Where's the dog in a snood incorporated?
A lager drinker? Beaujolais nouveau has no vintage. That's its raison d` etre.
Email just received from the club:
Nice sentiment but feel far too much trust is being put in the place of fans here
First Z Cars, now this.
It'll just be that guy who does the Simpsons character depictions of our undeserving managers and completely irrelevant banners that we see peddled around the ground.
It'll be some monstrosity with a angry looking Hornet and 1881 plastered all over it like the results of a quick wa*k.
Seems fairly conclusive to me that the current badge will remain. There will be too many fans that want to keep it against 5 other options.
Five other options just splits the vote of fans who may want to change. Will need to be a fairly unifying new design that will change that I think.
I don't see the problem. As long as it reflects our traditions and history.
Something like this will do imo:
If it's 52/48 to Remain, there will be unfinished business.
I think Carloskicksballs will come up with the winner
You underestimate the club’s desire to crack a confused American market that probably have never seen a hornet but are inclined to feed one a carrot if they ever do
Bet a load of opposition fans try to put silly ones in !
Yellow by yawnmongers
Americans idea of a Hornet:
Put that on our badge: USA market cracked.
Anyone able to draw a hornet that's riding a moose? With the pond in the background?
This could backfire badly as interweb poll things are fraught with danger.
Heed the cautionary tale of Boaty McBoatface.
We could end up with Watford McW@nkface on our shirts for the next hundred years.
Doesn't need to change. Pointless.
For that scenario to happen they'd have to present "Watford McW@nkface" as one of the new badges to be voted on, since they've said they will whittle it down a final 5+1.
Somehow I don't see the club choosing any "comedy" offerings for voting options.
I think the main issue will be how they will stop non-fans from voting.
Get Ticketmaster to run the voting.
Granted, no one will successfully vote but that’s a price worth paying.
Have we learnt NOTHING from the last referendum?
At least Luton fans don't out number us so we probably won't end up with a Hornet wearing a stupid Hat
Corrected for you
I see you got there before me, Willis
I know Malky wasn’t everyones cup of tea but a bit far calling him that .
Another sign that financially the club is on its arse. We can’t even pay for a graphic designer to come up with a new badge, let alone buy a decent defender.
Amateurish way to manage a redesign.
I do like the current badge. But if there was a change then get rid of the Hert. I understand the reference to Hertfordshire but it doesnt really say Hornets to anyone who didnt know otherwise.
Maybe change the font of the lettering and have an image of a hornet?
To match our defence!
As long as we can incorporate our record equalling 6-0 defeat in there somewhere, I'm happy.
This has the potential to turn us into a (bigger) laughing stock. Looking forward to seeing the cringey designs.
