I mentioned this earlier this week, but how dubious is it that MLB bans logos on players' uniforms, but the commissioner's old team has a hat insignia looks like this:



and the logo of their stadium sponsor looks like this:



Just similar enough to put the product in mind; just different enough for plausible deniablitity.

I don't fear the Mets replacing the NY with a Met Life-like M --- yet --- but the Brewer hat seems like an ugly precedent.

Yeah, that was pretty obvious from the outset..

That being said, it looks like the new owner (who isn't from Milwaukee and therefore doesn't care what the scions of Milwaukee brewing think) may well revert to the MB glove logo.
