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.
