    Thanks.  Got to say you kind of inspired it when you started adding the walls and stuff to your Super Bowl fields.  I have done about 22 NFL stadiums. Working on the Rose Bowl.  Have a Coors Field and Pepsi Center (or Ball Arena now) that is interchangeable for the Nuggets and the Avalanche. (Yeah, I live in Denver)  It's a long process, about 20-40 hours to do one depending on how symmetrical the stadium is and if I can get a good seating chart and photos.  

    Welcome to the fun! And yes this has been fun. (though a lot of work). 😉

    Something to keep an eye on, that I’ve noticed throughout the playoffs, but the team boxes seemed to have been extended 10 yards in either side. So now instead of a normal teambox extending from the 33 yard lines, they now seem to go from either 23 yard line. It’ll be interesting to see if that will also be true for the Super Bowl, and how they will paint the teambox. 

    Yea, I noticed that too. not numch of a problem on most fields, except the fieldturf cut in ones. But If I remeber correclty those stadiumns added those in after the surfaces were done. I will have to look. 


  4. Update: Slightly modified Fields for the Denver Gold. 

    Early Season 1983 (Games 1 and 2)



    Late seaon 1983 through to 1985



    Heavy Rain Game Week 7. April 9, 1984



  5. Update The Los Angeles Exrpess, After the 1st home game. The field was very marginal.Partly as the team really never made any money, also due to the construction for the 1984 Summer Olympics

    Inaugural game 1983


    Regular Season 1983

    While on the subject of Cardinals, they had the NFL shield at mid-field, most likely because the 49ers are going to be bunkmates for a little while. 

    Yep, not sure if they are putting the team name in the end zones. But they had "Arizona" in both yesterday. nd no red striping on the 20's either.

    I think they did that to cover up markings from game the previous day.


    @SFCOM1 I don't remember that font all that much. Back then we had NFL Primetime and hoped you caught it in the highlights. Not like RedZone and YouTube we have today for research. Well done as always!

    You are correct good Sir, A lot of the fully painted fields in the Cardinals time in Sun Devil Stadium, where to cover up either a Fiesta Bowl, or special ASU game field. And on the font it took me two weeks to work out the font for the end zone. And I have one more field to work on, The Special Christmas field that was Buddy Ryans last game as Cardinals coach.

    Very nice! I've been dreading having to figure out this font, so I'm glad you figured it out.


    Interesting that they kept the 2-point conversion line at the 3 yard line (the college distance of course) for this game. One small detail that can easily be overlooked, so good catch.

    It was supposed to be painted over, I have a little tweeking on this field before it is done, There are 5 diffrent versions of this field over the nearly 15 years before they canged to the current uniforms and alogs. I just updated the field. Removing the "X" for the kick off lines. And the painted extra point line and moved it to the 2 yd .



  9. I believe I finally perfected the Arizona Cardinals font, back in the old Sun Devil Stadium days, So Here is a piviotal game in that stadium Decemeber 28th, 2003. The day the Cardnals' knocked the Minnesota Vikings out of the Playoffs.

    They did paint on a gradient, although I think the way it was done on the field is different from what I have. I copied the jersey gradient, but I think it has too much black compared to the actual field. I'm going to have to go back and re-do the endzones, and the vote logo as well.


    I saw a picture of twitter. It looks like the used small "Boxes" to create the gradient. At our scale, I am not sure if it will be possible. But I wanted to let you know.


  11. Update,


    I found a tape of the lowest attended game in USFL history. Only 4307 showed up in Soldier Field on a rainy Monday May 28,1984. New Jersey Generals vs The Chicago Bltiz. The Blitz, did use an unpainted Wishbone "C" at midfield. And painted the outlines of the wordmark "Chicago" a faint red, in the end zones.


  12. Up next is the 1984 Pittsburgh Maulers! Three Rivers Stadium, Pittsburgh,PA



    Late Season 1984



    Very odd that the team used the painted logo for the early part of the season. And then the second half no logo at all.
