Please tell me the new logo is closer to the Super Bowl era set.

 

 

For the love of all that is holy. PLEASE. 

Yyyyyyeeeeaaah I'm right here with my man Dan on this one--IF they've chosen to hold onto the Jolly Roger imagery. If not, then I don't know that I wanna see a swooshkateered version of Bucco Bruce break the light of day (although NFL Properties has in times past farmed out certain work to a certain select few private entities to collaborate with them, so it may not be so bad if that's what they've decided on).

 

I suppose asking @Teal if the new logos are red-heavy or orange-heavy would be giving too much away, so in a bold stealthy employ of paraleipsis, I won't do that. 😉 And speaking of Teal, I know the dude's been annoying with his tidbits in times past, but he's also been mostly on point with many of the latest rebrands, so I'm willing to give him (or her?) a bass--but dude (or gal), PLEASE don't resort to the antics again...save what credibility you have!

If they're going to a white helmet, then that's a dramatic enough shift that I'd rather them drop all current themes.  Their whole pirate schtick, with the ships in the stadium, is pretty cool - but it's unique to the pewter era.  It can certainly work with white, but IMO they'd be doing it for the sole purpose of having a throwback option available, which sucks.

I can confirm new logo and unis are coming. 


Great open ended statement. You are 100% correct since this can mean anything from 1 to 100000 years.

Is it really necessary to clarify that? In the context, it’s pretty clear he meant next season.

Oh please continue.... 

 

Posters like this are the reason I don't post the evidence and pics I do have.

 

Entitlement is not a good look.

Neither is petulance.  
 

The reason you don’t post the evidence and pics you do have is because you’re contractually forbidden from doing so.  Which is totally fine and understandable, everybody respects that.  But let’s don’t pretend it’s the fault of those posters who don’t fawn over the few morsels you are comfortable dropping.

Teal, you could be a legend on this forum since it really does seem like you have access to info that so many of us crave. But you ruin it with how you approach this stuff. Maybe just try being more chill about everything?

I believe there were some white helmets included as options in the 1997 design...and they were not nearly as good as what they went with.  

 

I love the creamsicles more than almost anyone.  But I really hope they don't marginalize their look to shoehorn in a once-annual throwback.  Assuming they continue with the look(s) of 1997-today, a pewter helmet is an absolute must.  At this point, it's kinda the one positive thing that is unique to them.  You can't make everyone happy...so don't try.

So the current helmet with the large flag was released in February 2014, so i guess its possible we get a teaser sometime after the Super Bowl.

 

Selfishly, I hope the logo doesn't change a whole lot, since i got a lot of new swag (hats, shirts, etc) in the past year.

 

Also.... #LongLivePewter #SayNoToCreamsicle

That wannabe-Terminator logo isn't "fine" at all.

This isn't something I wanted to reveal, but in lieu of what's about to be released, I felt it's time to open up a bit.

 

I have several contacts/inside sources for many design firms who have routinely worked for/with Nike and the NFL, among other huge sports institutions.  Through our conversations around uni design, they have trusted my discretion for silence in return for routine "goodies" on what's in development and about to come.  I've provided these sources and verification credentials to the moderation team, but in the spirit of transparency I will list these sources at the end of my post for your scrutiny.  Some of these have been censored for privacy/legal reason.

 

Here is what I know, and I apologize in advance for the lack of specifics - NDAs have been signed, etc. 

 

  • The Tampa Bay Bucs are indeed going to a "hybrid" of their looks that may or may not be what either side of the argument wants.  My source has seen the WIP of the design and will only comment that he believes it is "dope."
  • Browns fans should be pleased.  My insider friend believes the "new" look will be revealed with new league year.  When poked for more, this individual texted me, "Vikings."  They wouldn't say more, but based on several pictures (linked at the end of this post) you can surmise that the Browns will be reverting to more retro-influenced threads.
  • The thing that collectively has my people in shivers is the surprise redesign that they've been strictly forbidden from discussing.  I've tried my damnedest to glean more information, but they're not willing to say as the names on the NDAs are few, and it'll be out around draft-time anyway.  My best guess is that the 49ers will be getting a new helmet and uniform set, but I wouldn't rule out the Cowboys either.  They all seem to KNOW what it is, but they won't say, other than to give a general vibe of the inevitable outrage that it will spawn.
