    Get rid of the cheap Chinese character mockery fonts that can be found at all you can eat buffets. And the yellow and red jerseys.. I'm speechless. They can retain the Asian market without blatant corniness.

    The current logo and uniform scheme isn't as bad as u guys are making it out. We only need the shoulder cut thinned down and those silver loops on shorts and under arms need to be toned down. Trust me on this, Les will not change this concept til a championship is won using them. Then he still won't make the same mistake again changing it right after a back to back. We have to win one, hopefully more, then still wait a few years til a new identity at least. Then he will do what the Pistons and Sixers have done, which will be great. He might tweek them, hopefully, but he will not retire this concept til we get rings with them. If u think different then u haven't been paying attention all these years

    What's the big deal? I think alternates are neat, it's nice to mix up the look every now and then. It's not hurting anyone, fans generally enjoy new jerseys for their teams and it's more money for somebody.

    I guess it's worth it to sacrifice the alternates (short sleeves suck) for the sake of getting rid of the GIANT shoulders on the primary unis.

    However, I won't be satisfied until our alternates, or some variation thereof, become our primary uni.

    My main question now becomes, how do you put sleeves on the alternate without having it look REALLY weird considering the yellow colored side-paneling?

    Is the sleeve going to be yellow or red? :confused:

    I always though the current uniforms kind of looked like a big box when you wearing it because of the cut

    Well... Soccer uniforms change every season, so not sure what you are trying to say here?

    (and thats what I like about soccer uni's, is that if you don't like em you wait one season and chances are that you'll like the new ones).

    It should be yellow to cover the pit stains

    I honestly like these over the current ones mainly because they're unique, and because they were wearing them around the time I became a fan. Still excited for the new sleeves though

    That last sentence, was that a reference to Jeremy Lin?

    The new jerseys coincided with the marketing of Yao Ming.

    Maybe this is why they took down the news? Could be they're still in the decision making process.

    I can hope.

    Did a pretty bad job, but this is more or less what i'm expecting, being that adidas never utilizes the sleeves for design

    Yeah but that wasn't really a design feature, it was just their because they couldn't fit them on the front.

    That doesn't look bad at all, if that's how they'll actually end up looking....

    I still dont buy the idea that these sleeved jerseys make it easier for fans to wear out though...the designs and colors still stand out a lot. It's all about the ads...
