FIRE vs. WATER

 

In the lead-up to the 1983 inaugural season, sports TV pioneer Eddie Einhorn buys the rights to the name Chicago Fire, formerly used by the short-lived WFL franchise. With the 1982 NFL season cut short by the strike, the Fire hope to attract more than a few disgruntled Bear fans.

Another of the real-life teams joining this series will be the Boston Breakers.

My take on some of the names:

New Jersey -> both Generals and Knights are pretty generic so they both could be used here, I would choose the one that gives you the better graphic identity in your mind

Philadelphia -> Bell Ringers is a good idea but the name it's too long for me, Spirit (singular) would be meaningful, represnting the american spirit

Washington  -> here I really like the name Sentinels, it evokes the martial theme yet can also stand for the idea of the wardens of democracy and freedom

Birmingham -> Forge is clearly the more fitting with the city's history, but also flames would do (although it is a little bit more generic)

I like the Action name and would love an 80's color scheme!

You should go with purple/yellow/red/blue like your RHL version of the Action and change Oakland to something else

 

What would you suggest for a better color scheme for the Condors?
