The Sabres’ third jersey is…sure something

Sep 4, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

So apparently this is the new Buffalo Sabres’ third jersey…



Sorry about that, Sabres fans.

    Wow that is disappointing

    Maybe folks will disagree but I’m certainly not a fan. Most teams tend to go with vibrant 3rd jerseys but there’s just something about these that I don’t like. Atleast they’re finally done with the incessant teasers, seemed like they’d never reveal them fully.

    Nashalo? Buffaville?

    • ethanmacleod1685 - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:51 PM

      That’s what I thought

  4. goodolejr - Sep 4, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    Looks like he’s wearing a cape.

    • ethanmacleod1685 - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:52 PM

      He is

    • thesportsjudge - Sep 4, 2013 at 5:23 PM

      It’s Steve Ott, so no, there is no way it would be a cape.

    It is not being market to older hockey fans. They market these jersey’s to kids, and probably not a bad idea. My 2 sons are already saying how “sweet” they are!

      Reebok taking a page out of the Nike handbook

    • davebabychreturns - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:19 PM

      Your sons have awful taste.

      • elemeno89 - Sep 4, 2013 at 3:50 PM

        Didn’t Scrubs teach you anything? You can make fun of your own kids, but you never, EVER, make fun of kids that belong to someone else. Thus why I gave you a thumbs down.

        Taste is an opinion, and if his kids like them then so be it. They aren’t wrong for doing so. There will be a lot of people, kids and adults alike that will buy these jerseys.

        I mean, I won’t be one of them, but who am I to judge the preferences of someone else…

    Now that is ugly.

  8. supercoop8 - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:06 PM

    He looks like a guy wearing an old jersey with a gray hoodie underneath and a rain poncho tied around his neck; he looks like he is about to step on the field for slow pitch softball on a cloudy day in the fall.

  9. kgun80 - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:08 PM

    Almost as bad as the black and red devil goat we used to wear…

  10. jcmeyer10 - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:22 PM

    Based on the season projections, you’d think Buffalo would want to blend into the ice more than stand out!

  11. longbino - Sep 4, 2013 at 1:25 PM

    Awful ! Did they get this on clearance at Wal Mart it doesn’t even look real !

  12. pitpenguinsrulez - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:13 PM

    Well those are fugly! Looks like the Nashville Predators.

  13. President Charles Logan - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:14 PM

    comparing buffalo’s new jerseys to nashville’s lol.. i feel sorry for the preds fans to have to be linked to those bottom feeders

    • newconfucius - Sep 4, 2013 at 10:55 PM

      Buffalo – 48 points
      Nashville – 41 points

      • President Charles Logan - Sep 5, 2013 at 12:33 AM

        wow ! impressive! , all buffalo’s long storied history & success is really overwhelming !

  14. ryanprzy - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:21 PM

    Those jerseys are atrocious. The team should cut every player a bonus check for each time they have to wear those this season.

  15. titansrbeast - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:28 PM

    LOL!!! One of the ugliest jerseys I’ve seen in my entire life. It looks like something you would buy in a store, like a fake jersey or something. Seriously, how the hell did this even get made? It’s just too funny imo… what a joke haha.

  16. shanesander - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:30 PM

    it’s like an 8th grader ran out of fabric in sewing class and just threw something together..

  17. faulkingallstar - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:38 PM

    their are so many things with this jersey that look out of place, it looks decent from the back, but the front of the jersey is a complete mess. I understand if you want to try something new , but wow it looks horrible

  18. ironmd778 - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:50 PM

    What the???

  19. mehetmet - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:53 PM

    Why are there two different shades of yellow? Really? Look at the chest, then at the arms, they don’t match…

    Like I get a bad design and all, someone might think it’s cool – i mean its really objective no big deal.

    But really, you can’t even match the colors? Two different yellows? C’mon man! Looks like someone didn’t mix the Kraft Man-n-Cheese well enough.

  20. bleedingteal4life - Sep 4, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    I actually like them. They look heavy though.

    • bauxjangles - Sep 4, 2013 at 3:27 PM

      You like teal, you clearly have no taste.

  21. bauxjangles - Sep 4, 2013 at 3:02 PM

    I don’t know what’s uglier- this jersey or steve ott.

  22. afrancis55 - Sep 4, 2013 at 3:31 PM

    What’s with the random gray part on the sleeves?

    • ibieiniid - Sep 4, 2013 at 4:25 PM

      it represents the grey area between what their brains think they’ll do as a franchise, and what their hands will actually do.

      idk… that was a stretch.

      • thesportsjudge - Sep 4, 2013 at 5:26 PM

        The grey area is the GM. Doesn’t know if he is rebuilding or not.

  23. hockeyflow33 - Sep 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    I think the theme is terrible jerseys for a terrible team.

  24. steelers88 - Sep 4, 2013 at 5:53 PM

    Sigh. One word NO!

  25. wallio - Sep 4, 2013 at 6:04 PM

    Am I the only one who likes them? Sure they aren’t as good as the old red crossed swords (BEST jersey in hockey bar none) but they beat the hell out of the banana slug, and the crappy BUFFALO! ones of years past. I like how the Captains will have swords around the C and the A. I’ll buy one.

  26. thompsonatl - Sep 4, 2013 at 6:05 PM

    Looks like Predator Yellow With a little baby diarrhea.

  27. Lupy Nazty Philthy - Sep 4, 2013 at 6:05 PM


    “Yellow Bellies” are cowards.

    That sweater has a yellow belly.

  28. hieronymous27 - Sep 4, 2013 at 6:13 PM

    The jersey can be described in two words: BUTT UGLY. Then again, most third jerseys are.

  29. dhillca - Sep 4, 2013 at 6:29 PM

    Just threw up in my mouth a little bit…

  30. tdrusher225 - Sep 4, 2013 at 10:01 PM

    At least their home and away jerseys are pretty good. They’ll look even better now in comparison.

  31. greatmiamisportsmind - Sep 4, 2013 at 10:04 PM

    Luckily Vanek will be wearing that uniform for 1 season and then wearing the fresh new Wild ones next season.
