  2. At least one of those jerseys should have a “Tampa Bay” wordmark or the “TB” insignia.

  5. Then people will be saying “one sponsor on a jersey isn’t that bad, we’ll have to get used to it. When it gets to 2, it’s gonna be another level..”

  6. So our final Expansion entry and final team entry here is another WHA revival, as well as the least likely of all of these expansion concepts and let me tell you why. If you remember back to the expansion map, you might remember a teal and orange NHL shield in San Diego. Well my dumbass just conveniently forgot that I dropped them into the only division in the NHL with the team that brought teal back to the NHL as well as in this universe, one of the two teams that makes orange their primary color. Okay so that was the first issue to reconcile, which I thought I did well with the addition of navy, because lets be honest, if the WHA Mariners had survived into the 90's, you can probably imagine them going navy like many other royal blue teams. But all that aside, like I mentioned, a WHA revival of a team that, outside of inability to get fans in the stands, really had three fairly successful seasons. Also with other teams, such as the defunct Fleet of the AAF and the presence of Naval Base SD, the Mariners made sense. Though the Padres' MLB affiliate, the Seattle Mariners might have issue with another major league team using the mariners nickname, but these are just concepts after all. Home - Away: In contrast to the WHA Mariners, the uniforms are primarily blue. The stripes are based on those uniforms, with some changes, like the teal being added onto the outside of the stripes. Mariners-ship wheel logo on the chest, SD anchor on the shoulders. Collar bone stripes around the yokes. Pants have the same stripes down the sides, socks match their jerseys. Biggest changes between home and away, is the addition of a colored yoke, as well as the logo reading San Diego. Alternate: So the issue of colors came back up again, in what color was the alternate going to be? Also I just noticed that I forgot to remove the "Legacy" from the thing. I ultimately went with the teal as the alternate, just based solely on the uniqueness factor. There's more orange in the league than teal. Biggest changes from the home and away is the chest logo is gone, replaced with a Rangers-style San Diego wordmark, in homage again, to the previous incarnation of the Mariners. And just like that folks, its all said and done. Thanks for following along, and I'm sure I'll see y'all again in another concept series! It does seem pretty similar, but I think that the colors and jerseys are different enough, plus they'd be in different divisions, so there'd be minimal overlap and confusion I think.

  7. The owners don't want to give up a revenue stream? Theres a shocker.... Have I gotten used to helmet ads? Yes. Do I like them? Hell no. Will this alter my viewing of the NHL product? nope.

  8. I did this Cleveland Spiders' concept, and I'm trying out various color schemes. Obviously they could keep navy and red (in fact, my guess is they will), but rebranding is a good opportunity to reduce MLB's overabundance of navy/red teams. First, brown and scarlet. Completely unique color scheme in sports and an easy connection to the Cleveland Browns.

  11. So I noticed the ATL UTD Unity kits disappeared from MLSstore.com last night. That may be because a Hebrew phrase on the kits was spelled backwards. Some people were pointing this out on Twitter before and during the launch yesterday. As I wrote on the mothership, the Hebrew phrase meant to be included on the shirt is תיקון עולם‎ (tikkun olam, or “repair of the world” in English), and it is spelled correctly in a graphic on the team’s website. The photos provided by the club don’t clearly show that particular phrase on the shirt, but the first word is visible in one retweeted by club during the launch event Thursday, and the characters are in reverse order (confirmed this with a Hebrew speaker).

  12. Sorry for the shameless plug. But I thought the color balance was interesting. I think I figured out a way to make everyone happy. I was thinking a lot about this yesterday and maybe some combination of wine/orange/navy could work. Using colors from all 3 of Cleveland's sports teams and still keeping navy/red from the Indians branding. Mods can delete if you want this in the concepts section instead.

  13. Denver Broncos - helmet overhaul in the Mile High City While watching the various episodes of Full Color Football on YouTube, one of the teams that consistently stood out to me visually was the Denver Broncos. I'll admit it wasn't always for the right reasons. But I really took a liking to their set from the 1965-66 seasons. Orange has always felt like a better primary color for the Broncos home uniforms. The sleeve swaths for the TV numbers add a nice burst of color. Overall, the uniform stays pretty faithful to what the team actually wore. But I definitely wanted to change the helmet. The orange shell with a single-color horse didn't seem to fit. I came across the football player standing on top of the bucking horse logo from that era and really liked the cartoon quality. So I worked to isolate the horse and voila. On a blue shell, it looked a lot sharper than the original from that era. Let me know what you think. Next up - the Minnesota Vikings see an original prototype come to life. References / Inspiration

  14. They just made $650 million from Seattle. There are more ads on the ice, ads on the glass, ad banners by the scorebug show up throughout the game. More split-screen ads every time there's a slight lull in play. Not a single team would face serious financial hardship if they got rid of the helmet ads. edit: Lol I forgot about the huge ESPN deal too. The NHL is rolling in money right now.

  16. There aren't enough "destination cities" to go around anyway. As much as it was scummy the way Oklahoma City got their NBA team, their fans weren't complicit in that and it would be unfair to them to say they deserve to lose their team because it's a place no superstar cares to play in. That's an entirely different problem. Off the top of my head...Minneapolis, Orlando, Memphis, Sacramento, Portland, and you can name others to certain degrees...not destination cities either. And where can the NBA expand that does fit that description without already having an NBA team?

  19. Hot damn! GM Stevens at work. Easier than I thought to unload Kemba. I’m sure Horford is probably washed but seems like a low-risk move for the Celtics that maybe he’s got some juice left for a system where he thrived. I loved Kemba as a UConn guy and for recycling all those old Antoine jerseys, so sad that it didn’t really work out. Karmic, maybe, that Boston dumped IT but weirdly changed nothing in the long run at the PG position!

  22. There's something very clever about a star with mountain peaks as its points. There's something very clever about a star with a negative-space mountain range defining its bottom angle. There's something very stupid about putting both on the same cap.

  23. Nothing about this looks "firey" to me...but it's miles better than the Latin Kings knockoff it's replacing. Though...looking at that, something tells me we're gonna see a LOOOOTTTTT of that sky blue color in their next branding life. (As if the league needs more light blue...)

  24. It's a vast improvement, and the return of the Florian Cross is very much welcomed, but holy cow why does everything have to be shoved in a thin circle now? The Revolution are going to do it, Montreal did it. It just feels like they needed a way to add the navy in and so added a circle and called it a day. Makes this whole look, while solid as a whole, feel way too generic and somewhat off-brand. Maybe even adding some text around the logo instead of under it would have helped with the generic issue. Here's to hoping they bring back the red shirts w/ white chest stripe or something similar on the home jerseys. It certainly seems like those very solid nice/clash jerseys are staying.

  26. Yeah, I think it's part of that line of merchandise they started last year where they brought back the old kids club logo. I'm pretty sure I've seen it other places before too. It might be some sort of retro alternate logo.

  30. Probably just wear the normal away jerseys. In the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty One, how have teams not gotten around to including full-body pictures on the players with equipment as part of their initial release dump. The website has a picture of Mitchell in the jersey, but it's only from the shoulders up. Here's a picture from the Team Store account with retail jerseys though. FWIW, I like them. I don't have a Stamps jersey and I might buy one of these.

  31. EA isn't good at keeping up with current uniform trends (among other things..) Why showcase Miami, Buffalo, Tampa, etc. in white on white when it's clear these teams now favor their colored pants with the white jersey. Isn't it a better marketing ploy to use colorful, eyecatching uniforms on the players anyway?

  32. The release says they'll be worn for six out of seven home games, and I assume that one remaining home game will be the black jerseys on Labour Day, so the primary home jersey looks like it won't be worn this year (during the regular season at least). That's also a new set of pants because the Stamps don't currently have a white pair.

  33. It's a good phrase for the shirt, given the theme. I suspect that Hebrew being written right to left is probably the reason for the misprint. Either the program they used for the text couldn't handle it or someone who wasn't super familiar with the language laid it out wrong.

  36. I still think (and I know I've mentioned this in other threads) that they should go with a hybrid model. Assign teams to cities and have them play several true home/road games and several games as part of touring events. Ex. -- 10 game schedule. 4 home games, 4 road games, 2 tour/neutral site games (or maybe 3-3-4).

  41. Used to be that both of their alts were strictly Friday only, and they held to that almost perfectly for 10 years (but for day-night doubleheaders and other acceptable diversions). Then they picked the 2018 World Series of all times to ditch that protocol and it’s been haywire ever since.

  42. That's clearly a throwback jersey. Is this logo. Used from 1945-1971 Also, from the previously mentioned new Stampeders' helmet sighting a few pages back, the important thing here is STRIPES. The Stamps haven't had stripes on their helmets since 1994.

  45. Thanks for stopping by! It's quite nice to hear that the subtleties are appreciated. Played with some new Inkscape tools for that New England map kit, so glad you like it. I look forward to seeing your Burbank design, and hopefully my design in development for SJ will deliver! Welcome, and thank you for the comment! I'm glad you think the name and logo worked out. And there are surprisingly few earthy-colored teams, I guess. Yeah, wanted something a tad more uniquely Utahn (and possibly something that could go against Colorado's burgundy). Thanks, I'm proud of that mountain/crown; the inspiration came from the '09 All-Star game logo. ---------------------------------- Anyways, after returning from my trip to experience the majesty of Utah for myself, I'm back with my next team, a tweak of the Philadelphia Union: So the team's old secondary logo was great, so I pretty much just reworked the top of the shield into the shape of the Commodore Barry Bridge visible from the Union's stadium, and added the Philadelphia flag colors to the shield. Of course the home needed to bring back the center stripe. This one pretty much just adds the Liberty Bell crack and horizontal trim to it. I like the current IRL away, but my take is pretty different. It's a design depicting the tower of Philadelphia City Hall as a subtler center stripe. Thanks again for your comments!

  47. NHL 21's custom team builder has taken bunny hops in the last few iterations, but still lacks in many areas. But it does help launchpad a designer, like myself, when coming up with new teams, case in point, my take on the then unnamed Seattle NHL team, which I took in the direction of the Seattle Pilots. I gave Orlando the nod because 1: They're my current NHL 21 expansion franchise, thus halfway designed already & 2: They were a geographical fit. What comes out of an aborted, but not abandoned rebrand for UCF from the 1972 Project, was a dumb but also kinda fun idea for Florida's 3rd NHL entry. With the entendre of the name in place, comes with some influence from NASA, particularly in the wordmark fonts, as well as in the alternate Space Shuttle logo. The asterisk is not a part of the logo, but in fact the logo isn't mine by design. It belongs to Dylan Nowak, which you can see here, but I really didn't have a strong enough logo, and resorted to the team logo I use in game. Home - Away: With the exception of Philly and Edmonton in real life, and Anaheim and Philly in this universe, wearing orange as a primary color, it made logical sense, especially for a team in Florida to go all out on the orange. Two thick stripes on the sleeves and the socks, single stripe on the hem. Citronaut logo on the chest, alt on the shoulders. Alternate: Similar to the home and away jerseys. with two big stripes, this time, spaced out slightly, and running across the chest. Citronauts wordmark in the middle of the stripe, with the Citro logo on the shoulders now. Everything else that was orange now becomes black. No Legacy or RR uniforms for the four expansion teams. C&C welcome! I did say above that for the purposes of this thread, I'm gonna run with the teams I picked out, but I am thinking about another thread for just throwing expansion ideas out there.
