    It is sad some of the most passionate fans in MLS will not find one under the tree this Christmas morning:(. Always seem to be a day late and a dollar short in this department. Hate to see the competition get a head start on us every year.

    2012 Jersey?

    We are do for a new jersey design this year, every two years we get new jersey. Are they holding off because of a possible sponsor that's going on the jersey.

    I hope that they will get Addidas to make the Chicago flag jersey as there secondary jersey (Puma's Chicago flag jersey in 2005 was the best jersey the league has ever had).

    This might be asking for too much but, how about a third jersey.


    If we do get a new jersey, Chicago flag, or third jersey they won't be out in time for Christmas (that sucks).

    Would be nice to have it out at this time of year. Would probably sell quite a few during the holidays and maybe get a little excitement generated during the cold months as well. Need a Vulcan in the Front Office, a little logic never hurts.

    When have the Fire ever got a shirt out in time for Christmas? Hell, after being completely ignored in 1998, I'm just happy to be able to buy a shirt at all!

    Hasn't pretty much everyone else already unveiled their new uniforms?

    All I'm really hoping for is the stripe to return to the white jersey. I've pretty much accepted by now that we're not going to see a return of the flag jersey or some other non-white road uniform (at least for the forseeable future). Last year's home uniform is the best we've had since 2003 IMO, so I don't want to see any radical changes there.

    Wasn't it Nike's fault that we couldn't get replicas/official uniforms in '98? Or am I remembering wrong? :confused:

    Maybe...I can't quite remember either. I think they were burned that we didn't want their Chicago Rhythm name, so they sort of dragged their feet on releasing jerseys for sale. I don't think any Nike gear was available in 1998. I believe the only Nike thing I had that year was the MLS Cup champions t-shirt.

    If you can't get the actual jersey for Christmas, maybe try the next best thing....

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to fireman451 again.

    I'm sure they will keep "Quaker" within the white band and the guy's head will be to the left of the Q.

    So nice to have a sponsor back. And a local company to boot! Goes well with a health and fitness theme. I assume the new jerseys will be revealed soon with this formal announcement.

    On the Section 8 board, one guy said that the white bar on the jersey is being replaced with a blue bar instead. Any truth to this?

    What's fat, old, ugly, and stupid, and thinks it's ok for poor people to drown?

    Hint: It's not Quaker Oats!

    Too bad this didn't happen when Dema was still here -- who better to create a Cap'n Crunch banner around to welcome our new shirt sponsor overlords.

    Ran across this when skimming Crains. Ed Sherman reports:

    Chicago Fire near jersey sponsorship with Quaker Oats

    http://www.chicagobusiness.com/arti...fire-near-jersey-sponsorship-with-quaker-oats

    ITs a subbrand of current league sponsor Pepsi. For my part, I love their oat meal product (except that instant crap) We could make some awesome two-polers using QuakerDude. Here is an example I saw on a quick logo search...
