  1. The New XFL

    Love the gradient SD chevron. Gradient on the helmet is however not working right now. Here are a few other suggestion. Try rotating helmet logo to align with the gradient on the helmet. This will help because right now there are two separate horizon lines. Maybe play around with the gradient colors blue fading to orange on a gold helmet. Blue represents the ocean and orange is the skyline with setting sun. Silhouette the ship with navy blue and give it an orange outline stroke not too wide. Keep it subtle and not like the Jacksonville Jaguars helmet. Let the negative space of a semi circle go behind the ship and represent a setting sun. Get rid of the waves. The torpedo that you already use in secondary logo might make a nice helmet stripe. Just my thoughts. Resubmit this Jersey swap with the changes and get some other eyes on it. If this doesn't work then I would redesign the helmet without a gradient and just keep it on the SD mid field logo. The New Orleans Breakers of the USFL used this helmet design but you would have to rework it to include a ship.

    Great Work on this thread. Jersey swaps are awesome. love the helmet logos of the Kodiaks and the Archers. I also like the red football. My only suggestion is that the Spaulding logo and the letter "X" in the XFL logo on the ball be blue instead of black.

    Thanks for your feedback. I really haven't considered the number of bands that will be in this series. 12 teams is usually the standard league size but I'd like to have several options to choose from so that it would attract membership. I am finding that red and black or just black and white are the most common color schemes that bands use. ( ie. Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Slayer, Van Halen and AC DC are Red and Black) I want to be more diverse with the color schemes but sometimes that is difficult to do because the color scheme is so closely tied to the logo/wordmark. I was thinking of the band Misfits tied into the Raiders silver and Black but Slayer might work. I am also finding that it is a challenge to come up with helmet logos that are not just a wordmark slapped on a helmet. Skulls and flames(Offspring, Grateful Dead, Misfits seem to be the most commonly used logos. the second most common logo has some type of wing or winged creature (Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Queen just to name a few) I am intrigued with your idea about the Kiss logo because I am a huge Bengals fan and think that the Bengals' striped helmet logo is one of the best in the NFL along with the Rams, and Vikings helmet logos. I'll mess around with it and put it out there to get your input. Thanks again for the idea.

    Here is the 3rd team in the NAC. I went with a Carolina Panthers Uniform concept and color scheme. There were several options that could work for the helmet logo but I think the one I chose works well. Let's hear your thoughts.

    I see why you have questions regarding what does or does not constitute as "Rock" music. It is an all inclusive term that is not have a clear definition. For purposes of this thread I will limit the classification of the word "Rock" to Rock bands of the 60's through the 90's of any type of Rock genre be it punk, heavy metal, or classic rock. Any bands that formed and performing in those decades will be considered as possibilities for league membership into the We Will Rock You FFL. Green Day was formed in the 80's so they could be up for consideration in this FFL. Fall Out Boy was formed in 2001 so I will say that they are not included in this league.
  6. We Will Rock You FFL

    Of course not. They will come after Nirvana and Rush. I will pair them with ZZtop in the NAC. Looking further down the road will be the Rolling Stones in the UKC and Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) in the NAC.
  7. We Will Rock You FFL

    Here is the 3rd team in the UKC. I follow the "Dead" with the "Led" Let's hear your thoughts. I decided to go with the color scheme used on their Mothership album. I also added the band members' name logos as a sticker on the back of the helmet. Jimmy Paige's logo was also used as part of the jersey number and pant stripe. Next team will be Metalica in the NAC.
  8. We Will Rock You FFL

    Yes that is correct. Rush and Bachman Turner Overdrive are the Canadian representatives. Do you have another in mind? Love to hear your suggestions.
  9. We Will Rock You FFL

    I'll keep each team in a separate post. Here is the Dead.
  10. We Will Rock You FFL

    Here are the next two teams in the We Will Rock You FFL. AC/DC from Australia goes into the UKC, and The Grateful Dead from San Fransisco goes into the NAC. Let me know what you think of these two submissions.
  11. We Will Rock You FFL

    Not bad! I'll keep these teams in mind as I continue to develop the league. Led Zeppelin in the UKC and Metallica in the NAC Right? The name Nirvana actually means - blowing out which is hopefully what the team will do to their opponents. lol
  12. We Will Rock You FFL

    Thanks, I was hoping that I could rekindle some interest from this topic of the past. Next up are AC/DC in the UKC and The Grateful Dead in the NAC. I am also open for suggestions. Other teams that have possibilities are The Rolling Stones in the UKC and Rush in the NAC. Your thoughts are always welcome.
  13. We Will Rock You FFL

    Here is my favorite band of the 70s which will be the second entry in the NAC. This is the only team from Boston that I would root for.
  14. We Will Rock You FFL

    Here is the second team to go into the UKC. I am using a flame/fire concept to tie in to one of this band's most popular songs "Come on Baby Light My Fire"
  15. We Will Rock You FFL

    Here is the first team to go into the NAC. I chose to insert the word "mighty" in the team name. It has a certain flair to it.
