FLYERS NEW THROWBACK...

sucks.

the front is ok, but i guess they figured since the white nameplate (which is original & throwback esque) was so popular, they would screw with the integrity of the white throwbacks with a black nameplate.

BAD. Between that and the Sixers half assed attempt at mixing past and present, Philly's got some dumb new looks.

Not sure that I'd call the white nameplate popular.

This new black nameplate certainly won't be... at least not amongst those of us with taste.

I'd also recommend trying to find better ways of expressing your displeasure than disparaging an entire group of people, a group that has representation on these boards.

Those throwback-inspired jerseys are just awful.

They're not gay, though, unless jerseys have developed a gender. And genitalia.

Well, that wouldn't be unheard of. After all, Oregon State's jerseys did develop secondary sexual characteristics for a season.

Nope.

Still waiting for that list of young goalies that the Flyers gave up on too soon.

"Gay" is a a bigoted slur?

Given, not an appropriate use of the word in this thread, but i think the word is the accepted term for homosexuals, and is four syllables shorter...

Those jerseys would have been perfect if not for the really stupid black nameplate. I understand having the white nameplate on the orange jersey, wether or not i agree with it. This black nameplate is just nonsense.

Right, but it's all about context. He's using the word to describe something that he hates and things is bad. That implies that he has a negative outlook on anything that can be described by that term. Not being a member of said group, I'm not personally offended, I just think it shows a major lack of maturity. Of course, on a board like this, the OP could be 11-years old for all I know.

"...certainly won't be" is not a statement of opinion. It's a statement of opinion as fact. Not the same thing.

This new black nameplate certainly won't be... at least not amongst those of us with the same tastes as me.

That black nameplates arent bad, but the Winter Classic usually means throwback jerseys, so I dont know why the Flyers felt that they needed to pretty much add a new jersey to the mix. Its going to become their away jersey in the future, but maybe it will lose the black nameplate before it does so...
