Keep The Gamecock Logo As it Is sign now

We, the undersigned

Wish to express our desire to see the University of South Carlina "Gamecock" logo, consisting of a Fighting Gamecock or Cock, with fighting spurs stay as it is. We would like to express our desire to see Governor Sanford, President Sorenson and Atheltic Director Hyman take a strong stand against the political correctness of the People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals. As it stands "Cockfighting" within the borders of South Carolina is illegal, and we the undersigned support such laws making the "sport" of "Cockfighting" illegal. We the undersigned do not wear said logo for the purpose of supporting the blood sport that is "Cock-fighting," or any blood sport in which animals are involved. And anyone that does violate such laws by harming any animal in the name of sport, is willfully ignorant and in violation of the laws of the Great State of SOuth Carolina. What we do recognize is that the "Gamecock" or rooster is a valiant animal, with a brave spirit, that outside the admiring of honorable men and women, is an animal worthy to be emulated. We further state that we support such logo as a symbol of athletic pride and tradition, and our desire to see students which participate in the University of South Carolina athletics take on that brave, valiant spirit in all their personal and athletic endeavours.

While much more can be said we, the undersigned, have put our name to this petition to duely express ourselves to the above stated individuals, in hope that they will, as public servants, heed this petition and act accordingly to its expressed desires.
