  1. I apologize for the long post ahead. If you read further, great! Welcome! This is my first post on sportslogos.net. In an alternate world where the NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA still exist, a wealthy young dreamer decides there should be another showcase for fun, fame, and money. The National Kickball League is born. Kickball has been played for years on playgrounds at recess all across America. On a recent vacation to Oregon, I was excited to learn that there are leagues designed for club kickball. What a better way to bring out the recess kid in us? Kickball is a simple game: kick a ball, run around bases (same rules as baseball, give or take), and whoever has the higher score wins. Other rules differ depending on who you play with. When I was about ten years old, I became incredibly bored one day and began to draw logos for a big kickball league: the NKL. Being ten and stupid, some names (there were 32) included the Cleveland Startings (seriously, why?), the Detroit Dare, and the Minneapolis I's (as in iguana. Not a lowercase L). When I got my first laptop at 12 years, I uncovered those logos and began them on my computer. Some teams stayed (the Dare, temporarily), some left, and every logo got better. I decided to share this. Logos have been/are being designed by my brother and I. We are young and only using the generic paint app on my laptop. Some logos might suck. Without further ado: the National Kickball League: The league will consist of eight teams in its inaugural season. In the season (starting on May 1, ending September 4), being eight teams, there will be two conferences, east and west. Each team will play 60 games: 3 home and 3 away against each team of the opposite conference and play 6 home and 6 away games against each of their conference teams. The teams will play every other day. The between days can be used as days for make-up games, team practices, or resting days. There is no All-Star Break or Game. Playoffs and Tournaments: There is a preseason tournament including all eight teams, and it is held at a single location. The winner of this blind draw (by conference, of course) tournament gets an automatic bid into the postseason playoffs. This preseason tournament begins April 27th. There is also a midseason tournament including all eight teams, held at a different location than in the preseason. This one is seeded by the rankings as of June 30th. The tournament begins on July 2nd with all teams, is single elimination, ends on July 4th, and the winner gets an automatic bid to the postseason. Regular season play resumes June 8th. The twist with these playoffs is that the top two teams in each conference make it automatically. The winners of the other tournaments move up one spot from their ranking in the conference. So, if they were first in conference from the regular season, they would still be first in the playoffs. If they were second, they would be seeded first and be the home team. If they were third, then they and the original second place team would play in a wild card round. If they were fourth, the same goes for the wild card round, but they surpass the original third place team. If the same team wins both tournaments, they move up two spots. If a team wins both and is third in the regular season, then they get the wild card "bye" (using the term bye loosely) and the regular season one and two seeds play the wild card. Uniforms consist of caps (like baseball), then dri-fit shirts with sleeves only to the elbow, then sweatpants similar to what a baseball player might wear but more loose toward the bottom. Finally, cleats would not be allowed. The teams: West Conference: Bay Area Boas The team was originally set (when I was ten) as the San Francisco Charmers, then they combined with the Oakland team to create the Bay Area Boas. Houston Comets This logo is simple, but I couldn't seem to make a comet that didn't look like a sperm cell. Los Angeles Painters Another name for a Cougar is a Painter Cat. The paintbrush in the mouth will appear to be dipped in paint depending on the worn uniform (any color on rainbow). Phoenix Poison Toads The colors don't necessarily scream toad, but the design itself would allow me to call them the Poison Frogs. Poisonous frogs are very colorful, so it is a mix. East Conference: Boston Black Cats I originally called them the bombers, but then the marathon bombing spurred me to change the name. Chicago Rams The most generic of the original eight. New York Blues Originally it was going to be a blue circle. still isn't much, but it is better. Philadelphia Flamingos Reason... nope. I do not have uniforms set, but I do have the home game balls set. Expansion is highly likely within the first few seasons. Logo changes will be necessary, and as I learn to use other programs they definitely will. Leave any questions, comments, and critiques in the comments.

Without further ado: the National Kickball League: https://imgur.com/wRDfbUk I need your help: the eight original teams/host cities are undecided. Pick four cities from the list on the picture above so they can be entered to take part. Comment below. Expansions and changes are expected. (If the picture doesn’t show up, tell me how to get it to work, like I said this is my first post.)

  3. Fantasy Football Edits

    I did up some player cards for the best starting lineup in my dynasty league. Rather than spamming you all with the 10 individual cards, here they are all together.
  4. Since 1999 I have been developing a concept league called the Sunday Champions League. Accompanying this league is a full collegiate universeThe first team up is the Cleveland Turfdogs. Keep in mind I was in fifth grade when some of these teams got their names, and in honor of tradition the names have stuck. The Turfdogs are a playoff team year in and year out but have lost all three SCL Championships that they have reached. Running Back, Bruce Perry is the lone Dog that has reached the SCL Pantheon (Hall of Fame). He holds the honor of being the first running back in SCL history to reach 2,000 yards. The Dogs are hoping that their first round pick, QB Pat Cavanaugh, will turn things around for them. They have missed the playoffs two straight seasons for the first time in team history.

  6. Fantasy baseball promo poster

    My friends and I take our fantasy baseball league pretty seriously, so I made a promo poster for a marquee match-up quickly approaching. One of the teams and I live down the street from each other, hence the "Sidewalk Series." It is also our 3rd meeting this season, hence "3rd round." I'd love to hear some feedback on how I can improve this!
  7. Toronto Frenchies Fantasy Baseball

    It's been a very long time since I've done any concept, let alone post one. I've been involved in fantasy hockey and football for years, but this year was my first foray into fantasy baseball and as such used it as my motivation to get behind the mouse. As such, I took John Benson's jersey and Jay Jaxon's cap templates and created this unique set for the Toronto Frenchies... (don't hold back on comments, my son described the away jersey as the "ugliest shirt he's ever seen".(and I own a NY Islanders "fish sticks" one...)
  8. Fantasy Warriors Sports Logo

    Fantasy Sports Logo Project Ever had a fantasy sports idea that you wanted to bring to life? We received an inquiry from a man named Joseph, who was looking for someone to make this happen. He had an idea for creating a sports brand "Fantasy Warriors", and we figured we'd be the ones who could make it work! The original idea was to create a Berserker Warrior or Viking Character, along with a Bears Pelt. Take those base ideas and create an awesome "Mascot Logo" for his sports brand! Something he could really be proud of and remember with when seen. This was our base idea for the project, and we now present our final concept! We hope you all enjoy! And as always you can check out the full resolution photos on our site here: Fantasy Warriors Logo Project For these Apparel Mockup Templates, check out YellowImages
  9. Fantasy baseball league logos

    I took it upon myself to redesign my fantasy baseball league's branding since my Inkscape skills have gotten a little better. I was hoping to get feedback on these, since we will use them for a lot of things throughout the league (watermarks on letters, on the trophy, etc.). First, the league logo. It obviously draws heavy influence from the Jagermeister label, but I modified the stag, font and added a baseball instead of a cross. Any feedback is good feedback, so fire away. Thanks!
  10. National Laser Tag League

    Just a thought I had: what if there were a league of laser tag teams? Now, to flesh that thought out a bit: This is a sixteen-team league, with two conferences, each consisting of two four-team divisions. The top two teams from each division make the playoffs (although the bonuses given to players and coaches differ between divisional winners and wild cards). The season consists of forty games, played on Saturdays only, typically one per week (winters are off, as that's the worst time to travel). Players and coaches are strongly encouraged to have other jobs, as nobody makes more than $40K in a season, and healthcare is very bare-bones. In short, this straddles the line between pro and semipro. It's a new startup, so it has to be this way at first, right? Contrary to what you might think, home-course/arena (I'm calling them courses) advantage plays a big role. The courses have different designs and obviously the home team knows its course better than the visitors do. That said, there are certain basic rules relating to course size and structure that all teams must follow. Rosters are eight men per team, but only five play at a time. No in-game substitutions may be made except in the unlikely event of an injury. Those with more experience playing laser tag than I can help iron out other rules. (While I've greatly enjoyed the game when I've played it, there are no facilities in my hometown so I have only played a few times.) League setup (names off the top of my head; feel free to claim a team, change its name and/or location, and submit designs for it): Eastern Conference: Southeast Division: Atlanta Agitators Miami Neons New Orleans Turtles Charlotte Eels Nashville Twang Northeast Division: Columbus Cobras New York Volt Hartford Stags Boston Beams Detroit Electrons Western Conference: Northwest Division: Portland Thorns Denver Peaks Boise Beavers San Francisco Shockers Casper Frighteners Southwest Division: Los Angeles Jedis Phoenix Scorpions Las Vegas Rollers Santa Fe Rattlers Houston Explosion
  11. Copperhead Logo

    Hey guys. I recently started a fantasy league and am attempting to make logos for each team. My team is up first, of course. Team: Carolina Copperheads I just wanted some guidance. I'm pretty happy with the overall shape and style. Of course, the logo isn't finished. I'm really struggling on the eye. I cannot for the life of me draw eyes, especially in the artistic style of cartoons, logos, etc. Just wanted some advice. So, here goes: Thanks gents!
  12. Recently, I decided to try out fantasy football for the first time. I also love making logos for anything. So these 2 things clashed and out came a couple of fantasy team logos. These aren't meant for a serious kind of fantasy football as some people like to do. They are kind of just for fun and to have a cool logo to go with the name, instead of the built in logos with some fantasy sports sites. So far, I've only made 3 (2 for the same team name) but I might end up making more. Maybe I'll even take requests, though I don't have much time to make them. So without further ado, here they are. I made logos for 2 teams: Legion of Boom and RG-3PO.
  13. These concepts are for an upcoming fantasy football league, as always created using MS Paint. C&C is welcomed. The first team is the Mutineers. Primary Secondary Uniforms Let me know what you think!
  14. NBA Alternate Universe

    Let me start by saying I have got this idea from both the NFL and NHL alternate universe threads. In 1976, the National and American Basketball Association reached a merger agreement, with four ABA teams (San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, Denver Nuggets, and New York Nets) joining the NBA. However, both the Kentucky Colonels and St Louis Spirits were both told that they would receive a spot in the NBA - but they didn't. What if the NBA did honor their agreement with Kentucky and St Louis, and they added 6 new teams into the league? I will not be doing a yearly standings, but will state the champions. I present to you an alternate universe. (My phone is almost dead, so I won't post any designs now)
  15. Monday, May 6, 1878 – Chicago, Illinois In 1878 the sporting goods equipment and retail business of Albert Spalding was thriving. As his wealth began to grow due to the business of sport, Spalding looked for every opportunity he could to foster the love of athletics in every American. Baseball was and remained his first love but his motive to diversify the love of sport caused him to look for other games he might elevate in stature. One game he found was the Swiss game of Hornussen. Spalding found the game fascinating and he felt that if he could get Americans to love the game as well it was one that would require its practitioners to purchase equipment; equipment he could sale to them. Thus Spalding resolved to organize a professional Hornussen league in the United States. He called the league the Professional Hornussen Players League (PHPL). He decided he would serve as the league’s first commissioner and he would sale four franchises. The charter of the league that he wrote stated that franchise owners would be fully proprietary, maintaining near complete control of their clubs. The first franchise he sold was to his friend William Hulbert. Hulbert was the owner of the baseball Chicago White Stockings. He wanted to name his Hornussen club the White Stockings as well but Spalding did not like this. He wanted his league to be distinct from any baseball league. Spalding suggested the name Pioneers to Hulbert and that stuck. Spalding remembered the name from the Rockford Pioneers, the first baseball team he ever played for. So William Hulbert’s team will play in Chicago and they will be called the Chicago Pioneers. The second franchise was sold to Morgan Bulkeley. Bulkeley was brought into the league by the suggestion of William Hulbert. He, along with Spalding and Hulbert, was a long time and early organizer of baseball. Bulkeley decided he would place his team in his hometown of Hartford, Connecticut. Outside of sports Bulkeley was interested in politics. As the league was organizing he was beginning to lay the foundation for his political career. Like many northerners at this time he was an avid fan of Abraham Lincoln and the 16th Presidents party the Republicans. In tribute to Lincoln, Bulkeley named his team the Hartford Republicans. The third franchise sold was purchased by Bob “Death to Flying Things” Ferguson. Ferguson was a player/manager in baseball and had worked for Morgan Bulkeley previously. He had also worked as a league director in the original National League. After purchasing his own team, Bulkeley talked Ferguson into picking up the third franchise in the league. Although Ferguson was very busy traveling with Chicago White Stockings at the time, he decided to place his team in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. For a nickname he decided to dub his club the Brooklyn Swats. The name served as both an homage to his nickname as well as serving as a fitting name for a team in a sport where players attempt to swat a flying flute out of the sky. Finally Albert Spalding sold the fourth franchise. He got sports journalist Henry Chadwick to take ownership of the franchise. Chadwick decided to place the team New York City and call the club the New York Clippers. He gained inspiration for the name from the magazine that he was working for at the time, The New York Clipper.
  16. My Baseball Mogul '16 League

    Unfortunately, the game doesn't seem to offer the opportunity to create logos, except perhaps by modifying them in Paint. If anyone would like to create appropriately-colored logos for any of these teams, that'd be awesome, but nobody has to. Anyway, I just started a custom league in 1914, featuring all-fictional players and teams. There are 24 teams total, 12 in the NL and 12 in the AL. Each league is divided evenly into East and West divisions. I'll begin in the AL East, with the team I'm mostly controlling, the Providence Steamrollers of Providence, Rhode Island. I named them after the old Providence Steam Roller who played in the NFL in the 1920s; originally, I created this team in Baseball Pro '96 back in the late '90s or early '00s (this is the case with many of these teams). The Steamrollers are led by a do-it-all lefty ace named Pat McGary; the 34-year-old submarine-style hurler never gets as high as 70 with his fastball, but has an excellent screwball and two curveballs, and also throws a slow knuckler (~50 mph) and a frisbee slider (low 60s). The Steamrollers have the most conservative uniforms in baseball; here they are: Teams colors are navy blue (0-0-50) and grey (180-180-180). They wear only white and grey caps; they have unused alternates with blue caps. They wear pinstripes only on Sundays. Note: Next upload, I'll have to find a way to zoom in on the uniforms, because this doesn't give you a very good view.

  18. Fantasy Hockey that looks legit

    Just finished an 8 team fantasy hockey league using head to head scoring and wanted to share some of the work that I did to bring realism to fantasy sports. All of the work done was with photoshop. I think it turned out nicely. I will use this to promote an expansion to 10 teams instead of 8. Click here to view the slideshow of the Hardware that was won this season. The name of the league is "Ice Breakers FHL"
  19. Formula 1 Concepts

    Hello everyone, I'm going to post here my works. p.s. I'm not good enough to create my own template, so i borrowed it from marble21. (Thank you!) Scuderia Ferrari Bonus: Valentino Rossi fantasy Team: VR-46 Racing Team Inspired by this
  20. Ann Arbor Blues hockey concept

    A continuation of teams from a minor league or semi-pro league the Great Lakes Hockey Assoc. Following the Marathon Argos and the Chicago Huskies. These are the Ann Arbor Blues. Not like the music blues but the color after the Michigan Wolverines. The the oak tree and the three stripes on the roundel and throughout the design comes from the flag of Ann Arbor. The shield logo is to have a university look to it with the Latin phrase "Fortes Fortuna Iuvat" meaning "Fortune Favors the Brave" I have some ideas for teams but any ideas for teams would be welcomed. Teams do not need to be on the lake just in states and provinces surrounding them. Next possible team is the Mackinac Islanders or another name, maybe a team in Green Bay or somewhere in Wisconsin. Any comments welcomed and appreciated. This will be sent to HJC later on
  21. New Orleans football concept

    i decided to create a football uniform concept for the university of New Orleans first up the away uniform
  22. Fantasy Baseball 2016

    We had a football one, why not baseball? Meanwhile, while everyone bidding wars Sano, I thought I'd post what I have so far I have a 4.95 average to fill all my positions left tho
  23. Chicago Huskies hockey

    Chicago Huskies concept is part of the fictional Great Lakes Hockey Association that also has my other concept for the league the Marathon Argos based in Marathon, Ontario. I plan on posting this to Hockeyjerseyconcepts. I altered the UConn Huskies logo to look more like my huskie Moxie's fur patterns and tones. She has more of a cream tone and not white that is why there is little to no white color in the concept. and the pawprint is based off of her own pawprint . There will be more designs of other teams coming possibly.
  24. I had this concept pop into my mind when I was thinking of making a logo for my younger brother based on his old nickname Argo. Initially I was going to call them Jason's Argos but it evolved into the semi-pro Marathon Argos in Marathon, Ontario in the fictious GLHA (Great Lakes Hockey Association). I do plan on submitting this to the Hockeyjerseyconcepts. I created the main crest from a sketch i made of a ship based on pics I found online of ancient Greek bireme and trireme ships and artist's renderings of the Argo itself. The Spartan style helmet I had a more MSU style helmet, but I found this and used it to create my own. Spartan warrior helmet.The pants and shoulder patch logo is my design with M for Marathon the striping pattern from the jerseys which is taken from ancient Greek patterns. The midnight blue and aqua tones I used from colors that may have been prominent in ancient Greece I came across while looking online. The gold color to tie in with the story of Jason and the Argonauts with the search for the golden fleece. Sponsor logo is from Shaw telecommunications from that area of Ontario. The GLHA logo is my own design I did use the shield and the wave like design on the Maritime Junior Hockey League logo as a basis for that league logo. Any comments and critiques welcome.
  25. I hope I'm posting this in the correct place. My fantasy football league is looking for a new logo. I'm stuck between the two of these. I need help picking the one that looks the best. A little background about the logo. First, I wanted to do some sort of shield logo. Second, my high school mascot is the wolverines. So, I wanted to incorporate that in the logo too. I used the Michigan style helmet with my high school colors. Please let me know which one is better or if I should scrap the whole thing and start over. Thanks! 1. 2.
