In Roman Numerals, the letter “L” is the number 50, which, as it happens, is the version of the Super Bowl that will be played in February 2016.
The NFL knowing a branding problem when it sees it, has decreed that that this years game will break with the tradition of using Roman numerals to identify the sequence.
It’ll be simply”Super Bowl 50″. Not “Super Bowl L”.
