This one isn't going to be as extensive as the others since I'm unable to participate in all of the events, but I would like some feedback on the events I did enter into. I'm a beginner and mostly self-taught so I need all the help I can get. Be blunt, be brutal. 

 

EVENT 1

I wanted to go with something a little different in shape and style, but I think I swung and missed pretty hard here. Since I started with the acronym I had a hard time figuring out how to make the full text look good within the boundaries I had already set and it shows. Also, looking at the silhouette I used, it looks more like basketball in football pads than a depiction of "the catch." Anyway, what do you think?

I liked the use of the football player on the left in the oval, and alone, was a nice image. My problem with this logo was the blue block with the league name/acronym in them. I feel that had you extended the white outside the oval to make a border on that it would've helped. And I wasn't a fan of the blue on the left not being consistent through the oval (it's definitely narrower in the middle than the top and bottom).

EVENT 4

Looking at the other entries for this event it wasn't a surprise that my entry yielded zero votes. It's pretty plain, nothing special about it at all.

Event 1: I think a more thoughtful choice of typeface could have helped the log a lot. That diagonal on the right edge is almost begging for an italic font. Also, I thought the linework of the face mask was too fine and would disappear if the logo were shrunk even slightly.
 

Event 4: It's a fine wordmark in a vacuum, but beyond the palette, it doesn't have any apparent relation to the logo.
