    How do you feel about our current logo? - I think it won't be too long in the next few years ahead where we change the logo/helmet since we have redone the Jersey design a few times already in the past 13 years.

    Do you like the Flying Elvis? - The Pat Patriot better? - or maybe The vintage Patriot hat logo from the very early Boston Patriot years?

    And which type of design would you like to see Kraft and his designers change it to and any additional colors or changes to the current one?

    I would say by 2010 we have some new type uniforms/helmet designs - Hopefully none god awful like what the Broncos did years ago :eek: .

    I know my favorite helmet was Pat Patriot and the best jersey design was the one where it had the large Flying Elvis logo over the shoulders,during the early Bledsoe years in 1994.

    I would like to see an alternate Flying Elvis with a black face. I think that would be cool.

    I like the uniforms and I think they should leave them be for a while.

    We've certainly done better in them than we did in Pat Patriot and the old flying Elvis ones.

    I think teams only screw around with things like logos and uniform designs when they can't seem to win and their FO doesn't care to look in the mirror for the reasons. I think Elvis is here to stay at least as long as the Krafts remain owners because he represents the new Patriots ownership and championship era branding.

    Nothings worse than a closet Raider/Indy/Red Sox fan. They should be beat with socks filled with nickles(name the video..)

    It would be cool to have the regular flying Elvis on one side of the helmet, and a black flying Elvis on the other side. That way everyone on the team and in the fan base would feel represented by the logo.

    The uni's now is what they should be from now on. They are becoming a classic because of all the success that has happened in the current one's, they are the one's people will always remember. I would like to see old Pat ever once in-while, never liked the 90's version at all though.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    But I do really like the look of our uniforms, the design, color combinations etc.

    And when I see them I think Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Superbowls. When I see the old uniforms all I can think of are all the years of futility. This team has a lot of history and we wouldn't be where we are without being where we were, but I am very proud of what this team has done/is doing and I am enjoying every moment of it.

    I hope they are here to stay for a while.

    Hardly the motto for a Patriots fan. We should always be looking to improve our team, via trade, free agency, the draft, or graphic design.

    I was thinking more on the lines of a Flying James Brown in an Uncle Sam top-hat, a la Rocky IV.:rocker:

    Personally, I LOVE the current logo, and the color scheme. Easily one of the best looking in ALL of professional sports.

    Maybe have 1 more alternate jersey color... periodically change the colors, just a little.

    But thats all.

    Pretty much. Or to drum up revenue or public interest back towards the team.

    My fave Pats coat, has Pat Patriot on one side and Flying Elvis on the other, so my feelings are obvious.. both denote good memories, but the Flying Elvis are somewhat better. Maybe they could mix it up, bring back the Pat Patriot occasionally.
