Re: Los Angeles Team Names

I think Quakes is fine. We've got a pro team and a college team named the Hurricanes. We have the Iowa State Cyclones. Powerful natural phenomena are great ideas. When was the last devastating quake in LA? You get more twisters and hurricanes in the mid west and east coast than you do powerful quak...

Re: Latest XFL Head Coaching Clues Provided By Oliver Luck

Without this thread I had thought of Haslett as an option. The name has familiarity in STL as he was an interim here for a minute. He also took a Head Coach role on one of these spring leagues like a decade ago. I forgot the name. So that experience is there too. Please lord don't tell me STL XFL is...

Re: Washington Team Names

I kinda want the XFL to screw with the NFL and go with Warriors. Given the name controversy with the Redskins, I've always thought if they finally dropped it like the Bullets the best transition would be to Warriors. Keep the uniforms and colors. Just change out the logo with a stylized W with a lea...

Re: XFL New York: 5 names that would be awesome for the upcoming team

Personally, I think the XFL shouldn't entirely shun its brief history. The fact that the name can come back is because there is some recognition to it - the unique nature of the League. My advice would be to strip away the dated and the stuff that didn't work but keep some notes so that it retains ...

Re: Top Coaching Candidates

What is Lovie Smith doing these days? In the AAF they've gotten older out of football coaches with experience. Martz with the San Diego team makes sense and should be interesting. Lovie was D coordinator under Martz with the Rams in Super Bowl 36. Of course he took the Bears to a Super Bowl too. See...

Re: Team Name and Logo/Colors

I've been thinking about branding a lot for the team. My fear is that the team is going to be "generic modern". Awful Division II style uniforms like the other League starting up this week end. And some bland name like Rock Cats or River Otters. Clydesdales is a superb name. Easy to slide into 'Dal...

Re: Houston Oiler Type Team Names

I like the idea. Wildcatters is great and unique. Doesn't roll well off the tongue. I like Drillers too. Lean into it without being too on the nose. Instead of a Derrick as a logo, maybe a drop of oil. Do a little what the Titans did with playing around the old colors. Go navy blue as a main but wi...

Re: Dallas Team Names

I mean, its near impossible to do something in Dallas and not have it be western themed in some sense. It's such a big part of the identity. It's different than say Houston that has something unique like NASA to draw from. A lot of names are out there that are great, like Stampede. I'm a fan of tha...
