While I loved the original blue and golds best, I wasn't that upset with the black and red design - the red 3rd jersey with the butterknives was far worse.

For as many people that dislike the black/red era because of the Rigas / bankruptcy / 2001-04 seasons, there are just as many - if not more - positive memories when the team wore those jerseys (the '96-'97 Nolan "hardest working team in hockey" / the '98, '99 and '06 playoff runs). The blue and gold era, for all of the cherished history tied to the start of the franchise and great players to wear that jersey, also saw a lot of mediocre teams that got bounced in the 1st round for 10 consecutive years, not to mention a team that finished dead last overall in the NHL. It seems like whichever memories of experiences the team had are strongest (be it positive or negative) is what influences hating one design over the other.

Boom.
Eliminating the gray armpit stains should be the first change to the current design if there is going to be one.

I wouldn't worry about those charcoal designs ever happening - the whole purpose of branding and logo / color designs is for marketing an identity. Any team that would adopt a monochromatic scheme like that charcoal one would render their jerseys as invisible both to TV viewers as well as fans in the arenas seated higher than the 5th row up. Players would appear to be just charcoal blurs.

Personally, I grew up with the goathead jerseys, and I find the sets that preceded them to be the better look. First off, they convey the name of the team better. They held that name-the-team contest because they were trying to avoid the more obvious names like "Buffalo Bisons". It was dumb to remove all instances of actual sabres in the team logo, especially with that in mind.

Another thing is, the goathead jersey is simply way too 90's. Angry animal mascot with 'tude, the black and red color scheme that was popular at the time; it's just not timeless when taken as a whole. It's better left in the era that it was designed for, imo.

Agreed. Then they should remove the piping and change the blue to a brighter, less drab shade. The Oilers and even the Islanders figured out that those elements are just ugly, and fixed their jerseys accordingly.

Well, you can officially say goodbye to the current Sabres' alt:

Alternate blue jerseys with "Buffalo" script on the front were retired tonight. Won't be worn again. The way this one ended, just as well.

Glad our baseball 3rd jersey is gone...loved the colors but not the script....

I'm more old school and have absolutely no desire in ever seeing the black and red jerseys again even as a 3rd jersey....I also think the red third jersey with the puck logo is one of the worst all time jerseys in NHL history...Please don't bring it back Sabres....

If they wanted to bring something back from the black/red era, I would be OK with the demonic goathead but in blue and gold w/ maybe some silver in there as well.....

If anyone sees an "official" release by the Sabres saying the 3rds are no longer going to be worn, please post it. Until then, with all due respect, I'll believe it when I see it. But that's just me.

What if they took the original jerseys that they basically switched back to this season, and used an actual gold instead of the yellow that they claim as gold, and keep it like that, or even use that color scheme and put the "goat face" on it?

I'm just thinking of random ideas, and watching Foligno the other night wearing the gold helmet made me think a simple color scheme like that might be cool.

I'm thinking a 3rd jersey with either gold/yellow as the main color might be cool

I could get behind a blue and gold AGH or this:


That's about as far afield as I go.

Wow, hate the news of the third going away. It's far and away my favourite of the current three, guess it might be time to finally invest in one of the home or away ones.

I like the stains and piping, not sure why, think its a cool mix of modern and heritage, they could go a bit lighter on the blue bit for the home and away I like them more navy than royal and think our third should be royal

Why would you buy a jersey you don't love? What is so bad about keeping and wearing the 3rds until another Sabres jersey comes along (and it eventually will) that you like just as much, if not more than those 3rds?

Unless you're one of those fans that MUST have the latest, most current jersey to be cool.

I guess I just can't relate

I haven't bought a Sabres jersey since the first year the real authentic Black goat head jerseys were available to purchase. And I never wear it

I'm more of a hat guy, I get a new Sabres hat once a year. But mainly because I wear the hell out of it for 365 days.

It's probably psychologically reassuring for fans to see the stains and envision that the perceived sweat under the armpits means the team is always working hard for 60 minutes a night!

Gary bettman just texdidd me and said its the slug on the AGH black jersey and black/red scheme. Helmets will be blue, like they were that one off season of the off colored blues. He hates it but they agreed to it as a last thank you to Quinn.

Anyone else get that text? Or is g just fuxin with me? It sounds intriguing.

I think you've been conversing with the wrong Gary.

Alternate blue jerseys with "Buffalo" script on the front were retired tonight.
Won't be worn again. The way this one ended, just as well.

LS: Not a shocker - knew the jerseys would be retired at the end of the season after
the Sabres said that they were only going to wear the jerseys for six home games
(along with two away games - Ottawa on November 5 and Nashville on December 3)
down from thirteen (?) home games from the anniversary season. Then it became only
five home games as they decided for some reason to wear their regular blue jerseys
for the November 16 home game vs New Jersey.

LOL for Harrington saying in a way it was one of the reasons we lost - their only loss
this season wearing that jersey was last night. (I think they even had a good record
last season in the jersey too) In a weird twist - they even lost that home game vs
New Jersey when they decided to not wear the jerseys. Would we have won that
game if we had wore it? Who knows!

Oh well, I enjoyed wearing the jersey - much better than wearing that slug one!
Guess I'll have a retirement ceremony for it later today - LOL! Thing that sucks
the player whose "Buffalo" jersey I have - Tyler Myers - didn't even get the chance
to wear the jersey one last time. Would have been nice if I could have wore that
jersey one last time with the player who I have it of played in the game! Looks
like during the off season, I'll have to replace it with a Myers regular blue jersey.
GO SABRES!
