No More Blue Jerseys

Seriously. If I'm on the Penguins right now, I'm never putting that jersey on. It has seriously bad juju.

I would love it if they just cancel the rest of those alt jersey dates for the rest of the year.


In case you can't tell, I'm superstitious. But 2 concussions to our best 2 players in the handful of games we've worn them. I don't want to see them ever again.

Anyone else agree?

I think superstitions are complete crap and people who believe them should be mocked accordingly. But I also think the jerseys are really ugly so I'm on board

Forget superstitions, they just look like trash. Any and all blue should be kept away from the Penguins' uniforms henceforth.

Superstitions are silly.

Two injuries, one of which we don't know the severity of, out of 16 games spread across 26 months - in a jersey we have a 11-5 record in...yeah.

Yeah.

I get not liking them because of the way they look, but 'bad juju'...



They're getting changed next season anyway.

Common man... superstitions can be FUN sometimes. I say we find our catharsis in the hatred of the blue striped pieces of ****. "Those jerseys aren't like us... they're different! They don't deserve the rights other jerseys have."

Yeah I'm not all about superstitions( absolutely don't mind people that have them..see nothing wrong with it) but the blues gotta go. Like I said, they were cool when they came out. Everybody was buying them....it was different. Now it's old. No reason for them at all anymore. Pittsburgh is all about black and gold, keep it that way.

I demand a ruling on this from the authority of all things meat / Swanson. I think eating delicious foods can be fun, a lot like burning blue jerseys.

I think you are confusing satisfaction with fun. fun is for children and clowns.

To add fuel to the superstition fire, did one of Letang's concussions come in a blue as well?

I loved the powder blues we wore in the first Winter Classic and as an alt for a while. Just a classic, unique, hockey jersey.

These current ones are a garbage mishmash/Frankenstein of a bunch of elements that were never used together and for good reason. Just terrible. I'd like to see a white version of the original powder blues.

i don't think letang's happened in blue. implying that it did helps my anti-blue agenda though...

Yeah and that one completely eludes me, but we'll go ahead and say it was in the blues until proven otherwise.

Exactly.

I liked the original baby blues, but they got played out. Never liked these jerseys (though I like the super old school logo).

It is time for the black and yellows. Please don't let the Crosby/Malkin era go by without black and yellow!

I love the current blue jerseys. They are so unique. The navy and light blue look damn good.


Any rumors on the new third jerseys next year?
