WC kits

Post by mongrel hawk on Wed Jul 02, 2014 8:02 pm

Fifa's ruining the national teams traditional kits. Argentina, Germany and England with white shorts, Italy with blue shorts, Germany away kit is not green anymore, Portugal is all red now, Holland, that has possibly the most beautiful kit in the world (orange jersey, black shorts), are looking like fucking pumpkins in those ridiculous all-orange kits. Fortunately Uruguay and Brazil were preserved.

I've heard Fifa c**ts are trying to make all kits one-colour because it's supposedly better for HD TV.  scratch

That's what I heard as well. And I agree, it's ridiculous.



vs.



It's the same with France too and their traditional blue-white-red combination.

Each team is supposed to have a light strip and a dark strip. I read somewhere that it was supposed to help referees in penalty incidents & stuff like that.

Or maybe it is because African peasants are watching on black & white Tv

It seems pretty ridiculous that you go out and buy a fancy tv to enjoy all the vibrant colours, and then FIFA decide not to allow the different colours any more. I have to say though that maybe they should get rid of the green kits (e.g. of Nigeria). I remember that I couldn't see them very well against the green pitch on my HDTV.

Yeah now that its mentioned, I remember the light and dark tones FIFA wanted to see as home and away colors. No mixed up (White Shirt and black shorts...).

Its dumb. I want the traditional colors back. It worked without problems imo.


Best jerseys this tournament:
Netherland blue, Argentina home, Uruguay home, France home.
