Worst Sports Team Namesbooklover1
The Top Ten
Why is this number 1? How is Angels a bad name. You seriously think it's worse than Redskins, Indians, or Jazz (no jazz in Utah). - Smash64
This is just lame. - JoeBoi
"Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim", when anglicized, becomes "The Angels Angels of Anaheim". Their rival teams should be "San Francisco Saint Francis of Daly City", "San Jose Saint Joseph of Sunnyvale", and "San Diego Saint James of Chula Vista".
Just simply call them the Anaheim Angels. Anaheim is not LA, people!V 4 Comments
So they chose to be idiots and name this after the state they play in? Come on, why don’t you be like the Houston Oilers 2.0 or something? - JoeBoi
If they're in Houston they're obviously texans. become the Houston lassos or something!
Why didn't they come up with a better name like the Rockets or ANYTHING other then the Texans. Its just lazy.
There is already a Houston pro sports team called the Rockets. They play in the NBA. - FasterThanSonic
There are lots of dumb names on this list. This is the dumbest.V 4 Comments
? It fits perfectly with Phoenix, sunniest area in the US. What's wrong with suns? - Smash64
Shouldn't they be in New Orleans? - Smash64
Naming your team after a wimpy style of music. No other NBA team will ever view them as a threat.
Utah isn’t even known for jazz, that’s New Orleans. - JoeBoi
The name is actually short for knickerbocker, a name given to new yorkers a century ago, do your research bro
You spelt they're wrong and no their not fam your so bait
Pretty offensive to Native Americans. - JoeBoi
Racist. People are not mascots. What's next the Washington Caucasians or the Washington Hispanics? Stupid idea for a mascot. Native Americans deserve respect. This is their land, not ours. They were here first. - Smash64
Most racist Name ever
Where Are These Guys From? Candyland
Brown is not a mascot. Just doesn't make sense. - Smash64
Really? After their coach? Would the New England Belichicks be bad enough? - JoeBoi
Oh? So what about the Chicago Illinoisans or the Boston New Englanders? Naming your team after the state or region they play in is just absolute bull crap. - JoeBoi
Please choose a specific species of animals. Think...umm... coyotes. And the existing Coyotes should change their name to Cacti because that is what is in Arizona.
Funny, because it's "leaves" and not "leafs".
The ducks should be here.
They should have called this team the Toronto maples leavesV 1 Comment
Ok. How about team names like the Pittsburgh Pittsburghers or the Denver Denverans? - JoeBoi
They Should have stayed with the name Quakers, they have a role in the history of Philadelphia. "Phillies" just makes them sound lazy.
I'm confused what this name is supposed to mean. - Smash64
Not that is makes it a better name, but it is Cardinal and not Cardinals because the team is named after the color instead of the bird.
Why is Cardinal not a plural? -
Maybe Cardinal is an Indian tride in California - bisonSD
The 49ers? They haven't been diging up any gold lately 5-4
"Abracadabra, the ball's in the net now! "
This is the exact opposite of what I'd expect a Washington D.C. team to be called.
I don't recall there being any lakes in LA. - Smash64
When they moved from Minnesota to LA, they kept the team name, even though Los Angeles isn’t even known for having tons of lakes. - JoeBoi
This team should be in Michigan or back in Chicago. If they are going to stay in L. A. they should be "The Oceaners" - westofohio
Is there a lake in Los Angeles I didn't know about?
Really? Not everyone on a baseball team is all that athletic. Would you call a Chicago team the pitchers? - JoeBoi
This should be above the maple leafs.
Hate all 3 of their movies, hate the cartoon show and I absolutely HATE their hockey team. They are so not the mightiest ever, they totally suck.
Sounds like the name of a stripper - NicholasYellow
This was a men's Arena Football team from the late 1990's (! )
Just plain stupid!
"A tribute to the Triple Cities' rich carousel heritage, the Rumble Ponies is a herd of fierce horses that no carousel center pole can contain." It's funny because no one gives a flying french fry about carousels and the name is the polar opposite of fierce.
Adding "Rumble" in front of Ponies does not make it sound more fierce. - dsstew12
I was thinking of a different kind of nuts. - Smash64
Seriously NUT? Your mascot is a Nut...
I wish they were still the Rock Cats. Yard Goats is a retarded name. - Smash64
Who ever voted this is a jealous loser.
So dumb we all know they play in canaduh owned by a guy living in canaduh and followed by people from canaduh. Try and come up with a more creative name
Denver Chicken Nuggets - Smash64
The ISLANDERS? What the heck! People who live on an island do not call themselves islanders. At least the Lakers have a catchy name. But the islanders is not catchy. That is why everyone pays to see the Rangers and the islanders get no money. And no money causes them to suck every year!
It's named after Long Island, dude. To be honest, I really don't care if a Team Name is catchy or not. I'm just saying... - MusicalPony
There is nothing royal about Kansas City
It's a theme for the city (Royals, Chiefs, and we used to have the Kings) - Smash64
This should be 1
What the heck?!
Who names a team after a type of food? This name is the worst. - Smash64
Go back to Kansas City! California has too many basketball teams. - Smash64
Were there ever Kings in Sacramento?
All I can say is... Go Chokes!
All they need to do is put a space in between black and hawks. Now the mascot is a black bird. - Smash64
