  1. I like the Falcons traditional look and the more black the better IMO.I don't mind them in a red home jersey, but that should be the most red they have. If you go red jersey, it needs a black helmet. Red helmet/Red Jersey is the only way to really screw this up. It's very doubtful they would do this. Home: Black helmet, Black jersey, dull silver pants, noticeable red accents Road: White jersey, dull silver pants, either red or black numerals are fine here. The Falcons look good in a minimalist black/silver/red combination.
  2. I'm excited to see what they come up with. I feel like they've needed a new look since that Super Bowl.
  3. Titans fan here. Initially I hated the Titans redesign because I wanted a light blue helmet which would have been unique in the league. Of course I also had my own ideas for what the Titans should ideally look like so when the redesign was unveiled I naturally hated it because it didn't resemble anything close to my idea. Having said that, the new look has grown on me. Don't throw tomatoes at me but I kinda like them. It really isn't that bad and some slight polishes would fix them. The only combo I dislike is the Navy/Navy look but all non white monochromes are basically Satan to me. The numerals are way better than their dated old look. I wish they had started this run with the White/Light Blue combo as it looks good. In some ways the White/Navy look perfectly suits their style of play better than their other combos. In my opinion the Titans should ideally have a rather austere look to them anyway. If I had to rank their combinations it'd go 1a/1b. White/Light Blue or Light Blue/White 2. Light Blue/Navy 4. White/Navy 5. Navy/White
  4. Completely agree. Sea Unicorns is totally unnecessary when Narwhals is unique and alliterative. Of course Brandiose just had to have their trademark grimace on the logo with a harpoon bat. They've become so lazy it's crazy. I think it'd be easy to come up with a cool Narwhals logo that didn't fit the Brandiose formula.
  5. I'm late here but I love the branding for the Wichita Wind Surge. Not sure about the name but the home hat with Pegasus is a thing of beauty and the rest of the set looks good. It's nice to have a non brandiose set.
  6. Can't stand this. As much as I loved the Trash Pandas, I hate this as much. Osprey was a fine name and yes the logos have been dated to some extent but it is a very unique and beautiful bird. You could create a very classy and timeless package for Osprey. As someone mentioned, Paddlehead almost sounds like an insult. If they wanted to change to the Moose, that would have been fine too. This is Brandiose gone too far. I wish more minor league teams would partner with a cool outfit like Simon Studios. Their work for the Redbirds and Tarpons was fantastic. It didn't require a ridiculous name and 20 logos.
  7. As a fan I'd love to see the Predators switch to these logos and unis full time. I love the winter classic sweater,shoulder logo and full body logo. Obviously the Preds won't switch to these full time but I hope they keep this winter classic jersey as an alternate. I think these are timeless and will look good forty years from now. I think the current look will be dated in ten to twenty years. Here is how I'd like to see these logos if the Preds somehow did switch full time. Yellow home sweater with the shoulder logo as the main logo on the front. White road sweater- Full body logo on the front.. Winter classic as alternate.
  8. I have a Boll Wievels hat since I'm a huge Phillies fan. What a great identity that was and how sad that it's no longer around.
  9. I guess I'm one of the few who find the Rocket City Trash Pandas to actually be really good as it ties in the NASA angle with an animal that is extremely common to the area. I typically don't like the over the top Brandiose stuff, but the Trash Pandas is actually very well done. The logos and identity are fantastic. I'll buy three caps and a shirt. I think it's an iconic name/identity and it will not only last but flourish. For Wichita. I like the Lineman reference, but it seems odd for baseball. One creative idea I kinda liked was the 'Twisters' thus setting up a natural rivalry with the 'Storm Chasers'. Since it's the Marlins affiliate and Wichita is apparently a big aviation place, the 'Flying Fish' was another suggestion I saw. I think that's pretty good as I like when minor league teams make a subtle connection to the parent squad while creating their own identity. The only issue with that identity is are the Marlins and Wichita going to be together in a decade? The geography doesn't lead one to think it's likely to be a long term partnership and I've got to think Miami would eventually want something in the east and one would think there are other teams that fit Wichita better.
  10. No offense but you're naming local places in Concord, Kannapolis and Rock Hill that are part of greater Charlotte. It's not necessary as it'd be like including Franklin, Murfreesboro and Gallatin for Nashville. That should be simply implied. You are correct though that a Charlotte team also has strong regional potential throughout the Carolinas and it's certainly an underserved market for professional baseball. As for the bold, both cities are on a straight line to Nashville through I -65. Growing up in Nashville, games in Atlanta and Cincy were equidistant and manageable trips, and St. Louis wasn't much further. Even though I wasn't a fan of any of the three teams I went to all three places numerous times growing up. With a 162 game season,there is plenty of time for baseball fans in Birmingham and Louisville to check out a Nashville team even it's not their favorite team. While I agree that transferring loyalty in either city wouldn't happen overnight or possibly never happen en masse, a properly marketed winning Nashville team on the local TV nightly could develop a lot of fans in those markets. I would say Nashville is a more desirable place than either Cincy or Atlanta for a trip. There is more fun nightlife and things to do in Nashville than Cincy, and even though traffic is increasingly bad in Nashville, it's nothing like the logistical nightmare that is Atlanta.
  11. The rivalry with Memphis has cooled off to some degree. I think a MLB Nashville AAA team in Memphis could work today but 15 years ago it'd be dicey. What other market would you want to place the Nashville AAA team? The AA team would have a lot of great local choices in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Jackson or Huntsville. Ideally I think they'd pick Knoxville over the rest but all of those are good options.
  12. I'm biased because I'm a native Nashvillian but I think it's by far the best option for relocation/expansion. It's a growing prosperous city. The strength of a Nashville team isn't just its own market. A team in Nashville draws strongly from Knoxville, Chattanooga, Memphis, Huntsville, Birmingham, Louisville and all places in between. Portland offers nothing like that in terms of secondary markets nor in accessibility to the rest of the country for fans who might be driving through to see a game as part of a road trip. I've never really understood the Portland hype. I don't get a baseball vibe out of Portland at all, maybe Portlandia fooled me.
  13. I actually have a hat like this. It looks good.
  14. I went to a game there three years ago. It really is a wonderful ballpark. I get why the Rangers are getting a new retractable dome though. The weather in DFW is absolutely brutal in the summer and it really hurt an otherwise great viewing experience. The patch is nice.
  15. Phillies fan here. I like the 70-91 look, it is undoubtedly iconic. That look is so defined by its time that I think it'd be a mistake to use them for anything more than a weekly appearance. However if given a choice I much prefer the current uniforms they've been wearing. I think they are also classics and timeless. In fact I'd like to see them go to that looks predecessor and inspiration from the 1960s. I don't mind the 70s look making a once a week appearance. Anything more than that is too much. I do wish they'd wear the home pinstripe jersey with the zipper at home. To me it's the far superior jersey of that era between their home and road uni. It's somewhat bothersome to see the powder blues at home.
  16. As someone who absolutely hated the previous look, I really love this update. The home jersey is beautiful and the Miami nights theme is well thought out.
  17. It's a fairly serious downgrade from the 51's which was an identity that was above average but still had enormous untapped potential. As someone mentioned earlier, something cartoonish would have worked well here. It's Las Vegas, the brand is supposed to be fun and playful. I would have liked a bi-plane with a cartoonish pilot and LV marked somewhere on the logo. The colors are intriguing and pleasing, it doesn't scream Vegas to me and definitely an interesting choice for an Oakland affiliate since this is basically the Astros color scheme.
  18. I didn't think I'd say it but the Titans look has grown on me. Still wish they'd emphasize the columbia blue more but all in all I like the swords and getting rid of the white helmet. The navy-white-navy look is solid.
  19. As a Phillies fan I like the idea of branding the liberty bell more. I'd love to see it as white against a red backdrop.
  20. I'm glad it's finally receiving more usage. It's a nice, unique logo and I like the color of the hat.
  21. The Drifters is another name that would really fit Amarillo well.
  22. I'm shocked armadillos wouldn't be a contestant. It just seemed so natural. I like the Long Haulers the most but what kind of concept could you come up with for that? I'm surprised there is nothing weather related as Amarillo is prone to tornadoes and thunderstorms. The Twisters would have been cool but I realize the Storm Chasers have a monopoly on middle-american weather related themed baseball teams.
  23. I'm not sure if it got any notice here but the Clearwater Threshers have a new alt cap. I really like this and as a Phillies fan will definitely buy one.
  24. This is really the greatest sin of this set. The Titans had an opportunity to emphasize a shade of blue that would have made them unique and instantly recognizable in the NFL and instead they basically copied one of their biggest rivals. I think a columbia helmet, columbia jersey, white pants look would have been so much better.
  25. I couldn't agree more. Monochrome in the NFL should be banned. As a Titans fan with a preference for the light blue, this is a pretty tough set to take.
