  1. 2017 NFL Season

    Well, apparently there's this thing called training camp going on, so let's get this thread started, shall we? P.S. I had thought about subtitling this thread "New England and the 31 dwarves", but decided against it.
  2. I believe Gupti first brought this news in the 2017 NFL thread. Credit to him for putting it here first. I have just typed it up and included a few links to Twitter threads. According to Twitter account @madebytim, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be changing uniforms next offseason. The current talk is that this information is being disseminated during stadium tours, although there is no current official word. This is the 5th year of the current set so a change is possible. A quick rundown of the rumors indicate that Tom Coughlin has some significant input into the process, with the knowledge that he wants something "more traditional," does not like the emphasis on the gold and wants more teal in the design, and that this will be a complete change of the look. There are quite possibly some elements that could stay (the current away uniform is a pretty incredible update of the classic away uniform), including the "JAGS shield." One thing that is pretty much a sure change is the helmet. Both Tim of the @madebytim Twitter and Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country, the Jags' SB Nation site, have said they were sitting on the news. Link: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913435220334010369 Initial thread here: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913431383426699264 A bit more from London trip here: https://twitter.com/MadeByTim/status/913433955612991488 Most of the info can be found by clicking around that Twitter account. Again, nothing official but exciting to get rid of that helmet.
  3. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  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. 2017 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

    With the NFL regular set to begin on Thursday night, I am pleased to announce that this year's Weekly Picks contest is now open. This is my third year running this competition, and I'm very excited to go through this again. It makes the NFL more fun. Week 1: Kansas City vs. New England Tampa Bay vs. Miami Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland NY Jets vs. Buffalo Atlanta vs. Chicago Baltimore vs. Cincinnati Arizona vs. Detroit Jacksonville vs. Houston Oakland vs. Tennessee Philadelphia vs. Washington Indianapolis vs. LA Rams Seattle vs. Green Bay Carolina vs. San Francisco NY Giants vs. Dallas New Orleans v. Minnesota LA Chargers vs. Denver -- One rules reminder: Picks for the specific games are to be in by the kickoff of those respective games. I, ever the hypocritical cynic, do believe in the honor system with this game, though. People here have lives, things get forgotten about, sometimes a game might accidentally be forgotten to be selected out of the vast Sunday swath (though I'm hoping to amend that a bit if I post the week's schedule in advance). If a game is forgotten about, you can send a DM or send me a tweet (@KramerIndustry) and, more often than not, I will be generous enough to give credit. If Cleveland is facing New England and NE wins and you forget to make that pick, then I'll logically presume NE would've been the pick and give the nod (do they even play each other this year? Who cares). All I will ask is not to abuse this, is all. For my own convenience, I do record both wins and losses, but ultimately wins is the only category that matters. -- (wtf, this is the third straight season the Giants are in Dallas to open the season. Fix the schedule generator, NFL.) EDIT - thanks @ninersdd; not sure what happened there.

  7. 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.
  8. This has basically been a one-man quest. Although I never truly seeked out validation, I like to think I got a measure of it last year when Mississippi State decided to dress like the Patriots for their game in Foxborough. So, after a while on the sidelines, I'm back in the saddle, as... Since it's been a while, here's a refresher of the basic rules I impose on myself for these things: Pick X number of players, usually four. The main aim is to see what said players' college unis would look like in their pro styles, and vice versa. Whenever possible, only uniform styles and logos in use when the player was in college/with the NFL team in question will be used. Every now and then, a semi-original logo must be created, or an older logo put into use, to achieve what I'm aiming for. Same goes for number fonts in most cases. Throwbacks are included in this rule. I may occasionally forget a small detail or two. It happens. If a uniform that either predates or postdates a player's time at his school/team is sufficiently awesome enough, at my discretion I might waive rule #3, also known as the Woodson Exception (after Charles Woodson). I figured I'd lead off with Mr. Last Second Pass to Win the National Championship. With apologies to Metta Ron Panda, we welcome the One Tru Warier to C2P. I know one thing. The Browns' style was trickier than it has any right to be...kinda like the Lions' blue is rarer than it should be. And now we close things out with the Bald One
  9. 2017 NFL Concepts

    Imgur Album Links: Saints Steelers Cowboys Chargers Rams Falcons Packers Jaguars With the NFL Playoffs starting today, I decided to mock up some ideas I had for a three NFL Teams: the Saints, Steelers, and Cowboys. I loved the color rush uniforms for both the Saints and Steelers; ideas from both are implemented in these concepts. For the Saints, the concept basically is their color rush; there is no reason they shouldn't adopt that look full time. I simplified their helmet logo a bit and brought back the Louisiana state outline logo as a chest patch. In addition to the white jerseys taken from the color rush set, the concept includes a black jersey with gold-white-gold-white-gold stripes as well as a gold jersey with b-w-b-w-b stripes. An alternate white helmet idea is also shown; it would only be used if the NFL were to lift the one helmet rule, obviously.
  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.)
  11. Nike NFL Jersey concepts

    Hi all, I got bored one-day and decided to use Nike's teambuilder website to re-design some NFL uniforms Up first: The Carolina Panthers I like Carolina's design right now. Simple and clean. I wanted to keep that going and add a little to it. The home jerseys stay black with white numbers and a light blue outline. However I added the Panthers across front in light blue and put some light blue sleeves on it. Also a light blue/white stripe across the middle. The away jersey follows the same design as the home jersey with a some color swaps to fit the jersey. The alt light-blue jersey also works as the color rush jersey. Let me know what you guys think! Next up will be the Arizona Cardinals
  12. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
  13. 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.
  14. Buffalo Bills Logo Concept

    Tweaked the Bills' logo so that it looks like a bison, by actually looking at a bison. Their current look has been a decent facsimile for many years, but in the HD world we need better.
  15. Jacksonville Jaguars Tweaks

    So I saw the rumors that Jacksonville is coming to their senses and getting new uniforms, which undoubtedly means that the world's ugliest helmet will soon be no more. Ugly bucket aside, I personally think that the Jags are a few tweaks away from actually having a decent uniform set. So I decided to layout what I think those tweaks should be: I think that the Jaguars currently look good from the neck down, so there aren't a whole lot of changes to be made but there are some. Let's break them down shall we? Helmet - Do I really need to introduce the incumbent? I changed the disasterpiece that was the helmet to one from the past. I brought back the old black helmet that looks teal in the right light. Kept the jaguar logo on the side, added the JAGS shield logo to the back of the helmet. IMO, it's a decent logo, but doesn't need to take up chest space on the jerseys. Jerseys - The jerseys as they are now really aren't bad to me, in fact I think that they take too much heat from how much the helmet sucks. First off, as I mentioned above, the JAGS patch moves to the helmet. Those weird shoulder designs get taken off and the "claw mark" if you want to call it that, gets moved inside the collar. The teal jersey becomes the home jersey again with the appropriate white numbers. I like the number font, so I kept it. Added the JAGUARS wordmark to the chest and the primary logo to the sleeves so they weren't blank any more. Pants - I didn't change much. I moved the jaguar head from the side of the pants to the front right. It feels cleaner to me. I knocked around the idea of a different pant design, but nothing else really seemed to fit with the design. Socks - Teal and Black. No need for anything on them. And since the NFL is keeping Color Rush around: So as cool as the gold CR uniform was for them (IMO, I didn't hate it completely), I went with teal as the base color since it's more unique of a color to them than black is. So for the first time in team history, teal pants would be worn. Let me know what you guys think.
  16. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/imagine-nfl-soccer-style-relegation-023418506.html Interesting story about what the NFL would look like in a relegation/promotion setup. The only part that definitely doesn't work is having NFL, CFL, AFL, and NCAA teams in a playoff, but maybe the bottom 4 play for the #1 pick?

Recently I have gone back and tried to refine each field to be as exact as possible, and its still a work in progress. I got the idea to start posting them after seeing kodrinsky's NBA court database and I thought it would be a good way to get some feedback and some help pointing out any inaccuracies in what I have so far. So, as I've said before, I want to be as exact as possible, so if anyone sees something inaccurate please let me know by either posting a picture or a link to a video that can help me out. It could be something as small as color, number font, or even the width of the lines on the field. Anything will help. I guess I'll start with Super Bowl I Super Bowl I: January 15, 1967.

  21. NFL 2020: AFC West

    In what is quite possibly the most ambitious undertaking I have found myself engaged with in my 5 years here on the CCSLC, I initially found myself bored and doing nothing in Art History 101 and I was struck with an idea I had seen knocked around here once or twice: the NFL's 100th anniversary, which is 5 years away from the current season (Provided my math hasn't been wrong, the 100th anniversary season is 2020-2021). The redesigns in this thread will follow what happened in my previous NFL series, NFL Redesign 2014, so the mess that Tampa rolled out and the clown suits that Cleveland struts around in never happened. Ok, enough of my rambling. For the NFL's 100th anniversary logo set, there is no gold, no silver, no frills. I wanted to keep it clean so here's what came out: I didn't want to change too much, but wanted things to be different enough that people would notice. Now for the uniforms. Every team will have the normal home and away jerseys No alternate jerseys or helmets will be worn this seasons. Alt pants are ok. Every team will have 2 straight throwbacks, or 2 fauxbacks. Teams will wear the throwbacks/fauxbacks 8 times this season. Along side that, I will be also posting the sketches I've based all these on, which is something I've never done before. Ok, I've talked enough. Here's Dallas. (Going by divisions this time) The Pro Combats Dallas unveiled were a big hit among Cowboys fans, and so Dallas changed after their last uniform change wasn't so well recieved. (The NFL logo is replaced by the 100 logo this year). Brushed silver helmet, star on side, nothing too major. Navy and white jerseys, with stripes and stars on the shoulder, number on sleeves. New number font. Grey pants, pretty much unchanged. New font: Basically took the throwback font and straightened it out. Now the throwbacks Not sure the Cowboys have ever looked better than these uniforms, which come from their first season in 1960. I realise I gave you a lot to swallow in the first post, hopefully they aren't as lengthy. C and C welcome as always.
  22. So, I found the original Minnesota Vikings logo used from 1961-1965. I think this one looks better and cleaner than the current one displayed, and was wondering if we could update it. This is not a custom design by myself, it is the original logo designed by Karl Hubenthal in 1961.
  23. Westeros Football League

    WESTEROS FOOTBALL LEAGUE What's up everyone. For my first post I am proud to present a project I have been working on for quite a bit. If you're a fan of Game of Thrones and the NFL, then this may be for you. The project takes the question, "What if Westeros had its own professional football league?", and brings it to life. For those that are unfamiliar, Westeros is the main continent of the World of Ice and Fire, and the setting of the very popular HBO show, Game of Thrones. Based off the best-selling book series by George RR Martin, Game of Thrones just wrapped up its seventh season. With the NFL season starting, I thought it would be a great time to present this series. Without further ado, here it is. THE TEAMS Each team is based off one of the major houses in Westeros. The teams' uniforms and branding draw from different aspects of each house such as the house sigil, the house words, characters attire, and more. You may also notice some teams draw inspiration from NFL teams as well. I have decided to begin with twelve teams to keep things simple, however, there is definitely the possibility of expanding beyond that in the future.

Post any unique sports memorabilia you find, whether it is online or from your own personal collection!
