I think you should make it more clear were voting for which logo is worse. If someone were just a casual visitor they might not realize that's the point.

David said...

Oh, I see the little spiel there now. But I think some ppl might not read it.

Chris said...

I'm actually working on the post at this very moment. Patience, please. Don't worry, it'll be clear that we're voting for the WORST logo.

Atownjacket said...

damn....I just voted on the logo I liked more....

James said...

I voted for the Goat Head. The BuffaSlug may be ugly and not have legs, but at least it's blue and gold.

Michaela said...

Slug is going to win the tournament. Hands down.

this is all my opinion but i personally like the 1996 logo i know i dosnt have a sabre anywhere so its not a good representation of the team but its one of the cooler looking logos out there btw the buffaslug logo is horrible and is getting my vote

MrBionic said...

I don't honestly think that the buffaslug has any chance of not 'winning' this thing.

The hatred for it runs deep, and it doesn't even have the "It's so bad I kind of like it" vibe that many of these other bad logos do.

Ryan said...

No contest. Although there are some other logos that could touch this.

Arenacale said...

The Buffaslug would, as shown a few days ago, make an excellent NFL logo. But it just doesn't work for hockey. The buffalo head concept could at least be massaged into something useable.

Just wondering why it ALWAYS says "Thank you, we have already counted your vote" after I click on "vote". Even when I haven't yet voted.

Snarf said...

At least I can tell the "goathead" logo is a Buffalo. The first time I saw the "Buffaslug" logo was a few days before it came out and I thought it was a joke because it looked like a fish. I am a Sabres fan and try to buy stuff with the original logo which the Sabres sell a lot of. Yeah I do have some stuff with the "Buffaslug" but not much. And the "goathead" is gone, nobody breaks it out on the streets or at the game like they do the original stuff.

nogoodbye said...

I found it really funny, watching the San Diego/Indianapolis NFL game on Sunday, how similar the Chargers logo looks compared to the "buffaslug", especially when placed on a blue background. (ie Chargers coaching pullovers)

Drew Celestino said...

Let's go Buffalo! This is one contest in which I will fully support the slug. All the way baby!

John said...

How are the two Canucks logo's in the worst logo contest when their nearly identical secondary logo finished second in the contest for the best?

John said...

I was talking about the two featuring the hockey stick just to clarify.

Matthew said...

I'm not voting in this matchup in protest of virtually everyone rubbing themselves at the thought of that godawful orignal Sabres logo, but the buffaslug definately takes the cake.

Jason said...

Ugh. I'm stupid and voted for the '96 logo. Too used to voting for what I like best! Oh well, hopefully enough people are smarter than me and vote for the current logo so that my vote doesn't make much difference.

ranndino said...

I think the only way to explain that the Buffalo head of '96 got even 24% is that some people don't read the f-ing directions and have voted for the one they like more because, seriously, it's no contest. The black, red and silver unis were very cool also. I was shocked when I heard that they changed again. If they were going to change so soon after totally revamping the look they should have just went back to the original ones. The slug along with Vancouver's orca are the two worst logos in the NHL right now.

"I was shocked when I heard that they changed again. If they were going to change so soon after totally revamping the look they should have just went back to the original ones."

Soon? A decade is soon? Not soon enough if you ask me.

But yes, they should have gone back to the originals, or at least "modern" updates of the originals.

Charlie @ Sabres Not Slugs said...

The return of the Sabres to Blue and Gold should not have included such a terrible logo that has drawn so many associations but hardly any which resemble a Buffalo or Sabres.

It is the poster child for shitty logo design.

Kathleen said...

The slug is the worst logo ever..

mp3xtreme44 said...

There called the buffalo SABRES, not the Buffalo BUFFALOS

Daniel said...

I think the '96 buffalo spent a little too much time with Barry Bonds' trainer. That thing is just ridiculous - possibly the 2nd-worst logo in NHL history (behind the old Flames fire-breathing horse).

DENNIS said...

DEATH to that EMBARRASSMENT!!!
That slug SUCKS!
And I'll NEVER buy or wear it.
It's the WORST!!!!
