Imo I think the black symbolizes the team the best and it just looks so sharp.

Cant wait for a new black home jersey, but when will it come?

Back in Black

I saw a concept jersey on one of the fan boards (700 Level?) last week, but I can't find it now. Anywho, please be advised that the organization usually reveals a third jersey during the "Black Friday" game the day after Thanksgiving (U.S.A). My guess is that they will probably reveal the new third black jersey either next year (since they are supposed to be revealing the Winter Classic jersey on Nov. 25th this year) or the year after. By then Addidas will most likely have taken over production (say goodbye to the Reebok wordmark). BTW the NFL will be wearing Nike jerseys in 2012-13.

their current home jerseys with the orange being black and the white being orange would be awesome IMO.

I wouldn't mind some black being added to either of our current jerseys, but black thirds are incredibly boring and extremely commonplace throughout the league.

I believe there are some statistics that show teams wearing black get penalized at a slightly higher level. Makes sense, we are trained from childhood to think "black is BAD."

I agree that there are too many teams who have introduced black third jerseys, but if there are a handful of teams who are suitable for a black jersey, the Flyers surely fall into that category.

Teams like the Ducks, Hurricanes, Senators, Coyotes, Stars, Kings and soon enough the Islanders have no business bringing in a black jersey.

In a perfect world it should be reserved for teams like the Flyers, Bruins and Penguins

If they look like the original black ones I'd be happy. My favorite jersey I ever had was a black John LeClair jersey.

Agree. Black was a passing fad, the Flyers are orange and always should be.

My daughter brought me a blank black jersey years ago. I finally got around to getting in customized. Can't wait to get it back. I to thought the black jerseys looked sharp.

So if black is disliked, and Orange is already in use, anyone have any ideas for a good third?

In the extreme minority here, but I'd love the old Edge unis back...I can't stand these new ones. The black ones were so sleek with the orange accent. Now I wear a new one and I look like a giant cheeto.
