This line will be repeated for infinity. Not a fan of them will be the anthem. Wait till we get them all. There will be more people angry than satisfied. Love how you got the AAF reference when none of these colors were in play for any AAF teams. Which by the way had some good names and logos in my opinion.

If my eyes deceive me. One of them looks like the eye of a Viper. Unique color combo. Looks like black, light blue and red.

The other appears to be the edge of the letter D. Perhaps it’s for Dallas. Looks like a Silver, Navy Blue, Red and White color combination.

As some have pointed out. XFL St. Louis may also be tipping their hand as far as their team colors. I like the Dallas color combo. Not so sure about that viper. If it is in fact a Viper.

One you don’t get to tell me how to feel or think but two I was referring to their little game of showing just a little small square of the whole logo

Ugh, of all the things to rip off from the AAF.

Surely they sense people are anxious and maybe figure some bread crumbs are better than nothing. I think there are better ways to communicate this, but I understand the instinct.

The color scheme on on the left looks awfully Oiler-y.

I'd be a fan of Vipers for Dallas since that's what my Dallas team was called from 2003-05 (although Houston Vipers was a CAT in Madden 02 so I can see the charges of laziness, I mean that works for me but not as much the real thing)

Plus I wouldn't like it for St Louis since we're supposed to be getting away from WWE and Vipers, Predators (Apex), and Legends (Killers) would be a callback to STL native Randy Orton. What's next, the Seattle YES (Daniel Bryan)? Houston Phenom (Undertaker)?

I gotta go along with you on this Tank. I am not a fan of the tease. You are better off just announcing when the identities are going to be revealed. They obviously don’t have all 8 logos finished yet so they are just showing a couple to appease the impatient crowd out there.

Yes very Oilers like in the left logo. Could this be Houston and Dallas?

That’s fair. I overreacted and assumed that you were overreacting and using the same old tired and closed minded critiques that I see all the time. Your criticism is valid. Sorry.
