Underrated Logos that need more recognition

Maybe Memphis would give Grizzlies back to Vancouver and take on the Bobcats.

/sarcasm

Though more fans DID show up to Grizzlies games in Vancouver than the number of Memphis Grizzlies fans now.....

That's because there actually are no grizzlies in Tennessee. :)

You never heard the Ballad of Davy Crockett?

"Born in the hills of Tennessee...kilt his first bear when he was only three!"

Yeah, but we have brown bears and black bears, not grizzly bears. Grizzlies are strictly in the North

And the "hills of Tennessee" are the east. There are three regions of Tennessee: West, Middle, and East. The West is flat, where Memphis is, the Central is a plateau between West and East, where Nashville is, and once you get to the East, it keeps on getting bumpier until you get to the Smoky Mountains, where Knoxville and Chattanooga are.

Do we really have to start this?

How many Raptors are in Toronto?

How many Tigers and Lions are in Detroit? (2 of each at the Detroit zoo, actually :upside: )

Are there any Buccaneers roaming the waters of Tampa Bay or Pirates sailing the Allegheny River?

and Who is currently the king of Los Angeles?

Kobe.

Vancouver Grizzlies. It was hardly ever seen but...

it did influence that sweet trim on the jersey.

Also this one, still looks great with the Memphis colors...lgge0xyf2taxz9c4kfms8uuie.gif

Edit: Wow just found this:

The Native American influenced logo would look real nice on a plain grey or black t-shirt
It should have been at center court.

As a student of archaeology courses, I know that there is no way in hell that there were any kind of bears in Ancient Egypt, but it'd be interesting to see something similar done in Memphis with hieroglyph-style art. It's probably look terrible in the current Grizzlies' colors (in fact, it'd be terrible regardless of color scheme), but it would definitely be interesting.

Something like this, utilizing a sphinx position?

How about this Blue Jays logo? (Sorry, I'm not sure of how to post pictures).http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/98256e6rrugp88puehfylgn2k

I think its terrible. The one they have now is perfect.

It wasn't as bad as the two that came after:

The second one really isn't a bad logo. Just not good for Toronto.

I still maintain that those are stupid names. They only get a pass because they're "historic."

Also, any name chosen merely because it sounds "intimidating" is stupid. Nobody in their right mind is intimidated by the nickname of a sports team.

I don't know about pirates on the Alleghney River or buccaneers around Tampa... BUT there are a band of pirates roaming the Mighty Saskatchewan...
