  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    So NPB and MLB resolved their posting system issues and Shohei Otani is coming over. Before he breaks fantasy baseball I've got the feeling he's gonna surprise with his team choice. Yankees appear to be the favorite right now with Hideki Matsui on deck to recruit him and with the 2nd greatest amount of bonus pool money, but Otani's said money isn't important to him and the fact that he could've waited two years to make $100,000,000+ but is instead coming over now is a sure sign he means it.
  2. I've sketched out something similar to your C logo. I don't care much for the CHI one, but I like your take on the standalone C-horn but I wonder if it might be more successful with the point at the bottom, like it was taken off of a charging bull? Something like this? Either way, I think you're onto something.
  3. I missed the 10-1 shellacking of the Pens, but I'm enjoying this Columbus game. The Hawks look fast, crisp and physical. That 3rd goal will read as Toews, assisted by Saad, but that was a great hit by Panik that made it happen.
  4. Little Caesars new logo

    Out of all of those QSR pizza joints, Hungry Howie's is the best by far. Unfortunately it's not national.
  5. Cardinals (and Blues) fans are more tolerable when you realize most of their general awfulness comes from a massive inferiority complex St. Louisians have, the source of which is "all things Chicago."
  6. Outback Steakhouse New Logo/Font?

    The new font is fine and the mountainous setting is a legacy element, but why in the blue hell would they move away from their brand color of red to a black logo?
  7. 2017 MLB Season

    Yanks apparently just got Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle for a package of "low level but well-regarded" players, including Blake Rutherford. Can a team as bad as the ChiSox have a GM who wins Executive of the Year?
  8. When did the "dat hat" trend start?

    See, I look terrible in high crowns. Finding out that New Era made low profile 59fiftys was a revelation.
  9. New Honey Comb Branding

    I like it. I'm interested to see what the non-promotional packaging looks like.
  10. 2018 Winter Classic Logos

    The Winter Classic logo feels too confined. Some of the better WC logos had design elements (sometimes the typography) that broke thru the "walls" of any lockup they used. I think you should explore ways to loosen the restrictions of the holding device to make the whole design feel more dynamic and exciting.
  11. Any chance? Of course. They're still the Blackhawks. Is it likely? Of course not. Nashville looks like the better team.
  12. Let's go, Hawks. I can't do a second OT.
  13. Blackhawks in 6. Across the board.
  14. Updated Aldi logo

    That DOES sound like Paul Heyman!
  15. I have a recurring daydream where I win a lot of money and then partner with Vince McMahon to bring the Whalers back to the good fans, right here in Hartford, Connecticut.
  16. New Impact Wrestling Logo

    There are a few things I'm not a fan of, but it's such an extraordinary improvement that I won't complain too loudly.
  17. 2016-17 NBA Season

    As a casual fan, NBA protected-pick trades are dumb. The Bulls get a pick from the Kings that's either really, really valuable or completely worthless. No in-between.
  18. Try living in Saint Louis as a Hawks fan. You'd harbor ill will towards them. I love living here, but many of the Saint Louisians I've met have an inferiority complex when it comes to Chicago in general that gets magnified when the Blues and Blackhawks play. I've dealt with so much crap, some good-natured but much of it not, basically since this current generation of Hawks won their first Cup.
  19. 2016 NFL Playoffs

    That works. Former trusted member of the team, left with kind of hurt feelings, maybe he harbored ill intentions the whole time.
  20. 2016 NFL Playoffs

    Belichick is Palpatine. He wouldn't plant the weakness.
  21. 2016 NFL Playoffs

    I'm obviously bummed that the Packers lost, but nearly as upsetting is any time Skip Bayless gets more fodder to be the biggest troll in the world.
  22. 2016 NFL Playoffs

    I'm sure most Dallas fans are. I bet the Cowboys players are, too, from the comfort of their own couches.
  23. Las Vegas Raiders Concept

    You probably don't need an alternate logo that also contains the main logo.
  24. Las Vegas Raiders Concept

    Because concepts. As for the logo itself, IPD, you'll get better technical advice from others, but are you going for a primary logo? If so, the Raiders Shield is too small. I'd suggest leaving the primary as is, but evolving your LV into a secondary logo/patch. Maybe the interlocking letters inside a logo-less shield? Or the Nevada state outline (it's a bit cliche, but would make sense for a team trying to build a local following).
  25. 2016 NFL Playoffs

    "I wish him the best in his recovery." What the hell is that supposed to mean?
