Yeah I know. I'm really hoping they frigged up and that it's just a small misunderstanding. I have no idea how any of this works but if they were told and not actually shown the socks, maybe there's been a mixup about the Ducks saying they would be using home socks or something, but they meant home as in white, the way it was in the 90s . Also, this is a very minor mistake most people won't notice but they got the gloves wrong for Calgary and Buffalo

The sun is a star and there are trillions of solar systems, each with a sun. 

 

Why would Phoenix name their team after a trillion of other stars in other solar systems? 

 

It's not Valley of the Suns. 

 

The Sun is a star...but to call other stars "suns" isn't scientifically correct. Even NASA capitalizes Sun to denote it as a proper noun and not just a generic word for a star.

Again, we're getting really pedantic and into the weeds here. My only point is that I find names of a single specific geographic indicator, like "Rainiers" awkward. Contrast it with if they were called the "Cascades", it would be more palatable. Its just a personal preference, like many find "Avalanche" or "Magic" bad.

So the Ducks names are curved, like the original Wild Wing jersey, but all the customized jerseys sold, including mine, have straight names...

 

The masks are cool though

This whole board is the very definition of pedantic. I don't really take it as the insult you intended.

I've been completely civil. If you feel insulted thats on you.

I agree with you in principle, but imo theres a bit of difference between the Sun and all the cultural, scientific, mythological etc baggage that comes with it and a specific mountain from a specific area. Its not necessarily a logical argument, but the names do feel different.

 

If I wanted to get really pedantic though, I could make the argument that there are billions of suns, and the Sun, "Solis just our Sun.

Well they could be referring to to type of cherries thus being rainiers

Washington looks so much better in their RR uniform.  The edge template looks really bad in comparison now.

The edge uniforms always looked really bad in comparison to every other uniform they’ve worn in same timeframe

Dark socks are an odd choice.

Booooooooooooo

Looks like a pee wee team that could only afford one pair of socks. That's just stupid. Ruins the jersey imo

The colors are great...The socks are dumb. 

 

Bring back jade and eggplant, Ducks! Keep the current logo if you want...just get away from boring black and orange.

I don't hate the dark socks. There is enough jade on the jersey that they don't look terribly out of place.

 

Wild Wing on white looks awful because his lines aren't thick enough to contrast on the jersey.

 

10/10 concept, 5/10 for execution.

Since we're getting pedantic, the Sun's official English name is the Sun.
