  1. I have a fake/fantasy team with that exact name.
  2. think I enjoy your totems/sockeyes scheme the best. if sockeyes is indeed the name chosen, as reports appear to have it as the front runner. I'd love it if they used a model similar to those as their logo/uniforms. I also certainly hope they add a shade of green/dark teal to the rumoured red/black colour scheme. I dig that ochre red too.
  3. rangers. they have 'texas' on all jerseys. also, agreed, they should have a blue cap.
  4. other than the name...*sigh* these logos and colours are pretty solid. definitely might have to get me a hat, at the very least.
  5. I think sod dogs is definitely a great compromise between a unique but pretty terrible name in sod poodles and an infinitely better prairie dogs. they get to name them after the animal and have we have our own unique/original moniker to call our own. plus I bet most people probably would have just ended up calling them "soddies" or "dogs" or "sods" or other variations anyway.
  6. I live in amarillo too. I mostly just read the threads here though. if those ^ are indeed some of the logos I have to say I kind of like 'em. it's not as bad as it could have been I guess. colours are just about what I would have given them as well. hopefully the unis are nice.
  7. mlb: texas rangers and colorado rockies and to a lesser extent: houston astros and san diego padres (parent club of our AA club here in amarillo) nba: dallas mavericks and charlotte hornets nfl: carolina panthers and houston texans nhl: dallas stars, carolina hurricanes and colorado avalanche mls: houston dynamo and colorado rapids ncaa: (d-I) north carolina tar heels, new mexico lobos, texas tech red raiders, uc santa barbara gauchos. (d-II) west texas a&m buffaloes. milb: (AAA) albuquerque istotopes local: nahl: amarillo bulls texas league: amarillo tba (name has yet to be announced) reasons? I was born in north carolina, have lived most of my life in texas, have ties to new mexico and denver is close enough to where I live that a lot of people root for denver teams here. plus I've been to a few rox and avs games and have always more or less supported those teams since they began.
  8. zephyrs was an absolutely beautiful name. I did like a few of the options y'all had for the name change. "BC" definitely the worst. I'm from amarillo and while I'm excited for our new team arriving next year I cringe and at the possibility (and all likelihood) of them being called the "sod poodles". I, for one, have vowed to not ever refer to them as that if that's the name chosen.
  9. that's pretty much exactly what I wrote when I submitted it, in so many words.
  10. you know, I don't know. it happened pretty quickly before the season started. they might not have had time to change things. either of the names you just mentioned would have been cool though.
  11. I'm from amarillo and I personally submitted "windsox". we've had independent teams called "dillas" for several years, which was an incredibly popular name and was a big merch seller in town. I don't know, however, if there are legal/copyright reasons why that name can't be or wasn't chosen. and most recently we were just plain "sox" (because another team had the trademark on GOLD sox) for a few years before they changed it to "thunderheads" which is supposed to be another name for a thunderstorm cloud. that last name was originally pretty much universally hated here because they never asked our opinion about changing the name and we were so used to the history and tradition of the (gold) sox name but overtime it grew on us. I know personally I'd welcome back the name "thunderheads" with open arms. now these choices? these choices are crap. plain and simple. I signed a petition yesterday requesting/demanding more options when it had a little over 1,000 signatures and right now it has over 5,000. I know that minor league names are often unique and that they want to cater to kids AND adults and there are a lot of names out there that are pretty good (sans baby cakes...) and get the job done. these five do not.
