    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    I hate the fact that I absolutely love this At least Puma's made one kit good enough for me to cop every year.

    Leeds United New Crest

    Regardless, it's not sticking. LUFC Managing Director Angus Kinnear just told a local station they're reopening the consultation process for the crest. It makes sense regardless of whether or not you like the logo, because this was a PR fiasco. 16,000 fans had signed a petition to change it within 2 hours. The internet has been destroying it ever since they unveiled it.

    Leeds United New Crest

    Yes, Leeds' old logo is generally ugly and cluttered. Yes, Leeds have never had a great logo to go on. That's not an excuse to pull something like this out. Is the salute an identifiable, and personal symbol of the club? To a degree, yes. But the white rose of Yorkshire is also a much better symbol for the largest club in Yorkshire, and it looks ridiculously better. Some guy on twitter literally just switched the fan for the rose and the logo looked like an upgrade over the previous ones. I really do hope Leeds take his idea, otherwise they'll have one of the worst logos in England.
  4. To think a team from a media market outside the top 15 in the U.S. would be close to the top of merchandise sales and popularity is very surprising - hard to think of a team in real U.S. sports that could punch that far above their proverbial weight (Packers? St. Louis Cardinals? Spurs?) For comparison, the Broncos, with 3 championships and a relatively storied history, are the 13th most valuable team in the NFL. The Cents could arguably push top 5 - I guess that would just be down to a perfect set of conditions - Colorado's the only team with multiple championships in the western U.S. (LA, San Diego, and Seattle all have 1) I wonder what the five "biggest" franchises in the AFA would be? I'd probably have New York, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Colorado, and Washington in some order, but Minnesota and Cincinnati probably have a shout. (Apart from New York, the power markets - LA, Chicago, Boston, Philly have all really underperformed)
  5. Well, I really do think now is the time to put the horse down. This core seems to be done. Any franchise QB's in this draft the Cents can start to move assets around for?
  6. If any city is able to represent that free-spirit style, it's Portland.
  7. Well, that VB was interesting. I'm glad Portland lost and looked thuggish in the process. I'm guessing their nationally-televised behavior won't win them very many fans, and that's more fans heading to a team that would probably dominate it's local area (CO,WY,UT,) as well as being surrounded by opponents with less history (AZ,POR,SEA,CAL) In fact, i'd be willing to wager the Centennials are the most popular AFA team in the West, what with their environment and track record of success. And speaking of the Cents, what's their plan for the offseason? Tear it down and trade up for a franchise QB, or reload for one last run with Blitz's boys?
  8. I get the unfortunate feeling this might be the last hurrah for Tom Blitz and this current core. And even though the Guardians have looked unbeatable, i still remember the Cents that did go unbeaten and lost in the first round... Cents over Ghosts in the VB, with The Guardians upset in the semifinals.
  9. Also, Totally forgot about the blue-jersey thing. I'm sure a lot of people in Colorado think blue is a cursed color, what after all the postseason disappointments they've suffered wearing them. I could honestly see the Cents phasing out the blue jerseys for red or gold full-time, just on the grounds of superstition.
  10. I know that feel, Miners fans... This postseason is definitely the weirdest i've seen in the AFA's history, but it's also one to tell your grandkids about. Cents Reminded how much a good QB takes a team. Ken Hughes is probably wishing he could lace'em up again...
  11. Hey Guys Not gonna lie, I haven't looked at this page in quite a while, and I was wondering coming into this season whether or not we were gonna make the playoffs. Boy was I in for a surprise... Now, I think Tom Blitz is my favorite player of all time, and we're a QB away from a Dynasty. Good times in the Centennial State. Senator Ken Hughes is currently lobbying a bill to make Jan 15th Tom Blitz day in Colorado, Honoring (probably) the most legendary run in AFA history. It's expected to pass. Finally, can someone tell me how to attach a sig again? it's been so long since I've updated and my potato mind can't figure out the process again.
  12. This is too reminiscent of the Broncos these last 2 seasons... I can tell we missed the do't-screw-it-up -ability of JBG. How's the AFA Siemian doing in his first year?
  13. Ok, so since these have (somehow) gotten even better, do you mind if i request another one? Tim Howard in Colorado Rapids jersey, please. These are works of art. Also, take your time and do your projects well. I'm in the same struggle right now.
