Is that supposed to be a monkey getting thrown off the bull's back?

That's the only thing that I think it could be. :um:

No we are bucking our opponents out! We are bull dozing other teams. Not a monkey, it's a person with shoes.

No if we was getting bucked off his head would be going forward, but his head is going back like he just got gored and tossed back.

For some reason when I saw our logo, I took it as bucking the Cowboys out of being the favorite football team in Texas. That may be looking into it too much though.

They did the Chiefs and Titans sorry. LOL!!!!

'eh, that's cool. I don't have a strong enough opinion about it to really debate it, much less care. I'll take y'all's word for it.

I think it's trying too hard when you have to think about it at all. Most of the other logos are instant understanding. Ours was just kinda' weak, IMO.

Just for fun, though...

I didn't see your post, but good point!

I did ask Kurt Snibbe to clarify, just out of curiousity. Somebody (not him) already replied "It is bucking the texans aren't good enough to gore someone". Yeah, riiiiiiight *cough*loser*cough*

I believe that the illustrator is making fun of our Texans (like some of the other logos are doing of their respective teams). That looks more like a cow bucking than a bull. Some are not still convinced the Texans, despite their record, are worthy of mention amongst the elite. Now, maybe if the illustrator would have drawn in some cajones......................:kitten:

http://www.localharvest.org/newsletter/20090122/images/bucking_heifer_250x200.jpg

Imagine my amazement when I opened my newsletter yesterday, and there was my baby girl, Cali Rae- bucking the lights out. I figure there are going to be folks out there who are not familiar with bucking bred cattle and so am posting this entry to make sure you all know that these animals are not made to buck, they are bred to buck and then treated so well that they feel wonderful, and demonstrate their athletic abilities with little encouragement.

Cali Rae is the first calf to be born here are the 4B Ranch. That was two and a half years ago now. The photo in the Jan 22, 09 newsletter was taken at Buckin Buckley last June when we bucked all our unbred females to make sure they had the athletic ability and temprament for this sport. They had only a flank rope looped around their hips, which they were easily able to kick off in 6 seconds.

Professionally, only bulls are bucked as females are more valuable for breeding.link (http://www.localharvest.org/blog/17371/tags/cow)

There are links to previous attempts, 2011, 2010, & 2009. The Jets' ones are pretty funny.

I know he covered it so I didn't feel compelled to correct him again. The 12 Tasks of Asterix was a childhood favorite.
