  1. 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.
  2. 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. 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.

  3. Hey there! Were you disappointed in an unexciting Super Bowl culminating in the Evil Empire hoisting yet another Lombardi Trophy? Need a bigger fix of football and the AAF isn't doing the trick? Want to see someone display marginal design skills and creativity through a cavalcade of slightly altered striping patterns, new fonts, and superfluous recolors before inevitably burning out and stopping 2/3 of the way through the league? Then you have come to the right place! In the posts that follow, you will see my staid re-imaginings of the National Football League, starting, as nearly every one of these threads does, with the Arizona Cardinals, because that's how the alphabet works. ARIZONA CARDINALS The one distinctive trait of their uniforms during their time in the Copper State has been the incorporation of the state flag on the sleeves from the late 90s to mid 00s, so that's the main source of inspiration. The team colors are altered to reflect this (bye-bye black) and a red facemask replaces the gray one of yore, removing yet another extraneous color from the Cardinals colorway. The uniforms fit the flag onto the sleeve caps, and the solitary angular stripe on the pants carries from the flag as well. The alternate also draws heavily from the flag. Other than that, the red pants are back (only to be used with the white jersey), and a new number font accompanies these changes. Let me know which team you want to see next. I welcome your feedback.
  4. It's almost 2019 so I figured I'd make this. We already know about the Jets getting new uniforms and that's super exciting https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/ray-ratto/oakland-lawsuit-vs-raiders-nfl-begs-potentially-league-shaking-question The City of Oakland is sueing the Raiders and is trying to get a Cleveland deal for the rights to the Raiders name. If the Raiders name sticks with Oakland, it will probably never be used again given how unlikely an expansion or move to Oakland will be. There's a small chance that December 30th will be the last time the Raiders name ever takes the field
  5. 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.
  6. 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 New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles Washington ............ NFC SOUTH Atlanta Falcons v2.0 Carolina Panthers 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
  7. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/12/16/is-the-xfl-coming-back/ I know they kind of teased it at the end of that 30 for 30 special earlier this year, but I didn't think they were serious.
  8. 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.)

Recently I have gone back and tried to refine each field to be as exact as possible, and its still a work in progress. I got the idea to start posting them after seeing kodrinsky's NBA court database and I thought it would be a good way to get some feedback and some help pointing out any inaccuracies in what I have so far. So, as I've said before, I want to be as exact as possible, so if anyone sees something inaccurate please let me know by either posting a picture or a link to a video that can help me out. It could be something as small as color, number font, or even the width of the lines on the field. Anything will help. I guess I'll start with Super Bowl I Super Bowl I: January 15, 1967. Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, California Kansas City Chiefs - 10 Green Bay Packers - 35 < First Post Super Bowl II > I do have higher resolution (9144x4344 pixels) images of the fields that are to a scale of 1px=.5in, and templates if anyone ever wants them.
  10. 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...
  11. I've been posting my NFL concepts for a few months, but I've been doing them just one at a time. I've gotten some nice feedback (thanks) but a single concepts they do seem to disappear rather quickly. I've decided to gather them altogether, along with a few new ones (like the following Cowboy concept), which seems to be the preferred way most of us do this. As always, let me know what you think. Starting with the NFC East,
  12. Maybe there is hope after all! Crossing fingers it goes back to the traditional look... Tony Grossiā€Verified account @TonyGrossi 11m 11 minutes ago Dee Haslam confirmed to me another full # Browns uniform re-do could be in the works soon as new window opens in 2020.
  13. 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.
  14. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  15. 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
  16. Here's a new concept I'm doing. I'm sick of the bad uniform matchups this season. So I've decided to take it into my own hands. Concepts are in no particular order, although I will probably be doing the worst uniforms sooner than later. I will be using an edited version of @oldschoolvikings fantastic template. Without further ado, the first team up are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Hope y'all enjoy!
  17. I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  18. 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.
  19. Well, those of us who are fans of 20 of the 32 teams who missed the playoffs, welcome. Might as well make quick reference to coaching changes (head coach at start of 2018 listed as the "former"): Arizona: Steve Wilks -> Kliff Kingsbury Cincinnati: Marvin Lewis(!) -> Zac Taylor Cleveland: Hue Jackson -> Fred Kitchens Denver: Vance Joseph -> Vic Fangio Green Bay: Mike McCarthy -> Matt LaFleur Miami: Adam Gase -> Brian Flores NY Jets: Todd Bowles -> Adam Gase Tampa Bay: Dirk Koetter -> Bruce Arians Also, NFL Network's Mike Mayock has been hired as the Raiders GM. So, you know, there's this stuff and all the other ways to complain about the way your team sucks.
  20. Hi all, With the AAF season underway and looking more and more like an NFL farm system, I decided to take that literally. I have assigned all 32 NFL teams an affiliate farm team and given them an assigned stadium. However, I will keep the current eight teams and assign them to NFL affiliates with minor recoloring to match their respective teams (they may receive new stadiums to scale down though). I will be going division by division and explaining team names, starting with the AFC East going till the NFC West. I'm excited to work on this, so here goes nothing! Toronto Hogs (Buffalo Bills Affiliate): Nicknamed the hogs due to "Hogtown" being one of Toronto's many nicknames, Toronto would make a great ground for the Bills affiliate, as it would allow for the NFL to expand internationally for the first time and since the Bills played a game in Toronto annually for many years in the past, the affiliate should have fan support. Orlando Apollos (Miami Dolphins Affiliate): The team name and logo remain the same, but are recolored to the Dolphins' signature teal and both shades of orange they used in their history. New Jersey Fighters (New York Jets Affiliate): Obviously a reference to a fighter plane, like the Jets and the logo is in a similar style to the parent organization, even with the impending branding change. It would allow for the team to hang onto their older, retro identity. Providence Minutemen (New England Patriots Affiliate): Referring to the famous soldiers during the American revolution, it fits the Patriots' brand and identity. Let me know your thoughts/suggestions! I will be doing the AFC North next!
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
