OT: Vote for CFP logo or just cheat like Texas people do

As you would have expected, someone from Texas has inflated voting on the new College Football Playoff logo contest. The individual tried voting for the ninja star football 50,000 plus times.  Below is a link to the short article, also a linked to the actual voting site. I personally feel like I could have made the logos myself on Microsoft paint, but went with logo number two. There is also a hype video for the new playoff on the voting site as well. Go there and pick your poison.

This is something that will attract millions of viewers and bring in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of revenue.  Yet, this branding campaign is beyond terrible.  Any publicly held entity would never go with anything like this because shareholders would puke in their face.  Alas, this is all being run by people who smooz a bunch and get $600,000 paychecks for running one game per year...

If someone really wantedto do a service while trying to alter anything, they should have at least given the public a fifth option to lessen the chances of one of the other four designs winning this contest, or even a "none of the above" option. If you're going to tinker with this particular contest, at least do it sensibly. 

Even my son, who is rather easy-going, took one look at the page and said simply, "No."
