    Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    I'm a little surprised considering they had their greatest success with the current one. I loved the look they introduced in '97. Way better than the flamboyant pirate they had before:

    Hopefully they are culturally sensitive to pirates.

    Re: Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    Probably the owners looking for a money grab on new merch. Seems like I heard they had some serious money issues, possibly in the Madoff ponzi scheme or something. There was something going on there when they fired Gruden, hired Morris on the cheap and left a ton of cap space one year.

    I was a big fan when the franchise was created, and I loved the unis. Not a fan anymore, but just about anything would be an upgrade from currrent unis and helmets

    Re: Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    Worst Pro Sport Logos IMO:
    NFL - Jaguars, Titans, Texans
    MLB - D-backs, Marlins
    NBA - Rockets (go back to the old stuff), Magic, Bobcats


    How did this get better? It still looks like a throwing up cat Jags. SUCKS *Floating head logos for teams just look stupid IMO. Especially cats. AKA, Uni's logo... terrible.

    So you're saying it's a perfect fit?

    Re: Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    I've always kind of liked Tampa's current look, but of course they would have switched to that right when I was at the age that you get into football and are easily swayed by "cool" uniforms, plus I saw them all the time because they were inexplicably in the Vikings division then, so I might be nostalgia-biased.

    Re: Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    I actually though Tampa has always had a B+/A- logo and uniform set, both the orange/red and the red/pewter.

    Orange/red screams Florida, and red/pewter works the pirate motif quite nicely, and both had acceptable logos for their times--the Bucco, again, screams 70s and the current one just looks obviously something from the cartoonish 90s.

    A classy update of either could be nice.

    Then again, I know this is not going to be a classy update. This is going to be some unholy Nikefication with random panels, colors, too much black and gray for no reason, EXTREME everything, ugly monochromatic high school getup, and way too many color combinations. I know they are just doing helmet right now from the sound of it (sort of how Carolina did things a few years ago and, to a lesser extent, Detroit with a new helmet logo and a tweak to the uniforms), but the ugly Seattle "update" (when there was *nothing* wrong with their gorgeous blue/green/silver uniforms

    I wish football would go the route of baseball and hockey (and even basketball, though Adam Silver and uniform logos are about to make that into a semi-pro European league in terms of look) where only looks respectful to the history and trappings of the game are acceptable.

    Not saying Tampa is going to ramp off that now, though, at least. Rant over. Whew.
