Was there really a color unity push coming from the local pro teams? I don't remember that.
DBacks were world champions and didn't want to wear expansion team colors. Fair.
The Suns never changed colors.
Neither did the Cardinals.
It wasn't a group decision to all wear the same colors if that's what you mean. Except the Suns of course. It's all market research stuff. Sales numbers generally show that Red = $$$$$$$$$$.
The only thing that does better than red is apparently Black.
The Suns did change colors a little bit though. They seriously de-emphasized Purple which was their primary color back in the day. I see the orange way more often on their road jerseys and the current purple is almost blue.
I always preferred these
And the logo is SO much better than the current PHX ball thingy.
Don't shoot the messenger....I don't really care which jersey they wear as long as it says Phoenix or Arizona.
I guess I can't post a link to bleacher report .com ....I guess that is blocked for some reason...anyways there was an article on each teams worst logo...of course they listed the original Coyote logo...
ironic comment from the article....
An interesting note: the sweater this Coyote is wearing matches that of their new uniforms, except for the logo of course
Did any one else get one? My nephew grabbed noki's for $350.00 and is having it signed @ the team meet and greet coming up @ the end of the month. Some of the last ones to be claimed were way up there. A team signed ones was $1075.00 last i saw with Doan going for $800.00 plus.
When I went to Riga to see the Coyotes play an exhibition there before the Prague games, the team they played, Dinamo Riga, had these jerseys:
The bottom trim is the skyline of the city. If you get rid of the hideous D in the center, putting in a new Coyotes logo, and replace the skyline with a simple desert skyline) I think it could be a pretty cool jersey. Their colors are pretty close to ours too..
