  1. Don't care what the logo is, I just want them to go back to making basketball and cleated shoes.
  2. Deadspin was one of my staple sites. Would go there multiple times a day, along with some of its sister sites. If I wanted strictly sports news and box scores, I'd go to ESPN. I enjoyed the side snarky commentary. I'm really disappointed that I won't get to read any of their stuff for a while, and not likely collected in one place in the future. It's very ironic that of all the sites reveling in the downfall, it's another site with "sports" in its name that is basically the exact same thing, but with a very pro-MAGA bent—Barstool. (See also Turtleboy Sports if you live in Massachusetts). Portnoy is a huge misogynist douchebag, and his site caters to that crowd. So it's fine that they co-existed. But out of the crawlspace come all the other MAGAheads supporting Portnoy and laughing at Deadspin's demise. Deadspin really didn't have one face behind the name like Barstool does. And while it was definitely the polar opposite of Barstool, the most visible name that was currently writing on it was likely Drew Magary. But, like many of the other writers, Drew also posted on other sites. He wasn't strictly Deadspin. Unlike Portnoy, who is 100% Barstool.
  3. Arial Bold Italic, then distorted a bit.
  4. What's your user name on dribbble?
  5. I also have one that's soon to expire.
  6. I like the CBS versions, but the timeouts are hard to pick out. I would like to see something indicating which team has possession, and the down/yds to go.
  7. The Inom Pigs are my favorite baseball squadron.
  8. That's just the font "Matrix". Phoenix isn't known for modifying the three or four fonts in their library outside of bevels and arching.
  9. Maine and New Hampshire seem to have some unique names... Maine: Maine Maritime Mariners Colby Mules Bowdoin Polar Bears University of New England Nor'Easters St. Joseph's College Monks U-Maine Black Bears U-Maine Augusta Moose U-Maine Machias Clippers U-Maine Presque Isle Owls Bridgton Academy Wolverines NH: Colby-Sawyer Chargers Dartmouth Big Green Franklin Pierce Ravens New England College Pilgrims Rivier Raiders Southern New Hampshire Penmen
  10. I had an idea in mind, but this is pretty much it. The University of Memphis has used tiger stripes on its sleeves for a few seasons now, and I think it would be a cleaner look for the Bengals. With the exception of the number font, you've matched my idea, so there's no need for me to enter
  11. I couldn't read the letters right away. First thing I saw was an F and an L. It's also not instinctive to associate wrought iron with lawn care.
  12. Smaller can, fewer cups, probably same price.
  13. Stay tuned for the Faucet City Kitchen Sinks, coming soon to a ballpark near you.
  14. ...and one last graphic to close out this thread.
  15. Gotham Black - it's more than just a typeface.
  16. I thought it was done by Pentagram. Was TFJ working or commissioned by them at the time?
  17. Check out Bill Henderson's MLB jersey style guide book. It covers all teams from 1970 to the present, and goes into great detail with all the jerseys regarding NOB, NNOB, different name lettering, nameplates vs. no nameplates, etc.
  18. Thank you all for the compliments. I've compiled the fonts from various projects I've worked...some are actual working fonts, others are just redrawn. It's difficult for me to just watch bowl games and March Madness without working on some related project. Thanks, ADD.
  19. ...and the Final Four is set.
  20. Updated for the regional finals...
  21. Much like with the bowl games, basketball + energy = fun in Illustrator. So I present each regional bracket, displayed by team jerseys and scores. This will be updated again after next weekend's games. Click to enlarge.
  22. There was also a team out of the Portland area called the Maine Freeze. I liked this logo. At that time, the women's league was smaller and more geographically centered, so many of the women's teams were affiliated with some semi-pro men's teams.
  23. I believe the Renegades originally started as the Boston Militia. The Militia went undefeated a number of seasons, but ended up folding when it became too cost-prohibitive to field a team. It was a semi-pro league, but with the closest teams in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., it became too expensive to absorb all the travel and insurance costs. Before becoming the Renegades, some players spun off from ownership to form their own team, the Mass Mutiny (no logo found). I knew a few people who officiated some Militia games.
  24. Made them myself, a combination of templates found here, and from UA/Adidas catalogs.
  25. It's actually just an Aztec calendar. I found a vector that was very similar to what they were using.
