    Does anyone recall the logo which fans booed out in favor of the then-current Pat Patriot logo circa 1979? What did it look like? Does anyone have any images?

    I recall it was a stylized, squarish waving American flag with the chisled profile of a Patriot's face on the (left?) edge, evoking the former Old Man of the Mountains face in New Hampshire. I believe there were no stars in the flag, just the blue field and a reduced number of red/white stripes.

    Thanks

    They talked about this on PFW in Progress a few weeks ago - I'm sure if you e-mailed them they would answer the question on the show tomorrow - or someone here with a better memory of the discussion can tell us.

    This would be a great find. I searched seven ways from Sunday on Google and couldn't find it. Pro'ly because it was pre-internet (August 24, 1979).

    My bet is it is better than Elvis.

    A dollar to whomever produces an image.

    I have a 1979 schedule that on the front cover has a "Captain America" looking type of Patriots cartoon character on it. I'll try to photo download and display.

    Wow. I had completely erased that from my memory - and for good reason. That's just horrible; it may even be worse than Steely McBeam.

    Yikes. "Failed" indeed. Ambiguously fascinating character.

    NO, NO ! Nothing wrong with that at all ! He might not play on the same team as I do (didn't see him on the bench or at practice) but there is nothing wrong with his team.

    Yikes. It looks like Captain America joining the Village People. A tad too much emphasis on the package area I'd say.

    That guy isn't what was painted on the field for the fan vote, though. Thread starter described what I remember; a profile of a (somewhat) Elvis looking character against a blue rectangle.

    Those are the kinds of meaty thighs, tight abs and bulging package that I like to see on all of my mascots. Today's mascots are way too fat and hetero for me.

    It looked something like the patriot in this image only it had a square flag around it.
