This is my favorite logo so far looks really clean 

 

 

 

For me, it's too generic and mixes too much symbolism (the "W", the capitol building, the wolf, the stars from I assume the flag). A"W" with just the wolf silhouette would be better for Redwolves, although still not one I'd be crazy about. The "W" with the capital building and the stars would lean heavily towards military. Putting them all together into one logo doesn't really improve either, imo.

Not sure I've seen any "fierce wolf" logo concepts so far. Well, there was this one:, and I wouldn't exactly call it fierce lol:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instead of a cartoon style artwork what about a true photorealistic wolf? Is there any team logo that has even tried that?

Not this specifically but something like it perhaps.

Probably doesn’t work as a football logo, but I like subtle and abstract, something like this...

 

 

 

This is a little more like it...not quite there yet but is better than most so far imo.

I am more in line with this thinking...like you said, not this specific image but something that is either very strong graphically or actually goes a more realistic route.

 Hearing idiots like this continue to refer to the LOGO as racist disgusts me. The name? I get it. The logo? Utterly ridiculous. A realistic portrayal of a Native American, proposed by a NA and approved for use by the National Congress of NAs called an "old, racist logo." Mind-blowing. 


that’s the type of people we’re dealing with. 
 

many don’t seem to know anything about any of it. Just want to tell people what to think 🤷‍♂️

Generally things with that level of detail don't work as logos. You can't make out the details from a distance anyway, it doesn't translate well to grayscale or limited-color documents, etc.

Can't wait till we lose on gameday, and our opponents bust out the confused and sad wolf/doggo memes.

Makes sense.That explains why all team logos I can think of are more cartoonish than realistic.

 

Back to the drawing board.

The fact that we have to change the name sucks. I’ve always thought Warriors was a logical fallback plan. Good alliteration, can connect it with military, it works. It’s not great, but no New name is going to be great. Redwolves sounds like the name of a minor league hockey team. If I were advising Dan, I’d tell him to go with Warriors, take the feather off of these GORGEOUS unis and call it a day...this way we keep a connection to the past while moving forward.

This is just pathetic.  Seriously, what are people thinking???

 

Lol, people know change is coming so they’re just having fun brainstorming/coming up with their own ideas. Don’t got to be so harsh mate

I'm assuming it's supposed to be howling, but it looks more like it's gonna gum you to death lol...

 

The graphic design work is good, though--that holds true to a lot of these proposed logos. But the concepts need work.

I absolutely love the story behind RedTails and was gung ho behind it on day zero but as I had more time to think about it it just stopped working for me.

 Yes, the Tuskegee Airmen! Totally dig that, however as a team name it’s terrible. Redtail is something you have when you get your ass kicked. Not a good look...

That dcsportsxp rendition looks nice, one of the best helmet logos I've seen so far.

 

I don't know if that's supposed to be white or silver but I think silver and burgundy could look nice.

That R logo is still the best thing I've seen....I'd like to see an update with a Burgundy/Gold coloring

That’s the thing with naming the team RedWolves.  You’re going to have to go away from the burgundy & gold color scheme if its going to look any good.  Like in that pic which does look good.  But reports are saying they’re sticking with burgundy & gold so I honestly don’t think RedWolves is it.

Why? Redwolves is awful. This is a franchise worth over $3 billion, not some Single-A baseball team. Let’s not cheese this up


Why? Not sure. Probably many different reasons for many different people. Certain things mean different thing to individuals. But, the name Redwolves definitely has stirred up a devotion and hunger that other names haven’t.
