Contest title: Fantasy Football League Logo/Crest Design Contest
Sub title: We fantasy football nerds are requesting that you graphic design nerds assist us...
Category: Logo Design
Brand Name: Maur Hill Fantasy Football League (MHFFL)
Summary:

This contest is to design a logo or crest for the Maur Hill Fantasy Football League and while all 14 of us in the league are giant fantasy football nerds... none of us are graphic design nerds. That is where you all come in...

This league was founded in 2004, has 14 member teams, and entertains the likes of us for 4 months each fall before the long winter comes...

We have a league trophy that weighs more than a small child, a league podcast, and the best smack talkers in the business... what we don't have is a league crest/logo.

Description:

The logo design chosen will be featured on the front page of the MHFFL website (indefinitely), on future league merchandise (hats, t-shirts, blazers etc. - not kidding), and will hopefully be featured on the league trophy somehow.

Follow the link below to see the league trophy:

Everyone in our league has known each other for over ten years as we all went to high school together and this league has been a great way to keep in touch with each other. Every August, we meet back in our hometown to do a live draft of players before the season begins. 

Additional Information:

I should clarify that this fantasy league is for American Football... Not futbol. So all logos/crests should feature the American football and not a soccer ball.

What I want:

The logo must include "MHFFL" and "Established 2004" or "Est. 2004" somewhere on the design. If your artistic discretion would like to include the full league name (Maur Hill Fantasy Football League) then that's great, but it's not a requirement. 

Inclusion of something to relate this back to football would be a nice touch... either an actual football, laces, a helmet, goalposts.... something to do with football.

While we would like to refer to this as our league "crest" don't go too overboard with making it look like one of those old english family crests or coat of arms or anything.

I would say we encourage use yellow and black for the colors (although if you want to use some good old red blooded US of A flag colors that would be a nice touch).

 If you are coming up blank on ideas for where to start, see the links below:

The color orange is 100% off limits.
