Well, if we are giving a nod to Boeing and its historical ties to Seattle, it could be the Seattle Bombers or something more specific like the Seattle B-17s or B-52s. The Seattle Supersonics were named for Boeings' SST concept aircraft. Of course there was also Pacific Car & Foundry that made railroad cars and Army tanks in WWII, not sure how you'd tie that in. As long as they don't name it for Starbucks and lattes I'm OK with it.

I think I do prefer the "Seattle Bombers". I like the old logo Image but an updated one would be fine also.

Maybe an updated version of this

That old emblem actually doesn't look too bad; overall, it's held up well. The newer one is pretty cool too. I was noticing the names of the other teams in the old APFL, most of them war related which is to be expected given the year - 1944. I also noticed that they were playing in the old baseball stadium Sick's; never knew the ever played football there. I can't help but wonder what the XFL has chosen for a name and I can't imagine that they have come up with anything that hasn't been proposed on this thread.
