I had a chance to look at the Jets new jersey's and I'm disappointed only in the fact that there isn't very much red (aside from the logo there is none) in the jersey.
I think, like a lot of people, I wanted to see an updated version of the last Jets jersey's. Of course, as has been noted elsewhere on this site, maybe it was that expectation, along with the name, that made the designers and team want to part from what WAS the Jets...if just a little.
I guess we should also realize that time moves on and the people who own and run the Jets now are free to pick what they like.
As I mentioned in a previous blog concerning the Predators new gold jersey's, seeing them in game action sometimes changes a person's opinion.
I wasn't a big fan of the Penguins dark blue Winter Classic jersey's when they were unveiled (thought there were too many blue/white bands) but seeing them from a distance, and in action, I like them a lot more.
So to all those that have already canned the Jets jersey's...maybe give them a little time to grow on you before you decide if you really think they suck or not.
And if that doesn't work...just be glad they didn't come up with something like this for their new design...the Canadiens "seizure inducing" jerseys:
Thanks for reading...
