    Yes - the large star is the MLS version of a scudetto. Just not as garish. I can see your objection, but I don't share it. There's something cool about a defending champ wearing that badge of pride. As for the Galaxy, I think five silver stars looks more impressive than one gold one. But mixing and matching? What's the point supposed to be?

    Sigh...this again...? Please stop forcing this 1880s crap on us, that no living person ever saw on the field nor can relate to... If you want fans to hearken back to a long-forgotten era, just eliminate the black and take us back to this:

    I've always felt that this Bobcats set was far superior to the jumbled Mavs-esque mess they switched to. Aside from the strange collars they used, I dig everything about this set.

    Hello all, I had done a brand refresh for the Knicks a while back, prior to the release of the Nike uniforms, but seeing as the Knicks are now in position come next year to be competitive once again (not gonna jinx anything), I decided to give the Knicks an extensive refresh to the team's brand. Colors: The new blue and orange are more reminiscent of the the shade in the teams past, becoming deeper and more pronounced. Silver is removed entirely in the color scheme. Primary Logo: A blend of both the Knicks' 70s logo and the logo from the Present (New York removed). The font is an updated version of the one they currently use. Secondary Logo: Simply a recolor of their current secondary with the silver outlining removed. Uniforms: The chest text on the jersey reverts to the old style the team had used since the 60s and are well known for. The silver outlining is removed entirely leaving only the white/blue and orange on the sleeves. The shorts receive a new side and waist pattern reminiscent of the 70s and 90s uniforms but reworked in color so it matches up with the pattern on the bottom of the shorts. The new primary is also added to the short where the old one was. I welcome any CC and general comments and I hope y'all like it!

    This league is spending some serious dough on branding so hopefully it works out for them

    That last post got me to thinking about DC United. For a moment I considered renaming them to District United, but DCU is pretty iconic at this point. I went away from the eagle, because the black heraldic eagle has always felt less American and more...on a different....Axis...if you know what I mean. DC was planned in a diamond, so let's run with that and their fantastic flag.

    Pretty much every baseball fans know that the movie Field of Dreams takes place in a cornfield in Iowa, my home state. So I thought, why not take that cornfield in Dyersville, Iowa to the next level? I formed a brand new amateur/semi-pro independent baseball league that would take place exclusively in Iowa that would begin play in the year of 1920, the year after the Black Sox Scandal in the 1919 World Series. Ray Kinsella himself, who woke up in the 1920’s instead of 1989, would be the league commissioner. Is this real? Is this a dream? Who cares? The catch is the league cannot play in professional minor league baseball stadiums. They must be played in cornfields, parks, the countryside, or even high school stadiums if necessary. The infield must be regulation sized, but the outfield wall is strongly encouraged to be natural-made, such as stalks of corn, row of trees, bushes, or even a creek. But on occasion, a fence is okay. The players can be anybody above 18. They could be a fresh college kid who’s just looking to play ball, a 30-something year old adult who’s looking to stay fit, or wash-up MLB veterans who just want to keep playing. Doesn’t matter. As long you’re good enough to play, you’re on the team. It is strongly encouraged that the team is mostly comprised of local players. The teams would be placed in smaller towns throughout Iowa, and the bigger cities would naturally dip join the league at points. Some teams would be fictional, some would be based on real-life teams, etc. In other words, this is going to be a Town Team Baseball type league. I found a document that has the historical population for every Iowa cities/towns starting in 1860 up until 2010. So I'll do my best to follow that document for when more teams join the league. Some teams are planned, while some teams I may need help with. I'll solicit for those when necessary. This project has been something I’ve been toying with for quite a while, even during the Solar League Baseball project also here in the Sports Fan Fiction. After seeing the success @Section30 with his Minnesota Amateur Hockey League, and asking for his blessing to do this project due to its similarities, I decided to give this shot and see where it takes us! The teams for the inaugural season will come in the next two posts, one for each league. For the record, I am not using OOTP to simulate this, for I have come up with a simulation method using Excel (it’s quite complicated, but I’ll probably explain in a later post). As for the Solar project, I kind of hate to say this, but I’d say that the league is on a major hiatus. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed doing it a lot, but I just wanted to do something different. I have asked the mods to lock the Solar thread, but maybe, someday in the future I'll come back to it. But no promises. Hope you understand!

    in a vacuum, yes, it could have stayed. or as @VancouverFan69 says, it could have been an effective third jersey (provided the jersey was a little more toned down. the rangers' lady liberty look was, in my opinion, very classy, especially the white version). but as an islanders fan who watched this whole thing go down live and in person, let me assure you that it needed to die the quick death it did. you cannot even imagine how much outrage there was over this logo/sweater. i was in elementary school at the time it was introduced, so of course i loved it. us young kids were the only ones who did though. and as the situation with the franchise got more and more dire, the fisherman logo really became a lightning rod for the fans' outrage. the "save the islanders coalition" was this outspoken fan group that made changing the logo, among other grievances, their mission. i was in the stands in april '96 when they sent (i believe) rich pilon out in the fisherman jersey, then ripped it off to show the 'wave' jersey with the traditional crest. the coliseum went nuts. as far as the prototype differences, it was really only the diagonal/wave hem stripe. some early starter replica jerseys actually had the diagonal stripe on them.

    Just another one of those great American achievements, like the telephone, the Kids in the Hall, or letting anyone go to the doctor.

    But make the jersey midnight green with silver numbers and all of a sudden it becomes a simple, modern take on the throwback, and a top 5 uniform in the league.

    In a similar situation, in '94, the Yankees switched from polyester to cotton uniforms with disastrous results.

    Not to mention being party to the Chris Paul/Lakers failed trade, which had some butterfly effect into the current superteam mess the NBA finds itself in. New Orleans is the Anthony Weiner of basketball.

    The Blazers just unveiled their 50th season logo for 2019/20: For the most part I really like this, though I’m not a huge fan of the bottom of the 5 being cut off like that.

    Well, that sucks. Awesome identity that has a deep connection to the community the team is based in.
