I have a lookalike called Casil, but it has another, more famous name, and it’s slipping my mind.I like it, certainly more than the Browns’ Optima, which never fit right to me. 231 Posted January 17, 2013 Favourite Logos:Hartford Whalers, Colorado Rockies (NHL), Vancouver Millionaires dfwabel Location:Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania USA 0 omnivore Share on other sites Share this post Share this post 5,026 60 illwauk Grand Pooba of Walksylvania Sports Logo News Link to post I forgot all about this too!

I remember the AFC playoffs between Kansas City and Miami had both teams helmets at midfield. I think this was the only time Cleveland did it but it has a precedent.

So no idea where the big “T”‘s came from (dig up, stupid (Simpson’s reference) or the lonely “s” at the end.The Orange Bowl game did not have team names in the endzones until later in the 1989 game. Since the endzones just said, “Orange Bowl”, they were most likely using part of the “B” for a “P”, flipping the letter “E” for one and using the “I” twice. 89 Share on other sites the admiral Sports Logo News the admiral Link to post Location:New Jersey Has this happened for a non-Super Bowl since the Saints home game in Giants Stadium?Do the London games count? The Giants-Dolphins game had “Dolphins” in both end zones, but they now put both teams in an end zone. Here’s the field for Broncos-49ers; each team had an endzone but only 49ers logos were painted at the 25s. 11 0 26,194 Share this post Members Link to post Favourite Logos:70s/80s Phillies, Swingin’ Friar, Tulane angry wave, 76ers Ben Franklin dribbling, 80s Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Tigers D, UNC Tarred Heel, Gritty the admiral Has this happened for a non-Super Bowl since the Saints home game in Giants Stadium?

Maybe the rationale was that the match was a championship game of some sort in the NFL, hence the need to have both participants’ names on the end zones. But the location of the title game gave the home team the option of stylizing the names.Consider though that the NFL made logos for everything starting in the second half of the 1990s — divisional playoffs, Wild Card, kickoff weekend, probably the draft… Plus NBC, CBS and Fox all used them in the opens for their respective games.

Not only that, but they made a makeshift Broncos helmet (with the D logo minus the horse). I’d love to see this kind of stuff nowadays, though I’m sure it’ll never happen outside of a Super Bowl.Anyway, here’s a blog post someone did with pictures. http://theaxisofego.com/2012/02/02/you-wont-see-this-again-anytime-soon/And here’s some visual evidence: I apologize for any decorum Share on other sites 5,026 mjmatias Sign in to follow this   Followers 0 omnivore Share this post mjrbaseball Location:San Antonio, Texas 57,915 posts Favourite Logos:North Stars Link to post Share on other sites 1 Posted January 14, 2013 Raymie 5,026 MJWalker45 Raymie Just found this… skip to 1:30 to see a set of solid red helmets for the Cardinals. I’m guessing the white outlines had something to do with why they didn’t make the helmets white instead. The Kansas City Chiefs used to place their helmet and the opposing teams helmet in midfield during the early ’70’s, before they moved to Arrowhead stadium.

Back in 1983, the Packers had a pair of green and gold helmets in each endzone, but for the famous Monday Night game against Washington, the helmets in one endzone were re-painted burgundy and gold.I also remember seeing a Monday Night game between the Packers and Jets from County Stadium where each team had a SMALL (presumably because the Brewers didn’t want any more paint than necessary on their field) wordmark in one of the endzones.
