    Yeah, until any of that happens, I'm more than okay with leaving politics out of the wrestling threads.

    I agree with pretty much all this. I understand why everyone bitches about the Cowboys' mismatched colors, but I don't get why it seems most people's go-to solution would be to redesign the white jersey in the dark jersey colors. Navy and silver is a nice enough color scheme, I suppose, but it's not exactly unique. But if you go back to the 70's, Dallas had a truly unique color scheme... royal blue and metallic blue-silver. Back then, they had no trouble getting the colors to match. This was before they went with the nasty greenish pants. Check it out... That helmet definitely has a bit of blue in it... not just a standard silver shell... and matches the pants very well. And my perfect would, Dallas cleans up their color scheme by revisiting this classic look. All blues would be a slightly dark royal, all grays would be a slightly blue silver. And as for the occasionally needed dark jersey, just update this awesome look... (And I hear it's safe now for me to bring up how great those sock stripes are.)

    In Flanders Fields the poppies grow Between The Crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the DEAD. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Love and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders Fields Take up the quarrel with our foe; To you from failing hands we throw The Torch; Be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We Shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders Fields. Tomorrow, 11 November, is Veteran's/Armistice/Remembrance Day. Please take the opportunity at 11:00 AM Local Time to pause for two and silently remember the soldiers defending our country and serving overseas, the veterans who came home, those who are still missing in action, and for the soldiers who died while defending their own freedom so that others can have the freedom they deserve. "....They Shall Not Grow Old, As We That Are Left Grow Old Age Shall Not Weary Them, Nor The Years Condemn. At The Going Down Of The Sun, And In Ther Morning, We Will Remember Them...."

    I feel like I've improved quite a bit over the course of this series. As a result, some of my earlier logos look pretty poor compared to some new ones. So I'm going back and updating a few identities. I'm not sure how many I'll get to, but here's the first one. For reference, here's the progression the logo has gone through since I first attempted it a year ago. C&C appreciated! If you have a suggestion for a team that needs work, feel free!

    A pretty out of the box design. Philadelphia Flyers I went and used Icethetics as inspiration for this one. Apparently, the Flyers considered using teal in the '90s, so I figured "Why not?" and implemeted it in a Flyers/Kings mashup. I know it's a lil' freaky, but what so you think?

    I have family members who have served in Korea, Vietnam, and WWII. There are so many who didn't Iive to tell their tales, including members in my family. So many who put their lives on the line in these wars (and WWI as well), from the USA and the Commonwealth alike. To those who served, to those who are still alive, and to those who are still serving in the USA and the Commonwealth alike, they all be remembered and honored. Thank you. Happy Remembrance Day/Armistace Day/Veteran's Day

    I'm always of the mindset of "If you're going to be bad, be really bad and/or really entertaining". And going 0-for the season does fall into that. But it's just sad. We knew they didn't have much of a chance entering the season. They've used six QB's this season...you don't even have that many QB's in camp. This is the team that's basically closest to the capital of football. One of the legacy franchises in American football history. To see them reduced to a punchline for the last 20 years is painful. I mean, it's funny to see that woman's Browns jersey with all those QB's names on it, but I can't imagine just seeing my team whiff and whiff and whiff on finding that long-term answer at quarterback. They've tried drafting the QB's that were awesome in college, including a Heisman Trophy winner. They've gone the free agent route, including a couple QB's that played in, or even won, the Super Bowl. They've gone after the traditional QB's, the athletic and mobile QB's...you name it, the Browns have tried it. And they've been wrong answers each time. They've had to have cycled through 20+ QB's since they came back in 1999. One playoff appearance, two winning seasons, am I right? It's hard to do something 20+ times and not have at least one attempt be successful. I feel for them and their fans. It's just so hard to explain. The Colts had one bad season in 20 years, and they happen into Andrew Luck. The Packers took Aaron Rodgers after he fell hard in the first round. The Patriots lucked into an all-timer with Brady. The Saints got lucky in that Brees failed a physical in Miami. The Cardinals were able to talk Carson Palmer to keep playing. Hell, the Cowboys caught fire with Dak Prescott. The Redskins drafted two QB's in one draft...and have had success with both. We've seen other Heisman QB's do well in recent times. But the Browns, for whatever reasons, just haven't found that luck. Does anyone remember the Cleveland Cavs back in the early 80's? The team was so bad, their front office was just so inept....the NBA gave them extra picks just to get their crap together. At this point, I wouldn't care if the NFL gave the Browns some free supplemental draft picks so they quit becoming a joke. The Falcons gave the Browns five picks in order to draft Julio Jones. If I remember correctly, not only are those five drafted players no longer with the Browns...they aren't in the league at all.

    Well, everyone, it's been an interesting run. But this thread has finally taken the turn we all thought it might, so it's time to take Old Yeller out back.

    Does anyone else feel like the Cowboys, I guess road jersey, is too busy and dated? The two outlines around the numbers, the wordmark that could be white instead of white-bordered, the 5-striped collar, and the sleeve caps with stripes AND a logo... the jersey feels more like a cousin of the 9ers old look than it does contemporary, and I think it gets more credit than it deserves simply because the colors match.

    I don't know how unpopular this is (the second Raptors logo might be more unpopular), but this is the worst Raptors logo. If you took away the wording, the first thing I would have told you this logo was for would be Predators or something more generic; there is no coorelation to a Raptor. They completely eliminated the Raptor from their branding. Both other primaries, even the purple one, were better than this. At least you could tell they were for a team called the Raptors. This logo is another uncreative logo with a basketball. If you wanted to do something with a basketball, use this: This is a better logo. You bring back purple yet still have red, black, and grey. It has an actual raptor as well. Refine the outline a little, especially on the head, and you got yourself a winner. --------------------------- This: is better than this: The first one shows refinement. It looks like an actual Florida Panther. Both have flaws, but the first one flows better, too. The giant paws in the latter make it seem like the panther is jumping at you, but in the end distort the logo. The worst thing about the second logo are the legs, feet, and tail. The tail swoops in front of the legs (or appears to) and the paws look like little stubs facing off to the left. Maybe he isn't jumping but rather tripping...? Neither logo is perfect; the first one has a weird cut-in in the back of the neck. But this design is all over, making the logo flow better. Florida made a good call with the first one as the primary.

    Re: Atlanta Hawks' new D-League Team http://news.sportslogos.net/2016/11/10/atlanta-hawks-will-have-local-nba-d-league-team/ Personally, I think Thrashers would be great. It's too good a name to not use again. Has local meaning being the state bird and there's a lot of 'thrashing' going on in the paint of a ball game.

    I'm no fan of Trump, but that logo is infinitely better than any of his campaign graphics. A little too much open space below the White House, but that's not a significant hindrance. Not that it'll be used in these formats, but it would look great as a lapel pin or a plaque. I still love the simplicity and beauty of Obama's "Office of the President-Elect" logo (which was the first time the President-elect ever used special graphics, I believe). Gorgeous font, and the rendering of the coat of arms is beautiful:

Bernie Federko unveiled the Alumni Jersey in the pre-game broadcast. It's beautiful!

    In defense of the practice, if is a ONE DAY thing. The Royals went full year because it had been so long, gold's in their color scheme, and quite frankly out of the last three champions they had the least iconic and sacred uniform. I don't expect the Cubs to wear gold around their logos on their home uniform the whole year. Also, the comment on the blue at home for Opening Day was a joke, although considering they won in those uniforms, the more I think of it the more I wouldn't put it 100% out of the realm of possibility.

    I know it's not a popular opinion around here... but I actually agree with this sentiment. Block's aren't bad, but I like some of the more unique fonts out there. The Lions' number font looks great imo:
