I'm really angry about this. It is pretty stupid. I think that it ruins the beauty of the hockey jersey and makes it look cluttered and ridiculous.

ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME?!

this is a joke, right?

If they do this, thats what the NHL will be, a joke.

No other sport in North America does this because it is retarded.

Well baseball is experimenting with it on the helmet. I would be cool with helmet adds...not jersey adds though...

Matt, you got me for about 15 minutes. I was sitting at my desk just fuming. Then realized what day it was. Nicely done!

I just found an advertisement for the goalie jerseys.


Plus, you know what makes it obvious that this is a joke, other than the date?
Why would the Wings have a Little Caesar's ad on the jerseys? If this is being done for revenue, Ilitch wouldn't be having corporate incest like that. If it's not necessary for the revenue, the Wings wouldn't have them.

Can't they just say they're advertising Red Wing shoes and Belle Tire and they combined the logos? Then they could keep the uniforms the way they are and collect the revenues.

That's the joy of working graveyard shift: I've been getting people with April Fool jokes for about 8 hours now.

All the same, nice one.

There's only a few people left in our office that still have a motion ball on the bottom of their mouse, so I put scotch tape over the ball of each and every one of them. It's beyond hilarious.....one guy is swearing at his mouse and ready to chuck it in to the wall. Another guy has rebooted his computer a handful of times to no avail.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.
