  1. I'm here for these changes to home/road designations and don't really care how jargon-y they want to make it. This is a change that really does make sense for the NBA. Of the four major leagues, a proliferation of options and a breakdown of white/home color/road designations works best. This is what the manufacturers do. They overdo it. I've got to give them credit for overdoing it in a way that kind of actually makes sense. A white NBA jersey does say "professional" to me. A colored one does say "iconic" to each team to me.
  2. My ideal Eagles uniform.
  3. This looks like an early draft of the ad. Things look drawn on, unfinished, etc. Must have been some technical glitch that sent it out. Definitely not ready for release.
  4. This is a good point. That photo I posted on the previous page which started this whole debate features an undershirt with the "DC" logo, and it all just seems to work together very well. You avoid really any doubling up or overlap. A uniform would have the interlocking DC on the hat, Washington or Nationals on the chest, and the full logo on the sleeve.
  5. The Nats really screwed up their brand. The curly-W overload is oh so generic, especially when the only kind of "alternate" they can come up with is basically a hard to see US flag-themed design. Bring it all back! The interlocking DC! The monumental aesthetic! The gold! The beautiful logo!
  6. From November of 2015, "Reagan and Dulles Unveil New Logo and Passenger Pledge." "This brand is more than just the color scheme and a logo. At its core an organization needs to stand for something; at Reagan National and Dulles International we choose to stand for our passengers,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Jerome L. Davis." I'm not able to find the old logos for either airport right now. In any case, I definitely noticed the change in the past year or two. It's a pretty notable move to use the same logo for both airports. Dulles, which is significantly farther away from downtown Washington, has actually begun to lose users since 2005. This seems like a move aimed at rebranding Dulles as more approachable and closer to the national capital. Dulles's entire scheme is very sleek and sterile. It very much feels like a "generic international airport" to me. I guess they'd rather it be seen as Washington D.C.'s international airport, rather than a general one located in Virginia. Can't find the old logos anywhere, but if I had to guess, Dulles's would be something silver and black or white. As a side note, Dulles has a gorgeous main building.
  7. With the Cardinals color rush, I think it would be ideal for eliminating white and going all out on the two tone red, especially with the numbers. Great work on some of these. Big fan of the Eagles. Really don't like that new Bucs logo though. Keep the flag red.
  8. Fantastic way of putting it!
  9. Here's what I've been able to find for a Colgate athletics logo from the past. Seems to exist on sportslogos.net, some custom neon sign website, and in grainy videos of the Andy Kerr stadium in the 1990s. Thanks so much!
  10. Perfect opportunity for color rush! All-aqua with the fauxback helmet. Because the players are LITERALLY dolphins on Thursday!
  11. I'm very disappointed my Caps didn't update their uniforms. I'll admit that I know very little about hockey aesthetics in comparison to the other major sports, but regardless of the origins of the "edge design" (whatever that means exactly) I understand piping and I'm not a fan. I've long thought the Capitals and Wizards were better suited in their blue/black/gold color schemes. They felt "presidential" rather than generically "American." Let's hope that sooner or later DC looks to update their look.
  12. I really like both leaks so far. The Blues looks very clean. The Predators already have exciting colors, an exciting name, and an exciting logo. Their uniform striping/piping can be simple/good and the team can feel exciting.
  13. How are you making these? They remind me quite a bit of a logo creation website I saw recently.
  14. Are you saying just "Washington" or are you including "Washington, D.C."? In either case, I think it's pretty common to hear "Washington" in reference to the U.S. capital. Anywhere in the greater metro region to be sure, but also mostly anywhere on the east coast I would imagine, and am pretty confident I've experienced, "Washington" naturally referring to the city between Maryland and Virginia throughout my life.
  15. That's a new one I haven't heard before. Being from Washington, D.C. I obviously hear both all the time, but I wouldn't say it's universal outside of the district. I see what you mean though, especially with just the word "Washington." Some friends I've made over the years from other parts of the country have told me that until they met me, they always thought the "Washington Redskins" was a team from the state of Washington. If we're talking about what the District of Columbia should be called, the place to start is obviously the voting rights travesty that is our lack of statehood. I'm in favor of Douglass or Potomac, although it's likely that when statehood eventually becomes a reality, the state formerly known as the Washington/Washington, D.C./District of Columbia/the District/D.C. will be known as the "State of Washington, D.C." with the "D.C" standing for the "Douglass Commonwealth.
