  2. Some tweaks and this is a pretty good option. -Kerning in "17" -two different "A"'s in All-Star -I understand the reasoning (balance) for the "R" being a flipped "A" but it just doesn't read right, make it more like a "R" -NBA logo, either make it bigger to eliminate the areas above an below it or make it a little smaller to add some breathing room. -Kerning in "New Orleans" -THe ends of the red shape that contain "New Orleans" end at a weird area, maybe take a look at that

  3. Only In The G*d D***ed NHL. Longtime posters will recognize it; the sentiment was so commonplace that the initials were often thrown out in general frustration with any stupid thing the league did.

  6. Pointless? Surely you jest. The 'RAMS' moniker embroidered on the left leg embodies Colorado State's spirit of leaping through the tough terrain of the Mountain West. It proves to opponents that Rams have a strong desire for conquest. The angle it sits on the thigh mimics the slope of the 4th-from-the-right dash on the university's seal. *I spent way too long looking up dumb things to come with for this... I don't know how these companies do it In all seriousness though, that thigh stripe is so dumb and ruins a lot of great looks for UA.

  10. I see people keep complaining that the World Cup is a "cash grab" and that the league is "just in it for the money". You all realize the NHL is a business right?

  11. If anything, the Bengals are the only team out of those three it looks good on. It looks out of place on the Saints and just awkward on the Rams.

  12. I've continued to tinker with my Brewers concept as something kept bugging me about it and I thought it merited a repost. I've shaded the blue to be a little richer and a little darker to better match what's worn on the field. The biggest change is that I've adjusted the numbers to better match the script with a more slender number with thicker outlining. I think this change has made all the difference and really adds the correct amount of contrast. Cheers!

  13. I'm not sure if this would work. The preseason of the NFL is more like game prep for regular season, while the NBA Summer League is a showcase of rookies, second years, and unsigned free agents.

  14. Black & purple can work, but only if the purple hits the happy medium of being bright enough without looking like lavender or hideous in general. Between the Raptors, Rockies, Ravens, & Kings, who have all used both colors within the last 20 years, the Raptors did it better with the Kings the next best. The problem with the Rockies & the Ravens is that the purple is too dark, making the two colors blend together (the Rockies are guiltier than the Ravens at doing this).

  17. i'll make the same comments i've made a million times on this topic, since this topic keeps coming up... maybe the san francisco giants should change their name to the san francisco californians or golden gators or bears, and let the mets be the giants... no? that's dumb? okay. change the colts to the indianans or drivers, so the ravens can be the colts? still no? and if the north stars were as beloved in minnesota from 1967-1993 as people claim, they'd probably still be there.... it's arguable that the stars are more a part of texas sports history than minnesota sports history at this point, too. 67-93 is 26 years. 93-16 is 23 years. factor in a stanley cup championship, the golden era of the franchise, and the synonymity of the franchise with the sport in this market, and that 3 year difference seems a little negligible. in texas, the stars brand IS hockey. the only game in town, and the only game there's even been. and its been that way for 23 years. for 26 years in minnesota, the stars played second or third fiddle to the gophers, high school, and people's personal rec-leagues... there's no doubt hockey itself is bigger in minnesota. always has been, and always will be. but the stars mean more to dallas than they ever did to minnesota, and people need to just accept that and live in the present. if minnesota cared so much about the stars identity, they should have put a fight in 1993 and tried to talk the league into forcing an identity change... but that didn't happen. the stars identity remained, and become a beloved part of the dallas sports scene. anyone thinking that should be stripped away for manufactured nostalgia's sake, or that it'd be okay for two kelly green teams to play in the same division with star-themed identities is delusional. [takes blood pressure pill and prepares to make the exact same rant in about 3 months.] go stars. but back on topic, i generally prefer teams to maintain their identity. as a titans fan, i'd rather be cheering for the tennessee oilers. obviously some names just don't work at all, like the dallas texans moving to kansas city... but i think it's disingenuous to pretend relocated teams don't have histories in other towns. no one is saying teams like baltimore no longer have any history with the colts, or that minnesota isn't allowed to celebrate the north stars any more... it's just that multiple cities now have ties to that franchise, and that's okay.

  18. I mentioned in my Bill Simmons thread that we could benefit from a sport media thread. Well here it is! This is where you discuss sports media, link to Awful Announcing stories, post Gus Johnson clips, and more. I've been looking for a place to discuss Gawker vs. Hogan, and this is good as any. After too many days' silence, Gawker finally spoke up: http://gawker.com/the-hogan-verdict-1766460791 If Hulk Hogan's penis is the hill they wanted to die on, they deserve what they can get. This is the exceptionally bad opinion from Nick Denton's post: "If only you hadn't read what we posted, we wouldn't be in this mess!" No one wanted to see Hulk Hogan have sex, and Heather Cole definitely didn't want the world to see her have sex. That Hogan is a public figure or that he said embarrassing racist things is irrelevant; there's no public right to know about the sex lives of others.

  21. Kings- Very sharp set, even though I'm not the hugest fan of the logo used. Ducks- Wow..... that's actually a very effective set. I'm speechless. Yotes- This is what they should be wearing. Either Hunter Green or Purple should be used by the Yotes... the only change I'd make is to bring back the Moon Patch (The patch itself had many incarnations, and it's a very nice logo.) Calgary- The socks bugged me at 1st, but everything else is perfect. The White C logo is what should be used by the team. Edmonton- Nice & Clean. I will admit the shoulders feel bare though. Either the Rig Worker logo or a variation of the shoulder patch used on the Navy & Grey alts would work great here. Also, did you try using Orange & Copper together? Sharks- I like the striping used and the shoulder patch, but the tweaks made to the primary don't work for me. Also, I'd love to see the "SJ" logo used somewhere.

  24. This logo need a lot to be fixed before it can be considered even decent. You have the sketch, now you need to create the masterpiece. 1. It's very sloppy. There are inconsistent line lengths everywhere. Make sure each outline is the same length on both sides and going vertically. Your going for a symmetrical look, so make the laces equal on both sides. It's leaning over. There are stray pixels sticking out and even some at the bottom uncolored. The letters aren't centered. If your using paint, centering letters can be hard, but at least make them closer to being symmetrical. 2. It's generic. Everyone uses red and blue, so use another color scheme. Individualize it. 3. I agree with @ZionEagle that this looks pixel-ly. I'm not an expert on computer designing, but I'd take her advice use Inskcape since I can't think of an alternative (other than Adobe which is expensive). I'm being harsh, but I think a rough logo deserves more honest and harsh critiques to make it better. I hope you accomplish in making this logo better.

  29. @HRC4Thanks for pointing that out, I do understand what you're saying. I thought it might have been fine, but I wasn't sure so it's great to get a second opinion I'm waiting till the end of the series to make adjustments, but I will keep that in mind. @Weapon XI'm so glad that was helpful to you. If you have any issues, or want me to make the files for you just shoot me a PM. @SteelmanI appreciate the kind words! Glad to know others are getting the nostalgia feels around here I personally play 07 all the time, just started a new franchise mode yesterday. Too bad I can't figure out where the team coding for that is. If I could find it I would totally try to put created teams in the franchise mode. Yeah, I know about the abbreviations deal, but I couldn't figure out certain abbreviations, so I just didn't bother. Besides, I figured my team names might be more interesting. Huh, I never knew about that broadcast thing. New thing to try! I think I'll go ahead and finish the fourth set and post it soon. Thanks for the feedback and interest guys!

  31. Tennessee's flag is actually kinda bad. The stars in the circle aren't placed symmetrically and the random white and blue stripes on the right edge of it look awkward (plus it doesn't even have any meaning to it; it was just a mere "design consideration").

  33. Up next are the Riga Griffins. They get their name from the main animal from the Latvian coat of arms. The Griffins feature the best in Latvian hockey talent in goaltender Arturs Irbe and young defenseman Sandis Ozolinsh. Scoring will probably be led by Valeri Kamensky.

I snatched the beautiful "leather" A&M alternate helmet from a few years ago. It's rough, but this is the kind of vibe they need to run with. Not making the Huskers look like Dynamo from Running Man.

  41. Regardless of whether a team changed nicknames or not, the franchise is a continuous entity. In American soccer it gets a little fuzzy, as teams have outlasted leagues. So the current New York Cosmos, Tampa Bay Rowdies, Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, and Seattle Sounders all claim connections to former teams by those names in the old NASL. Likewise, the San Diego Sockers, Baltimore Blast, and Kansas City / Missouri Comets all have been in mulitple indoor leagues. But in Major League baseball, the leagues have continuous existences; so it is perfectly clear to which franchise lineage belong the Orioles, as well as the Twins and the Rangers. Let's note here that there were two other teams in Major League history called "Baltimore Orioles": the National League team that dominated in the 1890s before folding in 1899, and the American League team that played in 1901 and 1902 (that league's first two years) before moving to New York to become the Highlanders. The name "Baltimore Orioles" then was used by the American Association team for most of the period before the St. Louis Browns moved there and took it up. But the current Orioles team properly makes no claim to connection with either of the two previous Orioles teams in the Majors, and acknowledges its status as being part of the Browns' franchise. The fact that the Browns and the two Senators teams changed nicknames upon their moves, while the Dodgers, Giants, Braves, and A's did not, is just a side issue. The Senators teams changed nicknames only because that name is appropriate for Washington alone. If those Washington teams had been called "Bears" or "Eagles" or anything generic instead of "Senators", then the name would almost certainly not have been dropped. The Browns adopted the name of Baltimore's longstanding minor league team (and, as mentioned, its two former Major League teams). To claim that the nature of the Dodgers' and Giants' moves would have been different if the owners had decided to choose another nickname (let's say if those teams had decided to follow the Orioles' lead and take the names of the minor league teams the Hollywood Stars and the San Francisco Seals) is really not a sensible position. The franchise model is simply the objective history of how things happened.

  45. modern-era baseball relocations: Boston Braves --> Milwaukee Braves St. Louis Browns --> Baltimore Orioles Philadelphia Athletics --> Kansas City Athletics Brooklyn Dodgers --> Los Angeles Dodgers New York Giants --> San Francisco Giants Washington Senators --> Minnesota Twins Milwaukee Braves --> Atlanta Braves Kansas City Athletics --> Oakland Athletics Seattle Pilots --> Milwaukee Brewers Washington Senators II --> Texas Rangers Montreal Expos --> Washington Nationals First of all, 11 relocations in over a century is pretty stable. It's 6 to 5 in favor of keeping, so indeed as close as you're gonna get to 50/50, but of the five renamed teams, only two were charter teams, and "Senators" is a tough nickname to make portable, even in a world with Los Angeles Lakers. The Pilots only played one season, so that was an easy mulligan to take.
