    I think I'm going to be sick.

    One day people are going to look back at this "EVERY JERSEY IN SPORTS MUST HAVE BLACK ON IT!" phase as some sort of bad acid trip.

    It's bad enough all the jerseys will look like those ridiculous practice jerseys next season (I give it half a season, tops) but now this. :shakehead

    Shame on you Reebok and shame on you NHL. :teach:

    Ew. Is this supposed to be a 3rd jersey or is this gonna be the replacement?

    I like the jersey the way it is. Besides, I already spent $200 on the authentic jersey, I'm not going to get another one especially if it's ugly (which is what Illitch is hoping for, fans to buy the new jersey).

    Maybe it's just me, and I'm sure I'll get flamed, but you really shouldn't be quoting an article that you have to pay to read, especially reprinting the entire article. Yes, I know you copied it from the other site (I am also a member there) but it's not ethical to give for free what they expect you to pay for, no matter how you feel about the arrangement.
     
  6. and the jersey will have black player numbers under the white player name

    jesus christ...

    No black, unless on a third jersey.

    Or are they trying to mime the Ottawa Sen's look?

    I'm more traditionalist-minded, yet... funny is...
    :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :biglaugh:

    That Red Wings website uses A LOT of BLACK as the background and accent colour - and it looks darn cool.

    Ironic that complaints are directed there.

    They should be a 3rd jersey at least first...



    and please tell me why the Red Wings would want to follow the lead of the Lions...

    Holy moly - first the Ducks uniform change (which is welcome) and now the Red Wings?
    Wonder what other team might change things?
    I hate to think the Red Wings are going to mess with the uniforms because Reebok wants them to. Or because the local NFL team did it. Hopefully they don't follow any more of the Detroit Lions lead.........
    I know the article states they had black way back in '27, but c'mon.

    edit: I looked on NHLuniforms.com, and when the Detroit franchise was the Falcons in '31, it doesn't show ANY black on the uniform - take a look:


    So? I see orange, not black.

  13. Black only works for a few teams.

    Detroit is not one of them.

    EDIT---I found this in the thread:

    Huh?

    Why?

    I don't see the desire to change the best. Maybe come out with a 3rd jersey, but don't mess with the classics. That is just f-ed up ... I couldn't imagine the league redoing the diagonal Rangers jersey or the Habs C with black ...

    I have a Wings jersey that is black,and it doesn't look that bad,besides that...alot of fans wear black jerseys when the Wings play at home already so I don't see it being that big of a deal.

    this is the jersey I was referring to that the fans already wear in Detroit. It's about halfway down the page

    This is a big mistake by Illitch. I don't know what the hell he's thinking, but I'm sure this is the advice of one of those turds in the wings ultra-cheesy Marketing Dept.

    The Wings have one of the most recognizable jerseys in all of sports. Why make it look just like everything else? OK, I know....$$$$$. Nowadays teams treat jerseys like fashion trends. Next year it'll be black, and in 5 more years they can just switch it to the whatever color will be "in" then.

    Edit: All the above presupposes that these jerseys are replacing the present jerseys. If they just add a third jersey for a few selected games, i could live with that.

    Sounds terrible.

    It's ridiculous if the switch to the new Reebok jerseys next year include overall design. That would be a travesty and a complete joke.

    I was trying to post the pics of the jerseys but the best thing you can do is check out that link and look halfway down the page and you'll see which one I'm talking about that the fans wear.

    There is no way this is true. It's a hoax.
    Red jerseys with black numbers? Yeah Right.

    You know that the stripes are what give the players greater speed, don't you? It'll be like illegal sticks: Your side stripes can only be so wide. Teams will challenge an opposing players stripes, and either get a power play or be shorthanded depending on the measurements.

    My guess is that Homer will be a repeat offender.
