Toronto roadrunners jerseys


-kj

Recommended Posts

Looks like the RRs have jerseys:

Blue jersey

White jersey

They're very similar to the IHL Phoenix Roadrunner jerseys, including the same logo and same striping pattern, but they've darkened the blue considerably. The version in their online store (shown above) has no shoulder trim, and a Toronto logo on the shoulders.  However, their mascot seems to be wearing a version with shoulder trim, which is what the team wore in Phoenix, though his has the updated colours:

Rocky the Roadrunner

One has to wonder why they still have a desert theme in their online store logo, though I guess it ties into the Road Runner from the old-school WB cartoons.

If I remember correctly, there was a newspaper clipping that we saw that had a jersey not unlike this one in it... I think at the time we expected a real jersey to be unveiled, that these would just be the temporaries for promotional purposes. I guess I was wrong.

The Phoenix Roadrunners used a much lighter blue, closer to a Honolulu blue than the navy they're now going to use.

A team in the league I play in uses the white and black versions of these.

Good call on the Oiler colours, I didn't even notice. They do look the same.

I've only looked at these jerseys from the website. I'm no quite sure what to make of the "Toronto" shoulder patch. I'm hoping to find a jersey somewhere in downtown Toronto soon. Does anyone remember the "training" jerseys that the Roadrunners used in their final days in Phoenix?

How about these jerseys?

i gotta say i like the jerseys, but the logo is old outdated and i don't think it fits the city well. that's just me, but that logo is very lame-ish.

*smacks ez street with back of hand*  

all i gotta say is it's aged very well.  whaddaya want for em, the new 'Jayz' crap? :;):

A modernization wouldn't hurt the logo IMO. Keep the same idea and elements like the Seahawks did, while bringing the logo into the 21st century.

It has aged remarkably well... just think how many other WHA logos are still around.

It's not a horrible logo, though it still does have a 70s look to it.

Only major problem I have is.. WHY MUST YOU PUT "ROADRUNNERS" ON THE FRICKIN' JERSEY?!?!

Sorry, this my brown, if you will.  Why must teams slap a name on there when they have an otherwise perfectly workable logo?
