So it's possible for a new age helmet to have the internal workings of a Vicis, while the exterior has the simple mold of the old school Riddell helmets?


Probably.  
 

But that would defeat the whole purpose, if you can’t instantly tell what helmet the player is wearing. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Yeah since teams don't put the helmet maker mark on the bumper anymore, the helmet makers have to distinguish their models by the shell design.

I'll bet you an internet dollar (whatever that is) that it isn't.

This was in response to 'I'll bet the one helmet rule is changing'.

 

I win 🙂

Why did they make their jersey template worse?

I agree, the untouchable template with minimal seams all on the back are perfect.

It's rumored that someone somewhere heard that someone hoped to talk about it.

Another winner in the 'one helmet rule' stuff.

 

People, if there is a LEGITIMATE rumor about this, someone will have it here. Remember next year that unless you hear discussion of it leading up to the spring rules meeting, it isn't worth getting your hopes up (or not if you are like @oldschoolvikings and me, among others).

Yes, the plan announced last year was to unveil an alternate this year & a 4th next season.

 

I'm guessing this year's will be a sol jersey paired with the blue pants. Depending on the one-helmet rule decision they might do a navy & white throwback next season.

I'm hoping it's an all white uniform and they mix in the white jerseys and pants with the normal blue and gold jerseys/pants so we don't have to see that dumb "bone" color as much

spacer.pngThis is probably an unpopular opinion because it seems like most people want Washington to change up everything related to their team name and logo but I think they should bring back this logo (minus the feather) and uniform and change the name to Warriors.

The only maker's mark since the late 80's early 90's was riddell because they paid to be the official supplier. Also for a couple decades you only had 2 shells on the field, riddell and schutt so the schutt's were either unbranded or had team branding on the bumpers.

That would be a tough sell. It wouldn’t work as a primary logo either. A Roman or Greek warrior? I’m all for it, but the team would have to explicitly say and show that to be the case.

Unless they're wearing a yellow jersey, the Rams should always wear yellow pants.

They can keep the current W logo as the primary logo and use the spearhead on the helmet and as a secondary logo.

Doesn’t change the fact that the logo and name can very easily be a reference to native Americans without the explicit distinction showing a Greek soldier, or something Washington should stay as far from the warrior name and that spear logo.

If anybody thinks Washington, regardless of what name they choose, would give two seconds thought to the idea of putting a spear on the helmet, they're out of their minds.

I can see their attempt to combine past fonts into a new one but it doesn't work for me.

 

Hey they actually get a diamond to go on throwbacks again like in 1994. It’s like a throwback of a throwback that’s a fauxback! Aaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!!!!!!

San Francisco 49ers Unveil 75th Anniversary Logo

April 26, 2021 - 18:07 PM

The San Francisco 49ers will celebrate their 75th anniversary this season by wearing a diamond-shaped uniform patch that pulls inspiration from the franchise’s past. “The past seven and a half decades of 49ers football have provided generations of faithful (fans) with countless unforgettable plays, players and memories, and my family

Well, diamond is a pretty legitimate indicator  of a 75th.  Obviously not all teams use one, but plenty have.
