Link to where I have flown off the handle at a slight. Let's see the evidence. Your entire post history? A few things. First. You mentioned showing some evidence. Think you could provide a link to anyone here freaking out like that over the Steelers' numbers? Secondly, you write Friday Nigh Lights fanfiction. You're in no position to judge what anyone else here does in their free time.

    There's something about the blueberries in Maine that have magic powers. I went there last summer, and we had blueberry everything. Blueberry beer with blueberries, blueberry pancakes, blueberry omelets, everything. I've had plenty of blueberries before, but there's something in the soil there that makes their blueberries like some kind of aphrodisiac. It's like their blueberries are actually viagra, except it works on womens too. Neither she nor I had ever been in "the mood" like that. Like... the whole time. It would be blueberry pancakes then business time, then some lobster-based something for lunch with some blueberry muffins, then business time, then blueberry beer then business time, then F dinner, it's business time. Spent an entire beautiful day in Bar Harbor that was supposed to be dedicated to hiking in Acadia inside*, because business. And to this day, I think it was the blueberries. I ordered a blueberry pancake kit from one of the places we ate at, and it came with canned Maine blueberries, and I think that they gave me a little something extra, but it was nothing like what I experienced up there. Guys who live in Maine must be rock hard all the damn time, and their partners or pets must be constantly sore and bow legged. Gods I love Maine and blueberries. *intentional choice of word.

    The Clippers make a lot of money playing in the Staples Centre due to a favourable lease. There's no way the new owner, whoever it happens to be, is going to turn their back on that. They might move to Anaheim if they can't renew that deal at Staples once it runs out (and no, arena contracts aren't cancelled because the team owner is a douchebag). Still, I don't see them leaving the Staples Centre if they can help it. Yeah, it'll always leave them in the Lakers' shadow but it makes more financial sense to stay there then go anywhere else.No, Mike. The Clippers make a lot of money playing in the Staples Center due to a favorable lease.

    I would imagine the Suns were from before every Phoenix suburb decided that they were totally a unique town whose boxy layout and miles of strip malls were so much different than the boxy layout and miles of strip malls in the next town over. Yes, I get regional differences, but by Metro Phoenix's "logic," we should have the Wisconsin Packers and Wisconsin Brewers so the other parts of the state don't feel alienated. No - the Suns already play in Phoenix. So it works. I agree. Arizona Suns would be as the hypothetical examples I just gave. I could see Tempe's beef with the name Phoenix Cardinals when the Cardinals played at Sun Devil Stadium... Tempe actually has an identity aside from being right next to Phoenix. But Glendale, Mesa, Scottsdale, etc. are just not that damned important.

    I think its quite clear that you "get" typical premier league kit design. Your choice of away and thirds tend to stay true to traditions which I like a lot. I have no fears when you get around to creating a concept for the team I support, Tottenham. Particular shout out to the Everton salmon pink kit. That was very hit and miss when they did it but the people who liked it, loved it.

    Many thanks everybody! Again - for those who are interested - here's the development of the logo... This was the picture of which I chose the pose of the head. Before - I had scrolled through many many bear pictures and did some pencil workout - getting to know the shapes of the bear's head. 1 - Pencil on paper - top: Rough sketch on paper of the intended pose; bottom: refining the sketch, defining lighting and shadowing 2 - Sketchbook light - top: resketching the lines with a tablet in sketchbook; bottom: bringing in the shapes and shadows 3 - Illustrator - top: using the pen tool to redraw the sketchbook sketch; bottom: fixing the the eyes 4 - Illustrator - top: implementing the wordmark; bottom: adding outline and implementing color. atbw Daniel

    I would say that's far from proven. Keep in mind I'm not saying move out of LA, just out of Staples and the Lakers immediate shadow. I guess you're arguing for a hypothetical that is virtually impossible. With acquisition and construction costs it's impossible to build another NBA quality venue in :LA proper and be economically viable.as no municipality nor would a team sink half a billion to set up shop right down the road from staples and also attempt to compete for other events against staples and a completely renovated forum. Lastly as I mentioned before both teams are tenants of aeg and they are both treated as such with maybe a slight nod to the Lakers due to aeg's minority stake. Staples is such a soulless and sterile venue it's perfect for hosting both teams. Once the lakers left the forum any hallowed ground or venue mystique disappeared. Trust me I've seen both play there and it does not matter one bit who is playing the venue is the epitome of neutrality. The only thing that makes a difference is if the crowd is into it and we know how fickle LA fans are.

    If there's ever an international expansion! As for the license plates, I do indeed have 'em for Los Altos! Seeing your thread inspired be to update the (rather primitive) plate designs I've drawn up. Here's a few that I have completed: What do you mean by your first post? And I'd be interested in seeing the mapping!

Nothing all too special here, just a primary logo made to look like a sail of a merchant ship or a faded document, depending on the way you see it, as well as gold pinstripes! ~ Daryl

    5 more uniforms/identities I miss in sports Mario-era Pittsburgh Penguins: One of the best looks in NHL history and always missed them when looking at the Pens now. 1997 Cleveland Indians: A modern classic w/ Chief Wahoo proudly displayed through the whole uniform (For better or worse is up to you). 1000x better than the current mess of a set. 1990's Orlando Magic: IMHO, the best looking uniform in NBA history. Pinstripes + Giant star + swagger = classic 1998 Atlanta Falcons: Always viewed them in black rather than red and the grey completes the set perfectly 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates: Oregon of the MLB with multiple uniform combos.

    The Clippers make a lot of money playing in the Staples Centre due to a favourable lease. There's no way the new owner, whoever it happens to be, is going to turn their back on that.

Still, I don't see them leaving the Staples Centre if they can help it. Yeah, it'll always leave them in the Lakers' shadow but it makes more financial sense to stay there then go anywhere else.Yeah, there is no way the new owner would back out of the Staples Center lease, unless they are flat out stupid. The Clippers just renewed their lease last year for another 10 years. And it would cost somewhere in the tens of millions to cancel it. Correct BUT I would say that although people that can afford an NBA team are aware of costs, they may not really be as married to costs as most people. They know the team is like a stock and they'll get the big windfall when they sell. So, an argument could be made that while the immediate financial success would be in staying at Staples, the long term success would be in forging their own identity away from the Lakers and increasing the overall value of the team that way. Just a thought. Well the new valuation models based on financials TV is the #1 factor. For that very reason you won't see the clippers move to the OC or anywhere out of the central LA metro. This is all about marketability and an LA centric team will attract some OC fans, the reverse is not necessarily equal where LA residents will be attracted to an OC branded/focused club. They could try the angels route but that's a bit silly. It would not be shocking to see a 3rd NBA team in OC or SD as they would still make money as OC is a big enough market to support it's own club and the $$$ is there. It's just not going to be the clippers because they don't want to give up the LA brand even if it's 2nd fiddle. So in 5 years time we could have the Ducks & Bucks both playing in the same building in Anaheim. Sounds like a dream scenario for hunting aficionados.

    If anything, I think the Clippers are a little too gimmicky as it is right now, with the weird polygonal side panels and proprietary numbers and so on. The Clippers uniforms from the '90s were nice: There's even something vaguely nautical about the red, white, and blue striping. Los Angeles on the roads would be ideal, of course.

    thanks for the ideas guys, keep em coming. The simplest way to describe it would be a combination of tabletop wargame meets arena football. A lot of details are changing all the time but at the moment there's the 18 teams (though i'm only testing with 2 teams) and a pool of players you can draft from. Currently the pool is about 100 players. Each play is carried out on the board by maneuvering each player around, to block, carry the ball, defend passes etc. A lot of the gameplay stuff is going through a bit of an overhaul so I can't really be anything but vague on it I'm afraid...lol The reason for picking arena football was scale. To do a full scale NFL style field at the size I wanted was going to be prohibitively big. The current board is still fairly large, but much more manageable. The other bonus was that each side only has 8 players on the board as opposed to 11 so turns will take less time. The plan is for it to be a self distributed print and play game.
