  1. https://twitter.com/aflblackjacks/status/1115355042654113793 I don't understand that they have "ATLANTIC CITY" on the alternates but "A.C." on the whites... (How do you embed a tweet?)
  2. The Soul look like the garbage you'd see in the American Arena League or on a pop warner team who tries too hard...
  3. The XFL just tweeted a helmet along with a Spring League helmet that looks just like the New Jersey Generals helmet design from the proposed A11FL logos that were floating around a few years ago. As in exactly like the proposed logos and helmet concept. EDIT It appears one of the spring league teams is the Austin Generals... My bad
  4. San Diego Armada would have been a great team name, but another proposed spring league Major League Football (MLFB) announced last year the Virginia Armada as one of their teams. The others being Alabama Airbourne, Arkansas Attack, Florida Fusion, Ohio Union, Oklahoma Nation, Oregon Crash, and Texas Independence. The MLFB has been trying to get started since 2014 and will probably play a single down, but I have to wonder if that could have been a reasoning behind going with San Diego Fleet.
  5. I was thinking the same thing, I think the name and colors are perfect for a Utah based franchise. I'm a big fan of all of the logos and color schemes because they're no necessarily cliché choices (i.e. Arizona Hot Shots) and while the names are sort of odd (i.e. San Diego Fleet) I like that they're mostly original in pro football (exception being Express (LA -USFL) and Stallions (CFL-USA) I'm not sure most teams will draw comparisons to past teams in their respective markets and that's important.
  6. On the Apollos' team shop they have a hat featuring the "O" without Apollo, the bow is a highlight of the O which I think is clever. The Birmingham Iron is my favorite of the bunch, went ahead and ordered a hoodie because I have zero self-control.
  7. I completely disagree with you on this one, I think the pink and brighter aqua scream Miami similar to the Heat's alternate uniform they're wearing this season. These scream South Beach. They scream Don Johnson in loafers without socks. They just feel oh so right.
  8. These uniforms looks like the angsty teenage kid of the 90's gold uniforms and the last Nike set... doing everything to piss off its parents.
  9. Graduated from Hoopeston Area High School, home of the Cornjerkers. Even growing up with the name, I still laugh.
  10. The blue reads closer to purple, am I seeing it weird? Am I broken? I'm not crazy right, that's "Blurple" right? HELP.
  11. First thing that came to mind was the character from Dead Space:
  12. I got a Fanatics brand Red Wings sweater for Christmas and I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of it! After checking out the new Adidas jerseys in-store I decided that the extra money for the logo just didn't make sense to me so when asked what I wanted for Christmas, I pointed my family in the direction of the Fanatics brand sweater. They're basically the Reebok Premier jerseys I've been buying for the last few years, they've just sewn in a fight strap. What I really like about the Fanatics jersey is the fact that the crests and numbers are a much softer material, it feels really nice to the touch and when I have the jersey on. The fabric is a lot softer than the Adidas jerseys and previous Reebok's, which has been a complaint I've had for a while, why were the Reebok jerseys so much coarser than the old CCM jerseys? I just bought an AHL CCM jersey a few weeks ago while at a game and was amazing that the fabric was different than the Reebok jerseys, it felt much smoother and softer. The Fanatics jersey has a different cut that is really comfortable, I don't feel like the jersey is going to get in the way or end up somewhere I don't want it. Tighter tailoring is nice and while initially I thought the collars were goofy looking, now that I've worn mine a round I'm a big fan of it! The collar is a thicker material than the rest of the jersey and falls flat nicely, I think it's going to be a really nice sweater to wear over a hoodie in a few weeks when I venture to Chicago the Wings vs. Hawks game! I'm really interested in seeing how the jersey holds up over time, I tend to wear my jerseys A LOT, so this one is going to get some wear early in its life. Has anyone else bought/been gifted a Fanatics jersey? What are your thoughts on them and have yours worn well?
  13. Western Michigan looks horrid, I want to rip my eye-balls out, but the one thing that drives me nuts about their uniforms for the last three years is their inability to wear the bronco logo correctly. They also seem to have invert the logo and it doesn't look right... EVER!
  14. Damn they got any more? They had two when I was there.
  15. I nabbed a green Nike Oregon replica jersey. Regular $120 got it for $35 at Ross in Danville, Illinois.
