Fixed. It wasn't because the original Sabres jersey was bad that they changed it, it was because the owners (correctly) figured they could make a ton of money by changing the logo and selling brand new jerseys.

I don't know how anyone could dislike this. After all, it has all the important elements, namely:
1) It's from a Canadian team, and
2) It's a pseudo-traditional look

Also, the Flames don't have 30 years of history to draw from; they have 38. As much as certain people would like to ignore the fact that there was an NHL team in Atlanta previously, it still happened.

Google "Burger King jersey" and the first image is Rob Blake sporting one of these stylish numbers.
Rob Blake was injured for the majority of the 1995-96 season, including the games that featured the Burger King jerseys.

So why use their jersey design?

The Flames franchise is as stubborn as they come, no way will they re-consider. Turn your TV to non-hd and enjoy this game. Save your retina's the strain.

This would have been so much better:

I like the turtle neck idea. Something tells me Pierre McGuire would suit these jerseys.

Just the colours get me. Just gross. Looks like something that you could buy in a used clothing store. Just no good. Kind n Play might like it. Looke ain't bad though.

Flames should have just went 80s. Or if you're going to pay homage to the Tigers, go full out.

It's bold at least.

Montreal have used all of their past jerseys during their centennial. No need to add another one or to use the old ones again...they took the 80's model. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

Meh... It's not good, but it's a lot better than the Edge monstrosities. They're only going to wear it once.

The Flames' vintage jersey is our 3rd jersey for this upcoming season (the one used in 6 games last year, unveiled last summer)
It's like if the Canucks played a heritage game in Vancouver Millionaire gear, like the Giants did:



Anyway at first I thought the jersey was hideous... but after looking a couple more times the only thing that bugs me is the white 'C'... should be red... possibly with white outline, IMO.

Honestly, those are better than any Flames jerseys since the early 90's.

1. What does this have to do with the Canucks' logo?

2. Does anyone still think it's acceptable to say "retard" on a public forum? (It would be "retarded" by the way...)

4) Your team wore the worst thing to ever touch the ice. But whatever makes you feel good.
Calgary Flames hockey past dies with Atlanta - hence the name. The jersey's suck. The jersey is bad solely because in the 1980s EVERYONE who was alive wore something ugly as sin. Do you remember the 80s? The Canucks flying V as ugly as it was was no more ugly than any other item of clothing or style in it's day. There is absolutely NO excuse for this jersey with all the history of ugly sports jerseys we have already endured.

Canucks fan: "We won the division! Calgary sucks!"

Flames fan: "Pfft. At least Calgary has a cup."

Oilers fan: "Oilers have five cups."

Flames fan: "Stop living in the past."

It's a vicious cycle.

And on a related note, Calgary tosses their hat into the "Jersey Abortion" ring. Well done.
