This reads like a copy-and-pasted press release from LifeVantage. I for one am not thrilled with RSL's jersey sponsor switching from one MLM to another. What, were EnergySolutions, Vivint, and the payday loan guys not interested?

Definitely thrilled for the playoffs. Go RSL, with or without your shady jersey sponsors!

Ugh. Another MLM! I was looking forward to the day that XanGo's sponsorship ended so we could get a more respectable sponsor. But, hey, the Galaxy have Herbalife....

I agree with what others have said about MLM companies as jersey sponsors. It would be nice if I could purchase the product being advertised without joining someone's down network. I'm not happy about it.

Shirt sponsorship is as much a part of football culture as drums in the stands--so I'm all for it--but why does RSL insist on lame partnerships with MLM hokum? Up to now I've refused to buy a shirt because of the Xango sponsorship, and now I'll have to continue to refuse... (I won't buy a Galaxy/Herbalife or Dallas/Advocare shirt either, just for the record). Philadelphia/Bimbo or Chivas/Corona, now there are some shirts worth owning.

Intermountain Health Care? Key Bank (or even Zion's)? Delta Airlines (maybe Skywest? Please?) Sorenson Medical or Huntsman Corp? Anybody out there in the Utah business community stepping up for me? Even Larry H. Miller Dealerships would be a better shirt sponsor. Can RSL really not find anything better than an MLM partner? Come on, help a brother out!

How about "Real Salt Lake" or "RSL" on the front of the jerseys? That is what I don't like about soccer, the uniform is more like a billboard than representing the area. Sure glad the major US sports don't do this.

Yeah, it's a good thing there's no billboarding going on with the Jazz. Next time you're at Energy Solutions Arena, take a look around during the Zion's Bank halftime show. You won't see any signage for Delta Airlines, the basketball standards don't have ads for Larry H. Miller car dealerships, and there's no Questar blimp flying around the arena. Just enjoy the blessedly advertisement-free NuSkin Jazz dancers.

This lame company is a perfect fit for RSL since Utah is so full of wannabe millionaires. Ask ten people on the street and they'll tell you they "own their own business." I love Utah though and you won't find a bigger RSL fan! Go team!
