  1. I nearly forgot about the Forest Dragons. Good call.
  2. Also, in terms of the expansion cities themselves, I honestly feel the Austin/San Antonio market would flourish as a MLB market. Question is, how much would the Rangers and Astros try to claim territorial rights? Hypothetically, If you put the team in Red Rock (which is 45 minutes from Austin, 1 hour and change to San Antonio) and seems to be a moderate middle ground -- or as close as they could get, it's over 200 miles from there to Dallas and about 150 to Houston. From Austin to Dallas, it's 195 miles... To Houston, it's 165... From San Antonio, it's just under 200 miles to Houston and about 275 to Dallas. That's plenty of distance between the two areas.
  3. I like it too, however like you, I am almost 100 percent certain any MLB team that calls Montreal home will be named Expos. Dragons might not be an awful name for Portland..
  4. If anything, I think the cities that step to the forefront as expansion hopefuls can be used by the Rays and A's as the "sweetheart who is eyeing me up" leverage deal to get Oakland and Tampa/St. Pete to crap or get off the pot in terms of getting the groundwork for new stadiums.
  5. A Mexico City ballpark would make Coors Field look like a pitcher friendly ballpark by comparison.
  6. With recent talks of possible MLB expansion, a discussion of branding possibilities seems appropriate. That said, what are some name ideas that come to mind for potential baseball expansion teams? Montreal seems obvious.. If they go with anything BUT Expos, I'll be surprised.. Portland and the other possible cities though are wide open.
  7. Rebranding the Braves?

    I always wondered what Turner's proposed Eagles rebrand would have potentially turned out like
  8. Unrelated Teams with Related Names...

    Cardinals and Saints are both major parts of the Catholic faith.
  9. Las Vegas Raiders Brand Discussion

    Kronke won't. Only ones I might see voting against it are the Rooneys, McCaskey and Mara.
  10. Las Vegas Raiders Brand Discussion

    With as much money as casinos here "rob" people, the pirate theme seems quite fitting for Las Vegas. Nothing will change. The Raider brand is pretty close to iconic.
  11. With how the NFL has brought back older names in their last bit of expansion/rebrandings, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Chargers rebrand to the LA Bulldogs name.
  12. Dallas Mavericks Unused Concept

    I really like that second one
  13. Unpopular Opinions

    These were the best Hawks jerseys by far
  14. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    Foley's comments to ESPN.com about this issue. "Our development and use of the name Vegas Golden Knights was based upon Nevada being the largest gold producing state in the country and the golden tones of the Las Vegas strip," Rigggggghhhhhhtttttt Bill.. And I have a casino in Pahrump I'd like to sell you. Your story would be far more believable if you didn't make it clear and obvious from the get go that you had a raging hard on to name the team something Army-esque. People aren't stupid. The name Golden Knights was selected because it allowed you to stroke your Army itch. That bit about gold mining in Nevada and the Vegas skyline are all secondary bs.
