This new logo is sure to make everyone forget the whole Hernandez thing... right?

Pretty bland, why change it. No, not because of Hernandez.

There is no real reason to change it, as all the "new logo" merchandising is shared revenue. Either they legitimately felt the logo needed an update or they're trying to get in the news for something other than Hernandez.

In my opinion I don't think they re-branded because of Hernandez. It's probably just another way for them to get a new product out on the shelves. Because the Patriots have had a less consistent uniform than someone like the Steelers they have the ability to change it around somewhat frequently.

Neither of the Pats fonts (old or new) look like the new Dolphins font?

The Dolphins "old one" and Patriots "old one" both had the cursive font

Right, but the Pats adopted their cursive after the Dolphins, and ditched their cursive after the Dolphins did.

If anything, the Pats are mirroring the Dolphins (as opposed to your theory that they changed to be opposite of Miami).

Maybe they just decided the cursive looked dated and wanted something which looks more 3-dimensional (which is the only reason for the silly asymmetrical "A" and 2nd "T"

The fact that the T's aren't consistent is pretty lame though. The A should also have points on the horizontal part....I'm not in graphic design by any means but the new font seems amateurish or a poor (or rushed) attempt to be modern.

The Patriots will have a new logo in the end zones at Gillette Stadium next season, switching from a cursive look (above, on left) to a bolder block-letter style (above, on right).

The Flying Elvis will carry over as well, only it will be centered instead of merging with the “P”.

The change will not impact the team’s helmets, jerseys or anything else on the uniform.

Only for the end zone? Why bother?

Have you seen the very, very first one, where Pat Patriot looks like he's on meth?


I miss that one.
