    New? Oh, they've been the undisputed champs in that department since '99, son.

    I feel like I've improved quite a bit over the course of this series. As a result, some of my earlier logos look pretty poor compared to some new ones. So I'm going back and updating a few identities. I'm not sure how many I'll get to, but here's the first one. For reference, here's the progression the logo has gone through since I first attempted it a year ago. C&C appreciated! If you have a suggestion for a team that needs work, feel free!

    Look on the bright side. At least they didn't send you a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey*. *And if you young in's don't get the joke google "The Hockey Sweater" (1980).

    They're hiding it in their team's space aged dressing room no one wants to enter. Space aged from 1949.

    I'm always of the mindset of "If you're going to be bad, be really bad and/or really entertaining". And going 0-for the season does fall into that. But it's just sad. We knew they didn't have much of a chance entering the season. They've used six QB's this season...you don't even have that many QB's in camp. This is the team that's basically closest to the capital of football. One of the legacy franchises in American football history. To see them reduced to a punchline for the last 20 years is painful. I mean, it's funny to see that woman's Browns jersey with all those QB's names on it, but I can't imagine just seeing my team whiff and whiff and whiff on finding that long-term answer at quarterback. They've tried drafting the QB's that were awesome in college, including a Heisman Trophy winner. They've gone the free agent route, including a couple QB's that played in, or even won, the Super Bowl. They've gone after the traditional QB's, the athletic and mobile QB's...you name it, the Browns have tried it. And they've been wrong answers each time. They've had to have cycled through 20+ QB's since they came back in 1999. One playoff appearance, two winning seasons, am I right? It's hard to do something 20+ times and not have at least one attempt be successful. I feel for them and their fans. It's just so hard to explain. The Colts had one bad season in 20 years, and they happen into Andrew Luck. The Packers took Aaron Rodgers after he fell hard in the first round. The Patriots lucked into an all-timer with Brady. The Saints got lucky in that Brees failed a physical in Miami. The Cardinals were able to talk Carson Palmer to keep playing. Hell, the Cowboys caught fire with Dak Prescott. The Redskins drafted two QB's in one draft...and have had success with both. We've seen other Heisman QB's do well in recent times. But the Browns, for whatever reasons, just haven't found that luck. Does anyone remember the Cleveland Cavs back in the early 80's? The team was so bad, their front office was just so inept....the NBA gave them extra picks just to get their crap together. At this point, I wouldn't care if the NFL gave the Browns some free supplemental draft picks so they quit becoming a joke. The Falcons gave the Browns five picks in order to draft Julio Jones. If I remember correctly, not only are those five drafted players no longer with the Browns...they aren't in the league at all.

    If it's ok, I would like to change the Dallas Droids colors to Black, Silver, White, and Blue. I've made some word marks for the team, based off r2d2's "eye?" I used a very slightly modified version of the font, bionic-kid

    I don't know how unpopular this is (the second Raptors logo might be more unpopular), but this is the worst Raptors logo. If you took away the wording, the first thing I would have told you this logo was for would be Predators or something more generic; there is no coorelation to a Raptor. They completely eliminated the Raptor from their branding. Both other primaries, even the purple one, were better than this. At least you could tell they were for a team called the Raptors. This logo is another uncreative logo with a basketball. If you wanted to do something with a basketball, use this: This is a better logo. You bring back purple yet still have red, black, and grey. It has an actual raptor as well. Refine the outline a little, especially on the head, and you got yourself a winner. --------------------------- This: is better than this: The first one shows refinement. It looks like an actual Florida Panther. Both have flaws, but the first one flows better, too. The giant paws in the latter make it seem like the panther is jumping at you, but in the end distort the logo. The worst thing about the second logo are the legs, feet, and tail. The tail swoops in front of the legs (or appears to) and the paws look like little stubs facing off to the left. Maybe he isn't jumping but rather tripping...? Neither logo is perfect; the first one has a weird cut-in in the back of the neck. But this design is all over, making the logo flow better. Florida made a good call with the first one as the primary.

    Re: Atlanta Hawks' new D-League Team http://news.sportslogos.net/2016/11/10/atlanta-hawks-will-have-local-nba-d-league-team/ Personally, I think Thrashers would be great. It's too good a name to not use again. Has local meaning being the state bird and there's a lot of 'thrashing' going on in the paint of a ball game.

    I'm no fan of Trump, but that logo is infinitely better than any of his campaign graphics. A little too much open space below the White House, but that's not a significant hindrance. Not that it'll be used in these formats, but it would look great as a lapel pin or a plaque. I still love the simplicity and beauty of Obama's "Office of the President-Elect" logo (which was the first time the President-elect ever used special graphics, I believe). Gorgeous font, and the rendering of the coat of arms is beautiful:

Bernie Federko unveiled the Alumni Jersey in the pre-game broadcast. It's beautiful!

    In defense of the practice, if is a ONE DAY thing. The Royals went full year because it had been so long, gold's in their color scheme, and quite frankly out of the last three champions they had the least iconic and sacred uniform. I don't expect the Cubs to wear gold around their logos on their home uniform the whole year. Also, the comment on the blue at home for Opening Day was a joke, although considering they won in those uniforms, the more I think of it the more I wouldn't put it 100% out of the realm of possibility.

    I know it's not a popular opinion around here... but I actually agree with this sentiment. Block's aren't bad, but I like some of the more unique fonts out there. The Lions' number font looks great imo:

    Trying to make the guy look bad since he doesn't like an ugly name that happens to be used by some vets... It's not like he said actual soldiers are horrible. We all know Foley has a boner for everything army related but this is still only hockey, people can hate a stupid army related name without actually hating army, the vets or any of this... By the way, this name is effectively sounding as minor league as possible.

    Wizards are wearing their new "patriotic" alts tonight, I believe for the first time. They look pretty good. They are gaudy on the side panels but very clean and simple on the front and back. It works well as a whole. Interesting without being overbearing.

    Would it look a lot better with a block font? For sure. My thing is that it fits with the whole great ideas ruined thing. Like how the sleeve stripes have been ruined and the like

    UCF, we're branches! Not divisions!!!! ? Still a nice attempt to recognize the Armed Forces though a logo on the back, similar to how the NFL does it looks better. That Maryland uniform is horrible. Hopefully we beat them so bad it ends up in a bonfire like the original Denver Broncos socks.

    I can't really comment on the track layouts themselves as oval racing is a pretty foreign concept to me - not being from North America and all that. But everything else you have considered, such as commentary booths, parking, lighting, seating etc, makes for some interesting concepts to read through and view. As usual they are very well presented - even by your high standards.

    My dad's an eye surgeon. And I talk about sports regularly with him. He said "won't that be an issue for colour blind people?" when I first told him about the Jets and Bills going green vs red. It's almost like it was a bad idea to start with!

    There was no reason to taper the hem stripe on that Blues uniform, it just looks goofy. Its a good looking uniform but the Blues current set is perfect and nowhere near the visual atrocity that was the Penguins former set.

    You're right that they should have stayed with that logo. Or, even better, they should have gone back to their truly classic logo, which had been unchanged for so long. This brand deserves to be represented by a logo that evokes a newspaper masthead. Even if they no longer publish a physical newspapers, the strength of the brand lies in carrying that imagery forward. And that Old English-style Sporting News mark is as identifiable as the Old English wordmark of the New York Times. The new "SN" logo is clever; but it strikes a note totally discordant to the brand's feel. For an app icon, the Sporting News could have just used the S from the classic wordmark, just as the Times uses the T from its wordmark.

    ABSOLUTELY! when I was a kid buying replicas during that time...you had 2 materials to choose from: "Replica" that was a polyester material similar to soccer jersey. It wasn't as "thick" as what they wore on the ice. These were the cheaper option and ran $50-$70 (in 1990's money). As I remember, they fit more like a long-sleeved t-shirt. "Pro" that was a material very similar to what they wore on the ice. Thicker material than the replica. These had a much more athletic cut and fit more like a proper jersey. They ran $70-$90. No matter which one you purchased, though, they had all the patches, bells, and whistles that the team wore on the ice.

    WINNIPEG JETS Since the Jets are a team that has has no franchise history under the Jets name, I decided to de-Edge-ify their current look. One of Reebok's signature design elements was the removing of some hem stripes. so I put a simple white-blue-white pattern that's doubled in a way on the sleeves. For a cleaner look, I removed the silver outline of the logo and straightened out the numbers. The space between the arm stripes is removed. For continuity between the two jerseys, the pattern is the same, only with some added navy on the away. Thanks for all the comments you've given throughout this series, C&C was very much appreciated. I'll be dishing out updates, however, in the coming days.
