  1. These look like a laundry accident.
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Count me in as one who believes this is not the primary logo, or at least that it is not on the helmet. Maybe just for tv graphics and merch. I also agree that it is centered, but that the italics make it look off. And if it doesn't look centered, then it may as well not be.
  6. Speaking as a New Yorker, the City flag is everywhere and a lot of people know that the orange represents the Dutch/New Amsterdam origins. NYCFC has done a great job of incorporating the flag on their shirt, the corner flags, etc.
  7. I just really really really hope they avoid the military jet fighter theme. And I think they will.
  8. As a Jets fan, I'd be fine with A and B. But C too? Dammit.
  9. Because it's A. Not much different than the current B. Not very interesting conceptually C. Not well executed technically D. A and B E. B and C F. A and C G. All of the above
  10. Wait, what? I thought a new logo was a key part of the new look.
  11. whereas I am left thinking, anyone but the Patriots!
  12. That's what I'm thinking too. Or even with a sport green face mask.
  13. I saw a tweet from what I would consider a reliable source that said the new helmet is green. Perhaps @Tealcan confirm
