In the continuing string of AF2 expansion teams, the Rio Grande Valley franchise has unveiled its new logo and nickname: the Dorados. The following is from af2.com:

"The word Dorados has several meanings to its name. The Spanish word means ?the golden ones? and/or ?the chosen ones,? and the name was given to the select cavalry that served under Pancho Villa during the Mexican Revolution.

"A Dorado is also a name of a Central and South American fish known by anglers as one of the fiercest fish to catch (nicknamed the River Tiger), and as a term used in references to gold located in historic ancient Mexican ruins.

"The logo, designed by GLS Graphics out of Lubbock, Texas, features a fictitious Dorado, with gold armor, holding a football. Primary team colors will consist of navy, gold, and cardinal."

Mmmmmmmmm......Dorados.  The Cool Ranch ones are the best.

Alright, alright, bad joke.  This logo isn't too bad.  It's interesting that the warrior seems to be a lefty.  The color choices are very good.  They're certainly ahead of their CHL counterparts the RGV Killer Bees with respect to color and logos.

Nitroseed beat me to it.  I saw the logo tonight and thought I might get it in first but your too quick for me.  Here's a larger version of the logo on my site.   cut & paste.

Nice Job Nitro, being on top of this.  I'm waiting for the new coyotes logo now.

I just wonder what part of that logo will end up on the helmet. Hopefully not the "A" from the typeface.

I'm taking a stab and guessing they are going to go with a gold helmet with a decal that attempts to replicate the effect of having the elaborate plumage found on the warrior's headgear.

Anyone remember El Dorado from the ethnically diverse and politically correct version of the Super Friends? Maybe they could yank him out of the cartoon mothballs and have him be a mascot or something  :P

In all seriousness, however, does anyone have a better copy of the logo? or any idea what the helmets of this, and the other new AF2 teams, will look like?
