  1. I'm not a huge fan of the name, but I guess it was right up there out of the choices. I like the C. It kind of gives off a shield vibe. Word marks are cool. Enough of a difference while still paying homage to the original identity. But WHAT THE HECK is that flying ball logo supposed to be? It looks like a beer league logo honestly. Also, isn't it kind of weird changing names in the middle of the season? Does this take effect immediately?
  2. I dig it. I'm glad they went with an S on the end. I assume they're still gonna rock the EE logo on the helmets and at midfield though?
  3. I mean technically North America iiiiiiis an island.
  4. I like what you're shooting for with Flint, definitely. But I do agree with what others have said. Maybe take some inspiration from the Pistons' old horse branding, where they used flaming exhaust pipes and stuff. I do love the color scheme though.
  5. This has been ongoing for as long as I can remember. Relocation and/or contraction. I personally thought the Howard Terminal stadium was a done deal, but the A's ownership apparently are still completely incompetent. I'd hate to see them go, as I've inexplicably always liked them (even as a Tigers fan).
  6. Wasn't those. Was definitely mid-90's, when I was 11 or 12. My mom literally keeps everything, but must have tossed these.
  7. This is a longshot and I've already scoured google, but does anyone remember a 'The Hockey News' edition from approximately 1994-95 that sort of predicted future NHL expansion teams? I remember it was like a 2 page article with a little map and logos and everything. I want to say there were 4-6 expansion teams. I remember the Portland Rainmen, there was a Houston team, and I want to say a Nashville team as well. I really wish I would've kept all my old magazines.
  8. Nice. Also, with Armadillos, you could have a logo with a rolled up Armadillo with a baseball incorporated into it.
  9. I was on the fence on that one honestly. Wrote Koufax first actually. You could even make an argument for Shaq and have all 4 as Lakers.
  10. DETROIT: Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman, Isiah Thomas, Barry Sanders MIAMI: Dan Marino, Dwayne Wade, Bob Griese, Don Shula ST. LOUIS: Stan Musial, Albert Pujols, Brett Hull, Bob Gibson SEATTLE: Gary Payton, Ken Griffey Jr., Steve Largent, Russell Wilson MINNESOTA: Frank Tarkenton, Kevin Garnett, Kirby Puckett, Killebrew BOSTON: Bobby Orr, Larry Bird, Tom Brady, Ted Williams LOS ANGELES: Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, Wayne Gretzky
  11. Agreed. It's like a relic of the 70's that just somehow scraped by, but it works.
  12. Very bland. I know that when they re-branded, they were trying to shed the 'life-long loser' image, but they had a really nice set. As common as RWB is, that cursive script made it stand out. A script that, at the time, was unique to basketball. If I'm not mistaken, besides specially designated uniforms (sorry, I cant keep up with NBA uniform shenanigans), it still may not be used. Even the blue alt with the Los Angeles script was nice.
  13. Nice work! I'm nitpicking here, but your sockeye salmon looks more like a Pike.
  14. Well the Tigers could go really anywhere, but who to Detroit? Could be Cubs I suppose (as Tigers have cubs) or something generic like Athletics, Giants or Reds. Also, the Astros are going to be interesting. Cape Canaveral is in Florida, but quite far from both Tampa and Miami, so I don't know. Cleveland does have a major NASA facility, but as you mentioned, they're out. Could be moving to somewhere with big open skies or something along those lines, but I'm stumped! Also some other predictions: Washington Yankees (because where else?) New York Nationals (it's not the nation's capital, but it general is the first city that comes to mind when you mention 'America') Texas Diamondbacks (the only other location that gives off a 'desert' vibe) Tampa Bay Pirates (it's on the Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean; also fits with the Buccaneers) Minnesota Rangers (due to the vast wilderness) Los Angeles Cubs (the Grizzly bear is the state animal of California, featured on their flag etc) Los Angeles Mets (L.A. is a vast metropolis on par with New York)
  15. Very cool. I was hoping the Isles would rock a Brooklyn Americans alt during their time in Brooklyn.
  16. Can't argue much with this. I don't see Tavares being retired by the Isles, because, as you mentioned, he went out hated and the team didn't accomplish jack while he was there.
  17. I like the idea of Elk, I just hate singular names, even if it's the proper grammar. Eagles, as generic as it is, is my choice from the list. I've been saying since day one, it should be Owls. Highly under-utilized in sports and the Great Horned Owl is the provincial bird of Alberta. Just change the double E logo to a single E.
  18. I personally agree with Markov and Koivu, but the Habs standard for retired numbers is sky high, so I really don't know. I think Zetterberg's a lock for the Red Wings as well. Others to consider: Buffalo- Ryan Miller
  19. That guy seems very interested in the game lol.
