    I concur with QCS above, but also, I think Towers is a bad nickname for a team. I think there are a lot of better options. 

    I also agree, might I propose The New York Zeniths? Zenith meaning, of course, the most powerful of the time or the tallest point in the sky. I think that could work well for a New York team and the Empire State Building logo is too nice to get rid of.

  2. I like the Duluth Zeniths over the rest of them. Twin Ports Zeniths sounds kind of weird to me. Zenith City (Twins maybe?) doesn't sound to bad to begin with but  it begins to dip into Brandiose style with the name. One name I've always seemed to use for some fictional baseball leagues I've created is the Duluth Superiors. Always a funny name to me. Just thought I'd toss my hat into the ring on that.

  3. I know it's probably not going to be this way but I would hope these "city edition" jerseys would only be worn on city holidays or other dates of importance like that. Two to five times a season at most. I would be fine with that. 

     

    If the Brewers down the line get in on the action, I could see them rolling out something like this.

    First Look at the 2021 World Series Logo

    March 2, 2021 - 22:29 PM

    As the sights and sounds of Spring Training flood sports highlight shows, the last few days of winter pass us by, and we all begin to look forward to Summer … Major League Baseball gives us all a glimpse of what we can expect in the Fall. Yes, earlier this

    Well, I guess this confirms it.

    What? How? Why?

    When you make a jersey update, you're usually trying to relive a golden era, usher in a new one, or make a change that modernizes your brand or attracts a new demographic. 

    Seriously, what benefit is derived from removing the waist stripes? They don't look visually better, non-fans won't notice the change, it goes against the idea of not touching a classic, and it looks like an unfinished practice sweater. 

    How in the world, seriously, does it look better?

    I started to watch more Devils hockey after the Adidas change. It's been the look I resonate with since I started watching more. If they re-added the waist stripe, I wouldn't mind. As long as they never touch the logo, I'll be okay.

    Would probably be a different story today with things like trademarks. Heck, you don't even have to be in the same field to get a trademark issue with similar/same names (Vegas/Army trademark battle as an example). Back when the twin Pirates/Giants were around, trademark laws weren't nearly as protective. While I can't say the same for Canadian law, I feel as if the general idea would be the same.

     

    Of course this is a concept, so the issue really doesn't matter. But I feel as if the Hockey Remparts would be opposed to the CFL infringing on a already-established name.

    Maybe for the sake of the concept, we just say the hockey Remparts split for the Bahamas and they gave the name to the new CFL team.

    Yea, this right here. I'm not a hunter, so forgive my lack of knowledge as I've only seen this in movies and whatnot, but folks clacking together to smaller antlers like they do to attract them. 

    I could see them fake rattling antlers and elk calls being used like how cowbells and horns are used around the league. Their sitting on a little goldmine for fans here with the Elk name if you ask me.

    It was mentioned earlier in the threat, but I still like the idea of some sort of elk horn design for the helmet, with the EE logo moved to the shoulders. 

    I just checked up Edmonton Elk on the google and got this as a result from an apparent twitter user. I don't think it looks bad as an alternate.

    Elk antlers at a game? That triggers my PTSD of getting hit in the eye with a waving rally towel years ago at the Liberty Bowl. No Thanks!

     

    Elk is the clear favorite though.

    I'm sorry to hear that. Maybe, something like this instead...

  9. Here's my list with explanation

     

    1. Elk - I can already imagine people showing up with huge elk antlers to games. I think that's fun.

    2. Elkhounds - My buddy (who doesn't care for the CFL, just knows I like it) said Elkhounds sounds cool. Dog that eats Elks. Going to have to get rid of Nanook and replace him with a dog though.

    3. Evergolds - I know a lot of people are upset that Eskimos is gone and I think that Evergolds kind of sounds the most like the old name.

    4. Evergreens - Not a bad name, not a great one. I wouldn't be upset if they changed to it. Maybe a change of the colour scheme to more of an "Ever-Green".

    5. Eagles - Can't support a team with the same name of a team from Philly.

    6. Elements - Just not a fan man. Imagine the headlines when they lose. "Edmonton out of their Elements with this loss"

    7. Eclipse - This is professional football team, not a twilight novel. 


    Anyway, I hope they change to the drop shadow-less logo they keep using on social media.

    That's just my take.

  10. I got some strange thoughts here but Tampa Bay got some options to weight here.

    For wearing red:

    -Won last Super Bowl in red.

    -First super bowl team to play in their own stadium for the super bowl.

     

    For wearing white:

    -Won last two playoff games in white.

    -Remember that Tom Brady wears white in Super Bowls and usually wins?

     

    Yeah but seriously, they should go with the red jersey.

    Saw this jersey today on the Twins Twitter page and didn't recognize this jersey. It is a Majestic brand and not Nike so not sure if it was just for the photo op. I thought I heard a rumour floating around that the Twins were bringing back the "M" hat, could this be a new Jersey to go with it?

    Kind of looks like a batting practice jersey from a couple years back.

  12. I'm probably a little late to the party here but, maybe if you wanted to stick with the international side of the IAAF but keeping with Milwaukee and Louisville you could do the Milwaukee Bavarians (because of the german heritage in the city) and the Louisville Kings (because of the city being named after the french king). Your call, I just thought I'd pitch my ideas to you.
