    This is a concept I did for a "Miami" wordmark in the style of the original Florida Marlins brand. All the characters in the logo, as well as the underline, are taken directly from the "Marlins" wordmark. I made two versions: one on the standard gray background, and one on a teal background. Comments and criticism would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    I don't see why that's a bad thing?

    I think their white pants need maroon and gold stripes. With no white anywhere else on the jersey or helmets, the all-white pants look generic and a bit out of place. I think a maroon-gold-maroon stripe would go a long way to alleviate the abruptness of the white pants.

    The Habs have retired 15 numbers for 18 players. Not one of those banners is superfluous. Look up any of the stats of any of those players during their time with the Canadiens and you will see that all of them belong up there. True, the Habs won 14 of their 24 Stanley Cups during a time where there was rarely more than 10 teams. The remaining 10 Stanley Cups were won post-expansion, still more than any other team. A lot of credit to the success of the Canadiens during their history is attributed to their scouting and farm system. Back in the olden days, junior teams were specifically sponsored by NHL teams. So if you wound up playing in that system, that NHL team had your rights. Most of the Canadiens talent were brought up through that system (and yes, about 99% of that talent was Canadian, but only because 99% of ALL NHL talent was Canadian. Montreal did not have the rights to all Canadian talent. There were of course players like Gordie Howe, the Patrick brothers, Bobby Hull, Stan Makita, Ted Lindsay, Bobby Orr, none of whom ever played for the Canadiens. During the same timeframe the Canadiens won their first 14 Stanley Cups, the Toronto Maple Leafs franchise managed to win 13 as well. (What happened after expansion seemingly but both franchises in opposite directions.) Also, regarding that rule that the Canadiens were allowed to draft any French-Canadien players before the rest of league was allowed to draft anyone...there is a little bit of truth to it, but, remarkably, almost none of those players that they acquired through those means had any impact whatsoever with the franchise. (Better explained here: http://www.habseyesontheprize.com/2008/12/2/678036/debunking-the-canadiens-fr ) Credit is due however to how they got Guy Lafleur. In 1970, the Habs acquired Oakland's first-round pick in 1971 in exchange for their first-rounder in 1970. In the 1970-71 season, the Seals were near the bottom of the standings, but not actually in last place. Habs traded one of their veterans to the Kings (who were at the bottom) to help improve the Kings enough to pass the Seals in the standings and the Seals finish dead last, giving Montreal that pick. But, with all this in mind, there is no question about the success and deservedness of the banners in Montreal.

    Exactly. I understand the impulse, but it's wise to wait until the facts are known. All that emotional outpouring, the tributes. All for a guy who killed his girlfriend.

    Thats not a bad thing. Most people around prefer they use the teal anyway. Thats what we were all hoping were going to be the primary aways. Plus more Color vs. Color!

    It's just a fashion jersey anyway. I'm pretty sure something has to not be ugly in order to be fashionable in the eyes of the general public. I'm pretty sure that is absolutely untrue.

    Hello to all, long time lurker first time poster. We're a custom sock company that works closely with ESPN (specifically in college basketball). We travel around with them and create event specific socks for the participants in their tournament. Would love to share our exclusive items with this forum, here are our items for Minnesota vs Louisville in the Armed Forces Classic tonight in Puerto Rico. Drawn from the USCG ships, the socks feature the base logo, ID numbers representative of the event's date, team logo, USCG logo and the USCG Motto Semper Paratus. Note these are gifted to players and it is up to their discretion whether or not they wear them in game, however plenty of teams in past have.

    With the stricter helmet rules, at least the Packers aren't taking the "we'll just wear our normal home helmet with throwback uniforms" route.

    If Rosberg wins the world championship only because of the double points scenario then I will officially be done with F1 until Bernie leaves (or becomes too old/dies. I can't see him ever leaving voluntarily). I am 95% of the way out the door but the competition between Hamilton and Rosberg as well as just the general excitement of the races this season keeps dragging me back in.

    It's sad news and all....but really? C'mon now, don't be overly dramatic on this. This is why you get crap about "Today we are all Cardinals!".... I'm not a Cardinals fan but there's definitely some feeling deep in my gut about him dying. Has nothing to do with the Cards, just that some young guy died. If somebody else had posted that, you wouldn't have said anything. It's just because he's a Cards fan. No, it's because he was overly dramatic about Hancock's death, saying multiple times about how he was in mourning and the like. Got really defensive about his death until it was found out that it was due to drugs/alcohol. Has nothing to do with who he roots for. It's ok to be sad about something, but I think it's a bit much to say you're sick/ill or in mourning over someone you really don't know. Like I said, it's sad, but it's not much different from what you typically see on your local news these days.
