Giants - no contest.

Looks like my 6 year-old drew the injun.

How is this even a question? The Indians logo sucks.

Agreed.

Giants. That Indian drawing looks very amateurish.

How many logos are participating in this battle?

Deomcratic society. The logos drew each other in round one.

How many logos are participating in this battle?

As many as I can find or until things get so boring you try to kill me with those rocky hands.

Winner is the first to ten votes, and then we'll get to the second matchup.

This is important stuff -- you can't set the field as you go! Get 24 or 32 or 64 or whatever and set this thing up proper.

I don't see either of these two going to the finals.

Setting it all up at once will take some work, and you konw how I feel about that.

My employers also object to me showing effort that doesn't involve their products and services.

I'll try and set a bracket up this weekend, though it'll be tough then also, as I'm having Dickshots to dinner on Sunday.

Giants win 7-3.

Any of the three Indian voters want to share their thinking?

I thought the winner needed ten votes?

If the voting ends after a total of ten votes, when there's a 5-5 tie then I guess you have to hope that an 11th person votes.

Yeah, I guess I kind of changed the rules arbitrarily.

Anybody with the time and insanity to set up a 264-logo bracket, or whatever, feel free. Otherwise, maybe Uni-Watch will.

I decided to put that sad excuse of an Indian logo out of it's misery. I cast the tenth vote for the Giants logo. Now we have a winner by Edgy's original rules for the contest.
