  1. I got the 3rd jersey last year. I waited all the way to Christmas to get it when I saw a discount sale. the jersey is only sold as an authentic, no replicas are sold. it was debuted for the Galaxy game last May (in which Beckham melted and cried like a girl). the jersey is a big hit with the fans and became the jersey for all CCL games.

  2. the problem with the 2 Dynamo sponsors were that they were 2 "no name" regional companies. I never heard of Amigo and they are nowhere to be seen today. I think they got money as part of decentralizing energy provider contracts and got lots of money and kicked it into marketing. Greenstar had a small name and it looks like it paid off with them probably getting bought by Waste Management. the new stadium should bring in a bigger sponsor.

    I'd be tempted on getting a new jersey now without the new sponsor.

  3. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Anthracite!


    From Wikipedia:

    Anthracite (Greek Ανθρακίτης, literally "a form of coal", from Anthrax [Άνθραξ], coal) is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high lustre. It has the highest carbon count and contains the fewest impurities of all coals, despite its lower calorific content.

    Anthracite coal is the highest of the metamorphic rank, in which the carbon content is between 92% and 98%.[1] The term is applied to those varieties of coal which do not give off tarry or other hydrocarbon vapours when heated below their point of ignition. Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame.

    Other terms which refer to anthracite are blue coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stone-like hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to Lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond ("Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular, specific, trademarked brand of anthracite coal, mined by the Glen Alden Coal Company in Pennsylvania, and sprayed with a blue dye at the mine before shipping to its Northeastern U.S.A. markets to distinguish it from its competitors). The imperfect anthracite of north Devon and north Cornwall (around Bude) in England, which is used as a pigment, is known as culm. Culm is also the term used in geological classification to distinguish the strata in which it is found and similar strata in the Rhenish hill countries are known as the Culm Measures. In America, culm is used as an equivalent for waste or slack in anthracite mining.

    is this a new Nike color?? :wacko:

    Those jerseys are PHAT! B)

    As gaudy as those kits are, who wouldn't wanna see 'em back for a throwback/rewind match or two (a la the NBA's Rewind Nights)? Huh? C'mon! :D

    Btw, how about those candy-cane socks? If you wanna talk about variety, MLS NEEDS a team with the candy-cane socks, IMO.

    man..what was Nike and Reebok thinking when they created those jerseys....UGLY. much less bad team names and color combinations for striping.

    only the United and Crew look like traditional jerseys.

  5. Actually, I don't believe Houston got new kits this past season.

    Actually, I think they did.

    Their '06 kits didn't have that swirly baby blue pattern on the front like this year's.





    yes, they got a new jersey this past season. it was questioned on where the blue/gray color came from.

    06 was off the shelf adidas jersey. no news yet on changes for 08. (except for the 2nd star over the shield :) )

  6. New uniforms SUCK!!!!  and I am a lifelong Vikings fan.  :cry:

    gee...Reebok has screwed up another uniform. the side stripes, piping with secondary color stripes, miniature logos on the back shoulders.

    the only thing missing to make these unis busier would be advertisements.
