The NFL Debuts New Logo That Looks Exactly Like The Old One

Thursday, August 30, 2007

Just look at those radical changes I mean the blue....the blue is just darker. And that football standing up and looking so proud.

The league is creating a leaner, meaner version of the iconic logo that will debut at the NFL draft in April, 2008. The revamped shield will be slightly taller and thinner, with a new football, fewer stars and darker colors, says Lisa Baird, the NFL's senior vice president of marketing. The redesign marks the first changes to the shield since 1980.

At the NFL's annual meeting this spring, commissioner Roger Goodell talked about the NFL Shield as the "envy of the sports world." The league has been careful to make an "evolutionary, not a radical change," says Baird.
I disagree completely Ms. Baird! Less stars is radical as it can get. And the reason for less stars on the logo?

"We took one out for each of our fallen homeys of the past year. Vick, Tank, Pacman, and Rhodes just to name a few. We may have to go back to the drawing board with the announcement of Frostee's suspension today though."- Lisa Baird*

Hmmm...did they try to make it look less like the US flag (less stars) for international favor?

Not to be picky toward a cliche, but what exactly makes this "new" logo "meaner".

It's NFL 2.0, now with more administration options.

Hollywood, the bunch of retards in the NFL's New York City focus group said the bunch of stars made the logo look "too busy."

Frickin pods, ESPN pods are taking over the world.

Leaner, meaner and crappier. That font sucks and doesn't even go with the fluidity of the bottom of the logo. If it's going to follow the line it should follow the line.

It's completely different. One goes "ding ding ding da da ding ding" and the other one is like "ding ding ding da da ding".

With all those Viagra adds every game, it's no wonder the football is now more 'erect' than before.

It's pretty obvious this will save the world a lot of ink in printing. The NFL has gone green. Is that so wrong?

I don't know.

Fewer stars do give it an edgier feel.

Like "we don't care bout no solar system round here."
