[U.S. SOCCER] U.S. Soccer unveiled the new Nike away uniform for men's and women's national teams, a striking red, white and blue design that will first be worn by the men Wednesday night against Mexico.

The jersey has a modern crew-neck collar and consists of three bands representing the colors of the American flag. The base color of the jersey and the cuff of the sleeves feature a prominent red. The upper torso and top sleeves include a bold blue tone, and a white chest band extends over the middle of both sleeves.

The back of the jersey features a unique and specially designed font for the names and numbers, which is modern and angular. Each number on the back of the jersey also houses a small U.S. Soccer crest at the bottom. Additionally, there is a pennant tab inside the back of the neck featuring 13 red and white stripes to represent the original 13 colonies.



"I really like the new, patriotic colorway," said U.S. men's national team captain Clint Dempsey in a statement. "It's a distinctive design that looks great on the pitch. They will serve us well as we head into a competitive group."

    Some people are complaining that it looks like the Russian Olympic hockey team's uniform. Since I'm not a hockey fan, it doesn't bother me at all. I like it a lot. And I like it a whole lot better than our home game uniform. The photos didn't show the back with the special lettering...I'm looking forward to seeing it. But the front has a clean, crisp design and bold colors that should be distinctive and easy to pick out on the field.

    The colors of the United States of America are RED, WHITE and BLUE. I'll just buy a Bomb Pop from the ice cream man the next time he's in the neighborhood. That should suffice. Slurp!

    I really like the pennant tab inside the back of the neck. Who designs these things. Certainly no one that has any knowledge of what a soccer uniform looks like. Someone at adidas is looking at these things and saying to themselves well I think we are good for about another 10 years. When I say who designs these things I would like to actually see a full length picture of the person or persons that designed them. Then I would actually like to see their rationale for the design. The actual rationale for the design. Not what they are going to just say. To often the business end of sport takes over the heart of the game. A number of years ago the St. Louis Blues had shirts that someone put red in. "THE BLUES" They did it because they thought it should sell better with red. Maybe with a lot of red they think they will sell a lot more. Or maybe the department just has bad taste. Anyone who likes the uniforms has bad taste, never played soccer and (I don't care if you did). I was hoping all the players would have a T-Shirt under this thing and when someone scored a goal take it off and have the T-Shirt say, "WEARING IN PROTEST". They probably also thought the first line in this comment was not facetious but actually real.

    Clint couldn't you have just dodged the question somehow.
