That’s pretty neat! I caved. I made a concept. I just did the red jerseys though, but I looked at all of yours, took what I liked best from them, took what I liked from the current jerseys, and then eliminated the black C. This is what I came up with. Hopefully somebody likes it. By the way I borrowed a template used earlier so if you don’t want me to do that I’ll get rid of it.

Members Share on other sites Link to post Next STL FANATIC Sports Logos Share on other sites 145 142 wheateater Maybe this’ll satisfy wheateater.If I had my choice, the red C would be the only one they use. It looks most like fire, which is the main idea here. But the point is good – the red gets lost because there’s so much red in the body of the jersey itself.So I took the GoNords concept and thickened the black outline around the logo to make it stand out. I also did another version with a thicker white outline around the thicker black outline. I give full credit to tht concept to GoNords, and I did nothing else to alter the concept he posted. I am not trying to hijack this thread; this is just something I was fooling around with to see if a red C could work on a red jersey.Does the red C become more usable this way? If not, I’m fine with the black C.Interesting side question: how many NHL teams switch the colors of the primary logos to suit their jerseys? The only obvious one that comes to mind is Toronto – blue leaf on the road, white leaf at home. U of Florida ’03 (Telecomm) – FAU ’08/’14 (MBA/MHA) Location:Calgary, Alberta Interesting side question: how many NHL teams switch the colors of the primary logos to suit their jerseys? The only obvious one that comes to mind is Toronto – blue leaf on the road, white leaf at home. The Blues also switch colors of the Bluenote. The white jersey has a royal-blue Bluenote while the royal blue-jersey has a navy-blue Bluenote.However, prior to their current set of jerseys, the blues always only had one shade of blue and never switched logo colors. The ‘Note always showed up fine with a yellow and white (and sometimes red in between the two) outline.For that reason I think a red C outlined in yellow black and white would be fine. The only reason it wouldn’t be is not only tradition, but also the fact that our eyes are just used to seeing it stand out more.I do have a couple of old flames concepts I’ll dig up. 0 Share this post eddie010 Posted June 28, 2005 STL FANATIC rmackman Share on other sites Joshawaggie 135 9,570 posts wheateater I think Fat Bastard said it best in his Scottish Accent:I’M DEAD SEXY!!!YOU WERE CRAP!!!

Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo braced for ‘chaos’ when Formula One starts

first_imgRicciardo, waiting out the crisis on his farm near Perth, Western Australia, believes a dramatic season-opener is in prospect at the Red Bull Ring. “Everyone is going to be ready to go,” he said. “You are going to get some guys who perform on that level of adrenaline and others who might not. “So you’re going to get some bold overtakes, some miscalculated ones. COMMENT Press Trust Of India LIVE TV “You’re going to see a bit of everything, I’m sure.” Even though the pandemic means it has been several months since Ricciardo was on a race track, the 30-year-old believes his experience of eight full seasons of Grand Prix racing means he will be in the right physical condition should the 2020 campaign finally get underway.”If this was my first year or two in F1, if I was still not completely adapted to it, my answer would be yes (it would take me time to get used to driving again),” he said.”But winter testing is normally a good reference point. My first few winter testings, day one always felt like a bit of a shock to the system again. And the further my career has gone on, the less of a shock that has been.”The rookies, the first-year, second-year guys, will feel it a little bit more.” Last Updated: 10th May, 2020 07:06 IST Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo Braced For ‘chaos’ When Formula One Starts Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo anticipates “chaos”, “rust” and “adrenaline” should the 2020 Formula One season start at last “(It will be) some form of chaos, hopefully in a controlled manner,” the Renault driver told BBC Radio Five Live.”I am not really referencing cars everywhere.

Orioles, Trumbo agree to three-year, $37.5 million deal

first_imgFor the second offseason in a row, the Orioles will re-sign baseball’s reigning home run champ.Baltimore and slugger Mark Trumbo agreed on a three-year deal that was completed after he passed a physical on Friday. The total contract is worth around $37 million with some money deferred, according to Yahoo’s Jeff Passan.The deal comes just a few days after the one-year anniversary of the Orioles agreeing to a seven-year, $161 million contract with Chris Davis, the 2015 home run champ. Of course, this negotiation involved far less money than last year’s with the Baltimore first baseman, but it played out in a similar fashion with highs and lows in the midst of a lukewarm market that included no other serious bidders for either slugger’s services.Having already been traded three times in a two-year period, Trumbo made it clear near the end of the 2016 season that he hoped to stay in Baltimore where he felt comfortable playing at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and fit in well with the rest of the clubhouse. Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette had recently expressed a preference to receive a compensatory pick for Trumbo’s potential departure, but the sides remained a fit with spring training less than a month away.“We are happy that we were able to bring Mark Trumbo back to the Orioles,” Duquette said in a statement on Friday. “We like his presence in our lineup and professional work ethic along with the elite power he brings to our ballpark.”Acquired from Seattle in exchange for backup catcher Steve Clevenger last offseason, Trumbo had a career year in Baltimore by hitting 47 home runs to go along with a .256 average, 108 runs batted in, and an .850 on-base plus slugging percentage. A sensational first half that included a .288 batting average and 28 home runs in 87 games earned Trumbo his second trip to the All-Star Game, and he accounted for the only Orioles scoring with a two-run shot in the American League wild-card game loss to Toronto.Despite that success and a cheaper-than-expected price, Trumbo’s re-signing does not come without risk after he struggled mightily in the second half with a .214 average and a .284 on-base percentage over his final 292 plate appearances. The right-handed batter also finished with a putrid .173 average and .608 OPS against left-handed pitching in 2016.The 31-year-old was also worth minus-11 defensive runs saved in the outfield, zapping much of his offensive value and bringing his wins above replacement to an ordinary 1.6.Having acquired veteran Seth Smith from the Mariners earlier this month, the Orioles would be wise to play him in right field with Trumbo serving as their designated hitter as much as possible. However, Smith struggles mightily against left-handed pitching, which could open the door for Trumbo to play right field against southpaw starters.With Thursday’s pending agreement, the Orioles are now projected to have a payroll north of $160 million on Opening Day, which would be a franchise record.last_img read more

Twelve Orioles thoughts with 2020 season training resuming

first_imgWith players and coaches returning to Camden Yards this week to resume training for the 2020 season amidst the coronavirus pandemic, I’ve offered a dozen Orioles thoughts, each in 50 words or less:1. Mike Elias said the organization had been “remarkably lucky” not to have any positive COVID-19 tests (as of Monday) while acknowledging the Orioles are “going to have cases.” It’s a realistic assessment and a reminder of just how uncertain this all is from even the most optimistic viewpoints.2. To this point, the Orioles aren’t expecting any players to opt out of the 2020 season, but you wonder if the likes of Ryan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond choosing not to play coupled with additional positive tests this week could change minds. It’s a personal decision that should be respected.3. The inevitable became official Tuesday with the minor leagues canceling their season. The minors are critical to the game’s long-term health in not only developing prospects but also cultivating young fans around the country. I’m concerned with MLB’s inability — or cold refusal — to recognize that.4. The Heston Kjerstad signing is official with the second overall pick from Arkansas receiving a $5.2 million bonus, which was $2.59 million below slot. Of course, no one will remember that if Kjerstad becomes a mainstay in right field and shows the potent left-handed bat the Orioles like so much.5. The organization is telling Kjerstad and other 2020 draft picks to stay ready in hopes of being able to gather for instructional work at some point. Everyone’s in the same boat, but Baltimore losing so much development time in a season so inconsequential at the major league level is tough.6. The first 44 players announced for the Orioles’ 60-man pool list made clear we’ll wait at least a little longer to see Ryan Mountcastle as well as Keegan Akin, Bruce Zimmermann, and Dean Kremer. Especially with Trey Mancini out, there’s no excuse not to give Mountcastle extensive at-bats.7. With the potential statistical noise of a 60-game sprint of a season, Elias was asked how he’d handle the Orioles being a surprise contender at the trade deadline and replied that he’d “look at that very seriously.” Yeah, I’m not buying it either.8. If a roster without its two best position players from 2019 — Mancini and Jonathan Villar — weren’t enough, a daunting schedule now including the entire NL East in addition to the usual AL East nightmares should halt any talk of the Orioles being Cinderella. There are much better sleeper picks.9. In addition to the aforementioned prospects we could see at some point, Austin Hays, Hunter Harvey, John Means, and Anthony Santander provide incentives to watch a club still too short on talent expected to be in Baltimore for the long run. Another Means-like story or two would help.10. Asked about his biggest prospect-related concerns, Elias noted the obvious long-term health of pitchers not accumulating innings and mentioned young hitters missing “key at-bats in their life cycle” as players. How many fringe talents who could have made it will never get a real chance now?11. The labor war is exhausting and the pandemic concerns omnipresent, but I’m otherwise embracing the weirdness of a 60-game season as well as rule changes and quirks. Some of the best innovation comes through unusual circumstances. There’s been nothing traditional about 2020, so why start now?12. Current frustrations with MLB aside, I appreciated the following video and wish the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues could have been celebrated in ballparks around the country. From Rube Foster’s vision to baseball royalty like Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, and Buck O’Neil, these men need to be remembered.last_img read more

Hearts banned for referee assault

first_imgAccra Hearts of Oak have been handed a two match home ban and a measly fine of 3,000 GHC after their fans beat an assistant referee into unconsciousness during a Premier League game.The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association have also ordered the Phobians to pay for the cost of the assistant referees flags which were stolen in the process.But the fact that those who assaulted the referee have got away without any punishment will infuriate those who say violence in football is not being dealt with adequately.The shocking scenes happened after Hearts were held to a 1-1 drawn game at home to Bechem FC on August 9 in a tense neck to neck race with Kumasi Asante Kotoko for the League title.The assistant referee spent the night in hospital and was released after two days.The assault shocked the nation but PLB chairman Welbeck Abrah-Appiah says the punishment for the club had not been severe because they pleaded guilty.
