As far as logos, colors, etc. The general look you're going for (hopefully) is "neutral", right?

So for some occasions, a Home team logo might be the most appropriate (that occasion would be home league bouts), those fans are going to see that logo and recognize it as the organizing body that is above the (2, 3 or) 4 home teams. So that will appear impartial. Good.

However, when you have a travel bout, that same shirt will look completely biased. So it's a bad shirt to wear.

That should really be the concerns any time you decide on what your NSOs wear. Beyond that (outside of explicit dress codes), do what they want.

I think Shaun's is a good idea, that pink shirt color was chosen partly because the WFTDA is Black, White and Pink, but largely because no one wears pink (with noted exception). I once had an NSO complain about the pink shirts because "who wears pink to a roller derby bout?". Exactly.

To qualify my earlier post:

The NSO's are all from Aurora 88's (the home league).  The bout was all Aurora 88 teams (no visiting teams).  I totally understand and agree with being neutral.

I also like having a league shirt with my name on the back because then people ask more about the league when I wear it outside of Derby.  Meaning that derby knowledge is spreading.

That is fine that you have a shirt with the league logo on it with your name on it "OUTSIDE" of derby, but definitely not recommended for "BOUT TIME". I am sure the Aurora 88's will eventually venture outside of Home team bouts and play someone else. Why not get in the habit of a plain black shirt with OFFICIAL across the back of it and your name on the chest? Then you can wear this wherever and whenever. Of course you can do as you wish, but these are just suggestions in case you get a chance to NSO outside of your venue.

We wear WFTDA-pink shirts, with OFFICIAL and (if possible) our name under that. I need to pick up a black shirt with the same information so I can NSO at other leagues who require their officials to not wear pink.

My own personal opinion have a polo or T shirt in your Derby Team colour with name of team and NSO on it  8)

Why would impartial NSOs be in a team colour with the team name?

Mick's got the right of it. On bout day 'my team' is Official. I'm either wearing stripes, or whatever designation the HR has decided if I'm NSO'ing. (Or allowed me to wear if I had neither and was picked up to NSO)

we supply all our nso's with t shirts for just this reason
