I was just a wee thing and started out as a Flyers fan back in 1979 or so. (I’ve since been treated with strong antibiotics and I feel much better.) I remember talk in 81-82 about the Rockies moving to NJ and started to follow them with some excitement. I even have a few newspaper scraps that might still be around. So I’d welcome a Rockies throwback. For me that is where it all started and we owe Colorado, and maybe even KC, a special thanks for being silly enough to let this team go! Okay, I kid…. But I’d still like a Rockies retro jersey honoring the Devs past. I think I would want a “Lanny McDonald was almost a Devil” sort of jersey. I thought he was awesome as a kid. Only problem is, Colorado is already wearing a Rockies throwback. If we do that now, we get criticized as being unoriginal, even though it was our own franchise's jersey. That said, a blue, yellow and red Devils jersey would pay tribute to both without being a duplicate of what Colorado has going on. I am not saying I like that idea, just that it is an idea.
