Didn't see any posts about this, but they've changed to the Kings' colors and added a crown. http://www.kolotv.com/content/news/Bighorns-unveil-new-colors-logo-419910483.html http://reno.dleague.nba.com/news/reno-bighorns-unveil-new-color-identity-create-visual-connection-parent-club/
It is my pleasure to introduce the newly formed Legends Hockey League! This will be the NHL's equivalent to the PGA's Champions Tour. As many NHL players retire because they find they simply can't keep up with the league any more, they find they still have the competitive fire within them and what they miss most is the comradery between the guys. This league gives them the chance the continue on playing at a fairly high level but doing so in a less win-at-all-costs environment and in a much shorter season allowing them to spend more time with their families. Below I will walk you through the basics of the make-up of the league, and then post the League homepage with the logos for all 16 teams participating. Eligibility - Must be at least 40 years of age as of December 31, OR have been retired from the NHL for 2 full seasons. - Must be a member of the NHLPA Pension (minimum 160 NHL games) - Playing 1 game in the LHL means you are no longer eligible to play in the NHL. Season The LHL season is 36 games and runs from November through January, with the playoffs being completed in February. Rules & Rosters - Body Checking is not allowed (2 min penalty) - 4 on 4 and then 3 on 3 in OT - Rosters are 18 players, usually 9 forwards, 7 defencemen, 2 goalies. - No coaches, Team Captains generally put together lines and run practices. The salaries are generally between $80,00 and $160,000. Keep in mind all of these players are already on the NHLPA's pension, and are not in it for the money so much. Lower salaries keep ticket prices down for families that may not be able to afford NHL games. The teams are all located in cities that don't have NHL teams, but all have a history of supporting hockey teams. Next I will post the team page. I will warn you all of the logos are very simple, these are the first logos I have eve created. I am looking for lots of C&C on my logos, and on anything in the league as well. If you have any thoughts, idea, concerns or criticisms on anything posted here please let me know! And without further adieu, The league Homepage:
In thinking about "Faces of the Franchise" I've realized that some teams don't have one face of the franchise, but rather many legends that represent the team. So I thought to myself "Wouldn't a sports-themed Mount Rushmore-type list make more sense?". Being a Detroit Tigers fan, this is an especially tough list because they've had so many legends wear the Old English D on the front of their jerseys. But without further ado, here I go. Ty Cobb: An obvious choice, simply one of the best hitters and base runners in league history. Even if he was a great pain, he was also a great baseball player. Hank Greenberg: A unique choice, I know. But he was one of the Tiger's most prolific home run sluggers in their history. It also helps that he was a hero to Detroit's Jewish population at a time when they needed a hero. Al Kaline: A no doubter here. I mean, he is nicknamed Mr. Tiger after all! He spent his entire career with Detroit, and he is known for his class as much as he was for his playing skill he had back in the day. Alan Trammell AND Lou Whitaker: There's no way I could split up one of the best double play combos in history by choosing one over the other. It is almost impossible to not think of one without the other. They spent their entire career together, and during that time they became fan favorites for their amazing defensive plays and for leading Detroit to the 1984 World Series. In compiling this list I made the decision to leave off some players that still meant a lot to the organization (Willie Horton and Kirk Gibson, to name a few). I also decided to stick to players only, which led to Mike Ilitch and Sparky Anderson being left out. I thought about putting Miguel Cabrera on the list, but I'm waiting to see how the rest of his career pans out. So what's your list?
