  1. Definitley. The logo is very retro, but just not in a good way. I don't see it as being an instantly recognizable mark.
  2. I hate the shield and absolute blandness of the shirts. They look like they were just picked from a catalog and color-filled to match the team's colors. WHY couldn't Spurs have stayed with UA????! (I know...$$$)
  3. Awesome. I love to see that you're keeping this going. You've had some really fantastic designs. Can't wait to see more.
  4. I couldn't disagree with this more. It's another bland Nike kit stuck on a template with absolutely no added design elements. It's a straight kit template. I prefer all of these home shirts over the leaked Nike:
  5. Here's what we have in New Orleans:
  6. I'm guessing she never will.....SHE WAS THERE! Of course there's absolutely zero chance of her mis-remembering...right?
  7. Yep....my initial thought was a UNC logo pin from back in the day. Definitely not Gumbo. Per THIS ARTICLE from last August, the dog was given to the team on Sept 12, 1967...only 5 days before the team's first game vs the Rams. It's highly unlikely they would have had pins of mascot. My guess is that it was either a pin given out at the game because they played the Rams or it's a UNC pin. Here's the original "Gumbo" mascot:
  8. Absolutely, I was just pointing out that it makes more sense to say they resemble those peer schools with actual purple/gold color-schemes over a school like Pitt. Personally, I rarely like when teams/schools switch to darker shades of colors. I like the bright yellows, kelly greens and royal blues in sports.
  9. I'd argue that the colors are too close to James Madison and Western Carolina.
  10. I think it's a good look overall.....especially after seeing what Nike has done with other clubs. I'm not a fan of the mismatched sleeves and I would prefer a wider font for the numerals. Other than that. I think it's fine.
  11. I'm right there with ya. Po' Boys would have been so much better (even if it is equally as cheesy).
  12. To me, it isn't the branding that's the problem (I actually like most of the logos and the color scheme)...it's that stupid, stupid nickname.
  13. There's really no way to know unless it were to happen. if i had to venture a guess, though, I would probably stop following the NFL as much and put most of my focus into college FB and the Premiere League.
  14. I love threads like these. Prior to Katrina, the Saints and City of New Orleans were at odds over the Superdome. The Saints basically wanted a brand new stadium and the city/state wanted to renovate the Superdome. Out of all of this, a number of potential locations for a new stadium were discussed including one in the suburbs about 30 miles from the city (but less than 10 min from my house ) as well as a stadium on the Mississippi Gulf coast (even further from New Orleans). There were two potential city sites that were discussed and both ended up with concept art. The first would have been in the Algiers district of New Orleans, across the river from downtown. This site is a mix of old warehouses and industrial buildings and homes. The second would have been a location just on the edge of the French Quarter with an open end looking into the historic district. This stadium proposal would have eliminated a large public housing development and caused quite a stir when proposed.
  15. Agreed....which is what makes Nike's use of this template so bad.
