    The trouble with the colors was probably that you never knew what team was going to be playing in the Super Bowl, and sometimes the colors of the logo would have been the colors of one or other of the teams. Or their rivals. If the Chiefs had ever gone to a Super Bowl with an orange and blue logo, I'd have puked at the merchandise :p

    I meant I don't understand Roman numerals, Tunick. You're somehow making this more painful.

    I'm siding with Tunick for the second time today. The standardized logo is awful. I miss the host city themed logo.

    I agree that the standardized Super Bowl logos are a travesty. They have no character whatsoever. Laugh all you want, but I used to greatly anticipate the unveiling of the following year's Super Bowl logo--and I wasn't the only one; it was always in the Top 10 on Google Trends the day it was revealed. The change was made three years ago to improve the "branding" of the Super Bowl. Because, you know, the Super Bowl event is in a fluid and volatile state and the branding needs to be secured in order to insure that there will be annual interest.

    I wouldn't mind new logos each year if they didn't suck so much.

    Any of the old logo's that you do like? :p And while were on this topic, my favorite Super Bowl logo's of yesteryear:

    Love the colors there.

    Excellent use of incorporating the roses (and this would be the last Super Bowl to date played here in the L.A. area), since the game was at the Rose Bowl. My favorite Super Bowl logo of all time.



    [IMG]


    Another great example of fine incorporation of the host city/state... also a fan of the light blue color on the ribbon, and the font used on the Roman numerals.

    Big points for a good New Orleans theme/good use of colors.




    [IMG]


    My 2nd favorite logo of all time... a big fan of all the different colors used in the Roman numerals.



    [IMG]


    I like the font used in the 'Super Bowl' tag, and the contrast of blue & the creamsicle orange.



    [IMG]



    Use of a pylon for the 'I' numeral? Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

    Another great thing about these logos is that they become part of a team's identity; that unique logo belongs to the team who won that game. If I look at any one of those logos, I can tell you instantly--literally, instantly--who won that Super Bowl. Hell, I can tell you who lost that Super Bowl. Twenty years from now, nobody will be able to say that. You'll have to do the calculus in your head--Super Bowl XLVII...that's Super Bowl 46...we're on Super Bowl 66...the year is 2033, so that Super Bowl was in 2013...ah, I know who won it that year, it was the...."

    The XXXII one is okay. I don't like any of the others.

    According to Sportscenter, the League will apparently look into Brady's kick. Hopefully he'll get fined for that. He could have really done damage to Ed Reed's knee on that ***** play.

    Sorry Goodell, you are still going to get ripped in NOLA next week, but nice try.

    and put me in the traditional Super Bowl logos camp. I like how each Super Bowl had a unique look and feel. Not the standardized look the NFL has now. They changed the conference champs trophies too and the new ones suck. Give us the block of wood trophies Goodell.

    Here's my personal favorite Super Bowl logo (I'm biased of course):

    Uuuugh the orange. The design of that logo is cool but the color is horrendous.

    Good, I was wondering if Golden Boy was going to get looked at for that kick. I was like "If they don't at least look at fining Brady for that after fining Suh, then there's definitely an problem with the disipline system."

    I'm in the custom logo camp too. The generic logo now is just so bland. My favorite is the Roses logo.

    NFL needs a damn team in LA again so the Super Bowl can be played at the Rose Bowl!

    Nah screw that. I just want a Super Bowl there :)
    But watching another team fail Tunick might be fun.

    The Callahan story is pretty weird, but I go by Hanlon's razor which states "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." I think he was just incompetent, not throwing the Super Bowl.

    And, because I'm not done reveling in the Patriots' misery:
