    USL Division III

    Since the USL is working on creating their Division 3 League, and some identities have already been shown with new teams coming, figured a thread for them would be beneficial. Toronto FC II is moving down from the USL South Georgia Tormenta FC is moving up from the PDL FC Tucson is also moving up from the PDL Teams in Chattanooga TN, Greenville SC, and Madison WI have also been announced. Supposedly Orlando City B will be part of this as well. Along with all that, Greenville has announced their identity, Greenville Triumph SC https://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/sports/2018/08/09/greenville-pro-soccer-looks-triumph-over-competition/933357002/ https://www.usld3.com/news_article/show/940280

    MLB 2019 All Star Game

    I really like that "Cleveland" script. Could be something to incorporate in the future
  3. I have to question a world where "IronPigs, Flying Squirrels, Chihuahuas, and Jumbo Shrimp" are now considered "Classic Minor League Team Names" by their contemporaries.

    Soda/Pop/Branding Discussion & News Thread

    I love Moxie. Have enjoyed it all my life. They went through some weird branding through the 90s and it never felt right. I'm glad they brought back the Moxie boy. Did you know there's an energy drink too? Another odd local soda that I've tried once and just didn't like it was Big Red, which is apparently HUGE in the South Peach and Pineapple and Apple soda just doesn't seem like it would work. but apparently it does!

    First MLB Game Memories

    So today I got to finally do what most dad's hope to be able to do with their young son. I got to take him to his first MLB game. I wanted to wait until he was at least 6 years old so the memories for him would remain with him forever. Or at least stay prominent. It's the simple joy I got to have of being able to walk him up the ramp and stairs at Fenway Park and have him take that memorable look across the field and see the Monster on the other side of the field, players out doing warmups. That lasting image that can create a deep memory forever. The game going into Extra Innings and being won with a Grand Slam certainly helps! I was flooded with memories of my first game with my Dad back in 1989. My dad took me to a Red Sox Old-Timer's Game that included Yastrzemski as part of the ceremonies. My dad wanted me to be able to see Yaz on the field as he grew up watching Yaz play. I find it incredible how the game of baseball can reach across generations. I got to take my son to his first Sox game, my father took me, his father took him, and we think my grandfather was taken by my great-grandfather to a game at Braves field to watch the then-Boston Braves play. I wanted to know how many of you remember enough details of your first game and if it created a lasting memory and even a life-long love of the game that you sometimes think about whenever you watch a game.

    Canadian Premier League

    This entire identity looks like a mess. The H-Flame thing is trying too hard for too many elements without actually committing to any one. Is the left side the beginning of an "F" without the top bar? Is the right side a J? is that negative space supposed to be anything? Is the Flame an F? I feel like this, along with most of the other league logos, are trying too hard to be clever and deliver deeper meanings and just misses on all fronts. None of these seem inspired or recognizable for a top-flight team for a country. The only one that I could actually enjoy would be Valour FC if they just used the V on its own as they're doing here: But I feel like they're just trying to be clever and impose secondary and tertiary meanings and symbols and it all comes across as a mishmash of elements that don't work well together.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    https://www.uslnm.com/ when the hell was this announced?
  8. I like these a lot. They feel like Classic Lakers but with a modern twist. And even if there is some resemblance towards the Celtics, they are two of the premier teams in the NBA as far as Championships are concerned. They should look the absolute best. Now if only they can fix the streaking logo to a true update of the water-droplet one shown a few pages back

    Sierra Mist? Mist Twst?

    Good to see it's going back to the less "edgy" name and awful spelling. The logo looks pretty clean. Still has an odd taste to me that wouldn't cause me to switch from Sprite or even the newer 7up but good for them.

    New Warner Media logo

    I think that logo is still being used by Warner Music Group which is a separate entity now
  11. When Bettman talks his head moves like he’s a wooden dummy in a bad comedy routine. It doesn’t stop moving
  12. I always felt the original version of the Throwback can was a great way to do this
  13. in the Boston area we have a few fun ones floating around Salem Witches Gloucester Fishermen Millbury Woolies Arlington Spy Ponders Maimonides M-Cats Bristol-Plymouth Craftsmen Braintree Wamps Sutton Sammies Holy Name Central Catholic Naps Ashland Clockers Sci-Tech CyberCats Agawam Brownies Bourne Canalmen Hingham Harbormen Northfield Mount Hermon Hoggers Greater Lawrence Tech Reggies Gann Academy Red Heifers Phillips Academy Big Blues (plural, not singular like my high school)

    NFL 2018 changes

    So if every away game they're forced to wear dark, they will burn through those allotted 3 times very quickly. This isn't really any victory for the Rams, especially if their opponents want to force them to look ridiculous

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    oh good, a reason to highlight how awful some state and city flags are. This is also remarkably inconsistent. Minnesota has its state flag, but Indiana has Indianapolis' flag? The Kings, Clippers, and Lakers all use California's flag? Toronto is using the Canadian flag? If you're gonna do fun theming like that, at least be consistent!!! if it's a city name, use the municipal flag. if it's the state, use the state. This irks me in too many ways Edit: So two hats are missing (MEM, DEN) so this isn't a complete listing of what's wrong, but 8 of the 28 teams with hats are using an incorrect flag - Indiana and Utah are both using the city flags instead of their state flags - Both Los Angeles teams, OKC, Phoenix, and Sacramento are using their state flags in lieu of the city flags - As mentioned, Toronto is using the Canadian flag. Some further research stumbled upon "City Flag" hats and the Nuggets do use Denver's flag, but Memphis uses Tennessee's flag. So likely that number is 9 of 30, or 30% of the hats are using a mismatched flag.
