Cause this dude at the NY Daily News certainly does:
"I am, first of all, unaware of another name in professional sports that references an object on that sport's playing field. It would be absurd to call a football team the Endzones or a baseball squad the Outfields..."
"[The Brooklyn Nets] sounds bad, and it means nothing."
I mean, I guess he kinda has a point.
I'm sure it's no surprise that Mr. Ranty McRanterson also came up with a few suggestions for replacement names that he'd like us to all meditate on:
- The Brooklyn Commodores
- The Brooklyn Abolitionists
- The Brooklyn Rhymes
- The Brooklyn Bums
- The Brooklyn Monarchs
- The Brooklyn Knights
- The Brooklyn Eagles
Personally, I don't like any of those. I think the clear choice, nay, the ONLY choice, would have to be The Brooklyn Raccoons.
