    Aren't the Browns technically named in honor of an old NFL team that used to play in Cleveland and was named for Paul Brown?

    Browns season ticket holder here. I like the Brown facemask. I wasn't ever thrilled with the gray cage, but wasn't really against it, either. As for what's been said about the uniforms/logos. I wanted a logo. But, I wanted the uniforms mostly to be left alone. Color shading didn't matter to me. In fact, I felt the Browns had too much of a creamsicle look, especially when they wore the orange pants or the orange jersey (thank god those two didn't exist in the same season). Issue with the brown pants was, as mentioned, the lack of a stripe equal to the white or orange pants. But, back to the logo. I wanted something for merchandise. I wanted a team logo that could be placed about the stadium, on publications, etc that would, if not immediately, would become our 'identity' when off the field, but the iconic orange logo-less helmet would be our identity on it. Sadly, the team failed to learn. They seemed to go in the complete opposite direction, and it appears because they a) didn't ask the right questions, and made assumptions based on those questions' answers. Namely, fans didn't want a logo on the helmet and were defiant about it. I agree. I do not want a logo on the helmet. We've gone since 1946 without a logo on the helmet, why start now? However, they seemed to make the assumption that not wanting a helmet logo meant not wanting a logo. Which was idiotic at best, or 'That's the Browns" at worst. Problem is, I don't think they asked these 'focus groups' what they wanted with regard to a logo. Or whether they were happy with the helmet logo. In fact, I'm faily confident that they gave fans the option: get a helmet logo and merchandise logo, or maintain the status quo. This reminds me of the College Football Playoff. The fact that nobody could agree on a 4, 6, 8, 12, 16 team playoffs, neutral site/bowl games/home field, December, January, etc schedule that somehow the status quo was what the majority wanted. Without realizing that the majority would take any form of a playoff over the BCS. I have two shirts my fiancee has purchased for me. Both are simple wordmark shirts that read "CLEVELAND BROWNS" in two rows. That's it. The one has a very tine helmet under BROWNS about the size of a quarter. I'm not interested in wearing a giant orange helmet anymore. Mostly because they had other options that would work for merchandise. The football B, the dawghead logo, the elf, anything. I bought them and wore those. Or the jersey itself. But, it just seemed idiotic that today, in 2015, we're using, essentially, the logo that Art Modell pioneered. He hated the Elf, I say bring him back. The best the Browns ever did was with the Elf. The most heartbreaking times in our existence (3 AFC championship losses, two playoff losses to Pittsburgh, losing our team for THREE years, etc) all happened when we just had a helmet as our logo. I think that about sums it up.

    The Cleveland Browns were not named after a color, but after Paul Brown. There is no need for their helmet to be brown. Also, yes, we know poop is brown. The joke has been made thousands of times before. Thank you.

    Recently, concept helmets made by people across the nation have gained lots of attention on social media and sports sites including ESPN. I personally believed the helmets were sloppy and lacked true effort into designing a helmet that would fit the NFL's strict traditions. I made an effort to modernize NFL teams helmets, without ignoring each teams traditions. Please enjoy and let me know your thoughts! AFC WEST: Raiders - Chargers - Chiefs - Broncos -

    Alright so instead of uploading a bunch of teams at the same time, I'm going to upload 2-3 teams every few days to keep active and hopefully get more feed back so here is two more ACC Coastal teams Georgia Tech So Russell is there current manufacturer and G Tech will most likely switch in the next few years, and Under Armour is probably the most obvious one to go after them since they already have an apparel license with them. Miami So since Miami is now leaving Nike and switching to Adidas I kept them to what they already stick with except for the Henley unis which I could see Adidas supplying them with next year. There will be more once I get a bit more feedback on these and other unis.......Okay ill have some more up maybe tomorrow but I would like more feedback.

    The truth comes out - The Blue Jackets opted not to insure Nathan Horton's contract when they first signed him because his shoulder injury included a 30 game deductible, which means the back injury that will probably keep him from ever playing again would require that the team pays him for the remainder of his contract, which was like 6 more years. Holy damnit that seems stupid. So it was either pay a guy 25 million dollars to watch the team on TV or pay a guy a similar amount to actually play. The leafs made the trade to get rid of Clarkson's cap hit. They still have to pay Horton, but it doesn't count against the cap. This franchise is :censored:ing cursed and dumb. Really really dumb and really cursed.

    the arm sleeves left blank really got me. you have a nice start here but there needs to be consistancy through out. For example puting a gold line between the orange and the white. also having the bottom stripes on the arms. it just makes every thing more even.

    Also, I think I pretty much called "weaving in and out of the wild cards but finishing just outside" for the Panthers at the beginning of the year. If I had predicted that Kane would catch a rut and break his collarbone while Patrick Sharp starts a body count, I'd be spending some of my newfound millions to turn this place into Chris Creamer and The Admiral's Sports Logos And Spice Gumdrops Community.

    No. Thats right Gothamite this is the original Browns for sure! Quietly waiting for IceCap to start commenting..... They're only the original Browns if you closed your eyes and put your hands over your ears going "lalala I can't hear you" between 1996 and 1999 The NFL disgraced itself when it "transferred the history" (as though such a thing were possible in the world of reality) of the Browns/Ravens franchise to the expansion Browns. The appalling dishonesty of the whole matter continues to disgust. Yeah. I have the same reaction when people talk about the OKC Thunder "transferring" the Sonics' history back to Seattle should they get another team. As if history were something you can just pack up and give someone. Anyway the Browns. I'm REALLY liking the new orange the more I see it. I'm also hating the brown facemask. I would still prefer grey, but I'm not sure if it would work with the new orange. White may have been the way to go. The brown just sticks out and competes with the orange shell for your attention.

    Ahh... I would appreciate any help on team names. Uppsala has the Slott, the Cathedral and the Kings Mounds. So I incorporated Norse Mythology. Tors Hammer. I am open to better choices for team names in Sweden. Fotbol clubs are AIK, BK Häcken, Malmö FF, so help with naming would be appreciated. Malmö is a port city. I looked at Kraken? Jag har tillbringat sex månader bor i Uppsala, men min bakgrund på svenska idrotten cykling och kusiner i Allsvenskan, Mens och Womens. Jag skulle uppskatta hjälp med bättre namn ... sjömän är inte satt i sten.I like Malmö Sailor(Sjöman) but I know many teams from Skåne uses birds like Malmö Redhawks uses a Redhawk and Rögle BK uses a Griffin like bird on there logo and Skåne Kommun uses a griffin on their weapon. But I think Sjömän will work for Malmö but if you had plans for a team i Karlskrona it would work even better If you want some inspiration for future teams check this out http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kommunvapen_i_Sverige There you have some ideas for teams like: Karskrona Anchors, Visby Rams, Södertälje Saints, Örebro Eagles etc

    I wasn't making a point, I was making a joke. Just thought it was funny that a fan of team A would say "team B will wear anything" and then post a pic of team B wearing a color team A has already worn. Guess it didn't come across that way. I don't take any more offense to Baylor wearing grey than I did when TCU wore it. It isn't a school color, and looks like garbage, so why wear it?

    I'm an equipment manager. Granted, I don't work in the NFL, but I have worked with college football. First off, most helmets DO make it the entire season without cracking. Cracks do happen, but not very often. If I had to guess, the most number of cracks I've seen during a season is around 5, and that's for the whole team. Riddell stopped making new VSR-4s a few years ago. That is the truth. Everyone at Riddell I've talked to will tell you the same thing. The reason that Tom Brady or Jared Allen or anyone else can wear one of those is because the team has extra shells on hand. When they run out of shells, those helmets are gone. They can't get new ones. Riddell would much rather a team purchase a new Speed Flex than a bunch of old shells for a helmet that rates at the bottom of those Va Tech safety studies. Your assertion that the equipment manager is lying (or part of some conspiracy) is ridiculous.

    Thank you! Surprisingly, nobody said that about Royal Princeton SC (the first concept of this series), who has 12 championships. Glad you like Henderson, though! Thank you! And I surely like incorporating y'all's suggestions into my concepts! Thank you! And as I said above, I'm surprised at how nobody's said that about Princeton. Haha... The marker surely does show the design better, thanks for your suggestion in that matter! Those colors surely look great together, don't they? Glad you liked Henderson! Glad you liked Henderson! Surely was a fun one for me to make, indeed! --------------------------------------------------------------- League I Windport SC Windport City, Monquin Founded: 1967 Last Promoted: 2013 Championships: 0 Windport City (founded by the Spanish as Puerto Viento, "Wind Port") is notable for setting the lead in the nation for the movement towards clean and renewable energy, which has become dramatically widespread throughout Los Altos. Furthermore, the Alton Space Program is based in the outskirts of the Windport City area. The crest combines these two identities into a single image, with a wind turbine taking prominence in the center of the crest, which itself is shaped like a rocket ship. The stripes on the crest represent wind (it is Windport City, after all) and the 13 stripes represent that Monquin is the 13th state in the nation. The home kit emphasized wind and the blue sky and a "W" pattern is sublimated into the design, splitting at the left edge of the jersey. While the home jersey emphasizes renewable energy, the clash jersey represents the city's space culture, with the gray and black stripes representing the night sky and the yellow representing the stars. The kits are supplied by Puma (I can never draw the puma in the logo right) and the sponsor is Tesla Motors, which has a large industrial presence in the Windport Area. Enjoy! ~ Daryl

    Exactly. The Galaxy should be able to wear their whites everywhere, except when they go to a place like Vancouver. Then and only then, change kit. But I do like stepping outside the regular color scheme just a little for that change kit. Especially when you can make it traditional, like Arsenal's blue and gold.

    I sincerely hope not. I'm of the mind that a Rhode Island Red-based identity package should be reserved for an ice hockey team in the state. Preferably, a rebranded Providence Bruins AHL franchise. Ice hockey is the sport that the Reds name - and, by extension, Rhode Island Red imagery - has been most identified with over the years. That tradition should be preserved.

    The new orange is dark enough to stand out on a white jersey, especially if trimmed in brown. I wonder if that's one of the "bold" uniform changes.

    I think a certain Charlie O. would like to speak to you from the grave. At least there's only one hat/pair of socks! Also I'm pretty sure one of those yellow unis were only practice unis. But you could say they're the grandfather. From the beginning of that set in 1972, the A's used the yellow and green pants very very infrequently. (Though Vida Blue did make one high-profile appearance wearing yellow-over-yellow in the 1975 All-Star Game.) Like the Indians, Orioles, and Phillies, the A's abandoned their dark pants after only a few outings; the team eventually used only the white pants, and so wound up with three uniforms. The A's never even experimented with green-over-yellow or yellow-over-green, which would have been the equivalent of the the Pirates' unsightly black-over-yellow and yellow-over-black combinations. Unlike the embarassing garb sported by the Pirates, the A's uniforms actually looked sharp and dignified. I'd say that the A's were the only team wearing pullover and/or beltless uniforms who ever looked really beautiful . Blah blah blah

    yea the asymmetrical design choices were made to reflect their unconventional offensive philosophy. Nike's whole line of Pro Combats in 2010 were based on the same kind of thing; there was a lot of thought put into those designs. ever since then, schools have just copied whatever they liked best and turned them into terrible trends
