    It's just like the Canadiens' logo, if you ignore the complete lack of brand equity and the inferior design work. The original logo was about a 9/10 and this one's a 10/10. You might not immediately guess "that team must be the Senators" from looking at it (trying to step outside myself for a sec, I would probably guess their name is the Spartans), but you wouldn't do that for any number of teams whose logos we still like. I suppose the difference there is that with the Bruins or Flyers, it's more abstract, and with the Blackhawks, one would have to explain that it is a drawing of a historical figure named Black Hawk rather than a hawk that is black. Here, you can reasonably argue "factually speaking, that is clearly not a Roman senator," which I think has always been IceCap's fair-enough beef with it. It's of a kind with the Canucks, where an orca whale is decidedly not a Canuck. But I think a lot of that is overridden by how good the logo looks. If only the Sens would actually use it.

    The Belleville Sens have shown that the regular white is a big improvement.

    I love that Miami's return to prominence has coincided with their return to using the 80's uniforms. It just feels correct.

    I think it would be cool if Veras made merch out of his AFA teams.

    We're all ignoring what the Sens should really have done: Put the current block font on these guys, resurrect the updated 2D centurion, and there you go!

    I think the Hawks-Knicks 'Red vs. Orange' was a worse. At least the Suns-Lakers 'Orange vs. Gold' was less offensive. Doesn't mean I liked it, but it wasn't as hard to follow compared to the Knicks-Hawks game.

    If you swap out the vintage white for regular white? I'll take the Heritage look.

    @Raymie, I love that concept. I used that idea in combination with @ChicagoOakland's suggestion (though it wasn't really possible to get a good V at the back while still having the hammer far enough forward on the side - the angles just don't work). That all of you for the feedback. I think I prefer a blue helmet to a white one in the abstract, but this is much better for the spirit of the USFA. The California Atoms should be posted shortly.

    Thanks a lot for the kind words and input! I didn't see the Denver Nuggets' colors at all during my process, but ever since you've pointed it out it's been hard to unsee it. And aside from the colors, it's also a lot more similar to the Nuggets' rainbow skyline jerseys than I realized! Anyways, I experimented with the color palette to avoid the Denver Nuggets comparison while also reintroducing Utah's beloved purple and better highlighting the mountain shading. I admittedly see a Phoenix Suns jersey now given the colors, but I think the sunset effect looks a lot smoother with the shades of purple creating less contrast than the shades of blue. Please let me know your thoughts, criticisms, and suggestions on the updated version -- thanks! Utah Jazz City Edition Jerseys

    Some additional observations from my tracking: If you're looking for traditional uni-matchups, your best bet is to watch a game early in the work week. Teams have gone traditional 75% of games on Monday (15 total), 73% on Tuesday (16) and 71% on Wednesday (27). Avoid Friday, only 43% of games (16) have had the home team in white and road in dark. The Celtics (5-0), Bulls (1-4), and Rockets (4-1) have all played five color vs. color games so far. The Cavs, Nuggets, Warriors, Bucks, Timberwolves, Knicks, Suns, Trailblazers, and Kings have not played any color vs. color games. There are only three uniforms that are undefeated: Lakers throwback (1-0) 76ers white (2-0) and Kings white (2-0).

    So, let me get this straight: Each team has four jerseys, The Icon, the Association, The Leaders, and The Legends. Right? Ridiculous. How about "home," "away," and "alternate" and call it a day.

    California Atoms Owner: The Walt Disney Company is the only corporate owner in the USFA or AFA. Gaining control of a franchise was the brainchild of CEO Neal Rose (37), who had pursued a strategy of diversification and expansion during his time in control of the company. This is @NeoPrankster’s 1980 expansion council character. Stadium: Anaheim Field – a baseball stadium that is home to the California Stars. Built in 1982, it seats 68,550 for football and has a natural grass playing surface. Sharing the stadium with a baseball team during baseball season means that the dirt from the diamond will be exposed virtually all season. Notable Players: The Atoms biggest signing was Texas Stallions DT Ron Brown. Like many of his teammates, he was seeking higher pay in the USFA, and as a UCLA graduate California had the first crack at signing him. Unfortunately, much like Steve Parker in Birmingham, Brown is still under contract with the Stallions through 1988, and will not be able to play this year. Logo and Colors: The team’s logos and colors were taken from the Disney movie Gus, in which a struggling professional football team signs a Yugoslavian mule as a kicker. The Atoms are one of only two teams in the league to have white and one other color in their color scheme. Uniforms: The uniforms were also taken from Gus, and are perhaps the most unusual in the league, thanks to the lightning pattern around the numbers of the jersey front and back. They will wear red as their primary and white as their secondary (though realistically speaking, by late spring this will be reversed). And here is where the league stands now. I suspect that most of you probably noticed, but this grid is arranged by division. Brooklyn, Buffalo, Indiana, and Louisville are in the Eastern Division; Birmingham, Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee are in the Central; and California, Oklahoma, San Jose, and Utah are in the West.

    Thanks! I don't hate the Bombers with all my heart, but I dislike them more than some other teams. Do you hate them more than Collingwood? Also, being a Blues fan right now must be tough. Next up are the Hawthorn Hawks, who had a three-peat from 2013-15. The Hawks have a bold colour scheme of Brown and Gold, so I tried to make it bold and classic, like their logo. The pattern consists of three stripes from their jumper (No, Adidas did not sponsor this concept) The away features a brown yoke, even though I don't think they should exist, I added reverse-coloured nameplates to both jerseys as a throwback to these jumpers worn several times throughout the club's history. C&C welcome. Next up: The Premiership's a cakewalk.

    Teams change logos all the time. It's a matter of branding. Not a lack of confidence in the team's abilities. Well that's just incorrect. The original Senators were around for 52 years. 51 of those years in Ottawa. How? I'm really not seeing it at all. If you want to prefer the Centurion to the =O=? Cool. The team choosing to downplay one over the other doesn't seem like an admission of anything, however. It's either a matter of personal aesthetic preference on the part of management or said management has data that suggests that the =O= is more popular among the fanbase than the Centurion. Either way it's branding. Nothing more or less.

    This is a perfectly good look for Ottawa and better than the =O=

    People can want to embrace the heritage look without pretending the new Senators are the old Senators. Nor do I see embracing the =O= as a sign that they're admitting that the current team will never win anything. That's honestly preposterous.

    Here's another route. Used the B from the Baltimore script in place of the O's. C&C welcome!
