    Atlantic Schooners Announced as Name of New CFL Team

    For those not liking Atlantic as the team's location moniker, the Adirondack Red Wings, Ice Hawks, Frostbite, Phantoms, Thunder would like a word, as would the Empire State Cobras and Capital District Islanders. It was going to be Atlantic or Maritimes.

    Now we wait until next season, to see if the rules package NO ONE really wants will actually work!

    What is the rarest color in sports?

    In 1978, the Caribous of Colorado had the official colors of brown, black, and beige. It worked, though the team was terrible and they had leather fringe on their jerseys. Leather. Fringe.

    Niece and her husband (a high school teammate of Clint Dempsey) tell me that Austin FC is trying to get the suburban family and Latinx community energized, unlike Dallas and Houston. They feel, though, the USL team out at COTA is a better option!
  7. A "tribute" is the new word for "We'd like to be something First Nation/Indigenous but if we do show an actual 'Indian' we wouldn't sell crap for merchandise."

    Memphis 901 FC Announces Name, Unveils Logos Ahead of First Season

    The NBA Grizzlies were in Memphis in the 1970s, WFL team were called Grizzlies, more than the official Southmen. Memphis soccer had the BEST nickname to logo synergy in the sport's US history. Why couldn't they update this?

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    IIRC, Paris and Milan were to have teams, Barcelona was a quick last-minute addition, as was Frankfurt, replacing the Memphis Galaxy because Fred Smith thought it would harm his NFL expansion chances.

    He needs to be permanently separated from NASCAR. This isn't the first instance of him embarrassing the sport, and it's far worse for him to be arrested for DWI/DUI and with oxy in the car than a driver being caught through drug testing.

    Driveball Redux (1958 Offseason)

    The area in and surrounding Albany was called Beverwyck/Beverwijck or "Place of Beavers." The nickname could be based on that, like Beavers or Trappers.

    ESPN+ has many USL games on it. (I'm still too cheap to get it LOL) I do love the idea of DII games being aired.

    The song we're talking about. The naming of Athletic means they didn't think about defunct soccer clubs based in Hartford and the rest of Connecticut: Wildcats, Yankees, Bicentennials, Wolves, and the best of all Hellions. The only place where the name Whalers should be attached to a soccer club should be in New Bedford.
