    Today I figured out where the Leafs' jersey design comes from:

    Hey all. I've posted similar projects like this here in the past and just wanted to share. In honor of the NBA season kickoff and Dr. Strange being right around the corner I wanted to unveil my NBA Marvel Logo Mashup Project. This project uses all 30 NBA primary logos. Each logo is combined with a Marvel Comics character. The goal was to mimic each logo as closely to the original as possible. Matching color usage, line weights and fonts. You can see this set and more at my website, wechoosetogotothemoondesign.com Thanks!

    I don't want to pay $170 or more for a jersey that may resemble the ugly Walmart versions along with a retail store's logo on it. However, I'll have to wait and see the whole product and how close they are to the authentic versions. As someone who collects jerseys, my initial reaction to this news is this is not a good thing.

    The idea that the uniforms of Oregon are somehow in any way responsible for their decline is ridiculous. Louisville is wearing a bunch of clown suits and they're 7-1, Oregon is down because all their important coaches left, and they're playing basically all freshman this season. All they need is a good head coach (read, not Helfrich) and they'll be fine. Remember when Michigan was 3-9? Big programs have down years, it doesn't matter what you're wearing on the football field. Hell, Texas is in the dumpster right now and they're anything but a clown suit program. I know this board wants to jump at any excuse to degrade Oregon for their uniform choices (as they've been mostly abysmal recently), and I absolutely hate the fact that we're wearing complete :censored: most games, but give me a break, the idea that Oregon has lost their competitive edge because other teams wear lots of uniforms now is ridiculous. Oregon has a lot more to worry about than that, such as a coaching staff who is stuck in their ways and refuses to adapt no matter the situation, and a team that doesn't care about winning or losing, as well as being almost entirely first and second year players.

    So now that I'm kind of back in the saddle for the time being, I'll share some design work with you. As we all know, Adidas is slotted to take over uniform design for the NHL next season, so I decided to take a stab at what they'll probably do, or what I thin they should do anyways. I plan on doing all 31 teams. Each team will have a home, road, third, and a color rush uniform, as well as some teams having a winter classic or stadium series uniform as well. Like I did in my IHL resurrection series, I'll post each team, and then post the applicable matchups. Up first are the Detroit Red Wings: The Home and away remain mostly unchanged with just the waist stripe being raised up on the home to match the road. The third jersey is a less over-the-top version of the Red Wings' Stadium Series uniforms from the 2015-16 Season The Color Rush Uniform is OBVIOUSLY going to be red, but it uses a double red scheme in the style of the Wings' home and away uniforms: And finally, the Winter Classic (all Original 6 teams get them to celebrate the NHL's centennial) is a color reversal of the Wings' 1927 uniforms that were resurrected for the 1991-92 uniform:

    Hi guys. This is my latest (little) MLB project, a revision of the current Philadelphia Phillies primary mark. I never liked the unused white space above Liberty Bell which has been the main reason to put this redesign into practice. The current Phillies mark maybe isn't one of the most creative or beautiful marks in the MLB, but it's distincitve and therefore has been untouched since 1992. Until now.

    Here are the two matchups for today, the Battle of the Beltway and the two Florida teams! First off is Baltimore and Washington, which are orange and navy, respectively. Baltimore Orioles -Baltimore actually ended up being the only orange team in MLB, and I used their regular orange jersey but with a striping similar to the design of the Maryland flag, inspired by @Victormrey and a few other Orioles designs on here. -The cap and socks are regular for now, but I'm trying to find a way to make them unique for Color Rush. Washington Nationals -I went with navy for the Nats, since orange and red would look too close to each other. -For now I have their regular pinwheel cap paired with the regular navy jersey, since red lettering was too hard to read. -The socks are white to balance with the cap, with the regular thirteen stripes included. And now, here's one of the loudest of all the Color Rush matchups, the Marlins and Rays! Miami Marlins -Before I say anything about the uniform, it's somewhat a coincidence that José Fernández had the teal jersey, but I probably would've switched it anyway, as a tribute to him. Such a tragic and sudden loss of a guy who exemplified love and passion for the game. He will be missed. -I decided to do teal for the Marlins, since it ties in their overall history of the team. I changed the primary color of the wordmark to orange, with black and white outlines. The cap, belt, and socks are orange. It creates a Dolphins-like look. Tampa Bay Rays -Yellow obviously might be pretty unorthodox, but light blue would've been way too close to teal. Besides, this matchup fits the vibrant, sunny Florida vibe I was going for. -This uniform also in turn embraces the "ray of light" aspect of the Rays identity, inspired by @davidrpaige. -It's basically the home uniform in yellow, and the navy hat but with a yellow 'TB.' -Socks and belt are navy, with yellow replacing white in the socks. Let me know what you all think!

    I never paid $130 for a Reebok replica or $300 for an authentic. I certainly won't be paying $170/$360 for something cranked out of the same Indonesian sweatshop with a different brand label slapped on it. Godspeed, suckers, and let's all enjoy next summer's clearance sales together.

    $170 for a replica made by Fanatics (who has little to no reputation as a manufacturer) that may not look too much like the on-ice sweater. That is the most ludicrous thing I have ever heard. Anyone remember back to the early 90s when replicas were in the $60-70 range?

    The Cubs' blue alts are some of the worst in baseball. Like you said, they look like BP jerseys (and are basically the exact BP jersey the team has worn for the last 20 year). My biggest issue is that the logo is so, so awful. It's an absolute garbage logo, and it's used in place of their iconic primary. There's nothing wrong with their primary logo. They need to use it more. It's akin to the Red Sox coming out with an alternate jersey with the socks on the chest, taking the place of other iconic marks, except their sock logo is merely underwhelming and not awful. Put the primary logo on the chest and throw some kind of striping/piping on it. And they really should replace the alt logo with something more similar to the ones they wore in the '60s though '95. And yes, the road grays are bad, but not "I can't believe a franchise that's 140 years old is wearing this crap" bad. Go to something similar to what they wore in the '60s, make a blue alt with the primary logo, and wear it no more than once a week. As for the Indians, their uniforms were perfect in the '90s. Thanks to the admiral, I now notice that the C in Cleveland was too small, and I can't unsee that. However, the set was great other than that. The Indians, like the Marlins, should turn the clocks back to 1995 and take the batteries out. It's good that the Indians found their way back to a respectable look after the awful silver era and the slightly less bad era which followed. But their homes and alts are still worse versions of the '90s set. Just go back to that and admit you made a mistake.

    So, the Cubs are wearing their horrendous alternates against the Indians' navy alternates. The :censored:ing World Series is looking like a spring training game. Good job, you guys.

    definitely have to give the worst vote to Browns/Bengals this past week. man, that was rough. theres enough contrast in all these other matchups that you can easily read team A from team B, but the Browns/Bengals was so saturated in the "loudest" of colors, i couldn't even look. hard to distinguish those 2 teams from another on TV

    Bingo! A renovated autzen and having best in class facilities, and coaching with a new offensive scheme brought them into the elite tier. Uniforms were merely a reflection of the overall financial investment in the program. Great for press releases and blog posts but that's about it. After a while others copy those blueprints and your offensive scheme gets figured out, you have to keep evolving. As much of a prick as he is saban has been the master of continually improving and evolving his program to stay at the top.

    CZECH REPUBLIC So I probably should've made this easier on myself and shortened their name to Czechia, but I didn't because I forgot that Czechia was the official shorthand version. Regardless, I included them due to their group - I knew they wouldn't beat out Germany for the top spot, but I figured they had a very good chance of beating out Northern Ireland, Norway, Azerbaijan, and San Marino for second place and a playoff spot. Looking at the standings now, I feel a little stupid - they've gotten two ties and a 3-0 loss to Germany. Azerbaijan, on the other hand, is in second place with 7 points. I won't complain if that holds, since that means that Azerbaijan gets to go to the World Cup, but I mean... who would've predicted this? Whatever, let's just say that Czechia gets second place and wins their playoff match to make only their second WC appearance as Not Czechoslovakia. Logo stays the same because it's SO COOL LOOK AT THAT LION. Czechia had some of my favorite kits at the Euros this summer, so I wanted to give them something similar this time around. I liked the lion so much that I sublimated it on the front of the all-red home kit. For the clash, I went a little outside of the box and added white-to-blue fading diagonal pinstripes on a white shirt (if you couldn't tell, I was inspired by @BrandMooreArt's OKC Thunder project, which is probably one of my favorite projects ever). This is paired with blue shorts and white socks. Puma sticks around, and the names are those of Tomáš Necid and Vladimír Darida.

    The jock tag on the front was stupid in 2007. It isn't a great idea now.

    Completely disagree. The navy blue pants and equipment goes well with the rest of the uniform. If it were red, that would be way too much red.

    Tribal identity as intellectual property is a very interesting idea, and I agree that it's pretty abstract. It helps to understand that many tribes receive and distribute resources based on bloodline. I knew someone who was part Comanche, and he received a monthly paycheck from the tribe even though he lived nowhere near their reservations. However, the Comanche (like many tribes) have strict lineage requirements, and if a certain percentage of ancestry is not present then those individuals are not entitled to call themselves Comanche or receive the benefits that come with it. So in light of this practice, in which its possible that one's own children or grandchildren can be denied the tribal identity, it makes a bit more sense why some tribes are incredibly defensive about organizations using their name or iconography. I'm also glad to see you bringing up white privilege. I think thats a very key concept that goes missing when discussing these kinds of things. I would argue that our white privilege allows us to choose whether or not we are offended as these organizations were ultimately founded by white man and are still largely owned and operated by white men as well. We (being white people) can choose to be offended because ultimately we have the luxury of being the dominant culture within our society and we are given agency to accept or reject just about everything. However, I would also argue that there's a spectrum to white privilege, and while your first example certainly qualifies, I'd argue that the more egregious manifestation of white privilege is the refusal to acknowledge that what you find unoffensive may be offensive to others, and that the anger and frustration of others holds the same value as your own. Its this latter privilege that I see at the core of this discussion, and its going to be very interesting to see how it continues to play out both on this forum and in the broader sporting culture.

    I get the sense of these responses once the uniforms come vomiting forth: steel gray ("Our research showed that actual knights wore steel.") vegas gold ("We wanted something distinctly 'Vegas' sounding.") black ("All the players on all the teams wear black, right?") navy ("We heard navy sells well." royal blue ("My favorite color so I insisted on it being shoehorned in there.") red ("We heard red also sells well, plus it's aggressive and stuff.") roundel ("We wanted that mix of old and new.") drunk piping everywhere ("My wife thought it would look great.") faux military sigils on the sleeves ("We were pissed that the Panthers stole that idea from the Jaguars who stole that idea from Anaheim who stole that idea from the actual military who probably stole that from France who stole the idea from us, so we felt we had to do them one better!")

    Living in Eugene, I wish I had a dime this year for every time I've heard somebody say something like: "Well, you know, I was always a bigger Duck basketball fan anyway..." "We're gonna make College World Series this next year..." "Everyone knows that statistically, the ladies' track team is the best sport..." My Facebook feed is RIDDLED with comments like that every Saturday night.

    Sad thing is, this isn't a late expansion-era matchup like Diamondbacks vs. Rays where you'd expect that sort of thing. These are two classic teams that have been around for 100+ years and are frankly above bringing Spring Training to October. One white/gray matchup is all I'm asking for, guys! Just one!

    I agree. The orange stripes pop off the navy in a way that navy stripes on orange just can't. Navy should be their primary and they can wear the orange as an alt 2 times a year. That would be perfect.

    Of course, if I'd thought about it, I would have just Googled "Cleveland Indians logo", as the television station must have. And look what comes up: Which leads us to this low-rent merch page: Maybe they created it for this round area rug, and it was mistakenly picked up as genuine?

    In the past decade, the following schools have won a Heisman and been to at least 2 NC games. Alabama Auburn Florida Ohio State Oregon One of these is not like the other. I'll always contend that Oregon's uniform craze was a major contributor to getting their program on the map and the fact that people despise them so much is a testament to how much of an impact they've had on the sport.

    Time for the Giants. The G-Men are one of those great-looking teams from the MLB, that's why I've not make many changes. The home uniform remains the same, dropping the gold from the script. The road uniform uses the same style thant the home, featyring the "SF" monogram. And for the homa alt uniform I kept the same style, using the same wordmark than for the home, instead of the current 70's inspired script. And... Hit the lights! As I've already said, Metallica (one of the first Thrash Metal bands) are based on San Francisco / Bay Area, keeping a close relation to this zone. That's why, as a Thrash Metal lover, I decided to give the Giants a special design inspired by the band:

    Thanks everyone! I've got a couple more teams for y'all today. CÔTE D'IVOIRE I wasn't sure whether to refer to them by their French or English name, so I ended up going with the French version. But yeah, Ivory Coast! The first African team in this series is the West African powerhouse and most recent winners of the African Cup of Nations. I've included the Ivorians for many reasons (who else am I gonna add, Morocco?), and I thought that they deserved a simple look. For starters, the logo is the version shaped like the country as opposed to the shield version. Fun fact - I couldn't find a decent version of the country version! Huge thanks to @raysox for having a version of the logo on hand! For the uniforms, I went fairly simple (again, I know I say this all the time, but if it ain't broke don't fix it!). The home kit is orange/white/orange, with the most noteworthy detail being the silhouette of the country in white surrounding the front number. The clash kit is all green with pinstripes on the front, though this was almost green-and-white vertical stripes as a throwback to their 2009-11 hooped clash kits. I eventually decided against it due to me wanting it to be simple, although this has created problems for me since one of my other teams has a very similar kit to this, so I might try the stripes to see if it looks good (please weigh in on this!). The Elephants are the first team in this series to have kits made by Puma, and the names on the back are Ivorian legends Yaya Touré and Salomon Kalou.

    You are very confident in your assertion, and I'd like you to explain why. If you have info or proof to share, please do. Because, as I said, if that is a fake, that is a fake with an uncanny attention to detail. Plus, "the jerseys were never made" flies in the face of the fact that, well, if it is a fake, it was based on a photo of a jersey that was in fact made, and has circulated 'round these parts for 15-plus years. There's also the matter of the accepted legend that Keenan banhammered these when he saw them hanging in the locker room, an event that would have required an actual manufacturing of the jerseys. (For the record, I'm not fully on board with that story, because if they were that close to making it on the ice, there would have been retail jerseys produced and ready for sale, and Mom & Pop's Sport Shop in Florissant would have still put them out for sale on the racks even if the team never wore them.)

    I like where you're going with this overall, but it needs some improvement. 7 colors is too much for any concept, drop the gold and darker gray and you're good. As for the uniforms themselves, there's no real consistency. I would use the style of the red jersey for the blue jersey and make a white jersey with the same style. The Jets logo with the puck is wicked cool, but I don't think you need two (keep the latter) and ditch a black jersey even though I like it. I know it's a lot but if you tweak blue, white, and red jerseys this will be unique and awesome. Looking forward to how this evolves
