  1. I dunno. Seems to fit with some of the other teams. Yes, it's a dull boring old-tymey bland letter on a Congress of Ukrainian Nationalism flag. But that's what it seems like they're trying to do. It's O6 Dressup without the copying of an O6 team. if anything they're trying to play pre-O6 dressup. But it just sorta....fits. perhaps if the original Senators had been able to last and not go to St. Louis and still wearing the Times Roman =O= it would be considered a benchmark legacy identity that can't be touched. If anything, this is a prime example of the mindset of "if this team did it nowadays, it would be mocked and ridiculed for being unimaginative" I say they go all out with it. Embrace the O, go full barberpole, and not the two lines half-assed one. I mean FULL BARBERPOLE Keep the Centurion as a 3rd with the PROPER 2D aspect, and put it on the shoulders, and absolutely own the look. People have mentioned that certain teams should own a color in their league? have the Sens own an entire LOOK (At least until the Seattle Metropolitans show up and do their red/green/white barberpole)

    USL getting aggressive the past few days

    Memphis? It's not listed on the USL site, and NCFC and ATLUSL got put up there pretty darn quickly
  4. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    and thus begins the final demise of the NASL.. in the middle of all this, I happened to catch something odd in the background of NCFC's announcement... Penn FC to Make USL Debut in 2018 Apparently the Harrisburg City Islanders have rebranded as Penn FC oh, and even further news apparently: Atlanta United to Field USL Team in 2018
  5. NHL 2017-18

    I don't mind the Senators as I'm partial to the vintage Times Roman =O= (c'mon, Times ROMAN!! It totally fits the theme they were going for!!! *taps mic* hello?) Anyways, I kinda wish that they weren't playing dress-up with another entity's Stanley Cup victories on their sleeves. If anything, the Centennial Classic should've been between the teams with the most Stanley Cups between them, The Canadiens and the Maple Leafs. Between them they've won a whopping 39 Cups! That would've been a better way to celebrate hockey. Not with a 90s expansion franchise that's completely unrelated to the team that won those over 100 years ago. either way, I do like the red variant of the =O= jersey

    I feel like there's some level of irony that a team that may not exist next year won the championship of a League that is struggling to maintain itself as well. The Cosmos being involved is just some poetic justice thrown in for fun

    not saying this was fixed.... (but this was totally fixed) Congrats to the Astros!! Great Series overall
  9. Fun With Flags!!!!

    This one kinda snuck by the radars. Apparently in August, Mauritania changed their national flag with a referendum. from to The obvious difference being the addition of the two red stripes that "symbolize the blood shed in the struggle for independence from France in 1960". However, this isn't without massive controversy. " The ‘oui’ vote also amended Mauritania’s constitution to abolish the Senate, which functions as the upper house of parliament." This has been described as a massively cunning and sneaky move by the President(dictator) which used the vote as a means of propaganda. Voting to keep the Senate also meant voting against honoring the martyrs from the independence fight. While I do like the design a bit better with the two stripes, this makes New Zealand's recent referendum and the backlash against it look like a spitting contest compared to what's going on in Mauritania.

    I'm slightly bemused that 3/4ths of the Western Conference Semifinalists are the former USL teams that made the jump. Cascadia really knows what they're doing with their soccer it seems. And with Portland winning in 2015 and Seattle last year, there's a lot of pressure on Vancouver to continue the trend
  11. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    Portland had decades of Timbers backings to support moving to MLS Orlando showed that they were willing to support a successful franchise through their growth into MLS Atlanta had a pretty rabid fanbase for the Silverbacks IIRC.... How the hell do these rich idiots get rich? Let alone buy a sports team....I swear there are so many dumb people with deep pockets....... I said it before, I feel sorry for the Columbus fanbase that this jackhole is the owner of your franchise.
  12. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    This is pretty sad for Columbus who was able to weather the rough patches of the early MLS days (better than the original Clash/Earthquakes, Mutiny, Fusion) and help set the trend for SSS's to come. I will say on the outside I found it odd that a franchise was placed in Columbus instead of Cleveland or Cincinnati (or even Chicago to start). But this whole thing reeks of conspiracy. The owner saying that a stadium in Austin will be paid with private funds...but can't be bothered to maintain and foster an established culture? That's garbage. I can't imagine what the Crew fanbase is going through. With this, do they support a team now that may be on the brink of leaving? or do they drop their support and basically emphasize what the owner can use as an excuse to leave. Ridiculous to say the least

  14. Portland ECHL Team Unveils Name-the-Team Finalists

    A Minor League team went with the more appropriate name? What sorcery is this? Glad to hear the Mariners name coming back. Excited to see what they will come up with for their logo
  15. sportslogos.net missing logo thread

    I've also been noticing that the North American Soccer section needs a massive revamp. The USL logo still has the USL Pro shown. The PDL also has their older logo shown. There are teams in the USL section that don't exist like the Austin Aztex. I'm wondering if there could be use of a "Defunct League" section at this point for some of the sports, so there's a distinction between active leagues for all sports and those that have come and gone. Just with the soccer section alone, you have MLS next to the original NASL then the A-League with the newest incarnation of the NASL below it, coupled with USL First, USL, and the always fun USSF Div 2 Pro League. Maybe soccer could do with a pyramid style separation with "First Division" with MLS and Liga MX (which also is apparently using an outdated logo for the NA Soccer landing page) and the eventual CPL which looks like it'll be a Division 1 league but not MLS Division 1 (Canadian Soccer Pyramid is screwy), "Second Division" with the NASL, USL, Ascenso MX, etc etc and that could help apply to the other leagues around the world as well for soccer. I'm rambling now. Something to think about though
