Hardly a challenger to the ABA. Most of the logos are perfectly acceptable for a minor league and a majority of the teams have plural names. Yeah, the Arkansas Impact logo is no great shakes, but it's not ABA bad. It's pre-1990s NBA bad.

So the ABA still reigns supreme as the lord of the ugly.

Can congress initiate a law banning the use of the word 'Dawg' in a team name and logo?

Haven't we moved passed that moniker? Everytime I see and or hear that word I think of either a totally uncultured overly white sounding white guy or Randy Jackson (not much of a difference in my book)

Lets end this insanity now.

Seriously. There's got to be some rulebook for minor leagues that requires at least one team named "Dawgs." Also, at least 1/2 the teams in the league must have some sort of non-sensical compound name -- River Hawks, Sea Dawgs, Nighthawks, etc.

On the the upside, the Fury logo is pretty decent, in a PHX/MIA derivative way. If you watch the league's homepage long enough, you'll see a pic of Gheorghe Muresan herding a flock of gradeskoolers. Good fun.

jdub -- yes, there's a big Mexican immigrant population in CHI. And the UW Huskies still suck.

Wow Eric, can you at least remember this at least

20-17? Fork em Devils

Seriously though, great logos for the Railers, Fury and Defenders, the rest of them are meh. Better than the ABA by far. But I will agree with Eric though, the Fury looks like the Suns and Heat had a child

Interesting as well to note that at least three of those teams are former ABA squads...Rochester, Maryland and Quad Cities...

According to this morning's Baltimore Sun, all of the teams are former ABA teams.

Well, with more franchises, current and past, isn't EVERY city in North America a former ABA team?

Chicago Aztecas? Is there some large Native American/Hisapanic population in Chicago I wasn't aware of?

Maybe I need to do a little more research, but I thought that futebol and beisbol were more popular within the hispanic community than basketball....waaaaaaay more popular. It seems a bit weird to me that the team is trying to capitalize on that specific market.

Rochester, Wilmington, Maryland, Jacksonville and Quad Cities are all former ABA teams

Rockford was the Saulk Valley Rollers and originally the Hammond Rollers last season in the ABA and changed their name to the Rock River Fury before joining the PBL and becoming Rockford.

Reading was originally going to join the ABA this season

Dallas, Chicago and Arkansas are all expansion teams that had nothing to do with the ABA

The Aztecas are playing in the near-western suburb of Cicero, which has become predominantly Hispanic over the past couple of decades. So the name fits well. But I doubt they'll draw anyway.

Interesting. I thought Rochester was one of the few ABA teams that actually drew.

They were.

They finally grew fed up with ownership shenanigans/lost in an attempted coup d'etat and left the ABA.

I believe that the 2000 U.S. Census pegged Chicago's Hispanic/Latino population as comprising more than a quarter (something like 26 or 27%, if I remember correctly) of the city's total population, with most of those respondents identifying themselves as being of Mexican descent. In fact, Chicago's substantial Mexican-American population was the reason that Jose Vergara considered the city as a potential host when he was selecting a home market for Major League Soccer's Club Deportivo Chivas USA.

Interesting. I had no idea.

As for the Huskies....that's not exactly a news flash. They've sucked for quite some time. :D
