    I prefer the stand alone trophy patch. It always seemed like a classy and clean look to me

    The Americans took down FIFA. The world now has to call football soccer. It's only fair.

    Just an idea that popped into my head the other day when one of my students was wearing dark gray shorts and a bright orange tank top... Except for the helmet, which is pretty much perfect, I tried to de-emphasize the "tiger costume" aspects of the uniform. On the jersey and pants, I tried to just suggest the idea of tiger stripes, instead of illustrating them. As always... thoughts?

    Chokers for sure, but mediocre? Hmm. Don't think that's quite right. Oh hey, welcome to 2015 They were 12th in the 14-team Western Conference. The only teams that did worse were trying to lose. Mediocre was being too generous.

    Using numbers in place of letters has got to stop. RE2PECT was a disgrace. Even when they did it for Se7en I always thought "the movie is called seven. If you want to use the digit then just use the digit. A 7 is not a V"

    What the hell is this logo supposed to be? I need help. I don't know if somebody already answered this, but I shall do it anyways! It has wings and a basketball because they're a basketball team called the Hawks, and hawks are birds with wings. The flame is supposed to create negative space inside the trapezoid shape to create the visual of an 'A' for Atlanta. Why a flame? Because back in the Civil War Atlanta was burned to the ground by General Sherman in his march to the sea. After, Atlanta has risen from the ashes of their previous city and returned, hence why they call themselves "The Phoenix City." Because a phoenix is a mythical bird that never fully dies, but instead burns to ashes when it dies, and resurrects from its own ashes. This also helps explain how the Calgary Flames got their name, since they moved to Calgary from Atlanta in the late 80's, and were the Atlanta Flames prior. It also explains the future Atlanta soccer team's heavy consideration for being named the Atlanta Phoenix. Hope somebody read all that and helped somebody. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

    Today I come here with the second posting of the crossover series between football and NHL, and the team's time is the Winnipeg Jets. The first shirt was inspired by a very old mockup mine, of Toronto FC, and I tried to play with the two shades of blue. The second uniform was inspired by the traditional away of Milan, while the third shirt was made the molds of Galatasaray, and the colors of the Atlanta Trashbacks that preceded the Jets team.

    If the Cavaliers win the title, let's just hope they don't wear those navy uniforms. The last thing I want to see is those abominations being symbolized with their first ever title.

    Sorry right now I'm focusing on just basketball and I might try my hand at football after I have done a good amount of basketball edits. I'll start working on these this evening but I may not be able to get to all of them because I'm currently taking summer class. And I apologize I just searched "Wizards logo png"on google and I used that but will do!

    Well, I would certainly agree that the brown mask works better on the new uniform. But, trust me, that is not a compliment.

    The new helmets are 100x better as I am not distracted by the gray facemask. Agreed...this should kill all pro-gray facemask arguments. Right. This picture has us all convinced. All I see is a helmet that used to have some character and seemed to belong specifically to the Cleveland Browns has been swapped out for old Bowling Green helmets. Used to have character? OK...if you must make things up to protect your feelings, feel free. I just don't see how anyone could see the facemask swap as a downgrade...a gray mask is the definition of "lack of character".

    Or they could just go with no shoulder logo instead of a logo that doesn't fit at all with their current look. How does the duck mask not fit a team called the Ducks? It's not like the webbed D isn't cartoony anyways.

    Thanks everyone for all of the feedback! Here is my fourth take. -Took out the green from underneath the mouth, changed the structure of the nose, hopefully this doesn't look like any sort of facial hair -Thinned out the eyebrow and adjusted the back to give it more of a point. -Made the ear bigger, it always bothered me how small it was -Made one more change to the mane, added another point in the front -Gave the neck a more extreme curve to reduce the static feel -Adjusted the neck highlight -Rotated the whole logo to a more forward-facing angle

    The Hawks wore a different uniform for every game in the Eastern Conference finals and lost all of them. Game 1: Standard home white Game 2: Throwback home white Game 3: Standard road blue Game 4: Alt road red

    Oh, sure. Little things like that... "First/Second/Third World" ceased to have much relevance once the Cold War ended, since they indicated developed countries (allied either with us or the Soviet Union) and developing countries. By the classical definition, Qatar is a first world country; a developed economy, allied with the United States. But the designation doesn't take into account how much their economy counts on the slave underclass or their appalling human rights record. In more informal parlance, "First World" connotes "free democracy" to many people, and Qatar, as a religious and hereditary dictatorship, doesn't fit that bill.

    OITGDNHL does a tradition that started in 1997 but doesn't actually work until 2004 (and has a less than 50 percent success rate when both choices are made) become a legendary superstition of the game.

    Delly did nothing wrong on the Korver injury. It was a freak accident. He was going for the ball. He was diving down towards the ground, not out towards Korver's legs. People apparently are just looking for things to get upset about and discredit Delly and the Cavs (Reggie Miller, Kenny Smith). What Delly did on that play is literally what we teach kids learning to play basketball: GET PHYSICAL! GET ON THE GROUND! GET THE LOOSE BALLS! I remember playing high school ball and we had a drill we did every practice. There would be 2 lines, a layup line and a charge line. The layup line had to take it hard to the basket and try and score through the charge line. The charge line's responsibility was to stand in and take the charge. After that, the coach under the basket would grab the ball and roll it out towards the 3 point line and the layup player and charge player had to sprint and dive for the ball. The whole point was to teach us to be tough and get the 50-50 balls. Anyone who says Delly made a dirty play is just butt-hurt and trying to find something to discredit the Cavs about. Delly literally has no history of dirty play. If you want to call him out for the Taj Gibson play where, once again, Delly was getting pushed in the neck and back by Gibson (people ignore this in the replays... pushing around the head and neck is considered dirty in the NBA), then when Delly finally got trampled, he did a minimal leg lock. Yes, he is guilty of that, but it is far down the list of egregious acts that happens through the course of the game. When it comes to the Horford ejection... how are people continuing to ignore the fact that Horford PULLED Delly down to the ground by the shoulder. People also ignore Demarre Carroll who was under Delly's legs, contributing to Delly falling. I am being objective. People have forgotten how to look at things without bias. I think people are clearly holding SOMETHING against Delly (Miller, Smith) because he's a little white kid from Australia with a goofy accent. It's a complete contradiction. All these commentators (Miller especially) talk about "ohhh the Playoffs are different. Its more physical. Its more contact. You gotta be tougher... its a different level in the Playoffs." You can't have it both ways. It is 100% clear that Delly had no intention to hurt Korver OR Horford.

    I don't know anything about emails (everything I've ever received from him was professional), but I have absolutely no problem with him running his blog his way. He essentially created this whole sub-set of sports journalism, and I don't have any more problem with Lukas discussing politics or architecture or music or food than I do Bill Simmons having wandering conversations on one of his podcasts. If Lukas says something I don't like, I ignore it. If he hits on a topic that doesn't interest me, I skip it. And if I ever think I can do it better than he does, there are a lot of places willing to host my blog.

    Have we kicked this irony-free zone around yet? Alan Thicke and Andrea Martin -- yeah, the Andrea Martin from SCTV! -- singing "Welcome to SkyDome, the world's largest retractable-ceiling multi-purpose thirty-story-high Dome!" This is a Simpsons bit in real life more than almost anything has been a Simpsons bit in real life. Andrea Martin! I didn't have the sound on at the beginning so when the names were scrolling by, I thought "Emergency Task Force" was some punk or new wave band from Toronto that only got CanCon airplay hence my never having heard of them before. Nope, turns out it's actually the Toronto police department's emergency task force. Cut to ribbons by Occam's Razor once more, huh. EDIT: "It will become an opera house for Verdi, Wagner, Mozart, and Strauss" it's possible that this thing created Simpsons writers like Athena being sprung from the head of Zeus.

    I don't hate the foot D either. It's far and away the best choice out of those options on there, but I'm still in love with Wildwing. http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/103537-mccarthys-nhl/?p=2439907 Cool colors (literally cool as in the color wheel), distinctive logos, and bold striping. People say "blah 90's, cynical corporate synergy, yak yak yak". And I say so what? The colors are 90's, but why hide from your heritage? Being started because of a Disney movie is as good an origin story (and better in a lot of cases) as anybody else in sports and newsflash - corporate synergy is nothing new in sports. That the Mighty Ducks were the most shameless and least apologetic about it is not their fault.

    Absolutely. And yellow doesn't look good anywhere on a cream uniform. And it's silly to put a blue outline around the yellow outline. To me, the only redeeming quality of these is the great, underused color scheme (sans cream), but the Mariners found their true color long ago and shouldn't go back to these. The Brewers, on the other hand, have meandered in other colors and should return to royal blue and yellow. Agreed. The only change the Mariners need to make is to make their teal-billed hat the primary hat on the home and road uniforms, now that teal is much more prominent in the design.
