New Scoreboard... Swords, Huh?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So, if you'll notice, there are crossed swords behind the slug on the lower part of the new Sabres scoreboard. I'm sure many fans are excited by this, and might even be thinking "that would help our logo out a lot!"

Pardon my bluntness, but when I see that, all I can think is "PHAIL."

The lack of crossed swords is only one part of my hatred for the slug. While their inclusion on the scoreboard is nice, and reminds people of the actual team name (you know, the SABRES), the slug is still as impotent and silly as ever.

So if Larry Quinn thinks he can fool people into accepting this new idea as some sort of compromise, I hope that you'll be smarter than that. Remember, a polished turd is still a turd.

So help me if that ends up on our third jersey next year... *gag*

I have no idea out there who thought adding swords to the slug would make everyone happy. Maybe when the Sabres score slug juice sprays the crowd from the scoreboard.

See...the team knows what the fans want. Next thing you know, the goal horn is removed in favor of a yodler because that is what you want!
