Ron not going to the rebrand drop, or the senior bowl may not be the end of the world, but it sure as hell isn’t a good look. As far as Mayhew & Gurney go, after last seasons draft I would hope MOST of the brain trust is scouring potential picks. So far that draft resembles a borderline bedshitting. Especially with a draft that is as paramount in year 3 of a rebuild.

It may be normal for a GM and his crew to attend such events without their coach, but this team has been anything but normal over the years, to include Ron’s tenure.

Was curious about how the Cleveland Indians Guardians rolled out their rebrand ... apparently, in a video. I'm sure there was more, but this is what the internet remembers.

It’s difficult to believe that that work of art was created so quickly. 😉

Right? Makes me think that they relied on focus groups and social influencers to come up with something they think will offend the least people, rather than inspire even one.

I’m worried our new logo will be similarly unburdened by style.

This is exactly my fear. That they picked a name they think won’t get them hate on Twitter. A name that satisfy the mob. The actual fans may hate it, but the Twitter mobs may love it. And let’s face it, that’s the world we live in.

If they wanted to satisfy the Twitter mobs they wouldn’t be teasing Commanders and Admirals etal, neither of which are thought of very highly.

Just sayin’.

I steadfastly maintain though that a misdirection ruse is being used.

Swamp Hogs would be appropriate. 😉

We are referring to the non football fan mobs, or at least I am.

How did I miss this new name?

Because the name and logo can be found in the dictionary next to "meh?"

I’ve been hesitant to call out the guardians name as stupid because I know who the next major team to get a new name will be.

If you didn't know it, it sounds dumb. But, there are actually two giant statues on the hope memorial bridge that "guard" it.

But the horrible logo is so bad. It's like the Walmart Thor helmet

Anyone of you twitter guys hear anything from the name squatter, Philip Martin McCaulay? Just curious if he was recently going to the bank as a result of one of the names he originally marked.

chances are if he owned the rights to the new name, and they bought off of him, silence would be part of the requirement...

And I haven't heard from him in about a year now. It's very possible he had ownage and there was a confidentiality agreement as part of the purchase agreement.

Has ‘Warriors’ officially been shut down? Was thinking about that and instead of redwolves, (which the team allegedly shutdown) I could live with the ‘Washington Wolfpack’

Warriors, and anything including Wolves, have all been ruled out by the team. Which is only natural, as they're far and away the most popular.

It’s gotta be commanders or admirals, it makes sense because it doesn’t make sense.
