Jerseys are colored to replicate the firefighters' uniforms they're named for.

Right. I was responding to a description that they were "gross".  As a member of the largest wildland firefighting organization in the country and somebody responsible for hiring many of them, our organization is gravitating to the Arizona team. Wearing their polo to work today.

with only eight team, all centrally owned, I’m not sure clash jerseys should ever be necessary.  They should be able to create eight sufficiently-distinguishable uniforms.

We did have one this weekend already, can't really have dark blue vs black?  Just one set seems kind of pop warner to me.

No uniform designed in the last fifteen years should have sleeve striping.  

I would disagree ocerall, but for this league sleeve caps with opposing colors is the league aesthetic. Including patterns on the sleeves would help teams like San Antonio who look like they got Cologne Centurion yokes and Raleigh-Durham Skyhawk jerseys mixed together. Placing the Alamo logo on the sleeves would improve the look. I think it's weird that no team has sleeve logos but the two sets of fan jerseys do.

Interesting that they also have their numbers in the same spot near the neck area. I love that the nfl/ncaa has a bit more variations. And as you mentioned, no team logos anywhere. Not even a team name above the front numbers.  Very cookie cutter template wise. 

 

Some of the fan gear is better than the on field jerseys.

Whoa--just noticed the "AZ" hidden in that helmet stripe. Creative stroke of genius right there.

 

Its also on the side stripes.

I'm pretty sure when I was watching highlights of the Orlando/Atlanta game that Atlanta had the crown logo on both sides of their helmet, it was tough to tell though.

Every team plays each other. And with both being in the West, they'll play twice, home and home.

 

Roger that.

 

Side note: where the heck have you been hiding at???

I think the whole idea is that they’re actually named in honor of the Yarnell 19. That’s a great move. I lived in Tempe when that happened, and the response was the one time I was genuinely proud of Arizona residents. It was a terrible tragedy, and they responded about as honorably as one can.

Atlanta is a mess from top to bottom.  Coaching staff issues aside, the logo is epic inconsistency:

There's the first logo of gold crown and white bar, the alternate seen only on certain items with an "A" and then the helmet where the logo's all-gold without the white bar.  It's like they can't decide which they want to run with.

I'm thinking orange jerseys. Only because Memphis' primary is navy blue.

If they kept the yokes they'd look like the Amsterdam Admirals which is a pretty good look.

That was a great look. And they would be similar.

Memphis' primary shouldn't have any bearing on what Orlando's clash jersey is since Orlando's primary jersey of white has sufficient clash with Memphis' primary color.

Not what I meant. I realize there would be no need for clash jerseys when Orlando and Memphis play each other. I'm saying the AAF may not want multiple teams sharing a jersey color with the league being so small. With that train of thought, I feel that Orlando's clash jersey could end up being orange just for the sake of there being something different.

OK - so it took me a while to dig into the website to find all of these, but I think I finally got 8 CLEAN AAF team logo .PNG graphics for the community.  I honestly didn't see these posted on the site in a consistent size, so I offer them up here.  (Note to CCSLC mods - I originally posted the https locations...I think the behind the scenes code auto-converted them to images.)
