Okay, here's my take: It's the same jersey just creme-colored instead of white. Wow. They kept the drop-shadow so they can wear in with the black/blue hat and the black socks and undershirts (ugh). That doesn't seem all that "retro" to me. My ideal Mets uniforms would be as such: Pinstripe uni with blue hats, undershirts, and socks; road gray with BLUE hats, undershirts, and socks. For a third I would go with a blue jersey maybe with Mets in orange lettering outlined in white again with blue hats, etc. If you want to keep the black only wear the solid black hat with the black uniform. No mixing! And no black hat with the blue brim! The solid white uni is alright and should again be worn with blue hats, etc. And now we're up to what? 100 uniforms?
I'm hearing a lot of this kind of comment. Since the black isn't going away nor is the dropshadow...I think the franchise would be wise to park the blue/black hybrid hats. Those look the worst of all. If you must wear a black jersey just pair it with the all-black cap. It's slightly less an abomination.
So basically, nothing happened last year in the eyes of Mets officials. Wonder how long it takes em to realize their phones aren't ringing. It seriously must be nice to be rich enough to run something into the ground with no regard for common sense!
If you are canceling your plan(s), please don't just rip up the invoice. Invest the 43 cents and let the Metsknow why.
I'm sending back my two invoices, my obstructed-view ticket from Section 504, and a note that I will not enter any plan unless the seats are unobstructed, behind home plate, include only 13 Friday or Saturday games, and request a full refund for my obstructed seat, a refund for my ticket---including fees, and a 40% reduction off the current seat prices. (My ticket partner has already rejected renewing his half of any deal; he'll root for the Mets, but will shift his hopes to the BoSox).
I plan to have some comments about the ticket plans around lunchtime. I haven't really gotten to take a look. Thanks to Dan for getting that info up last night.
This is a typical Mets move. They tell us fans they hear us and understand our concerns then try to pass this "retro uni" off on us. It is not retro. It is not what most fans wanted. We want one classic (white pins, blue cap no black anywhere) home uniform and one classic (gray blue cap no black anywhere) road uniform. I can't take it anymore, they make themselves look more foolish each year.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.
