Sixers back in Blue

In today's 'tiser.

Sorry, don't know how to do links!!

Looks like SOS is doing everything possible to forget last season and reverting back to blue. I think the season has a good feel about it already and can only get better when the imports are announced.

Just get a uniform and stick with it - all the iconic teams in sports have a uniform and the only change are subtle variations ... what Sixers uniforms stick in our mind? Not many - maybe the 1986 uni and the one that we won back to back titles in.

Haven't seen the Advertiser. Might see something on computer later today or tomorrow.

I seem to recall - AND1 or sponsoring NBL and supplying uniforms - may have something to with it.
Maybe.. ?

I noticed we are training in blue (and yellow)

I think it makes sense - too many other teams in red, no other teams in blue.

Blue makes sense...and it looks good too IMO.

Either way the 36ers still seem to change colour and uniforms every season.

Blue looks good and isn't as common amongst opposition teams.

I liked the red, matched ballingers hair! I would like to see us stick with a uniform rather than changing every year, I wont buy merchandise because they keep changing every year.

I don't mind the blue but I disapprove of the wildcats having a claim on the red. I think that right belongs to the sixers, Hawks and Tigers (red being those clubs original colours).

The wildcats original colours were black, gold and white til 1989 when through Emu/Swan sponsoring them they introduced the red then in 1995 Coke took over and they ditched the gold. I always like the black, gold and white.

That said, I understand why the wildcats would want to retain the red. I'm disappointed the sixers forfeited the right to use red many years ago.

I'm a big fan of this design. Judging by the Sixers email, its for the long term (sorry, I don't know how to make the quotes look nice!)

"...this move has been taken to ensure the 36ers stand alone in their look whilst still maintaining our state colours as part of the uniform, and will be a change for the long term."

Does anyone know how many more sponsors are to be added? Inevitably there must be a few more, I'm guessing HoodSweeney would be on there somewhere? Hopefully they don't clutter it up too much!

I like the new Uni. Just looks solid, much like the celtics/lakers jerseys, not to much going on, simple and effective.

Are they going to use white as the away color? maybe they could use the red for that? Not sure if that would create any clashes.

I quite like the blue look the club has published above and hope it can stick around for a bit. I'm still expecting more sponsors logos on there especially the 'Hood Sweeney'. Hopefully it's spaced out nicely and doesn't overshawdow the 36ers logo.

As another said and I agree with them. I also am relectant to buy and build a collection of merchandise as they change it every year.

As for the away strip. I wouldn't mind the yellow from 2 seasons ago, otherwise standard white is fine with me.

I like this new one and hope it stays for a few seasons. Matches most milk cartons too.

I'm a fan of simple but effective, so it gets my vote.

Some trivia; was the shift from red to blue because of Pura Milk sponsorship?

Kickz 101 is pushing to range the whole leagues uniforms and will be selling authentic New Era NBL caps, since Fiddes distributes And 1 & New Era in Australia. The caps will be pretty basic not over the top I've heard.

Super happy about this. Sixers have been in blue sine I started following them and never liked red at all. Red has always been the colour of hated opponents (perth, melbourne in particular). Hope its royal blue rather than super dark navy that we had for a few years.

thats great news about kickz 101. they've barely ever had any NBL jerseys and dont even have nba jerseys lately so a full NBL jersey collection will be a great addiotion

what has happened to kickz lately? went in a few months back and they barely had any NBA merchandise. I basically saw 2 jerseys, one being the old black AI philly jersey.

I have seen a sneak preview and it's definitely not a dark blue. Maybe a touch darker than the 02 uniform? The stroke (outline) on "Adelaide" on the front of the white singlet is too heavy and could make it hard to read, but the white shorts look good and I think the blue should look decent all up.

Re Kickz, Too much player movement between February and August. You don't want to be left carrying Toronto or Cleveland playing tops with the names Bosh and James. Their demand goes down real quick if they were to leave their clubs and go to a team like...oh lets say Miami.

I imagine there will be a better selection come November.

@fill smythe yea, i'm pretty sure the blue and yellow were bought in to match pura skim or full cream milk cartons.

I dont mind the blue, but i would like to see a white away uniform, hated the yellow.

And a throw back to worn in a few games each year would be great, the back to back uniform or a Eagle Super Sixer uniform would be sweet. I remember hearin bullets were thinkin of doin it before they went under.

If we are the only team in blue...we should not have to wear an away strip.
If it doesn't clash, why change it.

Like the new uniform and change to blue,would be ideal though if each team had 3 different uniforms just like the Breakers last season.

Had a sneak peak and quite like the crisp look of the white one, agree with the font/outline as Isaac mentions.

The blue does seem a little lighter than previous versions.

And 1 to my knowledge is doing league wide uniforms. And 1 - Australia is run by Fiddes Sport which as mentioned also have the rights to New Era - Australia so some basic team colour hats may well make their way out ;)

I would say Kickz problem would be Adidas only offering the same NBA players as Footlocker and Rebel, were I think they want wider range of players and kids sizes like they've had before. Adidas minimums would be at a least 100 jerseys per player I'd say. That's a lot of stock to take.

Seen another photo of Ballinger wearing the uniform and it looks darker than the first shot I saw. Bit lighter than the darkest blue we've seen them in. Might need to wait to see them on court to get a proper look though.

Boti today:

the 36ers have been asked to shelve the red uniforms they played in last season due to an "epidemic" of red in the NBL.

They should get everyone a free T and encourage Blue outs much like united get people in red or the white out the heat did. It takes some time to build the idea and get people on board but looks cool.
