Putting pedantics aside, to the broader point: there’s 10 NYC professional sports teams in five leagues. I think the city is represented well. I think people know New York exists. The team that has historically emphasized its nickname (it’s not a N-E-W-Y-O-R-K! chant) should have a more creative logo based on that nickname than a fairly boring wordmark.

An overly detailed late 90s/early 2000s style illustration of a jet isn’t exactly becoming of a team with the history and locale of the Jets. That they’re ditching the uniforms that put the team, AFL, and Super Bowl itself on the map so they can have some over-designed Nike clownsuit with unnecessary colours is bad enough. 

 

No need to add a cartoony aggressive jet logo on top of it.

This is why I've been hating on this upcoming change. Say what you will about the logo looking like a rugby ball but that logo and jersey (thought not exactly the same style) are the Jets.

 

I didn't ask for an entire re-branding. I don't want a new helmet. I don't want a new jersey design. I don't want a new logo. All I just wanted was a lighter shade of green dammit!

Pretty rich coming from the guy that always gets annoyed and condescending when anyone disagrees with him. Don’t want people getting snippy in threads maybe model that behavior yourself, Mr. Moderator.

 

I was just expressing an opinion, I don’t really care what the Jets look like, or to continue arguing the point. I’ve said my piece.

Hehe there’s a lot of pent up anger here.

This is a thread about the New York Jets and their new uniforms. We all care to some degree.

Here is a mock up I did real quick of what the new logo may be.

I feel your pain. I would have been very happy if they just switched to kelly green, fixed the shoulder stripes, and tweaked the logo so the outside oval went back to a football shape like it was in the 60's and make the inside football look more like an NFL football and not a rugby ball. But this is the Jets we are talking about so I have a very bad feeling about the both the new logo and uniforms.

“That they’re ditching the uniforms that put the team, AFL, and Super Bowl itself on the map”

 

probably time to distance themselves from that farce.  game was fixed

 

i love seeing people complain about change...as though it ever pays attention and doesnt happen.  Jets need overhaul.  have the worst uniforms in the league and have for a long time.  this is the NFL. NOT the AFL anymore.

They trying to cater to the new New York, full of Hipsters, Starbucks, enviromental friendly ideologies. The 2019 Jets (and their logo) will be eco-friendly 💚

The Jets didn’t need to complicate this: 

- Lighten the green a touch 

- Fix the shoulder stripes 

- Add matching stripes to the green socks 

- Use this as the helmet logo (with the new, lighter green):New_york_jets_alternate_logo.gif

Done and done.

Removing the NY from the background and tacking the full NEW YORK wordmark above the JETS wordmark can’t be the only thing they’re doing to update that logo, can it? 

 

The Jets have one of the most boring logos in the league (even if it has history) IMO. There are about a billion things they could do that would be an improvement. Actually making it MORE boring would be... A very good representation of what the Jets are as an entire organization are. 

 

That actually seems like like a decent slogan for them. 

 

The New York Jets: They can’t really be this bad, can they?

I certainly hope Jamal Adams wouldn’t react that strongly for that logo.

 

They did for the Browns...

I'd say they reacted to the 1026 possible combos more than the uniforms themselves...

It says 2019 Branding on the logo on the table so apparently it’s real. What a huge let down.

Or it's a pretty crap Photoshop. Just remember all the distractions that Jacksonville and Tennessee sent out last year. It could be valid or it could be a way to keep us talking about it.
