Vancouver's new logo

Post by PurplePrideTrumpet on Tue Jun 08, 2010 12:30 pm

Unveiled today.
A little plain, but I like it better than the old one:


Portland's comes out at halftime of the USA-England match Saturday.

It is definitely an upgrade over the old one... I mean at least it got out of a 1995 time warp unlike some other teams, ahem...

I would love love love it if they changed to the unofficial snake logo, although it would look like they were copying the Philadelphia Union (really it's the other way around).

I would settle for making the stripes and the star background the right colors for how they appear on the flag...

Yeah, the nautical stars don't really make sense... And the snake logo is definitely very much used (I know it was a big debate/snafu about whether Nike had copyright on the snake logo or not) Maybe we should honor Ben Franklin's other famous love and put a wild turkey on the logo...

Hahahaha, I'm really shocked that wasn't my intended allusion... (Besides Wild Turkey was always more of R54s poison of choice.)

I will say, however, that after waking up to a large tom screaming at me through a sliding glass door that maybe these birds are terrifying enough to be our natural symbol (I mean Eagles mainly eat detritus, how noble is that?)

The kit is out too.


If you ignore the good looks that apparently run in the Nash family and concentrate on the design you will note that it is pretty nice, especially considering some of the things adidas has come out with lately.
