  1. Yes, as is typically done during debates. MOD EDIT
  2. A clear-cut straw-man if you'll ever see one.
  3. Words do evolve. But many don't. "Redskin" has only one meaning in the English language with which I am familiar -- and it refers to a racial stereotype. "Bignoses...C'mon, Steve, we're not making fun of Jews, words evolve! Don't think of it as 'Big noses', think of it as 'Bignoses'. See, different!"
  4. I think the "C" makes a great cap logo. It just sucks as a primary logo. "Yeah, I know our team is named the 'Flaming Queerz,' but just try not to think of it as meaning anything other than 'someone who plays for my beer league baseball squad.'" The "C" forms the abdomen.
  5. Logos associated with failure.

    Perhaps because failure isn't an emotion?
  6. Cinnamon Toast Crunch new box

    Oh hell no. I've always lover the anthropomorphic cereal pieces. Too bad they got rid of one of them.
  7. New Cedar Point logo

    Very much devoid of character (which is the last thing you should use to describe the logo of an amusement park!), although the current (now old) logo is hardly any better. I've always resented how all of Cedar Fair's parks use the same generic, cookie-cutter wordmarks: Look, I understand the desire for consistency, but you can do that without sucking the character out of each one. My hometown Canada's Wonderland (which I visited all the time growing up and still visit at least once per summer) changed their logo slightly last year: The park made attempts last year to become more Canadian-themed, so I'm fine with the addition of the maple leaf (it's what I call the Blue Jays principle -- if you're going to slap a maple leaf into your branding cuz CANADA, that's lazy pandering (like McDonald's)...but if you're actually going to make "Canadian-ness" part of what you do (like the Blue Jays' efforts to grow the game across the country and like Wonderland's efforts to return to its roots and become a Canadian theme park) I think it's justified). Still, while I support the change, the execution is pretty poor. I would have preferred it if the leaf were slightly larger and came up from behind the wordmark, like the Molson Canadian logo (although perhaps that might be stepping on Molson's toes too much). Better yet, modernize this beauty: ---- Point is that some character is a welcome improvement, although it doesn't go nearly far enough. To my knowledge, most of these parks have their own histories (i.e. they weren't originally owned by Cedar Fair), and so they should be allowed much more creative freedom in their branding. Many of the parks (including Wonderland) were turned into living advertisements for Paramount products when they were owned by Viacom. Even now, Cedar Fair seems to care all about adding high-intensity rides branded with generic names ("Behemoth," "Fury 325," "Banshee"), with little regard to each individual park's identity. I'd much prefer to keep the "theme" in "theme park" and let the logos reflect that.
  8. Political Logos

    As the New Democrats finally start getting the ball rolling... Not entirely sure Julian even has a logo, but that wordmark is also what he uses on his website. None of the three are remotely inspiring, although I like Caron's use of purple.
  9. Ontario 150 (anniversary logo)

    Saw this for the first time during the World Juniors. I keep seeing a bicycle. Also, to my knowledge, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Québec don't have 150 logos. -------- I know we went over all the proposed logos in the Canada 150 thread, but holy crap did they pick literally the worst-possible design. I think this one's beautiful: Granted, you'd probably run into trouble when scaling it down, but I'd buy a t-shirt with that on it in a heartbeat.

    I can assure you that putting a team in Québec will not accomplish that. No and yes (respectively). While the city itself gets a lot of eye rolls from the rest of the country, the Blue Jays are very popular from sea to sea. They put a lot of effort into growing the game across the country, and host a "Winter Tour" every offseason where some of the players/management/famous alumni go across the country doing autograph sessions, hospital visits, etc. This is evident every time the team visits Seattle.

  12. MLB Changes 2017

    The Jays have managed to botch baseball perfection in just five years by wearing their blues way too often, extending the Canada Day jerseys to Canada Baseball Day, having hideous and cheesy BP caps that they insist on wearing during the regular season, adding a full-time red alt, and now adding yet another cap to the mix that they're sure to wear at irregular intervals. It really was too good to be true, wasn't it?
  13. Blue Jays font

    Penumbra Flare Standard Bold is pretty close as well.
