I got a good one: L.A. RIOT!  It's outdated but it's different and confrontational.  The L.A. Galaxy fan base is called the Riot Squad, but whatever.

Oh, you would have loved Vince's original idea to name the Birmingham Thunderbolts the "Blast," then.

 

Your next smart post on here will be your first. Maybe stop and just read for a couple months here.

Given the XFL's stated purpose to only imply Honest Americans(TM), it would make sense all the names are simplistic and dignified. Boring, generic, but non-offensive seems to be what they'll want to latch onto.

I think a case could be made for picking "boring" traditional names as long as they are not NFL names.  Bring in a nostalgic, olde-tyme football vibe with...

 

Dallas Mustangs

Houston Outlaws

Tampa Bay Sharks

Seattle Wildcats

Los Angeles Dragons

New York Knights

Washington Warriors

St. Louis Skyhawks

 

Boring, non-controversial, "classic" and yes, boring.  

 

I don't think the XFL will go there.  I think they will want names that are "new", "fresh" or wost of all "kewl".  

 

Hopefully he does not stoop to the degree of having the Seattle Forest Sharks or Washington River Lions or any other minor league baseball BS.   I also hope he doesn't go full MAGA with hyper-patriotic names.

But given how much emphasis was on the XFL only employing "clean" football players and having "simple" rules, it seems this is exactly what the team names should reflect. Something like "Outlaws" and other names that are "fresh and kewl" would seem to be against the whole purpose of this league.

 

Or it could be Vince was just riding a trend and doesn't actually intend to follow through on any of his promises.

That has seemed to change.  One of the tryouts had former TCU WR Ka'vonte Turpin, who was arrested for assault of a family member.  He was at the St. Louis tryout this weekend.  The Dallas tryout had Trayvon Boykin.

Oh, so Vince was just riding that "'Murica" wave. Got it.

In the business where McMahon makes his money, they call it a "swerve."

Maybe point out my mistake without being insulting.  Not everyone can be as smart as you.

I dunno - there are a lot of Americans who manage to thump their chests proclaiming their patriotism while at the same time lionizing armed insurrection against the United States and the killing of American soldiers.  Go figure.

Which would be totally on-brand for both McMahon and the whole ‘Murica! industry. :D

I think XFL came out with that strategy at the outset when it was competing with a rival spring league. Now that the AAF is dead, I doesn't really need a gimmick to set itself apart.

But now all the true blue patriots that were going to watch a real league with real Americans playing real football will feel betrayed.

Isn't that what the NFL is for?
