  1. Pretty much - a guy you build your team around.
  2. I want to move the tv numbers to the shoulders and turn the cuffs into fuller stripes, like the Chiefs did. Aside from that, keep it intact.
  3. As a guy who has lived in Portland and Denver - both arenas are very interchangeable.
  4. The search function is pretty broken right now. Search results now only go back a day or two. Will they be re-indexed?
  5. Michael Jaundice has never had a clue about running a team.
  6. Idk, the double outlines aren’t my taste. Given that orange is the center stripe, maybe doing a U of Florida/Oilers-style consistent stripe would be cool.
  7. Winston has been cursed ever since the Tallahassee cops swept a certain little something under the rug.
  8. Zaza was a sack of sentient feces who nearly delegitimized that Warriors title and I’m frustrated that he prevented a competitive Warriors-Spurs matchup.
  9. Let’s just say that it’s probably happening. From Terry Pluto: https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2020/11/fans-love-to-watch-in-indians-on-tv-whats-up-with-team-name-terry-talkin-tribe.html Once Wahoo went away, it was only a matter of time before the name had to go as well. Yes, they did have the name before Wahoo, but Wahoo had become so thoroughly attached to the name. You couldn’t realistically separate them for the public. The name has to go to have even a decent, non-generic identity. The colors must stay, of course. Maybe some light blue accents would be nice, but they don’t really need them.
  10. It’s a Catholic University, with a significant Irish-American Catholic heritage. It’s permissible and arguably more property of ND. If it was just “Irish” and if the Irish hadn’t been elevated to the level of “white” in the decades since their initial arrival into the US, then there might be more of an issue. Both hockey teams were founded by white Canadians and use terms that refer to white Canadians, so it's permissible. White Canadians are not a historically oppressed minority that fell victim to a long-term genocide.
  11. Welcome to MLB: The Defunct Series! After spending last year producing Project 32’s myriad of redesigns and tweaks, I figured that I should apply the same philosophy to the defunct teams of the majors. Much like its predecessor, each team will have two to three parts. The first part will be the main concept, the one that I’m happiest with presenting/matches the historical trajectory of the team’s aesthetics. The other will be an alternate take, in which I can explore different identities and shirk brand equity to have a little fun. I’ve also got plans to include several attempted relocations, with a focus on deals that fell through at the last minute/pose the most visual interest. These will not have alternate takes since they are essentially alternate takes in their own right. The releases will go by chronology, starting with the Boston Braves. The only one out of order is the last one since the short lifespan of the said team leaves their visual history up for more speculation.
