Going to be called the Warriors..
Nice stays along the lines of the Redskins..
I wish they would have gotten weird with it. The Flying Walrus' or The Narwhals or The Honey Badgers. Something different.
Fun Fact: The Toronto Raptors had a submission that gained steam to call the team the John Candies when they were becoming an expansion franchise. That would have kicked so much ass...
That movie OWNS. I hope they start doing that. I think they already do for the Golden State Warriors.
I’m sure many will find something wrong with that name as well.
That would have been awesome. At least they went with the Raptors. Warriors, Huskies, Bulldogs, etc are so incredibly overused. There are so many creative and cool mascot names out there and schools (mainly new high schools) go with the most bland names possible.
Say what you will about Benson, but the Bunnies are at least different. Maybe my desire for a variety of team names comes from being a Husker fan and growing up a Gretna Dragon. But damn I just wish new mascot names would be something fun and new.
How about this one? The world champion Kansas City Murder Hornets.
Murder Hornets is an amazing name and every new high school being built should consider it.
Maybe I'm just set in my ways. I don't like change. However with everything that is going on, I understand that a lot of things that were "acceptable" aren't anymore.
So on that note, warriors makes a lot of sense and it seems like a natural change. What would their mascot be and logo be?
Arapahoe High School in Colorado worked with the Arapahoe tribe to work on images, mascots, cheers, logo, etc., so the school could keep the nickname. Working with an East Coast on similar imagery might work, or they could go with military iconography.
Our current culture doesnt allow for interesting names. Therefore we get a bunch of animals and warrior type names (knights spartans trojans etc.)
Agree, Bunnies are legit, especially that yoked, drug-addled, cap-wearing no-pants badass cartoon version. The one that never made sense to me is Skutt Skyhawks, as opposed to ground hawks? Yeah these are the Omaha Bryan Land Bears. Just seems lazy, like they needed a mascot that started with an "S". Roncalli Crimson Pride is awesome, nothing beats a griffin.
I still think Ord has the coolest mascot. What could sell more merch than a fighting chicken?
Pretty soon crusaders are gonna be too problematic
Now the loonies who turn over every rock looking for something to be outraged about will turn their attention elsewhere. What, or who's 's next I wonder.....
Minor League Baseball is definitely leading the charge when it comes to unique team names/mascots. A bunch of these teams sell merch to "fans" that will probably never watch a single game.
New Orleans Baby Cakes
Hartford Yard Goats
Bakersfield Train Robbers
Binghamton Rumble Ponies
Akron Rubber Ducks
Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp
Richmond Flying Squirrels
Traverse City Beach Bums
Vermont Lake Monsters
Savannah Sand Gnats
Ord HS also got a mention on the College World Series the year Coastal Carolina won it, since they are the only two schools with that mascot.
How about the Wankers?
Maybe, but at least it's not a racial slur.
They already have a mascot.
The NBA mascot swap I want to see is Memphis and Sacramento.
Yeah I know there are no more grizzlies in California, but there's one on the state flag. And how can Memphis not be the Kings?
Dolphins should change their name to the Miami Butthole Surfers...
I'll go a long ways with you, but c'mon... Redskins is pretty blatantly racist.
I read that he came up with that using/doing that for the movie...because of some bully that used to do it to him when he was a kid.
Yeah...but New York is named after a dude that made his fortune in the slave trade...time to change that states name! How about...Northeast Nebraska!
How long before the chiefs have to change names ?
Then why didn't it bother most Native Americans?
Isn't the uproar over the Redskins name because it is a derogatory term for an American Indian?
Is calling someone a Chief derogatory? It is short for Chieftain isn't it?
Millard South changed their name from Indians to Patriots. What was derogatoey about Indians?
I wonder if you can get "Lying dog faced pony soldiers" on a jersey? Has a nice ring to it I think.
Iam willing to patent and copyright “Fat, Lazy Honkies” and promise my friends won’t be offended and won’t sue if a team were to use it.
I heard a good name yesterday on the radio, Washington Snyders
Take it from a California native who was living the good life in the Golden State until years ago my father's company uprooted us to the prairies of Nebraska at one time there were grizzlies in every county in the state.
More recently than in Tennessee, that's for sure!
Make it happen, NBA.
Nah, the swap should be Utah and New Orleans. The Jazz definitely belongs in New Orleans.
Agreed, but Utah and Pelicans doesn't work either. The Utah Bees, possibly.
That one should happen too. Don't know if there are any Pelicans in Utah, though we get some in Colorado this time of year. Got a great photo of some last weekend.
Maybe Utah could revive the Stars name from the old ABA days.
Utah could be whatever, but no mascot is a perfect as the New Orleans Jazz....
And this was proven how/when? Looking for factual evidence here, not fabricated talking points.
