What happened to crest emblem displayed a few posts down in the middle?

Sukhraj said...

yea..what happend to the second finalists??

dsandler77 said...

The top left non-finalist is the best. The bold purple B with the gold crown on top. Very clean, very nice logo...should have been a finalist.

Where did the crest go too? That was my other choice.

I'm glad for the #2 change. I like this one.

The #1 non-finalist would be a solid secondary for it too

chuck said...

I too am wondering where the 2nd finalst went from the earlier post, was my fav. I find the first two non-finalists too similar to Budweiser, it'd be good if it were a beer-league team maybe :).

Mike Phoenix said...

Im very suprised that my Skull logo is there. I like Number 2 alot and Non Finalist 1 is a good one as well . Im very shocked. Honestly im going to vote for Non Finalist 1.

Grinch said...

number 2 is the clearcut winner here. as for the secondary i say the first non finalist

Mike Phoenix said...

Look at the crown on non finalist 1 and the New finalist 2. I bet there from the same set. and that the B is really the Secondary for the finalist 2 lion.

Feio said...

I agree that I miss the old #2 finalist. Somebody pointed out that the lion on shield design is similar to a logo in the english soccer leagues, but that is because it is a very common design for teams. I think you will find that there is a large number of soccer teams that incorporate that lion into their coat of arms. I don't see it as a lack of originality at all - I think it is a great idea to bring in some of that classic royal design to a hockey league.

Bring back the old #2!!!

Mike said...

Chris, why did you yank my lion logo?? That's the only logo of mine that's ever made your top 3 :(

DaneykoIsGod said...

Bottom left Non-Finalist for me. That would look great on a jersey.

Adam said...

i chose the first non-finalist, the purple B with the crown and gold accents. maybe just slap it on a shield but i think that's the best one. out of the 3 finalists though i'd go #3

MARC10L said...

The first non-finalist (bold 'b' with crown) was my secondary logo for the second finalist (lion with crown) as pointed out by Mike Phoenix. When I sent it in last night i forgot to label primary and secondary so Chris probably thought that they were both primary logos.

Adam - I was considering putting the 'b' logo on a shield (and still can however probably can't be counted) however after coming up with the last minute design yesterday i was tired and decided not to go with the shield

SeahawksSam said...

I chose #2, I thought it was a great replacement for the old #2. I like the ideas of adding the lions, I also really like non-finalist #3.

Finalist #3 would make an excellent 2nd logo, though.

capouel said...

First non-finalist for me !

ogre39666 said...

I went with finalist # 2. There are a lot of good ones for this team but I feel finalist #2 would make the best primary while the others are best suited to be secondaries (like non finalists top row left and middle, middle row right, and the bottom row).

Daniel said...

i think that the anchor logo is pretty sweet, as is nonfinalist 1, but im def voting for finalist 2.

Adam said...

too bad we cant just use the reading royals logo.. that one is awesome.

Dare said...

I voted for finalist number 2, but non-finalist number 1 is pretty great as well.

NHL Jeff said...

Non-finalist 1

NHL Jeff said...

Finalist 2 looks more like a dog than a lion...

ali said...

Finalist 2 is the sharpest looking one,
plus I am not voting for something that looks like Micheal Jackson( a.k.a, Finalist 1).
And the last one is just plain bad, kinda kiddish.

anonymous said...

This doesn't have anything do with this poll, but the Texas stars AHL team have a logo:

TX_Flame said...

One vote for the first crowned B

Tyler said...

I voted for #2 but my preference as well is for the original #2 with the lion.

MrDolomite said...

Voting for Non-Finalist #7, the silver "R" on the purple and yellow shield. Comments on the others: F#1 - The Grateful Dead called and want you to come back. F#2 - Too windblown. F#3 - Too striped. NF#1 - Is that supposed to be the letter "B" or "R" in that scripty font?

Mike Phoenix said...

LOL Dolomite. To be honest as i said earlyer im very suprized mine is a finalist. That #7 you picked is better then my Greatful Dead Michael Jackson Skull. and i think your right it is a R on NF#1.

Arenacale said...

I voted for the skull, but #2 would make a great secondary for the Manchester Monarchs.

Leafers LP said...

It's funny you say that, Arenacale, because I was just about to show the Manchester Monarch's first logo and how similar they are, just different direction:

I prefer number one anyways.

David said...

Non-finalist #1, clearly!

MARC10L said...

Actually when i made the logo F#2 i was more influenced by the reading royals logo since they were the rivals to the echl team in my town.

Mike said...

Marc, how did your logo bump my lion out of the finals? Weird!

S.D. said...

Non-Finalist #1 for me. But like several others, I would vote for the original Finalist #2 had it not been yanked.

MARC10L said...

I don't know, That is one of the logos i really liked. Thought that he would have pulled the skull one but should have at least put it as one of the non-finalists

Coluch said...

#2 that appeared a few posts back was the best. Why was it removed? I didn't see an explanation posted. Anyway... OLD #2 wherever that went.
