  1. Top right for sure. I think the non-shaded versions would be easier to make pop on actual attire, and the black outline does wonders.
  2. This is really impressive stuff - you have definitely done everything you can to give it a "big league" feel - congrats and keep it up!
  3. With the Rockies, I LIKE the new script, but then go all the way with it. I think the script R is pretty strong for a cap logo myself, so trash the old CR lettering altogether and go cursive, the way the Dodgers and Royals do, if that's how you want the Rockies to be. Also, darken the gray if black is going to go - I always though their silver/gray wasn't strong enough, especially near their white. I think the yellow may have been the wrong color to drop for the Marlins. I get a Rangers vibe as much as I get an Expos one from your current concept. I'd either go blue/yellow or red-orange/yellow, as both would be fairly unique MLB colors and capture the vibrancy of Miami. And while I love tri-color caps, I don't know if they work for an ultra-modern logo like Miami's. Good start, but I would cut each identity down to a home/road and build your alternates off that. Also, the green background for the presentatiopn is making my eyes bleed, but that is no criticism on your concepts. Keep it going!
  4. The home is great! Awesome tweak to a good jersey. The road could benefit from some black trim so make it sharper, and I think some black outlines to "COLORADO" on the alt would tie that jersey together more. Awesome start here!
  5. I can't swear to it, but I think the black stroke on the home uni is thinner than the white stroke on the road and alt. The road and alt pop much better because black and red virtually never touch. I would either make the black stroke on the numbers/nob/diamonds on the home as thick as the white stroke on the other two, OR, if it is already as thick and I am going nuts, make it thicker anyway. Other than that - I love it! The red jersey is beautiful.
  6. I would drop the football altogether. The dolphin needs more definition, for sure. Also, someting needs to go in the white space below the dolphin. Even a stylized "M" that fit into some of the other "sawblades" would fill the void. Awesome start - I feel like right now this logo would work well if the Dolphins a part of an energy conservation program - but keep at it, no reason it can't become a primary.
  7. Ok... Brooklyn Knights doesn't sound too bad anymore... No it doesn't. "The New York Knicks beat the New Yorkers"... just sounds like Amare started going beserk on some fans.
  8. You're right, I forgot all about that. Christmas 2008. And like the Sonics in '07, it is the last season the Mavs had a green jersey. Coincidence, I guess. Maybe green jerseys go to Portland on Christmas to die. Is that Greg Oden sighting?!?! He's harder to see in action that Ol' Saint Nick himself! That's Christmas cheer i can get behind! I swear... even in the pic, he looks like he's just had both legs fractured.
  9. Rather than just quotes, like, 8 of the last 13 posts, I'll add this: I'm sure the initial reaction is to say: ZOMG Phillies will be beasts from now on. I actually think it's the opposite. I think the Phillies' clock just started ticking. Oh don't get me wrong, it's going to suck for me to be a Mets fan, a little more than it does. While I agree that you can't simply crown the Phillies as champs before you play a game, 1)There's always going to be talk like that before the season, it's sports and 2) You can definitely say they're going to win a hefty amount of games. Let's not forget that while you NEED offense over the course of the season, great pitching changes exactly how much offense you need. The Phillies posted a +132 run-differential, tops in the NL and third in the majors. They scored 772 runs - will that drop without Werth? Likely. But the Phillies ranked 4th in the NL in Runs Against - a standing which I have a hard time believing won't be first, second or third this year. Point is, they only need to make the playoffs, and then I'd want no part of them, diminished offense or not. Look no further than the 2009 Giants. They scored 80 runs fewer than Philly, but gave up 60 fewer also. That only led them to a division title and a WS championship, but whatever. All I'm saying is that I can't look at the Philly offense and seriously say that will undermine them. So why do I open it so negatively? I give the FO credit for opening up the wallet, and Cliff Lee credit for taking a lot less money to play somewhere he legitmately wants to. But there's a time limit here. It's the last year for Jimmy Rollins, for Cole Hamels, for Raul Ibanez, for Ryan Madson, for Roy Oswalt(disregarding a 2012 club option), for Brad Lidge(same). With their payroll now rising to $146 million, the time is 2011. I know on paper, they have Halladay and Lee together through 2013, at least. I get it. But everyone needs to come together and deliver a World Series this year, because: 1. If all of those guys bounce back or improve on 2010's performances(but no World Series), bringing all of them back would be expensive and unlikely. 2. If they don't bounce back, you'd part ways with some for good: Rollins, Madson, etc. The point is, either it will get expensive to bring them back OR the Phillies will choose not to bring them back. Either way, you'll be replacing them with younger, cheaper talent. Which is great, except you start the process of rebuilding the clubhouse vibe. Look no further than the Yankees: As guys from the dynasty teams retired or left, all the money in the world couldn't bring back the chemistry until Cashman finally struck the right chord with Texeria, C.C., Swisher and A.J. Win the World Series this year, and those guys, should they still be producing, may come back at a reduced rate to keep it going, or it will attract other guys with team-first attitudes that want to win. Lose it, and those guys may seek greener(money-wise) pastures. I truly believe that while the Phils will ALWAYS be good with their FO as it is now, this year just became a huge pressure-cooker for them. Win the Series, and ZOMG they will be beasts for a good while. Lose it, and I'm sorry, they continue on their path to being the 2001-2008 Yankees.
  10. Just since last year. I don't have any confirmation that it's going to continue, it may be coincidental that the NBA scheduled them on Christmas Day again this year. I hope it does. Didn't the knicks wear these in St. Patricks day as well? Yes, they wear them around (if not on) every St. Patrick's Day. Yep, if I implied it was a Christmas uniform, I apologize. Just the Knicks using the St. Pat's uniform for Christmas.
  11. Not a Christmas-themed uniform per se, but the Knicks started what I think is a new tradition last year. On Christmas Day, they wore their green jerseys, and Miami wore their red. I would imagine it'll be the same deal this year, home to Chicago on Christmas Day. I think it's kinda cool.
  12. I knew that they have to decide the jerseys, didn't know about their announcement(shame, I know). But did you mean to see if the Eagles decide to wear WHITE now the Cowboys would have to approve the change? That's the only way those statements all add up.
  13. The Eagles haven't done that in a long time. They played Dallas for a playoff spot in week 17 two years ago and wore green, so I would expect the same. I guess it's a matter of perception that it's been a long time, they did it in 2007 and 2006 for sure, though I'll be first to admit I didn't see the '08 and '09 games in Philly. Too bad, would have been nice to see,
  14. I'd be on board with almost any combo other than mono-red, but according to the Texans site, mono-red is what we're getting: http://www.houstontexans.com/gameday/uniform-combinations.html Bucs Pewter/White/Pewter and Redskins Burdgundy/Burgundy/Gold could be a game of the week if those are the combos they go with. BTW, does not apply for this week but The Eagles have a habit of sometimes wearng white at home when the Cowboys visit(though maybe not this late io\n the year) - is there a chance we may just see those navy Cowboys jerseys in Week 17?
