That would be a start, but we need black in the color scheme. Nice to see some people like the new jerseys, I loathe them.

Well considering how few people bought the jerseys. Most jerseys you see in the crowd/on TV were the ones given away.

I'm more pissed they rushed things, then after realized they needed to add things but couldn't. They wanted victory stripes and even added the little (very very little) black to the jerseys around the number, with more promises of black coming.

But they did say they didn't add the black or stripes because they couldn't, but they would be coming (I doubt it).

It's not too late to fix something broken. It never is.

I can't find it now, but I remember them saying they wanted to add some black back into things, aside from the stupidity that is the black outline on the numbers.

I know they said they were going to add more black after the fans displeasure, but am quite certain it was going to be more than what they did around the numbers. They just weren't able to make the changes like the victory stripes and more black because of league rules.

And if that is the black you are referring to, we don't have black. It isn't in our color scheme at all. It's just the little they added after the complaints.

They haven't appeased me at all. I still won't wear the jersey they gave us. Sorry, I realize it's a broken record from me, but this is an addition to my rant. I wish I could find where they said they would have added more black and victory stripes if it wasn't too late, and would do so. I hope I didn't misread, because then I'm off. I'm still not happy with the ******** they gave us, but I'm in the wrong in my accusation of false promises.

Edit: I did find this from RawCharge- For those of you wondering, per the team, the victory stripes on #tblightning jersey are still possible down the road. Be patient.

So I guess there was no promise, and from my reading the stupid little black around the numbers was all they planned after the press release. Son of a *****.

How cool would it be to re-introduce the victory stripes in our 20th season?

I really your work - but put the new Lightning Logo on the shoulder from the 3rd jersey. I think it would fit better right now.

Yeah I think they are doing the new patches regardless, which are sweet. I cant take credit for the pic above, all I did was dump paint on it in mspaint.

new thirds please

I'd like to see these thirds for the foreseeable future, (with victory stripes of course) im tired of teams changing there thirds every few years. Although i for one would rather it read Lightning, to me Bolts is a little hokey but i could live with it; it is at the very least original.

can someone please tell me how to post an image into my reply?
Hm - would be cool if there would be a "more modern" Bolts scripting.

I like the rest of your proposal - would be cool (white shoulder patches would be better instead of this grey ones)

To post an image click on the button that looks like this

A little box will pop up and you can paste the link to your picture there

So it should look something like this and then when you hit submit post, the picture will show

Will the TBTF have any permanent improvements as a dirwct result of the GOP convention or is it all temporary? I heard this morning a new sound system was being put in, but again, is it permanent?

I imagine any improvements will happen during DNC conventions, but Republicans will take credit for them.

It will be interesting the impact the renovated USF Sun Dome has. I see Elton John is playing there, where he always played the ice palace before, plus the USF basketball will go back there I presume.

When we last saw the Tampa Bay Lightning's alternate uniforms, the blue-and-black ensemble that featured a blue, piped sweater with "BOLTS" scrawled across the front, its future was still to be determined. The Lightning organization hadn't made a decision on what would happen to the uniform or if it would be employed again.

A decision has been made though: The 3rd jersey lives on. Team Executive Vice President of Communications Bill Wickett said in an email on Monday that the team would indeed employ the uniform system again for 2012-13. Wickett expected the jersey to be used for "12-15 home games" this season. There will be one minor tweak to the uniform though; a more current shoulder patch will be employed. Last season's jersey continued to feature the Lightning's old (2007-2011) primary logo on its shoulders. It was a time issue that prevented making the change for last season.

Meh, could've lived without them. I'd rather have just a home and an away jersey. Or a black(-ish) third.
