The National Football League is launching a makeover of its red, white and blue "NFL Shield" logo that adorns everything from player jerseys to fan T-shirts and hats.

The league is creating a leaner, meaner version of the iconic logo that will debut at the NFL draft in April, 2008. The revamped shield will be slightly taller and thinner, with a new football, fewer stars and darker colors, says Lisa Baird, the NFL's senior vice president of marketing. The redesign marks the first changes to the shield since 1980.

Personally, I think it looks pretty good.

Part of me says don't mess with a classic. But a normal casual fan would never notice the difference.

I don't like that they messed with the stars but the letters, football, and colors all look much better.

Yuk. I don't like it at all. It looks like a graffiti experiment gone wrong. I think I just had a flashback to 1987, but I'm not sure. Anxious

Not that much different. I like the old one better actually, I like it lighter and it has more stars.

The new one is definately better. The football looks better and the stars make sense. I wonder how much they paid someone to re-do it Wink

The new version is really nice, and it's close enough to the old logo where most people won't even notice the difference.

Eh, whatever. I guess i like the new one a bit better, but really it's hardly any different and few people will ever notice.
