The Detroit Lion's organization can only watch in what I would think is complete disbelief at what is occurring.

For most of the offseason, the organization has kept the new uniform and logo designs very close to their chest. Sure there has been more than enough subtle hints that the changes were coming, but the details were still as big a mystery as why Matt Millen kept his job as long as he did.

Then this happened.

The slip-up was originally reported by Philip Zaroo on Mlive.com, and the product has already been removed from NFLshop.com  

I for one cannot believe how the suspense was ended so unceremoniously, and I doubt that the Lions organization can either. I would expect a press conference in the next couple days, if the league doesn't try to sweep this under the carpet fairly quickly.

All that aside, I'm not a big fan of the new logo, but I am willing to wait until a larger and confirmed image is made available.

 

Update: prideofdetroit.com unearthed a possible confirmation on the logo, and what the new uniforms will look like. No official confirmation at this point, but it looks like it is pretty legitimate.
