ESPN trashes Baltimore Ravens helmet, new design coming?



On the heels of this NFL helmet "power ranking" completed by the “worldwide leader” and given the Ravens poor showing in said ranking (they finished with the 3rd worst helmet…the Steelers’ was voted the league’s best helmet), we have decided to organize a contest to design a new Ravens' helmet. We'll take the entries and then bracket them, modeled after the NCAA basketball tournament.

To give the tournament a buzz and encourage contestants, we have reached out to potential sponsors to underwrite the contest in an effort to assemble a cash prize worth at least $1,000.00.

Winners will be determined by popular vote here on Ravens24x7 in a picture poll on our home page designed specifically for the contest. Our plan is to kick off this contest next week....target date is Wednesday May 25. Entries should be submitted by June 30, 2011.

So for all of you creative types or those who know creative types, get busy! Entries should be submitted to Ravens24x7@aol.com.

Thanks and best of luck to all.

It should be noted that this contest is not endorsed by the Ravens nor is there an effort to replace the current helmet. This is simply a fan driven effort to be rewarded by Ravens24x7.com and its sponsors.

well im a huge ravens fan so i will def get in the contest but if the nfl thinks the steelers helmet is #1 , i think it one of the most boring helmets in the league..But if the nfl thinks our helmet sucks it will be a little hard to create a better helmet then what we got..but im up for the challenge...thanks daniel lundsford..

Daniel,

I agree with you regarding the Steelers' helmet. Even the Browns candy corn looking dome is ranked by ESPN well ahead of the Ravens. Are we blinded by purple?

I think it will be fun to see what Ravens fans come up with.

Good luck!

This is just ESPN vamping because there is no football news to report. Ignore and go on. And the Ravens helmet is great as is.

Just heard about the contest on 105.7 and can't wait to give it a shot. Are there any guidelines or restrictions we should adhere to? In particular what color scheme is allowed and must we use to current logo as is? Thanks
