The Friar and Conquistador from the city's bicentennial logo will adorn the midfield circle for Admirals games at San Diego Stadium.

For the '69 season, the Admirals will wear a patch of the 200th Anniversary logo on the left sleeve of their jerseys.

The new logo looks good, but I can't help but see NY instead of NJ. I honestly would be happy with a slight modernization of their old logo, it's one of my personal favorites from the league.

I'd make the angle of that serif at the top of the J parallel to the diagonal stroke of the N for better flow. Also, make your negative space more consistent; for instance, right now, it looks like the negative space between the bottom of the left leg of the N and the bottom of the J is thinner than the negative space between the top of the left leg of the N and the top of the J.

The J is too big compared to the N, I’d make them the same size

I tried shrinking my view of it way down. The diagonal of the N is kind of thin, which I think is part of what is making the J look so big. The thing is, if you thicken the diagonal, you change the angle, thus changing the J serif (I know it's a crossbar and not a serif but you know what I mean). I don't have a hard-and-fast solution, but I'd experiment some more with thicknesses and angles.

Here's another approach. Would a name change be a good idea? Or move the team?

Go lower case like the New York Giants logo and you’ve got more room and some symmetry options with a rounded ‘n.’

Quick and dirty:

I actually had a very similar idea except that the stem of the j would be in the n rather than the tail, which kinda ties it to the original logo too. Kinda like this:

Just another option, I guess.

I don’t like how the N has a sharp angle but the J doesn’t, I’d also make it much curvier like many abstract 70s logos, including making the dot circular
