  • WHAO, look at this!

    Here are the current (2002- 2011) helmets:

    Now, look at the current logo:

    The blue on the bottom stripe is totally different, yo.

    Nike totally leaked the new logo colors -- right on the helmet we've been wearing for years! Sneaky, Nike!

    If our logo was staying the same there would be no reason not to release the new cap.

  • It is possible that Nike can't show any official Nike products until the Reebok contract ends. But as several others have said above, Nike and Reebok do not own or control the rights to our colors or logo. So the Seahawks are the ones slowing down any releases of new logo or colors.

    If Nike is showing Nike-made hats for other teams, they obviously have the right to do that. If they are showing other teams but holding ours back, then that's obviously the team insisting that they do that.

    Isn't this going to lead to more head injuries?

    When it is flat its called a brim. Just sayin.

    To make it a bill simply place index finger and thumb firmly on each outside edge of bill and pull towards one another in a downward motion until the curve of your liking is formed.

  • If that is in fact our new word mark, I really like it. Brings a totem-pole sort of theme to the font itself.

    Def better than our generic Copperplate Gothic Bold font.

    A few hundred pages back I guessed the 12th Man integration would be in the inside collar itself. Now the only thing I really hope for is for a full wrap-around sleevehawk. It makes our uniforms unique and keeps some tradition from the past.

    I'm trusting that you have seen more than these six hats, right? I just notice that each of those six teams has blue in their colors.

    Except that many of the new hats do not allow you to properly form the bill anymore. Really annoying.

    I only grouped those six together to show that the Seahawks Draft Cap wasn't displaying a "new" blue color on the Seahawk logo outline. It's a generic light blue for all the teams using a navy colored cap. Gotta love that dark navy and bright green though.

    You say proper, I say old fashioned. Plus I have a chubby face so the flatter brim helps. Without it I look like Rapistburger in that ridiculously too small fedora he wears.

  • Based on everything I've read and seen, this is what I've come up with as the most likely change to our helmet this year. Dark navy blue replaces the gun metal metallic, the neon green becomes a softer green, and the lighter blue becomes a silver, grey or metallic grey.

    I don't how sure anyone is about the grey face mask. I did one in a mock up, to which JohnnySeoul replied with an ominous answer that a "grey facemask looked nice on a blue helmet, should such a thing exist", or something along those lines, and it all went from there. I think it'd look nice.

    Seahawks fan base? :?: I suppose some prefer one versus the other. I don't have a freakin' clue what Seattle's management went with. My gut tells me they are going with the dark navy, but who knows. I never saw a single pic and can only go off the original PDF for the helmet. But like I said above, I think either choice is going to look nice.

    Fingers crossed for the grey grill. Way more classic of a look to me. There was a time when teams only had grey facemasks. I cringed when SF switched to red. It was nice to see Indy switch back to grey sometime around '02.

    Fingers crossed for the grey grill. Way more classic of a look to me. There was a time when teams only had grey facemasks. I cringed when SF switched to red. It was nice to see Indy switch back to grey sometime around '02.


    Sometimes older, or "classic," is not better. But we all like what we like. Personally, I'm somewhere in between. Keep it modern, but a BIT of classic feel to it as well I suppose. "Live for the future, not the past!"

  • I like it. My only concern is that it MUST NOT look too similar to Chicago's helmet color. Not that I think it looks bad but because of my hated for them. I think their colors are pretty cool actually. But I hate the Bears. I hate, you, Robbie Gould.
