    Just wanted to take a moment to praise Jiffy. It's really not even Jiffy. It's "Jiffy" mix. They make mix for cornbread, muffins, that kind of stuff, and have been doing so since 1930. That's all. They don't do anything else. Look at their damn website. It's straightforward, not terribly pretty, but whatever. http://www.jiffymix.com/ They use archaic clip art and have a stupid 1996-era CG rendering of an anthropomorphic box of Jiffy waving a friendly hello to you, the visitor. Glorious. Hello to you too, sir! Look at this damn box: There's been minor variations of this on all of their products, but essentially it's all the same. The red area has some sort of denotation - "America's favorite," or "value something or whatever" - "Jiffy" in quotes because it'll be done in a JIFFY! Get it yet, you stupid jerk? Has some gold medal sticker on there (which it may or may not always be) but I mean look at that sticker, all shiny and important. Red white and blue everywhere, just as God intended. Then as a bonus they show you how goddamn delicious those muffins are going to turn out once you add some egg and milk to this delicious powder. Holy , sign me up! Best part? This stuff is like 90 cents a box. They don't give a rat's ass. It's dirt cheap. The box fits pleasantly into a pocket or hand, and the satisfying heft of it makes you feel like you came out a winner! "8.5 oz for less than a dollar? I'm cheating the system!" All they ask is that you eat it and love it and enjoy your American kickass life. They don't need to rebrand or use some skateboarder kid to make kids want to buy muffin mix. There's no point in a Call of Duty cross promotion or a Ghostbusters tie-in. It's muffin mix. Just buy the , grandma.

    Really? I'd say that and Lakers are both the right uniform for Shaq. I'll even throw in the Heat too. But these are sooooo much more wrong for him than the Magic:

    Cujo, make like a Chicagoan and take the L, you're utterly out of your gourd calling Shaq with the Magic an aberration.

    Don't get me wrong -- varying outfield dimensions, wind/air conditions, and even grass length are part of why baseball is great. But a hill with a flagpole for the sake of a hill with a flagpole takes you from navigating the natural idiosyncrasies of the physical world to Family Double Dare.

    Are we seriously debating if Shaq in a Magic's uniform is wrong? It's where he made his name! There's no debate.

    Army is the only one that can pull off camo. It works for them because it's not just an excuse to wear camo by pulling the "Military Appreciation" card. They are the Army after all. Anyway, I much prefer this set compared to the camo head-to-toe:

    If they go through with that they'll be the owners of one of the worst logos in professional sports.

    It's = it is Its = the possessive of it. If you type it's and can't read it as 'it is', you're doing it all wrong.

    So they're ditching an iconic, synonymous-with-winning logo for a bland shoulder patch that was the primary logo of the failure of a team that was in Denver before them? Ok....

    Kazaam, Blue Chips, and Shaq Fu all happened before his time with the Lakers. He was a legit cultural phenomenon; name one other basketball player who had his own fighting video game! Even as a dorky white kid in a city without an NBA team 1,200 miles away, everybody knew Shaq and the Magic.

    Cracks me up how "new uniform" automatically means "wrong uniform" for so many of you. And while Boggs in a Devil Rays jersey isn't his "right uniform" I can't say it was a "wrong uniform" because when I think of the 98 Devil Rays I think of Wade Boggs.

    Agreed. The Avs' current logo has never looked good, and the pre-Edge mountain range sweaters are overrated.

    No. He's saying that the Wild are going Cup or Bust with this trade and sacrificing a bit of the future. If you're giving up that much, you better win the Cup because of or at least with that player to make the trade ultimately worth it. Otherwise, you gave away a year of prospects. Stop that. No one's saying it's a fluke. We're just saying 1) this is the Wild and 2) more importantly, this is Bruce Boudreau. The Ducks and Capitals did everything in multiple regular seasons you just described about this season's Wild, and with better players, but ultimately all met the same playoff end. And what's the common thread through the Capitals, Ducks, and now Wild? It's Bruce. Regular seasons with Bruce are fun, but don't go expecting the playoffs to be the same carnival.

    thank you, sir. that idea of the stripe has been in my head for years. this is the first Lions concept i've ever done that i can recall, but im always looking for something unique to use as a stripe. and i always like pulling things from history that people have forgetten about or only hardcore fans would know. for the Lions, this just seemed like a natural choice the second part of the above answer addressing the stripe is i felt it was important to do something that separated this team from the Cowboys as much as possible. maybe a blue mask? maybe no stripe at all? (this is also why i used blue pants )but i think going back to a Braisher stripe would be a bad move for that Cowboys tie-in reason. the Lions haven't had that stripe in, i don't know when they changed. . .15 years or so? so, the middle of the helmet presents an opportunity for an original brand identifier. Plus, you have to think of these things as part of a set– so the 4th part of my set would be a Sanders era throwback uniform. and i believe when you have a throwback, it has to be different enough from the primary that people notice it. if it's only a slight change, then whats the point? so here's the full set one more note: the NOB is smaller than usual and the wide tracking of the "Detroit Lions" wordmark on the chest was all inspired by old car badges. going back a few pages, this is what i was talking about with using the auto industry to inspire an idea without screaming it

    Eh, the NHL did it to themselves when they shot the finger at ESPN and went to the Outdoor Life Network. Having a strike/lockout every other goddamn year doesn't exactly boost fan popularity either.

    This is a sports logos message board. If you want to share your faith please find a Christian board. There are people of all creeds and beliefs (or lack thereof) here and we aren't going to allow them to feel uncomfortable by your need to be an online missionary. And before it goes there, I'm a practicing Catholic so I'm not just here to Christian bash.

    Building on the above three posts, I think WWE having an authority figure is fine. Just not Stephanie McMahon. She never puts anybody over, never gets her comeuppance in the end (with the possible exception of Vickie Guerrero and the mud pit) and is always out to make herself look strong. She gots to go! Even Vince knew when it was time to take the Mr. McMahon character off of TV. And speaking of Mr. McMahon, Vince McMahon has his flaws for sure, but his on-screen character almost always put over somebody big in the end. Sure, Mr. got some (relatively) meaningless handicap match wins and stuff on Raw, but by and large, Vince did good business. Steve Austin would not have been the cultural phenomenon he was without Mr. McMahon. Mick Foley got over on a different level after his interactions with Mr. McMahon. Kurt Angle, Triple H, the Undertaker, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan...all got the better of Mr. McMahon in high profile matches. Stephanie can't put anybody over in the ring and she's not putting anybody over on the mic or in other programs. She's a selfish character and the crowd doesn't even love to hate her from what I see. Daniel Bryan is good in his role. He's around and has a purpose to his actions beyond "it's time for the Authority figure promo, I guess."

    Here are the alternate eyes: I'm really happy with the fact that there is a menacing look to these, but it doesn't have to look like it's roaring as many grizzly bear logos do.

    mini helmets? Cleveland and Pittsburgh have full-sized helmets (it fits on your head!) full of nachos! In Pittsburgh, it had buffalo chicken and all sorts of supreme stuff in it, and everyone around me was aghast at the size and quantity...in Cleveland, they were like "oh, you got the medium. that's cute." I couldn't finish either of them, that's how many nachos were involved. It was glorious.

    Even though its fairly for lack of a better word obvious, is it just me or is that C logo awesome? That would be a legitimately perfect cap logo for a Rockies redesign, which is something that needs to happen sooner than later. Hats off to you for that, sir! (Pun fully intended)
