  1. Leafs 2016/17 name and number font

    Does anyone happen to have or know where I can get the new Leafs font that's on their new jerseys? I've been looking for it but I'm having no luck I'm looking to make a poster in photoshop with the back names and numbers but like I said I can't find the font. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  2. Why are the White Sox seemingly irrelevant? They have very little (if any) national following, and seem to be a "local" team even within Chicago, with the Cubs being "Chicagoland's team". Nationally, there doesn't seem to be any difference between the White Sox and Pirates, despite the White Sox having their own century of futility, but the Cubs are on a whole different level when it comes to fandom. Is it the stadium? Location within Chicago? Harry Carey? Uniforms?
  3. 2016 Postseason Logos

    All logos for the 2016 Postseason. Nothing incredibly fancy again, but it's an improvement from the past 2, 3 years - especially 2014 Postseasons logos.
  4. I decided with the presidential frenzy ensuing in the United States, I'd finally make the presidential jerseys I'd been wanting to create for a while. Each jersey has a US flag on its right shouldr, and a US flag-inspired collar. Either the candidate's personal logo or the party's official logo has been put on the front of each jersey. DEMOCRATS - HILLARY CLINTON Hillary has been under a lot of fire for her numerous corporate sponsors and pandering to certain demographics, so I tried to putt hose into the jersey. The jersey's overall design is classical, and something you can't dislike, but the arrows in the striping point to her sponsors that dump millions into her campaign. REPUBLICANS - DONALD TRUMP Trump's "phallic" logo is the crest for this jersey, and the stripes on the flag create the jersey's striping pattern. I was going to use a cinderblock wall pattern under the striping or as a yoke to symbolize the wall he wants to build, but there was no way to incorporate it and make it look good. LIBERTARIANS - GARY JOHNSON The Libertarians are the most "Crazy" party in America, at least as far as ideas go. They believe in breaking free of government and nearly abolishing it, and the jersey brings that into play, trying to be free flowing, overly modern, and breaking free of the standard jersey type. GREEN PARTY - JILL STEIN The Green Party focuses on protecting the Earth and natural resources, and therefore they have a green and yellow logo. The party is the only one without red and/or blue in it, and the jersey shows that. It's a classic and safe jersey. What do you think? Do I need to change anything?

    I just created these Utah Jazz Jersey Designs to go with there new logos. I am aware that there are already official Jerseys, but this is what I wish Utah chooses to wear if they decide to redesign. Tell me your thoughs?
  6. 2016 NHL Draft hockey cards

    Hello everybody, now that the NHL draft has been completed i decided to make some basic hockey cards for the players drafted. Im only going to do the 1st round, releasing 10 at a time, then I will take requests if you want any specific players or teams.
  7. Hey guys, I have put together a master calendar of every single Copa America and UEFA Euro match in order by date with all times and American TV channels listed. Please feel free to check it out and download! Will be a great pal to have this summer to take you through the month and a half of great soccer! Personally, I'm getting this puppy printed up and laminated. Cheers! (external download) SummerSoccerCover.pdf (locally uploaded to CCSLC)
  8. What are yours? I made my pre-FA picks earlier and don't feel like going division-by-division right now, so I'll just talk about what interests me. 1. AFC South: The Texans are faster and probably have a slight upgrade at quarterback, albeit a very expensive one. Can they repeat? Will the Colts resume their former dominance of the division? Will the new-look Jaguars defense catch up to the development of the team's offense? Which running backs and wide receivers will the Titans keep? 2. AFC West: Will the Raiders finally break through to the playoffs? Will the Broncos have a post-Super Bowl hangover bad enough to keep them out of the playoffs? How will the Chiefs handle the excess talent at running back? How will their defense fare? Will the Chargers be a doormat again? 3. NFC East: Anybody could win this division. Who will? 4. NFC North: Will the Vikings be able to build on last season's success? Will the Packers' defense build on its improvement? (I see the Packers as the best team in the NFL right now.) Overall: What has Color Rush wrought? How often will the Rams wear their throwbacks? Can my Bengals finally win a playoff game? Can anyone keep the Patriots out of the Super Bowl this time around? How will the Panthers fare coming off their Super Bowl loss? Will the Rams finally post a winning record? Which non-playoff teams from the 2015 season will make their return to the postseason next January?
  9. Obviously, draft choices and injuries will alter this, but here's what I'm seeing right now. I'll do it the way the old Street & Smith's guides did in the '90s, with projected standings and playoff seedings but no actual records. An (x) means projected divisional champion; a (y) means projected wild-card team: AFC East (1) Patriots (x) - Even with Brady suspended for four games, they're the class of the division. (2) Bills - I still think their personnel favors a 4-3 rather than a 3-4, but they'll improve on both sides in Rex Ryan's second season, and I believe Tyrod Taylor is a legit QB, at least in this system. (3) Jets - Matt Forte is definitely a more versatile halfback than the departed Chris Ivory, but without a dependable quarterback this team will remain a tweener. They overachieved last season and will have a tougher schedule this time around---I'm thinking 8-8 is a pretty good prediction. (4) Dolphins - Unlike some others, I do believe that their defensive changes will produce an improvement on that side as long as they stay healthy. However, I'm not sure that they will stay healthy, and the offense...well, it has me wondering. They'd be well-served by a run-first attack, but they just let a very good running back (whom they almost never used properly) go in free agency. A power-running approach featuring Jay Ajayi and a player to be named later seems sensible but I don't know that their O-line is good enough to facilitate that, particularly with Ajayi's lack of experience. At the very least they have a pair of solid receivers in Landry and Parker. 5 or 6 wins seems a probable outcome. North (1)Bengals (x) - They're still the most balanced team in this division, and I would say that even if I weren't a Bengals fan. As long as they are able to replace secondary receiving options Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, and to get bonehead Vontaze Burfict to control himself, they'll be fine. (2)Ravens (y) - This team won't be kept down for long. Don't expect another perfect storm of injuries and bad defense this year. The Ravens will contend for a playoff spot. (3)Steelers - Too many question marks on this team. I wouldn't trust the defense at all, and key wideout Martavis Bryant is suspended for the whole year. Yes, Darrius Heyward-Bey can fill in for Bryant, and of course they still have Big Ben, Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams, and Markus Wheaton, plus free-agent signee Ladarius Green to replace the retired Heath Miller at TE. The offense should still be one of the top-scoring attacks in the league, albeit slightly worse without Bryant. Still, it's hard not to wonder about Big Ben's age and health; Bell's health coming off a major injury; Green's ability to replace Miller; the health of the O-line; and, of course, almost the entire defense. The worst they'll do is 7-9; the best, 11-5. Exactly where they finish is anyone's guess. This team never meets expectations: they always exceed them or underperform. (4)Browns - How bad will the Clown-suits be? It will be very interesting to see whom they take with their top selection in the draft. Zeke Elliott would be nice for them if he is still on the board. Later in the draft they'll have to try to replace Pro Bowl center Alex Mack and upgrade pretty much every position on the roster. If they have a good, productive draft, that could get them 1 or 2 additional wins. As they are right now, I'm thinking 1-15 at worst and 3-13 at best. South (1)Colts (x) - The Texans are the more complete team, but I just don't see the Colts staying down this season. They won't be great, but they'll be good enough to win an improving (but still weak) division, fighting off Houston and Jacksonville. (2)Texans (y) - Will Brock Osweiler give Houston a much-needed upgrade at QB? Remains to be seen. Lamar Miller gives them a good, explosive running back, though, and without Arian Foster's injury history at that. The combo of Miller and power-plodder Alfred Blue (should they choose to keep using them) will give this team a good lightning-and-thunder rushing attack, and of course they still have DeAndre Hopkins to catch the ball. On defense, J.J. Watt remains transcendent, but there are question marks in a lot of places. This overall defensive unit could be anywhere from elite to average, and that will play a huge part in determining where they finish. (3)Jaguars - The Jags took a big step toward respectability last season, thanks in large part to a potent passing attack. The Allens---Robinson and Hurns---are big receivers who can both make big plays. Having third receiver Marqise Lee available for a full season would be nice. The backfield may be a bit more crowded than before with second-year back T.J. Yeldon, veteran speedster Denard Robinson, and powerful free-agent signee Chris Ivory all on the roster, but at the very least they should be able to run the ball better than they did last year. The defense is the big question mark. Will free-agent signee Malik Jackson and 2015 first-rounder Dante Fowler Jr. be able to change the tune of what was, in 2015, a very weak defensive line? Will new CB Prince Amukamara improve the team's pass coverage? The Jaguars could, theoretically, take a big leap forward this year, surprise everyone, and win the AFC South. I think they're still a year away from true contention, though. (4)Titans - The Titans improved slightly in Marcus Mariota's rookie year, and now they've upgraded his weaponry with halfback DeMarco Murray and wideout Rishard Matthews. Without better o-line play, though, it won't matter. New center Ben Jones will help but he's not going to turn the other four guys on this line into All-Pros. Matthews also makes the receiving corps very crowded. He, Justin Hunter, Kendall Wright, and Dorial Green-Beckham are all talented but largely unproven players. I do believe Green-Beckham will eventually become a star, but I don't think it'll be this year. At least one of these wideouts will most likely be cut. On defense, they're improving and should be a solid unit, but even the best defenses begin to yield when their offense can't keep them off the field at all. That won't be the case here, of course, but neither unit will be elite. Expect continued improvement, but not contention. West: (1)Raiders (x) - You heard it here first. The Broncos and Chiefs are both weakened by personnel losses, and the Chargers just plain aren't very good. Derek Carr is an up-and-coming quarterback; Amari Cooper is an up-and-coming wide receiver. The pass rush will be fearsome, and the secondary, while not elite, will be better than last season, with press corner Sean Smith and ballhawking safety Reggie Nelson coming on board. The linebacking corps is probably the weakest spot on the D; Bruce Irvin is really as much a defensive end as anything else, and Malcolm Smith, while good, isn't as good as he was in Seattle without the same people surrounding him. Kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Marquette King are both very solid players. Overall, this is a team that appears to be young, loaded, and hungry. Their free-agent choices all make sense from my perspective, but of course we won't know for sure till they've taken the field. This will be an interesting team to watch one way or the other. (2)Chiefs - This will be another interesting situation to watch. You have to think Jamaal Charles gets the starting halfback job back automatically to begin with, but that doesn't mean he won't be pushed. Charcandrick West is just as fast as Charles but without the elusiveness and vision; he's young and will improve. Spencer Ware also performed admirably in Charles' absence. The Chiefs need to find a way to keep bringing both those young backs along while continuing to give Charles opportunities to do what he does best, which is make big plays (particularly since QB Alex Smith doesn't make big plays). Their defense, however, looks weaker than last year's. Sean Smith is gone and no one knows for sure when (or if) Justin Houston will play this season. Make no mistake, this is a TEAM and can overcome the loss of significant players, but they still don't feel quite as strong to me as last year's unit. You never know with an Andy Reid-coached team, though. (3)Broncos - This division's top three teams will be very close in quality. The Broncs' defense may take a slight step back this season with the loss of starters on all three levels from their Super Bowl champion team, but it will still be formidable. The offense, however, is a giant question mark. Who will be the quarterback? How good will he be? Will C.J. Anderson be able to take the next step as a definite feature back with Ronnie Hillman gone? What about the inconsistent offensive line? The draft could go a long way toward answering some of those questions, but this team doesn't look to me like it'll be as strong as it was last season. (4)Chargers - Philip Rivers gets Keenan Allen back, and he still has Antonio Gates, Stevie Allen, Javontee Herndon, and Dontrelle Inman, and they're joined by ex-Browns speedster Travis Benjamin. Against teams without a pass rush, this offense will score loads of points. They play in the AFC West, however. Their o-line and defense both look weak, and Rivers figures to spend a lot of time on his back against divisional opponents. This season, perhaps the team's last in San Diego, won't be pretty.
  10. This is my first post to the forum. I have taken all of the teams current designs and colors to create what I believe the Color Rush Uniforms should look like next season. I created designs for every Thursday Night Game. I also followed the NFL's helmet policy where the teams cannot have more than one helmet.

  13. US Soccer Copa America Kit concept

    US Soccer Copa America When a team is celebrating the anniversary of something they will usually use classic jerseys, just look at the Canadiens 100th, the Ducks' 20th, and so on. For the 100th anniversary of the Copa America, US Soccer did not do this. So I came up with this concept. The home is very clean and a bit similar to the US's 2013 kit, which was a throwback to the US's Original soccer kits in 1930. After seeing the actual away kits that the US will wear which feature red and blue split sleeves and a black base I came up with this more traditional split kit. Ultimately, with US Soccer releasing their newer, cleaner, crisper logo, I think kits like these would be the perfect bring in the new era of US Soccer. Let me know what you guys think, I set up a poll so feel free to vote. I am open to creative criticism so throw any suggestions out there. Please don't bother telling me the font looks bad because I know. I am a bit of a stickler for using the correct font and since I could not find the actual font the US will use this summer to download, I copy and pasted the font from an image and re sized and recolored it. I did do previous US Soccer concepts, the home concept I did can be found here and the away concept I did can be found here
  14. 2015-2016 All NBA Team Predictions

    With about a month and a half left in this NBA season, it's nearing the time where the best of the best are to be rewarded for their excellence by placement on an All NBA Team. Every season since 1946, the NBA has maintained the tradition of naming these teams to honor those players who played exceptionally well for their teams. Last year, the All NBA First Team featured big names such as breakout stars, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, and James Harden. This year however, only one of those players has maintained the level of excellence to maintain that rank of All NBA First Team. These are my predictions for this season's All NBA Teams. If you agree or disagree with my picks please leave a comment stating your opinion. Well, here they are. All NBA First Team: G: Stephen Curry - Golden State Warriors G: Russell Westbrook - Oklahoma City Thunder F: LeBron James - Cleveland Cavaliers F: Kevin Durant - Oklahoma City Thunder C: DeMarcus Cousins - Sacramento Kings All NBA Second Team: G: Chris Paul - Los Angeles Clippers G: Kyle Lowry - Toronto Raptors F: Kawhi Leonard - San Antonio Spurs F: Draymond Green - Golden State Warriors C: Andre Drummond - Detroit Pistons All NBA Third Team: G: Damien Lillard - Portland Trailblazers G: James Harden - Houston Rockets F: Paul George - Indiana Pacers F: Anthony Davis - New Orleans Pelicans C: DeAndre Jordan - Los Angeles Clippers Feedback appreciated.
  15. LONG WRITE-UP BELOW: IF YOU WANNA JUST SEE THE UNIS, SCROLL DOWN. I'm gonna let you in on two secrets about myself. #1: I'm obsessed with hockey. #2: I'm obsessed with video games. (I know, so unique, right?) I can still remember the first game I bought for myself. I just got an Xbox on Christmas Day 2002: I was 8. The next day, during the cataclysm of Boxing Day shopping, I smashed my piggy bank and bought the first hockey game I could find. It was a little thing called NHL Hitz 20-03. Chris Pronger was on the front cover, surrounded in flames. I bought it thinking I had just bought a normal hockey game. I was very wrong. In NHL Hitz, the action is 3-on-3. It's fast paced, violent, and incredibly unrealistic: think NBA Jam or NFL Blitz on ice. Games are played for 3 3-minute periods, and there are only two penalties: fighting and goalie interference. If you lose a fight, you're ejected. If you win, you and an opposing player serve concurrent 30-second penalties, and the rest of the players play 2-on-2 for the time. Someone would always score. 2-on-2 tends to work like that. Anyway, the franchise mode for that game enamored me. In it, you pick a small team of players and play against a series of 40 increasingly-difficult opponents for the right to play in the NHL. The mode would work like this: you'd play 4 teams, and if you beat them, you'd play a "boss team". You beat them, you advance to the next round. In later rounds, you'd play against actual NHL teams, but in earlier rounds - and in every boss game - you'd play against some weird and wacky imaginary team in an odd location: there were teams on four continents, in sun and snow, in big bustling cities like Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, and New York, and others in places like Victoria, Sarnia, and Montego Bay. Not long ago, I found my copy of the game again, and the obsession continued. But now, I can't help but think the teams, logos, and information is all dated. So I re-did everything. This is a 16-part series, where all the "made-up" teams are made up, dressed down, and made over. New unis and logos are used for all teams; there's even a name change for one team. I used a random name generator to produce new names for players; a random number generator was used to create statistical attributes. Phony histories were made; full 23-man rosters were made out of thin air. A new season will be run to determine who's on top in the newly-established Global Hitz League. A warning before the first team is unveiled: I've gone into quite some detail about these new players, and the unis will not be what can be considered "conventional". These aren't real teams: these will never hit the ice. So, let's break some rules, and have some fun. Without any further babble, here's team one: the #16 ranked Hong Kong Silicon. Home/away/third: For reference, here are the original uniforms from the game. And here is the roster and attributes of the 2016 Hong Kong Silicon. C&C is welcome about...well, everything. If you've got a question about the game, the project itself, or anything else, don't hesitate to ask.
