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 there's NFL teams with birds, cats, mammals, and regional historical references for team names.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:


Did i inspire this?

Velociraptor

This is the only one that would make any sense and it would, (though the fans would still not know how to spell it)...

What about Megalodon, the gigantic ancestor of the Great White Shark?

The Miami Megalodons. I can dig it.

i think Rhinos would be a decent team name. that was one of the options for the Panthers.

Insects don't seem to get any love when it comes to sports teams.
