    The recent discussions surrounding the possible name-changes of the Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, and Texas Rangers got me thinking about teams that changed their name without relocating. You could think of this as the sequel to a thread I did on here ~6 weeks ago, for teams that kept their nickname after relocating.

    https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/121884-teams-that-relocated-but-kept-their-nickname/

     

    Before I begin, I wanted to clarify some of my ground-rules:

    1. If a team changed names multiple times, they were evaluated as a group.

    2. On the flip side, teams were only allowed one pre-WWI name change. I don't intend to write about the 8 name changes the Dodgers went through in their first 30 years.

    3. The teams have to have been in the top league (or co-top league) at the time of the name change and the franchise must still be in existence.

    4. This does not include identifier/location changes without moving (think what the Angels have been doing). However, if a team changed both the location and nickname without moving they count (This only happens once).

     

    I found 32 eligible changes from the 5 major-leagues + plus surviving AFL, ABA, and WHA teams. 4 of these will be unranked because they deal with Native American team names and I don't want this thread to end up locked.

     

    Also, a word on how I'm "grading" the changes. In general, I'm trying to view things as when the change happened. Some brands may have gone on to become iconic, but are near the bottom (7 of the most iconic baseball nicknames occupy the bottom 9 spots. Side note, this list is very baseball heavy with 13 teams), others near the top, not so much. I usually look a the following things when evaluating the change:

    1. Why did they get rid of the old name? Esp. Did the fans want a new name?

    2. How much did people like the old name? Was it around for 10 years and the only name the team had known? Was it only there for a year and the latest in a long string of changes? How successful was the team with the old name?

    3. How much better is the new name? Does it have historical significance? Is it unique? Does it tie into the area? Note: Of the 32 teams I ranked, I think 31 of them were an improvement. When teams rebrand, they set out to make themselves seem better, not worse. The real question is, who did it best?

     

    The unranked teams will be up shortly.

    Who Said the Rangers were changing their name? Where did you get that from


  2. Although now I'm not getting in on either my laptop or phone. How come it switched for a single day? Was it a Canada Day exclusive (they put "Happy Canada Day!" at the top of yesterdays front page) and If so why did the whole site get changed instead of just adding the banner on?

    NBA not allowing names of deceased victims of police brutality on jerseys, per Marc J. Spears

    And here I was thinking they'd do anything to please the NBPA lol


  4. I always go to the main site to get to the boards, because it is saved in my frequently visited sites, and I noticed that the main site was completely revamped! I think it looks cooler honestly, am I the only one getting it or not? Is it here too stay? Felt like bringing this up somewhere.


  5. I don't have much of a problem with it, I just wish that they always replace the last names with the statements. It'll kind of be like the MLB Player's Weekend I feel like. It's annoying that the timing made it so this will last through the playoffs, I feel like this would be more of a regular season thing. Then again, it's frustrating that this is something that is done in the first place, can't we just treat everyone with respect.

    So in some ways, I guess, it's an upgrade?  Going to a minimalistic label and letting the unsual bottles be more of the brand is a bit clever.

    That brown color on the bottles (I've never seen it before in real life) looks awful

     

    Still want to stay on topic, but my favorite flavor of Gatorade/Powerade is definitely white cherry (Cherry in general is my favorite fruity flavor)

    I feel that! A couple things I was curious about:

    Where are you getting Miami in throwback for Week 1 on the road? Last season they wore it at home in Week 2

    Shouldn't Week 15 have Philly in green pants like last season?

    How are that that many games with Dallas in Color Rush? Although it looks awesome paired up with Philly midnight green and I hope that actually happens for a change.

    A: Miami wore the throwback for the 3rd away game last year (against the Steelers) but since the 3rd away game is at the 49ers and their white throwbacks, I swapped the all aqua and the throwback whites. A little confusing, but I know what I'm doing

    B: I must of messed up there, I'm not perfect lol

    C : Dallas didn't wear the standard away uniforms until Week 16 last year, the first time the wore white on the road was Color Rush against the Patriots, so all of the early road games are Color Rush because they were closer in the year to the Week 12 game vs New England compared to Week 16. Also helps that the Cowboys have my favorite color rush

    D : I also added a couple color vs color games that I thought looked good, such as Rams blue vs 49ers red, and Chargers powder vs Broncos orange

    Glad the Jets finally went back to green endzones. I am still waiting on when they can have personal logos at midfield though


  9. I did a little slideshow of what the season looked like uniform-wise if each team wore the same combination as the previous year's game. Hard to explain, but here's an example.

    Green Bay Packers

    Home Game 1 2019: Green/Gold vs Vikings:                                         Home Game 1 2020: Green/Gold vs Lions

    Home Game 2 2019: Navy/Gold vs Broncos                                          Home Game 2 2020: Navy/Gold vs Falcons

    Home Game 3 2019: Green/Gold vs Eagles                                          Home Game 3 2020: Green/Gold vs Vikings

    Home Game 4 2019: White/White vs Lions                                            Home Game 4 2020: White/White vs Jaguars

    Home Game 5 2019: Green/Gold vs Raiders                                         Home Game 5 2020: Green/Gold vs Bears

    Home Game 6 2019: Green/Gold vs Panthers                                       Home Game 6 2020: Green/Gold vs Eagles

    Home Game 7 2019: Green/Gold vs Redskins                                       Home Game 7 2020: Green/Gold vs Panthers

    Home Game 8 2019: Green/Gold vs Bears                                            Home Game 8 2020: Green/Gold vs Titans

    I basically did that for all 32 NFL teams, home and away, and I made some adjustments so the teams with new uniforms would have them in my presentaion.

    Houston Texans - All white for Baltimore Ravens. They don't have a consistent pattern on the battle red or color rush jerseys. It's anyone's guess what games those will be.

     

     

    The texans usually wear red around either early December or their 7th game, so my guess is either the Colts week 13 or the Bengals week 16, I'm predicting the Bengals.

    Red - Wisconsin

    Orange - Virginia Tech

    Yellow - Packers

    Green - Bucks

    CHARLOTTE HORNETS  (1974-1981, 1995-2020. Played as Carolina Hornets from 1982-1994)

    Play in the Southern Division with Birmingham, Florida, Jacksonville and Memphis.

     

    The Hornets have often been described as a nomadic team.  After moving from New York midway through the WFL's inaugural season, the Hornets have played at 4 different stadiums.  They spent 8 years playing in American Legion field, but the small stadium quickly became one of the worst in the league.  In 1982 the team relocated to the Triangle region and renamed themselves the Carolina Hornets.  Between 1982 and 1995 the team had two stints at NC State's Carter-Finley Stadium, and even played 2 years at Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium.  When the WFL and the city of Charlotte agreed on building a new stadium in the Queen City, the Hornets returned and have played to packed houses in Charlotte ever since.  Many believe the move was made to head off the NFL's intentions to expand to Charlotte, a move which never materialized as the NFL found itself forced to expand back into LA once the Rams and Raiders both left town. 

     

    The Hornets logo remains unchanged since the 1975 season, but the uniforms have changed quite a bit since their early days.  Charlotte is often cited as one of the first professional teams to don a "unitard" look, wherein the home and away uniforms are the same color from jersey to socks.  This is heightened even more on the road when the Hornets don yellow from helmet to shoes.  Charlotte is the only team in the league not to have a white jersey option after receiving a dispensation from the league office to use yellow as its "light" jersey back in 1982. 

     

    In addition to the Unitard look, the repeated motif of the double chevron or double stripe is found throughout the uniform, including the color-contrast sleeves on the jersey.  And, of course, as do all WFL teams since 2002, Charlotte has its city name emblazened on the chest of their jersey.

    Next up among our 12 Charter franchises, Chicago's home town team. 

    If you are capable of designing logos, I'd love to see the Hornets with a modern animal logo like the Panthers and other teams with them, that would probably be what Charlotte would do if the league lasted this long.

    This is exactly why they did it. Some goober on their design team was probably super into the culture and figured that to be "TRULY LA" the team needed to do that. Make the jersey look like Off White and Supreme stuff! Hell yeah! That's not gonna be stupid!

     

    A skateboard brand has influenced an NFL uniform. Think about that.

    Of course it was a LA team that would embrace rich culture on their uniforms

    I think the fact you have to play with URLs indicate that it’s something they did for their own amusement, not intended for public consumption.  

    I found it out because I wanted to see how the new uniforms looked on the site. Part of being bored during quarantine lol

    Despite what many on this board would recommend, few teams are reducing uniform options. Most are expanding. I am surprised LA didn't go with complete mix and max options as they have no plans for bone on color. I have a feeling NE will breakout alt pants with no fanfare this year too. 

    I saw that GUD (gridiron uniforms database http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/GUD/controller/controller.php?action=main) added the new uniforms to their site, (if you click on the 2019 games on a certain combo, you have to change the 2019 in the image link to 2020, and you can change the letter after it to switch uniform combinations) and obviously it could just be just in case, but they have the Pats with white pants as well.

    2020_NE_D.png2020_NE_B.png

    Honestly looks sooooo much better compared to the navy pants.

    They also have orange pants for the Browns deep in the archives.

    Also just noticed that there's a stupid 1946 mark on the back of the inner collar 😐 (same goes with the Pats too, really man?)

    I won't argue with that. My top 5 color schemes are Redskins, Dolphins, Steelers, Panthers(electric blue is lovely), and Seahawks(navy and neon green is very underrated).

    Unpopular opinion, I think the Seahawks should have royal, wolf gray, and neon green as their colors. These work really well imo.
