  1. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Maybe I should have capitalized Navy, but I thought people would remember that style of helmet they started. I take responsibility for the confusion.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I interrupt your regularly scheduled FBS news to bring you the most bizarre helmet you will ever see (on the right). A white helmet PLUS grey text PLUS a navy-esque block of color PLUS a stripe. It's like all the trends from the past 2 years put together.
  3. 2017/18 Soccer Kits

    These are pretty snazzy. The 90's look feels right here.
  4. Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    Why are they eliminating a fairly unique color in the NBA in light blue? Now they will look too much like a team IN THE NEXT STATE OVER!!! I knew a change was coming, just not one that made them more generic. Just please keep the skyline.
  5. NHL 2017-18

    My takes- -The Avs are quite refreshing. A modern take on a classic. Great upgrade. -Edmonton is actually fine. Maybe royal could have been better... but still... -New Jersey looks like a team that got their uniforms from Nike's 2014 Olympics set. Very dissapointing. -Vegas wearing grey is quite nice. It does add a good variety of colors to the NHL jerseys. -Nashville went from busy to very bland. This is better, but not ideal.
  6. Major League Baseball

    Great looking so far! May I put in a few suggestions? -Maybe add a solid blue cap on the Braves road. It will probably flow better with the darker look. -Add more white to the Reds road to help break of the gray and red. It looks a bit rough right now.
  7. NFL 2 - Team Finals - BILLINGS

    Grays. It certainly flows better than Billies does.
  8. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    HAHAHA I feel sorry for the Oregon fans who had to say that last year. And for any future fan who has to say that in any future year. It sounds like Oregon took that one line from the full motto and said "Hey Nike, we look even more like bust buds forever!" No, really, it sounds like that happened, "Do Something" sounds like a lazier and funnier version of "Just Do It".
  9. Seattle NBA Brand Discussion

    We could go on and on about possible team names, but there is and will always will be one name for a Seattle NBA team: The SuperSonics (or however it is spelled). The NBA owns the right to the team name (I belive), fans will not except other names, and well, there is already a sour taste from when the original Sonics left for OKC. I just can't imagine a situation when a team in Seattle would be named something else. IF there would ever be another team name, I think something coffee related would be cool, for example: Rush or Energy. Maybe even something like Tridents could be interesting.
  10. NBA Expansion Project- San Diego

    Later post than expected, but without further adieu I give you the next team: San Diego has a notorious history of losing teams in professional basketball, but the recent departure of the Chargers, could mean new life for a new NBA team. The Admirals name and colors are based off of naval and maritime ties to the city. They will also play at the Valley View Casino Center. Logos are mainly Navy-based. Simple idea, but a bold new look. The font blends a traditional and modern block font to tie up the look. The courts are also fairly simple; there is also a "Hardwood Classic" court as well. The uniforms are meant to be modern. The angles of the stripes are derived from the chevron on the logo, and from different aspects of naval vessels and aircraft. The "Hardwood Classic" is a throwback to the San Diego Sails of the ABA. Hopefully this about hits it on the nail. San Diego in my opinion is one of the most underrated cities to host a professional sports team, and I think this look helps them stand out from the crowd. Cheers til next time!
  11. NBA Expansion Project- San Diego

    The NBA is on its way to becoming one of the world's pop culture icons, and throughout its history it has had plenty of teams vie for being the best. This series is more or less of a "What if the NBA wanted to expand?". It seems likely that the NBA could decide to expand soon, and I wanted to see what some of these teams could look like. Each division will receive a new team, based on certain qualifications, history, and geography. There is a total of 6 teams, each with a distinctive brand. Some teams call back to older days, while others bring a new look to the table. So, let's begin. Without a doubt, Seattle had their team wrongfully stripped from them. So, naturally, they are the team to start with. Currently, they have an aging KeyArena. but Seattle is so iconic, they could probably last a few years there. Logos are simple, but blend modern and traditional elements. A new font epitomizes the Sonics name, as well as the updated color scheme, featuring a tweaked dark green, and a brand new shade of *ahem* volt yellow. However, the old skyline logo has returned; a simple emblem of the city. Courts are also fairly simple with some modern additions. There is an alternate court for their "Hardwood Classic" uniforms. The uniforms are meant to be an evolution of the team's arched stripe front; this time it is straight, but with a more modern stripe to match the modern look. White home, green road, a (probably controversial) yellow alternate, with a "Hardwood Classic" combining eras of the team's previous run. I am not the most pleased with this look, but I am open to options. Next team will be up tomorrow evening at the soonest. Cheers!
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    Honestly, I didn't think WSU needed to change anything from their old set. I (and I am probably in the minority for this) loved the 2 grays they used. They both worked well. now all character is vacuumed out of the set. Especially on those grays, no red makes it look out of place. These are just... dumb. On the bright side, at least they still have an original font.
  13. Lakeland Magic

    At this point, NBA teams slapping their name all over their ahem "G-League" affiliates has become extremely annoying. It is uninspired, and to me it says "hey, we don't care what is good about your city, look at us, the NBA team" which makes it more of a selling point to the NBA team than their developmental affiliate. It is almost like they don't want us to care about the G-League team. C'mon! Make some nice minor-league team names to increase pride! Go back to the good old days! See! Do this! An actual name that would please both sides of the party! Good name BTW. Love the tie-in to the fishing industry. On another note, the logo is alright. It does not look like an overly forced NBA team logo. It is just... bland and generic.
  14. Scrubs in Stars' Jerseys

    Frank Tripucka/Peyton Manning. Both are actually in the Bronco's Ring of Fame, but Tripucka is the lesser known of the two. Manning had to ask Tripucka to use the number 18. TJ Rubley used to be the offensive coordinator at my high school.
  15. Lions New Logo and Uniforms 2017

    Honestly, I don't often have problems with "Nike-Speak" as long as the details are logical and coherent with the rest of the uniform. Take the chromed/silver facemasks for example: I felt like they were going with a grey or silver facemask, and the chromed-out look, which is no doubt inspired by the old motor industry of Detroit, looks like it will flow well into the rest of the uniform. I still have my doubts, but *almost* anything they go with should be better than their current mess.
