    Actually, most DON'T refer to them as the Red and Black. The MLS Media Guide does.

    DCU is as much red-and-black as the Phillies are Red and Blue.

    BTW, what the phuck were Arsenal and Celtic thinking with those thunderbolt kits?

    The Galaxy had some ugly away uniforms early

    Looks like the spirit of the 1977 Houston Astros was alive and well in those jerseys

    Ireland wore an orange jersey in qualifying for France '98. I think they lost a crucial game to Macedonia in those horrendous jerseys. Needless to say, they were never resurrected and are probably being used as dishtowels somewhere in Skopje right now.

    Thanks Skip. My headache came back.


    Paraguay: Change jersey was a weird color that didn't know whether to be brown or orange.

    Cameroon: FIFA gave the thumbs-down to their sleeveless shirts -- What the hell is this, girls basketball? -- so they tried to salvage them with white and black undershirts.

    Slovenia: Whoever was in charge of the design obviously put off his or her assignment until the night before it was due.

    Belgium: Their all-red look is usually a winner. (OK, it wasn't in '94.) But this year, Nike gave them some weird pinkish-red.

    Italy: The tight fit and the aquamarinish blue might have looked better if Italy had lived up to its hype. In the end, the look summed up the way the team played: like Survivor rejects.


    Lived in Houston in the 70s and had the misfortune of seeing the Astros in their popsicle uniforms play the Braves in their loud, blue double-knits around '75 or so. Looked out on the astroturf and coulda sworn Jackson Pollock had thrown up.

    Only time in my life I ever wished I was colorblind.

    Color is copper; Paraguays top export.

    I'd have to say the ugliest jersey out of all of those was the Mutiny jersey.There's just to much going on there.And Valderrama's hair throws everything of too.

    Croatias from JK was pretty bad...the numbers on the back were these big white squares that were obviously sewn right over the checkerboard and you could see right thru it

    All right. I'll give Paraguay points for creativity. Take 'em off the list.

    Remember that "The Caribou of Colorado" (and that was their official name) were aiming to have a brown leather look like a mountain man or early trapper, leather fringe and all.


    How can merely bad color combinations designs compete with that kind of "creativity"?

    That's cool and all that, but I cannot believe it hasn't gotten one vote. I like Germany's green-and-white strip (think 2000 Euro), but the green, black, red, and yellow is a little hard on the eyes. Then again, so are claret and blue, but it is a revered combination of colors.

    He's right. It's the LEATHER FRINGE! that puts the Caribou over the top.

    I saw one at the US Soccer Hall of Fame this summer in Oneonta... it's even more brutal now, as the leather is drying and shriveling a bit. Far and away the ugliest. You have to see it live to appreciate it.

    Oakland, damn straig

    Not to dispute that that shirt was a piece of crap, but that was LA's home shirt from '96.

    And, call it a hunch, but I'd bet money that that is a picture is of Cobi celebrating LA's very first goal in the Galaxy's very first match against the Metros.
