  1. Fellow Ohioan here. We could react like you did or....we can return fire. According to his profile, FiddySicks lives in Sacramento. It's not like the dude is dunking on Ohio from Honolulu. Sacramento is Cleveland with nicer weather, far less charm, and one almost NBA level basketball team. No one moves to California because they dream of living in Sacramento.

  5. OK, I have questions. With the first comment, are you suggesting that you believe the designers currently working at the major athletic suppliers didn't go to school? And with the second... are you saying that if they had been educated in a renaissance-style sweat shop, apprenticed to an old master in an indentured servant relationship for a decade or more, upon finally breaking away and establishing themselves they would be much more likely to commit to the exclusive use of traditional block numbering in all their designs? I love this place.

  6. Tennessee and Atlanta say hello. Not that it makes the Rams look any better, but they are not the worst. The plastic and gradients are stupid, but at least it's a legible typeface.

  8. Don't hate the name after I took the 14 seconds to Google the local context...but THAT is all they came up with for something as visually interesting as these?!

  10. The simplest thing the Rams could do that would have a sneaky big result in connecting to the traditional set is adding contrasting collars. It's amazing what a difference it makes.

  13. They left their parents at age 14 in search of a better life. Eventually they take up an apprenticeship with a master designer and toil away for years, perfecting their craft. Eventually, when they're good enough, they try to join the local guild and set up their own sports branding design shop. As it has been done since the 1600s on this continent

  14. Not just criminals get tattoos like that man. Can we please stop equating urban black culture with criminals? Like honest to God it's barely a dogwhistle at this point and more like an air-raid siren.

  15. I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt that the sarcasm emoji was left out. But, if not... A four-time Olympic gold medalist, who was shoved under a gargantuan microscope as the main draw of an ill-conceived money grab of an Olympics more in a Petri dish than in a bubble, without any fans or family around to give support, who had to endure sexual assault as a sick right of passage just to be let in the door, who has had her difficulty points manipulated due to her being so much better that they don't want competitors attempting suicidal moves to come anywhere close to matching her, who can risk paralysis or death if she has the absolute smallest iota of something distracting her, who is very much at the upper age limit of a sport that regularly has barely pubescent girls in medal contention, pulling herself out of competition for her mental health is not choking.

  19. It can't be THAT difficult to create a CCSLC post-bot where you input the team and the poster type (classic, new school, design snob) and it outputs the proper complaint...

  23. What has long left many people - myself included - feeling uneasy about the use of sports branding derived from Native American culture is that the names and symbols have, more often than not, been chosen by non-Native Americans. Further, when asked to explain why a particular Native American-themed name or symbol was selected to brand a sports team, the non-Native Americans who have chosen such branding have usually claimed that the names and logos were meant to "honor" Native Americans. How so? Well, the folks doing the choosing would be of the opinion that it was by recognizing such attributes as the bravery in combat, fighting spirit, or physical strength displayed by Native Americans. Eight years ago , I was invited by a friend who works for the Smithsonian Institution to attend a symposium at the National Museum of the American Indian. Said conference dealt with "Racist Stereotypes and Cultural Appropriation in American Sports". I have a notebook filled with the comments that I rapidly wrote down as speaker after speaker - panelists and audience-members alike - shared their thoughts, opinions, and heartfelt convictions that day. Here are a few that stand out to me: "I'm a sports junkie, but I don't think the owners understand that they're not honoring us. 'Honors' like that we don't need." - Robert Holden, National Congress of American Indians "It's part of viewing Indians as a dead culture, a plaything that's essentially become part of the public domain. If something is dead, you can use it however you want." - N. Bruce Duthu, Professor of Native American Studies at Dartmouth College "It's just like Indians have always been depicted in movies - stupid, violent, yet oddly noble in their savagery. Why is it that Native peoples aren't chosen to represent qualities like intelligence, piety, generosity, and love?" - Kevin Gover, Director of the National Museum of the American Indian Many people are tired of Native Americans and the cultural hallmarks of their varied nations being reduced to logos, mascots, and nicknames for something as frivolous as adorning professional, collegiate, and interscholastic athletic teams and their venues. They're fed up with seeing Native Americans "honored" in recognition of their battlefield bravery and warrior spirit. They're sick of the same symbols of Native American culture - arrowheads, spears, and tomahawks - being trotted out again and again in combination with purportedly "inoffensive" names such as Braves and Chiefs, as though the tools of warfare don't carry with them a not-so-subtle message that Native Americans, regardless of their station, are all "noble savages". Or, as Professor Duthu so eloquently put it, Native Americans are over being viewed as "a dead culture, a plaything... part of the public domain" that can be used as sports logos, mascots, nicknames, or "however [non-Native Americans] want."

  25. See, the best thing about the name is that it keeps up the American tradition of people who don't know :censored: about Cleveland telling people from Cleveland all about how much it sucks.

  26. Yeah, I'm not sure that I understand what's supposed to be weird about the Rams' number font aside from the shiny outline texture. It's one of the most legible typefaces in the league and is only slightly stylized. I think that was one of the things that they got right with the update.

  29. I'm a sucker for uniform sets where the only difference between the two jerseys is the torso colour, so I think these look great. They should look even better on the ice with all the gear.

  31. That’s even better than the leak! It’ll be good to see it eventually promoted to road jersey (if it’s possible), while bone gets condemned as a mistake.

  32. Based on the leak I made what we may see. The back shows that it doesn't have the outside tag on the collar. The numbers are the same style as the blue and bone but appear to be flat color, no gradients nor internal piping. I did include the front patch and internal collar tag which may not be there. Again this is just a guess on all this based on what was leaked. I have seen and know as much as all of you on this one. Here is what is may look like with blue pants and no patch on the front.

  35. because it looks awesome. that was a late addition in the process. Somebody suggested it during the final presentation to ownership. Amazing example of how inspiration can strike, and how small details can make a huge difference.

  40. Did this last night in about an hour and a half after they announced my Tampa Bay Lightning would be taking place. It's shaped like the head of an acoustic guitar, with 3 stars angled to match the Tennessee state flag.

  42. Definitely a step in the right direction for the Rams. The bone uniform seems even more out of place now that the white and blue jerseys look to be the same design. It's almost like the bone uniforms were designed as an alternate and at the last minute they thought it was a good idea to make them their primary light jerseys.

  44. Well, thanks for the feedback! Certainly you're right about it getting indistinct at small sizes; might have to think about it some more. Next up is Minnesota: So the Loons, IMO by far the prettiest brand in MLS, have a darn-near perfect logo, and I knew I wasn't gonna top it. However, the real thing does have a single problem—the floating application of the North Star—so I converted the crest to a Minnesota state shape to try to address it. I don't think I'd want it IRL, but hopefully I didn't 100% ruin the logo in the process! I love the wing jersey motif and I don't actually want to see it leave, but I challenged myself to try going without it, so I did a design based on the spotted back of a loon for the home jersey. The away jersey is an aurora borealis-themed jersey in green and black (like the '90s North Stars and Timberwolves.)
