Even Gaviscon got in on the fun.

So now that the outcry has calmed down and the club has come to their senses in regards to the new badge, it’s a little easier to laugh at the whole thing, right? Yeah, when even heartburn medicine is getting in on the fun, the whole thing is officially over, right?

At least the club listened to the fans, and six hours after it was launched, the new badge was binned. Hopefully everyone will like whatever it is the club will come up with.

On to the links.
