RIP Darrell Royal, Longhorns' coaching legend.

He was diplomatic and gracious when this historic moment happened in 1969, knowing that the whole scenario was unprecedented and outside the bounds of normal collegiate protocol.

"This is an excellent piece of merchandise that EVERY football fan should own. Never mind if you don't support LFC, this shirt is a fashion statement that says "I like football but mostly I like fashion." The only downside to this fabric perfection is that I cry tears of joy every time I wear it and The Kop is starting to fade . . . "

Fatty, that is awesome. I love LFC but whoever came up with this shirt needs to take a long holiday to contemplate the error of his or her ways.

This is the only downside to this garment, that and fighting sexually aroused ladies off your person as they go mad for the OFFICIAL LFC STADIUM PRINT SHIRT

What, nothing about the shirt's resistance to staining from snail trails?

The Football Weekly guys might be slightly less smug tomorrow after Celtic's performance tonight.

Ewan Murray seemed a bit... spiky... on Monday, so I hope they get him back on the phone for Extraaaaaaaaaaaa while they all eat their crow.

Holy Crap! It's being replaced on Fox Soccer right now. Probably have to tape it, but I need to see the end.

And they did seem less than friendly to Murray on Monday. But it was offset by AC Jimbo's opening line, "The biggest anti-climax since my uncle's wedding night".

That shirt's awful.

* Checks DCFC online shop* Nothing.

Yes, truly awful.

More "humourous" NFL logos here: NFC | AFC

Not as good as the pre-season effort, but a couple favourites...

The Dallas one was awesome.

Love the Broncos. That's perfect.

I still miss that Houston Oilers logo, even when seeing it broken.

The Redskins one would have been better if he just added dreds to the original logo.

What's the Dallas one referencing?

They're playing like the Astros.
