  1. The current set can't hold a candle to the '90s set, and despite a bit too much gray, the 2000s uniforms aren't bad. My biggest beef with the current uniforms is that they are way too dark over all. The overemphasis on black (to the point of removing purple from the team's logo) is just the beginning. The Suns used to have vibrant shades of purple, but the new shade is, as I mentioned, too dark. It seems as if they begrudgingly said the the fans, "Ok, fine, we'll bring purple back, but it's going to be the blackest purple possible." As for the rankings, I agree with both Buffalo and OnWise97 on different points: 1. Classic, but dull (and I hope we don't see any fauxbacks) 2. Solid 90s coolness (not that all teams 90s unis were cool -- most were really bad) 3. Yep. Underrated, and too much gray, but somehow manages to be a decent set 4. Ugly, ugly, ugly. Wouldn't buy any current merchandise. On a side note, the PHX alt logo has always been a good idea, but I do wish they'd drop the "PHX" and replace it with "SUNS".
  2. Here's an interesting article about the development of the Suns' '90s uniforms: http://www.sports360az.com/2016/07/espo-brief-suns-sunburst-jersey-oral-history/ The concept uni would have been a bit much, but the mock up of an orange alternate is something I've wanted to see for a long time.
  3. I like the one on the left -- the wings round out the logo. I also think the larger lightning bolt looks good. The shield reminds me of Nashville's guitar pick logo, so it would be fine if they were the Nashville Thunderbirds (or the Preds' farm team). By the way, despite my flippant "pigeon" comparison on the previous page, please do accept my congratulations. It's great that you've had your work picked up by a pro team, and my comment was just an "internet opinion". I do have a more thoughtful observation in response to your earlier question: Yes the logo is "angry" and it is a bird, but I think, perhaps, that comparison is based more so on the color/white underbelly combination, which is common to many of the Angry Birds characters. Anyway, just two of my unprofessional cents. Congrats again, and thanks for coming on here, putting up with the full range of comments posted on your work, and for being willing to converse!
  4. Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought "pigeons".
  5. I like "Scorpions" as a mascot, but the logo looks too much like clip art, in my opinion: scorpion
  6. The Hokkaido prefectural flag features a seven-pointed star, so the logo is probably related to that. The flag is navy, red, and white, so the team colors match too.
  7. Watching the Wings and Avs, this is all I could see:
  8. While true for a few seasons, that's not really the case. Hossa's in his seventh season with Chicago and has won three Cups with them. He's a Blackhawk.
  9. Before posting here, I looked at a larger, clearer version of the same picture on a different site, and the feathers are definitely white. nopeOkay, what pictures are you guys looking at? the Instagram picture on the previous page. Not 100% clear, but obviously not red feathers with white outlines: Look at the full jersey picture a page back. The logo on the shoulder is the normal logo, the one on the locker nameplate is the reversed.Jersey is meh to me, but absolutely love the logo. My stance on the Wings is they've only had a couple jersey designs in their history, and most of it is what they've been wearing for the past 60 years. What do you expect them to do? Throw back to the same thing every time? They should come out with a slightly more modern look for a special event like this. Hell, have an alternate to change things up. Yeah. I know the logo on the previous page is the regular logo and the locker nameplate is reserved. I'm not talking about that pic. Look at the one above. The wheel is not reversed (e.g. red bottom edge); the wing looks like it is (e.g.the three triangular feathers right in the middle of the logo, among others). Maybe it's some major blurring, but turning red to white seems difficult due to bluring. Anyway, it's all moot now. For a one-off, the jersey looks ok.

  12. Has anyone seen/done a silver recolor of the Sens logo? It might work, and it would be a great nod to the Silver Seven. I think the only downside would be that the Hurricanes are already red, black, and silver.
  13. The Wings logo on the shoulder is new. The current logo has red feathers with white outlines and the top of the wheel is white, as are the upper edges of the wings. The inverted version (white feathers, red outlines, red-topped wheel, red-edged wings) was retired in the early 80s. Take a close look at the stadium series version. It has white feathers with red outlines, but retains the white-topped wheel and white wing edges of the current logo. Interesting. As for the Sens, this would be perfect:
  14. If the Avs insist on the Rockies-esque "C" logo, what would it look like as the captain's "C" (like the Flames' approach with the Atlanta "A" for the alternate captains)?
