  1. Not a huge fan of the color scheme or uniforms for Broncos, but that alternate logo is excellent. Great way to bring back the D without the awkwardness of a horse being worked in. Change the mane back to orange and it's a winner.
  2. The second button literally makes or breaks the shirt. Look at it, its too high, its in no-mans-land. You look like you live with your mother!
  3. Not a fan of an orange helmet for the Broncos. A little too much orange for my liking. I would like so see some version of the blue-sleeved jerseys come back, though. With a blue helmet it could look really sharp, IMO.
  4. Glad to see this back, Mike! Digging what you've done with Pikes Peak. The crescent shapes stands are a unique look, and the logo is really sharp. And I like the heavy use of purple - different but I think it would look nice.
  5. It said a couple paragraphs earlier that the color rush jerseys will not be a throwback. My guess is an all blue or all black version of their current look.
  6. OKC looks wonderful. Love the basketball seams you worked into the cloud. That should be their primary logo yesterday.
  7. Love those marks for the Thunder, but as noted neither is really primary-worthy. Maybe try taking the Thunder wordmark and adding a light blue/navy storm cloud above it. The roundness of the cloud and angularity of the wordmark would pair nicely, IMO.
  8. This is a really nice concept, and definitely gives off a Miami vibe IMO. I will say I prefer your first update to the sea turtle/palm tree. The one-color rendering gives the logo some much needed simplicity with the three strokes around the shield, and it still reads as a ball and palm tree to me. I'd also consider spacing out the text a little as well so it fills out the chevron a better. Maybe take the width of the green stroke and space the text that distance from the edges of the chevron.
  9. The thing that bugs me the most about the SAFC logo is that the angle of the "FC" doesn't match the angle of the stripes. If the letters weren't italicized it wouldn't be as bad, but as-is it looks sloppy. Also agree that the grey stroke moving throughout the logo and forming an S is a nice touch.
  10. From an article I read, the point of the light up 3-pt line is essentially to confirm that the shooter is behind the line. Shots from the near corner, where the player's feet are blocked by fans (e.g. Ray Allen's stepback in The Finals) and shots where the player's feet are very close to or on the line were cited as examples. So there's a use case, just not a very significant one.
  11. Per Chris' article on the main page, these are Spring Training specific jerseys, not BP jerseys. Teams will keep their BP jerseys for actual batting practice during the regular season. I like that - it always bugged me that teams wore BP jerseys during Spring Training. And it was especially bad when one team would wear their placketless BP jersey and the other would wear their regular season uniform.
  12. Because they have red stripes on the helmet and pants, red and white road jerseys, and grey pants. We're talking about the Rams adopting a solely blue and white color scheme, the same as the Colts
  13. This is really nice, mcrosby! I love the simplicity in the shapes and the retro feel. I agree the bridge could use a touch more detail, though. A few vertical lines on just the upper portion of the bridge would do the trick, IMO.
  14. The Stanford tree is the mascot for the band, not the athletic department, which would explain its randomness and the reason why it doesn't fit with the athletic branding.
  15. People who know that ravens are black with a purple sheen...
  16. I like the idea of a "Throwback Thursday" promotion. Have every team play one Thursday game against a division rival, starting with the oldest teams wearing the oldest throwbacks and ending with the newest teams in the newest throwbacks. So the first game would be Bears v Packers in 1920s unis and the last would be Texans v Jaguars in late 90s-early 2000s throwbacks. This way you don't have to worry about getting 8 new unis for every team and creating a ton of fauxbacks (though that would be pretty cool to see).
  17. Hopefully Houston goes back and fixes these next season. I know they just went to these but they aren't the best look for them. They should go with Kansas State sleeve stripes. Pants need fixed as well. It is my understanding that there will be new uni's next season. Having said that I prefer the all white uni's to our current home set. At the very least we need to keep the white helmets in our rotation. I always thought the Ware/Klingler run-and-shoot-era uniforms were good. Simple red and white, nothing superfluous. They should return to something like that.Something like this? (Shameless plug) I don't think any other FBS team uses a triple stripe right now. It's nice, but I think Nike will want to avoid anything involving three stripes.Perhaps - I don't think Nike would come to Houston with a design like this. But if Houston explicitly said they want a 3-stripe look inspired by the Andre Ware era, I'm sure Nike would concede. And they did wear throwbacks of those jerseys just last year.

  19. Are the Color Rash games next year all going to be divisional games? Cause if the Lions go all black, the Vikings and Packers will both have to be in all yellow. Yikes.
  20. Add some slight serifs to the stem of the leaf and make a T-leaf shoulder patch (like Brandon's concept) and that's a really solid set.
  21. Gotham, you mean? I believe it's a variant on Futura. The R, P, G, and K in particular look different. I believe he was referring to Century Gothic, which is similar to Futura. As for the new logo, if it's anything more than a tweak it combination of previous logo(s), this could go downhill quickly.
  22. how can you tell ?The stripes are supposed to be on the player's right leg, not his left.
  23. Love the new scripts, the emphasis on the "A" logo, and the return of the snake head logo and turquoise. I don't mind the diamond pattern at all, though they could have toned it down a bit on the jerseys. Maybe leave it on the side panels and take it off the shoulders. Not a fan of the darker grey road jerseys. The black scripts/numbers don't stand out enough. Overall, I like this a lot. It's different, which is okay, especially for a 90s expansion team.
