  1. While I can't say it is growing on me, I am getting used to it a little. I was the same way when FSU changed their logo in 2014. But please, NSC, do not wear jerseys that weird shade of yellow. A pale yellow I can live with but not that slightly green-tinged shade. I mean really, how hard is it to screw up yellow and blue? It's not like there is another club in MLS with that color scheme.
  2. My thoughts exactly. I will probably just continue to wear my current stuff instead of buying anything with this on it.
  3. If it is popular with 12-year old kids, that's all that matters. At least that seems to be the target market these days. BTW, if not for the numbers I kind of like these and I am generally an old fart traditionalist when it comes to these things.
  4. Those things go for HUGE prices on ebay, especially if in complete sets. I've seen sealed packs go for upwards of $100. The most recent sales have been for $65-$75 after shipping... http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&_nkw=nfl+pencil&_sop=16 I've got the complete set somewhere that I got as a kid in the late 70s. They were available in the Sears Christmas Wish Book, along with a whole slew of other cool NFL stuff. Just about any of that Sears NFL stuff from the 70s and 80s goes for big $$$ on ebay, namely the player figures and helmet cars. I have the set of these unused pencils somewhere. I might have to find them for $100. When I was a kid in the 70's I got so much NFL stuff for Christmas from Sears. They had everything! I remember I was excited that my new bedspread had the expansion teams (Bucs and Seahawks) on it. My sister still has my old blanket with all the team wordmarks.
  5. Two more NASL names, Fort Lauderdale Strikers and Tampa Bay Rowdies, have been reused at the second division level twice.
  6. Glad the vote was to retain Silverbacks. The Silverbacks name has been used for more seasons than both Chiefs clubs combined. Besides, not all old NASL names carry the same weight. The Chiefs legacy does not equal those of the Cosmos, Sounders, Timbers, Rowdies, Strikers or Earthquakes. God only knows what kind of new logo will come out of this. The old one wasn't great but I have a bad feeling the new one will be worse.
  7. Seems unneccesary. The Silverbacks have been around for over a decade and have a history with that name. Perhaps not that great a history, but a history nonetheless. I see this as similar to when the Vancouver 86ers changed after fourteen years to the Whitecaps. That one worked out pretty well, but I don't see the same passion for the game or the club like was in Vancouver. I guess they just want to jump on the NASL nostalgia bandwagon like everyone else (Earthquakes, Sounders, Timbers, Whitecaps, Strikers, Rowdies, Cosmos).
  8. Maybe it's just me being (very) old school, but I really dig this one.
  9. Houston Hurricane throwback? When did the Hurricane ever wear a jersey like that?
  10. OMG, there's a picture of a gun on the jersey! It makes me want to go out and shoot people! AAAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
  11. Seeing the new unis on the field I have to say I hate them less than I did when they were first unveiled. Still not crazy about them, but maybe they just take getting used to.
  12. The only thing more annoying than "El" and "Los" on NBA jerseys is the boilerplate, knee-jerk rhetoric spewed by xenophobes every single time those jerseys get trotted out. The only thing more annoying than "El" and "Los" on NBA jerseys is the boilerplate, knee-jerk rhetoric spewed by people who claim that someone else's opposition to it is based in xenophobia rather than just the stupidity of the jerseys themselves and the pandering to one specific subset of people based on ethnicity. And it is pretty insulting to simply add "El" or "Los" to Latinize a team name.
  13. New jerseys for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2012. The home shirt, with the thicker hoops, more resembles the old 70's-80's shirts but with the red and yellow switched. The alternate jersey is a vast improvement over last season's just plain white.
  14. As is usually the case, a design made to look modern will eventually just look dated. A classic design, while possibly boring, rarely does.
