    OK, not that anyone around here probably cares, but looks like the Cards may be getting an Extreme Makeover: Logo Edition.

    I've heard of this...I didn't think it was true though.

    That logo is downright ugly, I hope thats not what comes along with that new stadium.

    I like everything about the current design except for the state flag on the uni.

    Why not just come up with a new nickname/mascot or whatever they call it.
    The name Cardinals actually was used because the most popular franchise
    in town by far was the St.Louis Cardinals (remember the team moved from St.Louis) and the football team was hoping the baseball teams popularity would rub off on them.. What on earth does Cardinals have to do with Arizona? Just like the Titans changed their nickname after leaving the nation's O&G capital and moving to Tenn, the Arizona NFL team should come up with something origional, meaningful, and relavant for its geography and culture. Actually I think they were called the Cardinals when they were in Chicago before moving to Missouri, but still Arizona could do much better than
    Cardinals.

    I love their new stadium. You never know about the Cardinals. They might be a fairly decent team once Green gets his players in there and all. He's a good coach.

    The Arizona Cactuses?

    The Arizona Humidity?

    I actually always liked their helmets, but thought they should upgrade the face mask to a red face mask.
     
  8. It's not like there are no Northern Cardinals in Arizona. Thats like saying if the Redskins moved to San Antonio they'd have to change their name.

    That's no good - as they like to remind you out there, it's "a dry heat". But
    you've got the right idea. I mean the desert has it's own kind of beauty, its
    fascinating - there has got to be gobs of neat names they could use.

    haha thats actually kinda funny. how can the name of a team symbolizing the scalping and torturing of indians really fit in to any location. Any of you remember that controversy that the red skins were having with all the native americans demanding the name of the team be changed ? i think it was 2 years ago.

    If anyone was ever in need of a change of logo, it is definitely the Cardinals. Heck!..that mean-spirited nasty looking thing is an insult to cardinals!!

    Very cool Vinny.

    A team based on the Phoenix would be cool. Though i dont think the Arizona Phoenixes are a good idea :) I can just imagine sports casters trying to say phoenixes.

    Maybe the Arizona Firebirds.

    hah. not suprised. I think you are correct with the Phoenix idea. I like the new Suns design.

    Eventually you have to upgrade. Unless you are the cowboys or something. You have to think of it as a business. And a business that sells merch. New logo = money money money money....money.

    I like the retractable field idea that the Cardinals have. That sure would work at Reliant Stadium.

    Like Vinny said that first logo was actually done by someone on the chris creamer message boards. They are supposed to unveil their new updated logo tomorrow. Don't expect anything drastic...think 49ers and Dolphins.

    The red and white jerseys look cool but the helmet logo is no good. Cardinals are red not blue, ditch the blue jersey.

    Way too busy for my taste......there's nothing wrong with their current uniforms (IMO).
