    Fix the Bucs

    Here is my version of an update to the Bucs uniforms. A direction that combines traditional and modern concepts that embraces the historical Bucs looks with some adjustments that are consistent with the current branding. No more glowing alarm clock numbers, pewter shoulders or over-sized logos. Hope you enjoy!, Nate Red Combos White Combos Alternates (In compliance with NFL helmet rule)
  2. If ever there was a team that was in need of a rebrand, it's the Cleveland Browns! I mean...their primary logo is the generic NFL helmet icon from the 70s. With this design I suggest the unthinkable, by adorning the actual helmet with a logo. This is an evolution of an existing secondary logo the team uses. But reworking the 'B' to house a 'C' making it distinct to Cleveland, as there a are many teams that use a letter B across all sports. The stripes are a nod to the helmet stripe of the past, giving it a link to the proud history the team.
  3. I've attempted to take MLB teams, combined with NFL counterparts and their jersey designs, C&C always welcome! This may be a series for the full league, I'm open to requests as well. And with that, here we go... LA ANGELS = RAMS The thought here was to try and mimic the Rams horns design with some sort of wing design on the sleeves. OAKLAND A'S = RAIDERS HOUSTON ASTROS = TEXANS TORONTO BLUE JAYS = BILLS CLEVELAND INDIANS = BROWNS Inspired by the color rush but in away form. CINCINNATI REDS = BENGALS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES = EAGLES
  4. I’m tired of seeing the same logo for the Pro Bowl.But now I made this Logo
  5. There is no room for the 'Redskins' to be an acceptable team name in the present day. This coming from a life long Skins fan, it pains me that the name garners so much controversy. But looking at the issue objectively, it is only the name itself that is the problem not the Native American idea the team adopted in 1932. The whole reason I chose to follow the team at all as a kid from the UK, was because of the imagery, colours and of course they were the sworn rivals to "AMERICA'S TEAM"! This rebrand is an attempt to answer the issue, by ditching the name but keeping the history and ethos of the team. There is a-lot of brand equity in the original logo, but certain details always bothered me. The head inside the circle, with yet another pair of feathers crudely tagged on.
  6. Watching the Seahawks in the playoffs this year, I've decided that I really like their color scheme. Even the neon green looks good in some applications. In particular, it was Pete Carroll's hoodie. And the way the colors work in light. But the logo itself doesn't work for me at all. It's bland and boring, and the gray and white blend together at distance. The original version of this logo was a lot better, with the second shade of blue. But when it was re-colored in 2012, I think they fumbled. Just not enough contrast. I got to thinking what the logo would look like with more green. Not necessarily one-color green, like Pete's jacket above, but just a little more. So I gave the lower stripe back its verdant beauty, and replaced the white for their silver/gray for good measure. Not an earth-shattering change, but to my eye, this works a lot better, and fits better with their history to boot. Your thoughts?
  7. Over the past 17 weeks, I have been changing up each NFL match up. Using a simple equation I made up, I have redesigned the uniform matchups to something a little more realistic, and usually better on the eyes. My simple program goes like this: I go through the Gridiron Uniform Database, studying the uniform patterns over the last few years for each team. My main focus is the one question, "What will the team normally wear at this time period?" I then check through the uniforms a team has worn in a couple week scan, and find the best one that suits the match up of the day. Rules: Must be in the current uniforms Must be realistic enough One helmet rule applies White vs color through every game (only 3 games break this rule) 3 games in alternate uniforms max (only Baltimore breaks this rule with 4) Up to 4 different jerseys in one season (Home, Away, Alt 1, Color Rush) Note: This is heavily inspired by @DNAsports series, thanks to him I'd first like to start with all the combinations used for each team!

  8. As a kid, I once rented an NES game that had all 28 at the time NFL teams, and their helmet logos, and actual players. I forgot the name of that game (Tecmo Super Bowl) until college. Lately I’ve been learning more about Tecmo Super Bowl and found it interesting that they could manage to be as accurate as they were given the technological limitations of working in 8-bit programming, especially when the helmet was automatically the same color as the pants. I also find it interesting that approximately half the NFL teams have alternate uniforms in this game, presumably to avoid clashes. There really was a great deal of attention and effort put in. Anyway, I’m meaning for this thread to serve as a piggyback from this excellent thread on a Tecmo forum: https://tecmobowl.org/forums/topic/52933-tecmo-super-bowl-uniforms-nes/ The Tecmo thread is good but leaves out a few alternates plus doesn’t show pictures of the various uniforms in action. Now we can play the game on our phones and computers and take screenshots, so I think it would be nice to visually catalogue the various uniforms used in this impressive game. I should be able to post a lot of them in the coming days if anyone can tell me what the preferred image-hosting site is these days. Also, if a mod wants to move this to a different forum, I don’t object. I'll show images of all the uniforms a given team wears in the game, and also give a brief description of the team itself in TSB. All uniforms are described as (helmet-jersey-pants). For instance, the Colts are white-blue-white.
  9. Apologies if this is a little too early, I had a question about what teams we know for sure are changing in the fast approaching new year and didn’t know where to put the question so I figured three weeks left in the regular season isn’t too bad a time to create this thread. How many teams are for sure changing in the upcoming year? I know that the Rams supposedly are, I believe the Browns have been confirmed, and there’s rumors of the Buccaneers and slight tweaks to the Raiders for their new home in Vegas. Anyone else I’m missing?
  10. So, after watching the game last night, it occurred to me that the Atlanta Falcons have some untapped potential with their identity, and could actually look really good. Any and all feedback welcome! Here's my fix starting with logo: Falcons Logo Concept by HuntTheJones (Based on the combination of the Throwback Logo & Current Logo) So the first is obvious. Take the old logo that's still so popular among the fanbase (at least the ones I know) and the current logo (which I think is actually pretty good) and combine them for a modernized version to make everyone happy. Up next, turf design: Falcons Turf Concept for Mercedes-Benz Stadium Last night made it clear that the throwback turf design is the look Atlanta needs. That said, there is nothing wrong with the current font style they have. So, sticking with the theme of the logo, find a happy medium. Up next, helmet design: Falcons Helmet Concept Nice and simple, just like the helmet they already have. A gloss black shell with nothing but the new logo on each side gets the job done. Up next, uniform design: Black Home Primary White Road Primary Red Home Alternate This is my favorite part. The basis is that each design is based on the throwback worn last night. Their current design is outdated, and nothing stands the test of time like the classic. So, put the current number font, new logo on the sleeves, and "ATLANTA" in small block on the chest. Keep the same pants design as well, just make the primary the old school silver. Rotate white and all black in the mix so you never get stale. Black jersey becomes primary Home, White jersey goes back to Black numbers, & Red jersey becomes alternate. C&C welcome!
  11. Hello! I just want to start a concept topic about a mashup of logos of the franchises from each city. The result will be a logo for each city (in NY and LA two logos) representing the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS teams. So, this is the first one: Los Angeles (part I). -City: Los Angeles -Colours: Los Angeles Lakers colours (purple (#552583 ) and gold (#fdb927) -LA letters from the Los Angeles Lakers jersey logo -Ram head from the Los Angeles Rams logo -'Los Angeles' name from the Los Angeles Dodgers jersey logo -Baseball from the Los Angeles Dodgers logo -Crown from the Los Angeles Kings logo -Shape from the LA Galaxy logo Thank you for your time here.
  12. I saw there was a thread about Tampa Bay Bucs possibly getting new unis for the 2020 NFL season. Here are some markups I did. I kept the Retro unis pretty straightforward, but combined the 2 looks with the Retro & the early 2000's. Please give me any feedback you may have.
  13. Hey everyone, It's been a long time since I've posted on the boards but I am back with a project that I have been wanting to do for awhile now. Re-designing the NFL has always been an idea of mine but I never had the time. Well, over summer I finally had some time, got a new/faster computer and started going to work. Anyone who has followed my other threads, know that I'm not a big logo designer but I learned how to use Illustrator and with this new knowledge, there will be some logo changes to the league. Before I get started, I just want to lay down some guidelines for this thread. One helmet rule still applies (I don't hate this rule because I don't want NFL teams having multiple different helmets like in college). Color Rush uniforms for every team No NFL 100 logo on helmets and uniforms I'll start out with my favorite team's division and work through the NFC, then the AFC, and then I might finish it out with a few surprises. In my next post I'll have the Packers' concepts. Alright here we go. NFC NORTH Chicago Bears Detroit Lions v2.0 v3.0 Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings v2.0 NFC EAST Dallas Cowboys v2.0 New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles Washington ............ NFC SOUTH Atlanta Falcons v2.0 Carolina Panthers v2.0 New Orleans Saints Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFC WEST Arizona Cardinals Los Angeles Rams San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks AFC NORTH Baltimore Ravens Cleveland Browns Cincinnati Bengals Pittsburgh Steelers AFC EAST Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets AFC SOUTH Houston Texans Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans AFC WEST Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Los Angeles Chargers Oakland Raiders
  14. This may just be a puff, but usually where there's smoke, there's at least a spark if not a small fire. So take it for what it's worth. (Mods feel free to move or remove as deemed necessary.) Rumor: Bucs New Uniforms Coming? Pertinent from the link: The last time I saw that line of logic was about three years ago, out of Amy Adams Strunk, before the Tenneessee Titans ended up cosplaying as titans who play football, so...
  15. Making a separate thread for discussion of face mask color and preference for teams. Unpopular opinion: The Browns look best with a brown face mask.
  16. I've done many "Vintage Style College Mascots" and as the NFL season gets started I was thinking of what their logos/mascots might look like if they had been created in the style of Arthur Evans. I don't plan on directly using any mascot/logo looks (college or NFL) that are already out there (example: using Pistol Pete for the Dallas Cowboys). However, I may take inspiration from bits or pieces of them. Over the next few weeks/months I'll be adding my newest iterations, please let me know what you think with your comments and/or likes. First up: Minnesota Vikings
  17. NFL season starts on Thursday night with the Packers playing the Bears. With that in mind, it's time to open up this season's Weekly Picks competition. I don't need to explain the rules*; this is my fifth season doing this (still can't believe that it seems like just yesterday when I took over the competition; time flies), so you guys know how I do it by now. Good luck to everyone here, and good luck to your teams, except for you guys in the NFC South who will all be fighting for playoff spots that the Bucs won't be fighting for. Week 1: Green Bay vs. Chicago Kansas City vs. Jacksonville Atlanta vs. Minnesota Tennessee vs. Cleveland Buffalo vs. NY Jets Baltimore vs. Miami Washington vs. Philadelphia LA Rams vs. Carolina Indianapolis vs. LA Chargers Cincinnati vs. Seattle NY Giants vs. Dallas San Francisco vs. Tampa Bay Detroit vs. Arizona Pittsburgh vs. New England Houston vs. New Orleans Denver vs. Oakland I try to have the standings updated by about noon on Tuesday at the latest. That's the standard I adopted in 2017 and have stuck with. It can be earlier than that as well, depending on various circumstances, but they should be submitted no later than that point. If I'm going to be out-of-town early in a week and that deadline might be untenable, I'll make a note of it ahead of time. Thankfully, it doesn't appear I'll be displaced by a hurricane during the first weekend of the season this time around. Wasn't much fun last year, though compared to most people I know I had it much better than they did. -- *I lied. One rules reminder: Picks for the specific games are to be in by the kickoff of those respective games. I do believe in the honor system with this game. People here have lives, things get forgotten about, sometimes a game might accidentally be forgotten to be selected out of the vast Sunday swath (though I'm hoping to amend that a bit if I post the week's schedule in advance). If a game is forgotten about, you can send a DM or send me a tweet (@KramerIndustry) and, more often than not, I will be generous enough to give credit. If Cleveland is facing New England and NE wins and you forget to make that pick, then I'll logically presume NE would've been the pick and give the nod (do they even play each other this year? Who cares) (EDIT: It took several years to happen but that's finally a bad example, but you get the idea all the same). All I will ask is not to abuse this, is all.

    Eagles concept

    I figure it happens to all of us eventually...the muse simply hasn't been there lately. That is, until I sketched a few ideas down...and realized I was sitting on an Eagles set I not only never posted, but had left unfinished until now. Two tone green, as kelly green returns as the primary hue, with midnight green remaining as trim. Silver returns, albeit with a greenish tint. The jersey and pants blend a few eras: the pants are from the Cunningham era, the shoulder stripe-cuff combo is from the late 60s, albeit colored in a different manner than that set had been (and I may have had King Corcoran on my mind a little bit, too), and then the chest striping is from the Jaworski era's sleeves, also seen on the socks. Both of the alts are throwback inspired, the third being a tweaked version of the 40s greens, with plain silver pants and a little addition to the yoke-stripe, alluding to the helmet's wings; the heritage uniform is loosely based on something the Eagles' predecessors, the Frankford Yellow Jackets, had worn early in their time in the NFL, hence their YFJ monogram on the back of the jersey. Sleeve stripes were turned into wings, largely for the hell of it.
  19. Here are some of my ideas for NFL redesigns / concepts for the NFL. These are rough drawings so please excuse that lack of perfection. Also there are some teams that I didn't change hardly anything on. Some teams are just awesome the way they are. Please give me your feedback First up is the Tennessee Titans
  20. I'm not exactly sure what to call this as it's a bit different from the Unused Logos/Jersey thread. This is forgotten history about team name changes, logo rumors and relocation that never -- that kind of stuff. I bring this up for a couple of reasons and I'll illustrate my point to hopefully set the tone of the thread. I was researching the late '80s NBA expansion of Miami, Orlando, Minnesota and Charlotte and found a few interesting nuggets in this article. I knew about the Charlotte Spirit nickname as it wasn't well received, the I found the Florida Heat nickname bit interesting and pretty much forgotten without having to dig pretty far back into news archives to find the reference. Additionally there was The Athletic article yesterday about the Dallas Mavericks aborted rebranding in the late 90s before Mark Cuban bought the team and branded them with their current look. I also found a few mentions in other articles of the possibilities of the Spurs moving to Miami to accommodate both Expansion bids in Florida, since the NBA was originally set to expand only by three instead of four teams. Anyways, I'd love to discover more lost history in other sport leagues since basketball is what I know best. What do you have?
  21. After delivering the nuke on the previous concepts, I took a break from doing art as it were but then the stuff I had wasn't up to scratch so using the modified templates from @edjb93 to which he got from the original templates of @LEWJ... I present my own personal takes on the NFL, unknown at the moment if I'm going with the expansion teams I did last time. Presenting the Home kit with two alternate pants, the Road kit with two alternate pants with the Alternative kit, the Throwback kit and borrowing the NBA's City Jerseys to create a special one game only Big City Set. THIS IS WHAT THREAD CONTAINS AS TO WHY IT EXISTS: The NFL had a strike season of 2021 because the NFLPA and the league couldn't come up with an agreement thus the Super Bowl wasn't played... everyone lost money and the scapegoat was Goddell, he was immediately fired after the confirmation of a strikeout season. The New England Patriots no longer had the immunity that they had from Goddell's biasness and were immediately found guilty via an independent commission of benefiting via a corrupt commissioner... the new owners banned the team from post-season for 10-15 years, forfeitures of first round draft picks and stripped them of their Super Bowls won in the Goddell era thus giving Seattle, Atlanta and the LA Rams the wins. Adidas and Under Armor challenged the exclusivity deal of NFL's deal with Nike and it went to the highest court in the land which ruled that it was an unfair competitive advantage and forced Nike to drop teams in order to not being fined in the billions... they kept some teams in return like the Rams and the Cowboys. Big City is what it's called and it's essentially done by the designers, kind of like what the NBA does.... and there are some bad, BAD ones.

  22. I've seen this idea get bounced around for a thread and in the wake of the demise of the AAF, I feel now is a good time to discuss how an alternative league can potentially survive (and with a few strokes of luck, even thrive). While I'm focusing on alternatives to the Big 4 sports leagues in North America (NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL) as that is what I know, discussing alternatives to leagues outside of North America is obviously welcome. As for a potential alternative (American) football league, here are a few starters that would help IMO: 1. Have a secure source of funding and be willing to lose tens of millions of dollars to start. 2. Don't try to beat the established leagues right off the bat. After all, you have to prove that you can stick around as the longest lasting league since the NFL-AFL merger was the United Football League. 3. Maintain a smaller staff compared to an NFL team. This is obvious. Keep expenses down as much as possible. 4. Get a TV/streaming contract. Streaming is the next evolution of TV but get a TV contract because not everyone can access Internet fast enough to stream. Clearly this is nowhere near a complete list of steps necessary to establish a foothold in the sports market but it's a start.

Big thanks to @ren69 for designing the beautiful modern D logo and allowing me to use it.
