  1. Yea. It's hard to even call Indianapolis an odd duck because if it were odd it'd at least have something you'd free associate the city with. Even the things it should be known for (racing and basketball) are more freely associated with other places (Daytona and New York City). There's not even an ethnicity it's linked to the way Chicago is with the Polish, Brooklyn with Italians, Boston with the Irish, etc. So, I mean, you might as well stick with black and red here. It'd at least be unique in MLB and has represented baseball in Indy for long enough.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    Terrible look for the Mets, but one that could easily work for the Marlins. I mean, if we absolutely MUST ditch teal, that is....
  3. This might be my favorite concept in the entire series. The Pirates brand works insanely well with New Orleans. And they'd be moving to a city where the established colors were still black and gold (albeit a slightly different shade).

    NCAAF Playoff - 8 Team Bracket

    I like a 5-team playoff using the format the NFL did in the 80s. If you finish outside the Top 5 do you really deserve to play for a national championship?

    Potential CFL Halifax Names

    Halifax Maritimes would work for me. Even if it sounds a bit baseball-ish.

    This is an unpopular opinion?

    Albuquerque Invaders -- For NBA 2K18

    I'm just gonna assume these guys moved to be closer to the center of New Mexico's population. ? Great concept, though... alien invasion movies from the 50s and 60s are kinda my thing. So naturally, I love everything about this identity.
  8. Essentially, think about where you see a team's logo the most during a game, and that will tell you. Hockey gets the most elaborate logos, since they take up the entire front of a sweater. Basketball teams don't usually wear logos on their uniforms. This has changed a bit recently, but mostly, center court is the main logo placement. So they're designed to fit the confines of court dimensions... even if those "confines" seem to get larger with the year, if not disappearing altogether. Football teams have helmets. Not quite as large as a hockey sweater, but still a decent amount of "real estate" to play with. Baseball has cap fronts. So they have to be simple and distinct. Possibly why I like baseball uniforms the most. I think it's also notable that colleges that have football tend to have simpler logos than those without. Soccer is the big monkey wrench here. Their logos are displayed small, but tend to be more elaborate. Obviously, the influence of heraldic crests is the big factor here. That said, I actually like the balance that seems to have been struck regarding North American clubs.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Good to see the Brewers having support from the other side of the ferry... even if our cities were rivals come hockey season. I sure do miss the days of the Admirals playing the likes of Muskegon, Kalamazoo, Fort Wayne, and Toledo.

    New Travel (Trvl) Channel Logo

    The idiotic trend of nonsensical spelling for the sake of having a trademarkable brand continues in cable television.
  11. A recoloring of the logos would make sense. They wore colors very similar to the Rangers throughout the 80s and 90s. Let's hope this "remaster" doesn't meant much more than that.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    As a kid, it wasn't spring until I could turn on channel 18 and see these, and occasionally trek down to County Stadium, sit in the left field bleachers and see them in person.
  13. Except I think without the skew, it would like look like something bland and corpoeate trying to cash in on 90s hip hop. I'm not sure this design works nearly as well without it. Love the name too.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Bucks are... interesting. Certainly more in the style of actual 1970s pop art than modern uniform design. I'm gonna wait until I see the shorts for a final judgment. I have a feeling I know the direction they went on those and it could make or break this set for me.

    Different Teams, Same Elements

    As much as the Wisconsin partisan in me would love to yank that from Chicago, I always thought the U of Chicago created it.
