    Slapshot's NHL

    I adore that D logo you’ve made for the Devils alternate.
  2. Dumb. I thought the whole point of Superhero night was supposed to be about superheroes, not veggie tales knock offs.

    Hockey Canada unveils new Black Alternate

    It isn't. Black has been part of Canadian National Team identities for a long time, in quite a few sports. I don't know why people think the colours of a team need to match 1:1 with the colours on a flag.

    I like it.

    NHL 2018-19

    Canucks are holding a fan vote on what throwback the team wears for their 50th anniversary season. http://contests.canucks.com/classicjerseyvote/ I have a hard time imagining it won’t be the skate, but maybe the Flying V will pull ahead due to sheer meme-iness.

    MLB Unveils Logos for all 2018 Postseason rounds

    Just awful. These look so cheap and low brow, like something from 2003 trying to be cutting edge, or the banner from a website you made in a high school class.

    I also prefer the white numbers for the Blues. Not sure why, they just look crisper, cleaner and cooler to me.

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    I mean, it doesn't HAVE to. Nothing HAS to match. Every team is perfectly within their right to wear completely jarring mismatched uniforms. The discussion is about what looks best, and imo wearing a grey facemask when you don't have grey in your colour scheme looks bad. I understand the 'vintage' argument, but to me when a team like the 49ers wears a grey facemask its no different than a team like the Giants wearing a green facemask or a team like the Steelers wearing a red facemask. Its jarring with the rest of the visual identity.

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    And the Giants have a significant amount of grey in their colour scheme. 'Context' was the entire point of my post. I don't care how long the 49ers or Cardinals have worn grey facemasks, it looks cheap and bad, like they couldn't get facemasks that match the rest of their uniforms.

    Grey Facemasks For Everyone*

    If your team does not have grey in their colour scheme, a grey facemask just looks ugly. For teams like New England or Seattle, while they don't have a grey facemask, it wouldn't look out of place since grey/silver are an integral part of their colours. Conversely, teams like San Francisco should have a facemask that matches the rest of their uniforms. Grey looks bush league.

    The 2018 NHL Silly Season: Dilly Dilly

    Good luck to you. We need another elite pair of brothers out here on the West Coast to fill the void left by the Sedins. ”Lack ‘2’s for Jack Hughes”.

    ECHL Maine Mariners Unveil Inaugural Uniforms

    Meh. The logos are fantastic. The jerseys are fine, but I’d like to the complete uniform. Right now it looks pretty run of the mill.

    Disappointing, where did he say that?

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    To be fair, most old time children’s songs, fairy tales, etc are pretty messed up when you examine them closely.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    I do have an issue with using the term “bland” as a critique. It doesn’t really mean anything. It feels like something you say to describe a uniform you don’t like without actually having a reason for why it looks bad. One man’s “bland” is another’s “traditional”. I think context and history determines blandness a lot more than actual design.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    These are just bland. To me “retina searingly ugly” is something garish and eye catching in the wrong way, like the wild wing or Flying V jerseys. These are just boring with a really stupid pattern.

    Blandest Uniforms in Modern History

    The Leafs would look so much better if you put the new logo on these uniforms.

    I'm not in the 'realistic duck' camp. As far as I'm concerned, a 90s expansion team named after a Disney movie has more right than anyone to have a cartoony logo

    On the plus side, a mighty ducks jersey in black might become popular enough to supplant the current webbed D jerseys.

    CFL to bid adieu to Adidas after this season (2018)

    What else would typically be supplied in a uniform deal?

    Canadian Elite Basketball League

    These look like Create-A-Team logos in an EA game.

    MLB by NIKE

    These are all fantastic. I’d love to give some more detailed feedback, but the only thing I can say is that you’ve managed to take every team’s core aesthetic and improve upon it. You’ve made some teams with bad identities look good, and teams with good identities look great.

    NHL 2017-18

    Most people in Vancouver at least are aware of Orca Bay, but the critique there is not so much that the logo was too corporate, though that is commonly heard. What you usually hear is that when Orca Bay got the team and changed the logo it kicked off the most painful era in team history. Messier, Keenan etc. I remember going to games in 2006 when the Canucks wore their throwback stick in rinks not as alternates, but as second home and away jerseys. They were so popular everyone was sure they’d be returned to fulltime home and away jerseys once the Reebok change over happened. I have zero proof of this so I won’t try to claim it as fact, but I’m convinced keeping the orca and adding the “Vancouver” script was a ploy to sell merch during the upcoming olympics. It’s definitely a more “tourist friendly” logo for lack of a better term. Yes I’m aware of the historical precedence of the script, but imo it explains the copy pasted look a lot better.
