The National Basketball Association (NBA) had its first Nickname Game last night (Fri Jan 10 2014) between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets. It is a great marketing tool, with controversy in fan reaction and no clear future for direction. I thought I’d suggest options for a policy that might be used for nickname jerseys, not just in the NBA but also in other professional sports leagues.
Below is a gallery of the new Nike NFL uniforms. Have a look and take the poll to tell people if you like them. You can also comment. Tell me what you think, and I’ll tell you what I think… if you care for what I think. 🙂
This gallery is easier to view than the NFL site’s gallery because there are no frequent advertisements interrupting your viewing here, and the thumbnails are labeled and in order! Seriously, NFL.com, you can do much better than that!
Are there NFL fans on Facebook? You betcha there are!
Would those NFL fans use their team logo banner as the Timeline profile cover photos? We’ll see, I guess.
Below are over 200 NFL team logo Facebook Timeline profile cover photo graphics covering every existing team. Hope I’ve got one you like for your team! Logos are listed in alphabetical order of team city (Arizona first, Washington last). I made these from my large collection of NFL team logo wallpapers customized for varying monitor sizes.
Congratulations to Dirk Nowitzki and the entire Dallas Mavericks organization in winning the 2011 NBA Championship!
By winning against the self-touted Big Three of Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, the Mavericks made a lot, if not most, of America and the world as happy as they are! For what you think of those players on the Heat and their moves to unite, make the “Decision” and all, the self-annointment was absolutely unnecessary. As far as I’m concerned, they got what they deserved for it. It was too bad D Wade had to be a part of it all and be drawn into it cause he’s such a classy guy otherwise.
Of all the NFL team logos, I would probably vote the Dolphins’ logo as being the cutest. I’m not sure “cute” is the reputation a football team wants to project, but they don’t have a tough fish version like that of the Vancouver Canucks, for example.
The Dolphins’ uniform isn’t far behind with the laid back teal and orange, which I love in the mostly white version. However, it’s anything but “tough”. Of course, “tough” is how you play, not in how you look, as the Dolphins’ defense has proven in recent years, but not looking tough doesn’t do you too much good in the macho world of football.
Anyhow, below are some Miami Dolphins iPad wallpapers properly sized at 1024 x 1024 pixels. I only make wallpapers with team logos because players change too often these days.
There are many types of iPad wallpapers here.
- Unique one-offs with full backgrounds.
- Plain logo on a plain team colour background.
- Embossed logo for those who like a little eye candy, labeled with “emboss”.
- Small logo are for those who like a lot of plain space for their “padtop” icons.
- Small embossed logo that look like a button, labeled with “button”.
- Textured backgrounds like canvas, burlap, sandstone and steel, which you have to see full size to appreciate the difference as the thumbnails don’t do them justice.
I try to design these wallpapers for a variety of tastes and usages. I hope you’ll be able to find one you like.
