    Ottawa Senators Redesign

    The red jersey is perfect. I'm super impressed how much the white with the laurels works, and how I've never seen it before. The white loses me. Too much red, the balance is off. Make more of that black, and you have a winner. For the third...I think the black stripe in the middle has to be equal in size to the other two stripes, or pinstripe thin. But the red...the red is really impressive.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    It wasn't people who were into hockey, but people who used it to mock and hate on hockey, there is a distinct difference. I really don't bother with needing "Pittsburgh gold" versus any other name, most of it is useless verbiage put out by the manufacturers. Unless it's a distinction like, athletic gold versus vegas gold, why bother getting into an argument over that? So many of the colors end up identical in the fabric now anyway.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    I was at the NHL store in New York City just the other day, and I asked about it, and the employee there said I was about the 50th one that day. I have friends who were very excited until they realized it was black, that took some wind out of the sails, but yeah, people want this, and I totally think it's nostalgia for that logo (and the times it evokes) and nothing more.

    Ducks Go Mighty Retro for New Third Jersey

    WOW...how long ago was that? I'm trying to think the last time I was actively on here. And the irony of being a snob over names of colors while accusing others of being dismissive and gatekeeping is THICK. If you're that hurt over calling it purple and green, and enough to tag me in it, then I feel absolutely justified in lobbing shots at you in your ivory tower of color naming specifics. I stand by everything I've said, and all love for this third is nostalgia-only, because top to bottom, this jersey is a mess.

    New Nike WNBA jerseys

    So why would ANYONE buy one of these jerseys now? By advertising to the point where there isn't even a team logo, they have to be hurting jersey sales - unless they were already so tiny that the teams don't care.

    NHL 2017-18

    It might look better, but those three stripes, despite technically being a manufacturer's mark, are part of the look of the jersey. For the first time that I know of, we have a visible difference in appearance between replica and authentic, not just a difference in quality. That's a dangerous precedent set.

    Buffalo is going to blow it, again. So close and yet so far with every unveiling. Do a white version of the old 40th anniversary jerseys, keeping the blue between the gold stripes. Blue shoulders? fine. Buffalo script with the colors inverted or MAYBE that new leaping Buffalo logo, and be done with it. I'm already disappointed.

    I agree. Red jersey, introduction of silver, light-colored O, it's too Ohio State-looking. Their team could wear that tomorrow and there would be few questions. ...and I LIKE the O. Canadiens had a chance to diagonal stripe and be interesting. They blew it. Silver additions to the 100th jersey look like crap...again.

    New Series - Redoing the NHL

    PERFECT Arizona, except the logo. Switch it to something else, something stronger, and that's a 10/10. Buffalo, I'd take the blue jersey and make the white stripes gold. The Sabres love running with a two-color look. These are awesome. Keep it up.

    I think I'm the only person here who legitimately hates the Jackets' new socks. They're too minimalist, it isn't going to show up on tv, and I don't really care that they match.

    Binghamton Devils New Look

    The secondary logo is good. it would be a better primary than what they have, and it would be a pretty weak primary. This will make all sorts of "worst of" lists in a decade or less.

    Columbus Blue Jackets Concept - 3rd Option Posted

    Make the hemline stripe thicker, at least as thick as each red stripe on the sleeve, and put a full collar on the white. The alt needs to be cannon-centric to make it different enough to be worth doing. Otherwise, i love it.

    Spirits of St. Louis Reboot

    Try round it out first. See if that fixes it. The perspective on a third propeller while still keeping that bottom view of the basketball is going to be a nightmare. Plus, you could do a uniform with that long horizontal logo above the numbers instead of a wordmark, and it would look great. I think a two-propeller thing is a much better, much more vintage design. Let's see what can be done to un-snitch this first.

    Spirits of St. Louis Reboot

    You know, idk that the wings mistake is a problem. Because you're right, they DO look like wings. I think I thought the same thing initially. I don't know that it's a bad thing to think that, though. The Spirit of St Louis was a plane, the first thought of a fan might be a plane, it's a flying basketball, the idea works either way. It could be one of those "hidden features of logos" that say things we all know that blow away random people (There's an H in the Whalers logo. Whaaaa? The Brewers' old logo makes a glove with an m and b. WHOA! The Spirits of St. Louis logo is a propeller, not a plane. MIND BLOWING! ya know?) Because to do it fully correctly, the ball would have to be far smaller, and you lose the detail there. A third spoke would make the logo fill more vertical space, but it would not be accurate, and that could screw up the forced perspective where you see the St. Louis Arch on the ball. It's possible that there are some design issues, the little reflection on the right blade where it meets the ball looks like an error, idk if the lines line up as well as they should at the top, idk if the angles are correct on the blade - it looks alright, but the more you look, the more I want to compare lines. Hopefully with enough bumps, someone who knows design really well can nitpick this to perfection. But I think the logo looks very stoic, corporate-esque (and I mean that in a positive way), and on par with the NBA logos. It fits. It's super simple and effective and has all sorts of layers while looking simple. A logo this simple, stoic, and hard needs to be balanced with a more whimsical secondary, and if you're working on that, carry on. I think you've got an excellent start.
