Anyone got info on this logo from the early noughties?

As far as I know, it was a sparsely used secondary logo introduced to ensure we had some form of cat to use on merchandise and marketing materials. At the time, we were using the formal-looking 'Geelong Football Club' and 'GFC' logo as the primary logo

It's interesting to note that the secondary logo above never really caught on with many media sources, who continued using either the 'GFC' wordmark or the 80's-90's cat in graphics until late 2007 when the new logos were introduced

I haven't got any images unfortunately, but I do remember seeing the secondary logo on AFL Live 2003, as well as just the Cats eyes on a handful of old member caps. I don't think it was used any further than roughly 2004, and not long after the 2007 Premiership the ageing GFC logo was replaced by the two logos we see today, now with the snarling Cat featuring primarily and a silhouette Cat used fairly commonly, but I'd still refer to it as a secondary logo

Someone's been on the trademarks website. ;)

I seem to remember it being used in/on the "Cat Chat" magazine I used to receive but I couldn't find any examples just now.

However, I did find the following. A financial statement from 2002 and Select collector cards from 2002 and 2003.
