Is this what we will be possibly getting with the way the backdrop is and all.

The more I see it, the more it pisses me off.

(Not your particular photoshop... I mean the fact that this logo system is still around)

I found it on Google but about the logo system, if this is still around in about 10-15 years and they hold it at a venue twice, it's going to look exactly the same on merchandise. If anything the current system cheapens everything.

Oh trust me, that wont happen. The people running the NFL aren't dumb... just greedy. I still wont bet on this system being around too much longer.

I really don't get the hate for the "logo system". While I'm not sold on the actual design, I totally understand the desire to stress the title rather than the venue. The NBA does it, the NHL does it, and while I get that the NFL is different because it's known in advance where the game will be played and it's a neutral site, I think that the consistency of knowing that you're playing for the right to wear that silver patch on your jersey every year is a good thing.

I understand we're a bunch of logo / design / art / marketing / etc. fans on this board, and I totally understand why people love the unique site-specific logos (including the anticipation of their release, the critiquing of them, the concepts, etc.) but I also think that it makes a lot of sense from the NFL's perspective to standardize things.

It's one of those things where I really don't think it's wrong to do it one way vs doing it the other. Frankly, I'm in favor of standardizing, but there's pros and cons to each. I can understand loving the old way or loving the new way, but I can't understand hating either way.

Pure brilliance.... Couldn't agree more.

Very good point. As long as they keep a unique secondary logo, I can live with the standardized primary.

This could have been perfect! According to the logo's backstory, this was an ode to the Radio City facade. Oh how I wish this was it.

all we need is someone to create the previous three super bowl mock logos and we can pretend this logo system never existed
