    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    no surprise they ditched Loria's handpicked "Joan Miro green" for Jeter's "Definitely Not By Any Means Reminiscent Of Yankee Stadium blue"

    The old joke is that any black guy at a grocery store in Green Bay will be assumed to play for the Packers.

    That's a really bad logo. The Miami script is amateur hour all the way.

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - Indianapolis Arrows Added/Updated

    I do like lazily designed scripts. That's why I'm so upset!

    MLB: The Defunct Saga - Indianapolis Arrows Added/Updated

    Blackletter is always a valiant attempt at getting around the limitations of the letter I, it works wonders for O, but I think it needs a top and a bottom to read as an I. It's hard for me to get too much into the "character" of the city of Indianapolis, but black and red somehow feels too dour for an Indianapolis team, especially on grey. My experience with Indianoplace is that it's not quite as German and old-stock as Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Cincinnati. It just is. I don't know what color palette would best reflect their just-is-ness. Those original Arrows designs have aged like a banana in the sun, I think we can agree on that.

    Potential CFL Halifax Names

    Halifax seems like a neat little town and I want to visit one day. It'd be cool if they got a sorta-major team. But I don't trust the Ice Edge clowns to do it.

    Yeah, I see what you're talking about with the wave in the flag. Probably just a bad trace. How many years did it take to unearth this logo, anyway? For a long time it was just talked about as "almost Flying Elvis but not."

    I have been summoned to defend the rejected Patriots logo. It has strength and forward motion, which seem like good football team concepts to me. Flying Elvis is just the rejected logo reduced to a little flared brushstroke, which looks passable on helmets but silly everywhere else, lacks heft alongside other NFL logos, and is also needlessly abstract. A Flag Head Man, I can sorta get why that would exist, how a team called the Patriots would arrive at that. But why is this minuteman fading into a point instead? I tried to combine the two prototypes and update the colors. I think this would look just as good on a helmet as Flying Elvis. It would not have worked on the shoulders of the drop-shadow-italic-number jerseys, but that's a trade I'm willing to make.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Coyotes had a flag-inspired secondary, but it deviated enough from the flag (state outline, no star) to be okay, I think.

    Is it good protocol to recolor a flag to your liking? The Blue Lives Matter flag makes me feel uneasy and while the purple and orange Suns flag doesn't have the same authoritarian imagery behind it, it still doesn't feel like the right move.

    I think you made the most of the Denver Pirates idea with the city flag inspiration, but that's one I wish had been a full-scale rebrand if it had happened, and we're all glad it ultimately didn't. I dig the Pirates in New Orleans, though, especially in old gold.

    Well, he's one photoshop filter away from looking like a Rockwell painting there.

    2018-19 NHL Season

    I think it was very funny that John McDonough went on the Score and ended an interview with "and I just want to say one thing, people think Scotty Bowman has a lot of power in our organization, well, I'm here to tell you that he doesn't! Thanks for having me on, guys, bye" and the hosts were just like "uh, we didn't say he did." 1) Why do you think it's a positive to deny that the greatest coach of all time has held significant influence in your highly successful organization? 2) Why did you offer this without a prompt? Sports is a funny business. All these front-office guys were unparalleled geniuses until Duncan Keith's knees wore down and now they're all too dumb to fog a mirror.
