    Hawks name

    Having assumed ownership of the Carolina Hawks, I have noted that they are storied OTBL2 franchise and as such I have no wish to relocate them at this time. I do believe that a slight re-branding is in order, however. Please vote your conscience.

    Is it too late to find a different owner?

    Unfortunately for Carolina fans, their storied franchise is about to turn into a nightmare. Just call him Manny "HBO" Trillo lol!

    Upon further consideration, I would like to additionally propose as a write-in option a re-branding that would in fact relocate the team- conceptually though not geographically:

    USA Hawks of Freedom

    These results shock me.
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.

    I'm sorry, but there are federal laws that any team with "Hawks" in their name must smash it together with a completely unrelated noun to form a new, nonsensical, completely made up name. Freedom Hawks is close, but it could be improved, and it definitely needs to be one word. I suggest the FlagHawks, GunHawks, or BaconHawks.

    I went with Flying Hawks, because I never considered that these could be confused with Ground Hawks, and I appreciate the clarity.

    Actually, they can be classified as all three in some form.
