Everyone has one. A logo everyone else in the whole community goes nuts for, while you're sitting in your chair just like meh. What are some sports design related things that would be deemed unpopular with most of this place. Here is an example.

With all the Brewers retro look, and everyone drooling at the BiG logo, ive looked at it a lot, and I think it's pretty cool with double meaning. I just think it's a logo that most people like just for the sake of being retro. I like the last two sets more than the original, but thats just me.

Same with most of the old logos in the NHL(like Quebec, Winnipeg, and Minnesota). Speaking of which, I enjoy most of the Edge jerseys.

How about you guys?

I actually liked the Dallas Stars' "Mooterus" logo.

And I agree with you about the Nordiques logo. Looking at it nowadays, it just seems so dated and old. Though I actually like the Jets and North Stars logos.

Cool idea for a thread. I have a feeling we'll see a lot of "you know, i never really liked that either, but i didnt say anything because i thought i was the only one".

Anyway, I'll go with the new Capitals identity, even including the alternate logo that it seems like everyone loves. I realize that r/w/b makes a lot of sense for DC but i still think their old identity was more intimidating and stronger.

I liked the mooterus too. I think there are just too many perverts out there.

Me too.

I also love the original Nashville Predators 3rd Jersey. That shade of mustard was insanely cool and the 3D cat looked great on the front.

Most people don't like, but I do:

Minnesota Vikings - I'm not in love with the uniforms, but I think they're miles ahead of the throwback/alternates.

Seattle Seahawks - I really like the monochrome look at home and can't stand the look when they wear white pants at home. I'm really happy they went with the monochrome home look all the time.

Dallas Stars - I kind of like the college-style jersey. It's unique in the NHL, they would just be better with more green.

Nashville Predators - Navy, silver, and yellow lookgreat together in my opinion. I'm disappointed they're moving to just blue and black.

Most people like these, I have no idea why:

Milwaukee Brewers - The BiG logo. The logo is okay, but has no connection to the team name. It could work for any team with MB as their initials. The 90s uniforms were an improvement, and I like the current uniforms the most. I will say that the royal and yellow looked better than navy and gold.

New York Islanders/Edmonton Oilers - Royal blue and orange just look too bright together. If one of these teams had to switch back, I wish it were Edmonton, not New York, because I actually liked the Islanders edge jerseys (I could have put that up above too)

Two more to add to my list. The Vikings jerseys is one, I hate the retro, the white stripes stink. Also, I never thought this was an EPIC FAIL

I actually like the Islanders' fisherman logo. If it were for a minor league team, it would have been perfect. It says what the nickname is (what exactly is an islander? that guy), what sport (he has a hockey stick, and is in front of a net), it says the location (fisherman wearing a noreaster rain jacket? it's east coast and long island enough), and it looks cool (Gorton's notwithstanding, the guy looks fierce).

And the Nords logo did suck, there's nothing special about it.

and while the logo looks interesting, I never felt the Mooterus fit the stars, but the jersey it's on is pretty great.


And at the risk of starting argument, the Canucks V jerseys are insane. Wearing one, having that bright yellow and orange V on your chest actually messes with your eyes. I made a friend wear it after losing a bet, and he was so embarrassed to be in public with it. Try one on, and I think you might agree with me
I'll respect any opinion that you can defend.

I like the Oklahoma Thunder identity.
I like the Islanders' fisherman logo, though I admit the sweaters that went with it were a little much.
I hate the Brewers' Ball in Glove logo.
I like the current Coyotes look.
I never thought the Canadiens' white sweaters were anything special.

In fact, if you'll look down at the comments here, you see I was the first to comment that I LOVED THEM.

If you hadn't noticed, Chawls loves his wrestling, whether it be real life or sim. :D

"I walked away from the Last Great Time War, I marked the passing of the Timelords, I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained -- no time, no space, just ME! I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man! And I watched universes freeze and creations burn, I have seen things you wouldn't believe, I have lost things you will never understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it! Take it all baby! Have it! You have it all!"
