  1. 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.






    Older version for comparison:

    I'm finally ready to rank the reverse retro jerseys. I stayed up late for several weeks, did the calculus, computed an algorithm, and based on that came up with a metric that is inarguable truth.


    Good = honks 

    bad = farts.


    I will not elaborate further, especially if you ask me to. 


    Bruins - honks

    Sabres - honks

    Red Wings - farts

    Panthers - honks

    Canadiens - honks

    Senators - honks

    Lightning - honks

    Maple Leafs - farts

    Hurricanes - honks

    Blue Jackets - farts

    Devils - honks

    Islanders - farts

    Rangers - farts

    Flyers - honks

    Penguins - farts

    Capitals - honks

    Blackhawks - farts

    Avalance - honks

    Stars - farts

    Wild - honks

    Predators - honks

    Blues - honks

    Jets - farts

    Ducks - honks

    Coyotes - honks

    Flames - honks

    Oilers - farts

    Kings - honks

    Sharks - honks

    Canucks - honks

    Golden Knights - honks

  3. 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...





  4. Some missing CFL logos.

    I want to love it, but I can't help but see a personalized handkerchief affixed to a whoopee pie... that's being studied by four 18th century long-handled quizzing glasses... that are emerging from a dollop of the original blue-and-white Aquafresh toothpaste.


    To be fair though, who doesn't love whoopie pies?


    If Atlantic Canada ever gets another chance at a franchise, I'm voting for "Atlantic Whoopie Pies"

    I don't think these are Nords throwbacks.


    It's the gloves from the Stadium Series set. The fact it has Mac's name on it is a dead giveaway that it's specifically the gloves from this set.


    Today I learned: I think I'm the only person here who actually likes those Avs jerseys.... please don't hurt me.

    The Sens have also kind of screwed that up too. They're a 92-93 expansion team. 21-22 would have been 30 seasons if there was no lockout, but as it is, 02-03 is technically the 30th anniversary and season, IMO. 


    This is true and it comes up every time a team has an anniversary... most teams are recognizing the anniversary in years, not in seasons, so it doesn't really change. Take Columbus and Minnesota next season - their logos just say "20" with 2000-2020. Yes, they only played 19 seasons in that time, but it remains to be their 20th anniversary as franchises. That seems to be the league standard for all anniversaries post-lockout.

  8. The Ottawa rebrand scores a solid 8/10 for me - I'm ecstatic that the old logo is back, even if a modernized version (or that reworked alternate everyone loves) would have likely been a better choice, I'll take it.


    As a lifelong Sens fan, the 2D logo was always the Senators for me. the 3D one was cool, I didn't hate it, but it just felt like the team was wearing an alt logo full-time. It never felt right, and those jerseys were... not the greatest.


    Is the new stuff perfect? No. But it's a great starting point. The season after next is the team's 30th anniversary, so I'm sure we'll see a cool (red) third jersey with the "O" come back, and hopefully that shoulder S will be replaced by the heritage O permanently. Then they can just add the black sleeves to the away jerseys and there you go... leave well enough alone after that.


    For fans who may not be 100% pleased with the rebrand, remember... with this organization, they could have gone with something ridiculous like the shoulder S as their new primary. It's stupid decisions like that you can come to expect from the Sens, given the low bar they have set. So yeah, let us fans celebrate the rebrand for the sole reason that it is not a disaster.

    Ottawa releasing these exclusively on a local news network that no one outside of Ottawa can see, instead of social media or the team's website, is pretty peak Senators. 


    They advertise a 6pm unveiling...then post this at 6:03pm for some unknown reason...just f'ing unveil them already...




    A parking garage? Nice, what's in the bag, new uniforms or crystal meth?

    Hopefully they bring back Katchina full time as well


    That's ... kind of... boring.


    I'm not a big fan of this new trend of "using an outline of the state for an anniversary logo." It's cool once or twice, but when everyone and their dog/coyote does it, it starts getting overused. Especially where Arizona did that already with the 20th anniversary one.


    Also would have been cool to see a full kachina rebrand but... oh well, next year it is, I guess. It's totally coming, that much is pretty well guaranteed at this point.

  11. That's a real shame about the black sleeves... was really hoping this chinese knockoff site from a few months ago had been accurate. I'm thinking this is a way better product than what we're going to see tomorrow:


    EDIT: Also weird that the original report in The Athletic said the away jersey had the black forearms... not sure who to believe anymore.


    The home jersey mockup is black with two red bands on the arms, encasing the numbers, and a single red stripe around the bottom. The away jersey is white with red bands on the arms and black forearms. It has a red stripe atop a black stripe running around its bottom edge.
