With the Jersday Thursday designs being released, it’s time for another article where we ask the fans what they think about the designs.

All the fans asked are part of the Facebook group REAL BROOKLYN CYCLONES FANS.

The Back to the Future one is hideous, and the vest portion covers pretty much anything identifying Brooklyn or the Cyclones. Also not a big fan of the BKLYN appearing on multiple Jerseys. The Original Road and Road Trip Jerseys are the best.

10262204_10203828747825625_6124204116123425094_nI think this year’s designs are disappointing. Clearly somebody loves the “BKLYN” element, but it just seems like a lazy way of referring to the borough. I give points to the “Back to Future” Jersey for doing something different, but it fails for hiding the team identification. The 2001 Road Jersey is the best of the bunch, and longtime fans probably own an authentic style one.

The 2001 Road Jersey and Road Trip Jersey are probably the top 2 best. We can all agree the Back to the Future one is hideous. The Black & Red Jersey as well as the Pinstripe Jersey are decent.

The Original Road and Road Trip Jerseys are nice as well as the Irish Jersey. The rest leave a lot to be desired.

I personally don’t mind the Jersey Thursday but I am getting sick and tired of seeing them do an Irish Jersey every year. They need to pick a different nationality to do a Jersey. In the 15 years the team has been around they have done 2 Jewish Heritage Jerseys, but never as a giveaway. You had to try and win them or spend $100 in the Store. They have done more Irish and Italian night Jerseys than anything else.

From all the Jersey designs for this season I like both the 2001 Road Jersey & Road Trip Jersey. Also, I actually like the Back to the Future Jersey.

The Road Jersey is a classic. The Back to the Future Jersey covers the Cyclones logo. Put a Cyclones logo it on the left side of the chest (on Marty’s orange vest) & it’s perfect. The Black & Red Jersey by Verizon is so-so. Do away with the Irish Jersey. How about a Latino Jersey? The Road Trip & Pinstripe Jerseys are perfect. As for the Classic BKLYN Jersey, why is it so hard to write BROOKLYN? Why do they keep shortening it?

The Road Jersey is a nice idea, but I already got one. The Back to the Future Jersey needs to have a Cyclones logo that is more visible. The chest idea mentioned above by Jose is good. The Verizon Black & Red bit was done in 2012 & 2013 already. Try a different design that is white with black & red lettering. As nice as this Irish Jersey is, they need to spell out Brooklyn. But, I think after 5 years, let’s try something different. I’d love to see a Jewish Jersey. The Road Trip Jersey is very nice. However, I do not think it will be our new road uniforms. The Pinstripe Jersey is nice, but being a pullover might make it unpleasant to wear in hot weather. The Classic BKLYN Jersey is nice as well, but like Paul and others, I do not like how they shorten Brooklyn to BKLYN.

I love the designs for this year. My favorite is the throwback road design.

I think that the designs this year are ok but the jersey designs this year are not as better as the last couple of years in my opinion. But I do like 2 of the jerseys this year. The ones that I like are the 2001 Road Jersey and the Road Trip Jerseys and those are the winners in my book.

Very disappointing. The Cyclones had opportunity to re-issue classic special uniforms like Sweet & Low Breast Cancer Awareness. I have repeatedly suggested replica of the ’13 Jewish Heritage jersey. I offered to allow them to use my jerseys if they didn’t have the prototypes due to Sandy damage. Parrothead/Hawaiian jerseys were good too. They already did the replica of the road jersey for Jersey Thursday a few years ago. I know they probably can’t do the Star Wars jersey, but that would be a great reprint. Barack-lyn Jersey was great too-it made Cooperstown & sold out in minutes! The Further jersey was such a hit they did a reprint

I have been an avid Cyclones fan since 2001. In December of 2013 I decided to launch my own blog "Brooklyn Baseball Banter" to cover the Brooklyn Cyclones.

    I really like these articles. Some sites don’t care what fans think, but the way you do it shows fans that their opinion matters and gives some recognition that they deserve.
