  1. Las Vegas Thunderbirds Sorry, I'm done now.
  2. I love how the fans are starting to call Foley out on his Army lust and what he considers an "homage" to them. That's like saying "I went to Notre Dame and want to do an homage to my alma mater. How about 'Las Vegas Fighting Irish'?" It's not an homage. Homages are supposed to be subtle. Having said that, I started thinking about this again. I want to do a concept for a Las Vegas NBA expansion team in NBA 2K17. I thought about some new ones: - Las Vegas Roadrunners - Las Vegas Daredevils - Las Vegas Monsters (like Gila monsters) - Las Vegas Lizards (like lounge lizards, or like the animal)
  3. I'm actually quite bummed that Houston got rid of Tal's Hill. The little variation that exists in MLB today is just that -- too little. Why does every CF fence have to be 399 or 400 feet? I'd love to see one field out of 30 that's like 425 feet or farther, like the old Polo Grounds (which was 483 feet to center and between 260-275 down to the fair poles in either RF or LF, respectively). Unique stadiums is part of the charm in baseball. Other sports could take a hint. I really don't think results would change that much... for example, even if one soccer field is larger than the next, the goals are the same size and the rules are the same, so aren't goals scored in the same frequency? And as long as you can't change the dimensions on a whim, it'd be cool. If a poor-passing NFL team suddenly gets an accurate QB and can make the sidelines wider the same season, that wouldn't be fair.
  4. It's ironic that Sale cutting up jerseys will cut into jersey sales.
  5. Some really clever uses of graphics on the cuffs of the shorts, especially in the Grizzlies totem pole design, Clippers semaphore, and Swamp Dragons with the tail!
  6. We've had this thought appear every so often on the forums... one thread even went as far as to combine the various teams' logos on a single graphic (Firefly was the user's name). I like it. Some cities align their colors intentionally (Pittsburgh), while some make it nearly impossible (Boston). Should be fun.
  7. I'd be curious to see other Sonics as well. My idea was since Steve Ballmer bought the Clips, he's got a coup with his Seattle buddies at Microsoft. Magic would be a good contender too.
  8. I recently thought of trying to get into SketchUp again to make baseball stadia with unusual dimensions. I heard there was a video game where you could do this. I'd love to see a modern Polo Grounds or something.
  9. Sorry if this has been posted before... I did a quick search and did not turn up anything, but I thought it'd be fun to have a place where we showcase any successful relocations in NBA 2K16! It's a fairly robust creation kit, and it's predicated strongly on uploading logos from your computer to 2K's website, so the Illustrator folks aren't handcuffed by the in-game logo creation suite. (Jerseys and courts, like I said, are robust and not a handicap at all.) The reason I'm posting this now? After 3 years in MyGM, my Clippers relocation to Seattle was finally approved! Introducing the new and improved SuperSonics (C+C appreciated):
  10. Not to hijack the thread but here is the best and most only arena I ever made in Sketchup... much inferior to your project!
  11. Good call! Sparky, great job with your concepts. I don't like the name "Aces" but your design is very cohesive and makes it work!
  12. While this topic has (rightfully so) gone in the direction of speculation of the team name, I thought it was impressive that they had so many original logos in the ESPN article. They all had thick strokes and were very pictorial, but they had cool colors and were all unique to the NHL, at least at first glance. That's why I love the Flamingos one so much... definitely won't fly (pun intended) in the NHL because it's also a name brand for a casino, but the colors are unique.
  13. Just use the Las Vegas Sin logo if called any of the snake names. (I love Vipers BTW!)
  14. Sorry if this has been posted before. The topic of NHL expansion came up the other night, and it sounds like a vote for a Las Vegas team is on the table for June 22. Leading up to that, ESPN posted this article on possible nicknames and logos. In my opinion, Flamingos would be amazing!
  15. I actually like the new Kings set, "SAC" notwithstanding (I'd like to see "Sacramento" somewhere). Do all new uniforms have "proud tabs" now? Bucks had "Fear the Deer." Not sure off-hand about the Hawks or other new reveals.
