These singular sports team names are so shitty and have been popping up since the 90's. Why do they keep doing this?

It seems like most of the teams using English mascot names are in the American occupied zone, all the teams in the British area are using German spellings.

I go to watch the Cardiff Devils occasionally, it is honestly pretty weird, there are mostly Americans and Canadians in the actual crowd, and the entire team is Canadian/Yank.

Giants seasoner here. Yes we can only attract and afford like 2 lines worth of players, but you guys haven't seen an IPL soccer match. Luxury by comparison. Put it this way I got an extra role in a football film set in the 40s and nothing was done to make stadium look old. It wasn't needed.

The EIHL is a straight up goon league. Other countries like Sweden and Finland take it more seriously and play like if they are training for the Olympics and world cup etc.

Sheffield Steelers

Caleb James

The Steelers were named in honour of Sheffield's industrial past, much like the American football team of the same name based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the sharing of nicknames are merely a coincidence.

There aren't any decent ice rinks in London, they all bleed money and closed down. Now you only see pop up outdoor rinks for the Christmas season. There's been plans to have a KHL team in London based in the Wembley Arena but meh

I remember watching the Swindon Wildcats when I was younger. They played in our towns shitty ice rink and had a crowd capacity of about 50 people. I have no idea where they fit into the hockey league system though.

They literally could, and should, have named it the South Stars. Or after the Southern Cross

Caleb Jenkins

That sounds fucking awful. That means that a team in London would have to travel all the way to Vladivostok and vice versa. You can see a notable change in play when NHL playoff teams travel cross country, I can't imagine how awful that would be.

Some MLS teams have very American team names
Colorado Rapids
Houston Dynamo
Seattle Sounders
Montreal Impact
etc.
But yeah, it feels like MLS is trying it;s hardest to emulate euro teams these days.

Ryder Walker
Ryder Walker

I know, some names like Colorado Rapids FC or Vancouver Whitecaps FC or Portland Timbes FC, etc, are great names.

In the early days of the MLS though and to some degree now teams would just blatantly rip off european teams to make it sound authentic

DC United
Atlanta United
Minnesota United
Which clubs were united to form these teams?

Real Salt Lake
Why is this a 'royal' club and more specifically why is it spanish?

Sporting Kansas City
this doesn't sound like a blatant, cringy ripoff at all.

They're best using the typical NA naming structure of having the location with a regional nickname, and maybe 'FC' or 'SC' if they want.

It's pretty comfy though, reminds me of going to an old bowling alley. As mentioned, some of the fans are a bit odd, but then again I've seen plenty of mentalists at football matches.

How good do you have to be to play in the bong league?

Leo Reyes

Nottingham Panthers fan here.

Admittedly the names are pretty bad and the logos are worse (ours and Milton Keynes are probably the least shit), but it's a decent enough league and relatively well supported. It gets literally zero press though. In fact you have to go through about 4 menus on the BBC Website to get to the Hockey section.

Ian Hill
Ian Hill

The weird thing is, it's the only professional team-based sport in NA I know of that doesn't adhere to the standard NA name scheme of PLACE NICKNAME. It really is just people trying to emulate Europe because it's soccer.

Sounds like any sport that's not hockey, baseball, football, or basketball here. I enjoy box lacrosse and there's nothing out there for it here except one section on a local sports news website.

Mason Wood
Mason Wood

In the Elite League, most of the Canadians are AHL/ECHL rejects, or nearing retirement. Quite a few Europeans from second-tier nations, so no Swedes or Russians but Czechs, Baltics, lower division Finns.

Nottingham Panthers did alright in Europe recently, won the Europa League equivalent last season and got to the knockouts of the Champions League this year, out of a tough group.

In our league, it's basically all British players, mostly younger ones not picked up by Elite teams or sometimes older local players. There's some real shit teams with the realignment though, Hull Pirates beat Deeside Dragons 20-3 last week.
