    New Logo for Regal Cinema

    Downgrade. I actually liked the old Regal logo. The new typeface seems awfully dated to me, and the logo itself is an awfully oblique reference to a crown - kind of a wasted opportunity given their name.
  2. In fairness, the Red Sox have been in the World Series far more recently than the Yankees, and have won three World Series to the Yankees' one so far this century. The "Yankees win all the time" trope hasn't really been accurate since the mid-2000s, which (hate to say) is a long, long time ago now.

    2019 MLB Changes

    That's the absolute ideal Cubs road uniform. Perfect color balance, an attractive font, and historical relevance.

    Which MLB Playoff Team Has the Best Uniform?

    1. Yankees . . . . . . . . 2. Dodgers 3. Red Sox 4. Athletics 5. Cubs 6. Astros 7. Indians 8. Braves 9. Rockies 10. Brewers If the Brewers went back to their rightful royal blue and athletic gold, they'd at least shoot up to #7 on this list. Pretty solid crop of uniforms there. The Rockies' Times New Roman font bothers me a ton, and the Brewers are painfully dated at this point. Outside of that, all strong sets.

    The 2018 MLB Tiebreaker Logos

    From a branding perspective, you're absolutely right, but I have to admit, the pedant in me is annoyed by the fact that these logos are part of the postseason package, but are for what's technically a regular season game.

    Minor League Baseball News

    With all these changes in AAA affiliations, I tried to create a 'platonic ideal' of AAA affiliates, with the intent of minimizing distance from each ML team to their AAA affiliate. Think I did pretty well with it. AAA Team ML Affiliation Albuqueque Arizona Buffalo Toronto Charlotte Miami Columbus Cleveland Durham Washington El Paso San Diego Fresno Los Angeles (2) Gwinnett Atlanta Indianapolis Chicago (2) Iowa Minnesota Las Vegas Los Angeles (1) Lehigh Valley Philadelphia Louisville Cincinnati Memphis St. Louis Nashville Chicago (1) New Orleans Tampa Bay Norfolk Baltimore Oklahoma City Kansas City Omaha Milwaukee Pawtucket Boston Reno Oakland Rochester Pittsburgh Round Rock Texas Sacramento San Francisco Salt Lake City Colorado San Antonio Houston Scranton New York (1) Syracuse New York (2) Tacoma Seattle Toledo Detroit The Florida teams, by necessity, get a bit screwed, since there's no AAA teams anywhere close to them. The San Diego/El Paso combo is by far the worst, but some southwestern ML team was inevitably going to draw the short end of the stick. Other than that, almost every affiliate would be a few hours drive or a couple hours flight away, tops. No Fresno-to-DC affiliations, at least. ?

    Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    Good lord, these MNF graphics on ESPN are hideous. Way too bright, reads very blurry from a distance, and commands way too much attention. Whoever designed this didn't get the "flat graphics" memo from like, 8 years ago, did they?
  8. Yeah, Real never makes sense for an American club. There's no royalty in America. It wouldn't make any more sense in Miami than it does in Salt Lake. "International" actually fits Miami to a tee. Having the name in Spanish does too. It's the unofficial capital of Latin America and has a huge Hispanic population. This name actually fits Miami like a glove, unlike most MLS names.
  9. I don't think that "Pigeons" or "Reds" are meant to fill the same functionality as "Sounders" or "Timbers." The latter are the official names of those clubs; the former are just nicknames that have been adopted informally over the years. It's like the difference between "Yankees" and "Bombers," "Canadiens" and "Habs." No, the average person in NYC will have no clue what you're talking about if you ask about the "Pigeons," but they'd probably also do a double-take if you ask them about the "Bombers" without first referring to the Yankees (and might promptly have you arrested in our post-9/11 world ?). But most New Yorkers with even a passing knowledge of MLS would know what you're talking about if you said "N-Y-C-F-C," just like anyone in NYC knows exactly who the "Yankees" are.

    The Panthers should move to the blue jerseys full time, and make black a trim color only:

    Soda/Pop/Branding Discussion & News Thread

    I'd hope - and guess - that they won't change the branding much. They have to know that part of Moxie's niche appeal is its historic branding.

    New Library Of Congress logo / branding

    Feels like they're trying to mimic the Whitney's incredible branding, and failing miserably at it:

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    Watching that video makes me extraordinarily happy that I wasn't alive in 1985. Can't say I realized that Kiss had already ditched the makeup by that point though.

    New York Jets are confirmed to be getting new uniforms in 2019

    That might be the most overrated color scheme on this board. It's possible (though not easy) to make a two-tone green look good, if one is strictly a tertiary trim color. But the Irish rainbow? It's rightfully consigned to the same 1980s dustbin as gigantic hair, Reaganism, and KISS.

    MLB changes 2018?

    The Orioles' Players Weekend jerseys are nothing short of blinding. I thought it was bad last night, but seeing these in the daylight is even worse. I think I might go blind watching this game. I also don't like how the black wordmark against the orange background - the black wordmark becomes blurry at any sort of a distance. Needs a white outline to set it off.
