Mind as well bring up this little bit of news from Real Madrid changing their logo by removing the cross on their badge (in the UAE only) to appease their sponsors.

As you can imagine there are people not happy about this.

So Brew City FC, the potential NASL/USL Pro team based in Milwaukee, just released a poll to let people vote for the team's crest. There are six logo options and you rank each one on a scale from one to five: https://docs.google.com/a/csumb.edu/forms/d/191zQ5ZbMK9M__daPPDyk4WqVQjT5lnL2grjgnRBAWQ8/viewform

The second logo (the gear and hops with inspiration from Pabst) is actually the work of the CCSLC's very own illwauk (you can see his concept thread here: http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/101109-brew-city-fc-updated-1128-poll-added/ ), so it's always good to see representation there. Here's the full set of the options in one image.

As do I. I also like the brown version bottom left. Any of those three would be fantastic for the club. I like the Hoan Bridge on the bottom-center, but the ball and "FC" look familiar, like they were lifted from another design.

And about time they had at least a USL Pro club, given the city's soccer history and youth participation.

Seconded on darkening the grey, and I think illwauk wanted to darken the grey but didn't have the time. And I do like the top right one also. While I like the bottom left one since it reminds me of the color of beer, I feel like navy fits Milwaukee more (though I can't say for sure why).

Also I'm surprised no one mentioned this, but the San Jose Earthquakes announced recently that sponsorship rights to their new stadium for next season go to Avaya, which is based in Santa Clara. The new stadium will be called Avaya Stadium and should be complete in time for the 2015 MLS season (source: http://www.sjearthquakes.com/news/2014/11/quakes-announce-avaya-new-stadium-naming-rights-partner )

It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it's decent enough at least.

Does indeed.

To get back to Brew City for a moment, I flat-out love Illwauk's logo. Best of the bunch. Nice tip of the hat to Pabst Blue Ribbon. But I wonder if it's so direct a lift as to create IP issues.

Make the diagonal line blue to match, and they could also incorporate a blue sash into their white shirts.

Absolutely shameful from Barca to accept that, I thought that they had understood that they shouldn't be stupid after the PSG lookalike. It's better than Inter's pinstripes, because at least both colors are involved, but this spits on 115 years of history. The away kit is also awful, it's the flip side of the coin of the annoying no stripes on the back trend

The template in those images looks amazingly dodgy. Anyone got a large pinch of salt I can borrow?
