    That will never fly, the West Seattle Population will file a lawsuit for infringement and defamation, that's what they do over there. If there is a cause they have a Axe to grind, if there is not they make one up.

  • What about Volcanoes? Those can be red and black. Why does everything have to be about water and rain around here?

    They could give the mascot a conical head with a big red mohawk and call him 'Lahar'.

    Done.

    Could be because the State was a Rain Forest before we killed the spotted Owls, and cut down the Trees, and it was all about the water ways when we were a logging area not to mention all the fishing. Our Hydro Electric Dams is another part of it.

    Yes we have a Volcano or two, but they are some other generations problem is how many look at it, why identify with something nobody wants to address.

    Absolutely not. I would refuse to root for a team that shares a name with a team from Portland.

    Have been around almost as long as the Sounders, they were Rivals in every MLS or Soccer league created and like the Sounders keep bring a team back with the name Timbers. This goes back to the 70's.

  • Well that explains it, as I have never grown to like Soccer myself. I like the other Football, nothing against Sounders fans just not my cup of tea.

    Every time the Sounders play Portland its announced that way, I really had not heard of a team called The Timbers and I am not young...…..( may also explain why).

  • All Ive learned from this thread is that they can't name the team because every name has been used by another pro sports team/college sports team/some team that belongs to something loosely defined as a sport (soccer)/someone wrote a fictional book about a team with that name/its to cliche/has nothing to do with Seattle (not cliche enough).

    A meh name for a meh team. That cut it in 1918. Now, it sounds no better than soccer teams that call themselves United, Alliance, or FC. Those are boring names that have no color and don't represent anything about their host cities or region.

    If they're called the Metropolitans, I will never buy any team merchandise. I don't rep stuff that doesn't rep me.

    Its just not right go'in around blasting people without giving us your opinion on the matter.

    So, what do you think a suitable name would be?

    I'm not negative. I've said since day one Sockeye fit Seattle (and hockey, with a light double entendre) better than anything else, and it has alliteration which I'm quite fond of. It's been the obvious choice for awhile now, and it seems to me people are grasping at straws just because they don't want a fish name. Well, I don't want a name that sounds like a generic minor league team somewhere nobody's heard of.

    Also, I might add, using Sockeye would lend itself nicely to using red as one of the team colors, which could make the team decidedly distinct from the Seahawks, Sounders, Mariners, or Sonics (if we ever get them back), as well as paying tribute to the Metropolitans without using the crappy name.
