  1. Denver Nuggets New Logos Details, NBA Trademarks Wordmark

    Born and raised in Denver. This is the first time I've heard about Palmer Lake's famous star.
  2. Denver Nuggets New Logos Details, NBA Trademarks Wordmark

    They really don’t. And I honestly don’t think they have ever known what they wanted to be. Going back to their beginnings, it’s one tweak after another pretty much every year. I would love to know the number of years where the Nuggets didn’t make any changes to their look. I bet it’s in the single digits.
  3. NBA G-League Still Needs to Expand

    As the crow flies it’s under 800. Driving is where it gets bumped above 1,000. You have to drive around a couple mountains.
  4. NBA Changes 2018-19

    I'm not opposed to this color switch, but I am very wary of what the uniforms will look like. I keep my expectations very low when it comes to this organization. They just need to pick an identity and stick with it. Stop switching every decade. I am going to miss the current mountain primary, though. It's really goofy looking, but I always liked it.
  5. They are very close (I'm assuming on purpose) to the design used by the old Colorado Rockies. i would prefer a lighter shade of blue, but overall I really like these. A huge upgrade, and probably the best they've ever looked.
  6. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Blue and white just doesn't read as tiger stripes. They look more like zebra stripes, clouds, or some kind of weird camo design in those colors than they do tiger stripes. While it's not as busy as the Bengals' uniform, I wouldn't call it better by any stretch.
  7. NBA court database

    300 days of sunshine per year.
  8. I dream my painting and I paint my dream

    I guess I'll throw a few of my pieces up here. I started painting two years ago as a way to relax and haven't stopped since. I use oil paint on canvas. I have no training/classes to my name and struggle doing any kind of detail so my style is very abstract and erratic. Basically just shapes and colors. "Underpaid" 48x36 "Self-Titled" 40x30 "Julius Swerving Pt. III" 24x30 "I Wanna Get Killed By The Government" 40x30
  9. Name That Font!

    What font do the Colorado Rapids use in their logo?
  10. Name That Font!

    Can anyone tell me the font that this comes from? Or something that is pretty close, I really just need the 5.
  11. Political Logos

    FWIW, I think it's less that and more trying to be short and pithy. "TRUMP," "Bernie!" and "O'Malley/O'M" are the same idea. Also, you don't get "Jeb" without his surname -- Jeb is actually a shortened "John Ellis Bush."
  12. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    My guess is that it's because the Rockies stunk. It was a combination of a lot of things. Hockey just wasn't that popular in Colorado back then, the Nuggets were pretty good and really popular at the time, the team was awful, and there was a revolving door of owners who didn't really care about the on ice product. Plus, they were originally supposed to move to NJ in 1978, but the arena wasn't ready yet. So, they had to wait until 1982. That pretty much killed any interest the city had in the following 3 seasons.
  13. 2015-16 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    It reminds me of the cubs as well, and I see the Colorado flag everyday. I don't like the new patch at all. It's rather lifeless in the Avs color scheme, and recoloring flags never looks good to me. Plus, the yeti foot was a perfect shoulder patch logo.
  14. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    I'm fairly certain that the shades of colors have not changed at all.
  15. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    Nuggets just posted this on instagram. Apparently their "new" uniforms will be unveiled tonight as well.
  16. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    Not just the yellow. They are tweaking all three jerseys and getting a new alt (most likely a navy city pride jersey). The changes to the existing jerseys are: - New script fonts for home/road. - New number font for all jerseys - Now using retro font for yellow alt. - Scripts are now yellow on home/road - Numbers are now navy on home/road - Navy replaces yellow on home/road collars - Navy arm trim on home/road It's really interesting that they would make yellow more prominent on the scripts, but then minimize it in favor of navy on the numbers and collar/sleeve trim. Also, the updated fonts may mean a slightly tweaked primary logo for next year.
  17. Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    From some of the rumors earlier this year, I think Colorado will affiliate with San Antonio and then Florida will affiliate with Springfield.
  18. Name That Font!

    What font is used for the "Extreme" word mark on the right hand side?
  19. 2014 NFL Season Thread

    Richard Sherman is exactly what the NFL needs more of. I love that dude, even though he was talking smack on "my" team. He's a great heel - a dude who plays the role of the bad guy, but isn't really a bad guy. NFL should be about fun - and you need characters to be fun. Nice guys can be fun, but bad guys can be more fun. It's nice to have a bad guy to get behind who isn't really a bad guy. It's professional football - it's all about entertanment - and characters are entertaining. He brings a little WWE to the NFl and I think it's great. I completely agree! I'd gladly take more people like Sherman over the same old Manning/Brees more boring than grass personalities.

    It's really not. It amazes me how people who were beaten as a child, for the most part, are so supportive of continuing the beating. They went through these beatings, understand how damaging it is to a kid, and just how :censored:ing painful it is, yet they turn around and do it to their kids. And if your response is "Well it happened to me and I turned out ok." No, you didn't.

    What made you think you could trust them in the first place? Let's not act like this is anything new. Players (in all sports) have been beating their families and murdering people for decades.

    Internalized misogyny.
  23. 2014 NFL Season Thread

    I don't know about "huge" news, but I guarantee there are numerous small arrests, disputes, minor scandals, and other shenanigans that go unmentioned on a near weekly basis.

    I completely understand a 4-game suspension for this. I just can't, for the life of me, figure out how Ray Rice only got 2 games. It's called context. I don't know how many more times I can say this, but players who are facing multiple offenses are ALWAYS going to get punished harder for breaking the rules. I understand that, but that is if the two offenses are comparable. These two are not.
