Not sure why that's stupid but what name do you prefer.

I don't like singular names.  They are stupid.

And this comes from a Buffalonian, who only thinks the name "Bills" is acceptable for a team name because he grew up with it.

I’m probably way overthinking this, but The Canucks will be Seattle’s Natural Rival and their mascot is a Killer Whale. One of the food sources for Killer Whales is salmon, particularly in the Northwest. I would eliminate Sockeyes for this reason alone.

Here comes the Krak-Heads and the Krak-House!

Would prefer they stay alliterative and go with the s###heads.  Because, ever since they moved their entry back a year, that is what they have shown to be.

I was going to go with alliteration and also violate 11’s singular rule. The Seattle Suck

Maybe in an homage to the bouncey ball team they lost & also the Sounders:  the Seattle Super Sucking Sounds.  That way EVERYBODY (except maybe 11, sorry 11) is happy.

I love that video they put together. Someone theorized in the comments to the post -- Sirens.

That could work.

Do we hate Seattle because they're already better than us?

I expect that Seattle will immediately be good. And it looks like there's a difference between buying an existing franchise for $189M and paying a $650M expansion fee.

Now, that could be fun watching them chose a name that evokes 1st responders at present.

That's as good as it gets (the video). (Say it as Jack Nicholson.)

Ha. I think siren arguably is suggestive of first responders. But I think that Sirens would be readily associated with the mythical creatures that haunt and imperil sailors. And that would make sense for Seattle, given how identified it is with the Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean beyond. Yet on the other hand, I would imagine that #cancelculture would scuttle an invocation of the sirens, as they are undoubtedly viewed in that sector as a misogynistic portrayal of women as dangerous temptations.

No, that's plural.

Breakers would be fine. I feel like there's another pro team with that name somewhere? Waves would be wack.
