It's getting very good feedback on Twitter and Facebook, and Soccer Newsday columnist Nick Chavez mentions it in his article this morning on the vote.
He goes on to write "in truth, I would be pleased with whatever the fans choose," and I agree with him there. But as a fan, I want nothing but the best for my new club.
Originally partial to the idea of the New York City seal-shaped idea (though feeling like it was missing something), and the uniqueness of its shape as a football club badge, I find myself leaning towards Chance’s tweak of the design.
Chavez also quotes Claudio Reyna, the club's Sporting Director, who said this about the process:
"This badge is to be the symbol of our Club, a symbol of our players and we hope in time, a symbol of this City. That is why we decided to give our fans the power to take part in such a fundamental way."And we're grateful for it, Mr. Reyna. So grateful, indeed, that I wanted to put my own efforts forward in the creation of that symbol. I feel the club is so close to a truly perfect design, featuring the best elements of Rafael Esquer's two designs.
If you agree, let the club know!
