  1. 2016 NHL Off-Season Thread

    Better nickname: Pizzarena or The Oven?
  2. The Shield is the New Roundel

    Absolutely. Shields and crests are the "new" hotness... Just like they were in good ol' 1500s
  3. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    So far, we haven't even seen an actual digital copy of the logo yet. Chill. I like the original logo, but some folks here are pretending that it's without (major) flaws. The truth is that it's a very 90s, hyper-aggressive logo that is overly detailed. It's also illustrated in this weird, angular manner without many curves... which is strange when you think about it, because a cougar/panther is a very smooth and sleek animal. It worked with the original uniforms because of the angular jersey design, but when the team moved on from those uniforms in the mid 00s, it didn't work nearly as well. However, it's pretty obvious in my opinion that the team needs a fresh, cohesive restart. They've been floundering both on the ice and aesthetically for over a decade now. Even before that, they flirted with the panther breaking a hockey stick variation, flip-flopping between red and navy uniforms, and then they had that weird fling with light blue a few years back. They've tried to make the old logo work within an identity for the last decade (even tried updating the head for the light blue alt jersey), but nothing's clicked. Now they've finally got a talented nucleus of players for the future... The time has come to unshackle themselves from their forgettable two-decade existence. The new design is a very nice, regal depiction of a Panther. It even looks like they kept some of the strange angular points as a nod to the original, which is a nice touch. And being that we haven't seen anything else, I'm going to reserve judgement.

    Sporting KC, Seattle, and San Jose are the class of the league, IMO.
  6. U.S. Soccer New Logo?

    Everything about the new logo is forced. That's a much more acceptable solution you posted. I've just found it shocking how subpar all the recent logoworkcoming out of Nike has been over the last 2 years.
  7. Behind the Avatar (a podcast)

    I can honestly say thatDoug is a great role model for all the youngsters on the board. All the feedback and concepts and contests he brings to the table, he does with the intention of helping others first and foremost. He's just a really down to earth guy. Thanks for doing this series,CS; it's a really cool idea.

  10. Super Bowl 50 Aesthetics

    My issue with theold Broncos look is that the light blue visuallycompetes with the orange too much. There's too much saturation and not enough contrast between the two colors. The darker blue fixes that issue and allowsthe shade of orange shine.

    Nothing says Columbus like maize and (light) blue. Seriously though, if they wanted to change things up, wouldn't a scarlet and grey kit sell like bonkers there?

    THE EXPANSE is easily the best space operato come to TVsince Firefly. Highly, highly recommended.
  14. Let The Hot Stove Heat Up: 2015-2016 MLB Offseason

    Love the move. I'm gonna go buy a HotNReady on principle alone (I'm sure as hell not going to eat it).
