  1. I guess we're starting to look forward to the 2018-19 season with the recent news of the Charlotte Hornets wearing the white version of their classic throwbacks next year. Just on a side note, it'll be interesting to see if the Hornets follow that up in 2019-20 with their purple throwback jerseys? Obviously that's just speculation. As far as other changes at this point, I am not sure if we've heard anything else. I would assume more teams will wear classic throwbacks and we'll see a new wave of community jerseys since apparently those will be a yearly change for some if not all teams?
  2. Because I'm sure just having a TCU only thread wouldn't be as accepted, I decided to just go ahead and get a jump on next season (if that's ok)... I really hope they downplay the "Frogskin" this time. The Boykin era uniforms were perfect.
  3. I was Googling earlier this afternoon and found this prototype Phoenix Suns jersey from the early '70s. I am assuming that it was around the time they switched to their famous Western Font style. Does anyone have any info on it? It also made me interested in finding other prototype jerseys in the Big Four. I am aware of the Nordiques and a Padres jersey from the '90s. Does anyone else have any they want to share here?
  4. Well with a couple of games played I have really enjoyed the alliance so I decided to make some concepts. I think each uniform is pretty good from a design stand point and most teams thankfully have contrasting socks, so I didn't go too crazy with designs. I intend for all the teams with logos to be on both sides of the helmet. I also got ride of the side panels on all the uniforms because I just think they dont look too good. I may make alternates and away jerseys at a later time but I heres my take on the AAF. First up is the Hotshots and the Stallions. I really love that the Hotshots went with a yellow jersey because its a unique look that they can own. I kept the helmet, the font and the color balance the same. I used a similar stripe pattern to mimic the stripes on the starter jackets the coaches usually wear. I also added a full pants stripe for a more professional look. For the Stallions agin kept the basic color balance the same because I think its a great new look that has grown on me since the release. The biggest change was to fill the sleeve caps with the part of the logo so the stallion can be implemented into the look. I thought of putting it on the helmet but I like the way the mane looks. Font is the same and I made the pant stripe more prominent. Next is the Apollos and the Express. When it came to designing the Apollos I wanted to balance the colors better, but keep the same distribution throughout the uniform. The shoulder yoke was okay but I ended up scraping it for a contrasting collar and sleeve caps. I liked the font and decided to use a orange drop shadow as the main design element on the whole uniform. Another thing I think the AAF needs is sleeve cap TV numbers because every team has them on the shoulders. I know some people dont like the orange socks but I think it can work because of the facemask. Finally I wasnt a fan of the way they appiled the helmet logo so its in a basic placement. The Express I felt was lacking any real design elements besides basic color blocking. Again I wanted numbers on the sleeve caps and got rid of the weird fading stripe design. I replaced it with a standard classic football stripe that ties in with the helmet logo better. The helmet is the same although I pondered removing the fade. I know the jersey is basic and looks kind of like the Texans, but I thought it worked for the overall design. On to the Legends and Iron. I think the Legends already have a great look so not too much change here. However I added the crown to the sleeve caps and used the arm trim as part of the logo. I really disliked the look of their pants stripe so I just matched it to the helmet stripe for consistency. I also love their number font, it has a nice retro modern look to it. I know a lot of people dislike how plain the Iron's uniforms are, but I think it adds variety to the league. I also think the logo less helmet works great and puts emphasis on the stripe. The number font is great and I added to the sleeve caps rather than shoulder numbers. I wanted to match the helmet stripe on the pants, but I kept their unique side panel design on the pants. The biggest change was to have contrasting socks because every football team needs them unless mono white. Last but no least, Fleet and Commanders. The Fleet were a team I thought went a little crazy with their uniform design, but they have grown on me in the last couple of weeks. I kept the helmet the same besides the logo which different on the in-game helmets. For the Jerseys used the chevron design on the shoulders and move the number to the sleeve. I debated what I wanted to do with the numbers, I like the font, however didnt know if I wanted to keep the drop shadow. I tried yellow number with a gray shadow and vice versa, but it didn't look to great so I went with solid numbers. For the pants I added a full stripe and kept the chevrons to match the helmet. I felt the need to keep the yellow socks to balance out all the yellow in the rest of the uniform. When I first saw the Commanders I loved the number font and helmets but the rest seemed crowed to me. To fix this I wanted them to have a more classic look with sleeve and pant striping. Nothing too special, but the pants stripes may be too crazy for some. I also tried to distribute the colors better than they currently are. Constructive criticism is welcomed and I'd like to hear your guys thoughts on the AAF and the direction its going with its Stater uniforms. I think they did a great job for a new league, but they could be more personalized.
  5. Guys, I'm in the process of delivering a complete overhaul of the NFL. Over the next few months I'll upload all 32 teams. I'll start with New York Jets and Cleveland Browns. AFC East Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets AFC West Denver Broncos Kansas City Chiefs Los Angeles Chargers Oakland Raiders AFC North Baltimore Ravens Cincinnati Bengals Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers AFC South Houston Texans Indianapolis Colts Jacksonville Jaguars Tennessee Titans NFC East Dallas Cowboys New York Giants Philadelphia Eagles Washington Redskins NFC West Arizona Cardinals Los Angeles Rams San Francisco 49ers Seattle Seahawks NFC North Chicago Bears Detroit Lions Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers New Orleans Saints Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hope you like.
  6. Hey all. Coaching a little league baseball team this spring and need some help picking out some options. We are the Pirates so we are rocking a black and yellow color scheme. Our hats and jerseys are already decided and can't be changed which is a black hat and a yellow jersey with a black side panel and Pirates across the chest in a weird black and yellow checkered font with a white outline (posted below) Right now we prefer the classic white pants with a black belt but were not sure if we want to go black or yellow socks. Or we can go with the throwback look the real Pirates are donning now with a black hat, yellow jersey, black pants look. Opinions appreciated, thanks.
  7. 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.
  8. Considering the NFL had it's first major throwback uniform season in 1994 to celebrate the league's 75th season, I've been wondering for years how the NFL's 100th season in 2019 would look as far as uniforms are concerned. Since it is now only three years away I thought I would make a post about it so we can see who was right when 2019 does finally get here. If the 75th season can give us any ideas, they would be that every team will wear a 100th season jersey patch (every team wore a diamond-shaped 75th Season jersey patch in 1994, even on the throwback uniforms) but I think that's where the similarities between the two seasons will end. I do think special uniforms will be worn in 2019, but I don't think they will be throwbacks. The throwback trend seems to be dead for multiple reasons (played out / losing popularity, pretty much run out of interesting old uniforms to bring back, players must wear the same helmet throughout the season now so that eliminates a lot of options, etc.) so I'm guessing in 2019 to celebrate the 100th Season of the league they will do a throw forward year, with every single team having Color Rush (or some other gimmick) games or having Nike design "Pro Combat" style one-off uniforms designed to be worn with each team's normal helmet. If you don't count Super Bowl XXIX, when the league let the 49ers wear their 1994 throwbacks longer than teams were initially allowed and throwout the playoffs and Super Bowl, I believe Super Bowl LIV, played at the end of the 2019 season, could be the first year we see alternate jerseys or special one-off "Pro Combat" uniforms in the Super Bowl, if it doesn't happen this year for Super Bowl 50 (could be a nice game day or game time surprise for the 50th celebration.) In addition to "throw forward" and "Pro Combat" uniforms I'm sure the NFL will make an exception and let the two teams that played in the very first season of the NFL and are still around have a throwback year like they did for the original AFL teams in 2009 for the 50th Anniversary of the AFL. That means the Bears would throwback as the Decatur Staleys and the Cardinals would throwback as the Chicago Cardinals (that would be an interesting game: Chicago vs Chicago! With 1920 throwbacks!!!) So what do you guys think? What do you think is going to happen three years from now during the 100th Season of the NFL as far as team uniforms and logos are concerned?
  9. 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!
  10. FINISHED CONCEPTS: Cavalry FC (Calgary) FC Edmonton Forge FC (Hamilton) Halifax Wanderers Pacific FC (Vancouver Island) Valour FC (Winnipeg) York 9 FC Fury FC (Ottawa) CF Québec ----- Hey! Long time no see! ? Since it's been announced that Canada is getting its own first tier soccer/football league, I was pretty stoked when they announced Winnipeg as one of the cities to get a team (since I live in MB and all that jazz). So I decided to make some kits for all the teams that are in the league (so far): To start things off: Here's Cavalry FC! (Top is home, Bottom is away) Template created by Michael Danger aka Raysox C+C appreciated!
  11. After last night's Thursday Night Football debacle, the Arizona Cardinals remain winless in their Color Rush blacks. Was thinking what other uniforms are cursed with bad luck in the world of sports? Here are a few extreme cases that I can name: Arizona Cardinals Black Color Rush (winless in this uniform): Boston Celtics Black Sides Alternate (winless in the playoffs in these uniforms): Denver Broncos Orange Uniforms (winless in the Super Bowl in this color): New York Knicks Orange Alternate (winless in this uniform):
  12. On April 21, 2001 at the conclusion of the first of that American staple we call "The Big Game at the End", as we watched the Xtreme lift that big X over their heads, we thought that the XFL would be taken away from us forever. But apparently, there are rumblings that the X Football League might be fixin' to make a comeback! Now if that's true, which I hope it is, first of all I'll be tuning in for sure, and second of all they're gonna have to tone down the 2001 more than a few notches. Especially with NFL ratings in steep decline this season, this is the perfect time for Vince McMahon to swoop in and create the Anti-NFL, or the Xtra-Fun League, if you will. But image is everything. And safety, safety's probably in there somewhere too. We'll see. So I want to get way out ahead of the rumors and set up what I think would be a fitting return for the XFL 18 years later. I'm not gonna quibble over the actual rulebook, I'll let them figure that out, but I do know what I'd like to see design wise. Here are my design rules: 1. There are no rules! Actually, there are a few. They're right here. 2. No white allowed. Off-white is allowed in small doses, as well as silver, but stark white is not allowed on Logos, Uniforms, or Merchandise of any kind. 3. Helmets are a canvas. No more small, tame, rinky-dink helmet logos. Helmets should be loud and expressive of a team's design, serving as the centerpiece of their uniform. 4. 3 logos per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Insignia: main logo, Proxy: secondary, Character: letter logo 5. 3 uniforms per team, no more and no less. They are as follows; Base: worn at home, Clash: worn on the road, Army: outside the box third jersey worn at home. 6. Unique NOBs are still allowed, but have to be approved before being applied to jersey. So there you have 'em, my official design rules for the XFL! I'll be following these closely for all eight teams (more on teams ahead). The New Official Logos of the XFL The original XFL logo was rushed and horrible, so I wanted to make a logo that would completely change people's view of the league. Modernized, but as no nonsense as always. This was my creative process, pardon the roughness. Early thoughts were that I'd like to include a lightning bolt in the X or make the X from negative space, but I ended up choosing something closest to the lowest logo on the center left because I liked the unique shape and inclusion of a football. After some retooling, I ended up with a result I'm really happy with that includes an Insignia, Proxy, and Character logo for the league. The Insignia uses a combo football/shield shape with half of the X made by stitches; football or otherwise. Teams Here's the thing, I don't know the teams yet. I know the cities, but I don't know the teams. The reason being this is going to be a step-by-step project so I'll be including my entire process, part of which is choosing the names of all 8 teams. I'd love to hear any names you can come up with as well! Here are the eight locations: Boston (new) Chicago Detroit (new) Las Vegas California New York St. Louis (new) Texas (new) So there it is, The new XFL! What do you think of the idea, setup, and first trio of logos? Your feedback is incredibly important to me, so don't hold back with the C&C! Thanks guys, and stay tuned for Boston!
  13. The 2018 High School football season kicks off tonight here in Michigan so I thought it would be a good time to start this up again. Please post what local schools in your area are wearing or any other schools you happen to find. Now that we are in the 2018 season I see more and more schools switching to one of the 3 big brands (Nike, Adidas, UA) however there are still some schools wearing brands like Wilson, Riddell, Russell Athletic. I also see more schools usually the bigger ones following the college teams and adding multiple alternate uniforms and in some instances alternate helmets.
  14. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.
  15. This is the story of the International Velo Federation (IVF). In this thread you will be able to follow from the very beginnings the history of how the IVF came to be and each and every event thereafter. In keeping with this being a thread on a design website the story is going to feature many logo, uniforms, and even stadium designs and changes. I welcome comments, opinions, and questions. Also, in keeping with this being a design website I will try my best to discuss what I was thinking as I created the designs you will see. As for the sport itself, Velo is a made-up bicycle racing game. The basic synopsis is this. Games are played in 3-5 races that are called sets. In a set each team has 3 riders competing, so altogether between the two competing teams 6 riders are on the track (Velodrome) per set. Only one team can score in a set. A point is scored by each rider who finishes before the first finisher on the losing team. So, in a given set the most a team can score is 3 points. If you sit and consider how this will work, that is why game lengths range from 3-5 sets. If by the third sets completion one team has 7 and the other had 0, the last two sets are not needed to be played because only 6 possible points remain on the board. Even if the trailing team got them all the final score would be 7-6 and they would still lose. This may become clearer as this thread plays out. I am going to post a detailed game sheet for every game ever played. Again, I welcome questions. They will help to clarify as this goes on. On a team’s roster there are 6 riders and a coach. A team may also have 1 or 2 assistant coaches. The players are listed on a roster by position; Leadoff (this is also the captain and most often fastest rider on the team), Middle, Cleanup, First Option, Second Option, and Third Option. The first three (Leadoff, Middle, and Cleanup) make up a team’s line or starters. They will be the players to race in the first set of games. The other three positions make up the bench or options. These are the players that may be rotated in for the later sets. At least one bench player will see action in the game because rules dictate that at least one change in lineup must be made one set to another and no rider may be in more then three consecutive sets of a game. There are exceptions to the rules laid out in this paragraph but as to not congest this initial post to much those can be explained in due time or through your encouraged questions. So, to begin allow me to give the quick back story set up and then end for tonight with the first logos and uniforms.
  16. The Cincinnati Reds have worn their current set since 2007, and while it is an improvement over the BFBS era of 1999-2006, I have never been a fan of the black-billed road caps and gimmicky font. Is it time for a change? If so, which direction should they go? I will forever be a fan of the simple yet elegant set of 1968-71, and I'd love to see it return. I've said it before, but if they had just kept that look from that point forward, they would be considered unchangeable classics along with teams like the Dodgers, Yankees, and Cardinals. While I loved the pullovers and elastic waistbands as a kid in the 1970s, I now regret that the greatest seasons in the history of the franchise happened in those, rather than the more traditional set that proceeded them. As for the current set, they have lasted longer than most in the history of the franchise. Here's a rundown of their previous looks dating back to 1939, ordered by length of tenure: 1972 - 1992 (21 seasons) -- Pants leg stripe and second red sleeve stripe added 1988-92 1939 - 1955 (17 seasons) -- Blue highlights 1939-46, Red highlights 1947-55 2007 - Present (12 Seasons) 1999 - 2006 (8 seasons) 1993 - 1998 (6 Seasons) 1961 - 1966 (6 Seasons) 1956 - 1960 (5 Seasons) 1967 - 1971 (4 Seasons) -- Pinstripes on home uniform for 1967 season only
  17. As I've made clear for some time, I'm a big fan of football and I'm currently living in Japan. To my surprise, I found that there is a big following of American football here and there are LOTS of colleges and universities that play football here. There is even a pro league and a championship game that pits the college champion vs the pro champion. It's call the Rice Bowl. I thought I would take the opportunity to share some of the cool logos and uniforms of all the teams from Japan. I'm going to start out going league by league and providing the top tier or division 1 teams first, then work my way down to any other teams that may be interesting to share. I hope you guys enjoy it and maybe it might open you up to learning more about American football here in Japan.
  18. To kick this series off, I'm going with the Dolphins, Titans and Jaguars since those are the teams that will soon unveil new designs in the real world. (Please hold template requests, I will provide at end of the series in SVG format) THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE BY BRAVE-BIRD 08 MIAMI DOLPHINS For Miami I wanted to focus on using layers of white and dark grey to mimic an actual dolphin, while letting a more vibrant teal and shade of orange pop off the uniform. I've seen a lot of Miami concepts in the past use the sunburst as a focal point of the design, so I wanted to go in a different direction and use the swooping feel of the logo to tie the look together. The helmet is much more modern iteration, while the pants are intended to echo the feel of the helmet as well. ALTERNATES ONE | ALTERNATES TWO | ALTERNATES THREE Thanks for viewing! Next up: Tennessee Titans
  19. A few months ago the Jags came out with a new uniform set. The Jags are my second fave team behind the Bucs and I was curious about them. They were revealed and had very mixed reception. I decided to save my judgment until I've seen more of it. I may do this with the Titans who also got a big overhaul at some other point. After letting it marinate and doing research on what NIKE and the Jags organization wanted from these I've come to a solid conclusion. My opinion may change when I see them on field but for now I feel I've seen enough of them Helmet- The helmet is amazing. It is simple but looks beautiful. I'm glad they didn't go matte because I really think matte black helmets look kind of cheap compared to colored ones. overall 10/10 Jersey- So I am very mixed about these jersey sets. On one hand I appreciate the clean look but on the other hand it just looks so boring. I don't think clean and boring are synonymous but these don't invoke any feeling out of me. Everything about these just screams 'fine'. The numbers are okay. I prefer the old font but these are okay I think they look a bit too wide but it is serviceable. There is very little detail to them to talk about. I don't mind the tiny jaguar head on the chest but it also looks kind of awkward. I don't mind patches but with teams like the Steelers or the Jets the patches look much more natural. Here with the jaguars it doesn't work for me. The JAGS patch honestly looked much better as a patch and here it felt like cheap NFL branding. I do prefer it over a big wordmark above the numbers though. The numbers have embezzled trim that matches the color of the jerseys but it isn't noticeable from afar. I also think the cuffs of the sleeves look rather strange with the colored tips. It is even stranger as close up they have these claw marks but they aren't noticeable so it is whatever 5/10 Pants and socks- Again not much to talk about very plain. The back of the pants have this weird teal half stripe for some reason. The socks do look nice with the teal stripe at the bottom but that is it 5/10 So my final grade is a 6.6/10. It is an okay look for now but it definitely feels like an over correction of the previous. They are kind of disappointing especially with all the talk of tradition and makes it more annoying when you watch the documentary on them. Some direct quotes from it 'We have three players who should be in the HoF... And with these new uniforms we want people to think back to these players' 'The teal is the heart of the brand' 'The uniforms are simple, bold, traditional and distinct' It just feels like they are saying one thing and doing another. They want to essentially combine the past and present but gives a look that is nothing like the old school design. They say teal is the heart of the brand but make black the primary. They say they are simple, bold, traditional and distinct but only one of those fits the description. I honestly feel the Jags should embrace crazy designs but also be good. They are a 90s team with a unique color pallet it is kind of silly to act like they are a founding NFL team. Teams like the Giants can have simple uniforms because they are an old school team the Jags aren't. I understand the reason but I just feel they went from one extreme to another. Now how would I fix them? - Use the old font. It looked good and fit the branding. It is also basically an updated version of the older rounded font - Have gold and teal/black trim on the number - Remove the jaguar head from the chest and move it to the front of the pants - Perhaps add some kind of claw mark striping on the sleeve caps and pants. Maybe even introduce an updated version of their full body jaguar logo - Have teal be the primary I just personally feel these uniforms are a decent start but take themselves way too seriously. I saw someone on reddit do an analyst on the old set and he said the biggest problem is they lacked an identity. To me these uniforms have even less identity and persists with the problem. Honestly the old set was just a few tweaks from being perfect just use a full black helmet and remove some of the excess stuff and they'd have been amazing In summary they are perfectly fine and should definitely add onto them in the future and embrace the teal and gold instead of black and white
  20. So..."Biggest upgrades" and "Biggest downgrades" are already a thing on here. I figured I may as well start the only remaining thread in the series. In your opinion, which uniforms kept the quality close to the same level as their predecessors? For me the classic example would be the lateral move made by the Denver Broncos in 1997. They went from good uniform to good uniform (in my opinion anyway) while changing the dark jersey color and radically altering their design. The 1996 Philadelphia Eagles were similar - big changes, but all in all went from middling to middling. If there is a bad-to-bad lateral move...that one's a little trickier. I'm sure someone can fill us in though.
  21. One question that has been bugging me is how to define what make a good or bad design. Specifically, what are the aesthetic maxims that any designer ought to follow to make a "football uniform" or "baseball uniform" or "hockey uniform." Given those rules, can they be bent or broken in certain scenarios? So for example a baseball uniform in my mind, follows the following rules: Home uniforms should have either pinstripes or piping (collar, headspoon, sleeve cuff, pants) BUT NEVER both. Undershirts should match either the very top or bottom of the stirrup (sanitary socks do not count unless they are a non-white color) Whatever script is on the front of a jersey should match the numbers on the back in terms of colors. For example red outlined in blue for both the team name and the number on the back. Belts should match either the cap or the cleats, preferably both. Pants piping should be no wider than 1 inch. Piping should match from the jersey to the pants in some capacity. Softball tops should generally be worn with a cap of the same or darker color. The squatchee on the cap should match the brim when the brim is a different color from the crown. If the brim is the same color as the crown, the squatchee can be any color.
  22. I don’t get why people seem to hate anything Nike does because it’s too ‘complicated’. I don’t get the hate. I love that kind of stuff and don’t understand what is wrong with them. Sure sometimes they look bad but sometimes it feels like people hate them simply because Nike. Like I don’t get the hate for the jags old set. Besides the helmet I really loved the set. The biggest criticism is that it is ‘too complicated’ but they never clarify it. I just think they looked really sleek. And now they are saying the same about the Titans new look Like why? Because god forbid we get a set that isn’t generic and stands out from the crowd. The sword on the sleeeves look awesome. Worst of all people will outright ignore problems of ‘classic’ sets because they’re classic and through fore means they’re perfect. Like the 49ers pants are a disgusting cream yellow and inconsistent striping but everyone treats them like they’re perfect. With the jags new uniforms people are outright praising them for being as generic as possible. I don’t get. They’ll always be a place for simplistity but why can’t we get fun and crazy uniforms too? Why does every uniform have to look the same? Id like some real criticisms to why the titans and jags old uniforms were bad and not ‘owe of course they’re bad just look at those sword and :censored:’ I want legitimate criticisms and it has to be consistent (example if you hate the jags patch for looking too cluttered you have to hate the Steelers patch too)
  23. A lot of people here at the mothership reference the NFL's "five year rule" when it comes to changes in uniforms, helmets, logos and so forth. But what is the rule, exactly? Well, thanks to my bothering to look it up, I'm providing the answer for future, I'm sure scholarly, discussion. The "five year rule" is represented by a resolution adopted by the NFL's Executive Council as "2002 Resolution G-3." The formatting might get a little wonky below but its current form, verbatim (verbatim to the point where I'm even following the author's mistake in that the NFL's Constitution and Bylaws uses roman numerals, thus there is no "Article 19," but rather an "Article XIX"), is as follows... But wait... there's more! Only this I have to modify from the original text's layout because it's in table format... Isn't that simple to understand?
  24. Well its been promised for years and I finally finished the league last night! I will post two teams today then the rest next week. The concept behind this for those that have not followed my fictional league MLF, is that the MLF decided they needed a developmental league but did not want to brand it as such. They came up with MLF Spring League as a branding. There are eight teams one for every 4 teams in the MLF. The design of the league would be to name a managing partner that each club could agree on with equal investments coming from each team. The results have been pretty good so far. Here is the league logo.
