Ideas for a Flyers' alternate jersey?

I know most of you will probably disagree, but I think an alternate with at least some (if not all) Phillies/Sixers coloring would be pretty sick.

Or maybe just redo the black ones.

Any of you guys have any ideas on some cool alternates you wouldn't mind seeing the Flyers rock?

I love both of our jerseys right now. I don't even want a third. I just want the Flyers brass to stick to what we have.

However, knowing marketing, they should probably introduce a new 3rd jersey every year to keep jersey sales strong. I'd assume they will introduce black ones again in the new future.

If the Phillies ever introduced a new home jersey, I might riot. Also, the Eagles jerseys rock, they shouldnt change. The Union could do with changing their flesh gold away kits though. Even white would be a huge step up from the horrid gold aways.

I get the money aspect of things, but I wish more teams would stick with one proven design and just introduce different thirds.

Arsenal, for example, tweaks their jerseys like every year. It's ridiculous.

The Flyers colors are orange and black...by Phillies/Sixers coloring I'm assuming you mean red? I would projectile vomit if I ever saw red on a Flyers uniform. I'd actually be down to see a black jersey make a return, but only if it's late 90's-Eric Lindros era styling.

I don't mean a straight red jersey, just have some red/white/blue on it. idk I think it'd be all right but that's just my opinion

I don't think the team needs an alternate at all, and if there needs to be, I don't see a reason to make a new one rather than the black Reebok, or at least the black one from the early 2000s. I do like the 80s-90s jersey that's already been posted, but why have another orange jersey?

Anyway, using anything but orange, black and white would be completely retarded. These are the team colors, and any other color is not a team color. This was one of my main points of the Penguins using their Winter Classic jerseys as alternates, as well as the Canadiens alternate jerseys in their centennial season. If it's not your team colour, it's not your team color.

However, I've recently come across this in the depths of the internet:

There's also a number of other sports-logo amalgamations running around these days. Only saved this one though. The artist made a terrible mistake though. See if you can find it.

I imagine at some point they are going to bring back the crest with the silver in it from 2003-2004. The crest that went with the predominately orange jersey. Sorry I can't include a pic, I am at work.

You better not post that pic deliberately or I might just punch you in the thorax.

I will expect a punch in the thorax, as long as you don't stab me with a pen in the thorax. I am not a tracer, I am an inker. (I really hope you get that movie reference, or this will look about as retarded as Jody Shelley’s skating.)

Could one of you PS-geniuses edit a black outlining in the current jerseys? On the home jersey I mean around the white parts and vice-a-versa on the road jersey.
Would be interested in seing how this would look.


I actually wouldn't mind a black version of it.

black versions of our current orange jerseys would make a good alternate. that's about all i'd want to see. the flyers logo is one of the most iconic in sports and one of the few in the NHL to never be doctored from the original (save for those orange jerseys with the god awful chrome on the emblem...yuck). i love our current set and want it to stay that way for the foreseeable future.

Not what I meant. Artistic liberty in my opinion. What's missing is one of the most iconic features of Philadelphia.


In other news, is anybody else reminded of this when reading the first sentence in the OP?

lol...not quite what I had in mind. Now that I think about it, I guess I wouldn't want the Flyers to be one of those teams with douchey 3rd jerseys that don't have anything to do with the teams colors (See: Florida, Pittsburgh)

Couldn't see the image, so I reupped it for you:


But not really. It's usually other teams stealing designs from the Flyers. Not the other way around. E.g.:

i know, but maybe it's time for a change in the trend?
and the flyers wouldn't really be stealing the design. it's our design, the tigers just made the jersey black.

i've always wanted to see a flyers jersey in this color scheme, long before the tigers adopted it.
i think it'd be awesome to do a jersey in that color scheme, but maybe add a tie down just to set it apart from the other 2. ive always wanted to see a flyers jersey with a tie down as well.

i like that and as a jersey I'd buy it. or chnage the colour of the crest to orange or white... not sure what that would look like. You could take out the FLYERS going diagonally, and place a crest there... looks clean IMO.

Edit: Quickly done, I'm not a graphics guy - the orange is off i know... but you get the idea, it doesn't look awful and it doesn't look great

I wouldn't dismiss the concept of a black jersey as an alternative. However, the one in recent usage was too bland. A jersey with black as the primary color and more orange would be appropriate for special occasions (the day after Thanksgiving home game for instance). Something similar to the Alumni jerseys would be a start.
