Are fracking atrocious. They even have fake tie ups in the front.

Are they going for a super hero look?
Only these could make Backes look friendly.

It's not hard at all to make a good looking jersey. But people somehow manage to screw it up big time every year.

When the time comes for a new jersey design, if teams would just ask fans to submit jersey designs and then pick a half dozen finalists and ask the fans to vote on the one they like the best, they would get a kick ass design. Not some stupid attempt at being cutting edge/modern or trying to do something different. More times than not, it looks bad or at best, so-so. How many times do we see a new jersey design and say, "Eh, it's not terrible...but it could be a lot better." It annoys the piss out of me that very few teams get that.

Not quite jersey related, but anyone think Backes will be the Captain in Socchi? I think he's got a shot and his Capt. America nickname will come to fruition.

Shouldn't the stars on the shoulders be white? Oh that's right, this is a bad design idea so of course they're wrong! How Nouveau of the designer, probably not even an American...or even made in America. Pathetic all around.

I saw somewhere (may have been Puck Daddy) say that the stars look more like shiny dandruff. Now that's all I see. I don't mind the crest, but it's a bit awkward. Maybe it should be a bit bigger, I'm not sure.

I can't explain why, but they remind me of soccer jerseys.

The crest reminds me of the centennial jerseys the USMNT wore recently.

Well at least they'll be using it on some real athletes and not a bunch of pansy soccer players.

This country is going down the crapper, so why not their Olympic jerseys as well?...but I'm not getting political. That's a no-no around here.

How this design gets approved, I don't know. Was it just one guy who had the job of getting the jersey's designed and didn't need to bother getting input from anyone else? That's the only explanation I can come up with. Surely a whole board of people weren't involved...............right?

Its not about the jersey your wearing, but rather the team your playing for. Jesus Christ I thinking this board has more fashion police on here than hockey fans.

I have an excuse. I'm a graphic/web designer. I can't help but notice crappy looking stuff.

By the way, it's "you're"....grammar police. :wink:

Hopefully it's one of those deals that looks better in full uniform, pads, pants, gloves and when actually on the ice, etc.

Check out these specs!
Quote:
TECHNOLOGY:
-Nike Flywire reinforces the neck area while providing a closer fit to prevent slipping. The aesthetic also provides a nod to the traditional lace neck design.
-Reduced seaming eliminates weight and creates a more traditional blocked look.
-Recycled polyester embraces sustainable innovation without compromising performance. Each jersey is made from about seventeen plastic bottles and the socks use approximately five plastic bottles.
-Lightweight premium letters and numbers shave off unnecessary weight.
-Zoned ventilation and articulated sleeves for ventilation and maximum range of motion.
-Stretch open hole mesh under arm for added ventilation.

:lol:

The tech in the jersey is fine. Good for them using recycled materials, making the jersey lighter, etc. But that doesn't explain the sub-par design.

The lace neck design is just stupid. If you want to provide a nod to the traditional lace neck design, then put actual laces on the damn thing. Don't draw them on. It just screams cheap Wal-mart mock jersey.
And the crest patch looks like it has put on a few pounds. Why it's flared out and has love handles at the bottom is anyone's guess. The traditional Team USA shield isn't near that pear shaped.

This is cool however:

That's why they lost in Vancouver. The lettering on their jerseys was slowing them down.
