    It's like... 33% of the Lombardi.


    And it looks very cheap and flimsy. I've seen MMA organizations with belts that are pure gold with gems on them.

    Why can't the freakin NFL get better hardware? Kinda sad.

    It looks like it was copied from an irrelevant trophy noted in Madden...

    Nope, it's not just you. They announced the change when nobody was paying any attention last year during superbowl week...

    I think the comparision of the new one to the silly peoples choice award isn't that far off...

    It's as if they are trying to make it the runners up trophy to the Lombardi rather than a championship in it's own right, which it is...

    It looks like something that turns out to have been the murder weapon on an old Law and Order.

    It does look like a Lombardi trophy that's missing pieces. Sucks for the team that loses. They will never remember their accomplishments but instead they'll see an empty trophy that they couldn't fill :D

    Well, thanks to a mod, I'm going to delete this thread. If I wanted the thread title to read this way, I would have given it the current title, not the one it has now. There was no reason to change the thread title.

    It's not just you... everyone watching the game with me last night was wondering what the heck that "partial Lombardi trophy" was. We were all caught off guard when we realized it was the Lamar Hunt Trophy. It's ugly.

    I still think there is a missing trophy that is not awarded. They say the playoffs are a second season, but the NFL does not recognize nor award the winning-est team of the regular 16 game season.

    Sure there are the Hunt and Halas trophies for the winner of the AFC and NFC playoffs; but I think there should be a trophy awarded to the regular season team with the best record.

    I think the NFL ought to award the Paul Brown [or Don Shula or Bill Belichick] trophy for the team which produces the best record in the league during the 16 game season. :eek::snob::snob:

    Congratulations Green Bay Packers for a great 15-1 season!

    I think it looks wonderful in the Patriots trophy case, but would look horible in any of the other 15 possible locations.

    Do people stay up at night thinking up things to complain about?

    It's really an optional attachment to the Ninja total kitchen system... It's so exclusive, you have to win a Conference championship to get one... but may can it make the best salsa in less than 4 seconds flat...

    I don't think this kept the OP up at night. He or she was just commenting on the ugliness of the trophy.
