I'm definitely (secretly) rooting for Sweden now.

 

I still think the stuff on the shoulders looks like semen, though.

How come Sweden gets nice things?  How come we don't get nice things? 

 

Actually, is it just me, or is everyone going "shiny" this year?

Did Nike design all of the uniforms for all countries?  It's so consistently horrible country to country that it has to be done by one person.

 

Which begs the question:  Why do other countries get forced into supporting an American company for an international competition?

Disappointed Sweden always had one if not the best jersey but this one is meh, seriously Nike should just stop making them they are all bad. Also why do non american teams support an american company? Does not make sense to me.

You guys don't like it? Maybe it's a little boring and already-done, but at least it's not, like, offensively bad (see: pretty much all the others that have been revealed so far). It has a genuinely classic feel, IMHO. I like it.

Nike must have a contract with the IOC or IIHF vs. with National Olympic committees like Roots or The Bay have had with Canada in the past.

 

I guess it is similar to the NHL where the teams can't source their own supplier for uniforms, the league would want some level of "uniformity" when it comes to jerseys, etc.

Yeah, it's funny to me how people always bemoan changing uniforms often and jumping head-first into temporary trends, but then whenever something is unveiled that looked like the last iteration, people are mad that they didn't reinvent the wheel.  It looks like a Team Sweden jersey.  I mean, if you grew up idolizing THIS:

...wouldn't it mean more to you to put on something that at least vaguely resembles that?

I'm glad they didn't change it.  I have one already and won't really need to buy new.  Not like this one has 2 crowns on it or something.

 

The only thing bad is that the crowns are right on the boobs and belly button if you're a girl, and if you're round, the bottom stripe made it look like a smiley face.

Why not change it up and make it blue and yellow instead of yellow with some blue.

I think if you put a Red Wing in that jersey, or the previous one, it looks fabulous.
