The Detroit Lions Have A New Logo

The Detroit Lions have been a sad, pathetic franchise for decades.  Last season they managed to lose every single game, setting a record for NFL futility.  You might assume that following such a treacherous season, the team would be pouring as much effort as possible into rebuilding the team, acquiring new talent and working towards respectability.  And you’d be wrong.  Apparently, the team decided that creating a new logo would be a good first step.

This logo change had been rumored for quite a while, but the team has remained tight-lipped regarding their new Leo.  My guess is that they were saving the reveal for the NFL Draft in April.  However, NFL.com apparently spilled the beans by putting a toy truck up for sale that contains the team’s new image.

While the logo is technically an improvement over the old one, it doesn’t exactly strike fear into the hearts of opponents.  I’d like to some teeth on that thing.  No blood?  No drool?  And why is it still blue?  In case you were wondering, the name of this Lion: Bubbles.  You have got to be kidding me.
