Eh it's interesting, will definitely have to get used to it.

Clearly trying to mimic the sort of 'Sydney Roosters logo' vibe so I understand what they were trying to do.

Yeah, a return to the red V wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. A return to the red sash would be even better.

I don’t mind it, but then I was in a minority who didn’t really love the old one.

Most interesting for me is it just says Sydney rather than Sydney Swans. From a branding POV, the club have historically always attached the Swans moniker to their name and not simply gone by Sydney to avoid conflicts with teams in other sports.
Probably part of the deal when South moved north too.

Put my finger over the googly eye thing and it looks so much better.

I'm with you, too. The incumbent is a fine logo, but doesn't really warrant the love it gets on here. It's always felt very corporate to me, the swan is too delicate for a sports logo. And on top of that, it was really unbalanced with the heavy V on top and the finicky swan on the bottom. This new one at least feels more like a sports logo.

It’s called a Basal Knob, otherwise known as the Lord Mayor of Perth. I agree that it’s a bit distracting. They should probably take the highlight off it.

I’m probably in the minority here but I actually think this is an improvement. The swan in the old logo was poorly drawn.

Edit: Sans shiny Knob.

It’s not an eye it’s a nose ball sack

Yeah I get that, I just don't think it's a commonly identified feature of a swan. Especially not for a logo that's taking a fairly minimal take. If you asked someone to draw a swan, I would say that 90% of the time they wouldn't include it. The way that this logo makes it a prominent feature makes it confusing to look at.

Have I missed something?
I didn't know you could own or copyright silhouettes?

I get someone probably owns the Opera House (although I would have thought it was owned by the government) and own images of it ' but skylines would be public domain?
