  1. Past hour
  2. This sounds like a really cool project. How do you plan on simulating the seasons and keeping track of everything?
  3. Told you it was already done. Netanya Introduction: This concept almost looked very, very different. Netanya, interestingly, was named after Nathan Strauss, the founder and owner of Macy's Department Store, who had been giving away a large portion of his fortune to projects in the Land of Israel. The founders figured if it was named for him, he'd help them out, but he was out of cash, so they just... Kept it. I was originally planning on a Macy's design, but Netanya was also the "host" of an IBL 2007 team, and I went in that direction, instead. Netanya bills itself as "The Israeli Riviera," so I figured they deserved a slightly classy design. Logo and colors: The Netanya Tigers had great colors and awful design. If you don't believe me, click these. I kept the colors and the Tigers inspiration, but everything else is gone. The team and cap logo is the letter Nun bisected with a double-curved line intended to suggest both whiskers and a river, while also mimicking the wheat sheaves found on the city's flag. The specific orange used comes from that same flag, but the ugly blue they use is replaced by the one used by Detroit. The script on the chest is straight-up Tigers BP (do they still wear those, actually?). Cap: Blue crown, orange bill, orange button, Tiger Nun (sounds like an action movie). Let's do it. Jersey: Like I said, Tigers BP. Orange, Netanya in a big looping script angled across the chest, big bold chest number in blue, sleeves capped in blue to add a splash of color. Pants: Double the stripes and turn the belt orange, then move on. Socks: Standard issue blue with a splash of orange. Up next: Zichron! I have some fun ideas.
  4. Today
  5. Baseball: White at home, gray (or sand/powder blue) on the road, and you can wear color alternates on Sundays and maybe one more day a week, if I like you. We've been playing in the same kinds of uniforms for decades, and now we're getting all hip and modern and I don't like it. Get off my lawn and go put on a white shirt.
  6. I told you! North to Karmiel or back to the 90s, though, I'm not sure. This might be one of my favorites so far. Lessdo it. Karmiel Introduction: Karmiel was established in 1964, and it's aaaallll the way north. Not far from the border, it became an official city (as opposed to a settlement or town) in the eighties, and really took off with an explosion of immigrants moving in during the nineties, so maybe the colors and look isn't totally off-base (it wasn't intentional) I swear. Karmiel means the Vineyards of G-d, which has nothing to do with the design, I just think it's nice, and it's situated in the Beit HaKerem Valley, smack in the middle of the Galil region, which does come back in the design. Let's get to it. Logo and colors: I started with a red flower, which comes from the city's Coat of Arms, and went with one that looked more sun-like than standard (to match the sun that's also on that Coat of Arms, they're really good for inspiration, guys), and then gave it a gold K for Karmiel that fit. It came out a little nineties, but I rolled with it. The shades of both the red and gold come from the same Coat of Arms, as does the green which we'll see later. Cap: It came out a drop McDonald's-y, which I can eat now, that's pretty cool. Red crown to contrast with the bright gold jersey, gold crown because monochrome caps are boring, the logo is color-flipped and the button is green to bring it all together. Neat-o! Jersey: Here's that bright gold jersey I was just talking about. Big logo on the chest because while the font I used I quite liked for the K, it became a bit much when I scrawled Karmiel across the whole thing. No number, because reasons. The sleeves bear dancetty stripes in green with white outlines to mimic the mountains around Karmiel and on the city's Coat of Arms, they're very green in both places (seriously, it's gorgeous up there, go visit). Pants: Here we have some fun. Gold belt because why not. The stripes on the pants mimic the stripes on the sock, through without the mountains, so they're red-white-green-white-red, and the uniform number appears on the right thigh, because once you're in the nineties, might as well go all out. Socks: Red stirrups over white socks. That stripe from the sleeves combines with the stripe from the pants, green outlined in white over red, for a classy look to tie it all together. Up next: Netanya, as soon as my challah comes out of the oven! It's already done, so cool.
  7. So are the Bills, Texans and Vikings not likely to go the distance this season? (I don't think Chargers and Cards gonna make it far this year.)
  8. Better look at the Arkansas State unis.
  9. This is really creative I can't wait to see the logos of teams!

    Your take on the Sounders looks good, I'm always up for the blue sleeves. The pattern is nice, but the spaces without emeralds feel a tad empty to me (maybe a small, solid diamond shape could work in those spots?) Also, the logo needs a white outline since the gray gets lost in the blue. The Quakes' home is quite nice. The away is fine in a vacuum but it feels a lot like a US or Chivas concept. I would ditch the blue and just go red & white. That would feel more SJ to me. Your Portland home is perfect--no edits necessary. I think the gradient feels a bit unnecessary on the away, you could just go red or white. I love that bear-only logo for Sacramento's away! You should use it home and away!
  11. That Vikings logo + helmet update is excellent, and the shade of purple is really classy. Good call! I like your color rush as-is, but I agree with @simtek34's suggestion to do a throwback of the '64 uniforms.
  12. I know, it's yet another Seattle concept... What can I say, I get excited! Here's my take on the return of the Sonics: For some reason, the Sonics only ever had one logo with a plane, and even so it was ridiculously small. Here, it's front and center! The primary logo has a motion line around the Space Needle, influenced by the campy '90s logo. The secondary logo is my modernization of the classic skyline logo. The font is modified Daggersquare. The two main jerseys sport the Sonics' traditional curved stripe + wordmark. The side paneling has a sound wave pattern. The city jersey is inspired by Seattle's aviation history. I think Seattle's "Jet City" nickname would be an apt Sonics response to "Rip City," "Buzz City," etc. The color is from Seattle's flag, with a cloudy sky pattern for the side paneling. Finally, to add some retro yellow to the set, the throwback is the beautiful 1971 jersey. Let me know what you think! I'll post my court designs soon.
  13. All sports: Players must wear suits to and from the stadium. Less of this: More of this:
  14. I wonder if the Rangers would change their identity during moving to a new ballpark? If they definitely change it, I hope they brought their star badge logo and modernize it or brought the Ryan-era identity back. But I actually liked their first logo and font and it's very western.
  15. In 1966, Montréal mayor Jean Drapeau spearheads an initiative to bring underground transportation to the city of Montréal. The following year, the 1967 World's Fair comes to the island. To celebrate this joyous moment, the City of Montréal will join together and create a 26 team soccer league featuring the original metro stations. Each with a team playing in the individual neighbourhood, featuring sponsorship by prominent businesses and home/away shirts inspired by the metro specific art and design. Take a trip back to 1967 with me, while we explore the formulation of the Montréal Subway Soccer League. From the above map, you can see that the stations have been divided into Northern and Southerns divisions, just North of the major hub Berri-de-Montigny. Twenty six teams, split up into the two divisions. Over the next few weeks, and months, I'll be creating team logos, home/away shirts, and introducing the individual neighbourhoods, featuring a little bit of backstory on each.
  16. I'm really loving the Lions set. the socks are clean and uniforms are pretty neat.
  17. Yeah I joined the forums in 2006 when they still had 26
  18. Yahoo's Pat Forte talked about Costello in practice with the 1st team on Sunday when seeing his daughter swim on Saturday and "took" Stanford on his picks
  19. :censored:show-right-now-1839105323
  20. San Diego needs to first replace the San Diego Sports Arena/iPay One Center/Valley View. It was nearly iconic circa 2002-03
  21. Lousy Stanford getting blown out by Crappy UCLA. Oh the Pac-12.
  22. The Bucks tweaked their black statement jersey. It now features the "Cream City Rainbow" from their old city jerseys.
  23. Didn't see this mentioned, but for some reason Duke and Virginia are doing this half-assed tribute to 150 years of college football...
  24. Stanford looks awful with the white outline around their numbers now. That’s probably one of my votes for biggest downgrade of the year.
