    It’s probably fair to say that it’s a while since Moose roamed freely in the Bronze Age land we now call Hertfordshire.

    A muntjac that’s been run over by a tosser in a Merc a more up to date image.

    Sounds too much like the Brexit experience. Keep the Moose!

    Time for the moose to go imho.

    The badge needs changing as well.

    They're reintroducing beavers, cranes, storks, ....why not moose (mooses, meese ?) ?
    It's time for you to run free my friend.

    Club anthem?

    Born free! As free as the Moose roams
    As free as a central defender
    Born free to follow your Herts.

    Live free and beauty surrounds you
    Deeney still astounds you
    Each time you look at a star

    Stay free where no walls divide you
    You're free as the roaring tide
    So there's no need to hide

    Born free and life is worth living
    But only worth living
    'Cause you're born free

    Would keep the existing one, it's fine.

    And if it goes to a vote the existing badge will almost certainly win.

    Platypus (platypuses, Platypusi) also scheduled to be reintroduced.

    Why now? I assume they aren't trying to get this squeezed in for next season.

    If we're aspiring to be a London club to help with support base and tempting foreign players then swapping the Hart for a Hornet but keeping the distinctive badge design would be my vote. Id change the text to Watford FC as well as that would help improve image right protection prospects.

    Maybe the Houses of Parliament, St Pauls or London Bridge ?

    A picture of Messi and an Xbox.

    Or my signature picture. Whichever reaches the broadest base.

    As opposed to whinging about everything Hornet connected, feel cynical and ******** revel in it?

    You added a picture of him after your post. The insuation was obvious. Like putting an insult at the end of the sentence in your reply. You clown.

    Switch to a Hornet to help with branding worldwide. The Hart is outdated.

    Not a cautionary tale at all.

    The new club badge has already been decided.
    This is just the usual mock democratic process to convince it’s the will of the people.

    It will be said (with gravitas) that the cartoon Hornet with moose ears landslide winner of this process is amusing and stands out but is not suitable for the international marketing of our club - and then go with the badge already decided.

    This happened in the Boaty McBoatface decision which was actually named ‘RRS Sir David Attenborough’, which was only 4th in the vote. (I thought ‘RRS It’s Bloody Cold Here’ had a ring to it personally).

    Keep going back to the people to vote again until we get the ‘right’ decision (like the Irish and their EU referendumssss).

    Worst case scenario with the ‘wrong’ result, delay and delay so no decision is ever made (like Brexit).

    The process will produce a lot of creativity and heat in the subsequent debate, friendships and families will be torn asunder by the vehemence of the opposing views, but the new badge had already been designed and decided on - sorry. :D

    Or easier to switch our nickname to "the Harts" and have "Harry the Hart" prancing about at home games ?

    Dodos are outdated. Harts still very much exist.

    Bit confused why the club are bothering to ask us when it's obvious the new marketing/branding lot have already decided.

    Didn't a new badge in recent times just imperceptibly change the font? Utter waste of time then and no doubt now, even if it does change. Who really cares? As long as we play well and don't get relegated that's what matters. Any advertising gurus claiming a new badge will bring the Watford brand (puke) into the 21st century (puke) as a recognisable global identity (puke) that fans can engage with (puke) are just lining their pockets. Emperor's new clothes.

    Intellectual property rights are certainly driving this one. At least the design has gone out to the fans, unlike Hull, Cardiff and several other clubs. I am a remainer but will accept an orderly and coherent design. No crashing out based on an imposed design. Alot of shirt sales and merchandising riding on this one over a long period.

    Not if the voting was,

    The old badge to remain, or,
    Some unspecified new badge that will be really great, like the best badge you've ever seen, with money to spare to buy expensive new, homegrown, players, free from UEFA rules.

    That would go 52/48, but what badge to choose? Three years on and the old badge would be there and the club would be about to put a lunatic in charge to finish the job.

    Not sure that's the case. The current badge is fully protected as it is.
