    Default New national championship trophy unveiled

    I am not impressed at all. Looks like a shiny piece of lipstick.

    After 12 games, 1 conference championship game (possibly) and two playoff games, I would think the trophy I would want to hoist would be something beefy, like the size of the Stanley Cup. This looks like something you would see in an art museum, not on the football field or in an athletics trophy case.

    Looks like a pen quill or what you put fancy pens in. The crystal ball always looked fragile. They need a Lombardi type trophy that can be passed around...go on tours. Like this one seen below...

    Looks like something you don't want to put on the pedestal.

    It was stated in the press conference that the gold part detaches from the base, so that it may be passed around. Faannnncy!

    That's awful. Only the new afc/nfc trophies are worse.

    To paraphrase The 40 Year Old Virgin, that looks like a ***** on a pedestal

    Or used as a make shift Fleshlight. It all depends on who is holding the trophy.

    I have it on good authority, Beldar, that this is the hat of the pontiff on the planet Remulak.

    Why? That was the worst trophy ever invented.

    It was so fragile the winning coach had to pick it up gingerly by their fingertips. Once they had it they slowly and carefully lifted it up into the air. Once they got it up past their foreheads they always chickened out out of a fear of dropping it and put it back ASAP. It was even too fragile to let members of the team take a turn. Terrible idea.

    Now this is a good example of a modern trophy. It's a perfect blend of traditional and modern. And most importantly it's strong enough to fist pump in the air and throw around without getting beat up.

    The MLS Cup Trophy:

    That was to represent how fragile everyone's chances are at winning a championship in that era. but seriously, the picture of the coach holding that crystal ball is iconic, this this is a got damn joke. Most conference championship trophies look better than that.
