that looks stupid
 
2014-02-21 12:16:53 AM  
Hahahahaha!!!! That's really bad. I remember when they talked about changing the 49ers logo at one time to something ridiculous too. Thankfully they didn't.
 
2014-02-21 12:32:51 AM  
They made the logo bigger. So ...

They should bring back this guy:

And these uniforms:

scottmcmahon.files.wordpress.com

And make them the regular getup instead of a special occasion thing.

You make it sound like that's the worst idea ever or something,  subby.  Have you not watched a second of college football in the past five years? They could do a LOT worse.

\not a fan of 99% of modern football uniform looks
\\though I'd love to see working Bucco into the modern uniform somehow

The Oregon and Maryland uniforms come to mind.

Agree. They could have modernized the creamsicle look. Instead they just made the logo sleeker like the Carolina Panthers did a couple of years back.

Baylor had some pretty awful combinations too. That shiny gold helmet was ridiculous.

We may be headed toward the Oregonification of the NFL, if only because more uniform combinations will give teams more merchandise to sell to fans.

Based on their logo, I would have to say "yes".
 
2014-02-21 07:35:15 AM  
Looks exactly the same as before
 
2014-02-21 07:40:33 AM  
The hell are you people talking about? This is now easily the most badass helmet in the NFL.

great.  at least they'll look good while being pummeled by every opponent they play.

I was thinking now that homosexuality is acceptable they would bring back Bruce.
 
2014-02-21 08:18:15 AM  
Kind of looks the same as the old one.  Only bigger.  Not sure what the issue is.
 
2014-02-21 08:18:24 AM  
You'll get over it
 
2014-02-21 08:21:07 AM  
Granted, I've only attended one game in Tampa -- went to see the Eagles win on a last-second play in December 2012 -- but it doesn't seem like this is enough of a change to make everyone run to the pro shop and buy new swag, where a change to the creamsicle throwbacks would sell more shirts.

I think the same thing about the Eagles at this point, too -- if they went back to the Randall-Cunningham-era kelly green with the spread-wing bird on the sleeve they'd sell a metric asston of jerseys. Nobody wants to pay $350 for Mitchell & Ness and the knockoff jerseys are too unpredictable.
 
2014-02-21 08:22:47 AM  
I dont mind it.

Bigger, angrier, and a matted black.

I grew up with that logo and when I was 12 inherited a Tshirt with that logo that was my adolescent-tomboy-self's pride and joy.

When they changed to the current design and actually started winning games, I could almost never lay eyes on the old logo ever again.

This new logo is just fine, erryone needs to just deal.

That's what she said.

It looks way better than the one it replaced. As others have stated, the Creamsicle Orange (aka Guido Tan) needs to come back, just because it's unique.

You're letting nostalgia get in the way of common farking sense.

The uniforms are great but the merch is not.  It is easier to sell a middle aged mad a black, red, and pewter shirt/hat/coat than it is to sell him an red, light orange, and white shirt/hat/jacket.

I think.

corq: This new logo is just fine, erryone needs to just deal.


It's not really a new logo, unless you count moving some of the random black "shadow" lines around on the flag.  That's why my headline was "Goddamnit Buccaneers."

"say whaaaaa?"

The helmet itself, with the chrome grill, is very, very cool.

The new logo?

Looks like it was drawn by a 4th grader going off memory.
 
2014-02-21 08:52:42 AM  
This is metal as f*ck.  I love it.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers: with NEW hat!
 
2014-02-21 08:54:23 AM  
Also, a friend pointed out that the shadowing for the flag pole is on the wrong side of the flag now.  For some reason, there's a black letter I on the left side of the flag now....

Slow To Return: Also, a friend pointed out that the shadowing for the flag pole is on the wrong side of the flag now.  For some reason, there's a black letter I on the left side of the flag now....


Thought that too at first, but that's a helmet ventilation opening
 
2014-02-21 08:58:01 AM  
Bucs execs: "Hey guys...I hear that when teams change logos, they sell a TON more merch!  Let's do it and make some extra money!  Check out what Dave's nephew drew up!"

Janitor mopping outside the board room: "Ummm...so you think you'll sell more shiat because you got rid of the shadows on the flag & changed the color of the sword a little?  And they pay you HOW MUCH a year?
 
2014-02-21 08:59:04 AM  
Would probably sell more new merch with this logo:

Oh wow, really?

A quick Google, it looks like most teams either move the opening, or work the logo around the opening so that the opening doesn't interfere with the logo.

Yeah...that would require the Bucs design team and/or management to actually know what they're doing.  And as we see from the "new" logo roll-out...well...lolz
 
2014-02-21 09:03:51 AM  
Wouldn't the sword cut the flag?

It's scientific inaccuracies like this that really piss me off about sports team logos.

You can do that when the logo doesn't take up 75% of the helmet area.

I tend to agree.  I never warmed up to the old creamsicles.  I really think the new unis are a huge improvement.
 
2014-02-21 09:06:51 AM  
Some exec's nephew got a new tracing table, a picture of a Terminator skull, and a set of Prismacolors for Christmas...

"Hey son, how'd you like to get paid royalties for a logo redesign?"

"Sure pops!"

"Be sure to make the eyebrow ridge EXTRA swoopy so he looks HARDCORE and TOUGH"

"OK pops!"
 
2014-02-21 09:08:23 AM  
TFA: "The Bucs also will use a new "ship" secondary mark."

Wharr?
 
2014-02-21 09:15:30 AM  
i tried reading this thread, but my eyes glazed over like i was reading women talk about shoes.
 
2014-02-21 09:21:27 AM  
so basically they paid somebody to make the logo bigger?
