the CIC are the 12th man, does that make the crowd on a matchday the 13th man now?

On a serious note.
I actually do not like that at all, it really looks like a club statement, rather than a CIC logo, and thats disappointing.
We, the fans, should be the CIC, so that makes us the 12th man.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Hate it!
It's too bland, grey and more grey.
It shouts 'new club' and WE ARE NOT A NEW CLUB.
If it is supposed to be the 12th man for DFC where is the DFC badge on it?
It looks like the badge of a 2nd rate Sunday league team.

In these days of political correctness we werent allowed to have 'ball boy' or 'ball girl' on the tabards they had to be 'ball person'. So how is it ok to have 12th Man?

The badge is ok for a logo as long as that is all it is for, think its a bit unnecessary we paid a fortune to keep the badge so why not just use it for everything.

Please, Please, Please, do nothing to change or confuse our badge.
It is sacrosant.
It is what we are. The FA have done everything to destroy our club, taken our name away from us, demoted us 4 divisions,made us temporary nomads.
We know what the CIC stands for.
We only have our history and our badge.
You f*** with that at your peril.

It almost makes me nostalgic for sandwich-gate.

Picky I know but you've got to be careful about these things.
:lol: :lol:
Well it's true! There's a difference between a badge and a logo from a design point of view. Badges should be kept for teams and clubs, logos are for businesses, groups etc... and before anyone pipes up we can probably argue about terminology until we're blue in the face.
Normally i love argument about design but im in full agreement with you, the cic needed to develop its own company branding not a badge.

Design wise, its a neat bit of work,
