  1. It's Week 17 of the 2020-21 season, so it's about time to start up this thread. All that we know is coming in 2021 is the new Packers throwback (was gonna release 2020 but got delayed) and the new Rams alternate (unknown if a recolor or throwback as of now.) The Nike Vapor Fusion template, which was tested out in 2020, is set to debut full-time for the NFL in either 2021 or 2022. Anything else that I missed?
  2. Well, things are a little bit different this year. With the new numbering policy taking effect this year, we’ll see rookies and veterans alike changing jersey numbers Bengals Rookie WR Ja’Marr Chase will be the first player in Bengals history to wear 1 Washington Rookie LB Jamin Davis goes with 52 Jaguars Rookie RB Travis Etienne and Rookie QB Trevor Lawrence Falcons Rookie TE Kyle Pitts will wear 8 Tamp Bay RB Leonard Fournette will change from 28 to 7 Colts QB Carson Wentz will wear 2 Vikings CB Patrick Peterson will wear 7 • Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders will wear 1 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nfl.com/_amp/emmanuel-sanders-to-wear-no-1-for-buffalo-bills • Eagles Rookie WR DeVonta Smith intends to wear 6 or 3 https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/2021-nfl-draft-devonta-smith-reveals-he-will-wear-a-single-digit-jersey-number-in-the-nfl/amp/ • 49ers Rookie QB Trey Lance is sticking with 5
  3. 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.
  4. Following the Super Bowl, a blend of work-from-home malaise and a regular loop of Full Color Football and other old NFL Films compilations on YouTube got me thinking about an intriguing idea. AFL fan and historian Ange Coniglio suggested the following: what if instead of the AFL being absorbed into the NFL in the 1970 merger the two leagues had unified on an equal, but separate footing to form something akin to Major League Baseball? And thus the idea for Major League Football was born. This basically just gave me the excuse to take a stab at football uniforms for the first time in a retro context. So this series will include all NFL teams with following loose guidelines (don't apply too much logic to these): All 32 NFL teams will be represented with their current geographic location and franchise name, except for Washington which will get an original name and look. There is no AFC or NFC. The original AFL and NFL league names are retained. The Steelers, Colts and Ravens (by virtue of being the original Browns) remain in the NFL with the other original 13 teams. Any expansion teams post 1970 join the original AFL teams (I know, this would leave the AFL at an imbalance with the NFL until 2002 - this is just a thought experiment). All uniforms are rendered in a 1960's era aesthetic for consistency, simplicity and to actually provide some sleeve space to work with. I won't claim every design is overhauled from scratch. There are some uniforms that are too iconic to not replicate. Others are a blend of colors and elements from different eras of a franchise. For some teams it's simply me representing their "best of" visual identity. Some are fauxback designs for franchises that never existed in the 60's. At the very least, I tried to add one unique element to each set, even if it's only an alternate logo. So without further ado, here's the Major League Football series... AFL NFL East - Patriots - Giants - Panthers - Cowboys - Dolphins - Eagles - Jets - Steelers North - Broncos - Lions - Bengals - Vikings - Browns - Bears - Bills - Packers Game Officials South - Buccaneers - Admirals - Jaguars - Ravens - Texans - Falcons - Titans - Colts West - Chiefs - Cardinals - Raiders - Saints - Seahawks - Rams - Chargers - 49ers
  5. Hi everyone, I have recently started a new project where I have made it a goal of mine to combine all of the sports logos from NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB (and at times MLS) from all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada to create a singular city logo. I know this has been done countless times before but the way my designs stand out is they are more cohesive. They feel less like something was Frankenstein'd together and can almost act as a standalone logo. Consider this the definitive collection. I say this with confidence because they were all composed in Adobe Illustrator with linework redone to make the designs more seamless, images rendered in crisp high resolution quality, each one taking several hours of work and trial and error and the cherry on top of the cake is that I own my own print shop so I can make stickers and shirts out of these designs. It's a true passion project for me. My journey began when I was first getting serious about graphic design, the summer right before I enrolled at DePaul in 2013. I created a mashup of all the Chicago logos because I wanted my own version of it. All the variations I had seen online did not do the city justice and I wanted something genuinely more badass that wouldn't look cheesy. I dubbed it "The Chicago Beast". It was cool for a few years and then I sort of forgot about it - well in 2019 I decided to take another crack at it and make a wildly popular rendition of this logo mashup combination - you may have seen it online (I made a North Side - Cubs and a South Side - White Sox version. Both featured elements of the Blackhawks, Bears and Bulls. I have made slightly different variations - some including the 6 star Chicago flag and others with different color arrangements. Fast forward to 2021 - A whole year of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had me yearning for another creative project that I can do for fun. I decided - why not give every city this same treatment? And so I did - "Major League Remix" (#MajorLeagueRemix). I will be posting the designs in this thread and would love some feedback! While I do consider these designs to be 'complete', as a true designer, I know there is always room for improvement, especially since teams change logos frequently. A few things to note (ground rules) for my concepts: They don't necessarily have to use the entire design of the logo in the mashup. They can be as little or as much as possible - the only rule is they have to look cohesive and make sense - no Frankenstein work! I often use past versions of team logos although I try to use the current ones as much as I can. This is because my goal is to make the logo look good, and if I use the core logo, it may not look the best. I have struggled a lot to piece some of these together because of the lack of uniqueness, clean design or symmetry so I have had to resort to alternates. Colors are fair game - as long as they are pulled directly from within the color palette of the city's sports logos. They all have a white border with rounded corners for consistency and also to set them up for sticker printing. That is all! I am so glad to be a part of this awesome forum - I can't think of a more perfect place to post this kind of work on the internet.

  6. Even since Washington wanted to do a rebrand, one name that keeps popping up as a fan favorite is the Red Wolves/RedWolves/Redwolves. I still think it can be a good name, but it also has one thing that all the other possibles names don't have: a back-up plan. See the name Redwolves has two things going against it: 1.Arkansas State owns the Red Wolves name. Which means Washington needs to reach a shared agreement with them in order to use it without litigation. 2. Even though the animal the name comes from, the red wolf, exists, too many people think that the Red part is forced trying to cram a part of the Washington history not needed. So in case we can't overcome either one of those, we can just make it the Washington Wolves. With WSH "starting over" and looking for a "new cultural identity", the name fits with their mission. I have been working on the logo for over a month now trying to get it right. And with the help of people on twitter as well as designers like UniMockups and Brandon Moore, I was able to achieve this snarling wolf! This logo has gone through a lot of versions! The main colors would be Burgundy and Gold, but the secondary colors really make the difference. The darker color is what I call Wolf Brown. A loose connection to the (Washington Football Team) past since that and the old gold are from the old days of Washington. But the biggest addition is the color blood orange (I call it the Nike color) which can be used the same way Seattle uses their bright green color. When you add claw marks to the logo as well as make a blackout (night) version, it really gives it a punch! And I also made a few secondary and alternate logo variations. The alternate logo is a simple one. The DC flag inside the pentagon, representing the military building. But the W is my biggest success. I was able to fit the Washington Monument in the W without using the whole monument like every other Ws have been. As for the helmet, I think the burgundy W on a white helmet with claw mark stripes is a great way to fit as a simple helmet design like the old teams of GB, CHI, and NY. And with the uniforms I wanted to add claw marks on the side, diagonally so it doesn't look like stretch marks (LOL) Here they are in Home, Away, Color Burst, and Blackout (Night) Like a good designer, this might not be the final form. But I am glad at what I achieved! Go Wolves of Washington!
  7. Some teams, like the Packers and Raiders, never need to change again. Others, like the Rams, Bengals, Titans, Cardinals and more, need to change ASAP. However, no matter how timeless/classic or dated/just bad they are, EVERY NFL team's uniform is going to be adjusted, starting with the.... Carolina Panthers 1.0 The Panthers current jerseys aren't bad(aside from the elongated pant stripe), but they could do without the silver. The helmet becomes black A new pointed triple stripe is added to the pants and helmet to match the shoulders Blue becomes the primary, while black becomes the alternate White jersey has blue numbers
  8. I've had a few recent field art ideas, and figured I should let em be seen, so here goes. Packers 1-essentially their sleeve stripe as Notre Dame-like slashes Packers 2-gold endzones with slash marks Saints 1-honestly, the Saints' real field kinda bores me whenever I see it. I thought diamonds could work here, and also figured it was high time for a NOLA endzone. The Big Chin Guy appears in the NOLA endzone, with the fleur de lis on his shield replaced by the NFC logo. The story behind that is I'd initially had the NFC logo in the last diamond there, but it made it look like it read NOLAN. Saints 2-same idea, but the endzone background is gold. Saints 3-gold diamonds Saints 4-gold diamonds on black Speak on it...I'll probably do some more, or whatever.
  9. A very fun project to design. NFL teams playing in the Major League Soccer. AFC complete today, anda tomorroy I'll post the NFC. AFC EAST
  10. Hey ya'll, So I started this project back in the spring (when quarantine hit), not intending for this to be anything serious. This was just something fun I could do from home while everything was locked down. But over the course of this year, I've just been knocking out 2-3 sets per week in my free time. And lo and behold, I've finally gotten through all 32 teams! Disclaimer: I'm by no means a "pro user", I drew all these up using MS Paint and they're nowhere near the level of detail that I've seen from some users on this site. I'm just good with Paint and it's good enough to get the job done, so that's what I used. A couple notes: I drew these sets up assuming there were no limiting factors (i.e., " the one helmet rule") that would affect uniform design. Teams can have as many different uniform/helmet combos as they want to. Every team will have at least 4 different uniform combinations: a Home set, a Road set, an Alternate set, and a Throwback set. Some will have more, some will have less. I also won't show every possible combination, just the ones I think look best together. I didn't just change things for the sake of changing them. If a team already has a good design, then I most likely didn't make any major design changes. With all that being said, I'll start out in the AFC East and work my way west. Comments/feedback welcome! AFC East Buffalo Bills v2.0 Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets AFC North Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals v2.0 v2.5 Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers AFC South Houston Texans v2.0 Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans AFC West Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Las Vegas Raiders Los Angeles Chargers v2.0 v2.5 NFC East Dallas Cowboys v2.0 v3.0 New York Giants v2.0 Philadelphia Eagles v2.0 Washington Football Team v1.0, aka "Washington Red Wolves") v2.0, aka "Washington Warriors" v3.0, aka "Washington Football Team" NFC North Chicago Bears v2.0 Detroit Lions v2.0 Green Bay Packers v2.0 Minnesota Vikings NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers v2.0 v3.0 New Orleans Saints v2.0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers v2.0 NFC West Arizona Cardinals v2.0 Los Angeles Rams v2.0 v2.5 San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks v2.0
  11. Greetings! With the NFL's decision to allow alternate helmets for throwback and color rush uniforms starting next year (great decision in my opinion!), I saw an article speculating on what the Houston Texans could do with the opportunity, and it inspired me to come up with an idea for that concept. This isn't anything revolutionary, but that wasn't the point. I recolored the Texans logo to use the colors of the old Houston Oilers, and designed the helmet around their old aesthetic. Whether the Titans would allow this, I'm not sure, but it does look pretty nice and I think it'd be a nice nod to the city's football past to roll out those old colors once in a while, especially with the Titans now using a color palette that isn't really much different from the Texans these days. Hope you all enjoy!
  12. The African American Sports & Entertainment Group -- an Oakland, California-based alliance of Black business people and community leaders -- wants to buy the City of Oakland's 50% share of the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex. (The Alameda County government agreed to sell its 50% interest in that tract of land to MLB's Oakland Athletics in April 2019.) The Oakland City Council has scheduled a tentative July 20 vote on whether or not to approve the AASEG's term sheet for the city's Coliseum site stake. (Coincidentally, July 20 is also when the council intends to vote on a term sheet for the Athletics' proposed Howard Terminal ballpark.) A "yes" vote on the AASEG's term sheet would allow that company to start to negotiate with the Oakland city government on a deal to buy the city's half of the site. https://www.sfchronicle.com/local-politics/article/A-s-surprised-that-Oakland-may-consider-16242444.php Among the AASEG's long-term goals is ownership of an NFL team that would not only play in Oakland at a new stadium within the Coliseum campus, but also be that league's first franchise with majority Black ownership. https://www.aasegoakland.com/nfl-team https://www.aasegoakland.com/stadium For now, the NFL has not gone public with any plan for further expansion (let alone within the United States). However, almost a year ago at this time, the AASEG went ahead and supplied the league with a letter of intent to file a formal application for a new franchise. https://www.aasegoakland.com/our-letter-to-the-nfl https://www.sfgate.com/sports/article/NFL-Oakland-team-community-stadium-plan-Goodell-15354429.php Since it is likely that the AASEG could buy an existing NFL club and then at least try to move that team to Oakland, I gave serious thought to posting all of this in the NFL "Relocation Roundelay" thread. Also, given the impact that the AASEG's quest could have on the Oakland Athletics' goal of full ownership of the Coliseum complex (even though the A's want to have a new ballpark away from that swath of land as soon as possible) or even the A's ownership's dream of a Howard Terminal development (which is intended to be funded partially by redevelopment of a 100%-A's-owned Coliseum site), this post might be a good fit also for the A's "Wheel of Relocation" thread. However, I decided ultimately that all of this information is unique enough and complex enough to deserve its own thread.
  13. 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, http://i419.photobucket.com/albums/pp274/wingdog2000/cow1_zps2e2f6c22.png http://i419.photobucket.com/albums/pp274/wingdog2000/redskn2_zpsc1e3bf33.png
  14. 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.)
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. ...oh Lord, please tell me this isn't it. Source
  18. I’ll preface this by saying a name like this should never see the light of day in the NFL. May I present... The Washington Battle-Ducks I’m not entirely sold on the duck foot design. I tried to incorporate an abstract “W” as well as a “hidden” Washington monument. After creating this, I discovered that “Ducks” were a form of military vehicle created for WW2 C&C is greatly appreciated!
  19. 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
  20. So we've all seen the leaks of the Bengals black and orange jerseys. Based on those leaks, I thought I'd take a guess on what the rest of the uniform will be. Since they keep emphasizing the terms clean and simple, and those were the same terms that got thrown around a few years back in the Jaguars redesign, I'm guessing the Bengals will go a similar route. The lack of the "B" logo anywhere on the jersey, as well as the teams insistence that the B is still their primary logo leads me to guess that it'll be on the hip of the pants. Stripe-less pants are definitely a current Nike signature, as well as three pants options. Also, although I'm not a fan, the solid color sock is where teams seem to be going. So based on all that, this is my guess. As always, I have zero inside knowledge, and zero psychic abilities, so it's only a guess.
  21. I had a thread a few years ago about if the NFL mandated that each team wear a white helmet. (the topic is now closed). I wanted to start the 2nd version with the division I never finished, the NFC West. First is the Rams, this was made before today's reveal, so sorry, no bone here...... This is the home set. I wanted to keep a balance of the three colors, but still making sure the blue/yellow were the stars. Here's the away. Finally the alternate.
  22. I opened this thread to get into a slew of uniform discussions. rules: 1 no extremists 2 agree to disagree is ok 3 pictures of what you think looks good are permitted 4 there will be lots of talk about monochrome This could be a disaster or it could be very productive!
  23. Another Super Bowl is in the books. Congrats to Tom Brady on his 7th Super Bowl ring, now the question is can he repeat in LA next year for Super Bowl LVI? The NFL has continued to go with a templated logo for next year's big game, though there is more color and other pluses, so I guess it's a step in the right direction. In any case, I've continued with my tradition of making a Super Bowl logo of my own for next year. Below is my design for Super Bowl LVI: since the game is in Los Angeles and since it's the first game in the Los Angeles area since Super Bowl XXVII, I decided to do a Hollywood/movie theme to make the Super Bowl seem like a grand premier event. I originally had a little more details in certain parts, specifically on the palm trees, but I felt that sometimes less is more for the eye. Let me know what you think!
