  1. Recently, after viewing mcrosby's excellent MLS redesign project, I realized I hadn't done any soccer concepts in awhile. So, I decided to get back into the game with some redesigns of some European teams, particularly focusing on smaller/lower level clubs across the continent. For the first team, I present 1.FC Koln And the original for reference: The main elements of the design include: The modernized goat, moved from a leaning position next to the badge to a leaping position inside the badge. The towers of the Cologne Cathedral are now represented in the goat's horns. Behind the goat, the sash design is replaced with four stripes stylized to create a K.
  2. Hey guys, thanks for the comments! In regards to the horns, the cathedral inspiration was definitely meant to be very subtle, more of an easter egg than anything. While this series won't necessarily have daily entries, I've got another one for you guys. My next team is Blackpool United out of England's Third Tier, League One. Blackpool's ineptitude since the 1950s makes the Cleveland Browns look like the Soviet Union National Hockey team from 1961-1979. The main goal here was simplification, simplification, simplification. Blackpool's current crest is almost identical to the city coat of arms. However, the shield on the current crest has the foundation to create a strong crest. In order to do this I: - Removed almost all detail outside the shield. - Modernized the seagull so as to not look like a blob. - Moved the slogan "Progress" from the banner below to the top of the shield. The original for reference:

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Fun/Horrifying Fact: The Patriots' roster featured more players from Rutgers, all in the secondary, than any other college.

    You mean 2003 New England Patriots Quarterback and Super Bowl Champion Kliff Kingsbury???

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    One of the most important lessons I've learned from this site is that the term "It's close" means absolutely nothing when it comes to the general population (see, not uniform nerds). The number of times I've heard that phrase referring to things that are completely different is staggering.

    infrared41's Numerical Super Bowl Trivia

    Yeah. Honestly, I agree with your earlier assessment that adding the Super Bowl back into it makes it a bit too easy. I just think the first one you went with without the Super Bowl was itself a really tough string of events to figure out. I'd love to see some that maybe aren't linked to a single super bowl or play, but are thematically related.

    Super Bowl XII, #12 Roger Staubach pitches to #44 Robert Newhouse, who throws a pass to #83 Golden Richards for a touchdown (7 points after XP), making the score 27-10.

    Woah, man! Put some oven mitts on, you're liable to burn yourself on a take that hot! Seriously, Spygate was literally the Patriots filming another team's signals in the wrong place on the field. Filming signals itself isn't illegal, everyone does it, they just did it in an illegal spot. If it were any other team in any sport, nobody would have cared. Case in point, the Astros had personnel sneak into the tunnels behind opposing teams dugouts and film them during games. This happened this year and nobody discusses it.

    I think the NFL should do a modified College OT. Have each team start at their own 40 yard line and play it out like college would. No clock, no quarters. You go until one team outscores the other. This would force offenses to gain at least 20 to try a 57 yard field goal while guaranteeing both teams a shot with the ball.

    That was the exact reaction we all had in the MLB Playoffs thread.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    The Chiefs had PLENTY of BS go in their favor. This isn't the refs being on the take, this is refereeing in the NFL being fundamentally broken to its absolute rotten core, and today was the absolute worst day of refereeing I can ever remember. The Saints-Rams was so blatantly bad, I was legitimately angry that the Rams won, and I was rooting for them until that point. Patriots-Chiefs was a master class in just making calls to bump the score up to fit the narratives. It will never get better until some real changes are made and the refs are actually held accountable, because it's honestly ruining the overall game.

    Agreed. And no matter how this season ends I think Edelman has to go. He's become a liability. Tons of drops this year, tons of stupid penalties, generally making stupid plays.

    Yep. Belichick choked it with that play call.

    He's 7th round rookie. Insanely athletic, no other skills.

    If the Patriots lose it'll be because Keion Crossen is somehow on an NFL roster. Edit: Add JC Jackson to that list.

    Mexican College Rebrands

    So, I like the separate parts of the logo. However, you've got some serious perspective issues going on, which makes the back half the logo appear to be in profile view while the muzzle area is in a 3/4 view. I think this is caused in two places: First, looking at a 3/4 view of a lynx, as you have here with the muzzle area, you would be able to see the opposite side of the Lynx's face. The second issue I see is where the jaw meets the neck. In your logo, they meet at a clean edge, which would work perfectly for a side-view. I'd suggest making the neck a little bit thicker, and extending the line of the jaw beyond the neck in the same way the bottom of the ear does witg the back of the head. Overall, you're very close to absolutely nailing this one.
  18. Yeah, this is real nice. Monochrome is weird for me. I love this, I love Clemson's orange, and pretty much nothing else. Regarding the helmet inconsistency as discussed above, I actually used to hate it, and eventually just stopped caring. Some inconsistency isn't the end of the world.

    "Desecrating" the NFL

    Thanks for the reply, I’m really glad you like what you see. I actually do agree with you on the numbers on the Titans jerseys looking back. They do seem a bit “puffy” to me. Regarding the Chiefs, the drop shadow might actually be my favorite part. So, while I completely understand where you’re coming from, that likely won’t be changing. In regards to the thread disappearing? A combination of hitting a creative wall and life happening. I’ve been working on designs and soon I should have enough where I’m ready to post most of the rest in pretty rapid succession. Is it it better or worse that I was well aware at the time I was creating the equuaslug? Worse, I imagine. Thanks for the comment! Those three are actually my favorite three designs I’ve done so far, so I’m really happy to see that they’re being received so well.

    "Desecrating" the NFL

    Hey all! I've been wanting to do a series regarding the NFL that was a no-rules free for all where team history doesn't matter, and everything is brand new. So instead I decided on the current series, based upon the idea above, but with a few rules. THE RULES 1. The uniform must be brand new. The design may never have been worn previously by the franchise. 2. A team's uniform must be "drastically different." i.e. Obviously different to the average person on this site. 3. Elements may be taken from current or former uniforms, and may be mixed and matched, so long as a new uniform is created. 4. Logos may remain the same. This is mostly a uniform project. With that being said, get ready to see some of your favorite untouchable uniforms get touched a lot! First up, the New York Jets! Since the Jets are receiving a new design next year, it felt fitting to begin with them. For the Jets, I decided to follow the path well travelled, and create a double green look, to symbolize the two general eras of Jets football. The main feature of the uniform is the shoulder yoke/ucla stripe combination upon the shoulders. This combination pays homage to the current and Namath era looks while being unique in its own right. The away uniform features a double colored yoke, with the sleeves a dark green, and the shoulder area the kelly green color. The decision here was mostly for color balance, and because I simply liked the look better than a simple mirror of the home uniform. The helmet features an updates "JETS" plane logo featuring the new custom wordmark. In my mind when I think of jets, I think of the Nighthawk Stealth Bomber. Therefore, I wanted to take the angular look of those jets, and incorporate them into the lettering as well as the speeding jet in the helmet logo. Finally, the helmet, pants and socks all feature a Dark-White-Kelly-White-Dark color scheme.
  21. And so the most boring college football season I can remember watching comes to a close in extremely boring fashion.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    Yeah, I was pretty sure two of them were the same, but couldn't remember which two. Before going back to the NFL 2013 changes thread the only thing I specifically remembered was BradyIsMyHomeboy claiming I was a Nike spy. Seriously, people who weren't around for it, read the thread, it's an amazing hot mess.

    I am. I believe you're right. But it literally doesn't matter until the actual uniforms are released. Ignoring leaks and having patience is a much easier way to live. That was either a funny post or you need to learn that not everything is a slight. I honestly can't tell at this point. 2012-13 was a glorious time. SoundOfThrowingPennies, Cody21, BradyIsMyHomeboy, Cody21's two hundred personas to circumvent bans. That was the golden age.

    Literally every single claim in this post was discussed previously in this exact thread. So, there are two possibilities. 1) The reddit poster is Teal. 2) Some jackass on this site reads what we discuss posts it to reddit near verbatim. I've suspected that this was the case pretty much every time like this gets posted. Safest bet? Ignore it either way.
