    Tampa Bay Lightning I decided to keep it simple based off of their already simple jerseys.

    While their chrome helmets are indeed awful, can you please not use that word?

    That's exactly what I'm talking about, and have been for half a decade. Reducing the ludicrous body armor, and requiring players to feel their impacts today instead of delaying them until an unspecified time in the future, is the only way to make the game safer.

    They're all the same. Bauer may be different because they're not in the sportswear business the way Nike, UA, and RBK are, but that could change if they get the uni contract (I'd asssume that would give them exclusive rights to market shirts, hoodies, and anything else that has licensed logos (other than maybe caps.)) People pined for Nike in NFL, then hated Nike. People want UA then hate UA. People want adidas then hate what adidas does. What it takes is a strong league making a contract that states specifcally what the supplier's role is, and what their limits are. Don't sign over creative control, don't sign that you'll use the supplier's in-house designers, don't sign anything that could lead down the wrong path. The NHL is far, far, far, from a strong league. It doesn't matter who the manufacturer is, they only design what the client asks for. If a designer, in house or whatever designs something that the client doesn't like, the client can deny it. All the bad designs aren't the fault of the manufacturers, but rather the teams/schools that agree to them. As a designer, you sit there and say, "Here's an idea". There have been times where as a designer, your told to design something hideous so that the client will pick something you think is really good, but then the client likes the hideous thing. It's happened to me, and when your higher up tells you to design something hideous and the client accepts it, you question your higher up. But honestly, bad design on the field/ice is the fault of the team/school, 100%. If you don't believe me, then why are teams like Montreal, Chicago, and the Rangers able to keep their now iconic looks? Because they said, "No" to everything else. Teams are allowed to say, "No". It's actually a word in the dictionary. And if you don't believe that teams have a say so in the design, look at the Stadium Series uniforms that were designed for Chicago and notice how that looks like Chicago and feels like Chicago, and yet it was designed in less time than the Islanders crappy 3rd jerseys and Buffalo's crappy 3rds. If it's a bad design, it's the team's fault.

    Oakland didn't work (This doesn't work the best on logos with a ton of black and white), but here's Notre Dame

    I'd support "The Wheel" if it were an actual wheel that the GMs got up and spun. EDIT: okay at this point I was going to post the Melody Roulette wheel from the old Name That Tune but then I looked it up on google image search and WHAT THE HOLY HELL Why, though? Why? I don't, why? Why is Sonic The Hedgehog hosting it? Why? I've never been so WHY?

    Relevant to your interests, TeamLAStore.com is offering to sew the Stadium Series patch on for an additional US$22.94. They're selling blank Ducks replicas for $160.54, or customized ones for $229.35. Obscene. I have a phrase in mind and it rhymes with "Clucking Bell". Always appreciate a Black Adder reference... As for staying on topic, what's the point in purchasing a special event jersey if it doesn't come complete with what makes it a special event jersey? If it was a "regular" alt jersey with a special patch, that's one thing. But this isn't...

    This is a quick and dirty design I had done a while ago, but never published. This is quick and dirty because I can't find the original design documents. When I find them, and probably do a bit of updating, I'll post them. Basically the main colors are a light brown (or tan if you prefer), black and sooner red. The picture represents the home uniform. I don't normally do NFL concepts, so mine probably sucks when it comes to the striping and such that most of the NFL concept guys here go into great detail about.

    Too cluttered, didn't read. Also, CFL-USA was a failure, straight and simple.

    Bauer getting the contract would be the best thing ever.
