  1. Jackie Robinson Day 2018: New Patches and Everyone is #42

    There’s a reason for the no NOB and the same number. It’s not just to honor JR but also it symbolizes equality and acceptance. No names, no diff numbers, no separation st all to identify the players other than pure baseball talent. Its not fair to call it gimmicky. It’s actully one of the more important and valid tributes in sports. On the the other hand—Star spangled uniforms for July 4 are gimkicky.
  2. NFL 2018 changes

    yeah and ownership said the orange jerseys are coming back. Its possible he meant orange as a color is coming back but i don't see them going with new striping and number fonts... there's not a ton of new ways you can make the Bears orange jersey other than how they already have. Maybe a new pant to go with it?

  4. MLB changes 2018?

    You guys tell me if I'm picking at straws here.... buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut July 4th is for the Declaration of Independence..... "We The People" is the Constitution. I can already see someone saying its just an America thing don't take it so literally.. but i think its much more likely everyone just didn't know the difference.
  5. Stadium art/banners

    I never knew that and I’m really glad you showed that to me. Thanks. I will say the Yankees fans got more creative than any other team I saw do it.
  6. Stadium art/banners

    Was just thinking the other day I really miss when people sitting in front row of yankee stadium would hang up Ks for strikeouts. I’m sure they did it everywhere but it was really a yankee stadium tradition. They would get really creative. Cone heads for David cone, beer cups for David wells, red socks against the Red Sox, pictures of Michael Kay. Really miss that.
  7. NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND MIAMI 1990 REBUILD LOGO

    An idea floated out there in various states of re-branding doesn’t really count as an unused logo. It’s just a concept. Unused logo is something that was actually finished and ready for use but for one reason or another was never actually used.
  8. Super Bowl LIII logo

    I saw the Super Bowl LIII style guide. 1) fear not--- there is PLENTY of Red. The theme is Red Blue and Silver. The color scheme is reminiscent of the late 80s/early 90s SB logos except less muted. Remember despite the logo there was tons of purple in the LII branding. Same thing here with Red. 2) the vertical stripe/gradient effect from LII has been replaced with a sort of geometric pattern, inspired by the stadium. 3) they are using a font similar to diamante extra bold
  9. 2017 Miami Dolphins Creative

    Amazing, You work for Dolphins or is it a 3rd party creative firm?
  10. Super Bowl LIII logo

    Firstly .. why? the Super Bowl is probably the most successful brand of all time. Its up there with the world cup and olympics as one of the most well known events of ANY kind -- not just sports. Name a music event, political event, entertainment event or anything else that is more well known than the Super Bowl? So mediocre logo or not the last thing they need to be doing is re-branding. Secondly... yes, but also yes. There's a few reasons why this does make sense .. While the NFL did of course exist before the super bowl, it was a very very different league. especially early- on it was fledgling, it was second rate compared to college football. The AFL/NFL merger and the Super Bowl IS the modern era of the NFL. The NFL championships before that would be akin to an NFC championship now, so its not really fair to say the providence steamrollers accomplished the same thing that the new england patriots did. NBA and ABA merger added a handful of teams, so the pre-merger teams were still the NBA. But the AFL/NFL was a true merger, it basically created a NEW league. The NFL had strong established branding so they went with that name instead of creating a new name, but the league almost doubled in size. They could easily have merged the NFL and AFL into a new brand say the United Football League. So its really a totally different new league that began in 1966 or 1970 however you want to look at it. Also, baseball does the same thing with their pre-world series history.Its the modern era of MLB, so its not really fair to consider the pre-world series and pre-super bowl leagues as the same. The Super Bowl could use a BETTER standard logo, but they have the right idea-- create a consistent brand. I'm actually surprised so many of the logo-nuts on these boards are against that. Yes the yearly changes were fun but would we accept a watering down of a brand by changing logos every year in anything else?
  11. Super Bowl LII Field

    It looks great from the all-22 view... but in reality on TV most of the game-action is in and around either 25 yard line. So having the SB logo there makes it show on TV way more frequently. Think about it --- how often is the line of scrimmage between say the two 45 yard lines? Whereas basically every drive at least starts on the 20 or 25, and if they make it to the red zone or even field goal range you would see the SB logo on the other side of the field. (meaning many of the scoring plays and therefore many of the highlights will have the logo in it) So from a TV perspective this makes more sense.
  12. Super Bowl LII Field

    I’ve seen so many complaints when an NFL team debuts a new wordmark that they look so similar... wide spaced letters - falcons, Seahawks, Broncos, Dolphins. Extra kern please!! Well, here’s your answer. You have to think about application and where the wordmark is going to be used. For the same reason so many nba teams have a round or ball element because it has to work at centercourt. For years the eagles wordmark looked tiny in their end zone... with the drop shadow it’s just too tall to make the width work in an end zone. They fixed it in their home this year by enlarging the logo so the 3D effect is basically cut off I do wish the nfl field guys took that into account when sizing the patriots logo. They basically took the max height of each wordmark, but they should have done a better job of sizing them relative to each other. If they shrunk down the patriots logo to closer to the width of the eagles, then there would be some empty space above and below it but in an all-22 view it would work better.
  13. XFL Return, new logo

    Logowise its nice. Nice modern update of the original. The colors are more inviting and less aggressive than the old one. the strokes overlap in weird ways but it works for me. There's some technical issues with it .. like for example the navy outer stroke around XFL doesn't extend into the big X... you can see under and above the F there's no navy stroke there.. so that's a little weird. But this could be a placeholder anyway
  14. ah ok -- hey they did something.it was an emergency situation.
  15. In terms of modern times., some of the London games have done this. Before you say that’s a neutral site, it’s a little interesting because sometimes they’ll go home team logo at 50 yard line but still give visiting team one end zone. So they do consider it a home game for one team. Off top of my head Rams had that in 2016. The jets and giants do this for their preseason game against each other. The whole stadium will be turned over to the home team- ring of honor, wrap etc. but “road” team gets one end zone. The other one I know is the saints at giants stadium after Katrina. They tried to make it as much like a saints home game as possible so they gave them the end zones (I think both).
