I just read through the whole league. I really like the color combinations that you have going on with the teams and every logo and uniform has been done well. There are some minor things that I don't like (i.e. the numbers for Arizona, the primary and secondary logos for Milwaukee should be switched), but most of it is spot on. I'd like to do a spinoff of this myself...
Wow... A spinoff? That's an intriguing proposal. I'll tell you what, let me finalize my template, and it will be free range then. If you need ideas, just shoot me a PM.
For all you guys waiting for the next team, I've been busy, so team 17 will be up probably Monday. With summer coming, the series will probably end around the 4th of July.
Why the expletive can't Green Bay or Chicago ever host a Super Bowl!?!?!? Don't say weather or hotel space or size, because, and this pains me to say this, Chicago is comparable to next year's host. Two of the oldest and most venerable franchises in NFL history don't get to host it? It seems like they are starting to move away from the warm weather only sites, so why not those places. I know Green Bay would be a logistical nightmare, but wouldn't you want to showcase the Premier Event at the most hallowed place in football Lambeau Field?
Doesn't the city put out the SB bids? If so, then it's not a can't matter, it's a doesn't matter. And besides, Chicago could get it, but if Green Bay puts out a bid, why shouldn't Charlotte, Cleveland, Seattle, or Washington? (Stadiums aside.)
The Bobcats brand was poorly conceived from the start (the first owner naming the team after himself was a joke) and was a screeching trainwreck on wheels the minute they started wearing those bland blue alternates instead of their unique orange uniforms. Every single change from their inaugural look was a downgrade.
Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets brand remains strong, memorable, and iconic. Nobody will miss the Bobcats name. Good riddance.
Despite the initial strong fan support for the Hornets didn't their fan base give up on them and run the owner and franchise out of town?
So while Hornets 2.0 will not be run by the former despised and disgraced owner, they are still the worst performing and managed franchise in the league.
This is NBA version of the Cleveland Browns or Washington Senators. Double Fail.
At least they'll lose in style. Right?
But they do need some energy in that team. Be it player, coach, new name, whatever. Maybe it will come this year, next year, or ten years down the road. And playing in the same division as the NBA's mega team hurts the record a lot.
I've always been this close to supporting the Bobcats. Maybe the move will give me my breakthrough.
