You know what, I am not sure if Reds is logical since we have the Chicago Redshirts in this league...

Well, only a day before the deadline, and I really want to get this done, so the names are in. 'Twas a hard choice for LA, but @Jimmy Lethal's choice of Los Angeles Stars was a winner in my opinion. I'm sorry if your name wasn't chosen.

 

Colorado Kodiaks

Los Angeles Stars

Atlanta Gladiators

Dallas Outlaws

Seattle Trappers

Miami Marauders (*cough*heavily favored*cough*)

Good news - I got Adobe Illustrator back, and I will be working on uniforms for the expansion teams as well as a rebrand for one existing team.

Here's all I've got for tonight: The Colorado Kodiaks (who will begin playing in the 1960-61 season)

I think the Bear Logo needs a little work, it looks like he's gonna sneeze or something

Yes that looks much better for the Kodiaks, but Miami's sword should perhaps be more Cutlass like? That sorta Swords screams more Gladiator than Maruader

Here's the new and improved Miami Marauders. Realizing part of the cutlass looked like a "D", I redid the primary logo, but kept the (modified) original logo as a secondary. The secondary logo has also moved from the side to the front of the shorts.

Haven't been on the thread in a while but I love the Pats look. Also Miami is perfect!

Here's an Easter gift for you guys: 2 more teams. Los Angeles and Atlanta. I have been working on Seattle and it's difficult coming up with a good idea for Dallas.

 

Los Angeles Stars

Who knew, the ABA actually had a team called the Los Angeles Stars. However, they later relocated to Salt Lake City and folded.

Just saw the same post from you in the PHL forum, and I thought about it, but I'm thinking about an Arby's-esque cowboy hat with a D on it. Maybe a secondary logo?

Maybe combine the two, the Pistols on the Hat?
