That's been vetoed by OVG.
Good. Sounds goofy. Still hoping for Sockeyes.
Dang. Ah well, there's promise with some of the other names.
When I hear Sockeye
Or an image represented by this, dumb fish gets caught by Bears.
My favs are easily Emeralds and Metropolitans with Sockeye and Totems lagging far behind. I'd be okay with any of those. I'll definitely be following this team since Vegas turned out to be a bit too much of a meme for me. I also love Frasier, rainy weather and somewhat enjoy grunge music from time to time.
I don’t think San Jose will give up burns
The Kraken just didn’t have the ring to it anyways, could have been a cool name, logo and stuff but kinda seemed like a square peg in a circle hole.
My favorite is the Seattle Sorcerers. I don’t even think its on the list but here’s what I like about it:
Connects to emerald city/wizard of oz. High skill players get referred to as wizards. Alliteration is kinda nice. I might be mistaken but a quick search didn’t turn up any pro teams with that name. Solid mascot/logo.
Yeah, games against Boston would be disastrous.
Give it to the XFL team
They should name the Seattle franchise the Washington Metropolitans.
Seattle may have been the jumping off for the majority of the rushers, and the significant supply center, but the action was in the Yukon/Klondike. Most folks won't get the reference as their history starts in the late 20th or 21st centuries, not the 19th.
I helped recreate the 1895 SS Portland landing (ton of gold) that helped kick off the Klondike God Rush in 1995. Even made cover of section of Seattle paper and was quoted by AP writer. Descendant of one of the Klondike Kings.
Two things this franchise should not have
1) Geographical based animal names - real or mythological.
2) Earth tones for team colors.
My two favorites are Seattle Evergreens and the Seattle Sea Lions.
Sockeyes is definitely the dumbest.
Am I the only one that thinks the Seattle Wizards could fly, as in a (too obvious?) 'Emerald City' reference?
If the arena were in San De Fuca...
Nope. Sockeyes sounds the best. Has a great ring to it and rolls off the tongue perfectly.
A victim fish that sounds like Cockeyes.... real badass!
$5 says if suggested to name a team today the 'Maple Leafs', or the 'Canadiens' - chances are you'd get laughed at.
Totems is my #1 choice...Sockeyes is #2 (or Chinooks, or Steelheads would work).
Could play with the color scheme (although it's the colors on the NHL Seattle site), but this logo concept is top notch IMHO...
Lmfao... Wooden drawbridges hahaha... Tryin not to wake up everyone (5am)... Good stuff tho thanks
So? A totem is a work of art created by Native Americans. You can't name a sports team after a work of art now?
Did I say you can't?
Maybe you can just be blunt I tell me if you object to the name Totems.
I still love the Breakers but no traction for old Junior names I guess.
Separate names with a comma.
