  1. One of the regulars where my friend bartends sells merch at the Bradley Center. Yesterday, they apparently stocked a shirt with the one of the Bucks' new logos. No word on whether or not it's the primary, but here's what they described: -Roundel featuring a Buck that looks similar to the current one, but "angrier." -Green & Cream... no other colors. -Reminded them of something a microbrewery would use. They also said they didn't personally care for the logo, but didn't think it was bad.
  2. A google image search for "Green Bay skyline" pulled this up. Not quite as impressive as Chicago or Minneapolis, but perhaps something along these lines?
  3. I'm not selling us short by a long shot. I tried to edit my post to add that if anyone could bring the NHL here, specifically relieving them of the Coyotes Quagmire, it would be Lazry and Edens. They are used to taking losses and turning profits. With the arena situation and Wiscos love of hockey it would be win win. If they owned both clubs and had 100% controlling interest in the arena, maybe taxpayers wouldn't have to foot too much of a bill, save for a luxury/travel tax. It can be done, YES! the logistics would all have to align. The problem would then be........Where do the Admirals go? Green Bay would be the easiest, most obvious solution. Have them affiliate with the Milwaukee team to create another Milwaukee-Fox Valley connection like the Brewers and Timber Rattlers.
  4. Agreed. That's why you have to put on it to attract Final Fours and other large indoor events. That's why Cleveland really screwed up not putting a dome on the Browns Stadium. Yeah, because when I think of a great site for really big events with global exposure, Cleveland comes immediately to mind... It's no worse than Indianapolis and San Antonio, which are to the Final Four what Miami and New Orleans are to the Super Bowl.
  5. If they go with Barracudas, the team has to come out to this song. This is not negotiable.
  6. The only reason this is acceptable is because you used the creamsicle Bucs. If you'd used the modern Bucs, it may have sent me into a murderous rage... and I'm only half joking. That said, this turned out to be pretty cool.
  7. He noted that they wouldn't work well on TV. Part of the realism: there will be some bad decisions made. You know what though, he's right. That mistake would be too obvious. Here's an update. Your original concept was only used for a couple games and was changed because of TV viewers' complanints.... a totally plausible move in the 60s.
  8. Looking at the mock up here, I feel like there are two different teams going on here. The hat (which is beautiful) doesn't match up with the home jersey. It's like they are the Mariners farm club at home (minus the cap), half of a Mariners affiliate on the road (the navy with teal names and navy with red numbers don't work for me) and then the classic Rainiers in the alternate and BP jersey. Not sure what that BP hat is, but looks more appropriate for a team with a gold rush miner type theme. I wish they had either gone with full Mariners theme for home and road then the red alternate or all red and white (and navy too, if need be). As an M's fan, I would love to see a navy hat with a silver "R" outlined in teal if they are trying to do the Mariners thing. Also, looking at the team shop, I don't think the hats they have are the 2015 game hats. They have had multiple styles of the "R" hat online for a year or so now (and all their cool throwbacks). Also the way the 2015 BP hat is listed makes me think none of the "R" hats are Poly 5950s but rather wool customs they've had for a bit now. I agree... this would look much better in Mariners colors. I don't always like when minor league clubs piggyback off their parent clubs' identity, but Tacoma is still the same metro area and the Rainiers name is an homage to the classic Seattle PCL club. At most, I'd want an alt with the classic colors, but just an alt.
  9. It was Robbman's Alternate History thread. It was one of the best threads in the concepts forums that I have seen. And then that twatbag noob had to piss him off so much that we never got to see him finish.
  10. That's his intrepretation of all the Cowboys mismatched colors. Just goes to show how ridiculous the Cowboys fustercluck of an identity really is.
  11. Your numbers need an outline on that home jersey. It would be hell trying to watch those uniforms on TV... especially back then.
  12. And since the Diamondbacks switched, they could own purple in baseball, which doesn't even have so much as a purple and white team. Interesting... your descriptions actually make me like the creamsicles more. Chintzy 70s dive bar works for central/western Florida.
  13. Every single one of your NFC West concepts is a massive upgrade over what the team is using now. Well done!
  14. These are three of my favorites. Minnesota was also home to one more of mine...
  15. Here he is as a Texan Yea, I probably should've posted these too, but I got lazy. In order to atone, I'll raise you Ahman Green, Omaha Knighthawk.
  16. Wouldn't this look so much better than what they have today? No it wouldn't. Among other reasons, the black is way out of place. Probably better for concepts since it ain't happening for '15 Maybe it's because the Eagles looked like this when I started following the NFL, but the black doesn't look so out of place to me. Even then, the black could be easily replaced by a darker grey and still have the same effect.
  17. I'm all for Milwaukee teams wearing cream, but I don't think it'd look good with lime green, which is what most Bucks fans want.
  18. When Time Warner took over, they axed everything on the Turner stations that marked them as a product of the Deep South (which is why they were so quick to get rid of WCW, amongst other things). I think that was also around the time when TBS got an over the air broadcast affiliate in NYC.
  19. I want graphics to be more of a representation of the DC artwork instead of Hollywood's interpretation. I went with the card theme because psychos aren't dealing with a full deck. Pardon the pun. Fair enough, but then I would try to simplify the card or the helmet design itself. Right now, you have way too much going on.
  20. I don't like the card on the helmet, but I can't think of what else you might try. Perhaps something like this? The Heath Ledger makeup is as iconic as anything else having to do with The Joker at this point. As far as the name, Arkham Psychos fits the theme of what you're doing here.
  21. I like your idea for the Lions a lot more than I thought I would. Not feeling the Packers' pants though... I think your striping pattern would remind most of us fans of the horrible Forrest Gregg era.
  22. EDIT: Certain matchups would be ok. But then you'd have plenty of matchups that look terrible, even with the clash. Would the Bills wear red jerseys? Would the Jets wear black? The Saints in all gold vs. the Panthers in black would look pretty bad, and ultimately amateurish. A lot of these alternate colors would be ugly. Ehhh.... I think that might actually look pretty good if executed correctly.
