New EaglesFanCast Logo

We are thrilled to release our new logo for EaglesFanCast today! As I wrote about a few weeks ago, we are making changes to what EaglesFanCast is. We have already added on two new blog contributors, Holden and Steve, and one more that our podcast listeners will be familiar with very soon. They are excited to be part of EFC, and we could not be happier to have them involved.

The second thing that is happening is our new logo.  We loved the old one and it served us well for the first couple years, but it was looking dated and was in need of a makeover.  The original logo encompassed the helmet and the media player that symbolizes only a small part of what this new media space is.  We felt that moving forward with a completely new design would embody a unique style all our own.

Paul Muller, the man behind Puzzle Piece Productions, is a fellow podcaster, is out of Philadelphia and is, of course, a big Eagles fan.  I worked closely with Paul to bring this new design together, and he both spearheaded the concept based on the sketches I envisioned and supplied, and ran with it, developing a completely new look.  He was both patient and accommodating with my many changes and tweaks, and didn’t complain once!  LOL  I want to thank Paul for an amazing job, and we are psyched to finally show it off.

Besides the logo you see above, which will be for the overall EFC presence, there will be a secondary logo, shown at the right.  This will be used specifically for our podcast. This logo will be part of any of the sites and locations that are specific to the podcast show itself, such as on the iTunes Store, Zune Marketplace, TPS Radio, and any podcast directories we are listed in such as blubrry or Podcast Alley.

So tell us what you think!  If you like it, please also go visit Paul at his site, especially if you know of someone that needs logo and graphics work done.  Obviously he does a great job.

What I Bring To the Table

Birds Fans,

Holden Fulco here, and I’m proud to say that I am a newly minted contributer to EaglesFanCast. This is the first of what I hope will be many more posts to come, so I just wanted to give a few details on what I hope to bring to the blog.

First of all, I am an Eagles fan, through and through. I truly believe that as a “displaced” fan from Louisiana, I have a unique viewpoint on and a great appreciation for the football team we all bleed green for. I aim to bring a southern flair and a little bit different perspective on anything and everything that involves the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as provide some useful historical background for anything that I may ramble about on the website.

My philosophy is that history repeats itself until changes are made, so, with the conclusion of the Super Bowl just over a week ago, my first series of posts will be titled: “The Perfect Recipe: What Does It Take To Be A Champion.” This will be an in-depth look at past successes and failures of the Eagles over the decade, as well as the winning formula for that elusive Lombardi Trophy.

That’s all I have for now. Thanks again to Chuck, Eric and Todd for this amazing opportunity. You can look for the first installment of “The Perfect Recipe” by this weekend.

GO BIRDS!

Changes at EaglesFanCast

Here at the blog, we have mostly maintained it as a Show Notes repository for the podcast.  The podcast has been great, and our numbers have been growing.  We have been getting some amazing feedback in both email and voicemails, and it’s great to see the reach that the podcast has.  We have people listening and interacting from all over the country and internationally as well.

When we started this, we figured most people would be Eagles fans from within the Philadelphia region.  Now it appears that half of our listenership is outside this area.  The feedback we have received also shows that our listeners appreciate the fan-sided approach of what we do.  That is intentional, as none of us are sports analysts, nor have aspirations to be.  It’s good to see that what we are doing is coming out as planned.  We really are Eagles fans, and we have a podcast talking about it… it really is that simple.

But we want more for this project.  From the beginning we wanted other fans to be part of this.  We started with email, and allowing comments on this blog site.  Not too long after, we opened a voicemail line, and have received some great and passionate voicemails that emails just cannot convey.  A few months ago we started recording our shows live on Ustream.tv, so there can be a real-time chat room and you can interact with us, plus inject comments right into our show.  That has been a great experience for us, and one or all three of us have hung out in the chat room before and after the recording talking about the Eagles, the show and just about anything.

We wanted this site to take another step further, and give another angle of being an Eagles Fan.  You have all heard the three of us banter on for 79 shows about our fandom.  So we reached out to a few loyal listeners and those that have written in with some great content.  We wanted to get the opinions not just from an email, we wanted real thoughts to post on the site.

We are very happy to announce that the first new contributor to our site is Holden Fulco.  You have heard us read his emails on the air many times, and may have seen him in the chat room as well.  Holden lives in the Super Bowl state of Louisiana, surrounded by elated Saints fans.  Holden is very excited to be a part of EaglesFanCast, and we welcome him to our little addiction.

Look for Holden’s first post soon right here!

As always we welcome feedback and suggestions on everything EFC.  Look for more site updates and changes, and even more contributors in the coming months.

Go EAGLES!!!
