You have to *change* it when the particular navy blue envolved is another companies identity.

Agreed. It is a shame.

It has long been the policy of the USPS to not put anyone on a stamp unless they were dead though, Currency too.

I think you're right about LA being the record holder for our lifetime...and I'm only 31.

I can understand your concern considering there is a good chance that you bleed blue. But at least it's not denim blue. I don't mind the new jerseys but I'll agree and say that I like it when a color knows it's a color (I'm BLUE!) instead of not being sure (I think I'm blue but I'm not sure.)

bissel's been around at least for a year. don't know if they've gotten jersey space in the past, but they have been a high-level sponsor.
Bissel's Logo was on last seasons USPS jersey. I believe it was in the middle of the back between the shoulder blades. I would check mine but i dont have it with me. The other place it might be is on the jersey pockets, but it is definitely on the jersey.

I like it, too. Different - yes, but I think I like it. I do have to admit that I like the USPS jerseys better, but oh well.

I will not totally make up my mind until i either see it in person or see it at the races as shown on TV.....But, suspect I like the Postie jersey better. Jerseys can come alive in person..

It's OK... i Like the imposed world on the front of the jersey..Some forum members hate 'busy' jerseys...I would consider this less busy than a postie jersey? Just the back side looks like a Roman brest plate for warriors...At least the Discovery Channel is a sponsor that I approve of..

I'm sure it will change each year as the postal jersies have, that pic above can't be the final jersey though eh? to much prime logo real estate on the upper chest!!

I can think of pro European race teams that changed their kit in mid-year...Like Le Boulangarie...

I am not sure about that blue, but I do like blue... and I really like and appreciate the Discovery Channel. So I'll keep that open mind and just keep looking at that picture of the new jersey. Maybe it'll grow on me.

The bike is the thing! ..Put the kit atop the bike and who notices the imperfections of the jersey..
