  1. I'm surprised it hasn't been put up yet. Chris Creamer breaking the news about the new Alouettes logo... Reposted by the CFL on their Facebook page. I think it's pretty sweet, and huge upgrade from the old angry bird logo, which I always hated. The downside is that apparently it's going to be worn on the top of the helmet.
  2. It appears the Montreal Alouettes are about to launch a complete re-brand with new uniforms, helmet and logo... Montreal Alouettes tease potential jersey launch
  3. Man, that thing is freakishly monstrous. I guess they're assuming they're not going win enough Cups which might cause them to run out of room...
  4. If you want to include the CFL, it's up to 9. Johnny Manziel (Hamilton/Montreal), started 8 games for Cleveland 2014-2015
  5. Yeah, but I thought that meant they were going to go back to their regular helmet logo rather than this very simplified, de-birded, uni-colour version. After this year, are they going to keep it as their regular look, or go back once again to the logo they had last year?
  6. This is not going to be their permanent logo is it?
  7. Cinderella Man tops my list (and not because I worked on it.) Bend it Like Beckham (and I hate soccer, but great story and major props for avoiding sports movie cliches.) Bull Durham The Natural Slap Shot And one television series" Playmakers (and not because I worked on this either, and ESPN should be ashamed of themselves for cancelling it...)
  8. I find it interesting that the three teams that have announced their relocation to Los Angeles have all at some point in their franchise history called that city home. For those that actually follow the NFL, what are the chances that three will actually relocate there? As a huge fan of Blade Runner, I approve of this gif....
  9. Ironically, I loved CFNY, but never liked Rush...
  10. That is the worst reason to do anything. Doing something done badly for 90 years doesn't mean you should continue doing it. A good logo should be graphical representation not a literal statement as is the case with the leafs logo, especially with the unnecessary redundancy of it being a maple leaf and having the words Maple Leafs inside of it (as if the fact that it's a maple leaf logo wasn't enough of a clue.) Either go blank, or have the letter T in the middle representing Toronto, doesn't needed to be anymore complex than that.
  11. Obviously they've been sitting on this for a while since it's now clear that next year's Grey Cup logo is modelled after new CFL logo....
  12. Found the inspiration for it...
  13. I seriously had no inkling that this was even in the pipeline, but now that I've had a chance to digest this after the horror of seeing this show up on my Facebook news feed.... This commits the greatest sin of design imaginable, it's dull and boring, made worse when it stands next the boldness of the previous logo. I could have come up with this using MS Paint. It's like something you would slap on a jar of mayonnaise. You don't want to be known as the mayonnaise of sports leagues. If they wanted to dull it down a bit, they could have gone with a simple shield logo like the NFL, NHL and MLS. They could have gone with a version of what the CFLPA uses which would be a black and red version of what MLB and the NBA uses. As someone who is passionate about the CFL, I'm utterly horrified...
  14. #WWMO? Apparently clip-art....
  15. Yeah, what I woke up to this morning....
  16. I would have to disagree, the old logo was a standard cliche of a minor hockey logo (city name in small font, nickname in large font, mascot bursting over top of it.) Here it creates a more pleasing shape that will make it easier to identify, sort of like an offset nested roundel. It also simplifies the fish design and removes the Steelheads name. It's a big step up.
  17. I think that's actually a game featuring Guelph and what looks like Western. Nash61 had already posted a pic of an actual game there showing Hamilton in their home blacks against the checkerboard end zone of Guelph. However I have a better example.... It's still an awesome gif...
  18. I wasn't able to find the pictures I was looking for--I didn't just want to post any old picture for the sake of it. Oh I appreciate that. It's funny that I was able to find more pictures related to the Tiger-Cats win in 1972 than I could the Argonauts win in 1991. But then again 90% of the pics in this thread are random sport pics of a player that person likes.
  19. Thank you Rod Black.... In addition to your example, The Tiger-Cats also played three games at McMaster when the construction of THF ran late... And we might get another one later this year. If the Toronto Blue Jays make the playoffs, then the Toronto Argonauts might be playing their home game(s) at Tim Hortons Field.
  20. I saw examples like this online, but it's still not "The Moment"....stupid internet....
  21. And here I was expecting something really bad, like original Phoenix Coyotes bad, but this has a special charm that people are missing. I think having a giant griffin destroying Grand Rapids is a pretty cool idea...
  22. Oooo, that's a good one, but I couldn't find an example online (apart from one tiny avatar sized one) that shows his outstretched hands and the beer can fizzing behind him... But I did remember another one.... 1972 Angelo Mosca's last game.... There are a lot of Mosca pictures over the years, '63 Grey Cup hit on Flemming, his kiss with Garney Henley with the Grey Cup after that same '72 game, his wrestling career, the fight with Joe Kapp recently, but the picture above is what best exemplifies the theme of this thread.
