  1. The only bad part of Ohio is Toledo, which is near Michigan. And Detroit, well it's Detroit.

  2. The prefectures of Japan feature a lot of simple but elegant flag designs typically with stylized versions of a letter or word in Japanese (the name or first letter/syllable of the prefecture). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Japanese_flags#Prefectural_flags
  3. Put an expansion team in Detroit! Interesting use of non-plural nicknames.
  4. Homer pick as a Pistons fan: 30 for 30 about the Bad Boy Pistons More objective pick: 30 for 30 Pony Excess about SMU paying players and the ensuing death penalty
  5. What about them?Galaxy sort of works because LA is large and diverse and the centre of the pop culture world. Houston Dynamo is one of those European style names that doesn't really work. The Chicago Fire have always had a weird identity. The branding revolves around firefighting, which you would think a team named "Fire" would want to avoid. The Fire nickname dates back to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.^Exactly, in that way the Chicago Fire is similar to the Texas Rangers and Colorado Rockies.
  6. Of the 50 states I'd go with New Mexico and of current country flags, it's a toss up between Iran and the UK.
  7. Thanks mate, I appreciate Were you planning on doing redesigns for other teams with currently tacky logos?
  8. Great redesign, much better than the actual current logo and uniforms.
  9. The plain green flag posted earlier was the flag of Libya until the relatively recent revolution during the Arab Spring took place. Here is my favorite flag: East Germany (1949-1990) The hammer represents the working class, the compass represents the intelligentsia, and the rye around the two represents farmers. Black, red, and gold are in horizontal stripes just like the flag of West Germany (same flag as the current reunified Germany) from the flag of the Weimar Republic.
  10. Pretty awesome, I would wear that Red Wings one in the top row. The other Red Wings one has too much black.
  11. I'd say not at all, a lot of the best franchises in sports don't have particularly intimidating names- Packers, Yankees, Cardinals, Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, Canadians, Red Wings, Maple Leafs. I personally am more of a fan of teams with names related to location, work, or something else non-generic. Also, a lot of newer teams try using intimidating nicknames to seem legitimate (possibly)- Panthers, Jaguars, Grizzlies, Predators, Hurricanes, etc.
  12. Baltimore almost got an NFL team in 1993 which would have meant that the original Browns would have either not moved or moved to a different city. Here's a list: http://mentalfloss.com/article/29462/11-expansion-teams-just-missed-cut
  13. Personally I don't like how it sounds, if they're going with the mafia connection- I'd rather go with a name like the Dons or the Godfathers.This team I was referring to (Calgary) is not mafia connected. Gotcha, I figured you were talking about the New Jersey Hitmen of the XFL and USPHL.
