Red sucks, BACK IN BLACK
« on: April 19, 2010, 04:51:58 PM »
Hello fellow Sens fans.   I know I am new here, and might be rehashing some old threads regarding Sens jersey's, but here goes!

 I hated the new 3rd red jersey & crest from day one (1997) when they took our beloved Senturion, and turned him into a cartoon joke!  I hated even more the fact that we dropped the black jerseys in favor of the red jersey on the road.

  You'll never see the Habs or the Leafs make a joke of their storied jerseys.  So why did the Sens?????   Loved the original jerseys of 1992-93 season, but agreed that a small change could have been made.

Here is my favorite, so far, tell me what you think! BACK IN BLACK! :GO_SENS_GO2:



Here of course are the original ones:




Here is the cartoon crest I am referring too:  The newer Reebok Edge crest is even more cartoonish than these!!!




Here are some custom ones I have found on the net:



...And of course an earlier thread with more Sens jersey's...

I don't mind the "cartoon" and wasn't fussy about the Trojan logo actually.  I would prefer either on a black jersey instead of "SENS"

I prefer the current 3rd jersey because it is black, not a fan of the Sens but even with that it is my favorite of what the team currently has.  Frankly I wish Ottawa would find a different colour than red, but that's how it started and that is how it will stay.  I say that because too many teams have red as their home colour.

Washington
Montreal
Carolina
New Jersey
Calgary
Chicago
Detroit

Just to name a few off the top of my head.  That alone, including Ottawa is 25% of the league wearing red.

I liked the 3rd jersey that was here until 2008. The new one that says ''SENS'' is ugly

In fairness though, when Ottawa switched to red, half of those teams listed were using black jerseys instead.

Washington had blue and black. I think the rest of the teams all had red though?

Ya, but every single one of those teams started out with red jerseys! 

 The Sens started out in 1992-93 with Black Jerseys only! :senswhite:

Doesn't anybody like the old logo????  --->  :SENS2:

Could you see the Blackhawks making a "cartoon" head on their jersey's???

Actually, I was never been keen on the whole roman theme just because they want to keep the old name.  Seemed kind of forced when they started out, but that was a long time ago and now it would be weird to change it up.

I'm too old school,  I don't like change!  But as we all know, there will be more Sens Jersey's in the future! :SENSSHOOTER:

Not crazy for that Logo either, but I like the Jersey itself!

Do most people like the red Jerseys here????  :icon_angry2:

I've always thought of Ottawa as a Black team, especially since in the early years black was so dominant in their color scheme. I don't mind red, but prefer them in black wearing this :SENSSHOOTER:  logo.

This website should be renamed sensuniforms.com.  There sure is a lot of discussion around here about such an insignificant topic.  Just comparitively speaking.

Sens have a lot of problems.  Thier uniforms is not that big a priority.

So you are admitting it is a priority, just lower than others?  :D

If you want to develope an iconic brand then leave it alone.  Besides special occasions you don't see the original 6 teams dicking around with this stuff.  Pick your logo and stick with it.  Takes time but you have to let it develop into a classic type brand.

I agree.... Therefore I'd like the Sens to go back to their modern original 2D logo or some slight variation of it. The Sens haven't done squat with the new 3D logo, so it would be easily forgotten if we go back now, lol.

Guys, pick a thread to talk uniform. I am about to lock all but one or merge them together.
