Just amazing.  Hockey sweaters in general are by far the best jersey types in all of professional sports.  It takes a special kind of effort to really f' one up & Buffalo, this goes beyond f'ed up.  Congrats

Honestly, it looks more like a Preds jersey than a Sabres jersey. Big thumbs down from this guy. At least we won't see em much being the 3rd jersey and all.

This one easily competes with team USA for the worst jersey ever. I mean, the idea behind it isn't that bad but comon the grey is unbelievable misplaced.

The buffalo in the logo looks like it got drunk and fell over, or like it's falling out of the sky and is going to land on the sabres.

I don't mind the back of the jersey at all, but it seems like whoever was creating it took a s*** and died before making his way to the front thus leaving the rest of the jersey to be finished by his 11 year old niece. No offense to 11 year old girls, most of whom could probably design a better jersey.

 It really does now that you mentioned it.  It's tongue is hanging out like it's gonna wake up in 13 hours and take 10 minutes to moisten again after drunkenly mouth breathing all night.

 

Those jerseys are atrocious.  Mabus' "BARF" pretty much sums that one up.

The #Sabres are now deleting Facebook hate comments about their jerseys. Which is the most futile endeavor since they last took the ice.

The funny part about this whole debacle is the money companies are getting paid to come up with such atrocious designs.

 

Also *lol* at the Sabres deleting negative comments

This jersey is absolutely terrible.
It looks like they cut up 3 jerseys and then taped the pieces together.

I just noticed the yellow on the arms, and the yellow on the front are actually different hues... 

 

these will do just fine for the shorts...

From Pro Hockey/NBC Sports

 

Sabres president Ted Black initially declined comment when first asked about the reaction. It got so big and spread so far that Black finally did address it last month it in his weekly appearance on WGR Radio the morning after the season opener.

And he did it by unleashing another one of those one-word sayings (think "suffering") that the Sabres have become so famous for.

"Judge for yourself whenever you see it. If you come into the store and you look at it and say I don’t want to buy it or you do buy it ... If it doesn’t sell, it won’t really mean anything to our bottom line. It’s a third jersey. If it’s a turd burger I’ll have to put it on a bun and eat it. It’s the way it is.”

So is the blue part supposed to be a cape? Because if you look at it that way, the stupid v dealy at the neck makes sense.

Tonight's game on NHLN is the first time I've watched them in these jerseys.  I have to say, they look even worse on TV than in pictures.  The players look like ugly, winged creatures out there.    

 

Wow.     :bad:  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I don't mind them. Wouldn't buy one ever but I like it whej teams break out of trendy design ruts and go for color, even If it Is yellow. But I do laugh at them for releasing new jerseys every six months.

Just saw these live for the first time last night playing Philly. Wow. I'm convinced these guys continuously hire people that failed out of graphic design school to come up with all these jersey schemes they have.

It goes along with most of the decisions the Sabres seem to make. 

 

The logo for their third jersey should be a team tanking for a draft pick.
