That’s definently a rip-off. Ugh, why would we want to rip off a soccer logo. Yuck

I'm starting to think Cassie has a problem with soccer.

Not even close. @praha should have been put on staff at the club for this effort.

Cale Morton as the body model?

What else was squeezed on there?

The quarter-by-quarter scores from all 12 premierships, pictures of the 10 greatest MFC marks and goals, and the names of every player who played more than 100 games for the club, along with their signatures. Usual logo stuff.

I think the DNA of all premiership captains was also encoded onto it.

Thought it might have been something like this

Never said it had to be Cassy, all i said is that it is my favourite.

Nor did I suggest you did. Like I said previously, I think it’s GREAT they’ve bought him back. I grew up with him. I would just like to see a return of the 1989 one on some merchandise. Those headbands in the 90’s very pretty groovy.

As a kid I loved what I think of as the 'hair on fire' version. Not so much now.

I can see our current one but with a demon instead of the monogram. That way it has the best of both worlds, with the demon, and also the word 'Melbourne' being in there.

It's a wonderful hybrid of Cale, Old Dee and our traditional mascot @faultydet

How it hasn't been adopted yet is beyond me. Perhaps we should add the club name in Comics Sans font?

The logo should be perched upon a very expensive desk if that addition were to be made. Or at least have a whiteboard as it's  background.

I thought it looked too much like Batman. I’d hate to see him make a return.

Can't un-see that now!

I wouldn't want that demon now either. Something more like the 80s one but in contrasting colours, sort of silhouetted where the monogram is now.

This goes off topic a bit, but I wouldn't mind seeing retro heroes being put on tee-shirt lines. The gawn and Jones nerd tees were a hot commodity last season. Would love a flower, stynes, barassi and Lyon tee to be created.

That would be awesome. I like how the 90’s “cheeky demon” made a reappearance. I just think the 1989 logo has been forgotten when in my opinion, it was one of the best non demon emblems we had.

Wouldnt I’d be great if (and a possible money spinner for the club) if they rereleased some of the old logos? Maybe once a year the fans vote for the logo on some club merch then deposit $/pre-purchase some gear?

I’d buy some of it again, would be great to see some of the older stuff back out again rather than just the new dangled stuff.

Exactly. I think it’s time for the 1989 to make a reappearance.

Had to throw these two strapping demons in the mix.

Although I dont wear PJ’s anymore, I’d love to see a return of the old demon pyjamas. They were awesome. maybe also some more kid themed stuff.

I’d love to see some women’s singlets and sleeveless tops to wear when going out. Imagine the guys I’d come snare with one of those!

Posted (edited)

those patches posted by dedokter - but especially the first one - both get my vote as, like our current logo, they're only red and blue

no white in our emblem thanks

our current logo is my favourite of all of ours tho

pure class:

Schwab's might have been better without the trident and southern cross.

The logo above would have been an exercise in trying to find the balance between the perceived desires of a client and not wanting to be judged on the horrific end result.

The bane of any graphic designer.
