  1. Well done! I doubt the real Halifax club (should it be Halifax FC as rumored or anything else) will look as good as yours. The reasoning behind the name and colours makes perfect sense. There are a number of different ties in to the community but none of it is "over designed" or over stated, if that makes sense. I know i'm gushing a bit but man, I really like it a lot!
  2. Awesome, excited for this. Seems like we'll see 6 teams next year. Halifax and Hamilton seem to be a lock. Haven't heard anything further but I suspect there will not be a team in an MLS city right away. I know Toronto FC is opposed to it (they want TFC 2 to be the team but this isn't going to be a league for "farm teams"). That's not the point of this thread though so I digress...... I love the CPL logo you have created. Really looking forward to your takes on all the teams. Do you plan on using 1 uniform supplier?
  3. I tried the black can once just for :censored:s and giggles. Just tastes like any regular Rockstar energy drink.
  4. I have a feeling that if the Sens go with the "heritage jersey" look they will not officially make the =O= their primary logo (even if that is what is featured on the front of the jersey). I'd expect they'd keep some form (potentially what you suggest) of the Roman senator as their official primary logo. Granted.....I have literally nothing to base that on, lol.
  5. Chris Creamer's Sports Logo Community...... Missed @chcarlson23 posting that.... My bad.
  6. I know i'm not the first one to say this but opinion, which this is all about, is not fact. That's about the only fact that can be said. For example, over the years I've been on this board (about 10) I found there are a number of posters who's opinions I generally agree with. For the purpose of this post, @Ice_Cap is one that I generally agree with when it comes to hockey aesthetics. In this particular round of opinions, I disagree with his opinion on the Avalanche. I prefer their original look and logo. Does that mean that if I said "Hey they got it right in 1!" that I'm right because "I say so"? No. Of course not. If he thinks it's time the Avs move on? That's cool by me. Frankly I like their 3rds now too. I'd rather they stay 3rds but again, that's just me. Just the same, as I agree with @Morgo that the =O= logo itself is kind of dull as a primary logo. Let's face it. It's just an "O". That said, I think it is still very cool because of it's nod to hockey history in Ottawa and, I like the jerseys that they are on. I also think they should leave the vintage white on those jerseys. So I've got a mix of all sorts of opinions when it comes to Ottawa. Does it mean I'm wrong or right? naw, just means that's what I like. To add my 2 cents? My second favorite Ottawa jersey is this one: I'll even admit it makes no sense that I really like the "really traditional" look just as much as I like their most gimmicky jersey ever. Whatever. I guess I like shiny things. I mean, that's part of the fun. I've seen jerseys that I've liked and come here and read people's opinions (and their reasoning as to why they have formed that opinion) and, as a result, have changed my opinions too. Frankly, when Tampa released their current uniform set, I didn't pick up right away that they looked like the "maple wings" as the joke was going around on the boards. Once I couldn't un-see that, I disliked them. But before that I like it. I felt like, after a number of changes over the years, they finally had one they could stick with. There's a great example of my opinion changing due to reading other thoughts and because of that, changing my mind. I'm rambling now. I guess all I'm saying it's cool to have opinions and share them. It's cool to explain why. It's even cool to say "hey, I disagree with you because _____". But once you start getting mad and making statements of "you're wrong" or "I'm right" or....anything besides for "hey, ok we've talked about this for some time and we just don't share the same opinion". Then it's time to just step back. End of day: this world would be a very boring place if we all agreed on the same thing all the time. ....We'd have a lot more teams like Tampa then, right?
  7. Good question. I assumed the home teams would only play in their home country when reading the article. Don't know why. It didn't say so.
  8. Agreed 100%. But that may be the reason I prefer it.
  9. Ok. So I'm an Avs fan (living in the Toronto area if that matters) who doesn't love the idea of adopting the Rockie logo.....assuming that's what is going to happen. Personally I think the "A" logo is way better. I'd like to ask you this, and I'm not trying to be rude or make a point. I actually am curious. You mentioned that "those teams were just starting up". So when does "just starting up" stop and the logo can't be changed anymore? Is it years or is it 'cause the Avs have won 2 cups? this thread has gotten a little hostile so, just to reiterate, I'm just curious. Not judging, just asking.
  10. I wish it did though. That still looks weird to me.
  11. I think the point trying to be made is that while they are the same colours, they are different shades of those colours. When you throw in the fact that they are placed in different parts of the jersey (The Canadiens red jersey has a blue stripe, Florida's red jersey has a white stripe for example) plus Florida's use of that gold/sand (whatever that colour is officially called) I think @McCarthy is saying he feels that those elements are enough to distinguish the 2 teams. I can't speak for him of course. My personal opinion? I see what you are saying in terms of the blue helmet/red shirt/blue pants/red socks being very similar. I also think that the shades of red and blue are different enough but more so than that; the gold/sand is what really makes it different enough for me. It's still weird to see the Panthers in this look for me but I'm sure that's due to how "new" it is still.
  12. I died laughing when Mike said he was mad he had to buy a Mench. lol RE: the possibility of baseball in Montreal. It always seemed to me that there is a natural fit with Bell. TSN lost a significant portion of programming with the whole hockey thing and while they have used MLS to fill in some of that, having a baseball team would give them a lot more programming for the summer. Plus, they have the money to build a stadium without needing government money. Plus, they've shown that they want to keep the Argos alive for one of their TV property's sake. Maybe it's easy for me to spend their money but I always thought it would be a good fit.
  13. I honestly think that's only a small factor with the Bills series. I'm a Bills fan, purchased the full Bills in Toronto series tickets. It's certainly was not the same but there were a number of factors (in no particular order) 1) I think the Bills thought that, due to proximity, Toronto is automatically a city full of Bills fans. It is not. I saw so many Steelers and Dolphins jerseys in the stadium at the games. I know a fair amount of Lions fans too. My point is that there are a lot of people who aren't Bills fans in the area. You can't assume that there are due to proximity. 2) Tailgating. Let's be honest, you drive down to Buffalo and it's a whole day.You have a couple drinks, eat some burgers/dogs on the BBQ, you toss the ball. None of this is happening downtown Toronto, heck, it's illegal. Budweiser rented a parking lot and attempted a tailgate party. You still had to pay $10+ for a beer (as opposed to bringing your own) and you had to either win or buy tickets to that tailgate party too. 3) Even with 70,000+ people in in area for the game, traffic is significantly better in Buffalo. It's less of a hassle that way. 4) Price of tickets. I had first row in the 500s at about the 40 yard line. If I recall tickets were prices over $100 there. It was so bad that it got to the point that the tickets prices were dropped and they were refunding the difference to the people who bought the full package. To your point about "the big event" people in Toronto will pay for the big event. No doubt, you've heard about the crazy prices some people paid for Jays playoff tickets or the MLS Cup. But this was not a 1-off event this was an ongoing series of games. All those things combined is why I think it failed. Throw in that Bon Jovi and MLSE don't really seem to be buddy-buddy anymore and I'm convinced that the NFL won't be coming to Toronto. At least, not in the foreseeable future.
  14. my mistake, for some reason I thought they did not win it in 2014-15 (first ECHL year). Guess I should have looked it up before posting.
  15. They just won the championship last season with that name. Timing seems weird to me.
