Fan Suggestion:
XFL Team Names

Remember the XFL Team Name Survey?
Back in August 2000 we asked the visitors to this site to come up with name suggestions for the yet to be announced XFL teams. This page is an archive of what they came up with. :)
Remember the speculative furour over the team names?
Click here to read about how it all went down.

We have compiled the results of our survey. Results for each team are shown below. Some points to note:

1. A total of 579 unique entries were made. All entries included in our analysis of the survey were from unique sources.

2. Responses which gained 3% of the total submissions and greater are shown on the left of each table. The top suggestion is shown in red. Some other suggestions, labeled "The Best of the Rest", are shown on the right.

3. The entries marked as "Fumble?" are some of your suggestions that were chosen by XFLBoard.com Admin as being silly, idiotic or just plain dumb. :^)

4. The top name suggested by 29% of all submissions was Las Vegas Gamblers.

5. Please note: XFLBoard.com has forwarded this page to the XFL Head Office. We don't claim that they will use this information, but we'd like to let you know that this step has been taken care of.
