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
The Toronto Maple Leafs has to be the worst team name ever - mainly because of the word Toronto, which has all kinds of negative connotations like racism, bigotry, stupidity, privilege, wealth, incompetence... you get the point.

Redskins is no more aa recial slur than Blacks using White man or whites using Blacks.
Look at the colour of the skin if you don't believe me.
The worst name in sports history, in my view is Red Devils. Anything Devil has me cringe. This is plain wrong.
