  1. 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.
  2. Rebranding the Braves?

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

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

    Kronke won't. Only ones I might see voting against it are the Rooneys, McCaskey and Mara.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Dallas Mavericks Unused Concept

    I really like that second one
  8. Unpopular Opinions

    These were the best Hawks jerseys by far
  9. 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.
  10. Unpopular Opinions

    I don't know if this is unpopular persay, but I really want to see the Raptors ditch the claw ball logo and bring back the dinosaur
  11. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    And Jets was a name that almost everyone in Winnipeg wanted. This is a name most in Las Vegas DIDN'T.
  12. Las Vegas NHL Expansion

    As a Nevada native who spent most of my formative years in Las Vegas, I have spent most of those years hoping for the city to get a major league sports franchise of our own, and the last handful of months arguing the merits of the city getting an NHL team over the hordes of "should have gone to Canada or Seattle instead." Yet tonight, which for many of us who waited a long time for this moment, we get treated to an absolute embarrassment of a presentation, a moniker a large number of us didn't want AND get our city name shortened because, God forbid, Bill Foley's erection for West Point doesn't get stroked... proper city naming be damned. I could eventually stomach the Golden Knights moniker. I also really like the logo and colors. However, the Vegas part? Nope. But hey.. get your merchandise and season tickets now! Oh well. The Raiders are coming soon. At least Mark Davis will have enough respect for the city he will be calling home to name it by its proper billing.
