  1. Oh boy. First time scrolling through concepts in awhile and I see this. My first criticism is how you give 1 sentence explanations for the names of the more obvious ones (like Boston and Toronto) yet for say Sacramento and Charlotte no explanation. Though I like to figure out reasons for names though. 

     

    Sacramento Kraken: Oh boy. Sacramento, one of my favorite cities to see concepts for and Kraken, one of my favorite names. Together. Why? THeyre not near the Bay or any ocean. There is the Sacramento River, but then something like River Monsters could fit. But hey, this is football and we see weird names all the time. As for the concept its pretty good, though gives me Sparky Chewbacca vibes (probably why you choose Sacramento now that I think about it) curious to see their uniforms as the colors are an interesting pick. 

     

    Toronto Lakers: Good logo, good team name. Not really much to say. Color scheme is good. 

     

    Boston Mariners: Probably one of the more solid ones here. The purple and light blue have always been a favorite of mine. Wonder how you'll implement the logo on the helmet

     

    Houston Voyagers: Literally nothing to say here, except, please let the helmet logo be the space ship. 

     

    London Royals: I kinda was hoping for a more unique name, however if the NFL moved there I see no reason for them to not do a royal/monarchy theme. 

     

    Winnipeg Blizzard: I'm assuming the token white-at-home team? Almost always a favorite. Though unsure how Winnipeg got a team if only 6 Canadian cities got a team. 

     

    Seattle Shockwave: Uh, not sure why but the name bothers me. But MJWalker's point also stands. 

     

    St Louis Legion: I have an idea for their helmet design but I won't mention it because its impractical. 

     

    Charlotte Flyers: ... Carolina Flyers fits better than Charlotte as Washington DC is closer to Kitty Hawk then Charlotte. Though if the logo was designed based off of cars "flying through the track" it'd make more sense for it being Charlotte. Really the only one I have major problems with. Also 2 teams with primary purple seems odd, even if the shades and secondaries are different. 

     

    LA Tides: Most underwhelming, it'd be fine if it was anything but LA. LA is either an already established brand or something extravagant not 2 tone blue. 

     

    Baltimore Warriors: The B in the Baltimore flag shield looks off with the way the pattern is, slight adjustment would help. Like the logos.

     

    Buffalo Polar Bears: Another 2 tone/mostly blue team? I just want to see the jerseys for them. I always liked the name Polar Bears or Polars but never really thought about it besides hockey in some capacity

  2. the division logos are interesting, I liked how you took slight symbolism in them and I love the keystone reference of my home state my only concern is how some people may not like the Confederate feeling to the Heartland. It'd be different if it was for just Alabama or Florida as its similar to their flags but I'm assuming its for multiple states, but you do you. Brooklyn looks interesting. I look forward to keeping up

  3. Since Colorado looks similar to Philly, what if you do purple and Burgundy? since the Rockies use purple and its a color usually associated with Colorado due to Pikes Peak and purple mountain majesty (which can also be used for Canada but also used with Colorado)

  4. Group A

    Pittsburgh Ironworks with Lauderdale as the Runners-up

     

    Group B 

    Triangle with Scranton as the Runners-up (insert Micheal Scott NOOOOOOO gif)

     

    Group C 

    Charleston Arsenal with Peaks as the Runners-up

     

    Group D 

    Baltimore with Ocala as the Runners-up

  5. Not sure if you're still doing these, but; 

     

    Cowboys Super Bowl's (71, 77, 92, 93, 95)

    Phillies Word Series (80 and 08) 

    San Jose Sharks Western Conference Championship (16) (trophy is called the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl)

    New York Lizards (lacrosse) Steinfeld Cup (01, 03, 15) 

    Toronto FC MLS Cup (17) and Canadian Cup (09, 10, 11, 12, 16, and 17)

     

    And if possible my favorite AFA and PHL teams from the forums here

    Nova Scotia Claymores Lewis Cup (1967)

    Cleveland Ghosts Victory Bowl (59 and 84)

    I'm sticking with the Metropolitans as my favorite but the Pilots definitely give them a run for their money. Maybe I just like art deco?

     

    I'm cold on the Evergreens and Sawbucks reminds me of the Pokemon so I wouldn't be able to take the team seriously in real life.

    I was thinking the same thing with the Evergreens and Sawbucks, though the Sawbucks identity is my favorite out of the current designs shown, I couldn't take a team called that seriously. 

  7. Should Roberto Clemente's number 21 be universally retired by the MLB? Why or why not?

     

    Information, in case you don't know

    Currently there are only 2 numbers in sports universally retired (Wayne Gretzky #99 in the NHL, and Jackie Robinson's #42 in the MLB)

    Gretzky's because he is the undoubtably best hockey player all time

    Jackie Robinson's because he was the first black player in the MLB (or at least since the AL was created) 

     

    Clemente while he wasn't the first hispanic player in the MLB, he was the first great one. He had over 1,400 runs, .317 average, and is one of the few 3,000 hits club (with 3,000 exactly). But despite his great play, he is remembered more for his off-field performance, he was known for helping out the needy and spending lots of time with fans and the less fortunate. It was this that lead to his death in 1972, during Christmas a earthquake hit Nicaragua and Clemente organized a plan to send supplies, he would hire a pilot and a plane and fly the supplies there, as well as himself. The plane crashed on New Years Eve 1972, Clemente's body was never found. 

     

    The argument against is that he has 'already been commemorated enough', MLB celebrates Roberto Clemente Day every year, as well as handing out the Roberto Clemente Award to the best humanitarian in baseball. And that if they did wouldn't then other players numbers get retired? Babe Ruth was the best player (batter and pitcher), Gehrig, Mays, Aaron, Cobb, Jeter, or even Ichiro being the first great (and really only potential HOF) to player in the MLB

     

    The argument for is that, while he wasn't the first hispanic player, he was the first great one and his contributions outside the sport will be unmatched, and that the league retired Robinson's number due to breaker the mold of the 'color barrier'. They say "Robinson opened a door for non-whites to play in the MLB, and Clemente created the bridge between whites and non-whites" So if the league is going to retire Robinson's shouldn't they retire Clemente's as well? 

     

     

    My opinion, the league should, but I can see why they wouldn't. But, I also feel that they should even if #21 is only retired by the NL
