Can’t say that I don’t hate the new alternative sweaters, although, I can’t say that I absolutetly love them. And if reports from Icethetics are accurate (which they usually are) the Sweater is going to remain on after this season instead of being solely used as an anniversay year sweater.
I don’t think they reached far back enough in Buffalo history to get a feel for a true anniversary sweater. I would have much prefered they had gone to a “bottle cap” jersey instead of just a simple writing design, like many teams are using for an alternate sweater.
I think the team could have knocked the alternate sweater out of the park had they released a blue and gold version of the original Buffalo Bisons sweater. If you wanted to truly blend modern with historic sweaters, go Blue and Gold and slap Sabres on the bottle cap instead of Buffalo – that way you are paying tribute to the past, while keeping the present team in mind as well.
