  1. Third shade is the best, but the first would make a good alternate uniform IMO. Rest of the set looks real nice.
  2. Great to see the Bulldogs put another spike in their collar! That's a good-looking banner Keep up the good work hawkfan!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. but the Angels play in Anaheim
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. branding

    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.
  10. 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....
  11. 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....
  12. 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.
  14. hettinger_rl

    I would agree that the T seems too obvious and overstated. Maybe if you made it a little smaller, thinner, etc. it would work better. Otherwise, this looks really good. I think the cream works well for Texas.
  15. I found that on the teams' Wikipedia pages, which in turn linked me to this Encyclopedia Britannica Article about the NFL team and the MLB team's official history page.
  16. These all look really nice. I especially like what you did with the Cowboys, and the Ravens, Bills, and Packers logos look really cool. I had to look it up, but it turns out both teams were named after their shade of cardinal red.
  17. Great round of playoffs and great work as always. Nice to see teams like Nova Scotia, Long Island, and Milwaukee making deep runs. However, you forgot to mention one of the greatest comebacks ever: Seattle lost 4 games in the first round but still managed to win their series against Chicago. All kidding aside, I love what you're doing here. Keep it up.
  18. I really like the winged helmet idea; I thought that's where you might have been going for the Krewe. I do think the yellow on the helmet is a bit understated, but I don't think the lack of yellow overall is a problem. I think I'd rather see them embrace the green and purple given how unique of a color scheme that is. Looking good as always.
  19. It definitely looks a lot more like a racquetball player this time around. However, I think it could still use some work. First, I know the player is supposed to be in an athletic stance, but at first glance, he looked more hunched-over than anything. Maybe taking the size down a notch and having him stand up a little straighter would help. Also, I know fingers are hard, but his fingers (on the racket hand especially) don't look right. Finally, and this is minor, the silhouette overlaps the text a little bit, and I think it muddies up the look of the logo. Overall, I think it's an improvement over the first logo, at least conceptually; it just needs a little more work.
  20. This is looking really good so far. I would echo @Steelman on all of his points, especially that the front of the uniform is cluttered and the back feels really empty. As for the conference logos, I think they're fine if you want to keep them, but I do think those could work better as a league logo, maybe even the primary. If you do keep those, I would suggest doing something to differentiate between the two conferences, even if it's just swapping the colors on one of them, but if you're going to be recoloring those, I'd suggest going a different direction. (Also, you managed to misspell conference in both of your revised wordmarks.) The Lions look great, really no complaints there (other than the layout of the uniform). I'm excited to see where you take this.
  21. Maybe if you took down the striping on the rest of the design by a notch, the state would feel a little less empty by comparison. Just a thought. These are pretty amazing, though. Props.
  22. You're right, the navy does look better on the helmets. I don't think the navy pops on the royal like the royal does on the navy, and something about the most recent one just seems off. I'd stick with the navy helmet, even if it doesn't fit the mold.
  23. These all look really good; I would say they're better than the real thing. One thing I noticed though: you have kept the helmet color consistent with the rest of the uniform except for the Cowboys, who have a royal uniform but a navy helmet. Is there a reason for that or was it just an "it looks better" kind of thing? Either way, it looks great, just seems inconsistent.
  24. 1981

    Alexander Page was born May 23, 1954 in Lewiston, ME. His family moved to Saint John, NB when he was 7 years old, and he holds dual Canadian and American citizenship. He graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the University of New Brunswick, and when he saw the first arcade games and video game consoles starting to gain traction, he decided to try it out. In 1977, he founded Fundy Games, which has quickly become one of the biggest names in the video game industry thanks in large part to the DreaMaster console and its first game, ROQ. He has fond memories of rooting for the Captains back in Maine, and has rooted for the both the Captains and the Maroons since he moved north. Page's selections: 1. Halifax - With a huge fan base and a stadium already built, the Maritimes can deal with Irving if it means football. 2. Québec - Great sports town, and the rivalry with Montréal is too good to pass up in Page's opinion. 3. Hamilton - Again, the rivalry with Toronto is right there, and Hamilton is too big not to have a team. 4. Regina - Everything seems in place, including yet another instant rivalry. Page loves his rivalries.
