  1. Thanks so much. I didn't think to look there, but was just using google and list of news articles on this site and hadn't found it yet.
  2. Does anyone know if adidas is going to make those crazy "made in march uniforms again this year? Thanks!
  3. Not an innaccuracy, but in NCAA March Madness 08 if you do throwback uniforms, sometimes they come up as short shorts barely making it to the thigh.
  4. I really like the alternate burnt orange helmet, but I am not feeling the alternate burnt orange jersey because of the yoke/shoulder design thing. I think that the alternate should just the burnt orange helmet with the regular jersey(s). I also dislike any football pants with no stripes or anything on them, so I think that you should make the alternate pants the full time pants. I also really like the new font on the front of the jersey more than their old circus font; this one just reminds me of Texas for some reason. I think that you could make a really cool road alternate for them by using the burnt orange helmet, the regular white road jersey, and making a burnt orange version of the alt pants. I am glad that you strayed away from the black scheme for the Longhorns. Good Work!
  5. On the uniforms you really lose the tusk on the mint hat and jersey; you should either change the shade of green depending on the background is the only thing I can think of to fix it. Other than that I like the unis, but I think that the logo needs to be more 3D-ish.
  6. No, no Mets. He's aiming for the 50's, which was right before the Dodgers and Giants bolted for California. The Mets were founded in '61 (correct if I am wrong here) to replace them (hence the blue from Brooklyn and the orange from the Giants, and the Mets using the same NY logo that the Giants did). Really love the Braves road uni, but not feeling the inclusion of the A on the Red Sox road set. The way that the sock is positioned on Boston's primary reminded me of the Cards Bird-On-Bat logo which led to think that it would be cool to try to form the shape of the part of the sock that would cover the leg into a bat somehow.
  7. The Dophins look really sharp. I love the helmet stripe and the aqua facemask. The road set is just gorgeous. However I don't like navy blue for Miami; if anything I would rather see their previous teal act the way the navy currently does. I'll second seeing the Chiefs fairly quickly.
  8. Love the home jerseys for Kalamazoo. Is the legend you are talking about Jeter? I really like the script for the Legends too. Good Job.
  9. Nice to see this into a series. Expos look good, but could improve if you used their classic pinwheel caps in my opinion. Also the fluer-de-lis looks kinda awkward and random just hanging over the road wordmark. Really love the powder and red sets. PROBLEM SOLVED! With two Canada teams they can play each other in a 4-game series at the 4th of July and a regular/short series on Memorial Day so that every year we wouldn't have to hear/talk about the Blue Jays not wearing the special uniforms, but a special patch, is it weird, stupid, crazy, sweet? Nobody Ever Knows! Good Riddance! (conversation, not teams, don't want to offend someone)
  10. Revert the caps back to the primary (preferably as I stated earlier, switching the crown and bill colors). Then make the black jersey's sleeves black also and you have an exceptional set here. He didn't make the logo, that's their real logo. Also is that their stadium in real life or is it a new one that you came up with?
  11. Tampa Bay looks really good. Great fusion of eras. I really like the elimination of silver; I also like the shade of pewter that you chose over what they currently wear. Thank Goodness you got rid of the alarm clock font!
  12. The update looks good. Something else I would like to see is a batting helmet instead of the back of the cap. Good Work So Far!
  13. They are the same league as my T-Bones (look in my favorite logos thing). I haven't looked at their page in a while so it may still say that they (KC) are in the Northern league (again, I haven't seen it in a while so I might be making no sense), but they actually moved to the American Association a few years ago. I really like the home and road jerseys (I'm not feeling the alternates), but they would be even more amazing if you switched the colors of the crown and bill around (black crown with a tan/sand/gold bill).
  14. Why? The fans at home would know where the team is from, and want to see the team name. And the away fans care more about where the team is from not who they are.Besides that would also be throwing out 100+ years of tradition. You just don't do that like you just don't change Baltimore's colors to purple and green. That doesn't sound anything like what he made (his are more traditional with scripts and numbers on the back and front left or front right) so if you want to see that maybe you should make your own concept for the bird (no offense, but I just don't see him doing that with the way his concepts have looked). For the concept I'm not sure about the reverse pinwheel cap, but that black jersey with "Baltimore" on it is really good. I also like the move to a cartoon bird primary.
  15. I'm not really a fan of the northwestern stripe; I feel that if any team besides Northwestern is going to use it it should only be the Giants. I've always really liked that yellow helmet they have and that paired with yellow pants is gorgeous. I would also either make the white pants a more prominent feature or eliminate them completely.
  16. You need to upload your image to a site like imgur or photobucket. Then the site will give you some links somewhere on the page and you should click (to copy) the one next to IMG. Then insert that in the insert link icon (just below the size of font on your ribbon when you're post) by pressing CTRL + V. Then the image will show up when you post your post.
  17. I really like the home uniform for Oshkosh. It flows really well from the red to the silver to the wordmark to the white. Is "Loggers" like a really well-known well-used nickname for the sawdusters or is there another reason why you put loggers on a sawdustersuniform? EDIT: Just the chainsaw blade piping. That's Awesome.
  18. Ya, stay with the powder. I really like how well the blue helmet turned out. I really like your shade of powder; it's like it's a deeper more electric blueish powder that works really well.
  19. The yellow alternate is amazingly awesome and I LOVE the poker chip/sun logo. I'm not feeling the home or road, I think the letters are too close together and that there is too much blank space. Really nice concept.
  20. This looks really good. I too prefer the old colors to the overused piece of trash color scheme that they use now. I would be all for it to use this as the real thing over what they have now. The star coming off the bat looks a little bit awkward right now and when you switched the colors on it you should have changed the font to their current one also. Overall good job; this one of the best concepts that I have seen from a new member so far.
  21. I agree that you need to make the logos a bit bigger. Not anywhere as big as college fields have their logos, but just a little so that they are easier to see. I really like how that Lion's field turned out. The blue and silver on a field work really well. I'm not sure about having the helmet in the middle, but since their logo is blue like the field and they don't really have any alternate logos that was probably the best way to go.
  22. I agree with TheBearNYC that the black is the main problem here too. That aqua jersey looks really good though. EDIT: 250th post!
  23. Why do you only lines on the five, ten, and fifteen yard lines instead of throughout? Cleveland needs some orange or brown in there somewhere. Bills and browns need midfield logos. You should also move the secondary logos to the 25 yard line instead of the 15. For jerrylawless3's comment does Arizona play in a dome or is it a retractable roof stadium? I would almost think it would be artificial turf (don't take my word for it though as I am not learned in this area). EDIT: It might just be my monitor because when I zoom in I can see lines in the proper place.
  24. Quakes, Martians, Bighorns, Spuds, Drillers, Wranglers, Bushwhackers, and Rattlers are the names that I would pick. Also you should realign the divisions (inside the western conference) as: WEST EAST Boise Kansas City Los Angeles St.Louis Phoenix Denver Las Vegas Dallas
  25. I thought you said that they redrew the territories/states. Good start so far. For Chicago why not something like the gusts or something representative of wind and/or storms? Will be watching this. P.S. Nice to see someone else from the KC area. EDIT: I meant to say gales for Chicago since flyersfan's fictional wiffleball league has the Chicago Gust as a team. Literally, I was like "Don't write gusts, don't write gusts 'cause of that other thread" then I see my post and I'm like
