    Quinn on WGR: New jerseys in 2 years?

    Quinn was on WGR today and Bulldog asked him about the new 3rd jerseys, and what could happen if they sell well, well received, etc..

    Quinn confirmed that the team is in talks to potentially make the 3rds our PRIMARY jersey for 2010-11, which will be the 40th anniversary year.

    he said the current slug jersey may be a 3rd jersey.

    yeah, i mean its cool and all, but its a lil overkill.

    of course if they do this it means yet another new jersey with the vintage in white.

    I cant catch up to all these, i still need a slug blue, red 3rd and a white old school.

    The Slug would only last as a third jersey for 2 seasons -- tops. Nobody would buy new ones or want to see the team wear them again during games. So give it 4 years and there will be a new third jersey to go along with the new home and away jerseys.

    It's not a waste of money if the Sabres are making a profit on them...which they clearly are.

    There has to be a reason why the old school logo is on the ice right now...


    ...and all signs point to old school for the win.

    Old school. Not just a kick ass movie, but a way to design jerseys.

    Makes us a joke? Hardly, moving back to the original crest would be amazing. As long as we keep winning who cares. Welcome to the failboat on this one.

    Keeping the old logo but darkening the blue is what they should have done back in 1997. They could have even fancied up the numbers if they wanted to. I liked the red and black, but if this was going to be the end result, then what the hell?

    And for the record, the only teams that keep it "old school" are teams with championship tradition. The Sabres aren't one of them.

    or just not change the jersey at all from the original. the sabres crest was second only to chicago for best jersey in the nhl, though the canadiens might have an argument

    Agreed. If I was running the Sabres, I'd change my jersey and logo every 2 years, because the fans would still buy everything, everything time, and you'd make shit loads of profit.

    I'd make the late 2000's red jersey my 3rd jersey with the old school as the #1.

    If you read it for what the quote actually saying though, Quinn only states that the new 3rd's would be the main jersey for the 40th anniversery season, which is the 2010-2011 season.

    I hope it's for the long term, but Quinn didn't say that.

    Well he did say the Slug would be the third. If the switch is only for commemorative purposes then why bother with a third? Just wear the originals for the year and then switch back.

    In order to build a championship tradition, you do everything the championship teams do. That includes not changing jerseys every year like Michigan or Pitt.

    I see tons of Oregon and Virginia Tech swag, but I never see any Yankees, Notre Dame, Penn State, Texas Longhorn or Boston Celtics gear worn by anyone.
