  1. Favorite Goalie Masks of All Time

    I’ll take almost any mask from the 80s over the airbrushed graffiti you see today. Back then: Now:
  2. Look at that... after all the knee-jerk reactions, people are starting to come around. However... WHY ARE YOU HIGHLIGHTING THE WRONG GOLD WITH SOME DECAL EFFECT?
  3. This is so excellent... The only thing that slightly irks me is that the new darker shade of orange doesn't compliment the current shade of aqua as the old (Tennessee Volunteer) orange did. Don't get me wrong, the moving back to a more red-orange color was far and away the right move; I just would have liked to have seen them go a shade lighter (like 1645 instead of 1655) so the aqua and coral have a little more contrast. On the throwbacks with the darker aqua jerseys (at least, I think they are slightly darker, maybe @BrandMooreArt can confirm that for me), the new/original orange looks phenomenal... but maybe that's the road the Dolphins go down next time.
  4. Good catch. That’s not the most coherent set of tweets.
  5. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    It’s really hard to butcher a block font. It’s a solid and safe option, especially if the look you are trying to go for is more conservative. It also ensures that the numbers are immediately identifiable for fans, coaches, refs. Custom fonts can be better than block fonts or add unique character to the uniform. However, there’s also the potential for being unreadable, confusing, or poorly designed. So ultimately it depends on which custom font you’re talking about... I think the majority of people here are cool with fonts like the Texans, Falcons, Bears, Seahawks, Vikings, etc... but if you’re going to argue that the Bucs, Titans, or Browns numbers are better than block numbers ONLY because they are unique, then that’s not a wise position to take.
  6. Tradition Evolved: Tennessee Titans Unveil New Uniforms

    I don’t want discourage you because what you’re attempting to do is noble and good practice as a designer... but you’re fixing some problems by creating new ones. The angled bends in middle of the numerals stylistically clash with the straight lines along the sides. It is very reminiscent of the Bucs’ numerals, which are the ugliest numerals currently in use in professional sports. The problem isn’t with you... sometimes a bad number set is just a bad number set, regardless of how much effort is put into fixing them.

    Seahawks definitely have worn grey uniforms on the road
  8. I don’t get it... what’s funny about this?
  9. The new numbers would be an upgrade. However, the hate for the old numbers is far too strong... Number sets worse than the Titans’ old/current ones: Bucs Jags Dolphins Eagles Ravens Browns Chargers Cardinals Broncos ...and you could also make a case against Steelers, Lions, Vikings, Bengals, and Seahawks as well.
  10. https://sports.vice.com/en_ca/article/mb5mzb/nhl-rule-changes-to-fix-a-league-thats-broken Understanding that this is a non-serious article, I'm in favor of 90% of the suggestions. A few of my personal favorites:
  11. 2018 FIFA World Cup

  12. CONCACAF unveils new official logo

    I like it. Will look great as a patch on the kits. My only major quibble is that CONCACAF is an acronym, and having only the first letter capitalized makes it look like a word.
  13. NFL 2018 changes

    Some of ya’ll are crazy. If I can’t see that candy apple red in the bright California sun, then it’s not the 49ers.
