  1. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were 12

    Dunno if it has been mentioned, but the lions have fired their head coach. Maybe I’m too much of a fan to understand why so could someone try and explain this to me?
  2. I think you've got a winner there with the lighter blue and the gold unis. Drop the darker blue. I like it, but the lighter blue just looks better as much as I hate to admit it. The two tone stripe is a good element to use, especially on the alternative uni, so I understand wanting to keep it. Good update here!
  3. Seeing the darker blue, it's the white text on gold and sand background that's the actual issue I think. It would be a little hard to read in motion. Some options off the top of my head would be to either: - Go with a solid stripe instead of the gold and sand and use the other color for an outline to make the text stand out more. - add the darker blue to the top set as an accent color and outline everything. (or go with a 4 color scheme of sky, sun, sand, water...) - use white as an accent/outline color only. - ignore this entirely and leave it as it is. Personally, i like the look of the darker blue with the lighter sand and gold better, but that may just be a University of Michigan bias and general dislike of sky shades of blue.
  4. Do the schools have crests, or is it logos like in the USA and will we get to see any of those? I think Golden Sands needs a dark color to balance out the light colors you have going on, they're a little hard to read as they stand now. Maybe a dark blue? Or just darken the blue you already have? Otherwise these are pretty good. Keep up the good work!

    EVENT 4 Looking at the other entries for this event it wasn't a surprise that my entry yielded zero votes. It's pretty plain, nothing special about it at all.

    I got a bit of that, too. I saw Peridot from Steven Universe, but that may have been because my niece was watching the show at the time. I think had you'd been able to work the ball into the shield that would have helped with that. It's a good idea and great color scheme as others have mentioned already.

  9. This one isn't going to be as extensive as the others since I'm unable to participate in all of the events, but I would like some feedback on the events I did enter into. I'm a beginner and mostly self-taught so I need all the help I can get. Be blunt, be brutal. EVENT 1 I wanted to go with something a little different in shape and style, but I think I swung and missed pretty hard here. Since I started with the acronym I had a hard time figuring out how to make the full text look good within the boundaries I had already set and it shows. Also, looking at the silhouette I used, it looks more like basketball in football pads than a depiction of "the catch." Anyway, what do you think?

    I also thought this was a little bit busy and would have been a solid look without the blue stripes.

  12. Dorothy Coachman, 55, is a lifelong hockey fan who began playing herself at Yale in the late 60s and helped to organize the unofficial World Championship Hockey Tournament for Women in the late 80s. She is currently president of public university in western Washington state and serves on the board of directors at a national securities firm. Her votes are for: 1. Portland. A little biased based on region and while it would gain the league little in initial prestige, Coachman feels the long-term benefits of the instant regional rivalries are substantial enough to award a team to Portland. Add in a brand new arena, and it's hard to pass up. 2. Memphis. Coachman votes for Memphis hoping the high risk will pay off a higher personal reward and reach a demographic not typically associated with professional hockey.

    I can imagine that there'd be a fair amount of soccer style "gamesmanship" with this rule. Maybe add a penalty for diving or flopping?
  14. As I'm still trying to figure out what is actually going on with my uniform template (deleting and re-upping doesn't seem to be helping at all), the Lexington Fillies went with a full bodied horse silhouette to read better on helmets and other merchandise from a distance.
