    Just cause the Horns might be gone as we know it, doesn't mean that they can't be smaller and part of the theme.

    These logos above changed.

    Bucs kept the sword
    Skins kept the feather
    Broncos just changed the horses appearance and lost the D.

    It won't be that bad!

    I really hope they keep them. I loved drawing that horned helmet when I was kid on my school folders.

    I thought that it was actually a myth that the Vikings wore horns. I can't remember where the horns came into play, but I do remember some historians saying that the Vikings did not have horns on their heads.

    Re: Petition to keep the horns

    I lived in Denver when they changed the Broncos helmet and uniform and for the most part, fans thought it was great, except for the demphasis on the orange (orange crush). They all recognized that the flying old Bronco D was a 60's relic and hideous.


    The horn is different.

    I think we're getting worked up over nothing.. The horns will still be there, it's the best helmet in football, hands down.
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    wow....what is happening? I don't want a new color to the uniforms or a new helmet. I love the color our uniforms are. I don't care what they do with the pants or if they jazz them up a little but dang! Tradition matters to me. :cry:
    True that! I don't think that there's anything wrong with our uniforms right now! Any changes would be unnecessary, and any change in the helmet would be idiotic and ill-advised (even a "modernizing" of the horns, which would end up making them look stupid).

    I don't buy the "smiley sperm" argument either. If anything, a helmet change would lead to LESS merchandising money due to a less appealing helmet.

    Unfortunately this is the business side of the NFL. if they change the uniforms we will all have to go out and purchase new jerseys, hats, etc.

    You are correct. I hope they don't get rid of the horns, but if they do there are things you can do. Don't buy the new stuff.

    Just remember some poeple thought they had a great idea by releasing new coke. Hardly anybody bought it and they realized they messed up and got rid of it and brought back the old coke.
