Dallas Stars New Uniforms
Dallas Stars New Uniforms
I see Jim Lites, after supervising the destruction of the Texas Rangers wonderful and very striking red uniforms, has decided to introduce a rather garish new alternate uniform for the Dallas Stars, a new uniform that is shown here and was used for the first time tonight in a 4-2 win over the Washington Capitals. I have to say, the last time the Stars introduced a third jersey was when they introduced what is now the main home jersey – it used to be their “third”. I’m not against uniform change per se. I’m a fan of consistancy, but if you have something that is truly good, then by all means, go for it.
But I cannot say I’m happy with this one. From the news story on the Stars site I link to above..
“The new logo depicts a constellation of individual stars aligning to form an unstoppable force of nature, a charging bull. Get it? A constellation of stars aligning to form an unstoppable force? “
Excuse me? What kind of crap is that? It’s a hockey uniform. Tom Hicks owns the Dallas Stars, the Texas Rangers, and the Mesquite Rodeo. Perhaps someone got confused and really meant this for the Rodeo folks. That’s about all I can come up with.
I really do NOT like this new uniform. They always say online and sports fans are full of knee-jerk reactions, and over time I could grow to be OK with it. But I tend to doubt it – it’s nowhere near as striking and beautiful as the current uniform was when it was first introduced. This reminds me of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks uniform – which I’m not fond of, either. I understand the desire to do a Texas themed thing, and that’s fine – but this constellation garbage? It probably could have been just “OK” with the bull on there, but the constellation nonsense needs to go. P.U.
And yes, I realize I’m “registering my disgust on the Internet” just like Comic Book guy on the Simpsons – no need to point that out. :)

Dang, I’d completely forgotten it was Lites that got rid of the beautiful Ranger Red unis. You’ll note, of course, that we haven’t been back to the playoffs since the return to the days of Turnpike Stadium blue.
One thing I always loved about the Stars is that they adapted their North Star-look to the Texas-themed Lone Star, and that they didn’t try to change their colors. Green and gold was a refreshing combination, and they stood out well on the sports scene here. Now all I can think of is the hayseed phrase “hog on ice.” I doubt a bull would fare much better. Hockey is about speed and grace and flair, not a durn charging bull.
doesn’t it kinda look like a uterus to you?
Hi, sorry to disagree with you but I like the new uniform although I dont know why they incorporated that red color. I imagine the bull represents Taurus the bull (the constellation)although the Taurus constellation outlines the head and body of the bull versus only the face on the uniform.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE DALLAS STARS? A MAD COW ON THEIR JERSEY? YA LIKE ANYONE WANTS WEAR A COW OM THEIR CHEST? AND WHAT’ THAT ON THE BOTTOM? BULL $#!*
Why would anyone want a woman’s reproductive system on their uniform???????
