  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. NBA court database

    300 days of sunshine per year.
  4. 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
  5. Name That Font!

    What font do the Colorado Rapids use in their logo?
  6. Who to support in the Premier League

    Yes, yes it is. John Cena, Peter Forsberg, Rupert Grint, and myself welcome you to the fan base.
  7. 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.
  8. It's a shame that his attitude and legal problems tanked his trade value. I was hoping they could get at least something for him other than role players and a protected 1st. I think Ty will turn it around in Houston, though. His biggest problem here in Denver is that he didn't really want to embrace the leader role, and everyone in Denver was demanding that he be the leader. With Harden and Howard in Houston, it will give him some breathing room and give them a much needed point guard.
  9. Bird Rights. Anyone who was on the team to end the season, they can resign, even if they are over the salary cap to begin with. Is it that simple? The Heat won't have Bird Rights for Hassan Whiteside at the end of next year. No idea why not.Anyway, LeBron, Wade, Carmelo, and Chris Paul are apparently all on vacation together. Can't wait to find out what scheme comes out of that. Pretty sure the Cavs can just trade Love for Melo with only a little extra salary filler. WHO SAYS NO? Hassan hasn't played three seasons with the Heat, that is why. Yeah, it's stupid. Neither has Kevin Love or Iman Shumpert. It may have to do with minimum service time as well. As far as LeBron and them on Vacation... for the first time, I'm being optimistic as a Cleveland sports fan: There may be a shot Wade comes to Cleveland. I'm not sure how (I would assume Brendan Haywood's contract), but I could see something like LeBron expecting $22-25 million next year, but instead, him and Wade split, $14 & $11 and both come to the Cavs. Again, no idea how it would work with trading for D-Wade and what not... but I could see it happening in another city, so why not Cleveland? Bird Rights have to do with the contract, not the team. While those two changed teams, the contracts stayed the same. Love and Shumpert's last contracts were 3 years or longer and qualified for Bird Rights, therefore they are able to be re-signed with minimal impact on the cap. The NBA really needs to make some wholesale changes to the way their salary cap system works, because it is unnecessarily complicated.
  10. 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."
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

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

    Nuggets just posted this on instagram. Apparently their "new" uniforms will be unveiled tonight as well.
  15. I don't understand the blue and black at all. If you are going to use them that sparingly, why even use them at all? They don't add anything of value to the logos or uniforms. The font leaves a lot to be desired, as well. It's too boxy, and comes off rather lifeless. And, like Admiral said, they way the cream and white interact is not pleasing. They don't contrast enough with other to have them right next to each other, especially on the road script and number.
  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. LA Clippers New Logos & Uniforms?

    You gotta save money some where...
  18. Tennessee pays 46k for new State Logo

    Again, the price tag is for the whole entire process, not just for that one logo. Also, you are just assuming that all they received was this logo. The firm most likely developed letter head graphics, signage graphics, a new website along with website graphics, marketing graphics, and countless other things to go along with the state's new brand.
  19. Tennessee pays 46k for new State Logo

    That actual logo may have taken a short time to make, definitely not three minutes though. Like JP said, that's an ignorant statement. But you have to take in to account the entire process of coming up with a logo for that big of an organization. Interviews, observations, mock ups, sketches, etc. Plus material costs, travel costs (depending on the firm they selected), etc. While the logo they settled on doesn't seem very detailed. They probably came up with 20 or more fully finished logos, plus countless revisions on a few of those. Until finally, the board (comprised mostly of boring old men) chose this logo. You are judging the final outcome without considering any of the process.
  20. Deflategate -- Patriots Busted

    That's the real basis for the whole 'integrity of the game' line. It's so that the people who bet millions of dollars on the games can have some comfort in knowing that the game is at least kind of fair. Gambling money is usually at the heart of all the decisions that are made to better the 'integrity of the game.' There's just hypocrisy abound throughout this story. Especially coming from the fans.
  21. 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.
  22. Cincinnati Bearcats officially join Under Armour

    They still have about 25 FBS schools that they outfit.
  23. What? It's a barracuda, not a shark. Two completely different animals.
  24. Name That Font!

    What font is used for the "Extreme" word mark on the right hand side?
