Yeah, you also could have "discovered" that by watching any NFL telecast over the past four years. Good work, Sherlock.

One of my favorite NFL logos. I've always loved the stripes in the shield.

A bit less rudely than Sodboy, IIRC, it's that little network ID piece that says something like "Fox welcomes you to the following presentation of the National Football League" and there's a procession of historical NFL logos, including that one.

Not a big fan - the halftone red stripes obscure the letters.

I do wonder when it was actually used.

Really? I always saw that ID but I never saw that logo in it...

I'm trying to find video now. I know I've seen it but maybe it's not the copyright ID or maybe it's on NFL Network. If I find it I'll link it. It's a short thing, 10-15 seconds, with an announcement of some kind and the logos kind of fly through.

I've always thought the stripes on that logo look like prison bars.

For a long time, I've been trying to figure out the beginning and ending dates for all of the various shields...these three are labeled (by the NFL) as "'40s through '60s":

NationalFootballLeague_PMK01a_1940-1959_SCC_SRGB.png

NationalFootballLeague_PMK02a_1940-1959_SCC_SRGB.png

NationalFootballLeague_PMK03a_1940-1959_SCC_SRGB.png

...the last one being an alternate version (I believe).

Here's the two most recent versions - for comparison's sake:

NationalFootballLeague_PMK01a_1970-2007_SCC_SRGB.png

NationalFootballLeague_PMK01a_2008-9999_SCC_SRGB.png

Anyone know when these were used?

Well, it's also legally inaccurate. Feel free to continue to describing games you see on TV.

All I know is that the when the League recently changed its logo, it listed this one as having been introduced in 1980:

NationalFootballLeague_PMK01a_1970-2007_SCC_SRGB.png

I believe that 1980 date refers primarily to the thickness of the exterior line and vertical points on the top, because a similar version has been in use since at least the late 1960s.

Here's another look, from 1975:

This version doesn't seem to have survived into the NFL's logo file history.

Is that why they arent on the website yet? Cause we dont have a 100% accurate year? And what about this logo:

That's the same one on the lunch box that Goth posted.

Not sure how anyone thought that stripes behind the letters was a good idea.

Yep, and I'm trying to narrow down the dates while we're at it. But that should definitely be on the site, since its use spanned at least a decade.
