With you on the striping and fonts but teal made that look.

 

Meh, if they were a '90s expansion team the teal would've been fine, but they were just jumping on a fad to try and boost merch sales.

Hey all,

Heard from an acquaintance who works for the Yotes that the Kachina logo is on its way towards becoming the primary logo for the team once again. The team is phasing out the Coyote head logo and may very well adopt the Kachina full time and discontinue the old styling. The team has already ditched the old logo in marketing and was planning on wearing solely the Kachina uniform at home games if they were in the playoffs.

Just saw something on twitter the other day where one of the main reporters, forget who, seemingly out of nowhere asked Jacob Chycrun his thoughts on the Kachina jersey and he said the players love them and want to wear them more. So maybe something brewing.

Great news, the current jerseys have aged as well as milk.

I like the design of the Kachina jersey, but I think the colours are all too dark.  Maybe a slightly brighter green.  I prefer the current logo over the Kachina.  Too bad they can't go back to the 2003-07 set and keep the Kachina as the alternate.

Ech, no thanks. I found that set exceedingly dull. All burgundy and three white stripes was dull then and it's dull now.

 

I say make the Kachinas the primaries, but use the new color scheme in them. Sand, red, black, maybe some purple to spice things up, and you're golden.

I never thought I’d say this, but I really like the look of Arizona’s primaries, mainly due to colour balance. If they’d replace the bigger stripes on each jersey with the kachina pattern, that would look nicer IMO.

I can't get behind the Kachina as a primary. People like it now because it's a 90s nostalgic uniform that's being used sparingly. Once it becomes a primary, it's gonna lose its charm. Keep it as an alternative.

The locals love the kachina jerseys, as do Coyotes fans in general (me among them). Given that the players like them and ownership is very high on them, going back to that direction was inevitable.

Besides, this isn't a 1967 expansion team or an Original Six club. It's a team established in 1996 with an iconic look, I don't really feel there's a need for the Coyotes to try to be overly-classic looking. Appeal to the market's desires, and the market is pretty firmly in the Kachina camp.

 

That, and the Kachina is when the team had it's most prolonged success; they've been mostly a disaster on ice since moving to the Howling Coyote outside of the 2011-12 season.

The Kachina's toe the line between classic and modern perfectly. It's a traditional hockey striping design, but with the flare of the pattern on the stripes.

 

I also love the picassoyote. Maybe it's nostalgia, but if even it is IDC, I loved that logo as a kid and still love it now.

I think they should just use the head of the Kachina coyote as the primary logo. Would be a good compromise between the current and original look, plus the head looks less busy on a jersey than the full body coyote.

I think the current version of the Kachina jerseys is maybe the only example of the Adidas collars improving a design. I always thought the biggest weakness of the originals was how big and clunky the collars were.

I hope that they make some tweaks to the design if they decide to pull the trigger on making the logo the primary. The big triangular yoke made the thing a little too busy, IMO.

The new Kachinas need to go back to the old thicker collar.

I like the katchina jerseys in concept, but execution wise it's a bit of a mess and they look way too dark.

They also need to add "ARIZONA" to the shoulder patches. They look too empty with just half of the name.

Some day in a not too distant future there will be people clamouring for the return of the Buffaslug.

I would never put the Kachina uniforms in the same category as the Buffaslug.

That's a terrible take. If it's your best look, make it your primary. The Kachina is their best look, therefore, it should be the primary after significant cleanup of the shades/changing it up enough to justify keeping the throwback set.

Although I rarely see any coyotes gear on campus, whenever I do it always has the kachina logo and it's always in dining halls and around dorms so its probably freshmen born between 00-02 (ASU doesn't really have upperclassmen housing) so nostalgia wouldn't be a factor for them. Phoenix loves the Kachina look
