On the upside, no one would have known who they were if they didn't have this name.
 
2013-04-24 02:36:42 PM
How about the Boston Bullets?

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: How about the Boston Bullets?


Rumor is "Boston Bulldogs."

I can't see how the name "bull dogs" could possibly be corrupted or distorted for satirical purposes by opponents of this women's basketball team.

I was curious why this story was tagged "Douglas A-20 Havoc". The Brit version was called the "Boston", apparently.

Just leave it as Bombers.

Where do the tags come from?  Is that a modmin thing?

Pussies. This Political Correctness has *ruined* this country. Wah Wah Wah...just cause a couple people ate it and some needed band-aids on their boo boos. Jebus Jumping Christ on a Pogo Stick *ON* a Cracker.

"The Bombers' sister team, the Crazy Ass Cambridge Chechens, is also said to be considering a marketing shift, much as Connecticut's triple-A baseball team, the Newtown Sociopaths, was forced to do in December, according to our imagination, which finds these things funny and not too soon. "

Now I'm wondering how much of the article is real, if any.

Don't change a thing, players. Don't let them change you.
 
2013-04-24 03:27:27 PM
Hmm... I'd keep the name just as another FU and use the DK Murphy's "Sailing in to Boston" as the theme song.

Years ago, the Washington Bullets thought about changing their name because of the negative connotation and implied violence. They didn't though, they are still named after Washington.

No clue. I'm new here. Has to be automated. No mod, no matter how big of a propellerhead like me, would do that.

Well - they should call themselves the Boston Beavers then.

How about they just change their mascot to a vaugely tan teen with black curly hair?

I thought the same thing, Some other news sites confirm though. Annnd

Look at the link on the top right, they haven't fixed it yet.

I'm an alumni of the Bombers.  Midwest City Bombers.  Bad time to root for that team...
 
2013-04-24 03:33:38 PM
How about not being pussies and sucking up and not changing?
 
2013-04-24 03:33:48 PM
yeah LA had the same problem with the Manson Family Knives when they got a hockey team....

maybe they could name it something offensive with a smattering of genocide...something aboriginal....

If only there were some sort of hyperlink to other news sites one could click through in the article to verify that it's true... or perhaps some kind of "according to" text at the bottom to indicate the last paragraph is a joke.

In light of recent events, it is time to reconsider how we refer to the Colorado Avalanche hockey team.

/it should just be "Colorado Avalanche"

They should rename themselves the Terrorists. So, whenever they win, we can say the Terrorists have won.

One of my favorites is the Richland WA high school Bombers.    Their logo is a mushroom cloud.

"In 1988, amidst visits by Tom Brokaw (NBC Nightly News) and Japanese delegates, a vote was taken by the students making the Bomb (with the Mushroom Cloud logo) the official mascot of Richland High School "

Richland was one if the major development sites for the USA's first atomic bomb
 
2013-04-24 03:37:44 PM
Why should they have to change their name? Djhokar's the one who sucks.
 
2013-04-24 03:37:57 PM
Quite the pressure cooker for them to find a new inoffensive name.

To all of you guys who have had it up to here with this libby lib political correctness crap, how about we name them the Boston Freedom Fries?

How about the "Boston Muslims"

Because it's never Islam.

Overly-sensitive bullshiat thinking. They're probably only talking about it for the publicity.
