  1. The commission has 2 jobs ... 1) uphold the integrity of the game. 2) make decisions to grow the league financially. you can't kill Adam silver for the ads... if it brings in $$ and honesty no one besides us will care. Eventually we won't notice anymore. It will be like a stadium naming rights, or a jersey manufacturer logo, or sponsor logos on the boards in the Nhl. Eventually we won't even think about it goodel is often caught between a rock and a hard place... He wants to protect the shield but then puts his foot in his mouth and makes odd, inconsistent discipline decisions. But no one can say he hurts the game financially or the integrity of the sport. Bettman is a Disgrace--- 3 extended lockouts over his tenure. What else do u need to say. Hockey was huge.. HUGE... In the mid 90s. Gretzky was in LA, Rangers were winning. Mighty ducks movies were big. Kids were playing hockey. The sports was legitamatly growing as a true Big 4. Now look at it... They lost their ESPN deal... Their NBC deal is a joke. There's other Sports more popular like ufc mls. Bettman messed up big time.
  2. Giants just announced: white pants at home full time in 2016 regular season. grey on the road, even if they wear blue on the road (at dallas). http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs/article-1/Giants-to-wear-white-pants-for-all-home-games-view-uniform-schedule/c4f4d08e-14ca-446d-a570-55f9a63e7f6a
  3. Ok if lebron requested them then that makes sense. Still they are fugly as uck.
  4. I'm curious how the sleeve jerseys in Game 7 came about. We know lebron hates them so I can't imagine the cavs would force them on him in the biggest game of his career and the team's history. Could Adidas or the NBA have forced them on the cavs and they either didnt or couldn't push back? Was this one last ditch effort by adidas to sell some sleeved jerseys before Nike took over
  5. At one point I jump on a few leaks and conspiracy theories--- but think about this ... Why would this paper Even exist? Why would there ever be a sheet made by the NFL and Nike with a list of the logos and colors that teams will be wearing on Thursday? Who is this sheet for? Why would anyone ever make this? This isn't a logo slick or a design guide or anything of any usefulness whatsoever. It serves absolutely zero purpose OTHER than to tell people what color the teams will be wearing on Thursdays which is useless to anyone of note with the exception of the people on these message boards. There is no way this wasn't mocked up just for NFL leaks and Us.
  6. AT&TV actually crossed my mind too .. thought it was clever Actually changing the whole company name to AT&TV isnt a terrible idea. theres about 130 years of history with the AT&T name with a company that was literally founded by alexander graham bell ... BUT since they dont do telegraph anymore to my knowledge AT&TV kinda makes more sense American Telephone and Television But won't happen. they announced they are combining uverse and directv into AT&T Entertainment.
  7. I think the chiefs have two Versions of their logo for print use and helmet use. The arrowhead on the Helmet is less.... Bumpy? Not sure how else to describe it. It's smoother on the edges. If u compare side by side you'll see. however re: the colts logo I don't know if it's actually two logos it really might just be how the decal is applied and how it bends around the curved helmet. EDIT- u know on second glance I think ur right. They probably have a version that they think works better on the helmet. Cool observation.
  8. and even then it will just be a coincidence haha the color rush jerseys are almost certainly going to be a color that the team already uses anyway - with a few exceptions like alternate like the rams, a different shade like the jets, or if the raiders go gold.
  9. I refuse to look too much into this ... and now I'm going to .. the NFL tweeted out this photo of the first round picks -- the colors they chose for the backgrounds seem like interesting/odd choices, and I'm wondering if its a subtle hint to the color rush colors. When the uniforms are unveiled lets circle back to this post and see... Before anyone says otherwise, to me this doesn't appear to me to be just aesthetic choices. Some teams have contrasting colors as their logo, some use the same color. It doesnt appear they tried to not put the same color next to eachother - which they may have tried to do so if this was just for purposes of designing the graphic (virtually the entire top row is gold/yellow or grey -- when there could be blue, red, teal, purple). Some teams have the same colors as existing uniforms, but many do not especially the ones that are a color besides white. Many of them match up to that leaked color guide from a few weeks back. notably I see grey for eagles, when it could easily be green or black, red for the giants, lime for the seahawks, gold for the ravens, orange for the dolphins -- colors that you wouldnt normally say are the team's primary colors. One thing I will say is that on most of them where there seemed to be a choice of color for the name/school area they used the darker.. which would explain the abundance of gold and grey in the main area. So - take it for whatever its worth but it is worth keeping an eye on this:
  10. I think you need an identity first before you can have an identity crisis. but yeah since day 1 with that bland nothing logo they've never had any defined identity. No primary color (light blue? navy? orange? yellow?), no mascot, no unique font style or jersey pattern or anything that seperates them from any community rec league. So that makes it easy to have nothing look like they belong to the same branding package
  11. different people see different things.. your logo is much more modern, clean, etc. more "logo" like. The eyes and mouth could have some more emotion in them, but its a good start. it would re-size well and look good on jersey, field, hats, etc. everything a logo should be. The existing logo is a well rendered cartoon bomb with a face. It has shading and depth, but way too many colors for a "logo" - especially the spark on the wick. Having said that, I can understand someone who isnt in graphic design thinking the existing cartoon is better than your logo because it has more going on and from an untrained eye it looks like it took more skill to make. Probably the best of both worlds would be to reduce the colors and shading on the existing logo, especially in the wick and spark. Use one color blue for the body, one color red for the eyes, and the same solid blue for the wick and same color red for the spark. That logo can and should be done with just black, white, blue, and a red/orange.
  12. dont wear this on a tshirt at the airport
  13. Ur right that Renovations are further along than I realized, but the new design only has 13,000 seats. I don't think u can have an NHL team with that size stadium.. (That might even be the basketball layout hockey may be less). They are planning to have 6 islanders games a year there though so we'll see.
  14. In the past 10 years there have been 3 brand spanking new basketball/hockey arenas within 15 miles of Nassau.. Prudential, Barclays, and the $1B renovated MSG. There is also the very serviceable Izod center. Nassau is a subburban county, so there really isnt a way to get taxpayer funding for it. They can't get NYC taxes to pay for it. So it would have to be Charles Wang who is rich but not privately-pay-for-a-$1B-arena rich. And the team isn't premier enough like the Rangers to justify it. Honestly i know people on Long Island are kinda upset, but the move to Brooklyn makes a TON of sense, Its only a little further train ride from Nassau but it also opens up a big market in Brooklyn and Queens and also downtown Manhattan are all short train rides away. The only downside is the stadium layout - if they weren't so delayed in figuring out their plan they could have build the arena together so it worked for bball and hockey. But honestly its fine.. the hockey layout is a quirk of the stadium, but its not the embarrassment i think people are making it out to be. Certainly still doesn't justify ANOTHER 1B stadium a few miles away especially in a suburban area. Right now you have 3 brand new arenas in the area and 2 usable arenas in Izod and Nassau (perfectly fine for concerts and disney on ice etc even if they arent new enough for a major sports team) So it would be really hard to see someone spending so much for a new one. Even the stories I'm hearing about renovating Nassau seems far fetched to me.
  15. I wonder if this has anything to do with a patent thing ... Not sure the specifics but I imagine they are losing some $$ on merchandise since they lost the patent on the logos, so maybe they are in no hurry to put out alternate jerseys right now.
