I understand your point. Its a good one. I guess its a question of preferences and what type of jerseys you are used to. I personally watch Soccer as much as I watch hockey and I see upsides and downsides in each ones, but I perfectly understand where your coming from.

Thought it was awesome. Some really cool jerseys in there, though I could ofc do without the arena name splashed all over it.

The rags are actually decent too.


Looks too much like France.

Haha most of those are pretty good.

I think in most cases the sponsor on the front is to large, and all the crests are a bit to high up the chest, but on the whole not bad.

I copuldn't actually bring myself to buy a Devils Shirt in that style because it looks like a Machester United Shirt.

I'd buy one as well. Sometimes still wish lou would reconsider a 3rd jersey. I remember lou commenting on this after Marty said (post game interview) that he wished they did the throwback stuff 5-6 times a year as opposed to just one day.(St. Patty's)Lou's comment was "a lot of good it did, we lost"

...what am I missing here? The white Devils jersey looks like a white t-shirt with 'Prudential' on it.

How is that so cool?

Admittedly don't watch soccer (at all).

It is a nice clean look with a good color combination. There are a lot of ugly and busy soccer jerseys out there so something simple goes a long way in that sport.

Look at the Dutch national team. They just wear orange. That's it. And it is still one of the most recognizable and iconic soccer jerseys out there.

I'm not a fan of soccer jersies because of the huge sponsor tags across the chest. I don't think these look too bad, I've even got some Irish Gaelic Football jersies that are similar, but I wouldn't get one. Some of them are cool enough, but definitely not for me.

Completely disagree. In Soccer the the jersey don't look all the same. Anyone who watches Soccer can tell you which team is which team by looking at his TV (no close ups)


For casual fans, it's not that easy. My friend is a much bigger soccer fan than me and occasionally I watch games with him and often it takes me quite a while to figure out which team is which since the jerseys on both sides just look like colored t-shirts with big ads on them. Sure, usually one is colored dark and the other light but that doesn't help very much when you can't see any team logo on them.

To clarify, I'm not trying to attack soccer as a sport or say that hockey is better than soccer or anything like that (although I do think it is, that's a subject for another debate). All I'm saying is that hockey jerseys are clearly better than soccer jerseys, and I don't really see how you could disagree with that. Hockey jerseys are instantly recognizable by their unique color schemes and jersey designs, and on top of that the team crest is very clearly displayed right in the center.

Are you seriously saying that if one team wears all or mostly black and the other wears all or mostly white in soccer, you have trouble telling who is on what team without a huge crest on them? When I am watching hockey sometimes I cannot see the crest clearly but I know who the Devils are pretty clearly and who the other team is just by the colors.

This is the same for all the sports. To a random fan who watches games occasionally they aren't going to be able to tell teams apart unless they know the general color schemes of the team. Soccer jerseys look great, they're nice and simple and fit what the sport needs. Also if you want to talk about giant billboards let's compare.

I'm not saying that I can't tell white and black apart, I'm saying that if I were to turn on a game of, say, Man City vs. Arsenal, it might take me a little while to figure out if Man City is the team with light blue shirts and Honda logos or the team with black shirts and Motorola logos (I know these probably aren't correct I'm just making this up). I'm not that familiar with the individual players or anything so I have to wait until the commentators give me a clue as to which team is which, which might be a few minutes. Some people probably know ahead of time what the "team colors" are, but if you don't, it's confusing. The color schemes aren't as straight-forward as hockey either. They don't seem to really use reverse color schemes for home and away jerseys, they're just totally different. For example, I just looked up Arsenal - their home jerseys are red with white stripes on the sleeves, their away jerseys are yellow with black pinstripes, and their third jersey is just solid blue. Unless you're a fan, you're not going to be able to follow all of this crap, and since their team logo is just a tiny patch on the upper left of the jersey, you're not going to be able to see it unless they do a close-up on a player. Hockey teams at least usually stick to two or three main recognizable colors, and then reverse them for home and away... although third jerseys are usually completely different.

I'm obviously talking about NHL jerseys here... so that's irrelevant. And like I said above at least hockey teams generally use recognizable patterns for home/away jerseys and reverse color schemes. If you know the basic colors of a team you can usually tell from far away which is which. Soccer is not so simple.

The soccer jerseys don't look bad, but I wouldn't buy one because to me, they are more shirts than jerseys (based on fit/cut).

As far as the sponsors go I agree, I laugh my ass off when I see Union fans (which is at least once a week given my location) with the giant BIMBO logo slung across the chest.
