    Yes. I usually post it during the first week of the playoffs.

    It's called humor, chief. Google it.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    Because in that pic its the red orange of the previous color scheme. The new scheme has a different color there.

    2018 MLB Off Season Thread

    Looks like Astros assistant GM Mike Elias will be the Orioles’ new GM. After reading a quick quick article about this (I haven’t watched nearly enough baseball over the last two years to know who this is), first impressions are good. He’s a young guy from a successful organization and was in charge of drafting for that organization. I had hoped we’d hire a young, hungry guy from another organization, so it’s pretty good I guess. Any Astros fans here know anything else to add to that?

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    Looking at them back-to-back-to-back makes the Marlins' red look even more orange.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    No one seems to struggle with telling the Dodgers and Royals apart. Likewise, the Yankees, White Sox and Rockies. I don't see a problem here with these colors.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 9

    I was drooling over the promo pics of the Dolphins uniforms, but they still seem washed out to me in game action. I'm ambivalent about the logo.

    Jeez man you’re still upset about the whole cowboys thing? Obviously we don’t agree on things so just let it go

    They're better than then they were when they had navy worked into everything, but that logo just kills it for me.

    Miami’s uniforms don’t deserve the grief it gets on the boards, IMHO.

    You mention the 49ers-Giants game to possibly be in consideration for best matchup of the year. At the end of the regular season, will you give us a top five best matchups of the entire 2018 season? I’d be interested to see that.

    Staples Canada changes logo

    I would argue that the L being a bent staple is iconic, why go away from that to a bland bracket?

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I feel the lakes need to be in the dark stain... But I'm not sure how it looked on TV( couldn't watch the game yesterday).

    2018/19 NIKE x NBA Uniform Concepts | BLAZERS added 9/26

    Really impressed with the treatment of the Blazers. I would love to see an alt in plaid, similar to last season.
  23. The A on the Prairie Dog's cowboy hat looks like the Houston Oilers logo from a distance.
  24. Have you ever noticed that almost all of Brandoise's logos have a bit of a cookie-cutter design to them? Look specifically at the eyes and mouths of some of their logos (Jumbo Shrimp and Baby Cakes, BlueClaws and Shuckers), and tell me if you see similarities. When they first introduced the Chihuahuas years ago, I thought it was awesome. But then they copied the design elements to other logos they made for teams and IMO, it lost it's appeal.
  25. A good deal for the credit for this method has to go to Frazier Davison, who first started showing people how to make realistic templates in Photoshop. There's been a great deal of interest in the Vicis Zero1 football helmet. I'm going to show you how to make your own unique template using their website. To make a template you need two things, a copy of the helmet or uniform as if it was totally white, and a copy that looks like it if it was totally black. What I mean by this isn't a completely white or black object. Most items that you look at will have shadows and reflected light. Take this Soccer ball for example. Even though it's a white ball, it's not a perfect white. The shadows and reflections give the ball it's shape. Same with a football helmet. Lighter objects are defined by their shadows, darker ones by light reflecting off of them. If you try to just use either Multiply or darken or any single tool, you're not going to get a good image. Let's go with Multiply. We have a black set up for highlights (reflected light) and a white set up for shadows. Just using multiply white is ok but dull and the black is awful What about Screen (which we saw above is a better way to lighten a subject)? This time around the black is, well, it's there. Neither image is dark enough. Let's combine techniques. Now we have a nice solid looking image that runs the gamut of values from light to dark. It comes out feeling real rather than that puzzling "I know something's wrong but I can't figure it out" feeling. What has this to do with the Zero1 helmet? Vicis is nice enough to put up images that will work for the black and white on their website. Go to They have quite the selection of finishes, facemask designs, whether a strap is in black or white and angles. You get to pick what you want AND YOU AREN'T GIVING SOMEBODY THIRTY BUCKS TO GET SOMETHING YOUR HAPPY WITH. Once you have an angle/design you like get a copy with an all white finish and a copy with an all black finish. The white is there to provide the shadows, the black is there to provide the highlights. (it sounds backwards but it's not.) Save the images and then place them as layers in a Photoshop document. They are 1000 x1000 so it's nice and big. Set it up as follows: The top two are masked off to keep stuff like bolts and straps from changing color. The next folder (and it's helpful to lock this away once it's done.) is where the work is done. White image set to Multiply. Black image set to Screen. A copy of the black image set to overlay. Then you have a masked off layer for the Facemask followed by the helmet colors. You're going to want to have the decals stripes, whatever, on top of the base color of the helmet. You'll need to make a mask for the helmet so that the whole background isn't the same color as the helmet. An exampley copy can be found at:
  26. That is probably the best set Tennessee has right now IMO.
