  1. Did anybody post this already? Cape Breton Eagles, formerly Screaming Eagles, 25th anniversary patch:
  2. What a gorgeous uniform match-up there! I'm surprised at how much I really like the Seattle road uniforms. They looked fine enough in the original press photos, but seeing them on the ice - they really look great and give the darker home ones a run for their money. The socks are really what make that set. That's a weird thing for an adult human male sportsfan to say, but there, I said it.
  3. People roll their eyes at me, but I said from day 1 (of last season) that that should have been Ottawa's Reverse Retro jersey (maybe just a red version of it?) They could have had fun with it as a one-off instead of going the safe and boring route.
  4. I mean that's true, but most fans don't notice details like that the way people on a sports branding forum do. Senators fans, myself included, were just happy the old logo they always loved was back and the 2010s logo that was, at best, tolerable, and at worst, an eyesore, was gone along with those ugly jerseys. Most Ottawa fans barely even realize the outline of the new logo is gold instead of red, unless you pull the logo up to their face and point at it. They don't really care about tracing or the symmetry of the laurels. All I know is that, seemingly overnight, every Senators fan I met was rocking a new hat or something with the 2D logo again and 2010s logo just disappeared completely, hopefully never to be seen again. That's a team "getting it right" in my book.
  5. I do like the Elks' antlers helmet but that alternate set with the new lid is pretty nice. Solid set.
  6. An article on NHL.com says the Coyotes are launching a "new look" in the fall and it's the worst-kept secret in the entire NHL that they are reverting back to Kachina full time. The logos on the official NHL site just won't get switched until the announcement is official - https://www.nhl.com/coyotes/news/coyotes-canvassing-new-look-better-brand/c-325893154 "New branding will debut with a "soft launch" in September, with a complete rebranding scheduled for October. Some of the rebranding will include a redefined color palette and modern twists on classic logos and wordmarks."
  7. Jersey unveiling videos with screenshots of fan tweets asking for the thing they are announcing is so bloody overdone at this point - so far I've seen it from Buffalo, Ottawa, Calgary (if I remember correctly) and now Winnipeg. And I bet Arizona is working on the exact same thing for when they go full-time kachina.
  8. Well hello there, do you come to Coyotes games often? (ha ha just joking, nobody goes to Coyotes games often...)
  9. Is it just me or does the Kraken logo feel really big (i.e. too big) on the final jersey? The logo has grown on me (I was kind of "meh" at first), but I've adored the colours and jersey since day one - but man, there's something about the size of the S that just feels off to me...
  10. Yeah, even the graphics from the official NHL social feeds have the kachina coyote for Arizona. This is the worst-kept secret in NHL branding right now, I'd expect something official from Arizona soon. Hopefully they keep the howling head as an alternate, as rumoured, so the fans who do enjoy that one will still get to see it as part of the overall brand - and it does look nice as a third jersey. https://twitter.com/NHL/status/1418027447325532162/photo/1
  11. I really hope Arizona goes back to Kachina full-time, it's always been one of my favourite older logos. Not everything from the 1990s needs to come back, but the NHL has done a pretty good job so far of bringing back the good stuff (NYR statue of liberty head, Ottawa Senators original logo, old school Calgary and Buffalo colours) while leaving out the garbage. I think the 2021-22 season in the NHL is shaping up to be one of the best-looking seasons for teams on the ice. Hopefully we can just ditch a few of those crappy Reverse Retro and keep the good ones as new alternates.
  12. Yeah, I'm curious as well, though I don't expect a huge departure from previous EE uniforms. The new helmets have the Elk side of the branding, so keeping the green at home with EE on the shoulders seems like a safe bet and a good middle ground between the old and the new... although, why pass up an opportunity to sell even more new merch, especially considering how Elks stuff is flying off the shelves right now. In summation, like a lot of people on the internet: I don't know. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  13. Some cool behind the scenes stuff on the Elks logo design here: https://globalnews.ca/news/7919756/cfl-designers-edmonton-elks-logo/
  14. Does anybody else want this for a pre-game chant? We'll follow the path where the caribou elk walk Our caribou elk headgear is Off On Locked +100 points if you actually get the reference.
  15. Reading the Facebook comments from hometown fans on the Elks page, it's amazing how many are mad that the EE is "gone forever" when if you actually look at what the team posted, they confirmed the EE logo is still going to be used as an alternate, and the store has lots of swag with the new version of the EE. Even the official press release of the new logo has the Elk with a giant EE in the background... Like, you can't be so upset that your precious team that you love so much is changing, but then not actually pay attention to details of the changes? Granted, this isn't a majority, just a loud bunch of naysayers who likely weren't going to be happy with anything... not realizing how lucky they are that this rebrand absolutely soars, when it could have crashed so hard... I'm for anything that makes the CFL look good. A hell of a job by Edmonton and an early favourite for the Chris Creamer logo of the year award...
  16. Wow - I'm loving this a lot more than I thought I would. It's a great name, and the logo is a real beauty. Also antlers on the helmets à la Rams? Sign me up. Bravo, Edmonton. You really kicked it out of the stadium (football joke). Design style reminds me of the new Alouettes stuff - wonder if they went with the same design firm, given how well Montreal's new look was received...
  17. Montreal Alouettes unveil their really boring 75th anniversary logo that looks more like they are honouring a dead player: The team is also supposed to have a new alternate uniform this season to mark the anniversary, I think the logo colours are giving a hint at what we can expect https://en.montrealalouettes.com/2021/01/16/happy-75th-anniversary/
  18. Think it's time to start a new thread for the 2021 season (assuming we have one this year). Anyway, here's one some folks might have missed but the Alouettes just made a FB post announcing it - the wordmark version of the new logo is now flipped, so it's Alouettes on top, then Montreal. New logo already on their website too - and has been on their social media for the last little while without anyone really noticing the change. https://www.facebook.com/mtlalouettes/photos/a.437809341378/10158304526886379 Older version for comparison:
  19. Gas brake honks Gas brake honks honks honks farts gas gas gas
  20. Did we miss this one? Blainville-Boisbriand has a new 10 year anniversary logo and special edition third jersey with an alt logo they've used sometimes in the past. Anniversary logo on... the... socks? What a mess.
  21. Anyone else thinking they might announce some contest to vote on finalist names? Also odd that the article states they are looking at new name AND new logo for the spring, but later on say the team would like to stick with the classic EE. So can we assume we'll see some variant of the current EE? Seems like expensive work for nothing, when 99% of CFL fans are fine with the current logo, any big change there is opening the door to some disaster. Y'know... like...
  22. This is what I was kind of hoping for with Ottawa, maybe this would have been a little more unique than what they went with...
  23. Some missing CFL logos. 1995 - Calgary Stampeders 50th anniversary: Edmonton Eskimos original logo 1954-1969: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 50th Anniversary: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 125th Anniversary: Hamilton Tiger-Cats 150th Anniversary: Saskatchewan Roughriders 100th Anniversary: Toronto Argonauts 130th Anniversary: Winnipeg Blue Bombers 80th Anniversary:
