We don't love the original crest (inset), but this new design makes us yearn to see it more. Where do we begin picking at this one? The frightening bird heads on the shoulders? The shin-pad socks? No, let's start at the confused front. Thrashers across the chest and a number centered below look more like a basketball uniform, though one waggish league exec opined: ''No, more like an arena football jersey... Wait, no, like a Canadian arena football jersey.''
