It's ugly like I said, but some of you guys are going off the deep end here. Not unexpected for HF, but still.

Holy **** lol, it's a 3rd jersey.

It looks a lot like the old Kings jerseys.

The viral reveal is kinda cool, but there's got to be a payoff at the end. That jersey is an embarassment.

It seems that a lot of fans are taking the jersey's *ahem* unique....design a little too seriously. It's only a third jersey, so it's not like they'll be wearing them every night.

Tbh, i don't see the appeal of a third jersey at all. I used to love them when t he buffaslug was our main and the retro was their third. It gave the team a look of dignity

The reality is, unless your teams main jersey is just garbage, what does a third really bring to the table? Typically, abject misery and disappoint

Every 3rd jersey in the league is just a money grab by the teams.

That's it. There's no other reason for them to exist. All you need is a white home jersey and a dark away jersey.

No reason to get all worked up over it.

But don't you think it's wiser to create a sweater that fans will actually purchase in large numbers? Or do you believe this will be a big seller?

Not much of a fan... the gold on front and blue on back looks as bad as I would've guessed. The grey sleeves make no sense. The random grey lines on the back look weird. There isn't really anything I like about it.

The worst part will be the Asian ripoffs people will wear that will make them look even worse.

I'd love it (and i think a lot of other fans would too) if they would go back to white homes and dark aways. That would be great.

I agree with the entirety of your post.

The sad thing is that I think fans will still buy these jerseys. Even if they don't like them, most fans will buy whatever is put out.

Will it be as successful of a money grab as when the current sabres main jersey was the third? No, not likely. Will it still bring in a decent amount of extra revenue? I will be shocked if it doesn't.

Of course they will be a big seller. Every Sabres jersey is a big seller. The slug is despised here, and yet broke records when it went on sale.

This jersey should corner the 10-14 year old market.

Sorry if this has been posted in here already, but this was in the Down Goes Brown update and I laughed hysterically at it:

"Buffalo Sabres - A flock of angry crows recently descended on the front office and plucked out the eyeballs of everyone who was in charge of approving the team's new jersey design, apparently."

I bought a Slug jersey, for two reasons:

1) I was thrilled with the return of blue-and-gold after too many years of red-and-black (which I felt were never really Sabres colors).

2) It was the last new Sabres jersey you could buy in the old format, before the league-wide switchover to the Reebok Edge jerseys (which I still like much less than the old ones).

Doesn't matter, it's part of the public face of the team, and the whole slow reveal, pro wrestling theatrics of the unveil, and finally the jersey itself made us a laughingstock.

Does stuff like that matter when you're trying to be a "place people want to play" - absolutely it does.

And now on top of that, the president of the team won't comment on it.

May have just made the list for worst jersey ever. Do the new helmets have little propellers on them too.

I'd really love to know if anyone involved with OKing this new third jersey really thought this was an improvement over the previous third jersey.

This doesn't make a difference with regards to the team on the ice. But, it does have me questioning whether the upper management really has any clue about what their fanbase wants.

Sabres Clean Third

This is probably too simple so it still looks like a practice jersey but, I cleaned it up a bit

I find it pretty humorous how up in arms some people will get over something like a 3rd jersey.

That said, I am also pretty stumped by how this jersey made it as a final design. I mean, for a professional sports team branding is kind of a big deal. You'd think that at some point there were alternative designs on the table without the very weird grey cuff links right? And if there ever was, how did those gray sleeves ever make it through to the final cut?

There are many things I wouldn't personally go with in this design, but I can see why it happened, but the grey bottom parts of the arms makes no sense to me. I just can't understand why they would do it.

It is mind-blowing how much better your photo-ship version looks. Absolutely crazy how much a difference getting rid of the gray and a few other tweaks can make. Wow.

haha great job. that jersey is 1000% better and if you showed 1000 people your version and the Sabres version I am absolutely sure your version would be preferred by at least 70% - i'd say 99% but I realize I'm older and god knows what kids and teenagers like these days.
