Tampa Bay Buccaneers Getting New Logo, Helmet & Uniforms


TampaBayRays

Recommended Posts

I really hope a Bucs thread gets started so all the talk doesn't get burried in this thread once something is actually unveiled.

Anyway I think going to the practice numbers would count as a drastic change, so a font change would probably be more subtle. I guess the sleeve logos will be replaced, and probably the wordmark under the collar.

Maybe they'll lose one of the outline colors from the numbers, but that wouldn't really be necessary. They're about the only team that can pull off having all those outlines.

The helmet will probably have the same base color but with a chrome-red facemask and the new logo. I can't see them going to either a matte finish or a chromed-out pewter.

Ok, I've been trying to find it, but to no avail, but remember when the guy who worked for the designing company or whatever it was was describing the new logos but the Buccs were included in that? He said of the logos, iirc "One is less caricature, one's more modern, one's what changed, and one is wtf"

We always attributed it to the three teams that unveiled last off season and concluded that the Buccs would be the what changed one.

Looking back, I don't think that fits. I think the poster was describing the logos like this:

Less Caricature: Miami. Everyone thought it was the etf one because they were so married to the helmet wearing Dolphin, but Miami opted for less cartoony/more corporate.

The modernization - Definitely Jacksonville. The old logo immediately looked outdated when the new one debuted.

The what changed - Minnesota. Some people don't even know they changed their logo.

So that leaves us with... The wtf.

I'm not sure we're fully bracing ourselves for what's about to be unveiled Thursday.

Miami-less caricature

Minnesota-modernized (the matte & black mask, sail #s show changes and are noticeable)

Jacksonville-wtf x10

what's changed-Tampa?

To be fair, they said "enhanced", not revised. Probably something along the lines of what Minnesota did with their Norseman logo.

The "chrome grill" thing, though...still can't get past that.

No because that poster was ONLY talking about logos, not the overall uniform design

The hinting poster also said that he had to doube-check to to make sure there were actual changes for the Bucs, because he saw the "new" logo and thought it was identical to the previous one, from what I remember. But it was also said that the Bucs never made the switch in that case. If the new logo really was nearly identical to the previous one, I doubt they'd have a big press conference to unveil it.

As long as we're guessing...

Sapp said chrome grill, not chrome helmet. Obviously he was told it was OK to give that away, so I'm guessing its only the facemask (hard to imagine how that's not gonna be ugly) and not the helmet.

My guess... helmet stays pewter, add trendy/ugly mask, tweaked logo, drop the cuffs and collars, add a propietary font. There you go.

And really, how can they even "enhance" their current logo? What they have now is great first of all, but second off it was designed in 1996/7. It doesn't have the same issues that other updated logos like the Cardinals, Seahawks, and Falcons had where those logos were basically originally drawn in crayon by cavemen.

Nope. I don't like this. NOT. ONE. BIT.

Some sweet concepts from reddit users:

The last one with a chrome orange facemask would be my favorite

Also, while we're making guesses, mine is that the new logo will be a pirate ship.

all of those will look dated in less than 5 years, and look worse than what they have now, and they already do have a pirate ship logo

I think they can update their logo a little bit. Some of the shading techniques used look a bit outdated and kinda 90s.

Not necessarily chrome but a pewter brushed metal mask could look really cool, especially on a white lid. With that being said their current helmet is just fine and i hope they don't downgrade.
