Toronto jays???

I don't know if anybody has heard about this but apparently Paul Godfrey is going to get the team a new logo, new uniforms and take out the Blue in their name thus making them the Toronto Jays.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  It's like changing the name of the Leafs to the Toronto Leafs.  It just doesn't make any sense.

There was an article about this in the Free Press on Thurs. or Fri. I don't know if there is any truth to a rumour, but the article stressed that this was not a formal announcement nor did it have any backing from front office. It stressed that this was speculation on the fact that the Blue Jays are doing a concept overhaul for next year. It's a possibility, but we'll have to wait and see...

Chris, is what I've said correct?

Complete overhaul: TRUE

New nickname: FALSE

I have not seen the logo, but I was talking with some buddies of mine who have seen it and said it is terrible.  It is going in a complete opposite direction from team tradition.

let's see how stupid sounding these names would be:

Winnipeg Bombers

Toronto Leafs

Boston Sox

Chicago Sox

Toronto Jays

Syracuse Men

i could go on, but you can see how dumb these 'colorless' names sound when you say each one out loud.

Wow. That would be the day.

You can't take the Blue out of the Bomber, and they shouldn't (and apparently won't) take the Blue out of the Jay.

If I would nitpick Discrimihater's comment, Maple (as in the Leafs) isn't exactly a colour reference, but I won't nitpick and thus won't mention it.  :D

This is ot, but does anyone know if there is a font from a website or something for the maple leafs' letters other than Roger's resources?

Someone posted awhile ago that it was a font called "Raiders" IIRC

I posted that....

Thats what I use, and it seems the come close to it. I dont kno if it IS it, but, eh....

EDIT: In Baseball Weekly, it has just a sentence that Blue Jays reportedly asked MLB for permission to change their uniforms and name to "The Jays"

I've heard they're dropping "Blue" cos they intend to change the colors to gun-silver, black and red.

At least discarding the maple leaf will ease the transition when the club moves to Portland.  **chortle**

Moving to Portland? heh   :P

I am expecting this to be a Devil Rays-esque change where the 'blue' is not officially dropped but it's not on uniforms, or anything.

Either way, this will suck, the team colours will be Blue, Gunmetal Silver, and Black.... with an all-black uniform.

I am really dissapointed with my team, extremely dissapointed.  And I am saddened that these teams never consult their fans with these changes, it's as if we dont matter at all.

Oh, I bet they run focus groups where they assemble a bunch of morons to tell them which color scheme looks best: 1. black and silver; 2. black and red; 3. black, silver and red; 4. black and teal; or 5. black, silver and teal.
