Not many in Detroit ever liked the Black jerseys and once people realized that we could not wear the throwbacks because of the black jersey there was even more against it.

A final leap...
If it proves true and the Lions update their look, I give Lewand, newly appointed team president, a lot of credit for attempting to turn the page and start a much different tradition -- one that includes winning some games. He remains mum on the subject, but the Lions are sending strong signals that "Leaping Leo" and their Honolulu blue and silver colors are about to be retired.

First, the Lions are conducting a clearance sale of their current inventory of jerseys. Second, the team announced Tuesday that it has agreed to a new 10-year deal with MainGate, Inc., to be the exclusive retail and merchandising company for the organization....

...If ever a team should change its logo and colors and make a clean break from the past, it makes complete sense to do it in the aftermath of an 0-16 season. It makes further sense for the Lions to introduce an updated look and color palette in April at the NFL draft.

Imagine the No. 1 draft pick -- either quarterback Matthew Stafford, left tackle Jason Smith or linebacker Aaron Curry -- putting on a new-look Lions uniform. The draft is the perfect time to unveil the new look. There's a new coach, a new front-office regime and a new face of the franchise with that No. 1 pick.

The argument the Lions shouldn't dare mess with tradition is ridiculous. What tradition? The tradition of one playoff win in 44 years of ownership under William Clay Ford Sr.? The tradition of never reaching the Super Bowl? The tradition of not having won an NFL title since 1957?

The Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons all have winning traditions and world championships in their not-too-distant past. The Lions can make no such claims.

It's high time for the Lions to let go of the tradition of losing -- and the colors that remind everyone of 0-16.....

New Detroit logo features fiercer, leaping lion
In wake of 0-16 season, Detroit changes insignia to make Lion leap more

Detroit has added teeth to its new Lions logo. Only time will tell if the product on the field also has teeth.

The franchise revealed subtle changes to the logo and how the word “Lions” is spelled out during a news conference Monday attended by dozens of fans.

Detroit stumbled to the NFL’s first 0-16 season last year and has the first pick Saturday in the NFL draft.

The leaping lion appears more fierce, while the team name features an italicized slant.

The team says the changes are consistent with its “sense of mission and direction.”

“We stand firmly committed to improving the team on the field,” team president Tom Lewand said. “That success is always the most determinative factor of any NFL brand.”

Some changes also have been made to the team’s uniforms. New trim lines have been added, and the logo is above the numerals on the jerseys.

Helmets now feature the new logo on each side. It’s the most significant change since 1961, when the logo originally was placed on helmets.

The team’s Honolulu blue, white and black colors remain unchanged.

“The new identity retains many important aspects of our history in terms of our primary mark and our colors,” Lewand said. “However, the evolution allows us to present our Lions brand and visual identity in new, versatile and distinctive ways.”
