I only did it because I had excuse to, hence the first letter of my name.

I had a friend who drew these once, we were making pins as little kids and had this lame machine that took a picture and made it into a really bad pin. I was too little to be able to draw it, but she taught some of the older kids. It could just be a classic thing thats easy to draw and looks cool, like how kids draw stars.

That symbol is totally wasted in fraternity houses...
It needs a new home in the shape of the County Ground.
What I'm trying to say is ,it could be used as the new logo of Swindon Town.
Our penultimate logo did have a pointed shape but with the S inside.
It's the best thing to do to promote the first division champions elect.
However it could turn us from a legend into an urban legend which is the only down side.

I clearly remember drawing it in the 70s in Columbus Georgia. Everyone drew this S. I always thought it came from the Suzuki logo

champions elect? Aren't you 4th lol. My sky blues are going well. Might be seeing you at Wembley soon!

Now don't get me wrong I love what you've done with the place, I just wish we had a chance to help build it, instead of just moving into this home of disrepair and expected to work,prosper and then care - enter shakari-juggernauts

We might be fourth but the only possible rival for the title is Doncaster Rovers.
The rest with their still outstanding cup dates are just getting too inconsistent.
You would have expected more from the likes of the Franchise and Sheffield United.
The plastic scousers are getting ready to join their ranks because they are having it this Saturday.
Tbh I think Swindon Town are booked for second at least but we'll see what happens in that televised six pointer at Doncaster in April.
I'll have to say that Coventry City look rather flattered by seventh because the teams behind have games in hand.
And they have replaced Mcgoldrick with Leon Clarke who's still villiefied by Swindon fans.
However your in a better position than Portsmouth and Hartlepool United.
Usually these sleeping giants get promoted in their second season in the lower leagues.

I agree we're definitely playing above our ability at the minute but don't think playoffs is too optimistic but don't think we'll go up this season.

Wow I never realized this was a worldwide thing! The town I live in starts with an S so I always thought that was where it came from, guess not!

I'm beginning to think the play-offs is optimistic for us as well.

It looks like our manager is going to resign,the consortium takeover is on shaky ground and we didn't get the players we were hoping for. And Bournemouth had the brass neck to steal Matt Ritchie under our noses.Which is why Paulo feels the situation at Swindon Town is untenable. But I'll have to say last night he was very non- committal in his post- match interview last night. I think he's hanging on to see if Sam Alladyce gets a contract extension at West Ham.

At least you've still got Leon Clarke. Tbh I think you will end up at Wembley but it won't be the play-off final. It's just too tight to call and you've got a severe disadvantage.

Drew this is 2nd-3rd grade, I remember kids putting paperclips into S's as well. I remember the teacher telling everyone to quit drawing this S and leaving those paperclips around as well. lol

I remember doing this in elementary school in the early 90s.  We also had a fad where we'd trace over it with glue and sprinkle crayon shavings over it so it was 3d and rainbow.  :tu:
