Lions to change logo?

Recommended Posts

Rumor has it that during the "townhall meeting" for season ticket holders, when asked about the lions changing their logo/uniforms, Tom Lewand responded by simply saying "stay tuned"... leading one to believe that it's being discussed.

I'm all for a change myself as long as its not too drastic (remember the dark years of the teal, maroon and gold Pistons uni's? With that stupid flaming horse??). While the Lions need a lot of help on the field in just about every area, I think an change of logo/uni's would help to break the losing culture that is the Detroit Lions. Even if only a little bit.

I would love to see them go back to the throwbacks, with the solid silver helmets and high blue socks. Perhaps put the logo (if any) on the front hip of the pants or the shoulder of the jerseys? Old-School and classic logo like the the one out of the 60's...

...or perhaps something a little different...

I know this is a soccer league logo, but not bad IMO. Replace the soccer ball with a pig skin and make the it royal blue and silver.

Yeah, I'd be alright with the old school uniforms if we threw a logo on the helmet too. I like the old school uniforms, but I'm not sure if they'd go back to them full time.....

I'm down with the current colors (minus the black) but a change with the helmets would be cool...

According to 97.1 The Ticket, several people that attended the Lions town hall meeting said that the subject was indeed brought up and that a color change could be in the works too.

I am against it. I think the Lions colors are great (I don't mind the black). The team needs to change everything but the uniform. I love the leaping lion, I see no reason to change it. I think I saw a logo mock up a few years ago that had a Lion leaping toward you - leaping out of the side of the helmet growling with a claw extended - that was tolerable, but not as good as what they have now.

Don't get me wrong. I would be fine with them keeping them the same as well (minus the black... hate it! Reminds me of Millen). I'm definitely not down with them changing the colors to something crazy... If they do change I think old school is the way to go.

How 'bout a big Old English "L" They could claim it stands for Lions, but us Detroiters would know what it really stands for...

Lewand said he wanted to go with a darker, "more intimidating" blue. What about going with a USFL-type, Michigan Panthers logo?

Change the Panther to a Lion, make the blue a darker, royal blue, and change the helmet to silver.

If we didn't go retro, I think that would look pretty sweet.

I was thinking something like this. It would be fun for the whole family. This logo is from pbskids.org.

This one is also good. This logo is from firemillen.com.

This one is not as good as the other three, but not bad. Maybe change the red to blue for the Detroit Lions. This logo is from rugby.com.au.
