At least they look better than MLS's first jerseys.

Victim of their times. If this group had tried to start their rugby league in 1996, I'm sure they'd all look like harlequins too.

Has the San Diego Waves, Admirals or Destroyers already been used?

No offense, but I actually liked KC's look from the early days.

According to them, these were suggestions from fans and they'd take the top few.

 

Sacramento's are garbage, though. Ohio's not much better. Presidents or Aviators. I'm not a fan of collective nouns.

 

The worst would be the San Francisco Miners. Yeah, that won't be confusing during every day conversation.

What company is making the kits? I don't recognize the logo.  Ohio has decent options but do they have logos on standby for these or will we be looking at generic team names and possibly a sponsor on these?

Aviators is the only acceptable name for Ohio. Presidents is just silly, and Flight is pure crap.

 

EDIT: Aviators has 59% of the vote, Flight has 32%, and Presidents has 9%. Let's hope it stays that way.

Champion Systems. They do more cycling and triathlon work.

Not to be confused with Berkshire Hathaway's Champion USA, who did the old Notre Dame football unis.

I actually like the name Denver Peak. No matter who is on the team, they'll be Peak athletes. And Breakers sounds best for Sand Diego. Was that the name of the pro football team on Coach in its last seasons?

I hope Ohio doesn't call their team the Presidents. The other two choice would be fine by me.

Ohio claims eight US presidents so it makes sense. I'd go with Aviators though due to Eddie Rickenbacker and the Wright Brothers.

Why Denver Vipers?  Denver Peak is garbage, too.  Denver Stampede wins by default.

 

I like how it's some western teams...and Ohio.
