    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.

    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.

    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.

    Montgomery Biscuits
    New Orleans Baby Cakes
    Hartford Yard Goats
    Bakersfield Train Robbers
    Albuquerque Isotopes
    Binghamton Rumble Ponies
    Akron Rubber Ducks
    Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp
    Richmond Flying Squirrels
    Columbia Fireflys
    Hickory Crawdads
    Traverse City Beach Bums
    Winnipeg Goldeyes
    Brevard Manatees
    Vermont Lake Monsters
    Savannah Sand Gnats
    etc.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    And this was proven how/when? Looking for factual evidence here, not fabricated talking points.
