  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    A lot of teams have them for defensive backs and linebackers too for the same reason. Boise State is one of those:
  2. NFL 2017 changes?

  3. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Cursed as in they've been 33-7 in them, including a trip to the Playoff? Poor you. Ever since they fixed the shade of gold and weird purple-y facemask, I think the current FSU look is great. I've even warmed up on the Christmas sweater pattern.
  4. What Grinds Your Gears...

    I bet they looked at the concepts forum and saw what they had done.
  5. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    If all their jerseys were this template (sans collar), then I'd be pretty satisfied. But the over doing it with silver and chrome is not a good look for them.
  6. MLB Changes 2017

    Well, these suck about as much as I thought they would. Maybe the Rockies will wear their actual purple hats, I'd be okay with that.
  7. Your city's Mount Rushmore

    Denver: John Elway, Patrick Roy, Todd Helton, Joe Sakic Boise: Kellen Moore, Chris Peterson, Lyle Smith, Ryan Clady (?) I'm sorry for those I have offended. I don't really watch hockey but this seems fairly accurate.
  8. T-Shirt Design feedback

    This is sweet. I love the vintage lettering and the thin lines throughout. However, I think the lines might be a little too thin to be printed on a shirt, it seems like they may be almost invisible and not help the design like they could. I'd consider thickening them up a bit. Also, the zig-zag aztec-esque pattern in the circle doesn't really seem to fit with the theme, IMO. I think it would look better as a solid, albeit distressed shape. Lastly, the NJ outline seems like it's floating to me, you might want to move it down a bit so it's not so high up there.
  9. Rockies Cotton Bureau Shirt

    My Rockies-themed shirt is up on Cotton Bureau! If you know any Rockies fans (or are one yourself), here's an awesome shirt to celebrate the return of Rocktober. I need some help, I've got 8 orders with 7 days to go. Click the shirt for the link:
  10. Stolen Work

    @astone11 Thanks for finding this one.... I guess this guy on the OOTP boards has been taking a lot of people's logos, I've noticed mine and @raysox (p. 11) so far. He managed to take my crappy logo and somehow make it worse: (Mine for reference:) People are stupid.
  11. MiLB | California League Logo Rebrand

    I think one thing that would help for me is an outline on the mountains, it looks awkward where the sun goes into the cracks of the mountains. Something like this:
  12. MLB Changes 2017

    Marlins Park has gone with the old-school wordmark behind the plate for the All Star Game, I think it's a pretty good look.
  13. What Grinds Your Gears...

    I'll be in Boise when it happens, supposedly it's right along the path. I've heard that hotels have already jacked up their pricws big time. I did find out that my school is cancelling classes before 1:00 for all of us, though.
  14. USBL--St. Paul Loons Posted (24/24)

    It's officially baseball season again, and Ive been working on my fictional baseball league for the past year or so since it sort of died a couple of years ago. I've come back with a lot better ideas and cut down the number of teams to pace myself better. If you followed that thread at all, you'll see its revival is under a new name: the United States Baseball League. You'll also notice that a lot of the teams are transferred over from that old league and it may seem like the histories should transfer over as well. These histories have no relation, everything's redone, so anything you remember from that thread, it doesn't apply. Also, none of today's actual leagues exist in this world, so keep that in mind. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The United States Baseball League was formed in 1930 when teams from Kansas City, Omaha, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Boston, and New York came together and created the first professional sports league in America. Christopher Husley was elected as the first league president, and the Kansas City Browns took the first title. Husley was also elected as a charter member to the USBL Hall of Fame in 1965. Today, the USBL has inflated to 20 franchises, with the most recent expansion in 1996 and the next round of 4 coming in 2016. The USBL prides itself in small-market clubs, which it believes sets itself apart from other professional leagues in the US. Each season, 8 teams reach the postseason--the four best teams from the American and National Divisions. The first two rounds are both best-of-five matchups and the Championship Series for the John S. Branson Cup is a best-of-seven series. The USBL just released a new logo for the 2016 season. The red and blue surrounding the player represent the National and American Divisions. Uniform wise, the USBL is a classy league. Each team has home whites and road greys and is limited to three alternate jerseys, although none are required to have alternates. In addition, all teams will receive Memorial Day sets, 4th of July sets, and various special jerseys that honor multiple racial backgrounds (Latin American, Japanese, French, etc.). Patches are to be used for team-related anniversaries (10, 25, 50, 100), league-wide anniversaries, similar to the USBL's 75th Anniversary celebration in 2005, catastrophes or other current events, or in honor of former team members. Some other minor notes: Pullovers and sansabelt pants never were a fashion in the 1970s, and thus will not be used for throwbacks. This may change, who knows. Also, batting practice jerseys were never used. The standard attire for BP is the team-issued t-shirt or normal jersey and, in some cases, an alternate BP hat. In the spring leagues, most teams choose to wear their standard homes and roads and forgo the alternates. You'll note this series includes field designs as well. All bullpens are required to be out of the field of play, which means a wall separating the playing surface from the bullpens. Oh, and the concept of a designated hitter was shot down in the early 50s and has never been challenged, so it looks like they'll never make their way into the USBL. Original League Logo: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Iowa Dusters | Portland Loggers | Seattle Captains | New Mexico Suns | New York Knights | California Grizzlies | Arizona Sidewinders | Indiana Tribe | Colorado Kings | Omaha Cyclones | Pittsburgh Flying Shearmen | San Francisco Fire | Jacksonville Gators | Texas Lonestars | Nashville Blues | Chicago Wind Sox | St. Louis Archers | Boston Masons | Florida Blue Herons | Washington Potomacs | Philadelphia Liberty | Brooklyn Privateers | San Antonio Phantoms | St. Paul Loons July 4 Uniforms
  15. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    That's because it's just a recruit taking some pictures for the school to make personalized graphics. (Well, I'm about 90%sure.) Everyone does it.
  16. Dribbble Invititations

    I've got one too, @dsaline7. I really should post more. Funny, over the past couple years I've watched this thread like a hawk waiting for someone with an invite. Now the roles are reversed and there's a ton of us offering our invite to (seemingly) nobody. PM a portfolio link and I'll hook you up!
  17. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    To be fair this isn't really dependent on dimensions, with exception to the gaps. I was just trying to stitch everything together.
  18. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    I went a little overboard and made a compilation of my perfect outfield.... Western Metal Supply Co. (Petco) Green Monster (Fenway) Rockies Scoreboard (Coors) Left-Center Gap (Coors) Tal's Hill (Minute Maid) City of Pittsburgh (PNC) Triples Alley (AT&T) Out of Town Scoreboard (Coors) Pesky Pole (Fenway) Tapered Upper Decks (Kauffman) .....complete with the St. Louis Arch mowed into the grass.
  19. 2017 MLB Season

    When your team has been terrible for a decade, and continually collapses in early May, this feels pretty late in the season for us Rockies fans to be feeling good about things.
  20. 2017 MLB Season

    To be fair, his 2015 season was equally bad, so it's not like no one saw this coming.
  21. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    As long as it doesn't get used much at home, i don't mind it. This could be unpopular, but I really liked this jersey from 2012 and was hoping for a return to that: The yoke was a nice, unique look that seemed to fit them pretty well imo. It just needed TV numbers on the sleeve.
  22. This series needs more love, there's so much good stuff here. I really like that argyle pattern on the third kit, I think it would look nice on the socks as well. Love that alternate logo too!
  23. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I'm pretty sure it's going to be blue/white/orange in terms of jerseys. Not sure about helmets or pants. I'd imagine the silver stays as an accent color, though.
  24. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Boise State will release new uniforms today at 1 MT. Not significant changes from what I've heard, but the black jersey is gone (thank goodness)
  25. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    We don't hate things that are new and innovative, we hate things that suck. This is one of them.
