How long until Patriots figure out how to hack other teams hemets to steal their plays and/or make them run different plays?

If you're not hacking, you're not trying.

That looks cool and all, but the sport will not survive unless it gets rid of helmets. New fancy billboard helmets are a step in the wrong direction. 

I don't see helmets going away anytime soon. But honestly, stuffing the helmets full of fancy expensive tech might subconsciously convince players to be careful with them and not use them as battering rams. And that would accomplish the same goal as getting rid of them entirely would.

I think you're right. The NFL in general doesn't like logos that omit team colors (which is a big reason why the Packers revised their logo in 1980 and the Steelers theirs in 1997).

Whoa. Wait up.

 

The 1969-01 Steelers logo already included the team's colors.

The Patriots are marching down the field in overtime of Super Bowl LI, but the most heated action isn't on the field. Behind the scenes, raucous bidding is taking place between the league's biggest advertisers-- unprecedented maneuvering for this unprecedented turn of events. The Patriots line up on the Falcons' two-yard line. A winner is declared. Tom Brady pitches the ball to James White. A few quick keystrokes from an NFL technician activate White's state-of-the-art OLED helmet display just after the RB clutches the ball. As the 112 million live viewers around the world collectively hold their breath, they see an incredible effort by White to reach the end zone... and a Taco Bell logo flash to life on his helmet.

 

I can't wait for the future.

Not gonna lie, those helmets look sweet. The molded facemask is my favorite part, I'm surprised it's not already a thing.

You really think players would be worried about expensive OLED displays on their helmets?

Since the Rams will remove the gold from their logo, would this look better?

I still think royal and gold should be the number one choice.

I guess there is a splash of red in this one, depending on what year you're talking about.
