Rampart, this team name and alot of the concepts are rip-offs from my Pittsburgh Hammers basketball team. I made a thread back on November 14, 2012. Here is the link: http://boards.sports...burgh +hammers.
The colors, wordmark, I mean.. where do I begin? What's the deal??
I'm sure you're not the first person to come up with the name "Hammers" for a team in Pittsburgh. I don't think you have enough evidence to call foul.
As for the concept, I love it. Rendering is clean and I like how glossy it looks. Fantastic.
