This appears in the latest edition of the AFL Record. I can't see it on the Port Adelaide website, so I guess it's just been made up for the article on Port (by Michelangelo Rucci). The Rooch can be a bit partial to such flights of fancy!

Crows just posted up the old logo for their #TBT.
Can we just appreciate how good this is for the 90s? The 2D style of it is possibly outdated for these days but it is still better and more original than the Ravens ripoff they have today.

Saw this, Brodie Smith then commented underneath it "next clash guernsey 👀". Doubt we'd be changing for a couple of years, but makes me think that perhaps it was an option for the most recent jumper but the club decided against it and went for a sh*t looking jumper instead?

Would be timeless with a slight update

It should indeed still be timeless. That logo had the potential to be a longstanding one, on par with St Kilda & Carlton's logos. Plus it had the advantage of being in use since the club's formation. AFC really did themselves no favours when they "Americanized" their club logo. Massive shame.

Some different levels of logo news:

First the bizarre from the world of Major League Rugby in the US:


NEWS MAY-28-2020
MAJOR LEAGUE RUGBY OFFICIALLY WELCOMES THE LA GILTINIS


DALLAS (May 28, 2020) – Major League Rugby (MLR) announced today that Los Angeles has officially been awarded a franchise for the 2021 MLR season. The new team is called the LA Giltinis, named after a premium cocktail based on the Martini.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming Los Angeles to MLR. LA is an important addition to the League as a major media market and the region has a lengthy rugby history embedded in their culture,” said Commissioner George Killebrew.

Ownership of the LA Giltinis will primarily reside with Loyals Rugby, a Rugby investment company founded in Australia. The LA Giltinis will be based in Venice Beach, are in discussions with Los Angeles Coliseum to be their home stadium, working with UCLA to develop their High-Performance facility and will extend significant investment to youth Rugby in the region.

“The launch of the LA Giltinis and Major League Rugby in Los Angeles will ensure Rugby takes its rightful place among the best entertainment products worldwide. It is our privilege to bring one of the world’s most popular sports to the world’s most prolific entertainment market.” Matt Burgess, CEO of Loyals Rugby.



Shute Shield winning and highly regarded Australian coach, Darren Coleman has been appointed Head Coach. Former Wallaby and Australian Sevens Coach, Stephan Hoiles has been appointed Assistant Coach.

There will be a non-alcoholic version of the Giltini available for those underage.

“I have the utmost confidence in the LA Giltinis ownership group to lead the team to success, and to provide valuable support for MLR as a whole. Given these uncertain times with the current global crisis, we feel fortunate that MLR is still rapidly growing and being positioned for success in 2021,” said Killebrew.

Henderson Silver Knights named official Golden Knights AHL affiliate
Bill Foley had a vision to expand hockey in Southern Nevada from the moment the Golden Knights came to reality.

By Danny Webster@DannyWebster21 Updated May 29, 2020, 12:59am EDT



When the Vegas Golden Knights became the NHL’s 31st franchise, owner Bill Foley knew they had to have their own American Hockey League affiliate within three to five years.

It only took three.

The Henderson Silver Knights were officially introduced as the Golden Knights’ new AHL affiliate, Foley announced during a televised special on Thursday.


The Silver Knights will take the place of the San Antonio Rampage and start play next season. The Golden Knights purchased the AHL club — the minor league affiliate of the St. Louis Blues — on Feb. 7 to apply for relocation. The AHL approved the sale on Feb. 28.


“When we started our initial ticket drive to bring hockey to Vegas and create the team we now know as the Golden Knights, it was obvious this community had all the makings of a great hockey city,” Foley said. “That being said, the passion and enthusiasm our fans have shown us over the past three years is greater than anything we could have imagined. Now our fans can watch more hockey right in their backyard and keep a close eye on our players’ journeys as they advance through our ranks with the intention of achieving the ultimate goal: Becoming a Vegas Golden Knight.”

Henderson will play at least next season at Orleans Arena before moving to a 6,000-seat arena — the Henderson Events Center — built at the site of the Henderson Pavilion on Green Valley Parkway and Paseo Verde Parkway in time before the 2022-23 season. Ground is set to be broken in August.
Golden Knights president Kerry Bubolz announced May 19 the organization has secured at least 7,600 deposits for Silver Knights season tickets next season. Foley confirmed that number Thursday, adding tickets will start at $10 next season.

The talk of bringing an AHL franchise to Southern Nevada started last season. Foley, Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon and president of hockey operations George McPhee understood the benefits of having their own AHL club and it being within proximity of Vegas headquarters. The Chicago Wolves had been Vegas’ AHL affiliate since the 2017-18 inaugural season.

Chicago made the playoffs in both seasons, including a trip to the Calder Cup Final in 2019.

While the Wolves had substantial success under the Golden Knights umbrella, sending players to and from Rosemont, Illinois was a caveat to push for this. It’s a three-hour, 46-minute flight from Las Vegas to the residence of AHL Chicago; think of someone like Nicolas Roy involved in 30 transactions between the pro club and the minor league affiliate.

There aren’t enough frequent flyer miles in the world.

“The way it evolved, having it here in Henderson, is really great for the Golden Knights and their whole system,” Foley said. “The Wolves were great partners. We just needed to take control of our destiny and have it here in the Valley.

“We call guys up, they don’t have to fly in from Chicago. They just drive across town. If someone gets the flu the night of a game, we call someone up and they report to T-Mobile [Arena, a 13-minute drive from the site of the new arena]. It’s so convenient and it makes so much sense.”

Foley confirmed jerseys are finalized and will be revealed in a couple of months to be ready for sale. Lifeguard Arena, the Silver Knights’ practice facility on Water Street, will be open Sept. 15, as will be the equivalent to the Arsenal, the Golden Knights’ team store. Fans can buy merchandise on VegasTeamStore.com.

“I think it’s going to be amazing. It’s a pretty awesome logo,” said Silver Knights forward Ben Jones, who played his first year of pro hockey for the Wolves this season. “Just playing in Henderson is going to be amazing. Even just being 10 minutes from the big club is going to be interesting to keep you honest. You don’t know who’s going to come through the door.”

The “Reveal Knight” program was also the start of a partnership between the Silver Knights and KSNV Channel 3. Foley said 10 home games will be broadcast on the local channel.

The origins


Foley’s primary objective when thinking of the logo was how to best connect it with the Golden Knights. He liked how the team would be viewed as knights and felt adding a warhorse was ideal. They went through many names and ideas, but everything came back to the Silver Knights.
“It’s going to be great for the guys in the AHL team,” Foley said.The logo is a horse formed in a ‘H’ to represent Henderson. There are 20 chainlinks and 21 rivets on the base to represent the 2020-21 inaugural season.

The Golden Knights’ shield encompasses the warhorse; the steed “played a vital role in a knight’s quest to become elite, assisting in the night’s raining, skill advancement and overall development,” according to the club’s website.

“I always felt that it would be a great combination of having the knight and the warhorse,” Foley said. “Could you imagine if you were an archer or swordsman in medieval times, and the warhorse and knight is racing toward you? We just felt like it was a terrifying thing for the opposition.”
The gold eyes pay homage to the Golden Knights, with the primary colors being gold, silver and black.

“This was easy for me,” Foley said. “I was in the approval mode, not the design mode.”
