Can't be worse than the new team Canada jersey or the new Buffalo alternate, can it?

Even with the asymmetric stripe? I could actually live with the leaves and lacing if the strip was balanced on both sides.

I like the horsehead

I doubt we get a new alternate logo, I just hope the new 3rd is black

I would love if the switch was to wear the old 80s whites as the new alternate. Then they could wear them on the road sometimes too

I think that is just an illusion caused by the angle the photo was taken at. I am sure the stripe is even on both sides.

Except the sleeve. Where one sleeve is striped and the other is not.

The alternate jerseys have been leaked!



Glad they didn't go with the ugly horse head jerseys

I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked that logo. I'd love to get one of the old black alternates someday.

I wasn't a fan but thought it looked okay as a shoulder patch. As a main logo it was hideous. I cringed every single time we wore them.

Those 2 aren't even close to the same level of bad.

Think maybe it could involve the flood at some capacity? Like even just something about the city, like a white stetson. or something. I'm thinking out loud here fellas, so take er easy on me haha.

I think I am with the boys who liked the horsehead. I was a huge fan, partly because I was like 6 when it came out and I originally thought it was a dragon

I was never a fan of the horse head but there's gotta be a way to improve it and make it better. I might whip out the pencil later and see if I can't modernize it a bit.

If there is going to be a new logo, and it is similar to the horse head, something ponyta-esque would look fantastic


Obviously not so cartoonish but you get the point

So basically like the Stamps logo but with flames

I thought the front facing horse head was unique, just done horribly wrong. Most horse logos are side views or slightly turned portraits. I whipped up a quick modernized version that pays tribute to the original logo but is less cartoony and complicated. Gonna toss it on a jersey tomorrow to see what it looks like, if it's not a complete disaster I'll throw it up here.

Even if it is a complete disaster, throw it up!

Although the front-facing aspect isn't the norm for horse logos, I think the major issues were the cheesy nostril flames and the color/shading scheme. You could still do a front-facing logo that doesn't look stupid, but it takes more effort, I think.
