    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Look like the 2015 New York all-star jerseys.
  2. Bump for new entries. Arizona Coyotes Trying to mesh together their inaugural jerseys with the colour and style of their contemporary jerseys. I am not fond of their current jerseys but I do like re-addition of black and attempt to make them livelier. But like a lot of people (based on the concepts I see) I'd wish the Coyotes would embrace the elements that are strictly unique to them instead of opting for generic stripes. Pittsburgh Penguins I like the Lemieux era angled sleeve striping but I don't like the narrow yellow outlines on the road white jerseys they've maintained even today after reverting back to this classic look. Just straighten those out and I think Pittsburgh pop. Philadelphia Flyers Lindros era Flyers > Giroux era. Two other updates. One to Buffalo, switching the yokes and replace the shoulder patch. And optional Calgary design, replacing the cream with gold on the home and white on the road so they clash less with Arizona.
  3. Updating with three entries. Detroit Red Wings Toronto Maple Leafs Tampa Bay Lightning
  4. I originally had it blue but I do think Colorado have it right in real life, silver borders maroon cleaner than navy does (a revelation I've had with this series is that some odd real life choices do work better than I used to think the did). But for prosperity's sake, here's Colorado with a blue stripe. Here is an updated Calgary design too (sleeve stripes more prominent, designing this with '80s rugby polo top' in mind). And five new entries; Los Angeles Kings Added a shoulder patch. Maintained the sleeve piping because I think it adds depth to what would otherwise be a very bare black, white and silver look. Meeting the Kings halfway too as far as the hem stripes go too, half a stripe cut off at the waist for home and road so at least both jerseys match. Minnesota Wild Matching the home to the road while keeping the same striping. This what I mean when some teams get it right even if it's off-putting for a concept - I just don't think a red stripe fits anywhere on the Wild's white jersey, but the red numbers ensure there's at least some balance of red between the home and road set. St. Louis Blues Just changing the numbers and logo colours. I had a wilder design in mind but maybe I'll tweak for an alternate. I think this is classic modern era Blues. Ottawa Senators Originally this was a Team Canada jersey but Ottawa need some gold and the design evolved a little from there. I think Ottawa are a black team at heart too, it accentuates the red and gold (plus there are enough red teams). Washington Capitals Just want to see Washington remove the sleeve piping.
  5. Three new updates. Calgary Flames True to the unofficial theme of this series, I am very drawn to the idea of Calgary in maroon (and cream), I suppose because when I think of Calgary I think of western motifs. New Jersey Devils This stripe pattern came to me in a dream (otherwise I just would have added back the old hem stripes. I also think angled sleeve stripes look more devilish. Colorado Avalanche The Avs look good in real life, although I think the mountain sleeve stripes don't lend themselves to modern templates, so combining them with another one-off jersey look makes the best of both worlds, in my opinion.
  6. Thanks for the feedback. Here is an edit of Anaheim ft. an orange hem: And an update of Columbus with a round logo and squarer numbers: And two new entries. Winnipeg Jets I kinda just want Columbus and Winnipeg to switch colour schemes. Las Vegas Golden Knights Since the Knights are an expansion team, coming up with ideas from scratch always makes them look like a fantasy team to my eyes, so this is basically just what they're wearing now plus but with some extra black on the road sleeves to add a little more balance.
  7. I am not good at preamble. I started some random NHL concepts, it turned into a redesign series. I thought I'd share them, now that I've completed about half the NHL. A bunch first up; Anaheim Ducks I was - am - a big fan of their old Stadium Series uniform as well their subsequent orange alt, so I wanted to embrace the orange a lot more. Boston Bruins Similarly here I loved the Bruins old Winter Classic jersey, want to see more of it. Buffalo Sabres You can perhaps sense a pattern emerging of me being very inspired by one-off jerseys that I want to see made into a set. Chicago Blackhawks The pattern continues with the Blackhawks, too, with the roads inspired by the amount of black that decked their 2016 Stadium Series sweater. Columbus Blue Jackets Simple, civil war era inspired Blue Jackets concept. Wanted to ditch the navy and red and see them take on this kind of look full time. C&C welcome. Winnipeg and Vegas coming soon.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Growing up in Australia, those Tampa Bay uniforms were the first NFL uniforms I ever saw thanks to brief coverage of the Super Bowl. I was 9 years old, I had a notebook where I would sketch uniforms in (mostly AFL and ODI cricket uniforms, because, Australia) and I remember drawing those pretty vividly because pewter was like a new colour to me. When I see those, I think of drawing them, and I think of the simpler times of early childhood.

    The Hollywood Nights alt didn't work for me at all in practice. The yellow striping looked tacky and mismatched on a black jersey with a purple wordmark. The black mamba city jersey last year was a better black alternate uniform for the Lakers. So was this old jersey Kobe wore on the cover of Slam: http://slammagazine.wikia.com/wiki/SLAM_74?file=SLAM74.jpg Along with the pinstripes, they're all better than the Hollywood Nights alt in my view.

    Purple pinstripes uni is better than the old Adidas sleeved black alternate.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Their point was Jacksonville was inspired by the broader philosophy of traditional uniforms being simplistic. The specifics of what Jacksonville got right or wrong is irrelevant. Those examples work fine.

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    Playing the Rams in Madden and think the color rush helmet and yellow pants teamed with the white jersey is their best possible current combination. If they just changed the gold trim to yellow they'd be perfect.
  15. I take back everything I said about Jacksonville now that they wearing teal pants. I with Tampa would wear red pants too.
