Often for me it has had something with "Hurtya" in it, as Hurtya is a nickname from camp. Or it might have Houston in it, as thats where I live.

Walden Warriors...

Walden serves as a convenient location, and the title of one of my favorite books.

Warriors is a reference to a.) my high school mascot, and b.) Stan Musial, who was called "baseball's perfect warrior, baseball's perfect knight" at his retirement ceremony.

I've won back-to-back league titles with it, so something's working!
Does your league need a quality, outside review of your league rulebook? Does your league not have a written rulebook? Contact me! I can help.

i use Elwood U. for every sport i do fantasy in.

Elwood is the name of my favorite Skate Company, and i just like stuff that put the U. at the end for university. i used to be Elwood University, but i think Elwood U. just looks cooler.

My names change more often than Ol Dirty Bastard's! I haven't thought about what to use this year. Last year the two team names I used were Viva Canseco! (Later changed to Free Canseco! for obvious reason. ;-) ) and The American Mullet, which was in honor of my country as well as the preferred hairdo of trailer trash and Wal-Martians everywhere!

My team names have changed quite a bit. Last year, I was Lam's Rams, DL All-Stars, The Merovingian, and On The Lam. I think I might stick with The Merovingian for a while.

My keeper league teams are Scrappers-RedHawks and High Heat. For the Scrappers my team always seems to have to scrap and claw to win. RedHawks were my high school team's name. And High Heat I picked because I had decided to use baseball metaphors for the names of all my teams and it stuck. ;-D

fantasy team names

Postby arky » Fri Jan 30, 2004 7:43 pm

My oldest existing team (1988 to present) is Hairy Fishnuts.
16 years...nine championships, four 2nds, once thrid, once fourth, once seventh.
Some of the other teams I have also run include the following... since 1984:
Chicken Chokers,
Midgaard Purple Ogres,
Pinnacle Mt. Oysters,
Loose Armholes,
Chute Troopers,
High Flop Pies,
Stud Bubbas,
Hollywood Love Doctors,
Parts Unknown
Flying Rearendos,
Dr. Terror's Team of Horrors,
Ain't Worth Spit, and
Tokemucho Roaches.

My .02 because I sure have fun shaping the personality of the team to its given name. Some come from somewhere (e.g. Hollywood, Midgaard)
But many just exist with arbitrary names.

Cannot stand for guys in my leagues to call themselves So & So Braves, So & So Cubs, and Whatever Mets. Or Nameless, Undecided, etc. ALL these type of names imply to me a player that hadn't even given thought enough to give the team a decent/ funny/ cute name. And lazy players....well, I just kick them around like they deserve.

Another thing I noticed over the years is that guys that give disparaging names to their teams don't hardly ever do well in the standings. Perhaps, because they expect so little of them and then they get what they expect. HAR HAR!
