Funny, the new Elks logo kind of reminds me of the Als' old logo from the early 1970s (in its simplicity or design?).

I like the Elks logo. I don't understand the old Als' logo or their current one.

3downnation.com is asking readers to rank the nine team logos. Call me a homer, but I ranked the B.C. logo highest , followed by the Elks, Stampeders and Riders. I ranked Montreal's stylized bird logo in the shape of an M the worst. (I just figured it out now.)

Re: Eskimos: change your name

The alouette bird, namesake of the football team, is also known as the horned lark. That old Alouette logo was intended to be a caricature of the profile of an alouette bird. It was also 1970 when it debuted so art form of the day may have come into play. Groovy baby. :wink:

The new logo depicts an alouette in flight. It also takes the shape of the letter M. I suppose what makes it different is instead of a small logo on each side of the helmet they put one large logo on the top of the helmet with the wings sweeping down the sides.

Re: Eskimos: change your name

I voted as well.

Best: Hamilton, Montreal
Pretty good: BC, Edm, Cal, Tor
So-so: Sask, Ott
Worst: Wpg

Hard to love that Winnipeg logo!

I am glad that Edm changed their name. It was clearly the right decision IMO. Elks works for me, though I was coming around to the idea of Evergreens. Not too many teams named after trees!
