Opinion

The old logo was relatively good. It had a recognizable typographic style and it stroke an interesting balance of looking like both a newspaper and sports-related logo. The new logo is less newspaper and more sports, which is not bad, since the site is not a newspaper, obvs., but maybe now it just looks like a generic sports brand that could be a gym, an apparel line, an energy drink, or the latest Nike Graphic Identity Group logo. Nonetheless, the result is a handsome, solid, wordmark, except for the “NA” pair, which was very nicely solved in the past logo but, here, the counter space calls for more attention than it should. The site and new style of social media posts do make it all work nicely together.

Thanks to James Motter for the tip.
