver.  This is a good indication that the silver will be gone.  Baby steps ...

This actually is progress, and makes me wonder what the stripes on the blue uniform will look like.  And are we finally rid of the armpit stains?

I think they're just getting rid of the silver; outline, two stripes and the pits. Nothing more. Cool with me don't have to replace my Reebok home jersey.

That would be a big step forward. 

 

Then, a royal blue WC jersey, which becomes a third and finally becomes their homes for the 50th!  It's all coming together, MUAH-HA-HA! :devil:
