  1. International Football 2017-2018

    I've been to Chile recently and everyone out there said after the back to back Copa America's the players wanted a lot of money to play for the national team and showed no passion. That said, when they acused Bolivia of using the irregular player they got 2 points and Peru got 3 points from their loss. If it wasn't for that Chile would finish in 5th place above Peru.

    Normally they are. National teams tend to change kits every 2 years

    If chilean players actually cared for the national team and not for money after the Copa America title they would go trough. And even with that, if they didn't accuse Bolivia of playing with a irregular player and get their points from that game they would also get trough, because Peru would have 3 less points. Ecuador was just horrible, they did not deserve to play the World Cup. Where the US academies actually that way (pay-to-play)? If that is the case, that may be the biggest problem for creating football culture in the US. It should be a rich kids sport, not at all.

    In the start maybe, but with some time it would make CONCACAF teams better. And still, Mexico is the only country in the americas that can compete money-wise with brazilian football (unless the US drops salary caps and simply destroy everyone).

    Really, to invest in football culture the MLS should realy drop the "american league" stuff and do divisions. You can keep the playoffs but have 2, 3 divisions, and a relegation system. Also would be good for you guys if CONCACAF and CONMEBOL would just merge and start a unified version of the Libertadores, with the whole continent.

    Still, it's Trindad & Tobago, a MLS teams should be enough to beat them. But I didn't follow your qualifiers so I shouldn't know.

    Lol, how can a country like the US not qualify on CONCACAF? Shocking
  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    This is worse:

    Flamengo had that as an avaiable shirt before the eSports team, I think it was the same thing for all the top 6 adidas teams

    I was not sure where to post this, but we have no specific topic for eSports. Flamengo has unveiled their new eSports team and the jerseys are great (they are the black ones): Wish Adidas used this template more on actual uniforms other than Orlando Pirates

    Here is how both teams looked on the final yesterday: I hate how those sleeve sponsors ruin patch aplications
  13. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Flamengo and Cruzeiro will use a finals patch on the sleeve and the matchday on the chest for the first leg of the brazilian cup tonight: If I'm not mistaken it's the first time teams will use a sleeve patch for any domestic competition in Brazil
  14. NBB by Nike 16/17 Season - Bauru Added

    GOCIL BAURU BASKET Starting off this series with a big one: Bauru. Current champions of the NBB, they also recently won both the Liga de las Americas (Latin America's Euroleague) and Liga Sudamericana, the two FIBA South/Latin America tournments. Also losing to Real Madrid in the Intercontinental Cup by point difference in 2015, after a win on the first game and a loss at the second. Here is the colors I went with as theirs, adding black after some special kits they wore on game 4 of last year finals and bringing back blue, their old main color, on this dark shade they used when they won the Liga de las Americas in 2014: Home Association Uniform: Pretty basic stuff, used green as the main secondary color as it should be, but tried to mix some orange as well. Dragon scales on the side panels. Road Icon Uniform: Still simple stuff, almost reverse colors of the previous one, but using more orange. Alternate Athletes Mindset Uniform: Based on some special uniforms they used on the finals last year, I went with an all black look and got the dragon scales on the whole body instead of just the side panels. Community Uniform: For this one I went with a cleaner take on the uniforms they used when they won the 2014 Liga de las Americas. I just love that color combination. Here is what they wore on that competition as a reference: For the throwback I used this two colors: And this are the uniforms, based on the 2002 uniforms (they was still named Tilibra/Copimax) in wich they won their only brazilian championship untill this year: 2002 uniforms as a reference: And last but not least the training uniforms:
  15. This is mysecond take on a series I started two years ago that ended very briefly The NBB, or Novo Basquete Brasil (New Basketball Brazil on a free traslation) is the major brazilian basketball league. Founded on 2009, the league is entering it's 10th edition on 2016/17, the third one under a fairly recent NBA partnership. With that in mind and as a brazilian and a huge basketball fan myself I decided to go a little further and imagine this partnership reaching uniform supply as well, fitting nike for the league, since the swoosh brand is taking on the american league itself this season. A brief history of the NBB: The NBB relation with the NBA on court: The project: My project is simple, it consists on making new uniforms for all the 15 NBB teams, and maybe teams from lower leagues and teams from the past will be up next. The rules are the following: - Every team must have four uniforms (Association, Icon, Athletes Mindset and Community) - Some selected teams will also receive a throwback uniform adapted to the current template - All uniforms will follow the new nike templates for the NBA, adapted to the NBB, this includes the use of only one sponsor on the uniforms, positioned such as in the NBA - All teams will have at least one training uniform made, following the new NBA template - All kits must contain the nike swoosh on both the front of the shirt and the left side of the shorts and the NBB logo on the back - I will set some Pantone colors for the teams in order to maintain or create a proper identity and keep them unique
