View Full Version : Vikes need new logo

Personally u guys may think different but i think the vikes need new designed jerseys and a new logo on their helmets. I mean we've had the same jerseys and the same logo on our helmets for 40 years.

I'll be the first that the Packers need one, too, but most Packer fans would scream if you mentioned it.

I don't like the idea much of NFC North teams changing too much. We're too storied and historic of franchises and rivalries to give in to "flavor of the month" uniform/logo changes a la Denver or Seattle or cookie cutter shoulder panel designs like Arizona and Buffalo.

But I remember when Wisconsin football used to have a very block-letterish "W" on their helmet, and then they revised it to today's modern "motion 'W'" design. I could see both the Packers and Vikings perhaps considering minor changes that would update the Viking horn or the G and make it more modern or streamlined.

Don't see it happening anytime soon, but it's a thought.

they just got new helmets. I think all of the latest re-designs are pretty ugly. maybe a black viking.

Well detroit got new jerseys...and they turned out to be some of the ugliest ones ive ever seen. Part of me likes the idea...Part of me dosnt.... SO much history to our team, logo and jerseys....That to change now....would just be dumb....But then again....It would be cool to see the Vikes rock some new ones...But imma say i rather keep what we got untill we get a new stadium...then we can discuss new jerseys

we dont need a new logo we just need to use some different uniform colors 1 or 2 games a year like the yellow or black jerseys,or maybe go all purple

I would be fine with new jerseys as long as we KEEP THE NORSEMAN and KEEP THE HORN ON THE HELMETS. Then I might think that it would be cool.

What the heck else would we have as a logo? A piece of lefsa or lutafisk?

Our helmets are perfect, dont touch them!!!!! I love the horn, one of the best in all of football.

If someone wanted to tweak the jerseys a little that is fine, especially the road ones. I would also consider a special black jersey for limited games with a matching black helmet (of course still with the same horns on the helmet though, that must stay).

LuckyVike
08-18-2005, 04:55 AM
I love our oldschool look. My favorite part of our uni's by far is the horn on the helmet. IMO, our helmets and Steelers' helmets are the coolest in the league.

I like your uni's 6 Kings but I would want the horn on both helmets, Change the shade of purple to darker, and put the three stripes on the very end of the sleeves like on our purple uni's now.

MMMMMM, lefsa. Now that is an idea I might go for. Put some butter and brown sugar on it, and roll it up. Damn, now im hungry.

I vote for a rolled up piece of lefsa to replace the horns on the helmet.

Our uniforms are perfect. No need for change, but I also like the Bears and Packers uni's. I think I just like more simple uniforms, because I really liked the old Cardinals uniforms.

the vikings, packers, and bears are the historic teams in the nfc north, detroit has barely even been in the playoffs. detroit plain sucks and they jerseys are ugly. but the broncos jerseys are the ugliest not to mention the beagles and cleveland and tampa bay, and san fran and the jets, and the bungles and the rams, not to mention the chargers, sehawks and the GREEN BAY PACKERS are the worst ugliest cheese colored uniforms even worse than the rest of them

We do have THE BEST helmets in the NFL by far. The reason we haven't changed uni's is because the ones we have are already among the best. I would like to see us where the black jerseys once or twice though. They'd be nice w/ black pants. I saw on ebay a purple jersey w/ the stripes over the shoulder like the away jerseys. That was pretty nice, I thought we might be changing to that this year. But I'll always love the Vikings, no matter what their uniform looks like.

V-Unit
08-18-2005, 06:00 PM
Keep them till we win the Superbowl, then change the yellow to gold, and add purple pants, gold pants, and gold jerseys. As much as everyone loves black, I just don't see the vikings rocking black unis before they wear yellow/gold ones. Black isn't even close to one of our team colors.

I think Gold jerseys and pants with purple trim would look very sleek and also be unique.

Still, keep our current unis till we win a Superbowl.

No matter what we do with our unis I feel our helmet must never change. They can change the colors but to change the design would be horrid.

No offense, jos, but when I look at the Viking head on the helmet, I think of the old Buccaneers helmets, which should go down in history as one of the worst uniforms ever...

Current uni's are still some of the best in the league. If I'd change anything it would be the pants.

And the ugliest uni's by far are the Packers, they look like a bunch of fat girl scouts.

The purple on purple is nasty. The cards went red on red and they looked like something off "Stormship troopers" or Arena football.

if the vikes change the logo on their helmets it needs to have something more menacing. if not, leave it be. The 49ers have screwed up their jerseys going with the gold instead of the less polsihed look they used to have.

Having seen some of the gold moss jerseys around town i think that would be nasty too because it would remind me too much of the Oregon Ducks new jerseys which make them look like giant tennis balls on the field.

Personally i think the vikes should go the route of Boise State and change the turf from green to a new color...saaaay purple, that would royally screw up the visitors' vision

HEY JOSDIN00, try a pewter, dk grey, or a metal like finish as the base color for the helmet. Try making the helmet look like a Viking helmet, just to see what it could look like.

I kind of like the white base but I don't like the MV for the logo. I like horns better.

Yeah, I've been there. I stumbled across it when I was searching for a blank helmet to use as a template for the helmets I make. It is a great site. His research into the old helmets is pretty impressive.


Oh, and Snow, the attempts I've made at pewter just look like grey. I can't get the reflections right yet, so it may be a bit before you see any helmets like you described.

snowinapril's idea of a "real" Viking helmet would be badazz, I'd like to see a prototype!

#5 is cool also, but just have the MV on one side like the Steelers.

Really though, I'm content with what they have.

New helmets? Really? I didn't notice that.

Anyways, I like our logo and our unis! Keep em the way they are.

Yah they changed them from opaque purple to a metallic purple about 4-5 years back, around the same time where everyone was switching to metallics (Rams, etc.) I like them the way they are now, but I wouldn't change anything else, other than try wearing different pant combinations.

I would be interested to see them wear all-purple.

Someday they will change.
Sooner than later I think.
It is a matter of promoting the team and increasing revenue.
It is just smart buisness.
Soon all teams will have multiple old/new uni's to wear.
Many do already.

And the Vikes front office wants a piece of that merchandise money too.

Change is a good thing.

Old school Charger's and Patriot's uniforms for the win.

Leave the Vikings Uniform alone, just because it hasn't changed in 45 years doesn't mean we need to change it now.

What's the point?

Personally u guys may think different but i think the vikes need new designed jerseys and a new logo on their helmets. I mean we've had the same jerseys and the same logo on our helmets for 40 years.

SACRILEGE!!!!

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG with the Vikings helmet logo! It is PERFECT! Don't change a thing!

The uniforms HAVE changed over the last 40 years. Perhaps only slight changes, but changes nonetheless. Again, the look is classic. No need to mess with perfection!

Change for the sake of change is unnecessary. Some of the changes I have seen around the NFL are not necessarily improvements, in my opinion. I liked the Broncos old unis and helmets much better than the current design. The Jets have actually returned to their classic late 60's uniforms (ala Joe Namath), which look much better than the old green helmets they sported in the 80's and 90's. The Patriots new unis aren't bad, but I liked their old helmet and unis just fine. Same for the Bucs, although a lot of people hated their old orange unis.

boooo, no.


I love the horns.

The horns represent fear in our opponents as enemies.

Vikings never actually wore horns on their helmets in combat, they were just portrayed as evil, the horns represent the devil.

I think if we lose the horns we lose some meaning in our names.

I somewhat agree with the uni changes maybe a black alternate, but nothing really drastic.

I lvoe our unies right now, but a new alternate would be fine.

Keep the helmets and jerseys, but add a yellow or black alternate.

Yeah, I'm back for another season. I've been hanging out a lot on the Purple Thoughts board on Viking Update (purplepat69 over there).

At least for awhile, the offseason chatter on here didn't seem too inspiring to me. I get bored easily.

I'm in the PurplePride FFL again, so I assume I'll start posting on here more.

And to keep this a little bit on topic, sorry but those unis that were posted on this thread are really fugly. Give me "standard" looking uniforms, not bizzare typefaces, weird striping, etc. And yellow jerseys are the WORST.

I will say that the "alternate" black jerseys with the purple lettering that I have seen look pretty sharp. A couple of the photoshopped helmets didn't look too bad either, especially the black one with the horn and the purple stripe. I don't like the "MV" helmet design at all, though.

Now, I'm not advocating this, just putting it out there for the Photo Shop helmet guy. How about a helmet in either a silver/pewter or gold/bronze color? Something with a textured finish to give it that "hand hammered" look of an actual metal helmet. Keep the Viking horn on the sides, and you could maybe put some sort of stripe down the middle much like the metal band that joins two sides of a metal helmet...maybe with "rivets" spaced every so often on the stripe. In other words, make a helmet that really looks like a warrior's helmet!

I still like the current helmet the best, but I do like alternate 4. There's something about white helmets that just looks good to me.
Dang! Does your job require advanced photoshop skills? #5 is my favorite. That "MV" looks sweet like that. A really cool one would be that idea with a purple "mettalic" helmet with the horns on it somehow...

Are those helmets gonna be available to use as avatars anytime soon? I'd use that black helmet with the initials on it, that one's cool.

Did anyone see the Detroit Lion uniforms on MNF Aug.29th? They look like the Carolina Panther uniforms. Does any body really Want the Minnesota Vikings to look like either of these two teams?!?!? I sure as sheet do not!

Sincerely,

True, but our black alternate jerseys (at least the ones they sell in the store and online) are much sweeter than theirs.

The only minor change I might suggest is going with purple pants with the road whites because I think it would be a great combination.

What the heck else would we have as a logo? A piece of lefsa or lutafisk?


MMMMMM, lefsa. Now that is an idea I might go for. Put some butter and brown sugar on it, and roll it up. gol 'darnit, now im hungry.

I vote for a rolled up piece of lefsa to replace the horns on the helmet.


Lefse(not lefsa) and Lutefisk, no way, pickled herring is the way to go. I am of Norwegian (Christensen, mothers side) and Swedish(Anderson dad's side) decent, so I have some viking blood, and love the food, except for lutefisk im not as fond of that, but I'll eat it if I have too. If you've never had pickled herring you don't know what you're missing, like most of these foods we're talking about, they do not look or smell very good, but they sure are tasty.


But anyway, do not change our basic uniforms, maybe an alternate, but I love what we have, especially the away uniforms.
