Nothing gets a good and intense discussion going on the various social media outlets like any announcement of the Philadelphia Eagles doing anything. As we slide into the back half of June, there’s been discussions about what might happen with James Harden now (and if the 76ers will ever win a title again), but conversations of a sudden Phillies resurgence will always play second fiddle to the guys in midnight green… even if the news doesn’t seem to be football-related.
Shortly, after lunchtime on the East Coast, the Eagles announced that they had tweaked the wordmark for their logo. Take a look.
It didn’t take long for the reaction to flood Twitter’s airwaves.
As you might imagine, the members of Philadelphia Eagles Nation have a lot to say.
The City of Brotherly Love has a rich history in all sports, but before it’s anything else, Philly is football country. Don’t take our word for it though. We’ll let 94 WIP-FM’s Eliot Shorr-Parks give you the rundown.
So, we’re not alone in stating that the old logo was better, right? Sure, nothing can be done about it now, but just for kicks, let’s look at what some of the fans had to say, shall we?
We’ll restate. Philadelphia loves the Sixers, Phillies, and Flyers, but there’s no doubt about it. Nothing moves the needle like the Birds do. It didn’t take long for the buzz surrounding a great offseason and a nice showing by Jalen Hurts at OTAs to give way to the outrage by some of the fan base over the organization’s decision to cancel minicamp and the six practices that come along with it.
Some call it insanity. Others see it as passion. All the rest of us want to know is why we didn’t get to vote on this wordmark. This looks like something we’d see from an amateur startup company that’s still looking to build a brand. The challenge flag should have been tossed on this one.
