New Logo for NFL Europe?

Allegedly there was a new NFLE logo presented this weekend in Dusseldorf. Read that on the message board of the Amsterdam Admirals.

Well, here it is...

Also the name of the league will be modified, from Europe to Europa.

Dunno what to think about it. Anyone heard if that info is correct?

That can't be a new logo. How are they going to fit that at the bottom of the jersey collars? Also, I think the "Europa" thing may just be a language thing, seeing as the event was in Germany. Europa may be Europe in German. I'm not sure about that though. Anyone speak German here?

Back on topic, I seriously doubt this is a new NFLE logo.

I speak limited German, and I've always seen it as "Europe."

Still, I may be wrong

Europa is Latin for Europe.

Europe is not of Latin derivation. It is Greek. It is derived from the Greek words eurys ("broad") and ops ("face").

There is even one of Jupiter's moons named for it.

The Jovian satellite Europa is named after a figure in Greek mythology - specifically, a Phoenician princess abducted by Zeus and taken to Crete. Zeus transformed himself into a white bull in order to effect the abduction.

Subsequently, the continent of Europe was named after the mythological figure Europa.

In short, both the satellite Europa and the continent of Europe are named for the Phoenician princess. The Jovian moon is not named for the continent.

I hope they don't change the NFL Europe logo. I always thought it was a great logo for a European league, with it resembling the EU flag and a subtle football in the middle created with shadows. This one looks like a crappy wordmark more than anything. keep the shield damnit

They should just rename NFL Europe the Fourth Reich, since 5 of the 6 teams are in Sauerkraut Land.

...and the offices moving to Germany from London...

...and someone being hired SOLELY to inprove upon German-born talent playing in the league...

...and to get 2 more teams playing in 2007 and a third in 2008.

We're just a nickle defense away from the Rhein Fire invading Poland.

What a crap logo, and what a downgrade from the previous shield. I'm guessing that this functions as a placeholder logo for the eventual transition to "NFL Deutschland," once they strongarm the Admirals out of Amsterdam and transfer the franchise to (insert random German city here.)

Man, I miss the Dragons.

And I miss the Monarchs and Claymores! I always wanted to see a 'fantasy' game between the Patriots and the Monarchs on July 4th. :D
