Super Bowl 50 Aesthetics

These past 2 weeks have made me realize that the Broncos logo is awesome. Yes their uniforms are becoming/have already become outdated, but their logo is great. I know that might be unpopular on here but overtime I look at it, it makes me realized more and more that it's quite the great logo. Easily top 10 in league, and could make a case top 5.

I don't know if it's unpopular or not, but I agree. Design wise, the new logo is far better than the old "D."

Yeah everything about the Broncos current logo package absolutely kills their previous look.

 

All they really need to do is change back to the navy home set and they're pretty much perfect. I kinda hope they never change.

Well EA Sports released their annual Madden Super Bowl predictions, and several times Panthers socks turn from black to blue.

Not to mention that the patches are awful looking. They don't look anything like the real thing, they're not even on all the jerseys, and they're on the wrong side of the jersey.

Even Madden thinks it's better to have the conference logos in the endzones :P

I can't agree. Cyber-horse just feels dated to me. The old D logo as it was had its flaws, but I'll take an updated version of it over the current, which just screams "1997."

So check out this video and scroll to the 1:43 mark.  Denver's endzone, which was the first graphics to be painted on the field (less the numbers, etc) has gone from navy blue to not painted.  What is going on here?

 

edit:  ok, not sure how to insert a video on here.  Just go here and watch.

For those asking why divisions aren't important if conferences are...

 

If you win the AFC North, no matter what your record, etc, you're in the AFC playoffs. #1, 2, 3, or 4. Wild card? #5 or #6. That's it. There's no way for those 16 teams to wind up playing on the other half of the bracket. No matter how good or bad they are. There's no cross-over. So, the conference is important. Otherwise, it would just be a 12-team competition with any final outcome for the Super Bowl. Panthers-Packers, Broncos-Patriots, Cardinals-Bengals. Wouldn't matter how it shook out. All 32 teams would have a theoretical chance of playing one of the 31 other teams in the Super Bowl.

 

With conferences, there's 15 teams you will never play that year in the Super Bowl even if you did make it all the way. But, there's 15 teams you will have to go through, to get to the Super Bowl. Either through the regular season seeding of the playoffs, or the playoff games themselves.

I think everybody understands this. It's just, nobody gives a :censored: that the AFC won last year or the NFC won the year before. They care the Pats won last year and the Seahawks won the year before. Teams are playing for individual notoriety and awards, not for the conference.

Again, I give a :censored:. Teams are playing for individual notoriety and awards and they're playing for the conference. When the NFC went 13 straight years without losing a Super Bowl that was embarrassing as a fan of an AFC team. It made our side of the bracket feel pointless. I was happy the Broncos won in 97 and more than anything it was because it ended that streak.

The very existence of the Super Bowl is tied to the merger of the NFL and the AFL, which later became the conferences in the newly-merged league.  That's part of the DNA of the event.

And then, during the 1980s, the NFC's dominance over the AFC in the Super Bowl became a frequent topic of conversation.  It was part of the lore of the Super Bowl.  Here is a story from the L.A. Times in 1993 on this phenomenon; it predicts that Dallas will beat Buffalo in Super Bowl XXVII based solely on the fact that the NFC team had won the past eight Super Bowls and 10 of the previous 11, in a streak that would ultimately get to 13 straight and 15 of 16.

The point is that the teams' conference affilliations are an inherent part of the story of the Super Bowl.   An "N" and and "A" in each endzone -- or, as Cujo and j'villejags suggested, at the 25-yard lines -- would be the appropriate way to illustrate this importance, and would in no way clutter up anything. In fact, either placement would improve the look of the field; and the endzone placement would add greater balance to that part of the field.

P.S. on the English language: "notoriety" is not a synonym for "fame"; it means "the state of being well known for something bad".

Noticed this myself. The video shows the sideline Broncos logo fully painted in, complete with navy background, while the end zone still didn't have the navy fill in it yet. The still photos show the exact opposite - the end zone is fully painted while the sideline is still undone. I looked at it in deference to the NFL shield, and this art looks to be place correctly (it's not the first errantly painted Broncos end zone).  I have no idea what gives.

Interesting...

 

Maybe they got the colour wrong?  The Blue looks a lot lighter in the pic you posted.

 

Didn't somebody earlier say they were surprised they painted the field so soon, thinking they would have to redo it later?

Looks like the field is in need of a new paint job:

I am not a field painting expert, but did the blue fade that fast??  Or did they strip it?

 

 

Then you have this pic, which is listed as 3 hours ago:
