Am I the only one who gets annoyed everytime I see the Hurricanes jerseys because the logo looks like it needs to be about 10% bigger? Looks too small in my eyes. 

I'm annoyed because it's a :censored: logo on a dull as dishwater uniform.

Have you SEEN the logo on a white jersey? It's weak, flat and the whole idea of a huge fanged predator is kind of lame.

 

Sure, blow any professional sports team logo up nice and big and it looks good, but in the context of how it's used - i don't rate it it at all. 

 

The Ducks' logo is poorly executed. It's very uncreative and unrefined.

Disagree with pretty much all of this.  Flat...no.  Lame...not really, considering the back story.

That's a really poor image to try to use as an example, 1 of the guys has his back to the camera, another has half of his blocked by the other, and the 3rd is practically perpendicular to the camera. You couldn't get a good idea about the logo no matter what team it was if the were pictured like this.

I'd argue it's a perfect image to use - sports uniforms have to be evaluated in context.  Not how they look on a mannequin but how they look in a game. Good logos are identifiable and distinct at a distance and under less-than-ideal conditions, which is where the Predators' logo really shows its flaws.

i think you would have a hard time not identifying that as the predators logo. i dont see any flaws that he is talking about.

a shoulder patch that was some strange illuminati-inducing electric tower with the word NASHVILLE underneath it that had zero connection to the rest of the brand.

I take it you mean this logo?

(Never noticed the big "N" in it until now :P)
That's the tower built into Nashville Gaylord Sommet Bridgestone Arena.

Neither did I! I can't believe I missed that. 

 

BUT, it brings up two things 

 

1). The logo doesn't even look like that tower. They're WAY different

 

2). Why do they even have a tower on their arena in the first place? I'm calling a conspiracy on that one. It must be for mind control. Could it be for lightning strikes? Could it be used to control our minds into believing that Tennessee has a hockey team called the Predators that look like futuristic Power Rangers Vehicles on skates? We may never know. 

 

Makes you think.

If the Preds just stopped the piping where the clavicle and shoulderblade inserts end, instead of running it all the way down to the hem, and put the shoulder patch on both shoulders, I'd have no issues with their jerseys.

I always assumed that Nashville had a CN Tower, Sun Sphere kinda thing; it's really dumb to have a pointless tower from your brand new arena actually appear in your logo set. If it were a locally famous pointless thing, then that would be a horse of a different color.

Agreed.  The tower is so lazily rendered, the logo could represent any Nashville based company or corporation.  Replacing it with the fossilized skull was definitely the right move.  Surprised it didn't happen sooner.
