Milwaukee Admirals one-off sweaters

Recommended Posts

The Milwaukee Admirals, continuing their partnership with the Brewers (much of their ownership group is made up of Brewer players, ownership and management, the NL club is their jersey sponsor, and the two teams sell combination ticket packages), are wearing a sweater influenced by the old Brewers' blue roads on Saturday.

That sweater seems to have been leaked on the Admirals' website:

I'm really disappointed. I would have loved for it to say "Milwaukee" like the original Brewers jerseys did:

What a missed opportunity.

EDIT: That damned Admiral webmaster keeps uploading new graphics with the same name, foiling my hotlinking.

I like the Admirals across the chest, it makes the jersey more of a Brewers inspired look than just a Brewers hockey jersey. Not that it wouldn't look bad with Milwaukee across the chest, I just think for the team Admirals makes more sense.

Funny thing is, I hate the blue pullovers in baseball, but as a hockey jersey, not so bad.

Can anyone tell me how long the contract with Reebok is to sport the 'Edge' jerseys, if there is a specific contract madating the use of the jerseys ?

Can individual teams decide to opt out or is it mandatory for a certain period of time?

Why do teams do this? Some really minor league team (the Youngstown Steel Hounds) just did Ohio State Unis.

To auction them off for money, and as a promotion to attract fans. You need more than just a game to get people to come in the minors (usually).

Yeah, I fixed it in the first post.

Interesting - if that graphic is accurate, the reports were correct and the AHL alts are not using the RBK EDGE template.

Most definitely. The Wolves have been wearing 3rd jerseys at home this year, and they're the same style and cut as their 06/07 version. Doesn't seem to be hurting them in the standings when they go up against a performance-enhanced, Edge-clad team. I believe Philadelphia also wore a non-Edge one off around the start of the season.

The respective difference between them saying "Admirals" and "Milwaukee" is the difference between me saying "oh, those look nice" and getting me to drop my hard earned money on one of them.

Seriously... is it so much to ask that ONE Milwaukee team actually puts "Milwaukee" on a jersey. They'll never have the statewide appeal of the Packers or Badgers... and that's OK!!!

Okay... is it so much for me to ask for one of the Milwaukee teams that actually sells jerseys to put the city name on it.

And Mockba... you've really been reaching for those "you hate Northern Wisconsin" accusations lately. Just give it up man :rolleyes:
