Ducks going to orange and black?

I knew the Mighty Ducks were altering their name and colors but I was unaware of the switch to orange and black.

You should go Al Davis on them and sue the Ducks for stealing your colors.

Flyers should never have stopped wearing the great orange jerseys of the 70s.

What's with teams changing their colours, logos, names. Pick one and stick with it.

In this case, the new ownership wanted to separate itself from the ABC/Disney owned "Mighty Ducks."

To be fair, our colour is black now and we stole it off about a dozen others.

I want to go back to orange before other claim it.

Why did the Flyers change? Orange is by far the best color for them. I loved their Orange jerseys.

I think they opted to go with the black because at the time it was the road jersey. The orange is still in tact, though on a third jersey with a modernized logo. Of the two, I prefer the orange jersey that was replaced, the one used primarily in the 80s and into the 90s. Of the current three that are used, I would use the black as the third and as little as possible.

Too many teams use black as their primary colour. Carolina looks to similar to Detroit, Columbus reminds me to much of the Rangers

Like it was talked about on the main board, they are supposed keeping the design from their 3rd jersey and changing the colors/logo. I think thats why they opted to wear the 3rd jersey at home instead of the original road. keep away from that duck logo as much as possible!! haha

P.S. On a side note, I hate your guys "modernized" logo, what the hell is up with that thing.

P.P.S I'm a Pens fan, so I hate you regardless!!!

Maybe they want to be the Anahiem Daffy Ducks?

Perhaps the orange because they're in Orange county?
I think they could've chosen another color scheme to go with the duck theme...but, whatever.

Just so everyone knows, the Flyers lost all of their footing if they want to cause a tizzy over the Ducks using orange and black. The Flyers are no longer orange and black they are black, white and orange, and if they want to use their orange jerseys as their primary home jersey, it also has gray and silver in it. If the Ducks want to use orange and black there is nothing the Flyers can do to stop them

Yeah but didnt't the Bruins originally have the jerseys that were brown and yellow and then change? What exactly caused them to have a fit over it anyways?
