I plan to enter. I have good skills at Photoshopping jerseys as I used to “mod” the NHL games for PC. I’m just lacking inspiration. I’m new to this area, and I usually like to draw on history, so that’s a dead end source of inspiration. My initial thought was somthing inspired by the Salem Rebels. Thoughts?

That's what everybody else is posting on facebook, but wanting a Roanoke Express throwback.  I wouldn't have a problem with it but personally I think they have a new identity.  I say leave the past in the past.  I'd rather see jerseys made for the team we are now.  If throwbacks were ever made I think it should be on a promotion actually put out by the team and its owners wanting it.  I'm proud to have them bring a new team and identity with the Dawgs.  The Salem and Roanoke Valley Rebels would be opening up another big can of worms.  With half of the fan base probably taking the rebel flag as offensive.  Which was part of the logo way back then, i'm not sure it would be in best interest to waste your time on something that no matter how you do it people will not vote for it.  But thats just my opinion.

Yeah, that came to my mind as well. For that reason, I wasn’t planning to use the leaf logo, I wanted to go with the Rangers-style script reading “Roanoke”, similar to the late 60’s blue jerseys.

 

As far as an Express throwback, although it’d pander to the crowd, that’s not happening from me. That was a terrible logo and color scheme *ducks to avoid flying debris* and I have no desire to resurrect that.

I remember a couple of jerseys that read Rebels in the Rangers style.

Isn’t the game that will feature the jersey be in October? What about a Halloween or fall jersey?

 

 

I love Roanoke hockey history but I’d rather see a unique jersey for the Dawgs rather than a throwback. Save that for a night where the past teams can be celebrated.

October 26th.  That is a pretty good idea to have somewhat of a Halloween theme of the Dawgs like they do for Christmas jerseys.

What can I use to design one

I’d like to see a jersey with the shoulder patch (the star with Roanoke in front) as the primary logo.

I like the design overall. The train track striping is a nice subtle touch. I’m not crazy about the “RYD” on the front but I’m glad you did something other than a diagonal “Roanoke” across the chest. I’m also glad you stayed away from putting “Dawgs” on it. I think a star patch on both shoulders would also look a little better and maybe take the yellow out. As I said, great job! I don’t have the ability to make one but I wish I could!

Oh, an earlier version had the “Dawgs” wordmark cut out from the main logo, but I really didn’t like how it looked, so back to the drawing board.

As far as the star patch on the shoulders: I really considered it. In the end wanted stars as part of the “RYD” design, and didn’t want to overdo it with shoulder stars as well. I do really like that logo and want to see it used more by the team.

To my knowledge, there was no certain date announced.  But the way it sounds there will be more then one jersey announced and then everyone will vote on which one is the best.  Not sure of any dates given that I know of yet.

Yours was easily the best of the bunch. Voted for it. I liked the Yellow one too, but it looked way too Nashville for me. This is perfect. Great striping, great font, great logo on the front.

I voted for the yellow one. I was conflicted about voting for that one or option 5 but I liked how the dawgs logo was incorporated on the shoulders of the yellow jersey. In my opinion, options 2, 5, and 6 are the best ones. I feel like the others missed the mark a bit and really did not capture the team but I appreciate the effort put forth in all the jerseys!

I liked them all.  But had to choose one that put the team name on the jersey.  I really liked option 2 but didn't vote for it because it would look horrendous with our red helmets and gloves.  If i knew we were going back to blue I would have probably voted for it.  My final vote went to option 3.  Kept mostly with our color scheme, implemented the Roanoke Star, and displayed the name so people can clearly see what team it is.
