    NBADL Info

    I heard this from a friend of mine who knows one of the owners of the team.

    The team name is going to be the Qwest Bulls. Yes, they sold the naming rights of the team.

    And yes, the team will be a Bulls affiliate.

    Interesting, I don't like how Des Moines or Iowa is not in the name. The Bulls would be a logical affiliate though.

    Yep...I really want a hat or a t-shirt that says "Quest Bulls". That is so dumb!

    That WOULD look dumb, especially when all the other shirts said QWEST BULLS on them. Just pokin' a little fun, no harm intended.

    Re: NBADL Info

    I know it is all about the Benjamin's, but come on. If you want your product to be seen as a high level (which it has been advertised to be) it just seems to cheapen the whole thing with a corporate sponsorship in the name.

    Especially Qwest, which in my experience knows nothing about the words excellence or customer service!

    What's wrong with sponsorship being in the team name??

    Re: NBADL Info

    When did the NBADL turn into a soccer league? Why not call them Real Des Monies?

    However, the Iowa Red Bulls would be a little easier to swallow.

    This is how it is done in the European professional basketball leagues!

    Everything is for sale! Did you ever see the movie Indecent Proposal?

    Heck, Clark TX even sold the name of their town to Dish Network (now Dish TX) to get every resident "free" satellite service for the next 10 years!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: NBADL Info

    How about the "Mercy Bulls"?

    Or "The Iowa Steakhouse Bulls"?
