AIM: # 1 Posted on 2.9.03 2126.49 Reposted on: 2.9.10 2129.04 Click Here (sportsnet.ca) Well, it's different....... "The new logo, designed by Toronto-based Brandid, has a blue jay with a silver beak extending from the J in the word Jays. The three-dimensional metallic letters are white and silver surrounded by blue and black trim. Team caps will sport the bird with letter J." Promote this thread!

AIM: # 3 Posted on 2.9.03 2240.46 Reposted on: 2.9.10 2248.19 Will this lead to the Devil Rays being known as the Rays? How will we deal with the confusion of two teams known simply as "Sox?"

Well, if they think the current logo's dated, wait'll they see what they say about this one in a coupla years.

I don't mind the logo that much. It just means that my current Blue Jays stuff is now stylishly retro. Booyah! I do NOT like the powder-blue hats, though.

Well thank GOD that the logo was neither important NOR cherished, so they could change it!

At least they didn't drop "Blue"(of course how could they? They're owned by Labatt's for pete's sake...)

AIM: # 8 Posted on 3.9.03 0654.09 Reposted on: 3.9.10 0654.57 I'm happy about this. With the original logo, it always took me a second or two to put the blue jay's head together, starting from the eye, and then to the beak, and then around clock-wise. I also loathed the current one with the jay holding the bat, and just felt the maple leaf tattoo on its arm looked tacky. With this one, I like the colours of it, but am just not too in love with the lettering. I'll wait to judge the new uniforms when they don't have Trish Stratus modelling it for the cameras.

But the sky blue hat and the 3rd hat are just a tad too much.

Y!: # 10 Posted on 3.9.03 0846.22 Reposted on: 3.9.10 0848.00 Obviously, I gotta get me one of those dark jerseys, but on the whole the whole logo/jersey combo gets a big thumbs DOWN from me. When your "icon" team in the area (the Leafs) has such a classic look, why would you try to be a new and hip with yours if you are trying to sell more stuff? Even the Raptors unis are cooler that the new Blue Jays duds. They should've gone more retro instead of all "new".

Which of course bags the question. Why on earth would anyone steal anything from the Arizona Cardinals

I like the "Toronto" uni although their logo from a couple of logo's back was probably the best they've had.

It looked more like purple to me... almost like if they merged the Diamondbacks and Devil Rays... euwwwww. NHS: Swiping Arizona's players seemed to work for the Bucs.
