  5. For me it's more about the legality of it all. All the arguments on the morality of it and jerseys being too expensive is something that I'm not trying to get into. Your full disclosure instantly rubs me the wrong way, though, as it seems to try to excuse (and encourage) knowingly purchasing illegal merchandise. I think buying merchandise that is illegal to sell is not the same as buying off brand cereal. A better comparison would be rather than buying a $100+ jersey from a jersey retail, instead going to Kohl's or Target and buying a $30 jersey type shirt that is a jersey but isn't really a jersey. One is generic, the other is real. As opposed to one is an illegal fake, the other is a legal real. But seeing that counterfeit jerseys are getting better to me isn't a good thing. It just means that more and more crap is going to go up on eBay and more and more people are being deceived into buying stuff that they think is legit. It's not something I'm going to celebrate.

  6. A majority of these are not bad. Mark Martin's 2003 Viagra car: An objectively clean design. You might laugh at the sponsor (which I'm sure was the purpose of its inclusion), but the design is good. Michael Waltrip's 2013 Aaron's/Alabama car: Again, a clean, simple design. Most likely, this was posted because Alabama Crimson Tide = bad guys. Dale Earnhardt's 2000 Peter Max car: It was designed by an artist famous for his pop art of the 60s and 70s, for a one-off exhibition race. Loud? Sure. Bad? No. Ryan Newman's 2015 Caterpillar throwback car: This was created for a throwback race. Since Caterpillar didn't sponsor a car decades ago, they made a "What if?" scheme with their old logo. Not a bad design at all. Lake Speed's 1998 Cartoon Network car: The only design on the car at all is a cartoon cloud behind the front wheels. If anything, this is underdesigned, but not bad. Neil Bonnett's 1994 Country Time Lemonade car: It's literally the sponsor's colors. Yellow and pink for lemonade. AJ Allmendinger's 2013 Phoenix Racing car: This was Bonnett's team, paying tribute to him at his home track after his death. Identical scheme. If you're going to talk about the "worst Nascars" (and, holy crap, "NASCAR" is an acronym, not a type of car), at least be creative or descriptive and don't just post "lol it's pink."

  7. The Reds from Cincinnati have one of those classic marks with a very high recognition value. However, the black 3-D shadows the club has added when they rebranded back in 1999 are very outdated. Therefore, they had to go – plus my mark now got a slightly thicker outline.

  9. There's a difference between "people won't notice that the jerseys have an accent color not on the pants or helmet" and "people won't notice that the retail jerseys aren't the same as the onfield."

  12. Wow. I wish we actually lived in a world where a sports league cared this much about the aesthetics of uniforms beyond making a buck. Here's my guess on how this all went down... Rams: "hey, can we change our uniform now and then again in two years?" NFL: "nope, against the rules." Rams: "ok, well, can we do a few other things?" NFL: "are these other things against the rules?" Rams: "no." NFL: "ok, knock yourselves out." At which point everyone but us kinda stopped thinking about it.

  13. The NFL is certainly brand-conscious but a few things need to be noted. The first was what @Gothamite brought up. If the Rams go with an update of the blue and athletic gold look that everyone loves in two years then this two year "mismatch" will barely be a footnote in the overall history of the Rams franchise. If anything it'll probably be remembered fondly in twenty years' time as this weird but endearing thing that was barely around. Secondly, being brand-conscious does not equate to having the same fondness for detail that we have. We're a niche group. Most people don't really pay much attention to uniform and logo details other than wanting to buy new gear when there's a change. So take the minority of people who do pay attention to this stuff. Well we are the tiny subset of that group willing to talk about it on the internet. No one's losing sleep over what a bunch of CCSLC geeks think about the Rams' decisions to play mix and match. As far as the NFL is concerned? The jerseys (which are the centrepiece of a team's merchandise catalog) aren't being tinkered with, so Nike can continue to sell old stock while a new design is worked on for 2019. From the NFL's perspective? Brand cohesion has been successfully maintained.

  15. I never really liked any of those AHL league logos they have used so far. So I decided to modernize the mark, making it once again much simpler and cleaner. Gone is the rather cluttered look from the early 1970s roundel, including the explanation that AHL is the abbreviation for American Hockey League. I think the league has been popular enough to go without it. Colors remain the same: Royal Blue (PMS 286 C), Red (PMS 185 C) and white. Current AHL logo

  16. I'll say what I've been saying for years. With proper ownership, and a little winning, any metro area of 2 million or more, in the US could work, for the NHL. Some places are going to be more of a fight. Some places can sustain bad, mismanaged teams, but "non-traditional" markets NEED to be well managed, if they want a chance. The Coyotes' problem is two-fold. Their team is poorly managed, which would make it a struggle anywhere in the metro area. Take a struggling team, put them on the outskirts of town, and you're compounding your problem. Phoenix is an area that could have worked, but it hasn't. It still could work, but that's incredibly unlikely. I want to see the Coyotes succeed, for three reasons. I live in Tucson, where their affiliate is. I am dating a die-hard 'yotes fan, and their continued existence allows me to go see my team once or twice, a year, without turning it into a big trip. Objectively, though, it's probably time to pull up stakes and move.

  17. Well I'd outline everything in white so it's consistent and I think it looks more professional, but we've been down this road a million times. I like a white outline on gray baseball shirts. SORRY!

  22. I don't know if this counts as a concept or not - it's not a full jersey, if that matters - but a few years back I tried my hand at combining the two Bruins logos, recolouring the modern serifed logo in the simplified, classic style. I coloured them a bit rough, but I think they look really good that way: I was actually inspired by someone on this very board, though I forget who; they had an avatar that was basically the yellow logo.

  24. Hi So as a Brit living here in the US I love the NFL, many at home love it too which is why we are certain to get a team in the near future especially since the NFL gave $125 million towards Tottenham Hotspurs new stadium. On that note when we do get a team what shall our name be? Colours look extra. I have had this discussion on here before and came to realize that although the natural conclusion is to go red white and blue for the national colours, on reflection too many teams in the NFL have this colour scheme. Thus for us to have a successful team we need to stand out and be unique. Another problem is most NFL UK have a team getting them to switch allegiances will be tough, however this will not happen if the team has London as its place name. Like how Boston Patriots became New England Patriots, we have to represent our whole island. Four Nations will unite us all around one team. when thinking of a symbol to unite us I looked no further than the British Bulldogs. I looked at all the teams and originally wanted to go with a ww1 British uniform colour however the colour was a bit too sickly green. Yet brown kept appearing during this period for uniforms and when I blended the dark red with the brown and silver I thought I had hit on something unique. The patch on the jersey I quickly through together but wanted the final design to have a patch that had a flower from each of the four countries in the Uk, English rose, Scottish thistle etc. The only problem i'm having is I have only just started graphic design and I'm not ready to make my own fonts yet. I really want to get tee shirts made of this concept so I can support the idera of us getting a team in the NFL but feel I need a great word mark to tie the brand together. Would any one on here be willing to make a word mark based of my idea that I could use? I would be so Grateful. Other than that let me know your thoughts on my concept, as I greatly value the community's opinion given how talented you all are. Thanks for taking the time to look

  28. I read it as an outdoorsy equipment company logo. The mountain and the HK together dont register as 'oh yea thats a dudes personal mark'. Maybe cause the mountain dominates over the initials...so its the mountains that are the focus, not the designer. The name below the mark helps a bit. maybe HEATH.K , H.KLEINDIEST, or KLEINDEIST DESIGN to move away from a fashion brand vibe? Logo is good.... communication is ehhh.

  32. I became a Jags fan because I loved their logo. Plus it's easier to cheer on an expansion team than to hop on another team with an established fan base. A shame they look awful now.

  36. I'll maintain that the current uniforms are the best the Bruins have looked. They could fix the outside border of the numbers, but aside from that they're stunning. I think they have arguably the best uniforms in the league.

  37. No, but when the aesthetics are perfect to begin with (2007/08 Bruins), winning provides and underline for why the look should stay around. The Cam Neely set looks dated, especially with that awful shoulder patch.

  40. I wouldn't choose navy (or even black) pinstripes for any ball team I play on because of the Yankees. Wouldn't cheer for any team that looks similar to the Yankees. I still cheered for the Sabres in their goat & slug years but most of my Sabres merchandise would be the design from their original years. If I'm picking teams is a sport secondary to me or league secondary to me uniform design would rank up their in my choice of who to cheer for. One thing I dislike is people's love for a uniform when a team wins a championship or championships in it and the design is subpar; guess what we're going to be stuck looking at for a long time to come.

  41. I didn't see the swastika when looking at your concept, but now that I saw it in a post, I can't un-see it. Clever concept nonetheless, just needs to be reworked. Also, I noticed that two corners aren't rounded, makes it look inconsistent.

  45. After a long hiatus on this thread, I'm finally back. Now the Jets could make double green work. The Color Rush uniform was absolutely beautiful. But I didn't want to make kelly green the primary green because I'm still half expecting the Eagles to make the switch to kelly green full time. Plus on the Vapor Untouchable the issues with green should be solved. -not much changes, just added kelly green to the main uniforms and brought back the Color Rush uniform full time. C&C welcome

  46. Following up on the talk about the dark grey road uniforms a side-by-side comparison of the Orioles and Netherlands shows how much the dark grey depresses (?) the other colors. I know the lighting is a little different, but it is a cloudy day in the picture on the right. The orange on grey looks sharp on the Orioles jersey, but it looks muddy on the Netherlands jersey . . . and the Netherlands picture is pretty representative of how it looked on TV last night.

  50. I love it when NFL teams wear white socks with their stripe pattern when they wear colored pants instead of wearing a solid colored sock that makes the uniform look like a unitard.
