The main point I was trying to convey is when you are talking about ART, which is what clothing, and logos are, it is up to the viewer to determine what is ugly and what isn't. You can't really make a statement like that is the ugliest thing and be correct. You can say that is the ugliest thing I'VE SEEN, and be valid.

Bottom line is, did True North make more of THEIR target demo happy with the logo than unhappy. I would say a wholehearted yes. In that case, they did just what they wanted to do.

Seeing the concept jerseys is definitely helping me grow to really like the logo. I do wish though the team name was incorporated into the main logo. I do believe that the logo in it's current state won't be the same one we see 10 years from now. Maybe even 5 years from now. Unless they win a stanley cup therefore making the logo in it's current state synonymous with the championship team in winnipeg, the logo will evolve in time.

The all-black thing was a fad that I'm glad we did not take part in. None of those jerseys in your example really pop off the screen like, say, the New York Rangers, Montréal Canadiens or the orange Philadelphia Flyers jerseys do. Black is boring as a primary, in my opinion, of course. Anyways, it's not going to happen for the Jets this year and for that I am thankful. Hopefully, we never have a predominantly black jersey.

A fad? Tell that to the Stars and the Kings. I don't believe they got that memo

At the moment these teams have a black jersey in some form:

ANA
LAK
SJS
DAL
CAR
TBL
CAL
PHO
PHI
PIT
BOS

Either way, the point I am struggling to make is, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the proof is in how many teams have gone black. It is a classic look, makes the colors on the jersey pop.

In any case, I have dragged this thread hopelessly OT for which I apologise, as the Jets won't be using black at least this year.

My two cents: I hate black jerseys and I hope the jets don't go in that direction ever.

I love the LA jerseys, Boston's as well. Philly's all but done away with the black alternates.

This was on icethetics, I really liked it. The homes are a little plain, but the away jersey is ace.

Not as good as those other whites, which seem to get thumbs up from everyone.

I HATE those shoulder stripes that go all the way down the arm.

The more time passes, the more I come to accept the new brand. The primary and secondary crests, as well as the wordmark, is growing on me. I’m really liking a number of proposals here, and am confident that I will love the new sweaters.

I agree, I really don't like the designs that have the solid color down the arm.

I know this shouldn't matter, but if there was any need for further evidence that the majority of Oiler fans on this site are complete homers, take a read of some of the responses regarding the logo on their board.

Totally classless.

That board used to be so awesome. Then 2006 happened and it hasn't been the same since.

Meh, they're entitled to their opinions on their own board.

I like a lot of logos in the NHL and I dislike a lot as well, no big deal. Initially I was not a fan of the new logo but it has been growing on me with these uniform designs.

Can't please em all I guess.

Awful uppity for a team that used to wear glorified practice jerseys...

An interesting read. I'm surprised by how angry some of them are over it. It's one thing for some of the team's own fans to not like the logo, but people who aren't even fans getting their panties in a twist? lol. They can think whatever they want though.

I absolutely agree with ya Lynk. I just don't get why people have to be such db's about it.

Man, I really like the logo and the mock ups of the jerseys also look sick. If I were a Jets fan I would be pumped!

Since we're getting awful close to the max, might as well start up a new thread.
