HI

 

I don't know what you're trying to do with these comments here, @TheLogoFather72, but these posts are very unconstructive and add nothing to the thread. I will point you in the direction of the Concepts Forum Guidelines, which state in part:

 

Quote

Constructive criticism must be used when commenting on concepts, be it positive or negative.

  • Any replies to concepts that simply state something to the effect of "OMG, this sux!" or "AWESOME!!!11!" that the moderator team encounters will be removed.

Just an FYI,  I just announced over on the story (alt sports history) website that the AAFL has signed a deal that will have NIKE work with SME Branding to design uniforms and, in some cases, new branding, for the entire AAFL, beginning with the 1991 season.  Expect about 2-4 teams per year to get new uniforms, and some will have new logos too.  First up (if I follow my plan):  Colorado, Washington and Dallas.   

 

Expect the 1996 Broncos "innovation" to hit the AAFL a few years earlier, because they are deliberately pushing to differentiate themselves from the style of the NFL at the time.

Also, I have a request for an expansion team in Cincinnati at Nippert Stadium on the campus of the university of Cincinnati, one of the oldest schools the FBS.

OK, I am getting a little ahead of myself, since I have not finished the 1990 season on the alt-history page, but I am hoping to get some feedback.  Here is the updated 1991 Nike uniform and new logo for the Colorado Rangers.  Thoughts?  Too  modern?  The sleeves are based loosely on the NY Jets, so certainly not "new".  The font is the 1997 Broncos font, but I am working from the premise that the AAFL is asking Nike and SME to innovate, so some late-90's items might get introduced a bit earlier. 

 

New logo first (remember that "Rangers" is a reference to the Front Range mountains, as well as the idea of National parks. so I added mountains to the "shield" of the park rangers.

And the Uniforms.

No one cares. As mentioned before, keep your comments constructive and focused on the artwork in the thread.

2nd of 3 Nike Revisions of AAFL teams:  Washington Warriors

 

1. Logo-- Slight Update (back to my original idea)-- Change shield to white & blue (less solid) and addition of the 3 stars form DC flag above the shield.

2. Uniform:  Went with jersey side stripes aligning with pantstripe as the "new, edgy" element Nike brings to the uniform.  The 3 stars act as a 2ndary logo, on sleeves and in pant stripes.  Note that the team has only white pants, but two different sets, to align with the jersey stripes.

I love the overall look of this. On the shield, the center stripe doesn't really work because it's mostly obscured and it just looks like a large blog of blue on the right, and a tiny blip of blue on the left.  I'd try ether making the C small enough to where the fact that it's a stripe is clearly visible, or just fill in the white space on the bottom so that it looks like the whole bottom half of the shield is supposed to be blue.

And the last of the 3 NIKE overhauls of AAFL Squads.  Dallas get's their new Bull logo and the uniforms get a definite Bronco vibe to them, 5 years ahead of the NFL.

Still think that logo is a bit modern, seems 2005 and up, the uniforms look good though, Colorado looks great!

I kinda agree with Diet Dr Pepper here. These types of logos at that day and age were supposed to be embarrassing not clean.
