  1. Once again, I'm starting to remember why I avoid this page. I made a positive post praising a fellow board member and got trolled all to hell for something that's widely accepted at most other message boards. I also noticed that no one had the decency to quote me directly when said trolling was taking place. All because I didn't *snip* down the quote that I was praising. So much for positivity. That's apparently out the window here.
  2. MOD EDIT: Name calling and that kind of language isn't necessary.
  3. Wow. Great point. I never thought of that. Less room between the bars on the facemask means less chance for an opponent to get their hand in there.
  4. I could not agree more about the Bears. IMO the 1940's "Monsters of the Midway" throwbacks that they've worn the last several years have been meh at best. But, the ones they wore this past Sunday, those are absolutely phenomenal.
  5. I would implement the use of the "overbuilt' custom facemasks in the NFL. It's fun, interesting, looks phenomenal, and gives the players that use them a trademark.
  6. I think the current Giants helmets are fantastic. But, the GIANTS ones are infinitely better.
  7. The color of the Jets new helmet is beautiful. Absolutely striking. Even more stunning in person. They missed the mark on the helmet logo and the black facemask however.
  8. I could not agree more with all of you. While the Falcons uniforms from the late 80's and Early 90's with the black helmets were nice, their red helmets are PHENOMENAL. Especially with the black jersey.
  9. I'll also add that my #'s 2 through 6 in my uniform rankings under my username to the left will tell you all you need to know about where I think some of these helmet designs need to go.
  10. As a helmet junkie myself, this is a FANTASTIC write up. The comments are hilarious. Love the use of pics.
  11. I respect your opinion but, I'm not a fan at all. I'm a proponent of going with classic Bucco Bruce with some slight updates like smoother lines and a **little bit** more detail (see the Lions current logo for reference as to what I'm picturing). This one is too much.
  12. Yeah that version of the Bear head was used extensively as a secondary logo in the 1980's and early 90's. I actually prefer it to the retro orange bear head logo that the Bears currently use because the current one looks more like a tiger than a Bear. I can't tell you how many times I've been wearing one of my orange Bear head caps and someone here on the east coast said "So, you're a Bengals fan huh!?“
