    Wolves to get new logo and uniforms!!!

    According to the Startribune the rebranding of the Wolves is underway. Expect to see the changes next season 2017-2018.

    No thanks! I am all for going back to the original colors I don't care for the muted blue. The logo should be a combo of old school and new school. Uniforms I like simpler designs.

    . Yup. The wolves should hire the vendor whom the Bucks used

    This concept logo that was done on Sportslogos.net is pretty cool. I could get behind this.

    I'd like to see them make the uniforms more like the original, maybe with a darker shade of blue but with similar usage of green (and perhaps font).

    Not just you. Somehow 1 syllable doesn't work here- maybe because Wolves is a bit hard to get your mouth around, and you can end up swallowing the l and the v.
    R-E-S-P-E-C-T find out what it means to me!

    Well, we end up calling them the "Wolves" most of the time in discussion. I know personally I never liked the "Timber" in the name from the get go. I mean, they're not the Toronto VelociRaptors. Or maybe the Chicago Angus Bulls? Milwaukee Whitetail bucks anyone? Chicago Brown (or black) Bears? Its just a bit too specific for me. We could have just as easily have been the Minnesota Grey wolves I guess...

    as for the logo...I'm hoping we dont go back to the smilin' husky. I like something showing a bit of teeth.

    I like that one Tom but isn't that almost our logo now? The one on the shorts that they were using in ESPN for summer league? I would like to see us return to the original colors.

    +100. Just say NO! to the smilin husky. I can't take anymore of him. Too many painful memories. I hated those uniforms. I like the teeth too.

    So excited for the change. I haven't liked their current scheme from day 1 - just a personal preference.

    I like the change to "Wolves" also. Three syllables was way too long.

    Just to clarify, this is happening for '16-'17 and not '17-'18, right?

    In a year.

    The one negative about the original logo was that it was not a Wolf in was a dog. Make it a Wolf and it's great.

    Toronto Velociraptor sounds badass lol As for the jerseys, I'm not too keen on the current ones. Still think our 90's-early 00's were the best, especially the black ones with trees on the stripe. I'm also with WOTP that I prefer simpler designs.

    STHers got a letter with the color scheme and some info on the updated logo/color look. Jerseys launch in the Spring.

    (Praying for a simple, Bucks-like look).

    This logo or the T-Shirt isnt much different than the one we have now other than the slight color changes. The one thing I miss from the original logo and the color scheme is the shade of blue and kelly green. I thought those colors went so well together. My one concern with going for a Navy and Lime Green is that the colors will look to much like the Seahawks.
