Who knows about the mysterious 1982 LOGO



Why did we use this logo for only one year?

Why did we change this logo after winning the SUPER BOWL?

Whats your favorite logo and uniform combo?

I was just reading up on some history of the Redskins and I came across this pic and now Im really intrested in the story behind it. I looked a few places for an answer but I found nothing. Maybe someone here can help me out.

Thanks

Re: Who knows about the mysterious 1982 LOGO

Found at
Letters

at the end of the answer to the first question.

"In 1982 there was a one season change that had the Indian feathers curve around the ring of the Indian head rather than hang vertically. This change was made to make the decal easier to apply to the helmet without creasing. When a more flexible vinyl was introduced the next season the team returned to the vertically positioned feather design."

Re: Who knows about the mysterious 1982 LOGO

Correct, not all players wore the helmet logo with tucked feather in '82. I had heard that it was not the team, but the manufacturer of the decals that made the decision to tuck the feathers. I'm not sure it could be a mistake since it obviously required some editing of the logo, but it was not the team's decision from what I know.

I honestly don't remember the curled feather logo, but you are correct about Little Joe's straight feathers (he is #25), as seen in the end zone celebration after Riggo's historic run to clinch Super Bowl XVII.

Re: Who knows about the mysterious 1982 LOGO

Thanks for the answers. I like the 59 helmet never really seen that one. I have an 70's Indian head helmet that was given to my mom in the late 80's buy a former player but I dont know who it was, and she doesnt remember. He wasn't a starter but who cares.

I was thinking there was going to be some type story behind the logo but the manufactor did to make easier to apply, ok. I wonder why they decided to do that after a decade of straight feathers?

I really like that. It's more like a good luck feeling on the feather. I don't know why it shows respect. We gotta give that a try on our helmets again later.
