    Have you seen the Sounders USL retro one?

    I, for one, would totally buy that and wear it in public.

    $100 for a T-Shirt? That looks more like a fan-designed jersey for their Twitter feed than an officially licensed product. It better come with a b***j**.

    Thx,

    Jay!

    All of the DC ones are horrific. Like “make your eyes bleed”, bad. Who the hell signed off on those?

    they look fine to me - I don't want one, because I'm spending my bucks on decent home and away uniforms - but these are NOT eye-bleeding

    They look like cheap knock-offs you’d find in an overseas outdoor market.

    I was just recently cleaning out some dresser drawers and throwing away old T-shirts and this looks exactly like one of those old free t-shirts. Even then we wondered where they got that design.

    You know the other teams from 96 got close or dead on knock offs of their 1996 jerseys? LAG got this 1990s looking satin style jacket that rocks. I'd have bought the long sleeve if had a crest not that logo from the cat in the hat jersey's shadow print.

    Yeah - someone missed a deadline at the DCU FO and an intern pulled some crap from the internet.

    According to Goff she went from interviewing for a job on the technical staff to getting hired as the GM? How exactly do you go from interviewing for an individual contributor roll to being GM? And she was competing for that tech staff job with Amos McGee who left here before last year as an assistant coach if memory serves me.

    That’s a massive change. Not sure if it’s a good change. I think that Kasper has done a good job, over the years, of sifting through the drags of international pro soccer looking for role players and potential starters. There have been a lot of misses, but considering our owners’ lack of financial clout, that’s only to be expected. Kasper also understands the mysteries of MLS salary refs.

    She interviewed for a job on the technical staff in 2015-16. It's right there in Goff's tweet.

    After reading about her all day yesterday, she definitely has the resume and experience for this job; can't wait to see how she does.

    Will be nice to still see Dave around, he's fun to talk to.


    Well, that was a while ago and someone else hired her to do that work so she's been gaining that experience for a bit.

    I don't care if she's purple as long as she does a good job.

    I would be very concerned if she were purple.

    If you see her and she's purple - maybe give her the Heimlich :eek:
