  1. Past hour
  2. Aaaaaaaaand if I can, make it there, I'll make it... Anywhere. It's up to you, Charleston, South, Carolinaaaaaaaa.
  3. Oh yeah! I remember these three.... the LSUdogs, the blue crabs of Baltimore and the tribute to Ireland.
  4. Expecting Montreal to go from league membership to Toronto's farm club is like when people expected Quebec City to go from league membership to Montreal's farm club. It's a setup for failure and the blame always goes to the people at bottom of the chain.
  5. Up next we have the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs engage in a three way rivalry with New York State and Staten Island, but are bitter rivals with Staten Island, who are also a private Catholic University. Brooklyn University Location: Brooklyn, New York Type: Private University Founded: 1901 Religious Affiliation: Roman Catholic Major Rivals: Staten Island, New York State
  6. Set it ok but I LOVE the all color vs all white games. Visually better.
  7. A's look terrific! This should be their full time look.
  8. You say that like the gambling industry isn’t the main focus of LV and all other entertainment is just there to filter people to the casinos.
  9. If NYC seceded it would lose support of the rest of the US and all the companies would find a new east coast port city like Jacksonville or Charleston to move to, and probably enjoy the lower tax rates for a time.
  10. Let's continue the series staying on the West Coast with the Oakland A's! During the 70’s, the Oakland Athletics peaked, both competitively and aesthetically speaking. One of the figures most associated with those A’s is the one and only Reggie “Mr. October” Jackson. And, at the same time, one of the images most associated with him are those iconic sleeveless uniforms. With this design, I looked to bring back the team’s golden era, back when they shined, not only in the standings, but also on the field.
  11. First of all, I like to thank everyone for their feedback. It's been really helpful with giving the new teams their name. For the moment I've been working on some concepts for the different cities. Here are some previews. 1. Milwaukee Eagles This is more or less a finished design. In the end I went with Eagles instead of other ideas. Since it is in theory a continuation of the amateur Bavarian Soccer Club, going with an eagle to represent it's German ancestry seemed like a good idea. I tried to replicate the German style of crest design without going a bit to simplistic. The club's colors are blue and white (taken from the Bavarian Flag) and black. 2. Las Vegas Atoms I really like this name, I think it fits a Las Vegas team. So starting from there I drew up an atom type shape with a soccer ball at it's center. I also tried to incorporate an A into the overall design. While I think i had the overall design right, it felt like there was nothing representing the city of Las Vegas in the design. So I added in the other shape, which is based on the famous "Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas" sign. I'm not quite sure about the colors used however. Some neon colors accompanied with a darker shade would work well. 2. San Diego Santos This is maybe the crest that's the most rough around the edges, but most of the main things I want to implement are already there. I wanted to base it off the classic designs found in Brazil but with a twist. The top of the crest shape is based on the Mission San Diego de Alcalá bell tower with it's distinctive shape. above that is an Aureola to represent the club's name. I tried to incorporate more elements from the bell tower in the top half of the crest but it just seems out of place. For the wordmark I'm not sure what font to use but the one used here is a place holder until I can come up with something better. The colors I used are Brown and Yellow but I also want to use White somewhere in there.
  12. I would guess they will wear black because it's a primetime game and last primetime game they wore black
  13. Today
  14. Stop the violence, make a change. We're all in the same gang.
  15. FWIW there's a poster on the Sens HFBoards that claims to have a reliable source within the organization, saying that the team will go back to a black jersey with a modified 2D centurion logo for next season. He claims it will look something along the lines of these (minus the heritage sweater): I can't really attest to how reliable this person or his source is, but he's trusted on the board so I think it's worth noting. There has been a lot of turnover but I wouldn't suspect that the CMO leaving would push a redesign that's (supposedly) already in progress too far back.
  16. Love the Trailblazers name, the crest is a good start, but I would simplify it, especially the trees.
  17. so #LionsVsRefs is trending, and I don't live anywhere close to Michigan. people are pissed.
  18. Perhaps, but for now its better than Calgary's, Winnipeg's and Ottawa's IMO. I dont care that much for Edmonton's current homes either (too much bright orange) ...and Toronto, while a classic look, is still a bit drab to me compared to the crispness of the Canucks' blue and green. So Id say they're safely in the top 10 and probably top 4 in Canada. IMHO.
  19. It's a giant poop!!!! Gotta change colors.
  20. Gonna have to agree with this statement. It is a look that works for them, but saying top 10 in the whole league is the cause of some rose-tinted glasses. My opinion on the Canucks identity has gone down dramatically because of this thread. Worse part is that it isn’t due to the flaws being pointed out, but instead I connect the team to pages and pages of ongoing opinions and bickering now.
  21. Up next we head to Boston for the Shamrocks. Boston State University Location: Boston, Massachusetts Type: Public University Founded: 1895 Major Rivals: Springfield, Worcester
  22. Well, what else did you expect from an AHL affiliate of the Calgary Flames, Stockton?
  23. Bronze! Okay, yeah. I feel like bronze basically looks like a darker copper and, like pewter, has brownish tones/looks brown. I'm not trying to "gotcha," I just want to see how you are distinguishing the colors differently than I do. Again, you can argue that it's more accurate to pewter. And you can certainly prefer the use of shiny fabrics (I personally find them ugly). But yeah, I think there's clearly some brownish tones in the old pewter. Silver becomes gray without the metallic aspect, but I'd argue that silver inherently has grayish tones. Same applies to pewter and brown IMO. And because the new matte finish is darker than the old one, shiny fabric or no, the brown stands out much less to me. Anyway, I think we can move on.
  24. I'm unsure. I get that you're fishing for "brown" but that's not accurate. It can come off a dull bronze or silver, depending on the finish. Either way? Take away the metallic aspect and it's not pewter. Much like how silver becomes grey without the metallic aspect.
  25. I know all about that drunken sot, whose racist comments about "the ethnic vote" (which was a slap not only at Jews, but also at Italians and people of other ethnicities) after the loss in the 1995 referendum led to his ouster as PQ leader and Quebec premier. No movement should be judged by its worst distorters. In fact the Quebecois identity is broad and pluralistic, embracng francophones of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. By the way, if Montreal could not support a Major League team, it might be a good location for a Blue Jays minor league affilliate. The Jays' fit with AAA Buffalo is too perfect to mess with. But a AA team named the Montreal Expos and owned outright by the Blue Jays would have a much lower bar for success.
