Washington NFL Franchise Retires Name and Logo

Recommended Posts

Eh, I'm not feeling that wolf logo. It's just too detailed for my tastes; looks like some of the detail could be muddled at small sizes and when blurred. In an era where everyone is designing around social media, excessively-detailed logos are going the way of the dodo.

 

The Eagles' logo is detailed, but not complex. All of the features are distinguishable even when blurry. I lose some of the fur detail when blurring the Wolves logo.

It really is unfortunate that the best Wolves logo is currently being used in Minnesota-

Why is that unfortunate? If they're the only big 4 team to be named after wolves, isn't that to be expected? Or do you mean that this logo isn't that great, so it's unfortunate that it's the best one out there right now?

In the sense that Washington would have to compete with that and try to come up with something even better. I personally view the Timberwolves logo as one of the best in the Big 4.

Man, wouldn’t it just be absolutely wild if they put stripes on the helmet next season? It’s just something we haven’t seen for this team. That’d be some crazy stuff I’d like to see!

There have been articles stating that the process would/could take 18 months. Going back to July of this year. 

 

It also allows for the possibility of new ownership to have a say in the process.

 I think this in-division logo "matchup" shows the potential of Wolves.

What's the significance of "Wolves" (or even "Red Wolves") to Washington DC? Other than alliteration of course.

Red wolves are native to the region.

This is probably been asked already, but how would you guys feel about them just putting the roundel logo on their burgundy helmets in lieu of numbers?

The W sure but not the whole roundel

I’d be okay with it if it had a “floating” white border.

That logo is a piece of crap that they seem to have had done off Fiverr, so I'd feel pretty bad about it.

I know the overall plan is to keep burgundy and gold, but the military color palette with the W is not terrible.
