  1. This is a really nice crest. A standard roundel, a little... safe, but well-designed, pleasing, unique in the universe of MLS, if not the world. Evocative of Bundesliga, as someone said, and that was what they were going for. Huge downgrade IMO.
  2. yup I remember that post. That looks good. Maybe even better would be to get rid of the green stripe altogether, just have the green sleeve caps. And like I said, I think the dark green looks good, as long as it's a nice rich hunter green like in the Curtis Martin photo above, rather than the mix of muddy greens they ended up with.
  3. I guess I'm in a tiny minority that much prefers the return-to-classic look of the Jets, including the darker green, before Nike took over and the colors got weird. The dark green and white had a nice frosty, unique look to it. If they could have just cleaned it up so the stripes weren't awkward and the greens were consistent, that would have been *chef's kiss*. I do like the new candy-apple helmet, in a vacuum, and I actually kinda like the black jersey-- would love to see it with white pants. But mostly I wish they did a modern version of:
  4. Agreed, this might be my favorite look of theirs, with plenty of dark blue, and orange trim. Love the flag tag (although the mosaic pigeon was best). And I miss Jack.
  5. Really hoping they go with this as primary and not the mono sky blue. Hate that look.
  6. Oh! Didn't realize that. Still, I refuse to get my hopes up. If the Amazon HQ development on the LIC waterfront had proceeded, I'd be more hopeful but Bezos probably wants nothing to do with NYC now...
  7. So it must be a team that hasn't undergone a redesign in the last 5 years? Or 4 I guess? Dammit, that means it's not the Jets...
  8. I prefer the dark blue over white too, because 1) I just like it better 2) it incorporates the dark blue of NYC's flag and 3) it is not a clone of Manchester City. On the other hand, KC sorta laid claim to light blue/dark blue first, and the sky blue/white shorts is unique to the league-- or was, until NYC and KC started swapping. In the end I will take white trim/shorts 10 out of 10 times over the mono-sky blue look, which I hate. But I would love to see a primary with a lot more dark blue and orange. Like the hypnokit. In the end I really dug that one.
  9. Another NYCFC image. Don't love the repeating monogram. Otherwise, I like it a lot.
  10. That is statistical significance. Cosmic forces are at play. We still don't understand the how, or the why. Can someone with a lab start testing hypotheses
  11. These look like a laundry accident.
  12. Hey ho, lifelong soccer fan from NYC here. I remember the Cosmos as a kid. MetroStars fan from 1996, but never really loved the (MetroMedia) identity, and when Red Bull bought them that was even worse. But they were the only local option. My kids grew up in NYC playing soccer, and Red Bull was the only (slightly embarrassing) local option. We were at the opening of Red Bull Arena in 2010. Watched awkwardly, disappointed, as Cosmos crashed and burned like Icarus. When NYCFC was announced in 2013 I was overjoyed-- yes it was a foreign, oil-money group (plus the Yankees at 20% lol), but they went all in on NYC identity and reached out to local clubs. Crest and branding was all about NYC, and beautiful to boot. . The club invested in infrastructure by building fields in the underserved communities in the 5 boroughs. I can tell you that a stadium is coming (I work for an engineering/environmental firm with knowledge of the project). Red Bull has mostly focused on northern NJ lately when it comes to their camps, clubs, and events. However, why on earth would Red Bull want to trade in NY for NJ, not in a million years would they do that. I don't blame them. But I am blue through and through. I love that I can jump on the subway to catch a match rather than have to brave the PATH train to NJ. I love the NYCFC fan community, culture, and club!
  13. These things are cyclical. As a Jets fan I can tell you that when they changed in '98 to the retro/classic look, most were ecstatic. The 80s/90s look was seen as cheap-looking, generic, and most of all dank with failure and ineptitude. They even seemed to turn the page on the field, briefly, going to the AFCCG several times in the decade that followed. It wasn't until recently that the 80s look has returned in popularity. It didn't help that they managed, in the last decade, to pile on new chapters of futility haha
  14. Regarding the shade of green, I think we've heard a couple of times that it will be lighter than the current pine green or whatever it's called but darker/deeper than kelly green. Not that any of those nuggets were confirmed, but it does seem to align with the hints we've been seeing. I'm happy with that, I personally think the kelly green was a little too light/bright. Especially in the 90's when it bordered on lighter, grass green.
