I've never seen those ones before. That'd be a fun jersey to go to. The royals were nice, but our main jerseys are already similar to those, just darker. The old Bisons logo would be a fun throwback.

I hate to be that guy but I loved the red and black. Maybe it's because I'm younger...idk. I'd love to see them back again and would gladly buy that jersey or any variation thereof. If all we get is a color change to a lighter blue and less armpit stains...I'll keep my 11 other jerseys, 200 bucks and just enjoy the game...Ik I just pissed of people who have been sabres fans longer than me lol I'm sorry.

The Rangers and Knicks lease at MSG stipulates that all their home games must be played there or the Garden's sweetheart tax exemption can go bye bye. NYC politicians would kill their own children if it would allow them to get rid of that exemption so the Dolans won't give them the chance.

I'd like to see the AGH or the gold jersey with the blue charging buffalo.

Rangers wear white/blue/red. Buffalo wears blue/gold/white.

I think we'll probably see a Gold jersey, personally.

That's exactly what happened. Mr Knox was on hand. Lafontaine, Rob Ray, Mathew Barnaby, etc, were all part of the ceremony.

I was there. Remember them raising a banner with the new logo and word mark as the Sabres skated out in them. They played Bush - Machinehead as the intro music.

I think it was before the last game of the season/at The Aud though.

Got a hat right away, but never ever liked the red/black/silver and the angry goat head.

Not the stripes on the jersey but I am posting this for the color of the goat head.

Why did they ever go red and black?
Choice number 1.

The introduction of the "Goathead" was done at an open practice at the Aud.
It took place either the Thursday afternoon or Friday afternoon before the final game at the Aud.
That final game was that Sunday evening vs the Hartford Whalers.

I didn't attend the open practice - remember watching it via the Empire Sports Network - but did attend the Aud finale.

That was one of the rare times I sat in the gold seats for a Sabres game. 95% of the time, I sat in the lower/upper blues for Sabres games.
My Dad and I sat last row of the upper golds almost near center ice on the penalty box side. Won them via a drawing a local supermarket did.

As for the Winter Classic jersey - I would be good with either of the ones that are in the previous post.

Quite honestly why not bring back or modify the 40th anniversary ones? They have no silver/gray and the colors and stripe patterns were pretty awesome

Actually that's not bad.

This idea is very similar to the first Winter Classic uniform for the Sabres.

It'll be something different enough from the home/away jersery's we have now that they'll sell them

I'd like to see true vintage blues or a similar jersey design with the goathead logo.
