Sterling, here we go again

can you display an image of your design so we can compare?

I also see at least partial ripoffs of Fordham's athletic logo and the old Detroit Gladiators (WHA) logo. Not to mention the full ripoff of the Minnesota Wild logo.

The leaf behind the ripoff of Sterling's moose is the non-football portion of the CFL logo.

Hey, I guess if you wanna get sued, might as well do it with gusto...

That leaf would be a little tough to prove considering a red maple leaf can only be displayed so many ways before they start to look like each other, but I do recognize the resemblance to the CFL logo as well.

BTW, how do these designers get away with this?

NICE!!

Before I get to uppity, is this something that makes money?

The only the helmet/head and the general shape of the Gladiators' logo were copied. The helmet is identical by my comparison but the shield, arm and stick are all different, just in the same positions.

It's a junior A hockey league, I don't believe they have merchandise for sale, but they promote the local teams in the local papers and what not. So they have to be making some sort of profit on ticket sales?

I don't know if this really makes a difference, but I don't think there's really much of a profit being made from a league like this. Wouldn't profits go into league/rink fees and travel costs? I know there are leagues as this level around New England, and most (if not all) profits are funded back into the team.

In theory, it shouldn't make a difference. The team shouldn't be using the logo illegally.

The Moose now own that mark, not me.

THat, and the fact that these folks aren't getting rich off of it, are two reasons why I'm tempering my outrage.

Don't mistake me. It's 100% wrong and unethical and just.........crap. Like always. It's been a long three years of chasing down all these abuse leads and sending nasty-gram emails (which technically I have no authority to do).

And heck....in a really disgusting way, it's flattering.

I'll let the Moose know and let them follow up if they want.

This cap looks like it's for sale. Or at least will be.

So do the polos & jackets they have online.

I'd like to compose a song about this little scandal, however I'm having trouble finding a word that rhymes with "Kolodziej."

Why not substitute the Anglicized version of it... colostomy?

streeter isn't gonna appreciate you jacking his scthick
