Toledo Walleye and Toledo Woodpeckers?

Ownership/management of the Toledo Mud Hens has apparently been busy lining-up identities for teams that it hopes to operate in Lucas County, Ohio's new arena.

The Mud Hens have sought trademark protection for the Toledo Walleye name in anticipation of it being used by an ice hockey team. The Mud Hens have also secured the rights to the domain www.toledo-walleye.com for use as a website address. Just prior to the demolition of the old Toledo Sports Arena, the Mud Hens created a not-for-profit organization which acquired the rights to the Toledo Storm of the ECHL.

Additionally, the Mud Hens have registered filings with the USPTO seeking trademark protection for the names Toledo Woodpeckers, Toledo Peckers and Toledo Peckerheads. In each case, it is expected that the name would be used by an arena/indoor football team.

Mud Hens general manager Joe Napoli has told the Toledo Blade that the names are on a "short list" of identities under consideration for ice hockey and arena football franchises. He also stated that they have "... the intentions of registering other names as well." Reportedly, the Mud Hens have also held discussions with NBA officials regarding the possibility of securing a National Basketball Development League team to play in the new arena.

Hmm...can't say I like those indoor/arena names....I'm going to have to check with a couple people to see if they are af2 or another league (likely CIFL or AIFA).

Didn't we go through the whole "Walleye" thing with Cleveland/Lake Erie just a few months ago? It doesn't sound any better this time around.

And "Peckerheads"?!? Are you f-ing kidding me? Sounds like great family entertainment.
