    It's growing on me too, but that feminine eye and exaggerated beak still bother me. The text as well. I had a spare minute at work, so I made some subtle changes.

    so much better without the crap text. The logo itself reminds me of Atlanta Hawks logo (below) for some reason! Well it is a very American logo which tend to not use Shield logos.

    Now this thing looks fierce. It makes the Crows 'fiercer' logo look like a stuffed kids toy

    Things I don't like about it (including some I agree with from above):

    1. It's a flat out ripoff of the Baltimore Ravens(?) logo. Not unique or original.
    2. The text is "Nintendo DS" (thank kaij10 for a good choice of words).
    3. The eye is feminine - looks like it's wearing mascara FFS.
    4. In general, it says "American sports franchise" and not "Australian football club".

    Things I like about it:

    1. It is not, apparently, replacing the official club logo - just a merchandise thing and for the away jumper, as I understand it. So OK, whatever, as long as we can still buy polos and suchlike with the official club logo as an alternative. Sorry but I'm 52 and I'm NOT wearing a shirt with that thing on it :p

    Which brings me to my biggest worry: That we're going to end up with an abomination of an away jumper like Hawthorn's or Port's. I can deal with white (I think Freo's and Carlton's are good) but only with a strong, simple, logo-based design - not some cartoon.

    It's the possibility of the awful away jumper that bothers me the most.

    If they get the away jumper right - I can live with the logo.

    I'd consider myself very open-minded to any changes and the kind of person they'd be looking at appealing to, but it sucks, plain and simple.

    It's about as good as the current one.

    In other words not very.

    Don't think that's a bad effort actually however there is no white in our club colours and i see no reason why there should be white in our jumper.

    there is no white in Hawthorn's colours either. white is an obvious choice as you can easily add your own colours to it. It just needs to be done right

    and this is not right, if the Crow was the right navy blue colour I would have less of an issue with it, but you can expect something cringeworthy I fear.

    Well, if you're curious, and because I'm bored... Hawks style, without the white...

    The white jumper looks good. Nice colours.

    Personally I would prefer not to have a massive birds head on a footy jumper.

    I miss our colours in this pic :(

    Just as long as they get it right, so it looks professional and not something like Brisbane's debacle or Ports then I'll be ok with it.

    I dont mind it either.

    The best white jumpers are Carltons and Freo's IMO.

    This one is not as good as theirs but is not too bad.

    I HATE the white jumpers - all of them

    FFS it's not soccer or athletics

    there is a reason teams have colours

    white is not a colour

    neither is teal

    FFS

    I feel better now

    I think it depends on whether we win games.

    If we go well next year then no one will care about the logo or the away guernsey.

    If we lose matches then suddenly these things become 'curses' that we must get rid of.

    Nup - it's revolting. Looks like somethin Port would try to pull off. Get rid of it before it's on anything permanant.

    The logo needs the whole of the actual Crow on it - looks like an eagle or hawk - and it's totally the wrong blue - we are navy blue not some faggy royally blue.

    Modernization or Americanization? Next thing the Crows (doesn't even look like a Crow) will be wearing BLING on the field.

    Will their slogan change too? "The Team for All Bogans"..

    Makes me want to tuck my pants into my ugg boots.

    Worst Logo in the NBL.. (It's an AFL Logo? You're kidding?)

    GET RID OF IT!!!!
