Firebird Concept AFL

Recommended Posts

This is assuming the Seattle Seahawks would exercise their right to purchase an AFL team.

City location possibilities:

Yakima

Spokane

Wenatchee

C&C welcome.

I am not considering Tacoma or Everett as possible sites, however realistically they could be.

For the cities, you might want to take Everett out (They got the Hawks playing in AF2 this season) replace Spokane (The Shock begin play in AF2 this season as well) with Tacoma.

As for the concept itself, I like it. The 'Firebirds' name has a grand history in the Arena League (Albany/Indiana Firebirds) and Seattle needs an Arena League team (Hell, the region needed one since Portland left). I really dig the flames on the arm area.

I would find a new way to integrate the flames into the uni. The NY Dragons already have the flames on the sleaves.

hhmmm tacoma and yakima are probly the best bets, with the tacoma dome and sun dome and all.

wenatchee just doesnt have the population to hold a team

why not bremerton? maybe if they took the money that may be spend on a NASCAR track and put it into an arena team....probly wishful thinking

the name firebirds wiould be great for yakima, not for tacoma,i'd call tacoma's team like the "timbers" or lumberjax" hey that would be a good concept idea...

but anyways the concept is pretty cool, i like the numbers, but the socks on the home jersey should be red.

Working on Tacoma....

For Tacoma -- I would go with Timberwolves or 'Jacks...

as for the socks, the are to blend with the pant side flame, hence why yellow on the home to match the flames...

Why couldn't this team be in Seattle, why does it have to be in a smaller Washington city?

Anyways, I like this concept. It brings back an old AFL name but with a new modern style and flames which are frickin' awesome.

The Key is the only place in Seattle they could play & if you have been there for T-Bird hockey they have to roll back seats and part the area is not full.

I could actually see them using Everett with an agreement with Sam Adams in partnership.

The Dragon's flames seem much different to me...

I'm diggin'um. LOVE the sholders and the numbers. The helmet just doesn't fit the jersey, maybe an all red helm? If I had one real complaint it would be the socks, and the pant stripes. It just looks to plain to me. All-n-all a good job!

Hobogrish - it's a great concept but as someone mentioned, the fire on the sleeves is very similar the the NY Dragons. For some stupid reason, the Dragons have made the sleeve logo smaller over the years. The picture you showed is more recent, but the original design is very close to your concept.

I like the jersey design but you sohuld add more black and the bird logo to the design. Also the Firebirds sohuld be in Albany! :mad: Maybe they will come back someday. :D
