The current logo looks like something a corporation would use. It lacks any personality. Its like someone just traced a map of Long Island from an Atlas, and wrote "New York Islanders" using a "NY" rather than the words "New York" and thought it would be clever making the "Y" look like a hockey stick. There done.
The fisherman has a personalty. Character. The Atlantic Blue color with the teal and white gives the uniforms a nautical feel. Waves for stripes, lighthouses on the shoulders. It makes me feel like I'm on the coast looking out at the mighty Atlantic Ocean with the salty sea air filling my nostrils and feeling the foamy waves splashing up against me.
Those Fisherman jerseys makes me think of this.
The current logo and jerseys make me think of any of these
^That came up when I google searched "Boring Corporate Logos". The Islanders logo could fit in nicely with any one of those.
