    Original Team Name for London's NFL Team.

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Bobby Burrows, Oct 31, 2018.

    I don't want The Jaguars, the London Jaguars, doesn't really do anything for me.
    But whenever Jacksonville play in London I'm supposed to think that's my home team?
    No, I was rooting Super Bowl winners Philadelphia Eagles last week because that's my team if I'm to have a team anyway and they came to town.
    But, if I'm to have a team, why do I have to have the Jacksonville Jaguars?

    Lions is taken by Detroit, so London can't have a team called Lions...
    And since we seem to be getting the worst team in the NFL, idk.
    Can't we rename it?


    Names for London's NFL team?



    The London Busses
    Make a double decker bus costume for the mascot I guess, IDK.

    The Crisps?
    Teamy McTeamface?

    Jaguars does seem out of place there.

    I don't like that team, and, they're trying to sell this sucky team to me.
    I mean, they even dined and dashed on a $64k bar tab after partying, they suck.

    So, I'm hoping a rebrand.

    Send them to Manchester and call them the Mancunians, but, London?
    London Towers is already our basketball team, but I like that name.

    I like that too.

    It's too bad "Lions" is taken. Isn't that a symbol of Britain?

    Yeah, too bad Lions is taken for this reason.


    Hmmmm...

    Jaguar cars come from Birmingham way, but, this is London, different part of England.

    Maybe?
    The London Regents
    In honour of the NFL taking over Regents Street, in the middle of London to promote the NFL back in 2014, because that was a surreal experience for me when the NFL was all up and down Regents Street.

    I'd get behind that team, 'The London Regents'.
    Just because of the NFL on Regents Street that time.
    IDK.

    The London Bridges
    Since London Bridge is now in Pheonix or somewhere in AZ, why not pay homage to having one thing move from London, and one thing move to London,.
    IDK.

    But then, there's a song about that bridge falling down, so, IDK, might not help the team.

    Or might make for a
    The London Bridge is going to fall down on you, Go London Bridges
    chant, IDK.

    It's also in London, it's like, yeah, we just replaced it lol.
    It was nothing iconic here anyway here - just a road bridge.
    It's not like Tower Bridge, which is a one of a kind, but, you, Lake Havasu seem happy, London seems happy, why not.

    I wonder how long that took to sell, move, and rebuild in London and the one that went, how long that took to resemble;

    I mean, I was born in 1986, so, I don't remember, probably wasn't even born.
    My grandmother is 94 and a lifelong Londoner, seems like this was done in her lifetime, but, it's not even a big deal here, for some reason, so I wonder, how long did it take? IDK


    Some reason we're in the NFL but IDK, it's Jacksonville, but they're ours? IDK.
    I don't like them though, just because they suck.

    Oregon doesn't even have an NFL team, that's kind of sad.
    Their Ducks are great in college football though.

    Why can't Eugene get an NFL to share with the Ducks and Oregon State?

    Too small. Portland would probably be the only market that could support a team in Oregon.

    Smaller than Green Bay?

    Still, Portland's a good place, yeah, give Oregon some NFL representation, just thinking of that stadium in Eugene though.

    Bring the NFL to that, give Eugene a team.

    The owner of The Jacksonville Jaguars also owns Fulham, I've worked there putting up those stadium lights this year..
    My local team, Crystal Palace F.C. are also called The Eagles; and they're now owned by the same person who owns The Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL.

    Names for London's NFL team?

    Not smaller than Green Bay, but I feel like there’s a historical reason for a team being there and it also has a good sized metro area around it.

    A football team might take their name for London's Coat of Arms.

    The London Dragons

    Nike coming from Eugene is historical enough for me lol.
    But, really?; I had no idea about Green Bay other than they're the smallest NFL franchise.
