A challenge

I know it's been a while since I've posted last, but bear with me.

I was at work last night, pondering the Slug while basking in the glory of a Leaf raking yet again. I know all you crest-faithful out there hate the Slug, but there is something to be said about it. While the body is butt-ugly, the face of it provides some interesting details that could actually be the basis for a solid logo. Seriously. Turn it forward, so the only visible part of the image is the face. The detailing around the eyes, the horns, the sharp angles - place that face over a pair of crossed sabres, and imagine how nifty that logo would look. Kinda scary, kinda cool, and most importantly not the Slug. It would be a return to the concept we all love - a buffalo and swords featured prominently, proudly displaying our city and team.

I know it sounds like heresy to find a silver lining in that joke, but hear me out. I would love to see some designs by fans out there who want to get rid of this embarassing logo. I don't exactly know where they would be submitted to, but I'm sure something would work. Alright everyone, get to it!

There have been some great ideas...some of them so simple yet so brilliant in their creation.
