In October of this year, there was some controversy over a proposed update to the classic "handicapped" symbol. And, well, we all know what happened next - the updated version of the symbol was fully adopted and is in full, mainstream use to this day. But let's go back in time for a moment, join the SA Forum Goons, and take a look at what could have been.

Personally I think the new symbol looks like a guy falling backwards into a hole, but the old one looked like a half human/wheelchair monster. Either way, I'm pretty sure goons can do better!

Here's my submission:


I gave the handicapped guy cool tank-tread feet and a laser eye so he can be badass even though he's handicapped.


In this one, the handicapped man is laying down some sweet dunks against a "normal" person, showcasing just what it means to be a modern handicapped man on the go.
