    Best uniform in team history IMO. NO black, TV numbers on the shoulders, blue face masks, and white shoes. Here's to hoping the new uniforms look similar.

    That's not how this works here. YOU design the concept and WE offer comments and criticism to help you get better.

    We don't need a political thread. There are about eleventy billion other places to talk politics. The only reason the last political thread stuck around (and it was never intended to be a political thread*) was because by some miracle we managed to stay civil for a while. *admiral titled the thread in French and no one understood the reference.

    Yesterday I looked through all the Boston Red Sox logos here on CCSL and realized that I never really liked the club's alternate circular logo. I've never been a fan of the two red sox which have become the primary mark back in 2009 – although it's pretty comprehensible (I wish the "B" would become their primary one day). I'm also not happy with the dominance of the color white in that logo. However, I decided to ditch the sox and replace it with the very famous and popular "B". I created two versions, a navy- and a red-heavy logo. I didn't change the basic design of the original mark from 2009, simply because it's a classic.

    Why wouldn't he do that at Mania too? The way I see it... Bill Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal title Winner and new unified WHC+UHC+USC = Roman Reigns Undertaker vs. Reigns. "It was noted to us that Vince McMahon had been wanting to make this match for some time. With Undertaker’s condition the way it is, this could have been the last chance to do it. There is the idea of a generational passing of the torch." Winner = Roman Reigns HHH vs. Seth Rollins. "Obviously this is in jeopardy right now." Samoa Joe takes Rollins' place. Winner = Roman Reigns Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title Winner and new WHC + USC = Roman Reigns Chris Jericho vs. Kevin Owens Winner and new USC = Roman Reigns John Cena & Nikki Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse Winner and new husband to both Maryse and Nikki = Roman Reigns Big Show vs. Shaquille O’Neal Winner = Shaq (even Roman Reigns wouldn't go near this one) Charlotte vs. Bayley vs. Nia Jax vs. Sasha Banks for the women’s title Winner = Roman Reigns

    If it's the Eagles I'll upload a vid of myself rolled-up backwards urinating into my own mouth. Not gonna happen.

    I asked ColorWerx about the color changes on Twitter. Was happy he replied! His response: "I can confirm there are 2 so far…1 is so subtle, it probably won’t count. Wash tweaked their Burgundy in 2015 & no one noticed."

    Conan: Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that the Philadelphia Eagles go back to Kelly Green & Silver... That's what's important! Kelly Green pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me Kelly Green and Silver Eagles uniforms! And if you do not listen, then the HELL with you!

    This is such a bad idea, but on the flip side I would absolutely love to see the Patriots play in an stadium full of 87,000 screaming people who would probably not be sad to watch the Patriots die. Tom Brady is going to have bags of flung at him and that is going to be awesome.

    For the record, Mings was a reluctant decision and we tried looking at other options but our hand was forced. I talked to him on Twitter last night and it's a head scratcher why that version of him couldn't be the one on the boards.

    The reason I don't like the idea of blue pants on the road is that they would inevitably eventually be paired with the home blues. If you guarantee that doesn't happen, I'm good with white over blue or white for a game or two.

    People have already commented on this, but sure. I can reiterate board policy on the issue. If you want to talk politics you can do so on any number of forums dedicated to political discussion. You can comment in comments sections of political stories on news sites. You can argue with your family. You can talk politics in plenty of places in your life. Chris Creamer's Sports Logos Community doesn't have to be one of them. And there's a reason. People abuse the privilege. Threads spiral out of control. And no. It wasn't all just Tank. And it wasn't just conservative posters. Plenty of people, across the political spectrum, proved that they were unable to keep a political discussion civil. Banning Tank didn't suddenly fix things. The last political thread we had was closed down months after Tank was long gone because other people decided to turn it into a dumpster fire. The only way to make political discussions work here would be to ban everyone else who could be considered a troublemaker, and then to watch every new member like a hawk to make sure they didn't immediately use the discussion to start a flame war. That would purge the community of otherwise welcomed members, and it would require the mod team to work very hard for a topic that's not essential for this website. So it's just not going to happen. Mings was told that continuing to try and talk politics violated board policy. He not only continued to do it, but he publicly declared he'd ignore moderator warnings and that he would re-edit any posts that were edited to reflect board policy. He was warned multiple times over the course of that back-and-forth before the vote came in.

    My "hope" for the Lions: 1. Billy Sims Era jersey (but updated - pic for reference below). Loved the silver, not white numbers. 2. Barry Sanders Era. Classic. With some modern updating this is would work. 3. Throwback. The throwbacks with an updated helmet. I dig this. Although it might be too "Raideresque" only in blue. I drive by the Lions training facility every day. I'll keep an eye out on any other changes.

    Also black isn't a team color. Also it's an ugly jersey. The 1997-2001 Mets were a lot of fun. 1997 felt like they finally turned the corner and became respectable again. They were alive until game 162 in 1998 (I still have nightmares about Jay Payton's baserunning that last weekend). They finally made the playoffs again in 1999, and won the pennant in 2000. They were 10 games under .500 in late August 2001 but got red hot in September to get right back in the race, capped off by that Piazza homer at Shea, before the wheels came off that last week. There was also 2006, where maybe if they had a healthy Pedro Martinez and El Duque, they could've beaten the Cardinals and won another pennant. There are a lot of good memories from this era. But none of that makes this a good look. It's an even worse look for a team never had black as part of its color scheme. And it's even worse when that team's color scheme was chosen for a specific reason (blue from the Brooklyn Dodgers, orange from the New York Giants). They were a good team in a bad jersey that I hope to only see again in highlight videos and never on the field.

    I hope the helmet stripe also goes back to it's normal size. Never liked the 5 stripe pattern narrowed down to the area of a single stripe.

    They went with blue road pants for a year in 1998, and I never really liked them. The silver/white/silver look was much cleaner and more symmetrical. But since this is Nike, I'm sure we'll have every possible combination of blue and silver in the uniform components.

    @Point1 I think you're cherrypicking a bit there, my Isles home was originally posted a while back in my alternate series. The whole set is also from my redefined series that can be found on my behance page. Anyways, next team is up... 24) Ottawa Senators Prediction: promote their throwback alts and create a matching white (sans vintage white) Wish List: This was posted in that Senators thread yesterday, but it's a nice idea that combines eras Calgary and Vegas are next

    Boy, oh boy, how I missed being on here when there's major NFL news. Nothing'll get the boys buzzing like some good news. Mulptiple teams making tweaks? It's like freakin' Christmas of news. Or, better yet, freakin' 2013. Bring these next two news-filled months on!

    Technically, there might be more than one other team. Paul's comment doesn't put a limit on it. Likewise - I was thinking Jets, Eagles, Skins, or Saints.

    Kudos to the Lions for progressively updating their logo ever so slightly throughout their history to finally get to, what I believe, is their best logo. On the flip side, it's a shame that NFL wordmarks are becoming more and more generic.

    I am SO glad the Lions are dropping the black. It wouldn't have been so bad if they had been a new team and we weren't aware of how they looked (better) beforehand. The worst part of it, though, was the black stripes on the sleeves. They looked very forced and ruined the whole thing for me. Maybe if they had been thinner?

    Really unpopular opinion: This is the best the Patriots have ever looked. I would change the pants stripe (as I think the stripes within the stripe which mimic the logo are a little too busy) to something simpler. Otherwise, that's it. The contrasting numbers and grey facemask MAKE this uniform for me. I mocked it up on a modern template just to get a better feel for it if it existed today:

    True but when it's a confirmed brand overhaul for a particular team we've given it their own thread. I'm excited to see what the new uniforms look like. I didn't hate the current ones but the stripes just never really did it for me. Looked forced for some reason. Hopefully the number font will go back to something more traditional.

    That's nice, but I want to see them bring back the classic stripes. Blue/white/blue.

    I loved that teal-flake helmet, but hated everything from the neck down. It wasn't hard, Jacksonville; teal-flake helmet over late 90's set. That's it. You had one job and you botched the crap out of it.

    They don't. I mentioned the Mariners bringing back the trident logo on their BP caps, and someone posted the Clubhouse cap as evidence of the logo and what it looks like in current colors. The Clubhouse caps have no correlation to the new BP caps.

    Thanks for the comments everyone! Now it's time for the NFC representative in the Super Bowl. Atlanta Falcons The current Falcons uniforms suffer from many of the same problems as the Patriots. They are a piping-laden disaster that has become extremely dated and needs to be replaced. In designing my replacement, I took inspiration from their throwback uniforms this year. Those, coupled with a Falcon-inspired jersey design and slightly modified logo give the team a refreshed look that combines the old and new in a tasteful way.

    At this point, I wouldn't even mind seeing Undertaker lay down for Roman Reigns. Because it'll be hilarious to watch the "Fans react to Roman defeating The Undertaker" compilation video. Here's the Royal Rumble video (NSFW language)...

    Yeah that Giants logo is dated. The Jets even had a similar logo at the time and they both just scream 70s. I think it's best we keep both logo where they died.
