More on bad logos

This site is about three months shy of being up and about for two years, and in that time, there've been a lot of popular posts.

None, however, have drawn as much reaction — and vitriol — as the worst logos of all-time.

After dozens of emails, 10,000+ visitors and even a link from Fark, I think I've now seen more submitted awful logos than I thought I'd see in my lifetime. I've heard the arguments for and against everything from the Colorado Rockies mountain to the Islanders 'Captain Highliner', and the relative ugliness of the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs in comparison to the Macon Whoopee.

And I've had enough.

So, please — please — stop sending me links to the New Mexican Banjo Playing Salamanders home page. I've seen it, and it isn't pretty.

Besides, I am not even the bad-logo expert. Colby Cosh is.

Now, if there's one thing I've learned from this madness, it's that people love to talk bad logos. Which means the Buffalo Sabres, in creating the Buffaslug abomination, may have just generated some much-needed publicity for their small-market club.

And how's that a bad thing?

I dunno, James, your Chris Pronger post back in June generated a lot more reaction - some of it quite heated - which even drew me into it.

I resent being referred to as an expert in anything, but I do appreciate the extra traffic from the farkle-down effect. If you want to revisit the theme later (which sounds unlikely) let me just note that you've still got an entire continent, resplendent with its own horrible logos, left to cover.
