Blues Uni question

Postby Smytheman » Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:04 am

Does anyone know the rotation of when the Blues wear the home blues at home, and the third jersey? I'm looking to go to a home game and take some pics but I prefer the home blue. Do they have a set number of games they can wear the third jersey?

I thought I read somewhere that the Blues plan on wearing their thirds at Saturday home games. The rest of the games should be the blue home jersey unless a team requests a jersey change (like Minnesota did on Friday night, requesting to wear their thirds while we wore our away whites).

Have their third jerseys become popular enough to incorporate them as the new home jersey in a year or two???

Haven't heard a whole lot since they came out, but I know a lot of people really like them and there are a few teams who have done this in the past...

Blah, NO.

While I don't mind the third jersey, I don't want that to be the official home jersey.

Yeah, no thanks.
I really like the 3rd jersey...but it should remain a 3rd jersey. You don't screw with the bluenote.

I want teh Blues to bring back the Gretzky era jerseys for a game or two. Slanted numbers and everything. Without telling anyone, and just as a surprise, I think it'd be teh fun!

Third jersey sucks. Nice concept, poor execution.

The most distinctive element is the Arch, yet it ends up in the background behind the Blue Note. Um, excuse me, but the Blue Note is prominently featured in the primary and secondary logos.

The third jersey logo looks like something that might have been doodled on napkin by an owner's wife.

This is the first I have heard of someone not liking it.

I don't really like when teams use a different logo for their third jersey. I like how they still have the blue note as the main attraction, because that is our team's logo.

Just be glad we don't use a nickname as a third jersey (Bolts, Sens, etc.). Now that kind of deal is retarded.

I have a feeling this would go as well as when Louie first dropped out of the scoreboard a few years back. A few scattered cheers, but mostly just confused, angered booing.

I hate the third jersey, I honestly don't like anything about it. It only makes it worse how often we wear them and how much everyone loves them. The best thing about the third jersey for me is that it has made me appreciate our primary jersey.

I kinda liked the Blues alternate until I saw it in person. The blue is too dark, in my opinion. I like their regular home jersey a lot better. The alternate isn't terrible, but it's not great either.

I really like the 3rd, though I wouldn't completely replace the regular home jersey with it.

I'd like the 3rd sweater a bit better if they used yellow numbers. The Blues have ALWAYS had yellow numbers on their blue sweaters, iirc......

Gotta agree. I love the crest on the third jersey and the tie neck, but it should remain the alternate - the Blue Note isn't going anywhere.

The third jersey has its faults, but it has one key element that I like - the horizontal stripe at the bottom. The regular jerseys suck with the vertical stripes that continue on the pants.
