View Full Version : A "Name My Fantasy Team" thread for the rest of us

Evilbeth's thread is all about a specific themed league. This is the thread for those of us who are searching for a name for our teams and who are not working with those sorts of constraints.

I generally like team names that are irreverent and related to current NFL events. My placeholder name this year was I Passed The Physical, but given the latest gossip about Brett Favre, I changed it to Crocs On Rocks Off. Last year's was McNair: Out (Head), the year before was Vick's K9 Swim Team. I'm stuck with Yahoo's 20-character constraints, which is pretty limiting--hell, Roethlisberger alone is 14 of them!

Feel free to suggest more names and ideas--while I like the one I currently have, I'm always open to switching.

Ah, but "Big Ben" is only seven!

Sure wish I was better at naming fantasy teams. I've used the same name for the last six years or so.
