  1. Agree 1,000% I actually found the very same official logo of theirs in a search and it was freaking clip art. Not similar but the same logo (minus the football). It was weak and any agressive look to it had been neutered.
  2. I really feel mixed over the unveiling. I think for the most part, the names are good...my only complaints being "Battle" added to Hawks and the overused Wildcats name. 1. Guardians: love the logo even if it looks like an Egyptian lion and not a gargoyle. Colors are good. 2. BattleHawks: love the logo and colors. 3. Renegades: wow, a western masked man. Maybe the 1000th ever done. Logo is okay but seems to miss something. Good color scheme. Decent name. 4. Defenders: Very conservative almost throwback feel to it. Not bad but not great as it's solidly done. Given the current political climate, I'm surprised at the use of red and white...reminds me of hats we've seen in the news the last few years. 5. Dragons: Love the name. 0 points for the UAB logo infringement. Colors are okay. 6. Roughnecks: Great name but I a Houston Oilers logo modified in an attempt to rip it off. The logo is not bad, but it's a closer copyright infringement than the original Jaguars logo. My only points are for the name. 7. Vipers: Awesome name but the primary logo is a weak secondary at best. Colors are good. Love wordmark. I feel like the potential of this identity was completely left behind. Feels mailed in...more like a farm arena league with a budget of $5 for marketing. 8. Wildcats: Dumb name. Dumber logo. I like the color combo but couldn't they have at least tried to have an actual wildcat logo? The L and A are not even the same style font. Did someone's awesome proposed logo get eaten by the dog and the leftovers were taped together? Even the secondary claw logo is unoriginal...hello, early Orlando Predators. This is the only outright fail. At least we have all 8 teams with plural names. Does anyone know who the designer was?
  3. Like I told my wife: maybe it's a shark. Maybe a dolphins. Or a sailboat. It's a mystery.
  4. They're doing exactly as the AAF did as far as a partial-logo tease, although IIRC, the AAF did it over 2 days.
  5. Yeah, I wanted to scream after putting mine out there...had no idea of their logo or color scheme. Just...#*&@! LOL But, I already have an idea for a replacement.
  6. Oooo-kay. That was an interesting response.
  7. The XFL has delayed launching their team names and logos, allowing enough time for me to work on my own idea in my spare time. I've tried to keep somewhat true to the original XFL with only one animal name. Anyway C&C welcome as always. EDIT: Here is the replacement for the Washington Sentinels. "Warlords" was one of 2 names the XFL had a copyright on in 2001 but didn't go with the name. There was much discussion about the logo on the helmet probably being hard to read from a distance. I chose black for the helmet to be consistent with it's usage on fatigues. Helmet would be matte, black jersey and tan as a trim color.
  8. The home uniform looks like they were copying the Giants' look at the time. The road uni is really nice. Dated, but nice.
  9. Hmm. Too busy, But, as I'm looking at this, I'm curious how it would look if you drew a straight line across from underarm to underarm, leaving the panel above with stripes and the panel below black with the numbers. And remove the tiger head.
  10. For Nike, this isn't bad. My biggest gripe is the helmet shine...would look better in matte finish or maybe satin finish, IMHO
  11. Atlanta is a mess from top to bottom. Coaching staff issues aside, the logo is epic inconsistency: There's the first logo of gold crown and white bar, the alternate seen only on certain items with an "A" and then the helmet where the logo's all-gold without the white bar. It's like they can't decide which they want to run with.
  12. Bottom center. Wow...I was saying Atlanta's logo looked unfinished like it was missing something and find something very on a site's clipart. It just seems lazy.
  13. No...my wife was trying to buy a tshirt and the size options were messing up. A number of people complained about the site not working right and then it was taken down for repairs. I don't think one team's possible problem would cause all teams to cease and desist. There's not even a link to their shop today.
  14. I am underwhelmed with most of these, and I'm really behind the AAF. Orlando is really nice and while Memphis name is lazy, I do like the logo....although, the jet will be facing different directions on the helmet to keep the E looking like an E. Someone mamaged to get their hands on the San Antonio logo and it is the one I thought it would be with the sword. Atlanta's FB page is in full meltdown over purple being used...torches and pitchforks. I like it...I don't get the hate. The logo really, really bugs me...it looks unfinished like it had potential left behind on the drawing board. Birmingham loves the name but most with it was Ironmen, Ironhorses, Ironwhatever and I agree. Monochrome logo is boring. So many good names available and I just feel like most unveiled so far are blah.
