Comment of the Day: Redskins & NFL Logo Faces

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning or afternoon from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We looked at the largely hidden faces that are part of many NFL logos -- faces that are supposed to inspire fear, we guess, but instead seem to form a mishmash of bored/annoyed/angry/confused expressions.

We noted the Redskins, apparently trying (and failing) to go with "quiet dignity" in their Native American character.

One reader took note.

i've always wondered why the dolphin on miami's helmet isn't the same as the team's...

the old bucaneers logo used to be known as "barry gibb"...

as for the redskins, many outside of texas use "texan" as a pejorative... but i guess snyder and the nfl feel any criticism has yet to reach a level that would override the brand recognition invested in "redskins"
