Time for a Jersey change!
 
IMO the Wild Jerseys/Colors are the worst in hockey without question, and maybe all of sports? Way too much going on.. What do the rest of ya'll think?

I made this same thread a while back and got scolded for it. The away white jersey I think is fine and so is the green baseball themed 3rd jersey but it's the combination of Christmas colours on the home jersey that I disagree with

Umm yeah i am going to have to ask you to stop spreading lies.

Wild are one of the best non original 6 jerseys. While they can be better they are hardly awful.

Absolutely, positively, 100% NOT the case. They may not be the best, but they are not the worst in the league....and not even close in all of sports.

Bottom line, they aren't going anywhere.

Blakkmantis 03-31-2012 10:38 PM

I didn't like anything about the Wilds name, jerseys, logo, colors, nothing when they were first announced to the public, but it's grown on me sense then. And I really like the Wild's 3rd jersey now (the green one).

I know it's never going to happen, but about the only thing that will make me completely happy about this would be if we took back the name North Stars, and got the old colors back.

Those jerseys somebody put up earlier in this thread looked pretty cool.

Say hi to Greenlay for Avder. :laugh:

I think the name is okay, it's grown on me. The colors would be better without red, but I think they're moving in a good direction. The logo is great! Really love it.

Where are these votes coming from? Who's voting? I can't believe anyone that's not totally intoxicated or sniffen' crack or Santa Claus himself actually finds these Jersey's/colors attractive..IMO i do believe that this francise got off on the wrong foot BECAUSE of these GOD awful jerseys. Please MR Liepold if your going to spend any $ this off season and you really care about winning please pay someone with some taste to re design this awful look!

You think the design of the jersey and colors affects their ability to win? Are you kidding me? Is this an early April Fool's joke?

ShutDownDefense 03-31-2012 10:50 PM

The "Christmas" ones work, but they just need a bit of fine-tuning, I prefer the green thirds they wear.

There is no way you can tell me these weren't an awesome look back in the day, and would still be one of the best sweaters in the whole NHL today.

The red ones suck... I hate those.

The current greens rock. As did the original greens.

I love those sweaters. But they were for a different franchise. That team is dead. They are in Texas under a different alias. The Wild are a totally different club and identity. While I will wear a North Stars jersey to a Wild game, it's only to pay tribute to the past. I don't want them sticking their nose in with the Wild...at least not while the Dallas Stars are alive.

Blakkmantis 03-31-2012 11:00 PM

In my opinion when Dallas changed the name from the North Stars, to just the Stars, that should have freed up the name for us to use again. I've always head the opinion when a sports team leaves a city/state, for another, they should have to leave the name behind in case the city/state ever got a franchise again. Like Winnipeg, and several other cities that got teams back in other sports. Not sure how old you are but for many or most of us old North Star fans from back in the day, having a team back playing here under another name, just doesn't seem right.

It would be like the Vikings leaving Minnesota, and 10 years later Minnesota gets a NFL franchise back, having them play using a different name just wouldn't seem right. You're entitled to your own opinion, I'll keep mine. My opinion has taken 45 years to form, and it's not going to change now, lol.

ironranger 03-31-2012 11:00 PM

I think most people just don't like the "christmas" home jerseys

I really like the green 3rd jerseys they have and I like the away jerseys too

But even the red ones aren't that bad, not great, but could be worse

Yes i do..No April Fools man...Any hockey player/fan worth his weight in gold knows that without superstitions you aint got s..... Forgive me because i can't remember where i saw it..ESPN the Mag? Hockey News? Blueshirt Banter?..........But they ranked the MN Wild jerseys some of the worst in all of sports. Right down there with the Old Vancouver Canucks-Houston Astros (Jr Richards era)That is a true story my friend.... Just came out like Jan, 2012 maybe?... Your not Kris Kringle by chance are you?

Remember those old Vancouver flying V jerseys they used to have? Those have got to be the worst jerseys in the history of sports. I remember the Wild's first season, they had some opinion poll of players in the NHL on who had the best, and worst uniforms, and it was said then the Wild got the most votes from NHL players for having the worst uniforms in the league. With the original greens being named the worst of the worst. So KG has a point I think, at least some what. And with this team rebuilding with this big youth movement now, a fresh set of better looking uniforms would seem like it could be a nice idea. Fresh start.

I'm happy with the name and jerseys, yes - even the red ones.

We will never be the North Stars again, so people need to just let it go.
