It's been pretty disappointing, reading most fans' reaction to the release of the new logos and unis. I've read and heard a lot of "I can't tell any difference", and "If they were going to change it, they should have changed everything", and even "I liked the old logo better".
First of all, if you can't spot the differences (and VAST IMPROVEMENTS) between these two logos, then you lose all credibility on the subject:
Secondly, to anyone who says a tweaking wasn't needed, I say I was 17 before I realized that the gap between Bubbles's paw and mouth wasn't his cycloptic eye. Moreover, the last time anybody tried a clean-sheet redesign with a Detroit franchise was the Teal Nightmare that all Pistons fans had to endure. If they'd listened to all the yahoos out there, today the Lions' logo would be some heinous chartruese-and-black roaring lion, with blood-soaked fangs and a cheerleader riding on the back. I mean, hey, it'd look great airbrushed onto the side of a Ram Van, but within weeks we'd be groaning at the cheesiness of it all and itching for the next redesign. The mild refresh that the Lions did was masterfully concieved and executed, and they updated both the logo and the uniforms with a modern, clean, consistently-styled look. Yet, it honors and carries forward the 75-year tradition and image of the Lions: strong, clean, and classy--win or lose.
