The first one I like everything except for the scorpion and the soccer ball. It'd be nice to have a better looking scorpion with an old time ball [sort of like the one in the Crocketteers badge]

The second one isn't bad at all. Although I look at this like there's a hole in the shield and the tail is poking through it and around the back of the shield  Tongue Joking aside this is my clear choice and I wouldn't have a problem with this being the shield of the team.

The third one I don't like at all. Looks like it's for a kid's team.  Just....no.


Sorry if I offended anyone who submitted one of the logo's listed.  Just my opinions.


And for some reason every time I try to insert the captcha at the bottom of the page so that I can vote, it says it's wrong no matter what I type in. I've tried CAPS and spacing and lower case. I give up on voting.  It's whatever though.

NEVER FORGET is right, the first one is more European, and it will look a 1000 times better with an old ball.  The second one is good, but too modern i think, and the third one, well...they can use it for the U-17 players.

All 3 are cool, but i will vote for the first one, with an old ball.

I voted for choice "B" but I saw several designs on the Scorpions facebook page that looked much better than the three official choices. While choice "C" is a good design, it's not appropriate for pro-team in NASL. Choice "A", the scorpion looks like it's dead and now on display as a science project but I do like the shield design. Choice "B" is marginally better than "A" while the scorpion looks much better, the shield is much more conservative. I hope there will be good colors to the team and that the team chooses the colors with no voting on the issue.

I just find it strange that the Crocketteers have a better name and design and colors and they are a supporters group. The great design made by the Crocketteers and inventive colors are part of what got me initially so excited. It's unfortunate that the people at the Scorpions haven't done better to sell their team better. While I was optimistic about the name and logo submissions. I think maybe these things should just be left to the professionals and be released when the design is complete. It just feels like getting served a meal without the right ingredients.

Different scorpion and ball and #1 is a clear choice for me. Also I think the stroke on the scorpion should be a lot less [if you don't know what I'm talking about, stroke is the color the outlines the image.  In this case, the scorpion is outline in white and it's very thick.

#1's shield is excellent too.  Forgot to mention that and I like how A and B both have a star!  If the ball and scorpion are fixed I won't have a problem with it and I'm happy with #2 as well.  #3 should just be taken off of here lol

#1, I would remove the scorpion (it already says Scorpions) and place the ball there.

Let's pray ... I'm serious about this, that #1 & #2 don't split the votes and we end up with #3.  Shocked

It's unavoidable now, we're going to have a scorpion in the logo.

I would choose choice "A" if it didn't have a scorpion in it. Simple is better.

Horribly disappointed at the choices for the top 3 designs.

Just as with the name, it's clear they had a predetermined "feel/look" they wanted.

That said, 1 is the only one that won't make think it's a joke when I see it on merchandise/etc

Now the contest did say that they may ask the designer to change some minor details in it.  Maybe they could revamp the scorpion in one or have them take out the words scorpions on it and put San Antonio instead.  Hailtotheking- How do you think #2 looks like it would be a joke on merchandise.  I can see that and #2 as the logo. 

Do you think the Spurs are reading this board saying "We can name the team this and they'll love us." Or "When we design the logo, we should use an old ball." LOL

The first two logos feature the scorpion committing an obvious "hand ball" violation.

Here's a logo someone posted on some article:




IDK if it was submitted but if it was and didn't get chosen then I'm pissed.

I really like #1 except that I agree with Daekor about the dead scorpion.  I have seen a lot of scorpions in my house, and the only time their tails are flat like that are when they have been poisoned and died before being stepped on by me!
