Who makes these decisions?

Who looks at these relative to the rest of the NHL and goes "yes, that's what I want! Fantastic!"

Yeah on the "Joke-----------Professional" spectrum, we've been lead to believe they've been taking strides to make this a legitimate organization that take is taken seriously. Simple, professional, classic. That's all we need, that's what the Knox family left us with.

Do we have too many people pulling in too many directions now that there's a healthy budget? This seems so disorganized.

Good lord these are horrendous. I never thought I'd say it but:

The Sabres have made a jersey worse than the slug

Worst jersey in franchise history, by far.

I don't love them.

I don't hate them.

They're pretty odd that's for sure. Also, probably not the best jersey to wear in another team's building as it will certainly only attract more chirps.

All that being said, They'll grow on me over time and I'm sure I'll be rockin one at FNC by the new year.

Agreed. I hope these sell terribly.

Interesting note: "Sabres" is trending on twitter right now.. For all the wrong reasons.

It's not official. Maybe it's a prank.

Everything about it is amateur.

The jersey itself is by far the worst currently in the league and has to be right up there when it comes to the worst of all time.
I get that they wanted to do something different, but they completely **** the bed when it came to the design.
The grey, the striping on the arms that stops in the middle for no reason yet continues into the grey portion of the arm, the multiple fonts that suck..

The unveiling of it made them look like more of a joke, though.
It took longer to unveil this abomination than it took multiple teams to unveil completely new home/away sets.
Other teams teased for a couple weeks, some only a few days, and actually set an end date.
This took months, never had an end date, and the final unveil was cheesy and forced.
They completely failed at trying to be funny.
They never even published an official press release with a gallery or anything either, but that should come as no surprise, as they are horrible at sharing information with fans.

Most hate it.

Considering they took like 9 years to unveil it, they'd look even more moronic if they didn't use it after all that stupid build up.

ESPN just tweeted to semi-mock the two colors of yellow. Not a good sign when they notice something hockey-related...

Looks good to me IMO. I'm sure they will look even better on the ice.

looks like puke

Haven't been on these boards since I diss'd the Sacco hire and have been recovering from bicep tendon reattach surgery (...ouch...) but the Weber mustard special made me want to vent.

These are bad, ugly and amateurish in design and execution. Very disappointed because something really cool could have come from this (gold colored third).

It's incomprehensible that the same organization that does something as well as Beyond Blue and Gold can manage to mess up their 3rd uni so bad.

Hard to believe that President Ted thinks these are good enough to move forward with.

I see what the front office is doing:

They are putting something worse on the ice than the team itself, so the players will look good by comparison

They are pretty ugly but they are NOT even close to buffaslug bad.
