    Ain't out yet. May not be for a while. I don't quite know what to make of all this, except we need to get as much money as possible out of ANY revenue source. That is, unless Shad just wants to be generous and help out his adopted state with a company discount. Personally, I'm not opposed to the sponsorship or the logo. God knows, we've had worse. Didn't mind FXPro, hated MarathonBet. At any rate, I suspect this will take more time to play out. The part that really bothers me about this is the fact that Shad is apparently a big campaign donor to Gov. Scott. But I guess that's just the way that the world goes around these days.

    P.S. These stories are relatively old in the news cycle, but they do shed some light as to the inner workings of such things.

    I'm more positive about this kit. I like how this one is just straight black and white. The sponsor isn't great, but it fits better with the design than VisitFlorida. The collar is simple, but stylish - though I still like the ones with the full collar from two years ago.

    Love the kit, hate the sponsor (again). Can we really not get an established company to sponsor our shirts!? Makes me look back at the LG days wistfully.

    Unfortunately, it's these betting establishments that are taking over. I couldn't find a list of all the Championship Teams shirt sponsors, but I found one for the Premier League - 9 of 20 teams have some sort of physical or online casino as their primary sponsor. I imagine it's at least that in the Championship.

    Maybe Shad could buy Harrod's? Owning the world's largest department store ought to help with a shirt sponsor!

    Based on the website, I'm going to venture to say this does not look like a high quality sponsor. If only pitbull hadn't misused all that money....we could still all be visiting florida.

    I'm surprised Khan doesn't just use Flex-n-gate or another business entity he works closely with. How much could this shirt sponsorship worth? Any ideas? Guesses?

    While walking through Salisbury last spring on my trip through England I saw a placard for "JUST EAT" outside of a business. I begged my wife to take a slight detour so I could visit a JUST EAT shop. I was so disappointed to find out it is just an online portal to order food from participating restaurants. It was only a crummy Chinese restaurant that participated in the program. I really wanted it to be a grocery store.

    Worth? I'm not sure, but VisitFlorida paid $1.25 million for last year. I don't know if anyone has attempted to say if it was worth that. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/os-visit-florida-soccer-sponsor-20160817-story.html

    I don't really care about the sponsor as it's just a money grab - I'd think more than 1.25mil would be a sponsorship commitment to this club, hopefully more this year. However, the yesteryear days of Pizza Hut look better and better in comparison. I still have my 2007 LG McBride shirt - the "LG" logo is almost washed away but the #20 and "McBride" remain solidly intact - as does the badge.
