We should just go back to this, but change the year to 1876  

The thing is I'm not bothered about it.  I don't believe that the person who said it really meant it, and I doubt he was looking to really offend me with it, so I wouldn't report it or him.  A bit lik

Hopefully similar to this

That's gorgeous! The lion, 86 and 1876, the Transporter Bridge, a circle and a shield...mmm...

How did we end up with our current overdesigned and underwhelming logo when this beauty was in contention?

Nobody really knows but there were a few rumours at the time that it came from a source close to Gibbo which is why it went through "unopposed" or from a Student at a local College (or maybe a mixture of the two). To my knowledge the original source never really came to light and considering the fans opinions at the time and ever since it's not a surprise it was kept quiet.

It was done by a bloke that worked at the club. He was in some kind of junior marketing/commerce position. I remember him referencing it on twitter at the time and then receiving a lot of stick as it was so bad.

I did like that badge, but would love to see us go to a minimalist badge with just a lion, or a lion with MFC underneith.

Like the 70s to mid 80s badge?

How many weeks after the home shirt does the away shirt usually come out? Can anyone remember back to last pre-season for a rough idea?

Think they were both out at the same time last year

Ok, I don't really want to go on about this because you've got a view of the world that just isn't how it works in reality, but just because you didn't use it as a slur or think of it as a slur doesn't mean that it isn't. I'm not accusing you of intentionally trying to offend anyone, just to be more careful about your choice of language.

I think the point CT was trying to make is that not all "world views" are in fact global.

The majority of the time, some people find certain things offensive, while others don't. Even when it comes to words relating to themselves.

Also, as CT said, the intent behind the use of a word can carry as much meaning as the word itself (though that can be less obvious on an internet forum).

In a nutshell, just because the prevailing or politically correct view is to find something offensive, not everyone will. Assuming everyone is aware of, or agrees with said view can cause as much argument as the topic itself...as we occasionally see here.

Anyway, thats just my 2 cents.

I'll be honest, I don't really care if you are offended or not - it's still considered a slur, so I'm not going to allow it, it's that simple.

Thats a nice piece of work - though really you could make 2 badges out of it. Get rid of the shield and you've basically got the 1986 badge.

For a new design, I'd keep the shield, have "MIDDLESBROUGH FC" in a bar across the top and "1876" where the 86 is.

I'd also change the blue bits to red.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
