I went with the second of the non-finalist. It has a very coastal indigenous feel to it. (Though I am not sure if the concept of the team name is not a great fit for Edmonton. Vancouver, sure, but not really Edmonton.)

2008-08-08T13:40:00.000-04:00

Yeah, I was going to use the helicopter Seahawk myself, rather than the bird, but I couldn't find a decent way to work it into a logo.

Third non-finalist.

I'm not sure what the third finalist is supposed to be. I'm hoping it's just an "S" because that's what I'm seeing, but I'm not sure.

Am I the only one who got the 408 Edmonton Tactical Helicopter Squadron connection...The Seahawk doesn't have to be a bird people.

SeahawksSam: I'm not a fan of Seattle's football team, but I've always thought they had one of the best logos in the NFL. In fact, I went with non-finalist number two, and I think a large part of it is that it reminded me of Seattle's logo.

That being said, I have to agree with all the people who don't get the "Edmonton Seahawks" name. It reminds me of those oh-so-appropriate names

2008-08-07T21:56:00.000-04:00

This tournament is a great idea, and I praise the guy who came up with it for that, but it seems to me that you should at least look at a map of where the cities are in the country. If you had, you would see that Edmonton is nowhere near the ocean or even a lake.

@ chuck

Thank you! Finally I can see it! I zoomed it and now I see the head of the seahawk. It's not bad, I like it. As it looks with normal zoom, it was impossible for me to understand..

I like the non finalists #3. The finalists #1 doesnt even look like a seahawk.

2008-08-07T19:08:00.000-04:00

Being from Seattle and having a sports team named the Seahawks in town, you have to be a fan of the team to really enjoy the logo, I guess. I love the Seattle Seahawks logo, but it's hard to love for people who aren't fans of the team.

I chose #2, and #1 would make a great alternate.



These are lousy. All of them.

#2 is the hands-down leader right now? Wow.
Being from Edmonton, I'd never buy a jersey... but then again, we'd never have a team named the Seahawks either.

I made the E with the feathers as secondary, just as Tony made his logo.



#2 is clearly the slug of the IHA.

2008-08-07T15:11:00.000-04:00

Voted for #2, I can understand why people don't quite see the hawk in this logo but I guess it's a matter of perspective. I saw and immediately identified it as the head of a hawk. Those who see a whale are looking it an entire body.

I vote for the black E with the two feathers hanging

2008-08-07T14:17:00.000-04:00

yeah, there's an amazing amount of secondary logos in these.

i think part of the problem is the vector imaging. do that many people really have Adobe Illustrator? that's the only program that i know of that can do those images.

i bet a lot of these logos looked a lot different in photoshop. it loses a certain grit and realism when it's converted. that's why, imo, a lot of

@ Ogre,

Would the author's fantasy league include a live or auto draft?

2008-08-07T13:53:00.000-04:00

I personally like the first, third and fourth runner ups better than all three finalists. I voted for the third runner up, it would look the best on a jersey.

All I can think of when I see that first logo is Space Invaders.

2008-08-07T13:35:00.000-04:00

Does anyone else have the feeling that Chris is tricking us, and this is actually a vote for secondary logos?

From what people have said so far it's been their secondaries that have made it to the finalists, maybe this is some sort of trick. hmmmmmm.

2008-08-07T13:34:00.000-04:00

Finalist #2 Would look AWESOME on a jersey, And Finalist #1 Would be an AWESOME Shoulder Patch.

2008-08-07T13:31:00.000-04:00

This was a hard one to vote on. None stood out. I voted for #1 because ... well, I don't know why. Just because. Its not great, but at least it could possibly look OK on a jersey. I like the look of #3, but I cannot see the fricken E. I know it is supposed to be there, but I can just see the S. It would still look good as a secondary logo.
