Super Bowl XLIX Sunday, I just wanted to Write Roman Numerals. Next year they will not use the Roman Numeral for the super bowl, a single digit, L I got to wondering about next years promotion of the super bowl with just the L for fifty and this is what I found on the internet;

from ESPN on line;
"The Roman Empire has fallen.

The NFL announced on Wednesday that Super Bowl 50 will be graphically represented using standard Arabic numerals instead of Roman numerals, which the league has been using since Super Bowl V in 1971.

It's a one-year break, said Jaime Weston, the league's vice president of brand and creative, because the "L" isn't as pleasing to the eye.

The NFL will break from tradition and go without a Roman numeral on the Super Bowl 50 logo. However, order will be restored for Super Bowl LI in 2017.
"When we developed the Super Bowl XL logo, that was the first time we looked at the letter L," Weston said. "Up until that point, we had only worked with X's, V's and I's. And, at that moment, that's when we started to wonder: What will happen when we get to 50?"

Weston said her team has been working on the Super Bowl 50 logo since April 2013, having gone through 73 versions. At some point along the way, it was concluded that having the "L" stand alone didn't work.

The league has made two logos for the game, which will take place Feb. 7, 2016, at Levi's Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers. Both the national and regional logo feature the "50" in gold, serving to call attention to the game's golden anniversary as well as the game's location in the "Golden State.""
