  1. Happy Birthday YELDARBfield!

  2. It was really nice of Getty Images to let them do that! https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/illustration/tornado-mascot-royalty-free-illustration/165591125?irgwc=1&esource=AFF_GI_IR_VigLink_27795&asid=VigLink&cid=GI
  3. My point is, they bothered to put the "TM" but were too lazy to create an original logo. In my mind, there's a zero percent chance they legally trademarked that logo.
  4. @JMC-STL We can only hope! Otherwise, the branding in this league is becoming just embarrassing...
  5. Just because the jersey was a "mock-up" doesn't mean the logo/jersey designs aren't finalized. It takes considerably longer to make a sewn jersey vs. a sublimated one. Plus, they went to the trouble of typing "TM" before closing the Paint file, so in their mind this logo is THE logo.
  6. Well. This logo was more stolen than I thought. s/t, SportsLogos.net Boards... Both the Utah Blitz of the the Women's Football Alliance and the Swindon Storm flag football team in the UK (which is a thing, I guess) use versions of this logo. So who knows where it originated, but it surely wasn't with this QC team. I bet $10 this logo isn't even really trademarked by QC.
  7. True. Only parts of it are taken from other sources instead of the entire logo. Check the eyes: The name is lazy but okay. Could've been something cringeworthy like IceStormz or Space Ducks. The colors are solid as well, and the mock-up jersey is a winner if given white or blue numbers. That logo, though. Woof. What an objectively bad mark. Way too much detail in some places (stick tape, "STORM" wording). Uneven line work all around. Someone sewed the tornado's hands together before jamming the stick through them. Plus he looks like he's more comfortable riding the stick in a quidditch match. There are about 4 different types of storms depicted in the mark. The tornado is three shades of grey + yellow eyes and no blue, while the cloud and wording is just black and blue. Just an absolute dumpster fire. BUT it's an active hockey club with games to play in 2018/19, so who am I to judge?
  8. The ice is a full-size sheet, 200' by 85'. That 8,400 is including the upper bowl; it's closer to 5,300 with just the lower seating.
  9. Lukas was here for all of 14/15, beginning part of 15/16.
  10. FWIW: These designs will be revealed as the season goes on. IIRC, Military jersey will be released at Family Fest (date TBA).
  11. FWIW, there is zero green involved this season.
  12. Agreed. I've always hated when teams do the contrasting nameplate thing. It only looks good for Philly, and only because it has historical precedent. That UT orange always seems to catch light in strange ways. The first picture @MacGuy posted looks much better and more accurate. The font appears the same as what the Atlanta Thrashers wore, so I wouldn't ascribe any significance to the numbers' shape. Dead right about the busy-ness and stripes. It almost seems like the cut of the jersey (long/low shoulder yoke + shorter/scooped tail) makes it all look more cluttered. The huge white sponsor patch doesn't help things either. The Tri-Star is a nice touch, since they're the state's only SPHL team. Would've preferred a bespoke logo to fit the "Ice Bears" brand instead of a recolor, but at least there's some orange on this jersey other than the numbers. Obvious Preds references are obvious, though I can't say I blame them. IIRC, Knoxville had the 4th highest local ratings during the Stanley Cup Final this year, right behind the two cities playing and Buffalo. Strike while the iron is hot! This jersey set is a perfect example why contrasting nameplates are stupid. The back of the white jersey looks sooooo much cleaner without what's essentially a top stripe. However, those white numbers are a bad move. Should've gone orange on these as well, at least on the back. Plus that fixes the lack of orange.
  13. Sorry, working for makes that a force of habit.
