The Wearing of the Little Green Dot

Even for a team as sartorially consistent as the Packers, changes abound. Last year, the NFL introduced a little green dot to mark all radio-equipped helmets:

This year, there are two modifications. First, the defense will be allowed to radio one player, which means a little green dot on both sides of the line. Second, the dot is New And Improved - no longer a plain Staples-issue sticker, but fully authorized and licensed by the National Football League. You can tell because they slapped their logo on it:

Last season I thought the dot was ugly, but hey - now that it's all official-like....

I'm sure I'm not the only one who found this somewhat familiar. Apparently Mr. Yuk comes radio-equipped.
