    The more I see what they did with Guardians the more I appreciate it. It works on about twelve levels. Beautifully done.

    We missed our chance. It should have been the Washington Bureaucrats.

      I mean, with Commanders still being a military name, you could still do "XXX on the warpath", but just pick something else for XXX.

      Also, later in the song they replaced "sons" with "all", so I'm assuming SteveP will drop in to tell us how this triggers him.

        While the term "Guardian" itself is a little vanilla, at least it ties into something in the city. There's, like, some actual item or physical entity behind it. It's not just a vague term, like Commanders. And Cleveland did a good job with the logo, which helps, it's something to identify with. Their logo isn't just another fucking "W", now with serifs!!! I'd prefer to remain the WFT rather than whatever the hell a Commander is.

          Well, if you truncate Commanders to Commies it's close, not angstrom close, but gettin' there.

                That's the gold standard test of a moniker these days. A little vanilla means smaller group that will find a problem.

                  • Kep, all three changed for the same reasons.

                    I've given up the old word unless I'm forced to use it (e.g. Sioux Falls, SD) and don't wear the old logo. I'm at peace with the change. I believe many Cleveland fans, being given a good choice, will come to same place soon.

                    That said, Hawks is vanilla.

                      They did. But it's your mewling about it that is grotesque. The victimhood of white male straight Christian conservatives is a true sight to behold.

                      Repeat after me: we got away with murder for 2000 years and then the rest of the world got sick of it, so now we can't have the entitlements we felt we were owed and which we made up bullsh-t stories about to hide the fact that they were based on oppression and rape and murder.

                      That's what happened. We came at the end of a long, long, long wave of everyone else's death and pain, and now we can't have the same goodies. That's all that happened, so stop your whining. In your private sphere be whatever you want and own it. In the public sphere, be aware that nobody feels sorry for you, nobody shares your feeling of being wronged, and everybody thinks you're just a big, fat, spoiled baby.

                          I have to assume mine is worse now.
