Football in America has seen it all, heard it all and even done it all. From the worst team to the worst season, the best crowd to the most boring fans, people can forget a lot of things about teams, but rarely do you find them forgetting the team’s name. Interestingly enough, research has it that the weirder name, the longer it is likely to stick in our memories. So does that mean some teams simply chose weird names to augment remembrance among football fans or even encourage NFL betting fanatics to sort-of love them? Well, that’s a debate for another day. For today, let’s take a look at some of the strangest teams names and find out why some teams are seemingly popular than others on a name-basis.
All over America, this name has been considered as one of the most racially insensitive team titles in the league. Worse is if you consider the era we are in and a team has still held on to such a name. No one would dare call any Native American a Redskin, but here they are, in one of the biggest sports franchises in the world. The Redskins however have a sort-of good explanation for it, with most reports saying the team got this name as an honor to their former coach William Henry “Lone Star” Dietz who was a Native American.
