    Des Moines NBDL takes back Names

    Looks like it won't be one of the five stupid names they put out as finalists.

    Re: Des Moines NBDL takes back Names

    I bet it's the Des Moines Skywalkers.

    That's not a bad name IMO.

    Those 5 names were autrociously bad.

    A radio talkshow host mentioned there was a problem with the name skywalkers because of trademark conflict with Star Wars Luke Skywalker. Not sure if that is true or not. Seems like a pretty broad use of a trademark.

    Re: Des Moines NBDL takes back Names

    Asked if the nickname controversy was simply a publicity stunt to drawattention to the team, Crawford only laughed.
    He should talk to Pollard about pulling stunts, because that one sucked eggs. Even if it wasn't, it just shows a lack of authority on his part.

    Probably the same thing I'm going to do with my "The wizard gave me a heart" t-shirt. Wear it proudly.

    If those names were a publicity stunt...my hats off to them. That created A LOT of discussion.

    I'd buy a Des Moines River Rat shirt

    Re: Des Moines NBDL takes back Names

    So let me get this straight- two days before they're going to announce the new team name, they pull the entire list of finalists, and still plan on announcing the name and logo on Friday? That makes me really hope that this whole thing was just a planned publicity stunt, and they actually have had an awesome name and logo secreted away for weeks now...


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    That's what i'm putting my money on. I wonder if any team in the NBADL has had this much publicity without playing a single game.
