    Well, the Patriots have decided to change their logo:

    Pretty Lame IMO.

    My wife is a season ticket holder, so she is pretending that it is OK.

    Ever since Myra died, things have been slowly but steadly going down hill.

    Anything but (stylized) pennant letters. Weak sauce.

    For a while I thought they were moving back from the current "Elvis" logo to the crouching militia linebacker one.

    I'm neither a big football or Patriots fan so from a reasonably objective view it doesn't seem lame. Same picture. They went from cursive to block. Not a bad move considering most schools don't teach cursive anymore.

    Ya, that is lame. I hope they didn't spend a million on some marketing agency to do that.

    Well you're in luck, because that probably cost them more like 3 mil, with more interesting revisions falling to the blade ending up on this.

    Meh.

    I really expected this to be an Aaron Hernandez joke, so I'm pleasantly surprised.

    I guess once the management gave fans the option of a free free trade in for your Aaron Hernandez jersey, they need to generate income with a new logo.
    The original "Pat Patriot" on red jersey didnt need no stinking letters to get the point across...

    interesting. my first thought was 'merchandising sales move' but perhaps there was legitimate concern their logo was unreadable to most.

    Do you think the IRS gives extra scrutiny to the players tax returns considering who they play for?

    I don't care what their logo looks like, I just hope they are terrible this year. I hate that team, their coach, and their quarter back.

    And as a lover of all things New England/Boston I am disappointed. First the Bruins lose the cup, and now this? Swell.
