We were wrong.
Last week, we passed along reports that indicated these jerseys were, in fact, the real Winter Classic sweaters to be worn by the Flyers on January 2nd at CBP. Since that post, I’ve been told be multiple folks that those jerseys are not confirmed, and likely not the final design. They may be close, and perhaps nearly identical (indications are that they will be predominately orange and feature black shoulders), but what we posted was incorrect.
While this is hardly a serious matter, we did want to make sure that we updated the report. We rarely hold back here on CB, but do take pride in passing along accurate information– both from other reports and our own sources. In this case, we were one of many sites that jumped the gun on the unconfirmed report.
Like I said, it’s very possible that the final design resembles what was posted; however, no one knows for sure. We’ll keep at it and still make it our goal to leak the jerseys before they’re unveiled.
