Lions unveil new logo, hoping for more bite

Postby madaslives911 » Fri Jan 30, 2009 4:15 am

During a recent Town Hall meeting at Ford Field with roughly 400 season ticket holders, Detroit Lions team president Tom Lewand suggested that changes to the team’s Honolulu blue uniform could be coming as soon as the 2010 season.

According to an Oakland Press (Mich.) blog, Lewand said that fans should, “Stay tuned,” for uniform changes that will be “evolutionary, not revolutionary.” The NFL deadline to change uniform schemes passed in November, so no changes can be made for next season.

Ultimately, the Lions may go with a darker version of their trademark Honolulu blue and a possible makeover of their Lions logo.

Of course, changing the uniforms is only mere window dressing when your team is an 0-16 punch line. However, it seems like the team gets it that the fans couldn’t be more disillusioned, hence having the meeting with Lewand on hand as well as new coach Jim Schwartz and General Manager Martin Mayhew.

“I think what fans walked out of there feeling was there’s finally some direction and some unity in the front office,” said Lions radio play-by-play announcer Dan Miller, who attended the meeting. “They’re not going to waver in that direction. There seems to be a coherent plan that they can wrap their hands around and move forward.”

Uhmm.. yeah maybe a change in uniform could bring good luck. And a mean lion's image would be cool... or perhaps they should get a Feng Shui expert for some guidance. B-)

The only real change I would like to see is a logo attatch with the initials of a new owner.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

what they should do is put one of those little yellow boxes with a black L in it next to anything that says "Detroit Lions" like you have the option to here at the cafe.

What they really need to do is draft a wide receiver with their first round pick! :-)

When in crisis.... blame the logo.

Is it possible to design helmets that look like this less the Santa Hat?

Lions retire black jerseysThe Detroit News
DETROIT -- Lions president Tom Lewand confirmed Monday that the Detroit Lions have discarded their black jerseys.

The Lions will go back to using their throwbacks as their alternate uniform under the league's "third uniform program."
The Lions' regular uniforms still will have black trim.

"We had the black jerseys for a few years," Lewand said. "I really like the throwbacks and I think the players like them and we'll be able to use those now as our alternate uniforms a couple times a year."

The black jerseys were introduced by former Lions president Matt Millen. Because last season was the team's 75th anniversary, the Lions used their throwbacks for two games in substitute for their black jerseys.

It is still possible that the Lions will have more significant changes to their logo/uniforms. But those changes aren't expected until the 2010 season.


I hope that would make them start winning some games. :-)

I actually liked the black jerseys, I mean don't get me wrong, I do my best to avoid watching the Lions when I can, but still...
