What if 1870 was swapped with "PAFC" and right above or below it in the black area you have a small "1870" in white?
Doesn't really do it for me tbh. Just looks a bit basic and the diamond is a kind of obscure reference which we haven't seen before.

The unique part of our identity is the word PORT. I'd like to see that word used as the main part of the logo with a small amount of teal and possibly the prison bars in there somewhere. You see the word PORT, you know exactly who it means.

Agree with this.

As an SA expat living in Melbourne, I've noticed the change from our early AFL days.

In the beginning, I used to have to tell people I support Port Adelaide. Now, you just have to say Port and everyone knows what you mean. The word/name Port was always a great brand by itself and now it's an established part of the national football consciousness.

It's one of the few advantages we have - we should push it hard.

Unpopular opinion time - 1870 by itself is not a logo. Establishment dates are good as a part of something bigger but not as the main focal point.
I agree that 1870 itself isn't a logo but it can still be used to great effect on our apparel. Imagine wearing a jacket with just "1870" on the sleeve, the same way Obama is rocking the "44" below.

I understand the admin sucks, but the logo of 2 logos put together is only a short term thing. We need a singular logo that represents the whole club.

But the two logos is our logo due to the two separate competitions the club plays in.
Are you suggesting we remove the magpie logo from the SANFL team identity.
Do you believe the AFL (and Collingwood) will allow us to incorporate a magpie in a new logo used for that competition?
Do you agree that the logos for each division is the perfect logo for NTUA and quite perfectly identifies the club as it is?

I can understand the club considering something for the 150th year (only) because of merchandizing revenue, assuming supporters will purchase in a spending frenzy. Not sure that will happen given the level of disenchantment.

My concern is the club initializing a one of for one year only to then making the logo a more permant arrangement, again for merchandizing sales. We are talking bean counters, making change to club identity, that ultimately reduces club identity. Does anyone trust the current administration not to do that? Let's remember how the co-captaincy issue panned out and apply that to this. I'll make an educated guess and state they wont be listening to members because (1) it has already been decided and (2) members don't count.

Port Adelaide is stronger than Port IMO.

If you say you go for Port, do you get the you support Port Power back from them?

I hate that we had to run with Port Power for 3 years to differentiate ourselves from Port Magpies. Both should have been Port Adelaide. In the AFL we should have been Port Adelaide or just Port, but not Port Power. But nobody in the history of a national sporting competition in the world that I'm aware of was forced to split into 2 and go thru the his BS, so we learnt on the job and made a few errors in the early days.

Agree with Port Adelaide for both AFL and SANFL. The lightning bolt for AFL, the Magpie for SANFL. But Port Adelaide for both.

Happy to drop the Magpie logo altogether. The maggies I grew up loving ceased to exist a long time ago. Put it in the memory bank where it belongs.
