Comments on the post “Helping The New York Mets Get Rid Of Black Uniform…“:
I personally think if the Mets want to have an “alternate” jersey, why not switch the blue ones they used in batting practice last year, even the ones they have this year with the black ones…Make the black jerseys the “warmup” batting practice jerseys and the blue ones the alternate ones.
Now that makes tons of sense.
I think throwback Giants/Dodgers jerseys are a fantastic idea!
Anything that honors the Giants would be a pleasure.
Maybe the team is just trying to attract heat to themselves. Either way, I hate the black jerseys and hats, only because every single team seems to want to wear them now, from the Blue Jays to the , and its getting rid on any identity (and tradition!) that these teams once had. I just don’t get them. Whats the point?
People buy them. Stop buying them and they will go away. That’s why I propose the Mets offer new variants (since it is all about the money). Bang out some pseduo-Giants stuff and watch them sell.
personally, I have no problem with the Black jerseys, but I know that it’s not really an official jersey. I do like the black on the pinstripe jerseys (my favorite one) because it makes the blue and orange stand out better. the all black caps just suck, but better than those all white caps they had in 1997. i heard Howie and Wayne on the say that the Braves jersey was dark navy blue (or something like that) in pointing out the two teams’ jerseys and how ridiculous it was to have them looking so similar. if the Mets were going to wear retro jerseys, don’t you think their treasonous owner would get them “Brooklyn” jerseys to wear instead of one of the jerseys you show? look in the big team stores at to see what it looks like.
If the Dodgers didn’t wear Brooklyn caps on the very first Jackie Robinson night (at Shea) I don’t think we’ll see Brooklyn stuff ever.
One person said that we’ll never change the minds of ownership…I’m not including that comment because it was in all caps and I don’t feel like retyping it.
And quickly that illegal activity that we won’t promote – the guy could get a year in jail. Since there’s ample evidence, his “not guilty” is an absurd plea. Book him Dan-o.
Does anyone know how to contact Howie Rose (for real)? I’d love to see the original article get into his inbox.
