Elite Pro Football League (EPFL)

Recommended Posts

I'm creating an American football league that sorta parallels the NFL (2 conferences, 8 divisions, 32 teams), but has completely different locations. I currently have the names for most of them, but I need help coming up the other teams. When that's complete I'll start posting the logos, uniforms and such, which will be done in paint, since I'm no good at photoshop type art, but will still look good. Like high quality pixel art.

Here are the teams. Teams with question marks are the ones I need help with:

EC North:

Columbus ???

Grand Rapids Snappers

Louisville ???

Milwaukee ???

EC South:

Birmingham ???

Charlotte Chaos

Columbia Chemeleons

Mississippi ???

EC East:

Brooklyn Lawmen

Manhattan Mafia

New Jersey ???

Providence Celestials

EC West:

Austin Armadillos

Boise

Portland Piranhas

Tulsa Vultures

PC North:

Kansas Scarecrows

Iowa Twisters

Omaha Herd

Toronto Hunters

PC South:

Arkansas ???

Nashville Riders

Orlando ???

Tallahassee ???

PC East:

Boston Revolutionaries

Dover Doves

Richmond Troopers

West Virginia ???

PC West:

Albuquerque Visitors

El Paso Spirits

Hawaii Volcanoes

Los Angeles Olympians

If you want to suggest changes to decided teams, I'm open. As long as it's reasonable.

Charlotte, New Jersey, and Nashville already have teams, just in case you didn't know, since you said you have completely different locations from NFL teams.

I didn't mean locations in the literal sense. I just didn't want any "first name" repeats like Carolina, New York, or Tennessee.

As for Mississippi, I like the river theme. One I'm having a hard time with is Boston. I don't want anything generic sounding.

Not sure I like the Foxes name for Milwaukee... it has a lot of cache as the identity of the Appleton/Fox Cities Foxes of the Midwest League and is still very tied into that region in Wisconsin.

Blitz, Barons, Gulls, Herons, Breakers, Outlaws, and Riders are all great names for a team from Milwaukee for varying reasons.

Dawg is other word for Dog. Unless you rather Riverdogs?

I was being sarcastic. I don't really care for names like that.

What's the reasoning behind some of the cities? Do they have a history?? It just seems weird that you'd dip into a place like Clemson to host a team.

There's only so many places you can choose not already taken by the NFL before you have to start reaching. Also, it seems weird that the NFL would dip into a place like Green Bay to host a team, doesn't matter though. Some teams are bigger than their cities.

How about the Boston Revolutions, to represent its role in the revolutionary war.

Or maybe I'll take it one step further and go with Boston Revolutionaries since that actually represents people as opposed to Revolutions which represents an act.

Riders is already taken by my Nashville team, and I have a really cool concept for them. The logo will explain everything if I can bring the image I have in my head to life.

As for the Foxes name, I guess I can change it to one of your suggestions, but I'm not a fan of names like Blitz/Barons/Outlaws because they seem like names you'd find in many other sports teams and that's one thing I really tried to steer away from with this league. You're going to gave to explain to me the relevance of the other names, because my knowledge of Wisconsin consists of cheese and forrest animals.

Why not just Boston Revolution?

Just a notification for anyone who suggests names: Try to avoid using names that you've already seen used on other sports teams. I'm aiming for unique names. Not necessarily out-there names like Browns, 76ers, Red Sox or Riverdawgs, but common people/animals/things that you don't see commonly used on sports teams that also preferably have significance to the location and sound catchy. Think: New Orleans Saints, Dallas Mavericks, Arizona Diamondbacks, etc.
