    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    Those light blue wings on the Salt Lake helmet get absolutely lost on that tone of silver.

    Alliance of American Football - Team Names and Logos

    It's a whole gambit of emotion. really creative stuff...really big misses of some great opportunities. Birmingham going with the plain black helmet...expected. However, they come off looking like some generic "final boss" team you'd have to unlock in Madden. ATL not doing the "forward-facing crown" is a bummer Arizona's helmet stripe featuring their "AZ" logo is an awesome and creative surprise. San Antonio's helmet is a mess of elements fighting for attention. Orlando's decal is by the looks of it positioned waaaay too far back on the helmet. I know what they were trying to do, but it's disappointing given their clean uniforms. Memphis' look from top to bottom is top-notch. The Fleet's striping pattern will probably be lost on many folks. They look like walking road-construction warnings. Hopefully the Stallions' colors don't "fight" each other in real life the way that they are doing so in the pictures. Not enough contrast between the silver and the blues.

    USL 2 Team Taking Suggestions for New Name

    Something to keep in mind for those of you outside the area (read: most of you). Keeping the name "Michigan" Bucks may sound fine...but historically has been an automatic "two strikes" against teams hailing from Flint. Flint residents are still very proud of their city...problems and all. Teams often when they relocate to Flint will keep or revert to "Michigan" in their name as a way to pad losses should the team fail. That way...they can move the team to another Michigan city and not have to incur and rebranding. This happened most recently with the hockey team that predated the Flint Firebirds, the "Michigan Warriors" and the indoor soccer team...which didn't even bother to change its name from "Detroit Waza Flo" despite playing in Flint. Having the name "Flint" in the name was a huge sticking point for focus groups when the Plymouth Whalers moved here to become the Firebirds. Saying "Michigan" instead of "Flint" conveys to Flint residents that the ownership is not invested and is already looking to move elsewhere. It'd be a wise move for the ownership, if they are going to keep the name "Bucks," to switch "Michigan" to "Flint"...history of the club be damned.

    USL 2 Team Taking Suggestions for New Name

    As a resident of the area surrounding Flint, I suggest "Flint Strikers FC"...the name sounds dull but has a double meaning...as it is a soccer term as well as a remembrance of the famous Flint Sit Down Strike of 1936-37 that was the catalyst for the unionization of American Auto Workers...and lead to the UAW as we know it. Flint pays tribute to this strike every year with celebrations and even has a large section of their local history museum dedicated to it. I suggested the colors of red & white with blue and "chrome" trim. While a bland scheme at the surface...each one of those colors has its own special tie-back to the strike itself: Red for the ladies "Red Hat Society" that supported the striking workers from outside the factory. They would break windows and hurl supplies to the workers on strike inside the plant. White for the "white shirt day" that the UAW celebrates every year in remembrance of the strike. Blue for (hopefully) a blue collar on the jerseys "Chrome" trim for the obvious automotive symbolism I suggested that all home kits be white jersey with red/gray trim, red shorts, with a blue collar.

    2018 CFL Uniforms

    The CFL disappoints me in the fact that, aside from newer teams like the RedBlacks, they are an entire league based upon classic, "powerhouse" looks...that simply keeps tweaking and toying with those looks until they've been ruined. They try to come across as hip and cool with all these weird variations for their historic teams...but in the end just look like Grandma and Grandpa dressing like hipsters.

    Classic/Traditional High School Football Uniforms

    META: A thread about "mascots in logos wearing different/altered versions of the actual uniforms" would be an interesting and challenging discussion.

    Montreal Alouettes teasing re-brand

    I like the concept, but the historical logos as smaller decals on the side clutter it up. Your helmet should not double as a logo timeline. EDIT - the historical logos kind of remind me of when, during College Senior Bowls of the 90's, the players would swap decals with other players and slap them on their helmet for the game.
  11. I can't help but think this is something that Ted Lasso, American Head Coach of THE Tottenham Hotspurs, would have come up with.

    MLS Kits 2019

    ...the uneven and asymmetrical nature of the marks on the fur and face absolutely smells of downloading a comp from istock or shutterstock and autotracing the image into vector.

    Introducing the Cedar Rapids River Blecch

    I like the elements shown separately, but for some reason not together. It's a nice, polished logo...don't get me wrong...it just seems like a case of the client saying, "hey...please combine Concept 1 and Concept 2 together."

    Unpopular Opinions

    The NBA's introduction of, and subsequent allowance of otherwise "off-brand" jerseys for their respective teams - diverting away from just "home" and "away" denotations and the color schemes thereof - is a slippery slope of cash-grabbing brand dilution that is not unlike the jersey stunts we have seen in Minor League baseball. ...Change my mind.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    This jersey started my love affair with uniforms and sports design as a whole. First jersey of any sport I ever owned. I thought it was crazy awesome that a team wore a color other than white at home. The golden yellow jerseys really popped against the dingy white of the old Pacific Coliseum. I was so excited to wear it the day after my parents bought it for me that I got up in the middle of the night, put it on, and slept in it until morning.
