Los Angeles Rams Confirm Throwback Uniforms For Super Bowl

If others prefer a happy medium, maybe the helmet horn on its own could possibly work (perhaps within a blue circle in order to be used against backgrounds colored other than blue). 

 

Fox has done this at times in interstitial gamebreak graphics and the like, with just a disembodied gold horn serving as a logo. It doesn't work without context.

This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I think both the Browns and Rams should update their helmet logos (provided the latter continues to use it for the foreseeable future) to a modern style. Both originated with a two-bar helmet and developed from there, so I see no reason to keep their current styles given the last of those helmets are being phased out of the league by next year. Only issue with that, of course, would be settling on the style. I imagine the RevoSpeed would be the most friendly from a design standpoint, but the SpeedFlex is probably most appropriate in today’s game.

If anything, the Browns should roll their logo back to the old one-bar helmet. The whole idea of the Browns is supposed to be that they're traditional and old. What would be older than that? Well, a leather helmet, but then it wouldn't make any sense. But that way, instead of having the same helmet logo that everyone has a version of, it would just be a proprietary logo that is a helmet.

Then you would have the standard whiners complain that that helmet is unsafe and causes PTSD of a time where the league encouraged concussions and it would probably create another lawsuit. So, no.

I disagree. The helmet logo style everyone uses comes from a time when most helmets were of a, broadly speaking, standardized design. You could make a generic football helmet logo that looked like every football helmet. 

 

These days? There is no singular “new” style to reference. You point it out yourself. The problem with updating would be “settling” on a style. No one style is as universal as the older one you want to replace. Even the RevoSpeed has this issue. It’s not widespread enough to be the “default.”

 

The older style helmets that formed the basis for the Rams and Browns’ helmet logos may be gone sooner rather than later but so what? It’s still recognizable as the “football” helmet. It’s like the floppy disk icon on the “Save” button. An anachronism that still conveys the intended message.

What? Is this a joke? This is drivel.

Saw this on the mothership, just redraw this a little bit and that says Cleveland Browns just fine.

It just feels like an era gone by. I wouldn’t find it acceptable to use a leather helmet two-bar facemask, either, even those are still “recognizable” as a football helmet. They’ve both been updated throughout the years to match the then-current style, so it shouldn’t be shocking to see someone suggest another update. 

 

My biggest argument is truly that neither is truly a logo: They are simply a representation of what their helmets look(ed) like, but are applied by these teams as if they are a logo.  @the admiral even pointed out how every team has/had a version of that exact helmet with their specific design on it.

 

There’s nothing unique or inherently Browns/Rams about them, and nothing that ties either team to these specific helmet styles. However, rather than updating the style of helmet, I’d honestly rather see the Rams continue to use their actual logo and the Browns use the elf or create something new to encapsulate what the Browns represent.

I could be wrong, but this has to be the fastest turn around between Championship game Sunday and the field already being painted with photos online. I remember past years hoping the end zones would be visible during media day and being disappointed.

The other problem with using a modern helmet is that the styles are brand-specific, so the team would be inadvertently endorsing / advertising one specific brand.

agree...better off going with a generic vintage helmet design (possibly without facemask?) which evokes the era of nostalgia and simpler times for the sport.

Why did the NFL absolutely insist for so long that they weren’t going to let the Rams mess with their set even despite the move? I mean, they ended up caving this season anyway on the uniforms, and anyone could’ve gauged that this was what the fans wanted from day one. Now we have a situation where the Super Bowl uniform set and logos that go with it are all throwback logos, and we have this entirely different set of logos in a different color scheme out there to just to muddle the whole thing up. They should’ve just let them recolor the Ram head logo to royal and yellow from the beginning and avoided this whole mess. Instead they tried to “protect the brand” and ended up just :censored:ing it up even worse.

I find it funny that the Rams always had the ram horns on TV but the Browns just used a wordmark.

Because the Rams were being unreasonable? And the NFL bought them a sucker when they threw a tantrum at the supermarket checkout?

I mean, the Chargers could go back to San Diego because nobody wants them in LA. They could also wear good uniforms. Both would be positive changes. But you're right that nobody is going to confuse the two teams.

 

I wish the Chargers went back to San Diego but they can't. They do wear good uniforms, they don't need to change for their naysayers.

Why can't they go back? Their stadium is still there and the city would still like them back...

San Diego hates Dean Spanos. They probably won't be accepted back unless the team is sold to somebody else.

I think the NFL in San Diego is pretty much dead. Not only do they hate Spanos, but they're redeveloping the stadium into a campus site for SDSU with a smaller stadium for the Aztecs.
