    I'm sure I missed a thing or two here, as I started making it before I really thought things out, but here- have a helmet flag (after all, helmets are what I do)! Happy Independence Day, everyone!

    My father and I took an impromptu day trip up to Cooperstown today because, you know, why not (there are benefits to living in the City), and noticed something very cool as a uniform buff (my father was unimpressed): The first ever (according to the Hall) baseball uniform, worn by the Baraboo (Wisconsin) Base Ball Club. I figured this would be appreciated here, and that it wouldn't really fit in MLB Changes 2017. It's a standard old style jersey, complete with a bib bearing a pale-ish blue old English B (I'm not the best photographer, plus glass in the way). The cap is plain blue, with a white band of what I believe was leather across the lower crown. Just thought it was an interesting piece of uniform history to share with y'all. Are the first uniforms in other sports known? Would love to see. As a bonus, some uniforms that don't get a lot of coverage here: the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.

    So then when are we going to see the last few Adizero new lightweight, cooler, stronger technology. Decreasing crest weight by 46%, number weight by up to 60%. Featuring Adidas Clima technology to maximize air circulation with materials that are 133% more permeable than current on ice fabrics, 27% stronger in burst testing, and 72% tougher on abrasion testings?

    i find it interesting that the Kings still use the old number font on their practice reversibles. You can even see how they mixed the new word mark with the old number font.

    This, to me, is the best logo for Cleveland. It's a classic, clean, strong look that's also unique in MLB and has already become popular among the fans. There's no need to "spice it up". We might as well change the Cubs' C and Reds' C with that mentality.

    This excerpt from that article sums it up so well: "As Horowitz started outlining his digital vision for Fox Sports, he candidly explained that content that had performed well for Fox and was a key part of the site’s turnaround were to be no longer part of the strategy. With a very matter-of-the-fact delivery, Horowitz shared his distaste of the legacy content strategy in place to a room full of employees who had taken great pride in making FoxSports.com a much more trafficked website over the last year (upwards of 50 percent by most accounts)." Ignoring what works, backed by traffic analytics, and going in a direction not supported by those same analytics, I suspect. Topped off by this quote from Horowitz' presentation: "The written word is still relevant, but the advertising value of written content, what we call display, is not growing." So many execs get hung up on the value of pre-roll ads for video without acknowledging that online readers don't actually watch video on traditional news websites. Someone above (EDIT: It was Cosmic) summarized it so well (paraphrasing): "Why watch an ad and a 3-minute video to tell me something I can read in 30 seconds?"

    I was about to compliment them for finally refining the lettering and getting rid of the fat-stemmed B, but Then my jaw dropped when I saw the new B is upside down. Can’t believe it.

    The Cubs have a white outline and the Reds have a white logo. Both provide adequate contrast. This does not. Those are also more visually distinct and interesting designs. Those don't look like they could be a part of a standard Word font set. This does.

    moves like that should be illegal. It makes a mockery of the salary cap (not that the NBA cap isn't a complete cluster f of loopholes and jargon) and only makes it harder for the "have nots" to compete, because they're not going to get the discount. If you support this move, but trash The Process, then you're a hypocrite. Would any other free agent take significantly less to sign with a team like the Sixers or Bucks or some other crap team? Nope. Hence the need for a process.

    It's a million times better than the ugly "Caveman/Primitive Cultures" C that gets trotted out by members here (a logo second only to the "star trident" and the "maple leaf" as one of the worst cap logos in baseball history). The best option will always be the angular C. This is the most aesthetically pleasing logo the team has ever had, and would be one of the most recognisable marks anywhere had it been kept. More important, this logo succeeds in the very difficult task of invoking something from Native traditions -- namely, woodcarving -- without being offensive or dehumanising. If the Indians had kept this cap logo since it was introduced, the team would be held up as the model of handling a Native-inspired name with respect. But that Buckeyes-style C is also very good, as it, too, has a history with the team. That sort of monogram is in the universal baseball style that works well with any uniform. The Red Sox, the Brooklyn Dodgers, the New York Giants and later Mets, the Kansas City A's, the Los Angeles Angels, and probably other teams have used a cap logo in this dignified style. Also, seeing the version with the loop in the top reminds me how fitting the late-1980s White Sox cap would be for the Indians. If the White Sox had never worn this, it would be a great Cleveland hat. Indeed, it would be good even despite its having been briefly used by the Sox! This is better than the script I cap for two reasons: the cap initial for Cleveland should represent the city, not the nickname; and the initial on the I cap looks a lot more like a J than like an I. The main point is that all of these designs beat the utterly characterless block C, which would rank near the bottom in the World Baseball Classic or even in a beer league, and is a total embarrassment for a Major League team.

    Ottawa Senators II I changed the "batman" eye, and put more black shadow into the logo, which seemed to make the gold and red jump a bit more... Again, it seemed that the majority of Sens fans preferred the heritage uni with the side-view logo...

    Hello, I have been a sports logo junkie since I was a kid. I used to do my own concepts/tweeks years ago but they weren't very good and I gave up. Anyway, anyone old enough to remember when several MLB ballparks from the late 1970 thru the mid-1990s had put team logos on its outfield wall? I do (I'm a 90s kid) and that's part of the reason I became a sports logo junkie. Most of the ballparks that did this were the often-despised multipurpose/cookie cutter/domed stadiums of that period (Veterans, Busch Memorial, Three Rivers, Metrodome, etc). The classic-era ballparks (Wrigley, Fenway, Yankee, Tiger) did not put team logos on its outfield logos nor did the retro-themed newer ballparks (Camden Yards, Arlington, Jacobs/Progressive Field, etc) Why some teams decided to team logos on their outfield wall during that perior, I don't know. The reason I decided to make this post is to see which stadiums had updated a logo when a new logo made its debut prior to the new season. I also wanted to see how accurate the stadiums were when it came to updating logos when a team updated its logo/uniforms. Here are a timeline of which MLB ballparks had put team logos on its outfield wall: Veterans Stadium (Phillies) (1976-1996) Three Rivers Stadium (Pirates) (1976-1982, 1994-1997) Astrodome (Astros) (1976-1985) Arlington Stadium (Rangers) (circa 1977-1978) Kingdome (Mariners) (1977-1990) Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium (Padres) (1978-1993) Exhibition Stadium (Blue Jays) (1978-early 1989) Skydome (Blue Jays) (1989-1998) Busch Memorial Stadium (Cardinals) (1979-1995) Shea Stadium (Mets) (1980-1994) Fulton County Stadium (Braves) (circa 1982-1991) Cleveland Municipal Stadium (Indians) (circa 1985-1989) Metrodome (Twins) (1985-circa 1995) Olympic Stadium (Expos) (1987-2004) Anaheim Stadium (Angels) (1989-1996) Mile High Stadium (Rockies) (1993-1994) Pro Player Stadium (Marlins) (1996-1999) Bonus: Dodger Stadium (Dodgers) (1980 All-Star Game only) Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum (1994 movie "Angels in the Outfield") County Stadium in Milwaukee (1989 movie "Major League") Let's start with the long-defunct Montreal Expos. The images were originally from old VHS tapes/Youtube video clips so don't expect HD-like quality. Olympic Stadium in Montreal (1987-2004) ================================ MLB team logos were first placed on the outfield wall of Olympic Stadium in the 1987 season. 1987-1988 -------------- The logos seemed to be arranged in a random order The NL East team logos were on the Center-Left Field Wall the logos The NL West team logos were on the Center-Right Field Wall the logos Braves logo looks very different as it's not primary logo with the tomahawk that team adopted that year (which they still use today) Phllies logo is the 1971-1991 Alternate rather than the 1984-1991 primary 1987 team order (from a Phillies @ Expos (1987) game) NL East (from left to right) MTL, PIT, PHI, STL, NYM, CHC NL West (from left to right) HOU, CIN, ATL, SF, LA, SD 1989 ------ The padding of the wall changed from a dull shade of blue to a more vibrant shade of royal blue. The Phillies logo changed from the 1971-1991 alternate Logo to the 1984-1991 primary logo In addition, the logos appeared to be rearranged based on division standings 1989 team order NL East (from left to right; 1st place to last place) CHC, STL, NYM, MTL, PIT, PHI NL West (from left to right; 1st place to last place) SF, SD, HOU, LA, CIN, ATL 1989 Cubs @ Expos (Cubs clinch NL East game) 1990-1991 -------------- The Braves logo changed to the 1987-present primary during the 1990 season The Padres Logo changed to the 1991-2003 primary during the 1991 season Phillies @ Expos from 1991 1992 ------- The Expos logo was updated to the 1992-2004 primary; the Phillies logo was also updated to the 1992-present primary Mets @ Expos from 1992 Cubs @ Expos from 1992 (Gary Carter's last hit) 1993 ------ The Rockies & Marlins logos are added as the 2 expansion teams made their debut that season the Marlins logo is an alternate rather than the primary from 1993-2004 The Reds changed their logo (and uniforms) to the 1993-1998 primary, but the 1968-1992 logo is still present Phillies @ Expos from 1993 1994 ------- Due to the three-division realignment; team logos are rearranged based on new divisions: NL East team logos are at the Center-Left field Wall NL West team logos are at the Center field Wall NL Central team logos & Expos championship/retired number banners at Center-Right field wall Astros updated their logo (and uniforms) but the 1975-1993 primary logo is still seen Giants updated their logo to the 1994-1999 primary but the 1983-1993 logo is still seen NL West (left to right; 1st place to last place) LA, COL, SF, SD NL East (left to right; 1st place to last place) ATL, MTL, PHI, FLA, NYM NL Central (left to right; 1st place to last place) CIN, HOU, PIT, STL, CHC Braves @ Expos (6/27/94) 1995-1997 -------------- The Astros logo was finally updated to the then-primary 1995-1999 logo The Reds and Giants then-newer logos were not updated 1998-2004 --------------- By 1998, the team logos were rearranged again due to expansion/realignment . The NL Central and NL West team logos switched places with the NL Central team logos now at the Left field outfield wall and the NL West team logos at the right field wall. The Diamondbacks (expansion team) and Brewers (who switched from AL to NL) logos were added; By this period, Olympic Stadium was very obsolete and outdated as newer retro-themed ballparks were replacing the multipurpose/cookie cutter stadiums. By 2000, Olympic Stadium was the only stadium that still put mlb team logos on its outfield wall. In addition, the stadium also appeared to be lazy and inconsistent when it came to updating team logos well into 2004: The Cardinals logo was updated to the 1998-present primary logo The Pirates logo was updated to the 1998-2013 primary logo The Marlins logo was still the alternate logo from 1993-2004 The Giants logo was still the 1983-1993 logo and continued to be even as the Giants updated their look (and logo) again in 2000 (which is still used today) The Brewers changed their look & logo in 2000 but the 1994-1999 logo was still seen The Padres changed their logo & look in 2004 (the 2004-2010 logo) but the 1991-2003 logo was still seen The Reds logo was finally updated in 1998 but when the team had a new logo (& uniforms) from 1999-2006, the 1993-1998 logo was still seen The Astros updated their uniforms & logo in 2000 but the 1995-1999 logo was still seen For example, the logo setup from the Expos last home game in 2004: NL Central (left to right; 1st to last) STL, CHC, HOU, CIN, PIT, MIL NL East (Left to Right; 1st to last) ATL, PHI, FLA, NYM, MTL NL West (Left to Right; 1st to last) LA, SF, SD, COL, ARZ Padres @ Expos from 1999 (Tony Gywnn 3000th hit) Expos final home game in 2004 Bonus -------- Random images found from Gettyimages between 1998 and 2004 My next post will be Exhibition Stadium & Skydome (now Rogers Centre), the two homes of the mothership's favorite team, the Toronto Blue Jays. Stay tuned.

    Because there won't be alternate jerseys next year, I was thinking of ideas for alternate ideas for jerseys, and this popped into my head. This Red Wings concept takes their sash from their stadium series jersey, and adds a stripe below, like their winter classic jerseys. The striping pattern also throws back to when the Red Wings were the Cougars. the sleeve numbers are placed in the stripes to make the jersey unique. C&C is appreciated!

    Winnipeg Jets In this set, the Jets rely on their primary logo to establish the color scheme and overall theme of the uniforms. Red and silver are added into the identity and the double-blue scheme is abandoned. The striping pattern draws from military rankings and sits within an upper-arm pattern that is angled to match. This pattern creates an extended yoke on the away which connects to the current identity in that the home remains yoke-less while the away adopts a different look based on the same design. The socks echo the pattern of the ranking bars and the Jets' current secondary find its place on the pants, where it is much better suited IMO than its current position on the shoulders. Due to to the upper arm design, the TV numbers move to the shoulders to finish off this military-inspired look.

    So after a quick search through various retail sites, it seems like the shirt style version of the new USMNT jersey is almost completely sold out, while the authentic is still in ample supply. Good thing I snagged mine up Saturday. The replica version probably would have sold just about as well, so I hope someone, either the team or Nike learns a lesson in this.

    Do you guys normally gravitate towards video news stories, sports or otherwise? If it's a sports highlight or a news story that has a compelling video component, sure. Other than that? I normally run the other way. I find it normally takes a video three minutes to tell me what I can read in 30 seconds. If Fox is headed towards mostly video, I won't be going there much.

    Yeah the outlines could be thicker. I'm honestly not a fan of drop shadows, it's too 90's for me. I guess the pant stripes are debatable. I didn't realize they don't have them right now And the NOB is small because that was how the template is made. I could enlarge it I guess. I didn't make the template. I'll keep working on the Bruins. Here's their crosstown rival, USC. If if ain't broke, don't fix it. Simple enough.

    Here's a tip: if the question you are wondering is any form of 'will this new football league work?', the answer is no. Fans have no interest in anything other than the NFL and its long-established minor league (aka NCAA). I don't mean this as a slap against the CFL, so please don't imply one.
