Absolute last chance, would really like 1 more team to make it an easy conference split without teams having to have byes.

Cadaver?
No chance of getting anything done tonight mate, only AFL game in Darwin all year and then UCL final in the morning.

The design guidelines are the same as for 2018 (with the exception that the Home is now called Legacy, away is now Pride, and Can-Am 2 is Attain) but as a reminder here they are.

OFFICIAL UNIFORM GUIDE
  • All guernseys MUST be Adidas branded and feature the Adidas 3 stripes somewhere on the Guernsey (position is up to the designer and may change across all three designs). The Adidas logo may also be positioned wherever the designer chooses so long as it appears on the guernsey and is clearly visible (can also be included on a jock tag or inside the collar, but only in addition to the main logo). Adidas logo must also feature on the shorts (right side facing).
  • All designs (Legacy, Pride, Attain) must be on the same template.
  • Legacy Guernseys must be at least 51% white.
  • Legacy Shorts may be any colour.*
  • Legacy Socks must be at least 33% white.
  • Pride Guernseys must be at least 51% coloured.
  • Pride Shorts may be any colour, including being the same as the Legacy.*
  • Pride Socks must be at least 33% coloured, cannot be the same as the Legacy
  • Attain Guernsey may be anything, outlandish designs are encouraged.
  • Attain Shorts may be any colour, should not be the same design as Legacy and/or Pride.*
  • Attain Socks may be any colour, should not be the same design as Legacy or Pride.

*Shorts may be the same design across the two designs (Legacy and Pride) if the designer chooses to do so.
  • Sponsor to appear in usual AFL front position (right side facing)
  • Player name to appear below the number on the back (usual sponsor position)
  • Numbers on the back must feature number logo (found here).
  • Numbers must appear on the front of the guernsey, same font as back, cannot be more than 50% the size of the back, number colour does not need to match the back.
  • Number must appear on the shorts (left side facing), same font as back of the guernsey, size no larger than 50% of the back number, colour does not need to match back number.
  • Conference logo must appear above number on the back (cannot be recoloured)
  • Champions logo (found here) must appear on Seattle, New York and Miami* kits only (Not on Attain kit). (*Even though Miami has won 2 titles they will still wear just 1 star when they resume in the competition).
  • Team logos are now required for Can-Am team as a separate image, Can-Am 2 teams logo must appear on kit presentation image.
NO DESIGNS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR SUBMISSION UNTIL A NOTIFICATION IS MADE, however I will now allow people to ask if a design is ok and meets guidelines. However do not expect an immediate response. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible but this may not always be possible.

A reminder about the Can-Am 2:

This is like the minor leagues in Canadian and American sports. This season all franchises will be required to submit a Legacy (still predominantly white) kit, an Pride (coloured) kit, and a developmental team kit (Attain) as well as logos for both teams (main franchise as a separate image, developmental within the kits image).

Into season 2 of this competition I am still going to restrict Can-Am 2 teams locations to close to their main franchises locations (so within the franchises city limits or near the city if there are other franchises located nearby, or within the franchises state or province if the franchise has no other franchises within the same state/province) as to not have people overlap as no-one will need to publicly announce where their second team will be located. Franchises can use another locations name (be it city, suburb or state/province depending on what other franchises are nearby) or take the route or some MLS teams in forming a second team with a 2 at the end (e.g. Portland Timbers, LA Galaxy, Seattle Sounders who have a 2 or II team).

So using the Winnipeg True North as an example, they could have a Winnipeg True North 2/II or a Manitoba (team name), whereas the San Francisco Kings couldn't use California if there was a team in Los Angeles. However if 2 teams are located in the same state/province they can negotiate a way to work around this issue, e.g. San Francisco could use Golden State and LA could use California or SoCal.

The Can-Am 2 team will still use their main franchises conference logo on their kits and the design can be anything (light or dark kit) so long as it still features the Adidas 3 stripes and is on the same template as the other 2 designs.

Wild GOAT:
Editor: McLovin - 6/8/19

Aaron 'The GOAT' Rodgers has been spotted reppin a Wisconsin Wild cap after his meeting with GM Ned Schneebly. It's believed Rodgers has become a major investor in the team after last years successful run into the playoffs. What's more interesting however is the cap itself, does it hint at a possible rebranding of the club? Is this a new era in Wisconsin?

I’ve heard rumours there’s an alternate cap with a big L on it for games down the road in Chicago, can you confirm?

you'd really want a man involved with your franchise who can't scull (skol?) a beer?

jeez.

Heading out of the Scotiabank Arena after Game 5, Drake was seen wearing a hat bearing a logo of an unknown sporting team, definitely not a Raptors logo...

Looks like a 6? or an S? Could be a new logo for the Toronto Sixers for this years' Can-Am? Huge if true.

Remember design are due by the end of the day Saturday.

If anything is wrong with your design (e.g. does not meet the guidelines) and you do not have time to fix it before the deadline, then it will count as a late submission.
