So the gap between IRELAND - DOTS - FOOTBALL are equal. Plus, "Football" is very much the secondary text element in terms of importance. The jokes write themselves LOL

I think, regardless of the nod to the old crest, we were inevitably going to see a circular crest. Most new designs are headed that way as they're more versatile for digital media and (I believe) it is a better choice when it comes to embroidery.

Let's be honest here, it's a million times better than the previous one, yes people don't like the tilted shamrock and the use of IRELAND over ÉIRE but if these are the things people have to complain about then fair enough, I'd imagine majority who complain about it not being Éire probably only know a cúpla focal and are hardly tuning into Tg4 everyday.

Yes it would have been nice but unfortunately and I hate to say it English is the language most used in the country.

Probably should put this in the unpopular opinion thread, but I didn’t hate the old crest.

We obviously needed a new one. And while Ireland Football just doesn’t roll of the tongue, the crest itself is fairly inoffensive in my opinion.

You'd be surprised. I often make the comparison between gaeilgeorĂ­ and LOI fans. No body thinks they exist until you scratch the surface and realise they're literally everywhere. Sleeper cells all over the place!

Regardless of the proficiency of bĂ©arla, Irish is the official language of the state, personally I'd prefer us to have Éire on the crest. Was never a runner given the top man is a Tan.

Crest is a disgrace. I couldn't care less if it is Irish or Klingon on it in anyways but it's a stain on our football heritage, simple as. FAI should have put it to a votenof season ticket holders. I'm boycotting all FAI goods with his logo on, it's a shagging disgrace.

Black and Tan better?

Anyway, anyone that thinks Hill can or does make decisions in the dictator like way Delaney did for years has had their head buried in the sand as the new governance structures were adopted. Either that or they actually miss the JD days and hope its more of the same.

Hill the Hun is single handedly responsible for us throwing away the 35 year unbeaten record to the Auld Enemy all for a few quids bribe to replace New Zealand. Can't even call him a traitor, a fifth columnist more like.

Be interesting to see if there's a Mens team sponsor announced before next week. Would expect Sky to be labelled across Womens jersey like last years launch.

Days have passed and the jury is still out on this new logo. Had a good chat with a graphic designer pal of mine and he is agreement that this has the hallmarks of a foreign design team producing a lazy assed design. Did Castore come up with this sh*te?? If you google 'Ireland Logo' up will come a shutterstock design complete with a lopsided shamrock in a circle. They have also ripped off the German fa logo too. How was this not put out to competition or given to some company with a good history of football logo design. I know alot including myself were not a huge fan of the last crest but at least it had something creative about it compared to this kak that would be more suited to a kids football shirt in Dunnes Stores.

I was warming to the new crest, but now I'm starting to feel like we've been had.
