  1. 2017 MLS Kit Matchups

    Colorado probably wore the yellow kit to avoid the white shorts/(partly) powder blue socks clash. Clashes aren't only about the shirt.
  2. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    I like the Asheville City badge. Maybe it needs a third colour in there to make it pop a little, but its well executed.
  3. 2016 Olympics

    It helps that Justin Gatlin's clouded past makes him the villain in the story.
  4. Melbourne Storm Rebranded

    There's a difference between rugby and the sport the Melbourne Storm play (rugby league) so the logo needs a tweak.
  5. Brutalist buildings

    My alma mater, University of Queensland in Brisbane has a number of James Birrell designed brutalist style buildings; my accommodations at Union College perhaps being the best of them. Built from the late 1960s through the 70s it snakes through the existing trees from the site to prevent clearing. The original caravan style windows pictured above have now been replaced by more modern styles but the building remains otherwise the same. Some might find the concrete construction a little hard on the eyes, but when you see it amongst the very green landscape it's almost like a scene from some post-apocalyptic film where the forest has taken back over the city ruins.
  6. Euro 2016 uniform match-ups

    I'm coming around on the Nike kits. IF you have to do monochrome shirt/shorts the contrast socks give a nice bit of colour. But the sleeves are still stupid.
  7. Australian NBL signs with Mitchell and Ness

    Hard to maintain that throwback aesthetic and cram the usual 2-3 sponsors on to every piece of kit.
  8. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Banana custard!
  9. New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

    Only gripe is that the heraldic lion is hard to pull off without looking like so many other logos around the world. How well it stands out will depend on how the colours are used.
  10. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Looks a bit like Sampdoria's kits went for a lie down.
  11. 16-17 Soccer Kits

    Not that similar but the grey/fluoro gives flashbacks to this kit:
  12. 2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

    Looks like something you'd see handed out to volunteers at a 1980s World Expo.
  13. 2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

    Brisbane Roar unveiled their kits this week. Orange home kit is back to black shorts this season thankfully. White is the league away, grey is the cup away kit (which won't get a run as they were knocked out last night...). Strangely enough the home shirt is the same as the "one-off" kit worn vs Liverpool apart from the sponsor... I like the keeper kits, probably popping up everywhere this season in Umbro clubs?

    It might be red/white stripes but it just doesn't look like Sunderland... too much white.

    They might be aesthetically better, but it’s about the equivalent of giving Liverpool a hooped home shirt or white shorts. That thick red stripe with the white outline is PSG’s identity, as much as vertical stripes is for Barça, red shirts with white sleeves is for Arsenal, or all-red is for Liverpool. Actually Liverpools kit up to 1965 was to have white shorts with red and white striped socks. It was only when Bill Shankly took over they went all red. To say all red for Liverpool is factually incorrect. So you’re telling me Liverpool supporters would be pleased if the club came out with a kit including white shorts next season? If it was marketed as a throwback kit just like Arsenal did as the Redcurrant kit without the white sleeves then I doubt too much if it would cause controversy. Some (a minority of) fans complained when they moved the flames of remembrance from next to the badge to their own prominent spot on the back of the kit. It was bad enough that the adidas kits had "too much white on them" if you listen to some fans. There'd be riots if next season's kit had white shorts.
