There's a new halftone design for the wallpapers! I wanted to utilize something that was a bit simpler and less cluttered. I'm really happy with the results and hopefully you are as well.
If the Pistons sneak into the playoffs I'll update the DSC and DSW accordingly.
The Tigers wallpaper has all of the live TV games on it. Radio broadcasts and a MLB Network replay are included on the DSC and DSW.
Tigers Spring Training returns this month. I'll update the wallpaper and DSC/DSW if there's any additional TV/radio games.
The Pistons are retiring Richard Hamilton's #32 on Sunday the 26th versus Boston and the Spirit are retiring Vincent Trocheck's #89 tonight versus Sault Ste. Marie.
Hopefully things go well for the Lions tonight so I can update the DSC and DSW with playoff action.
Happy New Year!
UPDATE (1/2): The Lions/Seahawks Wild Card Game has been added to the DSC and DSW. Please download the updated versions (I uploaded them this time, I promise).
I created a "Farewell to The Palace" logo and used it in the background of the Pistons wallpaper. If the team comes out with an official logo, I'll replace it.
I'm assuming that Fox Sports Detroit will simulcast the 2017 NHL Centennial Classic Alumni Game via NHL Network on the 31st so the Red Wings wallpaper just has FSD while the DSC and DSW have both FSD and NHLN.
UPDATE (12/10): I forgot to add the Red Wings and Pistons games on Sunday the 11th to the DSC and DSW. Please download the updated versions.
I have made modifications to the Carbon Fiber wallpaper template. Now the Red Wings wallpaper will have a red base instead of black!
A few notes:
• Tigers: Monday's game against Cleveland will only be played if necessary due to playoff implications. I will update the DSC and DSW if the Tigers play in the postseason.
• Pistons: No word if the preseason home games will be streamed at Pistons.com/Fox Sports Go like they were last season. Otherwise, the only way to watch any games is the two road contests being carried by NBA League Pass.
• Red Wings: The preseason game on the 2nd versus Chicago will be joined in progress on NHL Network at approximately 6:30 PM.
• Detroit Sports Wallpaper: I've increased the size of the calendar to the maximum I probably can.
It's the busiest month of the year with ten team schedule wallpapers.
Playoff updates will be made when needed to the wallpapers, DSC and DSW.
UPDATE (4/12): The first round schedule for the Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning has been added to the DSC and DSW. Also, the Tigers and Pistons wallpapers have been updated with some TV network changes. I'll have more updates out when the Pistons' first round schedule is out.
I'm sorry that I wasn't able to release this set yesterday. The way I coded my site made it impossible without some major revisions. My apologies.
Extended TV/radio information for the Tigers is available on the Detroit Sports Calendar and Wallpaper.
I was barely able to fit the Drive's final regular season game on April 2nd onto that set. This method is preferred over having an entire month's wallpaper with only one game on it.
Since the Tigers open their Spring Training schedule on Leap Day, I'll have March's wallpapers and calendar set out on the 29th.
UPDATE (2/28): The way I coded my site won't allow me to bring you the March set on Monday, February 29th. Sorry.
Happy New Year! I decided against making a set of "retro month" wallpapers as I feel like it gets old after a couple of weeks of usage (not to mention the added work it creates for myself). So, for the foreseeable future there will be no "retro month" editions of the wallpaper sets. I have not been able to figure out when the NHL All-Star Game is supposed to start, so it is listed as "TBD" for now. I'll update the Red Wings wallpaper, DSC, and DSW once I get that information.
I changed the background logo on the Red Wings wallpaper to the stylized "D" that will be worn on the Stadium Series uniforms in February.
Expect a blast to the past for next month's edition.
Get on board the Pistons hype train while you still can!
More tweaks to the base design of the wallpapers. Now there's a dimmed team background logo on all of the sets. I changed the Red Wings background from red to black to improve visibility.
I also designed new Fox Sports Detroit and Fox Sports Detroit Plus logos that are based off of the new FS1 logo.
Detroit Pistons • Detroit Red Wings • Detroit Tigers • Grand Rapids Drive • Grand Rapids Griffins • Great Lakes Loons • Kalamazoo Wings • Lansing Lugnuts • Toledo Mud Hens • Toledo Walleye • West Michigan Whitecaps
UPDATE (4/15): The Red Wings' first round playoff schedule has been added to the DSC and DSW. The Tigers had their game on the 21st versus the Yankees moved to FSD+ so the Tigers wallpaper has been updated as well.
I am now using the logo outlines (or lack thereof) specified by the teams themselves instead of outlining every logo the same way. Exceptions had to be made for the Cleveland Indians and the Pittsburgh Pirates logos. These logos do not specify any outlines; ones had to be added for visibility purposes.
The font has changed to IRON MAN OF WAR 001 RIVETLESS on the wallpapers and the site. I wanted something a bit different and this fits the bill.
The Detroit Sports Calendar and Wallpaper will both be updated with Red Wings (and Pistons, by sheer miracle) playoff games once the schedule is announced. Further updates will happen if necessary.
Welcome to the latest version of this web site! I have rebuilt everything from the ground up in order to provide a better experience for both end users and myself.
The monthly wallpapers and Detroit Sports Calendar will now be on a single post.
I have increased the amount of wallpapers each month to 23. The maximum resolution is now 5120 x 2880 and there are a few with 21:9 aspect ratio for those with super-wide screen monitors. Your wallpaper resolution should be automatically detected; If not, just pick the closest one.
The release schedule is back to midnight of the first of each month.
Farewell, Plymouth Whalers. Wallpapers for the new OHL team in Flint will be on this site next September.
