  1. You're obviously not from here. No one from this area would ever consider the newark path and nj transit part of the NYC transit system. But anyway - there's a difference between representing New York and acting like u actually play in New York city when you don't. The Giants, jets, and islanders all represent the New York metro area-- but none of them use specific New York city imagery as part of their branding. There's a difference.Sorry I should have been clearer, Harrison is part of the New York METROPOLITAN Area, as in centering around New York City, hence the name METROPOLITAN Football Club. Anyone who lives in Manhattan knows that the PATH makes stops between 33rd St. and Christopher Street in Manhattan, which I'm sure you're aware is in New York. You're pretty much proof that NYCFC fans are the trolls of MLS. I'm from Manhattan, and I'm a proud Red Bulls fan, you're obviously incredibly excited to jump on the MCFC bandwagon, so go right ahead, but don't forget that Metro/Red Bull has represented this city in MLS for two decades. In other news, I'm currently working on changes to the logo including an updated soccer ball, font, and positioning of the M on the crest. I hear you guys about Verdana. In terms of the soccer ball, I'm thinking about changing it to 3 panels a side to stay accurate with the inaugural MLS ball, but aesthetically and historically I think it's more accurate to stick to the "volleyball" format.
  2. NYCFC existing doesn't mean that Metro no longer represents New York, New York is where the fan base exists, and RBA is on the NYC transit system.
  3. For those of you wondering where the windmill/beaver/flour barrel icon comes from, it's the Seal of NYC. The soccer ball looks like a volleyball, because soccer balls used to look like volleyballs. If you look at the majority of Premier League/La Liga logos containing a soccer ball, it looks like a volleyball. (The original MLS game ball also looked like a volleyball). I feel that the M is important for a tie in to Metro history while staying original. The plain stripes evoke too much of a FCB, Newcastle, West Brom, AC Milan, Juventus vibe to me. Why does every team that wears stripes have to include stripes as a part of their logo? My best example is Inter Milan, classic logo, classic stripes which don't exist on the crest. I'm always futzing around with the logo, and I have taken a look at other shapes besides the roundel, but currently this is the most aesthetically appealing concept to my eye. That could change, this is an ongoing project.
  4. As a I'd have agreed if there would be a possible rivalry between MetroStars & Cosmos. But really, MLS is full of bull for trying to shove pre-manufactured rivalries down the fan's throats. Who :censored:ing cares about NYCFC despite bandwagon fans and american MCFC enthousiasts (which is a pleonasm). Same goes for the brand new Los Angeles FC they just announced to take Chivas' place. FFS MLS !! As a Red Bulls supporter I totally agree with you regarding NYCFC. Below is the updated crest w/ changes to the windmill. To answer your question about the colors and the retro M, here is the old logo. The M has been gaining traction recently in Metro supporters culture, so I thought it important to include in the crest. In terms of the colors, the old colors were Red and Black with a touch of gold, while the new colors have been Red and White with a touch of gold and a touch of blue. Red and Gold have been the continuous thread throughout Metro/Red Bulls history. The center of the crest remains red and white to acknowledge the Supporters Shield winning team of 2013, while the outer ring is Red and Black to reflect the original colors of the franchise.
  5. For those of you not familiar with the obscurities of New York soccer culture, there are three major teams in the city; a brand new, Americanized clone of Man City called NYCFC, the reincarnation of Pele's NASL franchise, the New York Cosmos, and the only current MLS franchise until 2015, the New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls were formerly known as the MetroStars until 2006, when the team was purchased by Red Bull and rebranded. Supporters of the Red Bulls generally pine for the days of the MetroStars (when we had our own individual identity), fans still wear MetroStars apparel, and the lyrics of the supporters songs still contain the old team name "Metros". Whenever Red Bull sells the team, there will be an inevitable rebranding, hopefully in the vein of the old Metro moniker. I've done a rebrand of the team: now Metropolitan Football Club, the name evokes the MetroStars of the 90's without the 1990s flavor of a new Nike franchise. Below is the new logo:

  10. I decided to go with the ice blue instead of the blue/green color scheme because I think that it's more important that the game is being played in cold weather than it is in New York. Using the colors of the teams who play in the Super Bowl stadium isn't really a thing, and I think that that's just in case one team does happen to make it to the super bowl. Since the skyline motif has been done about million times for New York events, I decided I'd go in another direction.
  11. Hey guys, I recently entered this logo in a contest on Uni-Watch, a site with which I'm sure you guys are familiar. I wanted to hear feedback from this community since there are so many contestants on Uni-Watch that very few of the logos are getting comments. If you like the logo, it would be great if you guys would vote for me here: http://www.uni-watch...-logo/#comments Scroll up bit to find the poll. Here's the logo: The game is being played in MetLife Stadium, so the logo is meant to reflect the facade, while incorporating the fact that it will be the first cold weather outdoor Superbowl.
