    Florida Panthers to Celebrate 25 Years in 2018-19

    The tree/stick icon is so, so small. If it was just it and the 25 that'd be sufficient,

    NFL 2018 changes

  4. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-allows-sports-betting-across-country-n868956 The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada's monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits. The court struck down a federal law that required states to ban gambling on the outcome of sporting events. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was highly unusual: it did not ban sports gambling nationwide as a matter of federal law, but it said the states were not allowed to permit it.

    West Michigan Whitecaps to play as Beer City Bung Hammers

    Bung Hammers sucks but the branding is legitimately good! The stupid thing about the Pizza Rats is that they should've already done the full-on rebrand by now, what with the contest and such, but I guess there's legalities that held it up? That or maybe they chickened out and want this trial to push them over the edge.

    West Michigan Whitecaps to play as Beer City Bung Hammers

    I wish these teams would cease the gimmicky temporary nature and simply full-time rebrand. Bung Hammers, Creamies, Pizza Rats, etc - embrace it all 100% from top to bottom.

    Staten Island Yankees now the... Pizza Rats?!

    As a devout TMNT fan and appreciator of quality uniform/logo design, this is all wonderful.

    West Michigan Whitecaps to play as Beer City Bung Hammers

    Between the Creamies and the Bung Hammers, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw teams get temporary rebrands of "Hairy Banjos" and "Skin Flutes" here soon.

    Cyclones to play as Brooklyn Bagels

    The hat logo feels like a shame, as it's a lot of detail lost on a small space, but the overall look is wonderful. Minor League Sports + Food Branding = Perfection.

    New logo for me

  13. Pepsi simply needs to make up its mind. They pretty much own the blue can, but their current branding is acceptable...? but it's a major departure from the timeless portions of their brand. I think personally they should focus on this, as it has a vintage air and the "signature" style that says "we've been around a long-ass time, so we must be doing something right" as well as indicating a craftsmanship of sorts. That said, culturally they seem to have forgotten that their 80s/90s branding on the mostly-naked cans was huge. This look is absolutely flawless, but no blue is a problem of sorts. I dunno. Pepsi is one of the more controversial logo/branding companies in this board's history, and that doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Dull as hell. Bit of good stuff here and there, but forgettable as anything the NBA has known.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    Moderators removing my posts?! Of course they did. Bastard mods. Did you take your <mod redacted - inflammatory language> pills this morning, <redacted>?! Either way, y'all are cowards. Do you believe in freedom of SPEECH? I didn't think so....commie. There's no more justice in this world....not for the strong...

    Hurricanes to Unveil New Third Jersey for 2018-19

    Something about this post makes me feel both pride and a great, great shame.

    Fightin Phils play annual morning game as Reading Whoopies

    You know some old-timer in the Phils' branding department was like, "Why don't we do this promotion: 'The Reading Cream Pies!'" and the entire office all looks at each other awkwardly. Some close tabs on their laptops and phones. Others raise eyebrows of sudden interest.

    Terrible names, amazing uniforms

    Before I proceed, I'd like to share my two cents on the already-mentioned brands: "Magic" is a terrific name for the Orlando franchise. I'd say that based on their modern role as one of the NBA's many minor-league feeder, wasteland franchises, this falls into the "Irony" category, but "terrible?" Certainly not. "Wild" is admittedly kind of a dumb name, but as others have said the logo is brilliant. Would "Wilderness" have been any better? Or "Park Rangers" or some crap? I feel like Wild is marginally acceptable. Terrible, though...stretch. "Green Wave" is tough, as I always associate it with agriculture, farmland high schools and such. I'd qualify this as "amateur," but not terrible. I don't think the minor leagues should count, honestly. Their entire enterprise is coming up with weird, bizarre, cartoonish ideas, and in some strange way a lot of genuine high-quality creative output is the result. As far as the Big 4, I felt like the Raptors 2000s look was pretty great for its time, considering their brand was minor-league from the outset. Recouped some dignity and had a look that was for several years associated with some modicum of success.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    Ahhh. In that case, the universal draft hat logo template is garbage. My second point still stands.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    The honeycomb DEN logo is garbage. The skyline logo is overcooked.
  22. I've never liked when hockey teams go too much toward navy/black without a healthy dose of contrasting colorful compliments. The early 00's Oilers scheme is easily the most lifeless look I've seen perhaps ever.
