My bad. I had thought that the darkness in that area was just lack of lighting.
That's pretty much a fugly design. I'm in the wrong business...I should be re-designing football helmet paint/design schemes. I don't know how this stuff gets past all levels of decision making in an NFL organization. At some point, shouldn't someone, somewhere, stand up and say "We can't fade a gold color to a black on the helmet. One or the other, but not both."???
Hey, I was the same way at first. I saw that picture and thought the helmet was completely gold. But someone told me to take a closer look and... yeah. That's fail.
