  1. Got to do The Olympia in Detroit, Boston Garden in Boston, The Forum in Montreal, and Madison Square Garden III in NYC (BTW the Rangers currently play in MSG IV).
  2. Looks like the old field, but the numbers are painted differently, and new endzone turf,
  3. 1997 was the year they put new turf down which included a new Meadowlands logo on the 50 yard line. Time stamp approx 4:14 for the updated logo.
  4. The turf was still down in 1996 as well saw a you tube video showing game 1 at the Meadolands vs the Bills.
  5. Yea, I just noticed that. I am about 3 weeks from the end of my High School Football Umpire season (29th in Arizona and 34th over all). I plan to update and work on fields I ahve not completed yet like Baltimore (Stars), Jacksonville (Bulls), Memphis (Showboats), and Oklahoma/Arizona (Outlaws).
  6. Nice to see the Giants and Jets fields added in. The Meadowlands logo was always the "bugger" for me to reproduce. LOL
  7. Not that much, There was some coloring added for the LA Express end zones. And a couple of fields added a USFL logo on "K's" restraining line. That would be about it.
  8. Would be interesting. I enlarged the pic and it's an old style double bar facemask that is being painted on the 50 yard line.
  9. I figured yours would be better than mine. I know teams so for I have seen are... Arizona, Detroit, and MetLife (New York),. Not sure of other areas...yet. Got a lot more to check with on NFL Network. I know a couple of teams have speciality logos, Like The bears, and some traditionally do not add the logo to the field till playoffs (LA Rams possiblly) or after scocer season (Seattle, New England, LA Chargers) Adding Minnesota (opposite orientation on the 20's), and Washington to the list.
  10. Here is my attempt for the NFL100 Logo that is on the 25 yard lines.
  11. I don't have the pic in front of me, but it is confirmed. On telecasts from both Detroit and Arizona. The NFL 100 logo is on the 25 yard line's
  12. Just an FYI. I apologize on the delays on this thread. I just started my annual training for HS Football as a referee. This will be my 29th season in Arizona and 34th over all. I will update periodically as time permits.
  13. This works great.I just love the "Bulls" logo at midfield!
  14. Just a bump and FYI. I am still here and working on the USFL fields. Running into some problems with source material with Orlando, Portland, Jacksonville, and Memphis. I would be very happy!
  15. Yea Jim Plunkett. My brain is a bit addled with training at work. LOL Not to mention I have High School 7 man officials training all this week at Sun Devil Stadium, on the Campus of Arizona State University. Lots of fun!
  16. The latest pic from pre-LA I was able to find, was a Getty photo from a preseason game in 1981. This had Al Davis with QB Steve Plunket warming up in the background. The pic had a clear shot of the outfield at the coliseum, there where no bleachers, so the orientation of the gridiron had to be Home Plate to Center field.
  17. No problem, I did some digging as well. The orientation has changed much over the years. It has been both ways. I believe the orientation for the Invaders was chosen so the stands did not have to move so early in the season which would have killed the outfield grass. And they never expected crowds rivaling what the Raiders had.. I think even the most rabid USFL fans (Michigan, Philly, Chicago, Tampa Bay, and Arizona) never expected a full house anyway.
  18. @jc... Yea this was the orientation of the field before the Raiders moved to LA. After they returned, the current orientation was created. (With "Mt. Davis" in the outfield).
  19. Next up the Oakland Invaders 1983 to 1985 at the Oakalnd Alameda County Coliseum
  20. Here is the finished installed turf for Ford Field. Looks like everything is cut in. Except the wording in the End Zone, NFL logos on the 25 yard lines, and the mid-field logo "Bubbles"
  21. And now, The Arizona Wranglers from Sun Devil Stadium, on the campus of Arizona State University 1983 And 1984
  22. I think with Detroit they are cutting in everything except the wording in the end zones and "Bubbles" in the center of the field. Ford field is used way too much for other football events. Though a field "overlay" might be used at mid field for the logo.
  23. Looks like new field turf going down at Ford Field. The end zones are Honolulu Blue, and the actual field is a lighter shade of green, closer to the color to the turf used in the Pontiac Silverdome.
  24. Now Introducing the Birmingham Stallions! At Historic Legion Field 1983 to 1985
