It’s official. If Halifax gets a Canadian Football League team, it will be called the Atlantic Schooners, which is neither the best nor worst. With so many football leagues comes the problem of so many ghastly team nicknames as a result of everything from a lack of vision and redundancy, all the way to the challenges presented by political correctness.
Today, I thought I’d catalogue my Top 7 worst team nicknames.
Ghastly sports nicknames is likely a global phenomenon, but this list will be confined to North American pro sports teams. And, I’m steering clear of native nicknames.
Feel free to weigh-in in the comments section about your personal favourite worst, and in the meantime, enjoy my submission!
P.S. When you get to the number 1 worst ever team nickname in which an inspiring name was sacrificed in order to honour the franchise’s first head coach, Paul Brown, just consider the bright side that the name was merely boring.
