The end zones are ready for the Super Bowl. Both teams’ end zones are navy blue as it matches their team color scheme. I wish they would have gone with gray for Seattle and red for New England, but this was expected.
For Seattle, they have the team logo on one side and the conference logo on the other. For the Patriots, that is not the case. They don’t have their team logo because the team wordmark already features the logo. So in the area where the logo is supposed to be, it is left blank.
It feels odd. It feels off-balanced. I don’t know what the solution would be. Could the Patriots have gone with the wordmark without the logo? They could have. But even if they couldn’t, what other option would there be? Doubling up the Flying Elvis logo would be too much. Maybe an alternate logo? The only other alternate logo the Patriots have is this, and that logo is rarely used.
So we have an all navy Super Bowl with an end zone that is off-balanced. What are you going to do?
