    Not saying Tampa is going to ramp off that now, though, at least. Rant over. Whew.
    Eh, every sport has it's eyesore logos/uniforms.

    Some people think its going to be a pretty minor tweak with the main changes being to a white helmet so that they can wear their throwbacks again. The NFL added a rule last year that you can only wear the same helmet all year and couldn't wear a different one for the throwback game. The pewter obviously wouldn't have worked at all with the old unis.

    Re: Tampa Bay to introduce new logo

    A lot of hype for a lot of insignificant change, but then again I liked the existing Buccaneers identity anyway.
