just not sure how you get from gehrke's beautifully original helmet design, and the rams head logo through the years (past and not so past), all with full, bold rams horns, to this meek logo?

i just hope it doesn't reflect what the rams plan to do with their helmets, i.e. abbreviate the horn curve at the bottom of the helmet, around the ear hole, which has always been a pain in the ass for (first) riddell and then subsequent rams equipment managers.

back in the early 50s, when riddell was responsible for painting the horns, they had to produce a special helmet add-on only for the rams so that the full horn would be visible - when decals came into vogue, rams equipment managers had to cut portions of out of each horn decal in order to mount facemasks and chinstrap snaps, which they still do today.

but by abbreviating the horn, by not having it wrap around the helmet earhole and form the the classic rams horn we all know, by making it look like the new head logo, it would make life much, much easier for those involved in preparing rams helmets... in fact the image of of the concept helmet that's been posted with the new logo shows this, an abbreviated horn.

It'd be a lot easier if Notre Dame quit painting their helmets gold too but hopefully it doesn't happen.

You know...I was worried that I might overreact to the logo release...

Turns out I’m a moderate. 8-)
