OKC Wranglers

Check this out...

"On October 25, 2007 it was leaked from an inside source that the Seattle Supersonics will in fact move to Oklahoma City in the year 2009. They will play in the Ford Center and will become the Wranglers."

how much truth is there to this?

i mean by now its obvious they're moving, but am I really gonna be hating the OKC Wranglers?

Umm, rumors are not very reliable, or we'd be seeing the San Antonio Saints right now.

Remember your source. The only time you should use Wikipedia is either when you are in the process of firing someone or resolving conflict in an office setting., other than that and everything is a rumor.

Am I the only one who is getting really sick of the stereotypical naming of mid western and south western teams?

Does EVERY team from that area have to adpot a nickname referring to Cowboys or some sort of "Old Western" theme? I mean c'mon, why can't they be the Oklahoma City Sonics? or Thunder or whatever. Why relegate them to simply "Western" names? It gets so old after a while hearing the same overdone names over and over and over again. Can't we get more original? How many teams in the history of sport have been named the "Wranglers"? Have we run out of relevant and somewhat interesting names?

Geez...hate to rant, but c'mon lets give people in that area some credit. Its not like EVERY person in OKC has a barn with cows and expansive fields where they mount horses all day "wranglin" all of their animals till the wife hits the dinner bell and the 'boys' come back home after a long day. Its like people around the country think that area is a never ending Western or a Marlboro ad. I understand the history is there, but its not like EVERY team from the Boston area (for example) is named after something related to the Revolutionary war .

okay...maybe two of them are, but not ALL! ^_^

Wikipedia needs to remove that crap about the listing of the Ford Center being their current arena starting in 2008. This case is tangled up in courts and the team could very well be here in Seattle until at least 2010 and beyond.

Is that honestly in the franchise's best interest though? You might as well make the break clean.

AMEN!

There is a difference between giving a nod to history and feeding stereotypes, and I think the quantity of these names just feed the stereotypes- which are mostly outdated. There are plenty of ranches out there, but one should think of the southwest as more diverse than that.

There are plenty more industries and noteriety Oklahoma is known for, so settling on Wranglers would not be necessary. Sonics has a Seattle reference to the air industry, but it could work in OKC.

I went to the University of Texas, which is in a largeĀ® city just about downtown. I had someone in Chicago if my campus was rural. 1. She was being an idiot and 2. Stereotypes persist, so why feed them.

There was an Arena Football League team called the Oklahoma Wranglers. This person just added "City".

Sodboy beat you to that. In the 3rd post.
