  1. The Jets USA Today blog had an offer for fans to design their ideas for what the Jets will/should do when they get new uniforms next season. This was my entry. The new Primary logo brings back a modified version of the 80s futuristic jet logo but places it in the oval that's been part of the Jets identity from jumpstreet. Double Green was a happy accident when I was trying to incorporate the Titans gold I selected the wrong oval from a previous layer and it showed a Kelly outline instead of Gold. The decision to use a Kelly Outline with Hunter interior rather than the reverse came from the Color Rush jerseys as a lighter outline seemed to give a sort of shine to me. The main inspiration from the color choices in the striping came from the Jets color rush which is one of the best in the league in my opinion. While the green pants are shown with the home greens, that would be a rarity to with but the road whites could pair with the whites or greens.
  2. Hey all! I've been wanting to do a series regarding the NFL that was a no-rules free for all where team history doesn't matter, and everything is brand new. So instead I decided on the current series, based upon the idea above, but with a few rules. THE RULES 1. The uniform must be brand new. The design may never have been worn previously by the franchise. 2. A team's uniform must be "drastically different." i.e. Obviously different to the average person on this site. 3. Elements may be taken from current or former uniforms, and may be mixed and matched, so long as a new uniform is created. 4. Logos may remain the same. This is mostly a uniform project. With that being said, get ready to see some of your favorite untouchable uniforms get touched a lot! First up, the New York Jets! Since the Jets are receiving a new design next year, it felt fitting to begin with them. For the Jets, I decided to follow the path well travelled, and create a double green look, to symbolize the two general eras of Jets football. The main feature of the uniform is the shoulder yoke/ucla stripe combination upon the shoulders. This combination pays homage to the current and Namath era looks while being unique in its own right. The away uniform features a double colored yoke, with the sleeves a dark green, and the shoulder area the kelly green color. The decision here was mostly for color balance, and because I simply liked the look better than a simple mirror of the home uniform. The helmet features an updates "JETS" plane logo featuring the new custom wordmark. In my mind when I think of jets, I think of the Nighthawk Stealth Bomber. Therefore, I wanted to take the angular look of those jets, and incorporate them into the lettering as well as the speeding jet in the helmet logo. Finally, the helmet, pants and socks all feature a Dark-White-Kelly-White-Dark color scheme.
  3. I am starting this thread after a long break from the forum. I am setting out to fix rather than completely revamp each teams' look. Not only will I mock-up uniforms, but also merchandise and a field. In addition I have placed 2 restrictions on my concepts. 1.) Teams can have up to 2 different helmets. 2.) Teams can have up to 4 different jerseys (including throwbacks). Teams: Arizona Cardinals (Updated) Atlanta Falcons (Updated) Baltimore Ravens Buffalo Bills Carolina Panthers Chicago Bears Dallas Cowboys Denver Broncos I will start in alphabetical order with the Arizona Cardinals. Their current uniform is a mess of piping and looks incredibly dated. My idea was to restore a classic feel to a historic franchise, while adding a modern twist. I left the helmet untouched, because in my opinion it is key part of their identity. I sublimated the Arizona flag into the uniforms to establish a unique and regionalized look for the team. The black alternate takes this to an extreme but stays in line the the home and away. I also included a faux-back look that incorporates elements of past uniforms while still fitting in with their current identity. C&C is appreciated, next up will be the Atlanta Falcons.

    NY Jets

    im hoping when the Jets roll out new unis next year, there wont be any drastic changes. i think they have a great foundation and need to take the same approach as the Lions and Vikings; just put a new spin on the classic. i'd love to see them adopt a new green that isn't Kelly Green. it's a little too expected, so my choice is "Bright Emerald" which is a name i totally just made up, but at least its unique in the NFL. i think the solve for some of these shoulder stripe issues they have now is to move it all down the sleeve. it's important that the contrast areas are bold and impactful, so i would expand that stripe element outside the shoulder seams just a little (think of the Browns or Seahawks stripe technique). finally, have to make the NY-oval the primary logo. large, bold shapes fit this design much better than the overly detailed logo they have now. i always like to think of the alternates when making new uniform decisions too. considering the leagues 1 helmet rule, any alternate would have to work with a white shell. i didn't want to add a black or gray jersey or anything too out of character here, so my alternate option is a throwback. the 1963 uniform gives people something they haven't seen in a long time and provides a darker green jersey option that fans would be more accustomed to.
  5. FINISHED CONCEPTS: Cavalry FC (Calgary) FC Edmonton Forge FC (Hamilton) Halifax Wanderers Pacific FC (Vancouver Island) Valour FC (Winnipeg) York 9 FC Fury FC (Ottawa) CF Québec ----- Hey! Long time no see! ? Since it's been announced that Canada is getting its own first tier soccer/football league, I was pretty stoked when they announced Winnipeg as one of the cities to get a team (since I live in MB and all that jazz). So I decided to make some kits for all the teams that are in the league (so far): To start things off: Here's Cavalry FC! (Top is home, Bottom is away) Template created by Michael Danger aka Raysox C+C appreciated!
  6. An idea recently popped in my head: Would it be possible to operate a football league where the quarterback system is similar to how pitchers are used in baseball? Instead of a QB depth chart you have your QB1 (Starter), one or two relief QBs, and then a "closer" QB who specializes in the two minute offense. The starter QB would have to play at least 2.5 quarters to be considered the winning QB and the closer QB would have to maintain the lead from the time they enter the game until the end to be credited with the equivalent of a save. Relief QBs would be used to help get their team gain the lead and maintain it until the closer QB enters the game.
  7. Hadn't had any good concept ideas for a few months, largely because the time I'd normally use for them, I've instead focused on custom teams and boards for Techno Bowl (hell, I've actually gotten a game in ), but a couple days ago, I doodled something down that I thought could work for Missouri. A little bit later, here it is. Inspired by Faurot Field's diamond endzones, the helmet and pants feature diamonds in lieu of stripes. The sleeve numbers are also on a diamond, though early on, I decided against doing the same on the torso for obvious reasons. The diamond theme continues with the alts, though kicked up a notch in different ways. The alt helmet encases the tiger in a black diamond, and the dark alt uses an elongated diamond on the torso, with ghosted tigers on the sleeves. The light alternate, as you can see, would probably look more at home at the Kentucky Derby...or, now that I think about it, Murray State. It should go without saying, but people don't read posts anymore :p ...the alt helmet can be worn with either of the main jerseys and vice versa, the pants can be swapped, and rebates suck. Post, speak, and yell words.
  8. As the CFL season rolls around, I decided to create uniforms for all of the CFL teams for Adidas' Primeknit uniforms because I think they look better than the mesh uniforms currently being worn. The template I am using is a little outdated, but here is what Adidas's new A1 Primeknit uniforms, which will be worn by NCAA teams this fall, look like. Toronto Argonauts
  9. I posted to the forum for the first time in years and ended up making a new template. This is spliced from three templates - the bulk of it comes from tbdaniels15. That user has not been on the forum for some time, but bucksfan5 had posted a .psd template that still had a valid link. I copied some of my old template (the cleats) from a template posted by andrewharrington, and the gloves and general layout are all my doing. I still need to do some layer tweaking, and I'm thinking of doing setting up some preset stripe layers. So I'm not just quite ready to post the new Photoshop template itself, but I have enough of it set that I figured I'd post this reduced resolution preview to get some C&C before I go ahead and finish up the file. The actual template is 3300 x 2550, or 11" x 8.5" at 300 dpi. I don't usually make templates, but I like having it print-ready, down to the half-inch print-safe border.
  10. Thought I would take my shot at "fixing" the Jags, Titans and then maybe a few other NFL teams that just don't feel right to me. First up, the Jags. They want simple, so I give them a simple uniform but not so simple as to look like a Div-2 college. Teal is the primary, black the secondary, and if they feel they must, they can go unitard with all black or all white on a hot August day. I envision the primaries as White jersey-black pants and teal jersey-white pants. Note the angled stripes are on the sleeve cuff, pants and socks.
  11. I've been toying with this project on and off for years. It's something I do every now and again to unwind, and I really wish I put more priority on it, but I digress. Anyway, I've always felt the NFL has demonstrated a need for a minor league. Arguably, the NCAA fills that need, but while college football no doubt produces talent, the NFL lacks the ability to send players back to the minors. Further, I think we may be reaching a point where the NCAA is becoming obsolete. From television contracts, to video games, to merchandise, NCAA football generates billions in revenue. And yet only a small fraction of schools actually reap a profit from their football programs. Football is a sport that epitomizes the pay-to-play idiom, and unsurprisingly, the schools that generate the most money are also the most well-funded. The fact that that funding is allocated out of university budgets is not without controversy. And to exacerbate that issue, the NCAA restrictions on player compensation border on exploitation. In theory, student athletes are compensated via college scholarships, but many schools float student-athletes with made-up course. NCAA scandals are numerous, and it may be past time to separate athletics from academics. This project images a professional league to replace college football, with operations modeled roughly off of minor league baseball. I have a four-tier minor league system in mind, with 128 teams. Some are in markets formally served by the NCAA, and some... not so much. I know 128 sounds like a lot (and it is) but between Division-I FBS, Division-I FCS, Division II, and Division III, it's not like the NCAA doesn't have hundreds of teams. My school of thought is that allowing each NFL team to maintain four developmental teams, in theory, it would eliminate the fierce competition in the NFL draft while paying players for what would otherwise be their college years. This means the NFL owners would pay more of a flat rate across the board for new players rather than the ludicrous draft pick bonuses we have in practice today. Also, I have always held the Green Bay model of ownership in high regard, and I envision something of a hybrid system, with each host market having at least some percent owned at the city, county, or state/provincial level, and some percentage of ownership available for shareholders, while the bulk percentage is held by private ownership. This would allow host markets at least some control over relocation bids, but also allow at least some validity for the use of public money. As a matter of course, every US state and nearly every Canadian province is granted at least one team. National Football League I have very little in mind for the NFL itself. I would like to rebrand Washington and Kansas City (my girlfriend is Cherokee, so we refrain from the R-word). And while it won't really impact this project, I did opt to make a new map of the NFL. I based the four tiers of my minor league on the east-vs-west system used in the NBA and NHL. Football and baseball are the only major-league sports to use the National-American conference system (that I know of), because both leagues expanded by merging with competing organizations. So more for my own what-if curiosity than anything else, I created this realignment map. Personally, I find the new divisions that resulted rather intriguing, but that's just my own biased opinion. A lot of old rivalries would be upset, but I'm curious how making the NFL divisions more geographically oriented would ultimately impact the league. Alpha Football League The Alpha League consists of the largest markets not served directly by the NFL. The minimum NFL salary is about half a million, but here, the salary would be about a quarter million. This would equate to the NCAA Div-I FBS, with players that have worked their way up from the Beta league. San Diego and St. Louis once again become host to professional football franchises. And I ultimately decided for sake of this project to absorb the CFL into this project. Notably, I granted a franchise to Mexico. The conversion rate for the Mexican peso is not as strong as the rate between American and Canadian dollars, plus American football has limited popularity outside the United States. As a result, I opted to place the sole Mexican franchise where lies the strongest support. Monterrey, it turns out, has the highest affinity for the NFL in Mexico. Beta Football League The Beta League simply follows the above pattern with the largest markets not served in the Alpha League. The minimum salary would be $125K, and would consist of players that have finished their time in the Gamma League. It would equate to the Div-I FCS. The only real note to the Beta League is that it includes Hawaii. I had some concerns on remoteness, but the NCAA finances transportation for game in Hawaii, so assuming all operational costs were covered by the NFL (an entity that made an estimated $14B in 2017), then travel expenses for smaller markets becomes less of a concern. Gamma Football League Minimum salary in the Gamma League drops to $62,500, higher than the national median income, but we're getting down to blue-collar football here. These are the players that have made it a year or two in the Delta League and have made their first jump up the ranks. Delta Football League This is the bottom of the barrel, with media markets down to about three hundred thousand on average, with the smallest market being Casper, Wyoming. I opted to include a team in The Bahamas, as the sport is growing in popularity there and it would increase exposure to American Football in the Caribbean. And Anchorage, while by far the northernmost city in this project, is purportedly not much worse in winter than Seattle, with the surrounding oceans mitigating much of the harsher Alaskan winters. With a minimum salary down to $31,250, this would be the league that recruits players directly out of high school and takes walk-on try-outs. It would be comparable to Div-III, essentially the Single-A Short Season league of professional football. Assuming a player plays one year in each league, they'd earn roughly half a million over four years before signing with the NFL. And at any time, whether for salary cap reasons or recovery from injury, the NFL would have the ability to send players down to the minors. On a final note, I have concepts in mind for about half these markets, so I'm open to suggestions. EDIT: I apologize for the frequent edits since posting. I'd written the entire post in HTML... only to find that the forum displays HTML as naked code, which wasn't my intention. I didn't have access to my computer till this morning and my phone browser was rather temperamental with the post editor. EDIT: Replaced images since I'd stupidly mixed up Chattanooga and Knoxville in my map. EDIT: Changed cities in the Delta League Map.
  12. As many of you already know, I still play NCAA Football 14 and can't wait for another game to come out. Not that it's likely with EA at this point, but a man can dream. That being said, one of the major issues I've always had with the NCAA franchise, is that beyond FBS, they don't really care about FCS and lower. Up until the release on the PS3 and XBOX 360, the game did use to include FCS teams, but dropped them completely when they did move to the new hardware. They eventually made Teambuilder as a was of making up for the lack of FCS teams, but it really didn't. Point is that FCS, D2, D3, NAIA, and whoever else didn't get any love and representation in the games. Hypothetically speaking, should EA or another developer come out with a NCAA football video game, would it be feasible for them to include FCS, etc all teams in the game? See what I'm thinking is that with the current generation hardware and beyond (PS5?) it should be possible to create the 600+ college football teams for play in the game. Wether this is on the disk or DLC, I think I can and should be done. I'm curious what everyone else things, particularly those of you who know more about video gaming that I do. Is it indeed possible to do it and if so, would you want it? I think a game where you can play as any college team with properly recreated uniforms, stadiums and such would be great. But does anyone else find value in playing as a D3 school in a video game?
  13. Since there seems to be such a thread does not exist, I thought that a topic. Would be very interesting. So ... what soccer jerseys presses do you own? I: Lazio Rome (2004) Inter Milan (fake ^^) (2005 or so) Arsenal (fake) (Henry) (03/04) Tunisia (Dos Santos) (06/07) Cameroon (Foé) (03/04) Olympique Lyon 3rd (Juninho) (06/07) Real Madrid (Robinho) (07/08) Austria Wien (Sweepstakes, Random Football Prize) (05/06 or 04/05) Rapid Wien away (Fabiano) (07/08) Romania (06/07) Spain (06/07) Spain (Torres) (07/09) England away (06/07) Portugal (Ronaldo) (07/09) As Rome (Totti) (07/08) Inter Milan 100 years jubilee jersey (07/08) with the imprint after they became master again in 2008: I Campioni siamo noi - 16 Austria (Vastic) (07/09) Here, I also share a friend's collection! how about it? Anyway, I think they are great!!!
  14. Hello everyone its been quite a while since I've posted anything on here because of school and other things but as of recent I've had the itch to get back into taking the time to create these concepts. Now the real reason why I'm posting this is that I have some other concept ideas but I wanted to see how my Adidas template looks. Georgia Tech finally moves on from Russell and moves to Adidas (some people may say this a downgrade, but I personally like Adidas) and this is my rendition of what Georgia Tech should look like in my eyes. Home Away Alternate I'll be posting later on tonight my Washington/Adidas concept but in the meantime any thoughts on the concept? For some reason, my images don't look great and are not expandable so I posted links to get a better image. And before anyone asks I will possibly make this template available to download but not as of right now
  15. Well its been promised for years and I finally finished the league last night! I will post two teams today then the rest next week. The concept behind this for those that have not followed my fictional league MLF, is that the MLF decided they needed a developmental league but did not want to brand it as such. They came up with MLF Spring League as a branding. There are eight teams one for every 4 teams in the MLF. The design of the league would be to name a managing partner that each club could agree on with equal investments coming from each team. The results have been pretty good so far. Here is the league logo.
  16. With the new Miami Dolphins set a mere week away the time is running out to get concepts of what they could do in before it becomes what they should've done. I personally am a fan of the Dolphins current logo and unis, it's undeniable the fanbase longs for a return to the former set. I made the colors a blend of the 1974, 1996 and current logo to keep the colors lighter. The original plan was to keep the lineless look of the current logo and apply the '96 shape but the logo needs an outline to push the motion and tie down the teal. The script retains a retro/deco flow that I think is vital for any Miami team look. The shell returns to pure white with a teal facemask. The uniforms keep similar pant striping to the current set but I pull striping from the popular throwbacks. For the alt uniforms I use the dark blue rather than the orange as a matter of preference through I may draft up an orange version later since it is definitely more "Miami". Insert NikeSpeak about new era, and fusion of past legacy and future success.

    Fixing the CFL

    When Adidas took over the CFL uniforms in 2016, they hit home runs with a few, most notably the Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Unfortunately there were a few real duds like Montreal and Calgary. One thing I really dislike is that so many teams use the same template with the arm striping (BC, Calgary, Sask, Ottawa) and side panels (Calgary, Sask, Ottawa). When will this idiotic trend go away! My first submission is Montreal. Right now they possibly have the worst uniform design of all time, especially combined with a really bad cartoon logo. My fix here is pretty simple: new logo with clean design based on their glory days in the 70's. To me this seems like a real easy fix.
  18. This off season I am going to focus my design hobby on getting better at jersey swaps and while they aren't necessarily designs, I feel this is still a solid place to post. First Up: Tyrann Mathieu to the Texans - Typically I struggle with the facemask/Helmet area but really took time on this one and feel like I nailed it down into the realm of reality. Feedback is welcomed and wanted!
  19. Our long national nightmare is over. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2769835-thursday-night-football-color-rush-alternate-uniforms-reportedly-going-away Say goodbye to Color Rush uniforms on Thursday nights this coming fall. Bill Wanger of Fox Sports said Tuesday the NFL plans to scrap the alternate uniforms it used during Thursday Night Football telecasts beginning with the 2018 season, per Jason Barrett of Barrett Sports Media. However, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported the Color Rush uniforms won't be going away completely. They just "might not be exclusive to Thursday nights anymore," sources told him. This shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone. In December, the NFL said it was allowing teams to have "more flexibility" with their Thursday night uniforms, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, which effectively ended the Color Rush push. The polarizing Color Rush uniforms began rolling out in 2015. Some fans delighted in the alternate offerings, while others were put off by the bright colors. In one notable mishap, a Color Rush game between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills proved to be a mess for those with red-green colorblindness. That should no longer be an issue now that Fox is taking over Thursday games.

    CFL Color Rush

    I know most people hate the color rush unis but I was inspired by JimmyN64's great designs so thought I'd see how CFL might look. I didn't include the stupid one helmet rule. Will add more when I have time and probably do some throwbacks as well. Here are the first few. Cheers!

  22. Based on the leaks so far, I strongly dislike what I've seen from the Titans. It feels like too much of a shift and doesn't read as the Titans to me. The gray is pointless clutter and makes the set much more drab. The number font is hideous and overly designed. The underarm panels look like something out of 2002. Overall, the color balance is all over the place and there's generally no cohesion at all. I always thought the Titans needed incremental tweaks, not a complete overhaul. The flaming thumbtack is outdated but I really like the circle with the stars from the state flag. The pants are fantastic, however the modern helmet stripes clash with the traditional pants. I like the shoulder stripes and the sword shaped stripes on the new set are a cool evolution of that feature, it's just a shame that they're now gray. My set looks to streamline things a bit (consistent stripes, consistent number colors on the various jersey panels, updated word mark, logo, etc). I like the idea of a red Color Rush set. Navy pants are needless clutter given how fantastic their normal white and columbia blue pants are. I think I do prefer the Titans in white helmets, however, it makes too much sense to use columbia blue to distinguish themselves from all the other white helmet teams, and it still looks great. Of all the helmet choices, the rumored navy is the worst option. I emphasized navy and columbia blue with red used as small touches (swooshes, nameplates, helmet stars, part of the word mark, etc).
  23. New to the forum, but I've been a lurker for a while now. Being that I am a Titans fan and that there has been quite a bit of talk about them and their new uniforms lately I figured I would give things a shot. This is not how I envision them to do things at all, but more like how I would do it i it were up to me. I did take a few design cues away from some of the sneak peaks though. Going off of there "Tradition Evolved" campaign motto, I did just that by merging a similar styling and color scheme with some modern updates. Let me know what you think. AWAY HOME COLOR RUSH

This is the big one. I've had the bits and pieces of this one working for two and half years and I finally feel ready enough to get this one out to the public. This project began when I wondered one day what would happen if Nike did something ludicrous and somehow managed to get apparel rights to every single FBS level team. Of course this is seemingly impossible in the real world, but it was fun to think about. Then I took it one step further. Not only would get every FBS football team, but if every FBS football team also had a Division 1 basketball, baseball and hockey team for Nike to get their hands on. So the goal here is one, to actually finish this idea, but more than that, is to see if I can create a unique identity for 130 some teams across 4 different sports. This means that some traditional looks will be changed slightly and some might change drastically. Nevertheless, I'm excited to get this off the ground and share it with you guys. Teams will be posted as I get them done and will be done in a random order I have created with some help from the internet and first up is the Ohio Bobcats of the MAC: (I also will create one of these cool team headers for every team). Ohio's sports have a rather laid back and simplistic look to them. Even with adidas/Russell at the helm of their apparel, they don't have too crazy of a look and I kept that in mind as I designed their uniforms for this. Keeping that in mind, I left their football uniforms pretty much the same as they have been the last couple years. Biggest change here is the addition of real pants stripes as opposed to no stripes or very short stripes. I limited black to an alternate set that would hopefully be worn separately, but in the current state of college football we all know that wouldn't happen. The hockey uniforms are very similar to how the football uniforms go. I did consider shoulder logos for them but I didn't keep them, as it just didn't feel right to me. Baseball uniforms again are very simple and consistent with the rest of the uniforms. Biggest thing here and across the board is that there is no longer a "grey away" designation. Unless a team has grey in their set, I won't be giving a team a grey uniform for baseball. Basketball is consistent with the rest. I didn't want to go full Celtics with Ohio, so the double stripe pattern is on the shoulders and the collar trim is a solid color. On the shorts the waistband is striped and the hem is a solid color. C&C is welcome as always. Given the larger nature of this thread, I'll try and get the next team up as soon as I can.
  25. Below is the outline of a concept I've been working on for an alternate timeline story I've been writing. The timeline mostly deals with an expanded exploration program for NASA in the last half of the 20th century. One of the things that I've been using to color the timeline is alternative team names and locations within American sports. On this front, instead of the failed XFL franchise, in my timeline, the XFL instead rides a wave of post-9/11 patriotism to create a football league with a military theme. Called Warball, the sport openly embraces the quasi-military themes of football (see George Carlin for further insights) and seeks to appeal to a hyper-masculine fanbase. Initially the league forms with 8 teams in 2 conferences Freedom Division Patriot Division Capital Warriors Seattle Stealth New York Heroes Alcatraz Guards Texas Assault Coronado Destroyers Chicago Shield Arizona Generals Teams are composed of 7 players on the field at any time. The field is 60 yards endzone-to-endzone. Endzones are 7.5 yards deep with curved corners. Field is bounded by 20 degree inclines 5 yards wide which are inbounds. Beyond the inclines are hockey rink walls. A ballcarrier cannot run out of bounds and must be tackled or score for the play to end. Any player on the field is considered an eligible receiver. Kicking of any kind has been eliminated. Teams have 6 downs to advance from their own 10 yard line to the opposing endzone. Touchdowns are worth 5 points. After a touchdown, a team is allowed to try a conversion play from the 3-yard line. A conversion by pass is worth 2 points. A conversion by run is worth 1 point. Two 20 minute halves are separated by a 10-minute halftime. Teams have 20 seconds to begin the next play. The clock does not run unless the ball is in play. Teams are required to have at least one starting player who is a current or former member of the United States military, and/or a civilian police, fire or paramedic service. Questions, comments, suggestions? I invite all of the above. This is my first league concepts, so, please, rip me apart here. I'll learn from everything that is said.
