    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    I think live action will be less favorable than static: anything with dark x-on-x and contrasting outlines is going to look worse in motion and/or at a distance because it gets that much harder to read. It's function following form. Maybe that "screams Miami," but it doesn't make a good sports uniform. This didn't really solve the old set's biggest problems, which were relying too much on black as the team's main color and not using the team's nickname enough. If anything, they made both problems worse.

    I will never stop believing that black-silver-red-orange-yellow-green-blue was a totally awesome color scheme that could have been just as Miamian with the right application. Oh well, RIP.

    2019 MLB Changes

    I think I've said it before but it really feels like the old Washington Senat(ional)ors were way behind the curve when it came to logos and branding. Really not much of a presence there at all.

    Lots of talk about "our colors" while having fewer colors than they had before. Guess the other colors weren't really theirs after all.

    No, there's a type out there.

    Chicago Bears 100th season logo

    Their primary logo is already the Roman numeral for 100, so I'll pretend that's their very clever centennial logo.

    It's good, I just didn't know whether it was an intentional callback to Lebo.

    White liberals are more than happy to cede black people's innate athletic superiority if it means they can claim the edge on intelligence for themselves.

    That's roughly the color palette I wished the Winnipeg Jets would use (medium blue, sky blue, red, grey). Kinda get a Dan Le Batard vibe from the whole thing, though.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week Ten

    The lighting of this photo combined with the Rams' throwbacks makes it look like the Seahawks arrived at this game via time machine.

    I've heard people say similar about the Superdome, which also televises as very, very dark.

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

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

  22. No, silly, this thread isn't about Doug Gilmour! It's about the Phoenix Coyotes. With the Manitobification of the old rolling thread and "Back in the Game" lost to history, we need a new one. Matt Hulsizer gave up on trying to buy the team, if he ever started in the first place, which I contend that he did not. http://www.bizjourna...bid-to-buy.html The buried lede here is that apparently Jerry Reinsdorf is poking around again. If I had to guess, it's probably to buy the team for his son. Haven't heard much from Quebecor, which is just the way the league likes it.

    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.
