    I don't like this, I don't like this at all.

    My first reaction was I thought it was a mistake, but after reading on it seems they might actually make it better without destroying the general look.

    As long as the change isn't too radical.

    Yeah, I just went and looked, you wouldn't know the difference until somebody pointed it out.

    What's wrong with changing the logo? There isn't much of a difference.

    I never did realize that the stars on the NFL logo on caps and shirts and stuff has only 19 stars. At least on mine it does.

    I honestly would not have noticed. They probably could have said nothing about it and just did it. I'm sure the media would have caught it after a while, and Madden would do a chalk comparison on them.

    I like it. Looks cleaner and the 8 stars make sense.

    I can live with this. I long ago gave up the hope that some things in this world simply wouldn't change. Now I'm just relieved when they don't screw something I love up.

    It is not a travesty and so I'm content.

    No worries, I came across the article while on another board and was a little surprised that nobodyhad mentioned it here.

    I agree. The new logo looks better to me, too.

    I'm with you there. When I saw "logo change" I had fears of those stupid robo-football players like the ones on CBS on the logo.

    I like it. A bit more sleek and as the article says, the stars mean something as does the positioning of the football.
