  1. Welcome to the 90's

    Basketball Sentai Warrioranger, sanjou! This is what the Warriors wore when I first got into basketball, so I’ll always have a soft spot for it.
  2. Lifespan of new-age arenas

    I do wonder which Big Four league will be the first to contract teams in the modern period (the Barons-North Stars merger doesn’t count). Who would be willing to endure the PR nightmare that such action would produce?
  3. Championship matchups you wish we got?

    2016 World Series: Blue Jays vs. Nationals - I just wanted to see the Blue Jays press the “Expos issue” against the Nationals. Invite Expos players to throw out first pitches, tease the possibility of playing a game at Le $hithole Olympique, etc.. Having it come during a wave of Expos nostalgia (which has died down since Montréal elected a new mayor) would have been especially fun.
  4. Welcome to the 90's

    The 1990s has a thing for existing teams pulling a “dark & fade.” Take the Astros, for instance, with their navy-heavy design in conjunction with gold accents and Eurostile (a perennial faux-futuristic font, that had a 1990s resurgence).
  5. MLB changes 2018?

    Is it just me, or do all pictures of the Kingdome interior look extra-depressing? Maybe it’s the bad lighting, the poorly-designed Mariners’ identity, ugly coloration, I’m not sure. It’s no wonder that the Mariners wanted out of that eyesore.
  6. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Kevin Durant is out 2+ weeks with a broken rib. Eep.
  7. City/State Color Identities

    So, navy and orangey-red (with silver accents)?
  8. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    Why do I get the feeling that some people’s knowledge of Greek mythology comes entirely from Disney’s Hercules?
  9. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    I’d say the International League Baltimore Orioles had a “birds on bat” iteration that was better than anything worn by the Cardinals before or since.
  10. Cleveland Napoleons Baseball

    While I get where you’re coming from and I want to like it, there are significant flaws in the concept. 1. “Napoleons” is too long for a baseball team. If you don’t want the “Naps” nickname, go back to the drawing board. It should be two syllables, for writing on a jersey and for singing (tip: if “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” sounds awkward with the team name/nickname, start over). 2. When we hear the name “Napoleon,” we think of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France or the phrase “Napoleon Complex.” Almost nobody outside of Cleveland would think about a really good Deadball-Era player/manager. 3. The illustration logo would be terrible for branding. Either go for the cartoony style or a Blackhawks-style profile for Lajoie. The arrowhead might be ok, but it makes little sense for a new brand. The “C” you have in the latest update is also a downgrade from their current logo. I totally get where you’re coming from, but it’s just a bad idea all around to name the team after an obscure player and to use an outdated logo style. There’s potential, but it needs refinement and/or a reboot.
  11. MLB changes 2018?

    Ah, that's the near-invisible gold drop shadow working its magic. It gave the numbers an extra layer of definition against the black background.
  12. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    The Warriors were bound to break down sooner or later. The one-seed isn’t totally necessary, and I’m sure they’ll be fine without it. Still, I’m not looking forward to Houston in May/June, maybe. I’m just glad I can keep up my Dragon Ball Z Abridged .gif habit in this thread.
  13. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Yeah, the expanded '04-'11 set really doesn't look good. It introduces problems not present in the released set. These include the crummy "5" in the numbers, that weird "T" on the "Toronto" script, and whatever is going on with that "J." It's like finding out that the Producer's Cut of Halloween 6 was just as bad as the theatrical version, albeit in different ways.
  14. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Depressing romantic life five!
  15. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Look what I found on Phoenix Design Works' website! They made a full "Blue Jays" script for the Black Jays' identity, as well as a different "Toronto" wordmark and number font. Their work also includes a different Astrodome logo and an updated H-star.
