    weren't we supposed to be seeing goalies wearing different jerseys from the rest of the players...? first they said they'd have them from the onset; then they said it'd be a couple weeks because of production delays/color matching.
    so... 4 months and about 53 games later, goalies are still in regular uniform. what's the dealio?

    i hope to hell not. the different color jersey for the goalies is the most pointless gimmick there is. if someone has that much of a problem figuring out which player is the goalie then they've got bigger issues to deal with.

    They ran into problems making them and then when the goalies tried them out they hated them so they went back and reworked it based on there recommendations and I haven't heard anything about them since.

    I wondered what that position was called..... :D

    What Omar the Tent Maker ran short?

    Giving goalies a different color jersey than the rest of the team helps to further along the argument of some folks that hockey is "soccer on ice". I can understand why they do it in soccer, as the goalie isn't wearing a suit of armor like in hockey.
