RE: OT: New Name for Indians
The Spiders were a National League team and I believe had one of the worst seasons in history (20-100 something) if not the worst. No thanks. Actually Paul Hoynes had an excellent story on cleveland.com which is worth reading. He explained how the older fans feel about it pretty well.
The last things the Indians need is to lose corporate sponsors. They really had to do it. Also I never knew the Hope Memorial Bridge was named after Bob Hope’s father because he actually did some of the work on the sculpture. Learn something everyday.

I don't think he was saying the liked it for the Indians. I think he was responding to me using it as an example of a name people didn't like at first, but now seems normal.

RE: OT: New Name for Indians
Burden, yes I remember it when it was named after Bob Hope's father. My bet is that most people still call it the "Lorain - Carnegie Bridge", though. An interesting side note on that - according to a Plain Dealer article at the time, when the renovated bridge was dedicated under its new name in the early 1980s, Bob Hope was invited to speak, but Hope wanted to be paid! I'm not sure if that report is true, but it sounds like Bob Hope.

RE: OT: New Name for Indians
I kind of like 'The Guardians' just because it has a connotation of being responsible for something. The current culture is so caught up in self-interest, it is a good change of pace.

I have to admit, it doesn't flow off the tongue so well. It ends up coming out as 'Gargantuans'. I'd suggest using 'The Guard' for informal reference.

I was voting for the 'Ghoulardians'

But of course, they'd better license the Marvel figures, and have Groot, Rocket, Gamora, etc from the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' in their advertising. I think if they can swing things right, they might be able to get someone like Albert Belle added to Marval's Guardians of the Galaxy

I find it very hard to believe that they didn’t already know this and have taken care of it. If I owned the rights to the name, I would sell it pretty quickly for a decent cash payout because that’s the only way you will ever make any money off of it.

I am feeling better about the name a week later, but still think they could have done better.

RE: OT: New Name for Indians
I wonder if Dolan can have the Cleveland Baseball Corporation sell the 'Cleveland Indians' name to himself. I'm sure there will be t-shirt sales for a long time from now. It might be more profitable than the baseball team itself

I believe they'll continue to hold the trademark for the old name and logos. So pretty much any Cleveland Indians merchandise going forward would just be them selling off what has already been made, I would assume.

The baseball team has not secured the name

Looks like they got enough money from the city, state and county to pay off the roller derby team. Maybe they can even find a right handed outfielder??
