  1. I really like the name, and the connection it has to the city. I agree with others who say the colors just don't match the name. I like the Green and tan idea. Maybe include some of the bridge steelwork elements in the designs. From someone who hasn't done design for years, it feels like they decided to shoehorn a new name into the old identity making just enough alterations to say the designs are new.
  2. Lansing Community released a new crest, and the best crest explanation I've seen.
  3. Looks like the tablecloths for tonight still have gold (ETA: upon further review, I can't actually tell if that is yellow or gold, but it looks goldish to me), but the details in the ball are interesting. Curious if this is just for the tablecloth, or incorporated into the logo somehow.
  4. Every summer we took a trip to Milwaukee to see these beauties. And for us the Muskegon Lumberjacks were our local sports team.
  5. I don't know if this is a sign of something to come for the Brewers, or the Brewers completely ignoring the concept of a unified look, but the recent press conference has a blue and yellow ball and glove logo on name cards, with the gold and navy barley M in the background. It is a complete mess.
  6. It's actually a little depressing to go in there and realize that through the early '80s the Bucks were a dominate team in the NBA, but could never get over that hump to get back to the championship and now are cellar dwellers. They won the Midwest Division title every year between 1980-86 and made it to the Conference finals 3 times in that frame. Between the time that the Bucks were born ('68-'69) and Kohl bought the team ('85-'86) the Bucks missed the playoffs only 4 times, won 2 Conference and 1 NBA title. Since Sen. Kohl bought the team they have missed the playoffs 12 times. It's still shocking to me that the franchise as a whole is still 100 games over .500, despite their awfulness of late. Back on topic, I really like how the Bucks and Marquette handled their retired numbers. The Bucks with an image of the uniform worn, and Marquette with a picture, coloring and lettering of the uniform worn.
  7. Here are some Bucks, Marquette and Admirals banners from the Bradley Center. The Bucks divisional Banners surround the scoreboard, and the World Champions banner is at the south end. Marquette and Admirals banners are in opposite corners of the arena. Sorry for the quality I snapped them from my phone: Bucks Championship and Retired Numbers Bucks Divisional Championships Marquette Retired Numbers (you can also barely see the 1977 NCAA Championship Banner to the left of Al McGuire) Marquette non-NCAA Championship Banners Admirals Banners: I like the way both Marquette and the Bucks handled the retired numbers. I also appreciate that Marquette hasn't replaced the banners that say Marquette Warriors.
