Well it's certainly unique. Although, I think it's kind of weird to consider an entire team to be one singular creature. Krakens probably would have been an easier sell for some people.


Kraken is a plural noun.

I dig the logos, and the jerseys look alright. The number outline of the blue jerseys probably should've been red, but it's solid.

 

There is no Krakens. It's sheep, fish and kraken.

The blue of the jersey bleeding into the negative space of the S and becoming the "testicle" is what makes the blue work so incredibly well for me.  

That's a ballsy thing to say.

according to the mothership, the script was always the primary.

According to the mothership, George W is still president, preceded by Michael Dukakis.  Let's all pick Michael Dukakis' best logos!

 

(OK, I'll stop now - couldn't resist one more shot at an easy target.)

I know, I’ve practically pleaded with Chris to let me help fix some of the worst errors.  Oh, well. 
 

Still, primary logo designations from the past decade are one of the things the site is really good on.

“Krakens” is an acceptable alternate, according to some sources.  But “kraken” is also plural.

Just saw it. However, Krakens sounds wrong to me; acceptable or not.

For those who love the name "Kraken" -- Would you feel the same about the name if the current Washington or Edmonton football teams adopted Kraken as their mascot?

 

I mean, same thing, right?

Are you (still not) aware of the situation in Washington regarding their football team – for the past 40 years? Textbook case of apples-and-oranges comparison intended?

Because a silly name like Kraken doesn't belong in pro football, but for hockey it's ok?

You think it's a silly name. Other people love it. Who's right?

It’s sack-religious to not like that use of negative space.

Names like Kraken, Express, even Iron or any other plural nouns like that would all be a little weird to see in the NFL and even CFL. However, I wouldn’t mind either Edmonton or Washington choosing a name like those. It’s weird to see it as common in leagues like MLS, NBA, and now NHL, but nowhere in the MLB & NFL.

Anyone know if Fanatics flex-fit sizes are similar to New Era's 3930s?  I'm a S/M in the 3930 and want to get the flex version of that hat, but I've never owned a Fanatics-branded product.

I'm not going to explain context to people who willfully choose not to understand.

Clearly since they are both seaports.

Oh, wait...

You mean a kraken can't inhabit the Potomac?
