    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    San Diego Armada would have been a great team name, but another proposed spring league Major League Football (MLFB) announced last year the Virginia Armada as one of their teams. The others being Alabama Airbourne, Arkansas Attack, Florida Fusion, Ohio Union, Oklahoma Nation, Oregon Crash, and Texas Independence. The MLFB has been trying to get started since 2014 and will probably play a single down, but I have to wonder if that could have been a reasoning behind going with San Diego Fleet.

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    I was thinking the same thing, I think the name and colors are perfect for a Utah based franchise. I'm a big fan of all of the logos and color schemes because they're no necessarily cliché choices (i.e. Arizona Hot Shots) and while the names are sort of odd (i.e. San Diego Fleet) I like that they're mostly original in pro football (exception being Express (LA -USFL) and Stallions (CFL-USA) I'm not sure most teams will draw comparisons to past teams in their respective markets and that's important.

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    On the Apollos' team shop they have a hat featuring the "O" without Apollo, the bow is a highlight of the O which I think is clever. The Birmingham Iron is my favorite of the bunch, went ahead and ordered a hoodie because I have zero self-control.
  4. I completely disagree with you on this one, I think the pink and brighter aqua scream Miami similar to the Heat's alternate uniform they're wearing this season. These scream South Beach. They scream Don Johnson in loafers without socks. They just feel oh so right.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    These uniforms looks like the angsty teenage kid of the 90's gold uniforms and the last Nike set... doing everything to piss off its parents.

    Graduated from Hoopeston Area High School, home of the Cornjerkers. Even growing up with the name, I still laugh.

    XFL Return, new logo

    The blue reads closer to purple, am I seeing it weird? Am I broken? I'm not crazy right, that's "Blurple" right? HELP.

    NHL 2017-18

    I got a Fanatics brand Red Wings sweater for Christmas and I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of it! After checking out the new Adidas jerseys in-store I decided that the extra money for the logo just didn't make sense to me so when asked what I wanted for Christmas, I pointed my family in the direction of the Fanatics brand sweater. They're basically the Reebok Premier jerseys I've been buying for the last few years, they've just sewn in a fight strap. What I really like about the Fanatics jersey is the fact that the crests and numbers are a much softer material, it feels really nice to the touch and when I have the jersey on. The fabric is a lot softer than the Adidas jerseys and previous Reebok's, which has been a complaint I've had for a while, why were the Reebok jerseys so much coarser than the old CCM jerseys? I just bought an AHL CCM jersey a few weeks ago while at a game and was amazing that the fabric was different than the Reebok jerseys, it felt much smoother and softer. The Fanatics jersey has a different cut that is really comfortable, I don't feel like the jersey is going to get in the way or end up somewhere I don't want it. Tighter tailoring is nice and while initially I thought the collars were goofy looking, now that I've worn mine a round I'm a big fan of it! The collar is a thicker material than the rest of the jersey and falls flat nicely, I think it's going to be a really nice sweater to wear over a hoodie in a few weeks when I venture to Chicago the Wings vs. Hawks game! I'm really interested in seeing how the jersey holds up over time, I tend to wear my jerseys A LOT, so this one is going to get some wear early in its life. Has anyone else bought/been gifted a Fanatics jersey? What are your thoughts on them and have yours worn well?

    College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Western Michigan looks horrid, I want to rip my eye-balls out, but the one thing that drives me nuts about their uniforms for the last three years is their inability to wear the bronco logo correctly. They also seem to have invert the logo and it doesn't look right... EVER!

    Damn they got any more? They had two when I was there.

    Thrift Store Gems 2015

    I nabbed a green Nike Oregon replica jersey. Regular $120 got it for $35 at Ross in Danville, Illinois.
  13. Which could be a reason we're seeing schools shift from NAIA to NCAA Division III. It seems every year teams are jumping "up" to D3 (I say it's a lateral move) or just dropping Football. As for the uniforms I actually really really like their splits jerseys, don't care for the chrome and I LOVE the pink helmets. The "satin look" finish pink is really nice, wish more teams would wear pink as a designated team color.

    UNLV new football uniforms

    I don't see this ending well. Has a HS head coach ever made a successful transition into D1 in the last half century? My word, I thought this was a joke until I looked it up. Anyway, I really like both helmets. Hate the uniforms, especially the joke of an attempt on the white pants. Looks cheap. That would be a really really really bad joke... and I never joke when it comes to uniforms. This is a serious forum.

    UNLV new football uniforms

    UNLV's new head coach is from Bishop Gorman High School there in Vegas and he's a fan of various different uniform combinations. They had at least three helmets last season and I couldn't even tell you how many jersey/pant combos.
