  1. I was about to mention the Vikings...but then I remembered that they still use their old one. Tell you this, though...at least their NOB and numbers match. I do think it's time for them to drop the sailboat serifs, though--those have run their course. Someone on here knows more specific details, but I believe the push for more team-specific numbers was originally intended as a measure agsinst counterfeiting...then ended up becoming a trend. They're definitely not alone in this, but they were out front first on this, so...we can all thank Nike for (some of) this. For about the past decade or so Nike has made a habit, especially (& now that I think about it, exclusively) with football, of churning out overdesigned custom numbers that match exactly nothing else in a team's identity. Recent examples include both the Tennessee Snatit Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Other prominent examples include obviously Oregon, but also West Virginia, Syracuse (ugh!), and Arizona. THAT'S when the custom number craze goes off the rails. The killing thing is that they're also capable of producing handsome, classy, fonts as well that look unique at first glance, but also have staying power. Look no further than Wake Forest: Still in the block style so many love, still carry Nike's signature "opposing squared-off corners" trope (see also Oregon State, Cal basketball, and especially Minnesota for other examples of this)--but they're handsomely crafted and don't SCREAM OUT for attention. As a matter of fact, they contain design cues one wouldn't even pick up on without a closely discerning eye: So the fact that they're capable of doing this so tastefully yet still churn out stuff like the Titans, Buccaneers, Syracuse, Arizona, West Virginia and the like just irks me, man. It's like "staying power" is beginning to mean less and less to these manufacturers these days. (Then again that may also be but design, no pun intended, because merchandising and apparel sales $$.) And plenty of blame can go on the team brass as well for either not recognizing or not caring about the value of equity, eschewing that to chase a quick trend. Anyway, that's my two rusted Lincoln's on the matter...
  2. Silly Pablo. That's not the Lion of St. Mark. It's King Moonracer from the beloved Rankin-Bass stop motion animation television Christmas special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The depiction of King Moonracer is included in the FC Cincinnati badge because the name Rudolph - as in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - is of Germanic origin, and Cincinnati is a very Germanic city. Exceedingly Germanic. In fact, it only officially became part of the State of Ohio in August of 1962. Prior to that, the city was an exclave of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Further, the 7 points on King Moonracer's crown, the 3 feathers on his wing, his 4 paws, the 1 sword he wields, and the 5 sides of the soccer ball panel-shaped badge on which he is emblazoned all add up to 20... the number of playthings that Rudolph, Hermy, and Yukon Cornelius encounter on the Island of Misfit Toys in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Just as those toys - Charlie-in-the-Box, an airplane that can't fly, a rocking-dalmatian, a wind-up mouse in a set of nesting clown dolls, a pair of faceless tin soldiers, a winged bear, a push-up toy cat, a sailboat, a blue car, a pink fire engine, a scooter for Jimmy, a dolly for Sue, a spotted elephant, a choo-choo with square wheels on its caboose, a water-pistol that shoots jelly, a bird that swims, a cowboy who rides an ostrich, a boat that can't stay afloat, and a bicycle without handlebars - became "a sackful of joys for millions of girls and for millions of boys", so too is FC Cincinnati a source of tremendous happiness for the soccer supporters of Cincinnati. Which is why King Moonracer's tail forms a "C" in the logo. That "C" is a nod to FC Cincinnati's Managing Owner and CEO: Carl H. Linder III, the Santa Claus who'll make every match day Christmas in Cincy!!! Seriously though, in my opinion, one of Major League Soccer's best team logos. (Painfully-strained marketing-speak aside, of course.)
  3. Good points. Every igloo-based Nordiques concept I've seen here was a downgrade. (I remember one went in an explicitly Inuit direction, and while it was clever, it was too clever by half and wouldn't have worked as a modern sports logo.) I think there's a line weight or two in there you could adjust and that's really about it. You either take it as it is or you don't. It's a tough assignment for sure. There's very little else you can do with the name. Any Nordiques rebranding (like the ones I've wrestled with) would have to be built around Quebec iconography, both city and province, treating the name as a vestige almost like the Sailboat Padres that lots of people hate (but I never did). Unlike the Remparts, Citadelles, and Rafales, there's no unique civic significance to the name, it's just that Quebec City was among the more northern teams in the WHA, but not even the northernmost, which was Edmonton. Somehow I doubt the "Edmonton Northerners" would have developed the same cult following. A little French goes a long way. But isn't that what the Nordique mystique is all about? I know what I love so much was that there was such a decidedly non-English team in the otherwise English landscape of Big Four North American sports. (The Canadiens aren't at quite the remove, the Expos came closer but at the end of the day were still playing good old baseball.) A logo that doesn't quite make sense reinforced that, right there on what was basically a Quebec flag turned into a sweater. Putting aside the broken hearts of the millions who lost a very well-supported team, it's almost a blessing we never got the teal husky rebrand, because the sheer otherness of the Nordiques would have been lost to chasing '90s fads. If we ever get Quebec City back in this dumbass league, which looks like a million-to-one shot at this point, I hope the team would pick up right where the Nordiques left off, weird flawed logo and all, because that's what the people who matter most seem to want.
  4. Atlantic BlueGreens! In all seriousness, that 80s sailboat logo looks too much like the Argos.
  5. A schooner is a sailboat, stupid-head.
  6. That really wasn't their logo. It was their mascot. Their first logo was a jersey devil looming over a map of New Jersey. Then they ditched the logo for a bland wordmark Then they went with an old English "D" Before going to the sailboat logo And finally these monstrosities where they became the Flyers farm team and fused the logos together The team was based in Cherry Hill NJ.
  7. Ad, old buddy, old pal, I assume/hope you're being sarcastic, as i expect you would . That's NOT a sailboat-- (and just for reference, the "poles" or what someone may confuse as "masts" fold out for use in trawling with nets):
  8. Wow, it's a schooner. You dumb bastard! That's not a schooner, it's a sailboat. A schooner is a sailboat stupid head!
  9. I see a sailboat. I see a schooner.Ha ha ha ha. You dumb bastard. It's not a schooner... it's a sailboat.A schooner IS a sailboat stupid head!THERE IS NO EASTER BUNNY!!! Look - over there - IT'S JUST A GUY IN A SUIT!Did I miss some pop-culture phenomenon? I remember seeing this exact discussion in another thread. That kid is back on the escalator again!But my cousin Walter jerked off in public once. True story. He was on a plane to New Mexico when all of the sudden the hydraulics went. The plane started spinning around, going out of control, so he decides it's all over and whips it out and starts beating it right there. So all the other passengers take a cue from him and they start whipping it out and beating like mad. So all the passengers are beating off, plummeting to their certain doom, when all of the sudden, snap! The hydraulics kick back in. The plane rights itself and it land safely and everyone puts their pieces or, whatever, you know, away and deboards. No one mentions the phenomenon to anyone else. Let me give you a little secret, okay?... THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS AN A**HOLE!! That guy? He tried to screw me in a very uncomfortable place...

  17. Why not just have a Top 3/Bottom 3 Logos EVER? That should limit the number of similar future threads. I'll make my picks: 1. This is should be the primary. 2.Was gonna be an honorable mention, but I really like it. Again, should be the primary 3. I feel like a broken record. Ditto the first two Honorable mentions: (Oh, Copperplate... I personally like it, but its just overused. My high school uses it and Rockwell a lot) 28. Clipart, perhaps? 29. Missed a HUGE opportunity here with a sailboat or something. 30. Looks like a paper hat you would get on your birthday from a cheesy Party place
  18. Although this photo makes it look like it has a side panel too, and we're sure that's not on it (right?) THIS is the image you're seeing something in? You've got to be kidding. Um, yes? You can make out the horn on the helmet and the nike logo and the tv numbers. You can see the gold stripe, and the white one start out thin in the front and swoop upwards towards the back. What else would that big white section be? All I see is a sailboat
