    I recently entered a contest held by the Post2Post YouTube channel about redesigning the logo of current NHL teams. It was possible to send a entry for every team but I only entered with three. I chose the teams I already had an idea for which were the Coyotes, Oilers and Islanders. I could have done also the Kings logo but I ran short of time. I'm pretty happy with the overall result as all my logos made the top 63 and the Isles logo arrived 4th (it was 5th but then second logo got disqualified). Still, I was a bit disappointed for the other entries as I felt that in the previous contest they had way better entries in the top10 while in this one some were a tad weak. I'd like to hear some comment on my work as I mainly tried them out just because I really enjoy contests and events even if in the end my works are just average. Here you have the link if you want to have a look to the other entries. Here you have my entries I decided to redo the Coyotes logo just because I've always felt like their logo was nice but a bit too busy near the coyote's eyes and that the only animal head was a bit odd just like that. As a second I went with the Oilers also if I like their current logo (they are my favourite team) but I see that it is a bit outdated and in my opinion not old enough to be an historical one, like the Canadiens logo, so it should be updated. While I quite like the overall result of the drop on the gear wheel in the end I'm not completely ok with the helmet. It looked like a good idea to incorporate it but maybe the logo could have looked better without it. With the Islanders I had the easiest task as their logo is pretty awful. I know they won 4 Stanley Cups in a row with it, but the same I've said for the Oilers applies here. I know that the fisherman logo was higly hated but I think that it was a bold move out of the comfort zone they should repeat in the near future (without the teal please...).

    Putting AFL logos in the endzone during the NFL's "EVERYTHING'S GOLD BECAUSE SUPER BOWL 50" season was one of the greatest things a football team has ever done.

    I’ve seen you claim clear falsehoods (“no one in the 80s wore diagonal stripes/had triangle shoulder yokes!”). I don’t say this to claim you’re deliberately trying to lie because I don’t think you’re doing that. I think you’re passionate about what you like, and in your haste you tried to upsell how “fresh” the Panthers’ innagural set was. You forgot about some earlier 80s looks, and then you tried to backpeddle without admitting you goofed. I say this to echo what andrewharrington and ColeJ have each said. Stop approaching every. G-ddamned. Thread. Looking. For. A. Fight. Stop assuming everyone who likes the Sabres in royal and gold or the Senators’ Heritage logo is out to personally wage war against what you like. I mean come on, man. This was a Panthers discussion and when enough people said they didn’t agree with you on that team’s look? You brought the Sabres and Sens’ retro looks into it, spewing barely restrained contempt at anyone who dared like both those retro looks along with the current Panthers set. Or how an unrelated discussion about the Blackhawks’ throwback logos turned into you chiding andrewharrington for not liking a known con-artist’s Sabres concept from over ten years ago? Good G-d man. Just stop. Stop making every discussion a confrontation. I mean it. Long time forum members know I had a habit of doing that before. I still get drawn into that habit now and then, but you know why I make a conscious effort to keep it in check? It’s exhausting and it alienates everyone. So take it from someone who’s been there. No one’s your “uniform enemy” here. Here’s a not-really secret. I like the Panthers’ innagural set. I like the logos, the colours work. It’s a good looking uniform. That said? I also like what they wear now. You seem to think it’s a “one or the other” thing and it’s not. Both looks work. It doesn’t lessen my opinion of one to say the other looks good. To ColeJ’s bigger point? It’s not like the Panthers said “we’re dropping the Edge look, it’s either this new design or the innagural set.” In all likelihood? The innagural set was never considered. From day one they knew what they wanted and worked with Reebok/Adidas accordingly. And what they wanted wasn’t the innagural look. So why bother trying to make this “current look vs innagural look” when that was never a choice the team was making?

    I really do hope that the current Ram head survives the rebrand. It's a great rendering, it hasn't aged, and, selfishly, I don't want my jacket to be outdated.

    The Celtics just need to leave the parquet pattern on the floor where it belongs and make their City edition the original St. Pats Day uniforms: And then if Nike’s insists on changing the City editions every year, go with something based on the old warmups:

    This concept actually started when I was flipping through a magazine at a coffee shop one weekend and saw an ad for a local Mexican restaurant. I really liked the way the typeface's colors worked and were balanced with one another, so I made a note of it and finally got around to experimenting with it. The Memphis Grizzlies' current identity has overstayed its welcome, and with the transition to Nike's new template it lost most bits of character it did had. I actually don't mind their current Statement Edition template so much - it's unique, fairly clean, and the shoulder/back color blocking alludes to an identifying characteristic of grizzly bears - but the color palette is dull and too many teams use navy. The three shades of blue they employ is a unique design feature, though. Also, Grizzly bears are oftentimes varying shades of brown. No teams in the NBA wear brown, so I thought it would be an interesting experiment to work with various shades of brown as the foundation for this concept. The yellow accent is something I admittedly still love about the Grizzlies' current set, so that was retained. The typeface is updated to something simple, yet angular, and the stroke and drop shadow are similar to the aforementioned print ad I saw. I spent a lot of time looking at the design aesthetics of both Wyoming and St. Bonaventure's, as both school's employ similar color schemes, but their basketball uniforms are routinely underwhelming and uninteresting. The goal was to create something neutral yet colorful with clean yet aggressive lines -- not overwhelming, but at the very least interesting. I've yet to finalize a concept for the Association Edition jersey, as I tend to struggle with the white base. I'm still figuring out the color balance there, but I'll hopefully have something to share for that in the coming days. Thanks for looking! Memphis Grizzlies Icon Edition Jersey

    I try really hard not to be a tradition guy, but what Nike has done to the Lakers has really bothered me. 50 years of wearing yellow at home, purple on the road and, more recently, white on Sundays was trashed for no good reason other than to sell jerseys (I guess?) that haven't functionally changed in decades. It's all so stupid.

    ELON I moved the jersey side panel design to the pants and made some recoloring. Cuffs and collars follow the same design as the tail end of the aforementioned pants striping. Finally, the phoenix logo is the only current helmet logo element left (like in the past). Home 1: Home 2: Home 3: Road 1: Road 2: Road 3:

    Even though the AFL never aired on CBS, Wouldn't it be fun if they went with a throwback-style broadcast to go along with this game?

    That’s the difference in the Jazz, for example, having a creative director (Ben Barnes) who’s quite passionate about sports design (and a veteran of these message boards). I guarantee you not every team has a person like that in charge of their brand, if they have even someone in that role.

    Welcome to the American College Football Association. The ACFA was formed in 1934 and is a huge rival to the NCAA. The league consists of 93 schools and eight conferences, the Southern 12, the California Conference, the Original 9, the Midwest Athletic Association, the Southwest Conference, the Plains Conference, the Western Athletic Conference, and the Central Athletic Conference. There is a 16-team playoff. Unlike the NCAA, the ACFA allows schools to pay their players without a penalty. Here is the Southern 12 Conference. West Mississippi Tech (Flowood) Mississippi A&M (Greenville) Birmingham State Alabama-Gulf Shores New Orleans State Mississippi State- Biloxi East Georgia Central (Macon) Western Florida (St. Petersburg) Coastal Carolina Columbus College (Columbus, Ga) Jacksonville Southern Tennessee State- Chattanooga Here is the first team, Mississippi Tech Ducks Mississippi Tech was founded in 1894 in Flowood, Ms. The Ducks football team played their first game on August 29, 1903 against New Orleans State. Mississippi Tech has always been good but not superb. You always see them in the polls but they can never bring home a championship. Mississippi A&M was founded in 1830 in Greenville, Ms. The Gators have 5 championships but have struggled recently. After hiring new head coach, Ronnie Blue, MAM looks to get back to their winning ways. Birmingham State was founded in 1870. The Magicians have a huge rivalry with Mississippi Tech. BSU leads the series 50-22. The 2000s have been a terrific decade for Birmingham State, making the playoffs every year except 2010. Alabama-Gulf Shores is the laughing stock of the conference. The Sharks have been at the bottom nearly every year and have gone through 8 coaches in the last 10 years. However, in 2003, they nearly made the playoffs but got their hearts broken by rival Mississippi State-Biloxi in the last regular season game. The New Orleans State Raiders are a powerhouse. Every year you see them in the playoffs. Coached by the legend Willie Brown, the Raiders have gone 62-2 in the last 4 years and have 21 championships. Mississippi State-Biloxi Hurricanes have been a long-time competitor to NOLA State, but have never been able to reach NOSU's legacy. Georgia Central was founded in 1798 in Macon. As another one of Birmingham State's rivals, the Chiefs always play them tough and physical. Central was a dynasty in the 1970s, winning 6 championships. Nowadays, they have only reached the playoffs once, in 2013. Western Florida is mediocre to sub-par every year. The Sun Devils annually get crushed by in-state rivals Jacksonville Southern and Florida State. Columbus College was founded in 1821. In 1939, the Hornets started the first minority quarterback in ACFA history, Jordan Robinson. Not to be confused with Jackson State, the Jacksonville Southern Bengals wear their sky blue and navy with pride. They are usually a playoff contender every year. The Tennessee State-Chattanooga Raccoons usually hang with AGSU at the bottom of the conference.

    What a pleasant surprise from Tennessee. Surprised the captains had so much say and that the team could change this close to game day but I'll take it! Saints tweeted that they are in white on gold this week. Pretty sure that is the first time this season for that look and the first time in a while they have worn it vs. Tampa. Cardinals will be in white pants. Still no white on red since 2010, but there is enough red in the all white to me that it doesn't matter too much. Browns are trying to make it 0-11 in white on white with orange socks this season. Aside from preseason, I don't think they ever wore that look until last season's finale at Pittsburgh and now somehow it's become their go-to look. Really hope to see brown and. orange jerseys for most home games next year and some brown pants with the white jersey.

    Yeah, I've lived in LA for most of my life and I have never once referred to it as Tinseltown, so I'd say that something simple like Los Angeles CC would work perfectly fine. Another thing that I definitely want to avoid is Hollywood imagery, it gets really stale real quick. I've got some free time tonight so I'll be fooling around with a design involving art deco, which is a design style that I really like a lot that also has some connection to the city (that and we can't let Miami have an art deco logo for the millionth time).

    LAKE ARMSTRONG, Luna – The word out of the Solar League Baseball headquarters in Lake Armstrong on Luna is that Commissioner Anders Sjolund is starting the procedures of expanding the league by two teams by 2509 or 2510. “With the success of the league for the first five years, we are confident that this league has lots of room to grow,” Sjolund said. Sjolund said that while the two locations aren’t decided yet, he would assemble a band of league officials and Space Untied Nations (SUN) representatives to form an expansion committee. For the 2506 season, Sjolund will be sending his people all over the SUN to conduct research to determine “six to eight” viable establishments for the two expansion teams. Sjolund also even drew out a tentative timeline for the next several years: Post 2506 season: six to eight establishment candidates announced Post 2507 season: three finalists announced Post 2508 season: two winners announced, team branding discussion begins Post 2509 season: unveiling of the two expansion teams’ logo/uniform set Start of 2510 season: first season of competition for the expansion teams Sjolund have made his preferences well known. “While we would love to have more teams on the Moon, Mars, Venus, and maybe even Earth too,” Sjolund commented. “But I believe it is in the best interests of our league to expand outwards. That means we’re looking at Jupiter and Saturn and beyond.” Sjolund did acknowledged that the population sizes in the outer solar system would be a factor, but feels strongly that the league’s increasing popularity would offset it. SLB has stated that the league’s overall goal is to have at least 18-20 teams by 2540, with at least one team on each of the outer planets and multiple teams in the inner solar system. RoughRiders99’s Notes/Disclaimer And we have officially started the expansion talks! I'll make a post about the 2506 season later today. The post after that one will have six to eight candidates with pros and cons, very similar to Hawkfan89's lists. From there, we can start the voting process of whittling it down to three candidates for a second round of voting. Thanks for reading! I'm excited to get this started!

    I'm just saying it's a reason, not that it's the mic drop or anything. The real mic drop would be how awesome that shade of blue is and the fact that nobody else in the league uses anything even remotely close.

    2505 Season Season Recap The 2505 season was arguably the wildest season in its young history, as there were three teams racing toward the two Galactic Series spots right down to the last few days. For most of the season, the Mars Warriors were hovering around third place until the home stretch of the season, where they skyrocketed past the Earth Astronauts and the Mercury Mets to the regular season title. All three teams were separated by just two games. Over the final 60 games, the Warriors went 43-17 and 7-3 in the last 10 games to sneak past the Astronauts. Both the Astronauts and Mets had a strong first half at around 20 games above .500, but had a mediocre second half where they were barely over .500. Warriors third baseman Peter Dierauer, who won the batting title by hitting at a clip of .383, led the team to their first regular season title. Outfielder Miguel Medrano also had an outstanding season, batting .356, 32 homers, and drove in 133 runs, all in top three of the league. The Astronauts’ outfielder Luke Tasler set career highs with 40 homers, 135 RBIs, and slugging .635 while serving as the cleanup hitter. As a team, the Astronauts led the league with 209 homers. Their starting pitching struggled a little, as their starter ERA didn’t finish in the top half of the league. The Mets were hurt immensely by the loss of their star outfielder Xie-li Shui, who got injured with a ruptured tendon in his finger. He had 32 homers and 105 RBIs at the time when he left in his 114th game of the season. There’s a reason why he was a five-time MVP. There were rumors swirling around the solar system that several higher-ups in the Luna Apollos and Ceres Belters front offices may be on their way out due to their unchanged positions in the standings the last few years. The Venus Sparrows’ rebuilding plans were taking longer than they though, as they finished last once again. Binya Omoto did lead the league in stolen bases with 54. Galactic Series VI There seems to be a thing for repeat Galactic Series winners. The Mars Warriors defended their 2504 title by winning this year’s Galactic Series four games to one over the Earth Astronauts. In Ares City on Mars, the Warriors took the first game behind Dan Askeland’s clutch two-out, two-run double. The Astronauts rebounded in Game 2 where they scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning to tie the series. Moving to Houston, Texas on Earth, Mars essentially became road Warriors (sorry for the terrible pun) and won three straight games to clinch the title. In Game 3, the game lasted 17 innings until Jon McShan and Mark Kantola hit key sacrifice flies in the 17th inning. The Warriors also have a thing for big innings, as they scored eight runs in the 1st inning in Game 4 and seven runs in the fourth inning in Game 5. Warriors reliever Alex Hart pitched four scoreless innings to pick up the save to clinch the series. The series MVP was the Warriors’ rookie first baseman, Josh McBride, who is just 19 years old. He slashed a line of .370/.393/.630 and led the team with 10 hits. Awards Reliever of the Year RP Jerrod Pickens, Mercury Rookie of the Year 1B Josh McBride, Mars Manager of the Year MG John Arvizo, Mars Pitcher of the Year SP Jeremy Winters, Ceres Most Valuable Player OF Luke Tasler, Earth The MVP was down between Tasler and Miguel Medrano of the Warriors, in the closest MVP vote in history of SLB. Tasler batted .339 with 188 hits, 38 doubles, 3 triples, 40 homers and 135 RBIs, while collecting a WAR of 6.8. Medrano batted .356 with 204 hits, 50 doubles, 4 triples, 32 homers, and 133 RBIs, while getting a WAR of 6.2. Tasler had quite plenty of 1st and 2nd places votes, whereas Medrano actually had more 1st place votes. He had just 1-2 too many 3rd place votes to pull him down a little bit. All-Solar Team C.

As I mentioned in the original post of this thread, I'm basing a lot of the logos and uniforms set on already established teams. You can view the original stuff in the links below. In an upcoming post, I'll be doing a recap of the 2506 season and post the Luna, Venus, and Ceres uniform sets as well. In the post after that, I'll be starting the expansion talks!

    I've been experimenting with a few things to improve this set: 1) re-injecting red into the color palette 2) switching to a truer shade of gold 3) introducing a new wordmark and numerals script So far, I'm liking the results. The color palette actually reminds me of the Allen Iverson-era Sixers, though obviously without as much white and no blue nor silver entirely. The original typeface doesn't quite feel cut out for a basketball jersey the more I look at it, but this particular script has enough character to belong. It actually comes from the city's official tourism site if I'm not mistaken. I laid out color schemes for the remaining Association, Icon, and City Edition jerseys, and I may still tweak the side panels a bit, but barring any significant changes here's the updated template with which I plan to move forward... New Orleans Pelicans Statement Edition Jersey Is this a step in the right direction in terms of color, typeface, etc.? Please let me know your thoughts....thanks!

    I'm back again folks! And I dare say, I'm fairly proud of this next team revamp I'm going to show you. Say hello to the Northmen! I figured the name sounded more interesting than the Yetis. Just a little update, once I finish this project (hopefully ) I'm planning to release a completed formatted package for download of all the logos that will automatically replace the old ones if you have any of the Madden 04-08 games (for PC). This package will include premade endzones, helmets, slivers, main logo, and midfield files. All you have to do is put the files in the correct locations, and the old logo sets will be replaced with the new ones. Let me know if you're interested in having it when I'm done!

    I think you're still trying to be too cutsie with the names. Think alternatives like the equivalent of Los Angeles FC, Sporting Los Angeles, AFC Los Angeles, Los Angeles United. I think, especially for LA, the city has a strong name that evokes a brand rather than a loose association.

    These are great! I'll break up my C&C for each logo: Arizona: It's a nice concept, but I feel like it should be simpler, specifically the state boundaries. Still a nice logo overall. Edmonton: Probably my favourite, All the symbolism is great, but again, the hat could be simpler. New York: Only thing I would change is adding an outline around the N and Y.
