    Hypothetically, if teams were placed in the following cities, what team names would you come up with? It doesn’t have to be the traditional Americanized version which is the city followed by a nickname, as it can follow the European model which uses names derived from historical references, figures, years, etc. Please be creative.
    Albany
    Albuquerque
    Atlanta
    Denver/Colorado
    Dayton
    El Paso
    Memphis
    New Orleans
    Ottawa
    Pittsburgh
    Sacramento
    San Antonio
    San Diego
    Syracuse

    Wow, those are some good looking kits. After my Milwaukee Bucks looked awful in urple and green I never thought I would see a team look good in it again. I mean seriously, it even lowered my views on the Harlequins jerseys.

    Yeah, not so much luck with funny names here...
    This, however, is real gem. Too bad a Pitt would never use it...

    This is an honest question: why does coming up with names for teams that don't exist give so many fanboys a big blue veiner?

    It breaks up the monotony of living in mom's basement?

    They suck at playing Halo online against twelve year olds.

    The girl at Starbucks said their ideas were cool....until she snuck into the ladies room and called 911.

    Just guesses.

    not a Halo player sorry, much rather would be playing some Rugby, Soccer, or D&D with some friends. Also hate Starbucks coffee. And I live in my mom's basement until next semester in college. need to save my money and such.
    I just want to be able to imagine Milwaukee being able to have a pro team again. Our College and High School soccer scenes are way under rated and I hate having to go watch the longest running professional soccer team in the country (The Milwaukee Wave) play the crappy game that is MISL. ugh.

    Anyways back onto things that have to do with the subject at hand.

    Virginia has been awarded a NASL franchise. They are running a naming contest over at naslvirginia.com and I was just seeing what you guys could come up with.My thought was Virginia Sport Club. Would look nice in abbreviation as VSC. I know a lot of Virginia Teams are based off of naval themes, so maybe something like Virginia Clippers? I would much rather see a European styled name, but that's just me.
