  1. 2018 MLB Season

    I think the saddest part of the mess that is the 2016-2018 Reds is the fact that Joey Votto is stuck in the middle of it. I'm a Cardinals fan, so I've seen a lot of him over the years and spent a lot of time cussing him too. He is legitimately one of the greatest hitters to have ever played and he goes largely unnoticed since he plays on butt teams in Cincinnati. It's too bad the Reds can't/won't? put a better team around him.
  2. I love it, simple and clean. The Kelly green is awesome and the Jets should be using it yesterday. The only change I would suggest would be to add a helmet stripe that matches the pants, but it's definitely not lacking without it.
  3. NBA Redesign Concepts (T-Wolves 4/25)

    I like this. The font is very Western and to me, tour dark purple looks more like navy blue, which I think works better anyway. I do think I would use the note logo on the shorts instead of the snowflake and I think the front number needs to match the back. If you do that, you can make the wordmark the opposite color if that makes sense? You have a good start, but I think there are some tweaks that need to be made.
  4. Wideright imagines the AAF

    I'll second the San Antonio Garrison, with some sort of Alamo motif. If you do decide to go this direction, I'd suggest a brick red, navy blue and, white/cream color scheme. If you want to stay away from red/white/blue, maybe gunmetal gray instead of blue.
  5. Well I kept the silver pants because the Panthers have always worn silver pants and the teeth/eyes are still silver in the logo, so I kept the silver pants as the primary home pants. To be honest, they don't look good with the blue or white jersey, but I'm still hesitant to get rid of silver entirely.
  6. The number font is based on the wordmark, a sans serif italic font. I actually thought it worked really well. What would you have in mind to change it to? The idea behind the black helmet was kinda for it to get "lost". All you see is the highlights of the black fur flashing in the light, or maybe I'm over thinking that. I want to avoid outlines on the numbers, so here is a white jersey with black numbers and blue pants as the primary. And here it is with black pants:
  7. I really wanted to like the single color numbers. I have a real soft spot for them because they can feel both old school and modern at the same time, but I don't like them here. They make the jersey look incomplete without contrasting outlines, so that's kinda disappointing. Overall, I still think the new uniforms are good, not great, but good. I love the glossy helmet. That's how the Jaguars' helmet should look. The number font is cool as hell. I like the accent stripes around the collar and I think the diagonal sock stripes are a unique touch that isn't kitschy. I don't like: the black numbers on the white jersey, they should be teal for the sake of color balance. Speaking of color balance, I could stand to see some gold incorporated into the uniforms beyond the logos, but it's not a deal breaker here. The pants need something more of a stripe. They are a little too plain for my taste, but I get what they were going for. I really dislike the empty sleeves. Put the jaguar logo or TV numbers there, but the need something. If they wear sensible combinations (not monochrome) most of the time, I think these uniforms will Iook great on the field.
  8. With teal socks and you've got a deal
  9. I know it would be a bit redundant but putting the jaguar logo on the sleeves would improve the new look, might be the perfect splash of gold? I'll never understand why so many teams are content to have empty sleeves. Teal numbers would be nice on the white jersey, as would a pair of teal socks. Looking forward to seeing better images of the uniforms tomorrow.
  10. It would be too bad if the new pants don't have stripes. That's a very amateurish look IMO. Not crazy about the lack of gold, but I don't think it will be a deal breaker. Also I would be really surprised if the numbers turn out to simply be a straight-up varsity block font, that being said, you can't really go wrong with a nice block font, especially in one- color.
  11. A while back someone on the boards pointed out some of the flaws with the current Panthers logo and ever since then, the wonkey left eye and slightly out of perspective lower jaw/teeth has driven me nuts. So, I have made some tweaks, I think i fixed the perspective issue and made the shape of the left eye more similar to the right one. The uniforms feature black helmets, which I am picturing with a high gloss finish. The new striping pattern is based on "speed lines", the Panther's whiskers, and the detailing on the wordmark. The pants stripe wraps around the front of the pants onto the knee and the collar striping would be a detail unique to the Panthers in the NFL. The Panthers' bold electric blue is strong enough, IMO to be used for sleek, modern single-color numbers on the jerseys. The primary home pants remain silver and the primary home pants are now black. The alternate jersey remains blue and is an inverse of the black jersey. I introduced blue pants into the rotation and thy are shown here with the blue jersey, but wouldn't necessarily be worn with the blue jersey. The Color Rush uniform is the "Black Panther" uniform, paired with all-blue socks to balance out all of the black. Here are some of the uniform combos paired with alternate pant options: So, please feel free to let me know what you think, I always appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.
  12. You did. Accidental double post on my end. I see what you're saying about the stripes now. I hadn't thought of that, I was just using an old helmet design that I thought was cool.
  13. Not sure what you mean by C stripe?

  15. Here's a new one for the day, DA BEARS!!!!!! I mad a tweak to the outline of the classic Wishbone C. Now it always has only one outline, contrasting the background color. I also updated the wordmark, keeping the same feel but using a more contemporary font. Now, the Bears don't have bad uniforms by any means, but I think they could use some updating. Originally, I was thinking of something a little more out there, similar to @Brave-Bird 08's Bears concept, but ultimately I decided to go more conservative. The most significant change is a change to the striping, now the striping on the blue jersey is the inverse of the white jersey striping. I also flipped the striping on the blue pants to "match" the striping on the white jersey, the same way the white pants "match the blue jersey. The GSH memorial is now on the front helmet bumper, instead of taking up real estate on the sleeve. These combos would be the primary uni combinations, but the white pants could be worn occasionally with the white jerseys. The alternate uniform is a throwback to the Bronko Nagurski era uniforms. I thought the helmet design and wild stripes would be a fun way to change it up once or twice a year. Since the NFL relaxed the Color Rush program the orange Color Rush jersey is paired with white pants. The jersey is a fauxback based on the orange jerseys the Bears have worn historically. I love the Bear logo, but I couldn't find a good place for it on the primary uniforms, so I am using it as a helmet logo on the Color Rush fauxback. Well, that's it for the Bears. Thanks for taking a look and please feel free to offer any C&C. I'm looking forward to what everyone thinks.
