Buffalo Sabres and Steve Ott Reveal 3rd Jersey

Today Steve Ott reminded us all why we love him so much. Once again today the Buffalo Sabres twitter account sent out a “sneak peek” of their new alternate third jerseys, and like most fans Steve Ott was also sick and tired off all the sneak peeks, so he threatened to reveal the jersey to the twitter world if the Buffalo Sabres didn’t.

Twitter exploded as Ott and the Sabres twitter went back and forth with each other and fans wondered if Ott was bluffing and if this was a publicity stunt set up by the Sabres. While it likely was a publicity stunt, Ott got past #FortKnox and did indeed leak the Buffalo Sabres 3rd jersey. And before you ask, yes they are as terrible as you were expecting.

And the Back…

First of all, a huge thank you to Steve Ott from all Sabres fans and media for putting us out of our misery and showing us the jersey. While it was slightly disappointing not to see a “C” on Ott’s new 3rd jersey, it was nice to finally see what the Sabres have been hiding from us.

Seriously Sabres? What’s up with the yellow? Last time I checked the Buffalo Sabres weren’t the Nashville Predators, do these not look very similar to the Predators jersey’s?

In a publicity stunt likely set up by the Sabres and Ott, the two managed to rope the twitter world into their debate before revealing a jersey almost as bad as the American’s Olympic jersey for 2014. You know a jersey is bad when the back looks better than the front.

Well Sabres’ fans what do you think of the Buffalo Sabres new third jersey? Do you like it? Is Steve Ott your new hero for breaking the rules to put an end to the fans misery?
