REPORT: Australian Football Club Essendon To Evaluate If Bombers Logo Is ‘Offensive’

Oh, give me a break.

Known as the Bombers, Australian rules football club Essendon could reportedly change their logo, removing the aircraft that’s in the middle of its emblem.

Essendon will survey their fanbase on whether or not they believe that the bomber military aircraft is “offensive,” according to The Herald Sun. Both the nickname and bomber image have been in place for the club since 1940. Founded in 1872, Essendon has other names that they’ve gone by as well — the Red and Blacks and the Same Olds.

The current design for the logo was created in 1997, with the aircraft being a connection to the club’s location to Melbourne Airport. As of this time, there is no indication that Essendon will change their nickname, according to The Age.

“I’d be very disappointed if the Bomber was gone.”
