It's true. A cardinal is a little p***y bird. Not even a raptor. Just a little tweeting bird that gets eaten. Has nothing to do with it being your team.

And the fly into windows because they are stupid. Proof

Nuggets is the worst name in team sports. Reminds me of Chicken McNuggets. Or butt nuggets.

Names in general are pretty lame. Most teams (on the international level) just stick with their city names. Nothing wrong with being called San Francisco with the SF logo on our helmet. 49ers ? Really ?

Hornets ?
Raptors ?
Orioles ?
Red Sox ?
Packers ?
Browns ?

The entire system is a joke.

lol wut. Says the guy with 49ers in his name. You should just be cook

Los Angeles Dodgers

The whole thing about how names are dumb and it should just be the city, like how it is Internationally....Well teams like BARCELONA, or MANCHESTER UNITED....There is only 1 sport they play, so you're guaranteed to know who they're talking about. If the Jets, Giants, Mets, Yankess, Knicks, Nets, Red Bulls, Rangers didn't have names, I sure as hell wouldn't wanna guess who everyone was talking about. It is crucial in the US.

Having said that there are dumb names. Although I like Pelicans. I don't really care how "fierce" of an animal or thing a mascot is. Who really cares if a bird is weak like a cardinal, or a realllllllllly fierce rare one like an eagle? No one. A Pelican is much more unique though, and is going to be easier to market IMO.

For me, creativity and the way it fits your city is all that matters.

Ones I like: 49ers, Packers, Yankees, Knickerbockers, Pelicans etc.-

Ones I don't like that really didn't take thought or don't make sense for a city: Bengals, Cowboys, Jaguars, Wild, Raptors, TEXANS, Hawks etc

Barcelona plays other sports too.

...and Cowboys make perfect sense for any team in Texas.

Really? I'm sure in San Fran people play handball, pool, backgammon...but they don't matter. I'm sure Barcelona plays other sports, but let's be real clear, it doesn't come close to soccer....I doubt their other sport have figures like Lionel Messi, plus they throw FC after so you know it futbol.

and I have lived in Dallas for 6 years....I haven't seen a cowboy yet. Maybe in Austin, Lubbock, Waco etc, or anywhere else but Dallas

Edit-yes I realize cowboys works in texas, I am just biased in my hate for the team since I live there... you're probably right
