The Ref's New Lids

So, while watching the game, did anyone notice the NFL shield front and center on the officials' caps? Comment, for right now, I'm not in a mood 'cause my Iggles lost.

I don't really like the logo on the front of the hats. The logo is already small and on the back, where it should be. It makes them look like baseball hats. We saw enough of them, as there were plenty of penalties called on the 3-time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots!

It's not like referee caps are worn as fashion statements. Those who wear referee caps are most likely referees. And one would be reprimanded for wearing the NFL referee cap in a non-NFL game.

The AL and NL caps are different. Most little league games in my area are divided in their respective towns between American and National Leagues, so it's not that much of a big deal.

Check www.honigs.com or www.pluspos.com to see if the referee caps are available. I doubt it, but you never know. You can get the black MLB umpire caps there.

I didn't mind them myself. It's not like they put an advertisers logo like the English Premier League ref's jerseys (Emirates)

Too bad MLB decided to go with the standardised MLB caps insted of the AL and NL caps. I enjoyed them.

Not to take this OT, but did anyone notice that the NFL logo is on the field goal net? How long has that been there, or was it also "making its debut" last night?

I think they have done that in previous Super Bowls. Nice to see someone noticed.

I surely don't remember that in any previous game. I can check my tapes to verify as I have taped every one since 1991. :D
