To be fair, that's a rather crude rendering of the original version of the "Pat Patriot" logo that  Boston Globe cartoonist Phil Bissell created in 1960.

By the time the Patriots' so-called "Flying Elvis" logo was being developed, the team was using this version of "Pat Patriot...

Yes, it was an overly-detailed logo that was difficult to reproduce with precision at small sizes, but it is clearly more refined than the brain-addled rendition of the mark you've cited.

Ah, my mistake. The official graphics still look dreadful, in a way that no modernization will fix.

Mark Crosby's come about as close to anyone I know of to getting a modernization of "Pat Patriot" done right.

It’s good, but I don’t like it as much as proto-Flying Elvis. Heck, the Adam Walsh update of it is lovely:

But back to the LA Rams, I’d go for something more Art Nouveau.

That’s so much better than Elvis. Should be their logo.

Could this actually be real? Remember a poster said he saw it and his discription was that is had a modern look to it and that the horn looked like an @...

Interesting...

 I kinda like it, but don't think that could really be it.  First, it doesn't look like an athletic logo, specifically (didn't stop the Dolphins, I know) and I'd expect a new logo to incorporate a monogram in some way.

 

Of course, as I always say, I've been wrong before.

I’d still like to see them do something with this logo

something about it just has that art deco feel that rounded font was doing. I’d love to see a modernized version of this

This looks way more Wyoming or Montana than Los Angeles to me.

If it were a bull it would be a great logo for Merrill Lynch. That's the vibe I get from it.

To each their own. I think Mark Crosby's update of "Pat Patriot" is vastly superior to the "proto-Flying Elvis", which looks like the branding for a mid-1970s credit union. As for Adam Walsh's update, while certainly an improvement on the "proto-Flying Elvis", I wouldn't say it's better than Mark Crosby's "Pat Patriot" update.

Let's hope that the Rams' new branding is considerably better looking than that. In my opinion, that looks like something an NAIA college athletic department would trot out.
