To the folks who don't like the Chargers in powder blue...

I get it, opinions are subjective. And you aren't wrong for yours. That being said? The love of the powder blue throwbacks never went away. It remained so strong that the Chargers merely switching to their inferior powder blue alternates as primaries was a huge deal last season.

All in all? The love for the powder blues has been going strong since AT LEAST the past twenty-five years. This was inevitable, and deep down? You all knew it was coming. Yes, the Chargers in navy could look nice. Yes, the Chargers in royal blue could look nice. Navy or royal blue never captured football fandom's attention like the powder blue did though. This was always going to happen. It was merely a question of "when" and not "if."
 

All in all? You are in the VAST miority of fans- be it Chargers fans, sports uniforms fans, or football fans. And there's nothing wrong with that. There's no crime against contrarian opinions, or diverging from the popular choice. That being said...the powder blue and athletic gold look is what the vast majority of fans have wanted for decades. I'm not saying you need to force yourselves to love it, but just make peace with the fact that the team inevitably gave way to popular demand.


I mean.... I do think Powder Blue can work and look nice, I just have to see how it's being used, cause the OG Powder Blue set has flaws that can be easily fixed IMO and a lot of those fixes were done on the two navy sets before the double fiasco. In fact, last years Home jersey was very close as to what I'd base a full-time Powder set around, with the Agency being replaced with a better font & the Navy outlines being dropped, along with the pant stripe being fixed. They could go with Yellow numbers ala the Color Rush and 85-87 set, but white also looks fine.

Looks like a pharmaceutical company that jacks up the price of livesaving drugs by 400%

The LA rams logo is ok, I don't like how the A is "tucked" into the horn, maybe if they give it a little room to the left. I don't mind the Minimal logo ram.

I'm sure it has been pointed out somewhere, but really reminds me of the new microsoft edge logo:

I know that it was said earlier that this new logo looks like the old Internet explorer logo, but I think it looks more like a combination of the Internet explorer logo and the Mozilla Firefox logo, especially with the introduction of the light orange color into the rams horn. I guess the design team tried to bring back old and forgotten web browsers.

More original thinkers. 
 

The Chargers need their own thread, mods.

It's not as bad as the endless "looks like X did Y" comments that litter up every thread.

Personally think this was the better new logo of the two LA teams and someone wanted to make a thread about this.... here it is.

Finally found a good pic of the Chargers white powder throwback.

Minor thing buts it’s bugged me that the helmet and pants have the same template for the bolt and the shoulders are different.

I was just scrolling through Instagram and it struck me how the new logo did not whatsoever evoke "Rams" or even "a ram" at small scale

...and?

 

That criticism could be leveled at a whole lot of baseball logos too.  Unless you want to go the NBA route and insist they include a ball in every logo.

 

What surprises me, in a good way, is how clearly the "LA" reads at that small size.  Makes me appreciate the logo more.

What's got to be especially galling to San Diegans is that the Spanos family finally started listening after they left town.

 

Perhaps they've been humbled by moving to a market that doesn't care about them; they took having a strong fanbase for granted and now realize they need to occasionally cater to those fans.

I mean, the same can be said about every sports logo that doesn’t include equipment.

Should have just made a new set based on the color rush.

all these new minimalist designs are about as soul crushing as modern architecture


Difference of opinion there. 
 

Bauhaus can be quite up lifting. 
 

It has a spirit of transparency and openness. It doesn’t overwhelm the people who fill the space. Everything is clear, naturally illuminated, and human in scale.
 

Minimalist designs at their best do the same thing, give space for the players to be individuals and emphasize their own speed and power without distraction.

I don’t necessarily agree with this. There’s a very identifiable look for different pro sports. For football, logos with easily identifiable, bold key lines like the Cardinals, Seahawks or old rams logo. That’s why the fake, released by the owner ram a while back got flack. Because it DID look like a bank logo instead of a football logo

This was only "inevitable" due to sheer spite. The Spanos family spent decades ignoring the demand for powder blue in San Diego while forcing their favorite color instead (navy). Bringing back powder blue full-time now is just a petty excuse to lord it over their former fanbase. If the team was still in San Diego, powder blue would still be relegated to alternates and throwbacks only.

Both logos look like they'd be used by a fan blog or podcast covering the team, not the actual team themselves.

Clearly? It reads as “LCA” at that size.

But what makes any of those a "football" logo, aside from the fact that you're familiar with them and have long associated those logos with professional sports teams?

I think it's one of those things that is framed by either what you want to see or what your eye is trained to look at (or something). I don't see the crescent moon (I get the part of the logo that is a crescent moon, but my eye doesn't seen ONLY the moon, I see the whole horn), nor do I see that as LCA, or CLA, or anything other than LA with a horn.

 

You aren't wrong, but we don't all see it that way.
