As long as the laces are out and Einhorn isn't Finkle. 

 

It's 2020.  Finkle can be Einhorn if they so choose.

Don't worry - in a couple of seasons there will be a State Farm logo there.

I remember the UFL having StubHub logos on their helmet bumpers. Honestly wasn't all that noticeable watching live.

This is always said about on-field sports advertisements and it is very bizarre to me because it is an argument in favor of the millionaire advertisers. An acceptance of intrusive advertising solely to make millionaires richer at one's own expense. Not calling you out specifically of course, just a comment on the common pattern I always see when more and more ads get put in sports.

 

Also the helmet ad would be prominent and eye-catching every time a player is shown in close-up, which happens multiple times every minute.

The NFL had helmet ads for decades.

It’s probably a little different when the helmet ad is for the helmet manufacturer.

It's really not.  It's still a logo that's not the team's that was put there for a price.

Man thats a gorgeous matchup.

 

No I think the endless helmet is silly. I like the solid 'M'. It has a nice traditional feel to it. The Dolphin wearing a picture of itself is kind of odd. I don't think if a character in a logo is wearing equipment it needs to be 100% the exact same as what the players are wearing.


I was hoping that the Dolphins were going to do something different with their initial color rush unis and go all teal with a white helmet with just that M logo on it.

I wonder if they actually PAID for that ad? I mean, did Riddell have to fork over money for their product placement?

I'm not arguing with you that it WASS in fact an ad, I just wonder if didn't dawn on the league to charge for it.

That scene was pretty offensive even at the time, and yet it's somehow managed to age even more poorly.

Riddell forked over money to be "the official helmet provider" the same way that Wilson forks over money to be "the official football" and Nike forks over money to pretend they make the uniforms.  The logo comes with it.

That whole movie is pretty yikes these days, especially since Jim Carrey went into a bit of a dark place over the past decade or so (anti-vax for a bit and doing a bad Andy Kaufman approximation, among other incidents).

Wasn't it just a parody of The Crying Game?

Gothamite answered it pretty well, but yes - they did pay for it.  That's why while players could wear any helmet they wanted, only Riddell ones could have the logo.  It wasn't something that just slipped through the league's view.

Yes, it was. 
 

But no “just” about it.

Right, the joke relies on taking the Crying Game scene to absurdity and that the idea that then-notable actress Sean Young could possibly be a man is also absurd. This one's a dead end, sorry!

Ad patches aren’t that bad. It’s not going to be full blown soccer. They’re ok in the NBA. CFL has had adds for years and it looks fine. They retail jerseys aren’t going to be sold with ads
