Sabres unveil new jersey.

Saturday, September 16, 2006
Well, apparently an outcry from Buffalo Sabres' fans (and probably a lot of hockey fans in general) didn't stop the Sabres from unveiling the feared and generally disliked "Buffaslug."

Yesterday, Sabre Ratting commented on how he was glad he waited to pass judgement until he saw the full jersey himself. And it's true, the jerseys as a whole look fine. But I couldn't help but feel that it looked familiar. A little too familiar ...

Listen, folks. Obviously I am no jersey designer, but the shared colors just seems a little too obvious to disregard here. If that wasn't enough, consider that both of these jersey designs are by the wonderful people at Reekbok (or RBK). The only real difference I can see here is Nashville's mustard yellow line across the bottom of the jersey, as well as an emphasis on more silver along the shoulder and arm sections of the jersey.

But, hey, whatever. You get what you pay for. Maybe I'll start calling them the Nashville Sabres, or Buffalo Predators. Or the Buffaville Prebres (wtf?). Maybe the Nashalo Sabators?

Okay, okay! I'll stop. Maybe it's just the bad angle of the picture taken of the new Sabres' jersey. Either way, I'm not impressed.

    Hehe. The Buffaville Prebres. I almost Choked on my Cheetos when I read that. I would buy season tickets for any team called The Buffaville Prebres.
