I was planning on getting the hoops jersey because I think it's perfect for the US, but I think this may have changed my mind. That's a clean kit.
Wow. Our crest used to look like THAT!? That’s awesome! Why did we ever change?
because in 1983 some intern found a neat way to edit clipart files….
I still say GC's hybrid of that old crest and the snake is the best.
Hi Mr. Gulati,
First and foremost, I’d like to state that I’m a huge fan of the USMNT. I’ve seen the team play here in the US, against Italy in Genoa, and in Paris against France, and when our national team plays, nothing is more important to me. I’m sure it has come to your attention that a potential design of the US centennial kit has “leaked.” I really hope that you and Nike are listening to the response of US fans, as I believe in general the USSF is attentive to the opinions of those who provide their undying support to US Soccer. If you haven’t already, please take some time to read the comments section from the below article:
I have never, EVER seen such a positive response to a jersey or a crest for the USMNT. Please, for the love of God, stick with this crest design. It is the opinion of most US fans that our current crest looks amateurish at best. I think it’s alright myself, but certainly nothing special. The throw-back crest, or some variation of the “Don’t Tread On Me” snake design, would be far superior to our current crest.
For the record, I WILL be buying one of these if this happens to be the actual jersey.
So, to conclude, please listen to your fans on this one. We are the ones who travel across the globe to see the USMNT play and devote our time (and money!) to the cause.
Thanks for your time,
cwil (not actually how I signed it)
PS – Did I mention that one of the games I went to here in the US was the 2011 Gold Cup final? I know I don’t need to say any more. You totally owe me for that one.
