Wow.

 

The design, the logo, the cut...  Every single thing about this jersey is ugly.

 

Whoever the people were that approved this as the final design need to be fired immediately.

Still awful.

 

I lurve Russia's, even if they're the same thing as ours or whatever. Actually, I'm not overly keen on the red. But the white is very nice.

The only upside to these jerseys is that i actually believe the stars will look good under the bright lights of the rink. I heard a story that they will be semi reflective while they are playing, not like blinding but shiny.

A little bird tells me that when we check - with our shoulders - the stars will actually explode on impact.

Wonder if there's a way to see all the other country's jerseys too. Any Canada members following such developments?

It would be real sick if DD, Jimmy, and Abby all made it.

Screw that. I don't want any Wings playing and risking injury. What happens if Datsyuk or Howard or someone else blows up their ACL in the Olympics?

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Well, I'm American, so I have to root for all of them. *ambivalent face*

 

(Secretly, I'm rooting for Sweden.)

 

Also, all these people saying that the people responsible for the U.S. jerseys are going to be fired into oblivion - you know that's not going to happen. You know they're getting promotions and raises and sublimated stars.

I came into the thread thinking people often overreact to things like jersey changes.  

 

But holy schnikey those things are ugly.  

 

 

It's strange that Nike would go with that, since it's so reminiscent of the K-swiss logo.

It looks like cheap commercialized garbage. Certainly not representative of anything in the USA. 

 

Doesn't someone have to approve these, or did Nike just get free reign on it?

It's not just the jerseys that are awful.  Who the heck is in charge of marketing for Team USA?? 

 

The team photos from orientation camp are worse than school pictures.

At frist I thought this player (who is that guy?) was advertising K-Swiss shorts then I realized oh no it's the USA jersey presentation. Is it too late to change that thing?

Of all the men to model the USA jersey, why not choose someone good looking?  Not that he has to be sexy, just not... creepy.

 

Were you thinking of something more like this?

Even our own Danny DeKeyser wasn't spared the humiliation...

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!
