  1. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,

    Anyone? Can I even manage to just annoy someone?
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    If I remember correctly, "NFL Fonts Guy" (yes, I remember his screen name, but I'm just being safe in case he'd prefer to leave the whole incident in the past) was doing pretty much dead-on versions of various sports fonts... not just NFL but NBA, MLB, and dozens of colleges. He didn't attach the actual team name, but gave it sort of a clever name alluding to a secondary nickname, or hometown that left little doubt where it came from. As you explain the copywrite laws above (and I have no reason to doubt you, you seem to know much more about it than I do), it would seem to me that he should've been OK. But one day, the thread just disappeared, and (again, IIRC) he implied he was asked to remove them under what definitely seemed to be a threat.

    Didn't we have a member who was posting versions of team's fonts in the concepts section, and received a notice that he had better remove them or face litigation? (Rhetorical question, because yes... we did.)
  5. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    I'm not sure how prevalent they were across the country, but in SE Mich/ NW Ohio we used to have a store called Value City which was a goldmine for stuff like that. They all went belly up in the early 2000's, but I got a ton of blanks, NFL, NHL, and colleges, dirt cheap back then.

    My assumption is it has at least something to do with who's allowed to customize a jersey, also. It used to be, you saw a lot of blanks (numberless jerseys) which you could get any number put on at your local Mom & Pop sporting goods store... I've got a few older jerseys that I did just that with back in the 90's. Now if you want it to look right, you have to either get it from the NFL shop, or a licensed dealer.

    And, not to turn this into an Art Appreciation lecture (although to be honest, I'm literally writing this after my Art Appreciation class just ended), the Clinton portrait is by the equally amazing Chuck Close.

    I know so called "Fine Art" may not get discussed here often, but Kehinde Wiley is a friggin' genius.

    I had totally blocked that out. Ridiculous.
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    i'm with you. I think that's a pretty nice modern font, with the exception of the "3", which bugs me.

    That's exactly what I was shooting for so it's nice to hear. Thanks!

    Now that they've won the Superbowl in that nasty dark blue-green color this will never happen, but here it is anyway;

    Meh, I forgot about those useless white pants the Giants have brought out. Hurts an otherwise great set.
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars rumored for new uniforms in 2018

    Put me in the camp that believes the Giants just might have the best uniform in the NFL. And the fact that, as stated above, "one has red stripes and numbers and completely void of blue while the other is solid blue with white numbers and completely void of red" (although I imagine you meant "devoid" not "void") is one of the main reasons that uniform is so awesome. Slavish devotion to simple minded continuity can die.

    Honestly, I prefer that to the current helmet by a factor of about 10, just based on color alone.

    This just officially got ridiculous.

    Thankfully. There are no kelly green helmets, disgracefully.
  20. Oldschoolvikings' NFL concepts - Ridiculous Ravens concept added 2/16/18

    Two new ideas for the Jaguars, based on the discussions going on over on the main board. First, a newer look, with the idea of emphasizing teal and gold at home, and re-emphasizing black on the road; Then having finished this one, it occurred to me I could use the same basic idea in a way that's closer to what the Jags have done before; Thoughts and ideas appreciated...

    Unfortunately, "not matte" doesn't necessarily mean "glossy" these days. There are plenty of steps between.

    Holy Snit. OK, we get it, you hate the Patriots. But you have to stop with this nonsense, you're losing whatever credibility you might be holding on to.
