The double blue and orange can look really good, it’s the uniforms and look that ruin it. The name is pretty lame too, too bad it’s stuck, unless maybe a record long losing period is following their first ten years of greatness *crosses fingers* 

They just lost 2 of the top 10 players in the league, for nothing but mid level first round draft picks and a way past his prime cp3. They are going to the cellar and fast.

I’m really not buying the whole orange jersey story from a friend who works at a pro shop that got everything else wrong in his story.

Actually embracing what your region is known for!  What a new concept. </sarcasm>

 

I dig it.

 

Maybe they can get this dude to sing at the halftime show

Not at all saying I believe it’s real, but IF it were real, that wordmark would drive me nuts because the orange as the “a” reads as “Orlondo”.

The deadline for players two change their numbers is March 15th, so they were past the deadline to change it. It’s in this yahoo article:

If they really do have a deadline in place, this actually seems reasonable. For most players I could see where a switch wouldn’t be too big of a deal, but I can’t even imagine the amount of discounted Lebron inventory they would have laying around at this point.

Normally they just ask the player that’s switching to “buy” the dead stock of the old number. They probably did the same for Lebron but once Lebron saw the number he probably went nah I’m good. Probably a few tens of millions.

The gold stripe on the jersey side panel and shorts to simulate the crack in the Liberty Bell...genius.

It was meant to be a stand in logo until they came up with a real logo after the name was chosen. The name was chosen late but the team almost instantly became good so people bought the merchandise and changing the logo in the middle of all that success wouldn’t have been good. Now since they are rebuilding from nothing I suspect a change will be happening soon.

 

The Winnipeg Jets managed to get a last-minute logo that's decent enough. So even though you make a good point, I find it quite odd they'd go a full year with a placeholder. With that, I think they might tank for years and still not care that they don't have a real logo, if management is the same. But we'll see.

The Jets have a name that’s easy to visualize and had an overall direction with the RCAF motif. 

 

“Thunder” is much harder to work with, much less on short notice.

@Conrad. Anything you can tell us on the new statement jersey? 

 

Will it still be blue? Completely new or just a modification of the current icon?
