Why do the Raiders have a facemask clip on the front that says their name, "Raiders," but the Chiefs have a clip that says the brand of the helmet, "Riddell"? Are the Hunts just too ****ing cheap to get those customized or what?

Also, that white thing on the back of our helmets on the bottom. It's just a white piece of plastic. Why not put "Chiefs" on that like other teams put their names on it?

IMO, just as with the jersey itself, simple is better.

Because GATORADE and SPRINT/NEXTEL was too long of words to fit in those spaces...

All Davis is the cheap one, he is having his players wear "knock off" Chinese built crap. :D

Riddel has exclusive advertising with the NFL in relation to the helmets.

If its a brand other than Riddel, the front tab above the facemask will have the team name on it.

think what you may about riddell, the chiefs, and cheapness. but nothing could compare to the pitsburg steelers. just how much money do they save by only putting the team logo only on one side of their helmets. cheapness champions of all time they are.

"The new Steelmark logo was originally only applied to one side of the helmet (the right side) by equipment manager Jack Hart because the Steelers were uncertain how it would look on their solid gold helmets. Even when they later switched their helmet color to solid black, they decided to permanently retain the logo on just the one side due to the team's new success and the interest generated by the logo's uniqueness. The Steelers are now the only team in the NFL to sport its logo on only one side of the helmet."

Cheapasses wouldn't even buy their QB a motorcycle helmet.

When the heck did they take this picture? Neither of them has taken a snap or even signed a contract. Isn't that the number 80 on his arm and he's wearing the number 82

They have some sort of rookie photo op deal...sponsored by someone, obviously.
