The NFL supposedly has a problem on their hands. In four years, they will have Super Bowl L. Because of the current system in which the game is named after roman numerals, the 50th edition could cause some issues.
The culture in America is that the “L” is associated with the word “LOSER” and that’s not something that would fit well. No team wants to wear a big “L” on their shirt after winning the Super Bowl — let alone play a game that is associated with being a loser.
But what is the solution? How often do we actually associate the letter “L” with losing? In the world of sports, it’s more apparent. But what about outside of sports? Does it hold the same meaning?
There have been suggestions on what the NFL could do to remedy this potential disaster. Here are some that have been suggested and my idea.
