Rock the Crossbar

Friday, March 10

OH MY GOD - this is the worst name in the history of pro sports - MLS, you have cheapened yourself further. No-one can take this one seriously! As of I think this week, the New York Metrostars became RED BULL NEW YORK!!!


  • I dunno, the Dallas Burn was pretty bad. Real Salt Lake is also rather shite. Ya, you are problably right. This is the worst.

  • What has Lalas ever done except stink up every organization he's ever been with - on the field and off...

    The guy is a total jackass.

    Nice kit!

  • Dallas Burn. Kansas City Wiz. 'Nuff said. Red Bull, as I'm sure you all know, has a team in the Austrian top league with their name on it, so I don't regard this as the end of the world. As for Lalas, yeah he's a bit of a joke, but he's not a bad guy. Put it this way...if MLS can manage to get a decent team in the nation's most important media market with a 30,000 seater accessible via public transportation nearby? Yeah, I'm OK with Red Bull.

  • Very cheap lookin isn't it. Looks like something you would get for winning an indoor tournament or something. They should have the two bulls humping - that would generate some publicity.

  • Hahahaha!

    Do they think they'll sell replica kits to twentysomething trendoids who otherwise shop at Urban Outfitters?

  • You've all heard of PSV Eindhoven, I assume, so the notion of a corporate name influencing the name of a club shouldn't be all that hard to grasp. As for appearance, if there's anything MLS has demonstrated (generally for the better), it's that they're willing to rework the look of a kit. Get over it already.

  • Toms right. At the end of the day we should just concentrate on the fact that the football is shite :-)

  • Yes well said - shite shirt, shite name, shite skills. This though I think isnt as bad as that Fulham Pizza hut shirt. Its close though.

  • If someone could only take the San Diego Padres uniforms circa 1984 and translate them into a football kit for that would be as awesome as ANY episode of Patrick Devitt's favorite show, "Reba."

    By Blogger George Cuddy, at 5:49 PM  

  • MLS did that already.

  • Fulham had an awful kit sponsor that encouraged endless piss taking but they did not change the club's name. Renaming the team is worse.
    Polygamists using Re - AL in their club name also rates up there.

  • True, if they had been Pizza Hut Fulham that would have been worse than the shirt ever was...
