I mean, I loved it back when the original "leak" happened. And while I'm happy they announced royal blues, we kinda knew they were going back to them for a couple years now.

These are just beautiful jerseys, that's all there is to it. 

Did we know that though? We thought that when they left the slug and they did a navy blue; we all hoped and were pretty certain we would go back to the original colors for awhile now, but I don't think a lot of people really thought it was 100%

I trusted Callaway, who's been saying this for a while, because he got the winter classic jersey right a couple years ago

It reminded me a lot of when the Bills took Ed Oliver this year. It was the obvious choice, but in years past we would have taken an off the board, idiotic pick (like Maybin over Orakpo)

Buffalo franchises aren't exactly great at making the obviously correct choices, but lately it seems to have changed a little bit

I disagree, it is completely awful.

I think it is the most ugly Buffalo ever.  Really, who has ever heard of a gold coloured Buffalo.

Really, this is terrible.  NS does not approve, but that does not matter.

That is probably the literal best part of this jersey.

I think people are still hungover from the Royal Blue punch being served up yesterday.  

So you're saying it worked.

Royal blue swapped with the navy parts would have been the perfect thing to do with the announcement yesterday. I would never expect them to do the right thing so pretty much par for the course.....

Thank you for reminding me of my worst draft moment. My dad and I were so stoked for Orakpo when he fell to us.

In my opinion, navy looks better with the metallic gold.

That thing is frickin' ugly. I do not...repeat: DO NOT...like the gold treatment at all. The only thing cool is the white gloves.

My problem with this statement is that you are assuming that people who like this jersey are dumb suckers and you are some wiser person who sees through the charade. 

My second problem is they are separate things. Without a Royal Blue announcement the gold jersey is objectively nice. I think the Buffalo crest is great. Clever use of stitching to bring out the main of the Buffalo. The colors are clean and clear. For an anniversary jersey it is nice. 

In reality you some up why dislike it separate from the royal blue without needing to talk down to people who do like it. You don't like the gold, that's fair.

Agreed. The royal doesn't have enough contrast and would wash it all out.

I might buy it for the crest alone. Well done, Sabres. 

Yes, that bison on the crest is impressive.

From the page announcing the jersey, "The inner neckline features logos from throughout the team's history, an homage to past eras of Sabres hockey."  They should have put them on the outer neckline.

You can't redesign my kitchen, either.

I want to come back to this. First the must ugly Buffalo ever was the slug and the Turdburger was the most ugly jersey.

Second how is it that the "gold colored Buffalo" is a deal breaker?

Don't want too, just want an acknowledgement that people like it isn't contingent on the Royal Blue announcement.

Sir, please don't ever ask to design my kitchen.

Is this the same kitchen that Archibald Leach, Bernard Schwartz, and Lucille LeSueur have never been in?

*Yes, I had to google the three names.

I hate to say it, but I have to agree with you. It doesn't thrill me. I am thrilled with the royal blues though! (and yes, bring back the shoulder patches!!!!) I do hope the 50th season shows promise for this club and our new head coach. Would really dread another woeful season, especially a 50th anniversary one.

For me the gold and the blue are too close tonally (is tonally a word?)... doesn't have enough contrast. I'd be interested in what Josie has to say.

Exactly. With the gloss/metallic quality, it actually takes on some of the blue and looks green-ish.
