Whoa, the Bloods just called - they want their clothes back. Are they really trying to go after the gang member market with that one?

What the hell??????

First the Coyotes and now this...what's wrong with the teams in Arizona...I think they might be trying to use their ugly jerseys to distract the opposition and win a couple of extra games...

Actually, I was presently surpirised how the new Diamondbacks jersey turned out. Quite frankly, the Diamondbacks had made a number of changes over the past several years to the uniforms, for instance taking the Diamondbacks off and replacing it with the A. Any one remember the back and teal caps, and the white caps for Sundays (1998),I for one is happy the ugly vest uniforms are gone.

I don't mind the red color but can they at least spell out the damn name.

I was thinking more along the lines of the hispanic folks who put their name in the back window of their big truck in Old English letters. All the team needs to add now is a picture of the Virgin Mary hovering over the stadium and they'll corner the Mexican market.  Wink

Remember Arizona is near the bottom in education, so maybe management didn't know how to spell Diamondbacks. P.S. the Mets don't spell out their entire name either.

True, but when was the last time you heard them refered to as the New York Metropolitans on a regular basis?

Maybe, these new uniforms will be as short-lived as the 1979 Phillies uniform.

I like the Coyotes' uniform. It has a classic look to it and hey, it beats the new Horned Slugs Sabres uniform.

The idea has a ton of potential, I just think it was poorly executed. Spell out the name or use the A logo in the new colors, I don't like the font, but it's OK. I like the roads unis more than home, but neither really looks that nice. I am just glad they got away from black and purple.

If you want to get technical they are the "Metropolitan Baseball Club of New York." But that would look even worse on the uniforms  Wink

At first glance I hated these new colors and jerseys - but I've gotta admit, they're growing on me.

I still think the old colors were fine though.

It's a trend in professional sports. Just look at some of the new NBA uniforms...My freaking GOD some of them are just UGLY. Then with Addidas taking over everything including the reffs shirts...it's just too....branded...for me.

Just sad.

Is that the new OFFICIAL uniform though? It says "alternate 1" on the link... maybe it's a special occasion jersey or some other non-used jersey...

Oh crap! I just looked at the D-backs official website, and it looks like it is the official jersey! Dear sweet mother of God, I'm happy I'm a Padres fan right now! I would be so embarrassed to be a Diamondbacks fan when they unleashed that new design!

Oh well, what can I do?
