  • Cleveland unveils Guardians as their new name.

    https://twitter.com/indians/status/1...472101378?s=21

    That would’ve been very far down on my list of possible choices.
    Go Green! Go White! Go State!

    Go Tigers, Go Packers, Go Red Wings, Go Pistons

    • That's awful. It's like what if we had a parody team from the fascist Earth of Starship Troopers.

      • Spiders was right there for the taking. Dissapointing. Apparently there are "Guardians of Transportation" statues coming into town and that's the inspiration for the name and winged G logo.

        Speaking of that G logo, with the wings it looks like Cleveland is the triple-A affiliate of the Angels....

              Exactly. It was perfection. But some Harvard MBA must have nuked it because marketing means we can only have things that appeal to high school C students.

                After learning about the statues I don’t mind the name, but there have to be about a thousand other ways they could’ve better incorporated the statues into the logo.

                  It's still a better football name (it has that testosterone derp) but I have always liked those statues and didn't know those were the name. That's more acceptable.

                    • The Minnesota Wild may have lost their claim to the worst nickname in American major league sports.

                        Not even close.

                        Anaheim Ducks and half the MLS* are worse than Guardians. But Wild still leaves them all behind.

                          • The statues and bridge are actually pretty cool...so in the grand scheme of things Cleveland related...it could be worse.

                              I get why people don't like this nickname because it was named after a movie. But as a (former) fan of the Long Island Ducks, I like Ducks.
