Tampa Bay Buccaneers Getting New Logo, Helmet & Uniforms

Recommended Posts

I'm also just quoting this so it doesn't get buried:

A very short while ago

I can still remember when the Buccaneers would make me smile

And I knew if I had my chance that I could redesign their pants

And maybe fans would be happy for awhile

But February made me shiver

With every rumor they'd deliver

Strange helmet on the door step...I couldn't shake it's bad rep

I can't remember if I cried when I saw their unis got Nike-fied

Something broke me deep inside the day...Bucs unis...died

So bye, bye Quality Design

Took the bevel to new levels and many souls cried

And the good old red and pewter look that they denied

For numbers that are chrome-ified

For numbers that are chrome-ified

Did you make a logo site and do you have faith in Philip Knight?

If Nike tells us so

Now do you believe in cut-and-paste with the XFL and toxic waste?

And can you teach me how to meet deadlines real slow?

Well I know that you're in love with matte

I saw the Vikings helmet not quite fall flat

You both made the purple look less blue

And I dug those purply hues

I was a lonely liker of the Bucs

With their colors rad and their old coach Chuck

But "God :censored: ing damn," I shouted, "these :censored: ing suck"

The day Bucs Unis Died

*chorus*

Now for 17 years this look had been real swell

Saving the franchise from creamsicle hell

But that's now how it used to be

When Dungy was praising Shaun E. King before Chucky hijacked his winning team

And they both now haunt my TV

And while our heads were looking down, the Glazers shopped their look around

Big investment with no return

All these jerseys should be burned

And while Goodell re-wrote a book of rules, Nike went to work with Satan's tools and the NFL played us all for fools

The day the Bucs Unis Died.

*chorus*

Hocus Pocus and a plague of locusts please descend upon the look that broke us

After the Jags we're falling fast

We landed hard upon the painted grass

Mike Glennon fumbled a forward pass, Darrelle Revis on the sidelines counting cash

The halftime air had scents of doom as their new jerseys entered the locker room

Random swatches on their pants, clock numbers counted their last chance

As Nike tried to rape the field

The Bucs fans refused to yield

Piss on the rotten NFL shield today Bucs Unis Died

*chorus*

And there we all were in the CCSLC

Generations of aesthetics geeks

With no patience left to start again

So Licht Be Nimble, Licht Be Quick

Fighting staph infections and Lovie Smith

Firing everyone is just a means to an end

As I watched the unveil take center stage

My hands were clenched in fists of rage

No designer ever lured to hell could design such a turd

As the uniforms freshly ate the flames

A fireball rose over Raymond James

Here we are left to take the blame the day the Bucs Unis Died

*chorus

I met a fan who had season tix and I asked what he thought of this

He simply frowned and turned away

I went down to the sacred store where once hung the jerseys I did adore

But the man there said the jerseys went away

And in the streets the children screamed

It's the XFL look of their dreams

Not a word was spoken

Adults hearts all were broken

Red and pewter I admired most

Now are ketchup mustard and burnt toast

I'm glad as hell I don't live on the coast today, the Bucs Unis Died.

So bye, bye Quality Design

Took the bevel to new levels and many souls cried

And the good old red and pewter look that they denied

For numbers that are chrome-ified

For numbers that are chrome-ified

The old uniforms are becoming overrated. Pewter was left off the jerseys entirely and orange was marginalized and only served to muddle the uniform. The color balance on the new uniforms is a huge improvement.

I just woke up and saw the new Bucs uni.

Now I'm going back to bed after a stop in the bathroom.

By the way CS85 your song made my morning. Cheers.

Just sayin'...

Of course Arizona's font is better.

Nailed it.

Hey, am I wrong, or did they just cut and paste the same blocky pants stripe they gave the jags?

It's pretty close. Somebody at Nike likes this look and I can't explain why.

In typical Nike fashion...

Custom name and number fonts feature beveled edges inspired by historical Buccaneer blade carvings, echoing the modern industrial design inspiration. The team's white jerseys sport pewter sleeves and shoulders with red numbers, while the red jerseys also feature pewter sleeves and shoulders but with white numbers on the body and red numbers on the shoulders-- adding an extra element of energy to the evolved Buccaneer identity.

The team's secondary logo, a powerful wooden ship fueled by wind-filled sails, is similarly refined to convey the Bucs' relentless energy. The redesigned wooden ship is positioned on the right shoulder and the abbreviated "BUCS" moniker on the left. The enhanced flag is proudly displayed on both the right and left hip of the pant.

I laughed so hard reading this. The Bucs relentless energy?

And ship logo on one sleeve and moniker on the other? Flag logo on the pants? Disgusting. I hate logos anywhere but the sleeves, and even then i don't like them often.

I 2nd the motion for early POTY nomination and for single post induction into the Gold Mine with an amendment to include the photo of the new jersey with the post.

Whats the chances they make orange the primary and have red or pewter as the 3rd?

Zero, at least this year. They've already announced that they only have two jerseys and that the home jersey is red with a pewter yoke.

Get a different numeral font, put the new ship on both sleeves, and ditch the flag logo on the pants; i could POSSIBLY get use to it.

I have seen exactly three opinions out of all of the outlets that was anything other than these are horrible, and those were from people on facebook who also said they were "fire." Did they not have any outside opinions before they settled on this??

I still trying to decipher as to why Tampa Bay decided to go with calculator styled numbers. . . . Why couldn't they have thought along the lines of designing the uniforms elements around actual buccaneers.
