  1. I don't see it taking off anytime soon, but it would be nice to see a few matches on TV every now and again. I miss the good old days of ESPN when you could see a Rugby match or Aussie Rules game when they didn't have anything big in American Sports to show. As an aside, did anyone watch the Travel Channel Show Dhani Tackles the Globe this week? He (Dhani Jones) played Rugby for Blackheath in England. Kind of interesting to compare and contrast American Football and Rugby.
  2. This may be nitpicking, but I don't think those teams wear pin stripes. Those are thick (wide) vertical stripes. Pin stripes are what the New York Yankees wear. Very thin vertical stripes. Vertical stripes, such as the ones you mention, are worn by a few national sides and countless clubs as well. Pin stripes on the the other hand, are almost unheard of on a national team's kit. That's why I like the idea so much. It sets the kit apart and makes it instantly recognizable. ...so, not arguing with you. Just clarifying...I think. I can think of at least 2 recent international soccer kits with pinstripes. Scotland had a pinstripe strip made by Fila a few years ago, and didn't Spain have a pinstripe outfit not so long ago as well. In the 80s adidas had a template that was used by quite a few international teams that had pinstripes. (Off the top of my head Northern Ireland, Russia, France, West Germany all had at least either a home or away shirt that incorporated pinstripes in the 1982 World Cup) Spain was the only one I could think of. In each of these cases, it was more of a one off. Not an indelible part of the kit, like Holland wearing all orange, or Argentina's sky blue and white stripes. Any team could incorporate pin stripes into their kit, but none (that I know of) are known for wearing them.
  3. Sure does. If those are the elements they want, I would have gone with something like this. Kinda rough, but you get the idea. Personally, I wouldn't go quite so Queens-heavy, especially since they don't play in Queens and don't claim to represent Queens more than any other borough. But I like the crown. Not that you asked for C&C, but that's a really good start. Just a thought, if you plan to work any further with it, have you considered losing the banner? It might look better underneath the crest, like Everton/Middlesborough, et al. You could make the flowers the focal point by switching their position with the soccer ball. Again, you didn't ask for it, but I hope you don't mind a few thoughts.
