So Melbourne have a new logo. So simple yet effective. Their monogram on a shield with Melbourne written on top, dropping all the other complex details.

I love all the older designs but you want to promote to youth and people that are not bomber supporters yet. TBH i dont even care what our logo looks like i already support essendon. Something like the Western Bulldogs logo is great for the younger crowd.
A cartoon plane is something that can be used for the Auskick kids and mascot manor.

And let's be honest, it's not the logo that will entice people to become Bomber fans, it's wins on the field. You can have the best looking logo in the world but if you're not winning it means nothing.
 

Reality Check!

The Melbourne logo is ******* terrible. Cluttered, bad use of gradients, random elements seemingly thrown all over the place.. seriously for any of you that think it's good please move to the USA because that logo is objectively BAD.

I have never liked our current logo apart from the fact we had our most successful season when it was introduced. Since then our fate has gone in the same direction the plane is facing.

On a side note can we change the mascot back to the original skeeta? I have never really been a fan of the concept of a mosquito but the current one makes me want to jump into the stadium and beat it to death.

You do realise that Melbourne have changed their logo today, hence why people are commenting on it?

I just got one of the New Era caps from the club shop with the EFC monogram. It looks great, as it would on loads of other merchandise. They seriously need to incorporate this into the next club logo, whenever that may be.

Don't know if it's my eyes, but does the blue in the Melbourne logo look even darker than before?
