    Re: New Uniform/Helmet could've been worse...

    Yeah, I'm glad that we didn't tweak the helmets too much!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    That looks waaaaaaaaaaay to ugly to have ever been considered bye the Vikings. Where did you get that pic? The new Helmets look great, or I should say the new "Horn" looks great.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Anybody else find it odd that the REAL Vikings did not have horns on their helmets?

    Not odd, just uncommon knowledge! I actually like this "subtle change" the best of all!

    I like the new helmets. This feels like an entirely new team! New coaches, players, Uni's, helmets....now we just need that stadium!

    Actually, there have been a few horned helmets from 850 - 1000 C.E. that have been discovered very recently in Denmark, the Daneland, and parts of Scandinavia. A little something I uncovered while writing a thesis on causes of the decline of the Viking Age. A Danish museum has one on display, can't remember the name though; apparently the thing is displayed behind glass without too much fanfare. However, it should be noted that these horned helmets appear to have been ceremonial in nature, and were probably never used in any battle. The horned helmet was most likely worn by a priest in some sort of pagan rite, possibly a pre-journey blessing or something along those lines.

    And probably worn by somebody named Svornthornkellerinin Blargeltharkellhadradilagarssen.

    Still a little bitter about the sourcing for that damned thesis.

    ^^^there is proof that they really did wear the horns on their helmets
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    I'll take your word for it, but as they say, the proof is in the pudding and to date I haven't seen an authentic Viking head piece with horns on them. Please feel free to post your pics from reliable sources!
