This is a perfect opportunity to switch the swords under the skull for crossbones. Raiders already have crossed swords, and the TB logo already has a sword.

I actually like the Bucs logo without the swords. It looks a lot more concise that way.

You just made me realize how low-key strange it is that the Buccaneers logo features crossed swords, on a flag being carried by a sword. It's totally unnecessary, and your solution makes so much more sense. I really can't believe that I've never thought about that before.

.......Why didn't the Bucs go with this in the first place? They don't call it the Skull and Swords, they call it the Skull and Crossbones.

Interesting. Seeing this makes me think the flag that I dislike could actually work. Maybe it was the duplicated swords that was cluttering the look. Hmm.

I seem to remember there being a story about them not using the crossbones due to some copyright issue? 

 

It was close to twenty years ago when I heard that, though.

The Buccaneers logo is apparently based on the one used by Calico Jack who was a pirate in the 18th century. So that's why there's swords instead of bones. I actually just looked into pirate flags and you would be surprised by how different they were than people think.

Huh that’s interesting. Maybe the bucs should base there design on this one, spacer.png

I prefer the swords to bones because a skull and crossbones makes me think of poison before pirates.

Yes most big cat nicknamed teams, professional and/or collegiate, will mainly utilize imagery depicting teeth. Initially, I was trying to prove a point by saying it’s dumb to remove something from a logo just because another team has it, but in case another team wants to be a-holes about the situation, it’s always a good idea to have backup plans.

 

 

Also, just because you want it to happen, doesn’t mean it will aka even though the Buccaneers logo is a pirate flag, it doesn’t need crossbones to get the point across. The swords serve their purpose well at doing so. Tampa Bay would be wise to keep them.

Watching the XFL this weekend and it hit me that if you changed LA's black to pewter, it's the Tampa Bay colors. Makes me think that more orange could actually work (was skeptical before).

My eyes may be deceiving me, but that looks damn near pewter-ish already.

I didn't think merging the creamsicle and SB eras was a viable option, but this has me rethinking that.

I think for a new logo, a nice in-between of the current and the Super Bowl flags would be great, like these:

Give the man his 1000 internets. Did you really know that, or did you cheat? Be honest. I ask because I've seen real gear heads lose their minds trying to find that little door.

Maybe it's time to use anthracite and drop pewter? It's a color Nike can keep consistent, looks mostly the same in any lighting and also resembles a cannon and cannon ball ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I agree that would be an awesome color for the Bucs.
