  1. I'd wear that Trash Pandas logo on a t-shirt without question.
  2. The Hawks are in the Western Conference. Boston also primarily wears black. Neither of those really take away from your point, but I'm a bunch of jerk.
  3. Top version, perhaps with thinner gold stripes. I think I'd lean more for a red base than black, but I can also understand wanting to separate them visually from the Habs. (I also hate the Peace Tower logo and would definitely change the font, but that's secondary.)
  4. I suppose I was that guy when the Wild started up while I was living in Minnesota. I'd go to Wild games and enjoyed cheering for them.... unless they were playing the Blues, in which case I was wearing Blues gear. My situation was a little different, since I grew up in the St. Louis area and became a Blues fan as a kid and as such wasn't keen on giving up my previous allegiance.
  5. I saw this a while back and found it interesting.
  6. Ok, now that you've typed it that way a bunch of times... am I missing something? I thought it was Claus, except in the case of a few movies. And to be equal opportunity... Isn't it Elisha, not Elijah?
  7. Complete aside, but the Saints Row series is much, much better than Grand Theft Auto, and I'm totally willing to die on that hill.
  8. That's petty and I love it. Plus it made one of the most visible and worst Fire fans on the planet, Don Walsh, angry; that's a double bonus.
  9. Plus, they haven't had to put in any effort for fifty years. Brilliant!
  10. Good thing that some things are subjective, such as the Kraken identity being beautiful or It's Always Sunny being a moist turd of a show.
  11. A Real Genius clip is not what I would have expected in this thread, but there it is and damn I love that movie.
  12. I'd heard rumors that Republic and the Oakland Roots were possibly going to host a few Utah Royals home games this year. Until, you know, all of this happened.
  13. Thank you, random new user, for bumping this thread. I hadn't seen it before, and there's some great stuff.
  14. That monogram reads as SLT to me. It's an interesting idea, but overally there's so much jammed into such a small space. The apotheosis disappears into the background and the text elements have no room to breathe. I think you've got a good set of elements (even if I'm not a fan of the font), but the arrangement doesn't work.
  15. Y'know, I thought I would like the red being gone; but now that I've seen it, I think the red is necessary. For as much as their identity is as red and black, the logo becomes even more heavily gold without that red outline.
  16. Riiiiiiiiiiight. At least you didn't manage to put MLB in there, where teams are named for laundry, but some of the "traditional" team names in all sports are weird when taken on their own. Packers? Browns? Pistons? Knickerbockers? C'mon. Look, when Goth and I fully agree on something, it either has to be the worst thing ever or it's amazing. In this case, it's 10s across the m-f-ing board. I've been hoping for Kraken the whole time; first because I liked the idea, then secondly because it would make so many of y'all mad. Then to have that name accompanied by an amazing visual look? The S logo nails it. That's a beautiful hockey crest for what looks to be a terrific set of jerseys. That anchor/Needle logo is terrific. While the wordmark doesn't wow me as much as the rest, it's still really good. I'm convinced that they've nailed it here.
  17. I now can't unsee the C as a G in that monogram.
  18. That's not the outcome of this tournament, though. At least, not according to what they've said previously.
  19. This is the only true choice for jersey base. I wouldn't go block numbers, mostly because everything else about the identity is very curved. Maybe a block-like font with curved edges or some such, but not angular block. I still will never understand why people like the utterly crap Peace Tower logo. It's terrible. Awful. Putrid.
  20. And both teams are in their change kits. *twitch twitch*
  21. That's maybe a bit too punny. Washington Power has been done a couple of times, though.
