  1. Future of NFL "Color Rush"

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Pack having an alt that wasn't a throwback. Seems like most fans that are into uniform design think their own team is untouchable and find something to bitch about anyways. As for the color rush, the pant striping is OK by me, since the focus is on monochrome for the jersey, pants and socks. Might as well have that striping match.
  2. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    FWIW, I thought the Rams looked pretty sharp yesterday. Whatever change they may or may not make, I hope they manage to keep the blue of the helmet and jersey matching.
  3. Isthmus: "Wisconsin deserves a better flag"

    Wisconsin, like many states, need a flag makeover. Gothamite's design is my favorite shown so far.
  4. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    It'll be interesting to see what the final outcome will be. If the Chargers relocate, will the league ensure that both clubs have distinctly different colors/look? How much will winning influence if changes are major or minor? Will the new branding be based strictly on owner preference or market research? Speculation is fun, except for waiting out the 3 years to see if predictions come true
  5. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Quick question: Do we know the Rams are rebranding or is it just wishful thinking?
  6. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    And my point about the Niners was that the NFL can and will do anything provided it doesn't screw with vendor schedules. The 5 year rule is solely to accommodate merchandising providers and the investment in inventories. If the team becomes a quick winner AND no investment in new inventories is made, a jump in existing merchandising sales could lead to a change of heart about rebranding, much like the Niners god-awful one-day logo.
  7. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Why? It proves that just because you design it doesn't mean you necessarily move forward with it. The timetable set up is for merchandising. If the LA Rams were a winner while a rebrand was in process and merchandising sales exploded, the team could elect to kill making a change before a new design was released to equipment vendors.
  8. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    Not sure about that. Since the Niners had given up on their one-day logo, anything is possible.
  9. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    If the team starts out as a winner this coming season and the next, the colors won't change. I also doubt a straight up switch back to the 70s colors will happen. Just my prediction.
  10. The Carolina Panthers new logo is HERE

    I find the lower jaw on the new logo distracting. It's like kitty got an injection.
  11. Joe Paterno: Dead

    But Sandusky's passion for little boys is a close second. Really, you had to go there on such a sad day! They are just countering all the apologist bull you're spewing
  12. Repurposing

    Not a word. Common misconception, but 100% untrue. If you start with a logo that isn't yours, it'll never be yours no matter what you do to it. The original story from years ago has been twisted a bit. Gothamite is absolutely correct. If you use a logo as a starting point, no amount of modification will ever make it yours. The "percentage" story was in relation to the comparison of two logos where neither was based off another. It was merely a figure thrown out by either a lawyer or judge (don't remember which) that the similarity couldn't exceed a certain amount. So it was an arbitrary standard used by someone to determine infringement but has no standing beyond that person's judgment.
  13. Get a Share of the Pack

    As nice as having a Super Bowl ring of your own? If you wear the ring all the time, then you'd have a point. Otherwise, you just have the option of buying an exclusive replica. If I have access to the real $30K deal, I don't need the shareholder version.

    The sales tax is still in place. Plus, the stocks have very limited value to the purchaser. I remember the '97 discussions and the "give us the sales tax or we may relocate" rumors/undertone and feeling the same way. That said, if the people buying the stocks value them, so be it. Frankly, I think they should develop the land around Lambeau into sports-themed apartments that would provide a continual stream of income. In the end, it seems like just an expensive piece of paper. I'd rather get more for my money and do more for the team like, buy an authentic jersey.
  15. Get a Share of the Pack

    I think our friend quantum was making fun of us. Just a little. I live in Packer country and get Packer coverage 24/7/365, so maybe my enthusiasm for the home team is a bit more in check. I view these stock sales as just a money grab and they get enough of my money as is. Plus, there are enough business execs in the area with Packer ties that I've tried on two of the Super Bowl rings. A nice perk to living here . I was around for the last sod sale and I never quite understood the appeal. That and I have a few unused boxes from the last sale.
