Logos are important. They represent the team. And in some cases (The Cowboy's Star; the Yankees NY) they can become iconic and represent something more than just the franchise.
Here, in no particular order, are some of the best and worst. Rate them and write back with some of your own.
Washington State Cougars
Rochester Red Wings
Nevada Wolf Pack
Old New England Patriots Logo
A lot of people hate this old one. I love it. A bad-ass Patriot ready to rumble. Awesome.
Also, love the fact that this was red, white and blue. No stupid silver (how is silver a patriot color?) to help sell jerseys. Very 70s. Very cool.
Another discontinued one. Look at this grizzled dude. Needs a shave. Angry. Totally cool.
Army Black Knights
Great name. Great logo. Nothing else to say. I mean, check it out. He's got a cape.
New Orleans Voodoo
Boston Red Sox
Richmond Flying Squirrel
I'm tired of cats names in college sports. How many Wildcats or Tigers names are there. Come on, be more imaginative. That said, the simple paw print is elegant and cool. And of course, major cool for making it a Mexican wrestling mask.
Old St Louis Browns
Old New York Nets
Lakeland Flying Tigers
Old Kansas City Chief
Can't see why they got rid of this one? Who wouldn't want their logo to be a giant Indian running across a Midwest map with a tiny loincloth with KC on it?
And that's it for now. Suggest some of your faves and worst sport logos.
