  1. 2019 NHL Winter Classic

    I was literally making a hawks jersey today that looked like yours, but it's red. Oh well. I like it! I was hoping the Bruins would go brown with that design they had in 2016, but they didn't, so I wouldn't mind seeing this. If you're going to keep both black and brown I'd at least put some black in the logo. Blackhawks look good too, a nice break from what's looked like the same uniform for their last three outdoor games.
  2. NHL Predictions: If the Playoffs Started Today

    UPDATE: Based off of standings after Tuesday Night. BACK-TO-BACK: Nashville still appears to be the hottest team in the league right now, boasting a stunning 9-0-1 record in their last ten games. Pittsburgh will also easily overpower Philadelphia and Columbus, propelling them to their third consecutive conference championship. THE CURSE: Nashville sits atop the league at the moment, but Tampa has won both regular season game against the Predators this season. No team in the west seems to be able to stop Nashville, so the Predators will reach the finals only to fail for the second straight year. EARLY EXIT: The division leaders remain the same. If any team is bound to be upset this year, it's the Capitals. Columbus' offense has potential to overpower the crumbling defense of the Capitals, and unless Holtby can regain his footing, it'll be an early trip to the golf course for the Caps.
  3. San Jose Sharks Redesign

    Love it! Curious to see what a black alternate would look like.
  4. What if the NHL playoffs started today? These are my predictions based on the NHL standings after every Tuesday night. Below is my first bracket, 32 days until the end of the season. Now whenever I do my brackets, I always try to make my picks following criteria, based on things that have been consistent over the last several postseasons. 1. BACK-TO-BACK: At least one of the teams in the previous final four returns to the final four the following season. (Pittsburgh 16-17, Bolts 15-16, Rangers 14-15, Blackhawks 13-15) 2. THE CURSE: The president trophy winners don't normally win the Cup. (4 in the last 21 years) 3. EARLY EXIT: Not all four division winners make it past the first round. (Chicago in 17, Florida and Anaheim in 16, Blues in 15, Colorado in 14) 1. BACK-TO-BACK: Nashville has been hot for several months, and after their ninth straight win, it appears they could be the team to beat in the postseason. 2. THE CURSE: It's possible that Tampa Bay could make a return to the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in four years, but after missing a season in the playoffs, it's unlikely. They'll sink when they play Boston in the second round, but it'll be no easy series for the Bruins. 3. EARLY EXIT: Dallas has struggled in past playoff years, and if Vegas has the home ice advantage, it'll be hard to stop them. Los Angeles has also lost each of their three games against Nashville this season, giving up four or more goals in each game. The Blue Jackets are extra hot with the addition of the Breadman, and although they are seriously underrated as they play in the league's toughest division, they'll be no match for Tampa Bay's red hot offense. This brings us to the Devils: if Taylor Hall continues to gain points and the Capitals' defense continues to crumble, the first round could be an upset for the Capitals. Thoughts?
  5. Maple Leafs Stadium Series Prediction

    I wouldn't be surprised if this is what we see, but I'm guessing that the stripes might be a little thicker like the Capitals' jersey.
  6. Flags With Club Logo

    Love all of these! Only complaint is about the loose pixels in the recolored logos, not a big deal but still noticeable. Curious to see what else you have in store!
  7. NHL 2017-18

    As a Caps fan, I'm just happy to finally see a navy blue jersey.
  8. NHL 2017-18

    Someone may have leaked the Caps Stadium Series jersey... https://twitter.com/sad_caps_fan/status/952625790851665920/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.russianmachineneverbreaks.com%2F2018%2F01%2F15%2Ftwitter-user-posts-photo-potential-caps-stadium-series-jersey%2F
  9. NFL Logos by MCrosby - PROJECT COMPLETE

    Was kinda hoping to see an actual Redskins concept, although the one you have is nice. I think the whole naming issue is in the past.
  10. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

  11. NHL Adidas Alternates (Series completed!)

    Love it! Although I would've like to see a shoulder logo, it's still nice and would make a good Winter Classic jersey. Curious to see what you do with Vegas
  12. Detroit Lions Logo Concept

    I'm curious to see what the uniforms would look like but man, this is sick
  13. Vegas Gamblers Basketball

    Actually I'll take back what I said. I feel like vegas gold might clash with the red too much. I think you made the right call.
  14. Vegas Gamblers Basketball

    Love it! If anything, I'd change the shade of gold to Vegas Gold. Looks fine otherwise.
  15. A competition for the competitive. A series of challenges that will bring out the creativity within each competitor. A tournament where only one will emerge victorious. Ladies and gentlemen...the first annual Knockout Games! The Knockout Games require competitors to submit a variety of sports-related concepts that will go head-to-head in 1v1 match-ups. Through a long process and a large number of challenges, the community will decide the eventual winner. Competitors will be paired randomly in 1v1 matches for each round. Each competitor will receive an email informing them of who they will be facing. No one but they and their opponent will know until the voting phase is over. Unless it is necessary, competitors will not face each other more than once. All competitors will be given the same challenge. They will have one to two weeks to submit their concept, depending on the difficulty. If competitors do not submit their concept in time, they will forfeit their matchup for that round. Two days after the submission deadline, the voting phase will begin. Concepts will be shown but competitors' names will not be revealed until after the voting is over. Voting will take place for three days. Voters are allowed one vote per matchup, however they do not have to vote in every matchup. Competitors are not allowed to vote for their own concept. A strike is given to the competitor who loses their matchup. Once a competitor exceeds three strikes they will be eliminated from the tournament. Competitors will also receive a strike if they do not submit a matchup on time. If both competitors in a matchup do not submit on time, they will both receive a strike, no winner will be declared, and their matchup will not be shown during the voting phase. In the event of a tie, the final vote will be decided by a panel of three judges. Scroll down for more details... If an odd number of competitors are eliminated, there will be one unpaired competitor in the next round. In the event that this happens, a wild card will be selected from the previous round's eliminated competitors by the same judging panel as an opponent for the unpaired contestant. Again, more details are below... Want in? Shoot me an email at j4anderes at gmail dot com. Include the subject name Knockout Games and leave me with your CCSLC name. To enter, you must have both an email and a CCSLC account. DEADLINE TO ENTER IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 13TH, AT 6 PM EST. You can also apply to be a part of the judging panel. However, there are some things you should know before you do. You can be both a judge and a competitor. However you will not be able to cast a tie-breaking vote in a matchup that showcases your concept. In that case I will take your place in the voting process for that matchup. If two judges are somehow paired against each other and go to a tiebreaker vote, the third judge will cast the single tie-breaking vote. As a judge you will also be unable to select your concept as a wild card. As a judge, you will only take part in the tie-breaker voting and the wild-card selections. The rest, such as counting votes, making challenges, etc. is up to me, the commissioner. You will not be allowed to vote during the regular voting phase. You can only do so during tiebreaker cases. Please do not apply unless you can make a commitment to this job. Not that it's hard or overly important, but there are things you should keep in mind. There will be little time to cast your vote or make your wild card selections, two days at max. Again, nothing crazy, just something to remember. This is a first come-first serve basis, so if you're one of the first three to apply, you're a judge. Shoot me an email at j4anderes at gmail dot com. Title the subject Knockout Judge and also let me know if you are entering as a competitor. DEADLINE TO APPLY IS SATURDAY, JANUARY 13TH, AT 6PM EST. ******** Good luck to everyone who enters!
