  6. Do you think there could be a change to something that looks like the Color Rush jerseys? A mesh of old school and their current look/colors?

  7. So after entering some teams into @gswansea's WFA Club Championship and seeing @XenonDesigns rebooting the MPL, I decided to finally post the league I have been working on recently. I will begin with posting the first divison teams and then later continue on with the second tier. Vorticoa The fictional country of Vorticoa, which is hypothetically located as an island in the North Sea, the country houses a large francophone population with French being the primary language spoken, however in recent years foreigners have arrived to give the country a lot broader range of cultures. The one thing that unites the nation is football/soccer and with around thirty professional teams spanning across two tiers there is a lot of fan support and rivalry. Below is a map of Vorticoa with city names, each city houses at least one team with some larger cities housing two or more. The capital city of Vorticoa is Viselles which is indicated in red. With that out of the way, I'd like to introduce you to the highest divison in the Vorticoa pyramid, Championnat Vorticoa! Formed in 1988 as a merger of the existing Ligue Nord and Ligue du Sud, which were the North and South leagues, respectively. The aim was to create a nation-wide competition to further unite the nation. Starting off with 10 teams which was later expanded to 14 in 1990 and introduced promotion and relegation in 2000, the quality of the league has grown rapidly and is one of the most competitive leagues in Europe. The title has only been won by 9 different teams with powerhouse Cieux City holding the most titles with 8 to their name. I will begin to start posting teams later today or tomorrow.

  8. Hey Guys, I decided to take another route redesigning the Wallabies Logo. I took some inspiration from the kangaroo on the team's coat of arms. But it still feels as if something is missing. The yellow background is what it'd look like on a guernsey.

  9. A year ago, the Indiana Pacers purchased the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the D-League. Since many NBA teams have put their brand identity stamp on their respective D-League teams (e.g. Bulls, Spurs, Raptors), I decided to do the same with the Pacers: the Fort Wayne Mad Ants have become the Summit City Pacers. Why did I choose Summit City instead of Fort Wayne? Two reasons: Firstly, I didn't want to call them "Fort Wayne Pacers" because that sounds too much like "Fort Wayne Pistons" – and they existed from 1948-57. And secondly, because it's one of Fort Wayne's nicknames (when the Wabash and Erie canal was constructed, the highest point, summit, on the canal was at Fort Wayne). I think it also kind of sounds nice.

  10. Next up is the logos for the Las Vegas Venom. I went with a scorpion theme for this desert city and I wanted a unique name to go with it. I think that Venom just sounds cool and is a lot more exciting than just calling them the scorpions. The colors are sand,orange and black and the secondary and wordmark are also scorpion themed.

  11. I couldn't disagree any more. The D is ok as an alt logo, but the horse head is VASTLY superior to the D. Honestly, the Broncos really aren't that far away from looking totally iconic. If they brought back the navy jersey as the full time home, tweaked the side stripes just a bit, and added just a bit more red to their orange (The color rush set seems to do this), they'd be perfect.

  16. The Broncos should of stayed with navy as the primary Jersey instead of orange and should wear navy pants on the road instead of white.

  17. The shield is also the shape of US Route signs, not Interstate signs. My thought (guess?) is that the US Route shield is a bit of shorthand for "Road Trip!"* * -- Interesting(?) side note -- If you do a Google Image Search for "road trip", the vast majority of the images are of old school two lane roads (with lots of deserts) rather than Interstate highways.

  22. Here are today's two teams, who definitely have two different methodologies about life in the galaxy! First up are the Minnesota Jedi! Uniforms -The Jedi are my absolute favorite characters in Star Wars, so hopefully this set does them justice. -The colors are based off of the two main lightsaber colors, bright blue and green, which also work well with Minnesota's 10,000 lakes and overall nature feel. -Sand and brown are added as accents based off of the Jedi robes. -The home uniform features an off-white look in order to be more natural and aged if you will. The away is all sand to be like Jedi robes. -The striping is white in the middle and bordered by the two common lightsaber colors on the respective sides. -The font is the one used in the branding of the prequel trilogy, which featured many more Jedi and I chose it because of the stoic, traditional feel it has. -The Force Awakens alternate is based off of Luke's outfit seen as the literal cliffhanger of the movie. -During the time of Rogue One, the Jedi are obsolete and have been banished from existence, so this alternate reflects that by being based off of the one fallen Jedi statue seen in the movie and in trailers. Up now is the New York Empire! Uniforms -I promise this set is not in any way based off of any real life team nicknamed the "Evil Empire"... -The Empire set features a pinstripe home uniform, with the Imperial insignia as the main logo and black and gray as the main colors, with red as an accent. -The number and wordmark font is from the Shadows of the Empire project, and perfectly matches the evil, menacing look of the Imperials. -A black alternate is added to complete the look. -The Empire was (spoiler) defeated at the end of Return of the Jedi, so no Force Awakens alternate. -However, the Empire is at the height of its power and has an enormous presence in Rogue One, of which the alternate is based on the main villain Director Krennic's uniform. The look is completed with a white hat. I'd love to hear what anyone thinks about the series so far!

  23. As for me being on the uniform good guy team, I'm glad this happened. It protects piracy and keeps knockoff work out of here. I've never even considered buying one because I'm so anal about the little nuisances that are incorrect. The devil on my shoulder says 1. How are you going to stop all counterfeit websites? 2. Why are you feeling bad for billionaires losing money? And 3. If they didn't charge upwards of $500 for an authentic or $150 for a half ass replica, they wouldn't have this big of a problem.

  24. Just purchased this Dalton jersey at a store for $20. It has embroidered numbers and looks like an on-field cut. Any idea where this jersey is from?

  26. Those were such great uniforms. I wasn't as keyed in on uniforms at the time and they wore them so often that I fully believed they had gone through with a full on rebranding. That was a few years after the Jets had gone back to their 1960's uniforms so there was precedent for it. I very much doubt the league would allow a team to play a full season in a throwback uniform ever again. In 94 a few teams just decided to keep on wearing the throwbacks even after the designated anniversary period was over and that includes the 49ers who wore their throwbacks in the GD Super Bowl. That would never fly today.

  27. Hey Blue Jackets fans, stop being excited about our first good team ever. We haven't won as many Stanley Cups as the Penguins.

  28. Let's start off with the reigning champs, Cieux City Cieux City are considered one of the two historical powerhouses of Vorticoan football, being extremely successful in the defunct Ligue Nord, they continued their form over into the Championnat and have managed to win the title a record 8 times. The city of Cieux is located on the banks of the Great Lake among many other smaller cities and towns, however despite these local derbies many fans consider Lavoisie FC to be the arch-rivals due to the two being the most successful clubs in Vorticoa. Winning their eighth title last season earned them a new sponsorship deal with Hyundai and they've been with kit manufacturers Under Armour since 2011. Jon Fonseca is one of the high caliber players in the league who re-joint the champions in the off season after spending time in other European leagues, he chose the number 21 for two reasons, firstly that was his age when he first won the league with Cieux and secondly the same number was worn for Cieux City by club legend Bruce Saymak. All C&C is Welcome

  29. I can't stand what Oklahoma State has done to their look. They looked like a movie football team tonight particularly with the helmets. Seems like it's been years since they've worn the all white helmets that we're used to seeing with Ok State. Or worn orange for that matter. Their original rebrand with Weeden/Hunter/Blackmon was awesome. But this last one is awful. Every time I see them on tv, Oklahoma State is never my first guess on who is playing.

  30. I think that's exactly it. The goal being to promote the idea of road tripping to watch games in different parks in either Arizona or Florida. Fans and teams alike traveling by highway to the games.

  31. I'm so torn on this topic. I love the old OC template, but the current set has all the success. My happy medium would be the color rush tops with white pants and the current helmet. No changes to the helmet, please.

  34. 1. Why 3 shades of brown? I see remnants of a really dark shade in the top version in the mascot's eyes and shadowing, and I think in the pitchfork. There doesn't seem to be a reason that the extra dark shade is necessary; you could make the pitchfork the same color as the outline and it would be just as legible. The darkest shade doesn't appear to be adding any depth either. 2. The text just looks like you picked a random font, and added an outline. It doesn't match the C in the second logo. Not that there's anything inherently bad about using a font as/is, but if you want to show some creativity, don't be afraid to customize it a bit more. 3. The second logo doesn't read as a T, so emphasizing the C doesn't make any sense. It's Tri-City, not City. 4. Why a single "D" as the cap logo? The nickname is two words. That would be like the Red Sox having just an R on the caps. It also looks a bit more orange than the other logos, but maybe that's just an illusion. 5. The cap logo is also a bit blurry.

  37. Welcome to following the Chargers... They're a contender for most poorly managed sports team in North America. Top 3 for sure. Their ownership is short sighted, cheap, completely out of tune with their market, delusional, has no clue how to win (on or off field), and frankly if they did nothing it would be an improvement over their current management scheme.

  38. I couldn't disagree more: I actually think that the Steelers have the best stripes in the NFL. The way the gold and white play off of one another, without ever touching, is perfect. The Steelers have perfected the white/gold color balance. All they need is to go back to block numbers, and they'll be all set.

  39. After Denver's color rush game my dad asked me to show him what a uniform package based those uniforms would look like. This is what I came up with. First concept I've posted here.

  44. The Florida teams seem to have picked up a bunch of 'washed up' All-Stars over the years. Some more shocking then others. Maybe it's Florida's no income tax or the chance to play with Orlando's Shaq & Penny or Miami's Shaq & D-Wade or Big Three. Here are some former All-Stars in Magic uniforms later in their careers (with the exception of Big Ben of course ... still odd seeing him in any uniform other than Detroit).

  46. As much as we like to hate on Belichek for being as good as he is, he has a very valid point when it comes to the constant coaching changes that have happened in the AFC East. Since 2000, the Jets have hired five coaches while the Bills and Dolphins have hired 9 each. Him and the Patriots have been the only constant in that division... when people ask why they always win the AFC East, you can point to that consistency of the Patriots as a strong reason.

  49. I have spent the past few days listening to and watching broadcasts of baseball games from the 1930s through to the 1980s. While I was looking around on YouTube, I came across this, a telecast of an International League game between Syracuse and Columbus from 1992. Beautiful! This is exactly what a minor-league baseball game should look like -- anyone can see at a glance that it's a Blue Jays affiliate against a Yankees affiliate. (The block numbers on the Columbus uniforms don't look as good as varsity numbers would. But the uniform as a whole clearly succeeds in conveying the look of the Yankees.) And this broadcast further demonstrates that the Syracuse Chiefs of that period were the best-dressed minor-league team of all time. A couple of years later, upon the switch to button-downs and belts, they would achieve perfection. I really cannot praise these Syracuse uniforms enough. Not only are they beautiful in their own right, but they also demonstrate an important design principle, namely, the importance of looking like the organisation that you represent. Finally, uniforms such as these allow players to look like professionals, and to present themselves with dignity.

  50. At the request of a few users, I have decided to make my soccer template public, so here it is! This template you can print out as you so desire! Here's how this template works: First, each team takes up a half-sheet of paper, so that two teams and four jerseys can fit on a single full sheet of paperThe middle of the jerseys are purposely left blank on the template, as I draw the trim, piping, etc. myself, custom to each teamThe blank space on the upper left corner is for the team name and crestThe top right has spaces for the kit supplier and sponsorIt's not too complicated of a template, and I look forward to what the concept community does with it! Enjoy! ~ Daryl EDIT: This is my 1,000th post!
