They were great on the Whalers. Imagine if all NY teams copied the Knicks, Mets and Islanders. The Mets actually got their colors from the Dodgers and Giants.
Pittsburgh pro teams all wear the black and gold.

They won last night.
Against an NPSL team from a league one level down, a USL team should win most times the ball is kicked into action. Of course, Cosmos B suits up Pele, Chinaglia, Beckenbauer, et al. Correct Zoo? I jest! ;)

Just win, baby! They will be playing their next cup match at Memphis 901 (the team they just played on Friday) in what appears to be a baseball stadium.

I noticed another Cup game pits Orange County SC versus Orange County FC. Reminds me of the Judean Peoples Front versus the Peoples Front of Judea.
So FC beat SC on PK's. That's notable because FC is the NPSL side and SC is in the same league as Hartford.

NPSL Cosmos are still getting better attendance than most USL teams. I saw a comment somewhere else that the Cosmos dominated the run of play.

Given Cosmos B or whatever played Hartford, purportedly dominating the run of play is nice. Still managing to lose to apparently the worst of the USL’s bottom feeders, not so nice for the NPSL’s royalty and allegedly one of its’ best teams. USL carp v NPSL king of the mountain?

Yup @Waquoit , even the initially not so successful light blue, white and black Penguins sold out in trying to attract more one-time Steel city support. On the other hand, the current NPSL franchise exhibits some independence or Tony Dorsett-era Pitt affinity sporting royal blue and yellowish gold. Kudos, or not so in borrowing Tottenham’s Hotspurs team name.

I actually thought it was a bit of an upset given how pathetic HA has been. NPSL is not on the same level as USL so it’s a somewhat natural result.

Of course two teams in the same league shouldn’t have the same colors. Why are you so obtuse?
Do you see any rugby or cricket club in the UK trying to emulate the colors of any soccer club? Speaking of being obtuse...

Other than the rugby and cricket clubs that are owned by soccer clubs? I have no idea. I think your brain is on drugs.

So weak. And obtuse. There is no major rugby club that shares any affiliation (or colors in the same city) with any major soccer or cricket club. Wikipedia.com.

Maybe so. I can’t believe I’ve wasted minutes of my life discussing this idiotic topic.
