Once again, it's time for the semi-annual ritual of saying goodbye to all the teams that have folded or relocated out of their old cities and saying hello to all the teams that have formed or relocated into their new cities. Except there's nothing to say, because the lineup of teams in the AHL, ECHL, and SPHL is completely the same as last year.
That doesn't mean that there are no reviews to post, because six teams did change (or at least update) their logos: the Cleveland Monsters of the AHL; the Kansas City Mavericks of the ECHL; and the Evansville Thunderbolts, Huntsville Havoc, Peoria Rivermen, and Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs of the SPHL.
Reviews should start being posted in the next few weeks.
"What's the Bush League Factor?" you may be thinking.
Basically, it's a not-too-serious attempt at quantifying how lousy some of the logos in minor league hockey and baseball are. Certain offenses have been catalogued -- cartoony logos, logos with irrelevant features in them (such as a bear in the logo for a team called the "Aces"), trendy and/or garish colors, and so forth. Each offense has been given a point value, and the scores have been added up.
Some people would say that I need to get a life, and they may be right, but until then I'm going to keep working on this.
Updates should come roughly once a week during the season...maybe more often, maybe less. Keep checking to see what I have to say. With every update one team (sometimes more if I'm feeling ambitious) will be spotlighted. Teams will be done in a seemingly random order (it isn't, but the exact order is left as an exercise to the reader).
Navigation is fairly straightforward. Look at the links on the left and click on the team or department you want to go to.
If you wish to contact me, the best way is through the Facebook page. If you're old school and prefer e-mail, my username is daniel and my domain is the same as that for this page. I avoid putting the two together because I get more than enough spam as it is. Be warned that I often go months without checking the e-mail for this site, whereas I'm on Facebook fairly often. Comments are welcome and encouraged. Particularly witty comments may get put on the website. Particularly stupid ones may as well. Sending me a message or e-mail regarding the Bush League Factor constitutes acceptance of these terms (which is a fancy way of saying, "No, you can't sue me for putting your comment on the webpage!").
