  1. I'm with QCS regarding the handles. Even though I know that the blades are behind the head, the handles appear to be just floating there. I think showing some blade with the handles before going behind the head makes sense. I'm not sure about bringing gold/brown/tan into the logo. I think it's stronger with just black and gray......even if there are multiple shades of gray. Overall it's a great start for an update. Did you consider any other shield shapes? ETA: I just went back through the thread and saw the progression of the Raiders logo. I'm glad you went away from the half-shield, half-flag concept, it just didn't seem to work. I still stand by my comment that the gold/brown/tan looks forced. I think the Raiders look is very effective without a third color.
  2. I like this a lot. I think the one tweak I would suggest would be to elongate the lightning bolt at the top so that it doesn’t get lost/muddled in the “O.”
  3. Not commenting on the name one way or the other, but I’m really not a fan of the graphics package. Looks very minor league-ish.
  4. The new “S” is much better, but not really anything special. The lion logo is fine. I would hope that ends up on their football helmets. The “SLU” logo is problematic for me, though. I hate the way that the “U” interacts with the state outline - sitting behind rather than being one the same level as the other letters. I also don’t like the placement with the left downstroke of the “U” lining up above the end of the “L” and creating that break in the letter.
  5. I think the update is pretty good. The logo is still familiar which, I think, is important in a series like this. The biggest issue I have is the top of the lightning bolt and how it comes off of the “z.” The slight incline away just looks awkward. I think it would look better either being flush with the top of the letter or starting above the top of the letter as in the old logo.
  6. I’m on the side of 3 colo(u)rs on the logos. I feel the 2-tone is lacking in contrast. I think white enhances the logo and feel like it would look good on the helmet too.
  7. These are fine. The comparisons posted above of the old jerseys vs the new show just how much of a mess the prior jerseys were. It's a definite upgrade that would use a few tweaks that many have mentioned. I just can't help but laugh and shake my head at the prominent Tide logo in that video and graphics.
  8. Was it? Or did this just give them an easy out to rescind the decision? Hmmmm.....
  9. If the Saints insist on staying with black pants, I would much rather what you have here. Nice update with the striping. I think the gold pants could use white with the black stipe as well. You've definitely improved the sleeve pattern, I can see the inspiration now. I'm still not sure it works for me....but that's more of a matter of personal opinion. Font is MUCH better too. Nice work.
  10. I’ve personally never been a fan of the black monochrome look for the Saints, and this really hasn’t changed my mind. I’ll leave it at that. I understand what your intent is with the sleeve pattern, but wrought ironwork in New Orleans is typically more intricate than what you’ve got here. I think that needs revisiting. I don’t look at that and think about wrought iron at all. I think that design needs to scream “wrought iron” to be effective. I like the white stormtrooper set and would like to see the same pant striping carried over to the black and gold sets of pants instead of just a single stripe like you have now. Finally, I think the number font is just too basic. I’d like to see something closer to what they use on their color rush unis.
  11. Exactly. And let’s not act like they haven’t been good offensively for a number of years. The personnel he had this year is vastly superior to what he’s inheriting in Austin.
  12. Ok, so I watched the video in the press release, and it mentioned that the logo colors are purple, green & gold. Maybe it’s just my device, but the logo posted looks more orange, navy and greenish to me. Does it look that way to anyone else?? I agree that the diamonds don’t really seem to fit in. I also don’t really like the stripes under the text - maybe it’s intended to be a motion line? The crescent in the basketball is a nice touch.
  13. I’m hopeful that they only used the gold box because it’s part of the CFP. What bothers me the most is the minuscule arrow below the score to indicate possession.
  14. Thinking back to new identities I remember being unveiled in my lifetime, none struck me more than the Florida Marlins. I loved everything about their look from the logo to the uniforms. As a 13-year old casual Cubs fan, I bought a couple Marlins hats and even a Marlins lamp for my nightstand in my bedroom. It’s a shame what that brand has become now.
