  1. From the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/alliance-of-american-football-to-kick-off-after-super-bowl/2018/03/20/f3ac7db8-2c4f-11e8-8dc9-3b51e028b845_story.html?utm_term=.66e7db0a451a
  2. https://aaf.com/ Co-founded by Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, the AAF will debut a week after the 2019 Super Bowl. There are a few familiar faces spearheading this new league, including: Troy Polamalu - Head of Player Relations Jared Allen - Player Relations Executive Justin Tuck - Player Engagement Board of Advisor The league will begin with 8 teams with a 12-week schedule. Games will be broadcasted on CBS. Fans will also be able to stream games via the Alliance app. Darren Rovell tweets the league will offer players a variety of perks including Win, Stats, and Fan Engagement bonuses. Rovell also tweets the league will follow suite with the Atlanta Falcons and offer value pricing on food and drink at stadiums. https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976116728907395072 https://twitter.com/darrenrovell/status/976115504019537920 Team locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
  3. It was nice seeing Jimmie running in the Top-10 and even in the Top-5 at one point. Hopefully they're able to build off this for Martinsville, where maybe Chase will finally show up this season. Other than his Duel victory, he's been less than stellar, but any Chevy without a 42 on it has this year. I was excited for the last 30 laps to see Kyle and Truex go at it but once word got out that Kyle's crew made the wrong adjustment, there was no stopping the 78. He was dominant all day and I don't think even Harvick would've had anything for him today.
  4. Loyola defeated Tennessee to earn a spot in the Sweet 16. Hate to see the season end for UT but man, I'm hoping we get a Loyola-UMBC Elite 8 matchup.
  5. Adam Schefter just reported Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Vikings but Cousins' agent says no deal has been made as of yet. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/973582107388841984 https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/97358210738884198
  6. This is a new group. I wasn't aware there was a group last year. I didn't set a password for this one but if we need to I can set one.
  7. March Madness 2018 is here! I've started a group for anyone around here wanting to join in on the bracket fun over on ESPN. http://games.espn.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/2018/en/sharer?redirect=tcmen%3A%2F%2Fx-callback-url%2FshowGroup%3FgroupID%3D2292457 To keep track of the standings easier, I think it'd be easier if you name your bracket after your CCSLC username.
  8. Way too early season outlook for Chevy has to be grim. Sure they wound up 1-2 with Dillon and Bubba in Daytona, but that was after a day of domination by Ryan Blaney. Didn't see much out of them last week either except for a last-ditch effort with Chase at Atlanta. Now nearing the end of stage one in Vegas, only four Camaros run in the top 20, with Chase Elliott being the highest-running in 9th. Jimmie Johnson and William Byron runs 3+ laps down as well in a Hendrick organization that used to dominate.
  9. I actually don't mind this look. My biggest gripe would be the numbers. Make them white and they've got a solid look IMO, gold or no gold.
  10. While I understand where you're coming from, that's just the nature of the sport. Certain drivers are going to be better at different tracks than others. That's why Harvick has been favored at Atlanta for the better part of the last five years because he's dominated there and at Phoenix and has the stats to prove it. I can almost guarantee that when they go to Auto Club in a couple weeks and Michigan in the summer, Kyle Larson will be the favorite since three of his four wins came at those tracks last season. Kyle Busch will likely be the favorite to win at Bristol and Richmond due to his success at those tracks. Truex will likely be the favorite to win at most 1.5 mile tracks this season because of how he dominated last year. Like I said, it's just the current state of the sport at the moment. Guys have better resumes at tracks on the circuit than others, making them heavily favored. To compare it to College Basketball, North Carolina, Duke, and Villanova are sure to be favorites despite how they got to the tournament because that's just what they do in March: win games.
  11. 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin posted this a couple days ago on Twitter. I would assume this is confirmation of white pants returning to San Francisco? https://twitter.com/flashg88dwin/status/965589669860855808
  12. The fact that they're using the old Wolves logo is almost just as bad.
  13. Considering a large portion of people around here want a return to block numbers, I'm going to rule that out since you say "everyone might be disappointed." Since you also added it's a new throwback, I'm ruling out a return of the bumblebee uniform. That leaves... the '33 set? Either that or the '60 set with a black helmet, which would be very similar and unnecessary with the Color Rush still in rotation.
  14. Here are a couple Xfinity Series paint schemes for the 2018 season (from Jayski) - Matt Tifft moves from Joe Gibbs to Richard Childress' #2 for 2018, which was the team's "all-star" car last season. - Cabela's sponsorship with RCR extends to the Xfinity series as well, serving as the primary sponsor in multiple races for Austin and Ty Dillon. - Tyler Reddick moves from Chip Ganassi to JR Motorsports full-time in 2018 and replaces 2017 Champion William Byron in the #9. Also, the Xfinity Series itself will be sporting a new look with a new logo for the 2018 season:
  15. A couple teams have been using the quarter panel numbers for their test cars, such as Bubba Wallace and Ryan Newman: Kyle Busch Motorsports prospect and son of Ward Burton - Harrison Burton - ran this paint scheme in the K&N series last year, which turned heads in the NASCAR community. I can't say I'm a fan of the look. However, I imagine sponsors would be all for this look as it prioritizes the company rather than the driver's number. Top-dollar sponsorship is usually placed on the hood of the car and has been for what seems like forever. Slapping Mountain Dew or Bass Pro Shops on the door in place of a giant number would be equally appealing in my eyes. There was a big debate on Twitter recently over this exact issue. I believe the overall consensus was the traditional door number was preferred, but both options are considered to be better than the boxed numbers you see in other divisions of racing. I've been a frequent visitor of Jayski's "NASCAR Silly Season Site" for several years until the format change with the alignment with ESPN. I originally went there for the paint schemes, but noticed Lionel had better quality images.
  16. With the Clash at Daytona in 8 days and the Daytona 500 on the 18th, it seemed like the perfect time to start a thread for the 2018 season. CUP SERIES GearWrench and Cessna return to the #1 of Jamir McMurray in 2018 with fresh new looks. With Miller Lite scaling back sponsorship, Discount Tire will pick up some of the slack and sponsor Brad Keselowski for 10 races in 2018. DOW Chemical, American Ethanol, and AAA all return to the #3 of Austin Dillon with new looks in 2018. Jimmy John's returns to Kevin Harvick with a slight update, while Busch Light will be featured in a few races along with Busch. Advocare returns to the #6 of Trevor Bayne in a new all-black paint scheme. Danica Patrick will make her final NASCAR start at the Daytona 500 with Premium Motorsports in the #7, with GoDaddy partnering with Patrick for her last race. Same team, new look for Chase Elliott. He will drive the #9 Chevy for Hendrick Motorsports to honor his father Bill Elliott and his hall-of-fame career. Hooters, Mountain Dew, NAPA, Kelly Blue Book, and SunEnergy will all sponsor Elliott in 2018. Aric Almirola makes the transition to the #10 for Stewart-Haas Racing, bringing long-time sponsor Smithfield with him. Ryan Blaney will drive the third car for Team Penske, piloting the #12 Ford with sponsorship by PPG Paints and Menards. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will look to carry his success in 2017 into the new season with a new look from Fastenal. Daniel Suarez looks to avoid a sophomore slump in his second season at the Cup level with new looks from Arris, Stanley, and Peak. Erik Jones makes the jump from Furniture Row to Joe Gibbs Racing, replacing Matt Kenseth in the #20 Toyota. Paul Menard will bring the family name and fluorescent yellow to the iconic Wood Brothers #21 for the 2018 season. The #5 becomes the #24 as 20-year-old William Byron will run for Rookie of the Year with Hendrick Motorsports in 2018 with sponsorship from Axalta, Liberty University, UniFirst, Ryan Newman returns to Richard Childress Racing for 2018 with a new look from Grainger and Caterpillar plus new sponsorship from Bass Pro Shops and Liberty National. CreditOne Bank takes over as the primary sponsor of Kyle Larson and the #42 for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2018. Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. will run for Rookie of the Year in 2018 driving the famous #43 for Richard Petty Motorsports as the team makes the move to Chevy. AJ Allmendinger returns to JTG Daughtery Racing in 2018 with Kroger coming back as the primary sponsor. Jimmie Johnson will go for a record eighth title in 2018 piloting a new all-black Lowe's paint scheme. 5-Hour Energy and Bass Pro Shops partner to sponsor 2017 Champion Martin Truex Jr. and the #78 team for 30 of the 36 races in 2018. Alex Bowman replaces the now-retired Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the #88 for Hendrick Motorsports with sponsorship from Nationwide and Axalta. Finally, Kasey Kahne moves to Leavine Family Racing for the 2018 season and will drive the #95 Procore Chevy.
  17. They look pretty sharp from the front. My only nitpick is the back view in the second pic, where the top of the shorts seem dark teal, while the bottom of the jersey seems dark royal. It makes for an awkward transition of color in my eyes. Like i said, the front looks great and the colors of the galaxy flow pretty well from top to bottom. It's the back that's bothering me. Still 7/10.
  18. I liked the Whopper ads BK ran with the abstract burger in place of the E in the WHOPPER word mark: I think that and a combination of their early 90s bun logo would look great. I think Sherwin-Williams could use a refresher:
  19. Just came here to post that. He also posted a behind-the-scenes look at his work with Oregon following the Broncos refresh https://www.behance.net/gallery/61222729/The-University-of-Oregon-Brand-Identity-Design-(1998)
  20. Thanks Michael! I appreciate it. Hard to believe it's been nearly two years since I last posted in this thread. Hoping to get into some more concepts until I can find work.
  21. Don't call it a comeback... but I'm back with a couple updates! With the Vegas Golden Knights on a tear in their inaugural season, I figured it was time to see what they would look like as a football team. Jerseys aren't too different from the real deal Main difference is a gold helmet and pants because they made the most sense given the team name White pants included in the rotation I also decided to update my Panthers concept seeing as how their identity was unveiled about a month or two after this series ended about 20 months ago. Kept things traditional and clean with the home uniform using only one pants combination while the road uniform looks good with multiple options Jerseys and numbers are a near direct transition minus the chest stripe White helmet used as the primary compared to the navy lid used in the original concept Changed things up a bit using the flag-panther logo on the helmet I'm in between jobs at the moment so I might go back and make a few tweaks, mainly to those who had uniform updates when Adidas took control.
  22. Not gonna lie, I like the Rams' all-white look. The standard home look is hot garbage, no question. But the gold isn't as noticeable (in my eyes) from the standard broadcast view. They still need an update, but after seeing the all-white look for most of the season, I'm no longer opposed to a navy and white rebrand.
  23. The logo looks fantastic in those colors yet looks so out of place with the rest of the court. I would've made the gray in the logo baby blue. I also don't like the white text overlapping where the red and blue meet on the baseline. Just too much. It's close, but yet so far away. As for the Jazz, I like the uniform, just not for the Jazz. admiral said it best, they HAD a great color scheme. Although it doesn't fit their intended area, I would love to see what this would look like in their primary colors. Maybe a blue-to-green gradient with gold topography?
  24. Matt Kenseth will not return to Cup action in 2018. https://www.nascar.com/news-media/2017/11/04/matt-kenseth-to-step-away-in-2018-nbc/
