    I hate the Knights, but I always thought they had a really nice logo.... this thing, this is fucked.... The original wordmark was a beautiful piece of typography... and this.... dull as hell...

    Just had to google the old one which is much better. I've never really judged their old logo, but it's actually pretty intelligently designed. No idea why they're switching to a cheap looking design when they probably have one of the most artistic ones left in the comp.

    Thought this was going to be a gee up thread with a photo of a few of the Newcastle boys trading powdery goods from the back of their Toyota corollas.

    They are on a cost cutting mission though.

    It's a sad state of affairs.. I go to Newcastle quite a bit so I'm always passing their logo in Broadmeadow.. it was right on the mark, the look, the feel, everything.. now it just looks corporate... I mean I'm not against the minimalist trend, but it's rugby league ffs, needs character

    It's the sad way our game is going brother. They are moving to American type logos - 2-3 colours and 2d graphics - as opposed to the traditional crest and animals we used to use around here.

    Look at the most recent entrants to the comp still in it today - Knights, Warriors, Broncos, Cowboys, Storm, Raiders, Titans... they are mascots you associate with American sports teams, not ours.

    Every logo across every industry is moving to simplify their logo, not just NRL.

    But agree with the americanisation generally, fuck that shit

    Credit must go to us and Parramatta for keeping things as traditional as possible.

    Also some teams like in the AFL like S. Kilda, Melbourne, Carlton and Collingwood.

    Even the Richmond Tigers had a bloody good logo before they changed it... it used to remind me of the Balmain Tigers logo!

    Yeah that's dope.. I like the Sea Eagles logo also.. even the Roosters logo is nice... Knights can make all the changes they like but they can't hide from their shitness!! they got rid of the only good thing about the club

    I can see us go back the logo we used in the 90's.

    I'd be happy if we reverted to our Berries logo.
    Simple, timeless and classic.

    Chloe told the club the old logo had to go.......

    An upturned silver bucket full of dogshit would more aptly represent the current Knights I'd reckon, should've gone with that.
