    MLS Nashville unveils logo

    The only two things I like about the Nashville branding is that they kept the name and they kept gold/yellow/mustard or whatever you want to call it. The USL branding is 1000 times better than what was released today.

    Unrealized Stadiums

    The Reds looked at renovating and retrofitting Riverfront Stadium including renovating the outside and shifting the field orientation slightly to face the skyline rather than US Bank Arena and the river. They slightly went through with this when they tore out seats to make room for building Great American Ball Park. Two sites for the Reds were considered, the riverfront and Broadway Commons. This was the proposed riverfront site where GABP is This was the Broadway Commons stadium. It wasnt in a good neighborhood. Today its the site of the JACK casino. In the 90s when both the Reds and Bengals were looking at new stadiums, the Reds were looking at the Paul Brown site while a new or renovated stadium for the Bengals would be at the existing Riverfront Stadium site. Cincinnati briefly proposed bidding for the 2012 olympics that would have added more venues including the Olympic Stadium on the other side of the bridges and Paul Brown Stadium and GABP This bid included retrofitting Nippert Stadium and building a dome for it.

    2019 MLB Changes

    Did Detroit change to using the one English D on the uniforms to match the primary logo? Im still waiting on the Reds to drop black. The only black I find acceptable is for their Mr Redlegs character.
  4. All the teams shared the league colors that first season. California and New York were green, black and silver. Florida and Las Vegas wore blue, black and silver. Year two Las Vegas replaced blue with red. Orlando kept theirs the same. California and New York became Sacramento and Hartford and received new branding.

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    They have said that Kannapolis will be part of the name but loved the Piedmont Boll Weevils name. The way MiLB branding has been the past couple years, Boll Weevils would be a good fit.

    NLL Expansion 2018

    Boston has been a rumor. The NLL has had Boston Shamrocks trademarked for about a year.

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    This is their fifth identity they have taken (not counting the Tacos or what ifs) since the team began in 1998. Seems a bit much.
  12. On February 15 the Cincinnati Cyclones will play as the Cincinnati Flying Pigs to honor the cities pork industry, flying pigs and the Flying Pig Marathon. The story behind Cincinnati and flying pigs: In the 1980s, as part of the 200th anniversary of the founding of the city, a park was built along the river and named Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point. British Artist Andrew Leicester was commissioned to construct a sculpture to stand at the park’s entrance. The piece he created consists of four crowned smokestacks, which recall the importance of the riverboat to the city’s history. Atop each smokestack is a small statue of a pig. In an apparent fit of whimsy, Leicester adorned the creatures with wings. He later explained that this was to symbolize the hogs’ ascent to Heaven, as they gave their souls to make the city great.
  13. Its the 49ers. Do they really need to?

    North American Pro Soccer 2019

    Well thats some much needed good news for Sacramento. Sacramento deserves to get into MLS. Phoenix and St Louis have solid bids too. Ultimately I would love to see all 3 in but if MLS is going to stick to its 28 teams then its gonna be a dog fight for that final spot.
