    G-League Suns Become Rodeo Clowns For a Night

    oh god it's spreading. Regarding the logo, the clown is alright and the NAZ logo on the hat is good. But that font is bad. I keep reading RUBEO due to the points on the letters and the bowtie blobbing over onto the text. The stars on the tie are so sublimated why even bother. Make them the same color as the NAZ logo. Not a good identity even for a one-off

    Soda/Pop/Branding Discussion & News Thread

    Not going to like, Moxie is very hit-or-miss for people. you either like it, or are absolutely disgusted by it. "Acquired taste" is an understatement. When I was in the Air Force and stationed all around the US I had family ship me bottles and I would share with everyone to see how they reacted. Some enjoyed it and wanted more, some were repulsed by it. Personally I've been around it all my life and grew up with it, so I love it. especially good in the summer with some French Vanilla ice cream to make a Moxie float. I've been tempted to go to Lisbon, ME at some point and join in the Moxie Festival where they have a Moxie chugging contest. I think one of the more recent winners drank it warm.

    2019 MLB Changes

    The cap logo is a great throwback and works as a Spring Training hat but that jersey needs to be the primary home NOW!!!

    FC Cincinnati

    Everyone craps on this all the time and while it is absolutely in need for a touchup, I love that the Revs have about as non-traditional crest as it can be. It's not a roundel, or a shield, it's a blob of a shape that conveys what it needs to. I'll agree the paintstroke look needs to be gone, but for a team named the "Revolution", you almost have to expect them to be different for the sake of being different. Again, it needs to be refined more. Cannot stress this enough that I agree it is grossly outdated. But if they were update I want them to keep the ball/flag shape thing they've had going for over 20 years now. But at least you know who they are at a quick glance and isn't Template Roundel FC or Generic Shield FC where you can literally change the name on the shield and lose nothing. (Looking at you Austin FC) Circling back on topic so we don't derail too far, I like FCC's crest overall. I do get a Beer Label vibe from it which isn't necessarily bad. It can definitely work for the team overall.

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    I love the M! I love how simple it is and especially how it's ontop of the helmet rather than on the side. It's a great feature that will give the helmet a much more distinctiveness among the others. Almost like Michigan/Princeton's stripes or the Rams' horns. Different in a good way is good! The nod to the past on the back of the helmet is a great way to acknowledge the history but not force it. I agree there needs to be some white in there. But maybe once we see them in featured in more natural light rather than through filters upon filters we can see if the colors work well together.

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    It's possible to be traditional while also being new and fun. Brooklyn Cyclones, Lansing Lugnuts, and Montgomery Biscuits (probably one of the best goofy but not-insane names out there) all come to mind. They're not TOO outlandish and digging into obscure...excuse me, VERY obscure local ties to try and make a sell to the community. Things like Rumble Ponies, Baby Cakes, Jumbo Shrimp, Fire Frogs...with very similar logo sets and naming schemes has become gimmicky for the sake of being a gimmick, rather than trying to establish a long lasting name that doesn't make people question "what the hell is a ____________?" It worries me about the new Colorado Springs team that we'll likely get another dumb name that is so disconnected that it's another headscratcher/facepalm. Who doesn't to cheer on the Happy Campers, or the Lamp Chops, or the Punchy Pikas? Throttle Jockeys will likely come out but I could easily see Punchy Pikas """""win""""" the contest. or if it's a legit vote we'll get the Rocky Mountain Oysters and the idea of a buffalo testicle swinging a bat will hopefully cap off the Brandiose-induced redesign fad of these Minor League teams.

    2019 Minor/Indy/Summer Collegiate Baseball Changes

    Once again, all terrible. The only salvageable one is Long Haulers but wind-bent trees? Boot Scooters apparently has to do with a welcoming attitude...yet Bronc Busters has to do with their independent spirit. Beef Capital of the World is apparently Hereford....48 miles southwest of Amarillo. Jerky itself is just bad Sod Poodles? Just......what? I googled it and guess what all the search results were? all about the new Amarillo baseball team!!! nothing about Prairie Dogs. I call bullcrap on that name choice. MiLB continues to be full of head-shaking decisions about branding.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Do the blue shorts not have the DC logo?
  10. #BanBudLight #dillydillydone but for reals the parade was fun. First one I’ve been to since the ‘01 Pats rally. Son had a blast. Great bookend for this year for him.

    Why aren't these the primaries again?
  12. As I said before, it’s incredible that I got to take my son to his first game the same year they won the World Series! I think that’s an amazing memory. great job by the Dodgers (except Machado. What a scumbag). I saw some incredible talent on their team. Walker Buehler was insane to watch him shut down the Boston bats. Hell of a Series overall. exctied to celebrate in the city the next few days. Yeah Sox!
  13. World Series Champs!!! Congrats Sox!!!
  14. On one hand I feel bad for Madson. He keeps allowing inherited runners to score. That can’t be good for his confidence as a reliever on the other, Moreland absolutely crushed that one! WHOO
