    MLS Kits 2019

    Regarding Zulily, I just hate that they are part of the growing online dystopia where all your data is mined for profit and your privacy is breached so that ads can pop up for a brand of shoe you looked at 3 minutes ago. Increasingly online reviews are faked, AI is being used in comments and everything is low quality crap sold at a higher margin because online retailers like Amazon had built a good reputation they are well on their way to tearing down. The Sounders have been something of an enigma the past few years... they’ve started the past three seasons horribly and then go absolutely bonkers in the second half and made the playoffs. They won MLS cup despite being the less talented team in that match and then ran out of steam in the final and quarters the last two years. There is a recognition that the team’s salaries are being held back by MLS who controls all contracts centrally. When you draw 40k a night you can afford 3 DPs but they would only field 2 big money DPs and then always say Ozzie Alonso was magically the third even though his contract always floated on the borderline. They are also left out of the running for most big “name” players, with Dempsey the notable exception (even then they were forced to trade fan favorite Steve Zakuani). Off the field they fired popular broadcaster Ross Fletcher for reasons completely unknown and replaced him with card-carrying Timbers supporter Keith Costigan. In eastern Washington it’s easier to watch the Timbers on ROOT than it is the Sounders. They need to build their own stadium or force the stadium to put in grassmaster or another surface that doesn’t allow LAG to push the false narrative their artificial turf causes more injuries. Ok, rant over. Someday I believe we can rid ourselves of the scourge of jersey ads, but it has to be done at the international level so no one has an unfair advantage.

    S2 should be rebranding to Tacoma soon... I would anticipate a more locally based sponsor there.

    Zulily must be ponying up some major $$$ for this. I’m sad because all the chatter locally is they are an awful company to work for. Oh, and the logo sucks. At least Xbox resonated with gamers who might just randomly choose to play as the Sounders on FIFA

    Me too! And I’m a Sounder supporter. I think the Sounders need to refresh our colors... brighten the green a bit. I would say darken the blue but I actually really love that shade. Also: If Austin goes burnt orange with their secondary kit they instantly become my 2nd favorite MLS side.

    I want to go on record that I hate Steelheads, as our city already had a very bad super bowl experience against a “steel” team

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    *Nike sees perfect color combo* Hmm... how can we add gray and black to this to impress 17 year old kids with no sense of style?

    It’s amazing how much Nike controls the narrative with uniform trends. Because of color rush, they convinced schools and even other uniform suppliers that monochrome sells (or sells recruits), even though there’s no concrete evidence to back that up. Oregon doesn’t even have to look good to make people pay attention, although this combo is about as good as they can look in their current set. Watch next year as they extend the huge number fad to even more schools.

    I actually like it, as far as monochrome goes. What makes me mad is all the gray, which is just unnecessary and doesn’t pop nearly as well as white. And yet Nike has the nerve to make the swooshes white so they stand out more!

    Safeco Field is now T-Mobile Park

    Safeco got such a sweet deal on their original sponsorship, I want to say it was just a couple mil for 20 years. That was before the big boom in stadium sponsorship dollars. Its pretty insulting to the taxpayers who paid for much of the stadium to deck it out in T Mobile magenta... but then again the Mariners have never hesitated to sell out the community for a few bucks. To be fair, the marketing job does one heck of a job polishing this turd of a franchise. The ‘95 Mariners are more revered than probably either of the Marlins actual world championship teams.

    Regarding ND: - I’ll take the thin numbers any day over Nike’s MEGANUMBERS. -I like the metallic gold trim, which is a classy way to do a one-off playoff uniform -However, if you’re going to do that, why on earth do you still have matte pants? It’s now metallic/metallic/matte when I think the pants should match. Although in reality maybe that’s too shiny?

    I don’t think they are going to be red. But, something that always annoys me: Half of WSU alumni are from western Washington. It drives me crazy when people imply Seattle is singularly devoted to UW. There’s also Seattle U which is literally black and red.

    It’s great for the Apple Cup but I don’t like it full time. Needs to be paired with gray pants, ideally.

    Please please please. Regarding the navy helmets: Just because a certain look or color has been around for decades doesn’t mean it’s good (see the Cowboys’ green pants)
