Name-the-team contest in MKE down to final 10:

  • Crop Dusters
  • Cheesers
  • Farmhands
  • Haymakers
  • Broilers
  • Barn Owls
  • Cow Tippers
  • Bovines
  • Milk Men
  • War Pigs

Milk Men was actually the name I submitted...because of all the logo, mascot, uniform and promo possibilities.

 

 

I actually really like the War Pigs.

Good god, this is legit?  I can't honestly think of a better microcosm for the difference in mentality between Chicago's suburbs and Milwaukee's suburbs than the American Association.

The team from Rosemont, IL is shoehorning the civic flag of another municipality into every single aspect of their identity.  Then you have the team that will be playing in Wisconsin's most populated county adopting an identity that suggests they play in the middle of nowhere.

I was hoping that with this being the American Association and all, we might get an identity that hearkens back to Milwaukee's history with the original AA.  Instead we seem primed to get a team named after a fart joke.

I fear some of the ideas they'd come up with on this one.

Haymakers or Barn Owls or force the team to play in Zion until they fold for picking such a godawful name.

War Pigs, Barn Owls, and Haymakers are definitely the "least bad" of this bag of turds.  Broilers and Bovines could maybe work too depending on where they go with it.

But this is southern Milwaukee County, so lets not fool ourselves into thinking anything but Crop Dusters is gonna win.  Have you ever been around Polish people?  This is the land of John Matuszak and The Crusher.

War Pigs could be a good military style logo.  

 

Which is a very good reason to vote for another name.  Any other name.

I love "Barn Owls", but could easily see something good coming of "Haymakers" or "Milk Men", 

 

"Broilers", I presume, refers more to the art of grilling than the chicken intended to be cooked upon it?  There's some decent food-related possibilities there.

 

But c'mon.  A Milwaukee-area minor-league team that doesn't use "Bubblers"?  Major missed opportunity.  :P

When, not if, War Pigs is chosen, I hope they use this when they introduce the starting lineup:

I don't know how War Pigs even made the list...the league already has a team called the Texas AirHogs, and any War Pigs concept would look FAR too similar to that.

Then again, the AA also has both the Chicago Dogs and the Lincoln Saltdogs...

Personally, I like Barn Owls, partially because of the aforementioned "AirHogs vs War Pigs" similarity, and partially because I feel that Barn Owls just sounds better to me. War Pigs has the minor-league ridiculousness, but Barn Owls has some more charm.

There's also the Iron Pigs.  That was my first thought.

I just picture a pig dressed as an army sergeant.  Or a pig flying a fighter jet! :lol:

The Chicago Dogs, as part of their "Wiener Wednesdays" promotion, will wear alternate "WIENERS" uniforms.

People of Franklin, do not name your team after a walking fart.

That would be the equivalent of so many celebratory uses of "Born in the USA", in that it would represent an ignoring of what the song actually says.

 

"War Pigs", like "Born in the USA", is an anti-war song.  Where "Born in the USA" is a lament over the toll that war takes on the people who are forced to fight in it, "War Pigs" expresses condemnation of the military leaders who are responsible for mass-scale carnage.
 

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
