I notice in the rules that teams are going to have predefined colours for all the games so that the radar is easily visible for both players.

What are the colours going to be ?

Please take into account that some poor buggers ( me for instance ) are slightly colour blind in red and blue etc so these colours would not be ideal.

I would suggest light blue for one team and maybe yellow for the other so that the white ball can still be easily spotted.

As long as one team is a Light Colour (All White or Yellow) and the Other is a nice Dark Colour (Black, Blue, Red etc.) i'll be happy. Tis very annoying on a TV trying to play with a Team in Blue and one in Red, you can't tell the difference !!

I was assuming we would go with the default friendly kits on yellow/black stripes and a team in red. You can see them well on the scanner and a tv still does them justice.

I agree with Steve. The default colors are the best option. Else, would lead us to a lot of trouble and misunderstanding!

I do not mind the default colours but they are the old Arsenal ones!

Maybe plain white(p1) & black(p2) is good.

I certainly like playing as a whole white team, I usually set the Germans to all black. You know, good vs evil etc. No offence intended to our German Members tho. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Can't say I ever found that a problem, the ball moves in such a different way to the players that it's easy to spot. Plus the fact that I tend to look at the scanner when I have the ball so I can look further up the picth to make a long pass.

Not to mention that the ball is spotted bigger in the scanner than the players.

Yes admitedly having white players on the radar is rarely a problem but I have found it is occasionally thats all I know.

The default friendly kits will do fine.

One more vote for the default kits..although may I humbly ask that: if the two opponents agree, can they pick their own colours?
