Pro teams in need of a rebrand

Recommended Posts

For the Bengals...

1. Remove side panels

2. Remove colored colar

3. Lose B logo. C with same concept could work?

every team needs to ditch the toilet bowl collars. I agree with everything you said though.

Jets name is in reference to jet airplanes not fighter jets. The name comes from all the commercial planes that flew over Shea Stadium from near by LaGuardia airport. Why the logo looks like this and not like the one's above.y09c9rfac1n79trqqcefemcyo.gif

Commercial jets are large, slow, and not very maneuverable. A fighter jet is sleek, fast, versitile, and aggressive. If they must go with the image of a jet (which I don't think they need to do, the oval NY is perfect) then going with a fighter jet is the way to go.

MetLife is five miles from the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. It's docked on the Hudson between NY and NJ. It's certainly a better local connection than "our stadium is next to the airport".

does it matter which one is better? or which one is actually correct?

Yes, because the point of contention is whether or not the Jets could/should use a fighter jet or a passenger jet in their logo.
all the logos of fighter jets concepts I've see over years have been too modern looking, so I personly don't think they should use a fighter jet in their logo.

That's fine, but you have to admit it's a little weird that an identity that was chosen because of the modern, exciting, new "jet age" should be stuck in retro mode.

Not at all, since the concept of the "jet age" is itself retro. It's tied to a certain time, no reason the Jets' uniforms shouldn't be as well.

I get it, but the idea was the excitement of air travel. "Excitement" and "air" today do not equal a jumbo jet.

But the beauty of their current logo (or at least their alternate) is that they allow everyone to bring their own connotation. Those who want to read into it a retro Mad Men Jet Set vibe can. Those who prefer Top Gun-eroticism get that as well. :P

I like the retro set (as long as there's only one green), but the fighter jet would make a good crazy Nike alt when they come down the line in a few years.

I'd prefer an absence of "jet" imagery all together. The oval NY is all they'll ever need. If they must go with a jet of some sort? I prefer sleek and fast to slow and cumbersome.

No alternate helmets. Not even in a few years.

White shell. Different decal. Volt socks. :)

The NFL still won't allow alternate helmets, since helmets are so central to the teams' branding.

There was that story/rumor about special Thursday uniforms.

This logo used from 1979-1997 actually does depict a fighter jet.

and I actually do like how Buc used it in his concept for the helmet, very simple, clean.. though I would probably prefer a white helmet.

Looks more like the Concorde, the way we'll all be traveling by 1990.

What is the burgundy/yellow/burgundy? I don't remember seeing that.

What they're wearing now, unless you're just being difficult because I said yellow instead of gold. I shouldn't have left off the helmet, I suppose that'd make it burgundy/burgundy/yellow/burgundy.

Honestly, I was confused by that as well. I think it's more common to include the helmet color in a quick 1/2/3 summary than the socks.

Yeah, but the socks are subject to change between home and away while the helmet remains constant. Oh well, usually I write all four with football and hockey. I got lazy.

Understood. They change more now than ever before, so we'll probably have to make four the rule.
