although a nice design it doesn't fit the derby theme to well. I understand he maybe odd for wearing a fireman's hat but too me he just looks cute and not too much of an oddball.

Nice IT Crowd reference. I think it DOES fit the theme.

Thanks for the backing michellezors and lilaviel!

Also I get where you're coming from midgerock, but give it another think in a water water everywhere frame of mind.

In short, if there were more firefighter sea lions, there would be one less orphan in the world.

Actually, I'm pretty sure in the pre-derby thread one of the woot staff made a comment about how the oddball had to be the odd one out of a group of 3 or more. He can't be an oddball by himself...

Hmm too right you are, can't believe I missed that. Guess I'll have to turn in my library card and go back to the remedial reading group. I do wish the derby would have clarified that in the opening post more thoroughly though, as I thought the exact "one of these things is not like the other" was just a suggestion on how to make something odd stand out MORE.

Oh well, not like I'm getting much love with this idea anyway. Guess I'll just wait to see if they reject it while I whittle away on a resub.

Thanks for the heads up though jeanerz13, cheers!

Good luck! Didn't mean to be a downer by pointing that out, but hopefully now you have time to get it reworked

::chuckles:: You're not a downer dear, and there's no worries here.
Heck, if my ego couldn't take someone pointing out a simple lack of deductive reading on my part, I think I'd have bigger worries to address.

Redesigned to fit in better with the derby theme/rules. I fear it may be too cute though now.

Redesign is here:
Laugh while you can.
