I'm not "sour" I just don't like the logo. 

Logos can change (or at least be tweaked)...as the other two said, just be happy the Wings are back!

It's completely fine they changed the logo.

 

In fact, I would argue the old logo was out of date. But I still do not like this one. If I came off as "sour" or pissed off about this, I'm not. 

 

I just think this logo looks like it belongs on the front of an MMA Camp's shirt, not a lacrosse jersey. 

 

If they took the "extra wings" off and just had a stylized "W" with wings on the side, I think it'd be much better. I also think they should drop the khaki/vegas gold/whatever that colour is supposed to be. Black and red, that's the Wing's colours.

Since I can't find any other NLL thread...

 

The Roughnecks changed their home and away jerseys from a not good templated look to their existing alternate template which means the derricks and the riveted numbers are back full time.

That grey arm stripe gets a bit lost on the whites though.

 

And I think I count seven decals on the helmets. Think that's enough?

Yeah, it's nice to see the derricks and rivets in the numbers back on the jersey. When Reebok took over and removed them, it really made their uniforms plain. For a while there, I felt like Colorado and Calgary looked very similar.

I like that teams have these unique little elements to set them apart.

 

The helmet thing, on the other hand, I do not like. Rochester being the worst of the bunch (especially considering their very "hockey like" jerseys).

Continuing on @monkeypower thought: 

 

There really was no big reveal this year for new uniforms (well expect the San Diego one). So here's a quick recap of what's changed (besides Calgary as @monkeypower has pointed out)

Rochester: as per the picture above, they had a teal jersey with diagonal text as their away jersey. This year (as @sohiosportsfreak had alluded to) they changed to purple with the logo on the front

Vancouver: slight changes to the home and away this year. The main difference being the shoulder patches on the black and the Inuit art style design on the bottom of both jerseys

Finally Saskatchewan has a whole new set. All 3 have a different look. The black jersey kind of reminds me of Buffalo's look. The white jersey is basically a green/black version of the Winnipeg Jets jersey with the side panels that the black jersey has. Finally, a green 3rd (which I really like but would prefer the use the regular logo instead of just the "R").

Funny side note: New England doesn't even sell jerseys in their team store online. WTF?

Philly released their new primary jersey today

I don't like the numbers on the back (find them hard to read) but I do like what they did with the shoulders. 

Looks like there's going to be a big shake up in ownership in the NLL as well.

The TL;DR is that the Pegulas (who own Buffalo) are buying Rochester. Current Knighthawks owner (Curt Styres) is getting an expansion team in Halifax and, San Diego owner (Joseph Tsai, who recently took over majority ownership of the Nets) is looking to add a second team to the league in Long Island. Finally, the league has registered a trademark on "Boston Shamrocks" (not sure why it wouldn't be Blazers) but there's no significant movement there.

Don't mind that Black jersey but why have gold highlights on the wings but not have gold wings on the shoulders?

The red on the sides but gold for the wrist is strange.

There'll be plenty of opportunities for clash/aways with all those colors.

 

Looking forward to seeing the new lot of expansion ideas.

 

Also hopefully the Seals dump that Sega wordmark.
