Looks like a practice jersey more than anything you would play in.

crap... I bet thats what we're treated to... similar, but just different enough to render our old jerseys visibly obsolete.

I hate freaking "rbk"

Excitement for hockey in Q-C heating up

By Don Doxsie | Friday, June 15, 2007 No comments posted. | Rate this article | Default | Large
The design of the Quad-City Flames’ new logo wasn’t really much of a surprise or a secret.
The American Hockey League team’s new logo was included in an e-mail sent to patrons of The Mark of the Quad-Cities on Thursday morning. And as co-owner Kevin Murphy stood waiting to pull the drapes off the logo at Sully’s Pub in Davenport on Thursday night, he was wearing a black shirt with the logo emblazoned on it. He suddenly realized it and slapped his hand over his heart to cover it.

The new logo — a large red

Q-C with flames flickering off the back — is very much like that of the parent Calgary Flames. It’s exactly what almost everyone expected.

What was unexpected was that more than 200 people would jam into the small northeast Davenport establishment to witness the unveiling.

“Hopefully, this is an indication of what we’re going to see when the season gets here,” team president Tim Taylor said.

The gathered fans may have been there as much for the free hors d’ouvres and souvenirs, but they applauded wildly both before and after the unveiling.

“I think this just shows that the excitement for hockey is back in the Quad-Cities,” Murphy said.

“We really didn’t advertise this thing that well and look at the turnout. I was excited when I pulled into the parking lot and saw how many people were here.”

Both Taylor and Murphy said they already have seen evidence of the renewed enthusiasm in season ticket sales.

Murphy said many fans signed up for tickets at Thursday’s gathering. He thinks many of those who had Quad-City Mallards tickets in the glory days of the 1990s are drifting back to the new team.

“We’re seeing them come back from every level,” he said. “It’s not just the middle-class fans or the upper-class fans. They’re all coming back.”

As another poster said, a dragon or something would have been a little more original and probably a heck of a lot cooler.

The RBK jersey style just looks like they're trying to push a more 'modern' look onto us fans.........what is wrong with the old-time look??

Not a big fan.
Old time looks get old.

Whats wrong with the old stadiums/arenas that are demolished?

You have to change eventually.

Maybe it's just me, but I really liked the logo that they used in Omaha and it's too bad the organization didn't try and do something in that vein in the new location. Not that the new jersey designs are awful....just as someone said above, they look a little....lazy imho.

Altho maybe someone can confirm (as I really can't remember why I think I heard this somewhere) but didn't Rbk say they wanted to get away from cartoon type logos and go more to text or something? This could just be a half drunk pseudo remembering so ignore at will....

yeah, I was hoping for something a little bit more orignial. look at the iowa stars - it's generally the same theme as the dallas stars, yet it's done in their own style. i would have preferred something a little bit more creative and original.

At least, however, there is another logo coming. our left shoulder patch is TBD, which leads me to believe it's probably going to be a logo that pays homage to the quad city mallards.

No, it is not just you. In fact, I would go as far as to suggest that the Knights Logo was among the best soports logos ever—especially within the past fifteen years.

I like the simplicity and clear tie-in with the parent organization. But I'm not a big enough hockey fan to buy a jersey, so my opinion doesn't matter that much.

my opinion on the logo is that it is ok. i would have liked something different, but what we got looks good. another thing is most (if not all) ahl clubs that share the same name as their nhl team have similar logos.

Pretty massive difference between run-down arenas and hockey sweaters/logos, no?

Or do you think the Leafs, Canadiens, Blackhawks, Rangers, Red Wings and Bruins should all change their logos just because they are old?

Just because RBK decides to go with a new look for the jersey design doesn't automatically mean it's cooler or newer or more hip........just means it's different.

Different isn't always better just because it's newer.

one thing we all have to remember the jersey designs we see are based off pictures taken with a cell phone. lets hold of judgment until all is said and done.

that stems to way back to the early days of hockey. players didn't have any kid of upper body protection and they literally wore sweaters, as the last Vancouver team to win a cup displays

Logo is team idenity. That neccassarily could never get old because it's a image that they are reconized by.

But jersey wise, updating to an better fabric which can give an advantage to players over these older jerseys is never a bad thing. Almost all leagues have changed their jerseys fabric one time or another in the past 30 years.

It's been done in the past before after all.

True. That still doesn't make the vertical stripes a good idea.

Improving the fabric is one thing; switching from a good design to a poor one is another. There is absolutely nothing about the physical garment that requires it to be tacky.

I wish we could have been a little more creative with the logo.
