  1. With the Rams returning to L.A. and now gradually changing their uniforms to remove the gold color by 2019, perhaps their current logo could use some inspiration from their past one.

  8. I just want Virginia Tech to honor the the 10 year anniversary of this historic event with special uniforms November 1, 2007 Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech, who usually wears white at home is wearing gold. Virginia Tech is wearing white and 4 players jerseys have been stolen. Georgia Tech supplied the 4 players with white Georgia Tech uniforms and this is the result. Like I said I'd love to see uniforms that commemorate these amazing jerseys.

  15. I wasn't sure where to put all of these, so I figured I'd start a new thread of small little finds I found while browsing the 'net -- and specifically, right now -- Getty Images. Most of these are small oddities, difficult finds and what not. I was going to open this up to stuff I found in other sports, but basketball and NBA history in the 70s and 80s has recently captured my attention. Anyways ... some of my finds: GORGEOUS Color vs. Color in Baltimore against the Bullets and Warriors (also note it's Ladies Night!) Royals vs. Warriors game in Phoenix's Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The caption says it was a 1967 pre-season game. Note Rick Barry in the old-style Warriors' jersey. He never wore these in the regular season as 'The City' jerseys were introduced on Opening Night 1967. Larry Nance wearing #6 in the half season right after he was traded to Cleveland from Phoenix. Similarly, Kevin Johnson wore #11 in Phoenix for the half season after he was traded from Cleveland to Phoenix. Interesting font and styling of Tom McMillen's name on this Hawks' jersey. Not sure why the underline? Notice the name on the back of Dave Stallworth of the Bullets. The name was pretty long so the "st" of Stallworth is white to not clash with the blue stripe.

  16. Sorry, but you don't get a trophy or a patch or memorial or a...well...anything nice for driving drunk. Period. Should you manage to survive the stupid and selfish act of drunk driving, you should get a jail cell. I don't care who you are.

  18. Our old friend phantom dreamer keeps getting retweeted by Paul Lukas because he's doing his old blue/yellow trident bit on twitter. No, the Mariners look great as is and don't need changes and definitely don't need to go back in time to a color scheme that never worked for them. They're the only team in major North American professional sports who uses navy blue and teal. I like the trident as a fun batting practice hat, but the S hats are far superior and should be the only thing worn on a regular game hat. The only improvements I'd make would be to incorporate more teal into the regular look. Go back to teal bills on the home hats and use a teal number on the front of the jerseys.

  20. I don't get all the nostalgia for an incredibly bland look. It's navy and white. Period. The Rams had this look for about 10 years of their existence. Every other year, there was some shade of gold, whether athletic or Vegas. There's already a blue-and-white team in the league (Colts). The yellow-and-blue look was so distinctive. Dropping the yelllow looks cheap, like the team was trying to save money by using one color instead of two.

  21. Just wanted to take a moment to praise Jiffy. It's really not even Jiffy. It's "Jiffy" mix. They make mix for cornbread, muffins, that kind of stuff, and have been doing so since 1930. That's all. They don't do anything else. Look at their damn website. It's straightforward, not terribly pretty, but whatever. http://www.jiffymix.com/ They use archaic clip art and have a stupid 1996-era CG rendering of an anthropomorphic box of Jiffy waving a friendly hello to you, the visitor. Glorious. Hello to you too, sir! Look at this damn box: There's been minor variations of this on all of their products, but essentially it's all the same. The red area has some sort of denotation - "America's favorite," or "value something or whatever" - "Jiffy" in quotes because it'll be done in a JIFFY! Get it yet, you stupid jerk? Has some gold medal sticker on there (which it may or may not always be) but I mean look at that sticker, all shiny and important. Red white and blue everywhere, just as God intended. Then as a bonus they show you how goddamn delicious those muffins are going to turn out once you add some egg and milk to this delicious powder. Holy , sign me up! Best part? This stuff is like 90 cents a box. They don't give a rat's ass. It's dirt cheap. The box fits pleasantly into a pocket or hand, and the satisfying heft of it makes you feel like you came out a winner! "8.5 oz for less than a dollar? I'm cheating the system!" All they ask is that you eat it and love it and enjoy your American kickass life. They don't need to rebrand or use some skateboarder kid to make kids want to buy muffin mix. There's no point in a Call of Duty cross promotion or a Ghostbusters tie-in. It's muffin mix. Just buy the , grandma.

  22. Really? I'd say that and Lakers are both the right uniform for Shaq. I'll even throw in the Heat too. But these are sooooo much more wrong for him than the Magic:

  27. Hey guys. Some of you might remember this unfinished series. It was a long concept of if high profile international baseball was started in the 50s, and by this time it would be a massive event. I did like 10 full recaps of the fake tournaments up to 1989, then stopped. The reason? I created my highly popular soccer template and it changed my whole view on templates, and since this was on my old one, and I had so many done for 1993 onwards, it would have been a bitch to remake. Since then I learned illustrator and realized how truly hard I made it on myself without using clipping groups on the sleeve and stuff. Anyways, I've been looking at these concepts forever and wanting to post. I believe the document with all my plans are on my old laptop which crapped out and was replaced. So I think this series is dead. But capitalizing on the WBC trend, I'm gonna show off some stuff. I'll post my event logos, then maybe some highlights for the uniforms. They're all designed to fit that era, and was one of my favorite projects ever. 1993 - South Korea New super power Korea brought the game back to Asia 1997 - Florida This was pre-Rays hype for Tropicana Field, with games in Miami, Orlando, and Jacksonville 2001 - Latin America A massive 4 country bid with Panama, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Venezuela hosting in their best stadium. 2005 - Taiwan They had 4 stadiums new enough to host games, and would host for the first time 2009 - Caribbean I believe the second time these two would host. A joint bid since they don't have the 4 stadiums they'd need individually. 2013 - California LA, San Francisco, Anaheim, and San Diego. So that's where we are now! Might do 2017 with Australia or Mexico. Who knows. Here is all the logos together.

  28. I don't think that navy and white looking too much like the Colts is the problem. The problem is that navy and white don't look enough like the Los Angeles Rams.

  29. Let's pivot away from the logo in and of itself and concentrate on what, to me, is the real problem, which is a navy/burgundy color scheme. Yeah, the distribution of burgundy, slate blue, grey, and black was always a mess for the Avs, but at least it was still a good color palette. The direction they're going in now with the thirds seems very dull and grim to me. There's not enough contrast between the two colors, and they're holding over old design elements but stripping features from them -- the numbers are more or less the old style but single-layer and without the little psuedo-serifs, and the NOB lettering is still arched Trade Gothic. As I've said before about other teams, this is a very bad thing to do. It symbolizes dormancy and resignation: colors fading, details forgone. At a time when most teams seem to be seeing the folly of darkening and fading classic color schemes, here are the Avs doing that. (Not entirely coincidentally, another team moving against the flow of traffic is their sister franchise, the Los Angeles Rams.) Not only is navy and burgundy a bad color scheme, it calls to mind their other sister franchise, the old 1993-2003 Denver Nuggets, another moribund and neglected Denver-based sports team. I'm of the belief that team colors ought to be sacrosanct: you can change up your designs, but fans should always know what your colors are. That, far more than any bad logos they've had, is what makes the Canucks, Astros, and Padres the disasters they've been. I can deal with this lousy rehash of the Hockey Rockies logo, but head-to-toe navy blue with minimal burgundy, which doesn't even contrast with the navy blue, is very ugly and doesn't even stand for the winning history the Avs lean on so heavily as to let Joe Sakic run them into the ground because he's Joe Sakic.

  39. Give me a break. Progress isn't a bad thing. People on this board, and life in general, have a sometimes-regressive fetish for the past. It's tiring.

  40. Hands down: Turn THIS from a reality that I have to live with into a memory that I can repress. No one takes this franchise seriously as it is and now they wear on their heads the worst thing to happen to pro sports. Just black is more than fine.

  48. Here's a fun one I found dinking around Getty Images. This is the logo of the Toronto Towers -- the relocated Cleveland Cavaliers -- that Ted Stepien was going to use if the team was allowed to relocate. Of course the team was eventually sold to the Gunds, teams weren't allowed to trade First Round Picks in consecutive drafts, etc., etc. I never knew there was a mock up logo for the relocated Cavs. OH -- and it should be noted that in the caption the team colors were to be red and white.
