Yikes not the start I was hoping for but some really good kits this season, really feeling the vibe of the Kings colour scheme and that swastika-looking emblem is pretty rad too.

Here's to a good season :beercheers:

A remarkable field this season, so excited to see how it turns out!
Have a better feeling about the Sixers this year, deciding to push through with the hexagon jumper identity, despite it just barely missing playoffs last season. Having it on my own new template makes it work so much better I think (crazy to think I was using El Scorch's up until last Can-Am?).
May the best jumper win :)

let’s be honest here - anyone voting for Miami over Chicago needs to reassess what their idea of a great footy jumper is.

cool to see the new guard taking over.
Reverse psychology - an interesting tactic ;)

Chicago is a great proper "football design", definitely is here to contend for the championship through it's great incorporation of the Chicago city flag, love it.
The Vice just earnt my vote in this matchup due to it's iconic and vibrant colour scheme with the gradient/shading adding a fresh idea in the mix.
Wish it didn't have to be this way, but for me it was just the colours.

nah legit - Vice has won it twice. fancy has really hit his stride, and the Chicago flag vibe is great.

the Chicago flag vibe is great.
Indeed, it's a real American sports kind of thing for a team to create that sort of connection with the population of the city/state and it's no different with Chicago. I too tried to incorporate the Toronto flag in one of my concepts but just couldn't get it to work in time and settled on featuring it on the logo. It's a bit of an awkward flag anyway, but maybe something for next year.

Last year I named my team after the Kansas City land rush of 1889, but then realised half-way through the season that the Land Rush had actually happened in Oklahoma, not Kansas. So this year I decided to make it the most Oklahoma based team that's still in Kansas, down to the colours and moniker, just because.

Isn't Kansas City in Missouri?

Majority is. Kansas City is on the Kansas-Missouri border. Helps to have 2 states to make a Can-Am 2 team from.

Oh and, congrats on the win.
That is a smart idea!
Thanks! But the game is not over yet - anything is possible in Can-Am ;)
