New Royal Blue Jerseys To Debut August 11, 9am


Recommended Posts

I am 50% ecstatic that they're finally going back to the proper color, and 50% dreading it, as the entire endeavor is sure to be hilariously botched in some respect, as PSE just can't help themselves.

I remember when the slug came out after Larry Quinn had the original road jersey on display at a press conference as the "new 3rds".  That sucked.

One thing that bugs me is that they seemed to know the navy colour scheme didn't work: the 40th anniversary, the 50th anniversary, and the two Winter Classic jerseys were far more popular than the ones they normally used.

Although they were not my taste, I think they consider having the shoulder patches have the red-black-grey of the demonic goat and crossed sabres as a nod to those fans.  JMO.

This is the Head of Creative Design for Adidas, who was directly involved in the design of this jersey, as well as the 50th and the 2018 WC. He’s from North Tonawanda and currently resides in East Aurora and a Huge Sabres Fan

A whole week to announce a jersey? Biron also said something about 'surprises'...

 

I'd happily take the 50th one's as a third.

An entire week sounds pretty silly, especially if everything is so dire that 1/3 of the scouting department needed to be axed plus all the other cost-cutting. I mean... Seattle unveiled an entire franchise (video, overlong speeches, name, and jerseys) in about 35 minutes. I guess there's desperation to distract us from the start of the actual Stanley Cup playoff?

Put a team in the playoffs. I don't give a flying F what shade of blue you wear.

 

Ten years of hemming and hawing over the shade of blue. You get your wish and now we don't care. I called it.

That won't happen in the next 4 years so at least look good, looking like crap.

I am 100% sure they will still fck the whole jersey up because that's what happens every time they try to give the fans something we want.

It's not my wish. I don't like the royal blue any way. They can wear pink. It makes no difference.

You never miss an opportunity to piss in the Cheerios of a justifiably displeased Sabres fan do you?

Some fans cared, some don’t. I never did. Still don’t.

Enough fans cared to make it an issue for years. Now on to the next thing: trading Jack Eichel.

While I am 100% certain they will ***** this up proper, there is just no way that can happen.

I need the goat head erased from existence.  Fans insistence on having them incorporated somehow is an assault to my senses.

Yes, but those aren’t the ones saying that don’t care and just want to win.

Good or bad jerseys, they aren’t getting another penny out of me until they show that they know what they are doing.  17 years as STH did me in.  No more tix, merchandise, or anything else. Watch the games for free on TV, and that’s it.
