  1. OK adding to ColorWerx version, but going Full Purple Helmet + Yellow Base Ring (ONE CAVEAT: this is a simply cut and paste hatchet job just to give everyone an idea of what this would look like -- so it's not going to be "perfect"): That looks good! I wish they would put the horns lower on the helmets and make them more vertical like the logo. The horns on the helmets are almost horizontal. There needs to be a little bit of give and take here IMO. If the entire logo mirrors the helmet logo to a T, then you kind of run the danger of having a kind of "redundant" 2nd / alternate logo. The alternate / secondary / non-helmet logo should bring something a little different to the table -- not to mention the fact that it may just ending up looking like a Viking actually wearing the Vikings football helmet (which I don't think is the look you want to go for). Finally, if you think about it, it should be the other way around -- i.e. the helmet portraying the Viking rather than vice versa. In other words, the way I see it, the horns of the helmet is supposed to portray "real" horns of a Viking helmet, but due to the physical limitations of the shape / overall real estate of a football helmet you end up doing what you can / compromising (e.g. angles of the horns and such). But the alternate / non-helmet logo doesn't have any of these limitations (or they have less constrictions -- you can have more detail, depth / perspective, etc.)

  3. I like it. Sure, at first glance it’s not a radical change -- but after the Dolphin's logo fiasco, that is a damn good thing (same could be said to a lesser extent for the Jags' new logo). The two key positive changes IMO are: 1) Changing the horn shape to resemble the horns on the Vik’s helmet (it's a very sensible move, reinforcing consistency); and 2) The shortening of the hair braid’s length -- allowing the overall side profile to be resized larger (you basically get a free “resizing” / more "real estate" out of the logo without much of a cost -- so they will look clearer on jerseys, etc). Add in the cleaner, bolder lines and brighter colors, and you've pretty much got a winner. Yeah, it doesn't knock your socks off at first glance, but if it did, you'd have a never ending controversy (some will hate it, some will love it, why mess with a good thing / tradition?, etc. etc.) This way you respect the franchise tradition and give it sensible, reasonable upgrades / updates -- is there room for improvement? Probably. But most (if not all) of the changes are in the right direction and that should not be overlooked and be given due credit. Grade: A-
