  1. Which division or conference in sports in general do you think has the most perfect alignment of teams based on geography that makes sense, historical rivals, prestige, mutual respect, etc? Like if there’s ever an expansion or relocation or whatever, you better not touch that division or there will be hell to pay? I nominate the NFC North with the Vikings, Bears, Packers, and the Lions. They’re in a great location in the country and close to each other, and the four haven’t broken up since forever (the Buccaneers doesn’t count), and all of their games against each other has always been great with hate but respect. What other division or conference do you think could fit that mold?
  2. I'm almost with 100% certainty this is the reason. If MLB players continue to wear their pants down to their ankles with a baggy fit, then the colored pants won't look as good. But if they wear high socks with a little fitter pants, then I see no reason why colored pants can't work in MLB. I mean, the Rays could go with something like this: One of the navy-red teams could go something with this too. After googling some softball uniforms, I saw a few teams with white tops with colored pants (including the Maine team in above pic). Just sharing some pics/thoughts.
  3. Oh so you're basically saying that they never took an actual US flag and ripped them apart to use them for uniforms? They're basically making them from scratch? Hmm. Never thought of it that way.
  4. With MiLB rolling out Spanish=language Copa de la Diversion brands for over 70 of their teams, I thought I'd bring this topic up again and show what the Iowa Cubs are doing with their Demonios de Des Moines branding and their uniforms. I noticed that they had a dark blue jersey AND pants, as seen in their "live video" on Facebook. I have to admit, the dark and colored pants kinda looks good. Based on my above post from January 18, I think I'm starting to come around on colored pants in MLB. I think only certain teams can pull it off, and maybe make these darker colors have a mandatory high socks so they'd look better? If they had "baggy" colored pants then it'd look bad. What do you think? I mean, the Pirates and the A's can pull it off as seen here: I'm thinking teams like the Rockies, Diamondbacks, Rays, Marlins, maybe the Blue Jays, Mariners, and Padres could also pull this kind of look. The newer teams could pull it off.Classical teams like the Yankees or Red Sox or Cubs or Dodgers, probably not so much. I know it's a traditional sport, but I think with the right teams with the right colors and look, they can easily pull it off. If softball players can do it, so can MLB. I'm not saying make them a throwback or whatever. I think there CAN be modern "monochrome" and/or different colored jersey/pants that aren't white or gray looks in MLB. What do you think? Just thought I'd bump up this thread in light of the MiLB's Copa de la Diversion program!
  5. (j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. Source: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/4/8
  6. Are there any merit to this? If it truly was intentional, then wow, kudos. If not, then a happy accident? What do you think? I think it’s a little of a stretch, but a happy coincidence.
  7. I really like this! This may be an unpopular opinion, but I don't mind standardized logos, as it keeps the brand consistent. HOWEVER, the way the NFL is executing their standardized logos is just awful. The two you've created so far has been fantastic. They're still standardized, but they each have their own personality. That's exactly what they should be doing. That's why I'm a big fan of the Final Four logos the NCAA has been pumping out since 2002 or so. They're similar, yet they all look different enough that you immediately know it's the Final Four in X city.
  8. Just read through this thread. Fantastic job! I love the concept of the league and I also love how more whimsical the logos are. Keep it up. The Cavemen are one of my favorites so far! I agree. I'd use one big tree instead of two to create negative space between the legs.
  9. I was just thinking about the above post by @raysox today. For some reason, softball players can totally pull off the colored pants while baseball players usually can’t. I promise this is not some gender thing but I just can’t place my finger on why colored pants in softball looks better than baseball. Maybe one reason is that softball players wear high socks like 99.9999999% of the time, so it complements the colored pants better than black/white shoes. Maybe another is that softball is less traditional and conservative than baseball so they’re allowed to be more experimental with their uniforms. Either way, I don’t mind seeing more color pants in MLB. I just think the problem is that it is VERY difficult to pull it off and there’s only so many teams you could try it with. Like, the D-backs or the Rockies could, but the Yankees or Tigers can’t. EDIT: After thinking about it, I think it’s because the softball uniforms are more form-fitting, which makes it look almost like a football uniform. Football uniforms can easily pull off the multi-colored uniforms while baseball pants generally have to be white or gray. It’s weird. Like there are points when I WANT more color pants in baseball but at the same time I don’t.
  10. I love the S seal logo! It looks fantastic. My only criticism is that I personally think you should flip the seal and the wave around. Put the seal on the bottom as if he's swimming UP toward the Wave. Right now with the seal swimming downward it feels somewhat "negative" if that makes sense. You should have the seal going/looking up toward a more positive feel, like you're working up to a grander goal. Hope that made sense!
  11. YES!! I loved it when the Minnesota Twins had the road pinstripes. It's what allowed them to separate from all other navy-red teams.
  12. Several more leaked logos just came out on twitter today:
  13. I would love it if the Cubs could use this throwback road jersey as their full-time road uniforms. Maybe with blue cap/red bill, a red number on the front too along with blue NOB, red number on the back. I also love the blue alt jerseys, but would prefer to keep them on the road as it currently is. Home whites only at Wrigley.
  14. Like what @buzzcut said, switch the IL West with the IL South, so that way, Iowa, Omaha, Memphis, etc. can be in the same league with Louisville, Indianapolis, etc, while the IL is more Atlantic coast based. As for the National Championship, maybe take the 3 league winners and a preselected championship host and place them in a 4-team bracket thing. I believe the Canadian Hockey junior does the same thing.
