As a long time Sabres fan, I would hope that the rumor that the Sabres are moving to a black based 3rd jersey for the 2012-13 season is completely false.

First off, the black NY Islanders 3rd jerseys are hideous and I would hope that the Sabres never have anything that remotely resembles them.

Second, the Sabres true colors are Blue & Gold. Black is no within that color scheme.

Please stay true to the Sabres Blue and Gold tradition and either keep the current 3rd jersey or come up with a Blue & Gold based 3rd if you are going to come up with a different look.

Personally, I would like to see a 3rd jersey that is simply the original blue jersey (think the blue version of the jersey that he team wore at the Winter Classic), if you are going that route.

These jerseys look like someone sucked the soul right out of them, so I guess that's appropriate for this team.


Is it really to much to ask for like a 5 year freeze on jersey changes? It's completely unnecessary. Stick with what you've got for at least a few years before changing it up.

They keep putting out new jerseys, and we keep buying them. Like many, at first I didn't like the new 3rd jerseys because they look like baseball jerseys.

I'm obviously in the minority here, but those are ****ing hot.

This guy did a bunch of cool logo designs/jersey mock-ups a few years back. I think some of them should be considered if they are looking for an alternate.



Thats my favorite one.

If there's truth to the Black jersey. What would people think if they brought back the AGH jersey as a 3rd.

That's the only way I'd support another jersey change. I miss those.

Ive campaigned Ted Black on numerous occasions through the suggestion box and in person that id like to see the black and red back in some capacity, whether it be as an alternate jersey, or just merchandise to be made for sale just as the old blue and gold stuff currently is.

I do not like the black and red days at all. I live blue and gold, it was my high school colors as well. Please keep them. Those black jerseys look kind of good looking to me. However the 40th anniversary jersey is by far my favorite out of any jersey they have ever had. I love the blue they use in it, I bought one as soon as it came out. PLEASE keep it!



So old school looking yet so modern at the same time haha!

It's not like this guy just makes things up.
His sources are designers and suppliers.

I know. I regularly visit the site. But he has no solid source backing it up as truth.

Most of the teams he posted about are merely on a "i heard that maybe" basis.

Sabres FO needs to stop alienating and dividing its fan base by releasing jersey after jersey. Work on your on ice product first.

We could, you know, wait until there's something more concrete than an off-handed rumor before passing judgement.

Or not. Whatever floats your boat.

I hope you're aware that this particular picture is a chinese knock-off and isn't even close to the authentic one. The Buffalo and the Yellow stripes are massive

I say keep the 40th anniversary ones they're really cool and unique. But if they're gonna use another as an alternate, I vote this one.

Yeah that thing is hideous and I don't mind our current thirds. That is the easiet fake to spot at the arena because it looks so ridiculously out of proportion

Edit: I also don't think that this rumor is true because Ted and Terry have repeatedly stated that they do not want to be changing the uniforms anytime soon.
