Worst Sports Team Namesbooklover1
The Top Ten
This is just a bit of a stretch.
If they wanted to still represent Anaheim, why didn't they just stay there?
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
I'd like to know what the guy who said "yeah, that sounds good" was thinking. - BKAllmighty
This is just lame. - JoeBoiV 4 Comments
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.
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? - JoeBoiV 4 Comments
? It fits perfectly with Phoenix, sunniest area in the US. What's wrong with suns? - Smash64
Naming your team after a wimpy style of music. No other NBA team will ever view them as a threat.
Shouldn't they be in New Orleans? - Smash64
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
Brown is not a mascot. Just doesn't make sense. - Smash64
Really? After their coach? Would the New England Belichicks be bad enough? - JoeBoi
Pretty offensive to Native Americans. - JoeBoi
Most racist Name ever
Where Are These Guys From? Candyland
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
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
Funny, because it's "leaves" and not "leafs".
The ducks should be here.
They suck.V 1 Comment
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.
They Should have stayed with the name Quakers, they have a role in the history of Philadelphia. "Phillies" just makes them sound lazy.
Ok. How about team names like the Pittsburgh Pittsburghers or the Denver Denverans? - JoeBoi
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.
I'm confused what this name is supposed to mean. - Smash64
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.
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?
I don't recall 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
Really? Not everyone on a baseball team is all that athletic. Would you call a Chicago team the pitchers? - JoeBoi
Better than Lakers name. - Smash64
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.
They should move to Vegas. There's nothing magic about Orlando. - Smash64
Sounds like the name of a stripper - NicholasYellow
This was a men's Arena Football team from the late 1990's (! )
"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
Just plain stupid!
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
I was thinking of a different kind of nuts. - Smash64
Seriously NUT? Your mascot is a Nut...
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
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
