Yes, I'm a reactionary, but in terms of a team logo, I far prefer the old "Cowboy Joe" over the current blue star. Yes, the Star is simple and sleek, but Cowboy Joe has character, and actually looks like a Cowboy! He was designed back when most teams had character logos in the early 60s, and the Cowboys were competing against the Dallas Texans, whose logo at the time was a pistol-packing cowboy on a state of Texas background; you can see an image of it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:TexansLogo.JPG In terms of live mascots, does anyone seriously prefer Rowdy over the late Crazy Ray? I hate Rowdy -- he looks too corporate and too generic for my taste; again, Crazy Ray had character, who can forget the NFL Films image of him hamming-it-up with a Redskin mascot, wiping his brow with a Redskin pennant, etc. Ray was one of a kind.
