    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    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.

    USL New Mexico is... New Mexico United

    This is so much better. It also works into the club's branding message as being representative of all of New Mexico. This seems like a real misstep.

    International Football 2018-2019

    Remind me of what it was like before. Did Fox Sports show more than two featured games each match day? On a different level, I find the $3 games a reasonable and welcomed a la carte model. Wouldn't the alternative be charging a sizable lump sum for the entire package? If I badly want to watch one of the other group stage games, $3 doesn't seem that much of a commitment.

    El Paso Locomotive FC (USL soccer team) crest

    At first, I mistook that star for a snowflake, and now I can't un-see it. That's an odd visual for a team from West Texas, even if it wasn't their intent.

    Isles Officially Unveil New Third Jersey

    I know what you mean. I like the simplicity, certainly, but I can't stop seeing this 50s-era catalog football jersey.

    Can't wait for Winnipeg to bust out those Thrashers throwbacks.

    The only thing that would make those better is a corresponding move back to Hartford.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    I feel like this applies to about half of the entire NBA.

    I always wondered who murdered everybody in McDonaldsland.

    North American Pro Soccer 2018

    I agree completely. The MLS has done a lot to grow the game and its fan culture in the U.S., but I'd argue that leagues like USL play an even bigger role. It's remarkable to me that a league that includes large metros like Indianapolis, Charlotte and Pittsburgh also includes smaller metro areas Bethlehem and Harrisburg, Pa.; the Rio Grande Valley of Texas; Reno, Fresno and Tulsa. Those are markets MLS can't reach on its own.

    Interesting that the USL, in explaining its restructuring, actually brought up promotion and relegation as a possibility. From the USL's Twitter feed:

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    I agree with Brian on this one. Nostalgia makes us want to look at the USFL branding far more favorably than it probably deserves. (Though the Michigan Panthers — uninspiring name excluded — were a few choices short of perfect.) I get it. I look back fondly at the NASL and the WHL the same way, and each of those leagues had some atrocious designs (I love the old Minnesota Kicks, but that logo ... ). That said, I just don't understand what sort of expectations you all had to make these AAFL logos and names seem so atrocious to you. They're FINE. Nothing spectacular, nothing atrocious — exactly what you should expect from a brand new minor league. Rewrite history and toss these new AAFL logos into the USFL: You'd be calling them some of the best ever.

    USL announces new branding and three-tiered structure modeled after the Football League in England: USL Championship, USL League 1, USL League 2 (the former PDL). Details here: https://www.uslsoccer.com/news_article/show/953025
