  1. One big plus i’ve noticed is the games seem to be getting better. A lot more completions and touchdowns. But that could just be from Hackenberg getting benched and Gilbert setting up to be MVP.

     

    also sidenote: I wanted to play with the app during Salt Lake’s game, and the profile/score I had made was wiped clean. Then when I tried again during Orlando’s game it was back to 0. Very odd.

    The colors are fine, the shape is whatever. I don't immediately see a sound wave, or much of a reason to break the N in that way. The SC seems like an afterthought. I think my biggest gripe is that there's so much negative space here. The use of space is god awful with the vast emptiness under the text(which isn't evenly spaced out vertically). Such a downgrade.

    Honestly the¬†only southern¬†city¬†that came to mind¬†was Little Rock, Arkansas. Perhaps? ūüėē

    A few weeks ago, I did some research because I wanted to know the towns that had stadiums with suitable capacity, and would be different from other spring leagues. So that would eliminate:

     

    XFL - St. Louis (Seriously, the other 7 all have NFL teams)

    Freedom Football League - Oakland, Portland, Connecticut, and OKC(which other than the AAA park, I have no idea where they'd play)

    American Patriot League - Daytona, Mobile, Sacramento, Shreveport, Canton

     

    The markets I found with stadiums and no pro football teams as tenants are:

    Little Rock, Jackson, El Paso, Ft. Worth, Louisville, Richmond, Norfolk, Albuquerque, Boise, Omaha, Raleigh, Austin, Boise

     

    Now, I don't imagine this league expands any time soon. Watering down your player pool while other leagues pop up seems like an awful idea. It is a fun thinking activity though. I'd venture to say the AAF has the strongest group of cities.

     

    I think it's too early to judge the attendances the other day. After lighting up the scoreboard Sunday, I've seen so many people say the Hotshots could beat the Cardinals. It's not true, but that momentum of competent football is a good thing. If they can crush Memphis and beat Salt Lake again in Utah, I'd expect a much larger crowd to turn up at Sun Devil Stadium. The league more than doubled the amount of twitter followers over the last weekend to where I think people are actually going to make plans to go to games. Just my 2 cents!

    The attendance for the next Arizona home game is going to be interesting seeing as how spring training is coming up soon. 

    Good point. I was thinking about the comment earlier about ‚Äúif Arizona was prime time Saturday people would talk about the attendance‚ÄĚ. But now I‚Äôm realizing it was a¬†school night, which had to have dampened the crowd on campus.


  5. Orlando and Atlanta started extremely choppy, but seemed to have settled.

     

    First points - Younghoe Koo FG for Atlanta

    touchdown - Garrett Gilbert to Jalin Marshall. Called incomplete and was overturned.

    Interception - Orlando jumps route setting up a short drive that just got capped off with a touchdown.


  6. Wanted to see the progress of the other hosting team's stadiums

     

    San Antonio will have their crest at the 50, but not sure if the endzone is painted red or left green. Looks like the word mark is down though.

    This was posted a few days ago from a Sun Devils coach, and that's the most recent I could find. However, they might have done stuff since then.

    P.S. This will seem really weird, but you're the reason I'm pursuing a degree in geography. Seeing that you were studying geography in one of your bios a few years back opened my eyes to pursuing a degree in it. Seems weird, but it was just some weird tidbit that stuck with me and ultimately affected my life path.

    Wow! That’s so cool! I hope you’re enjoying it!

     

    yesterday I played around a little with the template. Currently the lines are 2px thick, I tried 4, 6, and 8 to compromise. 8 is pretty close to the proportions of the last one, but I think maybe halfway is a good compromise.

     

    or since they’re strokes still, the thickness is up to you!


  8. I've thought a lot about this announcement since the massive chunk of NASCAR people aren't taking the move well. I'm very much pro "have a fun brand to stand out from the crowd" movement Minor League Baseball has done, but this seems like a different situation somehow.


    I think the biggest thing is that there's a legitimate emotional connection to the actual name. I don't believe there was this big of outrage when the Suns became the Jumbo Shrimp because Suns is awfully generic. Yes people didn't want the change, but this seems almost universally despised. There's plenty of Suns, but only one Intimidators. Another team I could imagine having this much rebrand backlash is the Isotopes. Both are known for their name, not their logos. More than something traditional like the Sea Wolves, Bay Bears, or whatever.

     

    But with the Isotopes, they're are in the top 20 MiLB merchandise sales so there's no real reason to move on. Kannapolis is a different story. The Intimidators current branding is really sloppy. I think the best case scenario is keeping the Intimidator name(which might happen judging from the licking they got on social media) and refreshing the entire set a-la Tennessee Smokies.

     

    Also fwiw, i know people would have a fit if a team became the Piedmont Boll Weevils around now¬†ūüėĀ


  9. Interesting that Thickness keeps coming up, i'll try out a little thicker lines later today. That means the collars will have a little less real estate, but if it's what the fans want!

    I'm hopefully going to finish a backside, pants, and socks soon and release some stuff to a select trial group. Let me know if you're wanting to join!


    Patched are a fine idea I guess, wouldn't be too hard to throw on the template.
