    Glad to see you’re already enjoying it, and to tell the truth, the main reason I picked the Magpies was because FS1 seemed to favor them when deciding what games to televise, and the seemed to do pretty good every time I saw them in action anyway.

     

    BRISBANE LIONS

    The Lions have an interesting story, reflected in their uniforms. Formed in 1996 from a merger of two struggling clubs, the Brisbane Bears and Fitzroy FC aka the Lions, the Brisbane Lions' whole identity is seen to be a fusion of elements from Fitzroy and the Bears. Though they take the maroon color from the Bears, they will play in a uniform similar to their home colors but with red in place of maroon when playing in a Victorian stadium, to resemble the jumpers they wore as the Fitzroy Lions.

     

    Some controversy arose in the late 00s when the Brisbane decided they would get a new logo, along with a revamped lion on their jerseys. The new lion, nicknamed the "paddlepop lion," proved unpopular, and three years later was replaced with the old Fitzroy Lion, where it remains to this day. For my concept, I made an attempt to modernize the lion with a little more restraint, a combination of sorts of the old cat and the new. Here’s a closer look...

    That’s about everything. Let me know what you think.

    the fitzroy fans would be in an uproar, especially because it HAS to be the fitzroy lion according to the merger agreement. changing it in any way breaks it

    Footy Headlines just posted this mockup of what they say is Atlanta’s new primary:

    Not a fan of this at all if it truly is representative of the real thing. 

    it's so crappy it's unbelievable

    ^ I assumed that halved RB Salzburg kit is taking its design cues from the lightning motif that Nike's been using everywhere? It does look odd with the logo covering up the jagged part, though. (Otherwise I kinda like a diagonal-ish halves design)

    red bull cans maybe?

    We have had one without the other for a very long time. They already have enough ads everywhere else. They should not be putting ads on the uniforms too. I think it is greed and I do not trust the NHL to get rid of them once things return to some type of normal again. 

    actually... with equipment manufacturer logos on helmets and stuff. we've had sponsor logos for years. the equipment companies pay the nhl to have their logo on stuff... they already HAD ads on the uniforms.. people are jsut losing their crap over other sponsors being put on the helmets for one season as a make good for their contracts that didnt get fufilled  cause of the pandemic. the sky is not falling, chicken little. the NHL is not gonna turn into europe

    They have made north of a billion dollars in expansion fees in the past few years and they boast about their billions in annual revenues every year. I think they can afford to keep ads off their uniforms.

    by this logic, there shouldnt be ads on the dasher boards surriounding the rink or on the ice, and yet there are. cant have one without the other

    Bauer is a hockey company and they actually make, Tim Horton's and Viagra aren't and have nothing to do with hockey or hockey equipment manufacturing. Are you being dense on purpose or you're just playing devil's advocate cause you're bored?

    it's ALL advertising. i am not being dense man. if you are against tim hortons being on a small space on a helmet, as is bauer or ccm, and those might actually be BIGGER, and you arernt against equipm,ent makers advertising on stuff. then YOU are dense my guy

    It's not the same thing at all and you know it

    but it is my dude. bauer ccm etc are companies who have their branding on equipment. when you think about it, they're advertising in every level of the sport... yet people complain when ads for other companies than equipment suppliars show up on equipment. it wont go further than this season most likely NHL uniforms wont look like europ[[ean league uniforms, the sky is not falling chicken little.

    People complain about those all the time on here, what's your point?

     

    And while still not great, it's obviously different as they actually had a hand in the equipment, rather than slapping an ad on for only that purpose. They have advertising plastered all over everything in American sports, but the uniform used to be the only "pure" thing we had. That's being chipped away and people are justified in saying "this sucks."

    my point is we already get ads, the teams already work with these companies that are now on the helmet, which have had sponsors on them for DECADES... and just NOW people are complaining...

    Next the team is Washington (Formerly (Washington Football Team)) Football Team. Of course that putrid name could not stay for my redesign so I went with something that should have done in the first place, the Washington Warriors. I've retained some elements of the Native American theme as I believe its part of the team identity but I did not go over board with the logo. I simply used the older spear logo while retaining the current color scheme. If any one has either comments or critiques feel free to let me know.

    either have helmet stripes or the spear, i think both would look completely weird

    Hey Kodrinsky! Thanks as always for your efforts - really, really appreciated.

     

    Just curious about the bubble courts for the 2019-20 season.

     

    I thought that teams had their respective logos on their "home" floors, or did that not happen until the playoffs actually began? Were the bubble teams playing on the generic courts you've posted here for the duration of the seeding games?

     

    Regardless, presumably you'll release the team logo versions as well in the near future?

    i think those were CGI'd on

    We're really starting to stretch the use of the fire emoji pretty thin.

     

     

    That was an especially confusing name considering that the resort has its own venue for shows. I was staying there with some friends, and one of them got excited about a concert that was happening one of the nights. Then we realized the show was at the arena downtown named after the resort, not at the actual resort.

    boston gets a pass because it's based on their championship banners, imho
