  1. The World Ice Hockey Continents Cup (6/8) Oceania added

    Man that's cool. You took quite the risk but I like it. Very interesting.
  2. Pawnee 2024 Summer Olympics

    1. It's a fantasy thing, they are obviously not going to have the Olympics in Pawnee 2. Quit bumping old threads. That's annoying and it could get you booted from this community.
  3. This league has an interesting aesthetic. I feel like the P-oar logo is your strongest one for the row. I'll be watching this thread.
  4. National Floor Hockey League

    That St. Louis Pioneers logo is probably one of the best St. Louis logos I've ever seen. Absolutely wonderful. This is a great series btw. I'm especially loving the wooden rinks.
  5. In the 1990-91 season, to show support to the Canadian troops deployed to the Persian Gulf, these camo uniforms were worn for a few games. They became so popular, that they were used as an alternate uniform for the next several seasons. They were resurrected in the 2012 season and continued to serve as the alternates until the Adidas takeover in 2017: 1990 Special 1991-2006 Alternate 2012-2017 Alternate In 1992, the name outlines were removed and a white helmet was used for road games: 1992-2017 In the 1992-93 season, to celebrate the team's 100th anniversary, these uniforms based on the inaugural ones were worn for a few games: 1993 Special In 2006, the previous camo uniforms were replaced by these less popular CADPAT uniforms: 2006-2012 Alternate In 2007, the Dragoons would face off against their provincial rivals in the Winter Classic. They wore these 1927 inspired uniforms: 2007 Winter Classic In 2014, the Dragoons would again host the Winter Classic, this time against a southern foe, wearing these fauxbacks based on the 1939 white uniforms: 2014 Winter Classic In 2017, when Adidas took over, the overall design of the Dragoons uniforms, considered sacred by fans at this point, stayed the same, while the numbers and names reflected a more historic feel: 2017-Present
  6. In 1939, a white uniform was added for road games. These uniforms would be worn until the 1942-43 season when the team again suspended operations due to World War II: 1939-1942 When the club returned in 1945, they had a new more unified look with bolder striping, and a new way of doing business. Because the way the team missed a lot of hockey during the last two wars, the club lifted its restriction on non-veteran and military players (although the had been team accepting trades and free agent signings since the 1920s). Because of this, the team became known simply as the Quebec Dragoons, but kept their original crest and history. 1945-46 The next season, the color of striping on the white jerseys was reversed and the black outline on the red jersey's numbers disappeared: 1945-1962 In 1962, sleeve numbers were added and an additional white outline was added to the crest: 1962-1968 In 1968, the sleeve numbers moved to their current spot in the sleeve stripe: 1968-1978 In 1978, the Dragoons begrudgingly added names to the back of their sweaters and also changed the numbers a bit: 1978-1987 In 1987, the names were given extra outlines which made them almost impossible to read on the red jerseys: 1987-1992
  7. Up next are the Royal Canadian Dragoons HC (known as the Quebec Dragoons after WWII) The Dragoons began play in 1893 wearing these uniforms based on the dress uniforms of the regiment. They would continue to wear these uniforms until the team suspended operations in 1916 because of World War One: 1893-1916 After the war was over, the Dragoons picked up where they left off, putting together a decent team for the 1919-1920 season. Numbers were added to the back of the sweaters, and the regimental crest got bigger and found its way to the center of the uniform: 1919-1920 The next season, a white outline was added to the crest and the striping: 1920-1924 In 1924, the sash wrapped around the back of the uniform, and the font and color of the number was changed: 1924-1927 In 1927, sleeve stripes were added mimicking the sash and belt stripes and although it was hard to see from a distance, the crest was added to the sleeve stripe: 1927-1931 In 1931, the crest outline became black to help it stand out: 1931-1935 In 1935, the sash was cut off at the shoulder, the belt stripe and sleeve crests disappeared, and the number became gold with a thin black outline. This basic design would be used for the next 80+ years: 1935-1939
  8. In 2007, the Thunderbolts again modernized their look changing up the striping and adding very 2007-ish piping. The gold alternate was also updated: 2007-2017 2007-2017 Alternate In 2008, the Thunderbolts faced the Buffalo Nickels in the Winter Classic and wore these uniforms: 2008 Winter Classic In 2017 when Adidas took over, the design carried over without the piping and with a new font: 2017-Present
  9. In 1965, the outlines on the numbers were dropped to make them more legible: 1965-1978 In 1978, names were added to the back of the jerseys: 1978-1982 In 1982, the uniforms went through another makeover and the yellow road jerseys were retired in favor of white ones: 1982-1992 For the 1992-93 season to celebrate their 100th anniversary, the Thunderbolts wore throwback jerseys for some games while also redesigning their crest and the home blue uniform: 1992-2007 1993 Special In 1999, a gold alternate jersey was added: 1999-2007 Alternate
  10. Up next is the Toronto Athletics/Toronto Thunderbolts. The Toronto Athletics began play in 1893 wearing these uniforms: 1893-1906 In 1906, stripes were added to the sleeves, and in 1915, the name of the team was changed to the Toronto Thunderbolts: 1906-1919 In 1919, the Thunderbolts changed their look removing a great deal of blue, and adding numbers to the back of the jersey: 1919-1930 In 1930, the Thunderbolts added a bunch of stripes. This look would last for 22 years, and was worn during the Thunderbolts greatest dynasty in the 1930s. 1930-1939 In 1939, a new clash uniform was added for home games and the pants became blue: 1939-1951 In 1951, white was added to the color scheme and the jerseys went through a makeover: 1951-1963 In 1963, after being bought out by a younger group of owners, the Thunderbolts radically modernized their look: 1963-1965
  11. For the 2008 Winter Classic game, these uniforms were worn inspired by the 1903-05 uniforms. They were so popular that they were used as the club's first alternate uniform until 2017: 2007-2008 Special 2008-2017 Alternate For the 2011 Winter Classic game, the Nickels were the road team, so they wore gray uniforms based on their 1919 uniforms: 2010-2011 Special When Adidas took over the league's uniforms in 2017, the Nickels brought back the lace-up collars and original font: 2017-Present
  12. In 1950, the striping became bolder and the current crest was adopted. This would be the basic look the team would use until today: 1950-1960 In 1960, numbers were added to the sleeves to aid in identifying players: 1960-1978 In 1978, according to a new IHA rule, names must be displayed on the back of the jersey: 1978-1982 In 1982, the collar was changed from a lace-up collar to a two-tone collar and a stripe was added to the pants: 1982-1995 For the 1992-93 season, to celebrate the team's 100th anniversary, these uniforms based on the inaugural uniforms were worn for a few games: 1992-93 Special In 1995, the font was changed for the first time since the addition of numbers to the sweaters: 1995-2017
  13. Stay tuned, especially once we reach the 1920s... For the 1919 season, the nickel logo got larger and simplified. For the first time in franchise history, numbers were added to the back of the uniform: 1919-1921 In 1921, white was added to the logo and numbers to help them stand out: 1921-1927 In 1927, a silver yoke was added and the chest stripes disappeared. The blue jersey would look fairly similar for the next 90 years: 1927-1932 In 1932, the crest was updated: 1932-1937 In 1937, the pants became blue: 1937-1939 In 1939, a white jersey was added for road games, and the collar became a lace-up collar. This uniform would last throughout the next decade: 1939-1950
  14. This thread is not dead, however, I am changing the way I do this. I'll be releasing the history of each team starting with the oldest and working my way from 1893-2017. Up first is the Buffalo Hockey Club: The Buffalo Hockey Club began play during the inaugural season of the IHA, and has been a part of the league since day one. During their first few seasons, they wore these simple uniforms: 1893-1897 In 1897, the cub added stripes to their uniforms: 1897-1900 In 1900, the club changed their look, but retained their B logo for promotional materials: 1900-1903 In 1903, a yoke was added. This uniform was worn for the next decade: 1903-1915 In 1915, the previous owner and retired goaltender Eugene McCreary fell ill and had to sell the team. The club was renamed the Buffalo Nickels and changed their colors and look: 1915-1916 The next season, the Buffalo Nickels added a patch showing a buffalo nickel to the front of their uniform: 1916-1919
  15. Fixing the Adidas NHL mess

    I've been super busy with my new part-time job as Lead Artist with a brewing company and interviewing for other jobs as well as finishing up my Army career (9 days to freedom!), so I haven;t had time for concepts, but today, I took a look at two of the worst Adidas jerseys and fixed them up. What do you think?
