The second should be the full cat.The Panthers’ full cat looks stupid, the Jags’ full cat looks meh, the Bengals full cat looks okay. Bubbles needs to be cooked down into something that expresses the fierceness and regality of a lion. Right now he looks like a kitten batting at some string.*edited because I be typing too fast.

But if this were 50 odd years ago, I might think that’s a good idea–the whole lion/king of the jungle/regal implication.As others have said, I’m cautiously optimistic–these are the Lions we’re talking about, but they appear to rightfully be in full “kiss the fans’ ass” mode. Anything they do will be fairly minor, so as not to give us another reason to hate them. I’d say black will almost surely disappear, and I also hope they lighten the blue again. I’m supportive of a slight tweak to Bubbles, but nervous because I think that’s where the most damage can be done.

Copperplate would be a disaster.Sorry, I can’t jump on that bandwagon. While it shouldn’t run rampant, Copperplate does have its applications. I think it’s foolish, (and perhaps the in-crowd’s party line right now) to summarily poo-poo an entire font. Wow. That’s potentially good news.

He looks cool and sleek.I don’t necessarily have a problem with them adding a little black as as accent color here and there. But they’ve got everything outlined in it and the uniform looks so damned busy.The black alts need to go. 0 The only thing the Lions should do is eliminate black from their design. They should return to the Barry Sanders look.

I’ve never heard that when refferring to the Lions logo. Anyone care to explain?Oh, yeah. That’s just what we call him around here. Honestly, it’s more to do with the team, than the logo. Aside from the odd white spot caused by the raised front leg’s placement that a lot of people have a hard time figuring out, it’s a pretty solid logo. It’s just been associated with 50 years of losing, so we’ve given it an emasculating nickname befitting the team’s ineptitude.

I’m just afraid as to what might happen in the wrong hands. Snark Messier Prev Firefly Link to post Page 1 of 55   Followers 3 I think as long as the employ Verlander (Cardinals, Texans, Seahawks) to recreate the Lions logosI wonder if they’ll use the same font again. Link to post 2 The Detroit Lions held a “Town Hall” style meeting for select season ticket holders last night. The question arose as to whether the Lions would change their uniforms.From an Oakland (County) Press writer/blogger: “(Team President Tom) Lewand hinted that changes to the uniform and leaping Lion logo will be coming, though maybe not until the 2010 season. Uniform changes for this year had to be submitted last November. ‘Stay tuned,’ Lewand said.” Blog regarding Lions Town Hall MeetingThe same story was reported on Detroit’s Fox2 News by sports announcer and Lions radio, play-by-play man, Dan Miller. 13,075 0 Link to post 94 TruColor Link to post Posted January 28, 2009 Next 42 Share on other sites 860 posts Link to post shiznit1083 Posted January 27, 2009 shiznit1083 Posted January 27, 2009 Members Members I think as long as the employ Verlander (Cardinals, Texans, Seahawks) to recreate the Lions logosI wonder if they’ll use the same font again.I say, why not use the main Ford Field/end zone font?Ford Field font (It’s just the lighting of the picture, but you can already tell it wouldn’t look bad in something approaching the old Honolulu Blue.)endzone font…Funny how I had about as hard a time Googling a good picture of the Lions’ endzone, as the team does reaching the real one. 26,439 posts 0 Sports Logo News Location:Motown Recommended Posts 42 42 94 1,674 posts All Activity Share this post Go To Topic Listing Members Members 0 Share this post Location:The Hub Lions uniform changes Milo Meningocele 860 posts 0 Link to post 0 NO COPPERPLATE, PLEEEEEASE.SECONDED.

Link to post 5,159 Share this post Share this post 42 KJTALBOT I think their color scheme is fine, but definitely drop the black. They need to change that logo, now that it is associated with the only 0-16 team in NFL history. Besides, they’ve had it on their helmets since 1962, and they can definitely do something more with a lion as a logo. Link to post Share this post Lions uniform changeslast_img
