    Minnesota Timberwolves

    If you need to explain and defend elements of the logo, then it probably isn't a good logo to begin with. Maybe they should have spent more time on the logo and less on the fancy explanation website, I think Bolt957 nailed it a few posts above (minus the "A" crossbar).

    There's really no other way to look at it other than a design flaw. It doesn't match anything else in the logo and stands out way too much. If anything, it forces some sort of futuristic font into an otherwise backwoods rustic style. I'm sure they've already figured out some corporate talk to explain it away by saying the wolf ate it or something.

    I don't think it's worst case scenario, I think that's exactly what's happening. Making every logo in the league similar in size and shape makes for an easy shoulder patch in a few years. Why else would they do that? They'll go with the corporate shoulder patch logo for a few years until everyone gets used to them and then they'll make the switch. It won't be long before the NBA is just like soccer and everyone will want a big ad on the front because the jerseys won't look authentic without one.
  4. Speaking of the Burlington Bees, I worked for them back in the late 90's when they were a Cincinnati Reds affiliate. Back then, the Reds required (or maybe strongly suggested) that all of their minor league teams feature red as the primary color. To facilitate this, the Bees rolled out red hats (with grey bills) to wear at home and replaced their yellow trim with red. The result was this monstrosity - complete with blue pinstripes. The road unis were even worse. The only red to be found was on the numbers and the trim on the front of the jersey. They apparently satisfied the Reds rules, but certainly didn't look anything like the parent club.

    They're not going to let some two-bit minor league team tell they they can't use a name. A couple of C+ law school grad students can make the London Knights tuck their tails and apologize with one or two billable hours of work and a cease and desist letter or two. Neon Knights would be great, but in another 5-10 years, nobody is even going to remember what neon was - let alone support such an outdated moniker.

    I guess "Red, White, and Boom" was already taken!
  10. I'm a fan of interlocking letter logos, so I didn't think this one was too bad. I totally missed the "dirty" aspect of it. Probably because I'm not 12.

    MasterCard New Logo 2016

    Looks just like the last hundred or so new logos. Is there some sort of new rule that every company on Earth now has to use the same font in their logo?

    College Football Uniforms - 2016 Season

    Is there a good reason why we can't get one consistent color for the entire jersey? It's 2016 - we have unmanned drones flying around and driverless cars on the road. So why does Texas need two different shades of burnt orange on their jersey?

    According to this article, the colors have already been decided - black, gold and gray. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/las-vegas-nhl-franchise-has-its-colors--black--gold-and-gray-160607622.html And this article indicates that a fan vote probably won't happen. It sounds like Black Knights is the likely name. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/las-vegas-nhl-team-name-may-not-be-decided-by-fan-vote-211314350.html
