NFL Changing Playoff Logos, Trophies, and Conference Symbols

The new conference logos of the National Football League have been updated to reflect the four divisions in each conference. Before, the AFC was denoted with six red stars along the outside of the letter A, while the NFC had three blue stars down the middle of the letter N. Now both conferences feature the stars down the middle representing four divisions each. Personally, I think it looks a little baseball-ish.


The new updated playoff logos were designed to give the NFL an identity. These logos work with the newly designed trophies for the championship games to create a cohesiveness in the set to represent the gradual journey to the top. The NFL’s universal identity is the shape of the Vince Lombardi trophy.


Staying with the cohesive theme, you can see that the conference championship trophies are now nothing more than “junior grade Lombardi clones”. I don’t know. The designs are sleek and nice, but they get a little tiring as they completely overdo the Lombardi trophy. Looks a little tacky. I think I like the old designs better, and the old school trophies and I usually am not one for liking the old things.


The new national Super Bowl logo will be a simple one with a permanent fixture of the Vince Lombardi trophy and the words “Super Bowl” below it with the appropriate roman numerals. There will be a second regional Super Bowl logo for every Super Bowl using the host stadium as a backdrop.

PS: Full NFL Schedule will be announced next Tuesday.

    I think the new conference trophies look weak, cheaply built and small. The heft of the old trophies had an old-school, traditional look that reminded me of the HOF. Just one of many regrettable decision by Roger Goodell.
