  1. I like how you've Charger-ified it, but I think the logo looks better aligned and balanced with the existing layout
  2. Most of the linework is too delicate to scale particularly well. I'd suggest simplifying the whole thing a bit and making it bolder.
  3. Don't get me wrong, I have a closet full of real jerseys, including a few Hockey ones. It's the same in Australia. In the AFL, the main Australian football competition, a guernsey (which are sleeveless) goes for ~$110. Most clubs will sell a long sleeve option for around $120. In the next biggest sports league, the NRL (rugby league), the jerseys go for around the ~$170 mark. I have a few examples of both, but the pricing is very strange and doesn't seem to reflect the jump in what i'm getting. I'm arguing that like anything, sports jerseys are a supply and demand market. IMO the NHL (and the NRL in Australia) have their price up too high to maximise revenue.
  4. I would never buy a fake NBA or NFL jersey, because you can buy the retails for $100 and they are of reasonable quality. $180 for an NHL jersey is very difficult to justify, and IMO is poorly priced. It definitely doesn't cost $180 to make an NHL jersey, and selling them at that price makes life very easy for people selling fake jerseys. I feel like they could reduce the price down to around the $100-120 mark and they'd probably sell double the jerseys and completely destroy the market for $50 fake hockey jerseys.
  5. I post on the biggest Australian Football forum bigfooty.com, which has tens of thousands of members and quite an active uniform and logo board. Several years back we had a rep from Adidas contact the bigfooty admin with a similar legal threat regarding concepts with Adidas logos that people were posting to the forum. We've just sort of started using the Adidas logo and Adidas templates again now, but for a couple of years there you just couldn't do it, and people would leave the logos off of concepts for Adidas sponsored teams or use an alternate logo.
  6. On the yellow based basketball uniforms for both the Australian Boomers and Opals, the 3rd green for the numbers and names has possibly given me cancer. I really like the overall design with the word attached to the yoke and the lighter green highlight on the collar and shorts, but it's pretty clear Adidas have just provided unnamed/numbered kits to the countries and let them go, and the countries have then gotten a blind person to apply the names and numbers. The green used for the printing is clearly a different shade from either of the existing greens used, but we've at least been consistent in placing the names below the yoke. On the French women's jerseys from the game against the Opals, the names are all over the place, with smaller names being higher and fully inside the yoke and longer names being moved down so they fit, some crossing over to the main body colour. It's a dog's breakfast and it's punching me right in my sports uniform nerd testes. I'd consider buying a singlet/jersey in that Adidas Australian team style to run in if they sold them anywhere. What's the point of sponsoring if you don't actually sell the merch?
  7. Ugh, ugly ugly ugly. And they'll be plastered with sponsors as well. My one hope out of this M&N deal was that we wouldn't see cheap looking sublimated jerseys, but it looks like not a lot will change in that regard. A missed opportunity for the NBL to actually sell some merchandise for the first time in 15 years.
  8. The Aston Villa home kit is an instant classic IMO. Very classy and i'll be preordering. The away I could take or leave, it would be better if the sleeves were blue.
  9. What the hell? Dafabet, okay, they're just a sponsor we've had for a couple of years, but "Prepared"? Prepared has been the Villa motto for 140 years. It would be a bit odd for a club to be using it even if they weren't wearing claret and blue.
  10. Aston Villa Under Armour teaser Based on the button on the collar i'm assuming the cut will be similar to this:
  11. Wolf rendering is absolutely top notch, great work!
  12. I think it's placed where it is very specfically so the stripe's effect isn't interrupted too much by the logo
  13. NBL appoints new Official Apparel Partner It's a really interesting move from the National Basketball League Basketball is massively popular in Australia, but the NBL markets itself really poorly and as such, it's largely ignored by fans who just follow the NBA. I've always believed that cheap looking, primarily sublimated uniforms over the past 20 years have been a big contributor to the NBL being ignored, with NBA jerseys being worn all over the place. Hopefully Mitchell and Ness can give the league a bit more a traditional, authentic look. I'm not aware of them sponsoring a league or a team, so it will be interesting to see their take on it. You'd assume they'd want to maintain their throwback aesthetic, which could be absolutely wonderful news for Australian basketball fans.
  14. Short answer: No. Actually, it's quite restrictive. There isn't even really a "Create a team" type mode. The only time you can use the creation feature is in a GM mode or career mode type thing, where you have to rebrand an existing NBA team. I don't think you can use a modified team in a casual match either. It's really disappointing because it's a brilliant, comprehensive, super powerful brand creation feature that shoehorns you into using certain game modes to take advantage of it.
  15. Colours are great, logos are great. I don't mind SAC on the jersey either. Longer city names just don't look great because of how small you have to make the font. Look at New Orleans. You lose the bold impact that a jersey should have. As some here have said, apparently Sac is a commonly used nickname in Sacramento, so it's fine.
