Santa Clara 49ers already whining about Superbowl L

    I actually agree with the change, as well. Not necessarily for any lack of American understanding of the Roman numeral system, but just for design purposes. Having a big "L" as the central part of the logo just wouldn't look all that great, imo.

    In addition, it's forward-thinking. The NFL is not likely to die out in the next, say, 40 years. Do we really want to see a Roman numeral logo for Super Bowl LXXXVIII? Sure, there's some fun to be had in the lead up to Super Bowl LIX, but I don't think humor is high on the NFL's list for their premier game.

    And yeah, I sincerely hope they alter the logo between now and when the game is played. That effort is weak. I certainly don't have any interest in grabbing the Seahawks' threepeat merch with that ugly thing on it.

    EDIT: Well, apparently according to this link, this is a one-year deal. Although, given their rationale, I wouldn't be surprised to see them repeat it 50 more years down the line so they can avoid Super Bowl C.

  • Weston said her team has been working on the Super Bowl 50 logo since April 2013, having gone through 73 versions. At some point along the way, it was concluded that having the "L" stand alone didn't work.

    The league has made two logos for the game, which will take place Feb. 7, 2016, at Levi's Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers. Both the national and regional logo feature the "50" in gold, serving to call attention to the game's golden anniversary as well as the game's location in the "Golden State."


    And this is the best they could do? That's just sad.

    It will only be a handful of digits for several years and won't get to 8 digits until Super Bowl LXXXVIII, which is 40 years from now. The zombies will have overrun us by then anyway.

    XLVIII looked great in the logo, but that's just my opinion. :)


    Yeah...I just wish they'd stop using the same logo. I hate that they standardized the SB logo.


    Completely agree. The standardized Super Bowl logo sucks balls.

    Both the generic version and the regional version are incredibly weak and outdated.

  • I think I just heard I said on NFLN, that for SB 51 they are going back to Roman numerals.
    Guess it's only to avoid the "L"

  • Tradition matters. Screw the change. I don't like it. Especially with that garish yellow "50" logo.

    If it's OUR 2nd or 3rd. I doubt anybody here will really care if it's "50" or "L"
    :{)

    Actually it would be kind of cool to be the only team to win one with regular numbers.
    Be a great trivia question 30 years from now.

  • ^^^ In my experience, upon most changes tradition matters very briefly, and people quickly get over it and move on to things that matter. :)

    Edit: More accurate would be to say tradition for the sake of tradition. There are tons of traditions that serve purpose beyond simply being traditions (e.g. when conservative Christians talk about "traditional" marriage their claims are about MUCH MORE than simply tradition).

    Well, we're still waiting for 49ers fans to get over the tradition of their glory years from decades ago.
