Is there any way for our voices to be heard? At all?

I don't generally like the 'lol', but in this case since I did, I will.

Lol. I googled Sabres to get to the website quickly to verify no mention of the Sabres new jersey.

First four results (news section):

Steve Ott unveils Sabres' new third jersey and it's awful
CBSSports.com ‎- 1 day ago

The wait for the Sabres' gold third jersey to be revealed is finally over. Maybe they should go put it right back in the closet.

Just how horrible are the Buffalo Sabres' new third jerseys?

Also on facebook they took their status down and then reposted it within a half hour again and it still generated the same amount of negative feedback. I think they are firmly getting the message lol

The casual Sabres fan is a sucker though. I'm sure they will mint a pretty penny with those beauties, just like they did with the slug...

How about sending these to some third world country to help clothe the natives ?

Then they can get focused on a real jersey....And they will have more fans on another part of Earth....SABRES NATION at some Middle-African tribe ! Awwww Yaaaaaa !!!

I hope that yellow-blue-gray smear never sees the light of day, either on the ice or even in the Sabres' merchandise store. If it does, then I hope that fans at home games boo anyone that dares wear this new jersey. Even it's a kid wearing it, boo both the kid and the kid's parents all game until the jersey comes off. Booing and beer showers to any fan who dares to wear it to an away game.

Thats taking it a little too far, I would never boo fans of the team I cheer for over a 3rd jersey. Best idea is to just not buy one.

An interesting look on how a new jersey gets created.

Why couldn't the Sabres 3rd look as nice as the new Minnesota white jersey?

What I dislike & solutions:
1. Grey striping on sleeves. Solution: remove completely.
2. Grey cuffs. Solution: Replace with Navy, or remove completely.
3. Font of "Buffalo" by collar. Solution: Use pseudo-script like on the 40th anniv. 3rds.
4. Navy on front of sweater under collar. Solution: Use Navy only for back of sweater and sleeves. Make sleeves true Raglan-style, and the yellow-gold for all of the front panel.

What I like:
5. Back of sweater is passable.

What I wonder:
6. Would have looked better using traditional Sabre royal blue instead of navy.
7. Did they simply cut up a Preds jersey and re-assemble it, Tangram-style?
8. This design is the best they could come up with?
9. Did they pay someone for this design?
10. We're we given the thumbnail teaser pics for 2 months as a kind of inoculation tolerance build-up for the full-sweater reveal?

Very interesting article. Thanks for posting.

I have always really liked the wild's jersey. Their new white jersey is a real improvement on an already excellent jersey.
