Yup you're coming along nicely. One thing that I notice is that you don't have a border on anything. Here's how: create a new layer on top of everything > select all (ctrl + a) > edit > stroke. 1 px black is the norm, make sure location is set to inside. Then you can just deselect (crtl + d). Not everything needs a border but it just makes things look a little neater I think. Good job overall though. ;-D

Your best IMO. I really like the player effect. Maybe desaturate the stadium BG and throw an orange/black gradient map on that baby? Good job though. ;-D

thats my suggestion also, and work on the font/text...it takes away from an otherwise very good sig.
