lol logos

They’re enough to make pro players wanna turn in their jerseys.

Or not, considering their salaries of millions.

From a favorite site, the irreverent InventorSpot, where there’s always something good for a chuckle. Or eight.

Worst Sports Logo #8. A Lego-Like Skyline

Combining rainbows and building blocks may not be a good thing, but it didn’t matter as the Denver Nuggets used this logo from 1982-1993. Maybe the creators were hooked on the game of Tetris.

Worst Sports Logo #7. The Idea Was There …

Believe it or not, this interesting design has been used as the New York Jets alternate logo since 2002. From one point of view it looks like an angry face, but others have said it’s actually an airplane (curvy line) landing on a football. Go figure.

Worst Sports Logo #6. Making A Trail

Considering their mascot is a mountain lion, it’s hard to see the concept behind this logo used by the Portland Trail Blazers . Supposedly, the pinwheel-looking logo is a graphic representation of two five-on-five basketball teams lined up against each other. Still looks like ten squiggly lines.

Worst Sports Logo #5. Odd Logo For A Historic Team

Before the original logo so many people have to come to love, the Boston Red Sox used this creation from 1950-1959. It is a rather unique design of a red sock, but the yellow bat, yellow headband and rather large chin throw it off.

Worst Sports Logo #4. Giving A Rugged Look To Fishermen

The New York Islanders were looking to give their logo and look a makeover but were unsuccessful with this graphic. Despite looking a bit more sophisticated with the times, the fisherman, along with the new team colours, was hated by fans everywhere. Maybe it’s because the fisherman had a serious tan going for himself.

Worst Sports Logo #3. What Is That?

No one knows for sure, but it doesn’t look like people cared about sports logos in the 1900s. For one year only (1916), the Chicago Cubs used this odd design as their primary logo. The unusual aspect of it is that the figure in the middle is supposed to be a bear. Had anyone ever seen what a bear looked like back then?

Worst Sports Logo #2. True Disney Fashion

Instead of using their traditional logo, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks used this for their alternate jersey in 1996. The cartoon television show may have been a hit for children, but having Wild Wing on a hockey jersey is just embarrassing.

Worst Sports Logo #1. Lonely At The Top

Whether or not the tiger is confused or depressed, this poorly-drawn logo was used by the Detroit Tigers from 1927-1928. Not only does it show that even the best teams have had ugly logos, but it displays that artists back then didn’t know how to express anger through their work.
