    In the current economy I’m just glad this guy found a new gig.

    They were both fantastic secondary logos that neither team is using anymore. It's a shame. They fit in that sleeve space so well too. I've joked since I was a kid that every year the best of the 4 cat teams should get a trophy of their own because none of them are ever winning the Super Bowl.

    This is still in the early stages, but I've put together a look for a Seattle NHL franchise based on one of the names listed as a possibility; the Seattle Sea Lions (or Sealions, SeaLions?). For the logo I'm taking inspiration from the AAU SeaWolves work I just did, I'm trying to work an "S" into the shape. and still use northwest coast tribal shapes. I've also been referencing photos of dominant male sea lions and using their distinguishing features (high forehead, prominent whiskers, thick neck/chest). This is just the first sketch, but let me know what you think of the look I have going so far.

    The frustrating thing is that they come so close. The 2016 uniforms were as good as they are going to get in terms of design. Just replace blue with brown, and you're home free for the next 50 years.

    Nike Basketball has posted some nice snapshots of each team’s City uniform on their Instagram story. Here’s just a few of them:

    Reebok got really bad about that when they had the NFL deal. Key design elements would vary player to player on the same team depending on which jersey cut they were wearing. Then in the later years some players had those stretchy tshirt looking jerseys while others were wearing the old templates and there was a lot of inconsistencies. I'll give Nike credit for getting all of that squared away. Even if a guy has a tighter cut jersey his stripes aren't altered differently than a teammate in a looser fitting jersey. The Bengals uniforms still have problems, but Nike at least solved the issues Reebok was having with them. Example: These guys were on the same team at the same time. That doesn't happen with Nike anymore.

    This is such a tired arguement. Eagles aren't Green, Seahawks (Ospreys) aren't blue, Buffaloes aren't blue, Falcons aren't red etc. etc. etc. It's sports. Have some fun.

    This might be an unpopular opinion, but I tend to get much angrier at the institutions that cover up abuse than I do the abusers. It's super complicated, but I'd imagine pedophiles would rather not be pedophiles. It's a terrible sexual attraction to have and while I get there are issues of attraction and power, there's also a mental disorder. IANAP (psychiatrist), but I'd assume it's harder than telling pedophiles to just stop being attracted to kids. What isn't hard is for institutions to remove those people from bad situations. And, ahem Catholic church, keep them away from kids. It's distressing how often they fail to do so. So my OTT reaction is to burn down institutions. Raping the perpetrators in prison doesn't provide me with much catharsis.

    I wasn't even talking to you and you decide to get personal with it. More proof from our earlier discussion that you need to do something about that hair trigger. Not every person with a conflicting opinion is out to personally get you. Nor are they required to keep quiet to avoid upsetting your sensibilities. To the point? I didn't even say that the Canucks' logo was bad. I was merely explaining how it didn't fit with the "VANCOUVER" text it's been paired with. Yet you leapt immediately to the "WHAT? ICE_CAP HATES ANOTHER 90S LOGO? TO THE INTERNET BOX!" I'll just point you to the Seattle Seahawks' original logo vs current logo. That style doesn't have be as agressive as the Canucks' logo makes it out to be. I mean there are a few ways. The first option would be to keep the orca but drop the VANCOUVER text. The second option would be to keep the VANCOUVER text but redesign the orca/C, keeping the same spirit but simplifying it a bit to better match the flat style the text uses. The third option would be to drop both the orca and text entirely and just run with the V/Johnny mashup as the primary.

    Count me as a fan as well. I hope next year's City jersey is this same style but black.

    I respect the Patriots, but I'm just so bored with the Patriots. It's been the same story every year for a 100 years now and I'm ready for something fresh. I want to talk about Boston sports. Has a city ever had a run like this from all its teams? I can't think of one and I don't know if we'll ever see a city have a run like this ever again. It starts in Early 2002 when the Patriots beat the Rams and if you look at just the next ten years up until the Bruins completed the Grand Slam in 2011 it was absurd. 3 Super Bowl wins, 5 Super Bowl appearances, an NBA championship, another finals appearance, a Stanley Cup, ended the World Series drought and won another. What's that, 7 parades in 10 years? Now, 6 years later it's still going. It's just stupid. Since the Bruins cup win they've added 2 more Super Bowls, another World Series, another stanley cup final, and the Celtics are back to contending. The last six years alone would be phenomenal for any city. I guess what I'm saying is Bill Simmons can STFU about how bad the 90's were.

    Apparently 10,000 supporters were consulted as part of the design process. I'm assuming that they were fans of every other club in England, rather than Leeds?

    I think it's a little odd to give Betsy Ross of all people boobs like ya did, but design wise, it's done pretty well. I can get the idea of wanting to give it a more Betsy Ross-ish vibe with her sewing, but I'd try to make her a little more athletic so that it fits in with the vibe of the Ben Franklin logo. That kind of cohesiveness between the two logos would tie together the identity pretty well.

    Agreed. For me it’s the fact that the “VANCOUVER” text and logo just don’t mesh aesthetically. The logo, though recoloured, is still a product of the late 90s. A detailed, aggressive animal logo. The text, meanwhile, is very simple. More in line with current minimalistic trends. It doesn’t look like it was designed to go with the logo because it wasn’t. The result is that the front of the Canucks’ sweater looks like what it is. Pieces of two disparate identities rammed together.

    I agree about the S. I've updated the look with a larger S and added some value to show how a 3 color scheme (Black, Grey, White for now) might play out. It's still in pencil until I get the proper lay out. C&C appreciated.

    Agree that US Bank Tower is more recognizable for LA. Saw it get blown up pretty good in Independence Day. Just for arguments sake I would say the Capitol Records building is more recognizable too. Had no idea what LA city hall looked like before 30 seconds ago Also agree that the most iconic building on the west coast is the Space Needle

    Here to echo that the set from 2003 and earlier was perfect and they could have ridden with that for however long the NFL remains. I always thought they'd come to their senses and go back to it, or something very similar. Yet here we are and the 2004 set remains. Just to awkwardly tie this back into the Jaguars so its not a complete hijacking -- I'm a big fan of the full body cat logos on the sleeves. The Bengals should bring these back and the Jaguars should bring back their Brunell/Taylor/McCardell set if they want to stray away from their current uniforms.

    The US Bank Tower is pretty famous for being in LA. The tall circular building in the skyline always tells me that's LA (you see this skyline in a bunch of commercials, movies, and even NFL RedZone studios). The Transamerica Pyramid is probably also more famous than LA's city hall, in terms of buildings on the West Coast.

    Ahem? The Seattle Space Needle, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower (maybe), and the Hollywood Sign would beg to differ.

    Regardless, it's not sticking. LUFC Managing Director Angus Kinnear just told a local station they're reopening the consultation process for the crest. It makes sense regardless of whether or not you like the logo, because this was a PR fiasco. 16,000 fans had signed a petition to change it within 2 hours. The internet has been destroying it ever since they unveiled it.

    My stance is the 2004 uniforms are the worst things they've ever worn, though they the Nike versions of them do look better than the Reebok versions did and some other teams have come out with far more hideous designs since which makes them more tolerable. I'm also worried what Nike would do with them using present-day design ideas. They had perfect uniforms from 1997-2003 and I'd do a lot of bad things to bring them back. Tiger logo on the helmet? No. never. They should never change the helmets. They have one of the most famous helmets in football. Players drafted by the Bengals often talk about looking forward to wearing it. If you go with a plain helmet with a logo on the side you're just like everyone else. Also there's this weird thing where the tiger head looks really off when it's flipped and facing to the right.

    What made that set so much worse was that Reebok was experimenting with new fabrics that really messed up the piping and the stretch of the letters/numbers. I mean, look at this photo. Three different ways the stripes/piping is presented compared to what they were supposed to look like from their unveiling The lack of gold and the fact that the piping was already going to be inconsistent from the start (look at the linemen's piping being cut off) made this set a bad one from the beginning. Helmet was a fun part of it but it was the only redeeming element to a very bad design

    You should really stop posting here. Seriously - take a break for a while. You've become an embarrassment to your fellow Patriots fans, and contribute nothing to any discussion. Is this a serious question??? Wentz has HOF talent, and the potential to be this generation's Manning or Brady (oh please Brady!) He probably won't be ready to start opening day due to the injury, but when he's healthy, he's the man. If he is ready for opening day, and some dumb ass team like the Vikings makes a panic offer for Foles, then Nick is gone. Obviously having depth at QB is critical in this league, but Foles can turn into a pumpkin at any time, so best case for the Eagles is he's the SB MVP and then they trade him for a nice haul.

    I think the peacock or especially the white rose of Yorkshire were both solid starting points for a logo. Updating the 1984 crest would have been the right choice. We’ve seen updates of worst logos in the past (notably the Man City badge inside a roundel). I don’t think a piece of fan culture should be the main representation of the team. It would be like the Packers having a cheesehead logo or Auburn using a tree covered in toilet paper as their logo.

    Yes, Leeds' old logo is generally ugly and cluttered. Yes, Leeds have never had a great logo to go on. That's not an excuse to pull something like this out. Is the salute an identifiable, and personal symbol of the club? To a degree, yes. But the white rose of Yorkshire is also a much better symbol for the largest club in Yorkshire, and it looks ridiculously better. Some guy on twitter literally just switched the fan for the rose and the logo looked like an upgrade over the previous ones. I really do hope Leeds take his idea, otherwise they'll have one of the worst logos in England.

    They're trying to create more "historical precedent." The longer the script continues, the easier it is for some poor, misguided soul to come along 30 years in the future and justifiably say, "Vancouver having a copy/paste wordmark above their jersey crest is based on historical precedent."

    Ok. Look. I admire the Patriots. They have had success like no one has ever seen before. I respect the out of them. That said, in my lifetime I have witnessed the Patriots go to 8 Super Bowls, winning 5. That number could grow to 6. All of my favorite teams in their total histories have combined for 3 championship appearances. They are 0-3 in those series, with a combined record of 2-12. So, congratulations on your incredible run (and I didn't even total the combined championships that I've seen from the city of Boston). But don't be total heads about it when you win. (only talking to a few of you - most Pats fans on here are completely tolerable)

    Family business has kept me away through all that division/retired number talk. Was going to comment, but after starting and stopping, I don't have the mentality for the deep dive I had planned. Suffice to say, the weight of a division championship depends on the franchise's history, their recent fortunes, and a number of other factors that are unique to every situation. The idea that it doesn't matter for anyone is laughable. When the Rays won the pennant in 2008, they didn't hang an American League Championship banner. Opening day of 2009 they raised a League Championship banner and an American League East Champions banner because for that franchise and especially at that time even though they won the pennant that year the division championship was still important to them. As for retired numbers, the hall of fame shouldn't be a prerequisite. It should be about the person's importance to the team. Think of it as the argument that always gets brought up about the term MVP. Should the MVP be the best player in the league, or (as the name suggests) the most valuable player to their team. The hall takes in a person's worth to overall baseball, while a retired number should celebrate the person's worth to the team. YAUGH!!! His eyes are horrifying! They have falcons and hawks. They once had the Thrashers. On the bird theme someone had mentioned previously, they could have a Red Eagle. Would be a unique bird and also a reference to a figure of the local tribe, covering all bases.

    Had the Seahawks prevailed in the 1983 AFC title game, a Seahawks/49ers Super Bowl in Super Bowl XVIII would've given us this awesome matchup, visually speaking. And the same could be said for a Jaguars/Panthers matchup in Super Bowl XXXI. Can you believe these expansion brethren were one step away from the Super Bowl during the '96 season?
