  1. some football field concepts

    For almost as long as football has existed, there have been many tries at tabletop simulations of the sport. I'm not talking about Strat-o-Matic, Paydirt and their ilk. No, what I speak of is having the whole field, and 11 little men butting heads with 11 other men. The most famous of these attempts is electric football, which seems to be something of a love/hate affair mainly because getting those little men to go where you want them to, as well as passing and kicking, are dark, arcane arts mortals were not meant to know ...and then there have been other, more obscure efforts, a number of which basically combined football with chess, though that has its own issues (queen pieces might end up being too powerful to contain, for instance). What I saw someone at Boardgame Geek do with All-Pro Football, a late 60s effort, inspired me to try my hand at at least preparing to make my own board, and at some point I'll post some of them. These fields I'm about to show you, I created with a different game, Techno Bowl, in mind. All I'll say is what I know: I think the idea has finally found its winner, and all it took was inspiration from a certain iconic NES game. Anyway, I give you a field for Rice... And in my world, the Noles bring back the white endzones...I was on the fence considering whether to have the feather on the spear or not. Finally for now, los Jefes...I have some faint memories of Arrowhead's old turf field, and also used the spear stripes from one of my older concepts in the endzones. I'll note: the original versions of my fields/boards feature grid lines, which I intend to either leave off or severely lighten for the concept versions I'll be posting here. The All-Pro fields I'll be posting, however, will be in the checkered form I intend to print them in (and I've made CFL and Arena versions as well, which I'll post later).
  2. NFL Alternate Fields

    So, with the Rams using alternate fields for their throwbacks/Color Rush, that inspired me to make these alternate fields. Rams and Vikings:
  3. All fields here, and more, can be found on the Gridiron Fields Database. Links to fields Links to Playoffs Fields Links to International Series Fields Now that I've been working with the Gridiron Uniforms Database to help add fields to the Gridiron Fields Database I'll be starting to do some historical fields, along with the current ones. There are so many past fields to do, and they are time consuming, so at least to start with I'm going to do just fields for big moments in NFL history. So I'm starting with the immaculate reception game. I'll also be skipping the on-field logos portion, to save time and memory space. December 23, 1972 - AFC Divisional Playoffs Raiders -7 @ Steelers - 13 December 31, 1972 - AFC Championship Dolphins - 21 @ Steelers - 17 As always, if anyone wants templates or the full sized fields (9144 x 4344 pixels) PM me.
  4. Now that we are close to having LA teams, I am surprised there is no thread in this forum on what they may look like. Is there any way we are looking at an identity overhaul? I'd say it's unlikely, particularly given the three teams we are talking about.. Both the Rams and Raiders have history in LA (so do the Chargers, but not as memorable). It would be really odd to see the Rams, who've been the Rams since, what the 30s (?), change names. I don't think whatever sympathy there is for St. Louis will cause much momentum for a Cleveland Deal, thanks to the history in LA, the lacking certainty that St. Louis will have a team again, and the lack of "lunchpail/blue collar fan" reputation. The Raiders also have LA history and while they've had a rough decade plus, their brand has historical importance. I think their brand would stay the same not only if they moved to LA but to San Antonio or London. Also, like St. Louis, there will be nothing near a guarantee that Oakland will ever get another team. San Diego is the most likely to overhaul, but probably still unlikely. Given the proximity of San Diego to LA, they may even retain some fans. Plus it's a brand that's been around for 50 years or so and, once again, no Cleveland Deal is likely for San Diego. Truth is, I don't like the identity (curved lightning bolts?) but I certainly don't want to see it change, diminishing those 50 years and resulting in something likely to be worse. I have no horse in the race, so as a neutral fan, I'd like to see the names remain the same, and the identities essentially the same. Predictions: If Raiders move: No identity change save for "Oakland" to "Los Angeles." If Rams move: No name change. The horns stay. Move to the old blue/yellow scheme (60%). Otherwise, stay with current look (35%) or move to old blue/white scheme (5%) If Chargers move: No name change. The bolts stay on the helmet. Stay with current look (80%). Otherwise go to some old look (15%) or a new variation of the "bolts" (5%) Any thoughts?
  5. So while browsing the interwebs this morning I discovered the news that the US Airways Center in Phoenix has been renamed the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Ugh. That got me thinking ... what are some HORRIBLE names you've come across for stadiums and arenas. I'm talking mainly here in the US and Canada. But, the big leagues, minor leagues, etc. Ones that stand out as DUMB off the top of my head are ... Talking Stick Resort Arena; PhoenixEnergySolutions Arena; Salt Lake CitySAP Center at San JoseO.co Coliseum; OaklandGlobe Life Park at ArlingtonMinute Maid Park; HoustonUniversity of Phoenix Stadium; GlendaleEverBank Field; JacksonvilleBefore the name change Jobing.com Arena was just as horrid as some of these. What else would you add to this list?
  6. I haven't used this thread in over two years, and use another instead. Can a mod please close this for further comments? Thanks
