  1. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Reminds me way too much of those old yellow Newcastle kits when they got relegated in 2009. Gggh.
  2. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    Did you forget 1998 to 2001 where are primary away color was red? US supporters were clamoring for a red kit after the 2002 World Cup set came out and started a blue trend that continued to 2009 when Nike went with that terrible anthracite kit. There was the limited edition DTOM kit worn in Hartford for the send-off match in 2006 and the fans snapped them up in no time. Then the red alternate to the 2010 set was released in 2011 and fans loved it as well. The 2012 home shirt was the red/white hooped "Waldo" kits and then there were the 2014 bomb pops that were primarily red. Whick is to say that Nike is all over the place with US kit design.

    I know around here we (the Revolution fanbase) were not particularly fond of the 2010 home kit when it came out because we felt they were trying to emulate the look of the Patriots, especially with the addition of silver which had never been a part of the primary kit color scheme at any point in their existence.

    Yeah, I did think of Portland when I saw the clash. That said, compare these two: The Revs' jersey just looks incomplete in comparison. It's missing the red trim on the right sleeve and the red sleeve on the left. Add in a navy collar and you'd have a real winner there.

    If only that's what the Revs actually wore. what could have been. That Feyenoord jersey is a true harlequin with each and every element an inverted color of the opposite side. It's perfect.

    It was actually against San Jose. 7/6/13.

    Anyone else think these look like hospital gowns?

  9. Best looking college hockey jerseys/uniforms?

    As a fellow UML guy, I think the last revision was a huge upgrade (particularly with regard to the name & number font), but the wordmark on the chest is holding them back from looking great. And the Rowdy alternate logo isn't much better. I liked the vertically arched "Lowell" workmark set. Would love to see them adapt that to the current UA template they are using.
  10. New Finland hockey jerseys

    These are for the upcoming IIHF World Championships to be held during the NHL playoffs. Warrior branding inside the collar above the laces.

    From the Revolution's COO, when asked about the resemblance to the PSG design:

    If you're first thought seeing this isn't "Minions", you're doing it wrong.
  13. 2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

    Yeah, I was one of the people on top of this when we discovered it Friday afternoon. One of our members saw a twitter post from ESPN with the Bangladeshi Premier Cricket League standings and noticed that one of the team logos looked awfully familiar. As one of the people involved in the design process for the Midnight Rider's logo (it was a collaborative and iterative efforts between five of us), I got a real kick out of this. So completely random.

    Here's a closer look at the socks, from when I was at the Revs' unveiling last week: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0PQ38hV0pCmTGVRSE5NeFFNakk/view?usp=sharing That's the first I've seen of the trees on the Revolution's socks! That's a really cool detail!

    I'll be there. Coming down from Boston Friday night.
  16. Lehigh Football Uniforms Through The Years

    Go Engineers, I mean Mountain Hawks! (You going to the game at the Stadium?)
  17. Lehigh Football Uniforms Through The Years

    As a 1998 Lehigh graduate, a Mountain Hawk is a poor excuse for an Engineer replacement. Why exactly was the Engineer name ditched? (Sorry if this is a simple answer or easily found via Google) The reason we were given at the time is that the school wanted to shed it's image as a strictly engineering school and help emphasize the business and arts schools with a more (literally and figuratively) generic name. And for the record, I received my BS in Civil Engineering there. And I hate the Mountain Hawks name.

  19. UMass Lowell new hockey uniforms

    I'm a UML alum as well and personally I think this new set is an upgrade. Last year it looked like they updated the nameplates to a standard block font from the previous font, but kept the same font for the numbers, which just din't really work for me. I like the new font much better, just for the fact that it's not italicized alone. That said, still not a fan of the stacked wordmark for the crest. I'd prefer they go back to the arched "LOWELL" across the front instead.

  22. 2014 FIFA World Cup

    I highly doubt FIFA will allow orange vs. yellow. It did happen in '98 but during the last Cup Brazil wore blue kits. Therefore, I believe this will the combo. I've got to think the Dutch will wear their blue set and the Aussies will wear their gold kit for this one.

  25. NHL Stadium Series Jerseys

    Usually I'm not a fan of the Kings in purple and gold, but this would have been a perfect matchup.Is that Cuba Gooding Jr.? What the...? Yes it is. He thinks he's cool and hangs around hockey, like he's relevant. No, I think he just likes hockey like any other hockey fan. If he was trying to be seen hockey would be the last sport to go to as a celebrity. Cuba Gooding Jr. has played in Denis Leary's Celebrity Hat Trick charity game in the past. I believe I saw him play in the 2003 edition at the Worcester Centrum.
