    To me these are exactly the types of designs that prove that "unique" doesn't equate to "good."See, I prefer to take the stance of "Yeah, it's bad. What can be done to make it better?" To me, true innovation is often found in improving upon failures, as opposed to refining successes. I guess that's why I like stuff like 90's design, there's often so much potential that gets ignored in favor of everyone pointing and laughing.Don't get me wrong, these are terrible. With that being said, I see a few interesting things that are worth looking at further. Sometimes it's good to stop, take a look at, and study "unique" designs, whether "good" or "bad," rather than constantly laud and praise the same old designs that have been around for decades. We know that they're good and always will be, so why waste time talking about how great they are? That doesn't promote progress, that promotes stagnation.

    He'll make a fine third line centre for a team that will lose in the Eastern Conference Final again.

    Just some slight tweaks to what bugs me about Ohio State's uniforms. Firstly, some more silver is included in the uniform with the sleeve striping, making the striping still match without leaving out a school color entirely on the red jersey and without having to use a non-matching sleeve stripe on the white jersey. Secondly, I used the unique number font they currently use in basketball, which is unique enough to be "theirs" without being modern enough to clash with the classic feel of the uniforms.

    I don't see any reason to believe that this could possibly be a "real competitor league to the NFL". If anything, they'll feed off the scraps, counting on being able to pick up viewership and sales when the NFL's season is over but there's still interest in the sport. Nothing wrong with that, but it is what it is.

    Cam Ward looks like a beer league goalie these days. My god. He reminds me of MA Fleury in the playoffs.

Very well said, sir Sorry, I have to disagree. If something is bad, then it's bad. And these designs are just that, bad. Of course elements within the overall design have potential, but the goal should be to point out that these elements work, but that the way they're being used isn't working. "Yeah, it's bad, but it's also unique and we can't stagnate!" rubs me the wrong way because it's like saying "even though what works still works we need to change it for the sake of change." Which, in my opinion, isn't a healthy philosophy.

    I wonder if the Sens will use their vintage white heritage uniforms again during the season. And i hope it gets promoted to the full time road jsersey along with the black one becoming the full time home. Finally, the Sens would have their own identity !

    Hehe yep. He signs, it's a big deal because he's the first openly gay athlete to play in the "big four" and then it becomes business as usual once he gets down to actually playing the game. The Nets' locker room didn't descend into chaos, the NBA didn't implode, and fans didn't turn away. It's almost like an openly gay player didn't harm the game at all!

    When I think of Miami - specifically 1980's Miami - I think of neon signs, lights everywhere and fonts that are very hand script looking, cursive, or that have sort of a "scrolling marquee" element to them.

    No matter how anyone sees this, the all mighty dollar controls and runs all sports. With sponsorship on jerseys, it creates a bigger brand for the team as well as more revenue. That's why of the top 10 sports teams in the world, six are football/soccer because of their "branding" presence. No coincidence at all. And it is the way of the future especially the NBA as they are falling behind the NFL and MLB.

    it quite sucks doesn't it? I wish we could still enter and forgo the actual physical copy of the game part of the prize while still possibly getting in the game. ------------------- and now for one of my others: London Crusaders The London Black Knights didn't sit right for me, so I went with the Crusaders. I also thought I'd go a bit crazy with the shiny stuff, I figured if the NFL went with a London team they'd spare no expense on the materials for the uniforms. Basically I wanted to try and make the football uniform equivalent of this: and I came up with this (no proper logo as yet) Gold shiny bits everywhere...lol...and a Rutgers-y helmet. I wasn't really sure what to do with the pants so I just went with a simple stripe trimmed in gold. I even considered adding a long sleeved undershirt with a light chainmail pattern on it, and having the same pattern in the grey areas.

    Thanks for all the kind words! I have plans for a secondary or tertiary that is a T with the horns and beard of the bison head, any thoughts on that idea? Also, should I make a profile or 3/4 view of the bison head?

    Sorry for being late to the party, and I know I'm in the minority here, but I love the old English C. Especially with the hidden le. This iteration has perfect subtlety on the le. Don't like the laurels on the chest, regardless of color, but love it in the logo here. Roundels may be overdone in baseball, but they're overdone for a reason. My only concern with this version is its similarity to the Twins newish primary. Maybe the red and blue could be inverted? Except for the C, keep that red, it's choice. What I really like about this version is the tinkering actually made this look a little bit reminiscent of the 70's caveman style script. If that was on purpose, it was noticed and it's to good historical effect. This roundel would make a fine shoulder patch, love the racing stripes. Confine the laurels to the shoulder patch, and for Cleveland's sake, don't advertise the fact that the Indians have only won two Series in 109 chances.

    For my money, New York Red Bulls is about a zillion times a better look and brand than the old MetroStars. The original name was so bush league, and none of the rebrandings could have saved it. For my money -- even though it's essentially an ad -- this: Looks so much better than this: And especially this:

    Yikes, didn't even know these were realeased. I'll shed some light on this... I was a part of this whole rebrand during the beginning of 2013. It was a real exciting opportunity for me and, although my designs were eventually scrapped, the final designs are pretty remarkable. It's odd to me, however, how much effort they put forth to cap my creativity and stay deadset on using traces of the old USFL logos, while they let the current designer roam free. I know a few other designers who were a part of this as well. They probably dropped a big buck on this whole rebrand strictly because they were unsure of what they wanted. Oh and that Stag helmet looks awfully similar to a concept I had made for my fictional league, so much so that they even left "Rage" in the bottom right corner of the display. Hmm.

    It's a funny one, that one. It's a really nice kit, looks really good. But it doesn't scream "Japan" when you look at it. As a matter of fact, with that logo and colour shade, from far away it looks like Cambodia.

    Stade Pierre Mauroy, home of OSC Lille, was finished in 2012. From StadiumDB: The ground is very innovative thanks to half-retractable pitch that has not been used in any stadium before. The system provides one part of the field covering the other on massive railings and revealing yet another tier of seating, this time around a smaller field for basketball/volleyball/tennis. Along with curtain dividing the stadium into halves and first French retractable roof it may thus become a indoor arena for concerts and sports events, with the playing field remaining untouched in the ‘closed’ part of the stadium.

    Off topic, but that monument logo always reminded me of something, but I couldn't put my finger on it. But I realized recently that it was the NBA Store logo. Different execution, but a similar concept. It almost could be the same ball at a different angle. Anyway, search for Atlanta Hawks and $500,000 on this site if you want more info on the fee to change primary logos. If it didn't originate there it was copied and pasted, but I want to say it was the AJC that finally put in print what we had been told was true for years by insiders.

    In regards to commercials, professional hockey (NHL, AHL) spends 300 seconds per period (three 100 second timeouts) for commercials. That's five extra minutes, or an extra 15 minutes per game. During that time, the teams take a break (there are strict rules concerning when you can/can't take a TV timeout. Not on icings, during a powerplay, in the last minute of a period, or last three minutes of the third period), the ice is scraped with shovels (in front of the benches, penalty boxes, and nets) and the refs and linesmen get a chance to catch their breath and take a drink (remember, they're still going during the off-play). It may slow the game down, but it's a necessary evil. Not only does it bring in money to the TV station/team, it gives the game-ops crew time to announce such things as jersey raffles and the 50/50 winner. TV timeouts have their place. Ads on jerseys in the Big Four don't.

    I'm not bashing the NBA for trying to make all the cash they can... I'm criticizing the way that they're trying to make that money by ruining their teams' visual identities to chase a quick buck. It's very minor league and cheapens the image of the league.

    I actually love the current rams wordmark. It's simple, while also have that feel that most classics have. Call me biased, but i think with the dophins getting rid of their cursive wordmark, its the best in the NFL right now

    Next up is my current city of Vancouver. I wanted to go with a double blue colour scheme as an allusion to the double blue of sea and sky here on the west coast. The name Blues seemed to fit well with that as well. The wavy lines are taken from Vancouver's city flag. I like the wave kit, but I think it works better as an alternate because its a bit out there.
