  1. Has this topic been discussed before regarding not quite accurate parts of sports logos/uniforms/stadiums in movies or tv shows? In the 1988 film “Naked Gun”, there’s a memorable funny scene where the main character, Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) disguises himself as an umpire during a game between the Angels and the Mariners. While the Mariners uniforms were accurate, the Angels were wearing red helmets instead of navy ones like they did in real life. The movie did get the navy caps (and the rest of the uniforms) correct however. https://briansgifs.tumblr.com/post/74542897964/the-way-baseball-should-be-played These are stadium-related inaccurate scenes rather than logo-related: - The Angels/Mariners games in the aforementioned Naked Gun movie is filmed in Dodger Stadium rather than the Angels’ home park (Angel Stadium in Anaheim) - In Major League (1989), the movie was filmed at County Stadium in Milwaukee rather than Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium. The 1994 sequel is filmed at Baltimore’s Camden Yards. The uniforms in both films are accurate based on the 1988 and 1993 seasons respectively. However, In Major League 2's movie cover, actor Corbin Bernsen is wearing a red undershirt with his uniform instead of navy as seen with Charlie Sheen. The Indians always wore navy socks/undershirts with those uniforms and never wore red in real life. - In one scene in Rookie of the Year (1993), the Cubs are on a road trip playing the Dodgers. The teams are clearly playing at New Comiskey Park (the White Sox ballpark) rather than Dodger Stadium. However, the uniforms throughout the movie are accurate (based on the 1992 season) - In Angels in the Outfield (1994), the movie was filmed at Oakland Coliseum (The A's ballpark, pre-Mount Davis) rather than Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The uniforms throughout the movie are accurate (based on the 1993 season) Here are some basketball ones: There were made-for-TV movies about Michael Jordan (MJ: an American Hero in 1999) and Dennis Rodman (Bad as I Wanna Be in 1998) in the late 1990s. Due to not getting rights to use NBA licenses (logos, uniforms, etc), the actors had to wear generic-looking uniforms in both films. The Jordan movie is on YouTube. Go to 1:13:16 to see the Bulls uniforms in the movie. However, the Rodman movie is not. Here's the ABC promo (plus a small clip of the Spurs "logo" at 0:08) Anyone else know any other sports logo/stadium inaccuracies in TV Shows or Movies? Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Soccer, etc.
  2. Let's have a little fun. With the majority of sports stadiums, arenas and ballparks named with a corporate sponsor ... what would you want YOUR team's venue to be called if corporate names weren't allowed? Here are mine ... Utah Jazz - Salt Palace or Miller Sports Arena San Francisco Giants - McCovey Park or South Beach Park Pittsburgh Steelers - Rooney Field Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls - Chicago Stadium II or Madison Street Arena
  3. I'm the commissioner of the OklahomIraqis League (The OIL), which is a fantasy football league that began in 2006 in Iraq. I recently started toying around in Photoshop and created stadiums for all 42 teams: okiraqi.org/stadiums Since I'm still pretty new to Photoshop (and graphic design in general), I'd appreciate it if you point out ways I could make things look more realistic. One thing I haven't been able to get right is keeping the grass or turf texture when applying graphics to the field and end zones. Otherwise, I'm just happy to show off the stadiums while we get through the long, awful offseason. Below is the one for DominationStation (which, yes, is a dumb name, but it's not my team). The rest are at the above link.
  4. What stadiums/arenas do you think are in need of a renovation or one that should have one Mine would be the carrier dome images credit is the Syracuse sb nation site
  5. This is something I've wanted to do for a while. I like the "create-a-team" or "Team Builder" feature in sports games and for years, (seriously, ever since the Nintendo 64 days) I've always wanted to go deeper into the customization of the teams. Even though they've come a long way, it's still pretty limited. So, in an effort to send out my ideas that I've had ever since I was a kid, I'm starting a "Create-a-_______" series for this forum. Starting with: Now before any of you get too excited, there is no official word on NCAA Football coming back this year. I HOPE it does, but it's still just a rumor at this point. This game features "TeamBuilder", and with all the logo/branding junkies here, I know several of you are glad that it exists but feels that it could be a bit better than what it is. I could go on about the uniforms, but I'll get to those later. What I really want to focus on for this thread is the stadium creation part of Team Builder, which is lacking. And by lacking, I mean all you're really doing is designing the field (also limited) and picking from a preset design. That would be fine, but if you're like me, that ain't good enough. During the week, I'll get into more detail, maybe even designing menu screens to let you fully see what my vision is for a "StadiumBuilder" feature. I'll also post real-world examples with each category. Stay tuned, folks.
  6. So I previously did a concept called "stadium series" and decided I wanted to make a league out of it. So without further ado, I present the North American Baseball Association (NABA). First team up, the San Antonio Rebels. I really love the way this turned out! The stadium is called HEB Park. The backdrop of the field is a little shopping area with a strip mall, HEB, mall, and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Behind home plate there is a commercial district with an arena, office building, and parking garage. View from the entrance behind home plate. here you can see the backdrop, and also the tall wall in left field, which is 35' high, because the park is only 290' to left. The wall also doubles as the visitors clubhouse, the team offices, as well as the rooftop deck which fans can sit/stand on during the games. As said above, here is the view from the rooftop deck. Not much else to be seen here. Here is the view from the top step of the Rebels dugout down the first base line, where you can see the old school scoreboard on the left field wall, as well as the Alamo shaped scoreboard on top of the roof. Here is the view from the visitors dugout, and you can see down the 310' right field line. Also note the Alamo replica building which is the Rebels clubhouse. The clubhouse is several levels, with the training rooms, batting cages, and extra amenities underground. Here's a view from the Rebels clubhouse, where you can see the home plate and third base line entrances, as well as the club level, which has 17 suites, the press box, and the club level bleachers. Here is the view from behind home plate, most of what is to be seen has already been noted, so I won't touch on it anymore. Ariel view of HEB Park. Parking lot in right field, with the main entrance in the right field corner.
  7. Hello all, I am a high school student that likes to design sports stadiums, mainly baseball. I will begin to post my work in this thread, and I might throw in some logos every now and then on top of the stadiums. With that being said, here is my progress on my first stadium. I would like some help in naming the team, color scheme, and naming the stadium. That way, I can create a logo and add some unique elements into the stadium. I will continue to update my progress, and this stadium shouldn't take to long to finish.
  8. So while browsing the interwebs this morning I discovered the news that the US Airways Center in Phoenix has been renamed the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Ugh. That got me thinking ... what are some HORRIBLE names you've come across for stadiums and arenas. I'm talking mainly here in the US and Canada. But, the big leagues, minor leagues, etc. Ones that stand out as DUMB off the top of my head are ... Talking Stick Resort Arena; PhoenixEnergySolutions Arena; Salt Lake CitySAP Center at San JoseO.co Coliseum; OaklandGlobe Life Park at ArlingtonMinute Maid Park; HoustonUniversity of Phoenix Stadium; GlendaleEverBank Field; JacksonvilleBefore the name change Jobing.com Arena was just as horrid as some of these. What else would you add to this list?
  9. So driving back and forth to work, I pass by the Knoxville Civic Auditorium, home of the Minor League Hockey Knoxville Ice Bears. This building is U-G-L-Y ugly. It was built in 1961 and looked out of date as soon as 1967. It's concrete monstrosity that the picture I am about to show does not do justice too. The building is not that bad from a structural design standpoint what makes it ugly is the awful patterned concrete on the exterior that has not aged well (both physically, and visually). While that photo really doesn't do the tackyness justice, this Street View probably will What in your guys opinion is the ugliest stadium?
  10. Custom baseball stadiums that I hand-draw.
  11. Hi guys! I love logos from the 70's and I thought a great way to see sports-related 70's logos I have never seen would be to create a thread dedicated to arena and stadium logos that were created in the 70's. I have some examples below and everyone is more than welcome to submit their favorites. 1) The Hartford Civic Center actually had TWO logos in the 70's: one that looked eerily similar to the Caldor's department store rainbow, and one that was a ligature of an H and two C's. 2) Here is what the Nassau Coliseum logo looked like in the 70's (I like how it looks like a bird's eye view of a circular stadium with a track and playing surface in the center):
  12. I've always been intruiged with how teams display retired numbers in different fashion. The league-wide retirement of #42 allows you to compare each teams' numbers fairly easily. As a Mets fan, I hate the way they do it. But why does the number matter when they dedicated the entrance of the ballpark to a guy who didn't ever play for the team? The Mets decision making process in regards to which numbers they choose to retire has always been a joke (no Piazza), so why would they do a good job with 42? Also they've put a new seating area in front of the numbers that totally obscure them. But I digress ... Moving on, how does your team immortalize Jackie Robinson's 42. Post pictures of 42 so we can see them all in one post.
