Well, I guess we are the "Herd".  No logos yet.  There's no way there weren't better choices than this.

I guess the wishes of the fanbase weren't....."heard"?

 

Anyways, the name is, unimpressive.  it ties into the Bucks but it just doesn't have that much going for it.  Hustle at least invokes some sort of movement and speed.  Herd is...a bunch of deer standing around munching grass.  I'd love to know what was tossed aside for this

I'm actually searching for some kind of list of finalists or other options.

There probably were better choices but I don't hate the name since a group of deer is a 'herd' and it ties in with the Bucks that way. At the very least, it's better than Raptors 905 or Oklahoma City Blue.

I can imagine the announcers saying something like, "This player was just brought up from the Herd yesterday" or "He was just sent down to the Herd", which has a nice ring to it.

 

Wisconsin already has the Pack. the Crew, and now the Herd.

I always forget about the Oklahoma City Blue....

I don't think the Magic have been posted in this thread yet, so in case anyone missed that:

It's ok. But, as I was saying in the specific thread for them...

Ugh. Really? Lakeland Magic? 3,000 name suggestions and that is what you came up with? 

 

I submitted Lakeland Spellcasters - Spell for Magic, Casters for "casting" a fishing rod (Lakeland is big on fishing). It's not Nike-speak when it's the truth.

I still stand by that my name should have won, especially when I look at what eventually won. Also, in the contest rules, they said that it should be tied to the Magic, but also have a local identity for Lakeland. I think that they were already set on Magic before they even started the contest, and started the "contest" for publicity.

 

I hate the Magic's FO.

Doesn't Lakeland's official logo have the sponsor in it? I don't see the version you posted anywhere on their website.

^ yeah, it does sadly. brutal.

Even the Aqua Caliente Clippers, who are named after a casino, don't have another brand's logo within their logo.

If you take logo and re color it red, white and Blue. It would look like a logo for the Harlem Globetrotters

Looking at the logo page on the mothership I noticed there is a lack of green as the primary color in this league. That's a shame. Counting on the Herd to change this I guess.

What an ugly look, forcing the sponsor in there. I was mad when the San Jose Barracuda did that, but at least the cuda did it in the best way possible.

I personally prefer for minor league teams to have their own names/identity separate from the main club. I understand why many clubs do it though. As far as the Wisconsin Herd goes if it were my decision to come up with a name related to the Bucks' deer theme, I might have gone with Wisconsin Stags. I know Bucks and Stags aren't exactly the same thing, but I think Stags sounds a lot cooler than Herd *shrugs*

Agreed. I always hate when minor league teams just use the parent team's name. Either come up with something original like Memphis Hustle or something related, but not the same like Wisconsin Herd. But just using Magic when your parent team is the Magic as well is just a real bummer. This really makes me feel a lot better about the Memphis Hustle in general, despite the lame Grizzly silhouette logo.
