  1. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    I found this today, surfing around from a graphics designer with the upcoming Fox baseball graphics for this year. I'll have to warn you that 1) might have been made last year before the World Series since in use Cubs/Indians as placeholders and 2) uses the NFL theme. That 60 FPS tho.
  2. Super Bowl LIII logo

    You are not alone ozzyman214. They failed epically.
  3. 2018 MLS Kits

    If it is a recycle, it's an apt recycle and was bound to happen. Beautiful nonetheless.
  4. Evolving Uniform Opinions

    When the Astros introduced with their current set, I wasn't impressed and even made my first concept using a sans serif font instead of the block. Though I was glad the brick and black were gone. Now I can't look at it without breaking into a cheesy grin, for obvious reasons. The set that proceeded it, I hated it at first, grew on me when the 'Stros got better, but went back hating it again after the Stros went to garbage. Especially since I LOVED the blue and gold set. Thought the Rainbow Guts were gaudy, now I love them and wish they did a modern version instead of half-a like the BP's. Likewise, the Rockets current I liked at first since it replaced the snaggletooth pajamas. Now, not so much. I did like their old ketchup and mustard alts. The Nike redesign helped some things, but I wish they used the black alts as the template for their current set. If they win it all this year, I'll have mixed feelings if they change. Texans, I hated their home set because it wasn't red like I envisioned. But, I fell in love with the team and the uniforms especially getting the Battle Red alts. Now, I just hate the current combos. The yoga pant roads have not helped at all and I've grown tired over of blue over white. Either Battle Red over white (either sock will do) or Blue over red a la the Kardiac Kids Browns which was my earliest football uni memory. As for away, all white or maybe with red pants. I didn't like 2016's Red over blue as much I thought I would. Just wish they were red to match their warm-colored brethren (and set us apart from Dallas and the six other teams that use navy blue). Others: Shocked when the Bucs ditched the creamsicles. Now I miss the original red and pewters along with the rest of y'all. Thought Dallas' double stars were gaudy too, now I wish they were their primaries. It would be asymmetrical if they kept their current navy jerseys but at least both would use the same colors.
  5. NFL 2018 changes

    I probably throw this one out there and say they're going with a Columbia helmet.
  6. 2017 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    Vikes, Jags.
  7. Could teams in the same city share one identity?

    Had the Texans been named the Apollos, Houston baseball, basketball and football could all had space names. I wouldn't fly due to the clubs separate origins of being founded and renamed, relocated from another city with an appropriate name and having to start from scratch after having you football history ripped out from under you and put on a shelf in Nashville.
  8. And make sure to get rid of them gold pants. And no more mono for Seattle. Or New Orleans. Or...
  9. Freeform New Look

    Downgrade. The last one had personality.
  10. Well that's easy, just use the throwbacks and Color Rush's as the Home and Away respectfully. And IF they need black pants, please put stripes on it and get white socks with stripes.
  11. NFL 2018 changes

    The cancellation reso was a stupid excuse due too the fact that they could have easily just made fauxbacks for the Texans and Panthers to wear a la the Tampa Bay Rays. A lot older Texans fans wouldn't mind a Battle Red-colored variation of our original teams jersey complete with the floating Ohio State stripes. Not mention Denver, Atlanta, the Rams and a lesser extent New England's CR's showed what would it look like if a retro design used modern colors And the Chargers the inverse. Instead of the one-helmet arguments, imagine the Seahawks 80-90's jersey's in the current colors. Or a Bucco Bruce/Pewter fusion. Not haphazard like the 75th anniversary, but something that could be the best of both worlds.
  12. Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

    I've seen the light. A good idea for a Madden mockup. CR / CR / Current white pants / current socks.
  13. Looked at the Texans webpage, shows Clowney in Battle Red and navy socks. I like. Wish it was their primary.
  14. If they can mix and match then maybe the Texans can go CR / Red pants / Navy socks for a more unique look. EDIT: Titans in White / Navy / CR socks. Dolphins in White / Teal / CR socks
  15. I could use some of those nods right now. I hate too my Texans as a navy team. And the performance on the field isn't helping matters. I've always preferred the Battle Red jerseys to the navy jerseys and often wish for them to be their primary. The yoga pant away set have added to this since the phasing out of the red road socks in 08. Not to mention the Liberty White opening day set is clean AF. If we had to stay navy, I would like them to wear red pants instead of white. As for the helmet, I'm too used it being navy for it to be white. And I do feel it would not go with our current jerseys. I remember the color rush rumors from last year had us in Columbia blue. With the one helmet rule, I would presume the navy half of the bull head would be in Columbia which look freaking awesome and help link Houston's football past with the present. There's too much cool colors in the AFC south. Darker ever since the Jags went switched to black.
