Wow, that's very detailed. Thank you for sharing! Can I ask, how do you determine the team's strengths on each side of the ball? Is that based on 2012 stats?

 

Well, I don't use the 2012 stats for anything GSL related. Team strengths are random. You may notice that strengths range from 1 to 6, so that's as simple as rolling a die to get each offensive and defensive strength. With the GSL, for parity, I intend to give each team completely new strengths at the beginning of each year, instead of basing strengths off the previous season, which would be an easy thing to do.

 

Changes I've though about, would be having variable team strengths throughout the year. For instance, before each week, there could be a 5% chance that a teams offensive or defensive strength could change. This could reflect injuries on a team, or other teams figuring out an offensive game plan, for a lowering ranking, or, on the flip side, the offense or defense could just start clicking, or trades could be beneficial, or rookies start making an impact. Things like that. I would like to find a way to incorporate this somehow, because it is more realistic. As a Steelers fan, I've seen the Steelers defense decimated by injuries (using safeties as inside linebackers), and an offense that everyone has figured out. A better simulation would have to account for things like that.

The 2021 season is approaching, and with the number of teams, I will be splitting the league into two conferences, Eastern and Western.

I've also created playoff logos as well.

A couple of new league logos for the 2021 season.

 

First, the 2021 Gridiron Bowl (formally Gridiron Bowl I).

This logo was created for the league by @logoroy

And the week before the Gridiron Bowl, will be the GSL All-Star game, also in New Orleans. This logo, I created, following the same color scheme as the Gridiron Bowl log (which is intended for each All-Star game logo moving forward).

I appreciate it. A lot of work has gone into the GSL so far, from the owners, and myself (much coding work had to be done, that's for sure).

As far as Super Bowl logos go, really, @logoroy's work has been exceptional over the years. His Super Bowl XLIX concept is actually what got me to join the forums here initially, and butterfly effect, I wouldn't have joined the Gridiron Uniforms Database if I didn't start with field concepts here, and without the GUD, there'd be no GSL. But @logoroy's concepts for having good Super Bowl logos is why I asked him to design the Gridiron Bowl logos. If you haven't seen his past concepts, they are definitely worth taking a look at.

I definitely will. Thanks!

The GSL owners had a competition to create a logo for a "Playoff Bowl" (a game between the Conference Runner Ups, as was done in the NFL many years ago).

League owners are voting now for the winning logo, but I figured I'd show off some of the work that was submitted:

The GSL had another logo competition, this time for the GSL Memorial Day Classic (FYI, we do logo competitions periodically, which are open to anyone to submit).

League owners are voting now for the winning logo, but I figured I'd show off some of the work that was submitted:

This next entry was mine, but since I won the previous logo competition, I made myself ineligible to win this one

Rob Holecko, who has been a key member of the GUD team since the beginning, has resurrected the UWFFL, to run alongside the GSL, in the fall, wile the GSL runs in the spring.

The original UWFFL ran on UniWatch: https://uni-watch.com/2013/06/01/wrapping-up-the-uwffl-franchise-contest/

With later iterations moving to a blog: http://uwffl.blogspot.com/

And now, on it's own site: https://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/UWFFL/weekly/2015_Champions/final.shtml and forum: https://gridironuniforms.forumotion.com/f10-uwffl

 

Any information about what's going on in the UWFFL is found on the forum, but for some background to the concepts to come, there are multiple leagues that form the UWFFL (think of European soccer). Individuals can own a team in each league, so, I'll go through the teams I own in each league.

 

First, the Calgary Alpines of the Pacific Coast Conference, originally owned by Curtis Peddle (still a part of the UWFFL, and GSL, but due to the number of teams he's owned, he's had to pass some off). I updated slightly Curtis' original uniform designs, and upscaled the logos, based on the tiny versions from the original uniform designs.

The next team comes from the Metro South Conference, the Charleston Navigators. As for all the UWFFL teams I'll post, this is another team I took over ownership of, as most teams are abandoned, or were owned by Curtis.

I made more drastic changes to the original designs of this team, as they were a bit dated from the last time the UWFFL was active.

Tried to get a classic Seahawks vibe with this team, based on the Navigators original team colors.

 

And sorry about the size of the image here, this forum's algorithm for resizing images limits width and height to preset dimensions, but clicking on the image will bring it to full size.

This next team has a bit more backstory and history to it, before it was a UWFFL team that I took over.

 

The original logo design and helmet design was created by Ryan Connelly, and was part of a featured article on UniWatch

https://uni-watch.com/2013/05/03/uni-watch-diy-project-building-a-better-helmet/

 

A full uniform set was eventually made, as the Express were more fleshed out to become a part of the UWFFL. As I took this team over, I made the striping match the logo, and leaned on more on the black and gold of the team, which, is big in Pittsburgh spots (and as you can see, has heavy Steelers influences, as did the original helmet project design by Ryan).

I am liking this "new" league. The Grinders helmet is awesome, reminds me of the Iowa Barnstormers. The Express are cool as well. The logo reminds me of the Steelers prison jerseys, which I like.

I’d love to know the origin behind the name Grinders. The uniforms and logo package is probably one of the bests out of all of the ones you’ve showcased. There’s really good color balance on the uniforms, and the helmet logo and striping are all great. 

I’m not sure what a Grinder is though and how it relates to Cincinnati?

Well, I'll have to ask Curtis. He is still very active in the UWFFL (owns the Toronto Terror in the GSL), and made so many teams for the UWFFL. I'm not sure what the method was behind the names and colors and designs and such, but he's got a lot of good ones.
