Re: Philadelphia Union Gear for Sale I'll give you two... 1. I grew up about 15 miles from where your stadium will be. I'm still a Philly fan in all other sports (except hockey, ******** the Flyers. They killed the NHL.) Thus I have some interest in the success of the Philly franchise and the team. 2. The snake was utilized by Nike as part of a National team ad campaign within the past few years. You can talk all you want about the original flag it came from, it doesn't change that fact. To utilize it at the club level now, it's a bit silly. And let's call a spade a spade, if it was a second NY team or another expansion team you'd be saying the same. It's a poor decision. It's great Philly finally got a team. It's great they finally got a logo. But the lack of objectivity on this board is alarming. It's a terrible crest.
