Listen: Phillies, Eagles And Minnesota discussed on SportsRadio 94WIP Nights and Weekends
"At the new Phillies logo, and it's just it's not inspiring. And I don't know if you've seen it because the whole thing usually when you get a new logo that comes out. It's a big announcement. Right. Logos. Are so important a professional sports teams. It it just is. It's it's the one thing that people look at it and say, oh, yeah. I I know exactly what you're talking about that. That guy's an eagles fan. I could see his shirt. Yes. You're an eagles fan. You're a flyers fan. Now. There's a p he's a Phillies guy you can identify any team in any city in any sport by their logo. It's just really important and cool. Logos can really go a long way. And so you think of for example, throwback nights and stuff the Vancouver Grizzlies going back, and you remember that logo with that really big Brown bear in that ugly. Green font. It's it's an odd. One low that's such an odd logo. I'm going to take a look at it myself. 'cause man that was it was cool. Cool though, it was ugly. But it was cool. And so there's something about logos. That can really stick with people that can have a major power to it. And when you think about the eagles, for example, they've got the old ones that people want to go back to where it's that big wide flying eagle? You get the full body. I think the current ones pretty sharp. So I like the the eagles logo. But some people do want to go back to the old one. Now the Phillies because there is a new logo for the Phillies. Now came out sort of by accident. It seems what happened is the Phillies? Majestic clubhouse store. So the store that's at the corner of citizens Bank park where you can buy stuff at the game shirts and bats, and whatever they sent out a tweet that said, hey, look, this is the Phillies new primary logo. Check it out here. It is on a t shirt. And then I guess everybody that Phillies was like, oh my God. All the planning that goes into unveiling a logo usually it's a press conference and you've got players come onstage wearing the new gear with the new logo. And it's this. It's this big event in everybody talks about and there's so much buzz because you do it on a Monday or a Tuesday or Wednesday. It's a Friday night Friday. Not looking I'm like, wait, the Phillies have a new what I don't see this thing anywhere. I'm checking the Phillies made accountable. I don't know where it is. And then chernoff, the majestic clubhouse store. Actually, put out the Phillies new logo announced that it was going to be the Phillies new logo before people were ready for and the thing is you send the shirt to the store now here's and I'll talk about the logo in a second. But you send the shirt to the store, and usually you wouldn't think anything of it. You see a million different Phillies shirts. Right. You see a million different flyers shirts in eagle shirts. And whatever Jack Fritz is producing right now. He's wearing an eagles shirt says. Birds of prey or something like that birds of broad street. I think is what it says. And it just got this big wide older eagle logo. It's a nice shirt light green. The eagles white the fonts white. It's cool to good luck this Phillies logo. Yeah. It is. You're very stylish man, Jack. I only wear vented Phillies sports gear. You got a style. Yeah. Well, yeah. And it makes sense you're here then. So for me, I wear like I dunno. I wear a lot of sweat pants, and I wear over watched t shirts so video game t shirts, and I'm just a really cool guy. Where a lot of sweaters. I'm very old. So here's the thing to Philly shirt. Is that gets unveiled is a redshirt Phillies red and then the Phillies as as the font the fund hasn't changed. It's the typical Phillies font that big red with the p and the stars are those blue stars over the is that you're used to. So that's all the same. But instead of having that diamond around the Phillies logo stead of getting that diamond with the blue background in the white liberty bell. Now. It's just the Phillies words and the liberty bell behind it in blue. Now, the thing is on a red shirt. It just doesn't look good. Just not a good, look, I wouldn't buy it. I I don't know. There's enough people that do like it. I've been running poll on Twitter, and it's not fifty fifty. I think a enough people right now are saying no they don't like the logo. Let me get the numbers for that. For you just to be accurate here. Talking about the low guide damn well better be on point. Let's see. Yeah. Which Phillies logo is better. You can join the poll at its Vince Quinn. Thirty six percent say the new one sixty four percent say the old one. Now, here's the thing when it comes to logo changes, and this might be a bias, and I'm dealing with right now as well is everybody almost universally hates logos. When they change whatever the new logo is unless it's a massive improvement. Most people say I like the old one better just how it goes your tach to the old one you have those jerseys in hats in penance in whatever with the old logo. It's just what you expect bumper stickers with the old logo. So when it changes you like that's not my team. That's what my team looks like. And that happens for everything any brand that changes the logo usually people freak out about it. 'cause oh my God. It's different than what it used to be. So maybe that's part of what's going on right now. But. My gut feeling is the old logo was better. So I'd love to hear your thoughts on it. And by the way, if you have a favorite logo. Is there any logo and professional sports that you look at you think about and say man, I just I it doesn't it's not about the team. It's not whether or not you're fan of another team. It's just do you think there's a logo? That's got a pretty cool. Look to it one that sticks out for me. I love this logo the Minnesota wild. Nobody ever talks about the Minnesota wild, really. And I get it Chuck Fletcher. I guess the new GM for the flyers is getting a little bit of that conversation. But. You look at this. And the Minnesota wild logo is just so cool. It's that big bear head and inside it looks like the wild. It looks like the woods. You've got this red and yellow and green the stars going across. It's just an awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome logo. So I love it. And I'm saying that of course in honor of the Phillies logo. If you got a favorite logo would love to hear what it is. You can join the show at eight eight eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four pound nine four nine four and tell me how you feel about the Phillies new logo. Let's talk to Randy in Philly about Randy. How you feel about the logo? Oh, I. It's horrible. Burn. So so what is I there's so many? Let's let's just let's just be simple about it before. This is the second incarnation of the liberty bell logo. I didn't like I didn't like the first one very much because the liberty bell is really not. Perfectly. Okay symbol. Of course. It is. But it's not related to baseball. Anyway. So they bounded it with the baseball. With the baseball field. Like they did in the previous logo, right? When this logo has the Bill. It's three times the size of the p it's showcasing the bell and not the name. It's overshadowing the name. It would be like having the McDonald's logo with a cheeseburger behind it. We absolutely stupid. It doesn't matter that they sell more Bergerson eighty right? It's ridiculous. I also don't like the stars on the is. I don't know why. They're not baseball. Well, okay. That's an interesting point. And I'd be willing to hear you out on. Here's my problem with the the stars over the I is that they blend in with the bell so much that you almost have to to squint a little bit before the bell was white it just stuck out a little bit easier. But now with this thing when you at least when you look at it on this shirt, it's just it's hard to read it just sort of blends in what they're really saying is that they have no confidence in the name Phillies and how it's designed because they don't feel strong enough to stand on its own. And if that's the case that redesign it, but I think it's it's perfectly reasonable. I think without the bell. And if you wanted to bell just make it the same size as the p and stick it to the left side of the P, and that's fine. Oh, okay. So you would start the word. Phillies with the tiny liberty Bill. Same size as the P. Yeah. Okay. I like that and say that's a that's a pretty good, look Randy. And thank you for the call. I appreciate it. Those were some some good thoughts on the logo. So I would love to hear people's thoughts on the logo. And again, if we've got anybody out there, obviously, you know, it's a Friday night people out and about if you have any sort of graphic design background or your some sort of artists, and you've got opinions, especially need an expert opinion on what's going on with this new Phillies logo. If you haven't seen it give it a look it's on Twitter. And here's what I'll do right now. Because I just wanna make it easy for years. I can hear is the new Phillies logo on re tweeting it right now. So you can find it on my account at its Vince Quin. That's all one word. It's Vince Quinn. Give it a look tell me what you think do you like the new Phillies logo and also what is your favorite logo? Is it? What's the logo that sticks out that you think is really cool for me? I love that Minnesota wild logo is just the best. So that and all my God. Did you see what happened with Kevin Hart that? Is next. Hey, it's spike. I know it's time for me to step up my watch game. Which is exactly why I'm going to see two guys over at time. After time they've got everything there from everyday options to that special. Find time after time has every brand you could imagine all my."
