    Canadian Baseball League (Halifax Update + Uniforms)

    Looks good, personally I’d ditch the grey in the wordmark/mouth to give the darker shade of gold/copper/bronze/brown/whatever that is some more contrast

    Wow. I didn’t know STX still made equipment.

    Carolina Panthers Update

    This is fantastic. I especially love the elimination of silver, which unnecessarily clutters up the uniforms

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    What I’m sort of picturing for the Seattle team is the Vancouver Grizzlies colours, but more red and black heavy with less emphasis on teal

    Dallas Winter Classic 2020 (Brand & Uniforms)

    Big fan of the event logos.

    The Kings are fine in black and silver (though I don't love the logo/striping), I have no problem with them wearing it, I think it fits them well. And I don't think its vital that the NHL have a specifically purple team per se, but I think we can agree its a shame that its completely absent from any team's scheme whatsoever while a third of the league wears red and blue or red and black. People point to the Kings as a team that should embrace it because they're the only franchise with a historical basis for wearing it, and some of those looks are better than what they have now.

    Variations on the Canucks (01-20: Flag-Inspired)

    I like it. Only thing I’d add is maybe an extremely thin stripe of bronze on the Flying V.

    These are all interesting, I’d like to see Johnny Canuck in Grizzlies colours.

    I don’t mind the Kings in black and silver, it fits and it’s still a unique scheme for the NHL. I just wish the jerseys were better. That said I would like to see some other team take up purple in some capacity, even just as a secondary colour.

    Ugh. They look like knock-off black ice jerseys.
  11. DC United’s logo looks like something a kindergartener would draw in 1941 Berlin. The idea is fine but the execution is horrible. Atlanta SC is clipart trash but so is nearly every other crest out there. It does nothing to set itself apart from being particularly terrible.

    Logo upgrades that were actually UPGRADES

    I'm a big fan of teams 'cleaning up' a logo. Keeping the essence the same but modernizing it for the current era. Some examples:
  13. New England, DC, Red Bulls, and I think an argument could be made for Salt Lake. Look, its not a great logo, but abomination is a bit much. If I saw it in passing I wouldn't look twice. Its not as good as the silverbacks crest but for a US developmental soccer team its not an abomination. I don't know if its because you have some personal stake in the team but you're being really hyperbolic about it.
  14. I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s not ideal obviously but there are far worse out there. Hell, it’s even better than some MLS crests.

    really impressed with Utica City FC

    It’s a solid identity but I have to say I’m not impressed with the Xzibit designed badge-within-a-badge they’re rocking for their crest.

    NHL 2018-19

    Agreed. In addition, having a letter and a graphical depiction of what the letter is meant to represent just seems redundant.

    They changed to those uniforms the year Messier came in. It isn’t inaccurate at all. You may not personally associate them with Messier, I don’t either, but it isn’t like there is no basis for it.

    NHL 2018-19

    The competency thing hits the nail on the head. I hate the Orca, but they finally got the colours and striping right and I’m okay with them leaving the uniforms as-is because I don’t trust them not to make a massive downgrade, especially considering this is the same group that botched the Vancouver Warriors rebrand.

    NHL 2018-19

    I just want the orca gone because it’s ugly. Nothing to do with luck or history.
  20. Goes with their navy so dark it’s nearly black

    Pacers Announce A Jersey Ad, One Ad-Free Team Remains

    I never said anything about them making a statement, just that I never would have guessed they’d be the last team without one. You know as much about the business ops in OKC as I so neither of us can truly make any definitive statements here.

    Pacers Announce A Jersey Ad, One Ad-Free Team Remains

    While you definitely have a point, I don’t think market size makes as much difference in a league as star driven as the NBA. I’m sure there are a lot of companies out there who would jump at a chance to have Russell Westbrook or Paul George wearing their logo in every shot.

    Pacers Announce A Jersey Ad, One Ad-Free Team Remains

    That’s a big reason why. A team in a market like OKC seems far more likely to jump at additional revenue and less likely to care about the perceived ‘sanctity’ of their uniforms than a team like the Lakers, Celtics, Bulls, etc. Not to mention the team’s branding is already ‘contemporary’ enough.

    Pacers Announce A Jersey Ad, One Ad-Free Team Remains

    I gotta say if you told me OKC would be the last team in the NBA to go without an Ad I would have laughed in your face. Strange times indeed.
