Return of Old Logos

Recommended Posts

After watching the Giants' Color Rush throwbacks and mulling the (hopeful) return of blue and gold for the LA Rams, I got to thinking of the return to old logos. A few come to mind as of the past 15-20 years. And, sure, there are many more that could have been used as an example (ie- Islanders, Sabres, Blue Jays, Hawks, Kings, etc) ...

But, what other teams are there in the Big 4 that you would like to see a return to a previous logo as their main logo?

 

Here are a few I'd love to see, but I would love to see what many of you have in mind as well ...

Patriots return to Pat Patriot. I prefer the last incarnation of the uniforms with red facemask, red pants and larger logo.

That sleek Jets logo is so much better than what they used before and since.  I've never understood the love for the oval, other than nostalgia.  I'd also like to see the Dolphins go back, but without the navy.

Here are the NFL logo changes. I chose the ones that haven't been posted yet and/or received major changes (for example: the Jaguars' 2013 logo change received very minor changes, barely noticeable.)

The jags I think is way different, the change is bad and to me it makes the team look weaker and loses its appeal.

The colors changed, as well as the design of the uniform, but the logo itself had little change.

The logo itself changed somewhat drastically, especially when compared to the buccaneers logo (which you included).. The chargers logo in your set didn't change at all other than color.. I'd put the Jaguars logo in the same category as the Seahawks logo in terms of amount of change..

The old Miami Heat logo is much better than the current. 

 

The new one looks like Clip-Art.

Not trying to be a stickler here, but that Cavs logo was from the 80s. They used this logo, from the 90s, before they got their "current" logo(and that itself was introduced when Lebron first came back and had a metallic gold and a darker red, and then they switched to the current wine and gold logo).

I hope the Pistons and Rockets go more in the direction of what they had previously. Both are becoming super generic. And the Mavericks really need to have a good logo for once.

Losing the horse logo was a terrible idea. It looks great in RWB.

I like the newer logo and going back to the 1998 uniforms with this logo would be a good look.

i had a quick look through the NFL and NBA and these are the only 2 logos i see that would be an actual improvement going backwards. in most cases, you're just going from one bad logo to another and it's a push. most teams don't need to go back, they need a new logo thats actually good and have never had a good one to begin with

The Knicks logo should have the black again. It made the logo pop out more.

I'd also like to see the Knicks Subway Token logo get used more often. I feel it's an underrated alternative logo.

I don't think the old Seahawks logo should come back, the new one is vastly superior. What if we put the old colors on the current logo, would that work?

What's interesting about thist post is that the four logos you want to return to were actually new logos that took the place of the current logos, which are the originals.  What's old is new again, and what's new is old again.

Well, I just used those as examples. 

 

The last bar were the logos I want to see return.
