  1. I think that's why they lost. They were wearing red shirts against the Redshirts. That's just asking for it.
  2. No, wait, I've got it: every team in white won. Seriously, though, these quarterfinals couldn't have made me a whole lot happier. Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Colorado all losing over the span of two days? You've outdone yourself, Veras.
  3. Me, upon first reading this post: Hey, look at that! The Caps are in the playoffs! Me, several seconds later: Oh , they have to play the Cents, don't they. All I ask is that somebody beat Pittsburgh.
  4. What if you used bass clefs? That might work better than the staff lines or the feathers there. (As a violist, I really want to try to work the alto clef in there but I don't think it'll work lol) I will say that on the Pens logo, the wing covers up the keystone and sort of turns it into a half-trapezoid. Not sure how to fix it, and it still carries the idea, just kind of bothered me a little. Other than that, these are all really awesome; keep it up.
  5. Man, this should be fun. Good luck to the Big Dozen.
  6. I like the idea of throwing back to those uniforms, but (at least the way you've done it here) it reminds me way too much of the 49ers. I really like the rest of the set though.
  7. Why not both? Three leagues seems like it would be kinda difficult in terms of a World Series, but with four, it would be much more manageable. I don't think there's any reason why you couldn't add both leagues, unless you're worried that it would become unmanageable or something. Just a thought.
  8. Just out of curiosity, what would an all-dark red uniform look like, or maybe a bright red jersey with dark red pants? Might be interesting looks.
  9. What do I win? These look great. I really like what you've got so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going. The one thing I have to say is I don't think the city of Anaheim would be very happy with you calling the Angels "Los Angeles".
  10. Seriously, though, this is pretty cool. I've always liked tiny island countries like Tonga, and you're off to a great start with this one. I will say that the sponsor logo looks kinda low on the chest, but overall, I like it.
  11. Third shade is the best, but the first would make a good alternate uniform IMO. Rest of the set looks real nice.
  12. Great to see the Bulldogs put another spike in their collar! That's a good-looking banner Keep up the good work hawkfan!
  13. Through the legs of Buckner... you're killing me, man! Thanks for sending the Dogs to the Finals anyway hopefully they get the job done this time!
  14. Found this documentary of the 1984 Seahawks. At 5:31, you can see Luke Prestridge punting from - and Paul Johns returning to - a blank end zone.
  15. Was bored; did some research: In the 10 seasons that the NFL playoffs included 10 teams and went a full 16 games (1978-1981, 1983-1986, 1988-1989), 39 teams finished within a half game of 9-7 (either 9-7, 9-6-1, or 8-7-1), and 18 of them made the playoffs. Fun anomaly: no team finished with any of those three records in 1985. I did not include the 1982 season, in which the season ended after 9 games due to a player strike and featured a 16-team playoff tournament. I also left out the 1987 season, which also featured a player strike, resulting in one week of games being cancelled and three weeks being played by replacement players, which seemed to dramatically increase parity, as 15 of the league's 28 teams finished between 6-9 and 9-6. It is important to note that the AFA has slightly different seeding rules than the NFL. However, only 3 9-7 teams would have bumped a better team out of the playoffs under AFA rules: the 9-7 New York Giants earned the 5 seed in the NFC in 1981; under AFA rules, the 10-6 Denver Broncos would have made the playoffs instead. In 1989 this happened twice, as the Houston Oilers and Pittsburgh Steelers claimed the AFC's two wildcard spots at 9-7 while the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers finished 10-6. Ultimately, this means that if the NFL played under AFA rules, 15/39 of these teams would have made the playoffs, compared to 1/12 in 3 seasons in the AFA. Sorry for nerding out, but I like weird statistics like this.
  16. but the Angels play in Anaheim
  17. I really like the double purple; I don't like the double gold. I think that, along with all the small, intricate details on the base of the crown, makes the logo look really busy. I think if you simplified that a bit, you'd have a really good set. The uniform design is really solid.
  18. These are all really well done. I like the new updates, but I think the Knights alt looks better with the star on the front. I don't think the helmet translates well to neon.
  19. nfl2 update

    I don't think the bat wings on the dark green background work very well. It's sort of getting lost in the end zones and on the alt helmet to the point where it's hard to tell what it is. Other than that though, this series is pretty close to perfect. Keep it up.
  20. Congrats on three years. That's a lot of time to put in to something that doesn't exist, but trust me when I say I've enjoyed reading it all. I was really pulling for Zeke and the Ghosts there, but props to Minnesota for outplaying them. Looking forward to next year - hopefully the Caps can be a tiebreaker or two more relevant....
  21. You can tell Cincinnati hasn't been in the playoffs recently; you must be out of practice typing them into the playoff picture. Good to see them get the win, even if their name was misspelled. Also, LaDell Throckmorton might be my new favorite player just because of that name. Kinda sucks that he's a Miner though....
  22. Man, that white helmet looks good. Maybe it belongs further down the line, but don't give up on that idea. Beautiful.

    I think you could make the T work if it was more of a shape and less of a block letter, if that makes sense. Kinda like that patch of white on Bevo's forehead. I don't like the star at all, but I do think it looks good blank and it might sit better with people if it was simpler and didn't have as much going on.
