KSG at Special-K Stadium

Remember that Aussie Rules c]design team of mine? Well I'm trying to slightly up my pre-season game. This idea came from another participant in the competition so I decided to disclose with the competition our plans for "redevelopment" along with ticket packages.



Of course, a sponsorship deal had to be put in place for promotional purposes. And, the first home game had to have a schedule photo magnet giveaway. The latter, I know I am the first in the seven year history of the reserves or the primary levels of the competition.

It's Finally Here...!

After realizing that I never put up my finished Aussie rules jumper template looking back at the VRFC post from last month, I am bringing it to you now. It will be complete with side panel and a long-sleeved option for those who wish.


Some day, I may add different types of collars to this, but I've always been a V-neck guy so that was the base model. This is technically the third version of the template, but only the first officially published. Feel free to use it for your ideas.

Raising the Seal-ing

The National Lacrosse League has a new man aboard to expand the sport. Joey Tsai of Alibaba fame is bringing lacrosse to San Diego. But it wasn't until the last several days that the brand was unveiled. I give you the Seals (Well my version of them anyway).



I was trying to go off of what Projoy has done in the past. I also added new things to make this seem somewhat unique to the team. This wasn't terribly challenging, though I felt that I could have done more if a good version of the alternate logo surfaced. In any event, I managed fine.

Return of the Convocation

As I saw fit, I made various arrangements for a Aussie Rules design league I'm competing in. If you remember the Victoria River Eagles, that is the focus. I needed a new set of jumpers for the new season. I have kept two from the previous season (2014/15). The new home was the former clash and now featuring new numbers while the old home is now the heritage kit with the club song added to the front. New Jumpers have been added to meet requirements.





The names of each jumper are indicative of relevant words or phrases from the local indigenous  language of the Northern Territory. I decided to redo the branding sheet so that it was more in line with the other work.

Havin' a Time, Where the Brier Is the B'y!

The BNG MSP is certainly not lacking quality content as today we revisit several items from my visit to St. John's in March for the Tim Hortons Brier. Included are two local newspapers with an edition of the Curling News plus a few Tankard Times (one signed by Mike McEwen's Team Manitoba), a signed team Manitoba photo, a photo of an Albertan representation) a Brier media guide an airline ticket to St John's from Pearson International (YYZ), a poster of Brad Gushue (winning skip from host Newfoundland and Labrador, and tickets from earlier draws of the tournament.


Finally the winning province got their glory after being among Canada's best men's sides for years. The Party went into the wee hours of the morning on George Street where Gushue had promised to bring the Brier Tankard if they'd won. From George Street to the freak windstorm on the day before, it was certainly an event they'll talk about forever in the Great White North.

Great Scotties, That was Brilliant!

Some may recall my adventures a quick trip across the border to Canada  in February of this year. I grabbed some things from the Scotties in St. Catharine's for the BNG MPS. The Museum of Play and Sport has other items in it, but I'm featuring these today.


While I did attend a draw earlier in the week, everything in the museum is from the fantastic gold medal game between Michelle Englot's Manitoba and champions Ontario represented by Rachel Homan. I have the day after's local paper in addition to various versions of the daily Scottie publication and signed clapper placards (if that's what they're called) from various Manitoba and Ontario players with a ticket from the gold medal game and official team pictures from both sides respectively signed. I'm already having withdrawal and wish we could get the same venue and excitement every year!

Bisons in a Winter Classic

At the request of a manager at one of my places of employment, I created a set of what that would be. One of which could also be used at the 2018 Winter Classic. I subsequently entered it for the 2017 HJC Open tournament round robin stage.


Also, I have been working on those new Adidas templates, and it will prominently feature the most appropriate team, Vegas, for my first time use. But this set before that and the results of the HJC Ope precede.

Tonight's the Night, Tomorrow's the Day

As has been highly anticipated, the NHL and Adidas will fully reveal the brand new uniforms for each of the thirty-one teams while the Expansion Draft will be officially finalized by tomorrow. while I intend to absorb the most up to date Adidas template in full. I put together my Vegas Golden Knights as per the rules of the expansion draft. Courtesy of our friends at Cap Friendly, you can do so too if you wanted - the hard work is done for you and you can go ahead and choose your players. You can view my compilation below.


I tried to find value buys mixed in with veterans and salary cap eaters. As it worked out, the team would have just over eight million dollars to work with for post-entry draft trades and free-agent pickups, pending potential trades of players picked up in said expansion draft. There was special consideration to balance primary atatcking positions at five per (six at left wing) with two more attackers and defensemen than the requirement. But the entry draft in and of itself could turn this team upside down in just a matter of days unlike the results of past expansion drafts. Only the short time left will tell.

Another MBD Alt Look

Welcome back to BNG as the final installment of the Mount Buller series has arrived. I present the "Bloody Mary/Murder" jumper. Another plain set, but going on the Demons name seemed to be under thought of by the clubs previous designers. If you look closely enough at what I did to alter the logo from the original, there is red where there would have normally be blue (black). However, to drive home the point of the logo selection, I filled those negative spaces into blood and voila.


Then again, It would be ironic if the Blood Rule would come into effect. If a player is bleeding injured without visible traces other than the red part of the jumper before it becomes oxygenated substantially, would the blood rule be able to be called?  It would be an interesting scenario if it ever presented itself. I hope you have found intrigue in the new footy/basketball template if anything at all. This series was merely out of a request that turned into possibility.

The Other MBD Alt Look

I would discuss the actual alternate, however we defined in the primary of the series it is merely a heritage Melbourne jumper. And with that,we have another variant of the accustomed wide v but with another hockey inspired alternate - this from the Calgary Flames horse head jersey.


Again, rather plain and traditional from the jumper itself without the logo and sponsors, but it also was up for introduction. I knew it would not have the same effect as that of a hockey sweater but wanted to give it a go anyway. Meanwhile, one more tomorrow to round up.
