    For those who are "soccer rookies"... Soccer clubs the world over have had corporate logos on their jerseys for a long long time.. In fact when a team does not have a jersey sponsor, they are seen as not really a pro team.. Such as the whitecaps when they were in USL last year, they did not have a jersey sponsor. To die hard soccer fans, not only here but to the rest of the world,.. not having a sponsor logo looks kind of amature, because it means you aren't a big enough team to get a sponsor. As a soccer fan myself for a long time, that's how I see it now.. To me a club jersey is almost incomplete without a sponsor. To a soccer newbie/rookie, this might seem wierd at 1st,.. Just like to a soccer fan going to a 1st hockey game would find it really wierd how they have to interrupt the play of a hockey game just for commercials on tv. Doesn't make sense to a hockey fan rookie,.. just like it doesn't make sense to a soccer fan rookie, that there are sponsor logos on soccer kits. Here's a termanology guide for you: Other Sports play on a Field / Soccer is played on a pitch Hockey has goaltenders, goalies / soccer has goalkeepers, keepers Hockey has forwards / Soccer has midfielders & strikers Hockey has defencemen / Soccer has left back, center back, right back Hockey has a farm team / Soccer has a reserve league Hockey has a penalty shot / Soccer has a penalty kick or simply a "penalty" Hockey has a national team appearance / Soccer has a "cap" Hockey wingers pass the puck to the slot / Soccer wingers cross/center the ball into the box Hockey has opening faceoff / Soccer has kickoff Hockey leagues have games / Soccer leagues have matches Hockey Goalies have a crease / Soccer keepers have a penalty area Hockey & Soccer both have: Hat Tricks / Shots / Shooting on net / Shutouts Hockey gives 2 points for a win / Soccer gives 3 points for a win Hockey fights happen on the ice / Soccer fights happen in the stands Hockey fans only chant when the team scores / Soccer fans chant non-stop for 90 minutes.
