  1. 2018 MLS Kits

    No, it's why MLS should either (a) bring third kits in or (b) ensure that either a team's home or away kit clashes with every other team in the league's kit.

    That's just not true. Southampton's home and road kits this year provide plenty of contrast to each other -- the red/white home kit and the black/green away kit don't clash at all. Yet neither design clashes with Bournemouth's red and black kit. So we got this kit as a one-off instead:

    You beat me to the response -- it's not about how the kits clash with each other (and dark green against black isn't something I'd sign up for in the first place, personally), but how they clash with everyone else's home kits. If you aren't going to have a third kit, either your home or away should clash well with every other club in the league's. Those Revs and Union matches were brutal to watch, and trips to Colorado haven't been fun recently, either. If MLS really cared about kits clashing, they wouldn't have let the Timbers have a predominantly black away kit when they had a dark green home shirt. On past experience alone, I don't think MLS would stand in the way of LAFC having a darkish grey away kit.

    This is MLS we're talking about, which has allowed the Timbers to only have a dark green kit and a predominantly black kit for the last few seasons.

    Because they traded a dude who's maybe going to retire in two or three months so he could finish his career in the city he belongs in -- the point wasn't to get anything in return, it was to do right by one of the best players this game's ever seen.

    The Nets pick is a half-game from being a guaranteed top-six pick in a draft where there are six really good prospects available. A game out from having the best odds at No. 1. That pick has more value than any player the Cavs could've traded it for, and I'm glad they held onto it. I think that the Cavs have actually positioned themselves decently for LeBron heading into this summer, too -- it's now hard to argue that it's only downhill from here. If this team is able to get back to the Finals, I think it shows that this is still (for all its faults) his best shot.
  8. “The vice-chairman said he is willing to use fan ideas for the club's rebrand, so long as the new design does not include the club’s actual name” sure doesn’t sound particularly reasonable, and is just as true of a phrase.

    Yeah, we're not doing this again.

    I'm guessing those are Whitecaps players who did a shirt swap with Rowdies players after full-time. For example, when Villa won the European Cup, a number of their players were in Bayern shirts for the celebrations:
  12. Ah, yes, finally found the standard “a founding member of the American League that’s worn navy in every one of its 117 seasons and used red alongside of it for each of the last 85 years should change its colors” argument in a thread about the Indians identity!
  13. I am pleased with this news. Gonna be a whole lot of stupid this year, probably, but hopefully those people in the fan base will eventually move on. Broadly speaking, I think the 1948 Indians look (last World Series win) is pretty damn close to the best the franchise has ever looked (if not the best): It's a shame the club went away from the wishbone C in the '70s -- they couldn't bring it back now because it'd be seen as a Reds ripoff at this point -- because I think it's the best cap logo they've ever had. Broadly, though, I think the '48 set gets the color balance almost spot-on for the Tribe -- I'd go with red socks and accents at home, perhaps, but I think bringing back red text on the away jersey (and sticking with the red bill) would really help the color balance with the away jerseys. I'm really, really afraid the club's just going to wear red caps at home and call it a day, which I'd hate. I think this works just fine for both jerseys, especially if they'd go red outlined in navy for the road set:
  14. Leeds United New Crest

    Yeah, I think the Crew badge is well done, but there's pretty much nothing about it that actually feels relevant -- you could slap any other club's name and colors onto that logo, change the 96 to whatever the last two digits of that club's founding year was, and it probably wouldn't look out of place. This isn't to say that all logos need to be overly unique -- they don't -- but they should at least be specific to something that has to do with the club. The only design element that is particularly unique or special to the Crew is the shape of the old logo that's a minor part of the new crest, which is why it feels bland or generic.
