I think only the Titans, Seahawks, and Lions (new black accents in 2002). Might be missing a couple. Cardinals missed the timing by a year, Patriots missed it by two years. Ravens updated helmet logo the year after their stadium opened. 

The Lions didn't add black until 2003, Ford Field opened in 2002.

Yes.  But again, this is a photoshop rendering.  We don't know how accurately it reflects the actual embroidery.

Looks interesting, though.

 

The more that I see this I think it belongs on the hood of a pickup truck.

The horn part is an improvement on this render, but whatever is going on in the face (shadow?) is strange.

Only to us nerds on this site.

And not to all of us nerds on this site.

That's what I would've thought but over the past few years I've got a number of questions from friends that aren't into design, but know that I am, asking why the Rams uniforms are mismatched. I was pleasantly surprised at how many "lay people" were noticing the issue. I'm not sure they could've pin pointed it but I think a majority knew there was something wrong with the look.

Now that someone pointed out the penis shaped nose I cannot un-see it and I hate it

Penis-shaped nose > LA crescent moon

I actually like this version better with the gray shading on the face. One thing I didn't like about the head logo originally was the face was just blah, but this helps. 

 

Just had an epiphany... the face is too fat, use the shadow and remove the rest, this looks much better to my eye.

I don't mind the shadow (and hey, we get to use Bone again!), but I think removing half the face makes the whole too insubstantial.

I think the whole just looks like he got popped in the jaw and it's swollen. But I'm guessing it's supposed to be the actual face not the skull? I just liked the skull form better that they have in the old school versions.

They've never used a skull logo, though.

 

And even the old one had a pretty wide face.

Crazy. I would've sworn those were skulls but you are right. OK, well maybe they SHOULD be a skull. 🙂

Part of the issue, for me, with the Rams' new secondary logo...is the ram head doesn't even have a line for the mouth. It's nose, eyes and...a blob.

Like, just giving the ram a line for a mouth really makes me like the logo a fair bit more. It's not amazing, but it's at least better.

And if you give it a proper eye, I do think it actually looks rather decent in spite of the stupid gradient on the horns. The problem is both the mouth line and eye are just...not there on the official logo. It's so overly-simplified that it looks like someone threw it together in like half an hour before the reveal and skipped over things due to crunch.

 

Now to test on colored backdrops...

Wow, it's almost like adding just the tiniest bit more detail to it makes it look a lot better. I actually really like the eyes+mouth version of it, if I'm honest.

Don’t worry, when I was younger playing Madden with legend teams, I always thought it was a skull too. That was the only place I’d seen it at the time, and the scale/resolution of the logo wasn’t always as good on my TV. It wasn’t until I got a better and larger look at it later that I realized it wasn’t a skull at all.

It amazes me that all of you can utilize your photoshop skills and improve a logo that was put together by NFL/Rams representatives and "world-class design teams". Would it kill them to use this forum as a focus group!?

Adding to the hilarity of the Rams' rebrand...

NFL Live literally used the Rams' new logo to refer to the Chargers today, in spite of the Chargers literally just debuting their own new logo. Even professional outlets are :censored:ing up which team this stupid LA logo belongs to, that ain't a good sign your shiny new brand is very good.

All teams should seek this board's help imo.  If not for actual work for opinions at least.

Call it an unpopular opinion if you want, but the Ram head logo is worse than the LA primary. Honestly, the only good ram head they’ve ever had was the previous primary, all the others have been awful

That’s just ESPN being really really lazy. 

 

A lot of people at ESPN aren’t the brightest.

I feel this way too.  The real old rams logos look like it's in agony.

There have been no good Rams logos, ever. Great uniforms, great helmets, great wordmarks, nice color palettes (even the GSOT set had its moment), but whenever they've had to draw a male sheep it's looked like crap.
