think about it... there's NFL teams with birds, cats, mammals, and regional historical references for team names. but not one team has picked up on the idea of using dinosaurs.

how that hell has that been overlooked? can you imagine the marketing opportunities? can you imagine the fear of playing against a team called the Tyrannosaurs? why would you rather be a dumbass fish than some horrifying carnivorous Jurassic behemoth?

someone forward-looking GM should fix this. :nono:

Things could be worse, our mascot could be named after gay pirates.

Tell me you wouldn't love to see the Pittsburgh Procompsognathids take the field on sundays.

I'd be an instant fan.

I would love it, but I'm sure I'm in the minority.
