  1. I had hoped any potential crest would utilize the Pine Tree which was a major symbol for New England in the colonial era. I don't hate it but there's a lot about it that annoys me. The slash through the R seems forced and takes away from the R itself. Using a design that's more about "Bunting" rather than any sort of seal or stamp design from the era is an odd choice to me. I love the flag logo as it's very unique among MLS badges now even if it is painfully 90s but can acknowledge that an update is necessary. But i feel this badge needs a LOT more refinement before being trotted out. As someone mentioned earlier they shouldn't settle for "fine" but should excel to be one of the strongest badges in the league.
  2. Just as the title says. The Red Claws have been rebranded as the Maine Celtics https://www.wmtw.com/article/maine-red-claws-change-name-to-maine-celtics/36519342# Old logo for comparison Edit: Didn’t see it was being shown in the main NBA thread. Mods please delete if you feel it’s redundant from the MegaThread
  3. now it just looks like someone who forgets the capital of South Carolina. Is it Columbia, SC or Columbus, SC? awful awful choice by the new ownership. looks like #SavetheCrew will be trending once again to get the name back
  4. I'm shocked that the Sox being one of the more traditional teams out there when it comes to their home uniforms have signed up for this. Let alone be the first team to debut them. I get the tie-in to the Marathon, but holy crap it's one event in an unassociated sport. It doesn't define the city in the least. Hell the city and area have so much to pull from that helped make Boston what it is! How about the ACTUAL reason we have Patriot's Day? It's such an embarrassment. The stencil wordmark looks nothing like the Finish line, so no idea where they're pulling that out of. The numbers on the back are a completely different, swirly font that has a drop shadow. The only actual Boston thing is the use of 617 on the runner bib patch and that looks like an afterthought. I can't believe I finally get to say this: As a fan, I'm not a fan. And I'm aware this isn't replacing their full-time jerseys but we all know this is a slippery slope. And people will inevitably buy them with the inaccurate thinking that these are meant to honor the victims of the Marathon Bombing (they aren't, that's what the home whites with "Boston" on them are for) and, as stated before, that will give the justification to Nike that this is a good idea. Absolutely atrocious.
  5. Looks like they’ve already announced two new teams: Frankfurt Galaxy Hamburg Sea Devils https://twitter.com/SeaDevilsHH?s=20 https://www.sportspromedia.com/news/european-league-of-football-teams-hamburg-sea-devils-frankfurt-galaxy-nfl one article mentioned there’s still a team in Berlin. Could mean the return of the Berlin Thunder as well
  6. Oh crap I may have guessed something right? Neat
  7. Guess my only question about it is: are the letters transparent or reflective? If reflective why do we see the trophy through the L. if transparent, how do we see the palm trees?
  8. apparently the cyan/magenta version is a mockup done on reddit. does anyone have this year's program? usually it's near the end
  9. https://www.mlb.com/press-release/calfee-park-baseball-inc-debuts-new-appalachian-league-team-name The excitement surrounding the rebranding of Pulaski’s baseball franchise culminated today with the unveiling of the organization’s new name: The Pulaski River Turtles. With a nod to its New River Valley heritage, the inspiration behind the River Turtles name was a renewed commitment to Calfee Park’s family-friendly culture. “When considering the name, we weighed feedback from the local baseball community, Calfee Park’s history, and our location in the New River Valley,” says general manager JW Martin. “After thoughtful consideration, we wanted a brand that represents what our ballpark is really all about. We have a welcoming, fun, family environment that puts smiles on faces. We think this brand captures that.”
  10. Something tells me we’re gonna get these numbers
  11. Love that they're remembering their AAFC championships too. Solid retro anniversary logo
  12. I don't get the call for the Texans playing dressup as the Oilers. With so much issues and complaining about the bass ackwards revisionist history that the NBA does, why would the Texans get an exception? The Texans are taking their colors from the Texas flag. the bull logo emulates the design with the solid blue and red/white. changing the Deep Steel Blue to the Oiler blue would remove that aspect of it. Houston's team is now the Texans. The Oilers left. Should the identity have stayed in Houston? Probably. But the people there also just accepted the move like so many others before had. Which is weird as the Browns had left the year prior and there was enough of an uproar from fans in Cleveland to retain the Browns identity/history/colors/etc.
  13. Don't forget the Titans mascot for most of their time was T-Rac.
  14. My goodness the internet has ruined me. That dot on the “r” resembling the head of a stick figure using the rest of the “r” and the open “o” as a body creates an unfortunate secondary picture there that I’m just not going to describe any further. it’s very sleek and does try to update the current signature one, but personally it feels really dated and had they ever changed to it, I feel like they would’ve returned to the Classic signature during any of the retro revivals we’ve had.
