Super Bowl grounds crew paints Broncos logo in both end zones (pics)
A minor but amusing slip-up has occurred as Levi’s Stadium is transformed from the home of the San Francisco 49ers to the host of Super Bowl 50. The NFL grounds crew in charge of preparing the field accidentally painted the Denver Broncos logo in both end zones, overlooking that one of the end zones should have featured the Carolina Panthers logo.
How come all the end zone pictures are just the Broncos for #SB50? Because someone painted the wrong end zone. pic.twitter.com/mLsuc8LBk8

To get it out of the way right from the get-go: Great googly moogly.
By taking a closer look at the erroneously painted end zone, one can see the faint outline of the Broncos logo.

While conspiracy theorists who believe that their is a pro-Broncos, anti-Panthers bias heading into the 50th installment of the Super Bowl will cry foul, the gaffe was realized and quickly rectified.

Now that one major controversy has been averted, all that’s left to do is wait for the next one. With two weeks between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, there is plenty of time to look to deeply into pretty much every component related to not only the game itself but the preparations involved in preparing for it as well.
