There should be a multi-sport tournament for the racially insensitive team names.


Pekin Chinks vs. Fighting Whites

Dangerous Darkies vs. Washington Redskins

They left the new Omaha UFL team name up to a fan vote. The Omaha Zombies won. It is a good thing they said F that and went with the Nighthawks. That is better but the mascot is not good.

Oakland Raiders
San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs

all ridiculous names.

i propose these new ones.

Oakland Sex Offenders
San Diego Gay Metrosexuals
Kansas City Mulleted Rednecks

also, the team in Indianapolis should be renamed the Indianapolis Cow Molesters.

IIRC, they moved from Minnesota.

Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, hence the logic behind their name (when they were there).

Also someone mentioned Utah Jazz but that team came from New Orleans. Sometimes you need to change the name when the surroundings dont fit the nickname.

Several things come to mind here, but then I'd have to ban myself, so I'll just shut up.

"The Minneapolis Lakers moved to LA, where there are no lakes. The Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee, where there is no oil. The New Orleans Jazz moved to Utah, where they don't allow music. The Oakland Raiders moved to Los Angeles and then back to Oakland, no one seemed to notice."

I love Santa Cruz.

However, the populace of that beautiful place has to be one of the stupidest in the country. Last time I was there, I only encountered only a few people who werent stoned or hungover or both. Its a town of the slow, so maybe the banana slug is apt. ;D

And why Kansas City Winners was an awful name. Of course i made it up. If they really had that in town, it would confuse the sheat out of the mullets.
