    XFL Return, new logo

    XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck on Tuesday gave a timeline for when the league will release branding details: https://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2018/12/11/a-pretty-easy-decision-xfl-commissioner-on-why-st.html

    Hoops for the Timbers?

    The XFL may be making a comeback

    This has been the justification used for just about every spring football league ever formed, yet I've never seen an iota of data to back it up. Personally, I'm relieved when football is over after the Super Bowl. I look forward to the break from it.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    Good guys won. Go get that second star, Timbers. RCTID! (That’s not exactly fair. KC is a class franchise with great supporters. They’re good guys, too.)

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    You're right. I feel these jerseys could, at the very least, benefit from the use of sleeve trim.

    MLS Kits 2019

    I agree with you, but even many of these would be better served by eliminating the city identifiers. The Union would look great with just the snake shield, Atlanta could use just the inner circle with the A and black-and-red stripes. The Eagle for D.C. United could stand alone without the wordmark. I'm not sure how Miami intends to use the crest on its uniforms, but I'd be disappointed if it uses the entire roundel and not just the inner shield.

    FC Cincinnati

    I wish more teams would lean toward symbols over words with their crests. Just use the crowned lion. That’s it. Nothing more.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    Oshie's got the best suggestion here by far, which I'm going to attribute to the rich and meaningful education he received during his brief period at the University of North Dakota.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    It's hard to argue the upside and downside when launching first was likely the AAF's ONLY strategy. You don't have the luxury of weighing pros and cons if the key to success is beating the other guy to market. Also, it's way too easy to infer conclusions based on what we don't know. It's possible the AAF is crowing about its financial backing because it actually has it. And the XFL's silence might not be calculated; it's possible McMahon & Co. are just getting beat at every turn. I guess I'm a little more reluctant to view any AAF missteps as a sign of portending doom, especially when compared to the progress of the XFL, of which we know very little.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I understand why someone would criticize the AAF for perhaps hastily rushing to market, but you can't dismiss that they're also very clearly pursuing a first-to-market strategy. It's not like the original XFL, the AAFL, the UFL or the others where they're launching a league in isolation. The Ebersols know they're going head to head with a rival league that will be attempting to do the very same thing. There's not likely room for two two minor professional football leagues to succeed (if any), so being first to market has its advantages. This isn't an endorsement of the strategy, but it can't be dismissed either.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I get it. I'm from Minnesota, too. This fervent Prince love, though, seems more recent than I remember. I don't recall the state identifying so closely with him while I was growing up there in the '80s and '90s, though that may just be a product of growing up outside the Twin Cities. I always knew of Bob Dylan and his Minnesota roots, though. But that, too, might be due to proximity. I grew up far closer to Hibbing than I did Minneapolis.

    Just imagine what they'll do when Bob Dylan dies.

    NFL Merry-Go-Round: Relocation Roundelay

    For that matter, why is Portland ever brought up in this discussion? There's no way an NFL team would consider Providence Park adequate, and there's nothing even remotely close to an alternative. Nor is there a real appetite for it. Hell, the recent push for MLB — while a legitimate endeavor — is still a long shot, in no small part due to real estate.

    Am I the only one that kind of likes the current set? Maybe not how its arranged now, but I think with a simplification of the colors, leaning more on the teal and orange and less on the yellow and black, it could be a fantastic look.

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    The shine on that fabric makes it look like the jersey is made of leather.
