Down here in Columbus, a talk show on our main sports station 97.1 FM was discussing comments made by the new ownership that they would be open to changing the jerseys and logos so long as fans were open to it as well. The hosts even discussed changing the colors. Bunch of callers hit the airwaves with their varying opinions on what should or shouldn't be changed. Thought I'd post on here to see what other Browns fans think.
In my opinion, the jersey and the helmets worn by the players are classic and timeless. They should keep what they've got and only change if they introduce a third, alternate jersey that catches on big with the fans. But please, for the love of God, let's never have an alternate jersey as terrible as what the Seahawks introduced a few years ago. Players looked like giant glow in the dark, florescent, neon-green highlighters running around out there. Terrible.
The logo though ... I'm all for changing that. It's just a picture of a helmet. That's it. The helmets look good and timeless on the players, but not on a sports coat or any other gear. I'm really a fan of this guy here: http://idigitalcitizen.files.wordpress.com/2009/09/cleveland_browns-dog-1024x768.jpg?w=1024 It looks cool/badass while simultaneously being cartoony enough to draw in kids, gives love to the Dawg Pound and incorporates our team colors pretty well. Plus, there are no other team in the league that have a dog theme going. Who doesn't think dogs are cool and badass? They're man's best friend too for goodness sake.
As for changing the team colors, I can sum up how I feel about that in one word: blasphemy.
Your thoughts on this irrelevant, but fun, debate?
