  1. I echo Lights Out's sentiment. In a vacuum, I like these a lot, but something feels wrong about no birds on bat. Regarding the swinging bird logo, I like it save for one tiny detail. The way the bird's eye is drawn, it looks like he's looking backwards. That combined with the overall expression, it looks like the bird got frozen on a called third strike.

    Creamer Concept World Cup 2018 - FINALS VOTING

    Well, second place is nice. Congrats @gswansea! That concept of yours is mighty fine! I knew the first time I saw it that it was the winner. In the third place game, gotta go with Morocco.

    Lansing Lugnuts let fans choose new name for one game

    So, the article on the main site did a really bad job explaining just what the promotion actually is. The Lugnuts are doing a Backyard Baseball themed night. Backyard Baseball for those who aren't initiated, was a (fantastic) children's sports video game from the 90s (based on the comments, a lot of people aren't familiar). One of the main features was that you selected your team's name from two lists, one of descriptors and one of mascots. Those are the name choices that are being selected here.

    Humongous Melonheads is the only truly valid name for a Backyard Baseball themed night

    Creamer Concept World Cup 2018 - PLEASE SUBMIT

    At the very least, a 10% reduction seems extremely low. Just based on the voting from the last World Cup, a 10% reduction would at most reduce a team’s score by 18 points (which was the absolute highest total). Literally only one group had scores close enough to have that penalty make an impact on the advancement. At the lower scores, it’ll be extremely unlikely that the penalty will make any difference

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Pistons WERE founded before the NBA began. They were an NBL franchise in 1941. Sacramento's is especially annoying since it's by far the oldest team in the NBA. They've been around in some form since 1923. It baffles me they don't want to make that a bigger part of their identity.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    There's a certain type of NBA fan that is the equivalent of soccer fans using this exact argument. There's this weird pretentious thing where the sport is "so beautiful and pure," and that "anyone can win any game." Yet, whenever the fact that the same three teams win the championship every damn year is brought up, it's "Well, yeah. They're the best team! They're SUPPOSED to win the championship," which is usually followed by insulting the other sport (almost always football in the soccer context). I'm a basketball fan, and I like watching, but "NBA people" are so damn frustrating to deal with.
  10. Vegas fans booed Bettman! You've officially earned your place in the club, Knights fans! It only gets more miserable from here. Welcome aboard!

Here are some off the top of my head: Cape Elizabeth Capers Westbrook Blue Blazes Morse Shipbuilders Edward Little Red Eddies South Portland Red Riots Orono Red Riots Houlton Shiretowners Camden Hills Windjammers Falmouth Yachstmen Brewer Witches

    New Amarillo baseball team announces name finalists

    I literally only read the names list and knew that Brandiose was doing the design. That damn company is too clever (clever is the wrong word here, I just don't have a better one) for its own good. Eventually everyone's gonna get sick of it, backlash against them and their whole style will be spectacular.

    2018 NBA Post Season

    Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier, and Marcus Smart shot a combined 7 of 41. Rozier took 4 shots in the final two minutes. Completely selfish basketball. :censored: the NBA

    Jaylen Brown's play is completely selfish tonight, and there's a real good chance it will come back to haunt the Celtics.
  18. Ah yes, the first rule of litigation. Juries are a complete craphsoot. I mean, I definitely disagree with the outcome, and I want to be surprised that this happened, but......

    2018 NBA Post Season

    This game falls entirely on a complete lack of defensive effort and out of control offense. The Cavs had more offensive rebounds than they did assists. Terrible effort securing rebounds, letting guys just drive at will, inability to hit foul shots, a sequence at one point where 4 straight layup attempts got blocked, 13 turnovers. If the Celtics literally do any of these things right they probably win. Cavs in 7

    Report: Nike to Take Over MLB Uniforms in 2020

    The NHL has had a single relocation in the past 20 years, the NBA has had three. Any of the other new locations have been through expansion, which I wouldn't call instability. Every league constantly has teams threatening to move, so that evens out.

    Canadian Premier League

    I completely agree, especially since the shape of the bridge tower would fit perfectly into a vertically oriented version. Something along these lines could work pretty well.

    Houston Astros Logo Concept

    Recently, while working on a different, abandoned idea, I developed the framework for a logo that I felt had some legs as an Astros concept. I've never really been a huge fan of the Astros logos in the past, and figured this had a little bit more character than the current H-Star. The explanation here will be very straightforward. The basic idea was to combine the letter A and a star into the same shape. The "gut" of the star, where the A is formed also forms the pentagon shape that represents home plate, an underused, but certainly recognizable feature of baseball. Like I said, pretty simple and straightforward. (I do realize there are some that find a logo with the mascot initial instead of the location initial sacrilege, but I really ain't one of them, so tough luck there.) Lemme know what you guys think!

    Northeastern University Under Armour Rebrand

    Probably/Possibly. I actually designed these logos a few weeks back, and just posted them recently. I've run into a major time crunch for the next two months or so, and won't have much time to work on concepts. I definitely would like to have some hockey uniforms designed, and already have the idea down. If they do come, they won't be for a little while. I actually did make a version of the N logo that was a little bit thinner for wordmark and nameplate purposes but lost it in an inkscape crash. Once I have the time and energy to make another undertaking at the complete font package, I'll definitely take a look at the changes to the N to make it a bit more legible. In regard to the designer thing, I actually agree with you that top 50-60 is a pretty accurate group for me to be a part of, haha. When I said top tier, I was more referring to like top 10-15 guys who just have this mind blowing talent and seem to stop everything on the boards when they post. Not so much a dig at myself as it was more an acknowledgement of the incredible work others do around here. Thank you for the kind words though, they're definitely appreciated.
