I'd like to congratulate the Flames on besting the previous ugliest jersey in NHL history.

We have no Tigers here in Calgary. Some Cougars down on 17th though.

I feel they should have at least one positive comment: I honestly think they are kind of cool and If I was a Calgary fan I would want one of those jerseys over the normal ones.

I like it. They're not for everyone but I could slip into that jersey and manage to look good. I wonder what they'll look like in full gear

Straight out of McDonalds.

Still better than the Montreal pinstripe.

yeah, I'm sure a lot of people will look at them and view them as ugly etc., but you have to take into account the Flames only have 30 years of history, unlike the other teams who have been in Winter classics etc. who actually have vintage jerseys to reprise, so it's a bit more of a Calgary Heritage Jersey, not a Calgary Flames Heritage Jersey.

The Flames' vintage jersey is our 3rd jersey for this upcoming season (the one used in 6 games last year, unveiled last summer)

I can understand the throwback, but why not just put the tiger then to complete it.


Combining the old time "stripe" with the "Flaming C" doesn't work for me.


Maybe if the stripes had been red and white or red and black...maybe, but wow, can't say this is the prettiest jersey I've seen.

The fact they're calling it the "Heritage Classic" irritates me. At least make up your own theme instead of ripping off ours.

Flames fans have no right to criticize any other jersey, EVER again!
