  1. GotPixels NFL Project 40 Plus- NFL2-Memphis Helmet Options

    It was merely a suggestion. I'm not saying it was awful or totally wrong, I was just raising a possibility. I've really enjoyed this project and wanted to give my input, so I'm sorry if it sounded like I was complaining or telling him to do something. Either way, it's a great concept and I'm just glad that he chose Hartford as a location.

    I would suggest a different name than Hurricanes for Hartford. As a CT resident, It's not that it's not relevant (because it is), it's just that people are still bitter about what happened with the Whalers. Assuming Hartford doesn't have an NHL team in 2025, I'm not sure if the Hurricanes name would sit well with possible Hartford fans. Regardless, it's still a beautiful concept. The color scheme is great and I absolutely love the jerseys.

    Better views of the new Spurs kits (also a clearer look at the sublimation on the away):
  4. Origin of our love for logos

    Back when I was younger, I would create my own sports leagues. It started when I was around 7 or 8, when I took the cardboard lid from a box (that I think originally had paper into it) and turned it into a hockey rink. I took a checker and used it as a puck, then would play a game by flicking the makeshift puck back and forth and kept score until one "team" reached three goals. I created a league out of this, and even made an olympic-style rink, with country flags made out of toothpicks and small, cut-out flags that I would also draw by hand (country flag designs were also something I really got into at a young age and still like now). I would later extend this into creating my own leagues in other sports, as well as my own sports (none of which probably would have worked, but hey, I was 8). I would always put a team in my hometown and call it the "Lightning", just because I thought the name was really cool - it's also where my username comes from. At one point, I even took another lid and made it into a field for paper football - the field was painted on and I made goalposts out of drinking straws that I painted yellow. It was one of my favorite things to do as a kid and it's what got me into sports logos.

    9,081 Probably would have gotten a better score if I hadn't accidentally clicked Finland on the first one. EDIT: 11,555. Much better.

  9. New Big Sky Conference logo / website

    It was a good idea in theory, but the perspective of it makes it look just terrible on a jersey. And this may be a bit small, but the perspective of the "Big Sky" text is angled differently than the "Conference" text, which is annoying me.

    Because nothing says "Ole Miss Rebels" quite like an anthropomorphic shark wearing a suit.

    Very comforting to see the Pats return to their old selves and trade down again. I was worried there for a second...

    FYP. It was a generalization. Obviously there are people who know Midwest St. I was making the point that they could've gotten this pick much later. No, they actually couldn't. Silatolu is actually a very good offensive lineman who was in the first round of multiple mock drafts.

    Yes, starts at 8 PM.
