It's a great play on the words but without the title, the element has nothing to do with the shirt.

See, I'm not sure if that's a problem or not. I asked in the main derby thread yesterday if the design itself would have to be linked to the element, or if the title was all that was required. I think you're right that it should be tied to the element, but I'm not sure what woot thinks about that.

Chris - the art is great. I'm still not sure why you haven't been printed yet. Don't give up!

"as long as the focal point of your design is one element and only one element"

It's an interesting question. This quote, taking from the Derby Theme announcement leads me to believe that the focal point has to be an element. Although, if this is true, said rule would also apply to This shirt as well.

But the seaborgium design also has the green water, implying that the chemical element may have had a role in the failed experiment.

I think this one might still be safe. In the derby description, woot did say it was acceptable to "riff on the name." That's basically what this design does. But I'm still not sure.
