The winner of the Stadium Series Competition was Scott G!

Well done Scott! Although Scott won by 9 points, the voting was spread out pretty well. There was no clear cut winner during the whole week. This is a sign that there were a lot of very good entries. Keep it up everyone and always try to be better with every concept.

------------------------------------------------

I did not prepare a competition this week. A couple of months ago I got a really great promotion at work which takes away even more of my time. Now I have very limited time to devote to the blog. Which will require bringing on an assistant in the future (be ready in the summer).

Anyways, this is your chance to influence the next competition. You lay it out for me. Tell me what we should do next. My mind is blank so lets hear your ideas. Be as simple or as specific as you would like. I may use one idea or I may use a combination of many ideas. This is a great opportunity to do something fun.

How mad would everyone be if the Leafs continued to lose like they are, win the Draft Lottery, and Connor McDavid becomes a Leaf? Discuss...and vote...

"Galactic Cup" Star Wars competition.

Ryan G said...

A WWE competition, pick a wrestler and make a set for him (or her) or a AHL re-design.

Christian Legault said...

Pairs competition Like last year? I missed out on the fun! We could have two divisions (1 being novice )
But this time it could be a bit more restricted. We all pitch in ideas for cities, and team names and then they'll be "random" via a website like random.org

Video/Mobile game competition. Such as Angry birds or candy crush

Alan John Herbert said...

Reebok Cookie Cutter Combo Contest (put 2 Reebok cookie cutter templates together)

@Ryan G: I like that idea, and with Wrestlemania around the corner it makes sense!

Ted said...

"Classic Expansion" contest. In the original days, it wasn't uncommon for some cities to have second and even third teams (Montreal Maroons and Wanderers for example). So take that idea snd run with it. What would the new expansion Chicago franchise look like? Boston? St. Louis? Los Angeles?

I remember J3's submission into the last HJC Open and David Parkinson's Battle of the Brands series and I feel this would be an interesting time to do a competition around that criteria considering how well they were received.

Concerning the video game idea, I don't feel that that sort of competition would include everyone since not everyone knows or even like video games and I feel like the jerseys would be too gimmicky.

I wouldn't mind having another pairs competition like Christian suggested.

And the with the WWE, I feel like it's the same issue with video games but worse.

William Butala said...

I think you're missing a "concept" for the COTW vote ;)

I really like video game and/or WWE themed competitions. A BCHL or KIJHL competition would be cool from a personal level.

Roller Hockey jersey competition. Every NHL team is going to start a roller hockey youth program. As you can see with a quick google search, roller hockey has a style completely different than ice hockey. Lets see something different than the usual here.

To further my last comment, here is the San Jose Inline Sharks jerseys for this year.

I think it's time for another pairs competition, this time I think it should be either:

A: AHL to NHL upgrade
B: Complete rebrand of an NHL team

SportsUniformConcepts said...

I have a few ideas:

- Another Video Game competition
- NCAA Competition
- XFL Competition
- Battle of the Brands
- Defunct Team competition

Scott Garland said...

Yay me! Thanks to everyone who voted.

-NHL or AHL complete re-design.

-NHL new 3rd jersey for any team.

-Hometown hockey team
(either an existing team from your hometown; AHL, NHL, Juniors, etc. or make one up.)

Scott Garland said...

Some people might also find this an interesting read, and... concept?

How about a crossover contest, from other sports.

Phil B. said...

I like Zach's crossover idea. I am currently working on a Premier League crossover series so stay tuned for that. I wouldn't mind saving the best of those for the competition.
