Up next in the Reno Ice Adult League concept is Slappy Gilmores. For this concept Slappy Gilmores are know for being one of the most aggressive teams in the league. In this concept they hold records for things like most penalty minutes, most suspensions, longest suspension and so on. The Slappy Gilmores are the 1970’s Philadelphia Flyers of the RIAL concept.
Slappy Gilmores Primary Logo
The primary logo is an alligator head with the team name below it. The team name is at an angle to help it stand out from the other teams who have the their name on their primary logo. The team is a reference to the masterpiece film Happy Gilmore. The team name is a mixture of slap shot (which could be a reference to that film) and Happy Gilmore. The alligator in the primary logo only has one eye that is another reference to the film. The teams colors are green and black. I added gold to hep them stand out from the other teams in this concept that also use green and black. The branding for the Slappy Gimores was inspired by Happy Gilmore, lacoste, the Boston Bruins, the Boston Celtics, and the Masters Tournament.
Slappy Gilmores Alternate Logos
The Slappy Gilmores do not have a secondary logo. The first alternate logo is the alligator head from the primary logo. The second alternate logo is the wordmark from the primary logo. The third logo is a G. For this concept the G is part of a tradition for the Slappy Gilmores to have a G logo. The reason for that is because one of their nicknames is “the Gilmores”. Other nicknames they have include, “Slappys”, and “The Big Bad Gilmores”.
The first three logos on the bottom row are for their City jersey. They are inspired by the Masters Tournament. The first of these three logos is Nevada in the style of the Masters logo. Instead of a flag coming out of the whole (like in the masters logo) there is a hockey stick. The tape pattern on the stick is a reference to the putter Happy Gilmore uses in the film. The next logo is a circle logo with the alligator head. That logo was meant to look like a golf logo. The third and final logo in this set is the alligator head recolored for the City jersey.
The last two logos were designed for the Surge jersey. They are remixes of the G logo and alligator logo. They have green outlines with an alligator skin pattern inside.
Slappy Gilmores Throwback Logos
The first logo is a G inside of a circle. It is inspired by the Boston Bruins logo. The reasoning behind this is that Happy Gilmore wears a bruins jerseys throughout the film. For this concept the first logo would have been their original primary logo introduced in the mid 90s. The next two logos are recolored versions of the primary logo. The last logo in the top row is a wordmark logo.
The first three logos in the middle row are wordmark logos. The fourth and fifth logos in the middle row are an alligator with the team name below them. The last logo in the middle row is a circle logo with the primary logo inside of a gold wreath with a crown. It is inspired by the logo on the jacket Happy Gilmore gets for winning.
The first logo on the bottom row is an updated version of the primary logo. For this concept in the mid to late 2000s Slappy Gilmores would have rebranded. The first logo in the bottom row would have been their new primary logo. The second logo in the bottom row is a green outline of a G. The next two logos are updated wordmark logos. The last logo in the bottom row is a stylized version of the primary logo inspired by the 2010 NHL Winter Classic.
