    Knowing them the song will be "Viva Las Vegas" with the "Las" dubbed out. ... Who am I kidding? They'll just use the Army fight song.

    This is how the jerseys SHOULD LOOK! Not stupid ad, just the NBA logo in the front!

    Why do people hate pretty much every new league that starts, regardless of what it is or what it's being created for? I remember back when I was a lower-case g, we had the Roller Hockey International (or World Hockey League, I forget) and it was silly and bad, but there was pretty much nothing else to watch so people (including me) kinda got into it. Not sure how too much content (i.e. choices) is a bad thing.

    Fun read. For example, are there more bears (animals) in the world or more Chicago Bears fans? More lions or Lions fans?

    The major difference is that sleuthpanther did all the recruiting beforehand. Other threads of a similar nature have been based on a singular design, then requested help for the other "x" amount of teams to complete the league. The whole purpose of the concepts forum is to showcase artwork, not post one thing and have everyone else finishing it. Collaborations can be done here, just do the legwork behind the scenes.

    Alright, kind of surprising that it has already been a couple days since I posted the Marlins, but here are the Brewers! Logos -Going back to the classic, beloved scheme, with a darker, more brewery type gold, as I recommended in @Victormrey's wonderful series.This way the classic feel is kept intact, with a subtle twist to keep it modern. -The away is a sort of dulled powder blue, kind of like what you saw from the White Sox in the 60's. All of the white elements in the set are actually cream, being that Milwaukee is the Cream City. Uniforms -The wheat/barley type pattern returns from my tweaks series, and is added onto the brims of the caps, deriving from their predecessor Pilots' caps. -The gold jersey sees a gold front-panel cap paired with it, though obviously that cap can go with the other jerseys as well. -The number font from my tweaks series is kept to maintain the brewery type feel to the set. I'd love to hear what you guys think!

    I disagree entirely how can a uniform that's only design element was 4 skinny horizontal lines on the shorts be considered sweet. But a uniform that uses the bandana pattern that is used in their football uniforms, something completely unique to the university be considered a step backwards.

    Sporting KC needs to wear something similar to this and I'm not talking just for warmups. I loved the Wiz/Wizards identity.

    I'm a traditionalist and not a fan of pullovers and elastic waistbands, but those are gorgeous. It looks like they may have done a good job of not wearing them too baggy and not having the neck of the jersey hanging way too low. That being said, some of those players need some lessons in pants length from that era. I don't think any players wore their pants that high in those days. The J.R. Richard photo below is representative of the era.. And the pajamas shouldn't be permitted at all when throwing back. Surely a player can stand to look good for an occasional game now and then.

    The Tampa Bay Lightning have never had a good logo. The current is the closest to being "good", but none of them have been good at all.

    Thanks! I'll have you know that giving the Yankees a navy alt is one of those few lines I won't cross, alongside having the Giants in royal blue and the like. Wait until part two! Also, if you are posting in my threads, please use proper punctuation. It's just good conduct. Thank you. Spoilers, but that's pretty much going to be my primary color scheme/hierarchy for Minnesota. Navy, white, then red (because of the "frosty" feeling it gives off). Now, onto Tampa Bay! TAMPA BAY STINGRAYS - A stinging touch of green Now that you've had your ASMR fix, let's let our good buddy @FinsUp1214 describe my problems with the Rays' identity: I'll add to it that while the "sun ray" idea has grown on me a little bit (in part due to the Padres ripoff fauxbacks), there are still many things I don't like about it. The font looks bland, they don't have a "Tampa Bay" wordmark, they still have the old ray on their sleeve (despite phasing it out of the rest of their brand - what @hockey week called the "'just kidding' ripcord of branding"), they still use ****ing nameplates (along with the Indians), and all of their uniforms are literal palette swaps (thanks, @Silent Wind of Doom). Back in ye olden days of 2013, I had the idea to rename the team "Stingrays." The resulting concept is one of the trashiest things I have ever put up on here (a shoddily modified version of the Judas Priest font, a poor take on double green, and the visual issue of renaming the team "Stingrays" alongside the image of a Devil Ray). Cardinals superfan/jabroni McCall rightfully called me out on it (a rare occurrence for him), and I managed to refine the current set to a solid point. However, I still found myself liking the name "Stingrays." It was unambiguous (unlike "Rays"), sounded appropriate for a sports team (despite stingrays having the nickname "Puppies of the Sea," and had only two syllables! With the colors, I knew I had to bring back the dark green and light blue (Deep Green and Columbia Blue). I tweaked the shades (a lighter dark green with more blue and carrying over the light blue from my Pilots concept) and added lime green (just Lime Green) as a small accent. I thought that the lime green worked well as an accent for the Emerald Green/Light Blue Daytona Tortugas, so I added it to the Stingrays. Now, Tampa can have a look to call its own and finally leave the navy hegemony. Using this photo from Monterey Bay Aquarium's website, I managed to draw a Southern Stingray (which live in the area around Tampa Bay) that carried over the old ray's stylistic points while representing the flowing lines of Dasyatis americana. The font is a modified version of Seren Script by Type Faith Fonts, which I liked as a modern, flowing script style (to fit with the Stingrays' age and the smooth aesthetic of the identity). The uniforms are classic, but with some modern twists. The scripts feature small teal highlights in their short tails and the sleeves feature curved stripes - to accentuate the curves found throughout the identity. These styling points are a way to do modern stuff without straying too far from the traditional visual language of the sport (i.e. the original Carolina Hurricanes' warning flag stripes, the Milwaukee Bucks' Irish Rainbow, the Bengals' 1981 redesign, etc.). A "Tampa Bay" script returns to the road uniform. The number/NOB font is the former font of the Pittsburgh Penguins, as it is still a good modern block font. NOB's are direct-sewn, so no more nameplate gunk! The sock stripes come from the 1933-50 St. Louis Cardinals' sock stripes - a pattern too attractive not to use somewhere in the majors. The alternates are both standard and unorthodox. The light blue alt comes with a blue-billed cap, so as not to infringe too much on the Pilots' identity. The green alternate is something I've wanted to do for a while - a simplified and unified take on the Rays' inaugural set. Featuring the "TB" as a crest and the "Stingrays" wordmark on the sleeve, this uniform uses a two-color gradient of light blue and lime green (simpler than the old one - Colorwerx notes four shades). The cap is tribute to the (rarely-worn) alternate cap from 1998-2000, The sock stripes also receive an overhaul, to match the gradients in a knitting-friendly way. The NOB has no gradient, because of legibility reasons. The second set of alternates pairs the light blue jersey's cap with the home uniform. The other alternate is a fauxback to the 1961 Tampa Tarpons because I like the idea of fauxbacks to teams that have some regional connection. A classic-cut vest bears powder pinstripes and a cartoon image of a smiling Southern Stingray (based on this photo from Pinterest) holding a bat in his tail. It tributes the long history of baseball in the region, while not ripping off another team! I'd like to think that the Stingrays have come a long way since 2013. Instead of me being all "edgy" and lazy with the design, I've done my research, found an eye-pleasing color scheme, and made a modern (yet still using traditional visual language) identity for Tampa Bay that could look in the Trop or in a retractable roof stadium. C+C is greatly appreciated, as always! Up next, my take on the "Ray of Light" and double blue + yellow! P.S. the number model for this one is #18, for 2016 World Series MVP/Joe Maddon's BFF Ben Zobrist. Also, this is my first concept with green (my favorite color) since I switched avatars to my favorite green senshi from Super Sentai - Hayate from Seijuu Sentai Gingaman!

    Back with a brand new series! One of my absolute favorite periods in baseball uniform history was the period immediately at the beginning of the double-knit era. Starting with the Pirates in 1970, Major League teams switched from flannels to brand new polyester double-ply technology. Team didn't quite know exactly what to do with the new fabric. The result was a series of gorgeous, modern, colorful but clean uniform styles like the '70s Red Sox, orange-centric shooting star Astros, Swingin' A's, and feathered Braves. Things got a little crazy in the late '70s and early '80s and conservative button downs reasserted their presence. But what if it hadn't gone that way? What if the pullover and sansabelt look had stuck? The uniforms would have been modernized (I doubt we'd see the '83 Sox in the current era) but maybe instead of harking back to the flannel era, maybe baseball goes back to the early double-knits. So this series is based on that alternative history. These are contemporary uniforms but designed with the idea that the pullover era never ended but just evolved along the same lines that uniforms took to this day. We start with the champs. I've used the same revised logos that I used for my original MLB series but adapted them into the early 70's pullover look (minus the blue sleeve caps). I've added white stripes to the stirrups to better match the cap. Powder blue and white dominate the roads and I'm throwing in a blue alt for fun. Enjoy!

    That's a really good question. Threatened by change, I guess. The XFL was the best example of this. Everyone killed it, and I never really got why. Yes, it was goofy and McMahon is a buffon, but it also had some interesting ideas -- several of which have been incorporated into other pro sports. People hated the UFL too (that's gone, right?). More options for entertainment and more options for guys playing the sports seems the best outcome for everyone.

    Next up are the Norfolk Tides. Recolored to more closely match their parent club Nationals, the team includes an all-gold alternate at home and a blue gradient road alternate. The team also includes the identity of the Norfolk Hams.

    Maybe something like this? It allows for the alternate to be kept, but makes the yellow a little less overbearing. Milwaukee should be posted in a little bit.

    Also, the throwback they're actually wearing isn't even accurate. On the road jerseys worn during that era, the "HOUSTON" text was thinner and more condensed, positioned a bit lower and overlapped the star.

    Today we have the Brewers from Milwaukee's other major sports team, Marquette Basketball. I love the alternating stripes in Marquette's recent uniforms and the numbers on top of the script in the current set. For a script, I've taken the Brewers original script (taken from the Pilots) and straightened it out. The "M" logo is an attempt to redo the classic logo from the Braves into more modern script.

    My next concept comes from Canada with the Calgary Cannons. Bringing the club back from the history books, the team is the top affiliate of the Mariners. The team's red and brass colors return, but the old blue is replaced with purple to help differentiate them from the Blue Jays, Expos, and Alberta Wild. The cap logo is a maple leaf with a baseball being fired through the middle and is also found on the team's purple uniform. The team receives the occasional identity of the Calgary Poutine to fit every other AAA team.

    Ok this may be a crazy idea but inspired by the author of the Haitian declaration of Independence, who declared that after two cups of coffee and three shots of rum the words came naturally, I have my Reds alt. One year the Reds road uniforms had nearly cutoff sleeves. It was a strange look but a distinctive one, so why not bring it back? I've used the REDS word mark to give it clean look and shoulder numbers.

    This is really growing on me. It's nice and clean and the absence of blue on the striping makes the logo stand out. The home is still the better of the two but that's the case for most teams anyways. All in all, Colorado is the big winner of this uniform shakeup. Even the collar is executed nicely on this set.

    Eh, I still like the (devil) sting ray a whole lot better. It's always been a better logo to me and provided for a better identity altogether. Besides that, the sun ray logo itself has always looked really unbalanced and awkward on it's own. It looks okay when placed on the wordmark, but frankly looks terrible on a cap. It's not very versatile. I think the Rays jumped the gun way too much with the initial rebrand. People had (stupid) trouble with "Devil"? Fine, just keep the stingray , drop "Devil" and officially call them the "Rays", and let it refer to any other kind of sea ray. They didn't have to pull "ooh now it's a sun ray!" out of a hat. It just seemed desperate, almost like Michael Scott freaking out in the infamous Office fire drill scene, but the branding version. They also didn't have to go double blue either, but that's a different story.

    Although its been over a week since I posted in this thread last, I have one more team today, the Miami Marlins. Their current look has grown on me since they ceased to be the Florida Marlins and officially became the Miami Marlins. Although I like the general idea of their new look, I'm not a fan of the heavy use of black, among other things. My Marlins concept makes better use of the great, bright shades of blue, yellow and orange that are criminally underused in the Marlins identity. Blue is the new primary color and I simplified all of the logos and wordmarks by eliminating black and silver. I decided to keep the unique white road wordmark and pair it with white numbers, because for some reason I actually like it. The blue alternate jersey is basically a recolor of the road jersey. As always, I'd love some C&C and feedback is always appreciated. Anyway, thanks for taking a look. Hopefully, the Mets will be up soon.

    Hell, just steal the Mariners fauxback alternate colors. That would look great for the Brewers, and I believe that blue is a bit darker shade of royal. Looks absolutely great with the cream and yellow.
