Horrible. Much prefer the old one, I'm sure most Glos supporters will too.

I like it. Its not like their old one has a huge amount of history to it.

And the Tattoo bit is good PR and is not likely to cost them a huge amount.

I do not however want ours to change, it has been tweaked but is still quite original.

It would not be the first time that the marketing people at Castle Grim have tried to jazz things up and failed miserably. Traditional supporters the Tractor boys, and they can smell bulls**t.

is it just my ageing eyes, or does it look very similar to the Tigers logo now?

I love our crest and would never ever want it replaced but I wish we would do away with our 'modern alternative' stickman logo. It looks like someone pulled it straight out of clip art.

I really like our stickman logo. I've even got one on my car!

Hands off the stickman! I think hes great - we are lucky in having a very old and renowned crest and a modern, easily recognised supplementary logo .

Modern??? It's "borrowed" from the 60's TV series The Saint

When I were a lad the fair coming to town was fantastic. You had to pay to go into booths to see the tattooed lady and the fat lady. Either are now available free at a supermarket near you.
I don't understand the 'back to the jungle' look. Fluid gender persons covered in orange woad and full war paint, blimey I would fight anyone once but these frighten me.
Anything that makes my ticket cheaper is a good idea.

Re the Stick Man, here's something from the archives that some might find interesting Stick Man thread from a few years back

Personally I like it and think its a marketing opportunity not made enough of. Have the silver little car stick man on my car over here in Finland, reminds me of home.

As for the tractor boys' rebrand, I'm in the "looks like Tigers" camp. What is it? Who are Gloucester now - Gloucester Leopards / Cheetahs / Pumas / 'insert wild cat name here'?

Quite often you get a tattooed fat lady too, is that a bargain or a saving?

I agree, cannot see why folks (especially Ladies) have them.

Many people have them done in haste,then regret decision for the rest of their lives.

This will be the first step, next will be addition of Lions to the name. With an American sponsor and pushing game in America Lions vs Bears or Tigers vs Saints is an easier marketing sell than Glos v Bristol or Leicester vs Northampton

Gloucester were very emphatic that they were not calling themselves Lions - mentioned a couple of times at the launch of the new logo.
