- i like the average Derby Fog shirt better than the shirts you pull out of your hat on week days.
Personaly, when I buy shirts for myself (rather than as gifts) they're more likely to be daily prints than derby offerings. Please keep them coming!
All snark aside though, I feel that Woot continues to try and offer a mix of daily and derby prints so that they truly can continue offering something that appeals to everyone. Derby voters, in general, seem to vote for 3 things almost exclusively: cute animals, pop culture, or generic nature scenes chock full of glowy-shiny-half-tones.
However, there is still a market out there for quirky, unusual, strange, unique, creative, outlandish, bizarre, etc. The sales numbers may not always be as high, but I, for one, am really happy to see Woot continuing to take a chance on designs that the majority would never vote into the fog, but still find a minority audience.
IMHO, the day Woot swaps over to a "derby only" system is probably the day I stop checking the site + purchasing shirts. I *like* the element of surprise on weekdays, and I hope there are still some others in the Woot community who feel the same.
