What a bittersweet week for the Ottawa RedBlacks, first they earn a trip to the Grey Cup in just their second season, but lose by just a touchdown; then they get some love South of the border on ESPN… but they use the wrong logo (and forgot to cut out a little of the light background in the bottom part of the football, heads up!)
It’s not even just an outdated logo, it’s a logo the team has never actually used.
The logo shown up there behind Chris “Hey, it’s the First of Decem”-Berman during Sportscenter was designed by Andy Davidhazy and his team when pitching logos to the RedBlacks prior to their first season. They ultimately chose one of Davidhazy’s other designs.
Another instance of a big sports network relying on a simple, quick Google Image search to do their research for them.
I dunno. We’re not hiding, are we?
