UA’s MLB logo placement and the NFL

first_img 0 BBTV Initialisms Suck andrewharrington BRice16 Location:San Antonio, Texas If a supplier logo has to go on the front, howabout putting it where the shield is now, and moving the shield to above the NOB like how MLB does it?  I’m sure Nike would love that, since it would get their logo placement directly on top of the team wordmarks (for most teams), which theoretically gets people to associate one with the other. 2,227 posts sayahh By BJ Sands, December 8, 2016 in Sports Logo News Recommended Posts 5,026 Earlier this week, MLB and Under Armour announced their new agreement/partnership. The part that will make this deal stand out is the placement of the UA logo on the upper right chest, which is a major departure from Majestic having its mark on the left cuff. 3,735 Grand Pooba of Walksylvania Share on other sites Members 5,392 Share this post Link to post Link to post 17,998 Link to post 22,252 posts 73 4,322 Share on other sites The Steelers’ and Lions’s striping is thicker than Iowa’s or Ohio State’s, but the point is well taken. They’d be wise to alter the size of it to make it fit better. Unfortunately, I don’t know if a chest logo is realistic for the NFL, given the location of the league logo, captain patch, and any special patches added to the uniform (memorial, Super Bowl, etc.). Share on other sites The NFL’s contracts with the apparel companies has always specified logo placement on the sleeves, dating back to when they first inserted the language in the 1990s. The current deal with Nike also has the logo only on the sleeve of all sideline gear, rather than the front.  BJ Sands 73 Members The difference with football is that there are currently two logos on the jersey, where in other sports there is just one (or, in the NBA’s case, none). So the debate would be, is one logo on the front more valuable than two logos? I would say that in football, the sleeve placement is more valuable because in the average photo of a play, you can see many sleeves, but may not see the front/chest of more than one player. I think Nike would choose two logos per jersey over one, regardless of placement.  Link to post Runnin’ down a dream Link to post Speaking of the NBA, the ‘no logos’ thing will change next year when Nike takes over. I take it will be on left side (if only they hadn’t moved the league logo from the left front to the center rear, it’d be placed below it, like the retail jerseys would be).

MJWalker45 UA’s MLB logo placement and the NFL Share this post SportsLogos.Net center_img Sports Logo News While I believe having the maker’s marks in front is an aesthetic downgrade for the NBA and MLB, I think this could be a positive for the NFL. Just look at how Nike has to handle the striping for the Steelers and Lions, and then compare it to Iowa and Ohio State. Because the swoosh is on the chest, Iowa and OSU have fuller stripes that just look better, and I hope that comes to the NFL soon. The NFL would hate it though, because they gotta “protect the shield” johnnysama 701 CFL/NPB/MLB/NHL/NFL Fan johnnysama 867 Share on other sites Location:Washington State 58 minutes ago, andrewharrington said: Posted December 10, 2016 Favourite Logos:Vancouver Canucks current/1980s/90s era, LA Kings purple/gold and Gretzky era, Mariners 80s and current, BC Lions 1980s, and Saskatchewan Roughriders 1970s/80s Posted December 12, 2016 Share this post Sign in to follow this   867 Thoughts?

Posted December 13, 2016 This continues a trend we’ve seen in pro sports with Nike soon putting its mark on the front of NBA jerseys, a first for the league. My hope is that this means when the Nike deal with the NFL, it moves the swoosh to the chest, where it is in college football. 0 Share on other sites 0 Share this post 18 hours ago, BRice16 said: dont care 5,392 17,998 Location:CLE · IND · PDX Forums Home All Activity 17,998 5,184 posts The issue with stripes is on the teams and not Nike. Look at San Francisco,  so much empty space. I actually prefer Nike keep the logos on the sleeves.  Otherwise the chest will be cluttered during the Super Bowl for some teams. Not as bad as this photo but the space blocked off will be about the same.  4,322 UA’s MLB logo placement and the NFLlast_img
