They got that right

Maybe it’s been done, but I would like your opinions on the best football team names and/or logos. I’ve done this for the worst of both, and they’re always fun.
As always, any league, past or present. Thanks for playing.

For the CFL, I like the Stampeders name, and TigerCats logo.
For The NFL The Raiders name, and The Vikings logo.
Canadian university name I like is Acadia Axemen, and Carleton Ravens new logo.

CFL: although I’m a Bombers fan, I’ve always liked the Stamps’ running horse logo.
NFL: gotta go with the Rams. I preferred the classic blue/yellow before they tinkered with it.
NCAA: I guess Michigan State but I’ve never been a fan of green as a color.

I'm fond of two of the newer CFL logos, in the Als and Elks.

The new Argos boat logo is OK, but too lacking in Cambridge blue.

For USports, I like the Carleton Ravens too. And the Laurier Golden Hawks.

In the CJFL, the Valley Huskers have a unique name and logo.

Wow. Three picks for the Ravens.

Best logo topic comes up every so often and the winner always of course is:

Hartford Whalers.

I've always liked the TigerCat and Stampeder logos (although my favorite colour scheme is still blue gold and white).
Our CFL expansion logos from the 1990's were really well done. My two favorites were created for the Gold Miners and the Stallions:

My favorite AFC and NFC logos belong to the Raiders and Vikings.

St Louis Battlehawks? Never heard of them.
So I had to look...

Really interesting logos. Cool even. This is what Romulans would look like if they waged football instead of interplanetary conquest.

Me as well, although I think the Raiders name doesn’t exactly strike fear into their opponents since they moved.

I like the name and logo.

'Oakland' just fit the whole pirate scourge lair image so perfectly. Now if only the Vikings were based in 'Vineland' or better yet, 'Thrudheim, the realm of Thor' instead of 'Minnesota'.

maybe what we need is some innovative renaming.

Something to play around with here for you guys. Love the name 'Asshats' to be honest. Hmmm, Toronto Argonaut Asshats, that sounds ok I'd say.

This one looks neat, you can fill in the boxes:

The Raiders have a great brand and mystique that never gets old lest you are in their division or those Steelers, and they win for the best song and it's not even close.

How about the Montreal Machine?

Well give them a chance now. The timing was unlucky given the first season was the pandemic season. They really only have played one full season with fans in the Death Star, and it was a success.

The Super Bowl will be there before too long.

They are late on arrival after arriving in Las Vegas, but no doubt there is going to be quite the show now.
