Erik said...

bug v bull, one is relevant, the other doesnt have anything to do with the team name, still, im voting the bug, its just ugly

Bryan said...

I don't mind either. That Mighty Duck is worse.

Jacob said...

Ya, the bug is ugly, but it's relevant, and it's never been on the front of a jersey.

Cowstellation is going to at least the semis in this tourney.

THE BUG IS NOT RELEVANT.
THE BUG WAS NEVER RELEVANT.
Anyone who votes for the constellation over the bug because of "relevance" still has no idea what "Blue Jackets" means.

The Bull, by comparison, is far more relevant - it actually features, y'know, STARS, rather than a badly-recolored Confederate jacket on some idiot bug who STILL TO THIS DAY contributes to its teams' lack of respect.

Vote the bug. It's the only sensible way.

Emo said...

sorry, but regardless of "relevance", the Mooterus is UGLY as hell.

I also don't get the people saying the Stars logo is irrelevant. They're the Stars. A group of stars make a constellation. They picked Taurus, probably thinking it would go over well as a tough symbol and probably hoping it could lead to a team mascot. Plus, isn't Texas known for having a ton of cattle? Perhaps an Orion holding a hockey stick woulda been better, but a constellation is DEFINITELY relevant for a team named the Stars. This particular one simply is funny because of, well, an anatomical likeness.

The BlueJackets logo is also relevant, but IMO, less relevant. Sure, the bug is wearing a Union uniform, but a bug? It's so cartoony and minor league looking. Why not a Union soldier holding a hockey stick like a rifle or something?

The bug gets my vote because better things coulda been done with the team name (as is evidenced by the hat logo and their current primary). The Stars, well, how much can you do with a star? At least they tried.

Re: the bug's relevance to Columbus, I just assumed that the "Blue Jacket" bug was invented to combine the imagery of the Civil War jacket and the bug known as the yellow jacket (wasp). There's no actual insect called a blue jacket, but there is such a thing as a yellow jacket, and the team's name is the Blue Jackets.. not too much of a stretch there

one of the mooterus' ovaries is bleeding... har har har

Just to tell you how much I hate the Mooterus. I have collected every third jersey from every team, EXCEPT The Mooterus jersey. That's how awful that thing is.

moooooooooooooooo!

That Stars logo is just horrible and an to their history.

Bob said...

There is no way the the bug will win this one.

Daniel said...

I think it's a little unfair that the Stars logo gets so much crap just because somebody noticed that it kinda looks like a uterus. Yes, we can all see the similarity... but it still looks a lot more like a cow, which is what it's supposed to be. I don't see anyone dissing the Habs logo because it looks a bit like a certain male reproductive part.

I think I'm gonna have to vote for the bug in this one. He's just too ridiculous.

Chicken Wings said...

the bug has no relevance at all I just think they picked a bug because of the "yellow-jacket" wasp

SharkFan said...

RELEVANCE IS NOT THE ISSUE HERE! ITS WORST LOOKING LOGO THATS THE ISSUE! AND MOOTERUS IS JUST THAT MY FRIENDS!

Jason said...

That bug is SO minor league. Kids league, even.
