re: Rumored 2015 USMNT Away Kit - mynamebowl
I'd love to see another all white without the collar. Something like England's. They were probably my favorite of the tournament. [img]http://footballfashion.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/England-2014-World-Cup-Nike-Home-Kit-420x215.jpg?02382d[/img]...

I need to see what the shorts look like before I make any kind of firm judgement here. But the Nike blue tops look kinda sweet to me. [quote]Those brazil ones are awesome.[/quote] Those were nasty. The popsicle US jerseys got hated on but turned out to be one of my favorites of the tournament...

This is going nowhere. We are never going to agree on this. You guys say I don't get it. I say you don't. You guys think my argument is an over simplification. I think you guys are out-thinking the room. I think you guys love the sport so much (as do I), and resent the love it doesn't get...

[quote]Then why hasn't Belgium been good forever? My point is that they radically changed their system from the national team all the way down to the youth clubs. That's how they became great. [/quote] No, they got lucky that a bunch of immigrants moved there who were better athletes than t...

[quote]the premise of your entire argument is "if we put all our resources" which again is ridiculous, as other wealthy countries put their entire resources into the sport with paltry results. What makes you think that America could do better than England? Or Norway? Or Sweden? Or France? Or the Net...

[quote]Ex-Popcorn[/quote] You're only going to get more frustrated arguing with some of these guys on this topic man.

re: men in blazers - mynamebowl
I DVR it but I've only watched a few episodes. It's not my favorite, but it's worth the 20 minutes it takes to watch. It gets a bit silly sometimes, though. And I don't like looking at Rog's face. Something about the way he looks at the camera stresses me out :lol:. I'm more a fan of the podcast ...

[quote]Do you not see how this is a detriment to the USMNT going forward? [/quote] Of course I do. I wasn't arguing that MLS isn't important to the USMNT.

[quote]I think when we look back at US soccer in 50 years I think the the USMNT and the MLS will have similar growth patterns (in terms of caliber of players and fans) and the MLS will be given much more credit than it is now. I just don't see how having an exciting national league could do anything...
