  1. Great job with the New Orleans Athletics uniforms. However, on the numbers and letters on the home and road jerseys, I would have added purple trim to the script Athletics and New Orleans and have the numbers and letters be green with purple and gold trim. As for the pelican, it is a nice touch but I wouldn't know if the NBA's Pelicans would allow the A's to use the pelican for their logo. They could either bite the bullet with the elephant or use the nutria (the animal with orange teeth that the minor league Zephyrs used for their mascots and logo) for their logo. If the Oakland Athletics decide to move if they can't find a place in Oakland for a new ballpark, maybe they should look at the Crescent City among others for a new home. The ballpark, The Shrine on Airline in suburban Metairie (Formerly Zephyr Field) could either be expanded or torn down and a new retractable roof ballpark be built in its place.
  2. Memphis, TN is east of the Mississippi River (actually for all intents and purposes, it is on the Mississippi). In my opinion, when MLB does expand, and if two cities west of the Mississippi get PCL franchises, then the Memphis Redbirds and the Nashville Sounds should move to the IL.
  3. Those are nice Dallas Athletics. I would think, however, that if Mr. Finley had moved the team to the Dallas-Ft. Worth suburb of Arlington, I believe he would have named the team the Texas Athletics, in order to encompass the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. The caps would have had an Old English "T" instead of the "DA" that you have on your caps. Could you do one with the Texas Athletics?
  4. On the gray road uniforms for the Braves, I would've made the first letter A in Atlanta larger like the team used for their road uniforms from 1976 to 1980.
  5. I wish the Celtics would put either another Red Auerbach signature or something like "17 time NBA Champions" in the lower right area of the court. However, I think that when the Celtics made a new floor using parts of the historic floor that was in Boston Arena (now Matthews Arena) and later the Boston Garden, Coach Auerbach's signature is on two of the original parquet panels.
  6. I know the 5280 stands for the altitude of Denver (The Mile High City) but what does the 300 stand for?
  7. OK. Thanks. Sorry for any inconvenience. Also, to the posters on this website, please pray for my family. My father, who served in the US Army during the Korean War, passed away on Christmas Eve after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's Disease, dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease. He was 84 years of age.
  8. I have three questions: 1.I noticed the Charlotte Hornets Court has one corner cut off of it. Is that an error or is that the way the Hornets court is at the Time Warner cable Arena. 2. I know you have the basketball courts at the New Orleans Jazz when they played at the Louisiana Superdome. Do you have the pictures of the basketball courts they just used when they play their games Municipal Auditorium and the Loyola Field House, where the jazz play before the Superdome was completed? 3. Do you have any of the courts from the other American Basketball Association teams besides the Nuggets, the Pacers, the Nets, and the Spurs?
  9. I wanted to tell you about the Atlanta Hawks basketball court when they played at the Alexander Memorial Coliseum on the Georgia Tech campus. On YouTube, if you enter Classic Center Battle Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 32 pts vs Earl Bellamy 21 points, you will see a matchup from 10-17-1970 between the Milwaukee Bucks (when Kareem was still known as Lew Alcindor) and the Atlanta Hawks (This was Pistol Pete Maravich's first NBA game and Oscar Robertson's first game as Milwaukee buck after being acquired from the Cincinnati Royals). If you look at the picture, the jump circle has two white lines through the center of the yellow outer circle where you had the GT logo, and In the inner circle was the blue Hawk head profile on the green circle background.
  10. All 3 of you didn't like the ODU blue stain. Besides completely removing the blue stain, what other suggestions (logo placement, other stains, etc.) do you have for their court? I actually liked the blue stain, so I'm a bit surprised by the comments. About the UTSA roadrunners on the court, I wanted to included full roadrunner logo on the court but I didn't want to put it in the paint like I did/going to do with some other teams. So I kind of just put them somewhere just to have them on there. I wasn't completely happy with them on there either. PSUcelticsWON95, the Marshall letters were taken from this wordmark. Can you be more clear about what you meant about UTEP? I took the pickax idea from their current court, but wanted to add more blue to the court. And I agree with you on the Hawaii state silhouette/sweat stain thing, but I never really thought they looked like sweat stains to start with. Two thumbs up on Southern Miss' court. Louisiana Tech's looks great also, but the women's teams, who also play at the Thomas Assembly Center in Ruston, are called the "Lady Techsters" because when the women's team was started in 1974, coach Sonja Hogg decided not to call the team The Lady Bulldogs because she thought bulldogs were unfeminine and that female dogs were, well, the word she used rhymes with "Witches".
  11. 2015 will mark the 50th season that the Braves have called Atlanta home since moving to Georgia's capital city in 1966 from Milwaukee. Have the Braves released any information on what their 50th anniversary logo will look like. Here is what I would like to see on the 50th season logo: the current A cap logo (which was also used when the team came to Atlanta), the lower case A logo (used in the 1970's), the Chief Noc-A-Homa Logo, and either the regular tomahawk logo or the Tomahawk A logo all surrounding the Braves' current logo and the commemorative 50th year word mark. Please notify me if and when the Braves announce their 50th Season in Atlanta logo.
  12. NOTICE: Please read this before you decide to post. If you're just going to comment on the logo suggestion, feel free to post. If you're just wanting to make a post that will turn this into a political football, don't bother. .As you know, the USPTO said that they would not continue to trademark the name Redskins, and many people on this board have suggested the team go to Warriors, which in fact, owner Daniel Snyder has sent a trade mark on. My suggestion would be to either use a logo of a soldier from the Marines Memorial in Washington (which was taken from a picture of the US Marines raising the American flag at Mt. Suribachi at Iwo Jima). It could either be a composite of the soldiers who raised the flag or (here is my suggestion) model the logo after Ira Hayes, a member of the Pima Nation in Arizona who was immortalized in the song written by Peter LaFarge, "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" (the most famous version being sung by Johnny Cash in 1964). The logo would be the face to the Warrior/Soldier inside of a circle surrounded by laurel leaves. The helmet would be burgundy with the logo being gold and white with burgundy accents. I feel that, this way, the logo would honor both the men and women who fought for our country and put a positive light to the Native Americans. Here are some logo ideas (not done by me) followed by the pictures of the Monument and then of Ira Hayes, followed by a link for Ira's biography and the song by Johnny Cash. Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Gather round me people there's a story I would tell About a brave young Indian that you should remember well From the tribe of the Pima Indian, a proud and peaceful band Who farmed the Phoenix valley in Arizona land Down the ditches for a thousand years The water grew Ira's peoples' crops 'Til the white man stole the water rights And the sparklin' water stopped Now Ira's folks were hungry And their land grew crops of weeds But when war came, Ira volunteered And forgot the white man's greed Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war There they battled up Iwo Jima's hill Two hundred and fifty men But only twenty-seven lived To fight back down again And when that fight was over And when Old Glory raised Among the men who held it high Was the Indian, Ira Hayes Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Ira returned a hero Celebrated through the land He was wined and speeched and honored Everybody shook his hand But he was just a Pima Indian No water, no crops, no chance At home nobody cared what Ira had done And when did the Indians dance Then Ira started drinkin' hard Jail was often his home They'd let him raise the flag and lower it Like you'd throw a dog a bone He died drunk early one mornin' Alone in the land he fought to save Two inches of water in a lonely ditch Was a grave for Ira Hayes Call him drunken Ira Hayes He won't answer anymore Not the whiskey drinkin' Indian Nor the Marine that went to war Yeah, call him drunken Ira Hayes But his land is just as dry And his ghost is lyin' thirsty In the ditch where Ira died Link to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX1pLlmMcmk&feature=player_embedded Again,please read this before you decide to post. If you're just going to comment on the logo suggestion, feel free to post. If you're just wanting to make a post that will turn this into a political football, don't bother.
  13. I would like to see the Cardinals' logo tweaked a little bit. Change the inside of the cardinal head and the trim from black to dark blue and change the color of the beak to copper. I would do this to match the colors of the Arizona state flag, and it would add a bit of uniqueness as the Cardinals would be the only team in the NFL to have copper as a team color. Here is a pic of the Arizona state flag to go by:Y You could also use a metallic copper color for the beak. Here are some examples. First, the helmet of the USFL's Arizona Wranglers, and second, the copper alternate helmet used by the University of Arizona Wildcats football team.
