  1. My home state, Texas, I feel, has too mamy western themed team names. Sure, we're proud of our history, don't get me wrong, but Texas is a whole lot more than a bunch of cowboys and ranchers. Houston is the energy capital of the world, San Antonio has tons of military bases and the leading industries these days in Dallas is technology.
  2. Oklahoma City? How about the Spirit, Warriors, Tribe?(Oklahoma is home to more Native Americans than any state except California). Or their oil industry.
  3. What city is next? I remember San Francisco had the Dragons, Detroit had the Eights, Miami had the Blaze and Arizona had the Ghila Monsters . Are you planning to bring those back? Some name suggestions: Denver Altitude Nashville Beat Houston Galaxy Tampa Bay Hammerheads
  4. Dallas is really high tech, like its southern rival, Houston.
  5. Indianapolis and Charlotte, what are those two cities known for besides auto racing?
  6. Houston Heat. Because everyone knows how hot it gets here in the summer.
  7. Bobcats and Galaxy. I'd call my fictional team from Atlanta the Inferno because of the fire they had during the Civil War.
  8. Idea for Texas teams: San Antonio Brigade Austin Colony, as in a colony of bats El Paso Javelinas Are you doing teams for cities that don't have NFL franchises only? St. Louis Pioneers San Diego Captains Oklahoma City Wildcatters Memphis Kings
  9. NFL: Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys NHL: Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators (I am a country music fan, and as you know, Mike Fisher is married to one of my favorite singers, Carrie Underwood) NBA: Houston Rockets MLB: Houston Astros
  10. Cincinnati had an old soccer team called the River Hawks.
  11. Dallas has enough Western themed teams as it is. I lived there in the 90s and to tell the truth, Fort Worth is more western oriented than Big D. San Antonio could be the Brigade or something military themed due to the many military bases there. I agree with you on Boston and Philly and their historical roles. St. Louis could be the Clydesdales, as it is the home of Anheiser-Busch breweries. Orlando could be the Thrill, but I don't know how you could make a logo for that name, which is a nod to its many theme parks.
  12. Well, if you're going to do any teams in Texas, please try to steer clear of Western themed names. We've got plenty of those already. What cities do you plan to do? I can help you think of names.
  13. I think Albany could change its name to Demons, Scranton/WB could have been called the Emperors (as in emperor penguin), Texas could have been the Lumanaries. Iowa could have been the Farmhands, but I don't know about Binghamton.
  14. That's cool! That jersey would work for the name Apollos too, and as we all know, "Houston" was the first word spoken from the moon. I went to Johnson Space Center a couple of weeks ago, and although the space shuttle no longer is in use, they still train astronauts there and communicate with them on the International Space Station. Meanwhile, I wish hockey would make a comeback to the Bayou City because when I was a kid, I'd go see the Aeros play at the Compaq Center often. Houston is also known as the energy capital of the world, so you could have also used an energy-related team (Fusion, Force, etc), but I dig what you did
  15. Yeah, I don't get why the AHL teams can't come up with their own names. MSO4, can you imagine a conversation like this? Hockey fan 1: "How about those Stars! They kicked butt last night." Hockey fan 2: "No, San Jose hammered us 2-1" Hockey fan 1: "Your Stars may have lost, but our Stars won. The Texas Stars! When you're a farm team like that, is it too much money to have a name-the-team contest?
  16. Great work. Never expected the name Highlanders for a team from Ottawa. Can't wait to see what you do for Saskatoon and Quebec City. Also, I read somewhere that you may do a lower-tier dodgeball league in the future. Is this true?
  17. I think Matadors is one of the names I suggested for you for Mexico City. You did a great job with the logo.
  18. Those are nice uniforms for Helsinki and Lisbon. Do you plan to update the Flickr page soon, Windell?
  19. Windell, hope you had a nice vacation. Looking forward to Vienna and the jerseys for Iceland, Quezon City, Milwaukee, Nashville and Portland.
  20. Whatever city is coming next, I'm looking forward to seeing it. This has been an amazing thread, Windell.
