    Well the Patriots dynasty rolls on. Congrats to the Pats for winning their sixth Super Bowl; only time will tell if they can make it seven under Brady and Belichick. We shift gears now and look ahead to Super Bowl LIV in Miami next year. Below is the design I made for next year's event down in South Beach. Let me know what you guys think and I appreciate the feedback!

    I hate how people keep saying this kinda thing. Look at the court or look at the scoreboard, it's not hard.

    Since the most boring Super Bowl ever is behind us, l personally look forward to another great MLB season which is just around the corner. I'm one of millions of baseball fans who think that the Colorado Rockies could use at least a refresh, a modernization of their current look. In 2017, the organization has degraded their primary logo to alternate status in order to replace it with this very boring "CR" interlocked initial; unfortunately a trend that many teams in recent years have followed. I actually always liked their former primary mark a lot – thematically – but I absolutely disliked its execution. The simple design makes a lot of sense: the Rocky Mountains in the back while another baseball is leaving the yard – very fitting since the Rockies have had one of the most dangerous offenses in the past years. The wrongest part of their current logo is the font choice. Bembo might look great on other occasions but in this regard it is definitely a blooper. Or does the team play their home games in Aspen? I revised the mountain and the baseball, added an appropriate angular custom typeface and created another third logo, an alternate mark, based on Colorado's state flag. Completely gone is the "CR" initial logo since I can't stand these initials anymore (btw: such an interlocked "CR" never looks good, no matter how you arrange these letters). The revised partial/secondary mountain logo would become the team's helmet and cap logo – at least in most cases. Uniforms will follow in the next couple of days.

    I don't hate the Patriots. I hate the Steelers because their fans are the worst people alive and they cheer for a fat a$$hole rapist quarterback and have gotten away with cheap shots and gifted at least one bad call every game since the early 70's yet won't acknowledge either. At least Patriots fans of a certain age remember some dark days. My main emotion towards the Patriots right now is boredom and envy. I don't think watching them is a fun experience and last night proved that. I'm bored by the Patriots and envious of the people in this weird coastal city that for reasons that will never make sense started winning everything around February of 2002. Who did Bill Simmons blow in a past life to get this? I asked this in October when the Red Sox won, but I'll say it again - surely there are people in Boston now going "I can't make the parade this week. I'll just catch the next one"? those people. We're watching the longest, greatest run in the Super Bowl era and it's gone on so long that the Patriots could be split into two distinct and separate dynasties, plus two super bowl losses sandwiched in-between, with only the coach and QB as the link. I've had Patriots fatigue since 2004. It's ridiculous. The thing I don't like about this Patriots run is that it doesn't matter who plays for them. This was their worst team in a decade and they still won the mother****ing super bowl. Everyone besides the coach and the quarterback is a plug, a robot on an assembly line. It's like watching a factory play football. They're the neutral zone trap of NFL teams. Which in turn means that following all the team building and draft day strategy everyone else is doing feels like a complete waste of time. Is your team having their first good year in a decade? Did all the puzzle pieces seem to finally fit together to make a good team? It doesn't matter because you're going to lose to this team of randos who will beat you slow and joylessly. Your coach will probably do something really stupid too. I hated the 49ers and I hated the Cowboys, but at least they had the decency to do it with some excitement and some of the best players. They also had the decency to fall apart and end. The Pats have broken football and it won't be fun again until the main parts of the machinery finally move on and I don't think we can even say that moment will be when Belichick and Brady finally move on.

    Well if the MLS wants to create a rivalry between SKC and Minnesota, giving them light blue and gray primary kits is a good way to make us hate them!

    It's interesting that the white home/color road (or vice-versa) is so deeply ingrained in North American sports, but isn't really a thing in the most popular sports globally. There are advantages to each philosophy, but I don't think the majority of big soccer games ever played have necessarily looked unprofessional.

    Last night's Super Bowl is in my bottom five worst NFL games I've ever seen. I remember a Browns/Patriots contest back in '03, where the Pats won 9-3 in a game that saw both teams struggle to move the ball past the 50-yard line. That's the only game that immediately comes to mind that was as painful to watch as that abortion last night. Nothing happened in the first half, and I started rooting for the Patriots in the second half, just because I didn't want the game to go to overtime and prolong the suffering. If nothing else, last night provided proof that the NFL isn't fixed, because nobody would script a game that boring.

    It’s not common to see a team brand designed with this type of approach. Take away the helmet, pennant, and other sports paraphernalia, and this could be a store, a fashion label, a restaurant/bar, an agency, etc. They might not be the first team to approach branding like this, but they might be the first to go all in on it, and I think there is a lot of success here. The uniforms are the most underwhelming piece compared to the rest of the work. I’m admittedly sad to see the iconic blue-white-red jersey design go away, but the brand extensions and the helmet are, in my opinion, the pieces that are going to live on and challenge the status quo of team branding into the future. The helmet, in particular, is really interesting in the way it gives you such a unique look from different angles (wings from the side, M from the front), while the logo itself straddles a nice line between monogram and bird. I hope they eventually get the perfect threads to complement the rest, but I’ve gotta hand it to the people who worked on this one; you’ve got the building blocks of something special here.

    So do the Saints, I'd imagine.

    I'd argue that what the 49ers did from 1981 thru 1994 was a little harder to do. Defenses weren't as handcuffed back then as they are now and the NFC back then was a little tougher than the current AFC is. That's not to say that what the Pats have done isn't incredible, I'm just saying that each dynasty has to be judged by the era in which it took place. I don't know if the current Pats offense would have worked as well under 1980's rules. I do think the 49ers offense of the 80's would be even better against today's defenses. Make of that what you will.

    So the one silver lining... Julian Edelman is, I think, the first Jewish Super Bowl MVP. That in and of itself is cool, but given the state of the world? It’s really ing cool.

    I’ll never be on board with the Celtics in black but the contrasting accessories looked good for the Thunder. I wish more teams would do that rather than submit to the Color Rush look.

    In a similar situation, in '94, the Yankees switched from polyester to cotton uniforms with disastrous results.

    GEE You made me realize theres an M on the front of the helmet! So you got a bird on top, wings on side and a M on the front of the helmet! I mean, hey, those guys and gals who created this are cool people, this thing rocks.

    Seeing PG&E crumble and not shift the financial burden to their customers would probably be a lot better way to “heal” Californians right now.

    I love the Thunder's OKC-set: Throw together a white version of this (or don't, it's probably not that important anymore) and it's top 5 in the league and maybe the best outside of the classics And they get bonus points for the way they use their tights to change up the colors.

    Unpopular opinion: I like the one-helmet rule. Sure, it costs us a few throwbacks we'd like (Bucco Bruce, for example) but I think more bad than good can come from more freedom to have multiple helmets. There are college teams that mess with their helmets enough that they don't really have an identifiable helmet. I don't think we really need the jets wearing navy blue titans helmets once or twice per year.

    Thats the problem though they will not be. I am sure there is going to be at least one element of this uniform that most people will say if they would have just done this different it would be a great set or even good

    No, no, no, and no. Four strikes, you're out (and then some). That uniform set is so bad that it has sapped my enthusiasm for the team. Now this is a sparkling uniform set that deserves respect as one of the best ever.

    That was... absolutely miserable. Having the game within your reach for nearly the entire 60 minutes and being able to do absolutely nothing with it. It sucks. To see the the offense completely stall like that is extremely tough. Like against the Bears, it felt like the Bears imposing onto the Rams. In this, it felt like the Rams doing it unto themselves. That’s why it’s just so frustrating to have the game where it was, extremely winnable for like 97% of it, the defense playing its heart out at a championship level, and just unable to get what they needed, as they did most of the season. All in all, a stinging experience to learn from, for all of those guys. Was Goff ready for the stage? It didn't look like it a lot, but he's been there now. Was McVay outc oached or in his own head? Maybe, but sometimes you need someone else to point out your own flaws. I truly do feel they'll be back soon enough. The core is too good, McVay is too smart. As miserable as this all feels, the other thing I feel is how I can’t wait to see those guys in camp next July/August. I can’t wait to be back at UC Irvine and do it all again from the start. More so than anything else before, this is my football team. I love those guys. I loved learning their stories. I loved rooting for them. And I can’t wait for another round. Goodnight to the 2018 NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams. See you in camp. Ram It.

    Just some minor nitpicks: I'd have the left side of the wave come to a point like the right, and just continue the tree all the way down to meet it. I'd continue the outlines of the shadows of the LIV up to meet the rest of the outline. Also, the rectangle shape on top maybe could be replaced with a ball shape, with the dots as the laces. Sorry to focus on those kind of really minor issues! It's really nice already, and way better than the generic one they've released.

    Current: The Kings. I love the purple/gray combo. It is (minus the advert, of course) the best they've ever looked. Recent: The Cavs primaries when LeBron returned. Simple and beautiful. Older: Bucks Irish rainbow; no red. Just green.

    I don’t hate the Patriots. I’m not sure why I don’t, most of my life I’ve been a confirmed “dynasty hater”. My first sports hate as a wee little tyke was the 70’s Steelers (tho, mostly because they beat the Vikings in a SB). In the 90’s I hated the Redwings and the Cowboys (honestly, I can’t really remember not hating the Cowboys). I hated the Magic Johnson Lakers AND the Kobe Bryant Lakers, and am preparing to hate the LeBron Lakers. I hate all Yankees, forever. I didn’t hate the 49ers for some reason… probably because of “the catch” game, which hilariously broke Cowboys hearts. And now, I don’t hate the Patriots, which seems weird to me. In fact, although I usually think I’d rather not see them get in, once they’re in I find myself hoping they’ll win, which I ended up doing again last night. I guess as long as they’re going to be great, I’d rather see them be really great than just pretty great… I was surprised to find myself really disappointed when the mediocre Giants led by huge doofus Eli Manning wrecked their perfect season. It was like seeing Einstein get corrected on the math problem by a freshman student… who wants to see that? It probably also helps that I don’t know any annoying Patriot fans. With all those other teams I mentioned, I had to deal with bunches of bandwagon jackasses, none worse than the “America’s Team” a-holes. The only Patriot fan I personally know was born and raised in Boston, is a fine upstanding police officer, and one of the nicest guys I know. So anyway, I get why everyone hates them… they’ll never be my favorite team, but I’m willing to ride this out and see the history first hand. For what it’s worth, I don’t hate Golden State, either.

    This is only the second game I've watched that Tony Romo's done. It pains me to say it, but he's good. Like.. real good. For someone who's obviously not an announcer (his voice and cadence aren't really like most pro announcers) he's really enjoyable to listen to, teaches you stuff, and doesn't kill you with annoying cliches.
