I know it's only a sponsor, but I love how they say Akron on them.

Dude! I am sitting at the keyboard right now, WEARING my Atlas jersey (2010 version, similar to the one on top). I got it on e-bay for like $25. Lady in LA sells all Mexican League jerseys. Wore it at CSU-Northridge OT win last Sept. :wave: edit: BTW -- off topic completely: working in the enviro eng/hazmat biz, I've found many and various types of industrial oils, greases, adhesives etc. still being manufactured in the Akron area. Had to write to Akron Lubricants few yrs ago for an MSDS, they're address was S. Main St. This past week our fire chief told me that fire dept's (also heavy equipment shops) across the country use parts from Akron Brass Co., which apparently moved to Wooster, which is on the boxes I see.

Wow thanks!!! I have a new favorite FIFA 2012 club!!!

This forum and social media are perfect examples that most people (general public, prospective students, prospective benefactors, prospective sponsors, not to mention $$ALUMNI$$) do not understand the complete definition of "polytechnic".  That is why the rebranding is a very bad idea. And a PR nightmare.


Not to mention the constantly backpedalling Scarborough, or his son making an ass out of both of them. e5142636.gif

It doesn't say Akron, but Wolverhampton's shirt sponsor was Goodyear for about 10 years in the 90's. For an entire list of vintage Wolves shirts to buy.
