Keep an eye out for tomorrow's launch. We're going to have something else football related coming down the pipeline that you artists may be interested in...

They be mad bro'?

Wouldn't surprise me though, which kind of really sucks. I was excited over his performance since the beginning of last season, and was thrilled to see him do so well. He definitely takes some pages out of Ali's books though in making sure the world knew who he was and what he was about. He managed to back up his words too, but of course that means he has to suffer the backlash of those who can't handle a big mouth actually accomplishing what they set out to do.

Still, keeping my hopes up on pro-Sherman entries too. Would definitely GMV, though I understand artists won't want to limit themselves. I'm honestly expecting more generic designs that can appeal to voters no matter who they root for. More of a chance for votes from all across the board that way.

This should give you the basics at least.

Edit: I also recommend movies such as Longest Yard (Original), Any Given Sunday, Friday Night Lights, Rudy, Leatherheads, and Remember the Titans, if you prefer your research in media form

This is true, I got to see the 49ers vs Redskins play there in 1992. Steve Young was the QB instead of Joe Montana, but Jerry Rice was on the field. It was awesome.

That had me looking up the original quote. Funny how it (almost) still applies today XD

Homer: So who do you like in the afternoon game?
Lisa: Well, I like the 49ers because they're pure of heart. Seattle because they got something to prove, and the Raiders because they always cheat.

Think of it roughly like rugby with more padding and stoppage of play, if that helps...

XD It was meant as a compliment/playful jab. I'm very much a Whovian too, and I like the idea! Perfect sort of shirt for any Whovian during football season, especially with the Gallifrey symbol <3

Haha! Good! So many other ideas flying through my brain but my skill level drawing on the computer isn't high enough. Waaa!

SAY! I'd love to see a LOTRs one or Star Trek against Star Wars.

Do you have any advice as to making the letters pop?

If you're looking to keep simple and clean, perhaps a white outline to give it more of a jersey look. Or just see how the letters look in white since white is already incorporated into the design of the helmets. Or maybe simple shading/highlighting, as if a light is being shined onto it.

Dunno really. I've trolled another art site for years, but I'm no artist m'self. I'm sure others will have better suggestions xp

Woot can't print anything with a pop-culture place name on it. Also not -everything- and Doctor Who goes together. ;) I think American Football is one of those situations.

I thought it was just maps of non-existant places created by someone else? It's entire places as a whole? Including Oz and Discworld and Xanth?

Damn, learn something new every day.

the wizard of oz books by l. frank baum are in the public domain. the 1939 film is not.

the "no maps of fictional places created by someone else" was a rule for a specific derby.
