76ers alternate

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone else has noted this, but it seems the 76ers new red alternate was on display against CSKA Moscow. It can be seen on getty images worn buy their mascot. Can someone please clarify wether it is actually the new alternate, or just a red jersey made up to match the red colors of CSKA Moscow. If it is the new alternate, I actuallt like it, although they probably could have added some more color to the neck and arms of the jersey. Otherwise it suits the Sixers, and takes them back to the red of old.

(If this has been noted I apologise to the poster in advance)

Hey, as they say down in your neck of the woods, "no worries." There's been quite a bit of speculation on this board about a red Sixers alt replacing the blue one. But I don't know if anything's come of that.

As a sixers fan I want them to rid black from there scheme, use the blue as the standard road and the red as an alt. However, in this case, I am deeply disapointed at the loss of the blue jerseys. They are the only decent Sixers jerseys out there. I will especially hate the reds if they have black lettering like what appears in that pic.

The Sixers website had news about a red alt a couple weeks, maybe a month ago. It didn't say they would wear it, but that a red Allal Iverson replica jersey would be a give away at one of the games.

I doubt they are going to look like what the mascot has been wearing.

From Sixers.com

ALLEN IVERSON RED KIDS JERSEY NIGHT (courtesy of Dodge): vs. Memphis, Friday, March 2

As the Sixers sport their brand new, red alternate jerseys in 2006-07, the first 5,000 kids ages 12 and younger through the gates when the Sixers host the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, March 2, will receive a red Allen Iverson replica jersey. The promotional item, sponsored by Dodge, will bear the seven-time All-Star?s No. 3.

So, yeah they'll be wearing them at some point this year.

In all seriousness, why do they persist in having a rabbit as their mascot? Maybe ive missed something along the way, but as far as im concerned, he/it is the worst mascot goin around at the moment. Surely they have alot more brains than that, and they can come up with something that says "Philadelphia" a bit more.

That's definitely open to debate. My nominee is this guy:

The Sixers are DEF going to red unis this season. EVERY sporting goods store in the Greater Philadelphia Region has current Sixers jerseys marked waaaaaaaaay down. Store managers have confirmed they are trying to move them to make way for the new stock.

The Sixers went to black when Pat Croce purchased them. The dude is fanatical about pirates. He even opened a pirate museum in Florida. He wanted to change the Sixers name to the Pirates but the NBA said NOOOOOO! So he went ahead & made them wear black anyway because he says black is the color pirates wear.

What the hell? What could you possibly have wrong with Sabretooth? He does look a wee bit ridiculous now with the color change, but he's still light years better than that cracked out rabbit.

He's a big goofy cat with a big goofy buffalo on his jersey. With no sabres at all. He could just as easily be a walrus, a hippo, or big piece of pizza and make the same amount of sense.

Have any sources for this little tidbit? I'd have to seriously question the legitimacy of this claim.

And yes - Hip Hop is quite creepy and embarassing... but he's still better than his predecessor, Big Shot.

That has more to do with the change from Reebok to Adidas.
