So why did they use it?



I assume Mick Higgins, on a whim, just sucummed to the mid 1990's hype?

Most probably the truest explanation in all honesty.

When I go to a game, I say I'm going watching Leigh.

When I see the Centurion logo, I automatically think of Leigh Centurions

The Centurion logo works as we know what it symbolizes

Exactly Roy,and for that reason you just can't change it or lose it,without a very costly marketing plan. Could you imagine the cost to Procter & Gamble if they decided to change the name of Fairy Liquid! Or decided not to put Fairy on the bottle?

When Bongser goes to a game, he says he's going watching Leigh.

When Bongser sees the Centurion logo, he automatically think of Atomic. Cokey has started to muddy the waters though. Then there's always Frank's cap!

Never have bought into the Centurions identity. It's as silly as a bombardier wearing full officer's dress uniform to advertise ale. Leigh pure and simple.

Should Proctor & Gamble start sponsoring RL, Bongser would rather Fairy appear on the shirts of the proposed NY, NY Nylons (or whatever they turn out to be marketed as).

Marketing, Schmarketing. Pah!

Now when I think of fairies, I will think of you (in a washing up kind of way) :D :D :D

The 'newer' logo, i.e not the 100 year centenary logo is too me an abomination, a monstrous carbuncle (to coin old Big Ears phrase).
I thought & still think the original Centurion logo was great but the newest version appears crayoned by a class of 5 year olds & screams Comedy Club to me. That said, I bought all 3 versions of the jersey last season & will buy at least one next as I emotionally & financially support the Club.

Wish I could post a photo of the logo I prefer on here but the site is backward at best.

They should have stuck with the Centurions,the logo was never needed and now becomes a hinderance becuase it takes precedence over the crest. Someone made a right balls of it and now we are stuck with it.

If you look at the logo what does it tell you about Leigh 'Centurions'?

It appears to show a Centurion with a look that suggests he is turning away from the Centurions name in disgust.

It should never have been commissioned. It would never have been given more than 1 second thought if I was running the show.

The logo is a first class example of a re branding disaster. I can not believe it got past the drawing board and that it is even still in use.

All in my humble opinion of course.

Shirt looks good, but reading the list of sponsors, will we be able to see it? More badges than a well qualified (boy) scout! Hope it doesn't make them too heavy to run in. :lol:
