Update: I decided I didn’t like the original ones after all and redid them.
Since the changeover, we’re trying to flush out the old images and make all new ones. One of the efforts has been replacing all the generic sports related headline/chip images for web. While all are saved as 640×320, they resize smaller online for a more user friendly preview.
The original concepts had crowd/players or otherwise more stuff going on in the background. This design is offset from center, more basic and will be more uniform.
Images were pulled from AP graphics bank and Thinkstockphotos
