Get rid of the decals. The helmets always look better clean and smooth.

Oops, I voted before reading the post and thought we were talking about totally plane helmets like PSU and ND vs. helmets with a logo like UF, Mich, etc.

As such I voted for decals, knowing now that I should've read the post first I would've voted for no decals so take one of those decal votes away and switch it over...

You shouldn't need a decal. The logo on the helmet should say it all.

I think this poll is kind of silly. Essentially, it is: Does the team you root for have decals or not?


Personally, I could care about whether a helmet has decals (I believe the proper term is "pride stickers") or not.

I care about wins, conference titles, bowl game titles, and national championships. And the occasional individual award.

Yeah? Well, I just talked to the poll on break and the poll told me he thinks you're kind of silly.

So how do you like them apples? }:-)

I fart in the poll's general direction.


Now I'm silly AND mature.

I hate the decals, maybe because I vote for the traditional-uniform team, but I just think it looks stupid ..

Come on man, you know how slow it gets in this forum over the spring/summer time. We need something to talk about in the offseason, or at least until March Madness/NFL Draft time gets here.

So far, that's the burn of the year. I love that line.

And I like the idea of the helmet stickers if they look classy. I think it does reward the players and there's not enough positive reinforcement in sports today, this type of thing is something that needs to be done more. But if you get crazy with it (I could only imagine Oregon doing helmet stickers) it does tend to look a bit out place.
