Why the team doesn't use this is absolutely mind boggling.

 

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you. 🙂

As Derek said (and I think I’m remembering this right), that logo was done in house at OSU, and it was out for roughly one day before Rickabaugh (designer of the original?) said something to the effect of, “What are you doing? Give me a couple hours and we can fix this.” The current logo was out within the week.

Ignoring the colors, the typeface and spur logo are both big ups

It's a downgrade from this though

Not that think any of them are actually good primary logos.

Ignoring the black outline phase in between:

The same idea/profile, but with simple detailing and fewer jagged points.

 

Also, the Orioles combining a long history of cartoon bird logos into one:

A major downgrade.

 

The uniforms were more of a downgrade than the logo was. Even so, I too prefer the OG falcon.

Also a downgrade.  The extra black outline muddies the B and makes it so much less legible at distance or smaller size.

Sorry Bmoore, but I'm with him... You and I see eye to eye on a lot of things, but not on the Falcon's identity.

The old falcon did need updating, yes, but the resulting angry bird with the jacked-up swollen foot and the squat wings wasn’t the answer. They could’ve done much better with the modernization than that. 

 

I cant find a good picture that looks a lot like the logo’s intended form, but these three come a little close at least with the wings and head:

What the original’s got on the current to me is a more correct proportion regarding the wings. They were longer and the falcon seems larger and more imposing. The current’s wings just look too small and diminutive and don’t seem “correct”. Throw in that inexcusably huge foot and the whole thing’s got a proportion problem. They were so concerned with making it look fast and speedy and angry that they neglected to make it look right

 

Now, to each thier own, but I really do think they could’ve updated the Falcon and done a much better job than they did. That’s just how I see it.

On what planet 😅.  The Bruins 1996 logo was terrible.

The extra black outline makes the "B" more prominent which is exactly what the logo needed.  What looks muddled to me is how thin the outline on the previous logo was.

That is in turn a downgrade from this:

So much simpler and easy to read.

A thousand times yes. The Florida Panthers' pre-soccer logos were awesome. I like the overly detailed first one even better.

 

EDIT: For some reason I thought we were talking about downgrades. I consider the above a definite downgrade.

Both of the Falcons' logos are greatly flawed. The old one looks like silhouetted clip art that you would see on Microsoft Office, and the current one is over-designed with too many elements and outlines. While the old logo is a more accurate image of a falcon, the current one is more up-to-date IMO so I consider it a refresh.

The gold lines get lost from a distance; they need black around them.

Yep. Better than both of them.  The “B” doesn’t get lost in the noise the way it does on the modern logo.
