the only connection is Kroeneke

Ha! Can't believe I overlooked the obvious. Of course. 

 

There was talk, though, around a dozen years ago or so of a more tangible connection between the clubs, as if Colorado would be Arsenal's proxy in the U.S. Maybe it was just talk because of the Kroenke connection, but as an Arsenal fan who had yet to form an MLS allegiance, it had piqued my interest.

Arsenal and the Rapids played a friendly a couple years ago, but I'm not sure they ever had all that much a connection beyond shared ownership.

They play right next to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal site, too. As with the home/away kit dichotomy, nothing to it beyond just being kind of funny. I appreciate the Kroenke restraint in not forcing anything further.

I know these are just jackets that can be secondary colors (see Seattle, among others), but wouldn't it be something if after the yellow wars last year both Columbus and Nashville dropped it.

Man, that green is so nice, stripes were absolutely not needed. It’s depressing that within a decade they’ll likely be a primarily black team with green trim

The stripes (on the jacket) should be black. Sounders do this too for some reason, using white stripes on green sometimes when the blue stripes look far better. 
 

Also why does MLS hate zip-up hoodies?

adidas hates them, so MLS does by default.

Looks like Austin will be unveiling their secondary jersey next Wednesday:

RSL kit is mostly white with a burgundy/red crest, adidas logo, shoulder stripes, Inner & edge of collar, Inner & edge of sleeve, shorts stripes, shorts crest. Shorts numbers. 
 

the overlay on the white will be a grey “pattern” that’s a repeated design made of a mishmash of art elements. Visible “SALT LAKE” text and part of “BELIEVE”. Slight crown elements.

That RSL description sounds suspiciously similar to what the away shirt for the more famous Real will look like... just in different colours.

Austin FC has no legends as of yet. Just do a white jerseys with a black/green racing stripe or something, put it on social and call it a day.

I really find it pretty hilarious how MLS feels the need to give their kits "names" as if it's some big, meaningful thing. It's not, and I wish they'd drop it, because it's a joke.

I’m sure it’s equal parts marketing and equal parts plausible deniability for when a team wears its presumed home kit only twice at home.

As it relates to marketing, it could also be something to help give purpose behind alternate uniforms that don't represent a team's primary colors. The notion of a "change kit" is common in global soccer, but (the recent lunacy of the NBA aside) might still be considered an oddity in the North American custom of home and away uniforms using a team's primary color palette. I was in Portland when the Timbers joined MLS, and naming their secondaries the Rose City Red kits at the time made it clear that the off-brand color choice wasn't made at random. This is just a theory for the sake of discussion, of course. I know nothing. :)

Are you referring to the Real Madrid leak with the Orange and Blue accents? The collar type might be the same, along with the usual shoulder stripes. The pattern though isn’t at all the same. Real Madrid’s is a couple repeating, colored lines. The RSL pattern is a  combination of photos or custom designed “Believe”/Lion elements repeated vertically maybe 3 times. To me it resembles a scrapbook section or various magazine clippings stacked upon each other maybe. Also not colorful, but grey like the FC Cincinnati grey-on-white of their current white kit.

 

I could mock it up I guess.
