    Yeah, I know. But it's out there. If legit, I like the fact that the adidas triple shoulder stripes are missing. And it has a collar! Does anyone happen to know when our deals with adidas and Visit Florida expire? IMG_2005.PNG

    Aside from the collar, I like it. I never understood why a contact sport would need a collar on their shirts. It must be a traditional thing.

    Visit Florida is a one-year deal which I assume will expire this summer.

    Adidas is a "long-term" deal that was signed in 2013. No idea what qualifies as long-term but other articles cited 1-3 year deals as short term.

    VisitFlorida has been getting hammered over the past few months and it is barely hanging on as an entity at this point (http://www.travelpulse.com/news/destinations/visit-florida-faces-massive-budget-cut.html). It will likely survive but with far fewer resources, so I wouldn't be surprised if this deal is not renewed. Plus a Premier League sponsorship is going to be worth a lot more! ;)

    I love the collared look. I still like my 2015/16 jersey with the collar but this one is even better because it looks like it has black trim rather than a dark blue!

    Love the collar; unsure about the buttons, though.

    Still hoping to see our Fullers London Pride as our kit sponsor
