The Flyers’ 50th Anniversary Jersey landed with a thud. They got buried online (by Kyle, the “online uniform community,” and many, many people on Twitter). Let’s take a look at why the Flyers have a swing and a miss on their hands.
First, it’s lazy. It’s kind of their current white jersey with gold swapped in strategically. The orange yoke stops at the shoulder instead of continuing to the sleeve. Outline the logo and fill the numbers and Captain’s “C” with gold, and that’s about it. I actually don’t hate the use of gold, but it’s being wasted on accents on what amounts to the current uniform.
