  9. Glad you liked your team, my friend! It was fun working with the color scheme as well as the film theme~League II Bahia de Santiago SC Puerta Loma, Taft Founded: 1925 Last Promoted: 1999 Last Relegated: 2015 Championships: 5 Santiago Bay has its two soccer superpowers, Real Santiago and Bahia de Santiago. Although Bahia has more championships (five compared to Real's three), Bahia, due to poor management in recent years, have suffered a drastic collapse from the higher echelons of League I to the upper half of League II. With new management, Bahia has slowly been re-emerging, hoping to get back into League I within two seasons. As for the crest, I wanted a Spanish-style triangle crest for this team. Real does use red in their color scheme, Bahia embraces it fully in their identity, with a popular nickname for them being "Los Rojos". The pattern in the crest is taken from the flag of Santiago Bay (though the team nowadays plays in the Santiago Bay suburb of Puerta Loma ["hill port"]), with the five championships represented by not one gold star but four stars around the team name and one inside the soccer ball within the team name. The home kit is the Santiago Bay flag (which is sorta styled like the red portions of the Maryland state flag), with the design causing a very awkward square in the back of the jersey to accommodate the number and NOB. The clash kit is a more simple red-and-black jersey. The kits are supplied by Adidas and the sponsor is Vacos Computers (shoutout to reebokNFL for the sponsorship suggestion). Up next, the Club Deportivo de San Juan! Only 15 more teams left! ~ Daryl

  12. The design that had so many people fooled about a month ago was far superior: https://twitter.com/AndrewMLind/status/611254074772713472 Also, it bugs me that the Orioles' cap does not have an orange bill. I understand that they're all following a template and that the color of the bill is dictated by the rest of the cap and the stripes across the front, however, I believe that it should also follow the team's home or road cap template other than the front section. By this, the Braves should also have a red bill.

  13. Oh C'mon. Those numbers look atrocious and you know it.Those Central Michigan alternate uniforms look terrible. Kansas in gray is even worse. Couldn't agree more. I still don't like how much Nebraska and Wisconsin look alike. And, even as someone who is not a fan of Nebraska, please no crazy alternates this year. Nebraska is a school that shouldn't really be tampered with to that extreme, imo. And, even as someone who is a fan of Nebraska, please no crazy alternates this year.

  15. Oh sweet Moses....kill that with lots of fire.I don't mind the All-Star Game logo being moved to the back of the cap (if this is real), but paneled AND (partially) pillboxed? Two of my most hated hat styles personally....yikes. I'd say it's not anything pillboxed. It's your normal six-panel hat. The stripes are just stripes. Ah that's true, my mistake.I still think it's a horrible hat though. Like, it's awful. However, upon looking at the back more, for some reason I do really like the patch on the back of the cap. I even wouldn't be upset if they tried it for the World Series, so long as the patch is still on the jersey as well somewhere.

  16. I disagree, especially about the Titans, who just need to put the stripes from their white pants on the helmets. The solution for those Rams jerseys was to make the numbers white. There was enough yellow on the shoulders. Plus, stripeless pants are amateurish and those Rams pants looked great on their own.

  20. no... the cut is just about the only thing that stayed the same since the introduction of the EDGE system, unless me and you have different definitions of "cut." the way the fabric is cut and shaped and stitched together has remained the same. the fabric returned to CCM-style fabric, and a lot of the players started wearing much baggier sweaters to better mimic the original "cut," but the duck-tail, collar-triangle, side-panel seems, and "western style" yokes for teams like calgary and dallas... that's the cut, and none of those were around for CCM/KOHO. but more on topic, when the washington capitals switched their socks "upside down" a few years into the new look, that was a huge upgrade. took away the capris pants look, and gave them a real hockey look.

  21. By this do you meant that most teams don't put the NFL logo at midfield? If so, I wonder if they are all going to do it this year (and whether teams like Minnesota and Pittsburgh, who share stadiums with college teams will). I could see the NFL asking/telling all teams to do it. Yes. MetLife Stadium does the NFL logo because they don't want to change out midfield turf every game, and that's understandable. But the Panthers do it because the owner says dumb like "We want to honor the NFL because we are just so grateful to the NFL for giving this fine city a team." To my knowledge, the 29 other teams all use their logo at midfield. The Vikings painted their logo at midfield last season, and I think Heinz Field now alternates between the Steelers logo and a white circle with PITT during the Panthers' season. Wow, the owner is kind of out of touch. Found this article on it : http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=nfl&id=3223598 They also don't have a public address announcer or hype music. There is, however, a pregame prayer. Say what you will. Sure, it's great he doesn't budge, but you gotta play up the crowd for a home field advantage. That's why Seattle cleverly designed their stadium in a way that traps sound (sorry to break it to you Seahawks fans, you're not ACTUALLY that loud).

  22. Bumping for some interesting news... F1 may lose Monza for Imola? http://www.grandprix247.com/2015/06/16/imola-emerges-as-possible-solution-for-italian-gp-crisis/ Imola has emerged in the running to return to Formula 1, as a solution amid uncertainty regarding the future of the Italian grand prix at historic Monza, as F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone demands a higher annual race fee. And now, another Italian circuit – the former long-time San Marino grand prix venue Imola – has suddenly emerged in the running to return to the calendar. It follows a meeting at Ecclestone’s London office on Monday between the 84-year-old Briton and Daniele Manca, who is the mayor of the town of Imola. Autosprint and Omnicorse each published separate photographs of the meeting, which was also attended by other Italian officials. “We wanted to show to Ecclestone the will of the town of Imola to get back to formula one,” mayor Manca said, “but above all to do our part to keep a grand prix in Italy.” I don't know about this, I mean Monza is a fantastic track & a staple for F1. Although I'd rather keep a race in Italy. Next up, could Ferrari, give you wings? http://www.grandprix247.com/2015/06/17/red-bull-considering-switch-to-ferrari-powering/ Red Bull is considering a shock switch to Ferrari power, according to a media report published on Wednesday. Sport Bild claims that, fed up with works partner Renault’s poor reliability and performance in the new ‘power unit’ era, Red Bull has been in talks with its arch-rival Ferrari. While a switch to Ferrari would be sensational, Red Bull has actually been powered by Maranello-built engines before, in 2006 (below). A year later, junior team Toro Rosso also began to use customer Ferrari power. At the end of last year, Red Bull’s quadruple world champion Sebastian Vettel moved to Ferrari, but he said recently he retains a good relationship with the energy drink company. However, the Red Bull-owned teams would reportedly have clear ‘B’ status, including a specification of engine 20-30 horse power behind the works Ferrari team. But Red Bull’s Helmut Marko said: “Even a B-version of the Ferrari would be better than the A-version of the Renault.” Hmmm, I dunno but hey Toro Rosso used Ferrari engines & of course Vettel got his first win in a Ferrari powered Toro Rosso. Although this could be bad news for the Haas team, considering they were rumored to be Ferrari's new B team Finally, maybe some hope for Road America & IndyCar! http://www.racer.com/indycar/item/118096-indycar-finally-another-chance-for-road-america It sounds like Elkhart Lake and IndyCar are serious about 2016. Road America president George Bruggenthies confirmed to RACER.com that he's been in discussion with Derrick Walker and is hopeful of bringing back open-wheel after a nine-year absence. "I've talked with Derrick about a potential date for IndyCar next year and we're trying to work something out," said Bruggenthies on Tuesday afternoon. "It's not a done deal but I know our fans want to see IndyCar return and I'd love to see how that new car ran around here. "We're hopeful we can get something done shortly because I'd like to have my schedule finalized by the end of this month." Walker admitted Road America was on the radar. Oh please let this happen!!!

  31. Kane doesn't really get gaudy numbers in the regular season. It's a three-part dilemma: Kane is more of a playmaker than a finisher, the Blackhawks' depth tends to distribute scoring across the team, and no one's really putting up awesome numbers in the Western Conference anyway (yes, I know Jamie Benn grunted his way to a scoring title on the last day of the season, but his team also wasn't built for success in its division). EDIT: also, maturation notwithstanding, Kane is still regarded as a sloppy drunk who beat up a cab driver and gets thrown out of bars in Madison, whereas Crosby has never been seen doing anything wrong because he's never been seen doing anything.

  32. I believe Kane's already passed Ovechkin on NBC's popularity chart. And while Crosby will always get the love because of his status as The Next Great One, NBC shows the Blackhawks just as much as any team. I can't speak about the NHL's own advertising, but NBC certainly hasn't slighted Kane. A bigger talking point should be Toews vs. Crosby.....one gets the fellating while the other just racks up the jewelry....

  35. 1941-42: Logo & Uniform Changes: Realizing that their uniforms are very similar to the Philadelphia Redshirts, the Hamilton Kings change to a primarily blue uniform.The Erie Penguins make a slight adjustment to their white sweater.Montreal updates to maroon pants.Standings: 1. Windsor 2. Philadelphia 3. Montreal 4. Chicago 5. Hamilton 6. Toronto 7. Boston 8. Erie ------------- 9. Detroit 10. New York Season Summary: The 1941 offseason was a difficult one for the PHL. The death of Henry Lewis weighed heavily on everybody. Ed Norman was named league president in Lewis' place and his first move was to donate a new championship trophy in his name, the Lewis Cup. The Windsor Wings picked up where they left off, winning their first 21 games of the season and eventually finishing first overall with star winger George Allen leading the way with 36 goals. Erie reached the playoffs for the first time in franchise history but lost to Windsor in 2 straight. The Chicago Shamrocks capped off a mediocre regular season with a big run in the playoffs, led by the "Kid" line of Willy Redman, Johnny Garfield, and Bob Stevens. Toronto bounced back after a somewhat dissapointing 1940-41 season to reach their second final against the Shamrocks. The Racers won game one of the final and appeared to have the upper hand in the series, until goaltender Marcel Roy was suspended for the remainder of the series for am attack on referee Bernie Smith. Chicago took advantage of inexperienced netminder Bip Gelinas, winning the Lewis Cup in 4 games.

  44. Here's 1940-41; Uniform & Logo Changes: The Erie Penguins are added as the PHL's tenth franchise. They wear black and white sweaters with "Erie" running down the front.Standings: 1. Montreal 2. Phialdelphia 3. Windsor 4. Boston 5. Hamilton 6. Toronto 7. Chicago 8. Detroit ------------- 9. New York 10. Erie Season Summary: The PHL kicked off it’s second season by introducing it's first expansion team, the Erie Penguins. With the addition of the Penguins, the league now stood at ten teams, with eight now making the playoffs. Erie purchased the roster of the struggling Moncton Lions of the Canadian Minor Hockey League and recruited some young players of their own as well, the result was a last-place finish. Montreal dominated the regular season with a 33-4-3 record to take first place overall, while the Philadelphia Redshirts dramatically improved to second-place on the stellar play of second-year goaltender Bill Lawrence. In the playoffs, Windsor managed to take out the defending champion Toronto Racers, before upsetting the Montreal Royale to advance to the league final. In the finals, the Wings swept the Hamilton Kings in 3 straight games to take the championship. Tragedy would strike shortly after, however, when league president Henry Lewis was found dead in a Windsor Motel the morning after game 3. Doctors said he died of a heart-attack.

  45. My personal wish when Nike goes back to being the apparel company of the NBA is to go back to the Dri-Fit technology that they did back in the early 2000s. Those were good looking and better maintained jerseys and shorts. In fact when Adidas first got the NBA contract, they kept the Dri-Fit look up until the 2010-11 season when of course they went extremely downhill when they decide to do things their way and went to a thing called "Rev 30" and became an eyesore to watch, and will be for two more seasons. I know its wishful thinking but I always loved the Dri-Fit uniforms that Nike, Reebok, Champion, Adidas, etc. created 12 years ago in NBA and college sports.

  49. I don't understand this argument for a custom uniform. What does it matter what template it is? The template is simply pieces of stitched together fabric. I'd say a custom uniform is anything that is unique to a specific team. It's very simple. Now, 90% of the teams wear the same templates anyways and the new trend is to create unique fonts and graphics. That's custom.
