(Some marketing genius)   After several years of eclectic clownish variations of their iconic kit, one of Europe's biggest football clubs goes all in and ditches their historic crest for some chicken scratch calligraphy which looks like a penis with testicles ...

It's just the existing logomark with everything removed but the I and M, and it's not like they haven't changed the rest of the crest around before.

So they are changing their logo to a Mets/Yankees mashup.  Hope that works out for them.

Reminds me of a classical military helment but I associate the nose-piece more with the Greeks than the Romans.

The problem is that it follows Juventus' lead of creating an absolutely bland stain of a "crest". You won't find a single person outside of the Juventus kitmakers who thinks that one was a positive change, either.

I don't know why, but I've always liked their 1998 badge.

I guess you could say it's an Inter change?

Everything associated with soccer is clownish. You know the rules.

Or a penis, for that matter.

that too, though the vague general overall shape is a little closer.

If any Italian team needs to change their logo it's Napoli. That one just screams they didn't care.

The logo has remained consistent throughout the team's history. And the depiction of a snake is part of the city's history, so even that isn't much of a departure from the team's history. However, that cannot be said for the change in 1928. From Wikipedia:

"During the 1928-29 season, however, Inter were forced to abandon their black and blue uniforms. In 1928, Inter's name and philosophy made the ruling Fascist Party uneasy; as a result, during the same year the 20-year-old club was merged with Unione Sportiva Milanese: the new club was named Società Sportiva Ambrosiana after the patron saint of Milan. The flag of Milan (the red cross on white background) replaced the traditional black and blue. In 1929 the black-and-blue jerseys were restored, and after World War II, when the Fascists had fallen from power, the club reverted to their original name."

Allegedly. According to a leak. I'll believe it when I see it

I'll reckon a guess that kits of the past few years haven't wowed any supporters either.

I mean, I get that one can be limited by the classic design of the kit (i.e. Juve's or Barca's) but jeez, some of the kits they come up with they would have to pay me to wear.

As opposed to football factories (like a certain school from Indiana) doing everything in their power to justify their brand despite the fact their team sucks?

I mean, at least people get paid for the BS in club soccer; unlike CFB.
