    More branding done by 80-year-old white guys. I’m not suggesting the players should name the teams, but it’s 2019, and only a marketing team of old white men would come up with “dreamers”, or “pioneers”, or “explorers”, or half the names that get suggested every time there’s a potential expansion team. 


    What kinds of names would players come up with?

  2. For years I had a vague fondness for the Braves given their ties to Ted Turner, the man who gave us Cartoon Network and Boomerang. I really liked the Turner networks in general before Time Warner ruined them.

    Oh, wow... Lol okay.


    None of these things were suppose to happen. This was suppose to be predictable (or maybe it really was). I'm rooting for the Nats from here on out, but the fear of a STL-NYY World Series is becoming more imminent.


    I mean, we were just barely spared a Yankees-Dodgers World Series in 2017, be glad we won't be getting that this year either.

    I hope whomever designed those Circle 7 logos for the ABC affiliates got a hefty royalty check. 


    On mobile so can't post link easily but the ones that look like (7) with a swept seven.

    All five of the old-line ABC O&O stations (WABC New York, KABC Los Angeles, WLS Chicago, KGO San Francisco, WXYZ Detroit) used it, and there was a time when it was actually the official logo for the ABC Owned Television Stations division.

    Colorado's got...






    The last one is a 'The CW' station.


    They're ranked by local popularity, also.


    EDIT: Forgot Rocky Mountain PBS. They've got my favorite of the bunch.



    Our local station logos have seen better days...

    Odd thing is that I know I've seen Safeway stores in SoCal, in addition to Vons. Although Pavilions is a bit different, it seems to have a slightly more "upscale" brand to it.


    Funny thing, Safeway actually sold their SoCal stores to Vons, and later bought Vons outright.


    As for Kroger's naming, people here definitely seem to think of King Soopers as "local."

  6. I'm 22, so I guess I would count as a millennial, but I am a broadcasting enthusiast who's seen examples of NBC referring to the xylophone throughout their history:




    (notice how that completely skips the Snake and the "N")





    As recently as 2015, they've also sold merchandise bearing the xylophone logo.

    I prefer the peacock logo, but I agree about the feathers. I'm interested to see if you could find a way to combine both logos into one.


    The peacock and the xylophone as one logo?

    In all honesty, I don't really like the xylophone logo. The peacock looks great, even with only 5 feathers, but the xylophone wordmark just doesn't look good, imo. I'd cut all the letters off at the same length and just have it read 'NBC'.


    Something like this?




    I'm not sure I like this. The colors have their appeal but the form is indistinct compared to the xylophone.

    Thanks for the encouraging words.

    One of the issues with yours is the feathers get cut off by the peacock's body instead of finishing their curve. The original is cleaver because it uses the negative space to form the body, whereas yours it's too obvious that it's a white shape overlaid on top.


    The original design and its 1979 incarnation (which itself has issues, pertaining mostly to how well it might shrink) did the same thing.

    Looks good as a faux throwback.


    Would it not work as the main logo?


    I admit I have pondered having it play second fiddle to the revised xylophone, but the NBCUniversal corporate rebrand flap a few years ago showed that the peacock is held in very high esteem by the public, and so even pushing it into the supporting cast might hurt the brand.
