    I'm good on 5 of the 6. Disliked the pre Selanne era Winnipeg jerseys. Thought it was an ugly, bunched up muddled crest. Didn't like the long racing stripe that went all the way down the shoulders. The TV numbers on the away jersey were very ugly

    The greens are beloved. I mean I'm personally not crazy nostalgic for them but there was a push by the Devils fans for years to get them to bring back the greens and Lou finally relented (not an easy thing to do) I think they'll be back again. Devils fans didn't react all to well to the redesigned home jersey so I doubt they'll do something too crazy for alts fwiw the games I've been to I see very few new style jersey.

    Goodness people always looked much older back then. He's 37 years old here. He could pass for 55-60

    Yea I do too, though it would have to be reversed you'd figure. Would looke kind of strange with the grizzly facing backwards on the helmet
  5. Yep. I know for the Mets they actually let the starting pitcher select the uniforms every game. I guess this plays into the oddness and superstitious nature of pitcher too. You want them to be as comfortable as possible up there right down to the uniforms. But yea the players would go out and think they look "fresh" and like "fire" in some Oregon Ducks monstrosity Another way of thinking about it, they're in some very similar uniforms (home, road & practice) very often. Mixing it up with monochrome even once makes it feel like casual Friday to them

    It's not an abject disaster, but it is a dulling down of a nice look. I think they'll go back to the gold socks soon.

    Strange times. I remember all of that and I just couldn't believe the Flyers iconic orange was just...out of the rotation? People like the black jerseys but I mean who was asking for them to be the permanents? For them the orange phase out only lasted a year as by 2002-2003 they got an orange alternate. But then again with the first RBK rollout they ditched orange for good in 2007-2008 and went with a black home jersey. Finally in 08-09 when alternates were reintroduced the Flyers went with a mid 70's inspired jersey, white nameplate. It was so well received you just knew from day 1 that would be the permanent home uni soon. That black horse head jersey for Calgary was terrible and again, who was clamoring for that to be the permanent homes? To me the Flames still look like a mess. They don't belong in black in any way. I don't like any of the piping. They need conventional, horizontal hem stripes. They bring back the classic look as an alternate and it is beloved. Extremely well received. People are begging for you to go back to the classic Flames look. Do they? No

    And he only became an NHL superstar at what 29? His first big year was 1993-1994. Back then it was rare to see an NHL player, goalie or skater, produce great season after the age of 32. Hasek was known as this talented but weird/flakey guy and few thought he'd become this otherwordly puckstopper and bona fide #1.

    Beautiful, solid look. The below jersey eventually was raised from 3rd to permanent road...and while it's not bad it's something that should've been kept as an alternate. Don't like the pointy shoulders

    Maybe the success of the team enhances it a bit? I always saw them as purely average in every way. And I don't think there will ever be a fulltime return to the old red Pete Patriot stuff. Though the whole Flying Elvis thing I never got. I never looked at that logo and saw Elvis. I think they will change things up a bit once Brady retires as to usher in a new era, but I doubt much is changed.

    6-0, back then the Pats had a nightmarish rookie kicker named Missin Scott Sisson. 0-2 on his FG attempts.

    Lucky I was wearing an extra large piece of the true cross today.

    It doesn't but it is very rare to have a nice uniform without the waist stripe to properly balance out thee jersey and frame the logo. The Flyers had themselves a good jersey here. Good, not great. The 70's look was without a doubt great.
