Hey, look! It's another "Ozzie swears a lot" joke!

Seriously, do these guys even try anymore?

When does the class action suit get filed against ESPN for hurting Red Sawx Nation's feelings?

Notice, that's not in teal.

Really, I'm the only one who thinks that some of these are really funny? Is "the media did it, so it must be horrible" the attitude that WSI has now?

I actually happen to think that the Sox one is one of the best (and the Red Sox one of the worst)

The Mets, Marlins and Pirates made me laugh.

I got a kick out of it.

The Baltimore one in particular was pretty funny.

Best in the AL were probably the Royals and Angels. NL good ones were Arizona, Florida, and the Dodgers.

The Mets and Diamondbacks were my favorites. The Sox one was funny too.

As a Raiders fan I find the Pirates one both insulting and amusing.

I thought they were pretty good for the most part. Some sucked, but not every team can be interesting.

I liked the Mets done up like the Knicks, a little harsh, but true!

No I think it's, "if I personally don't find this funny, I'm not going to pretend that I do" attitude.

Not only were they almost all lame, but the graphics looked like they were done in PC Paint!

I didn't even smile at any of them. It's like a 3rd grader got a hold of paint.

They recycled a lot. It was funny at first then they just got bored, I mean there were 3 related to pitching and 2 that just used a player's name.

I liked the Yankees' new logo. It hit the nail right on the head.

Actually, the Sox one was appropriate given last night's performance. That's what my house sounded like.

You're taking the whole thing too seriously. It's a dumb joke to start with, the funniest part of most of them were how crappy they were. If these were executed well, the whole thing would be a steaming pile.

Maybe I'm just easily amused.

No. You are exactly right actually. I have no idea why these other guys are so pissed how unfunny these pretty funny logos are.

Lol, if ESPN was behind it there will be riots at WSI, you should know how it works by now.

The D+ and Chapter II's were my favorites.

It's Page 2 filler. They need to put stuff up in an effort to make it not so obvious that The Sports Guy is the only thing keeping the lights on over there.

I don't know if this thread or the logo's were more funny. I enjoyed them. Both of them.
