Review: AUDL Bluegrass Revolution

Next in the series evaluating the 8 AUDL team logos and nicknames.
Team: Bluegrass Revolution // Website: http://bluegrassrevolution.com/

Colors: Green, Black, Grey // Representation: State

Disc within logo?: Yes. //  Ultimate element in team name?: Yes. (disc spins)

History/Research: Formerly named "River City" (a nickname for Louisville), bluegrass refers to the geographic region in the state of Kentucky. The fleur-de-lis (flower of lillies) is the Official Seal of the City of Louisville representing French aid given during the Revolutionary War. Lexington - about 75 miles east of the 'Ville - is the location of the team's home field.

First impression(s): Logo could be an Irish bar in New Orleans; or, a Qu├ębec spin class. Apt Ultimate team, as it is for a song (Beatles), a remedy (Che), as well as a California band playing alt-country, gypsy jazz, blues & progressive acoustic music.

Jeremiah's Eval: The Fleur-de-lis could very well be clipart. The font is unidentifiable, but looks threatening. Although the outline of the font is done poorly. Some serifs have white outlines that are pointed and others that are flat, it might be nice if they were all pointed to enforce the aggressive feeling of the font. There is a sliver between the "T" and "I" that could easily poke an eye out. The black outline has a few misguided spikes that need to be looked after above the "N".

Jeremiah's Grade: D

What are your thoughts on this AUDL's team name & logo?
