What they should have been called
Let's discuss what various pro teams should have been called. I'll start of with two.

The Tennessee Titans should be the Nashville Kats because there are sixteen thousand eight hundred and twentyone guitar pickers in Nashville.

The Indiana Pacers should have been the Indianapolis Racers.

Isn't that an argument that they should have been called the Nashville Guitar Pickers.

I don't see any difference between Pacers and Racers. I think we can all agree that the Jazz have the wrong city for their name. I'd also argue that the Thunder have the wrong name and are in the wrong city. And while many of us are too young to remember, there haven't been any trolleys in LA to dodge for nearly 80 years.

Washington Redskins should have been the DC Caucasions

Chicago Bears should be the Hogs
Chicago Cubs should be the Pigs

Utah Jazz should be the Mormons

oklahoma city Thunder is ok, but really they should be the Frackers.

The Pacers are named after a pacer car, so they more or less already are.

The Lakers should have changed their name when they moved from Minneapolis.

when the Browns rebooted, they should have called themselves the Bulldogs.

Houston should have been able to retain the name Oilers, and that would have solved the "Titans" name
