    Default Team Names, Logos, Colors, Etc.

    I'll kick this off too. If you have an idea, post your team name/colors/graphics etc. here, and from there we can try to get some sort of conference/divisional alignment going.

    I'll start with what I *think* would be my team:



    The Fresno Flow. I started out with the flow idea with a number of evenly spaced arrows around a ball, but it morphed into a bunch of different colored streams packed together. The name of the city dictated the color scheme, as the colors are taken from Fresno's flag. I ruled out towns like Orlando and Philly because they have NBA teams and Reno because it sounds too much like a medical term (ok, that may have actually been a selling point). I also ruled out Orinoco.

    I'm still toying with cities, names, and colors. I won't even try to put together a logo, since it'd be bound to look like ass no matter how hard I worked on it.

    The Colorado Puzzle Pieces


    I think I like that one. Tribute to my son.


    Multi-colored, jigsaw puzzle-like logo.

    I'm toying with three names/cities so far. Any preferences (or suggestions that I go back to the drawing board entirely)?

    1. Newark (NJ) Boppers (or maybe Hard Boppers) - Jazz theme, based on the great public radio jazz station WBGO
    2. Elizabeth (NJ) Demons - Generic name that I like, I liked living in Elizabeth and wouldn't mind putting a team there
    3. Philadelphia Gates of Hell - Rodin theme, based on the Rodin Museum that was almost spitting distance from my house in Philly; plays on the always popular "Philly is a hellhole" theme

    Leaning towards the Long Island Mallers at this point. Brown would be a team color, as the team logo could very well be a Bloomingdale's bag...

    I'm was thinking of North Virginia Supernovas, but apparently the plural of supernova is supernovae, so now I don't know what to do.

    Keep it singular. The North Virginia Supernova. That works

    Heavenside Grinders

    Grinder symbol near the bottom of the page (tried to attach the jpg and received a "no authorization" error). Thinking basic black and white, with perhaps an accent color of a bright green...

    I've settled on the Newark (NJ) Hard Boppers. Colors will be blue, black, and white, based on the cover of Sonny Rollins's Saxophone Colossus.

    Loathe as I am to take naming suggestions from an owner who called his team Discotheques, North Virginia Supernova it is.

    Colors are Royal Blue and White.

    Take Brooklyn. Having Brooklyn and the Bronx in the same league; epic!

    Most likely will go with the Great Basin Cartographers...although the Providence (RI) Groundcats and Bennington (VT) Franklins are still under consideration.
