  1. CFL in Halifax coming soon?

    Some sort of tea or blue-gray, or other ocean colour, and another colour that isn't used elsewhere in the league. I think maroon or purple. It would be like a darker Miami look. Are there any cool whale or fish names? Or a type of storm?

    Voyageurs would be a sweet name for a Quebec team.
  3. Major League Rugby

    Also, two teams have released their uniforms for next year.
  4. Major League Rugby

    Beat me to it Kiwi, I came on here to add these! Ontario Arrows (playing an exhibition schedule in 2018, joining 2019) released their new logo. Thought on everything so far: Ontario: Arrows is a decent name, ties into the Avro Arrow as well as First Nations significance. Including the Toronto skyline like they did they must be playing somewhere in the GTA, so maybe they're really trying to bring in all the province's rugby fans. I think a great start would be losing the yellow arrow, seems a bit obvious, as well as clip-art-y. I had the idea of using an inverted arrowhead as a shield shape, placed behind the grey O. Houston SabreCats: Better than Strikers, which sounds like a soccer team, but I think it's one of the weaker names. Logo could be refined using another colour to add some detail or depth, but not a bad concept. First time I've seen the rugby ball shape incorporated like that. Utah Warriors: Cool name, cool colours, looks pretty professional. Glendale Raptors: Not a new team, so it makes sense that they have a pretty strong logo. Glad they kept Raptors for the pro side, it's a better name than Merlins. Seattle Seawolves: I think they knocked it out of the park. Screams Seattle.And out of all them I could that one fitting into any of the big NA leagues and not looking out of place. NOLA Gold: Fairly basic, looks "Mardi-Gras-y" enough. With a name like Gold they aren't limited in the way a lot of other names are, could see some interesting changes down the road if they survive. Austin Elite Rugby: Decent logo, they need a real name though. I'm treating this as a placeholder for now. San Diego Legion: While not the biggest fan of singular-plural team names, at least it's a badass one. The shield font looks a little modern for your typical Roman Centurion type look so I'm curious where they go with it. MLR: Not a huge fan of "Major League- xxxx" stylings, but it beats NRA and NRFL, NRL is taken... so I guess it's the best without getting to out there. The logo itself is pretty solid, the grey bottom half keeps it from being just another red-white-blue logo. I think it would look good to add a maple leaf to the other half of the ball, once a Canadian team joins.
  5. Canadian Football League --> Canadian Rugby League

    First, I joined just to say that I love that you did this. One of my favourite daydreams is that all the CFL teams started a rugby branch. I like Hamilton, and that the tiger stripers are toned down compare to Leicester's. Thirds are supposed to be crazy so no complaints there. EDM, Sask, WPG and TO all look great for the H/A sets. The only thing I'd question is how the sleeve stripes line up with the chevrons. I really like the wings on the shoulders of MTL's third, and the angled stripes on the socks. The Adidas shoulder stripes work well on Sask and Hamilton, but I do get tired of them elsewhere (see below). BC, Calgary, Ottawa I'd lose the sublimating. Although a light grey plaid on OTT might look cool. I like Sask's wheat field. The Schooners are an overall miss for me. I find the waves/map a little clunky. This is my main overall gripe... I get where it's coming from, and it even makes a ton of sense, since the CFL IS with Adidas, using a template, and that IS how Adidas does the super teams. But... that's also why I find the NZ teams to be the most boringly dressed, even when each one on it's own would look great. And that comes out a bit more here, since there are more teams, and it's the whole league. Again, I totally understand why you went that way.
