    Sports logos and the fascination with their origin. I love the business of sports especially the marketing aspects. I'm a diehard hockey and football fan. Also a closet pro wrestling fan.
  • Favourite Logos
    Okay I'm biased, any logo on www.awesomesportslogos.com. From real sports, I'm a fan of so many logos. If they have a creative name and logo, count me in!

  1. I like this a lot. The Buffalo has a mean streak which I've always felt needed to happen. Really like the logo with the Blue and Red "B". It's unique.
  2. This is extremely well done. Love the change of pace for the Caps. Slick lettering and I really like the color scheme. Ovechkin would look amazing in this sweater.
  3. I agree with Welcome Doc. To me, people like the Patriots uniform because of their winning ways. Sometimes a logo is proudly worn and loved due to the team than the actual design. Another example that winning is contagious in so many ways. Growing up in Massachusetts, I loved Pat Patriot but there were so few of us. The games were blacked out, the team wouldn't draw more than 30,000 to the game and the product was consistently one of the worst in the league. Thus, they felt they had to make huge changes which included a new logo. It's funny when I head back to Massachusetts I see the Pat Patriot logo all over the place once again. Even the players love wearing that uniform and gear. I'm just glad that Pat Patriot is relevant. Never should have left in my opinion. Those red jerseys with that logo were sharp.
  4. I dig the gear. It's unique and I love the international sweaters. They keep their traditional look with your cod logo inserted. I'm originally from Massachusetts so Cod is a way of life. That inspired our sports logo the Cape Cod Scrod as a tribute to the awesome Cape Cod Baseball League. Well done, I think that's really cool gear especially with the younger hockey fans. I could see young fans of the NHL wearing your gear. You definitely have great sports logo design talent.
  5. Extremely talented stuff Jackie! I'm a season ticket holder to the Stars (Section 118) and a huge hockey fan. Absolutely love how you have transformed this logo to football. Well done. Go Stars!
  6. It's a shame that the NFL doesn't develop their own offseason minor league. Unless a league is supported by the NFL, people just won't follow it. But if you put it in the offseason and had 3rd and 4th stringers along with practice squad players, there might be some interest because people want to see the future. The issue is that the NFL is basically a 12 month league with OTA's, minicamp and training camp. You would have to fit in a small number of games in a short schedule. The other issue is those players recovering in time to join their clubs for training camp. These guys need some time to heel.
  7. Guys, I appreciate all of the feedback, it's awesome. Tshaw, the saying is more for the content rather than the t-shirt. We use that on the hang tags but I do like your first quote and like how it's short and to the point. GeauxColonels you are correct, I put those in there for a Vegas flare. Not to get too graphic but bobbers replicated something else and we wanted to keep that innuendo. Thanks again guys!
  8. Would love to get some feedback on this logo we just released. We call it the Las Vegas Hookers Fishing Club with the tagline: The only club where you hope what you catch isn't a keeper. We had fun and liked the colors. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks everyone!
  9. You guys are right. Leslie Alexander did raise the rent to make it virtually impossible for the Aeros to stay in Houston. They wanted those dates at the Toyota Center for concerts which they say makes more money and is easier to put on. It's just a shame because they were 7th out of 30 AHL teams averaging just under 6,800 per game. Their last glimmer of hope was actually the Astrodome deconstruction project which would include building a separate 6-10,000 seat arena for Houston Rodeo events and other smaller concerts/events. Reliant Arena is too old of an arena to play in. If that ends up happening, I think an AHL or ECHL team will come back to Houston. Too good of a market and the teams like it because Houston is a good market to fly in and out of for call-ups. Love the post if they saw Virgin Airlines at the airport instead. The Houston Virgins! That would be as cool as the Macon Whoopie! Probably too much info. Sorry to write so much. I dig the feedback on the Aeros logo. My opinion, history of logos like this make it more favorable.
  10. I'm going to miss the Houston Aeros Logo. I love the plane coming out of the puck and the Aerospace industry has amazing history in Houston. Gordie Howe was a Houston Aeros player in the old World Hockey Association. After the news about the Aeros moving to Iowa I wrote a blog about the Aeros history and my frustration with another cool logo giving way to what parent clubs call, "expanding the brand". I just think they are taking away the great art of sports logos. The Iowa Wild? Would love to get your thoughts. Just with some quick research, I learned that Des Moines where the Wild will play their games is named after the Des Moines river which means "River of Monks". Why not the Iowa or Des Moines Monks? If you have any other Iowa names, let me know. I just hate that more and more of these minor league cool names are going away. Hopefully when a new arena in Houston is built which is being talked about, Houston will get another hockey team and call it the Aeros. -Gavin
  11. Even though Miami just changed their uniforms I just don't like the mix of the colors. It may have a Miami flair but I don't care for it. I think the Colorado Rockies are due for a uniform change. To me, their uniform is just there.
  12. Definite upgrade. DPHF, that's a great pickup by you. It does look like a marshmallow in the mouth. Much improved but I just get tired of all the "cat" logos out there. Tough and expensive to change out the name so it's cool that they upgraded the logo.
  13. Atom, I would purchase all three of these jerseys. Great job!! I couldn't agree more raysfan24, I understand that they have to pay their bills but the jerseys do look so much better without the ads.
  14. Vipers, Bengals, Really? C'mon!! Boy you guys can't be more right. The names you guys are throwing out are so much better than what they had. Remember when Logos used to apply to the area the team played in? Brampton was just named by Twitter as using more curse words than anyone else. Here's the link to the article. How about the Brampton %. I'd love to hear the announcers try to figure out that one but the merchandise would be going off the shelves. Realistic, probably not but it would be a huge story. Talk about an attention getter. Since it's the Flower City what about the Brampton Birds and the Bees. Or the Brampton Fertile after the fertilization of flowers. This is exactly why we started Awesome Sports Logos. Our goal is to bring back the fun and creativity back into sports logos. It's almost like Brampton is afraid like so many other sports teams to take a chance. Even though the team is defunct, people still talk about the Macon Whoopie as one of the best hockey team names. All of the names you guys came up with are interesting. I have no interest in any of the finalists unfortunately.
  15. I actually think it's a good idea to change their logo. They have a great new owner Shahid Khan that is commited to the community. I compare this to the Patriots changing their logo in the 90's. The old "Pat Patriot" logo brought back memories of losing and moving to another city. Now since they've won 3 Super Bowls, everyone loves the "Pat Patriot" logo again and I think that the same will happen with the Jaguars when they turn the franchise around. For now, I think it would be a good spike in merchandise sales and would help with their positive image change.
