Hey, i'm on my phone so i could only check the first page of tsw to see if anyone else had posted this. But this is a pretty great article about the guy who designed the current bills logo which apparently turns 40 this year. Guy passed away last year and it sounds like the logo was one of his proudest achievements of his life. Good stuff.

If that doesn't work its on the tbd newsfeed.

How does this jive with the belief of some that Ralph stole the logo from Howard University?  :devil:

how could Ralph steal something when Stevens Wright took a freelance job with the NFL to  re-make the Bills’ logo?

Yeah I made an earnest attempt at searching for the earlier thread on the same subject but as usual, the search function was worthless for me.

I'm not a mod so it quickly became a waste of time.

Agreed. They must have the secret password given them when they are absorbed into the mod brotherhood.

Maybe the mods can figure out once and for all who really designed the charging buffalo logo.
