My favorite US jersey is this one.
I think we should consider incorporating the coiled snake and "Don't Tread on Me" into the badge. It would pay homage to uniquely American history, and I think it would help establish an identity that arose organically among the players and fans. A couple of the fan designs I've seen are really great. It's hard to incorporate the snake into the badge without it seeming cartoonish, but some people really managed to hit the mark.
I'm just happy the stars on the centennial crest stand for something. It is embarrassing that our badge has meaningless stars in a sport when stars on/around crests stand for major accomplishments.
