:noidea: I actually feel bad 4 their fans. I really do. At the moment, I'm re-reading The BUS book & just remembered his words as he was saying even though he is from Detroit, his brother & he didn't care about the Lions, since the Lions always sucked. They must've really sucked since the hometown kid is thinking this way.

Do U guys think these new logo & uniform will help their team?

My advice,

"Less Action in the Uniform, more action on the field."

the cardinals slightly changed their cardinal (under denny green a few years back) to a sleeker and slightly more "meaner" look.

it got a piss ant doormat franchise to the superbowl. :noidea:

ive always liked the cardinals and lions uniforms, and i think these subtle changes are an upgrade.

I've never liked the Lions uniforms. But I think it's mostly the team colors, so an upgrade to the design wouldn't really change my opinion.

I think the upgrade to the logo though is great.

I feel the same. The logo is an improvement, but i can't stand their uniform colours.

They need 9 losses in order to break the record for the longest losing streak in modern NFL history. Can the new uniform help them achieve their goal?

God, I hope so! :sofunny:

I always hated their old numbers - way too boxy and shadowy.

New ones look much better - so does the logo. But still, they're the Lions... :noidea:

while i agree, it didnt hurt shithole franchises such as the bucs, patriots, seahawks, oilers/titans, and cardinals; of course, their fortunes had much more to do with something other than a simple uniform change. :noidea:

just sayin...

(fwiw the browns have no uniform or logo change in the works :toofunny:)

damn, i never realized how bad their old logo sucked. atleast the new lion has toes and a forearm thats not morphed into the chin. :noidea:

definitely time for that org to take some pride (no pun intended) in itself, and upgrade that piece of shit, ghetto logo from the 1930's. theres highschool teams that would be ashamed to slap that on their helmets.

i guess ive never really looked at it up close, but thats more embarrassing than matt millen.

they will win a maximum of 4 games this year, due to the logo change, alone. :thumbsup:

Seriously...they have a cool name, THE LIONS! I mean, that's the King of the Jungle Right? Not like the "bengals" or some "bird" like a Cardinal? That's a baseball name, not football.

But to have that as the logo? Why not have a Lions Face, change up the colors to darker Blue meaner looking? There are so many cool Lion faces they could use too, LIONS I mean really, that's a cool name, but no, they just make it look a little different, keep the same color scheme and call it a change.

At least when the Broncos, Patriots, Bucs changed, they Completely Changed and "rebooted" their franchises.

They should have went to a darker blue all they did was polish a turd. And how ironic that in the myth buster video the one guy used lion turds.

When they play the Seakhawks, both teams are going to throw lots of interceptions.

All Flash. No Substance.


The logo is an improvement, but all the uniform revamps in the world won't help your team do better. How about aspiring to improve on 0-16?

It helped the Broncos!

They lost those four super bowls (and two of them were ass-whippings) with this logo...

... and once they changed to a new, and still current logo, they won not only a super bowl, but two in a row!

Oh yeah baby ..... that is a dangerous looking bird now!

LOL! That really intimidated us this year! :rofl:

As far as the Lion's new logo?

Quite frankly I always thought that their old logo was lame. I always thought it looked like a blue blob with a familiar shape. There just wasn't any real "grit" to it for being a "LION"! When I heard they were planning on a new one it made sense to me, but this is the change???????

http://dd.wcsx.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/lionslogo1.jpg

... they changed the font and just added in an eye and some 'mane waves' so that there was no denying it actually is a lion and not a blue blob? COME ON! This is lame! :doh:


Other suggestions I saw out on the net for the logo were..............

There were a lot of better choices out there but all they did was to define the blue blob? :noidea:
