Wat Happened To Da Classic Orange Jerseyz?

Why did the Flyers get rid of da Classic Orange Jerseyz in favor of the Black ones with look bland to me and those Alternates dont look as da Classic ones . Da Orange got more out of the Flyer logo than the Black:

No worries, just having a little fun.

Honestly though, I'd like to see the real orange jerseys make a comeback. I truly don't mind the current orange ones either. Maybe we should be like the New Jersey Nets and have 5 different jerseys.

I'd say most Flyers' fans prefer the orange jerseys to the black. The Flyers eventually went to a modified and modernized orange third jersey, which they used the past few seasons. I prefer the orange you have posted even to the current edition but certainly the current orange is vastly better than the black jersey.

The black jerseys are totally lame.

Bring back the old orange ones.

THE FLYERS WEAR ORANGE.

The only flyers jersey i own is the classic orange.


Best jerseys theyve ever had. I still do not understand why they got rid of them for the generic black... Perhaps the new uniforms will feature this again

... the Flyers haven't worn the old orange jersey for years now, it wasn't just last season that the team got rid of them. The new third jerseys replaced the old orange ones.

The current black jerseys started with the 1997-98 season and the Flyers wore three jerseys, including the former orange, through the 2000-01 season.

The next season, 2001-02, the Flyers eliminated the orange and had just two jerseys one white and one black.

Starting with the 2002-03 season, the Flyers went back to three jerseys, the white, the black and the current orange.

I'd love to see the old orange jerseys come back. I never liked the black jerseys much at all. Hell, I'd love for them to wear the old away jerseys from the 70's as a throwback, those would be sweet.

Am I the only one who loves the black jerseys??? I think it made the team look so freakin' intimidating. For the most part, I don't really love the old orange jerseys, but I must admit I like the new orange ones much better in person than I did when I saw them on TV.

Yes.

In a moment of seriousness, however, when teams like the Raiders were successful we heard about the silver and black but when they struggled on field, eh, the colors became a non-issue. Same with the Flyers, in a polar opposite kind of way. They were intimidating in a not so intimidating color, orange, for many years. The point being: the player inside the jersey, not the jersey, defines intimidation.

The black was bland. It needed a bit more orange, a bit more zest. Not a bad idea for what I would have used as a third, on special occasions, even to invoke the intimidation in which you speak, but Audrey Hepburn looked great in black; Mike York not so much.

To be honest I think they should get rid of the white jerseys. Talk about bland, the team colors are Orange and Black, the jersey's should reflect that.

I just googled 'Bobby Clarke' those jerseys were OK, but if we win cups when we wear those jerseys, I'm all for the switch back to them.

I agree, it was starting to get used too much, but I do like it as a third. As for Peppermint Fatty, he better never wear orange, white and black again!!

orange is back next season is the word that i've read... two jerseys (no third... clearly to push sales of the third when they bring it in a few years from now) and they'll be orange and white.

I'm not sure if the NHL mandates white jerseys (what used to be the home jersey) since every team has one. The Kings were the last team I recall which didn't have a white jersey.

i'm pretty sure they've mandated whites... which makes sense, because double dark isn't a good situation.
