Keep/Get Rid Contract Thread

The sponsor and badge blending into the top is much nicer than the home kit we got. That other hooped effort though, hideous.

The other hooped prototype looks like a ZX Spectrum graphic.

I like it.

We're so tinpot its unreal. What goes through folks minds??

There's a real air of the blown-up Kick Bishop Brennan Up The Arse graphic in that video. Marvelous stuff.

Everything about that tableau is fucking magnificent. Nothing is quite symmetrical. The current Morton top is hanging off something at a jaunty angle. The ghost of DDF looms over all. The less said about the Anglian Lives segment after the 10 minute mark (during which someone slightly tilts the camera) the better.

None of this is a dealbreaker but it's amazing watching anything that Morton put out, they never, ever check their work and there's always something slightly weird and Craggy Island about it. I love it - genuinely.

Love the home top with white badge and sponsor, a lot cleaner looking

I can't believe that the high production standards of 'A Celebration Of Craggy Island's Ethnic Diversity' is being tarred by association with Morton tbh.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Where are we pulling all these kits from? We’ve went from not hearing a mouse fart for months to four weekly interviews In the space of 24 hours. 😂

Prototypes before choosing the new home top.

With business effectively recommending on Monday, increased activity isn't all that surprising.

There must be more to this kits stuff. Although if it was never explained it'd be brilliant.

On the subject of 'tinpot' and shoddy marketing etc., does it bother anyone else how many variations of the Morton badge are floating around these days? I saw that Rangers went through a bit of a brand refresh a few weeks ago and it really emphasise how shoddy ours is (although their Photoshop of the crest onto the Finnieston Crane etc. was pretty weird).

Morton quietly launched an updated crest a few years ago but I'm not even sure those currently at the club are aware or if they've just completely forgotten about it. Aside from the mismatch between that and the older version, we've got all sorts of variations that go on to club marketing materials. I'm no branding expert but with all the chat in the last few years about getting the Morton brand out into the community via the Community Trust's work etc., should we not be focussing on putting one version of the club crest out there (at the very least, having the main one and properly defined variations for particular use)?

Here's some examples (with the first having three versions in the one picture, FFS):

This last one is just outrageous:

Maybe it's not a big deal but it does my nut in anyway.

Variety is the spice of Morton life.

Interesting to hear from hopkin, mackinnon etc. All saying pretty much the same things. In terms of the squad it's the every least to expect players, to fight for the jersey but is that enough? Hopkin saying we can add 2/3 more players to have a good squad. There has to be a goalkeeper, right back and a centre back coming in which means we won't be bringing in any other players. Think it's clear to see that we need someone who is going to at least replace the goals that mchugh scored but ideally do better. Can't see a 10/15 a season goalscorer in that squad. 

I like the idea of the crowdies and it sounds like mackinnon has been working behind the scenes to get the new website up and running and also looking at the commercial side and how bring in income. 

All of these prototype tops are just bizarre though. Surely something has to come of these although I wouldn't be surprised if they are auctioned off.

Is our logo a trade mark? Probably not a big deal if it's not.

There must have been some sort of fan vote planned for the new kit and COVID scuppered it with everyone in the club going on furlough.  It would be hilarious if they never confirm it though


here today, gone to hell
