glad to see the knicks are around in some way shape or form.

Actually, the Knicks were supposed to be eliminating black in their uni's this season...you know, had there been a season.

Even the Mets are phasing out the black jerseys. Blue alts will be worn a few times next year & take over as the full time 3rd in 2013. It's just a phase in sports jerseys that is thankfully ending.

At least I'm confident in saying that these things won't sell & they'll be gone within 2 years if not sooner.

Yeah. I would much prefer that to this crap. It's just terrible.


I really wish we would have done an orange third jersey like last time. Most people have a problem with the colors, and as I've stated I don't. But I'd prefer something orange.

Definitely not looking forward to seeing these jersey's on the ice. They are uglier than the girl you wouldn't want to introduce to your friends.

How about a third 30 goal scorer instead of a jersey

30 goal scorer = $2,000,000
New, exciting pumpkin cloth = $179.99
MUUUUCH BETTER VALUE!

At least it's just an alternate. Not like we have to look at them 82 times. I also think they would look better as a white/ cream off white type color instead of black

Anyone 13 and under will be seen wearing it around the coliseum I think.

It looks like a cheap knockoff they'd sell in the bargain bin at Modell's. I still have my doubts that it's the final version. I think the fact that's it's so amatuerish, I find it hard to believe. I keep saying to myself, "that can't be it!".

Coming from the organization that gave us the Fisherman & Water Wings, this awful jersey makes all too much sense.

I gladly would have bought an orange version of the current jersey. Oh well, I'll keep my rupees

Am I the one who would actually love if they made the fisherman jersey in some variation as the third jersey?

I Would even pre-order it

I actually liked everything about the fisherman jersey, except the fishermen. The lighthouse patch was pretty cool and I liked the way they used waves to replace the stripes. The blue and teal colors was a nice look too. Just no fisherman!!!

That would be too logical for this organization. A jersey that's simple, uses the current colors, and if they must, a modest logo change.....that's just too much to ask for.

Wang thinks he can reinvent the hockey wheel by turning it into a square.

Because it would mean the Islanders would actually make money from the Sales of that jersey....Islanders do not like making money. I would buy that jersey in a heartbeat

I have been trying to buy one since they unveiled the jerseys before last season. I even contacted the Isles and they kept giving me different dates that they would be available but it never happened. I just don't understand why?

I also like the Fisherman Lighthouse logo used on that jersey that someone made. I couldn't find it.

Hate to tell you but it's common knowledge that black gives you the appearance of being more slender, lol!

Ugh, it really is a piss poor jersey. I wish they would do something creative like Nashville. They have a lot of little built in things to their jersey that capture the essence of music city.

Any design i've seen throughout these boards is better than this.

As far as Tampa's jersey I think it's awesome.. you are talking about their new home and away right. I think they are sleek. This black with the block letterings really is like a basketball jersey and really just looks lazy, lol.
