  1. Changes to Titans uniforms in 2018 are 'not minor'

    jesus. just when i think we're done with the "north stars belong in minnesota" debate, i get a "oilers don't belong in tennessee" debate. as an adopted texan, both franchises deserve their own history. anyway, that mascot's new "logo" sure reminds me a lot of the concept i made in madden for the titans a few years ago. if that's the direction they plan to go, i'm 500% on board.
  2. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    that's ziggy. and i dare say, that IS his correct uniform.
  3. those mavericks jerseys are amazing. my only critiques would be to change the D-Town jersey to say Big D.people dont really say "d-town" that i've ever heard. Big D is our nickname. I'd buy a Big D jersey and I'd buy a green jersey. I'm not even a basketball fan. i also wouldn't be upset if a little of that blue shade got mixed into the home/roads, but i know the contrast might not allow it

    would you consider parting ways with that beauty for an old oilers fan in texas?

    Preds have never really had a decent logo at all in their entire existence though. The fossil skull was the closest but people didn't seem to like it because it was a dead version of their mascot. I mean, so is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and people think that's pretty bad ass... So I dunno.

    Same. And they don't even sell those chips in Texas. I'm trying to figure out if I remember it from New York as a kid or Alabama as a kid.... Sure ain't Texas. That logo is so similar that it honestly reminded me of a potato chip bag that I haven't even seen for over twenty years. How that got approved, I do not know.

    You ever over sharpen a raster graphic of a jersey? I used to make mods for the NHL series on PC and I'd sharpen my jerseys before installing them, since I found it helped with such small canvases back in the day. When I learned the Oilers stripes had copper AND red, it reminded me of how a low-res jersey graphic would look if you sharpened the hell out of it. Almost like an oversharp blue and orange. The copper is what is left of the orange and the red is that pixel of oversharp artifact along the edge. I always thought it was pretty brilliant, and probably had it's genesis in some graphic designer's chance experiment in Photoshop. I'm basing that on absolutely zero fact, however.

    Truth. Hell, the Blue Jackets have been more consistent than the Blackhawks or Bruins.

    i think they'd have to flip the blue and orange. the yoke is blue, outlined in orange. the numbers are blue outlined in orange. if they just filled in the hem stripes, it'd be orange outlined in blue. they'd need to flip that. but as it is, it's perfect and gorgeous, so why bother?

    i feel like i'm going to have to be buying a mcdavid road jersey sometime in the near future. a matching home would go a long way here.
  11. Hand drawn Fishing Logo

    i think it's a fantastic start. my critiques are as follows: light grey, yellow, and white are all very light colors. you're going to want to add some more contrast in there to really make the logo stand out in all applications. you could go with a darker grey, different colors, maybe a grey fish instead of a white one, and go with a contrasting background color.... tons of options, but currently it is a light-on-light-on-light logo that just doesn't have the contrast needed to really shine. also, the bottom half of the roundel looks very very empty with the top-heavy "REEL BROS." sharing real estate with the maple leaf. you could try to fill the bottom part of the roundel with something, like maybe hooks or some kind of nautical flourishes.... or you could just try to space out the 3 elements (leaf, REEL, and BROS) more evenly... but as it stands, that roundel is very top-heavy. i'd definitely go with thicker outlines to help keep everything neatly divided, but i think the main thing you can do to improve this logo is to give it more contrast through a combination of heavier line-weight and sharper contrast in colors. other than that, i love it. that's a really clean illustration of a fish.

    i like the white gloves, in theory. but the home jersey being basically devoid of white makes them stand out in a bad way. just a single white stripe somewhere would fix that. i'd recommend wearing black (or gold) helmets instead of slate, and black gloves. the more black they use, the more the slate grey would stand out. if you have too much slate and no black, you can't tell it isn't just all faded black.... but that's just my two cents.

    i'm the opposite... every time i've seen the knights unis, i've liked them less than the time before. i really liked them at first. i think i only really like them in full equipment. the mannequin looked cool. picturing them on the ice, they look cool. seeing them on drafted players, however, they just look silly. like i'd never want to wear that in public, as a fan. it's too gaudy for casual wear... i feel the same about the predators inaugural uniforms, with the bright silver shoulders..... i own a mike dunhan predators jersey, and i feel like i'm a power rangers cosplayer every time i put it on. i'm just not a fan of that glittery gold fabric. hated it on the senators, and i don't much care for it on the knights. i do, however, think slate grey makes a gorgeous jersey base. (and the helmets too. i need one!)

    i used to really admire and respect the entire devils organization. thought that even though i was a stars fan, the devils were like my organizational soulmate. how i'd want my team run, in a vacuum. that obviously left with lou. someone explain this logic to me: redesign some long-standing uniforms because you want to be more modern and usher in a new era... sort of chicken out and do nothing but adjust line weights and drop the waist stripes... then when people tell them they shouldn't have done anything, they respond like "pssssh. we don't care about trivial things such as fashion." IF YOU'RE "NOT A FASHION COMPANY" THEN WHY DID YOU GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO ALTER YOUR PERFECTLY FINE UNIFORMS TO BEGIN WITH? you can't belittle people for caring about aesthetics, as if you don't, when the entire reason they changed was because you thought they needed to change.

    no arguments here.
