it looked like in the preseason they had airbrushed some black stripes (I don’t even think it is fair to call them stripes), which I think were really there as shading to give the illusion that the front center of the helmet was raised.  New helmets have that raised design, where old ones were completely round.  If I had to guess, the intended effect was to make all the helmets look similar with the same shading design, but in reality, it looked stupid, so they scratched it.

Please wait…
