I have a quick question for you all with regards to the Sounders crest, specifically as it appears on our 3rd kit.
In 2012, the Alliance Council passed a resolution stating the the crest should not be altered from its primary form, which includes the color palette. (Black, Green and Blue)
For reference, the minutes for that meeting can be found here:
Once passed, the Sounders FO quickly came back and stated that the crest and its colors on the kit is a "business decision" and as such is outside the scope of the Council.
The Council member who originally proposed the resolution has put forth a proposal to reiterate this resolution and put it to vote before the full Alliance. Out curiosity as much as anything else, I'd like to run a little straw poll to see what readers here think and how they might vote (or abstain).
As a point of reference, monochrome palettes in 3rd kits have been common, as the 3rd kit (by rule) cannot match the colors of the primary. As an example, Chelsea (Adidas) and Manchester United (Nike) have monochrome crests on their 3rd kit.
Since I'd like people's votes to be as unbiased as possible, I'm not going to editorialize beyond that, but I'd like to hear what people think about this.
