has anyone heard an explanation for the black under arms?   It doesn't strike me as a good visual accent, so almost had to be some other reason

I believe it was probably copied from Tampa Bay's idea of the "victory stripes."  You know, when you raise your arms in celebration after a goal or a win.  :silly:

I'm surprised you two didn't know that - Tampa Bay only had those on their uniforms FOREVER and the fans had a total melt-down over them being removed with their last logo/jersey change.  You know, when they changed their name from the Tampa Bay Lighting to the Tampa Bay Maple Leafs?

It's all relative. The Hawk is small on the shoulders

Not necessarily related to jerseys, but I thought this hat was strange.qwewq.thumb.JPG.1348faa0f5e6511633006685606769dd.JPG

Figured it out. It is a style of 47 brand hat, that is made for many pro teams. Couldn't find one on the Blackhawks store, but I did find others in the style. They tend to have throwback logos, and I guess someone down at Sioux Shop thought they were just perfect.

Man, I really have a way of silencing threads. As soon as I post something, everyone's gone. The entire men's hockey forum has been dead for five hours. Am I so bad that this entire website has a collective five hour awkward silence? :lol::lol::lol:

i'm assuming thats photoshpped?

Yep-- bored at work.

As for the these jerseys/font etc. They're growing on me. The lack of pit stains helps quite a bit, as does the addition of the stripes on the black jersey. I really wish they just went with the logo for the crest. They pay a ton of money to get a replacement logo (which, in my opinion, is pretty solid) and then throw it on the shoulder-- and not even on the ice.

They need to stop being ashamed of their new identity because some people can't let go.

I'd love for them to do something like this:

Simple enough, but still in line with traditional design UND has been associated with. I kind of get why they went with the current design-- it's easier to gradually change your identity, but sometimes it's better to just rip the band-aid off.

For the shoulders-- I wish they came out with an entire logo system that included an alt logo, but here we are. I'd love to see something in the vein of the old S-tomahawk logo that was on the "Blackhawk" sweaters, but I don't know if something like this would go over well--

I'd love it if there was a play off of the ND state flag somehow-- the sunburst over the hawk logo, but I just haven't had time to get to that just yet. All that being said-- we need a secondary logo.

"Rip the Band Aid-Off",  that's good and so are your designs!!! 

Thank you-- I appreciate it! 

Maybe I was harsh with the whole "people can't get over it" comment, because truth be told-- I personally love the old Sioux designs. Especially the most recent and the geometric design. There wasn't a single college that had a better logo than the University of North Dakota. Hell, I'd argue the last Sioux logo was a better logo than a good deal of professional sports teams. 

For the designers that made the Fighting Hawks logo, it was tough to live up to those expectations, and with a name like "Fighting Hawks" it was going to be even tougher. Also, with the anger stemming from how the nickname/logo was removed, it's going to be a gradual and delicate task to introduce these logos into the community. I think UND's done a decent job so far, but like I said-- rip that band-aid off.

Sorry I think the logo is okay for shoulder patch, but as the primary on a hockey jersey it looks out of place, that's part of the reason I was confused when this was all we got from SME for 50 grand,  I was under the assumption that we would get a primary and secondary logo for that much money.
