This sounds horrible, especially if it's a homage to the black-and-red "Buffalo Buffaloes" Angry Goat Head jersey.



They need to go back to these and keep their current 3rds. I'm worried that, if true, we're going to top the Islanders' terrible third and the buffaslug jersey in one go.

No sense in freaking out yet.


But good to know Ted Black is following in the Larry Quinn mold on the jersey thing. Hey, we have to pay for Leino somehow!

The current jerseys are pretty close to those, of course adding the hideous gray underarm pit-stain area patch and some more stripes/piping. It'd be nice to go back to the "originals" though. I like just the blue, gold, and white colors, as well as the blyes being a bit lighter.

Black was pretty adamant in a few interviews last spring and this fall that the team had no plans to change any of the jerseys - he only said that the 3rd jersey may go away altogether with no replacement but he was pretty clear in pointing out that the franchise has had already a lot of jersey design changes. It sounded like Pegula wants to stay with the current ones.

I don't believe there's anything to this rumor.

Maybe, when the franchise hits its 50th anniversary, they will toss the current ones and truly go retro back to the original ones from the 70s. One can hope

if they did a new third I would like to see a blue and gold version of the goathead, for the 10 years they wore it so much happen in the franchise, two ownership changes (3 if you count when the Knox brothers stopped being part owners), a Stanley cup run, a eastern conference final run, the bankruptcy. With that much happening in that short amount of time you have to pay some respect after enough time passes. Sort of like even though he did not leave on the best of terms Hasek's number is being retired immediately after he hangs up the pads for good.

and also lets be honest compared to the slug the goathead wasn't that bad

Edit: I didn't make this I found this and to be honest I like it better than the current thirds

Black Sabres 90s-2006 jerseys were my favorite.

So yeah, go for it.

Oh, and. Haters!

Isn't this just that lame reebok black ice jersey that all the teams did? Looks awful.

The 40th year anniversary jerseys have completely grown on me. If you look through the stands at any game, about half of the jersey wearing crowd seems to be sporting those things. It'll be weird if they ditch it after 1 year.

The pictured jersey isn't supposed to be the actual design, but the jersey will supposedly have similar characteristics.

HAHAHA, man, it would help if I read even 3 words of the original post instead of just clicking the link to look at the picture.

YES it is, If you read the caption of the jersey, they're the ones that they are already selling.

I wouldn't mind seeing even a slightly modified goathead. Something kinda like this (excuse the quick photoshop). Only real problem I have with it is the part on the left, I wouldn't know how to balance the logo any better without just having a normal cutoff line.





Edit: Maybe something like this? (Again, quick photoshop)

Is the suggestion box at Sabres.com still alive?

If so, we should flood it with "Just say NO to a black based 3rd jersey".

I agree, but silver/black have been Kings colors before, most notably in the Gretzky years. We've never had black/blue/gold--presumably what ours would look like--as a color scheme.

I'm in this crowd. Personally, I like the royal blues.

I don't like this. The have been selling these "Obsidian" jerseys for a while and there is a reason why people dont buy them, they are hideous.

Hope this doesnt happen.

Is this being floated as a way of testing the reaction of the fan base?

Hate to be so suspicious. (No, I don't.)

If I hadn't heard Terry say he didn't want to raise ticket prices, then do it over the summer, I would feel better about Ted's alleged assurance that there wouldn't be any more tinkering with the jersey.

As incredible as ANOTHER new look sounds, I'd advise fans to grab their wallets. And get their credit cards out.

It's a bit of a stretch, but I could see them wearing that jersey....in practice.
