New US Away Kits
 
I dig 'em. At least we will look good while getting our asses handed to us.

Not a big fan of these, but at least they aren't as bad as the where's Waldo uniforms.

Why does our shirt look like the old flag of Yugoslavia?

I'm glad they're not too busy looking. I'm glad they actually incorporate some red for the Red, White and Blue.

True but other countries do use colors that are not in their flag for the away kits.

Germany had mint green tops ate one point. Spain is wearing black and neon yellow or green.

Not trying to be a prick, but I don't care what other countries use for their kits. Ours aren't good IMO

Exactly. I want the uniforms to be the correct colors. I am a traditionalist when it comes to jerseys, I want them to be the actual colors of the team.

Honest question; why are they called 'kits?'

Why not uniforms, like every other sport?

Eh, it's okay.. the jersey top does kind of look like Yugoslavia's flag.

Kit means: "A set of articles or implements used for a specific purpose" or of this applies to clothing: "A collection of clothing and other personal effects"

Kit refers not just to the "uniform" but to all the "gear" a player may have eg the "uniform", the boots, shin guards, strappings, laces, etc.

Just like a shaving-kit or any other type of kit.

The "uniform" is correctly referred to as a "strip", which forms one part of a players kit.

In America sports, uniform means all of this, too.

Actually, equipment and jerseys are separated in many instances in the rule book. Lacrosse is a good example of this
