So let me get this straight.  You call the Fighting Hawks logo "the absolute worst hawk logo in the sports world" yet you buy merchandise and clothing with the logo on it and wear it "across the country."  ?

 

I’m trying to move on so like many of you are harassing us to do. The hawks New Era 3930 hats I own are probably the most comfortable hats I own. Did I know random strangers would react this way to my hat? You think I should love this logo and have pride in it after my first hand experiences? The logo is a joke

Still think fighting hawks name is lame as their are numerous other schools with some variant of the same name, one in our own hockey conference.  I would really like the logo were it not based on such an unimaginative nickname.

OK, I am calling BS on this.  There is no way anyone would mistake these two logos for each other.  Not even close.

I think its not close either, however the one factor we are not taking into account is the intelligence, or lack thereof, of most fans of teams from Philadelphia

As far as bird logos go, UND's is about as unique as it gets.

And here’s  a “unique” bikini model

has improved peoples' opinion of it.  In 5 years it will be more popular.  More and more people will let go or move on and the fiasco will be farther and farther in the past.

No...just no.

It will take more than 5 years to be more popular.

I still hate the logo,

but by my experiences of the surroundings of the football game last weekend, tailgaiting and post game activities, it is impossible to say acceptance is not gaining.

I talked with some people specifically about it in the Champs club tent, and some students while tailgating, and it was a kind of an embarrassed admittance that they hated it but... meh its what we got so it is what they wear.

That's sad, and very telling about the state of UND athletics fans and supporters.

 

 

What you just said makes absolutely no sense.  Next time, have a point.

So the outcry to have secondary logo started probably 2 minutes after the logo was announced.  I was in the camp of not doing that immediately so that UND could work on it's brand identity and have just one logo.  A secondary logo is likely going to happen.  I propose they don't make something totally new but just tweak the current logo.  The Hawk head in the ND is a unique look and I think it works.  But maybe UND could utilize just the Hawk head with a green or black (even grey) background without the "ND" as a background.  I especially think this type of logo would look great on the football helmets as you could have the hawk on both sides of the helmet facing forward.  Just a thought.

I agree and have heard similar sentiments.  A lot of people/students don’t like the logo, but still want to support UND so they sparingly buy some of the hawk gear.

UND Bookstore has a lot of nice hawk gear.  Huge apparel section there, including some nice kids stuff.  Sioux Shop and Scheels have some, but not as nice.

This would be a considerable improvement. Think Jets helmets, same gloss and kelly green shade. Same jerseys, substitute “North Dakota” for “New York”. Boom, done.

I hate the Philadelphia Eagles too much to get on board with this helmet.

It will absolutely MORE popular, but it still won't be widely accepted.

I've always thought it'll take a generation. Basically, all the kids who were born with FH will be the ones to first fully embrace it.

You struggling with reading comprehension today? The point was clear. He doesn't like it, but it is what it is and he feels like that sentiment is becoming the consensus.

I have moved on from the Fighting Sioux, but will never wear anything that prominently displays the new crap logo.  Never.
