    1) St. Louis- The helmet is a bit busy, but the colours work well together and it's a pretty clean look.

    2) New York- This would be #1 but the monochrome black knocks it down.

    3) DC Defenders- It's a very simple identity, but it's also very clean. Again, held back by monochrome.

    4) Dallas Renegades- It's very vibrant and very fun. I like how the colours work together, it's just...monochrome.


    I wouldn't be surprised to see a fair bit of switching of pants and jerseys between the sets as the season wears on. I don't expect full-time monochrome from all the teams showcasing it tonight.

  2. Three black jerseys and two red ones in an 8-team league isn't good planning. Navy and black are a little too prevalent, again, just as they were in '01. That time around, the primary jersey breakdown was 2 black, 2 red, 2 purple, 1 navy, and 1 teal, with 4 of the 5 teams who didn't feature black or navy up top using it on their pants.

  3. Seattle seems like what the Amsterdam Admirals would be if NFL Europe still existed. Love the helmet, but the rest could be a lot better. The two biggest disappointments so far are probably Seattle and Tampa, which are honestly the two identities I thought could look best, at least based on my personal tastes.


    Anyone "epic fail"-ing this launch as a whole needs something better to get upset about. There's a fair bit of good and a lot of decent on display here. It's not like we're witnessing early 2010s Russell Athletic here, or early 2019 AAF, for that matter.

    Champion would probably be perfect for this league, but either they're not interested or Vince didn't think they were big-time enough for his special project.


    Champion outfitted XFL 1.0. I don't know who owns the brand now - is it still Sara Lee? - but it's possible that was not the best of partnerships. Champion basically disappeared from pro sports after that.

    Seeing as though the XFL is owned by Vince McMahon, I would not be surprised if the uniforms are "flashy" to the point where most of us will call it ugly. 


    Most of the XFL 1.0 uniforms had a lot of traditional uniform elements. The names were wacky, but most of the uniforms wouldn't look out of place in the NFL of the day. Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Birmingham, and NY/NJ all kept things fairly straightforward, and the wildest thing San Francisco had were the Bronco stripes Demon horns.

    Hm, the internet loved Bill Peters to death when all they knew about him was that he made the Hurricanes take lots of bad-angle shots and still finish bottom-third in scoring.


    You say the N-word to your black player a few times and hit some of your other players a few times nowadays, and next thing ya know, here comes the Woke SJW Cancel Culture for ya. Smarten up!

  8. White, black, hot pink, aqua. That's four uniforms, so congratulations, Miami, there's your new primary set. You get to wear each of them for 20 games, and whatever inferior red/black unis you want for those other two.

    Hold the phone. They're wearing these 28 :censored:ING TIMES. TWENTY. EIGHT. 35% of their games, and damn near every game in January and March, will have the team wearing a uniform with something that NOBODY outside of Brooklyn has even the slightest clue what it means. Jesus H. Christ.


    It's like the Bulls wearing "CHATHAM" for a third of the year because that's where Chance hails from. Look, there's just far too many uniforms, and especially too many one-season uniforms, and the anti-system system where everything and nothing is an alternate leads to far more misses than hits. Nike needs to dial it the hell down.

    This is neither here nor there, but why are they going back to Soldier Field anyway?


    Bridgeview was Soccer Glendale, and after a few years of trying, they finally found a way to break the lease that everyone could live with. There's nowhere else in the market for them to play but Soldier.


    Anyway, the Fire's Supporter of the Year and Entire Focus Group sees what the real problem is here:


  11. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that this was Rodriguez's intended identity for renaming the club as Chicago City FC, but when changing the name of the club got lambasted far and wide, he backpedaled a bit, crossed out "City" and wrote in "Fire." The whole notion of "fire reflected in the past" sticks with me.


    The good news for @Brian in Boston is that I don't think we have to worry about too many people wearing CFFC gear out in public, the way this is all going.
