    Chief Wahoo’s Last Season

    I love the script I, and while the block C is uninteresting, it's innocuous and inoffensive - in other words ideal for a team trying to gracefully work toward a rebrand. I hope beyond hope they roll with Spiders. That would be gnarly.

    2018 MLB Postseason: Team Twitter Emoji Hashtags

  3. Better team won. Cubs are misery to watch. Bryant in particular looked like he'd rather be anywhere else.

    2018 MLB Season

    Wasn't trying to wave a signal flag for pity, friend. I'm well aware of how good the Cubs situation is in comparison to others. Just kinda throwing my two cents out there since I don't really talk sports on this forum much anymore.

    2018 MLB Season

    It's been very disenchanting watching the Cubs slowly decline into a kinda-fun-kinda-good-but-can't-win-when-it-matters team. The culmination of things that led to the 2016 title was worth it all, and it's difficult to complain about rooting for a team that is always competitive and in the hunt. That said, whatever magic made 2016 happen has been voided in subsequent seasons thanks to crappy decision making from Maddon and Theo. Losing Travis Wood and counting on Mike Montgomery to be your sole long-relief option. Banking on a closer with a history of injuries to give you a full season. Ponying up the cash for a crumbling, wonky Darvish instead of retaining the devil you knew in Arrieta. Abandoning the "develop hitters and swap for pitching" plan and simply hope to god the team doesn't crawl into themselves; a habit they have never seemed to shake. Stupid bullpen moves. Injuries. Regressing talent. Lack of discipline. Declining defense. The Chatwood signing. 2018/19 offseason will be a crucial one. I don't foresee the Cubs winning the wild card and I don't imagine they'd win more than a game in any series they'd end up in.

    Isles Officially Unveil New Third Jersey

    I've always felt like the Islanders have never had an identity, at least not one that was at all inspired or tangible. It feels a lot like the Houston Texans, in that it's not a BAD name or identity or whatever, but it's all empty-feeling. Thirds like this and the all-black a while back simply echo my thoughts on this odd franchise.

    I like it. Colorful, fun, simple. Has personality.

    Dunkin' Donuts,err wait just Dunkin'

    "America runs on Dunkin" is their famous slogan, so it's basically doubling down on people's familiarity with that.
  9. I was kidding. I merely have no faith in the Padres to do anything right.
  10. The logos/colors/etc are fine. There's design-wise nothing really objectionable, aside from the same designer/design firm doing every look. The major problem for me is that they all feel collectively devoid of history (because they are), so there's no sense of disparity between a timeless look, a vintage look, a retro look, and various shades of modern looks. It's all just kinda "Custom Madden Team" feeling.

    puts two capital Ws on top of one another "That'll be $150,000 please."

    Dunkin' Donuts,err wait just Dunkin'

    They'll bring the donuts part back in 4 or 5 years when they rebrand. That said, the interim will be one of those silly, "no no no---we're only dunkin, now! Haha, yes you can still buy donuts. Ma'am I am the manager. No I can't explain this, heh. Please stop asking me about this" type things.

    Where's all the random flags? Where's the piping? Where's the BFBS? Garbage.

    That's not even remotely close to brown. That's like a faint reminder of brown. The other issue is that they're still using the obnoxiously dark shade of orange, and obviously the lack of white everywhere but the helmet is terrible. There's nothing really to critique beyond "they're better than the terrible trash Nike made." I'd be interested in seeing these paired with white/orange pants this season, however.

    Are these brown or black? If they're black...why?

    NFL REDESIGN (Bills 10/16)

    These are marvelous, but feedback: ---------- BENGALS Good: love the numeral fonts love the logo love the script Meh: I'd just go with a white and striped helmet with traces or orange or an orange facemask the script wordmark needs a little bit more "finishing," but it's almost there ---------- VIKINGS Good: logo is fantastic wordmark hits the mark Meh: I feel the darkening of the purple is a negative, but that's my two cents ---------- RAVENS Good: Font choice is solid the BR interlocking logo is close to being great Meh: I felt personally the design elements were way too modern (gradients, no, no) design overall felt too gloomy (which makes sense, but still) ---------- The Giants, Jets, Bucs, and Lions are essentially pristine. I wouldn't change anything. Only thing I didn't like about the Chiefs logo is the yellow bottom of the arrowhead.

    Buffalo Wild Wings new look

    Better but still mostly crap.

    I think elements of this design will translate well in a few years when they inevitably rebrand again, but as for now they are indeed a kludge.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Those are two goddamn football uniforms right there. My goodness. Fantastic.

    Unused Logos and Uniforms

    I dig. I will always insist the White Sox are walking the tightrope between good and bad design; I just wish they'd fall over in one direction or the other, because the elements for each outcome are present.

    Chief Wahoo’s Last Season

    Hell yeah. Spiders would be a kickass team name/identity as long as you do it right.

    2018 NFL Season

    Since 2012, in games vs. the Bears that Rodgers has finished, he's done a lot of damage: 30 touchdowns to only 4 interceptions, averages 253 yards per game, and a 115.3 average passer rating. Since 2012, in the 8 contest the Packers put up at least 24 points against the Bears, Randall Cobb has been the bane of the Bears existence: 42 catches for 559 yards and 9 touchdowns. Obviously these numbers are a bit off considering this was during the prime of Rodgers' career against a dead/rebuilding franchise, but it's still mind-boggling. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers exist solely to deposit gallons of salty piss down the throats of millions of Bears fans and it shows that the only way the Bears can win is if Rodgers is either too hurt to finish or start a game. Yet they give him ~5 seconds to complete passes in 4th quarter comeback situations, namely because the offense decided to run cutesy backfield passes on 3rd & short time and time again when Jordan Howard was averaging 5 yards a carry against a pretty tired Packers defense. Nagy and Trubisky have a lot to learn from last night, and next week against the Seahawks won't be a picnic. Very easily could be down 0-2, and if the Bucs keep scoring like they do, 0-3. I hate being a Bears fan, but I'm stuck.
