Checkers to get New Uniforms

http://www.gocheckers.com/news/check...rticle_id=1569

The Checkers will unveil new home and road uniforms at a gathering at the teamís offices on Wednesday, June 12, at 1 p.m. Fans are invited to the event and snacks will be provided following the unveiling. The Checkersí offices are located on the fourth floor of the EpiCentre (210 E. Trade St, Suite E480) in Uptown Charlotte.

A pre-sale of new Checkers jerseys will begin June 30, with adult jerseys priced at $120 and youth at $99. Personalization will also be available and jerseys will be delivered the last week of September.

WTF, unveiling at 1pm on a Wednesday. Who the hell comes up with this?

Do this on a Saturday evening when people can actually go.

Didn't the Hurricanes do it at 12 on a Tuesday?

Regardless, I'm sure this will just be the same layout as Carolina's but with the Checkers' logo slapped on there instead.

I hope they shrink the f'ing logo a bit, the old was way over sized and rubbed my nipples too much.

Maybe they'll copy the Canes jerseys and it'll be so high it won't rub against your nipples at all.

Yeah pretty much. Maybe a slight tweak in the logo to make it somewhat interesting.

It's good to see that Chad retains a smile even after having let him go. Wouldn't mind seeing an actual checkered jersey similar to Croatia's.

Charlotte has done miserably awful with checkered jerseys in the past. I submit for your (dis)approval:

Checkered jerseys only look good on jockeys.

I wish the Hurricanes had a Nascar jersey night.

Here they are:


They made the bottom white strip on the home jersey black, kept the shoulder logos, and added white laces on the away.

EDIT: They also have a video: http://vimeo.com/68170600

Meant to say those are differences between those and the "New Storm" sweaters.

Amazing what that one black stripe on the home jersey does.

Not entirely sure but I think I prefer those jerseys over our jerseys because of the black.

I actually prefer the double white to one white and one black. I tried to use paint to create the same look after our new ones were released, but it still didn't look right. Could just be my terrible paint skills though

I don't really like the black and white lines on the home. I think ours and the checkers jerseys would look best with double black lines.

That's the problem with black on red though, you need a white or silver transitioning color with it, or it just doesn't "pop" as well. It almost looks like black tape on the socks.

I think they look pretty good. Close enough to draw a parallel with the Canes, but not a direct copycat.
