Default The Lions new logo

I just saw it for the first time today. Since there has been some discussion from time to time on the Mane about the Broncos logo change (1997), I thought it might be worth bringing up.

www.detroitlions.com

For me, I like the change. The old Lions logo looked too weak. At least this one has some teeth and the lettering is tougher...now, if only the team was worth a poo!

Looks alright. The lions really did need some sort of change though.
You should change everything after an 0-16 season...

They could have the most intimidating Lion there is...this specimen, for instance:



and they'd still be the Detroit Stinkin' Lions...

It looks alright. Pretty subtle compared to other revamps of the past.

The lion looked ok but the lettering looked like an Arena league or soccer product.

Ya know, I am a huge fan of our new logo and I really like what the Bucs did to rid themselves of the gay pirate. But I sorta like the Pats old logo better than the new. JMHO.

I always forget about how awful that old Bucs logo is. I'm trying to come up with something else to describe it, but "gay pirate" is the only proper description.

They needed a face lift...this is touch-up. New colors and logo have been way over due for this franchise.

I'll take the old logos over the new ones anyday of the week. I still hate what they did to the Broncos logo to this day.

Honestly though, I see little change in the Lions logo....not enough to matter really

I don't find the new logo all that intimidating.

Rep ... I love uniforms, colors, logos ....

My favorites are the LSU Tigers with PURPLE jerseys ...

The stupid CHargers with the OLD-school powder blue and yellow ...

And the Cleveland Browns with brown jerseys, orange helmets and ORANGE PANTS ... they've abandoined the orange pants, which is too bad ...

Broncos need to go back to the D with the white horse rearing up through it. I've always contended that Bowlen got rid of that logo because he was trying to get the new stadium deal done. Not knowing if he was gonna have to sell the team to a buyer who would move the Broncos, he opted for a logo without the "D".

PUT THE "D" BACK BOWLEN, YOU FREAKING LUSH!!

Wow, a thought provoking theory ....

I don't agree with it, but I love that kinda "outside the box" thinking ...

Honestly, I've always thought this. The last thing that was wrong with the Broncos old unis was the D and the horse. The only thing the Broncos really needed to change was the shade of coloring (dark navy blue with a darker orange reminiscent of the Bears colors).

If you go back and watch the games in 1995 where the Broncos had their old unis but the coaching staff wore garments with the new colors, you'll see that Bowlen was considering a simple color change.

This was right in the middle of Bowlen lobbying Denver for a new stadium. Then the next thing you know, this new logo appears with the new colors and the "D" is gone...

I kept thinking to myself "The sumbiatch took away the D just to show people that he could sell the team and the new logo is generic enough to work!"

The new logo is a generic pile of poop.

I like the old Jets and Bills logos and prefer our old D but I like the old school AFL logos.

They only change them to generate merch sales.

The "gay pirate" was at least orange. Those old Buc orange jersey's were sweet. Their new logo may be better, but anyone who perfers pewter over orange really needs to have their head examined.
