    "Desecrating" the NFL

    Hey all! I've been wanting to do a series regarding the NFL that was a no-rules free for all where team history doesn't matter, and everything is brand new. So instead I decided on the current series, based upon the idea above, but with a few rules. THE RULES 1. The uniform must be brand new. The design may never have been worn previously by the franchise. 2. A team's uniform must be "drastically different." i.e. Obviously different to the average person on this site. 3. Elements may be taken from current or former uniforms, and may be mixed and matched, so long as a new uniform is created. 4. Logos may remain the same. This is mostly a uniform project. With that being said, get ready to see some of your favorite untouchable uniforms get touched a lot! First up, the New York Jets! Since the Jets are receiving a new design next year, it felt fitting to begin with them. For the Jets, I decided to follow the path well travelled, and create a double green look, to symbolize the two general eras of Jets football. The main feature of the uniform is the shoulder yoke/ucla stripe combination upon the shoulders. This combination pays homage to the current and Namath era looks while being unique in its own right. The away uniform features a double colored yoke, with the sleeves a dark green, and the shoulder area the kelly green color. The decision here was mostly for color balance, and because I simply liked the look better than a simple mirror of the home uniform. The helmet features an updates "JETS" plane logo featuring the new custom wordmark. In my mind when I think of jets, I think of the Nighthawk Stealth Bomber. Therefore, I wanted to take the angular look of those jets, and incorporate them into the lettering as well as the speeding jet in the helmet logo. Finally, the helmet, pants and socks all feature a Dark-White-Kelly-White-Dark color scheme.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Any and all predictions/feedback welcome. I have heard where the Titans are planning a slight rebrand. What are some other trends we can expect in the fall? Will #ColorRush still be a part of most Thursday night games? What changes introduced in 2017 will carry over (eg--the Saints wearing black jerseys all the time at home, the Chargers wearing navy pants at home and white on the road)? Will the Cowboys wear their often-jinxed blue jerseys more than once at home? I'm looking forward to everyone's input.
  3. 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.)

    NFL by infernoqueso

    I am starting this thread after a long break from the forum. I am setting out to fix rather than completely revamp each teams' look. Not only will I mock-up uniforms, but also merchandise and a field. In addition I have placed 2 restrictions on my concepts. 1.) Teams can have up to 2 different helmets. 2.) Teams can have up to 4 different jerseys (including throwbacks). I will start in alphabetical order with the Arizona Cardinals. Their current uniform is a mess of piping and looks incredibly dated. My idea was to restore a classic feel to a historic franchise, while adding a modern twist. I left the helmet untouched, because in my opinion it is key part of their identity. I sublimated the Arizona flag into the uniforms to establish a unique and regionalized look for the team. The black alternate takes this to an extreme but stays in line the the home and away. I also included a faux-back look that incorporates elements of past uniforms while still fitting in with their current identity. C&C is appreciated, next up will be the Atlanta Falcons.
  5. 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,
  6. Hi! Not new here but it has been long since I finished my last concept... And now back with a NFL to NBA concept. First I want to thank @R3G for his amazing nike NBA template! Very user-friendly. The 1990s NBA jerseys seem to be controversial because of it's colors and details, and I would like to see how the NFL teams can fit into it. Since the Eagles unveiled their current set in 1990s so I decided to start with it. Inspired by the 1992-95 Hawks set and 1997-2011 Wizards set, which both have single-sided stripe and similar curved jersey logos. May back with the white/alt or I will start another new team. C&C is always appreciated!! Thanks for reading!!

    New York Jets // CrownCorvus

    The Jets USA Today blog had an offer for fans to design their ideas for what the Jets will/should do when they get new uniforms next season. This was my entry. The new Primary logo brings back a modified version of the 80s futuristic jet logo but places it in the oval that's been part of the Jets identity from jumpstreet. Double Green was a happy accident when I was trying to incorporate the Titans gold I selected the wrong oval from a previous layer and it showed a Kelly outline instead of Gold. The decision to use a Kelly Outline with Hunter interior rather than the reverse came from the Color Rush jerseys as a lighter outline seemed to give a sort of shine to me. The main inspiration from the color choices in the striping came from the Jets color rush which is one of the best in the league in my opinion. While the green pants are shown with the home greens, that would be a rarity to with but the road whites could pair with the whites or greens.
  8. 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.
  9. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/12/16/is-the-xfl-coming-back/ I know they kind of teased it at the end of that 30 for 30 special earlier this year, but I didn't think they were serious.

    NY Jets

    im hoping when the Jets roll out new unis next year, there wont be any drastic changes. i think they have a great foundation and need to take the same approach as the Lions and Vikings; just put a new spin on the classic. i'd love to see them adopt a new green that isn't Kelly Green. it's a little too expected, so my choice is "Bright Emerald" which is a name i totally just made up, but at least its unique in the NFL. i think the solve for some of these shoulder stripe issues they have now is to move it all down the sleeve. it's important that the contrast areas are bold and impactful, so i would expand that stripe element outside the shoulder seams just a little (think of the Browns or Seahawks stripe technique). finally, have to make the NY-oval the primary logo. large, bold shapes fit this design much better than the overly detailed logo they have now. i always like to think of the alternates when making new uniform decisions too. considering the leagues 1 helmet rule, any alternate would have to work with a white shell. i didn't want to add a black or gray jersey or anything too out of character here, so my alternate option is a throwback. the 1963 uniform gives people something they haven't seen in a long time and provides a darker green jersey option that fans would be more accustomed to.
  11. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.

    2018 NFL Redesigns (19/32)

    I posted an NFL concept series like this three years ago but I don't believe I ever finished it. I've been updating a few of my concepts recently though and thought I'd make it a complete series. First up Tampa Bay and Tennessee. With Tampa Bay I just want to invite more red on to their road jerseys as well as make the alarm clock numbers look a little less like alarm clock numbers. I was excited when I heard Tennessee were getting new uniforms but I think they tweaked too much. They do need to modernise the shoulder yoke but Columbia blue suits them better than navy and white helmets look better than navy ones. Used a bolder number font too. Updated list: Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins New England Patriots (V.2) Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals Houston Texans Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Oakland Raiders Dallas Cowboys Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers Tampa Bay Buccaneers Arizona Cardinals LA Rams San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks (V.2)
  13. 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.
  14. I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  15. Maybe there is hope after all! Crossing fingers it goes back to the traditional look... Tony Grossi‏Verified account @TonyGrossi 11m 11 minutes ago Dee Haslam confirmed to me another full # Browns uniform re-do could be in the works soon as new window opens in 2020.

    San Francisco 49ers Concept Logo

    Hello! My first post here and of course would love to hear your thoughts. I'm slowly becoming a niners fan?? but their current logo just doesn't do it for me so I had to do something. It's just looks very dated to me. Anyways, I also played around with some wordmarks to go with it, but figured I'd get the general idea out there first to see if there was any interest. Check it out and, please, let me know what you think! Thanks!
  17. Though the Hall of Fame game between the Bears and the Ravens is still a month and a half away, I thought I'd take the initiative to fire up the uniform match-up combos thread for the upcoming 2018 season. For starters, we have two confirmations: BRONCOS: Orange color rush vs. the Steelers in Week 12, alternate navy blue vs. the Chiefs & Browns in Weeks 4 & 15, respectively. It is unknown as to whether the Broncos will wear the navy or the white pants with the navy jerseys (for the KC & CLE games). https://www.9news.com/article/sports/nfl/denver-broncos/mike-klis/broncos-color-rush-uniforms-coming-home-vs-steelers/73-561375123 STEELERS: Black color rush vs. the Panthers in Week 10. https://steelerswire.usatoday.com/2018/04/20/steelers-to-wear-color-rush-uniforms-november-8-versus-panthers/

    The NFL (8/32; Patriots added)

    To kick this series off, I'm going with the Dolphins, Titans and Jaguars since those are the teams that will soon unveil new designs in the real world. (Please hold template requests, I will provide at end of the series in SVG format) THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE BY BRAVE-BIRD 08 MIAMI DOLPHINS For Miami I wanted to focus on using layers of white and dark grey to mimic an actual dolphin, while letting a more vibrant teal and shade of orange pop off the uniform. I've seen a lot of Miami concepts in the past use the sunburst as a focal point of the design, so I wanted to go in a different direction and use the swooping feel of the logo to tie the look together. The helmet is much more modern iteration, while the pants are intended to echo the feel of the helmet as well. ALTERNATES ONE | ALTERNATES TWO | ALTERNATES THREE Thanks for viewing! Next up: Tennessee Titans
  19. I think the Eagles have a great logo and I'm a big fan of their midnight green color, but I think they just have too much going on with black, charcoal gray and silver accompanying the green. In my opinion, the Eagles look best when they are wearing only green, silver and white, so this concept is more of a clean-up than a full on rebrand. I was also inspired by what the Detroit Lions did with their logo an uniforms this past season. Those are not perfect, but I really like the idea of what the Lions did. Here's my take on the logo: nothing too exciting, the green is a touch more green and the black is gone. The new wordmark is my take on a simpler, less "XTREME" version of the current wordmark and is more in line with the contemporary branding in the NFL: bold, single color lettering with some serifs and a bridge shape to give it some character. Here are the new home and road uniforms. Less is more as the uniforms are reminiscent of the current duds but are without the needless clutter of superfluous colors and embellishment. The Color Rush uniform is gray in the same style of the primary uniforms and the regular alternate uniform is a midnight green version of the classic throwback uniforms thanks to the one-helmet rule. So, thats it. Thanks for taking a look and I'm definitely open to any and all C&C and feedback.
  20. I have been snooping around on here for a while and I am ready to give it a shot. Because I am getting on Spring Break right now, I decided I would do a project. I am going to be refreshing and redesigning many big four sports teams. Here's a list: MLB Baltimore Orioles Tampa Bay Rays (Page 2) Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Houston Astros Los Angeles Angels Oakland A's Texas Rangers New York Mets (Page 1) Philadelphia Phillies (Page 1) Cincinnati Reds Pittsburgh Pirates Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants NHL Boston Bruins New York Islanders New York Rangers Washington Capitals Los Angeles Kings (Page 2) San Jose Sharks NFL Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers Kansas City Chiefs (Page 2) New York Jets Indianapolis Colts Green Bay Packers Washington Redskins NBA Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Orlando Magic (Page 1) Dallas Mavericks Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Lakers Utah Jazz (Page 2) Here's the first team Team: Philadelphia Phillies League: MLB Reason for Update: Too much for too little The old Phillies logo is just too busy for no reason. I got rid of the baseball field outline and the underline. C&C Apperciated. Next team will be the Mets so stay tuned!

    Wideright updates the NFL

    Thought I would take my shot at "fixing" the Jags, Titans and then maybe a few other NFL teams that just don't feel right to me. First up, the Jags. They want simple, so I give them a simple uniform but not so simple as to look like a Div-2 college. Teal is the primary, black the secondary, and if they feel they must, they can go unitard with all black or all white on a hot August day. I envision the primaries as White jersey-black pants and teal jersey-white pants. Note the angled stripes are on the sleeve cuff, pants and socks.

    Minor League Football

    I've been toying with this project on and off for years. It's something I do every now and again to unwind, and I really wish I put more priority on it, but I digress. Anyway, I've always felt the NFL has demonstrated a need for a minor league. Arguably, the NCAA fills that need, but while college football no doubt produces talent, the NFL lacks the ability to send players back to the minors. Further, I think we may be reaching a point where the NCAA is becoming obsolete. From television contracts, to video games, to merchandise, NCAA football generates billions in revenue. And yet only a small fraction of schools actually reap a profit from their football programs. Football is a sport that epitomizes the pay-to-play idiom, and unsurprisingly, the schools that generate the most money are also the most well-funded. The fact that that funding is allocated out of university budgets is not without controversy. And to exacerbate that issue, the NCAA restrictions on player compensation border on exploitation. In theory, student athletes are compensated via college scholarships, but many schools float student-athletes with made-up course. NCAA scandals are numerous, and it may be past time to separate athletics from academics. This project images a professional league to replace college football, with operations modeled roughly off of minor league baseball. I have a four-tier minor league system in mind, with 128 teams. Some are in markets formally served by the NCAA, and some... not so much. I know 128 sounds like a lot (and it is) but between Division-I FBS, Division-I FCS, Division II, and Division III, it's not like the NCAA doesn't have hundreds of teams. My school of thought is that allowing each NFL team to maintain four developmental teams, in theory, it would eliminate the fierce competition in the NFL draft while paying players for what would otherwise be their college years. This means the NFL owners would pay more of a flat rate across the board for new players rather than the ludicrous draft pick bonuses we have in practice today. Also, I have always held the Green Bay model of ownership in high regard, and I envision something of a hybrid system, with each host market having at least some percent owned at the city, county, or state/provincial level, and some percentage of ownership available for shareholders, while the bulk percentage is held by private ownership. This would allow host markets at least some control over relocation bids, but also allow at least some validity for the use of public money. As a matter of course, every US state and nearly every Canadian province is granted at least one team. National Football League I have very little in mind for the NFL itself. I would like to rebrand Washington and Kansas City (my girlfriend is Cherokee, so we refrain from the R-word). And while it won't really impact this project, I did opt to make a new map of the NFL. I based the four tiers of my minor league on the east-vs-west system used in the NBA and NHL. Football and baseball are the only major-league sports to use the National-American conference system (that I know of), because both leagues expanded by merging with competing organizations. So more for my own what-if curiosity than anything else, I created this realignment map. Personally, I find the new divisions that resulted rather intriguing, but that's just my own biased opinion. A lot of old rivalries would be upset, but I'm curious how making the NFL divisions more geographically oriented would ultimately impact the league. Alpha Football League The Alpha League consists of the largest markets not served directly by the NFL. The minimum NFL salary is about half a million, but here, the salary would be about a quarter million. This would equate to the NCAA Div-I FBS, with players that have worked their way up from the Beta league. San Diego and St. Louis once again become host to professional football franchises. And I ultimately decided for sake of this project to absorb the CFL into this project. Notably, I granted a franchise to Mexico. The conversion rate for the Mexican peso is not as strong as the rate between American and Canadian dollars, plus American football has limited popularity outside the United States. As a result, I opted to place the sole Mexican franchise where lies the strongest support. Monterrey, it turns out, has the highest affinity for the NFL in Mexico. Beta Football League The Beta League simply follows the above pattern with the largest markets not served in the Alpha League. The minimum salary would be $125K, and would consist of players that have finished their time in the Gamma League. It would equate to the Div-I FCS. The only real note to the Beta League is that it includes Hawaii. I had some concerns on remoteness, but the NCAA finances transportation for game in Hawaii, so assuming all operational costs were covered by the NFL (an entity that made an estimated $14B in 2017), then travel expenses for smaller markets becomes less of a concern. Gamma Football League Minimum salary in the Gamma League drops to $62,500, higher than the national median income, but we're getting down to blue-collar football here. These are the players that have made it a year or two in the Delta League and have made their first jump up the ranks. Delta Football League This is the bottom of the barrel, with media markets down to about three hundred thousand on average, with the smallest market being Casper, Wyoming. I opted to include a team in The Bahamas, as the sport is growing in popularity there and it would increase exposure to American Football in the Caribbean. And Anchorage, while by far the northernmost city in this project, is purportedly not much worse in winter than Seattle, with the surrounding oceans mitigating much of the harsher Alaskan winters. With a minimum salary down to $31,250, this would be the league that recruits players directly out of high school and takes walk-on try-outs. It would be comparable to Div-III, essentially the Single-A Short Season league of professional football. Assuming a player plays one year in each league, they'd earn roughly half a million over four years before signing with the NFL. And at any time, whether for salary cap reasons or recovery from injury, the NFL would have the ability to send players down to the minors. On a final note, I have concepts in mind for about half these markets, so I'm open to suggestions. EDIT: I apologize for the frequent edits since posting. I'd written the entire post in HTML... only to find that the forum displays HTML as naked code, which wasn't my intention. I didn't have access to my computer till this morning and my phone browser was rather temperamental with the post editor. EDIT: Replaced images since I'd stupidly mixed up Chattanooga and Knoxville in my map. EDIT: Changed cities in the Delta League Map.
  23. I am fascinated, like many others, with failed expansion and relocation of big league sports teams. While I am aware of most from the MLB and NBA, there's still a lot I don't know about the NFL and NHL failed bids. I thought this thread would be a fun place to share some of those failed expansion and relocated teams. If there are any proposed logos, uniforms, etc. please share those! MLB St. Louis Browns failed move to Los Angeles (1941) San Diego Padres failed move to Washington (1974) San Francisco Giants failed moves to Toronto (1975) and St. Petersburg (1992) NFL Los Angeles Rams failed move to Baltimore (1994) The failed Seattle Kings expansion (1976) The failed St. Louis Stallions, Baltimore Bombers, Memphis Hound Dogs expansion (1995) NBA Sacramento Kings failed move to Anaheim (2011) and Seattle (2012) Charlotte Hornets failed move to Memphis (2001) The failed Anaheim and Toronto expansion (1988/89) NHL St. Louis Blues failed move to Saskatoon (1983) Nashville Predators failed move to Hamilton (2007) The failed Hampton Roads Rhinos expansion (1997)
