    These dip shit comments on the latest post are a good indicator of why nothing should be left to the supporters. Everyone screaming "it looks too much like Carlton" should be aware that A) it looks nothing like Carlton, three letters can be assembled in completely different ways as seen, and B) we've been using this monogram since at least the 1950s and I'm rapt it's being brought back in a permanent capacity.

    I honestly don't believe they do, look at the way the above letters integrate (the two C's lapped around each other, F cutting down the middle) versus the Collingwood CFC (wide C, F & C next to each other) but happy to agree to disagree.

    If we are doing this to piss off Carlton I fully endorse it.

    I don't necessarily disagree with you.. but as supporters, surely caring about this is very low on our list of priorities.

    To be honest, I don't care less about our logo as long as it represents our heritage (which the new one does).

    I just don't think the Club needs a bunch of members acting as Creative Directors.

    So what are they planning on doing with this lettering one from the 50s? I don't like it at all, can barely see what it says, its way to crowded and doesnt represent us at all imo, how are we the magpies by looking at that? Im ok with the logo in OP it is actually growing on me a lot, so they better go with that

    The logo, the lettering, it's a masterstroke from Ed.
    No-one is talking about the shambles of a half decade, on field and off, and the bleak future.
    Eds a genius to equal Einstein.

    Would have preferred the simple edition of another magpie on an already classy looking emblem.

    We're actually not even a f**king Football Club anymore without the "Football Club" text.

    Normally what happens when we get PC and think adding a netball team and an AFLW team will bring in more money. Ffs.

    Does anyone else think we should have a logo for the "Collingwood brand". Say the one in OP, that encompasses all the teams that fall under the Collingwood umbrella (AFL, AFLW, VFL, SNL).
    But then we should have 4 different logos for each of the individual teams that are distinct yet obviously connected to the main logo.
    That way we could have branding that applies to Collingwood as a whole, but then individual branding for each team that gives them an individual sense of identity.

    But more importantly think of the merchandise opportunities.

    I mean it was a running gag on here wasn't it?

    How many players over the years have been 2-3 weeks away for the ENTIRE season? If that isn't the doc/medical staff then who is it?

    I like the monogram personally because it speaks of tradition and success, but if they're going to use it on an official basis the F needs to be fixed. It really does look like a P and modernising it slightly will also add the touch of 21st century as well.

    What does the P stand for? Sounds worthy of its own thread.

    Based on our last couple of years, it could be "Pathetic".

    Ed would tell you it's "potential".

    Maybe it should by "Phantasy".

    Hopefully it's nothing to do with our gay marriage stance.
