    I made a joke about how y'all would yourself if they brought the colors back, and no one laughed.... (Shameless plug for a dead thread is shameless)

    I like the more aggressive logo but I also like the old colors. I did a quick color change a while back and I think it looks great.

    Hello everyone, about a year ago I decided to make a fictional soccer league from my home state of Minnesota. I had a lot of fun doing that and have decided to make a league with 20 teams all across the USA. The American Premier League was founded in 1960 and has teams all across the country, there are 2 conferences, east and west with 10 teams in each. For this series I tried to give some cities that don't have MLS teams a team, some markets are too big to leave out however. each team will have a home, away and third kit, home and away are related to the team and its identity while the third kits are more like a city or state uniform. The league has a deal with Nike to be the leagues manufacturer for kits until 2021, so all the teams are Nike. I look forward to this series and I hope you guys do too, feel free to discuss about the teams and what you'd like to see, without further adieu, lets get started! The American Premier Leagues logo is heavily based on the logo I used for the Northstar Soccer League last year, it is a soccer ball with a star at the center and APL below. The leagues colors are red white and blue to match other leagues like the MLB and NBA.

    Ok, so I did a couple to get this thread started so I'm just going to get them out of the way. Up next we have the second oldest club in the American Premier League, Inter New York. The winningest club in the league with a whopping 14 championships they are located in the Borough of Queens but represent all 5 Boroughs. Founded by Italian immigrants, their identity is heavily influenced by Italy. Hated by most teams in the league they are comparable to the Yankees in baseball, they always are at the top of the tables and if they are in a rough patch they are able to buy the best players to be the best again. Though they have many rivalries their biggest by far are the "New York Derby" with Buffalo, the "Inter-Rover Battle" with Boston, and their cross nation rivalry with LA. Inters fans are known for bringing flares to games at both home and away, at home games the stadium lights are turned off as the teams come onto the pitch while fans light the stands with flares. Inter's logo is an oval like what is commonly found in Serie A in Italy. The green white and red stripes in the logo are made to look like the Italian flag and there is an outline of the Empire State Building in the white. The year the team was founded is above the team name. On the top of the oval there is a crown meant to symbolize Queens, where the team is located. Their home kit is a green base with a red and white vertical stripe, red pants and green socks, Inter's crown logo is on the front of the socks as well, they wear this every chance they get. Their away kit is a simple white base with alternating colored sleeves and socks meant to look like the Italian flag. Inters third kit is in the colors of the City of New York's flag with orange and blue, the silhouette of the Empire State Building if sublimated on the front of the jersey, the stripes on the logos are also recolored to the New York City flag colors.

    "Excuse me, sir." 'Can I help ya?' "Umm... I hate to tell you this but, you're sitting in the Chase Lounge, brought to you by Chase Bank, and, well the rules explicitly state that no merchandise representing the visiting team may be worn in this area, so I'm sorry but I'm going to have to take your hat and jersey. You may pick them up after the game at the Del Taco Confiscation Zone." 'You gotta be kiddin' me, why?' "Well, to improve the atmosphere of the game for our Lightning and our fans, only Tampa Bay hockey merchandise are permitted here. I'm going to need those items." 'Umm, okay... I guess, heah and heah. Can I, please, get back to the game now?' "Ohp, Is that a Boston Bruins undershirt? I'm sorry I... I kinda need to take that too." 'Yah really stahtin' to piss me off buddy, but whatevah, *takes off shirt*, heah. Now go. I wanna watch.' "Of course sir thank you so much for your coope...ration. Umm, okay this is awkward, but I just noticed those pants you're wearing, are those Bruins pajama pants?" 'Ya, of course. Wait, naw, come on, listen man, the AC's freakin' crankin' in heah, I'm already shirtless, just let me watch the game now!' "Sir..." 'Fine!!! Heah, take em'! You want my freakin' first bawn son too?! Geez! Now leave me alone!' "Sir. Your... your boxers please tell me those... tell me those aren't Bruins boxers. Please." 'Mmhm. Hold on. *takes off boxers* Heah. This never happened. Go.' "Yep." And that's the story of how Tommy got to watch a hockey game without any inhibition. Tommy beat the system. Tommy also got a coupon for a free upgrade to deluxe nachos for his inconvenience. Tommy wins.

    San Diego State's basketball program recently joined the exclusive list of teams outfitted by Jordan Brand. As an under-the-radar program relative to most of the others on Jordan Brand's roster - UNC, Georgetown, Marquette, Michigan, Oklahoma, Florida, and Houston - I began investigating SDSU's identity. While their football team has a very unique and relevant look, the same can't be said for their basketball team. Their home and away uniforms are incredibly bland, though I do enjoy the clean, classic look of their throwbacks. In addition to the blandness, the typeface feels a bit dated and the colors lack purpose. Starting with a new template I've been working on for NBA concepts, I employed a design very similar to that of the Cleveland Cavaliers' Statement Edition jerseys. I recognized the scapula highlights from SDSU's Kawhi Leonard-era uniforms, and the additional highlight on the front collar helps add intrigue. (Side note: I greatly appreciate @aawagner011 and the NIKExNBA template that was shared here on the forum; I found the tags and some of the curves to be especially helpful in developing my template!) Next, I cleaned up the typeface for the home and away uniforms -- it preserves the sentiment of what they currently use, but with less rounded characters and less angular serifs. It also eliminates spacing issues by separating 'SAN DIEGO' from 'STATE' and placing the numerals in between. The alternate uniform receives a cursive 'Aztecs' script. Finally, I took some inspiration from Nike's emphasized use of color in the NBA to create a more vibrant and exciting look. SDSU's identity previously contained metallic gold - from 2002 through 2012 - and it makes a reappearance here as an accent color on all three uniforms. The use of metallic gold accentuates black and red as primary colors and helps differentiate SDSU from other black, red, and white teams (Louisville, Texas Tech, UNLV, New Mexico, etc.). With simplicity being the dominant aesthetic in college basketball currently, I avoided adding clutter via side panels or additional trim. I have yet to finish my template for the shorts, but that would likely be where additional design elements and logos are placed to create a cohesive look. Please let me know your thoughts -- any and all thoughts, ideas, comments, and criticisms are greatly appreciated!

    The fisherman is better than the Islanders' classic/current logo. Yes, I'm an Islanders fan.

    My favorite thing about the Under Armour logo is that Auburn University is forced to wear UA on their uniforms.

    Usually I'm pretty respectful as an away team fan at a game. You gotta know your place. But if the team made me remove my jersey, Id probably go out of my way to be obnoxious when my team scores lol

    One time I wore a Cubs hat in Bridgeport and a guy called me a f-cking f-ggot. Classic misunderstanding: I'm not gay.

    Interesting thesis, I respect that. Not even the classic Oilers, light blue Ole Miss, or Carolina blue UNC?

    Our first team is also the oldest team in the league, Buffalo City FC was founded before the American Premier League was around and the Bison have the second most League Championships. Their colors are blue and yellow to match the colors of the old city of Buffalo Flag, they are most commonly know by a few names mainly the Bison and the Herd, but their rowdy supporters have earned themselves the nickname the Thunder, legend has it when they won their first championship the crowd was so loud it sounded like thunder miles away. Much like the Bills Mafia the fans are known for their pre-game tailgates and marching to the games, "Lets Go Buffalo!" chants are common place at any APL event, even if City isn't playing. They have one of the most historic rivalries in the league with the "New York Derby" with Inter New York. History, a loyal fan base, and years of being a premier team have made Buffalo City FC one of the proudest programs in the American Premier League. Their logo is based on the shield from the old flag of Buffalo with a bison ready to charge in it. Their kits are fairly simple, their home is a classic blue kit with a yellow band around the front. Their away kit is yellow with darker yellow horizontal lines and sleeves. And their third kit is all white to represent the crazy amounts of snow they get in Buffalo, it also features the Niagara Falls sublimated on the front of the jersey.

    The Blue Jays did more than handle the recoloring better. There's a strong argument to be made that the modernization of the lines was also better handled by the Blue Jays.

    Growing up, my younger brother used to think that IU's I and interlocking U logo was a cactus. "What the heck do cactuses have to do with Indiana?"

    Comparing racial injustice to goddamn hockey might be a biiiiiiit of a reach. (Also, it's kind of insulting...I can't exactly take off my black skin when asked.)

    I still don't see what the issue would have been with using their basketball font. It's less generic than the one they're using. Also, "Earned Not Given" will always be associated with LeBron James, not Virginia football. They really couldn't come up with an original slogan?

    Liz : You could've burned the place down. Dennis : I wish I had burned the place down. There's no reason to live anymore. Liz : What happened? Dennis : The Islanders lost tonight. Liz : Doesn't that happen a lot? Dennis : I knew you wouldn't understand.

    Just some nice words about this series as a whole. I'd call it a triumph. The designs have been fresh and innovative. Modern and yet still clean and classic. If Under Armour gives us anything like this in a year we should consider ourselves most fortunate.
