  1. Yeah I love the retro shoulder hoop when it started at the rib cage/under the arm I hope that not liking the ram horns on the sleeve is an unpopular opinion, its a reasonably iconic jersey. Spare me the semantics on the horns not being on the shoulders of the animal, its a design element, and it's very effective. Did you know they're also not actually Rams playing on the field? But I will say, I get the malaise when it comes the current throwbacks. If you half-ass em, they look kinda stupid. Like little curly cues. Either do 'em right, or don't do 'em at all. (Although that would still be a mistake.)
  2. Love all of these. I loved the huddles as a kid. I had a vikings one forever. I had a coloring book with all of them in it, I wish I still had it somewhere.
  3. The money is on St. Louis according to MN Hockey Legend Lou Nanne, who is well connected here and in the NHL.
  4. I love it. Fresh and daring Rangers script. It's a departure, but has a subtle nod to the past. Love the cuffs! And yes gentlemen, I like this Powder Blue too. It's a part of baseball history, and was just wrapping up in the 80s when I fell in love with the game.
  5. Finally. As a big Twins fan, this has always been my favorite combo. Baby/Navy/Red SHOULD be our color scheme. Its a great, underused combo. (St. Louis also looks great for the same reasons.) This is probably the 2nd most popular jersey at most games I go to, and will be an absolute boon to Merch sales. I'd expect Nike (who has always made a lot of baby blue gear for the Twins) to push them to add it permanently. That would be a lot with Kasota Gold, but money talks.
  6. Yeah...I have zero problem with this. I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, we got a BiG. I like the straight lines, and I can justify it as a weird serif combining. And if you want to put your betting money on a reason they connected them, I assume it's easier to embroider that in 3D for Nike/New Era. I've had to update a logos based on this concern more than once. When things get little and sharp, those poofy parts get real tough to fabricate.
  7. So Cuban's nephew design this, errr?
  8. Just found a full authentic Purple 84 Patterson Vikings Jersey for $9 at Unique thrift store in MN. It was less then terrible Chinese knockoff Adrian Petersons in the RBK 07-13 jerseys. Now I need to know where I can find someone who does Vikings nameplates and-switch that you Moss. I don't care if he never played in that jersey. Could do I've Smith Jr.-but 84 in purple is always moss to me.
  9. I'll second this. When Nike truncated the sleeve stripes the jersey lost a little bit more than just the sleeves.
  10. It really is terrible. The spacing of black and yellow between themselves is all over the place, and just creates a visual riddle for the eye. Young designers - when you're making (especially 1 & 2 color) logos, consistency in spacing between elements is crucial. It doesn't need to be the same by any means - but it should have some uniformity. The five main elements (4 parts and oval) are all over the place. It looks like a messy room.
  11. As a NorthStars fan, this. The "history" belongs to the city and its fans, not to the owner who moved it. I wish every move was treated like the Ravens/Browns
  12. If you want a deep dive of great photos, check out Lets Play hockey's smugmug
  13. Nice. I grew up in east Burnsville- went to Apple Valley. Can't wait for the old Lake Confrence!
  14. These would be bad FANTASY logos. Only nepotism could get that place the work it does. Its consistently piss-poor. I'm in the industry, I hate :censored:ting on other people's work, but its frustrating when others can do so much better, for so much less money.
  15. This one got me until recently- The Denver Pioneers had this hawk logo on the shoulders of their hockey sweaters- and always thought it was it was a Davy Crockett coon skin cap.
  16. Oh this is the JETS. They are totally going to go heavy on adding Black or Anthracite. I'd be shocked if they didn't biff this up.
  17. My good buddies got a sneak peak of the Wild 3rd concepts in October- as him and another friend are split super good season tickets and they had a little focus group. Im going to transcript his texts. I haven't seen or heard anything so take it with a grain of salt: "Got to go see a couple of the Wilds concept jerseys for next year. Black. With the Minnesota Script from the green jersey" "The captain c was in the state of MN patch." "Black embroidered star on the middle of the arm, but same color as the black sleeve so not too prominent " "black gold and green. Black and a muted gold on the script." I'd. shocked if these actually got picked, they were just a little focus group, and they probably have 25 different options and only showed them a few of them.
  18. This is a great simile for the late 2010s. An over-corporatized facsimile of a bad, but earnest trend from the 90s, made unnecessarily more sinister because of "modern times." A long, wet fart would be a more original composition.
  19. I like it. It's weird and doesn't seem like the Twins, but I'll probably buy it as a fan.
  20. I quoted you twice because that's how double-bad that "I" is. Nice redux, @SFGiants58
  21. I wish they would have used the blue tomahawk on the Grays. Its too much red. Otherwise a near-flawless update to me.
