    I've realized that I am this series and this series is me and I have to stop abandoning it, so expect more frequent updates. (and more food stay tuned!)

    Yes - the large star is the MLS version of a scudetto. Just not as garish. I can see your objection, but I don't share it. There's something cool about a defending champ wearing that badge of pride. As for the Galaxy, I think five silver stars looks more impressive than one gold one. But mixing and matching? What's the point supposed to be?

    As somebody who's been suspended for a short time before, that week can feel like a long time when you're jonesing for updates on the Jets-new-uniform-hate bandwagon.

    Sigh...this again...? Please stop forcing this 1880s crap on us, that no living person ever saw on the field nor can relate to... If you want fans to hearken back to a long-forgotten era, just eliminate the black and take us back to this:

    I've always felt that this Bobcats set was far superior to the jumbled Mavs-esque mess they switched to. Aside from the strange collars they used, I dig everything about this set.

    Hello all, I had done a brand refresh for the Knicks a while back, prior to the release of the Nike uniforms, but seeing as the Knicks are now in position come next year to be competitive once again (not gonna jinx anything), I decided to give the Knicks an extensive refresh to the team's brand. Colors: The new blue and orange are more reminiscent of the the shade in the teams past, becoming deeper and more pronounced. Silver is removed entirely in the color scheme. Primary Logo: A blend of both the Knicks' 70s logo and the logo from the Present (New York removed). The font is an updated version of the one they currently use. Secondary Logo: Simply a recolor of their current secondary with the silver outlining removed. Uniforms: The chest text on the jersey reverts to the old style the team had used since the 60s and are well known for. The silver outlining is removed entirely leaving only the white/blue and orange on the sleeves. The shorts receive a new side and waist pattern reminiscent of the 70s and 90s uniforms but reworked in color so it matches up with the pattern on the bottom of the shorts. The new primary is also added to the short where the old one was. I welcome any CC and general comments and I hope y'all like it!

    Distorted it in Photoshop to a flat rectangle. Looks like it says 2019 Branding, and I do think it says new york above jets.

    That last post got me to thinking about DC United. For a moment I considered renaming them to District United, but DCU is pretty iconic at this point. I went away from the eagle, because the black heraldic eagle has always felt less American and more...on a different....Axis...if you know what I mean. DC was planned in a diamond, so let's run with that and their fantastic flag.

    Pretty much every baseball fans know that the movie Field of Dreams takes place in a cornfield in Iowa, my home state. So I thought, why not take that cornfield in Dyersville, Iowa to the next level? I formed a brand new amateur/semi-pro independent baseball league that would take place exclusively in Iowa that would begin play in the year of 1920, the year after the Black Sox Scandal in the 1919 World Series. Ray Kinsella himself, who woke up in the 1920’s instead of 1989, would be the league commissioner. Is this real? Is this a dream? Who cares? The catch is the league cannot play in professional minor league baseball stadiums. They must be played in cornfields, parks, the countryside, or even high school stadiums if necessary. The infield must be regulation sized, but the outfield wall is strongly encouraged to be natural-made, such as stalks of corn, row of trees, bushes, or even a creek. But on occasion, a fence is okay. The players can be anybody above 18. They could be a fresh college kid who’s just looking to play ball, a 30-something year old adult who’s looking to stay fit, or wash-up MLB veterans who just want to keep playing. Doesn’t matter. As long you’re good enough to play, you’re on the team. It is strongly encouraged that the team is mostly comprised of local players. The teams would be placed in smaller towns throughout Iowa, and the bigger cities would naturally dip join the league at points. Some teams would be fictional, some would be based on real-life teams, etc. In other words, this is going to be a Town Team Baseball type league. I found a document that has the historical population for every Iowa cities/towns starting in 1860 up until 2010. So I'll do my best to follow that document for when more teams join the league. Some teams are planned, while some teams I may need help with. I'll solicit for those when necessary. This project has been something I’ve been toying with for quite a while, even during the Solar League Baseball project also here in the Sports Fan Fiction. After seeing the success @Section30 with his Minnesota Amateur Hockey League, and asking for his blessing to do this project due to its similarities, I decided to give this shot and see where it takes us! The teams for the inaugural season will come in the next two posts, one for each league. For the record, I am not using OOTP to simulate this, for I have come up with a simulation method using Excel (it’s quite complicated, but I’ll probably explain in a later post). As for the Solar project, I kind of hate to say this, but I’d say that the league is on a major hiatus. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed doing it a lot, but I just wanted to do something different. I have asked the mods to lock the Solar thread, but maybe, someday in the future I'll come back to it. But no promises. Hope you understand!

    Without even getting into his firsts, Robinson had some pretty amazing stats. I think he's underrated among the all-time greats, if that makes any sense.

    The problem with these is that they are just too damn good looking, they leverage a classic design which would likely have staying power for well over a decade. Designs like this mean less work for nike.

    Quite the contrary. By waiting until the offseason, they actually open up the bidding war by bringing in the Celtics, Knicks, and probably other teams too. They won't get "nothing in return." As for major free agents, they've never signed with New Orleans and probably never will. That isn't going to change whether they give in to the Lakers' demands or not.

    in a vacuum, yes, it could have stayed. or as @VancouverFan69 says, it could have been an effective third jersey (provided the jersey was a little more toned down. the rangers' lady liberty look was, in my opinion, very classy, especially the white version). but as an islanders fan who watched this whole thing go down live and in person, let me assure you that it needed to die the quick death it did. you cannot even imagine how much outrage there was over this logo/sweater. i was in elementary school at the time it was introduced, so of course i loved it. us young kids were the only ones who did though. and as the situation with the franchise got more and more dire, the fisherman logo really became a lightning rod for the fans' outrage. the "save the islanders coalition" was this outspoken fan group that made changing the logo, among other grievances, their mission. i was in the stands in april '96 when they sent (i believe) rich pilon out in the fisherman jersey, then ripped it off to show the 'wave' jersey with the traditional crest. the coliseum went nuts. as far as the prototype differences, it was really only the diagonal/wave hem stripe. some early starter replica jerseys actually had the diagonal stripe on them.

    But make the jersey midnight green with silver numbers and all of a sudden it becomes a simple, modern take on the throwback, and a top 5 uniform in the league.

    The Iowa Baseball State Playoffs was quite unique for its time. Instead of the top teams only getting into the playoffs, ALL teams in the league would qualify for the playoffs. Ray Kinsella produced the playoffs this way because he wanted every team to have the opportunity to be a “Cinderella” team. In the 1920 Playoffs, the bracket was split into two six-team brackets, one for each league. It was a single-elimination tournament, with all games taking place at the Field of Dreams site in Dyersville, Iowa. The top two teams in each league received a bye into the quarterfinals. The winners of each bracket (a.k.a., the league “champions”) would face each other in the Kinsella Series in a best-of-seven series. In the first rounds, there were two major upsets, as the 13-win Dyersville and 9-win Marshalltown (both no. 6 seeds) defeated the heavily favored no. 3 seeds Dubuque Dubs and Des Moines Monks. In the quarterfinals, the top two teams had no issues handling their opponents, as all no. 1 and 2 teams advanced to the semi-finals. In the Kinsella Championship, Manchester pulled out a hard-fought game where they defeated Maquoketa, 4-3, in 11 innings. Over in the Central Iowa Championship, Ames continued their hot streak by handling the Raccoons, 7-2. The Manchester Burrs will take on the Ames Cy's in the Iowa Baseball State Championship, a.k.a. The Kinsella Series. I'm hoping I'll get the Championship results to you by tonight or sometimes tomorrow. I am still working on a graphic that displays the Championship results.

    Very glad to see the Rebels gone. Wouldn't mind seeing the new owners keep them in Atlanta, however a move could also be good. Atlanta could become the LA of this timeline: a city that lost a team in the 90s that becomes a relocation threat until a team finally caves in the 2000s. Are there any teams looking to get a new stadium/in danger of relocating?

    Oh, that would be hilarious. The team headquarters is now in Louisville… We decided to move the headquarters back to Atlanta. Suck it, Jackson.

    This whole era has been absolutey awful for the NFL, and the Patriots winning a lot is very low on the list of reasons why. The NFL is constantly making the wrong choice and pretty much trips over their dick every time they take a step. Holding cities hostage for public funds to build stadiums, the recent Kaepernick thing and race relations as a whole, how they’ve handled replay and the refs in general, their overall apathy to domestic violence and crime among their players, and (the most egregious thing) the way they’ve swept the CTE findings under the rug and have poured money into false findings (which is not just a bad look, but is borderline criminal) are all WAY bigger issues. I’m to the point where I Hope this entire league crashes and burns, but it sure ain’t because the Pats won a lot.

    I might be in the minority here but I loved the style of the old template. The thicker outlines and blocky look were fantastic. With this new one, I feel that adding some thicker outlines and making it a tad more blocky would create a great update to one of the best templates on this site
