Is this the biggest crest downgrade in American soccer history?

Recommended Posts

I like the Silverbacks name much better, but what's with the hype for that logo? Neither logo is good so it's hard for me to call it a downgrade.

Which ones? You can't just make a statement like that and not specify which MLS teams you think have a worse crest than this abomination... 

New England, DC, Red Bulls, and I think an argument could be made for Salt Lake.

 

Look, its not a great logo, but abomination is a bit much. If I saw it in passing I wouldn't look twice. Its not as good as the silverbacks crest but for a US developmental soccer team its not an abomination. I don't know if its because you have some personal stake in the team but you're being really hyperbolic about it.

D.C. United's crest is the best logo in MLS, and is in the top tier worldwide.

 

This new Atlanta SC logo is clipart trash.

To each their own.

I have never understood the love for D.C. United's logo... in any of its incarnations. From the team's original mark (which wouldn't have looked out of place in the Weimar Republic or the early days of Germany's National Socialist movement) to the current version (straight off the hood of a Pontiac Firebird), I've always considered it one of the most overrated logos in all of sports. In my opinion, it doesn't crack the "Top Ten" of MLS logos, let alone qualify for "the top tier worldwide".

DC United’s logo looks like something a kindergartener would draw in 1941 Berlin. The idea is fine but the execution is horrible.

 

Atlanta SC is clipart trash but so is nearly every other crest out there. It does nothing to set itself apart from being particularly terrible.

I think simply removing the soccer ball and enlarging the peach would help. Even spending a day trying to get subtle, non-cheesy, soccer ballish lines on a peach could be interesting. Maybe it'll just be a one year thing until they have time to refine?

The older crest looks like a very weak SB Nation logo.

That's near gold right there.
