Awesome stuff Hoss, I have a few people signing it as I type

 

I'll also go put it on the Sabres' hfboards if no one else has yet.

By all means. I haven't been over there so I don't know how stuff works there.

You're a good man. Save yourself the aggravation and whiner group there. You get enough here.

Update: I did email Russ with a link and a request for possible response/requirements. Only 54 signatures so far, but maybe if the team has an actual thought on it (highly doubtful) then it could get more attention.

 

I had originally thought Russ had an email the public could easily ask it but I couldn't find it, so I'll refrain from putting it out there. There is a form on WGR if you google it but I have no idea if that works.

How many signatures will we need? If Somone brings a copy of this to Bills or Sabres game you could easily get 1-2k

I'm not sure. That's one of the questions I asked. I'm not even expecting a response. In fact, I expect it to be ignored completely or just die off... But I figured it was worth the effort.

Post the petition to all the social media accounts you own, make this thing go viral in the Buffalo area.  I tweeted a dozen times at the Sabres to bring back beyond blue n gold (I bet tons of other ppl did too)  and it's back so they clearly listen.

 

Tweet it, instagram it, facebook it https://www.change.org/p/russ-brandon-pegulas-bring-back-the-royal-buffalo-sabres?recruiter=58981812&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=share_for_starters_page&utm_term=des-lg-no_src-no_msg

While it would probably be a pain for them to change over the color with all the branding changing in the First Niagara Center, I could actually see this happening, just because the Bills also use royal blue and it could bring them together in a One Buffalo marketing sort of way. I'm pretty sure my "vintage" themed Sabres hats and my Bills hats are the same exact color.

 

On another note, I'd like to see some sweet red and black third jerseys.

Lord no.  They bring back memories of the Golisano era.  I always hated those colors, and the goathead always looked like the logo for an expansion team in a beer league.

Is it possible the Blues were onto something? Navy and royal together looks pretty sharp.

Super late but I was so happy when the Blues did this. It allowed us to have our own exclusive color combo if we ever go back to just Royal and gold.

Is there not going to be a 3rd jersey this year? Why has there not been even a peep about getting these damn colors back. So tired of the black jersey with grey and sparkles....

I feel like the current navy jerseys look really good in person, up close, but on TV, even in high def, they just don't translate that well. They look nearly black. Sometimes if you don't see the logo and look quick, on a wide angle, it almost looks like Steelers colors. This is a primary reason I want them to go back to a brighter, royal blue.

Love the current jerseys. Wouldn't cry if they lost the grey.

Any future changes should by about tweaks, not revamps, like St. Louis and Boston have done over the years.

Why not go back to royal blue original and never tweak it again

Because human nature is such that there will always be somebody that believes they can redo what is out there & make it better. & eventually one of those schmucks will be persuasive enough to say it to the right person & get his (or her) kick @ the can. :(
