After the new logo made its way on line, Twitter users provided their reactions. And most of Twitter was in agreement. For some reason, when viewed straight on, the Seahawk no longer seems like a particularly fierce bird.
Many Twitter users felt like the new logo reminded them of a few other things. For instance, some thought the Seahawk looks more like a particular bird from the Muppets. However, this character is an eagle, so the team from Philadelphia can't be too happy that Seattle is encroaching on their territory.
Someone else felt like the logo looked more like this. So if you ever want to beat the Seahawks, just put a trail of Reese's Pieces on the ground. While they're all distracted, you can score several easy touchdowns.
When you're a football team, you want to project an image of toughness and determination. It just makes the team seem more intimidating. What you don't want as a team is to have the image of an easily-agitated talking octopus.
On the one hand, you don't want a logo that looks like a character from an animated kids movie. On the other hand, at least he looks like Anger. If he looked like Sadness or Fear, it would be even worse.
Most sports logos are simply pictures of an angry animal or of whatever their team name happens to be. But why not have a logo that teaches people the workings of the female reproductive system? Perhaps that time has finally come.
For some people, the logo made them feel like their eyes were burning and they needed to wash them out. Perhaps Seattle should have picked something else for the logo. For instance, the eyewash station sign seen here might have been a better pick.
This is the perfect picture to describe that feeling when you unveil your team's new logo, but even your biggest fans aren't into it. Perhaps fans can take solace in remembering that it's merely an alternate logo, not a replacement. Despite the new logo, the Seahawks will continue on.
