    "Bad Design" that actually works

    I don't mind the occasional phantom yoke. It looked all right on the Hurricanes' Edge uniforms IMO.

    Let's help the AAF

    I might go with Tourists, though that might be stepping on the toes of the Minor League Asheville Tourists. Otherwise, I'd be inclined to go with something loosely based on the theme parks, along the lines of Magic or something midieval. The only thing relating to magic coming to my mind is Wizards, but I'd want to generally avoid a name not being used by a rival NBA team (though Rockets does have a lot of potential for a football team). Merlins, maybe? Monarchs, perhaps? Dragons? We could use another mythical creature or two in pro sports IMO. Aside from anything park-related, I do like resurrecting the Thunder name (and uniforms) or something like Lightning, or even use the now-defunct (I believe) Storm moniker (albeit in Tampa Bay) of the Arena Football League. But I'll toss my hat in the ring with the other 7 cities. There is some overlap in suggestions for names between cities, as well as bringing back defunct names that have generally been used in a given city. Also, cities where the state name can be used as the team's locale are in parentheses. Atlanta: Fire, Thrashers, Copperheads, Flames, Blaze Memphis: Pharaohs, Hounds, Showboats Phoenix (Arizona): Firebirds, Owls, Roadrunners, Chupacabras San Diego: Destroyers, Conquistadors, Mauraders, Admirals, Rockets, Breakers Birmingham (Alabama): Vulcans, Iron, Stars San Antonio: Renegades, Javalinas, Hogs, Armadillos, Chupacabras, Scorpions Salt Lake City (Utah): Stingers, Stags, Stars, Blaze, 47s, Pioneers, Yeti(s), Yellowjackets, Raptors
  3. Does this mean that, if the Colorado Springs Pioneer League team becomes the Rocky Mountain Oysters, that their ballpark becomes known as the "Scrotium" or just the "Ballsack?" If so, you heard it here first.

    San Diego Padres focus-grouping new uniforms for 2020

    It's probably my favorite dark color, personally. I would also love to get my hands on a Hershey Bears jersey.
  5. It's good, but I would replace either one of the logos with the duck holding a branch logos with something different. Maybe a duck's foot? Then again, a duck's foot in the third logo from the left wouldn't look too bad, either. Either that, or at least give the duck a different expression to use in another logo or two.

    Sierra Mist? Mist Twst?

    And with Mountain Dew trying to stake a claim in the lemon/lime soda market, things have come full circle:
  7. Why not just go with Halloween colors full time? The team's name is "Bats," after all. They can go back to Black and Purple, and possibly add Orange trim. Don't get me wrong, the logos are great, but the current colors are a little less than inspiring.
  8. I would go with Vulcans for Io, given that it ties in with both the mining industry and Io's volcanic environment. Colors: Red, Creamsicle Orange, and Graphite Gray. Uranus (or Ursula) would go with either Stars (Uranus) or (Ursula) Majors, playing off the constellation. Colors: Teal, Black, and (Metallic) Gold. If the Neptune team is placed on Triton, I'd go with Retros, owing to the fact that Triton orbits Neptune in a clockwise (retrograde) fashion. Colors would be Purple and Teal, as in 1990s retro. If we get Neptune proper instead of Triton, I'd go with Mariners, going with the colors Blue and either Yellow or Neon Green and Northwest Green (AKA the Seattle Mariners' teal) trim. As for Pluto, I'd go with Brawlers as a team name. Colors: Maroon, Indigo, and Light Blue. In short, you could do something along the lines of the current Mariners or Jacksonville Jaguars' colors for Uranus (or Ursula) with some gold thrown in and the old Mariners' colors for Neptune proper (possibly with some green/teal thrown in, or just go with Blue/Green like the Seattle Seahwaks' old colors). I still like the idea of the Triton Retros donning Purple and Teal (retro in a 1990s way) should they land the team. Pluto could be like the Maroon/Light Blue Phillies (as the Brawlers name could fit with those colors).

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    If finding out who gets to get crushed in the NBA Finals is fun, then yeah, sure, it's fun. This has to be the tipping point that gets the NBA to a pure 1-16 playoff seeding, right?

    NFL 2018 changes

    Only problem with it is that there's not enough color (all-black primaries) or flare (no gold except on the helmet logo).

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    True. I'll give you that. It's just funny how both teams have taken some elements of each other's designs over the years.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    The logo set is really growing on me. It's easily the best part of this logo set. The skyline logo is the best logo of the bunch and a great callback to their 1980s look. That said, that roundel looks awfully familiar: Of course, you can't do a lot with a roundel. (On the flip side, it might be a good idea for the Jazz to drop their roundel and go with a team-colored version of their state-outline logo. Much of the same can be said of just about every NBA roundel, though.) The two biggest things about the jerseys for me are (A) The color balance, and, related to it, (B) The armhole/collar striping, or lack thereof. The road Icon uniform has the best color balance out of all 3 jerseys, but that awesome dark red is virtually nonexistent. I feel that making the mountains on the shorts dark red would go a long way to bring out all the Nuggets' team colors while being an awesome reference to Denver's awesome city flag. The armhole/collar striping on the road Icon uniform should also be either dark red or gold. Red mountains on the shorts mountains, along with more gold in general (between the beltline tripes on the shorts, perhaps?), would also help out the color balance of the home Association and Statement uniforms. I'd also put the city skyline logo on the buckle of all jerseys and probably go with one shade of blue (I'd go with the dark royal) for the base color for both the road Icon and Statement uniforms, but I'd be more inclined to go with a gold Statement jersey. *Clears throat*

    IHOP Name Change Coming 6/11

    Burgers, huh? I know another place that their logo reminds me of: IHOPB better hope that a lawsuit "b" not coming...

    Terrible names, amazing uniforms

    Unpopular opinion alert: The biggest issue with the Vegas Golden Knights' name isn't the adjective "Golden," it's the slangy city name. As has been discussed at length before, "Vegas" comes across as too gimmicky, too minor-league. "Las Vegas Knights" or even "Las Vegas Golden Knights" (while a mouthful) sounds much better and much more professional. We've had an NHL team with Golden in their name before and I'm actually kinda OK with seeing that descriptor return. They picked the best adjective by far, even though I'd say that going with just "Knights" would work far better. I will also say "Silver Knights" wouldn't sound too bad, either, given that Nevada is the Silver State, though they would risk looking too much like the LA Kings. "Black Knights," as also explained, smacks of trying to be too Army-like, and don't get me started with "Desert Knights."
