Siskins New Name & Logo

Post by RocketGirl » Thu May 21, 2020 10:41 am

Waterloo has a new name and logo.

This is going to be controversial, but can anyone see what's wrong with this new logo?

They are now the KW Siskins.

Their crest should read, Kitchener Waterloo Siskins. not Waterloo Kitchener Siskins.

My OCD is very bothered by this. I'm guessing their theory is they're honouring Waterloo by putting it at the top, but it's wrong. It would have been much better if they designed a whole new logo, maybe even picked a new name.

And with one swoop of the pen.. A team with a tremendous history and traditión is snuffed out!! Great mové... NOT!!!

That is the one thing that this league has, well two things actually.. History and traditión! I am sure that will soon disappear as well with the types of decisions that have been made at the league level!

Really such a shame!!

1. How, by adding Kitchener, does it take away anything from the legacy?

2. The ones who complain the loudest about any of these things are the ones who don't seem to actually volunteer to help these teams keep on going...
