Mr. Golisano,





We the undersigned, as fans of the Buffalo Sabres, protest the proposed team logo design for the 2006-2007 season. It is a poorly conceived atrocity that does not reflect the history, tradition, or class of the Buffalo Sabres team or its fans. The logo resembles neither a buffalo nor a sabre. It has been compared to numerous unflattering things, from a hairpiece to a slug. This logo is an embarrassment to the Buffalo Sabres as well as the fans that support them.





We the undersigned choose not to support this logo, and will not purchase any merchandise bearing its likeness. We believe that the team must go back to the drawing board and deliver something better to the fans that have supported this team throughout the years.

    • Mr. Golisano, you're a successful businessman because you've surrounded yourself with smart and talented people. You should fire the people who brought this design to you for not only lack of talent but lack of taste as well. Do what's right for the team, city and fans. Get a new design that is more reminiscent of the original.

    • if this "slug" version is in fact the logo-to-be, please reconsider. as a career designer/ design biz owner i have to say this concept completely misses the mark. i pray that this leaked version is a diversionary tactic.

    • I am so glad that I did a search to look for this "new" logo that I have been hearing about. I was even more glad that I was directed to this petition. Mr. Golisano, we have a great team that I am very proud to be a fan of and I don't want to disparage anyones work or creativity but this design is way off the mark. I love buying Sabres hats, shirts, and jerseys but I cannot in good conscience wear something with this logo on it. Please consider going back to the original blue and gold or at lest something similar. It is my favorite logo of any sport. We WANT to support our team but give us something we can be proud of. Thank you for your consideration in this matter and thank you for the great job you have done with the Sabres, I really appreciate it.

    • ************* SPREAD THE WORD FANS************************ (and non fans). If you e-mail just one, JUST ONE, newspaper, or magazine, or TV station, and tell the sports department of this horrific logo. We may have to only put up with this logo for a year. Tell the nation, Tell the Canadian Press. SPREAD THE WORD, AND THE WORD WILL SET US FREE .....of this crap.

    • The logo on the third jerseys would be the best, converted to blue and gold and then that way managment doesn't have to be embarrased by some average joe like me or anyone else making a better logo or having people compare a possible new sabres logo to one that was created by the fans over the past weeks. Because the Third logo already exists. It's the safest and probably the most logical thing to do. And it would be nice if the fans actually got what they want. They should be trying to please us . After all we pay the money.

    • Hi. I am not a Buffalo Sabre fan. I am a New York Ranger fan. I know what tradition is like and I would be appauled by the actions of the Buffalo Sabres organization right now. This logo is a disgrace to the team and to the fans. This logo looks like it took 5 minutes to think of. I think that, of all the teams in the current NHL, the Buffalo Sabres logo has been one of the best since the organization existed. If this is all they have to offer the team and the fans, this organization, they should be ashamed of themselves. I hope they rethink this logo and what they are doing to the team and the fans.

    • Being an Islander fan I know what its like to see your team's logo, history and pride desicrated by a bad logo. This new logo just went from bad to worse. However, its never too late to correct a wrong as the Islanders did. Just do a little retouching to the original logo by either darkening it or whatever, but for godsakes don't destroy the Sabres and huniliate their fans with that awful thing.

    • Actually, I've been an Islanders fan for 30 years. But I loved the old Sabres logo and agree that the new one is butt-ugly. Bring back the buffalo!

    • I'm not a Sabres fan but I wouldn't wish that logo on the worst team in the league let alone one as good as the Sabres.

    • Simple always seems to be best when it comes to logo design. I'm just not quite sure that amputating the buffalo's legs is the right way to achieve that simplicity.
