    Indeed. Which other club would have fans like RG haunting its rivals forum like some sort of bad smell. Weird.

    I suppose the interbreeding has an effect on the gene pool. The six fingers come in handy for the male of the species to put a smile on his sisters face but a strange breed. They even paid someone's wife 100K a yesr to work in the Warrior souvenir shop, and then wonder why they lost their home, and are now in rented accommodation, well not at present because they cant get in.

    We should go the other way and get the town crest back on the shirt.

    That is some horrendous design.

    the video they have put out that shows the inspiration for the design even says "we are known for those famous cherry and white hoops, so they need to be included" then they dont include them on the shirt!

    Looks awful.

    Made better things using Clipart back in 1998.

    Wouldn't mind at all but at least when we updated our badge in the mid 90s then in the 2010s it was a decent design (bar the "Saints RL). This is just tat, utter crap. That they go and project it on our and Wires Stadiums is embarrasing..... for them. Tin pot club mascarading as some sort of sporting dynasty. Pathetic.

    Well they can't project it on their own stadium, they don't have one. I guess it was our stadiums or Oral training ground or failing that the residential home housing Brian.

    Looks like the Costa Coffee sign with Johnny Welly replacing the beans.

    Dumbed down nonsense, and a terrible decision given they had the best badge they could ever have had, namely the crest of the town. Maybe this new badge will make thousands of people realise that they now love Wigan, maybe their crowds will rocket, maybe they’ll snag a multi-million pound deal with Nike, etc. Or maybe they’ll now just have a tacky badge that will make them look daft and alienate fans.

    I was only thinking on Friday how much better their crest looked than our badge, then they go all thundercats meets Starbucks

    I think It looks awful, but I can see why they've changed it.. in a digital world and social media, the town crest shows up poorly when reduced..

    I also think with our branding, our badge works with all of our merchandise, other than say smart casual polo shirts, a town crest doesn't real work on 'leisurewear'

    That kit is a shocker though

    Well it does seem like money is the reason for the new badge,

    "Radlinski cited the fact the Warriors have been turned down by manufacturers for their plans to produce certain products due to the intricate nature of the traditional badge, which features 21,000 threads and costs 」3.20 every time it is embroidered onto a garment, as another need for change."

    Quite embarrassing

    It looks cheap; dime a dozen.
    The average sports fan would mistake it for an imitation of an Evostik Non League team.

    Someone who works within the club told me they paid a high fee for the design and also that the away shirt is terrible.

    It's not so often you're right, but you're wrong again.

    It was a cheap publicity stunt trying to copy the aeroplane cheap publicity stunt of Warrington. Absolutely no class. Like Singleton. I honestly thought they were bigger than this but this tawdry effort shows them for what they are.

    Sorry Bri, I know you are a stickler for detail. Care home, not residential. I apologise. But the correlation with your mighty club is its all rented accommodation.
