Worst Sports Team Names


The Top Ten

1 Houston Texans Houston Texans The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

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.

Texans is a stupid name

2 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

This is just a bit of a stretch.
If they wanted to still represent Anaheim, why didn't they just stay there?

I'd like to know what the guy who said "yeah, that sounds good" was thinking. - BKAllmighty

Well it's no wonder they have a stupid name considering they used to be owned by disney.

3 Utah Jazz Utah Jazz

Naming your team after a wimpy style of music. No other NBA team will ever view them as a threat.

4 Phoenix Suns Phoenix Suns
5 Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto Maple Leafs The Toronto Maple Leafs are a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario, that competes in the National Hockey League.

Funny, because it's "leaves" and not "leafs".

The ducks should be here.

They should have called this team the Toronto maples leaves

They suck.

6 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

7 Modesto Nuts

Seriously NUT? Your mascot is a Nut...

8 Stanford Cardinal Stanford Cardinal

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.

14 Los Angeles Lakers Los Angeles Lakers The Los Angeles Lakers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles, California, that competes in the National Basketball Association.

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?

15 Miami Floridians
16 Minnesota Wild Minnesota Wild

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.

17 Middletown Middies
18 Philadelphia Phillies Philadelphia Phillies

They Should have stayed with the name Quakers, they have a role in the history of Philadelphia. "Phillies" just makes them sound lazy.

19 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The 49ers? They haven't been diging up any gold lately 5-4

20 Boston Red Sox Boston Red Sox The Boston Red Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Boston, Massachusetts, that competes in Major League Baseball.
