  1. 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...
  2. So this is the series I mentioned about in my new look NHL, which now will be going on alongside this series, the AFL-NHL crossover! Australian Rules Football is an amazing sport that I wish had more of a global presence, especially here in Canada. For you folks who don't know what this sport is, here you go. I discovered it two years ago, and am now a proud supporter of the Western Australian teams. This idea came to mind when the folks at HJC started the AIHL (Australian Ice Hockey League) redesign. I'd been wanting to do another crossover series, and everything just clicked. Adelaide Crows (alt) Brisbane Lions Carlton Blues Collingwood Magpies Essendon Bombers Fremantle Dockers (alt) Geelong Cats (alt) Gold Coast Suns GWS Giants (alt) Hawthorn Hawks Melbourne Demons North Melbourne Kangaroos Port Adelaide Power Richmond Tigers St Kilda Saints Sydney Swans West Coast Eagles (update) Western Bulldogs I will be starting off with the two recent grand finalists, Richmond and Adelaide, then going down the ladder (standings). So without further ado, here we go! First off are the newly crowned premiers after 37 years, the Richmond Tigers. The team's jumpers (uniforms) are black with a yellow sash, so I turned it into a chest stripe to fit in with other hockey jerseys. The aways are yellow as a tribute to the jumpers the tigers won the premiership in. The sock stripes are inspired by the team's past home jumpers. The numbers are white like they are on the club's jumpers. C&C appreciated!
  3. With the recent announcement that the Tampa Bay Storm will cease operations. I thought to go back and look at the various looks they have sported throughout their history. The Storm would begin life in Pittsburgh as the green and gold Gladiators, debuting a unique logo that incorporated an arm into the letter. 1987-1990 look Very little would change other than a switch to white pants with a solid green line down the side from gold pants that had a alternating white green stripe in 1988 In 1991, the Gladiators will move to Tampa and ditch the green and gold for blue, black, and silver. It will last from 1991 to 1997 The helmet logo was the Storm wordmark outlined in white minus the Tampa Bay Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of the Storms 90s uniforms was the zubaz. It appears the Storm wore a blue helmet for their road unis The Storm logo on the blue helmet was white with the lightning over the o silver In addition, the Storm had a Chargers-esque black alternate The Storm would introduce gold in 1997 ditching the black, silver, and zubaz for blue and gold. The logo was modified to slant the Storm wordmark and shrunk the Tampa Bay so it can be over the S and T. The most eye catching change was the O which was changed from the old lightning design to be in the shape of an "storm". This look will last from 1997 till 2011 making this their longest lasting look and they tweaked the jerseys quite a bit over the span. Unlike previously, the logo was not modified for the Helmet 1997 uniforms: number in gold outlines with storm wordmark on sleeve. alternating gold blue tsripe 1998 had the blue darkened to navy and a gold dropshadow added no drop shadow on home unis The pants were white for both road and home with alternating gold blue stripes Font for road unis were changed in 2001 with gold outline and black dropshadow (pictured on the right) 2003 saw the addition of a gold side panel and the blue stripe is thinned. storm logo on sleeves. First sign of mono uniforms The Storm made it to the Arenabowl in 2003 and they seemed to have switched out the storm logo on the sleeve for GV on the right side while on the left sleeve, the wordmark was put road unis unchanged outside of storm logo in place of jersey manufacturer, Storm logo is filled in with blue 2004 had the stripes removed and the Storm logo was removed while wordmark is added 2006: drop shadow removed Gold panels reduced to stripes. numbers filled in with gold 2007 brought with it gold numbers and a white outline. numbers are no longer filled in and storm wordmark on top of number in front side Storm wordmark replaced with logo and the stripes are restored with Storm wordmark incorporated into it Road unis have blue numbers with gold outlines and the dropshadow is restored In a rare moment,the Storm did not tweak the unis as far as I know The 2009 AFL season was cancelled but returned for 2010 no changes for 2010 2011 saw the Tampa Bay Storm brighten the blue and gold and tweaking the logo to include a gold drop shadow to the storm and the storm O to more resemble a football. Tampa Bay position is more akin to 90s logo and no longer over S and T The blue helmet and white facemask return, Storm football logo is on sleeve, gold sidepanel on shirt, storm wordmark on front on top of numbers. What really stands out besides other than the brightened colors is the piping which extends from under the armpits down to the pants where it ends in a curve Uniforms remained unchanged until 2015 when they extended piping Piping on white jersey colored yellow so it stands out more Their final season in 2017 will see the complete removal of piping and the panels replaced with slanted panels and diagonal stripes 2017 would also see the glorious return of the zubaz unis

  5. Hi guys. This is my modernized version of the current Arena Football League primary mark from 2009. It's no horrible logo at all, but I think it already looks dated. I wanted to keep it simple, with bold lines, easy to reproduce. The alternate mark is the same logo, with AFL written-out underneath. For those who like to take a look at the AFL's current mark: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/116089752009/_Arena_Football_League/2009/Primary_Logo Primary mark on white, navy and red background Alternate mark on different backgrounds
