As many (most?) of you know, the (vast) majority of people think the new/current Los Angeles Clippers logo sucks... and for good reason. But spontaneously - out of absolutely nowhere - I came up with a brilliant concept. If nobody has thought of this before, I might actually be surprised. (Maybe a little?) Well, check this one out! It's a prototype that exemplifies the best of minimalist design (which is the trend du jour), while incorporating elements that make way too much sense. And yes - the red and blue used here is EXACTLY the same as that used in the current and former Los Angeles Clippers logos. The logo looks like a boat, which is a stand-in for a Clipper ship - the Los Angeles Clippers, which were originally based in the naval city of San Diego (as the San Diego Clippers), borrows its nickname from the aforementioned seafaring vessel. The logo incorporates a stylized "LA" (which you can see here), and the bottom of the logo incorporates a part of a basketball, which is commonplace for NBA logos. (By my count, two-thirds of all NBA teams have this as part of their primary logo.) Not to brag, but I say that this idea is too good to ignore. If someone improves upon this design and it gets some serious press, I've done my job already. Thoughts? Disclaimer: This work, illustrated herein, is an entirely original concept by sj10689 (the original author of this thread); any other logos/designs which have already been created prior to the posting of this comment, that bear any (striking) similarity, or is (almost) exactly the same, constitutes a circumstance which is purely coincidental. Therefore, as sj10689 is verily the creator of this work, which was not in any way inspired by, nor copied from any other pre-existing works, sj10689 assumes full ownership of this property. P.S.: I go by "Adam_Halverson" outside the forums, on sportslogos.net. I reposted this concept on the Los Angeles Clippers primary logo page.
In an alternate universe the American Football League was never created, instead it was the Federal Football League. Established in 1960, the FFL was a 16 team league with 2 conferences. There was the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. Eastern conference consisted of BOSTON ADMIRALS / BROOKLYN ISLANDERS / BUFFALO SCOUTS / HARTFORD COYOTES / CINCINNATI GENERALS / INDIANA MAVERICKS / MIAMI SHARKS / ORLANDO STINGRAYS. Western Conference consisted of COLORADO COMETS / HOUSTON WRANGLERS / KANSAS CITY WARRIORS / NASHVILLE RAMBLERS / LAS VEGAS OUTLAWS / LOS ANGELES TIGERS / OAKLAND PIRATES / UTAH YELLOWJACKETS. Federal Football League played 10 seasons (1960 - 1969). In 1970, the Federal Football League merged with the National Football League. This merger created the American Football league in 1970. The AFL consisted of 2 conferences. Federal Conference and National Conference. Federal Football League's 16 teams now made up the Federal Conference and the National Football League's 16 teams now made up the National Conference in the American Football League. In this universe the American Football League is the present day 32 team league (1970 - Present). Now back to the Federal Football League. Founded in 1960 with 16 teams, the Federal Football League was just as popular as the National Football League. Their title game was named the Champions Bowl. Here you can see each teams' logo, wordmark and helmet. Federal Football League Logo
