What's the worst team name?
Thu, September 13, 2007

It's no coincidence that the Anaheim Ducks weren't able to win the Stanley Cup until they dropped the "Mighty" from their name.

But even though the Ducks no longer have the most cringe-worthy handle in sports, there's still no shortage of brutal team names out there.

Top 10 worst team names

Five minutes worth of research would have told you that the LSU nicname, in actuality the 'Fighting Tigers', was derived from a Louisiana Civil War infantry unit of the same name. Leave the sports commentary to qualified individuals, please.

Minnesota Wild. Followed closely by Toronto Maple Leafs.

I think i like "The Edmonton Eaters of Raw meat" better than the Edmonton Eskimos.So really we should blame the Chipewayan"s for this racial insult.What about the Edmonton Chipawayans,would that be OK?

INUIT people exist; the word Eskimo is a racial insult. This is why I brought this up, because so few people in Southern Canada even realize that. It comes from a Chipewayan word meaning "eaters of raw meat" and it is not what the indigenous people of the Arctic call themselves. Years ago, it was socially acceptable to call a number of different ethnic groups by names which are now recognized as insulting; it's time that Canadians and the world learned that this is just another case of public education being needed.

How is Edmonton Eskimos a racial slur? Eskimos exist and nothing bad is inferred by the team name.

Anyways, the worst team name is the Columbus Blue Jackets.
