What's in a name?

The Rockford RiverHawks have announced they will be changing the franchise's name in time for next season.

I have to admit, I liked the RiverHawks name and thought it was one of the better ones in the Frontier League. But after missing the postseason for five consecutive seasons, Rockford ownership wants a fresh start. Fans have been asked to submit nickname suggestions.

How about this suggestion: the Rockford Files?

No. That's even too dumb for independent baseball.

Washington needs to change their name.

How about Wild Cubs?
Washington Bandetoes?
The Stu-pids?

Anyone else have better names for them than Wild Things?

It truly amazes me to see an article posted here and it immediately turns into Wild Things bashing. Such a shame. What in the world does the name change in Rockford have to do with us here?

No, no, no. It's about the team not about the fans. Nothing the Wild Cubs do is EVER about the fans. What cave do you live in?
