New AFC and NFC Championship trophies

Last year during the Super Bowl weekend celebrations the NFL announced that they would be redesigning the AFC and NFC Championship trophies.

The AFC wins the Lamar Hunt Trophy and the NFC wins the George Salas Trophy.

For all the previous years the trophies used to look like this:

Old Lamar Hunt trophyOak with a tough forged metal look. Pretty dominate and recognizable.

Now the redesign of the Lamar Hunt Trophy and the George Halas Trophy will look like this:

new NFC Championship trophy
The NFL says it wanted to change the look of the AFC and NFC Championship game trophies to coincide with the look of the Lombardi Trophy.

The new championship game trophy took nine months to design. Tiffany and Company makes it, which is the same company that makes the Lombardi Trophy.

I think the new trophies are very futuristic looking and they do resemble the Lombardi Trophy.

What are you're thoughts on the AFC and NFC Championship trophy redesigns?

  2. Why mess with tradition? Although it will make it easier for hardcore fans to craft a replica of one from tinfoil to carry into the stadium during future championship games.

  9. I agree with the above comment; under the new commissioner is being run more and more like a business and less like a prideful family tradition. I can understand wanting to change the old trophies; they look like a block of wood and are hard to capture well in photos for newspapers. However, they look solid and will last ages. The new ones are so SMALL and WEAK. They should have gone with a 10% small Super Bowl trophy in bronze. Frankly, it looks like something a knock-out league would come up with to feed off the NFL's success.

  10. looks good to me and the new one is about as big as a nfl players helmet bigger then the old one people are dumb and just want to bitch about anything and everything

  11. the design is ok, but they're way too small. They look like toys instead of something denoting a conference champion and a Super Bowl team. The old trophies made you feel like you won something significant.

  12. After seeing the new trophies presented today to the Giants and Pats, I have to see the new trophies look small and weak compared to the old trophies. The old trophies had more heft and significance to their design. The new one is stylish but kind of puny looking. They should have stuck with the old trophies.

  13. Bottom line is: Do you want a Championship Title Belt or a People's Choice Award?

  14. the new trophy is a sleek and nice design. but I'm a fan of tradition. hockey have lord stanley's cup. the masters have the green jacket. yachting has the americas cup. the nfc and afc need the george stanley halas trophy and the lamar hunt trophy.

    please do not mess with tradition also keep the lombardi trophy.

  17. Tried to give it a bit to sink in, but the new one looks super cheap and suck. I understand the need to make it the same scale as the super bowl trophy, but the cut out makes it look dinky. And what the F'n hell is a foo foo jewelry company designing a football trophy?. And why the need to make it look similar to the super bowl trophy? Different is good and the old one gives the winner their own identity.

  18. The old one looks tough and the new one looks like a sissy bitch ass toy.

  19. Thank you all for the consensus. I made the trophies for thirty years and was dissapointed when they
    decided to make a change and have the trophies made in China.
    Its sad that even the warrior culture of professional football has to be sissified with a "foo foo" award.

  21. I think back when you where a kid making toys models cars and you got that plastic chrome that's what it's looks like.

  22. the new trophys look awful , the old ones have traditions that go way back

  23. I think the NFL got it right as the new trophies are designed as hollow and as empty as the victory they represent. No team wants just that trophy. The only one that matters is the Lombardi Trophy. So who cares what it really looks like.

  24. It all depends on the type of game or activity you are purchasing the trophies for. Trophies should represent the look and feel of the event they excelled in.

NINE MONTHS????,if I came up with something that common and lame after nine months I would fire myself.they are at least better than those F1 indy car trophies,now those are are really bad.but yeah I like the old one better,this looks like someone spray painted a football silver and put it on a chunck of wood.exaggeration I know but you get my drift.no pun intended.
