Welcome to the RSL Cup blog

I've been a fan of Real Salt Lake since it joined MLS and took to the field in 2005, and I've been a fan of MLS since it began in 1996. Lately however I've started to worry about the path MLS is taking and the poor decisions they are making that in my mind threaten the growth of soccer as a whole in the US. (see "Columbus conspiracy" section) Soccer in America will grow only when we have a vibrant and diverse minor league system, something that MLS seems to be smothering at the moment. (see "American soccer wars" section) Let's keep our eyes on the situation and hope for the best, a future where grass-roots soccer and the minor leagues can not only exist but flourish, as well as where the contributions and history of the league's early clubs are appreciated and preserved.

Favorite jerseys for 2012

So pretty much all of 2012's jerseys can be seen on the MLS Gear website now.

Here are my favorites.


1. RSL of course.

Actually, I wouldn't have put RSL's up if I didn't like it but I think this is my favorite all time RSL uniform. Up to this point my favorite RSL uniform had been the 2005 away kit. I've always said that I never really liked any of the home uniforms RSL has ever had. That is until now, I love the different color sleaves.

2. Columbus' away.

I like how they are bringing back the yellow and black stripes on the upper half of the jersey. Really takes you back to 1996.

3. San Jose away.

I like how simple it is. Makes me think of a soccer kit from the 70's.

4. Los Angeles home.

I like that they are bringing back the sash, the white and blue looks classy too. It would look better though with more white and less little blue accents on the underarms etc.
