UPDATE: I reworked the mane and altered the dimensions on the trotters primary. How do you feel about the new secondary?

All of the changes were for the better they all look good. I look forward to the rest of the teams.

Wow! That primary looks a lot better with another stroke there on the mane. I also feel kinda stupid for not noticing that that's an 'I' for Indianapolis in the 'T'.

I can get these done a lot faster it seems only doing the logos. Big fan of that. Here the next team the Topeka Twisters. Topeka had an F5 tornado storm through in 1966 that did more damage than any other such storm to a capital city. This team is named after that very destructive force. The green and yellow are the colors of the city flag. Hope you enjoy!

Wow. Flawless, just flawless.The colors are very unique. My only complaint would be that some people don't like to name thing like sports teams after bad events. I mean, I'm sure that a team called the Boston Bombers wouldn't get too much love. This isn't really an issue though, because I know that there are a lot of teams, say located in Tornado Alley that are called something to do with that. I have no problem whatsoever with the name, or the entire set for that matter. This set would challenge for my favourite team/set in this series. Will Pittsburgh be next?

I thought about that, and actually did some research for a different team name. Then i thought about the Carolina Hurricanes, they see those storms all the time. And after Katrina and Sandy they haven't changed so I went with it. And yes Pittsburg is next. Next meaning now. This one hits the history books abit. The set is inspired by the Allegheny Arsenal, do a google search on it if you're not familiar, and the Pittsburgh flag. The Primary has the checkerboard and stripes of the flag and the front of the depot. and the symbols on the crest. The secondary used the cannons from the crest and the shape of the badges worn by arsenal personnel. And its all tied together with Pittsburgh black and yellow. Hope you enjoy the Pittsburgh Arsenal!

Pretty cool fits into the whole city of Pittsburgh sport scheme. Only thing I'm curious about is, whats the black rectangle above the pa on secondary for looks a little off.

Pittsburgh, definitely different from what you've been doing, but still very old-school and classy, and I really like it. 2 sets after you stop making jerseys, you come up with one that is absolutely perfect for jerseys! It would have the cannons crossed with the cannonballs on the front, and you you would have checkerboard stripes all around. I agree with HighNoon, the use of the Pittsburgh color scheme was a nice touch. Any plan on who will be next, or will you keep it a surprise? As always, very nice.

From what I can tell, you don't have a team from the Pacific division (San Jose, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas)... but I might be mistaken. Also, just a quick question, since you moved the Archers from Milwaukee to Minnesota, does that mean you'll make another Milwaukee team?

EDIT: Well, you have 2 teams from the Rocky Mountain Division, so maybe I just put the divisions down wrong? Is Arizona in the Pacific instead of Las Vegas or something like that?

Big News! I blame kevsim for making me think about the divisions and such. Then I had a thought: I want a team in all 50 states. So my plans have expanded to 64 teams. Its a bit ambitious but I figure since I'm m own boss for this and there's no deadlines, what the heck. So now there will be 4 divisions in each of the 4 conferences, with 4 teams each. Heres the new line-up:

Western Conference:

Northwest Division: Anchorage, Vancouver Seawolves, Seattle, Portland

Rocky Mountain Division: Boise Noise, Billings, Casper, Denver

Pacific Division: San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, Honolulu

Southwest Division: Phoenix Vipers, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Albuquerque

Northern Confernce:

Maple Leaf Division: Montreal, Winnipeg, Toronto Skyliners, Edmonton

Great Plains Division: Sioux Falls, Fargo, Omaha, Topeka Twisters

Midwest Division: Minnesota Archers, Milwaukee, Des Moines, St. Louis

Great Lakes Division: Cleveland, Indianapolis Trotters, Chicago, Detroit

Eastern Conference:

Atlantic North Division: Brooklyn Blackout, Burlington (Vermont), Manchester (New Hampshire), Orono (Maine)

New England Division: New York City, Boston, Hartford(CT), Providence (RI)

Colonial Division: Philadelphia, Washington DC, Newark(DE), Newark(NJ)

Appalachian Division: Pittsburgh Arsenal, Baltimore, Wheeling (West Virginia) Richmond (VA)

Southern Conference:

Heartland Division: San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Oklahoma City

Tennessee Valley Division: Louisville, Memphis Rhythm, Nashville, Little Rock

Gulf Coast Division: New Orleans Harlequins, Biloxi, Montgomery, Tampa

Atlantic South Division: Charlotte Firebirds, Greenville (SC), Atlanta, Miami

Out: Sacramento, Columbus, Orlando

The Blue is teams that are completed. The Green are the nineteen new cities. This forced me to eliminate three cities in states with multiples to get it to an even 64. The red will be the next 4 I will do in order to have each division represented. I'll be making a few minor update to the ones done as well. Mainly just adjusting the conference and divisional marking in the lower right corner, but I'll be changing the Carolina Firebirds to the Charlotte Firebirds (It will only change the word-mark.) Hope you enjoy these changes. I think it will be fun.

This is going to be pretty good. Only question about teams in the Colonial Division, how are you going to do the two Newwarks unless you use the state name.

One or both will be state names, as will be the case with a few different teams.

Also, updated Charlotte and all the division/conference stuff. Will begin work on San Jose soon.
