New Canberra Raiders logo?

‪LIKE IT/DON’T LIKE IT? Noticed this logo on some of the Canberra Raiders social media profiles this week... has been around a bit earlier in the year too. What do you think of it? ‬

The jerseys still have the old logo on it, but the off field gear has the updated logo

I don't mind it

This. The current one has a very turn of the millennium feel. Too much going on.

I don't get the blue or green beards in either. But the "new" one is far too blue and not enough green.

It is the proper green though, rather than OzEmail green.

I think the "new" one is cleaner and yeah, doesnt have that weird ozemail vibe about it.
The green in the beard is enough green for me. The more i look at it the more i think it leaves the "Current" one for dead.

Still, there is only one answer and the sooner we go back to our original logo the better imo

If we're going to go to a new logo, we should go to a brand new logo, IMO.

Remember though, it's meant to sit on a green background.

I like the Original far more than the current or new. But the new is better than the current.

OzEmail green. Ask for it in paint shops.

Though I'm a fan of the old, I must admit of the three I like the new the most.

IMO It's cleaner and less cluttered. The subtle differences (more white in the eyes, cleaner tilted mouth lines) give it a more aggressive feel too. Well done Raiders :clap:

Logo update is good, however we need a total re-brand. That logo is 20 years old now. A modern take on the original logo would be what I’d like to see

The logo that The Green Machine Podcast uses is amazing, such a good mix of the classic and something modern, bring that in! The Viking looks scary, the one now looks real dopey. Image

The old one is a classic but has done it's time. The new one is a good revamp of the current one. I agree with posters above, it's cleaner and sharper.

The Raiders podcast one is good for the podcast but not the right style for the team.

I'd like to see anything new be a slightly less stylised logo than the current/new ones.

No disrespect to the pod lads
They do a good job and that’s a perfectly fine logo for a amateur podcast... but that is not a great logo for our club haha

This. You'll never top the nostalgia and feels tied to that first one, though I'm happy to have a newer one and use the old one for retro/anniversary stuff and of the newer ones I like the new new one

I’d love the old club song “we are the Canberra Raiders” to get a spin on retro round. Yeah it’s not the world’s best tune but some club legends ran out to it and it was sung to celebrate some historic wins.

If the raiders update the logo, it should be a combination of the new and old. Have the new Viking (white and blue)

Does the fact that our current logo came in on the...worst....raiders...jersey....eeevver count for anything? It's time for a new logo that takes strong cues from our original logo. Does anyone remember if there was any debate or fallout when we changed in the year 2000?

Personally, I think the old logo looks very old fashioned and it was never great design. I think the current logo is better. I’d be happy to see a new, more modern design now, actually. Just making the old design all blue or green... doesn’t really do much for me.

I just think if anything, we should bring back the original Yellow and Green circle format for the logo, it's a good homage to our history without being overly sentimental. Update the viking sure. Current logo, just, cmmmoon, I think people are just used to it, no one would miss it if it got the boot.
