Team Names

Postby C2ThaLo88 » Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:56 pm

What do you guys like to do with your team names? This year I'm thinking about incorporating my keepers into my team names. After seeing the ESPN fantasy football commercial, where they show all the losing teams and the owners crying or pouting because they lost, I realized my team names were not nearly creative enough. So I've been trying to think of different ideas lately and was curious to see what others do.

Ha!


I've used Lt. J. Dangle a few times, that usually gets a laugh.

Usually all of my team names are puns based on the players that I have. But until the draft or if I can't find a nice pun I'll ride with Smoove's THUGS.

My team names suck, they are unoriginal. But hey, why mess with a good thing?

Last year was pretty good - Anzac Aces. ;-D

This year slim pickings for ideas so far,
Pink Zeppelins and Southern Hemisphere Scorpions top the list. Yuck.

I've gone with "Lil Yella Bus Riders" for my keeper team, especially with the way its performed.

i find that those names which spoof on an actual player's name (honey nut ichiros, Hughes a Ho, et.al.) are the most original. There is a thread to this effect somewhere else in the cafe, but i'm too lazy to suss it out :*)

I've used Choi's Asian Fetish for years now, based on Hee Seop Choi. Unfortunately I think that is my masterpiece, as i've not been able to come up with another one I like anywhere near as much.
