  1. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  2. Hello again everyone! As some of you may remember, a while ago I had a series in the Sports Fan-Fiction portion of the site before it closed a couple months ago. Since then I have been reposting the old stories on another website, if you are interested in following along click the link in my sig. I just got caught back up and am posting new posts again. I thought that I aught to post my designs on here for people to see, much like others have done after the closing of the Sports Fan-Fiction forum. Here are the logos of all of the teams in the league.

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.
  4. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
  5. I've never posted a hockey concept before. I just recently got a template together, so I thought I'd try it out. I had a lot of fun making it. Thoughts?
  6. With the Hurricanes unveiling their new away jersey and now having 3 different distinct looking jerseys I've decided to keep their basic looks but having them keep unified parts. All 3 jerseys keep the tonal storm flag stripes and I add them to the sleeves now. Home Away The home and away keep the primary logo on the front. I normally hate nicknames on hockey jerseys but Canes for some reason kind grows on me. However save that for the alternate the home and away for the primary logo. The stripe widths are now constant and I added the storm flags to the home jersey. Third I move "Canes" to the third jersey because I don't like how the storm flags look on the front of the jersey. I also add the sleeve to the hem to keep consistency and removed the storm grey because it just looked wherever I put it.
  7. Hello everyone, I am currently taking a little break from my MAHL series in the sports fan fiction page to work on this new project I have been thinking about doing for a while. I plan on going back to it very soon, and it by no means is going to die, I just want to change it up a little bit ya know? Anyways, there has been a little bit of talk on the boards lately about high school hockey and with the state tournament just a week away, I thought now would be a great time to make a series where I redesign every men's high school hockey team in the state (I have nothing against the women's teams, there just are more men's teams and a lot of women's teams are combined with other schools). I will make a home, away and alternate for every team in the state. I'm just gonna say this now, I will be using logos that are used by the high school, so if they happen to actually belong to a college or professional team, it is the schools fault, I am just trying to make use of what they really use. In a few cases I might decide to make a logo, only if what the school really uses is THAT bad. All of the logos will likely be re-done by me in illustrator to prevent pixelation and just overall improve the quality, so if anyone would like to see the logo alone I could post that as well, just ask. I'll be choosing conferences at random, but I'll begin with the Lake Conference since they have some of the biggest schools in the state. Up first I have Eden Prairie. The Eagles use the flying eagle logo from Boston College both on its own and in front of "EP" for Eden Prairie as their logos. Eden Prairie High School Nickname: Eagles Enrollment: 3,018 Rival(s): Edina, Minnetonka, Wayzata Class: AA State Titles: 2 (2009, 2011) State Tournament Appearances: 11 (1992, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019) Home: I brought back the Mittelstadt era uniform with a few tweaks. The black stripe near the bottom of the jersey is gone to simplify it as it didn't really add anything IMO, and the BC Eagle logo is added to the breezers. This is a unique jersey that is instantly identifiable as EP, I still don't know why they switched from it. Away: The away jersey is new to EP, it is simply a color swapped version of their home with red taking prominence over the white. Alternate: The Eagles currently don't have a red jersey, which is stupid. They instead use these grey for grey's sake alternates. I love the script on those jerseys, I just hate the grey, so I took that jersey, made it red and adjusted the striping to match. I think this is a good faux-back look for them that brings their primary school color back into the uniform rotation. Let me know what you think, comments are appreciated!
  8. Hi! I've been a longtime reader of CCSLC and I've decided to start posting some of my concepts. I decided to redesign the nhl uniforms for the 2021-2022 season. In this concept I decided to take a page from the NBA and give all 32 teams a third and fourth jersey. Going on with the NBA and soccer, there are no home or away uniforms. They just need to clash (I know this would be tough for equipment managers so my idea is that the away team picks the color so they can just travel with one set) I originally redesigned a few teams logos but in the end I decided I still wanted to keep all the teams with the same general brand they already have or have had. Here's the Atlantic Division: Boston I changed the dark and light to be closer to the Bobby Orr days of the 1960s-70s. The third is a modern take of the B's 1965-67 home uniform. Their 4th jersey pays homage to the first bruins' uniform. Buffalo The dark uniforms are inspired by their heritage third jersey they used to have and the light is their winter classic jersey just with laces. The 4th jersey is in spired by the Buffalo flag. Detroit I keep the dark and light the exact same, the third is a red version of their centennial classic uniforms with the 2014 Winter Classic logo. 4th jersey is inspired by the 1930's away jersey and added the Hockeytown logo. Florida I keep the dark and light the same except for having the same crest on both jerseys, the third is a recolored version of their original navy third jersey. I'll admit this is ripping off the Heat but these are Miami Vice inspired. Montreal The Habs' home jersey is probably my favorite uniform in sports but I've always thought their away jersey was missing something so I added stripes to the sleeves. The third jersey is an inverse of the dark jersey. The 4th jersey is blue to honor the Quebec flag but also honor the Canadiens' history. Ottawa The dark, light and third jerseys are all inspired by the Centennial Classic jerseys which has historical significance to Ottawa. The 4th jersey is the Senators original jerseys. Tampa Bay I added some black to the dark and light. The third jersey is an update to their cup winning uniforms. The 4th jersey are a heathered grey pattern to make a rain storm type pattern. Toronto I make the hem stripe a double stripe to add consistency. The third jersey is inspired by the Arenas throwback and the 4th jersey is inspired by Drake. Thanks so much for viewing and any CC would be appreciated! I'll be posting the Metro soon.
  9. I've been working on some ideas lately surrounding the name and logo for the future NHL team in Seattle and I wanted to share them here. I have shared these with the @SeattleSinBin Twitter account and he has posted them to get feedback from Seattle hockey fans. The response has been mixed, with many people seeming to like the logos, but not responding favorably to the color schemes for either concept (too similar to the Portland Timbers and OKC Thunder for many people's liking). I've always felt that the Seattle navy & neon green color scheme would be great for continuity's sake with the Seahawks and Sounders, but not so great for the sake of originality or differentiating ourselves from the blue & green color palette already being used by the Vancouver Canucks. Here are the concepts: Seattle Pilots Seattle Breakers I have a couple other ideas for logos that I plan on exploring for Steelheads and Kraken, and I'll see if I can come up with some other options that are a little more unique to the standard list of names being mentioned for the future NHL team.
  10. It's been a few days since I finished the Sabres series, so now I begin the Canucks counterpart...tonight, I mash the style they wore for their first two seasons with the flying skate. The Peyote Coyote skates forth to oppose them, this uniform based on the 1974-75 Phoenix Roadrunners, though repeating the coyote on the shoulders the way the Runners had had their logo ended up looking like crap, so I used the moon instead. Tomorrow is 80s Night, this time out I'll make you squirm a bit, see if you can guess which logo'll be used and who the opponents will be. I'll tell you what though, much like I ended the Sabres series with a heritage set, the Canucks series will end with an interesting take on the Millionaires.
  11. Back in the autumn of 2016, the remaining Expansion Six all celebrated their 50th anniversaries, and to mark the occasion, I basically did a series split into four parts: the Kings leg, the Blues leg, the Penguins leg and the great North Stars-Seals trainwreck Tonight...we ride again. The Sabres and Canucks turn the big Five-O, and so I am summoned from the scrap heap to commemorate things. As a number of weird things did, we begin in the 70s. The Sabres use their original striping style, but with a slight tweak as I took cues from the white jersey with the differing colorations, and also put the AHL Bisons-inspired Buffalo wordmark to use. The visiting Rangers are in the infamously short-lived 76-78 uniforms, but with the shield from one of their Winter Classic jerseys on the front. The plan is as follows: 80s: vs Bruins (? I'm thinking of going in a different direction, but they're who I have penciled in). The Sabres' crest here will either be the goathead, this past Winter Classic's shoulder logo (in which case this'll be predominantly yellow) or the pre-Edge red jersey's crest. 90s: vs Lightning...I might go with the Buffaslug here. Not sure whether I'll go with their original design or the rain storm jersey for TB. 2K: vs Blue Jackets...honestly...ugh...expectations suck sometimes. Take a wild guess what's coming. 2010s: vs Canadiens...rolling with the Buffalo script template here. I think. Pre-Sabres Heritage: vs Capitals or Penguins Before you ask, there will be a Canucks series too. And yes, there will be flying V.
  12. As in this period so many people seems to be taken into the Star Wars madness I've decided to change the subject of my fantasy league from Star Wars to The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit world. My Galactic Football League will have to wait a bit more. Why did I choose hockey for my Middle-earth fantasy league? I thought that hockey was the most fitting sport for J.R.R. Tolkien fictional continent as most of his stories take place in dark and cold times full of battles and wars. To me hockey is one of those sports which represents best an ancient battle fight. For these reasons I'm glad to present you the Middle-earth Hockey League (MEHL in short)! Little geographical lesson My hockey league teams will all be based on the geography you can see on maps in Tolkien's most famous books, LOTR and The Hobbit, which are setted in the Third Age of Arda (just because Middle-earth has not been the same shape ever). The whole world which is called Ea or Arda has many different continents but all my teams will be in the Middle-earth continent (also known as Endor, well, not that Endor). League Teams Rohan Riders Helm's Deep Defenders Minas Tirith Monarchs Minas Morgul Nazguls Osgiliath Legion Bree Brewers Rivendell Lords Mirkwood Hunters Moria Forgers Isengard Wild Erebor Mountain Kings Shire Halflings Misty Mountains Avalanche Mordor Black Army Anduin Argonath Ithilien Bowmen Dale Blazers Iron Hills Ironfeet League Map (the image is quite big, I suggest to have a look on full size mode) The league will not have conferences in it and every team will be playing two season games against each other team, one home and one away. There will not be playoffs, the team with the most victories gets the league trophy. In case of an even number of victories of two or more teams the number of draws or losses will be analysed. Hope you enjoy this thread!
  13. Doodling led to some ideas for a bolder, brighter NHL with more attitude so I figured I'd flesh some out, starting with the Lightning. Not sure how many teams I'll do, but it won't be the whole league, just whatever interesting ideas come to me. Also help me name this series once you get the flavor cause I don't know what the heck to call this thing. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for watching as always!
  14. Welcome to the OHA What if the Winter Classic was every week? What if hockey was played outdoors the way it is supposed to be? In 2009, I fell in love with idea of the Winter Classic. I found it intriguing that my favorite sport’s teams were able to play in the iconic venues of other sports. I loved the throwback sweaters and watched the 24/7 HBO show every year. I agree with most and was not a fan of the addition of the Stadium Series. I too felt that it watered down the event and made it less special. I thought it would be special if all the teams could wait their turn and feel honored when it comes to their city. With that said, in 2009 I went the other way. I thought a great concept series would be if every team played outside…every week. Therefore I present the Outdoor Hockey Association. The OHA's main logo is a face-off circle. The circle making the shape of an "O" and the face-off section forms an "H". Teams The OHA is composed of 24 franchises in North America. 12 franchises are from the United States and 12 are from Canada. There are no divisions, only two conferences (USA and CANADA). Geographically, the OHA is located in colder climates. The southern most city in the OHA is St. Louis. In the coming days I will unveil each team's logos, the reasoning for the identity, and uniforms. All of the identities are completed so this series should move rather quickly. For now...here is a sneak peak at the 24 franchises. Schedule The OHA plays a condensed schedule and more closely resembles an NFL schedule than that of the NHL. Each team plays a 17 game schedule. Each team plays each team in their country-based conference once. This is similar to a college football conference schedule. They then will play three teams from the west and three teams from the east of the other nation’s conference. The schedule begins the Sunday after Thanksgiving and the regular season concludes by the end of February. The playoffs are on the weekends in March. Every New Year’s Day the OHA celebrates hockey everywhere with the Indoor Classic. Venue The premise of the series is that the league has perfected the technology for outdoor hockey. The ice is always perfect and the stands are slightly heated. It is not something I really cared to worry about in this universe. The teams play in some of the most iconic venues in the country. The Series The season is currently underway. After I unveil all of the teams I will post the week by week results of the season up to that point and then update on the results moving forward.
  15. Started this thread so that I don't have to start a new one everytime I post a new concept. Kicking things off are the Nashville Predators! I Kept things pretty simple here, using a pattern inspired by their Reebok jerseys. The pattern is the exact same on all three jerseys. On the alt, I used a recoloured version of their original logo. Any C&C is appreciated!
  16. I'm glad to present you my latest work, a redesign of the Alps Hockey League. This league has 7 austrian, 2 slovenian and 8 italian teams and represents the highest hockey league in Italy, awarding the italian national title. In Austria it's the second tier league after the Österreichische Eishockey-Liga so there are some second teams of more powerful teams like Salzburg and Klagenfurt. The league was created for the 2016-2017 season after the merger of the italian Serie A and austro-slovenian Internatonal League and the first Alps champion was the italian team Rittner Buam. In the 2017-2018 season a second slovenian team was added and the resulting champion was the italian team Asiago Hockey. You can see the map and actual logos of the league (credit to eliteprospects). I decided to redesign the logos of this league, as they mostly felt outdated, and the jerseys too, as they are mainly not related with identity or color palette of their team. Teams in the league: Austria EC KAC II (Klagenfurt) EK Zell Am See EC Red Bull Salzburg II EC Kitzbuehel EHC Lustenau VEU Feldkirch EHC Bregenzerwald (Dornbirn) Italia HC Pustertal/Val Pusteria Rittner Buam (Ritten/Renon) WSV Sterzing/Vipiteno Broncos HC Gherdeina (Selva di Val Gardena) HC Neumarkt/Egna HC Fassa Falcons (Canazei) Asiago Hockey SG Cortina Slovenia HDD Jesenice HK Olimpija (Ljubljana) Here you have my rework of the league logo. I actually quite like their actual logo but I felt like it was important to underline the league different nationalities. The lower logo is for black and white display.
  17. So we learned at this year's NHL Winter Classic that the 2020 Winter Classic will be hosted by the Dallas Stars and held at Cotton Bowl Stadium on new year's day of the new decade. We don't know who they're playing yet however, once we do I'm sure concepts will really start rollin' so I wanted to be one of the first. I selected their opponent as the Minnesota Wild, because right now they're the most popular choice, the backstory's great, and it just... has to happen. Come on, who wouldn't wanna watch two enemy fanbases bicker over history as they stir a cup of cocoa with their last candy cane? I know I would. Plus they're the closest thing the Stars have to a rival rn. Anyway, as usual, the WC branding in my concept is neutral, no team colors. The shape is based off of a mounted animal head plaque, like you'd see on a hunter's wall, only with a freakishly large deer head attached to the front of it. Mounted animal heads, although a tad barbaric, are a symbol of hard-fought victory in the winter, no place more than in Texas, making it a good metaphor for the WC game. The rest of the logo serves as that trophy, in a way, symbolizing two teams hunting a win. The top part part of the badge is shaped like the top of Cotton Bowl stadium's facade and the t part of the "Winter" is a pair of mounted bull horns (nod to the Texas Longhorns) spearing a puck . Making the "Winter" part of the logo icy white and blue just seemed wrong for Dallas, who's not known for its frigid winters, so I opted for cream. The bright orange? I... don't really even know, I just like the boldness of it (TEXAS!!!) and I admit, w/ a touch of shame, I got most of my inspiration from Texas Roadhouse's decor. It's just such concentrated Texas-ness. I hope it works! Dallas' Unis are inspired by the old Dallas Texans and Minny's are kinda... playing North Stars dress-up. The striping's the same from their 60's years. They couldn't get away with any more, but they gotta get a nod in there for spiciness. Thank you so much for watching, let me know what you think, C&C always!
  18. Hey all! This is my second or third try for a concept created on the computer. I have done lots of drawings in the past of all sports. I decided to give the computer another try. About a year ago I created a concept league that was nearly never ending lol. After getting to a good stopping point with the drawings, here are my attempts at some of the teams with the computer. I gave each team 8 uniforms, which I know is a lot but I thought it would add an interesting twist to a pro sports league. Here is the start with the Oakland Icefish paint (home).
  19. Here you have some ideas I developed. They are not your usual Seattle logos and color schemes (maybe not exactly the Tritons...). Hope you enjoy my work, maybe I stretched out too far from the traditional path, let me know.
  20. Yeah, we keep talking about this, yet posting our disjointed HF comments everywhere across the CCSLC spectrum. The launching of this thread is long overdue.
  21. Hello all, I work as a designer for a Jr B hockey team in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. Our league has some horrendous uniforms in my opinion, so I figured I would take a shot at redesigning them. Im starting with the team I am part of, the London Nationals. Actually had the chance to redesign our home and away jerseys, and here is the concept I churned out before the final product. Previous set: Next concept, the Chatham Maroons. Once a Jr affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, I channelled that into a retro inspired third jersey. Previous set:
  22. Hey guys, EJaws here. Im deciding to start a Minnesota High School hockey redesign. Ill be starting with the Metro East conference and we will go from there! LETS MEET THE TEAMS/PLAY HOCKEY! Hastings Raiders [Royal Blue & Gold] Henry Sibley Warriors [Red & Las Vegas Gold?] Hill Murray Pioneers [Green & Black] Mahtomedi Zephyrs [Navy & Gold] North St Paul Polars [ Red & White] Simley Spartans [Blue & Red] South St Paul Packers [Maroon & White] St. Thomas Academy Cadets [Blue & White] Tartan Titans [Black & Blue] To Begin this project i started with remaking the Conference logo. I decide i needed to remake it when the only image I could find was 90x79. I really like the way this logo was going, so I tried to clean it up a bit. OLD LOGO-> NEW LOGO-> CC is appreciated
  23. Hello everyone! I've been a huge fan of college hockey my entire life, going to my first game when I was only 6 Weeks old. I decided to try my hand on redesigning all 60 teams in D1 college hockey. Some teams are just slight updates or even remaining the same for the most part, others are complete overhauls. WARNING: you will see a lot of stripes and script, and no football helmets in this thread! Every team has 4 jerseys, a home, away, alternate, and a second alternate which is mostly throwbacks but also can be a fauxback or a normal alternate. I will be going in alphabetical order of conference then team, lets get started! Starting off in Atlantic Hockey we have our first team. The American International College (AIC) Yellow Jackets CURRENT UNIFORMS: Home: Based off of their old alternate jersey, now with their classic Yellow Jacket logo on the chest. Away: A black version of their home. Alt: A yellow version. Alt 2: A fauxback with striped arms, AIC on chest diagonally, and no white on the uniform.
  24. Here's a design for the Caps if they ever want to have a new jersey instead of a direct throwback. The overall look is heavily inspired by the throwback jerseys but with some differences. The Weagle is front and centre as it should be, and the font is more modern. C&C Appreciated!
