Need everyone be reminded of the Olympics and the non-swift jersey wearing Swedes. “Enhancement” or not, better teams still win.I also don’t like the idea of shutting down the third jersey program (but at least that says it WILL be back.)

But this swift jersey thing really has me terrified. I suppose if you look at a NFL lineman or receiver now compared to 10 years ago you’d see almost as much of a difference, but that trend happened gradually, and still wouldn’t look as silly as it will on the ice. These uniforms are SUPPOSED to be baggy. And there isn’t a fan alive that would look good in one of those form-fitting things. I could live with this swift jersey thing if they did one thing–Had each team get their own designers for the jerseys. Instead they are all going to look the same because it is cheaper and easier.And sorry, but one of the things hockey has going for it is the colorful jerseys that people like to buy. When the swift jerseys come out, a lot of people won’t want them–particularly those carrying a few extra pounds. All Activity This topic is now closed to further replies.

They can only sell so many of the same old Canadiens, Blackhawks, etc jerseys. Sure they make money off the teams who have newer 3rds, but a league rehaul would really bring in the cash.

Now I see what Reebok’s up to… 553 posts Members 1 Share this post Location:New Jersey 542 0 542 Posted August 31, 2006 So I found this on the SabresFans message board, sounds like he found it somewhere on the Blackhawks website:Saw this posted somewhere: (blackhawks)Thanks for input regarding our third jersey. We will be staying with our current third jersey for the 2006-07 season. The NHL has notified the teams that they will suspend the third jersey program for the 2007-08 season. We have discussed several options for the our third jersey when the NHL resumes the third jersey program for the 2008-09 season, and have not yet finalized our strategy. Once again, thanks for your input and we look forward to seeing you at the United Center this season.Sounds to me like this will be the last year for regular, old school hockey jerseys. It could be the only reason why they would get rid of the 3rd jerseys, to go to the Reebok Swift Jersesy style.Sad news for hockey purists, but i guess we’ll wait and see…This also brings into question the vintage program – – The Sabres are gonna wear the vintage as their third, but all of buffalo will be pissed if they go only with the slug.And finally, the only upside: Could they be going back to White at home, colors on the road? 2 Location:Waxahachie, Texas Link to post Share on other sites 7 542 I’d like to chime in with my thoughts on these swift jerseys for a second.First off … the thought that they will look futuristic and spandexy i don’t think is accurate. If anything … i believe that seeing the players on the ice in these things will only harken back to a more traditional “Jacques Plante” era. And personally, i love that idea … this will actually have a fairly large impact on the sport i think … by widening the gap between speed/skill players and big/tough players. the middle ground will not be as prevelant … just my thought on that.As for the ‘template’ argument … i don’t think this will even be a consideration. I think the NHL knows all too well that their fans are not interested in losing their tradition … the jerseys will all remain exactly the same .. and each team will have liberty to design their jersey as they see fit … some might redesign their stuff though to consider the fact that their ‘canvas’ has changed in form, so they may have new designs to better compliment that. Traditional teams will not be making silly changes at all though.Lastly .. the tight fitting jerseys will most likely be tight fitting on players wearing pads … not on your average human wearing skin. they won’t be as poncho-esque as jerseys now … but they will not be form fitting or spandex.This is all my own speculation, and I have really no hands on evidence to prove or disprove any of this .. so take it as you will … just my thoughts.

TOUCH LINE BAN FOR MOURINHO IMMINENT

first_imgJose Mounriho could face a touchline ban if he is slapped with another FA charge after his bust up at stamford bridge.The former chelsea boss reacted after Marco Ianni (assistant coach at chelsea) taunted him in front of his team’s bench when Ross Barkley scored a 96th minute equaliser.Mourinho had to be held back by stewards and staff when he went for Ianni, and the brawl continued into the tunnel in a chaotic end to the game.The incident was included in referee Mike Dean’s report of the game, which means that both Mourinho and Ianni could face charges.The United manager is already facing an FA hearing on Wednesday after uttering a string of Portuguese swear words at a television camera following his team’s win over Newcastle two weeks ago.Antonio Rudiger’s early goal gave Chelsea the lead before two strikes from Anthony Martial put United ahead, they looked set for a win until Barkley struck in the sixth minute of injury time.That prompted Ianni, who was sitting in the second row on the bench, to leap up and race into the United technical area before twice taunting Mourinho to his face with fists clenched.RelatedMourinho Escapes Further Punishment After Weekend’s DismissalSeptember 26, 2017In “England”Manchester United: The Team To End Man City’s Stellar Form?November 9, 2018In “England”Mourinho Taunts Conte Over Match Fixing ScandalJanuary 6, 2018In “England”last_img read more

President Trump: U.S., North Korea already talking ‘at extremely high levels’

first_imgOlivier Douliery – Pool/Getty Images(WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.) — President Donald Trump said Tuesday that members of his administration are already talking to officials in North Korea “at extremely high levels” about his possible summit with Kim Jong Un.“We have also started talking to North Korea directly, at extremely high levels,” Trump said during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his Mar—a—Lago resort in Florida.Trump made the surprise announcement as he kicked off his two days of talks with Abe. Both leaders said the potential Trump-Kim summit is expected to dominate their agenda, along with discussions on trade.Just after Abe’s arrival, Trump reacted to news that South Korea and North Korea were nearing a potential agreement to announce the end of their decades-long military conflict ahead of a meeting between South Korean President Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un.Trump said the two countries “have my blessing” to discuss ending the war, and said Asian leaders have given him significant credit for the recent series of positive developments pointing towards potential lasting peace in the Korean peninsula.“They’ve been very generous that without us and without me in particular, I guess, they wouldn’t be discussing anything and the Olympics would have been a failure,” Trump said.Trump said that he and Abe are “very unified” on the issue of North Korea, and said there are five separate locations under consideration as he plans to meet with Kim Jong Un in early June or before that. But the president also added a potential caveat.“Assuming things go well, it’s possible things won’t go well and we won’t have the meeting,” Trump said. “We will see what happens.”Speaking to reporters in advance of Abe’s arrival, Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow and senior director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council Matthew Pottinger emphasized that Trump and Abe have a close friendship and that Trump has met with Abe more than any other foreign leader since taking office 14 months ago.Trump said that he and Abe hope to play a round of golf together, if possible — saying the pair would “sneak out” to hit the links tomorrow at one of Trump’s nearby golf courses if they have the time.Kudlow was also asked about his new role announced last week after a meeting the president held with lawmakers at the White House to consider the U.S. potentially negotiating to re-join the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade accord the president routinely derided as a “terrible deal” while he was a candidate for the presidency.“There’s nothing at all concrete,” Kudlow said. “On the American side at the moment, it’s more of a thought than a policy.”Kudlow insisted the Japanese are open to discussions about potentially reentering, but said such a deal would only happen if the U.S. is able to achieve a more favorable deal.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Bok prop Ruan Dreyer returning home
