Now that I have that out of my system, I want to talk about a team that I have this strange attraction to there logo and jersey set from the Federal Hockey League. The team is the Dayton Demolition who play out at the Hara Arena in Dayton, OH.

Anyways, we have the usual COTW, which I know everybody will go to the right of the screen and vote before moving on, and the Tuscon competition voting as well. However, the voting will be due on Friday by NOON eastern time. This is the new standard for most of the voting now. I understand if you don't like it but hey, change is inevitable.
COTW May 8-12 vote (ends Friday @ 12pm Eastern)
Falcons to Tucson Top 5 vote (ends Friday @ 12pm Eastern)
Onto the concepts!
Ben Shaffer- Ohio State Buckeyes
Negatives: The back numbers could be a little bigger and it would be nice to have a nameplate on the back so it doesn't make the numbers and name have this awkward looking space between them. Also, I understand that you may have something against OSU, but please don't put "CHEATERS" on the back. Make it look Professional and put a generic name on the back.
Ben Shaffer- Wisconsin Badgers
Negatives: It looks like your home and away reds are different colors. The good thing about all universities and colleges is that they have their guidelines of color and logo use on their websites that give your the exact color that the university uses for it's athletic department. I found that very helpful when I did my Michigan and Denver Jerseys. Also, the no nameplate thing makes the spacing between the numbers and look strange. that or move the numbers up a bit.
Brooks Freeman- Ottawa 67's
Negatives: Why did you get rid of the "'s" in the 67's should logo? It doesn't look bad but it's not really cohesive.
Overall: 9/10 COTW NOMINEE
Hayden Duench- Charlotte Checkers
Negatives: the crest logo is way too big for this jersey. Also, the back numbers are a little big as well, and perhaps you could take the hem stripping and move it up a bit. You can barely see the white in front.
Jordon Roberts- Calgary Flames
Negatives: The hem stripes look like one side is higher than the other. I'm ok with it but I would make sure that you have and even look when it comes to the curved hem. Also, what will the Oilers do for their Heritage jersey due to them being in Alberta as well? And finally, the numbering is to modern for the classic style. You can have a modern style serif font that will work, but this current font only works for the two alts.
Lucas Daitchman- Montreal Royals
Negatives: That logo is just not working well here. From what I've seen from other hockey sweater designs of the early 20th century, usually when a Canadian team would use a crown or something to symbolize their relationship to the queen, they would have a logo that would look much grander than this. I'm no expert on this though but just make the logo look a little cleaner, maybe make the crown slightly smaller.
Lucas Daitchman- Ottawa Senators
Negatives: Since only the black and white are visible, I would suggest making the accent red stripes a little thicker to add some color to the jersey.
Tyler Meli-Skewis- Winnipeg Jets
Positives: The idea of a red alternate jersey is very interesting. I've never seen the Jets, whether it be the former or current, use a red jersey. The white Yoke is also an interesting idea.
Negatives: Those blue stripes need to be wider, you can barely see them and it doesn't balance out all that white and red. Also, move the crest logo up a bit.
That's all I got for you folks today. Before you leave, don't forget to vote for the COTW and for the Falcons to Tuscon Entries. I hope everybody has a good week and I'll see you all next week. They're all yours Phil.
