    Here's the first team! Burbank Soccer Club Established: 1948 Joined CALPROSOL: 1951 Championships: (1) 1966 Home Grounds: Yoyodyne Park Kit manufacturer: Umbro Kit Sponsor: Dinoco Oil and Gas Say hello to the Shooting Stars! Burbank S.C. was formed by a group WWII military veterans looking for a little fun after Lockheed Corporation's production began to slow at the close of the war. The club grew quickly in following and was invited to join the then California League during it's second wave of expansion. The nickname "Shooting Stars" was chosen by new club owner Walt Disney Company in 1971 as a way to link the city's aerospace and film industries. Burbank historically wears Blue-White-Blue as their primary kit. The club crest features a hexagonal shape derived from the city seal. Recently, Burbank have built a tradition of wearing third kits evocative of popular Disney movies. This trend first began in 1995 with the premier of "Toy Story", but became an annual occurrence after the 2003 blockbuster "Finding Nemo". 2015-16's third kit pays homage to the return of "Star Wars" with a reference to Poe Dameron's helmet.

    The black stripe on the black helmet is kind of odd. Minnesota did its best ASU impression at the Holiday Bowl against Washington State.

    Cousin's husband: "Why do they have to be some kind of Knights?" "The owner is really into West Point." "But if they said no, he should just find something else he's into and call them that." "Apparently that's all he's into." "Well apparently he's an idiot."

    Love NYCFC, great idea incorporating the city flag on the collar and the cuffs! Also I really like the first Revs shirt you posted. Can't wait to see what's next!

    Thanks y'all! @New York's Greatest good timing, because NYCFC is next. Turned out a little similar to the recent leak but that's alright with me.

    Actually not. The stadium is not being funded by LA at all. It's an entirely private stadium.

    Thanks for the input guys! I'll look at possibly updating the jerseys, although I prefer the way the logo looks with the red chest stripe. #2 - Erie Otters If you thought the Colts had a messy identity... The Otters similarly have kept the same logo for two decades and it's even worse than the Colts'. The cartoon doesn't even look like an otter at all, there's a huge hockey stick and about 5 colours that blend like crazy. The jerseys are even worse; it's a shame that Connor McDavid had to wear a bucket-fill edge template for his dominant years in junior. Their gold third jersey, however, is actually pretty nice, and forms the basis of this set. For the logo, I went a lot simpler. Rendering an otter that doesn't just look cute is tough, and I went more for dignified. I added in a brighter blue as the third colour to gold and navy and used a more traditional template. Thanks guys, and keep the C&C coming!

    And they did an even better impression than ASU themselves do!

    I call it Urban Country, both for the awful Keith Urban and it's generally enjoyed by, like you said, suburban wannabe cowboys or small town hockey moms. I hate it.

    I don't think I'd call the shield ugly at all., and for teams like the Giants and jets, it makes much more sense to have the shield at the 50 than to keep interchanging fieldturf. (It was the possible chances of injuries, by constantly changing a large patch of turf in the middle of the field, that caused both teams to agree to scrap the team-specific logos for the consistency of the shield) (...also, that field, and Carolina's, looks good with the shield at the 50.)

    The Lansing Lugnuts do not need to dress like the Toronto Blue Jays. The Burlington Bees do not need to ditch yellow for red to mimic the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Chicago Wolves do not need to dress like the St. Louis Blues. The Kane County Cougars sure as hell do not need to dress like the Arizona Diamondbacks. You would do well to refrain from speaking in absolutes on your sartorial preferences.

    Happened in Seattle with the Sonics. - Ownership tears apart team and is combative with naysayers - Ownership makes player interviews to local media very difficult - Ownership moves radio broadcasts to an obscure station no one knows - Ownership demands the public pay for a new arena - Ownership moves the team saying they tried everything they could but the community just wouldn't support the team

    My dad still doesn't understand why they only expanded by one team. "Why would they only expand by one team?" "Well they really didn't want to give Quebec a team." "Why?" "Well they don't want a team in a small, predominantly French, city." "But it was the only other bid." "Yeah." "That's stupid." He's not wrong.

    So, I was browsing through the minor league baseball logo files and I came across a few that are in desperate need of a refreshing or... much more than that. One of the worst logos in my opinion was the Tri-City Dust Devils of the Northwest League whose main emblem is rudimentary at best. I also felt their design as a whole was dated, so i really wanted to take them on. I don't know if I'll work on a few more teams for this alongside my Updates & Overhauls thread, I'll just have to play it by ear, But I will be posting uniforms for the Devils. So, here is my take on the Tri-City Dust Devils: C&C is appreciated, Thx!

    Have it heat pressed on then bring it to a mom and pop shop to get it actually sewn on

    Here are Edmonton's Jerseys,logos and court as well as a new title page withe the updated divisions and Montreal. For Edmonton's jerseys I went with a wild design that follows the one from the hood of the primary logo. This design is also on the shorts and I think that these unis would definitely draw some attention for the team. The third jersey uses the wordmark with another busy design that has a big maple leaf from the secondary on the side of the jersey. And here is the new title page

    I'll work on the Houston font today to see if I can fix anything. I know I have at least one team with pinstripes left in the series, but other than that I'm not sure where else they would work. The blue hat can certainly be used with the yellow jersey on occasion, but I at least wanted to have the option for a yellow one.

    No thanks. Stick with sewn-on logos.

    Another gem, from my sister. "What's going on with the Las Vegas team?" "They got their trademark denied. Some small university in upstate New York has the same name." "Don't they have lawyers to figure this stuff out?" "You would think." *she rolls her eyes*

    Yeah, same. Conversation avec sister's boyfriend going to school for marketing, about Point #3 of mine up there: "Well, the league wanted Las Vegas and Seattle to buy new teams, but no one in Seattle wanted to buy one, so it was Las Vegas and Quebec, and the league didn't want Quebec." "But that's where hockey is from!" "I know, they want to go where hockey isn't from." "I guess that makes sense in theory but wouldn't they still want to go where they know it's popular?" If nothing else, it's reassuring to know that people who really like hockey but don't deep-dive into NHL stuff can figure this self-evident stuff out. Used to be a time when the diehardiest of diehards were the ones banging the drum for Quebec/Winnipeg/Hartford, now the hockey nerds are the ones who are like "NYEEEEEERRRG, Canada sucks, PK Subban is much better off in a state that once fought a war to preserve slavery, in a city whose primary industry is making music for racists"

    I feel like it's almost a guarantee that the Pistons are changing their logo. It's been said they were waiting for Nike to come in, and now not only is Nike coming in, they're also moving back to Downtown Detroit. Perfect timing.

    The Steelers need to go back to block jersey numbers immediately. This is the most intimidating sports uniform of all time

    Only reason I mention it, the only way to get an official winter classic patch or 50 year patch on a Blues jersey from the authentic team store is by getting it heat pressed on. I'm a fan of all sewn on but if it's the only option then....I dunno.

    The Steelers' color rush uniforms are indeed beautiful (getting past the monochrome). I wouldn't mind those being paired with our usual gold pants for a 3rd uniform combo.

    There will be one PSL for each team - PSLs are surcharges on season tickets. Chargers will operate their own ticket operations, I assume.

    I agree with you that the tacky, overdone Brandiosity that seems to be overtaking Minor League Baseball is, on the whole, a loss for good design and branding. Yet there are some recent examples in the affiliated minors that show a competent, unique identity that eschews the kitchen sink approach can still occur in the morass of forced wackiness. I am not 100% opposed to minor league clubs copying the parent's identity, so long as some character unique to the farm team is implemented. I think the South Bend Cubs did this very well. Going to hockey, because I'm much more familiar with its lower tiers, the old Iowa Stars of the AHL tweaked a major-league identity to the point where they were dressing better than their parent club; the current Iowa Wild are a shining example of a team that couldn't be bothered to do anything but change the location name on the logos. And slapping the Rockford IceHogs' cartoon pig on the front of a Chicago Blackhawks jersey is incongruous as all get-out.

    I'm not much of an artist but I'd like to put some time into it if I could only find the time. I took an introductory art class to fill an art credit at my old school and for the last project we had to put two or more separate photos together and paint them with respect to a certain color grouping. I chose the complementary colors orange and blue, using a photo of an iceberg, choppy seas, and an orange and gray sky and came up with this. It's not perfect but for a first time painting, I'm pretty proud. I think the left side of the water is pretty solid while the right side is pretty bad.

    Tonight was one of the ugliest NBA uniform matchups I have ever seen, possibly THE ugliest NBA matchup I have ever seen in my 20+ years of watching: Boston in their gray sleeved alternates at Indiana in their "Hickory" uniforms. Not only the ugliest, but possibly the most unnecessary and incongruous, which just adds to the actual ugliness.

    Peach? Orange? Papaya? Mandarin? Well, at least, according to Nike, it's a fruit, so everybody was close: http://www.eastbay.com/product/model:268781/sku:54551417/jordan-extra-fly-mens/blue/red/ Deep Royal Blue/Bright Mango/Concord/Barely Volt

    Upon further inspection i would say Mandarin, around 40% into the ripening process. Edit: 43%

    Pet peeve for me last night: Clippers (wearing black) playing at the Kings (wearing baby blue throwbacks), and the ESPN score bar is red (LAC) and gray (SAC). As visual cues go, not helpful at all. ESPN absolutely has the capability to switch the colors to match what the teams are wearing (and there are lots of examples of them doing it in the past). Wonder why they didn't bother here.

    Super Bowl XXXIX Cedric Cobbs Pat's jersey. Ironically he was inactive for the game. 2009 Saints Brees jersey that I made myself for a Halloween costume. Cobbs, Polomalu that I made for Super Bowl XL, and Brees.
