    don't know if anyone has commented on this yet,
    but did anyone notice the black square on the back of the home CL jersey's???? Is this a late addition to make the numbers easier to read?
    We already knew about the lack of nike swoosh, since they aren't allowed to have tamoil on a nike jersey....but this change wasn't expected. Do you think they'll have this black box on the league jerseys as well?!?

    There's some stupid UEFA law that requires the player numbers to be clearly visible. They felt the yellow numbers on the black and white stripes was not clearly visible, hence the black squares.

    No they don't and won't have the squares on the league jerseys.

    It doesn't seem so stupid to me, just a law to enforce what common sense cannot, ie, what's the point of having numbers & names on the shirts if the fans can't read them?

    I believe Tamoil is the Libyan national oil company, Khadaffi owns a significant share in Juventus. It was said earlier that you could not buy this shirt w/sponser because of sanctions against Libya, but it will probably be available now that sanctions were lifted.

    UN sacnctions have been lifted, not US sanctions so the rule is still in effect.
