The helmet logo from the 70’s was the best; it was simple and hit every note properly .
Kid can scribble it and it was iconic .
The new one was an improvement over the third one with the exploding football with the half maple leaf .
The colours were good with Grey representing the Grey Cup scheme . The red maple leaf needed to be bigger and the should have given the ball two black ends to make sure people see the entire football and not the Simpsons TV blob . It would have looked sharp and the black borders would have given it a high end logo like the NHL badge with their orange and black NHL colours .
If the logo had been filled out better and made sure the red popped out as much as the Grey silver it would have been a stronger image .
It just needs some tweaking .
The CFL grey and black colours with the red maple leaf is a simple image for a helmet or football if they don’t want to use a badge that the NFL and NHL use .
