The Philadelphia Flyers unveiled a new 50th anniversary jersey on Wednesday and — surprise! — pretty much everybody hates them.
The jersey, which will be worn 12 times next season to celebrate the organization’s 50th year, is much like their regular primary road jersey … but with plenty of gold accents. There’s gold around the team’s logo, inside the numbers and around the trim of the nameplate. It’s a lot of gold, but the Flyers seem to like it.
In addition to the "special" jersey being quite weird and lazy, many also questioned the team’s decision to incorporate so much gold, when it’s one of the colors used by cross-state rivals the Pittsburgh Penguins.
@NHLFlyers@28CGiroux You realize gold is our main rival's color. Right. Like the Eagles adding a blue star.
