  1. The Suns set is amazing! I am loving the Warriors and the Kings sets and I'm digging switching the Wizards colors back to the late 90s-early 2000s scheme. I also like the LA set, but I think the Clippers white alternate is well executed but the wrong look for them. I know it's inspired by the flag, but it has too much of a Caribbean vibe to it for it to work for the Clips IMO. One thing I can't be on board with, though...Unless you're going to return the whole scheme to the late 90s, adding black to the Pistons just seems like BFBS the way you've done it. If you added it to maybe the outside of the blue and red stripes instead of in the middle, that could maybe work, but I don't think you need it at all to have a solid set. Keep up the good work!
  2. I see IT and LBJ and I think Durant and Westbrook v2. Anyone else agree with that or am I crazy? I just don't see the two staying together long-term. IMO their styles are different enough for it to be an issue.
  3. It definitely pops more with the outline, but it isn't needed. If we had to vote, my vote would be for the outline.
  4. As funny as this is...Is this a 5 year old tweet? How old was he when he wrote this? 13??
  5. I was having this conversation with a few friends today and none of us could think of a time when the league more than 5 legitimate contenders at the same time. We're all in our 30s so maybe we haven't been watching for long enough?
  6. Really liking the light blue/purple scheme, but the blue/white gives it a more classic look. Depends on if you want a unique or a classic look for Ticondez. Liking MLCF's so far as well.
  7. Gonna agree with BuffaloJJ on what looks the best there. Anchor in the wheel is my favorite look, but I wonder how it would look with that fourth color scheme. I like this series so far. Looking forward to the rest!
  8. I assumed the origins of the name, my point was that somewhere down the line the school will get noticed and how long will the name be able to stay once that happens? There's already support (albeit one article that you've showed me) for a name change and links drawn and precedent for changing names found to be controversial. I'm not saying I agree or disagree, just putting that thought out there.
  9. I love the SFU update, but I wonder how long the name "clan" will work for an ncaa program...
  10. I say eliminate all black from that yellow Cleveland set (including the shorts logo) and you have a winner.
  11. My question is, Axis or Allies? This is a cool idea, but it is...very ambitious, I'll say. You have a lot of teams to do here and the quality of the work shows signs of being a little rushed. For example, that's clearly the Under Armour logo on AC East Wood's kit, but your description says they're made by Umbro. You were inspired by @TheGiantsFan, right? Do you notice that their work is usually pretty clean? I would, maybe, concentrate on one team at a time and work more on polishing your work a bit. If I were to make a suggestion, I would say start with Royal Saint City. It's my favorite of the set you have up so far. I think the crest is great and would love to see that look cleaned up a bit more. Good ideas here so far!
  12. I just saw the video...I don't believe he was in control of his actions for the bolded reason. Those weren't full control steps, that was him stumbling and then lunging to the end zone IMHO. The amount of steps he takes doesn't matter because he's in the process of going to the ground during the catch. Is it a stupid rule? Yes, from the moment they put it in to justify taking a win from Detroit years back. As dumb as it is, it is the rule and the correct call. In any case...Dallas had their chances.
  13. ...and the pretty blatant holding no-call on what would eventually be the game winning touchdown pass? Nobody is saying that Dallas didn't fight their way back from being down 14-0 then 20-7 to get to 20-17 and put themselves in a position to win the game. Nobody is discounting that. What -is- being said is that the picked up PI called changed the game. Instead of a fresh set of downs, it's 4th and 1. No the incredibly shanked punt didn't help matters, but to say that was more detrimental to the Lions is to deny that the PI call had any significance on the way the game was played and ignores the fact that had the call been made DETROIT WOULD NOT HAVE PUNTED IN THAT SITUATION! Add in that an additional 15 yard flag on Dez Bryant would have put the lions around the 15, if I remember right, and you have a completely different situation than 4th and 1 and out of field goal range. Do we know what the outcome of the game would have been if that call had been made? No. Dallas still could have driven down the field and scored or recovered a fumble or got a pick 6 or something, but likely not before Detroit took at least a little more time off the clock. That call changed the game. There is no doubt about that.
  14. I dunno Tank, I've been a Lions fan a looooong time and I don't remember any winless seasons in Miami.
  15. This Lions team is just frustrating to watch. For all of the talent on this team, they miss so many opportunities and make so many mistakes that it's hard to be confident in them going on the road in the playoffs. Even IF they manage to come back in this one.
