    Atlanta Falcons Logo Concept

    The Falcons are overdue for a fresh look. In my opinion, their old look wasn't a bad one, but Arthur Blank wanted to forge a new winning identity, so I get why the brand was changed. It's unfortunate that such a classic and strong logo had to fall victim to association to decades of losing. My idea is to go back to the old branding, but not all the way. I kept the current forward tilt of the current logo, as well as the aggressive bird's eye and overall feel to the classic logo. I did some styling to the wing feathers for a more aerodynamic look, and updated the bird's head and beak to look more like a bird of prey than the old, docile head of the classic logo. I may play around with helmet/uniform concepts along this line, so stay tuned! Here are the old and current logos for reference:
  2. So I've finally done something I've been pondering about for the past year or so. I made an entire fantasy football league where each team is made up only from players in a given state/region. It's a different way of using fantasy and it seemed like something that could be interesting to see as the season played out. I went through pro-football-reference.com and looked through each player birthplace states to find players for each team. The beginning rosters were not permanent, I have changed each variously throughout the year as I found out some players produce more points than others. Each Wednesday I go through and edit each teams rosters and it's actually been quite interesting to watch week to week. Here's a list of the team I decided to use: East Division: Dixieland Rebels (Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) Florida Hurricanes Georgia Swampers Great Lakes Bucks (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin) Mid-East Islanders (Delaware, D.C., Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia) New England Pilgrims (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont) New Jersey Sea Dragons Pennsylvania Colonials West Division Big Sky Ranchers (Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington) California Surfers Great Plains Bison (Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma) International Travelers (All non-USA areas) Louisiana Gators Ohio Harvest Rocky Mountain Bighorns (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming) Texas Gunslingers Here's a look at the current standings. It may surprise you how each region is doing, as well as what players are on each team and how each team did against each other. http://games.espn.com/ffl/standings?leagueId=704917&seasonId=2018 Let me know what you think of this little experiment, or if you know of any improvements I could make for next season.
  3. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  4. Maybe there is hope after all! Crossing fingers it goes back to the traditional look... Tony Grossiā€Verified account @TonyGrossi 11m 11 minutes ago Dee Haslam confirmed to me another full # Browns uniform re-do could be in the works soon as new window opens in 2020.

    An Eagles Jersey I've Never Seen

    Has anyone seen this before. BTW, this is one of my favorite TV preachers whose church is in Chicago and grew up in Canada.https://1drv.ms/u/s!Av7Z8KsJmndYmkr67J0JV6nbyzik

Now that the Super Bowl Field Database thread has run its course until January, I will be doing alternate Super Bowl fields using the teams that lost the conference (or league) championships, or even some teams that lost in the playoffs earlier than the conference title if requested. Since these games never happened, I can take more input on what people would like to see in a teams endzone, especially for teams that hadn't made a Super Bowl during a particular era. In the Super Bowl database thread I mentioned I would go in reverse order for these fields, but now I'm thinking it makes more sense to go chronologically. So here is Super Bowl I, the Dallas Cowboys vs Buffalo Bills. And as I said before, endzone designs (mostly color schemes) are not set in stone here, so suggestions are welcome.
  7. Hey guys, got some NFL concepts I have been working on. I used my simplified variation of the GUD template. Let me know what you think and what I should improve on.

    Dallas Texans 1952

    Just playing around as I only have basic software to work with. But this came out pretty good. Could only find a small Texans logo and a pennant photo to work with. If anyone has already updated these, I'd like to see your work .

    New York Jets 2019 Concept

    With the announcement that the Jets will be wearing new uniforms next year I thought it topical to have a go at a concept. Any C&C will be well received as always. New York Jets Logo The iconic Jets logo has been sharpened and made to look more like the silhouette a football and less like an actual egg. The 'Jets' script remains. Home and Road The helmet is based on the '78 - '89 helmet. The uniforms again are based on every iteration of Jets uniform. The Kelly Green from '63 - '97 With the sleeves I wanted to combine the current sleeves with the striping from the '78 - '97 jerseys. The stripes on the pants and socks aim to create a balance across the uniform. The Road uniform's combination of white/green/white is based on the '90 - '96 road uniform. Color Rush The Color Rush uniform replaces the white face mask, white sleeves and white stripes on the pants with Hunter Green (Jets current green). This is the only time the Jets will wear the green/green/green combination. Throwback Due the NFL rule on one helmet the throwback could only be the '78 - '89 or the '90 - '97 uniforms. The '90 - '97 uniforms have totally unnecessary highlights of black in them so I settled for the '78 - '89 uniforms. I hope you all enjoy.
  10. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)

    New York Jets // CrownCorvus

    The Jets USA Today blog had an offer for fans to design their ideas for what the Jets will/should do when they get new uniforms next season. This was my entry. The new Primary logo brings back a modified version of the 80s futuristic jet logo but places it in the oval that's been part of the Jets identity from jumpstreet. Double Green was a happy accident when I was trying to incorporate the Titans gold I selected the wrong oval from a previous layer and it showed a Kelly outline instead of Gold. The decision to use a Kelly Outline with Hunter interior rather than the reverse came from the Color Rush jerseys as a lighter outline seemed to give a sort of shine to me. The main inspiration from the color choices in the striping came from the Jets color rush which is one of the best in the league in my opinion. While the green pants are shown with the home greens, that would be a rarity to with but the road whites could pair with the whites or greens.

    NY Jets

    im hoping when the Jets roll out new unis next year, there wont be any drastic changes. i think they have a great foundation and need to take the same approach as the Lions and Vikings; just put a new spin on the classic. i'd love to see them adopt a new green that isn't Kelly Green. it's a little too expected, so my choice is "Bright Emerald" which is a name i totally just made up, but at least its unique in the NFL. i think the solve for some of these shoulder stripe issues they have now is to move it all down the sleeve. it's important that the contrast areas are bold and impactful, so i would expand that stripe element outside the shoulder seams just a little (think of the Browns or Seahawks stripe technique). finally, have to make the NY-oval the primary logo. large, bold shapes fit this design much better than the overly detailed logo they have now. i always like to think of the alternates when making new uniform decisions too. considering the leagues 1 helmet rule, any alternate would have to work with a white shell. i didn't want to add a black or gray jersey or anything too out of character here, so my alternate option is a throwback. the 1963 uniform gives people something they haven't seen in a long time and provides a darker green jersey option that fans would be more accustomed to.
  13. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.

    2018 NFL Redesigns (19/32)

    I posted an NFL concept series like this three years ago but I don't believe I ever finished it. I've been updating a few of my concepts recently though and thought I'd make it a complete series. First up Tampa Bay and Tennessee. With Tampa Bay I just want to invite more red on to their road jerseys as well as make the alarm clock numbers look a little less like alarm clock numbers. I was excited when I heard Tennessee were getting new uniforms but I think they tweaked too much. They do need to modernise the shoulder yoke but Columbia blue suits them better than navy and white helmets look better than navy ones. Used a bolder number font too. Updated list: Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins New England Patriots (V.2) Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals Houston Texans Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Oakland Raiders Dallas Cowboys Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers Tampa Bay Buccaneers Arizona Cardinals LA Rams San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks (V.2)

    San Francisco 49ers Concept Logo

    Hello! My first post here and of course would love to hear your thoughts. I'm slowly becoming a niners fan?? but their current logo just doesn't do it for me so I had to do something. It's just looks very dated to me. Anyways, I also played around with some wordmarks to go with it, but figured I'd get the general idea out there first to see if there was any interest. Check it out and, please, let me know what you think! Thanks!

    The NFL (8/32; Patriots added)

    To kick this series off, I'm going with the Dolphins, Titans and Jaguars since those are the teams that will soon unveil new designs in the real world. (Please hold template requests, I will provide at end of the series in SVG format) THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE BY BRAVE-BIRD 08 MIAMI DOLPHINS For Miami I wanted to focus on using layers of white and dark grey to mimic an actual dolphin, while letting a more vibrant teal and shade of orange pop off the uniform. I've seen a lot of Miami concepts in the past use the sunburst as a focal point of the design, so I wanted to go in a different direction and use the swooping feel of the logo to tie the look together. The helmet is much more modern iteration, while the pants are intended to echo the feel of the helmet as well. ALTERNATES ONE | ALTERNATES TWO | ALTERNATES THREE Thanks for viewing! Next up: Tennessee Titans
  17. I have been snooping around on here for a while and I am ready to give it a shot. Because I am getting on Spring Break right now, I decided I would do a project. I am going to be refreshing and redesigning many big four sports teams. Here's a list: MLB Baltimore Orioles Tampa Bay Rays (Page 2) Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Houston Astros Los Angeles Angels Oakland A's Texas Rangers New York Mets (Page 1) Philadelphia Phillies (Page 1) Cincinnati Reds Pittsburgh Pirates Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants NHL Boston Bruins New York Islanders New York Rangers Washington Capitals Los Angeles Kings (Page 2) San Jose Sharks NFL Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers Kansas City Chiefs (Page 2) New York Jets Indianapolis Colts Green Bay Packers Washington Redskins NBA Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Orlando Magic (Page 1) Dallas Mavericks Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Lakers Utah Jazz (Page 2) Here's the first team Team: Philadelphia Phillies League: MLB Reason for Update: Too much for too little The old Phillies logo is just too busy for no reason. I got rid of the baseball field outline and the underline. C&C Apperciated. Next team will be the Mets so stay tuned!

    Minor League Football

    I've been toying with this project on and off for years. It's something I do every now and again to unwind, and I really wish I put more priority on it, but I digress. Anyway, I've always felt the NFL has demonstrated a need for a minor league. Arguably, the NCAA fills that need, but while college football no doubt produces talent, the NFL lacks the ability to send players back to the minors. Further, I think we may be reaching a point where the NCAA is becoming obsolete. From television contracts, to video games, to merchandise, NCAA football generates billions in revenue. And yet only a small fraction of schools actually reap a profit from their football programs. Football is a sport that epitomizes the pay-to-play idiom, and unsurprisingly, the schools that generate the most money are also the most well-funded. The fact that that funding is allocated out of university budgets is not without controversy. And to exacerbate that issue, the NCAA restrictions on player compensation border on exploitation. In theory, student athletes are compensated via college scholarships, but many schools float student-athletes with made-up course. NCAA scandals are numerous, and it may be past time to separate athletics from academics. This project images a professional league to replace college football, with operations modeled roughly off of minor league baseball. I have a four-tier minor league system in mind, with 128 teams. Some are in markets formally served by the NCAA, and some... not so much. I know 128 sounds like a lot (and it is) but between Division-I FBS, Division-I FCS, Division II, and Division III, it's not like the NCAA doesn't have hundreds of teams. My school of thought is that allowing each NFL team to maintain four developmental teams, in theory, it would eliminate the fierce competition in the NFL draft while paying players for what would otherwise be their college years. This means the NFL owners would pay more of a flat rate across the board for new players rather than the ludicrous draft pick bonuses we have in practice today. Also, I have always held the Green Bay model of ownership in high regard, and I envision something of a hybrid system, with each host market having at least some percent owned at the city, county, or state/provincial level, and some percentage of ownership available for shareholders, while the bulk percentage is held by private ownership. This would allow host markets at least some control over relocation bids, but also allow at least some validity for the use of public money. As a matter of course, every US state and nearly every Canadian province is granted at least one team. National Football League I have very little in mind for the NFL itself. I would like to rebrand Washington and Kansas City (my girlfriend is Cherokee, so we refrain from the R-word). And while it won't really impact this project, I did opt to make a new map of the NFL. I based the four tiers of my minor league on the east-vs-west system used in the NBA and NHL. Football and baseball are the only major-league sports to use the National-American conference system (that I know of), because both leagues expanded by merging with competing organizations. So more for my own what-if curiosity than anything else, I created this realignment map. Personally, I find the new divisions that resulted rather intriguing, but that's just my own biased opinion. A lot of old rivalries would be upset, but I'm curious how making the NFL divisions more geographically oriented would ultimately impact the league. Alpha Football League The Alpha League consists of the largest markets not served directly by the NFL. The minimum NFL salary is about half a million, but here, the salary would be about a quarter million. This would equate to the NCAA Div-I FBS, with players that have worked their way up from the Beta league. San Diego and St. Louis once again become host to professional football franchises. And I ultimately decided for sake of this project to absorb the CFL into this project. Notably, I granted a franchise to Mexico. The conversion rate for the Mexican peso is not as strong as the rate between American and Canadian dollars, plus American football has limited popularity outside the United States. As a result, I opted to place the sole Mexican franchise where lies the strongest support. Monterrey, it turns out, has the highest affinity for the NFL in Mexico. Beta Football League The Beta League simply follows the above pattern with the largest markets not served in the Alpha League. The minimum salary would be $125K, and would consist of players that have finished their time in the Gamma League. It would equate to the Div-I FCS. The only real note to the Beta League is that it includes Hawaii. I had some concerns on remoteness, but the NCAA finances transportation for game in Hawaii, so assuming all operational costs were covered by the NFL (an entity that made an estimated $14B in 2017), then travel expenses for smaller markets becomes less of a concern. Gamma Football League Minimum salary in the Gamma League drops to $62,500, higher than the national median income, but we're getting down to blue-collar football here. These are the players that have made it a year or two in the Delta League and have made their first jump up the ranks. Delta Football League This is the bottom of the barrel, with media markets down to about three hundred thousand on average, with the smallest market being Casper, Wyoming. I opted to include a team in The Bahamas, as the sport is growing in popularity there and it would increase exposure to American Football in the Caribbean. And Anchorage, while by far the northernmost city in this project, is purportedly not much worse in winter than Seattle, with the surrounding oceans mitigating much of the harsher Alaskan winters. With a minimum salary down to $31,250, this would be the league that recruits players directly out of high school and takes walk-on try-outs. It would be comparable to Div-III, essentially the Single-A Short Season league of professional football. Assuming a player plays one year in each league, they'd earn roughly half a million over four years before signing with the NFL. And at any time, whether for salary cap reasons or recovery from injury, the NFL would have the ability to send players down to the minors. On a final note, I have concepts in mind for about half these markets, so I'm open to suggestions. EDIT: I apologize for the frequent edits since posting. I'd written the entire post in HTML... only to find that the forum displays HTML as naked code, which wasn't my intention. I didn't have access to my computer till this morning and my phone browser was rather temperamental with the post editor. EDIT: Replaced images since I'd stupidly mixed up Chattanooga and Knoxville in my map. EDIT: Changed cities in the Delta League Map.
  19. I am fascinated, like many others, with failed expansion and relocation of big league sports teams. While I am aware of most from the MLB and NBA, there's still a lot I don't know about the NFL and NHL failed bids. I thought this thread would be a fun place to share some of those failed expansion and relocated teams. If there are any proposed logos, uniforms, etc. please share those! MLB St. Louis Browns failed move to Los Angeles (1941) San Diego Padres failed move to Washington (1974) San Francisco Giants failed moves to Toronto (1975) and St. Petersburg (1992) NFL Los Angeles Rams failed move to Baltimore (1994) The failed Seattle Kings expansion (1976) The failed St. Louis Stallions, Baltimore Bombers, Memphis Hound Dogs expansion (1995) NBA Sacramento Kings failed move to Anaheim (2011) and Seattle (2012) Charlotte Hornets failed move to Memphis (2001) The failed Anaheim and Toronto expansion (1988/89) NHL St. Louis Blues failed move to Saskatoon (1983) Nashville Predators failed move to Hamilton (2007) The failed Hampton Roads Rhinos expansion (1997)

    Panthers Price Tag: $2.2 Billion

    There's apparently an agreement in place to sell the Carolina Charlotte Panthers. Price tag: $ 2.2 billion. The buyer is currently a part-owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The last Steelers part-owner to buy a majority stake in a team was Jimmy Haslam. Make of these facts what you will.
  21. Hey everyone, I'm back at it again. I did a concept a few years ago that I really enjoyed and I've been tinkering with it again. I hope this time the colors come through the way I've intended. Last time I couldn't get the colors the way I wanted due to my monitor being shoddy. A little back story here, I'm not trying to totally re-brand the team but take what they currently wear and modify what I and others see as problems with their current look. The logo's are pretty much the same as before with some minor tweaks. They are a mash up of their current and former logos, taking the elements from both that I really liked. I really do like Tampa's current look for the most part, I think the balance between colors really works all though I do prefer a little more orange. One huge fix is the number font. For this concept I went with a slightly modified version of the Spokane Empire's number font. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy and C+C is always welcome.

  22. I've been a long time peruser, occasional poster on these forums for a while now. Over the years, I've seen many great concepts, but there has always been one poster whose concepts I really gravitate towards, Oldschoolvikings. A few weeks ago, I pulled up his NFL Fauxback Thread and saw his 1965 Baltimore Ravens concept. I really love how it captured the essence of 60's design.... One of my hobbies is building football helmets. I liked Oldschool's Ravens helmet concept so much, that I decided to make an actual helmet based on his design for my personal collection. Below is the result... Big thanks to Oldschoolvikings for the inspiration and coming up with this design. Keep up the great concepts......I love 'em!
  23. Shad Khan In Deal to Buy Wembley Stadium. Just when you thought the NFL Franchise Merry Go Round had stopped for a while... new speculation emerges. It seems unlikely to me, but has Khan given up on Jacksonville and is he willing to take the London plunge?
  24. So..."Biggest upgrades" and "Biggest downgrades" are already a thing on here. I figured I may as well start the only remaining thread in the series. In your opinion, which uniforms kept the quality close to the same level as their predecessors? For me the classic example would be the lateral move made by the Denver Broncos in 1997. They went from good uniform to good uniform (in my opinion anyway) while changing the dark jersey color and radically altering their design. The 1996 Philadelphia Eagles were similar - big changes, but all in all went from middling to middling. If there is a bad-to-bad lateral move...that one's a little trickier. I'm sure someone can fill us in though.
