kudos to the city in standing up and saying the logo is hideous.  They need to make sure we don't destroy what's left of the Gund's character with a tacky logo like that.

Thank god they didn't approve that.  Very tacky.  It doesn't go with the high tech, cool look of the Gund.  What they really need is a big revolving "Q" on the roof.

Actually, I think it would be awesome community relations if they had a public competition to design the logo.  They could still select/refine the one they like best.

why cant it just be that big golden "Q" for the one in "Quicken" and then have "Loans Arena" next to it.  somehow incorporate the "swoosh" thing into the bottom of the Q.  i mean who puts words under and outside of a "swoosh" and some inside of it?  that just looks terrible.   i would even say invert the "quicken" colors so the text is red and not worry about the border around it

Pope,

The Cavs don't suck.

I wonder what they will do with the old signs.  I just ran into the old Chief Wahoo sign at the WRHS Library. Very cool.

Some good news, the Quicken Loans center alluded to earlier in this thread looks like it will come to be.  From Cleveland.com

Quote
3:14 p.m.

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert announced today that he has selected Cleveland as the site for a new loan office that will create 350 high-paying jobs for his rapidly-expanding Quicken Loans. The jobs are expected to pay $85,000 to $90,000 a year in salary and commission. The loan office will be located downtown, as close to Gund Arena as possible, Gilbert said. He wants it open by the middle of next year. Jobs will be for mortgage bankers/loan officers who will process incoming customer calls/ loan applications.

I like to see this.  There was a press conference at 1:00 to discuss the move.  Mayor Campbell was there but I did not see it.  Waiting to see if they post the archive on www.cavs.com...
