Re: AltLB Design Thread

It is time for the Group C Name Reveal. Thank you all for being patient I am on the road for work this week and its tough to sneak away to post. I don't have my AHS laptop so this post will have to go without graphics. 

Group C 1970s

Many of the names that won here were popular runners up in the past. So I wanted to give some of the people who previously nominated these names originally a shout out. Unfortunately however, only the people who nominated the names this time will get the points.

4 out of 6 wins, I’m doing pretty good at this! (Which is good because I have absolutely no graphic design skills whatsoever)

This is not looking good for me, once so ever.

Re: AltLB Design Thread

We've definitely come up with up with quite the unique set of team names for this league!   Gemini definitely feels like an alternate universe name if the Minnesota Twins hadn't gotten that specific name, (really dig it).   Oakland Squirrels is probably my favorite choice so far (beating out my selected teams name even), it just feels like a baseball team's name to me.  

Can't wait to see how the next set of names work out!  (Really excited about this round, I think I've got some good ones this time!)

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Can't say I'm really a fan of Samurai or Gemini. Gemini feels really awkward and just kinda plays off the Twins, while the Samurai most likely would not be a name considered acceptable in the 70s. Anti-Japanese sentiment was still high and I don't think naming an "America's Game" team after Japan would fly.

Either way, excited to see the brands because we do well with brands. I'm hoping I can get a few more names in the next three rounds!

Re: AltLB Design Thread

Hey everybody, 

The next stage for the 1980s is coming. I am away this weekend so you'll get the ranking the 1980s poll on Sunday night. That's just the most time consuming stage but it is on its way. 

But since i want to give you guys something to do in the mean time I am opening up the 1990s for name nominations.
