Miami Marlins Logo Is Hideous
We're Asking You To Come Up With Something Better
You would think multimillionaire art collector Jeffrey Loria would be able to come up with a decent logo for his soon-to-be-named Miami Marlins baseball team.
Something that represents Miami considering they’re going to be playing in their own stadium in the heart of the city for the first time in nearly two decades of existence as the Florida Marlins.
Something sleek and stylish with a hint of swagger. A logo that says South Beach as much as it says Little Havana.
A logo that looks toward the future of this city instead of pre-Miami Vice.
Instead, we’re getting an outdated logo looks like a cross between the Whataburger and McDonald’s logos.
Clearly this must be some kind of joke. A way to stir controversy before they officially announce the new logo on November 11 (read comments from my Facebook page below). Another attempt at screwing the fan base as they’ve been doing for years.
Adding to the mystery is that the Marlins have neither confirmed or denied that this logo is for real.
Perhaps the real logo will be done by Romero Britto (Don’t even think about it, Loria).
Miami Beach 411 is not happy
We spent $7,500 for the pair of seats because they forced us to buy a seating package for this year at the current stadium.
We plan to take our friends, clients and sources to enjoy the games with us where we will proudly show them the nice view of the downtown skyline directly behind the outfield wall.
Despite how much we loved the Orange Bowl, we are prepared to hop on the bandwagon of the new team and stadium.
We love the fact that they will now be the Miami Marlins instead of the Florida Marlins.
We can even look past the fact that our politicians bamboozled the stadium construction without voter input, sticking it to the taxpayer for the umpteenth time.
You see, we’re used to corruption. But we’re also used to aesthetics.
Our city may be rotten to the core, but at least it looks good on the surface. A quick drive across the MacArthur Causeway can confirm that (just don’t mind the homeless people beneath it).
That is why we’re going to do all we can to prevent this logo from being implemented.
We are inviting all our readers to submit their version of the Miami Marlins logo, which we will include in this story as we get them.
We will include your name and website, if you wish, or you can remain anonymous but that would defeat the purpose.
A designer at CBS Miami took 30 minutes to come up with the logo on the left, which blows away the leaked logo on the right.
We know there are a lot of talented graphic designers in South Florida, so we’re hoping we can come up with a nice collection of logos, which we will present to the Marlins on November 1 (or maybe even earlier depending on how this goes).
That will give them at least 10 days to look the logos over and maybe change their mind about what they had planned to release.
It’s a far-fetched idea because the Marlins have never listened to their fans, but you just never know.
And yes, we know the right people to submit the logos to at the Marlins front office. We paid good money for that access.
But we didn’t pay that money to wear ugly paraphernalia.
Our first and only entry comes from Jesus Deus.
