  • The Philadelphia Eagles logo is one of the most easily recognizable in the NFL.
  • The Eagles made changes to the wordmark of that logo to try to create a more modern look.
  • NFL fans across the league, including the team’s own fans, are clowning the new look.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

It’s a simple saying that rings true time and time again. But when it comes to sports teams, they just can’t seem to help themselves. This is particularly true of the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles are already on the wrong side of history after switching from their iconic kelly green to midnight green in the mid-90s. Now the organization is up to its old tricks.

Ari Meirov of Pro Football Focus reported on Thursday that Philadelphia is changing its wordmark. The Eagles are getting rid of their easily recognizable curved, boldface look for a more “modern” look that blends in with any number of USFL franchises.

The change prompted one Twitter user to ask the question that’s on all of our minds.

It comes as no surprise to see Eagles fans don’t love the new look.

Fans of other teams across the league got in on the act as well.

Every time a sports franchises goes back to retro colors or logos, fans seem to love the move. Instead, marketing departments have led us down a path of boring logos with zero personality.

Eventually professional sports franchises will learn not to mess with greatness. Today is not that day.
