...It's a B. What the hell? Who thought a 'B' would be a cool logo? There's also supposed to be a uniform change as well, but they say they're keeping the striped helmets.

One of my roommates is a Bengals fan. The second he saw they changed their old logo to this one he renounced all love for anything Bengals. I'd say thats a shame but who really cares about the Bengals? Although a "B" is just a terrible idea for a team logo, which pretty much goes for any letter.

Dude, you said "best football team," but it links to a New Jersey Giants hat. :-)

Although the principle is correct...just dig my sig.

There is a B on the Raven head...

Apparently, there are also new uniforms on the way too.

Letters = cool if it's tradition and you've had that logo forever.

Letters = lame when you change to that in 2004.

Isn't the whole purpose of changing logos to make your gear look good so you can sell a load of merchandise? Somehow I don't see the orange and black B catching on as the next big thing. It's too bad, too, because with the Bengals getting better they could have hit something with a fresh new look.

I look at the new logo like this:

Are you any less likely to buy Bengals merchandise with the logo change?

Maybe it's just me, but that blocky B looks like
a college football logo. Also it gives the
impression of being a B-team.

I guess with this you can sell alot of letter jacket to those people who never got on in High School.

And speaking of Logos I wish some throwback day the Pats will wear this one.

I dunno. It looks like Generic Team Logo #4 that you'd find when you create a team in Madden or something.

Didn't they JUST change their logo not that long ago?

Is it just the helmet logo? And are they keeping the leaping bengal as their other logo for merch reasons?

And yeah, God bless the old "Bengals" logo from back in the day...

Incidentally, I found this:

This reversed image helmet, with orange stripes on a black background instead of black on orange, was first seen during an interview with head coach Marvin Lewis on the NFL Network this season. There has been speculation that the Bengals are headed for a change, but the team claims that this helmet is a unique creation made especially for Lewis and given to him by a personal friend.

Of course, it's better than this old proposed Dolphins helmet:

It was bad enough when Flipper started showing HGH Rage.

Although really, when you talk about merchandising and helmets, they're not exactly baseball caps. You can put a picture/drawing of it on a t-shirt, but otherwise I don't even think parents of hyperactive children buy football helmets.
