    Hillary will be able to attack trump in ways the other repubs couldnt. They've had to hold back somewhat on truly calling out the batspit crazy stuff he says because it's mostly just exaggerations of the garbage they themselves spew to get elected. And they can't alienate the morons who love him because they need those morons too. Clinton doesn't have to worry about what some tea party bonehead thinks... they hate her. She will concentrate all her efforts on independents and moderates.

    Seeing those Avs jerseys back on the ice only highlights how much of a dumpster fire the Avs' current set is. This jersey has everything that the current Avs' uniform doesn't - good design, uniqueness, and a history of multiple Stanley Cup wins. Just go back to it already.

    lol, nope. If anything, it's amazing how he's still underrated. The perception has been for years that he's the Hawks' weak link. Listen, he's not gonna win a Vezina any time soon (or ever), but the Hawks give up the 7th most shots in the league and he's 3rd in save percentage*. Scott Darling would place about 25th. So you just can't plug anybody in there and get the same results. Oh yeah, and dude's won 2 Cups and I've yet to see any subjective ranking of NHL goalies where he even sniffed the top 5. The only place you can find Crawford ranked anywhere near the top 5 goalies in hockey is in any number of statistical categories. So who's out there overrating him? *He's also a solid 12th in GAA, which is a relatively meaningless stat. Save percentage is a somewhat better indicator of performance. But if you're looking for more advanced metrics, he's 3rd in Adjusted Save Percentage and 2nd in Quality Start Percentage among goalies with a minimum 1,000 minutes TOI. For reference point purposes, Crawford has nearly 3,000.

    Love the three concepts above. The second train flag is gorgeous, although I think it could use another colour. Pocatello looks very Denver Nuggets to me, but its a big improvement while still keeping some elements of the old flag. I think the first train concept would have benefited from a different shaped train. Here's Ottawa, our nation's capital. And my redesign featuring parliament, the colours of all Ottawa sports teams, and the Senators alternate jersey. Again, another city that probably didn't need an upgrade, but hey. I was thinking of getting rid of the O and skinnying the tower, but liked it as is Next is Kitchener, Ontario I like the seal, but not on the flag. I kept the Acorn and colours, and styled it like the German flag out of respect for the large German heritage. (Kitchener was officially called New Berlin until the first world war) Finally, Canada's auto capital Windsor, Ontario. I thought about making the gear into a W, but it was beyond my art skills. I made the gear rose-red, to try and preserve both elements

    The Rockies are in need of a rebrand. Their whole package is stale, the logo is dated, their pinstripes are White Sox knockoffs and from any distance you can't tell that purple is even one of their colors, and I think they could execute their awesome name and striking color scheme in a much better way. Let me know what you think! ( Click on the full presentation image and then click "Full Size" and then click the image and youll see it at full size. )

    My new neighbors arrived sometime this month, and they're absolute jerks. A huge family of them from some weird Mediterranian country or something. Totally not normal like us. They're always wondering the streets around dawn whooping it up and terrorizing my dog. It's one guy and all of his "ladies". Every time I pass him and his clan, he stares at me and puffs out his chest like he's so tough. I'm real close to making this guy my dinner. Also, he's one ugly SOB. I snapped a picture of him today to show just how aggressive he gets with me. Oh, did I mention that I live next to an open field and my neighbors are turkeys? That might be somewhat important to this story.

    If this were a logo for a restaurant or a hotel or something, I'd say its beautiful. For a sports team it just doesn't work, its too benign and serene. Nothing about it seems like a sports logo.

    Just my opinion, but I don't think putting Sanders on the ticket would help Hillary all that much. If Sanders was from somewhere like Texas or Florida, I think he'd get a more serious look because he might help her carry a big state. Being from Vermont, he's not going to help put up big electoral college numbers. Does Sanders have any particular experience that would help Hillary? For example, I think one of the reasons President Obama went with Joe Biden in 2008 was because Biden had experience in areas Obama was weak in. If Sanders could help in that capacity she might consider him. Another thing to consider is that the vast majority of Sanders supporters are going to end up voting for Hillary in the general. That being said, this election has been anything but predictable so who knows what might happen?

    I like what you've done with the Rockies. The logos evoke the team name far more effectively than the current logos, and the font nicely cleans up the original's aesthetic. Finding ways to present clear keylines is an excellent approach to the logos and fonts, and I think you made it work within the identity. I also like how the cap logo uses the Colorado flag motif (which is a little overdone in some other identities - i.e. Avalanche), but gives it a "Rockies" spin. The uniform template works as well, giving a slightly modern take on a traditional look (placket and arm stouache). I would like it a little more if the mountain striping was more cuff-like (a la the purple/teal/black Diamondbacks alternates), but that's a minor gripe. I do find issue with a few things. Namely, the use of purple on both the home and road uniforms. The all-purple cap really should be the home cap (especially given the purple undershirts, belts, and socks), and your home cap should really be the road cap (tying in the purple bill with the purple text on the jersey). I think those changes would really improve the uniforms' cohesiveness. On a larger note of cohesiveness, the purple cap/undershirts/belts/socks should really be on the road uniform too. I dislike when teams flip their color dominance on their home and road sets, but that's more a matter of personal preference. All in all, fantastic work!

    I find it hard to believe that when I was younger I really liked the 49ers uniforms in the early 2000's. Once they brought out the Montana throwbacks several years later, everyone realized how much better it really was. As for the black alternate, it's really stupid. If they want an alternate they should just wear the 1994 throwback. I love that look.

    FC Corvense This should mark the halfway point in the series. The sixth team in the PLA is located on the least populous island in the Azores, Corvo, portuguese for crow. So, it's obvious to see where the inspiration came for this identity. Probably not a big enough town/village for a football team, but I wanted to have each island represented. First two are quite modern monochromatic looks, with a throwback third. The predominant colour here comes from the bird, with red representing the formation of a protected area on Ilha Corvo, the Caldeirão, remnants of the last volcanic activity on the island. Commentary and critique appreciated.

    YES! I love the yellow helmets but they just don't suit that jersey in my opinion. I still long for the day Nashville brings their last navy third back and make a gold version of that. Wow, that would be one nice looking pair of jerseys.

    Stole the words out of my mouth, that uniform looked spectacular yesterday. If the team had made an Edge version of it for the real outdoor game, the process could already be underway. Instead we get the get the half assed, click and fill, with the amputated Rockies logo. It bears repeating that this team is clueless.

    I came on here to say just this. The logo they have now is pretty solidly known for the Garnett era...with Towns and Wiggins coming along, now is the perfect chance to rebrand around that beautiful alt that most fans like more than the primary anyway. I also think the Grizzlies identity is starting to get a little stale...I wish they found a way to somehow merge that identity with what they had in Vancouver.

    Alternate histories are fun so for silly goofs let's say Elway actually deciding to play for the Colts keeps them in Baltimore. That changes everything. The St. Louis Cardinals were now the next team looking to relocate and at the time that would’ve had Indianapolis, Phoenix, Jacksonville, Memphis, and others vying for them. In 84 the Colts chose Indianapolis over Phoenix because they had the best stadium situation at the time and the city was offering a better deal. The team was the primary tenant at a brand new dome and you’d figure if Indy was open the Bidwells would make the same decision as the Irsays. So now you have the St Louis Cardinals becoming the Indianapolis Cardinals. - The next relocation/expansion was the Raiders/Rams Los Angeles exodus in 1995, but Al Davis wanted to leave LA long before then. He had a deal to move back to Oakland in 1990, but it fell through. So with an open spot in Phoenix Davis moves the Raiders to Arizona in 1990 and you have the Arizona Raiders who still play in the greater Phoenix area to this day. - 1995 Expansion process: with Baltimore taken that’s one fewer group bidding for an expansion team, but you still have the same groups and cities looking to get in – St. Louis, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Memphis. Charlotte was the gimme so they get the Panthers. St. Louis’ bids fall apart and Jacksonville stuns everyone is granted a team. So we still get the Panthers and Jaguars in 1995. St. Louis still doesn’t have a team. - The Rams are a tricky case in this timeline because that would mean they’d have the whole city to themselves for 5 seasons. Maybe a stadium deal gets worked out in that timeframe, but going off what actually happened and the city not working to secure a new stadium for either team let’s say Georgia Frontierre still moves the team to St. Louis for the 1995 season. - 1995 season. The Browns and Oilers are both looking for new homes. Baltimore where they wound up is taken, St. Louis is filled by the Rams. That leaves LA open, but these alternate Browns choose not to move there for the same reasons they chose not to move there in our reality. Modell briefly flirts with the idea of Nashville, but spending the 1996, 1997, and 1998 seasons in small temporary venues isn’t going to work for a broke owner. With no viable cities left Modell decides to hold off for at least a year. The Browns draft Ray Lewis. Bud Adams isn’t scared off by the vagabond lameduck seasons in Houston and Memphis and the team finally settles in Nashville in 1998 and their new stadium in 1999. They would play in 4 different home stadiums in 4 straight seasons. - The extra time granted by Modell to the city of Cleveland gives both sides more space to reach a deal to build a new stadium and they’re able to reach an agreement for new Cleveland Browns stadium which opens for the 1999 season. The Browns develop a championship caliber team and win Super Bowl XXXV over the New York Giants with one of the best defenses in NFL history. of course a lot of that is pure speculation.

    But that's the difference between 1991 and today. Today, the 49ers would have merchandise for sale at the unveiling event, and would be stuck with the new logo for a couple years at least. The merchandising culture has had a tremendous effect on sports, and not for the better.

    RBFC updated. Thank you PaperThin. My struggle was that I felt the fins blended into the body outline too much, so I added a small stroke to provide some separation. CD Horta The fourth team in this series is located in Horta on the island of Faial. Named after Josse van Hueter, the first settler of the Azores, the community has been a historically major maritime centre. It has acted as a stopover for commercial routes between Europe and the New World, an outpost for Azorean exports (oranges and wine), and a waypoint for early transatlantic travel. This key part of the island's economy is showcased by a scene of a sailing fishing boat inlaid in a steering wheel, and with a blue-and-white checkered pattern present on the shorts and alternate, which is reminiscent of both the city's flag and naval signal flags. C&C appreciated.

    U ES Micalense An incredibly religious society, U. E.S. Micaelense is inspired by the patron saint of the Azores, the Holy Spirit, and by the characteristically coloured hydrangeas on the island: "The man that had the idea to border the road with these plants should have a statue on the island. In no other place, do they prosper better: they need a covering of light, humidity and heat...they are in their place. Their blue, is the blue that adorns the Azores on lipid days...this is a blue that is even more blue, the bunches of flowers of a colour more intense and more fresh. They are in every direction: rising along the roads and the fields forming hedges; they serve to divide the parcels and to cover the peaceful animals." — Raul Brandão, As Ilhas Desconhecidas (1926), p.33 (my own pic) Players for Os Divinos (The Divine) are the three most well known players from the archipelago. Alternate colours drawn from the flag of Ponta Delgada, the capital of Sao Miguel (Micaelense is the demonym) and the sceptre, a symbol in the Cult of the Holy Spirit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cult_of_the_Holy_Spirit) from Azorean Christianity. I realize the primary and clash are pretty close together in colour, but I thought they worked well and the red could be worn quite often. From my last iteration, I have changed the shorts to add the logo and a red stripe near the hem of the shorts. I wanted to keep red in the background on the primary and clash but I do agree, the shorts did need some red.
