  1. FYI- of all NFL teams: the categories and number of teams nicknames listed are: People -12 Big Cats- 4 Birds- 5 Animals- 5 Aircraft- 1 Misc- 4: Bills - animal ? Browns Chargers - animal ? Giants- People? And of course Washington is unlisted but would be classified as People.
  2. Face it... Go ahead and try to think of a specific/logical/ reasonable team name. Because whatever name the team decides, someone or some people are going to critize or hate it. You cant please everyone.
  3. Wolves is generic, but think about it, how teams in the NFL have nicknames associated to dogs/wolves? The Browns unoffically because of the "Dawg Pound" but that's about it. I'd go with Wolves instead of Red Wolves. Here's another name that has popped up and has been suggested: Renegades- yes it's usually aimed towards Native Americans, but it can also represent outlaws and rebels too.
  4. My suggestions: Red Tails Sentinels Razorbacks - better/ meaner than Pigskins; pays hommage to the Hogs ( nickame of the offensive line in the 1980s),
  5. I.thought about that, has a nice ring to it. I mean they already have the Wizards...
  6. I disagree, while 4 stars actually represents the title of General, the ranking of a 5 star is "General Of The Army" and that covers the Army, Air Force and Marines, sans the Navy which is totally different but still has 5 stars and shoulder stripes, its equal is known as "The Admiral Of The Navy".
  7. Yes its basic, but in design less is more...
  8. I disagree.What do mean more developed? How more developed do you need? The logo has spot on detail of what the five star general would wear on his military uniform. The shade of both colors are exact. And I didn't even serve in the military and still see, let alone know this.
  9. Personally I'm split between Sentinels or Redtails. I understand how the name Hogs is popular because the offensive line nickname back in the 80s, but not really feeling that name or the Pigskins as well. Maybe Warthogs, but they had an arena football team awhile back that didn't fair so well, so I don't know how that would go.
  10. The turf at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia was notorious for the seam ripping apart!
  11. And thats the difference between baseball and football. Baseball players want this nice grass, pristine baseball field. And football players could care less if it's grass or turf as long as they have a field to play on, with the exception is it's rough sport and concussions are part of the game, and everyone is trying to make it safer, it has been an ongoing issue and synthetic turf isn't helping.
  12. The thing that is so irritating and pathetic is that the bar is set so high because no one is truely satisified. The city has to have a population of 1 million plus, the stadium has to cost billion dollars. Because not only does the owner expect the public or government to fund the stadium because he she is so cheap; they expect the people to pay outrageous ticket prices for not only a seat but for a suites as well at the Super Bowl, also lets hike the prices on concessions (drinks, food and merchandise). When will it end? IT WONT why?? Because everyone from the owner down to fan has the mentality of a teenager with their first paycheck, rather than save their money, they go waste it. Then they complain they have no money. It's ridiculous. But hey it CAPITIALISM at its best!
  13. Ok then extend that over 10-15yrs, whatever length, see what I'm saying?
  14. Red McCombs, owned the Minnesota Vikings back in the late 90s/ early 2000s, went to then Governor Jesse Ventura, and asked for the State to help build him a new stadium. Jesse said no, his suggestion? You have a 60,000 seat stadium, you sell out all 8 home games and raise your tickets prices by $12. In about 5-8 yrs, you'll have the money to build yourself a new stadium. There's probably one owner who did that, I think his last name is Jones and he has a team in Dallas???
