    Philadelphia Phillies Unveil New Primary Logo

    Why I don't like it. 1. Navy blue. 2. The bell looks too tall and clunky when standing on its own. 3. The wordmark looks unbalanced when not contained within a shape because the capital P is so much bigger than the lower case s . . . particularly because the hook (?) on the left side of the P makes it so wide.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 12

    This. A thousand times this . . . though I can live with the Cleveland wordmark if necessary.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 12

    This. A thousand times this. . . . plus get rid of the boat/sail imitation on the current sleeve stripe and make it a straight stripe.
  4. . . . . and yet the Browns wore brown jerseys in the preseason in several of those years. Also, in 1972, they wound up wearing brown against the Dolphins in the playoffs after wearing white in every regular season game. Gridiron Uniform Database says the Cowboys wore blue in Week 12 in 1972, but it could be wrong because it shows a color-on-color matchup. http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/GUD/controller/controller.php?action=single-weekly&game_id=1972_DAL-SLC^12

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    Of the ones posted so far, I put Orlando and Memphis at No. 1 and 2. I really like the Orlando uniform (at least based on what we can see so far . . . keeping in mind that the orange insert/side panel on the jersey might turn out to be a little much when it is more visible).
  6. If liking the Boston (and New Orleans and Portland) Breakers uniform is wrong, I don't want to be right. Also, I remember the Colts with silver pants. They were introduced just before they left Baltimore, along with silver middle stripes on the shoulder loops and pants (which were barely visible) .

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Lord help me, I'm actually kind of interested in the AAF QB draft. Maybe I'm just intrigued by the format. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/alliance-of-american-football-2019-qb-draft-how-to-watch-stream-eligible-qbs-draft-rules/

    Same Surname, Same Number, Different Sport

    Someone do a quick search for Smith, Jones and Johnson.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    This is an excellent point and may figure into the thinking of the AAF hierarchy. That said, I have no idea who Nate Perelman is, so this shouldn't be an issue with him . . . whoever he is. ?

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    That looks awfully red.

    Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

    Looks a bit like this . . . just on the opposite wing flap.

    Heavy Seas Beer Co. New Logo

    Old: New: I never really liked the old logo, as it always looked a little clipartish to me (if I may make up a word). However, the new one may be even worse. I get that they're going for simplicity, but it overshoots the mark. About the only it has going for it is that it's black and purple, which is always a nice selling point in Baltimore.

    New Logo for Regal Cinema

    I agree with both of the bolded parts. That said, I see this is a slight upgrade. As simple as it is, I like the font. In particular, I really like the way in looks in the vertical orientation. I have no idea how many of their theaters have a location allowing for that usage (I'm not even sure if my local Regal does). However, I think that looks really sharp. Maybe in locations where there is not a wall like the one in the picture, they can use old school vertical theater-style signage.

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    Fair enough. I guess the bottom line is that there are really no truly good alternatives available.

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    I know the issue is not the size. If the locker rooms are an issue (and they may be one of many), there must be a solution that would work for 10 games. To me, that seems like a relatively cost effective solution as compared to finding a one year home in a city with no long term interest in the team.

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    I picture the league relenting and letting them play at Sam Boyd Stadium. It's not as modern as the StubHub Center, but it holds at least 5,000 more fans and is in their eventual home city. The only two options that seem plausible are an available site in the Bay Area (since it can be sold as not really being a "move") or Sam Boyd Stadium. Playing anywhere else for a year would look a lot like the Oilers playing in Memphis . . . which went so well that they left for Nashville a year early.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    I always thought that too. You can't convince that the helmet logo and stripe aren't red. I had no idea what people were talking about when they started referring to the 1977 defense as the "Orange Crush". This picture is from the 1977 AFC Championship Game. I believe Colorwerx (or whatever his name is now) confirmed that the orange was lightened later.
  19. They've used "Nevermore" in the past, if memory serves me.
  20. They have been using it in most of their social media material this season. I'm not sure why. Website banner (and, yes, the slogan is pretty bad) --
  21. And now from the Ravens Facebook page, in case further confirmation was needed . . . https://www.facebook.com/baltimoreravens/photos/a.429037126228/10156003115066229/?type=3&theater I wasn't able to post the picture directly. Possible user error.
  22. The Ravens don't usually post their weekly Gameday summary until the beginning of each week, so it should be current/accurate.
  23. The Ravens website says black jerseys. https://www.baltimoreravens.com/game-day/
