    Is it just me, or does the JazzFanz logo look a little flaccid? How about making an upgrade, ala 2000-era Bush pre-9/11, to something more reckless and badass? Oh, I don't know...like an actual silhouette of Sir Karl Malone dunking on a/multiple fool/s?

    All rights and lawyer-stuff aside (paging Sirkickyass), it doesn't take a genius to make this decish.

    It's the Mailman just dumptruckin' on fools like Craig Ehlo...what more can a rational human being want?

    Make the change, JF bigwigs. I don't want credit. I just want to see our proud supporter organization accredited.

    I think the current one was based on Jeremy Evans and it somehow has a tie-in with Malone... so it's sort of 'respecting the past, but also looking toward the future'

    Could you just use the silhouette of Malone? It looks great.

    Personally, and this is no offense to anyone, I think our current one sort of looks like some amalgamation of Iverson and Jordan rather than Malone.

    Good. Then nobody can claim copyright.

    That said, I'm happy to entertain other submissions. This one came from another person on this site.

    Not quite OneYoungNickkk, but I like where your head was at - don't listen to those other guys. So the Jazzfanz logo was the first logo I've ever tried to make - it was inspired by the PUMA logo. One of my favorites. I actually liked the JazzFanz logo without the tagline, but I suppose it;s cool to recognize how long the site has been live.

    The silhouette of Karl came straight from this image.

    My original idea was to have silhouettes of different jazz players appear in the logo each time you refreshed the page. Or maybe it switched up every few weeks with 10 players or so interchanging. Stockton, Eaton, Pistol, Griffith and some current guys. But that seemed like a ton of work and maybe not even possible.

    I definitely have no ownership or attachment to the current logo and sometimes wonder if/when it will change. I do think it was a nice transition logo while we got used to the new format/look of the site - it just kept things clean. But change is always good. Artistic expression even better. I loved the logo contest and always get a laugh from all the good and horrible photo shopping from Dala, Trout, McGibblets, and others.

    Cool bro - cos the silhouette seems a bit thinner than Karl's image I thought that surely it was Evans!!!
