    Yeah I never understood Packers? Is Green Bay known for packing?

    Redskins is down right offensive. It's like having the N word on a helmet.

    But about the thread :
    Here in LV we have the 51's always liked that.
    Houston Astros
    Minnesota Vikings
    Minnersota Twins

    I never felt DRAWN to a particular name. I'm still waiting for sports to go completely corporate and do away with city affiliations:

    EXAMPLES:

    The Microsoft Mavericks
    The Ford Lions
    The Pepsi Avalanche
    The Taco Bell Chiauaha's

    If my idea comes to fruition sports teams would no longer be based out of a city. They would become a traveling show of sorts.

    One day, fans in Nashville see Pepsi Avalanche vs. Coca-Cola Red Wings. The next day they see Prudential Capitals vs. Sunkist Stars.

    The Packers are named after a packing company. The Indian Packing Company, who had financially backed the team. They were called the Indians at first, later changed it to the Packers.

    And yeah the Redskins have to change that name, but it probably won't happen. I know a lot of people don't really see it as one, but that is basically a racial slur being used as a nickname.

    I don't know if that will happen, you need the hometown support/identity and build rivalries.

    Red Bull New York or New York Red Bulls from MLS seems like something more likely to happen. Or the incorporation of a company/product logo into the team's logo.

    It's not Canadians. It's Canadiens. It's the French name for what they consider the first French settlers to Canada (welll that's the implication). That's why the team's nickname is the Habs. It stands for Les Habitants.

    And I like thier name. Any team with names that actually have historical significance I always like. The Blackhawks, The Ravens, etc, I think all are great names.

    Given the pirate activity the bay area has had in it's history, I've always thought that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a great name for a team here.
    Though their original unis left something to be desired. :o

    And seeing as how it's one of the lightning capitals on the planet, the Tampa Bay Lightning is a good name too.

    And, like others, I'm a big fan of the Orlando Magic. One of the best names in sports.
