XFL Team Name Speculation


So the day is finally here, each of the inaugural teams in the new XFL is scheduled to debut their team name and logo at 12:30 PM EST.  And as all of you know ever since the new league has been announced I have been excited about this, and as a fan of the original incarnation the new league I believe will be bigger and better than the past, and hopefully will last longer.  But with that being said I have decided to put my hat in the race on speculating what the team names will be from knowing what cities will host a team (Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Washington D.C.), to the teaser images that was released early this week, and the teaser video that was released yesterday.  So let’s begin.

The first team that up is New York.  For me, I’m going with the New York Gargoyles from the black and silver image to the gargoyles in the video package.  This seems like the best bet, it’s unique and a identity that has not been used for a sports team so it is one of a kind.  Also, if you put on your Sherlock Holmes Hat, the left Gargoyles similar to ones that can be found in searching New York Gargoyles on Google, so that helps my speculation.

Next Team: Houston.

Houston is a really easy one from the video showing an oil rig.  To someone working with power tools, to the orange black and red matching the colors.  I’m going with them to be called Houston Roughnecks, due to the fact they can’t be called Oilers, then the next best thing is RoughNeck.  It is a description of an oil rig worker.

Now on to Tampa Bay.

Tampa, like Houston, was another easy one as the teaser video showed a Florida swamp.  From the image that was a tease on Twitter, I’m going with the Tampa Bay Swamp Beasts.  It’s unique and not generic like Gators, but does describe what hopefully their looking to do with their Florida team.

Now to the little harder guesses.

The Washington D.C. Image from the teaser video has me going with them being called Washington Infantry, as it’s a military theme name that has not been used on a pro team, so it has uniqueness.  The image has your typical military team color Red White and Blue, and using the Patriots as an example, it just fits.

Dallas is next, and using a similar color scheme to the Cowboys in using the jet engine and air force pilot as there teaser, and I’m going with the Dallas Flyers.  As a city with a major Air force base I think this will fit for the brand that it is looking to have.

Seattle is one that can be easy, but still a guess I’m not fully behind, and that is Seattle Sea Dragons.  Now I say easy because Seattle Dragons was on the Trademark list that was leaked a few months ago, but by adding "Sea" in front of Dragons it gives it a unique connection to a Seattle football program.

St. Louis might actually be the team I will root for if this speculation is right.  From the teaser and image I’m going with St. Louis Archangels.  Yes, by the image and the teaser colors match, and the image looking like an evil person, this is just something that matches, and also the St. Louis arch on it just works.

Finally, we get to the last team - Los Angeles.  For me this is something I’m not fully for, but by the cancellation of other it has to be, and by fully going by the teaser video, I’m going with the Los Angeles Prowlers.  The city is L.A., and the animal is Prowling at night, so I’m just doing simple addition to put together that name.
