Good god I HATE all of these damn corporate logos that are larger than the team's logo or anything else. WTF is wrong with European professional teams? Do they not make enough money that they have to rely on this crap? I LOVE the overall look of soccer (real football) uni's and a lot of these look amazing, but I just can't get past the annoying corporate logo's. Too NASCAR for me. :cursing:

Do we really need to rehash this discussion again? Apparently no soccer uniform thread on this site is complete without a debate on the propriety of sponsors' logos.

#1 - How do you expect them to make all of that money w/ commercial free halves?

#2 - Just be grateful that teams don't look like this.

#3- Do we have to go down the road again?

I'd rather have commercials. It's not like we'd miss anything anyways....1-0 game is like watching paint dry.

#2 - Just be grateful that teams don't look like this.

Just speaking my opinion. NFL Europa was equally as annoying with the corporate NASCAR abuse.

1) You can't have a commercial during gameplay. That's just plain stupid.

1a) If you feel like that, then don't watch.

2) As you said before, the teams in the upper leagues make enough money to not have to look like that. Examples like what was shown are in lower hockey leagues.

Valid point. Just sucks that can't get the money from other ideas.

Don't. I fall asleep every time.

True and sad.

Sounds like your opinion has more to do with the sport than the topic at hand.

Maybe you should voice your thoughts here, instead.

No, not really. I'm 100% against the NASCAR look in sports. I understand that teams need to make money and this is a result of it, I just wish there were better ways to do it.

Anyone who suggests cutting away from a soccer game in order to show commercials because "nothing happens anyway" clearly A.) knows nothing about soccer, and B.) shouldn't be talking about it.

If I were watching a Man Utd or USMNT match and they cut away from the game to show commercials, I'd be livid. Just as livid as I would be if they did that during a Yankees, Jets, or Rangers game (or any other game, for that matter).

Nothing much happens in MLB either, but there are breaks in the live action. Though I'll give MLB credit for trying to create ballparks that are suppose to be hitter friendly to make the game more exciting. Regardless, this is a uniform thread...not a Soccer 101 class. Bottom line, the NASCAR look needs to go away, but it's only going to continue to grow. Eventually, America's "big 3" will probably adopt it as well. Some NFL teams already have them on their practice uni's.

This sounds more like tired, generic, anti-soccer rambling then anything else.

I believe that is a knockoff shirt, but that is the actual design. The collar is not like this one. But the full release is tomorrow. Unicef is still on the back, though if the shirt were tucked in you'd only see the top of it

As am I. There's sponsors on nearly every professional soccer uniform. Fans have gotten used to it. Why does every soccer thread have to turn into this same tired argument at some point?

For true soccer fans, it has gotten to the point where we can't imagine a shirt without a sponsor on the front. I can't imagine Arsenal without Fly Emirates, or Inter without Pirelli. It is what it is. If you hate the aesthetic look of uniform sponsors, then that's fine and understandable.

But please don't knock the game of soccer in this thread, if you want to - go ahead and start a new thread about how soccer sucks in the General forum, I'll add my $0.02 there.
